A Small Superdrug Haul……

Hello my lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I had these gorgeous products sitting in my basket on the Superdrug website for some time now, so I thought it was about time to actually click “pay” and purchase them. In the interest of transparency I have to tell you that nothing in this beauty booty is pr gifted, I paid for it all myself. I have previously worked with Superdrug and had products from all these ranges gifted to me in the past, that’s why I buy them myself now to be honest, I know they work for me. Although I’ve never had pr from Rimmel, ever. I shall just have to dream about that, loving Rimmel nail care and polishes like I do!

For me, anything that has the Superdrug name on it works for me. Be it their varying ranges of skincare or their own range of makeup that is B. by Superdrug. The Optimum range of skincare is one of my favourites, and that range in particular caters for anyones skincare needs, whatever age. The newest range from Optimum is the night-time or bed time range of products. I treated myself to the Cleansing Balm and the Moisture Mask. I also got myself two products from the Optimum PhytoSurvive range, the Multi Protecting Serum and the Multi Protecting Day Cream.

Another Superdrug own brand of skincare is B. Skincare. I chose two cleansing products. A mahoosive bottle of Micellar Water, and a simply delicious bottle of the Micellar Oil, which is an oil to milk cleanser. From B. Makeup I picked up the Flawless Duo Concealer. All Superdrug own brand products are Vegan friendly.

Lastly I treated myself to two Rimmel 60 second super shine nail polishes, in the shades Black Cherries and Berries and Cream.

Well that’s just a few of the gorgeous products that I picked up from Superdrug a while back, and I’ve since added a few more to my basket, like Flower Beauty’s foundation and concealer ( a lovely looking makeup range by Drew Barrymore, the actress) I can’t wait to get my hands on those in a few weeks.

Thank you for stopping by today, I’ll come back soon with reviews of some of the products in my haul.

[AD-gifted] We Love! By Superdrug. Cleanser, Body Scrub and Body Butter

Hello and welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

Regular readers of my blog will know I love bringing natural beauty products to share here, and before Christmas I was sent some lovely products to try, from Superdrug.

This a Superdrug own brand from the WE LOVE range of all natural products. I have tried some face masks from the range which I reviewed on EAB, I’ll leave links at the end of this post if you’d like to take a look.

One of the things I love about this range of products is that the packaging is all recyclable. Once empty just give the pots a wash and pop them into your recycling bin! I saw a review where someone said that the packaging is colourless and boring. It’s not the prettiest, but it is environmentally friendly. The products are also suitable for vegetarian and vegans.

The We Love Cleansers Coconut Cleanser is gorgeous, It smells amazing! Containing coconut oil and shea butter this is a super creamy cleanser that I do prefer to use in my morning routine. The smell of the coconut just wakes up the sluggish morning senses. It literally just melts into the skin, you don’t need a lot of product, and it then wipes away easily with a face cloth. I did find however that it’s not great at makeup removal at the end of the day. You can check out the We Love Cleansers coconut cleanser HERE.

The We Love Body Scrubs pink grapefruit jelly scrub is another big hit for me. I have been using body scrubs a bit more recently and the fruitier the better! This smells just like a pink grapefruit, it is really beautiful. With Grapefruit oil extract in there and rice germ powder for the scrubby bit. It has castor oil for moisturisation. It certainly isn’t a scratchy body scrub it’s really comfortable to use, and leaves the skin soft and glowing and smelling gorgeous! Check out the pink grapefruit jelly scrub HERE.

After the bath or shower using the jelly scrub, how about a body butter that smells like chocolate? The We Love Moisturisers Cocoa body butter is just that. It looks like a delicious milk chocolate creamy pudding and it smells like one too! It’s not quite thick enough to be called a body butter in my opinion, but even so it’s very moisturising on my skin, it’s not sticky and sinks in just lovely. It contains shea butter and cacao butter for  lovely velvety feeling skin. I suffer from very dry skin on my right shin where I have a scar, the cocoa body butter smoothed and hydrated it for me. I have used it after shaving my legs and it did tingle a little afterwards, but that soon wore off. If you love chocolate you are going to love this! Check it out HERE.

