Beauty Review: Skin Care Choices for Mature Skin

I’ve got a brand new Beauty Babe reviewing some products on my blog today… Cara’s mom!

When Kath gave me these anti aging products I thought of an article I read recently about 20-somethings writing anti-aging reviews and how irrelevant they are as the most wrinkles I have are fine forehead lines and very slight crows feet.

That being said I knew exactly who could review these products and do them justice: My 56 year old beautician mom!

Here are her thoughts:


L’Oreal Age Perfect Golden Age

I tried out three L’Oreal products from this range. Even though I am younger than this range recommends, but as the saying goes “Prevention is better than cure” so here goes…

The packaging is a lovely rose gold, with big writing and instructions so this definitely helps, no need to bring the magnifiers out!!

L’Oreal Age Perfect Golden Age Glow Re-Activating Essence is a glittery gorgeous pinky 125ml liquid/serum. I cleansed and toned my skin and then applied the essence one to two drops patting it in to my face and neck, the essence prepared my skin to accept the active ingredients of the day crème, it hydrates and improved the texture of my skin I liked the fact that it is not at all oily, and therefore penetrated almost immediately.

Next I applied the L’oreal Age Perfect Golden Age Glow Day Crème, the crème has a rose tint to it and after application my skin feels super hydrated, the crème was absorbed quickly and makes a great makeup base.

After a full day I removed my make up and applied the L’oreal Age Perfect Golden Age Glow Night Crème all over my face and neck. The colour of this crème is white and the texture is creamier than the day crème, I felt it took a little longer to be absorbed, but I didn’t mind as nothing was to be applied on top.

All three of L’Oreal Age Perfect Golden Age Glow products hydrate and firm and after continual use my skin feels firmer, and a healthier glow, which gets better with each day of use. The products all have their own individual and very pleasant scent, I definitely recommend using this range.


Decleor Prolagene Lift

Decleor is made in France, so I already knew it would be a superior product. I used the product for two weeks, and really enjoyed being pampered by this crème.

Decleor Prolagene Lift and Firm Day Crème is pure luxury for my skin, from the subtle fragrance, the soothing colour to the following benefits it is giving my skin, rejuvenation, wrinkles are plumped out due to the action of hyaluronic acid, my skin looks so much more radiant, and an added bonus it is a great make up base.

There are no parabens or mineral oils in this day crème. Definitely a crème to be used again and again, I would love to try more Decléor products especially Prolagene Lift Brighten Eye Crème.
