Bergman Beauty Care GWP

I am an absolute sucker for GWPs! I just love getting a little extra with my purchase. Well I have just been informed of a great little GWP that is coming up in June. Spend $75 on the Bergman Beauty Care range at Myer Spa Universe counters and you get to choose from the following gift:

  • 15ml Bergman Beauty CareUltra-Light Peptide Moisturising cream, or

  • 15ml Bergman Beauty Care 24 Hour Guard Moisturising Cream

If you are unfamiliar with the brand, Bergman Beauty Care is a skincare range developed by the renowned Bergman Beauty Clinics in the Netherlands. According to the Bergman Beauty Care website, the products are developed in cooperation with scientific specialists and contain many valuable ingredients, offering the most effective solutions without a prescription for most skin types. 

I personally have not used any of the products from the range, but my interest was piqued when I saw that it had been developed by 'scientific specialists' (which I assume are scientists!). The range was developed in the Bergman Clinic - a well renowned private clinic for cosmetic surgery and skin treatments in The Netherlands - when they were getting unsatisfactory results with the skin care ranges already on the market in healing the post-operative scars.

The hero ingredient of the range is Beta Glucan. Beta Glucan is a sugar that has been shown to have a positive effect on the immune system. When applied to wounds it assists the white blood cells in preventing the wound from getting infected, thereby speeding up the wound healing process. The faster a wound heals, the less it scars. Therefore, adding this to a cream should assist in reducing post-operative scars. The range was initially only intended as a post-operative regime for their clients; however, the results were so amazing, many of the clients wanted to continue using the creams at home. Hence, Bergman Beauty Care was started.

The range has now expanded to include more than just Recovery Care. According to their website the moisturising creams contain cell-renewing qualities that retard the skin's ageing process and protect against daily contamination and inner stress. The creams are suitable for all skin types thanks to the preventive action of the ingredients. 

Have any of you tried any products from the Bergman Beauty Care range, and if so, what did you think?
