We had the pleasure of trying the new SKIN Functional Daily Moisturiser so here’s the low-down on what happened

Firstly, we just have to mention that it was great to try a product that is proudly South African and gives great results.

The magical ingredient

The SKIN Functional Daily Moisturiser’s magical ingredient is Black Ginseng.

Does the 5% Black Ginseng and ATP Complex combination work?

The combination of 5% Black Ginseng and ATP Complex has been developed to be a powerful anti-oxidant. This enhances skin hydration by allowing more water to be captured in the skin.

Furthermore, the Black Ginseng boosts collagen which in turn enhances collagen production in the skin. This causes natural growth of cells to rebuild skin.

The ATP complex helps by increasing the functioning of cells and it’s needed because we produce less of the ATP Complex as we age.

Did it work for me?

I have acne-prone skin that is also oily, so most moisturisers I tried usually added to the oiliness. I loved how this moisturiser was not oily, but rather had a velvety feel that my skin really loved. I applied it twice a day after applying my serum. My skin looked healthier and hydrated and I think it’s a great product to use all year round.

The SKIN Functional Daily Moisturiser is now available for purchase at or online retailers and retails for R290.00 for a 50ml tube.
