Skincare diaries - Philippa’s microneedle journey

If you want to try our Plump Up Microneedle but feel a little uneasy, take inspiration from Philippa’s journey…

Philippa's routine

Age: 39

Skin type: Normal

Makeup artist and busy mum Philippa felt self-conscious of her enlarged pores and fine lines, so she began her microneedling journey – here’s how she got on…

Step 1: Plump Up Microneedle

“I always start with a clean face,” says Philippa. You can guarantee a thoroughly clean complexion by double cleansing to remove all traces of dirt, SPF and makeup – we recommend using Be Your Best Enzyme Balm Cleanser and Better Off AHA/PHA Gel Cleanse.

Then comes the fun part – microneedling. Holding her microneedle securely for stability, Philippa gently rolls it onto her skin in feathering motions. “It’s really important to make sure you go in small sections”, she says. “I’m not applying much pressure at all. It’s very, very light.” She microneedles around her whole face, making sure to avoid more delicate areas where her skin is thinner, such as around the eyes.

Immediately after, Philippa sprays her microneedle with the cleaning spray and pops it back into the cap to keep it safe and clean.

Step 2: Plump Up Peptide+ HA Serum

Next up, Philippa heads in with Plump Up, our advanced peptide and hyaluronic acid serum, and massages it gently into her skin. The imperceptible microchannels created while microneedling allow Plump Up to dive deeper into the skin and work even harder.

After 4 weeks…

Not only did Philippa enjoy her microneedling experience (including some very well-deserved me-time alone in the bathroom), but she reaped the rewards with her skin. “I have a great glow to the complexion,” she says. “Instead of the serum sitting on the skin, it’s actually working a lot harder and penetrating deeper into the complexion. Big fan!”
