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.

There are some gorgeous new face masks coming to Superdrug soon and I’m trialing them to review later on EAB.

There are 6 in all and I’m trialing 3 of them. I have Charcoal, Avocado Oat and Blueberry Jam face masks to try. The other 3 in the range are Coffee, Kale and Coconut which I’m going purchase as soon as they are in store and online at Superdrug and then review them here on my blog.

Becoming “Skin Intelligent” with Juliette Armand…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa..

Don’t worry I’m not here to blind you with skin science, I’m here simply to share with you three skincare products that I’ve been sent to trial and review here on EAB.  This is a range of skincare by Juliette Armand. The company says:

“The Juliette Armand brand boasts 210 products and 40 treatments across the Elements, Skin Boosters and Sun Film ranges. Based on extensive and detailed scientific research, the brand creates innovative, non-invasive cosmetics that help clients to feel good in their own skin”

I have a serum, a moisturiser and an eye cream to share with you today. Firstly though, look at the bright orange and white packaging I feel it’s so clean-looking isn’t it! Let me tell you about the serum first.

This is the Chronos Therapy Hydra Antitox Serum by Juliette Armand.  Chronos Therapy is as the company says a “treatment that repairs marks that time may leave on the skin. The therapy prevents and repairs damage to skin over time without using injections” It’s deeply moisturising and anti-aging. It contains Matrixyl which is a peptide that stimulates collagen and helps the skin to repair, and there’s Vitamins A and E within the serum too helping to plump and hydrate the skin. It’s the pump-action delivery system that I love to see in a face product, giving the amount needed and there is no risk of contamination of the product inside. The pump is of the twist up type, which means there is no lid to keep faffing around with. When I first started to use the three products I was using 2 pumps worth of the serum after cleansing and toning. After a few days I noticed I was getting a few spots so I dropped to using just the 1 pump worth of product,  and after using for a month I haven’t been troubled by spots any more. I always apply serum by pressing it into my skin so it was the same when using this one too. It sinks beautifully into my skin, and without any stickiness, I just leave for a few minutes before applying moisturiser.

With Avocado Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E added to this product that Juliette Armand calls an  “Anti- Surgery System” that lifts and tightens and adds glow to the skin, to treat wrinkles by contraction of the facial muscles. I can actually feel a slight tingle on my face when I’ve applied it and not in an uncomfortable way either, it’s in fact fabulous to feel that a product is working. It’s not highly fragranced but it does smell absolutely delightful! After applying Skin Boosters Anti Wrinkle Cream I left it to do its work for a few minutes before applying my foundation, and my foundation went on beautifully. A super base for makeup, and my skin feels so hydrated at the same time too. After a month of using the combo of the Juliette Armand serum and anti wrinkle cream my skin is looking and feeling fabulous. I gave up smoking 10 months ago, and obviously cigarettes had left me with those horrid top lip wrinkles, but I am so happy to say that they are now less noticeable since using these products! I need some more, I am loving this! Anyone for eye cream? Oh here you are then!

Regular readers of my blog will probably know I love me an eye cream. AND I love this eye cream. The Juliette Armand Opsis Therapy Lift Anti – Wrinkle Eye Cream. Yes it did look frightening when I first saw the syringe, but it’s only packaging no needles at all! There’s that Matrixyl 3000 peptide within this product, that stimulates collagen, there’s also Vitamin E too. When the top of the syringe is pressed to release the product it releases enough to pop onto both eyes. I used it all around the orbital area in an upwards and outwards motion, also taking it onto my brow bone sweeping upwards as well. The “nib” of the applicator is meant to be used to massage the product onto the eye area, but to be honest I used my finger. I have been using this eye cream for just over a month now, and my eye area is looking pretty good for a 57-year-old who sleeps badly. I find that at the end of the day my under eyes are still feeling hydrated and wrinkles are so fine now. Concealer used to make my under eyes feel dry after a time, but not any longer. Some rich eye creams also can leave me with puffiness under the eyes and I’ve ended up with a bit of Milia too which was annoying, but I don’t have to worry with this beauty!

I have thoroughly enjoyed using my products from Juliette Armand, I think my favourite has got to be the eye cream. If you would like to check out the products for yourself the link is HERE.

On Trial…..

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.
