I received all these lovely No 7 goodies right before Christmas and have used most of them on several occasions. I now feel I can give an honest tried and tested review on most of the products.
One thing I have learned and wish I had done earlier, is use cleanser and toner. Yes it is quick and easy (and cheaper) to just take your make-up off with baby wipes. After using No7 Soft & Soothed Gentle Cleanser and No7 Soft & Soothed Gentle Toner, there is no way I will be going back. 3 months on and my skin is looking a lot better, I rarely have a spot breakout and my skin is generally looking brighter and smoother. These are for dry/normal skin, but they also have the choice for oily/combination skin type. Even if I don’t have any make-up on I use it before I go to bed.
I didn’t find the day cream moisturiser extraordinary. I have very dry skin so 30 minutes later it would start feeling quite dry again, it has a very light texture to it. I tend to use the No7 Essential Moisture Night Cream instead as it is quite a bit thicker and will last most of the day.
One product that I am a massive fan of is the No7 Heavenly Hydration Moisture Mask. I couldn’t recommend this stuff enough, especially if you are prone to dry skin. You can either apply a generous amount to your skin and leave on for about 10 minutes before rubbing off with tissue. Or you can leave a thin layer overnight.
The No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum was voted Product of the Year 2010 by the Consumer Survey of Product Innovation and I can see why. Although I may not be in the typical consumer group for this product (being 25) I do feel you should start early on anti ageing products especially if you have been an avid sun lover and/or smoker over the years. It restores the skin elasticity and you should see results within 4 weeks. I really do love this product and I feel instant result in the appearance of the skin each time I use.
One product I am looking forward to using for my holiday in 2 weeks is No7 Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser. I have already tried on a couple of times and I am very pleased. I hate not wearing any kind of foundation, but when I am in hot climates it melts and feels heavy on your skin. This product has a slight foundation tint to it, moisturises and contains 5-Star UVA protection & SPF15. I think this should be in every women’s handbag and a complete holiday essential.
Apart from the day cream, there wasn’t one product I was unhappy with and No7 will be my first choice for quite a few future purchases for skincare.
Carry on the good work No7
