B. Strong… Skincare for 60 plus

Hey lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty…

I’m not really one for using products that state they are specifically for my age I’m 57 now, I use product that I like and for my skin concerns if it’s skincare. So when I was sent a day cream and a night cream which are for those who are 60 and beyond, I thought do what?! But when I saw that it was from the B. Skincare brand at Superdrug I decided to give it a go, because I just love the B. Skincare range. Let me start with the Day Cream.

This range of B. Skincare is called B. Strong. To target 60 plus skin that has become thin and dehydrated, skin that has lost density through the ageing process. It’s said to re-cushion the skin, add plumpness back into the skin.

When I first opened the pretty glass jar the fragrance of the cream within brought back memories to me, I just thought that it smelled similar to a cold cream that my Mum used to use many years ago, and a lovely fresh smell it is too I like it a lot! I used the day cream after cleansing first thing in the morning, I have found it really rich but there is no stickiness left on the skin, it sinks in beautifully. I feel as though my skin “sucks” up more cream on the drier areas of my face which are my cheeks. I also took the day cream down onto my neck, again it just sank into the drier areas. After a time I noticed  how plumped up and more hydrated my skin looked, and on another plus it didn’t make my foundation oxidize like some moisturisers can do. This really is a gorgeous day cream, and I knew it wouldn’t let me down, ‘cos it’s from B. Skincare at Superdrug!

This is the equally gorgeous Night Cream from B. Skincare and the B. Strong range. It’s a different coloured glass jar being pretty turquoise which is fantastic for me, it saves me squinting to find my Night cream when I don’t take my reading glasses into the bathroom at night. The bright-coloured glass makes it easily recognisable, thanks B. Skincare! The Night Cream is much more rich than the Day Cream, and again it doesn’t feel sticky on the skin, it sinks in like a dream. I used this after cleansing at night, and on it’s own I never added a serum or oil like I normally would in my night time routine, I took it right down my neck as well as massaging it into my face. The next morning my skin looked so soft, it was certainly hydrated and there were no dry patches. I haven’t stopped using either of these B. Strong creams, I am really enjoying what they are doing to my skin right now, in fact my skin has never looked better!

You can find all B. Skincare only at Superdrug on the High Street or online, right now there is a Better than half price on selected B. Skincare HERE.

Thank you for stopping by my lovelies.

B. Skincare Cooling and Soothing Mask

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

Yes, I’m that age now when I’m using skincare for menopausal skin, skincare that’s created for late 50’s and beyond, and right now I’m not coping very well with the ageing process, I basically feel like crap! But thank goodness my skin can look alright with the help of some gorgeous B. Skincare which is available from Superdrug on the High Street or online. This is the B. Nourished Cooling and Soothing Mask.

There’s some pretty nice ingredients in the mask, including, Witch Hazel, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Sweet Almond Oil, Sesame Seed Oil, to name just a few.

My oh my I have enjoyed using this product! It does what it says on the tube, it’s so cooling on my skin. I suffer from redness on my chin and cheeks but once I apply this it calms the areas of redness considerably. It makes my skin look and feel smoother, and I think it mattifies my skin too, so I don’t look like a hot mess all the time. It applies to the skin like a dream and sinks in perfectly. I actually don’t know why it’s called a “mask” because you apply it and leave it on the skin. I press it onto my face so that the product delivers all the moisture into my skin. During the day, I can apply my foundation over the top, the mask acts like the perfect primer due to the mattifying properties, and keeps me moisturised for up to 12 hours! At night after cleansing, I apply a generous amount, after a few minutes I massage the excess into my skin and leave overnight. The following morning, perfect smooth hydrated skin.

Right now when you shop at Superdrug, there is a Better than half price on selected B. Skincare, and the Cooling and Soothing Mask is included in the offer, at just £4.45 reduced from the normal price of £8.99. HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today.

September favourites!

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

So it’s that time of the month again, so to speak, time for another monthly favourites post where I share with you the products that I’ve been loving during September, I’ve new favourites and a rediscovered favourite and some that are always in my favourites posts. First up is my most repurchased product, ever and it’s a nail treatment.

IMG_8648

The Rimmel London Nail Rescue. I have used it for years, ever since I stopped wearing acrylic nails. It really has “rescued” my nails, I use it each time I do a manicure as my basecoat, but every couple of months I do use it as my treatment. If you would like to read how I do use it I have a review HERE.

This  is the B.Skincare Restorative Facial Oil, I  rediscovered it this last month, and I’ve fallen in love all over again, it’s from Superdrug on the High Street and I think it’s fabulous, I do love facial oils! I only use it at night-time twice a week under my night cream when I feel my skin needs a bit of a “pick me up” You can check out my review HERE.

