Fiona’s Summer ‘Must-Have’ – Medik8

Medik8 products CE-Thione


Since we launched award-winning global skincare brand Medik8 within Zen, I’ve been using their serums and creams religiously. And I have to admit, I’m hooked.

You see, Medik8’s range of skin solutions – products specifically formulated to target skin-ageing, acne, redness, pigmentation and dryness – is impressive with fast, targeted results. We only stock a 12-strong capsule range of serums and creams, cherry picked complement our existing Murad and Elizabeth Arden PRO ranges. But each product seriously impresses.

Fighting Pigmentation

On my recent holiday to Spain I continued to use CE Thione as it’s excellent under sunscreen to protect skin against free radicals whilst also keeping uneven pigmentation at bay. It really is a hardworking, multi-tasking serum

Post holiday, I’ve got my eyes on the Retinol 3TR (0.3%) serum which I’ll use before progressing up to the Retinol 6TR 0.6%. As retinol is such a potent product, we always advise building up slowly to ensure it’s suitable for your skin type. I’ll use this a couple of times a week before bed and this will work to repair any damage whilst also rejuvenating the skin and reducing the appearance of sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles. It also speeds up the natural exfoliation of dead skin cells which is ideal after a holiday in the sun.

Top of my Wish List

My last hero product is the C- Tetra Cream which I’ve been using in the evening. It works to quickly brighten the skin, improves radiance and luminosity, hydrates and nourishes and also maintains healthy collagen and elastin. I love the texture and again like all the other products it just disappears into the skin.

For the first time in a while a lot of people have commented on my skin which is lovely and a huge boost. Medik8 is doing its job!
