This Works is a British Company founded in 2003 to create natural products that deliver exceptional results.
Based in the UK the company work with British famers and use organically grown products where possible.
All the packaging is recyclable and none of the ingredients are tested on animals.
They claim only to make products that deliver exceptional results and that truly deserve the name This Works.
This particular product is part of their Skin Deep range, which contains ingredients that have anti-ageing properties.
I read about Skin Deep Youth Elixir in a magazine and was intrigued as I haven't come across many body products aimed at ageing skin.
This sounded like something that would improve the look and feel of my skin so I decided to give it a try on my arms as they looked like they needed some help.
This comes in a plastic pump action container that has a stopper on that you can use to stop leakage if you transport this. Not the most practical solution as I lost this, but luckily it did not leak on my travels.
This is a serum that you apply on a daily basis to your skin. To be honest the instructions are fairly minimal and do not specify how much to apply and whether you put this under or over body moisturiser.
I decided to use it before moisturiser and dispensed a couple of pumps and then applied on my arm. I found that you only need a small amount and that the product absorbs very quickly.
I didn't actually feel like I needed a moisturiser on top as after applying my skin felt really silky and hydrated. Best of all it looked much better than when I simply use a body moisturiser and I really felt like it toned my arms and improved the look, especially after I had used this for a few days.
It smells divine, a lovely natural organic plant fragrance that smells fresh and clean and really lifts the spirits but is also quite calming and soothing. Quite addictive really and I looked forward to applying this after my morning shower and I also applied before going to bed.
I have sensitive skin and this didn't irritate in any way.
This contains aloe and camomile plus rose and patchouli bergamot and clary sage which combined have anti-oxidant collagen boosting properties that go to work on wrinkles and suppleness as well as moisturising skin.
I don't have wrinkly arms yet, but they are starting to show signs of age and are not as supple as they used to be. That is partly due to my age, but also my skin suffered when I was really ill and I lost weight rapidly.
This product has made my skin look much better and made me feel more confident about exposing my arms. It can be used anywhere on the body, but I mainly use this on my arms. It also got rid of those tiny bumps that appear on the back of arms, but I don't think it would stretch to getting rid of bingo wings!
What I love about this is that it does deliver results and really improves the look and feel of skin, it smells wonderful and the fragrance really assaults my senses and every time I use this it makes me feel better.
The only downside for me is the hefty price tag as this costs £38 for 120ml which is rather expensive. You don't need to use much but even so this is a considered purchase.
I spent a significant amount of time surfing to find the best deal I could on this and at the time I purchased I received a discount, plus a free pack which contained products worth £25 plus I purchased via a cash back site. It took a while and I almost needed a spread sheet to work out the best deal, but it was worth spending the time.
There are several deals on at the moment and you can buy this with a full size anti-ageing hand cream for the same price , plus get a free gift from the This Works website ( I am tempted) or cheapest is £31.97 from Amazon. Boots were offering £5 off plus advantage points, so it is worth shopping around.
My advice would be to go with the offers where you get other products as I have been really impressed with everything I have used from This Works so far.
This is a quality product that absorbs really quickly into skin but has a combination of powerful ingredients that enhance the look and feel of skin from the first application and the results continue the more you use this. Perfect for getting your skin looking better before a holiday. Also great for improving texture and making skin look more toned.
I also found that this really calmed my skin after I overdid it in the sun one day and managed to develop some nasty red stripes at the top of my arms where I missed a bit when I applied my sun cream.
This is a relatively new product in their range and it has received rave reviews. The name suggests it is a youth elixir which conjures up images of sorcery and I do think it lives up to the name as it did work some magic on me. I recommend this to anyone as I think it will enhance skin young and old and you will see a difference after the first application.
