If you want to know how we approach skincare and chose the products on our site read on

You should always start with skincare…

  • Before you even consider tweakments make sure to get your skincare right
  • Even if you would never consider tweakments get your skincare right
  • And then use it like medicine – consistently and over a period of months

And not just any old skincare…

The products on this site are what we term Results-Led Skincare. What do we mean by this?

  • Products that good practitioners (like those on this site) would recommend
  • Some target specific skin complaints like acne or rosacea and some just work well for everyone
  • They work on all three layers of the skin not just the top layer
  • They are proven to work using proper scientific testing  
  • They do this thanks to more effective delivery systems and a much better level of active ingredients

How did we choose which results-led products in our shop?

Alice has decades of experience of writing articles (and a best-selling book) about skincare, Becki achieved a distinction in the best qualification you can get about skincare and Shenaz has decades of hands-on practical experience of performing skincare consultations. They put their heads together and chose their favourite products.

We know many of the country’s leading dermatologists and doctors and we talk to them regularly to understand what are their favourite products and why.

And what about value for money?

We know results-led skincare products are expensive but our starting point is to let you know what works best if you can afford it.

That said we take into account both efficacy and value. So in each skincare category, we select a cheaper and a more expensive option.

If you are on a budget we suggest you combine an active product such as a serum with some High Street cleansers, moisturisers and sun creams.

So how do you choose what is right for you?

There are a couple of ways you can do this:

  • Book a one-on-one consultation with our outstanding skincare therapist Shenaz Gain who has more than 30 years of experience and understands results-led skincare backwards.
  • Take our quiz to discover the products that will give you the best results.
  • Do your own research by reading our skincare pages to understand what kinds of results-led skincare you really need and what are just nice-to-haves.
