HealGel Face - Review

HealGel Face £48*

The bottle of Heal Gel Face

This step-changing complex acts like HealGel Intensive to rescue unhappy skin, but then takes its transformative effect to the next level.  Arnica and Madecassoside are suspended in liposomes with powerful peptides and biodynes to initiate a uniquely soothing and collagen boosting process.  HealGel Face also contains a unique blend of Omega Oils to replenish dehydrated skin and restore elasticity.  To this another vital dimension is added; a powerful three part hyaluronic acid complex provides a plumping and tightening effect. 

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. 

Swatch of Heal Gel Face

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!

  3. It's it's really lovely isn't it x

  4. I got this free with a magazine subscription and I don't rate it at all!
    I didn't see any improvement to my skin and I've been using it for over a month now, It's very pricey for a bottle so I definitely won't purchase it when I run out.

    1. Aw that's a shame, I'm actually getting on really well with this and enjoying using it. X


I read every comment and will reply if you have a question :)
