[unpaid/sample] I like luxury skin care to look and behave as such – skin care pricing is so arbitrary generally that what something costs seems to have little relevance to how well it does what it’s supposed to. So, anything over the £50 mark I tend to approach with caution. Dr David Jack’s packaging approach is a little bit Chanel and a little bit Jo Malone London – if the two had a love-child, this would be it.
If you don’t know Dr Jack, he trained in medicine, anatomy and embryology, before specialising in plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine. Like many doctorpreneurs, he worked in the NHS before establishing his own clinic. It seems quite gutsy to me to kick off with a small edit of products that cost more – if you follow the regime – than a vial of Botox… in fact, it wouldn’t take so long before you’d spent the equivalent of a face lift. But, this is for a core of consumers who view looking after their faces as a 360 experience – look, texture and health from whatever treatments are required for the result.
The Blue Peel is divine in texture – it’s silken on the skin, light as a feather and immediately soothing. It feels unlike other peels – although it contains both Azelaic Acid and Glycolic – in that there’s no skin tingle or pin prick feeling .. in fact, the opposite. Indicated for dry skin that’s prone to redness and sensitivity, it’s both cooling and hydrating (thank you hyaluronic) and gives a mild exfoliation that honestly feels like the treat it’s supposed to be. There’s a bit of line blur between peels and enzymatic exfoliators – I’d say this falls more into the latter … I think of a ‘peel’ as punchy and an exfoliation as a more gentle exercise. So, it’s really down to what your budget can take – personally, on the basis of this experience, I’d be tempted to try more from the range. It’s £139 (Black Friday offer of £104) HERE and should be used once a week or so.
