The Swiss are renowned for being precise time keepers, but they are also masterfully skilled at making time stand still … and even turning back time, thanks to their expertise in the field of skincare science. Skincode AG, a Swiss-based beauty company founded in 1998 by a team of professionals with profound knowledge and experience in the cosmetics industry, reinforces Switzerland`s reputation for state-of-the-art skincare.
The Skincode range includes two results-oriented lines to answer to your needs and to suit your personal preferences. Built on the principle that the skin is a living organ and its genetic “code” must be respected, the collections provide consumers with high-performance, innovative skincare products reflecting the precision, purity and quality that are synonymous with Switzerland.
Switzerland has a long tradition of cellular therapy, people from all over the world have been visiting Swiss clinics to receive such rejuvenating and anti-aging treatment. Skincode Exclusive is a luxury-orientated, revolutionary cellular skincare line designed to address the specific needs of mature skin. The powerful anti-aging treatments speed up the cell renewal process, which slows with age.
The key ingredient: Active Cellular Regenerating Complex Generation 2 (ACR Complex G2) is a truly ground breaking development in the fight against aging skin. Skincode Exclusive products are formulated without Parabens and with an allergen-free fragrance.
Skincode Essentials is an advanced dermocosmetic skincare line formulated to satisfy the daily skincare needs of both women and men. From cleansing to anti-aging, moisturizing to beautifying and even lightening, Skincode Essentials has you covered. The products, dermatologically tested, contain a sophisticated blend of natural extracts and biotech ingredients (some medical grade), while being 100% free of fragrance, preservatives, colors and animal derivatives, making them suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
CM-Glucan, a key ingredient in all of the products, protects the skin’s natural defense mechanism and stimulates Collagen and Elastin production, making them suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
All Skincode products are 100% preservative free, 100% fragrance free or in instances, contains only natural fragrance, 100% animal derivative free and 100% colour free. It’s perfect for my sensitive skin. I was given 4 products to try.
Skincode Essentials Protective Day CreamThis velvety, smooth cream soothes and deeply moisturizes skin as it protects it from the damaging effects of UV radiation and free radicals. It is mildly cloying and a little too heavy for my liking as I put it on. It takes a little longer to be absorbed too – about 10 minutes. There’s no noticeable visible or “feeling” results the first time I used this.
Skincode Essentials Regenerating Night Cream
I can’t tell the difference between this and the day cream really. They both feel and act the same. I kinda feel that they aren’t moisturizing enough, but this may be due to the fact that my skin is used to an overload of daily face mask and Clinique Moisture Surge.
I’ve never been a big fan of creams either. Call it psychological but I think it gives me clogged pores. I like gels, which brings us to…
Skincode Essentials Firming Eye Zone Gel
This one really firmed up my eye area. All the undereye puffiness disappeared! This lightweight gel also got rid of some of the finer… fine lines around the area. My first application was a little worrying though. I’ll talk about it later in this post. For now, this seems to be an item that will have a place in my must haves.
Skincode Essentials Intensive Lifting Serum
Also a gel, this absorbs really quickly and leaves my skin feeling tight. There is some mild instant lifting effect too. I kinda like this one, I’ll continue using this for awhile to see if there are any long term effects.
The one thing that freaked me out a little bit was the fact that all 4 of these products generated a lot of heat to the point of mild discomfort – especially the eye cream. It got to the point where my upper lip was breaking out in sweat. There was no redness or itching so I continued using this for 3 days and the warmness gradually got less and less.
