Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.
My skin sometimes looks like it could do with a bit of a pick me up because it can look a bit dull and grey, and regular readers will know that I’m a huge fan of Superdrug own brand products and I have been trying out the newest of their Optimum range of skincare, PhytoEnergise. Containing Early Boost, an active ingredient, Taurine which is extracted from Seaweed and is said to help revive and pep up the complexion, reducing the signs of tired looking skin. This is Optimum PhytoEnergise 3 in 1 Moisture Balm, Primer and Mask.
This is a 30ml size tube, when I squeezed out some product to apply to my skin I discovered that a little really does go a long way. It smells gorgeous, very fresh fragrance and it’s said that this will give you instant radiance which to be honest I didn’t notice. What I did notice though was the instant hydration and smoothness of my skin. I wanted to give it a go as a primer, so I patted a little extra onto my cheeks where I have large pores, on my chin where I have some old acne scars from my teens, I always hate those. My pores and scars didn’t disappear fully but the two areas looked smoother, and it holds onto my foundation too, rather nicely. I have used it as a mask by just applying it thickly to my skin and leaving it for about 10 minutes then wiped off the excess. I could feel that it’s quite cooling and tingly on my face, and I just loved how soft and smooth my skin felt afterwards too. If I was to criticize this balm in any way I would just say that it needs to be a bigger tube, and I shall be using it only when I wear makeup, for me personally it’s perfect as a hydrating primer.
Right now in Superdrug this is half price, HERE. And also on selected products in the Optimum range of skincare.
Thank you for stopping by and reading today.
