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.

Life changing

The secret weapon ltd edition serum has changed my skin and is the first thing that has ever worked for me. I started using in lockdown 1 and seen a huge change in the space of 3 weeks.

I am a teacher and am currently still working in school. The maskne is real and the Kate McIver bottle is empty. I just know that I can't live without this serum now and have learned to never run out! I will continue to recommend this to everyone!

Amazing products!

I suffered with severe acne all the way through my 20’s which knocked my confidence with not only how I looked, but also with anything I applied to my skin. I just felt sure that anything and everything would cause a break out. That’s when I found Kate McIver products and I haven’t looked back since! I now use the full trio of products and my skin has never felt healthier. As my acne was so bad, I did need medications too - but since finishing those, my beautiful Kate McIver products have helped my skin stay healthy, hydrated and the odd spot I do get is a lot less noticeable and clears quicker! I highly recommend! Xxxx

Skin saviour ❤️

I ate nothing but rubbish during the pandemic! And had lots of breakouts and my face was so sore every morning, with spots! It was driving me mad! So I decided to order the secret weapon serum and facecloths. Wow! I’m so glad I did! It’s calmed it down so much! My skin is no longer sore and the spots and after-marks have really reduced after a week! I apply morning and before bed! Love it!! Well worth the money!!

Eczema prone skin

This serum has literally changed my life!!! I can’t believe how amazing it is. I will never not buy this stuff. My skin has always been bad with eczema and sensitivity, this serum has changed that. I do still get eczema of course but it’s nowhere near anything like it was! My skin is glowing. Thank you so much Kate McIver you’ve given me such a confidence boost I hardly ever wear makeup now!

This is everything you NEED!

This is one of the best products I have ever used in my life and seriously i cannot recommend Kate McIver skin care products enough!!
From the serum to the cleansing balm that i even use as face mask and my skin has never been so perfect, smooth and what a GLOW - it’s just so amazing! If you haven’t order it already do it and thank me later because i know you gone love it!

Being a front line worker and has been working with corona patients sense february last year and wearing face mask all day long and same when I’m working nightshift 10-15 hours has really affected my skin, the air in the hospital and the face mask has really destroyed my skin a lot and it’s so hard to take care of yourself when you see others struggling to survive but Kate Mclver products has really been the only thing i can’t be without and that i have used every day.
After using face masks all day/night so many hours since february has created scars on my face, but these products have been a miracle for me and saved my skin, this is a luxury treat for my skin!

My skin feels and looks better today then before, I have so much more glow now, no scars and most of all you can see the difference between before and after!! My skin has never been in such good condition and i truly believe its down to this product.
I really recommend all the products from Kate but my favorite one is the Secret Weapon Serum - Original - Dry/Sensitive Skin and Cleansing Balm!
