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.

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I just thought I’d share with you some new skincare that I’m currently trialing and then review in a few weeks on my blog. I was sent moisturiser, serum and eye cream from a brand that I’ve not heard of before. Juliette Armand. I will tell you more about the company in my review post, soon.

I’ve been using it for just a week and it’s so far so good. Yes that is a syringe you see before you, but it’s not a needle don’t worry, it’s the delivery system of the eye cream, did I like it? I’ll tell you in a couple of weeks time when I come back with my review. Hope to see you then.

Heaven Skincare Prism Age Defiance Cream … My Thoughts

I am seriously nervous about writing and posting my review on this new Heaven Skincare product. It uses technology that I really don’t understand at all. I’m not a scientist, I’m not a beauty therapist or a skin specialist, I’m just someone who enjoys using beauty products and then writing about them here on Elegant Ageless Beauty. This product was sent to me for review.

Heaven’s newest product is the Prism Age Defiance Cream, an anti-aging cream which is made all the more powerful when in contact with a light source! This is the part I don’t understand, so I’m going to be honest with you, I’m just going to tell you how the Prism cream worked for me. This is what Heaven says

“Prism Age Defiance Cream is a revolutionary anti-ageing moisturiser that on contact with any light source generates smoother, tighter skin actually reversing the signs of damage & ageing from sunlight, light and pollutants. a natural sun care boosts collagen on exposure to UVA, UVB and Infrared light. protects you from visible light from mobile phones, tablets and computers”

Let’s talk ingredients. Organic Coconut Absolute is the base oil, with Vitamins B5 and E in there too as is  Hyaluronic Acid. The amino acid called L-Carnosine packs a punch in anti-aging skincare and it’s within this beauty also, to help skin cells to reproduce quicker, it especially helps with deep-set wrinkles and helps to reduce the appearance of age spots and skin that is thinning.

Prism Age Defiance from Heaven Skincare has all these amazing features, It helps to protect against sun damage, as it protects against skin DNA damage although it is NOT  an SPF, it’s an anti-ageing moisturiser that helps clear spots and prevent further break outs. Which I am so grateful for actually, as it’s worked for  my breakouts, I’ve been suffering terribly recently because I’m trialing other skincare at the moment. Other things I’ve noticed since using the Prism Age Defiance Cream is that my nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds) are plumped out and less noticeable. As a former smoker I have lines on my top lip that bug the heck out of me, but they too have diminished since using Prism Age Defiance Cream it’s also soft and smooth and moisturised too. This anti-aging cream really is Heavenly, it’s suitable for all skin types, helps with rosacea and sensitive skin too. You will find Heaven Skincare Prism Age Defiance Cream HERE.

EpiSpa Organic Lighter Brighter Illuminating Moisturiser with spf 25

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I have been sent another beautiful product from the fabulous people at epiSpa who are situated on Harley Street, world-famous as the private health care area of London. They have created a range of organic beauty products made from nutrient-rich natural organic ingredients, all are natural plant extracts which are proven to be great for our skins. The product I have to share with you today is the Organic Lighter Brighter Illuminating Moisturiser, which has an spf 25.

With its gorgeous metallic packaging it keeps all the gorgeousness of the product within, cool. What is the gorgeousness within? They are the most beautiful organic ingredients that can be found in a moisturiser! Manuka Honey, it’s in there to help the skin with regeneration, because honey is a humectant it also holds onto moisture in the skin without making it oily. Coconut oil, one of my favourite ingredients is in there because it will help to restore dry skin, helps to strengthen the skins tissue as it absorbs quickly. Pomegranate seed oil helps to restore the brightness and luminosity of the skin. Then there is a plant based natural skin whitening agent, Tyrostat which can help with the reduction of age spots and pigmentation in three weeks.

As with the eye cream that I reviewed a while back, I’ll leave a link to that at the end of this post, the Lighter Brighter Illuminating Moisturiser smells amazing, it’s got a refreshing cucumber fragrance to it, and it feels just as refreshing to use too! It glides onto the skin easily and sinks in almost straight away, there’s no stickiness or residue left behind on the skin it’s just soft moisturised and ready for makeup. My skin is glowing after using this moisturiser for the last few weeks, and I’ve been using it day and night. Some illuminating skincare has so much glitter particles in, but there are no such thing in this gorgeous product. If you like your day cream/moisturisers with SPF then you will find a 25 spf within this. I LOVE the epiSpa Organic Lighter Brighter Illuminating moisturiser and it’s one that I would recommend to my friends and family. You can find it HERE.

My review of the epiSpa Illuminating Eye Cream is HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Ellora Beauty… High Performance Day Moisturiser..

Hello lovely people, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

Here’s the second product from the fabulous new skincare company that I’ve been trialing over the last few weeks it’s of course Ellora Beauty, and this is the High Performance Day Moisturiser.

Thank you to Ellora Beauty for allowing me to use their image in my blog, I had many many sachets of the moisturiser to use rather than the full sized product, so Mark has had this post off so to speak! Mind you he hasn’t got off too lightly, he’s just photographed the night cream for me. Anyhow, on with the review of this beauty.

Packed with beautiful ingredients such as Swiss Apple Stem Cell to combat the visible signs of aging, Advanced Peptide Complex which helps to smooth the look of wrinkles and facial lines, and helps to improve the elasticity of the skin. Beautiful Damask Rose, Red Clover and Mountain Tea Extracts all help to nourish smooth and plump up the look of the skin.

As I’ve got older my skin has become quite dull looking, so I really need products to put the brightness back into my face, and the High Performance Day Moisturiser does just that. After using for a few weeks now, my skin is softer and a lot brighter in fact it does have a rosy  glow. The gorgeous thick cream is a joy to use, a little goes a long way, and the delicious fragrance enlivens the senses too, which is so needed in the mornings. It readies my face for makeup giving me the perfect base for my foundation or BB cream. This is a 50ml (1.7fl oz) jar of gorgeousness!
