After some exciting days spent in the studio filming some new videos with professional skincare brand SkinCeuticals, we've decided to take you behind-the-scenes for a sneak peak at our exclusive shoot!

SkinCeuticals are one of our favorite skincare brands at SkinStore, in which they provide a variety of advanced skincare products entirely backed by science. As part of our SkinStore and SkinCeuticals collaboration, we asked the brand to provide three exclusive video tutorials to help inform and educate our customers on their key products across the range.

As well as exploring the hero products, we also wanted to discover a selection of treatments for various skin concerns, and identify exactly what's on trend at SkinCeuticals.


To paint the picture, we locked ourselves away in the white lit modern filming studio - the perfect location for our videos. The set-up consisted of a beautiful white dressing-table with a bulb-lit mirror-frame, a vase filled with gorgeous lilies, vanilla-scented candles and a whole lot of luxury SkinCeuticals' finest range.

Filming Tutorials with SkinCeuticals

Throughout the day, we managed to get 3 filming tutorials from the lovely Nicole Akers who is SkinCeuticals’ AVP Education & Development brand representative. As we wanted to provide our customers with what are really concerned about, and can take information away from, we rounded up 3 key topics:

  • AM to PM Skincare Treatment Plans
  • How To Get Your Glow On
  • Prevention, Correction & Protection.

The video crew focused on setting up the scenes and ambience, along with the gorgeous props, whilst our dream-to-work-with beauty blogger Holly played model for Nicole.

Skincare Tips from Nicole Akers, AVP Education & Development

We had a brief Question & Answer session with Nicole in between filming and the most incredible quotes were spontaneously recommended for daily skincare tips, of which we will also be sharing on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels.

Stay tuned for the new and exciting product launches which will be released in 2017 and for now, enjoy our recent Q&A below...

Q Nicole, what is the most important product for protecting your skin all year around?
If you can see the sun, the sun can see you. The most important step you can take in your skincare regime is daily application of sunscreen and re-application throughout the day. The Physical Fusion SPF has become my holy grail. [product_display id="1"]
Q When is 'Prevention' in the SkinCeuticals skincare routine most important? (This was in response to our first film tutorial which covered the theme of prevention for your skincare routine).
Prevention is most important AM to PM.
Q Your second tutorial explores how to get glowing skin, how would you summarize the Hydrating B5 Gel discussed?
Hydrating B5 Gel is like a having a glass of water for your skin. [product_display id="2"]
Q Again with a focus on the Hydrating B5 Gel, how would you describe the Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2?
Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 and Hydrating B5 Gel are the milk and water to your everyday needs.
Q There’s been a lot of discussion around the SkinCeuticals skin correctors, how would you describe one’s skincare needs?
Skin is unique and correction to the skin should be customized. I love our A.G.E. Interrupter and Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 correctors - you can select and correct with the A.G.E. Interrupter and the Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 skin correctors. [product_display id="3"] [product_display id="4"]
Q Why would you use SkinCeuticals’ prevention AND correction products?
Well it’s like drinking your juice in the day, and your wine at night. The juice is the C E Ferulic (Prevents & Corrects): [product_display id="5"] Wine is Resveratrol B E (Prevents & Corrects): [product_display id="6"] That’s why I say start your day with OJ, and finish with a glass of wine.
Q How would you control inflammation of skin?
Our skin is constantly receiving inflammatory responses. Control your inflammation with a well-balanced treatment plan: Prevent, Correct, Protect.
Q Any last comments about SkinCeuticals?
Control your Destiny. Make sure your skin’s future is both tight and bright, with prevention, correction and protection. And remember, healthy skin is beautiful skin.
