Review Of Exuviance’s Age Reverse Day Repair

Hey Lovelies!

Keep the dreaded age factor at bay with the help of this incredible product by world-renowned brand, Exuviance. After testing many products by medical product brand, NesoStrata, I was introduced to their sister brand, Exuviance. The range includes the same innovative ingredients, coupled with botanicals and delivers truly remarkable results. Exuviance’s Retexturing Treatment is outstanding; thus, I couldn’t wait to review their Age Reverse Day Repair. Combining key proven ingredients to prohibit the onset of aging, this facial treatment is massively impressive!

Included in Exuviance’s Age Reverse Day Repair SPF30 is a powerful Triple Firming Complex of NeoGlucosamine, retinol and peptides. These work in unison with an exceptional complex of antioxidants, such as pomegranate and vitamins A & E. This specifically formulated product results in not only preventing the progression of aging on the skin; but, has even been shown to actually reverse some of these pesky signs that sadly greet you with age. Ha, ha, take that, time!

No matter how many signs of aging concern you, this formula works like a trojan to target and quickly deal with them. Here’s how it works:

1.UV Filters

UV filters combined offer vital protection for your skin, preventing the affliction of any further damage.

2.Triple Antioxidant Complex

This formula contains a potent solution of highly effective antioxidants. The pomegranate vitamins A & E thwart free radicals with super-warrior strength. Furthermore, they spark off the repair process with speed.

3.Triple Firming Complex:

In the mission to tackle aging, certain key ingredients are essential. Exuviance’s peptides, retinol and NeoGlucosamine (a non-amino sugar) have been clinically proven to significantly reduce signs of aging and greatly improve the condition of skin.

Their special formulation works by triggering collagen and elastin production. The outcome is a firmer, more plump and smoother complexion, with far fewer noticeable wrinkles. Even deeper and more stubborn wrinkles are reached.

Nearer the skin’s surface, a precise combination of retinol and NeoGlucosamine successfully treats the skin. Gentle, yet effective exfoliation takes place; thus, allowing for cell renewal. Next, uneven patches, age spots and discolouration are addressed and diminished. When you look in the mirror, expect a beautiful rejuvenated reflection, coupled with gasps of sheer joy!

I LOVE this treatment. Thank you Exuviance. Total genius.

Want True Anti-Aging Products? Here’s What You Need To Look For

Hey Lovelies!

Of course, we want anti-aging products that actually deliver! Christ, anything that means the Botox clinic can wait a while longer is worth a shot, right? The amount of anti-aging products around is enough to send the most well-informed peoples’ heads in a spin.

Well, lovely people, here are the key, proven ingredients and some amazing brands that provide optimal results.

1.B3 (Niacinamide) Try: The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, £5, www.boots.com

Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) is all-important when it comes to maintaining that much sought-after youthful complexion – and yet it is regularly over-looked. Fantastic for locking in moisture and strengthening the skin’s barrier, the water-soluble vitamin even helps to diminish inflammation and thus, any redness too. Studies have shown this component to aid in smoothing out fine lines and significantly repair the skin. Additionally, niacinamide is a great warrior against the dreaded acne attack. I love The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%.

2.Astaxanthin. Try: DHC Astaxanthin Collagen All-in-One Gel, $49, www.dhcare.com

Seriously, is there nothing this antioxidant can’t do? Think of the crazy-good component as your secret weapon against environmental and UV damage. Sourced from freshwater algae, it is 6,000 times more effective than vitamin C. Japanese skincare brand, DHC’s Astaxanthin Collagen All-In-One Gel, $49 (www.dhcare.com) offers immediate absorption and is combined with collagen, vitamin E and sodium hyaluronate to further firm, smooth and nourish.

3.Vitamin C. Try: SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, £114.95, www.facthefuture.com

Whilst astaxanthin has well and truly proven it can beat vitamin C in a Pepsi challenge when it comes to fighting a UV onslaught, it is still kind of vital if you want your collagen levels to be top notch. It is also great friends with vitamin E, greatly supporting its efficacy in fighting free radical damage. A great vitamin C serum is SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic.

