Celebrities Swear by This Cult Skincare Brand, and It Just Got An Aussie Stockist
For those yet to be acquainted with iS Clinical, it is fast becoming a cult-favourite skincare brand with celebrities like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Chrissy Teigen, January Jones and Zoey Deutch (to name a few) and beauty experts like Melanie Grant and Shani Darden all lining their bathroom cabinets with the recognisable iS' blue bottles.
Known for their skin-changing serums and gentle cleanser, the brand recently launched in Australia and is now stocked at Sydney-based salon, The Parlour Room Clovelly. And you don't just have to be a local to get your hands on it, you can purchase it online from TPR's online store.
Their formulas, revered for combining highly active ingredients and plant-derived extracts with modern science, are fragrance and paraben-free and directly tackle all major skin concerns — dry, dull skin, anti-aging, pigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture. Their range revolves around four key steps: cleanse, treat, hydrate and protect, and with each product conceptualised and produced in-house, a 'dupe' would be hard to find.
When it comes to ingredients, think high-grade, dermatologist recommended ingredients like plant-derived acids, vitamins A to E, stem cells and ceramides, all combined to deliver real results in real time. Users of the brand's star serum and cleanser have reported visible improvements in a matter of days.
Given that Winter is looming, I decided to swap out my regular moisturiser in favour of their Reparative Moisture Emulsion to see what all the hype was about, and it's good, real good. The texture is rich and creamy, the kind you'd expect from a moisturiser that lines the walls of a celebrity dermatologist. Two pumps evenly coat my face and décolletage and leave my skin feeling thoroughly hydrated and slightly tacky, though not in a bad way. In a way that tells me my skin now has a glassy barrier protecting it from environmental factors and sealing in much needed hydration.
After a week or so of wear my skin is noticeably brighter, softer, bouncier and less dry than before. I've also been using their famous Pro-Heal Serum on alternate days underneath the moisturiser, which is what I suspect is to thank for my brighter complexion. This little baby is potent, the good kind of potent, hence why I'm only using it on alternating days. The formula is a fierce combination of active vitamin A and C, meaning it does wonders for dull, uneven skin tone, minimising acne scars and pigmentation and restoring life to tired skin (Hi, me). It is safe enough to use daily for most skin types, but given that my skin is about as sensitive as a Cancer during Gemini season, I tend to play it safe with high-active serums.
While I've only sampled two products from the highly sought after range (and seen pretty incredible results thus far), I'm keen to stock up on some more of their cult-favourites — read: the cleanser and SPF — to see if I can reach Rosie HW level skin.
