As always I will start with the packaging. When I first saw the box I wasn't sure what to make of it. For a high-end priced skincare product, I didn't think the box looked very impressive. The box has gone for a very simple, almost medical look. It reminds me of the instructions that come on prescription drugs. When I opened the box I found that this theme continued onto the bottle. On the bottle however, it looks interesting and smart because the bottle is really high quality.
Although called a gel, the product is actually like a serum or a light cream. If you have tried the Vichy serum, I would say the texture is very similar and they looked the same on my hand, with a slight sheen running through the product.
One thing I am not sure of is where this product is supposed to come in your skincare routine. It isn't really a moisturiser so I have been using it as a serum. I cleanse and tone, apply the HealGel and then wait until I am going to bed to apply my moisturiser.
The HealGel is really lovely to apply and feels like a treat for your skin! I use two pumps of the product, dab it on my face then massage it into my skin. The product absorbs well, hydrates the skin and leaves a luxurious feeling. The gel is lovely to apply under makeup as it creates a nice base and doesn't leave an oily finish.
After 3 days of using this twice daily, I really began to see the effects on my skin. My skin looks healthy, hydrated and even. I don't have many blemishes but I do have a small amount of redness and it was here I noticed the difference the most. My skintone seemed to be very evened out.
This product comes with a fairly hefty price tag but contains 50ml and I'm only using a very small amount daily. I may try to cut down to one pump instead of two so as to make it go further. From the website I see that an eye version is also available and I would be really interested to try this!
