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.

GOSH Brow Shape and Fill plus the Mix and Fix Blender Brush….

Hello welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I’ve got a couple more GOSH Copenhagen products for you, they were sent to me for reviewing here on EAB.

Shall I start with the brush you see before you? It’s the Mix and Fix Blender Brush. This flat-headed face brush is unique I feel. I’ve never seen such a brush before, I’ve seen many flat-headed brushes but not one with a “well” in the middle! The brush itself is 100% synthetic hair so is vegan friendly. So why is there a hole or well in the centre of the brush? This brush is perfect to use for mixing foundation shades or to add a facial oil to foundation. You simply place the products you want to mix together into the hole then apply to the face as usual. I actually trialed the brush by mixing my foundation (from another brand, I don’t have a GOSH one) with my GOSH Lumi Drops and applied to my face. The brush is great for blending, and with a head that is small enough to get around the contours of the eyes and soft enough for under the eyes it leaves my skin looking great with a flawless coverage of foundation, and it doesn’t feel like it’s scratching my skin at all, also another plus, there is no brush hair fallout either while I was applying to my face or when I washed it either. This is a really great addition to my brush collection, and one that will get used rather a lot I suspect. You can get this and more fantastic GOSH products from Superdrug on the High Street or online HERE.

The last GOSH Copenhagen product I’m sharing with you is one for the eye brows. I’m not really an eye brow person to be honest, but I’m learning and Brow Shape and Fill is really helping me to get on track. It’s a double ended product, with a retractable pencil at one end and powder with sponge applicator at the other end. The pencil end is for shaping the brows, I found it to be a hard pencil while I was applying it but not at all difficult to work with. It’s a slanted shaped pencil which helps with the application using those light feathery types strokes! Filling in is really easy with the powder and sponge tip applicator, it completely covers the odd grey eyebrow hairs that are appearing more regularly now. You can apply the powder as light or as heavy as you like to get the coverage you want. I comb through my brows with a spoolie after applying to distribute the colour evenly. The GOSH Brow Shape and Fill is great for those days when you need to be quick with your makeup, using just the powder to fill in the brows which is in fact how I like to use this product. Get the GOSH Brow Shape and Fill from Superdrug on the High Street or online HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today.

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.
