HealGel Intensive

If you are a regular reader of Beautyqueenuk then you will be aware that I am a bit of a big fan of the HealGel range and have reviewed both Heal Gel Eye and Heal Gel Face and honestly they are simply fabulous, so when asked if I would like to try a further product from the range I jumped at the chance and through my letterbox came HealGel Intensive.

I have said this before and will say it again, the packaging is always the first thing I love about this brand.  There is something about the design and the font which for me stands right out and catches my attention.  As with the other products, HealGel Intensive comes in a tube which is bright green in colour.

The aqueous gel can be used anywhere on your face and body to help soothe, repair & protect the skin.  It does have a lot of uses such as helping to fade any scarring left over from blemishes, helping to heal up skin problems like eczema and it is said to help with both sunburn and bruises. The part which excited me the most though was that you can even use it as a primer before applying your make-up, now how amazing is that?  It is like a multi-use balm with more uses than anything I have yet to like and guess what? It does exactly what it states it will do.

The clever people behind Heal gel describe this product as follows:

"HealGel is an aqueous gel, bringing together the best active ingredients to soothe, repair and protect your skin.

The advanced skin rescue formula was designed by a team of the world's leading plastic surgeons and a renowned dermatological biochemist.

It is cleverly designed; the nano-technological elements deliver predictably to the depth of the skin where they are needed most.

It is easy to use, being light, non-greasy and delicately fragranced. It provides a perfect primer for any make-up applied, and you only need to use it sparingly".

So there you have it. 

Once the gel is on your hand, it feels quite similar to Maybelline Baby Skin, but softer.  It is silicone based, but given my skin has no issue with that I was more than happy to use it. It is said that silicone is used because it helps to seal in the active ingredients of Arbica and Madecassoside given them more of a chance to penetrate deeper into the skin to where they are most needed.  Further ingredients include powerful peptides to increase collagen production, decrease fine lines, swelling and puffinessIn short it is said to be good for burns, redness, bruises, strains and stretchmarks, rosacea and wrinkles. 

As this isn't just for your face but for anywhere on your body, for me it has that little extra something.  Now I do suffer with rosacea occasionally, it flares up and then goes again plus I have a dry patch of skin on each cheek.  So I have been using this product as a primer before applying make-up and all you need is just a few pumps of the gel from the dispenser to apply to your skin.  For the first few weeks of using this, I applied it to my entire face and having done so, I was surprised at how soft and smooth my skin immediately became once it had absorbed.  Applying make-up over the top was also a breeze and it was so nice to not have foundation and CC creams sticking to those dry patches of skin on my cheeks - so already I am impressed!

Did my make-up last? Well yes it did and better than it had done with any other primer that I had tried, including Porefessional, which, in this weather is more than amazing!  I found that applying my make-up at 8am it was still in place at 7pm when I was getting home from work, the only thing I was touching up throughout the day was lipstick, but I would be doing that anyway, everything else remained in place.

The dry patches on my cheeks? Well after two weeks of using this gel they had totally gone, not a hint or trace of dry skin, instead my cheeks are as smooth as a babys bottom to coin a phrase.

The Roseacea?  Well it hasn't gone completely and it is quite hard to describe it, but if I was to say it looks as though someone has used a red crayon and then rubbed it out so it becomes a slightly less red, that is exactly what has happened, not so much the rosy red cheeks but just slightly pink, which for me is amazing and it does make me feel much less self-conscious.

Considering that I have been using HealGel Intensive for just 5 weeks it has been incredibly amazing and I am truly amazed at its results, yet again HealGel continues to be an impressive brand which lives up to each and everyone of its claims.

This sells for £37.50 and you can read more about it and the rest of the products within the range on the HealGel Website which you can find HERE

Face by HealGEL

HealGel is a brand I really really like.  The first thing that always catches my attention with the products from this range is the packaging, if you read my review of HealGel Eye then you will know I really rated it because it kind of looks like it has come from some very old fashioned pharmacy with its design and typeface and for me that really stood out.  The bottle itself is also as eye-catching and mimics the design of the box as you can see.

