Skintelligence skincare products review- hydraderm deep cleansing emulsion and facial firming masque



Skintelligence is a US company that produces skincare products that are based on plant extracts. Now that I'm expecting our second child, the hormonal imbalance and chronic sleep deprivation has wreaked havoc causing a massive breakout. I'm hoping skintelligence will calm my irritated skin down. The two products that I'm going to share are suitable for expecting mothers and I'm going to analyse the ingredients in detail.

Skintelligence hydraderm deep cleansing emulsion

This emulsion is gentle on the skin but cleanses the skin effectively from impurities and makeup without clogging the pores. I love the hint of floral scent which also helps to soothe my nausea. The smell of lavender is not too overpowering either. It's like a daily cleansing milk that doesn't rip moisture from the skin.

The important ingredients are:

Aloe Vera

It helps to keep the skin moisturized, rejuvenates the skin and makes it smooth and firm.

Allantoin

This has anti-irritant properties, which soothe the sensitive and inflamed skin.

Chamomile Extract

This is a great anti-oxidant which brings anti ageing properties, as well as calming the skin.

Lavender Extract

Lavender has soothing benefits for the skin. These benefits help cleanse and protect the skin, while also helping to support normal skin tone and balance.

Geranium Extract
In addition to its cleansing action, geranium helps to maintain the balance between dry and oily skin, also helps to soothe skin, leaving your skin feeling invigorated.

If you squeeze your eyes, parabens are the last two ingredients that came on the list! Didn't I warn you all about paraben? So why am I using and reviewing a product with paraben?

Actually paraben is widely used in cosmetics and skincare products. There are worries about it causing cancer but there's no definite proof. Some maybe allergic to paraben so those with ezcema should be cautious about this. Having said that, Mr husband has eczema but can use Simple face wash that has paraben in it. Find out now about paraben here (in Mandarin though).

Skintelligence facial firming masque

This is a special mask and can be used once or twice per week. 12 to 15 minutes each time. A very small price and little time to pay to get clean and youthful skin. After cleansing and a warm bath to open up the pores, I massaged the masque in circular motions evenly across the face. After 5 minutes or so, the masque dried up and the whole face felt tighten.

Remember not to talk or smile during this time. It rinsed off easily with water. Unlike other masque which needs to be peeled off (and it's messy because it doesn't come off in a piece). My face instantly felt firmer and soother after a single use. It even removed my blackheads.

Most of the ingredients are similar to the cleansing emulsion.

Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract

Rich in enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and natural plant compounds, aloe vera keeps the skin moisturized, soothes and rejuvenates the skin.

Geranium Extract

Geranium cleanses and helps to maintain the balance between dry and oily skin. Geranium extract also helps to soothe irritated skin leaving your skin feeling invigorated.

Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) Oil

Lavender extracts are good sources of antioxidant phenolic acids and flavonoids that soothes the skin. These maintain normal skin tone and balance.

Humulus lupulus (Hops) Extract

Hops extracts contain a number of flavonoid antioxidant compounds including xanthohumol, isoxanthohumol, quercetin, and rutin. These support the skin’s extracellular matrix, thus maintaining the skin’s natural firmness and elasticity.

Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) Extract

Acts as a soothing, skin-conditioning agent. It also helps to maintain the skin’s normal oil balance.

Hamamelis virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract

Witch hazel is a natural cleansing agent that helps to sanitize and invigorate your skin. Additionally, witch hazel can help support the skin’s natural barrier function to keep the skin hydrated.

Isoxanthohumol is a derivative of xanthohumol in the flavonoids class. It is isolated from the the roots of Sophora flavescens Ait. Isoxanthohumol exhibits antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiangiogenic properties. Isoxanthohumol induces apoptosis in mature adipocytes, and inhibits differentiation of preadipocytes.
