The products are all boxed in vintage pink. The bottles of serums, gold trimmed, look so girly on your dressing table, yet MZ Skin is a doctor skin care, feminine and powerful. Remember those two words throughout using it. Whatever the science, the philosophy is womanliness, created by Dr Maryam Zamani. I met Dr Maryam, a super respected Ocuplastic surgeon at a lovely breakfast about a year ago. Light, funny and super high powered, she specialises in surgical and non-surgical facial aesthetic procedures at the Cadogan Clinic in London.

MZ Skin

A Doctor Skincare range can often seem alien and look too clinical, another skin care range in a market already flooded. Despite all of this, MZ Skin is superb and I’m obsessed with it. Her science is reveal, enhance, protect.  Reveal being all about brightening and illuminating the skin and iridescent pigments enhance is about stem cells, nurture and nourish while lifting occurs via Elastin and Collagen support. And protect is about skins lipid barrier being protected from UVA and UVB.

Dr Maryam knows her science but her products are beyond the sum of her parts.  It’s better than applying science to your face. You’re applying nurture, luxury.  The cleanser for instance doubles up as a mask. It feels cool and exciting on the skin. It feels a sensory experience. It’s hydrating and it’s dermabrasing at the same time. Imagine those two things together.  You can use it as a daily cleanser and it polishes off dead skin cells, refines pores and boosts cellular renewal.  It doesn’t just clean the skin, it clarifies the skin tone. It spectacularly evens out the face and when used as a mask it does all this with more intensity.  It uses papaya fruit enzyme that brightens and exfoliates the skin.  Papaya is an enzyme that’s been used in many products and it’s always left my face red and itchy.  This leaves the face like cashmere.

The Lift and Lustre Golden Elixir is the serum of all serums. Rich in hyaluronic acid it firms and protects collagen and boosts Elastin production.  It gets going with its essential amino acids to protect the skin from lifestyle stresses that can cause premature ageing.  That’s the science.  When you put this golden lustrous serum on your face, neck and décolletage you can feel it dramatically tightening and bringing a radiance to the skin.

It’s a facial in a tiny bottle. My other must have product is the Golden Eye eye mask.  It’s a little eye mask of pure gold just for the eyes.  It penetrates deep down into the skin’s basal layer, helping repair skin cells, protect them from free radicals and intensify moisturation.  Basically you put the solid, shiny golden pads under your eyes and they provide immediate results.  These are the must have party season dark circle eliminator. Any puffiness instantly disappears while at the same time it’s dealing with fine lines and wrinkles. They’re gentle, juicy, never greasy and the results are spectacular.

These products are luxury and not cheap but they are absolutely worth it.  I try a great deal of skin care products and of course I have my favourites but I’ve never found radiance in a bottle like this Lift and Lustre Serum.  I’ve never found a cleanser that alone gives you the effect of having had a 90 minute facial.  If you can only afford one product get the cleanser and get someone to gift you a Golden Eye.  It’s not about having youth restored, it’s having a radiance restored that usually comes from within. You can be as stressed as you like and look like you’ve just had a month’s holiday.