HealGel Face is a product I have been using a few times a week for a good few months now and the lovely people at HealGel say the following about this product:

"HealGel Face is an exceptional anti-ageing formula designed to smooth, firm and replenish to give instantly plumper, revitalised looking skin.

Arnica and Madecassoside are suspended in liposomes with powerful peptides and biodynes to initiate a uniquely soothing and collagen boosting process. HealGel Face also contains a unique blend of Omega Oils to replenish dehydrated skin and restore elasticity. To this another vital dimension is added; a powerful three part hyaluronic acid complex provides a plumping and tightening effect".

Well if that isn't enough to make you want to try it, I don't know what is.  To date both HealGel Eye and Face are really lightweight, the cream for me is more like a serum and once on the skin it is absorbed really quickly leaving no trace behind that it was really ever there other than this wonderful scent which appears from the natural oils, it is one of those scents that you most definitely get when you have been to a spa, instantly relaxing and you just know it is doing something good.

The bottle as you can see has a pump dispenser which I personally am a huge fan of, I believe products with pump dispensers are created this way because one pump from this is sufficient enough to cover your entire face and when you do so, I find it is instantly cooling on the skin, which is a really nice sensation.   Once on the face the notable difference in my skin is quite something, soft and smooth to the touch and on my cheeks where I often suffer from dry patches, HealGel Face is excellent in assisting me with moisturising that part of the skin, especially if I have just exfoliated and the same effect when I use it on the sides of my nose, which again I have issues with dry skin.

You can purchase HealGel Face from Feel Unique for £48.00 and I will be sad when my tube runs out because I absolutely love using it.

What do you think of HealGel Face? 
Have you tried any products from within the HealGel Range?

HealGel was created by a team of leading British plastic and cosmetic surgeons with the help of a renowned dermatological biochemist and a well known actor. They wanted to create products that helped them with their work, and to be able to provide the reassurance of genuinely effective skin care.  To read more about the company you can do so HERE

My Favourite Products of 2013 - Part 3

So far I have brought to you my favourite hair and body and lip products for 2013 and today you get to read about my favourite face products.


I found this one of the easiest categories to put together from all of the ones that I am sharing with you in this little series of posts.

DermaCo Revitalising Toner - I was introduced to DermaCo back in August and reviewed the product I am featuring today which you can see HERE.  This is my second bottle of the Toner which shows how much I really like.  It looks really good alonside my other products which sit on my bedside table and when I use it, it leaves me skin feeling soft, smooth and incredibly clean and there is no horrible chemical scent which used to put me off wanting to use Toners.

HealGel Face and Eye - Two products that would always feature in my favourites because they are just that.  I reviewed the Eye product which you can find HERE and the Face version is coming up on my blog shortly. From the packaging which is superb to the effects this product claims and lives up to, it is brilliant.

Balance Me Radiance Face Oil - One of my favourite brands to date, Balance Me introduced me to the world that is facial oil, a product that I never thought I would be able to using having combination/oily skin.  This was the first facial oil I used and I reviewed it HERE and I still love how it makes my skin feel.

La-Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water - a product I bought on the recommendation of other bloggers and one that I have enjoyed using, particularly when we had that hot blast of weather in the summer. I reviewed it HERE and love how it refreshed my skin whilst cooling me down during those hot few weeks.

Simple Kind to Skin Illuminating Radiance Cream - I am a huge huge fan of Simple products because you get exactly what you pay for and they do what they claim to do.  I love this Skin Illuminating Radiance Cream which I reviewed HERE and I love how it made my skin feel once I had applied it and it certainly adds a little something.

Origins High Potency Night A Mins Mineral Enriched Renewal Cream - Which is a bit of a mouthful to say but worth saying.  I got this cream in my goody bag after attending my very first blogger event with Company magazine and I had been looking for a good night cream and having been given this decided to try it out.  A review of it is coming soon but what I can say about it is that the cream itself is a really lovely texture which sinks into your skin as soon as it is applied and in the morning when I wake up, my skin feels lovely and moisturised, so it is especially good when my skin is needing a little TLC.

There you have my favourite skin care products of 2013, seven of them in total and each one of them has been a product I have gone back to time and time again.  

Would or have any of these products feature in your favourite products list?
