This appealed to me greatly as I think it's not only important to use natural skin care, but to also combine it with thorough research and science to back it up.
I have been using the ESK normal skin anti-aging kit every day for the past few months and I’m very confidant in saying that their skin care is one of the very best I have used.
The results on my skin are evidence enough. I have received compliments on my skin and people have asked me how I’m turning back the clock. This is the only change I have made, so it really is called evidence based skin care for a reason.
I particularly noticed a major improvement in my under eye area, the dark circles and puffiness disappeared.
I developed a smoother and overall even and vibrant complexion. My cheeks and the lines around my mouth also felt more plumped up and tightened.

I originally did a review for the ESK Ultimate A moisturiser and was so was impressed with the effects of it's hero ingredient, retinal, a Vitamin A derivative, that I was more than happy to test out one of their full kits.
When ESK suggested the following kit for me after filling out their online questionnaire, I couldn't wait to see what the results would be on my skin. I loved the convenience of this as it’s always hard to know which products are best for my skin, it takes lot of experimenting and spending alot of money on products which might not be the best for my type of skin and they end up sitting on the bathroom shelves for years.
There are 5 bottles in a kit which come in a high quality white zipped bag which you’ll be able to re-use as a make-up bag :)
A beautiful fresh cleanser containing hydroxy acids which removes dead skin and promotes new skin cell growth. Also contains cucumber, aloe, lavender and rose. I love the subtle clean scent of the flowers and herbs. I struggle finding a good cleanser, some are just too harsh or don’t do enough or have an over powering scent. This is perfect for my skin and I can’t imagine not using it!
It has a light foaming action and is soap free. It leaves my skin feeling very fresh and smooth.
Vitamin C is one of the major game changers when it comes to skin vibrancy and anti-aging. But you also need to use the right type of Vitamin C. The vitamin C contained in this serum is L-ascorbic Acid, which is the most pure form of Vitamin C. It's an anti-oxidant which helps to repair damaged and aged skin and helps to protect skin from sun damage.
This serum also contains vitamin E in it's most potent form (tocopherol). This vitamin is also a powerful antioxidant which fights off free radicals and helps to strengthen, moisturise and heal skin.
I like to think of this as a wonderful protection and healing serum for my skin.
This zinc oxide moisturiser is perfect for my skin. It's light enough to wear under make-up every day and works fantastic as a primer. It has been very effective in protecting my skin from the harsh Australian sun. As I am a bit of a sun lover, I do like to get my vitamin D, but I don't want wrinkles! This provides against UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays. It's sps 15 + and provides against the harshest sun of the day.
Also contains the calming jojoba seed oil, lavender oil and rose oil.
An Alpha Hydroxy Acid exfoliating serum for use at night. This potent serum renews the skin by promoting skin cell turnover. The result is a more balanced and smoother skin tone. It removes dead skin, revealing a brighter layer of skin. Helps increase collagen production leaving skin feeling more fresh and plump.
Serums deposit highly concentrated forms of active nutrients which absorb into the deeper layers of skin.
This keeps skin hydrated without feeling oily and really seems to be able to smooth out wrinkles.
Contaning witch hazel, lavender oil, rose damascene, backhousia citriorda oil and hydroxy acids.
My favourite night cream of all time, the two powerhouse ingredients in this turn this into a super wrinkle smoother.
The amazing night cream contains vitamin A (Retinal) and B3 (Niacinamide). These two ingredients would have to be two of the most effective anti ageing ingredients. I've been reading a lot about Niacinamide lately and this is the ingredient you want to be using on your skin. There has been a lot of research into this and it I can say myself that it does help to improve elasticity of skin, it helps with collagen and this in return helps to smooth out fine lines, even helping my under eye area look less puffy.
The retinal contained in this cream is the most superior form of Retinol you can use, being the closest to prescription retinoic acid, but natural and without the extreme harsh side effects from chemical based retinal.
I can highly recommend ESK products with confidence, their products are high quality, effective and safe for all skin types. They do result in a smoother, younger looking complexion, even helping 'cheek wrinkles', which seem to be a hard to thing to eliminate unless people turn to fillers or botox, which is something you really want to avoid.
Kits are available from ESK for all skin types including acne prone, normal, mature, sensitive, pigmented and expected mums.
