This month, I'm exploring ‘next-level skincare’. This means products a cut above what you find in your high street chemist. Usually created by cosmetic doctors and dermatological specialists, these brands are sold at specialist skin clinics. They are highly focused on results and, if I say so myself, this selection are brilliant at achieving that.
Next-level skincare is often more expensive than your average high street brands and the packaging more clinical than luxe, but they contain more active and specialised ingredients which is where the cost of the products sit. In short, this selection is really special because it works that much harder than regular skincare, is more effective and I have genuinely seen the difference it can make. I have tried each of these products and I know they do what they claim, so here's your chance to try them for yourself at an amazing price.

QMS Medicosmetics Hydro Foam Mask / 50 ml / RRP: £23.00
QMS Medicosmetics Hydro Foam Mask is packed full of active ingredients that soothe, regenerate and deliver a powerful hydrating boost to the skin. Its lightweight micro-foam texture is absorbed instantly and makes a great overnight treatment mask.
Alice says "I love this mask because it’s a real treat for your face - particularly if you have been outside and find the sun and the breeze have left your skin parched. It comes out of the nozzle in a lovely firm, light foam that is easy to spread around the face (you don’t need much of it each time) and will stay in place for the 15 minutes it takes for the moisturising hyaluronic acid it contains to sink into your grateful skin. Ithas an anti-inflammatory effect, too (very soothing) and also contains silk proteins to leave your skin extra smooth. You don’t wash it off – if your skins anything like mine, it will all be absorbed. If there’s any residue, I just massage it in."
NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash / 100ml / RRP: £30.00
This potent cleanser was the first product ever produced by NeoStrata and has been the best selling product ever since. Loved by Elle Macpherson, the cleanser reveals youthful, brighter skin.
Alice says "NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash. This is a face wash I come back to time and again. Don’t be put off by the face that it's 'foaming’ – it doesn’t strip the skin of all its oils but it WILL leave the skin beautifully clear and ready to absorb any serums or moisturisers you maybe using. This is because the glycolic acid it contains (again, don’t be put off,it’s really helpful) gently loosens the bonds that hold old dead skin cells onto the skin’s surface, to give you a light exfoliating effect without any scratching or scrubbing."
24-Hour Skin Chemists Aqua Repair Facial Serum / 30ml /RRP: £59.99
This 24 Hour Aqua Repair Facial Serum has been formulated to soothe and hydrate the skin for all day moisturisation. This serum would be the perfect product to use on the go for a quick zap of hydration.
Alice says, "This is a brilliant product for hydrating your skin from Skin Chemists – they’re a great brand, with thoughtful formulations that are often a bit unconventional, but very effective.
The key ingredients here are rose water, which is very calming on the skin, Allantoin which is moisturising and anti-inflammatory – so again that has a calming effect on the skin and aloe vera which is also moisturising and soothing. As you can see, this is a gel, and it’s the kind of thing I particularly like using at this time of year because my skin always feels like it needs hydrating. Skin needs that moisture, but in the summer what it doesn’t need so much is the oiliness you usually get with a face cream. So I just use this, then sunscreen, and I’m good to go."
"It's a longer video than usual but I really wanted to explain these products well, so do bear with it!"
