Nurses and Frontline Workers loving the Secret Weapon Serum as a Protective Barrier

Nurses and Frontline Workers loving the Secret Weapon Serum as a Protective Barrier

Here we are again in total LockDown, and we are forever indebted to our NHS staff and Frontline workers who have put their country and job before themselves. 

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we wanted to try our best to support in some way and have offered all NHS and Frontline workers advice and 20% Discount off our Secret Weapon Serums. If you send your Blue Light Card or ID to customercare@katemciverskin.co.uk or DM our Socials and we will send you the code.

There are so many reviews from Nurses, and frontline workers here are just a small sample of them - 



Many nurses have asked for Tips to keep their skin healthy whilst wearing PPE, so many have never had skin issues before COVID.

They have been experiencing abnormally irritated skin, increased breakouts, dryness, and peeling are common skin issues that have been occurring. Those who have struggled with Acne, Rosacea, and other skin conditions previously, the PPE has exacerbated their problems. 

Our advice is to keep to a gentle skincare routine while wearing PPE and Protective Masks, try to use fragrance skincare, avoid using makeup and harsh ingredients, and exfoliating scrubs.

We recommend that you prep your skin with a Serum to create a barrier to protect and moisturise whilst wearing PPE.  

Whilst working a great tip is to cool your skin down when you get the chance by removing your mask when permitted and splashing your face with cool (not very cold) water to reduce the salt excretion from sweating under your mask as it creates a humid environment. Lightly dab your skin dry. Especially carry this out if you have Maskne.

As soon as you arrive home, Double Cleanse your skin and apply your Serum. If you are suffering from dehydrated skin considering using Hyaluronic Kakadu Serum's layer on damp skin to absorb the moisture and repair your skin. If your skin is experiencing severe itching and the break out is becoming very angry, we suggest you consult your pharmacist as you can get over the counter creams. If the pharmacist thinks necessary, you may need to visit the doctor.

Fantastic as always

I can’t fault this trio at all. My skin is the best it’s ever been. Even down to the packaging-it’s so luxurious in my bathroom cabinet to using twice a day. I’m a loyal customer now for last couple of years and take advantage of offers too. Thanks guys!

Everything you need and more!

I highly recommend this product! I used the oil and the balm myself as well as the oil in my makeup kit. It meets all your skin care needs, it’s gentle, it’s kind and norishes.

Best product I’ve used

After having my children my skin took a turn for the worst I almost had acne all over my jaw,it was sore and really knocked my confidence.
After trying countless products I started using the secret weapon serum a few years ago which dramatically changed my skin for the better.
I now use the balm and the hyralronic serum together and I couldn’t recommend them more

It’s just amazing!

Been using this now for about 2yrs and I can honestly say I don’t think I could ever be without it. Nothing compares. It’s really helped even out my skin tone and I’m prone to dark patches. Love it!


I have an autoimmune condition which causes a fleeting butterfly-shaped redness across my nose and cheeks. My skin is also very very sensitive, especially in those parts and dry. I suffer from oiliness which is due to dryness. This serum has really helped. I used the limited at first as I am acne-prone but it was not hydrating enough for me. I use this alongside the hylauronic serum and the balm and I am so happy with the results. My skin isn’t oily, is calm and comfortable. I get the odd spot but I don’t mind those so much, as long as I’m not itchy I’m happy! (Left picture is before I started using this - it’s likely that my rash has faded somewhat due to health fluctuations but the serum has helped it along for sure!)
