Simply put, cosmeceuticals are beauty products such as moisturisers, serums and eye creams that are full of extremely high concentrations of biologically active ingredients.  It is claimed by most cosmeceutical brands that these products can be used to combat the ageing process and achieve results to envy cosmetic surgery and invasive treatments such as Botox….but at a fraction of the price and with no needles!

Although you may be cynical, it appears that many aren’t. The Cosmeceuticals market has doubled in the past five years and is set to double again by 2016. It is reportedly worth over 102 million pounds, proving that many women (and men) must be experiencing amazing, noticeable results.

With the going rate for a facelift somewhere around the £5k mark, you really can’t afford to ignore the Cosmeceuticals trend. Here’s our pick of the best now available at – guaranteed to turn back the clock, without going near a knife!

  • Preventative Treatments

It’s never too early to start using night treatments! Alpha H Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum when applied 2 to 3 nights a week after cleansing and before your preferred night cream will take years off. Bath & Unwind customers using this product have reported a “noticeable tightening” of their skin, particularly their forehead and eye area within three months!

  • Crow’s Feet

Dr Brandt Time Arrest Eye Serum ( a celebrity favourite) uses unrivalled technology  to smooth out crows feet and provides a more lifted appearance. I can’t say who the gorgeous,  well known women of L.A are who swear by this product, but I can assure you they are certainly a great advert for it!

  • Boob Job/Tummy Tuck

It’s not just the face that sometimes needs a little extra work. Mama Mio Bootcamp for Boobs Kit is also know as a ‘Boob Job in a Box’ by it’s fans. Using another concoction of active ingredients to fight the sag and droop, this product gets 5 stars from every customer that has reviewed it.  Some people have even admitted to using it on their face… but you didn’t hear that from me!

  • Instant Face Lift

Perricone MD High Potency Amine Complex Face Lift has the highest levels of active ingredients present in any Perricone MD product. It contains 700% more Vitamin C (a key cosmeceutical player) than it’s predecessor and will lift, tighten and define. Not only will skin appear noticeably younger over time (give it a month or two)  but this product will also leave you with an immediate radiant glow.

NB: Just one thing to mention. With all products that contain active ingredients – so that’s ones that are fighting acne, pigmentation, scarring or ageing, it is normal for skin to tingle and mildly burn or turn red temporarily. The more you use the products,  the less this will happen as your skin gets used to it. Don’t be alarmed. However, if you are really experiencing discomfort stop using the product immediately.
