#Skincare Saturday | Shills Mandelic Acid*


Happy weekend, guys! Hope you've had a good week, lots of chocolate and at least one lie in? 

I doubt that this hashtag will make it into a regular feature on LoveLaughsLipstick [I'm too erratic with my skin routine, as well as pretty clueless when it comes to products that aren't micellar water or facewipes] but I've declared this Saturday to be  #SkincareSaturday - so today, that's what I'm going to be talking about. I mean, it's the weekend, so what more of an excuse do you need to pamper yourself with some lux lovelies from the skincare cabinet of life? And you're going to want to see this one.

This is Shills' +20% Mandelic Acid* Skin Renew Essence and it's a babe. It rocks a potent blend of ingredients which work to brighten, refine your skin and fade discolouration. Mandelic Acid has been proven to lighten hyper-pigmentation, scars and Melasma by up to 50% in only 4 weeks! 

This product also contains Vitamin E; which works in collaboration with the Mandelic Acid to increase your cell turnover and collagen for a youthful complexion. Shills recommend that you use the product daily, to start seeing results in 14 days.

I originally thought I'd try this product on the battle scars I was left with after my hip surgery, to see if it helped reduce their visibility. But I'll be honest; once I started using it on my face, I loved it so much that this idea kinda fell by the wayside.

As well as smelling proper nice, absorbing quickly and not making my skin pure tacky, Shills' Mandelic Acid has delivered exactly what it said it would, with regards to visibly lessening the effects of scarring. 

I had a little scarring on my right-hand cheekbone from where some delightful late 20s acne decided to spring up last year - but applying this stuff to it nightly [over the past couple of weeks] has dramatically lightened it and made it much less visible. Meaning much less concealer is needed to make me look presentable as a human. #WINNING.

My skin looks younger [and fuller / plumper, somehow?] for using this product and it's much more even too. Traa random patchy bits! But the main thing that's sold it to me is how effectively it has lightened the scarring and discolouration on my face [from spots past.] 

After seeing how effective it is, I'm going to try it on some of my other scars too [I have a few marks left behind by the Psoriasis incident of 2014] to see how it fares. If you have a somewhat patchy skin tone, scarring or hyper-pigmentation on your face, I'd definitely suggest giving this stuff a go.

And don't forget to check out Shills' Black Charcoal Masks too - they're super fun, all over the internet right now and come with a sticker of authenticity; so you know what you're putting into your skin is safe.

Have you tried any of Shills' products yet? Do you have any skincare tips to share on reducing the visibility of scarring and hyper-pigmentation?