Right now in Superdrug the offer is Buy 1 get 2nd half price on selected Superdrug brand skincare.

When Nanny and Granddaughter Love the Same Thing!

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

My 14 year old Granddaughter loves her makeup, just like her Nanny (me) so we decided to get her the Makeup Revolution 12 Days of Christmas box as a gift. Mark went off to our local Superdrug to pick it up, and when he got home and showed me, well I very nearly said she wouldn’t like it, but I do! (I couldn’t open the box to see what was inside as it was sealed, but knowing the Makeup Revolution brand it had be good) Of course actually, I knew my Granddaughter would absolutely love it, which she did!

Christmas day arrived and Mark gave me my gifts from under the tree, and one of those gifts was the Makeup Revolution 12 Days of Christmas makeup box. I was really rather pleased. The cream coloured box with pretty gold design and branding will make a lovely storage box for, you know, stuff?

Inside are 12 products, which are all exclusive to the 12 Days of Christmas box I believe. I can’t seem to find the separate products on the Revolution website, although the eyebrow palette is.

I was pleased to see a set of mini brushes inside, which feel so soft and are extremely pretty to look at. There’s two fixing sprays, which are much needed as it’s something that I never seem to replace when I run out.

Everything in the box are full sized products, the palettes are the beautifully pigmented quality that we know we get from the Revolution brand. I’m really looking forward to having a proper play with everything.

I only had one issue with this whole collection to be honest. There is a trio of lip glosses which are really beautiful nude/natural colours and right up my street, but they are rather sticky on the lips for me. The pigment and shine is gorgeous yes, but oh they do feel uncomfortable to wear.

So, inside the 12 Days of Christmas gift box you will find….

4 Travel Makeup Brushes

Lip Gloss Trio

Illuminating Fixing Spray

Cooling Fixing Spray

Mattifying Primer

Illuminating Eye Primer

Velvet Mattes Pigment Palette

Brow Palette

Ultimate Neutrals Pigment Palette

Ultra Contour Palette

Blush and Highlight Palette

Metallic Crush Pigment Palette

Mark purchased my box from Superdrug, but it doesn’t seem to be available there anymore. However, it is on sale at HALF PRICE on the Revolution website HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today.

[AD-gifted] Imedeen Prime Renewal for 50+ Supplements..

Hello my lovelies and a very Happy 2019! Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

 I was contacted by a lady representing Imedeen* who are the experts when it comes to providing supplements to “help improve the overall quality and appearance of the skin. Results can be seen in as little as 90 days – softer, smoother, younger-looking skin all over” says Imedeen*

Imedeen beauty supplements work from within, working on feeding that deep dermal layer of our skin. It’s skincare that works from the inside out. Imedeen Prime Renewal for 50+ contains exclusive Marine Complex, which is a protein and polysaccharide complex and contains certain elements which are like those that are found within the skin naturally. There’s ViTea which is an EU patented product containing white tea extract, tomato extract, grape seed extract, and vitamins C and E and Zinc is in there too, which goes towards maintaining DNA and supporting our skin health. In the evening time tablets there is Chamomile Extract added.

I have been using Imedeen Prime Renewal for 50+ for 3 months taking 4 tablets per day. That’s 2 with my Breakfast and 2 with my evening meal. When I first thought about taking the supplements I was worried that they would be large capsules which I do find hard to swallow, but thankfully the tablets are small and I had no discomfort swallowing them, I generally took them with water. You can if you wish take all 4 tablets at the same time. Okay, so how did I get on with the supplements?

So, in the first couple of weeks I became a little constipated (sorry if tmi, but I have to be honest here) all is well and working normally now though. Within about 3 weeks Mark said he could see a difference in my face already. He pointed out that the lines from my nose to mouth were plumper looking, I didn’t look like I was grumpy or had an unhappy emoji mouth! When I looked in the mirror during the first month of the trial, I noticed that my face had taken on more colour, my skin started to look pinker, less sallow looking.

