Complexion Balancing Skincare from Zelens

Particularly as we’re getting into summer with the bronzing and fake tanners coming out, all preparing to get gloriously golden glowing skin for the season; it’s time to do some skin prep.

If you apply fake tanners onto uneven skin cells, it will fall away in patches. Then if you go on holiday wanting to get a beautifully even and long lasting tan, it won’t stick around if there’s a surface of dead, uneven skin cells. So preparing the skin is key!

These two products from Zelens are designed to remove surface dead skin cells whilst encouraging healthy and even skin cell production. If the surface of your skin is smooth, healthy and hydrated, light reflects more evenly to give you radiance. They’re also great for anyone suffering with blemishes and enlarged pores.

Zelens PHA+ Bio-Peel Resurfacing Facial Pads

These pads use a combination of alpha, beta and poly hydroxy acids that break down the bonds of dead skin cells, sloughing them off without damaging the skin underneath. After use and the resulting removal of dead skin cells, any product you apply afterwards will sink deeper into the skin becoming more effective!

I always think pads like these are best used at night so you can then apply your richer and more active night time ingredients onto the skin. Sweep over the entire face once (the more you go over, the more powerful they become) and avoid the eye area. Immediately follow with your serum/moisturiser etc.

PHA+ Bio Peel Resurfacing Facial Pads. Zelens Online. £65

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Alcohol Denat., Propylene Glycol, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Glycerin, Sodium Lactate, Salicylic Acid, Lactobionic Acid, Citric Acid, Lactic Acid, Parfum (Fragrance), Disodium EDTA, Linalool.

Zelens Z Luminous Brightening Serum

This is kind of my all in one and if you’re not really sure what serum should be using, this covers all your bases. It brightens by actively removing dead skin cells whilst on the skin; hydrates deep into the skins surface layers all whilst balancing skin tone.

The Z Luminous Serum uses some of the same ingredients in the pads with the addition of hydrators but in a different texture and formulation to work throughout the day and night. It has a very light, oil-free consistency that sits well under any moisturiser!

Active ingredients include Niacinamide, Resorcinol and Zinc-Glycene complex which is proven to help banish dark marks and hyperpigmenation. There’s also a host of antioxidants, vitamins and despite a little fragrance is paraben and mineral oil free.

After 28 days of use of Z Luminous Brightening Serum a significant reduction in the size of the treated dark spots was observed (decrease in the mean area of an overage of 7.8%. After 28 days of use of Z Luminous Brightening Serum had a significant brightening effect on the skin (improvement of an average 9.4% was observed.

For those of us who have not won the lottery nor are silly enough to spend way over £100 on a serum what other would you recommend

    I don’t think you should discount a product because it’s expensive, equally as much as you shouldn’t discount a product because it’s inexpensive. Depends what you’re looking for? What skin concerns do you have Lee?

    Hi Lee,

    Please accept my apologies. I’ve switched to the Disqus commenting system and it spams all the comments in my inbox so I don’t always see them. I’m working on getting it fixed.

    So pleased you’ve had chance to try the face wash and so glad you love it – it’s truly gorgeous isn’t it?

    I don’t do much on anti-ageing to be fair, so will have a look around for some really good choices and get a post going in the near future.

    Thanks again!!

    T :)
