I have been using SKIN Functional products for over two months. I started using the products in November. With Skincare products I like to use the products for prolonged period of time, so that I can write a more informed and honest review. When you switch to new skincare products, you may experience a reaction as it isn’t used to certain ingredients. This is why I like to use it for a while before I write a post.

I am completely old on the SKIN Functional skincare products. I have been using the Liquid Moisturiser and the Anti-ageing Complex. I am in my mid 30’s and need to step up my skincare game, especially in the area preventing signs of aging. Investing in good quality skincare, that works with your skincare requirements is incredibly important.

My biggest skincare concerns are fine lines around my mouth and crows feet by my eyes. Generally I am blessed with good skin – I would like to keep it that way. I don’t wear a lot of makeup for everyday activities, usually reserving makeup for fancy events. I prefer to keep my skin looking good and healthy as its my canvas. SKIN Functional really helped me feel confident in my own skin and take preventative care of my skin.

It is best to prevent skin damage and take preventative action towards ageing. SKIN Functional gave me the tools and know how.

Made in South Africa, Not tested on animals and budget friendly.

Products used:

I used the Liquid Moisturiser 2% Ceramide +GABA and Anti-Aging Complex with Peptides +Cu Complex. These two products worked perfectly with my existing skincare routine . After a long winter my skin really needed the help.

Skin Functional Liquid Moisturiser (Price: R270.00)

Suitable for most skin types. Say goodbye to : Dehydration, crepey skin and fine lines. This moisturiser rehydrated my skin so it no longer felt tight.

Results of using this product is smoother hydrated skin due to the Epidermal lipid replacement.

I found this moisturiser easy to work into my skincare routine. I like moisturisers that can be used during the day and as a night cream.


Replaces depleted ceramides to preserve the skin’s protective layer which prevents the loss of moisture, shields the skin from environmental aggressors and fights against premature ageing.


Ceramides make up 50% of the skin’s lipid content and therefore form a major part of the protective layer of the skin which can deplete with age, over exfoliation and environmental aggressions. This depletion of ceramides presents as dry, flaky, sensitive skin. 2% Ceramide + GABA replaces depleted ceramides in the skin for optimal barrier protection.


Ceramides are produced naturally by the skin, however they become depleted over time as we age. Specifically, after age 20, the body produces fewer ceramides at a loss of one percent per year. Maintaining ceramide levels in the skin plays an essential role in managing dryness, dehydration and premature signs of ageing.

Skin Functional – Anti-Aging Complex with Peptides +Cu Complex ( R550.00 for 30ml)

I really enjoyed using this product. I liked how it made my skin feel while using it. I did notice a difference in my fine lines around my mouth and crows feet.

Use this for a younger looking you!

The handy dropper makes sure that you use just enough product and don’t waste any. I will be buying this products again. It fitted in perfectly with my existing skincare routine, where I used it before I applied moisturiser.

The area I noticed the biggest difference was my decolletage. This area often gets forgotten about but aside from hands is the first place that skin ageing is noticeable.


A blend of highly effective anti-ageing peptides, that combat the signs of ageing.


A conventional treatment with an unconventional concentration of peptides blended together as one.


Peptide blend, increases the production of collagen and has the ability to assist in restoring damaged skin.

Copper Tripeptide, increases the production of collagen and elastin. Has the ability to promote the production of glycosaminoglycans, while providing powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant benefits.

Final thoughts:

· I would recommend Skin Functional products. They are incredibly well priced skincare products that work.

· I enjoyed using both products and will be buying them to stock up. Using these products gave me confidence to wear less make up during summer. Family photos were taken while we were in the pool and I was not self-conscious of my skin.

· The products fitted into my existing skincare routine, so I didn’t have to buy a entirely new regime of expensive products.

· The products are made in South Africa and not tested on animals ( both important points for me)

· Products are available online form their online store and they deliver.
