[Review] PCA Skin Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45

 

It’s mid of the year now and the weather has turned really burning hot lately. I’m so afraid of sun damage hence I will make sure to apply sunscreen on my face, neck and even my upper eyelid before I ever leave the house. It is one skincare product I can’t leave without whether if it’s rain or shine.

When it comes to rating sunscreens, there are two things I will look out for – it has to contain potent UVA sunscreen ingredients and also with high PA rating. I’m always on the lookout for good sunscreen products and I have recently found one.

Quite a while ago, I’ve received the PCA Skin Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45 and I was delighted to give it a try.

PCA Skin, founded by an aesthetician in 1990, is a product line that is only available at doctor’s office in Singapore. I’m pleased to learn that every PCA Skin’s SPF-rated product actually provides reliable broad-spectrum sun protection. I got to know about this brand at an aesthetics practitioner’s office many years ago. The first PCA Skin product I’ve tested is PCA Skin ExLinea Peptide Smoothing Serum, click HERE to read my review.

3 PCA Skin® Products I’ve received

 

Quite a while ago, I was invited by Zoë & Nissi to an exclusive event to learn more about PCA Skin® skincare products. Zoë & Nissi Pte Ltd is the exclusive distributor in selected ASEAN countries namely Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore. It has a decade long of experience in distributing quality and innovative physician dispensed skin health products in this region.

I believe many of us are not familiar with this brand named PCA Skin®. Currently, it is only available at selected aesthetics doctors’ clinics. PCA Skin® is a healthcare company who’s clinically research and scientifically formulated products have been designed to work in treating such skin conditions as acne, aging skin, sensitive skin and hyperpigmentation. PCA Skin® is one of the first to provide these products to the medical and clinical aesthetics markets.

Review – PCA Skin ExLinea Peptide Smoothing Serum

PCA Skin ExLinea Peptide Smoothing Serum is the first peptide product I have tested and I have to say it really is one of best product I have used so far.

It is a serum packed with powerful potent ingredients that smooth, hydrate and nurture aging skin that diminish the appearance of existing wrinkles and fighting future damage.

Ingredients

It is formulated with Argireline, a proven peptide that reduces the depth of existing lines and prevents future wrinkling due to over-stimulation of facial muscles similar to Botox injections.

Hyaluronic acid and plant polysaccharides increase skin moisture, providing a plumper, firmer and youthful complexion.

Rosa Rubiginosa Seed Oil, a good emollient oil, provides high concentrations of the essential fatty acids that are vital for healthy skin.

PCA Skin ExLinea Peptide Smoothing Serum also contains a blend of antioxidants and advanced actives fight free radicals and provide the skin with an immediate tightening and lifting effect.

  • Witch hazel – has potent antioxidant properties
  • Ascorbic acid – form of a vitamin C that has antioxidant properties.
  • Epigallocatechin gallate – a potent antioxidant, posses anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic properties. It can prevent collagen breakdown and reduce UV damage to skin.
  • Tocotrienols and tocopherol – potent forms of vitamin E that are considered stable and powerful antioxidants. They are excellent in protecting skin from the adverse effects of oxidative stress including sun damage.

In my opinion

Though it contains ingredients like melissa officinalis leaf oil and santalum album oil, that may irritate skin but I guess it is worth to give this product a try.

Texture

Lightweight and watery. It can be applied on the eye area.

Results

Wrinkles and lines around my eye areas and forehead have significantly reduced.
