Shannan J

Ultimate A+, Acne-prone/Oily kit

"The Ultimate A+ is mind glowingly 20 times more superior than Retinol. Yet it doesn’t make my skin peel at all! It gives me all the benefits of a strong retinol serum without the annoying parts, all I’ve been asking for!"

Hydroxy Overnight Mask, Enlighten, Pigmentation Kit

"So I've been using ESK Skincare’s Hydroxy Overnight Mask a couple of nights a week for a few weeks now and I am definitely impressed. It leaves my face glowing in the morning and doesn’t let it dry at all. Super hydrating mask! I've also used it to spot treat any breakout, dry and chapped skin! Don't you just love a product that not only works, but oh so versatile too!!!"

Emerson G

Hydroxy Cleanser, B Calm, Zinc Shade, Smooth Serum, Ultimate A+, Acne-prone/Oily kit

"I’ve never been so excited to share my results & most importantly my love for ESK Skincare.. I’ve been using their products for about 1 year now and I’ve never been so happy with the state of my skin. After suffering from Acne for 5+ years, I was recommended ESK from a family friend, since then I’ve never looked back.. Within 3 weeks of using the products I noticed a huge difference in the texture & size of my Acne. I love that ESK is evidence based skincare, uses scientifically tested products and really cares about their customers. After spending years and years trying skincare products, I’m so glad I found ESK.. never looking back!"

Deanna A

Hydroxy Overnight Mask, Acne-prone/Oily kit

"In these photos I used the mask twice- once as a full face over night mask and once as a spot treatment on my blemishes. It assisted in reducing my blemishes significantly, making them no longer inflamed and sore. I really enjoy this product as a spot treatment but also as an overnight mask I wake up with the most gorgeous and glowing skin!"

Gillie M

Hydroxy Cleanser, B Calm, Zinc Shade, Smooth Serum, Ultimate A+, Acne-prone/Oily kit

"My experience - My skin has always been terribly hard to control acne wise. I have struggled with acne for 15 years and have tried almost every product under the sun (or so it feels). I am used to a lot of cystic acne along the jawline and neck. After using these products, my skin broke out into a lot of tiny bumps and texture. My skin got significantly worse but I was supported all the way by Tess. I am persevering and can happily say the last few days my skin is beginning to clear. I do have significant scarring and a few big bumps but the overall skin health is beginning to improve again. I cannot fault the customer service and support from your team! I am truly hoping this line are the products I have been dreaming of in the long run!"

Natalia W

Hydroxy Cleanser, B Calm, Smooth Serum, Ultimate A+, Hydroxy Overnight Mask, Acne-prone/Oily kit

"I’ve been very open about my sudden onset of hormonal acne after going off the pill. I’ve tried multiple products with little results, nothing really worth sticking to. I started to notice one product that was often mentioned by girls with similar issues, Ultimate A+ (retinal and niacinamide based) night cream. So, I jumped on the ESK website and had a look at their acne skincare collection. Since then, I have been religiously using the Hydroxy Cleanser, Smooth Serum, Ultimate A+ and their Hydroxy Overnight mask. The results speak for themselves! By no means has this cured my breakouts but the spots are smaller, less angry and last about half the time! I’m super impressed with this range and given it’s been formulated by doctors, dermatologists and scientists I’m not surprised at the results!"

Evidence-based oily skincare products

Oily skin can not only lead to break out but can look shiny and is often perceived as dirty skin. It often comes with large pores that can make the skin look rough, too. So, before you shell out for oily skincare products, you need to know all about the skin’s natural oil or sebum! 

Sebum is made up of a range of fats including squalene, wax and cholesterol “esters”, triglycerides, free fatty acids and free sterols. When it comes to oil, most of us make around 1mg/10cm2 of skin every three hours. When that drops by 50% you get dry skin. But if it goes up by 50%, it becomes excessive and results in oily skin. How much oil you make in your skin is often genetic and people of colour often have oilier skin than fair skinned people. The male hormone, testosterone also drives up your oil production (so that affects men and also some women and girls with certain hormone problems). Humid weather can also increase oil production. 

Controlling oily skin can be difficult. When it comes to shopping for oily skincare products, look for blockbuster cosmeceutical ingredients that will correct your oil levels and combat the effects of oily skin. Vitamin A  AKA Retinal not only dials down oil production, but also reduces facial pore size. Evidence suggests that Vitamin B3 AKA Niacinamide significantly lowers oil secretion rates after two to four weeks of regular use. Early evidence also suggests that green tea might help combat excess oil production. Using Alpha Hydroxy Acids or AHAs is beneficial for acne but hasn’t been studied for oily skin without acne- but it makes sense to include it!
