Skinceuticals Metacell B3 to the Rescue

By  |  0 Comments

I don’t know how many of you actually enjoy winter. I mean snuggling, being cozy and hot chocolate are definitely a thing, but dry skin isn’t. I used to battle with dry skin and it feels so amazing to say “used to”. Metacell Renewal B3 is the new wonder product from Skinceuticals that reduces wrinkles, tightens skin surface elasticity and evens skin tone. It also corrects early symptoms of photo-ageing and reduces the appearance of discolouration and redness. It also hydrates like a MOFO!

Winter in S.A. means dehydrated skin. Especially in JHB. There’s a lot of trans-epidermal water loss going on. South Africans usually also have more sun damage because of our climate. In addition to climate related skin issues, we’re also all ageing. Early signs of ageing start from top layer of skin all the way down. As we age, more freckles and dark spots appear, we might have to deal with redness or blotchiness due to inflammation and weakening of blood vessels, and our skin surface starts to lose its tightness due to lack of collagen production because of weakened fibroblasts. Sounds like fun!

Metacell Renewal B3 is a cocktail of 3 power ingredients. Niacinimide improves the barrier function, addresses the early signs of ageing, decreases inflammation and reduces sun damage and pigmentation, a tightening tri-peptide concentrate stimulates the skins own production of hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which is a powerful humectant with good skin-repairing properties.

It’s lightweight gel-lotion texture, which makes this an all skin-types formula. It has a beautiful, smooth texture, absorbs in a flash and it leaves your skin feeling like SILK. My skin looks so clear and hydrated and beautiful and almost flawless after I use this. I noticed a difference in my skin texture after a week of using this product, and in my pigmentation after a month. I am really loving Skinceuticals. It seems like all their products are a hit.

I love how this product layers and fits into my everyday routine. Some days I use it day and night as my moisturiser, and other times, as a special treatment for when I feel that there’s something not right with my skin, when it’s dry, dull or lackluster. I also find that when I exfoliate with either of my two favourite exfoliators, this product really sinks in and works its magic even better.

The product comes in a frosted glass bottle with a pump. The packaging is fab as the frosted glass provides protection to light sensitive ingredients, and the pump gives the perfect amount of product for your face.  

If you’re 25-40 or just starting to see signs of aging, this is a great choice. If you’re older and/or see more visible sun damage, you would need to use a few other products as well to round out your anti-ageing regimen. Maybe a retinol product? Skinceuticals make a divine one. 

Available in a 50ml bottle for R1799. You can find it online here and here and at your nearest available retail stockist here.
