As former salon owners, we found ourselves facing challenges that many salons do – stocking big-name brands with extensive and over-complicated ranges that weren’t compatible with our clients’ busy lifestyles. We were also startled at how so many people were treating their skin issues by using several harsh products at once (and paying a pretty penny in the process). When in fact, there is a much more kind and gentle – not to mention simple – alternative.
Bringing together the finest experts in the skincare industry – from cosmeceutical chemists, to formulators and manufacturers – we realised people could achieve happy, healthy skin without having to spend a fortune or risk irritation. And that fewer, multi-tasking products and better education around skincare were all that was needed. After all, why should great skincare be for a privileged few?
SKINICIAN aims to cut through the ‘noise’ of the skincare world – a brand that skips the jargon and 15-step routines and instead offers the products you actually need. Our range of targeted, active-rich formulas are tailored to treat several skin concerns at once, at an accessible price point. (Because great skincare should be available to all.) As well as having products that are multi-tasking, efficient and cost-effective, we also want to encourage more conscious ways of consuming.
What Affordable Skincare Means To Us
With our carefully curated product range and comprehensive formulas, we want to help people consume less. To only buy a few products that you can regularly use, and can easily fit into a time-strapped routine. We hope to reduce wastage, so that less products get bought and quickly discarded. Plus, not everyone has the time or budget to experiment mixing and matching single-ingredient products and countless lotions and potions. That’s why SKINICIAN was created – to offer easily accessible, effective skincare that can be relied upon time and time again. We have also created our products in larger sizes than many of our competitors have, so not only do you need to use less of our products, they last longer too.
Our formulas are brimming with the most targeted, clinically proven actives to treat a number of different concerns, from acne and rosacea, to fine lines and pigmentation. While all being dermatologically tested for sensitive skin. We don’t have one single ‘hero’ ingredient or complex that we constantly shout about, as all of our key ingredients and complexes are equally effective. As we help customers switch to a more targeted skincare routine, they will also discover a new world of ingredients that will inspire them to learn more about how to take the best possible care of their skin. From the more familiar retinol and hyaluronic acid, through to unique complexes such as Dermapep™ (Peptide) and Eye Revite™, our customers can find the best ingredients and formulas that are suited to your skin type and concerns. We are also pioneers of ‘green chemistry’, prioritising naturally derived ingredients which are harvested from nature and harnessed in the lab, to deliver the most targeted results.
What Kind Of Mature Skincare Products Should You Add To Your Routine?
At SKINICIAN, we have worked hard to ensure all of our formulations never hit the market until they are perfect. You can guarantee every product we sell has undergone rigorous testing and reformulation based on real people’s feedback. There are so many products targeted at mature skin so at SKINICIAN we knew we had to create some hero products of our own to help tackle the skin concerns that mature skin’s come up against. Check out two of our favourite affordable, mature skin products must haves below.
Overnight Retinol Powerbalm
Our Overnight Retinol Powerbalm comes in two strengths. If you are new to using retinol in your routine we recommend starting at Level 1 and introducing to skin slowly to build up a tolerance. For those who have used retinol before or who have finished Level 1, we recommend moving on to Level 2.
Both products are packed with retinol and peptides such as Derma Pep to stimulate cell production, speed up collagen production and reduce the signs of ageing providing wrinkle reduction in just 28 days.
Retinol products tend to be expensive to buy but at SKINICIAN you will find our Retinol Powerbalm is affordable compared to competitors and the level of pure retinol used in our products is a higher percentage than many more expensive products on the market.
Peptide Eye Complex
One of the signs of mature skin that customers tend to reach out to us about most, are fine lines and wrinkles round the eyes and what products we recommend. We developed our Peptide Eye Complex with clinically proven ingredients to:
-Increase moisture by 23%
- Increase firmness by 25%
- Decreased wrinkles by 12%
- Decrease discolouration & even out skin tone by 19%
The Peptide Eye Complex works to tackle fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area with its Hyaluronic Spheres plumping and hydrating the area leaving it looking smoother. SPF30 has also been included in the formulation to protect the delicate area from any further damage whilst Vitamin C works to tackle dark circles leaving the area looking brighter.
Mature Skincare Products For Every Budget
At SKINICIAN we have created affordable skin care products for every age but the products that tend to cost the earth with our competitors are products for mature skin. We know that skin care shouldn’t cost the earth so we have created multifunctional, affordable products that are perfect for mature skin. Take a look at a few products for mature skin we recommend:
Affordable Skincare Under £50
Our favourite cleanser for mature skin is the Advanced Pro-Radiance Enzyme Cleanser. This multi-functional foaming cleanser not only cleanses the skin but is also packed full of AHA’s to gently exfoliate the skin leaving it clean, smooth and bright. Our two in one product is the perfect second cleanse and can be used daily or if you have more sensitive skin, use a couple of times a week to help exfoliate and brighten skin.
Vitamin C is the perfect ingredient for mature skin and our Elixir is packed full of not only Vitamin C to treat and protect skin, but it also contains Vitamin E and Avocado oil to nourish and hydrate dry, tired skin giving it a hydration boost whilst helping minimise pigmentation. A few drops of this product is all you need to use, so whilst the bottle may look small, the mighty ingredients inside pack a punch.
As mentioned above our Peptide Eye Complex is one of our hero products for mature skin. Packed full of amazing ingredients for mature skin such as Hyaluronic Spheres, Vitamin C and SPF 30 this eye cream protects and perfects the eye area.
Affordable Skincare £50-£100
Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 1 & 2 are the SKINICIAN mature skin hero products. Targeting fine lines and wrinkles, reducing pigmentation and resurfacing the skin so you awaken with a brighter, smoother and glowing complexion. All of this in one product instead of using three to get the same results, we always keep multifunctional, affordable skin care at the heart of everything we create.
Our hidden gem of a product, Advanced Firming Serum is a cult favourite product. Once you have tried it, you won’t be without it in your skin care wardrobe. Packed full of skin firming peptides, vegetable collagen to strengthen the skin whilst deeply hydrating and our Trade Marked Advanced Lifting Complex to:
Improve skin tone and skin texture
Decrease appearance of wrinkle depth, with results visible in 15 minutes
Increase skin firmness by approx 20% and tightening by approximately 44%
This targeted skin Firming Serum for fine lines and wrinkles works to tackle issues such as a loss of firmness, together with reducing the appearance of fine lines, to leave the complexion plumped and renewed. It contains two advanced complexes that have been proven to increase skin firmness and smooth wrinkles, delivering visible results in just one hour.
