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.

Organic and Botanic Enhancing Night Moisturiser….

Hi lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

Today I’m sharing with you a lovely night cream from a brand that is new to me. I was contacted by the brand Organic & Botanic to ask me if I would like to try a couple of their products. As regular readers will know I love natural skincare, so how could I say no to this opportunity. This the Mandarin Orange Enhancing Night Moisturiser.

organicandbotanicnightcream

Firstly the packaging is fantastic, it’s not over the top in any way at all, it’s all completely recyclable. The box that the product is in, is a very thin plain-looking cardboard, the jar is a brown glass, everything can be thrown into your recycling bin after giving the jar a quick rinse. Wonderful!

This night cream smells amazing! It really does smell of mandarin orange, and not fake fragrance either it’s all completely natural, organic. The base of the product is Shea Butter with Coconut Oil, Aloe Leaf juice, Neroli flower oil, Damask Rose flower oil, it literally made my mouth water when I first opened the jar. The ingredients within the night moisturiser are in there to help with the overnight repair of the skin, helping it to be more rejuvenated, and everything about the product is suitable for vegans too.

So how did I use my Mandarin Orange Night Moisturiser? I double cleansed my face with a high street store own brand hot cloth cleanser first and toned with my glycolic glow tonic, also a budget brand and then applied my night moisturiser. The cream is light, almost gel like but very creamy and my skin just drank it up as I was massaging it in. It doesn’t leave a sticky feeling on the skin either, it just felt soft and moisturised. The next morning my skin down my T-zone felt a little oily, I don’t usually feel oily on my skin at all, the rest of my face however felt very soft and smooth, and it looked a lot brighter for first thing in the morning. All in all, this is a very lovely night time moisturiser and you can check it out HERE.

I’ll be back soon with another lovely product from Organic & Botanic.

Heaven Skincare Overnight Success Oxygen Cream…

This is quite possibly the nicest night cream I’ve ever used! I had a sample of the Overnight Success Oxygen Cream by Heaven Skincare, and I’m sad that I’ve finished it up, it’s been amazing. I have such a long “shopping/wish list” of Heaven Skincare and body products, I just need to get the finances now to re-purchase.Heavenoxygencream

This lovely light cream contains some beautiful organic essential oils, one of them being Absolute Rose which absolutely comes through subtley in the fragrance of the cream, it also contains Sandalwood oil. There is also Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, and Hyaluronic Acid.  Now for the science bit! This night cream contains Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide which makes it light and so allows the skin to breathe and rejuvenate overnight.

This cream was so cooling when I applied it to my face after cleansing and toning, for a night cream it felt very fresh which is due to the Oxygen within. It sank into my skin right away and because it felt so light I used it under my eyes too, hoping it wouldn’t lead me to waking up with puffiness on the eye area. I needn’t have worried, when I looked in the mirror the following morning my skin looked so good, it was beautifully hydrated with no oilyness that some night creams have left me with. There was no sign of any grey or dullness to my skin, absolutely no puffiness from using it under my eyes either. My skin was glowing, the two pimples on my cheek that have been bugging me for a while appear lessened too. This really is a gorgeous night cream. It’s perfect for any skin type, even sensitive and Rosacea prone skins can benefit.

Divine Cream from Heaven by Deborah Mitchell….

Hello lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

Before I get to my review of the Divine Cream from Heaven Skincare I thought that I would give you a little insight to the company. Heaven Skincare was created 20 years ago by Deborah Mitchell, a qualified beauty therapist with over 25 years experience. She decided to create an all natural and organic range of beauty products, for face and body. She’s also a qualified teacher of beauty therapy, running her own Heaven training school for beauty therapists from all over the world, there are Heaven salons right across the world too, in Europe, America, Middle East and Asia. Deborah has also won numerous awards for her products, and has many celebrity clients who love Heaven Skincare treatments, not only that there are a couple of royal ladies who are fans too! Hows that for an accolade?

Okay so on with my review. Divine Cream from Heaven by Deborah Mitchell is a beautiful moisturiser that can be used day and night. The packaging is just gorgeous, its pink my favourite colour! The silver top is a twist up pump delivery system which gives you just the right amount you need for application. The cream itself is full of  essential oils all are known to be fabulous for the skin, like Mandarin and Orange oils. Mandarin is known to release collagen into the skin to give a firmer look and feel to your face. It also contains Witch Hazel and Lavender within the cream too, and not forgetting  Soya Oil, Vitamins A and E and silk proteins. The Divine Cream is suitable for all skin types, and is an anti ageing product. 

I’ve been using Divine Cream every morning and at night-time after cleansing. I use two pumps of the cream and massage into my skin. It smells gorgeous, a lovely citrus fragrance from the Mandarin and Orange essential oils, It feels so refreshing when going onto the skin and is completely absorbed with no stickiness whatsoever. Because of the Orange essential oil, the cream has a natural source of Vitamin C which makes the skin look brighter and more radiant, and  yes it really does! You can also use it sparingly under the eyes, just tap it gently into the delicate skin, and it won’t cause puffiness on the area.

So what did the Divine Cream do for my skin? It’s a lot more radiant, it’s definitely plumper, especially I’ve noticed around mouth area, I’ve a bit of scarring on my chin left over from teenage acne, and they appear to be smoother looking. The cream keeps my skin moisturised all day until I cleanse at night time. I use the cream at night but I add an extra pump of the cream to give my skin an overnight treat. The next morning I don’t have dull grey looking skin, just lovely smooth nourished skin. Oh how I love this cream, it’s Divine

The bottle I have is 15ml in size which is going to last me quite a while, you can find this and more Heavenly skincare HERE
