Beauty Review: Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy


I have a confession to make – I only started really moisturising my face daily about three years ago. Shocked? Well, I didn’t realise that it was a “young lady” thing too, and not just reserved for the over 30s.

Now that I’m on my way to 30 (double shock) I have really changed my tune and thanks to my GFs obsession with skin care I have discovered the best products for my skin.

Being summer, my skin has been taking a beating and being a sensitive soul, inside and out, I have to be very careful with what I slather all over my face.

I tried Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream on a whim after a then-pregnant friend re-gifted E & I with a few different products by the brand (it wasn’t working for her pregnancy glow). I was very surprised that my own touchy skin did not react badly to the product at all, in fact I found it to be a perfect match for my skin.

I apply a thin layer of the slightly sticky cream most evenings and I’m waking up to glowing, fresh skin and (surprisingly) no breakouts.

And the company is not affiliated with animal testing so that is another plus.

Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream retails for $45.95 online, or maybe you can find a pregnant friend who wants to pass it onto you…

What age did you REALLY start looking after your skin?