4.Retinol (Of Course) Try: Esthederm’s Intensive Retinol Serum, £49, www.facethefuture.co.uk

Widely considered as everyone beauty obsessives’ Mecca, this is the go-to anti-aging component for most. Extensive studies prove its supreme worth in combatting the globally hated skin consequences that come with stocking up the years. Age, we hate you, but you will not defeat us!

When you use retinol, you can expect improved collagen production, prevent pigmentation, smooth the skin and minimize the appearance of pores. But (and it’s a big BUT), care should be taken as the ingredient does increase sun sensitivity. Therefore, it is better to apply at night and remember your SPF during the day. This is a product that has to be used consistently. Newbies to retinol should build up dosage gradually as reactions can occur. I am totally obsessed with Esthederm’s Retinol.

4.AHAs/BHAs And Peptides. Try: Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging 10% AHA Exfoliant, £29.75, www.paulaschoice.co.uk

Using an exfoliator is so important when it comes to cell renewal and staving off the aging process. AHA and BHAs means dead skin cells are removed, taking along with it, that unwanted dry and dull complexion. Silky softness? I think so!

We need to be fully armed when going up against the mighty age factor. This means skin-repairing and rejuvenating peptides (from amino acids) are a must. Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging 10% AHA Exfoliant, £29.75 (www.paulaschoice.co.uk) combines 4 AHAs, BHA (salicylic acid) together with an array of antioxidants and peptides that provide the ultimate result.

5.SPF

Scientifically proven to offer huge anti-aging abilities, SPFs are ESSENTIAL in maintaining that youthful complexion by fully protecting your skin. Look for an SPF that provides UVA and UVB protection and at least SPF30. Remember that you should apply this every day, no matter what the weather.

6.Vitamin E. Try Superdrug’s Vitamin E, £3.49, www.superdrug.com

Last but not least is vitamin E. The antioxidant is well-known for its protective and reparative properties. Recognised for its ability to fight free radical damage, healing the skin and reducing inflammation, this little gem works a treat. I adore Superdrug’s Vitamin E Radiance, £3.49, www.superdrug.com

 

 

Discover The Best Camouflage Makeup Around: Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover

Hey Lovelies!

I was recently given Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup for Face and Body to try. This concealer makeup provides the ultimate coverage. Literally transforming the look of my skin, it allows me to wear pretty much whatever summer clothes I choose without feeling self-conscious at all (well, to a point anyway). Discover why Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover is the best camouflage makeup around.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup for Face and Body SPF15, £33.50 (30ml), www.esteelauder.com

Okay, here’s the deal: should you have acne scars, age spots, blemishes, bruises, pigmentation, sun spots, varicose veins, or basically any imperfection (let’ face it, who the HELL doesn’t?) that you wish to conceal, this is a must-have product. Gone are the days where you opt for tights or trousers and a day that is too el scorchio for words, for fear of displaying those imperfections. Thank you, Estee Lauder – you are a true hero brand!

For Body:

This liquid formula works incredibly well on the body. Making fast work of hiding away all imperfections, the product can even be used post-surgery. It offers a natural-looking matte finish that is both water-proof and will last all day without the worry of streaking. One point I should make is DO NOT apply this without a blender / blending brush. For this I chose my fave blending tool ever – Iconic London’s Blender. Do not make the mistake of thinking it will be fine without one – a blending tool is vital!

For Face:

Available in 14 different shades, this makeup is a true colour matching gem. I opted for the shade, Dawn. The liquid cover blends in seamlessly and achieves flawless results you will love. My skin is quite dry, and I have enlarged pores. Should anyone else suffer a similar fate, my advice is to thoroughly moisturise with a hydrating formula pre-application, also adding a primer. Additionally, you should be applying the product to your face with your blender too. Failure to follow those steps will result in a shabby-looking finish that looks worse (i.e cakey or exaggerated pores) rather than better. Also, you may not notice this until you step outside (and happen to have a pocket mirror with you)!

Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover contains aloe leaf to nourish and sooth, soybean oil (to neutralise free radicals) and vitamin E to further protect.

In summary, Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover is awesome!

Has anyone else tried this amazing product and what are your thoughts? Leave me a message in the comments below. Have a great week people!
