Last year, I had the opportunity to attend two Ultraceuticals events, as well as meet the founder and director of Ultraceuticals, Dr Geoffrey Heber. Ultraceuticals was first established in 1988 as a concise science-based skincare, addressing major skin issues such as acne, pigmentation and ageing.
“I have spent over twenty years as a cosmetic physician working with clients exposed to one of the hardest conditions in the world – the Australian sun.” – Dr Geoffrey Heber.
Ultraceuticals believes that everyone can achieve a healthy and radiant skin when using effective skincare that doesn’t have to carry a high price tag. Products that are free of harsh chemicals, free of propylene glycol, parabens, synthetic dyes and fragrances, and that deliver real visible results. Ultraceuticals products are 100% certified cruelty free and ingredients used are obtained from non-genetically modified and environmentally sustainable resources.
The following products have been incorporated with my morning and evening skincare regiment since October 2016.
*Ultraceuticals Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF 30 Mattifying 100ml AU$74 – This daily moisturiser is a lightweight formula that protects the skin from harmful UVA & UVB rays to help reduce the signs of premature ageing. It contains a blend of moisturising ingredients such as Shea butter, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol and Nicotinamide to help support the skin’s lipid barrier function without clogging pores. It has a non-greasy, shine-free and non-white cast finish. This is suitable for normal to oily skin types.
*Ultraceuticals Even Skintone Serum Mild 30ml AU$99 – This even skintone serum helps to exfoliate, clarify and refine the surface of the skin. It is recommended to use once daily, rotating a few other facial serums and oils every other night. My skin had improved its texture–now it is smooth, soft and radiant. This serum contains moderate levels of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), Bearberry Extract and Niacinamide, and is a formulation that is perfect for first time users of AHAs and BHA, as it is also suitable for people with sensitive skin types. This is suitable for all skin types.
*Ultraceuticals Ultra Hydrating Lotion 75ml AU$76 – This lightweight and fast absorbing lotion helps to hydrate and restores suppleness to the skin. The lotion helps to strengthen the skin’s lipid barrier function for long-lasting hydration. This is lovely to wear pre-foundation as it will keep skin hydrated all day and provide a shine-free finish. This is suitable for normal to oily skin types.
Overall, I found these products to work in synergy with other brands I used in my daily skincare routine. As the days and weeks progressed, I have noticed a significant change to my skin’s texture, it’s not as coarse or bumpy, rather more smooth and flat. I hardly experience acne, unless it’s that time of the month, which we can all rule out to be hormonal! The other brands have also contributed to the success of how my skin has been glowing in recent times. I will continue to monitor my skin’s journey and in the near future can provide updates on any new skin improvements.
