We love chatting all things skincare, and if you’re a reader of this blog you probably do too! So what’s better than finding out about the products the team at Face the Future use every day! Next up is Alex L, who works in the skincare customer service team.

As authorised stockists of over 150 proven clinical brands, we are in the unique and fortunate position to be able to cherry-pick the very best products for our customers…and ourselves! Here’s the one product Alex L can’t live without…

What is the one product you can’t live without?

My skincare regime is targeted towards achieving a smooth base and helping my skin to look glowing, dewy and flawless. I’m in my thirties, so I’m also incorporating anti-ageing products into my routine to help keep the first signs of ageing at bay.

My favourite product and the one product I can’t live without is the Exuviance SkinRise Bionic Tonic pads. The serum-soaked pads are an incredible way to gently exfoliate, with a triple blend of Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs) helping to reveal a radiant complexion with enhanced clarity, smoothness and firmness.

I also like that the formula is alcohol-free and contains soothing eucalyptus and cucumber to refine and stimulate skin. Green tea extract helps to protect the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals and harmful environmental factors.

Why do you love it so much?

The SkinRise Bionic Tonic pads are my one stop solution in my skincare regime after cleansing. As the pads help to tackle pigmentation, deliver mild antioxidant properties as well as gently exfoliating and hydrating, they help keep my skincare routine to a minimum thanks to their multi-action properties.

In the past I have used stronger exfoliating tonics and pads that often left my skin feeling stripped, tight and dry. The innovative Poly Hydroxy Acid (PHA) formula removes dead skin cells and enhances cell turnover for a softer, smoother and more even skin tone.

PHAs offer a gentler approach to chemical exfoliation and are gentler on skin, causing less irritation thanks to their larger molecular structure, which penetrates skin at a slower rate and doesn’t disturb the deeper and more delicate layers of skin.

When did you first start using it?

I started working at Face the Future over a year ago and a colleague sent me a link to skincare expert Nadine Baggott’s YouTube video, all about PHAs. I had been considering give the Exuviance pads a go but the video spurred me on to try this wonderful product. And now I can’t live without them!

How do you use it – any tips?

Exuviance SkinRise Bionic Tonic pads are part of my morning routine every single day! Not only do the serum soaked pads smell amazing, they also help my skin to feel smooth, look glowing and helps my makeup glides on perfectly.

After cleansing in the morning with LABthetics Conditioning Milk Cleanser, I use half of one Exuviance SkinRise Bionic Tonic pads (more on that in a moment!) and sweep the pad over my face and neck. I then follow with a broad-spectrum SPF and then apply my makeup as normal to my smooth and hydrated complexion.

The pads are saturated with the innovative Bionic Tonic serum, so I find that I only really need half a pad to cover my entire face and neck. I just keep a small pair of scissors on my bathroom shelf and cut the pads in half when I need them – just a little money-saving tip for you!
