The Luxe Skincare Range That’s Worth The Money
Created in partnership with 111 Skin
The 111SKIN Hype…
111SKIN was founded by plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr Yannis Alexandrides MD FACS and CEO Eva Alexandridis. They launched with a serum ten years ago that helped accelerate the healing of skin post-surgery. The impressive results put a spotlight on the brand and they went on to launch serums, creams and masks. With a number of ranges, the brand aims to cater to different needs – be it ageing, dullness, scarring or blemishes. Its most powerful range is the Intensive Collection. A worthy investment, everything in the line delivers results and has earnt a cult following that includes the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Cate Blanchett and Victoria Beckham.
The Black Diamond Background...
The Intensive Collection is 111SKIN’s most luxurious and advanced offering. Using fine diamond particles to exfoliate and brighten, the products benefit from active ingredients – including liquorice extract and skin-strengthening peptides – which help to minimise signs of ageing such as fine lines, pigmentation and uneven tone. Every product in the range is a worthy investment, especially if you’re serious about overhauling your complexion and investing in a solid routine. You only need a little of each product, so you’ll find yourself eking them out for months.
The Two New Additions...
#1: Celestial Black Diamond Body Cream
This indulgent body cream includes the brand’s famed NAC Y²™ antioxidant complex. This is the brand’s patented skincare formula which works on all areas of the skin to soothe and heal – it has a host of anti-ageing benefits, too. You’ll also find hydrating hyaluronic acid, calming centella asiatica and brightening liquorice extract – all of which work hard to firm, brighten, plump and improve the appearance of pigmentation and correct uneven skin tone. Not only does it tick all the right boxes for a body cream, it has a texture that’s satisfyingly buttery and fragrance free. Despite its rich texture, it is never sticky or tacky, and it applies easily, immediately hydrating, giving instant relief to areas of dryness. Despite its potency and ability to quickly transform skin, the formula is gentle and never aggravating, so even those prone to sensitivities can use it with ease.
#2: Celestial Black Diamond Brightening Essence
Everyone needs a good essence in their routine. A lightweight, nourishing liquid, it delivers the first layer of moisture that makes everything else you apply afterwards work harder. We love this new one from 111SKIN. Created with pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles in mind, it penetrates the layers of your skin for a fresher-looking appearance. The addition of peptides helps to stimulate collagen every time you use it, so your complexion looks bouncier and plumper as a result. Tranexamic acid and hematite extract are included specifically to brighten, so dark patches and redness are gradually reduced. Apply it with your hands, patting it in gently to freshly cleansed skin.
