==Boots Time Delay Day Moisturiser==
When boots pump out the £5 off vouchers from the till that can be redeemed against the time delay range I use these to full advantage by paying for this separately in order to get as many vouchers as possible as this represent brilliant money saving and working alongside my 10% professional discount card, it means that I am able to get products at a fraction of the price.
Boots Time Delay Day Moisturiser has an SPF of 8 and is for wrinkle prevention and classed as an anti ageing product and seeing as I have just about started to worry about the signs of ageing on my face I am now stocking up with all sorts of different lotions and potions with the anti ageing name and time will only tell whether these have made any difference to my skin.
The product usually sells for £9.49 pence however at the moment there is a reduction on meaning that it is being sold for £4.49 pence. When I purchased it, I used the £5 voucher and my card getting the product for around £3.49 pence which compared to any day moisturiser is very good value for money.
The pot of cream contains 50 ml of product and is housed within an outer cardboard box and the pot is made of clouded glass with a metallic blue colour screw off lid and metallic blue writing on the side. The outer cardboard box gives all the information but the inside pot has very limited information on so I would suggest keeping the box if you felt you would want to refer back to any of the information at any time.
The pot states that the product is "A light yet indulgent cream blended with out specialist skin protection complex to boost skin's radiance and protect skin against the visible signs of ageing." It also states that you should "Apply every morning after cleansing and toning and avoid direct contact with eyes." This all sounds pretty good but what is the product really like?
==My Overall Opinion==
The product itself is very creamy in colour and doesn't look overly fresh or inviting. The smell that comes off it when taking the lid of is quite sweet and strong and slightly musty. I am not sure if perhaps it is meant to be like this but I am assuming my one hadn't gone out of date like it appeared to!
The moisturiser is rather thick compared to other day creams that I use and I had to double check that I hadn't purchased the night cream by mistake. I hadn't. Just like the directions said I would apply the cream once my face was washed and all fresh by using my finger tips and gently rubbing small amounts in to the skin in a circular motion. I am sure I read somewhere that this is the best way to do it and I am not just doing it for fun!
The smell from the moisturiser seemed to intensify somewhat when application began to the face and to be absolutely honest I can't say that I like the smell in the slightest. However I thought that perhaps it was the anti ageing parts of the cream that smell nasty and persisted with it until the pot was used up.
The cream seemed to last for ages but I guess that was probably just how it felt as I wasn't overly keen on it. I didn't really find any real benefit from using it as my skin appeared just as it normally does even after the month or so of using it continually. I did change from using it in the morning though to using it before bed as I found the cream didn't soak in quick enough for my liking in the morning and overall it did feel like more of a night cream.
So even though I was able to buy this good sized pot of cream at a cheap price I still feel like it was money wasted. I didn't like the smell that the moisturiser had, it didn't look like a nice cream and it didn't really work well for improving the look of my skin or indeed work well as a day cream.
All in all I would say that I will not be buying this cream again although I do like other products from this range, this is not one of them.
A score of 1 out of 5 stars is what I am awarding - because that is the lowest I can give.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
I bought this product as at 22 years of age I feel that I need to do something to prevent wrinkles appearing.Although as I don't consider my skin to be wrinkley(YET) I am very reluctent to spend lots of money on anti wrinkle and firming creams.So when I came across this product in my local boots store not only was I attracted to the fact its a prevention cream(which I feel I should be using at my age rather than trying use anti wrinkle cream) I was also very surprised by the price.
The day cream is light and not too oily, easy to apply and find that it last quite a while.I try to use this product daily and Boots also do a night cream as well.
I love this product and found that it is as good as some of the more expensive anti-wrinkle and anti aging creams.
Boots has been on the high street for decades and we all trust them to deliver good quality cosmetics and toiletries that actually WORK! Since the success of their Protect and Perfect creams there can be no doubt that Boots is dedicated to delivering on their promises.
This Time Delay Wrinkle Prevention Day Cream is no exception. It is light and provides an excellent base for make up. With a pleasant refreshing scent it is a lovely smooth and silky cream to put on before you head out into the world. My skins feel softer and looks more plumped up and nourished. I'm not usually one to advocate the use of one brand for skincare but I really would recommend the Night Cream with accompanies this product. It is packed full of vitamins and useful things to help keep your skin beautiful and plump. Prevention is better than cure and so far this cream has kept my wrinkles at bay!
I was prompted to buy some moisturiser by one of my friends. The conversation went something like this:
"What moisturiser do you use Squiddly?"
"I don't use moisturiser"
"You'll look like a raisin in ten years!!"
The thought of that made me get straight to Boots and look for something to stave off the dried fruit look. I was attracted to this moisturiser, firstly by the packaging, it looks very clinical and tidy, and secondly by the fact that it contains an SPF. It's only factor 8 but I have mediterranean skin so this is ok for me for day to day use. I would always use something stronger if I was out and about but I work inside and am just outside on the drive home so don't get too much sun!
I leave it on my desk at work, I'm usually so idle in the mornings, I get up, go for a run, have a shower, brew and brush my teeth. I just about manage to get dressed before it's time to leave for work so no time for skincare.
When you open the cream, the first thing you notice is the smell. It's sweet and buttery, it smells very rich and really quite tempting. When you put it on, it is light and not greasy at all, it is absorbed well and immediately improved the texture of your skin.
The only criticism I would have is that it leaves "bits" on your skin, if (like me) you are too harried at work to look in the mirror, you will pop to the loo at some stage and think.... how many people have I spoken to looking like someone has sneezed on me!!??
I think these "bits" are a result of what they use to improve the radiance of your skin. Improvements in radiance are mentioned on the back of the jar and as these "bits" look a bit silvery, I can only put it down to that. It's a shame because it spoils what is otherwise a lovely product.
Recommended but be warned!
I never stick to one moisturiser for long as I like to see what's out there... Boots skincare seems to have a good reputation (I guess I'm thinking primarily of their infamous Protect and Perfect serum) so I thought I'd give this a go.
It costs £9.29, and comes in a rather attractive glass jar with an electic blue, shiny lid; the overall impression being that it's quite high end and classy, as well as being modern (or even a little bit space age?!) I've noticed an increase in the use of glass jars being used for moisturisers - is this so that we feel something nice and heavy in our shopping bags and will be convinced that our money has been well spent? If this was in plastic it would weigh hardly anything!)
The first thing I noticed was the scent - most face creams have a pleasant, if one-dimensional fragrance. This is more like a full on perfume - very complex indeed for a moisturiser. It's almost caramel / toffee scented - yummy!
This cream is perfectly pleasant to use and adequate as a face cream - it leaves my skin feeling soft and supple. It's a nice fluffy buttery texture and feels quite light. It also absorbs quickly so your face isn't left feeling greasy.
However, it does have one very annoying feature. No matter how lightly I massage this into my face, it results in little beads of (cream? skin? lint?) forming. I don't know how else to describe it. So after using this, I have to then brush off my face for little BITS. I don't know if this always happens or if I have a duff jar, but it's the reason I won't repurchase an otherwise great product.
