Taking a look at: Plunkett Pharmaceuticals

Hi everyone,

Today I have reviews of some John Plunkett and Nutri Synergy products that I’ve been trialling recently to share with you all. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Plunkett Pharmaceuticals (who’s brands include John Plunkett, Nutri Synergy, Suvana and Plunketts):

Plunkett Pharmaceuticals is an Australian owned company dedicated to producing high quality health and beauty products at affordable prices.

The founder of Plunkett Pharmaceuticals, John Plunkett, was a respected pharmacist who began formulating the Plunkett Pharmaceutical products over thirty years ago. John Plunkett was dedicated to creating these products as he believed there was a need for skin care made by Australians, for Australians and the climate conditions they live under.   – Plunketts



John Plunkett Collagen Lift Moisturiser *

Containing Matrixyl 3000, Avocado, Rosehip and Hyaluronic filling spheres to plump, smooth and hydrate, this treatment moisturiser is targeted to those with normal to dry skin as it aids to penetrate the skin to bind water and prevent moisture loss. With a custard like colour, this smooth creamy moisturiser is of a slightly thinner consistency to most traditional moisturisers. This product blends effortlessly and in a matter of seconds, its quickly soaked up by the skin in order to penetrate and deliver results. After application, the skin is left feeling smooth and hydrated and there is no sign of any greasiness, both in look and feel. A little does go a long way with this moisturiser as it blends so easily into the skin with a soft, pleasant scent.

I find that this a great daily moisturiser as it’s light enough to wear during the day under makeup while potent enough during the night to deliver high levels of hydration to leave your skin looking and feeling great the next morning. The John Plunkett Collagen Lift Moisturiser works well to diminish any dry patches of skin and improve the skin’s overall texture as well as plumping it for a soft, supple feel and more youthful appearance.


Nutri Synergy NS-5 Cuticle & Nail Complex *

Previously fully reviewed here a few month ago, the  NS-5 Cuticle & Nail Complex has continued to play an important role in maintaining my nail and cuticle health. This versatile product can be used on the cuticles to help nourish and hydrate them whilst improving their appearance as well as used on the nails, both on bare nails as well as nails which have nail polish applied to them to strengthen and provide nutrients for overall better health through natural ingredients. Comfortable to use at all times of the day thanks to its non greasy formula, this is a must have product for everyone.


John Plunkett Glyco Peel

With the active ingredients of Glycolic Acid, Lactokine (Milk Protein) and Aloe Vera, this night time glyco exfoliator aims to exfoliate the skins outer layer as you sleep to remove old dull skin. Suitable for all skin types, the regime however, differs slightly in the frequency of application per week, however the results are just as effective. After receiving this in a beauty subscription box, I was hesitant to trial this product thanks to it’s ‘Peel’ title. But after reading rave reviews, I decided to give it a go and am so glad that i did! Following the directions of using this product for one week,  allowing the skin to rest for the next week and then to begin reapplying the week after, I applied this product every second night, as suggested for a normal skin type (for oily skin, apply every night and for dry skin, apply twice a week).

The John Plunkett Glyco Peel is a clear, slightly thicker than liquid consistency product that is to be applied under moisturiser. Spreading onto the skin with ease, the product dries at a rapid rate to allow you to continue with your night time skincare regime in a timely manner. After 3 cycles of weekly use and then a rest week, there have been noticeable improvements to my skin. Waking up with smooth, soft skin, any dry skin is gone while the skins texture has improved and overall, the skin has a much clearer complexion and fresh look. This product hasn’t caused any irritation, dryness or breakouts and is a very affordable, highly effective and recommended alternative to the more expensive glycolic acid products.


Nutri Synergy NS-3 Lip Balm *

This petroleum, paraffin and paraben free product contain Coconut, Honey, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter  and Paw Paw to moisturise and heal not only the lips but also areas such as the nose, ears and cuticles. With a beautiful sweet vanilla and honey scent, the slated plastic applicator makes it convenient to use both at home and when out and about. With a thick consistency, this product works best when rubbed in to ensure optimum results and does not leave any sticky or greasy residue while feeling quite light when worn.

With one application lasting up to 3 hours, the NS-3 Lip Balm is a great product to protect the lips from dryness and harsh weather conditions all throughout the year. I found this perfect to also use under a lipstick to hydrate the lips and to prevent drying throughout the day. This versatile product is the perfect product to have on hand for a number of uses. With its natural and organic formula, its also suitable for use by everyone, including infants.
