The much anticipated 111SKIN from Dr Y Alexandrides launched this week and judging it based on what I have tried so far - it does not disappoint. A collaboration between the Doctor and two space scientists, they have taken years of research and blended it perfectly with years of experience to give an extremely high tech range that promises the most advanced and sophisticated anti-ageing treatments available on the current market.

The key ingredient across the range is NAC Y2, a potent anti-oxidant that stimulates the production of glutathione - thus - in layman's terms, providing scaffolding support for your face.

Not so much a concern when you're 15. The only concern when you're 42. Trust in the Hirons. And if you're not interested in having your face injected with botulism or fillers - as I am not (Why WOULD you DO that?!) - this could be right up your alley.

I've been using a sample of the serum for a couple of weeks and the results are clearly visible. Plumper over the cheek area, smoother in texture and it has definitely contributed to my 'glow'. You lose your glow as you head towards perimenopause/menopause - Mother Nature's way of making you less physically attractive to the opposite sex because you can no longer procreate. How bloody rude.

Still, that's why the Sweet Baby Jesus gave us dermatologists, blusher and 111Skin. Amen.

111Skin is available now from Harrods. Prices start at £35 for a cleanser and go up to £190 for THAT serum.

Go get your glow on Ladies.

  1. You know that I will follow where you lead :) and with a birthday soon, where I will be a whole 4 years older than you my gluathione stores are obviously completely shot to pieces. Thanks for this.

  2. I'm laughing quite hard at the 'losing your glow' lines. Thank you Sweet Baby Jesus indeed.

    This looks interesting.

  3. Hot flushes and losing your glow, I can't say I'm looking forward to this! As a completely random aside, I found shampoo and conditioner for enhancing grey hair in my Mum's bathroom. I don't know how much longer I have until that becomes a feature in my life. Mother Nature is very rude indeed!

    1. I've been grey since I was 19! Shut up woman! :)

  4. This serum made me glow AND gave me a zit. What does Sweet Baby Jesus have to say about that, huh?

  5. and gentelman :) ive used it too and it did seem to do some very nice things to my face. But to be honest ive tried so many products and the one range that just makes an incredible difference to my face is Cosmedix. By the way im a man 28 yrs old had an accident and had 38 operations and had my face rebuilt so i have a nice new face now. ive had Sculptra, Voluma, my Nose rebuilt and my cheeks and i have a nice new face to look at. i went on a quest to find out how to rebuild my skin and ive tried it all :)
