Love the exfoliant!!!! I use it every evening, and sometimes in the morning, and this really makes sure I won't have any pimples. Also really loving the ingredient list!! Only mild ingredients that calm your skin, and this doesnt irritate at all. It is kind of sticky/shiny, so I recommend to wear it only in the evening.. but then again I use a lot of it, and if you would use only a little ammount it will sink in the skin and dissapear.

I've been using this (the one with 1% salicylic acid) on and off for nearly three weeks and I'm still unsure if I like it. The first week I used it every other day at night. I broke out all over my cheeks (I haven't had breakouts this bad for years). I read that my skin was probably purging, so I kept using it. Just when my breakout started to clear up, I did something stupid: I sat in the sun unprotected. I got a rash all over my chin, neck and part of my chest (I didn't even put the exfoliant on my neck and chest). I stopped using the exfoliant to let the rash go away, which took about a week. I began using it again two days ago. Hopefully the breakouts won't start all over. If not I will continue using the product as I've heard great things about it and it was rather expensive.
One more thing I definitely don't like about this product is that it leaves a very sticky film on top of my skin. This is still acceptable at night but makes it impossible for me to ever use the exfoliant at day time :-/

My skintype is oily, sensitve, acne prone and seb. dermatitis prone.

I have tried BHA products from Paula's Choice before this and my skin didn't like them at all, so I was a little scared to start with a BHA again. But this product is great, my skin became a nice glow, feels softer and pimples disappear faster than normally. My skin is not completely clear yet, but I use it only for a month now, so I hope it will improve a little bit more. I use it every other night.
Compared to the Paula's Choice this is much more gentle, doesn't dry out my skin and has a lot of anti-oxidants and anti-irritants in it.

I always try to avoid superlatives as much as possible. After all, I might think that I like a product one day, only to find serious flaws weeks or months later. Uncover Skincare however, is something else! I can confidently say that I officially have found my HG skincare line.


I didn't think I would ever use 'holy grail' here on MUA, since I think there's often room for improvement. I am so very impressed with this skincare line though. I feel like one of these Tell Sell girls raving about a product on TV, with the exception that this product line by Jetske Ultee actually works miracles.


Ultee is a researcher and doctor, she's the supervisor of the 'skin department' of a Dutch private clinique. She's also on a crusade - in Dutch newspapers, magazines and on her blog - against the tons of cosmetic products that blurt out false promises and market ridiculous ingredients. As an expert, she explains that these ingredients are often added in ridiculously marginal dosages that will do zero to help improve your skin , or worse, too many of these products - yes even the expensive brands - consist of downright harmful ingredients. Frustrated with these products, she decided to develop her own skincare line.


What's so different about her products? She has put her list of ingredients together based on the latest research and she made sure to add high dosages of these ingredients. On her website, she explains clearly WHY she uses these ingredients, in WHAT dosages and what they are supposed to DO (and believe me; they do!). Basically the active ingredients are pretty much the only ingredients her products consist of, which, if you ask me, is so refreshing. She tried to stay clear of perfume, pre- and conservatives and other skin aging or irritating ingredients as much as possible. Therefore it's all the more surprising that her products smell delicious, a soft fresh fragrance, as opposed to the annoyingly present fragrances in most other brands I tried.


To come to the point, I've tried numerous products in an attempt to get rid of my restless skin. I've been dealing with both hormonal (around my period) and food/lack of sleep/stress related breakouts for years. I tried multiple scrubs and creams with salicylic acid, zinc or tea tree oil, I tried the infamous Estee Lauder Repair Wear and multiple other brands, both expensive and drugstore ones. Mind you, not necessarily to get rid of impurities, also for overall more beautiful looking skin. Although I sometimes liked to pretend that they did (especially the expensive ones such as the EL serum) nothing actually worked.


Uncover Skincare does work! It's scary how I now realize that my life in a way revolved around my 'bad skin'. For example, I always tried to plan fun activities on good days, knowing that I would feel insecure going in public on bad days.


Now that Uncover Skincare is my new skincare regime, this finally is no longer an issue. I spray the Toner - fresh watery texture, neither drying or oily - on my face before applying and after removing my make up. I use the moisturizer on the dryer areas, including my eye area, since this moisturizer is so mild that it's not irritating to the eyes at all.


The exfoliant might be my favourite product of the bunch! I apply a thin layer on my face and neck before going to bed and I wake up with beautiful, radiant skin, I need to resist staring in the mirror every morning like some self absorbed barbie doll. I've been using these products for three months now and I have not had a break out ever since. I'm dead serious (I must add that during that same period I also cut back on many refined sugars and dairy products, especially cheese).


Still, it's perfectly obvious that Uncover Skincare deserves a lot of credit. My only regret is that I didn't find out about this product that really delivers sooner. It would've saved me so much money spent on false marketing promises.
