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.

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:

  1. Hyaluronic Acid: This is a humectant that helps to attract and retain moisture, thus providing hydration to the skin.
  2. Peptides: Peptides are amino acid compounds that can help support the production of collagen, which is essential for skin elasticity and firmness.
  3. Arnica: Arnica is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and is often used to soothe irritated or inflamed skin.
  4. Silicone: Silicone-based ingredients can create a protective barrier on the skin’s surface, helping to lock in moisture and create a smooth texture.
  5. 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.
  6. Glycerin: Glycerin is another humectant that helps to draw moisture into the skin, providing hydration.
  7. 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?

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

  2. 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

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

  4. 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

  5. The fact that it helped accelerate healing on your spots sounds really impressive. I’ve never tried this product before but I want to now!

  6. 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

  7. i’ve never used anything of theirs, but all the reviews i see seem to be great:-) and i probably say this about all samples, but the tininess makes it look so cute, haha! xx

  8. I actually like the simple, no fuss packaging because I know I’m not paying extra for it. I have been getting a couple of spots recently and this might just help me with it!

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.
