Vice Reversa Plumping Patches

Smart ageing or just hype? Lisa Armstrong tries DIY microneedling patches

  • plumping-patch_m

    I don’t have problems with blood (it’s pus that used to make me faint), but a beauty treatment that involves gliding a little implement studded with 3mm needles backwards and forwards across your face to create hundreds of bleeding pinpricks doesn’t strike me as the best use of anyone’s me-time.

    Even so, Dermarollers (which you can buy anywhere, including Amazon and probably by the checkout in Tesco before too long) and microneedling (which you need to get done in a salon, although that, too, will probably be an option in Boots soon) are quite the thing. Read More…

Bright Idea: the Light Salon Boost at Home LED mask

The Daily Telegraph

Let there be lights. Your skin will thank you – By Lisa Armstrong

  • The Light Salon LED Mask

    A few months ago, I tried out a light mask because I thought, one day, these will be the coming thing.

    That day is here. They’re launching on to the market in their droves. If you haven’t seen one in action yet, you’re in for comedy gold. They’re quite large, generally made fromsome kind of plastic or fibreglass – more Darth Vadar than face pack. And the light show… some have green, yellow, blue and white emissions, which all have separate properties. Blue is antimicrobial and good for breakouts and acne. Green, yellow and white are soothing.

    But the biggie is infrared, the benefits of which (mood enhancer, muscle soother, collagen production booster, healer and all-round ally) have been recognised for the best part of a century.

    The Light Salon’s Boost mask is the most comfortable I’ve come across. Made from flexible silicon, it’s light and easy to pack and even easier to wear. It stays in place with a strap and bathes your face and neck in infrared and near-infrared rays while you whip up a smoothie or read a book. Frankie Graddon, of this parish, swears she cooked up a curry while test-driving hers. I’ve been listening to Radio 4’s book of the week – Machines Like Me, Ian McEwan’s latest novel about a robot that gets too human-like for comfort – in mine, which feels highly outfit appropriate.

Vice Reversa: Micro-needling Pads

Micro-needling pads: the new anti-aging beauty hack that could save you hundreds of pounds

 

  • Have you heard about micro needling? It’s the buzziest facial on the anti-aging scene, which customers can shell out upwards of £200 at clinics for. But a new beauty brand promises to do exactly the same thing for you at home…and for a fraction of the price. Vice Reversa’s micro needling Plumping Patches, promise younger skin after just a few uses – without having to move off the sofa.

    Also known as dermarolling, micro needling is an on the up non-surgical anti-aging procedure that involves tiny punctures being pierced in the skin with very fine needles to rejuvenate skin, boost collagen and reduce the look of scarring. Sound painful? Not quite. Vice Reversa claim that you “won’t feel a thing” when wearing their patches, and unlike the in-salon micro needling facial, the pads don’t use a dermaroller, so are great for those who only want to dip a tentative toe in the pond of the beauty craze.

    Infused with hyaluronic acid, amino acids and peptides, which penetrate the skin more deeply once the punctures have been made, the pads get to work within two hours – though the brand recommends leaving them on over night for optimum results. After cleansing, just place the pads in target areas on your face – namely, under the eyes and along smile lines – then sit back and let them do the work for you. Use them twice a week for best results.

    And it seems we’re not the only ones desperate to try this buzzy new beauty hack – the pads proved so popular after their launch that they sold out within 24 hours! Lucky for us, they’re now back in stock – so grab them here before they go! Or if it’s an anti-blemish treatment you’re after, try the brand’s Micro Needling Pimple Patches to get rid of a pesky spot, stat.

We Are Wild Skincare UK Review – Stick-based Regime By Really Ree

 

  • The US stick-only skincare brand We Are Wild has launched in the UK and I am rather taken with it. Not only is it super convenient and travel friendly but the formulations feature probiotic and fermentation technology. Here is everything you need to know.

    What are the We Are Wild Products? So this is a super concise and easy to understand collection which I am really happy to see. There are just three products in the core collection!

    Probiotic Cleanser – Solid Clean
    Probiotic Toner / Hydrating Serum – Solid Water
    Nourishing Balm Moisturiser – Solid Oil

    Every product is vegan, non-toxic and cruelty free, and offers up a complete regime. All you need to do is add sunscreen during the day.


    My Review

    I have tried out all three products and I have to say, I was instantly impressed. The range is dubbed as ‘recreation skincare’ and it’s all about ease of use, practical solutions and travelling light. I don’t really fit into this category at all, but I am still loving the products. Read More…

  • vice-reversa-duo
  • Vice Reversa Micro-Needling Plumping Patches, £34.95. Vice Reversa Pimple Patches, £19.95.
  • There’s nothing we love more than discovering new skincare products that actually do the job they promise to do – and do it well. And while we are well aware that one size doesn’t fit us all when it comes to skincare, sometimes, it almost does and that seems to be the case with the latest microneedling pumping mask.
  • The internet has been going absolutely crazy for the popular mask by newly launched Australian skincare brand Vice Reversa. The microneedling skin-fix patches have been receiving rave reviews for not only their impressive results and but being super easy-to-use at home. So much so, that they sold out within 24 hours of launching.
