It has now been over two weeks since I visited Clare at Beauty On Latrobe and had an amazing #MamaTime taking care of my skin AND my soul (read about it here). I have been diligent with using my new Ultraceuticals skin care regime and my skin feels amazing!
Today’s I am going to give you information and review of each product that I have been using, and tell you about the amazing skin transformation plan #RVR90 that is coming to Beauty On Latrobe next month!
What I love about Ultraceuticals is that it is Australian Made and Owned, do not test on animals, and do not contain harsh chemicals, propylene glycol, parabens, synthetic dyes or synthetic fragrances. They are also well recognised in the beauty industry as a leader in developing award-winning breakthrough cosmeceutical skincare products… so you are getting a lot of bang for your buck results-wise.
Ultra Balancing Gel Cleanser
What Ultraceuticals Say: This light lathering, non-stripping gel cleanser is formulated to thoroughly cleanse, remove impurities and makeup without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance. A powerful blend of Aloe Vera, Cucumber and Oat Kernel Extracts help to condition and soothe the skin while gently washing away surface oil and daily residue. This cleanser perfect for Oily to Normal skins refreshes, reinvigorates and leaves the skin perfectly balanced.
What I Say: This cleanser is a gorgeous, creamy lathering cleanser that gets rid of all my makeup in two cleanses (I always double cleanse at night, as should you!). My skin feels lovely and soft afterwards, not stripped, and it has a lovely light and fresh scent. It also was the Instyle Winner of 2016 for Best Beauty Buys.

Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF 50+
What Ultraceuticals Say: This broad spectrum SPF 50+ daily moisturiser (free of nanoparticles) offers triple protection for normal, dry or oily skin, especially skin that is sensitive or prone to sun intolerance. This light-weight fast absorbing, hydrating formula protects from harmful UVA & UVB rays to help reduce the signs of premature skin ageing. It delivers a vital blend of moisturising ingredients: Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol and Niacinamide to support the skin’s lipid barrier function without clogging the pores or leaving an oily residue. When used daily as directed this skin anti-ageing must-have works to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven texture and loss of firmness, leaving the skin looking more youthful and radiant. This broad spectrum sun cream SPF 50+may assist in preventing solar keratosis, sun spots and reducing the risk of some skin cancers. Paraben Free. Synthetic Fragrance Free.
What I Say: I will readily admit that even as a fully trained Beauty therapist, sunscreens scare me. As someone with extremely oily skin (that’s just my skin type and no matter what products I use, treatments I receive or how old I get… the oil is staying!) I find most sunscreen products too heavy and clogging on my skin. The same can’t be said for this incredible lightweight moisturiser though, while it goes on shiny it rapidly it rapidly absorbs and I can pop my BB Cream or Mineral Foundation over the top straight away.

Ultimate B2 Hydrating Serum
What Ultraceuticals Say: This moisture enhancing serum utilises the humectant and emollient moisturising power of Vitamin B5 (Panthenol) with the lipid barrier strengthening power of Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) to synergistically draw moisture to the skin, keep it there and provide soft emolliency. Ultimate B2 Hydrating Serum also contains Hyaluronic Acid to synergistically help restore vital moisture balance and provide long-lasting hydration.
What I Say: I pop this serum on under my daily moisturiser every morning for a boost of hydration, because even though my skin is oily, it is also dehydrated (dehydration = water loss, dryness = oil loss). I have definitely felt a difference in the ‘plumpness’ of my skin, it is already a lot more hydrated. This serum is from the new Ultra MD range which is available at Beauty On Latrobe, Clare and her team were hand selected by Dr Heber to be the first salon to stock Ultra MD so you know these girls know what they’re doing!
$105.00 | 30mL
Even Skintone Serum
What Ultraceuticals Say: Ultraceuticals Star Performer, Even Skintone Serum now comes with a new and improved formula to give even better results. This enhanced formula gives you a visibly brighter, smoother and more refined complexion. Regular use of just 2-3 drops each application will dramatically diminish the look of discolouration and pigmentation and reveal a brighter, smoother, strengthened and clarified complexion and will enhance the benefits of all other products which follow.
What I Say: Whilst Clare wanted me to settle down on my exfoliating, she also heard me when I said that enlarged pores and skin tone were a concern to me. So after I promised to only manually exfoliate (manual exfoliation means with a scrub) 1-2 times a week, Clare let me have this serum which contains AHA and BHA which are chemical exfoliants (this means the active ingredients exfoliate the skin without a scrub). I was concerned that dropping my manual exfoliation would mean I wouldn’t be as happy with my skin texture, however my skin is soft, supple and smooth thanks to this gorgeous serum. I apply at night before my night cream.
$112.00 | 30mL
Ultra Rich Moisturiser Cream
What Ultraceuticals Say: New Ultra Rich Moisturiser Cream contains our unique AMCTM an Advanced Moisturising Complex, Ceramides and a cocktail of potent peptides to intensely nourish, repair and hydrate thirsty skin. Provides all day intense hydration for instantly smoother and plumper skin.
What I Say:
$99.00 | 50mL
Ultra Derma Needling System
What Ultraceuticals Say: Skin needling is the ultimate form of skin rejuvenation. • Clinically tested to reﬁne skin texture, reduces appearance of acne scarring and stretch marks. • Less downtime compared to Laser and some peels. • The skin needling system is reﬁned enough for use around all facial contours, including delicate areas such as under the eyelids. • Excellent for most skin types, compatible with all Fitzpatrick skin classiﬁcations.
What I Say: I didn’t train in Skin Needling, so I was a bit scared of sticking needles into my skin. Which of course, is not what happens. Surprisingly comfortable, with little redness or discomfort afterwards, I’ve been needling once a week so far and loving it. By causing micro-damage to the skin, the skin is forced to regenerate and heal itself with the production of new skin cells and collagen. Which for me personally means anti-aging and smaller pores. Happy days!
