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.

Totally Tropical Body Mists from Superdrug….Staying with Summer in Autumn!

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

As much as I love the cooler months of the year (Spring is actually my favourite season) Christmas is a coming and Strictly Come Dancing is on the television, it’s just gorgeous to snuggle up with a cup of hot chocolate at this time of year. But saying that I do love the fruity zesty fragrances that the warmer weather brings us. I was introduced to two beautiful tropical fragrances in the form of a body mist that is currently at Superdrug in store and online, to give me a bit of fruity luxury in the Autumn and Winter time, right through Christmas and New Year too. The first fragrance is Pink Tropic.

I just love the pink packaging! I love the shape of the bottle, I love the gold coloured top too, which gives it a more expensive look. This is definitely a body mist, the spray is so light it doesn’t leave the skin dripping wet with the fragrance like a lot of body mists do. As for the gorgeous fragrance of Crushed Pineapple and Coconut it really does leave your skin smelling fresh and sweet, but after spraying on the body it doesn’t leave it dry just really quite moisturised, which is due to the added castor oil I would think. I also sprayed the body mist on my legs after shaving, and it didn’t sting! If you want a bit of tropical Summer nights in Autumn, in a fragrance try this one HERE.

Although my favourite colour is pink, my favourite of these two body mists is this one Aqua Haze. It’s more fruity and zesty which is what I love in any fragrance. It’s tangy lemon, crisp sharp apple and sweet ripe pear. This lasted longer on my skin than the first one to be perfectly honest with you, it does have a stronger fragrance, but it still feels as though it’s moisturising and not drying the skin out if I choose not to use body lotion. You can find this beautiful body mist just HERE.

Right now at Superdrug there is Double points on selected Christmas gifting and you can save up to half price on Selected Christmas gifting.

Thank you for stopping by.

Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser…..Review

Hey beauty lovers welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

I have been buying this product for ages and ages, and I have never ever written a review to say why I re-purchase. This is a Superdrug own brand and it’s from the Naturally Radiant range this is the Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. By the way I did purchase this myself with my own money.

Enriched with glorious Cocoa Butter and infused with skin brightening ingredients such as Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry extracts which helps to perk up the skins radiance and even out skin tone. The Kiwi fruit is a rich source of Vitamin C which helps with the brightening effects of the skin and also helps with protecting the skin against free radicals, along with the Mulberry to help with the toning down of discolouration.

The Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser is a very thick cream, so thick in fact you really do need to squeeze the tube to dispense the product. It smells gorgeous, a lovely fresh and fruity fragrance that wakens up the senses when I use it in the morning, it removes the last of my makeup when I use in the evening time as a second cleanse too. I use a 10p size amount of product and massage really well over my face and gently over my eyes, just in case I haven’t removed all mascara in the first cleanse. I then wet the muslin cloth that is supplied with the cleanser and work across my face to remove all traces of product. Afterwards my skin is so clean and soft and the muslin cloth has given me a bit of exfoliation. A really fabulous cleanser that I continue to use on a regular basis. It’s my go to cleanser when I’m sent products to review because I know I can get my skin deep down clean ready to take on new product. Love, Love, Love!

The Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser from Superdrug is on offer right now HERE. I’m going to be stocking up! Thank you for reading.

Oh My GOSH, New Makeup!

Hello lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

I have wanted to try GOSH Copenhagen makeup for ages, so I let out a little squeal (a loud little squeal) when GOSH sent me a few products to try.

I’m sharing with you the GOSH Strobe n Glow Kit in Highlight, GOSH Lumi Drops in Gold and the GOSH Eyeshadow Primer. Now, to be honest I am not and never will be a big strobe/highlight fan. I like to add a subtle glow to my makeup rather than go for all out strobing, that’s just my preference, and with both these GOSH illuminating products you can use them in a subtle way or go for all out highlighting and strobing. The Strobe n Glow Kit in Highlight is a 4 in 1 powder highlight and blush palette, each 1/4 is a different product, with a white gold highlighter, and three golden toned bronzers to define. So buttery soft in texture with beautiful colour pay off and they all blend so well, I only had to just dip my brush in once to get the payoff I wanted, of course it’s buildable to the intensity you like. I applied to my face after powdering, and found it lasted me until I took my makeup off that evening. The Strobe n Glow kit from GOSH is the perfect addition for my makeup collection, it will more than likely get me into highlighting more. You can find the Strobe n Glow at Superdrug on the High Street, or online HERE.

Now, the gorgeous Lumi Drops from GOSH are stunning! I have the oh so pretty Gold colour. Lumi Drops is a liquid highlighter and it’s a multi tasking product, I believe. You can wear it on it’s own on bare skin to give yourself a gorgeous golden glow to the complexion, mix it with your foundation for a pretty dewy effect. Use it on top of your foundation to add a healthy looking luminosity to the skin. Simply use it only on certain places on the face to highlight, ie top of cheekbones, through the brow bone to finish of your eye look and don’t forget the cupids bow to help make your lips appear fuller. I used Lumi Drops on the top of my cheek bones and with just a tiny amount on my cupids bow. It does just lift the look of my makeup without making my face appear shiny and oily looking. I think Lumi Drops will be fabulous for the coming Christmas party season (Did I just us the “C” word?) when we all get out or LBD’s you can pop Lumi Drops on the collarbone for a gorgeous glow and tops of the shoulders too! You can find Lumi Drops in more shades too, check out Superdrug on the High Street, or online HERE.

Lastly, for now anyway I have the GOSH Copenhagen Eyeshadow Primer. This product I have really fallen in love with, oh my Gosh it’s fab! A gorgeous nude shade eye shadow primer that will even out the skin-tone which is great for me due to the darkening of my eyelids as I’ve got older. It’s waterproof so making it sweat proof too which was great during the hot Summer days we had a few weeks ago! I have oily eyelids and it helped keep my eyeshadow in place without creasing. It’s very easy to apply from the stick then blend with the sponge tip smudger. I have loved to use it all over my lid up to the brow bone, apply a touch of mascara for a no makeup look, It just makes the skin on the eye area look smoothed and eyes more awake when you want to go bare faced. This is a really lovely product and one I shall be re-purchasing. You can find the GOSH Eyeshadow Primer in Superdrug on the High Street and online HERE.

I have a couple more products from GOSH to share with you very soon, and there is few more products I want to try too. Thank you for stopping by today.
