What to expect when trying new skincare

What to expect when trying new skincare

Maybe it’s because life’s so fast and busy these days, but when it comes to trying new products (and other things in life), I’m as impatient as... anything!

If I don’t see that promised thigh-gap emerging the morning after a spin class, my faith is lost and the towel is going down. Sure, I know it’s almost impossible for my thighs to instantly melt away, but without a timeline or end goal to hold on to, I’m lost. 

Thankfully, with years of experience working with natural ingredients to care for my skin, my expectations around skincare are a little more realistic.

So, for those of you who are a bit like me, I thought I’d put together some answers about timelines and when you can expect results after trying new skincare products.

P.S ↑ that is not my thigh-gap nor thighs.


cleanser expectations

smooth skin

Every time you use a healthy cleanser, your skin should feel smooth and soft. An effective cleanser should also gently remove makeup without stripping your skin of its natural goodness. (NEEK’s vegan cleanser uses Aloe Vera and Calendula to rebalance dryness and calm delicate skin.)


When using new products, your skin may breakout. But don’t panic. Wait! Before you roll your eyes and think “awesome!?”, you need to understand that this is actually kind of a good thing. It means your skin is purging toxins and preparing to get its glow on. So, don’t lose heart if you experience a breakout early on. It usually only lasts for a few days. By 28 days (after a full skin cell cycle), you should start to see the difference.

blemishes + acne

Natural cleansers heal and rebalance your skin over time. Used day and night, you should see improvements in a month, and reap all the benefits after three. (NEEK’s vegan cleanser is packed with blemish-fighting ingredients, including green tea to normalise sebum production and Vitamin C for natural regeneration.)


Nothing will completely reverse the visible signs of ageing. BUT, some kick-arse natural active ingredients can soften deep wrinkles and fill out fine lines after three to six months of consistent use. (NEEK’s vegan moisturiser uses hyaluronic acid to help your skin hold water and “plump up”, plus wattle seed and bladderwrack to repair your skin and fade sun spots.

the one-three rule...
+ three for two!

To sum up, when it comes to trying new skincare, you should start seeing the changes in one month… and you should start reaping all the benefits in three months.
