Mirror Survey Deems Medik8 Hydrator a Delight to Use

Medik8 Hydr8™ Day tops the Mirror’s survey for the best cream to fight off the first signs of ageing.

London, United Kingdom, April 18, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The Mirror’s Celebs on Sunday searched for the best beauty creams that defend against the initial signs of ageing, the testers were in their 20s and 30s and had specific criteria to look for amongst the contenders. The primary objectives were to find products that prevent the skin losing luminosity and to maintain a youthful appearance for as long as possible, yet still shielding from future damage that can result in ageing of the complexion.

Medik8’s Hydr8™ Day deservedly triumphed in the category, beating a host of renowned names to the winning post. What set the product apart from the rest was its light melting texture, making it easy to apply and not only hydrating but assisting with smoothing and brightening the skin. The fresh feel of the product was an essential element for success, so as not to overload the skin and leave unwanted residue like many traditional anti-ageing moisturisers. One tester said the product was a ‘wonder cream’ that felt like ‘applying new skin’. The Hydr8™ Day was found to improve the radiance and tone of the skin, making it so supple that a rapid visible difference could be seen. Christine Bishop from Essex commented: ‘After just a few days I noticed I had more hydrated, baby-soft skin and brighter skin tone.’

Hydr8™ Day is a formula of advanced clinically tested ingredients designed to provide cellular protection and hydration, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reducing the visible signs of ageing. Inclusion of the patented Pre-SPF® complex (Ectoin) separates Medik8 from its competitors; this natural bacterial substance holds strong DNA and has unique cell membrane protection properties. Moisture Magnets™ are a blend of humectants that aid in retaining moisture, consequently increasing the level of hydration significantly. The refreshing quality found by the users comes from the delicate base of the product, avoiding heavy formulas in favour of drawing external moisture to the skin. This is indicative in the results shown by the survey, and is further exemplified by the testers observing the wonderful texture of their skin. Panax Ginseng and Centella Asiatica are botanical extracts that assist with wound healing, fight oxidation and also ensure a rejuvenating effect on application.

The Hydr8™ Day moisturiser has an RRP of £49.00 and comes in two varieties for normal/dry and normal/oily skin, use is enhanced when incorporated into the Medik8 regime of cleanse, prevent, correct and hydrate. Medik8 are a pioneering green cosmeceuticals company, specialising in products for sensitive skin whilst still catering for specific skin types.
