mesoestetic Mesoprotech Melan 130 Pigment Control

Ranked by you as one of our best sunscreens for pigment control, mesoestetic’s Mesoprotech Melan 130 Pigment Control offers very high sun protection that’s ideal if you have skin pigmentation imperfections.

Delivering UVB 131 and UVA 67 protection, the tinted formula includes ingredients like Azeloglycine, that regulates melanin synthesis and helps to prevent pigmentation. It also protects against high-energy visible light (HEV) and infrared radiation (IR) to give you the ultimate defence against ageing rays.

With its slight tint, the formula helps to unify your skin tone, softly blurring out any imperfections and giving you a beautifully natural base.

What our customers say
Used this for the past year and half. I have bad pigmentation on my face, and this was recommended to me. It’s by far the best SPF I have tried for the face. Has good coverage no white mask at all, sinks in easily and good under makeup.” – Kalpna, FTF customer

What our customers say
“As recommended by Dr Vanita Rattan. Lovely & light coverage non sticky total face protection. Great alone like a BB cream/tinted moisturiser for my medium tan Indian skin tone. My third order from this site already. LOVE this sunscreen. Great service & delivery :) Blends beautifully without "ashy" after effect. No breakouts. No waiting. No heated skin after being in the Sun as it's physical sunscreen. Just a beautiful radiant glow to the skin!” – Anon, FTF customer

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Face Cleanser

This gentle cleanser is suitable for all skin types - even sensitive skin. With glycolic acid, the cleanser works to provide your skin with a thorough, deep cleanse whilst gently resurfacing your skin to leave you with a smoother, more refined texture. 

With the addition of sorbitol, a natural berry-derived humectant, the formula hydrates and softens your skin, leaving it feeling comfortable and soothed.

What our customers say
“Probably the best facial cleanser out there on the market today. I was advised to use this and the bio serum back in 2008 before laser treatment for acne scarring. But after a month of using it, my skin cleared so well that I decided against laser treatment. This product really IS that good.” – Jarrar, FTF customer

iS Clinical Cleansing Complex

This powerful cleansing gel is a powerhouse product for providing your skin with a thorough, deep cleanse without stripping your skin of its essential natural oils.

Although the formula provides powerful action, it remains gentle enough for even sensitive skin, making it a firm favourite amongst our FTF community and one of your best cleanser choices, even for those with hypersensitive skin. 

Containing an innovative balance of bio nutrients, along with free radical fighting antioxidants, and mild resurfacing ingredients, the formula helps to gently resurface your skin, minimise the appearance of pores, and also helps to control acne breakouts. 

The cleanser contains a range of active ingredients that work together to provide your skin with a number of benefits. Ingredients include:

Salix alba (willow) bark extract: to heal and prevent blemishes whilst reducing pore size. 

Saccharum officinarum (sugar cane) extract: that gently but effectively removes the outermost layer of dead cells from your skin leaving a brightened, rejuvenated look.

Retinyl palmitate (vitamin A): that works to boost your natural collagen fibre production helping to revitalise your skin and provide anti-ageing effects. 

Tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E): an antioxidant helping to protect your skin against free radical damage that is caused by UV exposure.

Ascorbyl palmitate (vitamin C): a non-irritating ingredient that is more stable than pure vitamin C, making it ideal for hypersensitive skin.

What our customers say
“Absolute holy grail! I’m on my third bottle now and this is the best cleanser I have ever used. I have sensitive combo skin and it feels super clean without feeling stripped or tight. I use this for my morning or 2nd cleanse in the evening. Feel like it has improved my skin overall as I suffer from breakouts and enlarged pores, this has minimised both issues!” – Holly, FTF customer

What our customers say
“This stuff is amazing. I bought some for my girlfriend as an Xmas present and when I saw the effects, I tried it myself. I am not easily parted from my money, but I ordered 2 more bottles straight away. You can feel it working, you can even see it working, my skin feels soft and clear and looks great and it is great. I am usually very sceptical of ‘miracle’ beauty products, but this peptide stuff really is top-end stuff. As a man, my skincare routine is fairly poor but the instant visible difference this stuff has made makes me more thorough and regular with a daily skin-care regimen.” – Stan, FTF customer
