"I've been using the pigmentation products for a month now, I'm very happy with the results, my brown spots have certainly faded, my overall skin is looking much better, and I'm looking forward to even greater results as I continue on using this fabulous skin care regime. I love the way my skin feels after each use and my makeup glides on to give a nice dewy effect which I haven't been able to achieve for some time. I'm feeling more confident in being able to reduce my makeup usage overall."

Ageless: Microneedle Patches

ESK eye patch trial. Super easy to use. Once applied the patch blends in well against the skin. I applied the patch at night after my normal evening skincare routine (using ESK 4 & 5+) and left it until morning. As a 60 year old with sun damaged skin, I found this product to be brilliant with noticeable results to skin tone and pigmentation after the 12 day trial.

Ageless: Microneedle Patches

Please find attached my before and after pics for the patch review. Left eye before, right eye after 12 days of every second day applying a patch to my under eye.

I found the patches easy to use and I think they added more moisture to the fine skin under my eye.
They made the under eye more plump and my dark circle didn’t seem so dark.
Thanks for the opportunity to try these, I love trying your new creations. 😊

I noticed under my left eye after the patch test the wrinkles looked lesser. I would definitely purchase the patches and use for longer!

"Hi, my name is Kelly and I have suffered with problematic skin for most of my life. I had terrible acne and chicken pocks as a child that resulted in scarring. Then along came the fine lines and wrinkles. In just under two weeks, I have seen a massive change! The regime is incredibly easy to follow, you don’t need much of it and it is an Australian product! I am finally proud of my skin and cannot wait to see what my face looks like in a month! I am so grateful! Thank you Esk!"

"I would just like to say how impressed I am with ESK skin care.

I turn the big 60 this year and have be looking for a skin care for mature skin. I was watching Sunrise and Ginni came on talking about ESK. So I thought I would give it ago and I loved the fact that it was made in Australia. I love the way the cleanser made my skin feel so clean and light and the way the products sunk straight into my skin. Which I have been looking for forever. Most products just sit on top of my skin which is frustrating and can be very expensive.

My skin looks smoother and plumper. Finally something that works 😊 Thanks ESK"

Ultimate A+, Acne-prone/Oily kit

"The Ultimate A+ is mind glowingly 20 times more superior than Retinol. Yet it doesn’t make my skin peel at all! It gives me all the benefits of a strong retinol serum without the annoying parts, all I’ve been asking for!"

"E.S.K is a fabulous product. I thought I would struggle to incorporate a skincare routine in my life but after using E.S.K for a month, I realised how easy and rewarding it is to take better care of my skin. I love that all the bottles are labelled using numbers so even on a busy morning, I can certainly take care of my skin without worry."

"I have noticed an overall difference in the feel of my skin, it feels more plump and the colour has evened out. Wrinkles appear to have less depth. I have just started to use eye serum which I am excited about.

Extremely impressed with results so far, only regret is I wish I had started using it sooner."

"Well what a remarkable change my face has had, I have now been using your skin now for 6mths and what a difference I have experienced, my skin not only looks heaps better but also feels amazing. The softness of the skin is unbelievable. Very, very happy and I have actually weaned myself off my medication for my skin. I have tried coming off it before and within a month my face would be a mess and would have to go back on to control the acne rosacea again.

I will attach photos of before treatment and now. Once again, thank you again for your amazing products."

"Over the past 3 weeks I've been using ESK Skincare as my morning and nighttime routine and let me tell you, I'm pretty impressed with it. The bottles are numbered so you know exactly what to use, when to use it and in what order. And there aren't a ton of steps, making it a regimen I was able to maintain. My trouble spot is my forehead and as you can see, in a short amount of time, my acne has visibly cleared up!"

"I have used a lot of different skincare products over the years, including professional clinical products and without a doubt, I have found ESK skincare to be the best. Their evidence based products feel lovely on my skin and my expression/age lines have softened and are less noticeable. I am lucky to be blessed with good skin, especially for my age, but ESK products are definitely making a positive difference and my skin looks and feels healthy. I am a repeat customer and will happily remain a loyal one."

"Prior to using ESK my skin was horrible, I tried lots of different skin care products, medication, saw a skin care specialist and nothing worked. It was my mum that actually found ESK and got me using the products and within a week my skin had already cleared up. I absolutely love how they feel and how reliable this brand is. I use my products every day morning and night and don't know what I would do without them!"

"I have been using ESK skincare products for about 8 months now and I’m absolutely loving the results. I’m in my 50’s and was concerned with ageing and dryness. I find the ESK products have really improved my dry skin and overall skin texture. I also find the pump application great and one pump gives you the right amount so you’re not wasting any product. I was initially drawn to ESK because it is Australian made, evidence based and cruelty free but have continued with it because I’m loving the results and find it’s great value for money.

All in all I’m very happy with the products and couldn’t recommend them more highly."

Vitamin A Retinaldehyde Night Cream

When it comes to cosmeceutical skincare, no ingredient has more evidence to support its use than Vitamin A. This blockbuster ingredient has strong evidence for anti ageing effects, working to promote collagen growth, increase skin elasticity, and even out pigmentation. It has also been shown to be highly effective for combatting acne, and even rosacea. That’s because Vitamin A promotes skin cell turnover, breaks down pimples plus it also has anti-inflammatory effects. ESK’s vitamin A skincare products have been formulated with the highest level of evidence to create a powerful vitamin A night cream. That’s because we use Retinaldehyde AKA Retinal. Retinal is a derivative of Vitamin A and is clinically proven to be 20 times more powerful than its old school cousin, Retinol. Apart from its superior efficacy, Retinal is extremely well tolerated, even by the most sensitive skin. 

Our best-selling retinaldehyde skincare products are incorporated into our suggested kits, from acne and rosacea kits to anti-aging and pigmentation kits.
