Healgel Face Review

HealGel face is something I’ve always wanted to try, but I wasn’t going to pay £50 for a product unless I knew if it worked for me.

Last time I did that, I bought Alpha H’s Liquid Gold and it was such a disappointment.

I got this sample at a blog event (I think!) and I’ve been meaning to try it out for ages. That time is now.

Healgel Face Review

My impressions:

I had a 5ml sample of this which I knew wasn’t enough to give me a long term impression, but I used it for about 3 days in a row.

I do quite like the packaging, it’s very basic and has a professional medicinal look to it. Whether you want your products to look like they could have been prescribed to you by a doctor or not is probably down to personal preference.

I’ve heard some people dislike the packaging and expect such an expensive product to have more visually appealing packaging.

HealGel Face is a white cream that’s slightly more liquidy than most moisturisers. It has a slight smell that reminds me a bit of salt/play dough.

It’s not oily at all and sinks into the skin nicely.

Though I can’t say it reduced fine lines after just using the sample, it did do one thing that amazed me.

I had 3 big spots on my chin. I used this before going to bed and when I woke up I was actually surprised to see that the spots had turned into tiny red dots. I’ve never seen my spots do that before.

I hadn’t changed any other skincare products, so I can only assume that the HealGel Face made my spots reduce in size and start healing faster.

I’m now considering buying this in full size just for that magic!

    Getting results after a few days is really impressive. Didn’t use it before, but I’ll keep it in mind.

    It’s good that it helps spots and with longer use it might start working on the fine lines. For £50 I would have to save up the pennies Lucy x

    I haven’t heard of this before but it does sound good, especially with such quick results!

    I like the packaging on it, it looks very simple and easy to identify! The fact the it minimised your spots is fantastic – I’ve been searching for a product that does that after only having bad reactions with others. £50 is a bit steep, but if I ever win the lottery I’m going to splash out on it =p

    It definitely sounds like it’s worth it! I’m not really fussed about packaging as long as the product does the job 🙂 I know what you mean, I don’t mind splashing out on something as long as I know it definitely works, it’s a shame the Liquid Gold was such a disappointment. Great post x

    Ohh wooow, getting results after that quickly is amazing! I’m exactly the same as you, in the fact that I wouldn’t want to shell out this amount of money unless I knew it worked for me. So great that it worked well for you though! Lovely post x

    I really want to try Healgel. It sounds amazing, and most people who have tried it have loved it. Just wish it wasn’t so expensive! I will have to save up and treat myself one day.

    Wow this is pretty awesome, I personally don’t mind the packaging, but I think the smell may bother me because I cannot stand the smell of play dough.