During my second month I noticed how good and healthy my nails appeared to be, they are looking a lot pinker and appear to be growing quicker. The skin on the backs of my hands are still looking quite dry and fingers wrinkle rather. But elsewhere the skin on my body isn’t quite as dry as it usually is. I’m not brilliant when it comes to a full body moisturising, only my arms and chest get a good slathering of body lotion or body butters. I have a rather large scar on my shin left from an ulcer I had 10 years or so ago, and it has always looked dry and scaly and a deep brown colour around the rim of the scar. It’s now not dry and scaly any longer although it hasn’t altered in colour.

The final month of the trial is where I have noticed more changes to my skin, and not just the skin on my face but my body too. My face feels a lot smoother and softer, it’s more plump and radiant looking. Unfortunately I still have large pores though. The skin on my body is so much more soft and smooth and doesn’t feel so dry. My neck and decollatage is showing to be softer less saggy and a whole lot smoother. I’ve always had some reddy discolouration on my chest area and this now looks less so.

Of course I have obviously carried on using all my skincare during my Imedeen trial, but the two do go hand in hand, along with a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water daily too. In all, I have enjoyed what Imedeen Prime Renewal 50+ supplements have done for me and my skin. I’m enjoying how much better my skin feels and how my makeup applies, I feel that I can apply less face makeup now, like foundation and concealer and I can go out with some confidence.

There are more products in the Imedeen range of supplements, and one I am particularly interested in the Advanced Beauty Shot, which contains Vitamin c and collagen. To see more in the range and where you can purchase them just go HERE.

Teresa.

Christmas Gifting at Superdrug…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa

I have been a rather lucky blogger, and have been sent four lovely gifts from Superdrug and I’m sharing with you here on EAB. Before I begin, I do have to apologise for the use of Superdrug stock images instead of Mark’s beautiful photographs here on my blog, we’ve been having a few issues which I shan’t bore you with right now. But I can honestly say that these products have been sent to me for reviewing I haven’t just picked four products from the website and put them here, I was however asked to choose which gifts I would like to feature and I chose gifts that I would love to receive myself or gifts that I would definitely give to others.

Regular readers may know that I am a huge fan of B. Skincare, a Superdrug own brand, but Mark has yet to try the B. Men products, so I though that this would be perfect for him to dip his toe into, and the rest of him too, obviously! This is a super gift set for the man in your life. With a 4 in 1 wash that is suitable for hair beard face and body, it’s a huge 200ml too. There’s a 150ml of delicious moisturiser for face body and hands in this gift set. Both products contain Vitamin E, Horse Chestnut and Willow Bark extracts. Both of these products are suitable for Vegetarian and Vegans. Right now you can save £4 on this gift HERE.

The Spaa Escape and Relax Slipper Set is a gift I would love to find under the Christmas tree. It contains a pair of comfy looking towelling slippers that will fit shoe sizes 5 to 7 a 100g package of reviving Bath Salts, which going from past experience of using this Spaa brand, smells amazing! There is also a 75ml tube of Nourishing Foot Lotion. A super gorgeous set to use at the end of a long day methinks. This gift set is half price at Superdrug at the moment HERE.

For anyone who enjoys fruity fragrances I think the Fruity by Superdrug shower set is ideal. The Fruity range of shower gels are some of my favourites and always in my bathroom cabinet. This one is Pineapple and Papaya fragrance, and it really does smell amazing! There is a 100ml shower gel, 100ml body lotion and a pineapple sponge. This gift set is half price HERE.

If you love makeup, whoever you are, you can never have too many brushes. This is a super set of three brushes and a foundation blending sponge by Studio, London. I think that this set is ideal to give to someone just starting out using makeup, and I have an idea of who in my family would rather like this. I’ve not used this brand of brushes myself yet, so I can’t comment on the workability of them. They are synthetic so they will be easy to clean. The sponge contains latex which may cause an allergic reaction. The Studio London 4 piece brush set is half price right now in Superdrug stores and online HERE.

Once again, I’m so sorry for the use of stock images in this post. However I have taken some photos with my phone and will be popping them over on my Instagram shortly.

Thank you for stopping by today.
