Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum
Advantages: Reduces fine lines improves radiance of your skin
Serums - I used to think they were an unnecessary addition to my beauty regime, this product, however, has changed my opinion.
The product forms part of the Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Range. I purchased a 30ml, glass bottle of the product for £23. The range is often on 3 for 2, so this makes it better value. The Product comes in a glass bottle with a pull off lid that is easy to use. The serum is dispensed via a pump action mechanism that releases about a pea sized amount of the product per pump. The serum is slightly grey in colour, fairly light in texture and does not really have a discerning smell.
The product claims to restore skins structure and appearance. The product as been,
"Independently proven to restore the skin's structure, visibly improving deep lines and wrinkles by up to 50% with regular use. The first product proven to restore the skin's structure with prolonged use. So effective that other people can see a significant visible improvement in your deep lines and wrinkles" (Boots website).
The serum also helps to improve skins radiance and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by up to 50% in 4 weeks.
The product is Hypo-allergenic and Dermalogically tested.
To use the product I cleanse my face/neck and apply 4 pumps of the product to my face and neck day and night. I then follow up with a day or night moisturizer. The product sinks well to my skin, and feels light and refreshing, not sticky or heavy and it dries slightly matte, as I have oily skin.
The products ingredients are:
Cyclopentasiloxane, aqua (water, eau), butylene glycol, Dimethicone crosspolymer, Cyclohexasiloxane, Glycerine, Arabinogalactan, Sodium ascorbyl phosphate, Magnesium sulphate, Dimethicone copolyol, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium PCA, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 dimethicone, Hexyl laurate, Polyglyceryl-4 isosterarate, Retinyl palmitate, Medicago sativa (Alfalfa) extract, Methylparaben, Propylene glycol, Lupinus albus seed extract, Butylparaben, Ethyparaben, Carbomer, Propylparaben, Isobtylparaben, Polysorbate 20, Panax ginseng root extract, Morus alba leaf extract, Tocopherol, Palmityl ologopeptide, Palmitoyl tetrapeptide -7.
So does it work? - Yes, I have been using the serum for over a year now and my skin is softer, more radiant, my very fine wrinkles seem to be reduced and overall the surface of my skin feels renewed. I have combination skin, that is quite sensitive and I have never had any problems. I have also started using the serum on me décolletage area, and it has definitely improved the fine lines. Overall, I would recommend this serum to others, as it really does work, it may be a little pricey, but I think its well worth adding to your arsenal of anti ageing products.
Summary: Great product that really works