Next, I have an eyeshadow brush that I think is just about the prettiest I have ever seen! It’s filled with Swarovski crystals, yes REAL Swarovski crystal! I love it not just because it’s so pretty but also because it’s gorgeous to use, I love the weight, it’s so comfortable to hold. The bristle holds onto the product and then blends over the eye beautifully, a really superb eyeshadow brush! My review of this and four more makeup brushes is HERE. If you would like to see.

I really have found my new “hero” in a concealer. I was later than most people to discover the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer but now I’m so glad I have joined that party because it’s fantastic, and it will always be a repurchase for me that’s for sure. Check out my review HERE.

Lastly my beautiful Gold Bee Venom Mask by Heaven Skincare! I have mentioned in previous posts that 80% of the products I review, I purchase myself while the other 20% I have had sent to me for review or I have won as prizes on Twitter. This was a prize that I won on Twitter in celebration of Heaven Skincare’s 21st Birthday. I was so overcome when I got that DM telling me that I was the Twitter winner, I did have a cry I shall admit. I never thought that I would ever be able to have something so luxurious, so prestigious in my life. I really am very lucky. I have reviewed the Gold Bee Venom Mask HERE.

So that’s what I’ve loved over the last month, thank you for stopping by today.

October Favourites….

Hello loves, Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

It’s been a while since I did a monthly favourites post, so I thought as I’ve purchased a few things over the last month or so, I’ll do one to share with you what I’ve been loving in October. Let’s begin with skincare.

IMG_8524

My gorgeous B. Skincare  Enriched Restorative Facial Oil! I have loved using this beautiful product every night in my skincare regime, and it’s made a huge difference to the way my skin looks when I wake in the morning. You can see my review HERE 

My next product that I’ve loved this month is very new to my makeup collection, and it’s also new from MUA Makeup Academy too. 

IMG_8255

The Skin Define Hydro Primer is like no other primer I’ve used, ever. I do like a primer under foundation but I find some can “roll” or “ball up” while applying to my face. This one doesn’t do that at all. I’ve read that this is very much like the Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer. (A dupe?) You can read my full review HERE 

IMG_8304

I have a new BFF! It’s a gorgeous eyeshadow palette from who else but MUA again. It’s new for Autumn/Winter. The cute little Utopia palette from the MUA Luxe range is full of high pigmented powder eyeshadows, the shades are perfect for this season and through Christmas and beyond. You can see a full review HERE 

I’ve a blusher that I’ve been reaching for the most this month, and I bought it from Beauty Crowd. It’s beautiful to look at and to use too!

IMG_7678

The Milani Rose Powder Blush in the shade Tea Rose. It’s a huge size, very pigmented and I just love how it’s moulded into a rose, so pretty! You can read my full review HERE 

My new makeup brushes! Oh how I love these beauties. I bought them from the Beauty Crowd website and they’re by Barbara Hoffman. 

IMG_6560

These are all face brushes for foundation, powder and blusher/bronzer. The soft synthetic bristles make blending easy peasy, and they clean easily too. Read my full review HERE 

I do have many more “faves” from this last month but it would make for a long read, so I’ll leave it there for now.

B Skincare Restorative Facial Oil…

Hi again lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

Today I’ve a facial oil for you. It’s the B Skincare Restorative Facial Oil that was sent to me for review.

IMG_8524

Firstly, spot the un- deliberate mistake. When I gave Mark the product to photograph I gave him the wrong box! The box for the facial oil isn’t exactly the same as the one showing, but it’s all about the oil and not the box it comes in, isn’t it?

So on with talking about this delicious facial oil. Firstly, it’s in a glass bottle and dispensed via a pipette dropper which I love. It has a very subtle rose fragrance which is due to the blend of Rosehip with Argan and Shea butter. These three combined within the rich oil help with the firmness and radiance of the skin. There is also something called Crambe seed oil in the product which helps calm and comfort the skin by providing up to 12 hours hydration. It contains high levels of Vitamin C which is helping to maintain the skins radiance and protects from dryness.

It’s best to use the oil at night as part of your bedtime routine for a really pampering overnight treatment for your skin. After cleansing and toning, I warm 2/3 drops of the oil in the palms of my hands. But before I apply to my face I always seem to breathe in the fragrance first, then I lay my hands onto my face to “push” the oil into my skin. I then massage my face for about 3 minutes and finish my routine with my night cream.

I’ve been using my B. Skincare Restorative Facial Oil every night for 2 months and I can honestly say that the morning after, my skin looks fantastic. It feels very soft, smooth and hydrated, and glowing too. I am loving using it, a lot! There is 30 ml of glorious oil in the bottle which will last for ages, It’s got a 12 month shelf life once open. As with all B. Skincare products it’s not tested on animals and it’s perfect for Vegan and vegetarians to use too. It’s just £7.99 in store at Superdrug or online HERE

Thank you for stopping by today.
