No7 EARLY DEFENCE GLOW ACTIVATING SERUM and YOUTHFUL EYE SERUM

Hey there lovelies, welcome to my blog Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

My posts lately have all been very heavy with Boots/No7 products. I make no apologies at all for that. Anyone would think that I’m being paid to review them, but sadly not, I have purchased them myself. I thought I’d share some more today, why not? This is the No7 Early Defence Glow Activating serum and Youthful Eye Serum too.

Let me start with the Early Defence Glow Activating Serum. It can be used morning and night which is what I’ve been doing. It contains Matrixyl 3000+No7’s powerful anti-wrinkle peptide technology which helps to give the skin a more youthful appearance. Also, No7’s Double Defence Technology protects the skin from the environment.

Serums are designed to be used under a moisturiser, day or night cream, and I have been doing both in my morning and night time regimes. After cleansing and toning, I applied the serum to my face and down my neck. I used a couple of pea-sized amounts to cover the whole of my big face/neck. It felt quite silicone-y on application so I was quite concerned it would clog my pores but after using every day and night for the last few weeks it hasn’t clogged my pores, I have rather soft radiant looking skin with a bit of a glow too. It does say on the packaging you will get glowing after about a week, but to be honest, it has it’s taken longer on my skin, it doesn’t matter though, this serum is lovely. If you would like to try it yourself checkout Boots website HERE.

No7’s Youthful Eye Serum is designed to be used under your eye cream. It has a blend of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C along with soft focus spheres to instantly smooth and revitalise and brighten the eye area. With Vitamin A and anti-aging peptides, it works on my wrinkles making them look softened and it has also been helping my dark circles too. I’m really enjoying using these two gorgeous serums within my skincare regime right now. You can check out this eye serum HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading today, stay safe my lovelies.

NEW SKINCARE REGIME FOR AUTUMN (FALL)

Hey there my lovelies, welcome along to my blog Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

Regular readers here will know that I’ve been buying a bit of skincare over the last few months, since the first lockdown here in the UK actually. Two or three online Boots deliveries later and I have quite a bit of skincare and a few pieces of makeup to feature here on EAB. I don’t get brand gifts or PR products anymore, so shopping I must do to keep my blog alive.

I thought that I would show you some Boots own brand skincare that I’ve been loving at the moment, this is getting my skin Glowing!

There are 4 Boots own-brand products which I have found is making my skin look amazing! The Glow Cleansing Oil is delicious. With Olive fruit oil and Sunflower oil too it’s perfect for a deep-down cleanse. It does have added fragrance, so if you suffer from sensitive skin you could have a problem. It doesn’t worry me and it does smell rather gorgeous. I use it in a different way to what is suggested on the bottle. I apply a couple of pumps worth to my hands and massage it over my face then remove it with a muslin cloth or flannel. It doesn’t leave any oily residue, I just have lovely skin that’s brighter and glowing. After cleansing, I go onto the Glow brightening Mist. Containing castor oil and also hyaluronic acid, it really is a refreshing brightening, and plumping facial mist. My only negative is that the mist is rather hard and leaves my face quite wet, although it doesn’t take too long to dry. With it, all housed in pretty pink packaging with gold branding it’s a yes from me. You can find the Boots Glow range HERE.

The Boots Ingredients range is said to be a “dupe” for The Ordinary brand of skincare. I can’t comment re the Ordinary as I have never used the brand at all. I can see though that it does compare, price wise.

I purchased Boots Ingredients Hyaluronic Acid Serum and the Caffeine Eye Cream too. The serum is fabulous, and a little goes a long way. I used just one pump of product which I pressed into my skin, I always press in serum rather than rub or massage it in nowadays, I much prefer it, I feel like it working its way into my skin better. I’ve been using the Hyaluronic serum for some weeks now and I do rather think that my skin is looking better for it. It’s plumper and more hydrated, wrinkles over my lips appear less too. The Caffeine Eye cream is a bit good too. Caffeine is an antioxidant which makes it perfect for around the eye area. It softens and flattens out the wrinkles and it brightens up my eyes too. I absolutely love this eye cream, and I will re-purchase for sure. You will find the Boots Ingredients range HERE.

