Just wondering whether any beauties have used Copper Peptides in their skin care routine? I'm just starting to notice them a lot more now (not sure whether I was oblivious to them before now) Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I can't help you, Janefre.
OK this is just my take based on using for approximately one year - I'm not convinced but that is because I use actives like Tretinoin that do what the benefits of copper peptides are (namely regeneration and increasing collagen production etc).
I noticed no immediate/extra benefit when I added to my routine but Tret is strong and the benefits are really apparent in the short term. Peptides work quietly in the longer term and you don't get that bang like you do when you use something like Vit C or retin A but not to say it's not working.
I remember reading the following journal article and thinking wow they sound good and that's why I tried.
Thanks for the information. That journal article is very interesting.
I have used the copper peptide serum from NIOD, Janefre it comes with a Hyaluronic serum. I remember really liking the duo, the most noticeable difference to my skin was that it looked more radiant. In saying that, I only used the one set. I wanted to buy again, but didn't want to spend the money, lol. I've since bought the Buffet serum with copper peptides, but am yet to use that one.
Thanks for your reply Indie I was looking at The Ordinary version but have seen a new skincare range in Priceline called "Clear Skincare" who have a Copper Peptide serum about the same price.
Jan, just be aware of the size. The Ordinary one is 30ml, CS is 15 ml. The Ordinary comes also with the coctail of other awesome goodies. So CS one is double in price, ingredients differ too.
Thanks ** Yohanna** I didn't see that :)
Simple Kind To Skin Smoothing Facial Scrub feels good on the skin. It removes dirt, oil and impurities from the skin. It isn't harsh on the skin.
Minenssey The Clay Mask Skin Revival Set is a pretty cool clay mask set. You can choose between different masks and is like having a spa treatment in your own home. I tried a mask for 20 minutes.
I tested this as part of as part of the Minenssey Hydrating trial team. I have combination skin and used the toner every night immediately after cleansing and found this worked incredibly well.
