Laser Treatment Clinic Marine Skin Science Cleanser And Toner
Founded in 2000 at the heart of London’s medical and cosmetic centre, and located at the most prestigious medical address in the world, The Laser Treatment Clinic was one of the first Laser skin clinics to establish itself in London. Their skin experts have sourced the very best hi-tech cutting edge laser systems and advanced high performance Marin Skin Science skincare products which work together to deliver the best results for skin. I’ve been trialling two of their products, the Ultra-Smooth Sea Polish and the Revitalize Marine Body Serum.
The body serum is ultra rich but still very, very light to apply, which covers the skin with moisture without any hint of a sticky residue. It soaks in quickly but the moisturising effect lasts for a while, and you really feel that you’ve given your skin a drink, so to speak. The serum is designed to minimise the appearance of dull, dry skin on both the body and the hands and restores it’s appearance, leaving it feeling silky smooth and toned. It has quite a medical scent, there is no hint of florals or sweetness, which I actually really like, it almost feels like you ‘should’ be using it, rather than it being a beauty product. For the best results, it’s recommended that you exfoliate (healthy, unbroken skin) in the shower before applying, and leave it to soak in for 2 minutes to allow it to dry.
The Sea Polish is probably one of my favourite exfoliators to date. It’s highly concentrated and ultra, ultra fine. If you looked at it in the pot you would never suspect it was an exfoliator! The marine earth skin polish targets blackheads, blocked pores, dull and uneven skin tone, leaving the skin feeling softer and smoother. You really don’t need to put much effort into using this scrub, it does all the work for you, apply a tiny amount to dry skin (it’s best to use after a hot shower so the steam can open your pores a little) and massage lightly. It says for around 5 minutes, depending on the sensitivity of your skin. I don’t have overly sensitive skin but I found 2-3 mins max was enough, anymore than that for me and it would start to feel sore and aggravated. The trick is to dampen your face each time the scrub starts to thicken up, paying particular attention to problem areas, mine being around my nose and my chin. Rinse it well using warm water and a flannel. The box suggests 1-3 times a week, but I will probably be sticking to once a week when my skin is happy, maybe once a fortnight when I go through my lovely breakout moments, as I like to scale everything back and just cover my face with gentle love when it’s like that! (Think oil, oil and more oil!) The 50ml pot will probably last a good few months as you only need such a tiny amount each time.
