TGIF, beauty nerds! As most of you know (due to my incessant whining haha), I had a crazy busy semester at university. It was one of the most stressful three months I’ve had to date! But now that that’s all over, I’m just enjoying my month-long semester break working on Beauty Nerd By Night and of course, giving myself some me time. Obviously, with me-times, there has to be some pampering right? So I’ve been using a tonne of new skincare and body products which I’m so excited to show you guys. To kick it off, today I’ll be talking about the MAXCLINIC NTS Meso Change Roller Program.
What Is It?
Yeah, I know. MAXCLINIC NTS Meso Change Roller is a pretty weird name that does not sound like skincare at all. But it’s actually a Korean beauty product (which I’m obsessed with, here’s 16 of the best Korean beauty products for you to obsess over too. You’re welcome! ;)) month-long program to help moisturise and firm the skin, leaving you with glowy, elastic skin. In the kit, you get four of the MAXCLINIC Deep & Deeper Meso Change Ampoule, a roller handle, and four disposable Hyaluronic Meso Change Rollers, which uses the microneedling technique to help skincare products absorb into the skin effectively.
How Does It Work?
How it works is, you attach a disposable Hyaluronic Meso Change Roller onto the golden roller handle. Then, after applying the Deep & Deeper Meso Change Ampoule (or any other skincare ampoule of your liking), you use the Meso Change Roller and roll it on your face. What this does is, with any other microneedling treatment, it creates hundreds of micro-punctures on the top layer of your skin so that the product can be easily absorbed. It sounds really scary and painful (I mean, we’re talking about freaking punctures on the skin), but I promise you, it really isn’t. It doesn’t harm your skin, it doesn’t hurt, and it’s not scary at all. If anything, it’s pretty relaxing.
MAXCLINIC Deep & Deeper Meso Change Ampoule
An ampoule is a concentrated serum, usually specifically targeted to one or two skin concerns. In this case, the Deep & Deeper Meso Change Ampoule targets dehydration and ageing skin. It helps to moisturise and firm the skin, leaving you with glowy, elastic skin. This ampoule is used daily, after cleansing and toning the face to ensure proper absorption. The formula of this is a watery gel texture that absorbs immediately into the skin upon application. Also, a little bit goes a loooong way and one tiny tube of this ampoule lasts about a week with daily use. Even when you’re not using the microneedling roller, you can still apply this as part of your serum step in your skincare routine.
MAXCLINIC Hyaluronic Meso Change Roller
This kit comes with a super gorgeous gold roller handle and four Hyaluronic Meso Change Rollers. The roller handle looks very luxurious, but it’s actually made of plastic so it doesn’t feel as luxurious as it looks. Each Hyaluronic Meso Change Roller can only be used once and should be disposed of after. This month-long program includes four Hyaluronic Meso Change Roller, used once a week. Each of the Meso Change Rollers is packaged individually for hygiene purposes. All you have to do is fix the roller to the handle, take off the cap and you’re ready to use!
So this is how the MAXCLINIC NTS Meso Change Roller looks like attached to the roller handle. As you can see from the close-up, the Meso Change Roller has tiny little “needles” that roll over the skin to open up tiny little punctures for better product absorption, using the microneedling technique.
How Did It Go?
On a certain day each week (I chose Sunday, because Sunday = Lazy, Pamper Day), I use this in my nighttime skincare routine, right after cleansing and toning my skin. This was my very first time trying out microneedling so when I first used the roller, I was a little taken aback by it. If you’ve never tried microneedling before, you will definitely feel a “sharp” feeling when you’re rolling it on your face. It’s not harsh or painful by any means, it’s just something that you will definitely notice. Once you’re used to it, it’s actually very relaxing – almost feels like you’re getting a facial treatment done!
After using this program, I really enjoyed the entire kit. The ampoule isn’t sticky and absorbs right into my skin. It’s very lightweight and didn’t break me out (which is good, because my acne-prone skin is very sensitive and breaks out if I use anything too oily) at all. It has hydrated and definitely increased the elasticity of my skin. My favourite part, though, definitely has to be the rolling! I feel that it has really helped the products I put on before and after rolling, to really absorb into my skin so that they are more effective.
You can buy the MAXCLINIC NTS Meso Change Roller Program on Amazon for $179.99
If you’re looking for a good hydrating and firming skincare kit to try, I would highly suggest this MAXCLINIC NTS Meso Change Roller Program. If you’ve never tried microneedling before, I think this is a good way to dip your toes in the water to get a feel of how it is.
