Skinceuticals Retexturing Activator and $100 Facial Co. Giveaway

I was recently given the chance to trial the SkinCeuticals Retexturing Activator by Australian beauty online retailer FacialCo.com.au . SkinCeuticals has a good reputation as a skin care company that is backed up by science, and I had heard great things about their famous C E Ferulic serum- so I was looking forward to trying this product.

The Skinceuticals Retexturing Activator is basically a gentle exfoliating and hydrating serum to be used after cleansing and before any other moisturising product. It uses the chemical exfoliant hydroxyethyl urea, which is supposed to be both exfoliating and hydrating (I’m not familiar with the exfoliating properties of this compound I’m just going off information given by SkinCeuticals). Together with the humectant hyaluronate, it draws moisture to the skin – useful when ‘sealed in’ with an occlusive like a cream moisturiser or skin treatment oil.

After using this post cleanse several times a week for a month, I’ve noticed that it does seem to hydrate when used underneath my regular moisturiser- and leaves my skin a little smoother (likely due to the exfoliating properties of the urea)- but the effect is not dramatic. I haven’t noticed any adverse reactions with my sensitive skin, so this might be a good option for sensitive skin types that want to dip a toe into chemical exfoliating treatments without going into AHA/BHAs

Skinceuticals says…

Using patent-pending technology, this unique treatment contains a 25% concentration of a paradoxal compound discovered to be highly effective at promoting cell differentiation while optimizing the skin’s amino acid supply to reinforce the barrier, resulting in the most efficient epidermal renewal. Potent without harsh side effects, Retexturing Activator is formulated in an efficient, oil-free delivery system suitable for all skin types.
