Sez Says – Apect Gold SMC

By | Posts | No Comments

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet.

After a manic month of work and a cheeky trip to North Queensland my skin was well and truely under the pump.

Multiple makeup looks per day, and zero makeup free time will always have a negative impact upon your skin.

Travel often leaves my skin dehydrated, dull and lack lustre. Now with winter in full force hydration is of the upmost importance when caring for your skin. A product that single handedly got me through the past month was the Apect GOLD SMC – Super Moisturising Complex. Let me tell you they were not mucking around with this bad boy full of cell targeting ingredients it certainly packs a punch.

Aspect Gold SMC contains nutrients and cell targeting molecules leaving skin feeling and looking nourished smooth and plump. Ingredient combinations of Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium PCA for hydration. Potent antioxidants in the form of Green Tea, Grape Seed Extract and Oil Soluble Vitamin C to combat aging. Combined with fruit extracts of cucumber and Canadian Willow Herb to nourish, condition skin and braided protect against free radicals.

Applied twice a day morning and night I found I was able to maintain a hydrated complexion without looking oily.

Anyone who’s been following for a while now knows that I adore aspect as a brand but this baby may be my new favourite secret weapon. My skin just drank this up and it’s now a must have staple in my bathroom cupboard.

Follow with some clear eyes and lip balm and you’ll look refreshed, hydrated and ready to take on the work week.



Product Spotlight – HALO by Dermal Hub – Sez Says

By | Posts | No Comments

I will never forget my first visit to a Dermal Clinic. I was 20, and suffering from some pretty severe cystic and hormonal acne.

My initial consult with the team at Victorian Dermal Group was eye opening to say the least. I was so enamoured with fixing my acne that I never stopped to consider my skin health overall.

The defining moment for me was when I saw my skin photographed under the Ultra Violet light displaying all sun exposure and pigmingation. I was shocked at just how much sun damage my 20 year old skin had endured, not to mention the risks of Skin Cancer and Melanoma. Thankfully most of it had yet to reach the surface and i still had time to correct . I vowed right then and there to make a change and have been a lover of all things sun protection since.

SPF 50+ Sunscreen, Sunglasses and Baseball caps are my go-to’s all summer long keeping me SunSmart and the UV damage at bay.

I’ve never been one to settle for mediocrity so when I heard about the launch of an innovative sun shield that offers 99% UVA and UVB protection I knew I had to give it a whirl.

Ladies and gentlemen I present to you..

HALO – By Dermal Hub

So what exactly is it?

The HALO face shield is a Sun protective visor. It encompasses a UV 400 Protective film – UV 400 is considered the highest form of protection provided by lenses against Ultraviolet Radiation .

Why do you need it?

The HALO works as a defence on the most sensitive part of your skin (the face). Blocking harmful UV rays as a first defence against sunburn.

Used in conjunction with sunblock, the HALO visor can minimise the risk of skin cancers and melanoma.

As an added bonus to your skin health, it also works to lessen wrinkles, spots and discolouration bought on by direct sun exposure.

Why do I love it?

In my opinion this baby is completely changing beach culture. It’s chic and fashionable but also super practical and most importantly SunSmart. It’s completely transparent when worn so enables me to sit and read a book or scroll ‘the gram’. It decreases sun exposure to not only the face and neck but also for my eyes and I’ve even been rocking it on my daily walks (copped a few stares I’ll be honest).

Overall, I highly recommend any product that encourages SunSmart practices coupled with  anti aging benefits, all while looking fashionable AF!

A Win/Win in my book and a fantastic addition to my beach bag used in conjunction with sunscreen.

.. and for the cherry on top of this SunSmart Sundae I feel it important to add HALO by Dermal Hub is designed here in Melbourne with all materials sourced in Australia.  #SupportLocal
