I use to take exfoliating for granted and apply any old scrub on my skin and hope for the best. Recently I’ve been focusing on the quality of ingredients in exfoliators and what other benefits you can receive from a scrub other than smooth, softer skin.
Zelens as a whole isn’t a brand who throws any old ingredient into the cauldron and hopes for the best. Zelens is a great example of why active ingredients are important to incorporate into your daily skin care routine, but finding the correct balance and dosage of each and every ingredient is crucial for a truly effective product.
We know micro beads are soon to becoming extinct (well, we can only wish) and over the past year or two brands have started to use beneficial alternatives like crushed up apricots, walnut shells and silica to exfoliate our delicate face and body (hooray for plastic free seas!).
If you look forward to your weekly scrub then be prepared to get excited over this enzymatic, polishing facial exfoliator from the one and only Zelens by Dr Marco Lens.
Unlike other exfoliants on the market that feel suspiciously harsh and abrasive the Zelens Bi-Active Exfoliator works intensively and thoroughly without the feeling of ripping your skin to shreds.
The creamy but light texture allows you to use very little product but enough product to spread over the entire face and fully enjoy a “realistic” exfoliating experience.
The first key ingredient to focus on is Papain. Extracted from a Papaya, Papain breaks down dead skin cells from the outermost layer of the epidermis thus preventing future skin problems. Zelens Advanced Hydrating Complex provides a blend sea minerals, amino acids and Natural Moisturising Factors creating a breathable film helping to retain hydration and a healthy skin barrier.
Indulging in festive treats and alcoholic drinks over the festive period might have been a good idea at the time but your skin won’t thank you for it.
Zelens Transformer Instant Renewal Mask is something worth splurging on. The scent, feel and look all feels very mesmerizing, luxurious and precious (Like finding hidden treasure at the bottom of the deep blue sea) and also, how can I not forget its gorgeous pearlescent-like balm texture!
The Zelens Transformer Instant Mask is cram-packed full of active ingredients that will leave even the most skin care queen (or king!) gob-smacked. Forget about the other wonder masks in the cupboard, this baby lifts, firms, restores and comforts in one.
Starting with hydrolyzed Pearl Powder that contains a whopping 16 amino-acids and skin loving proteins working to hydrate the driest of skins. Boosting skin’s moisture is Hyaluronic Acid, seaweed complex nourishes. Sesame Proteins are used for its long-lasting moisture and ability to reinforce and strengthen damaged skin
For exfoliation, Lactoblonic Acid from milk sugar is used to increase cell turnover and skin renewal. This polyhydroxy acid also acts as a powerful moisturiser. The duo enzymatic action of protease and subtilisin eats away dead skin cells allowing skin to fully benefit from the active ingredients that lies inside the mask.
