This week's beauty product which the entire Shemazing crew is LUSTING over is positively mind-blowing. Why? The Skin Nerd, that's why.
We all know and adore Jennifer Rock; CEO and founder of the iconic skincare company, award-winning dermal facialist, skin trainer and best-selling author.
Their legendary Nerd Network online skin consultations have changed the lives of over 10,000 clients, leading Jennifer and the team to have a deep understanding of what people need from skincare.
Seeing as Jennifer Rock knows literally EVERYTHING in the whole entire world about skin, she's the perfect person to create her very own skincare product range; Skingredients®.
Now, we're always wary about believing the hype of new products on the market, but we've tried and tested the Skin Nerd's collection and it's phenomenal. Undoubtedly, it's set to become a cult brand.
Skingredients® is your skin's balanced diet, a range of goodies made up of the exact key ingredients that your skin needs: Nothing more, nothing less.
The highly-anticipated range has been created for people of all ages and skin types, and is customisable to your individual needs.
Skingredients® targets skin concerns instead of types, seeing as your skin is an ever-changing organ requiring alternating result-driven ingredients all the time.
The capsule collection features seven products: The Core 4 plus three mix-and-match products to tailor your Skingredients® recipe.
The range is totally fragrance-free, according to Jennifer's mantra that smells don't change cells.
The Core 4
These four products are your must-have ingredients which are integral to skin health, basically everyone needs them throughout their life as the basics.
1. PreProbiotic Cleanser, €25 (100ml)
The number one Skingredients® product is the biome-balancing, hydrating first step of the recipe.
PreProbiotic Cleanse is a nourishing cleanser with super-mild exfoliant polyhydroxy acid. PrePro is set to arrive in stock-lists near the end of June, so get yourself on the waiting list STAT.
It's 100 percent worth the wait. Good bacteria isn't just for your gut; the daily cleanser with a prebiotic-probiotic complex and PHA is designed to restore the skin's flora and keep your skin soft, plump and hydrated.
The featherweight lotion has enough muscle to remove eye makeup as well as everything else the day has put your face through.
2. Skin Veg, €42.00 (30ml)
Skin Veg brings all the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant goodness of vegetables to your face, without you having to eat kale or superfood salad.
If your skin is an organ, the ingredients you put on it is essentially food for your face. It's important to know every ingredient and why it's necessary to be within the product.
Skin Veg is a hyaluronic acid and is part of your skin's 10-a-day, highlighter, no-fuss hydration prep for maximum results.
The pre-serum and penetrant enhancer works to prepare your skin to absorb the active ingredients in your other products, and packs goodness into your skin.
Featuring extracts from tomato, broccoli, cucumber, liquorice root, aloe vera, beta-glucan, beta carotene and a clinically-proven pro collagen peptide to brighten and exfoliate your skin, you don't want to miss this.
3. Skin Protein, €42.00 (30ml)
This flawless Vitamin A and C Serum brings the nutrients needed for your skin's proteins.
Formulated to protect and maintain heathy skin, this product is an all-rounder that revamps, revitalises and restores for smoother, tighter, firmer and hydrated skin.
Packed with vitamins, a clinically proven pro-collagen peptide, essential fatty acid rich sunflower seed oil and super potent antioxidants, your skin will be protected from environmental damage.
Skin Protein is ideal for mixing with other serums, and the daily anti-ageing normalising product is suitable for everyone except pregnant people. It's basically results-driven strength-training for your skin.
4. Skin Shield, €42.00 (100ml)
Every single person on earth needs Broad Spectrum Light Protection, that's a fact. New research has discovered that blue light from screens can damage our skin, as well as rays from the sun.
Your skin may protect your organs, but what actually protects your skin?
The Skin Shield is a broad spectrum physical SPF 50 (PA+++) perfect for protecting your skin against UVA and UVB rays, infrared and HEV light, the light emitted from computers and screens.
Even better: it's water-resistant and oil-free. The moisturising, mineral SPF base gives daily coverage with niacinamide to defend damage. It'll give you a dewy but not shiny finish, and we're sold.
Mix + Match Products
Target skin concerns only specific to you whenever you need to, with these mix-and-match treats. Add them to your Core 4 routine when your skin needs some TLC.
A-HA Cleanse, €25.00 (100ml)
A-HA is named for that Eureka moment when all your skincare hopes and dreams come true to create a dewy, bright and hydrated face.
The exfoliating cleanser and resurfacing micro-mask contains lactic acid and PHA (polyhydroxy acid) for nightly-use.
The cleanse gently exfoliates, cleans and brightens your skin, working to boost your natural moisturising factor for extra-skin hydration too.
Perfect for those with normal, dehydrated or dry skin and pigmentation, or an uneven tone. Lactic acid is renowned for creating a brightened skin tone, sure Cleopatra bathed in it daily and look how fierce she looked.
Sally Cleanse, €25 (100ml)
Blackheads? Bye b*tch.
This cleanser, spot-zapper and micro-mask contains the most salicylic acid legally allowed in an EU product (two percent).
The Sally Cleanse works to dissolve debris within the pore to stop spots at the source while simultaneously reducing oil production. It's essentially Skincare Jesus,
If you're too oily to feel comfortable, suffering from blackheads or have under-the-skin bumps or keratosis pilaris, Sally is your main woman.
For spot-prone skin, use as a pore-clearing deep cleanse once every second night along with the PreProbiotic Cleanse.
Skin Good Fats, €42.00 (30ml)
Skin Good Fats isn't just a great moisturiser; it acts as ceramide barrier balm, feeding your skin's barrier with what it recognises.
The barrier balm provides your skin with a skin-native ceramide, essential fatty acids and a patented anti-irritation ingredient to replenish the good fats your skin already uses.
By doing this, your skin is happy, plump and hydrated. Make it your night cream and moisturiser if your skin is dry, itchy, irritated or annoyed.
The Skin Nerd has their sights set on global exportation of Skingredients® over the next 18 months, and they're ready to takeover the world of skincare.
The entire range is also cruelty-free, fragrance-free and free from animal-derived ingredients. A percentage of the products will be donated to an alternate charity each year.
Two years in the making, the Skingredients® range was aimed to simplify skincare for the masses while remaining affordable. Jennifer explained her goals when she dreamed up the glorious goodies;
“Results-driven skincare can be so expensive and unattainable. I wanted to make it simpler. My belief is that you need to mirror what you’re putting into your body with what you’re putting onto your skin."
It's all about empowerment and confidence. Do yourself a huge favour and try the range. Trust us, you'll never look back.
Skingredients® is available online, in pharmacies, department stores and selected salons nationwide.
