NEW: Gilda Liljeblad Skincare
Let’s start the year with something new to your Nerd Network store – Gilda Liljeblad Skincare. This Swedish active skincare range is named after its founder, skin expert Gilda Liljeblad, who has educated Sweden’s best aestheticians since 1993 and has created professional skincare products since 1988.
Gilda Liljeblad is about being your best self, and believes in healthy, beautiful skin benefiting our confidence and well-being. In terms of formulas, Gilda Liljeblad are huge fans of AHAs, vitamin A and microencapsulated ingredients – what's that, you ask? That’s when ingredients are encapsulated to ensure that they are kept fresh and effective, for example, vitamins. We stock all 11 products from the range, and we’re going to talk you through some of our favourites...
Gilda Liljeblad Activating AHA Serum (€79.90)
We love a good AHA serum, especially to tackle lines, wrinkles and dullness in the skin. This contains glycolic acid, lactic acid from blueberries, AHAs from orange and lemon extracts and Argireline®, a peptide proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and in the forehead area!
This serum is also ideal for blackhead-prone and oily hoomans, as the combo of alpha-hydroxy acids works to reduce sebum production and gently remove dead skin cells.
This serum brightens, helps to soften wrinkles and improves skin elasticity.
Use it once a week, and slowly build up usage!
Gilda Liljeblad Energising Vitamin C Serum (€79.90)
L-ascorbic acid, or pure vitamin C, is what to go to for potent brightening, upping that collagen and antioxidant protection. This serum is just that, no funny business – l-ascorbic acid, ferulic acid and propanediol. Just 3 ingredients. Ferulic acid is an antioxidant that can double the effects of vitamin C, so this is a very clever formula.
This serum is ideal for those who are at their wit’s end with pigmentation and want to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Use this in the AM so that your vitamin C can protect you all day long – and don’t be alarmed if you feel warmth, that’s just the vitamin C being activated.
Gilda Liljeblad Fortifying Barrier Cream (€49.90)
You know we’re all about that barrier – keep it as healthy as possible, and your skin will follow suit. Your barrier is integral to how your skin maintains moisture, so when it’s intact and strong, your skin will be better hydrated.
This cream contains niacinamide (our favourite B vitamin), which works to strengthen the barrier and brighten, shea butter to nourish, glycerin to bind water in the skin, apricot oil which helps to relieve sensitive or irritated skin and squalane, a hydrating antioxidant.
If you are a very, very dry-skinned hooman you’ll adore this – if you are oily-skinned or blemish-prone, we’d recommend that you give it a miss!
Gilda Liljeblad Regenerating AHA Mask (€49.90)
No Sunday facial night is complete without an exfoliating acid mask, and this one steps up to the plate swinging. With glycolic acid combined with more glycolic acid from sugarcane, lactic acid from blueberries, AHAs from lemon and orange, hydrating glycerin and soothing chamomile extract, this mask works to boost skin cell renewal to help with pigmentation, lines, firming, smoothness and stopping spots in their tracks.
Apply an even layer 2 to 3 times a week post-cleansing, leave on for a maximum of 5 minutes during first use and slowly up to 10 minutes after continued use!
