Skincare brands are like romantic partners: when you find one that treats you right and makes you feel like a million bucks, you want to keep them around. Also like romantic partners, though, skincare brands all try to reel you in by putting their best foot forward so it’s often not until they’re ingrained into your daily routine that you know whether they’re really the right choice.
If you haven’t found The One yet (or if your last The One isn’t the right fit anymore and you need to move on), allow me to set you up on a date with my friend, iS Clinical. This brand truly has a reputation for quality that anyone can appreciate.
About iS Clinical
When it comes to skincare, most people are looking for one of two things: they either want the latest, cutting-edge skincare science or they want holistic, natural ingredients. Instead of forcing you to compromise, iS Clinical brings in the best of both worlds.
The “iS” in the brand’s name stands for “innovative skincare.” Ultimately, their strategy is to source natural botanical ingredients and use advanced, ongoing research to find out how to best unleash those ingredients’ powers. In other words, you have natural ingredients used for the holistic health of your skin but they’re being applied in a highly scientific and innovative way.
Ethics is a core part of iS Clinical’s mission too. For starters, they adhere to high ethical standards while sourcing ingredients, conducting research, and testing their products. Taking it a step further, the brand is deeply committed to its iS Cancer Care program to find cancer research and treatments.
Top iS Clinical Products to Try
Anyone can sound great on paper (much to the dismay of just about everyone who’s tried online dating), but to know if iS Clinical is long-term-commitment-worthy, you need to take it on a few dates first. Start by trying out these cornerstone products.
Active Serum is iS Clinical’s most popular and best-known product, and the reason isn’t a mystery. This unique serum does just about everything you could want for your skin.
It reduces wrinkles and fine lines for a younger look. It evens and brightens your skin tone for a healthy, youthful glow. It even tackles blemishes for a smoother complexion. In other words, for nearly any skincare woe, Active Serum will probably help.
Healthy skin always starts with clean skin but iS Clinical knows that cleansing doesn’t have to involve drying out your skin too. Their answer to this common problem? Honey cleanser.
Unsurprisingly, raw honey is one of the primary ingredients in this mixture of natural wonders. The cleanser combines that honey with papaya enzyme for gentle exfoliation, green tea extract for nourishment, and a host of other hydrating and refreshing ingredients. The result is clean skin with both a warming and moisturizing effect that makes it especially perfect for winter.
Our faces might be the first impressions we make on the world, but we all want soft and comfortable skin everywhere else too. The Body Complex by iS Clinical is here to make that happen.
At its core, Body Complex is a body moisturizer. To make it even more effective, though, it’s infused with antioxidants and essential vitamins to nourish and protect your skin.
There’s a twist to the Body Complex, though: unlike most moisturizers, it adds mild exfoliation to the mix. You’ll get softer, smoother skin with fewer shedding skin cells, all while protecting and fortifying your moisture barrier.
Hydra-Intensive Cooling Masque
We talked about a warming cleanser that will make your winters cozy, but what about those hot summer days when you want nothing more than to stack ice packs on your face and fall asleep? iS Clinical has something for that too: the Hydra-Intensive Cooling Masque.
This mask takes a two-pronged approach. For starters, it infuses deep hydration into your skin, primarily from botanically-sourced hyaluronic acid (the active ingredient in most facial filler injections) to keep it from drying out. Second, it soothes irritated or inflamed skin in a way that will truly make you say “ahhhh” in relief.
For extra nourishment and protection, iS Clinical tossed in some green tea and antioxidants as well. It’s essentially a bouquet of flowers to appease your skin when it’s mad at you.
The lips don’t get nearly as much attention as they should. They might be small compared to the rest of your face, but they make a powerful difference in your appearance and they’re delicate enough that they get uncomfortable very easily. Start giving them more focus with iS Clinical’s Lip Duo.
This product pairing includes the Lip Polish and Youth Lip Elixir. The polish is an exfoliating scrub which also uses botanical butters to further smooth your lips.
The Youth Lip Elixir, on the other hand, is the ultimate lip de-ager. It provides lip-plumping, clock-reversing hydration while also using iS Clinical’s proprietary Extremozymes to give you intense protection against environmental factors that accelerate aging.
Giving iS Clinical a Try
Who doesn’t want to find that special soul mate who gives them a glow every day? I’m not talking about a partner (shout-out to the stunningly single), I’m talking about a skincare brand that brings out the best in your skin. If you haven’t met iS Clinical yet, they’re worth a try.
