Review: Skin Chemists Advanced Brightening Collection

Hi loves, today I have skincare review for you. Skin Chemists was kind enough to send me their Advanced Brightening Micellar Water (250ml), Toner (250ml) and a Lotion (250ml). I do want to mention before we go in to the review I have oily skin type and my skin already is in very good condition. I have been using these products a month now. My thoughts on the products are 100% on my own. 

The products come in similar bottles and the difference is in the label. Goes from darkest blue to the lightest. It would be the order the products are used: Micellar Water, Toner and the last step would be the Lotion. I would also apply essence and a serum and then go in with the lotion. All 3 products contain 250 ml of product, which makes it great value. Their Advanced Brightening range is packed with great ingredients to make the skin brighter and looking the best it can.

The Advanced Brightening Micellar Water is so gentle and it doesn't irritate my delicate eye area. It contains Vitamin B6 and C, which help to brighten the skin. I like to use it in the mornings to cleanse my skin or take off any makeup left behind from the cleansing balm. I wear heavy makeup and the cleansing balm is the easiest way to melt it off. If there is anything left behind I use this Micellar Water to remove it and it does amazing job. Most this type of products really irritate my skin.

Active ingredients:
  • Whitonyl - helps to brighten the skin by controlling the photoinduced pigmentation. It helps to attenuated pigmentation spots.
  • Allantoin - is acting as skin protectant and provides moisture. Also has soothing and anti-irritating properties.
  • Crodarom Water Mint - is a plant extract, which provides stimulant, radical scavenging. Also provides moisturizing effect for cosmetic application
  • Summer Damask Rose Water - helps to maintain skin natural moisture, regulates pH balance, tones and softens the epidermis. Also has skin whitening effect.

I'm very happy with this product. It does a great job removing imperfections and gets the makeup off my skin. I like how gentle the formula is. My eye area loves this product!

The Advanced Brightening Toner is one of my favorite toners at the moment. I love the formula so much and it feels amazing on the skin. Their toner contains pioneering skin brightening formula that helps to make the skin feel smoother, brighter and more even looking. It also helps to balance, hydrate and leaves the skin feeling nourished. It reduce the look of redness and  also balances the pH. 

The formula of the toner is bit thicker and looks like very watery gel. It reminds me the Klairs  toner (review), which I also really like. The Skin Chemists toner is scented, but it hasn't irritated my skin in any way. The scent is not over powdering either. I use it every morning and evening. I use cotton round to apply it and it makes my skin feel hydrated and it's also cooling. I love how it feels on my skin, like the product caresses the skin.

Down below you can see the cap of the Toner and the Micellar Water has exactly the same cap. On the left you can see a swatch of the Toner. You can see how much thicker it is then other toner.

Active Ingredients:
  • Vitamin B5 - helps to hydrate and deeply moisturize the skin within. 
  • Niacinamide - helps to maintain skins elasticity as well as maintaining water permeability barrier of the skin. Also has anti-inflammatory activity, which is essential for anti acne care.
  • Sweet Almond Oil - is rich with fatty acids and contains vitamin A, B1, B2 and B6. It's great ingredient to condition the skin, because of its penetrating, smoothing, softening and moisturizing properties. 
  • Vitamin C - is one of my favorite ingredients in skincare product. It helps to fight against free radicals and helps to reduce skin roughness and inflammation.

I'm so happy with this Toner. It hydrates my skin and brings comfort to it. I can see myself picking it up once this one is over. I just love the formula.

The last item in this range is the Advanced Brightening Lotion, which is great, if you like something light weight. I comes in a same kind of bottle as the other two products, but it has a pump, which I really like. It's formulated with Vitamin B3, Vitamin C and Vitamin B4. It feels light weight and I have been using it in morning and evening. It's very moisturizing and I usually use something thicker in the evenings, but I feel with this cream I don't need to. It's so effective!

Active ingredients:
  • Vitamin C - is a great anti aging ingredient and it provides sunlight protection (still wear SPF, always). It helps against free radicals and reduces skin roughness and inflammation. 
  • Poreaway - helps to reduce the look of pores, fights shininess, blemishes and clogged pores. It helps to keep the skin clear and refined.
  • Niacinamide - helps to maintain the skin's elasticity as wells as maintaining the water permeability barrier of the skin. Also has with anti inflammatory properties, which is essential for anti acne care.

Now you guys know how my skin has been looking so flawless. The Toner and the Lotion are wins for me. I can see myself buying both products when I run out. The Lotion has made my pores look smaller and overall my complexion looks so much brighter and healthier. I haven't got any brake outs not even when I get my period, when I usually do get brake outs. This trio is a win in my eyes.

Have you tried any Skin Chemists products before?
