Hello my lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.
Firstly, if you have been here before, what do you think of my new blog header? I think it looks a bit more “grown up” Obviously thanks go to my other half Mark for making the change for me. So onto the business in hand and the reason why you are here (hopefully)
Regular readers will know my passion and love for Superdrug own brand products, especially B. Skincare and B. Makeup which I’ve featured quite heavily recently, the other range I have a penchant for is the Optimum skincare range. There are a few Optimum posts if you’d care to read, HERE.
Over the next few posts I shall be sharing the Optimum PhytoEnergise range, Superdrug’s latest skincare range set to rival some of the more expensive high-end skincare, but at a fraction of the price, making great skincare more accessible to those of us on a smaller budget.
So Optimum PhytoEnergise then is a range of skincare products that is formulated using something called Early Boost, an active ingredient containing the amino acid taurine, which is said to provide the skin with a kick of energy. Optimum have given us a “purse friendly” (says Superdrug) alternative to the more high-end more expensive taurine based skincare. Early Boost is well-known for its anti-inflammation and energising properties and it’s extracted from Jania Rubens seaweed, said to help skin that has become dull and tired looking. There are three vegan friendly Optimum PhytoEnergise products in the range, Glycolic Cleansing Pads, Refreshing Eye Gel and 3 in 1 Moisture Balm, Primer and Mask. I shall be bringing all them to you, I’m starting today with the Glycolic Cleansing Pads.
I have always wanted to get my hands on a Glycolic cleansing pad, and I did actually purchase a pot of another Superdrug own brand pads a couple of weeks ago, and I shall share them with you another time. This range though is another Superdrug brand, Optimum and these are the Glycolic Cleansing Pads. They are a deep cleansing pad which will help to minimise the look of large pores and helps in the retexturising the skin’s surface, leaving it looking brighter and less grey and dull looking. I have been using these pads for over a month now. I started by using them every morning but I was literally over exfoliating my skin, I was suffering from breakouts and sore dry patches around my mouth. I stopped using them for a week then began again, but I now just use them twice a week. I mainly use them in the mornings after first cleansing my face with my usual cleanser. I then sweep a pad over my face avoiding the eye area and lips. These really have given my skin a glow, my cheeks are looking quite rosy right now! I will never get rid of my enlarged pores I don’t think, they have occurred due to ageing to be honest. But my skin is so smooth to the touch and certainly a lot more fresh looking now. These will most definitely be in my morning skincare routine now, and if you feel you would like to give them a go they are currently better than half price in Superdrug HERE. Be aware that when using the Glycolic Cleansing pads they may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Apply an SPF after use.
Thank you for stopping by today.