The last product in my skincare regime is the L’Oreal Paris Triple Active Day Moisturiser. It’s a product that Mark picked up for me actually, I needed a new day cream, he saw this one and got it for me. The texture is lovely, it’s quite velvety not greasy at all, and sinks right away into my skin. Afterward, my skin feels hydrated and soft, and supple. The 24-hour hydration is helped by the added glycerin. It’s enriched with vitamin E and UV filters, Triple Active helps to protect against free radicals and the harmful effects of the sun that can cause premature aging of the skin. You will find the L’Oreal Triple Active Day Moisturiser HERE.

Well, thank you for stopping by and reading today. Wishing you all a fabulous week, stay safe my lovelies.

No7 RADIANT RESULTS PURIFYING CLAY CLEANSER.

Hi there my loves, I hope you are all okay. Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I got this cleanser in the Boots No7 Beauty Vault Box that I showed here a few weeks ago. The box itself is now sold out but the products inside can all be purchased individually.

I love the Radiant Results range from No7 at Boots, and the Purifying Clay Cleanser did not disappoint at all. To be honest, when I first opened the cleanser and started to use it I really thought that it would be a different texture. I thought it would be a bit more the exfoliating type, but this is so very creamy and rich and smooth. It does contain 10% kaolin (clay) to help with clearing out oil and impurities and to reduce the look of enlarged pores by deeply cleansing the skin. It’s also formulated with No7’s own Tri-Vit Complex + Meadowsweet and Vitamins C, E, and B5

To use, I applied to my face and neck, avoiding the eye area. I massaged well over the skin and although it says to rinse with water, I removed with a facecloth or muslin cloth, which is my preference for all cleansers. Afterward, my skin feels so fresh and clean, it looks bright and refreshed too. I do love this cleanser for my morning cleanse for just that reason, for freshness because it does rather waken up the senses somewhat. Perfect!

I have a link to this beauty HERE, if you are interested.

Thank you so much for reading today, I wish you all well, and stay safe.

YourGoodSkin ProVitamin Overnight Cream

Hey there my lovelies, I hope you are all doing okay. Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I thought that I would share with you my thoughts on one of the products from one of my Boots hauls. This is the YourGoodSkin ProVitamin Overnight Cream.

Loving loving loving this night cream! THE END…..

Hahaha let me tell you really why I love this night cream. There is a negative as well, by the way.

The YourGoodSkin night cream has some really yummy things in, like Green Tea and vitamins C, E and B5. It’s a lightweight cream but so nourishing, it doesn’t block my pores, gives me fantastic overnight moisturisation and hydration. A little goes a long way too I found, I just dot some on my cheeks and forehead and massage in. It feels cooling on my skin and really does sink in. It’s also paraben free and is oil free too. My skin the following morning is really quite glowing and it feels nourished and still feels hydrated too. Just what I love from a night cream, and it will definitely be a re-purchase. So, the negative? Just the cardboard box really, why does the sturdy tube need to be in a box?

I shall definitely be trying more products from this brand, and there are a few to check out HERE.

Thank you for stopping by and reading today, take care.

No7 Radiant Results Revitalising Micellar Cleansing Water.

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I’ve been shopping a bit on the  Boots website just lately, and a few weeks ago I treated myself to the Boots No7 Beauty Vault, you can read all about it HERE. One of the products that I was very taken with is the No7 Radiant Results Revitalising Micellar Cleansing Water. I’m loving skincare products that are going to help my skin look more radiant and glowing, it does make for younger-looking skin, and as I’ve aged and got to  60 years old my skin had a tendency to look dull and grey, which made me look older, I feel anyway.

This is a huge 200ml bottle with a very handy pump-action application delivery system. 2 or 3 pumps are enough for a quick cleanse in the morning or to freshen up during the day. It has Red Ginseng and No7’s own Tri-vit complex in the ingredients that make it perfect for makeup removal too. I applied a couple of pumps of the micellar water onto a cotton pad and held it over each eye for a minute or so to dissolve my mascara, it took a couple of swipes before it was completely removed, it didn’t sting my eyes, and my lashes felt soft. It also did a great job at removing my face makeup, again without my skin stinging and without my face being left dry and tight. Afterward, my skin looks clean and bright and glowing, just what I want! (I then go in for a second cleanse, with a lotion, balm or oil cleanser) This micellar water is suitable for eyes, face, and lips and is totally unperfumed making it great if you have sensitive skin. 

You can check out this and lots of other wonderful products from No7 HERE.
