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.
The 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
About HealGel Face
HealGel Face Cream is a skincare product that falls under the HealGel brand. HealGel is a skincare company known for producing advanced and specialized products that aim to improve the health and appearance of the skin.
HealGel Face Cream is designed to provide hydration, soothe irritated skin, and help with various skin concerns, including dryness, redness, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It typically contains a blend of ingredients that are chosen for their potential benefits for the skin. However, specific ingredient formulations and product details might have changed since then.
Typically, such creams include ingredients like:
- Hyaluronic Acid: This is a humectant that helps to attract and retain moisture, thus providing hydration to the skin.
- Peptides: Peptides are amino acid compounds that can help support the production of collagen, which is essential for skin elasticity and firmness.
- Arnica: Arnica is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and is often used to soothe irritated or inflamed skin.
- Silicone: Silicone-based ingredients can create a protective barrier on the skin’s surface, helping to lock in moisture and create a smooth texture.
- Dimethicone: This is a type of silicone that is often used in skincare products to provide a silky feel and to help fill in fine lines and pores, creating a smoother appearance.
- Glycerin: Glycerin is another humectant that helps to draw moisture into the skin, providing hydration.
- Bioactive Ingredients: Different versions of HealGel Face Cream might include additional bioactive ingredients like antioxidants, vitamins, and plant extracts to provide additional benefits.
Please note that skincare products, including HealGel Face Cream, may vary in terms of ingredients, formulations, and effectiveness. It’s always a good idea to check the product’s packaging or the manufacturer’s official website for the most up-to-date information on ingredients and usage instructions.

My impressions of HealGel Face:
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 liquid than most moisturisers. It has a slight smell that reminds me of 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 HealGel in full size just for that magic!
Have you tried HealGel before? What did you think?
