What is the key Ingredient?
Black Ginseng & ATP complex. Black Ginseng is a strong anti-oxidant with comparable efficacy to L-Ascorbic Acid (How cool is that.) It has the ability to protect skin by reducing collagenase, an enzyme which breaks down collagen and elastin. It has collagen boosting effects, offering comparable power to TGF-1, (Transforming Growth Factor 1) to enhance collagen production in the skin and rebuild skin.
The ATP complex is to ensure the skin is working at its best with optimal cell functioning. Like most things our skin needs "energy" to function. Like making sure our skin cells repair themselves when damaged. This is particularly important in pre-mature ageing & ageing skins. Why? Everything starts slowing down and it gets more sluggish, that is why this ATP complex will ensure the Black Ginseng does the job well!
Who can use it?
It is suitable for most skin types! Personally I would say combination, dry & sensitive. It is not an oily moisturiser as it contains glycerine & squalane which makes it extremely velvety & luxurious. It is great for skin conditions like: Dehydration, crepey skin, fine lines, dry, flaky or tight. I personally think its a great barrier repair or a simple product to lock in all your active serums.
What is it best paired with?
SKIN Functional has some incredible active serums, however I have personally been loving using the exfoliating glow tonic (6% glycolic acid) or 4-5 drops of the Multi-Tasking Fixer prior to my moisturiser application. Dewy, glowing, plump & hydrated!
My Final Thoughts
I definitely can find myself using and loving my entire tube. I love that you can use it morning and night, this make your routine less complicated and some just more effective. A-lot of the time my skin looks and feels so much more healthier when my routine is 3-4 products. Price point (R290) I think is fantastic as I know many find It hard to find a good moisturiser without breaking the bank. Overall an elegant, simple yet effective moisturiser.
