“MZ Skin is inspired by all the women I have met and treated. It is a doctor-led brand made for women by a woman.” – Dr. Maryam Zamani
Who’s better to understand a woman’s skin needs and challenges than a woman! MZ Skin was created by Dr. Maryam Zamani, a highly respected Oculoplastic Surgeon and leading Facial Aesthetics Doctor. She spotted a need for high performance skincare with a beautiful sensory experience. Around 6 weeks ago, I was introduced to some MZ Skin best sellers and new launches; today I’m excited to share my experience with you.
The products are all boxed in vintage pink. Serums and creams are housed in luxurious gold packaging or gold trims; all looks super pretty and opulent.
Good to know
MZ SKIN formulations are free from parabens, silicones, mineral oil, GM ingredients, petrolatum, sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), phthalates and petro-chemicals.
BRIGHTEN & PERFECT 10% Vitamin C Corrective Serum 30ml
The benefits of Vitamin C in skincare has been well documented. When added to your daily routine, vitamin C provides a range of benefits, from evening out your skin tone, shielding skin from environmental aggressors, boosting collagen production and keeping your skin looking younger, longer!
I have tried a fair few vitamin C serums and I took a liking for MZ Skin Vitamin C Corrective Serum immediately. I was hooked pretty quickly!
This fast acting serum combines a potent complex of actives and an optimal dosage of 10% stabilised Vitamin C.
- Vitamin C: Powerful antioxidant to reduce free radical damage. Stimulates collagen and elastin production and revitalises cell growth.
- Peptides: Clinically proven to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots. Corrects skin tone and reduces imperfections.
- Azelaic Acid: Inhibits formation of the Trysrosinase enzyme which helps to control melanin production to reduce pigmentation and brighten the skin.
- Sodium Hyaluronate: Increases moisture retention and reduces trans-epidermal moisture loss.
With MZ Skin vitamin C serum, you will experience the elegant silky gel-like texture, totally luxurious! The cream is easily absorbed and leaves such a smooth canvas behind. I didn’t experience any stinging (I have incorporated Vit C serums in my skincare routine for a good few years). My subsequent serums layer well on top. There is a fragrance to the serum that dissipates quickly.
After 6 weeks of trying the serum out, I can definitely see an improvement in my skin health; brighter complexion, more even skin tone and bouncier skin.
REPLENISH & RESTORE Placenta & Stem Cell Night Recovery Mask 30ml
This newly launched lush night mask combines groundbreaking science with innovative formulations to nourish, detoxify, and brighten skin. Infused with nutrient-rich placenta and phyto stem cells, Replenish & Restore Placenta & Stem Cell Night Recovery Mask repairs the complexion and stimulates growth factors to boost collagen and elastin.
This was my first introduction to skincare that contains ovine placenta. However, I have heard about placentophagy, eating one’s own placenta, and the health benefits that it could bring such as combatting fatigue, pain relief and providing nutrition. I would imagine skincare with placenta might not be something that everyone would be drawn to. True to my passion for skincare and beauty, I was intrigued to try the unique mask out.
Replenish & Restore Placenta & Stem Cell Night Recovery Mask contains a combination of 13 active ingredients, including ovine placenta and plant-based stem cells, is designed to work at a cellular level to hydrate and firm the skin and restore a healthy glow.
- PHYTO STEM CELLS: Derived from plantain to rebuild and strengthen the skin.
- KAHAI NUT OIL: Nourishes, softens and moisturises.
- HYALURONIC ACID: Delivers moisture to skin and increases moisture retention.
- OVINE PLACENTA: Stimulates growth factors to boost collagen and elastin, repairing skin
How to apply
Unlike traditional wash-off masks, you simply massage a small amount over your face at night after cleansing and leave the powerful formula to do its work while you sleep.
The mask has an elegant, creamy texture that spreads out on my skin effortlessly. It doesn’t feel thick or heavy on and I love that it is non-greasy. There is a faint, pleasant jasmine scent which dissipates quickly upon application.
The mask is the last thing I apply after retinoid and other serums. Upon applying the mask, I experience immediate soothing and calming effect. The next morning, I wake up with a smoother, brightened and healthy complexion. Overall, my skin feels and looks firmer, bouncier. My skin doesn’t feel greasy or clogged up. After 3 continuous weeks of use, I’m super impressed!
Combination of groundbreaking skincare and luxury at its best! My skin positively looks firmer, brighter and glowy! Who can say NO to that!
You can find MZ Skin at Harrods, Net-a-Porter and MZ Skin.
