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.
What it does:
The purpose of HealGel is to cover up visible signs of ageing for firmer and smoother skin. It moisturises the skin and improves elastcitiy.

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!
Have you tried HealGel before? What did you think?
