Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Regenerating Night Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Regenerating Night Cream which I’ve been using since early August. This night cream promises…to renew the skin’s youthful look, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and to exfoliate, smooth and brighten the skin. It further claims that “over time, skin will appear revitalised and younger with reduced visible signs of fatigue.”

First thing, this night cream has been repackaged (probably why I found it at B&M Bargains in the first place). However, I checked the ingredients, and the formula is still the exact same one – with niacinamide being the 4th 😍 ingredient.

Now onto the product! After almost 2 months of using this night cream, there’s no doubt that I’m blown away. The cream feels silky, and it makes my skin feel silky. It provides the perfect amount of hydration regardless of how much sleep I get – it doesn’t make my skin feel dry or greasy at any point. That’s how I know that my skin loves it!

What else? My skin has gotten brighter this summer – I believe the majority of the credit actually goes to another product, but this beautiful night cream makes me wake up to bright and refreshed looking skin, so there’s no doubt it’s a major contributor to my skin’s current great look and feel.

Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Regenerating Night Cream is available as 50ml. It’s usually around £30, but Tesco has it for half price with Tesco Clubcard (not sure for how long though). I paid a ridiculous £8 for it (so I bought 2 of these night creams when I found them at B&M Bargains).

Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Day Cream With SPF 25

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Day Cream With SPF 25 which I’ve been using since some time in May. This day cream contains 1% retinol, hyaluronic acid and green tea extract. And it promises to fight visible signs of ageing by firming and boosting skin texture, improving the appearance of fine lines and helping to prevent premature ageing.

Since I’ve been using this day cream for well over a month now, I can safely say that it’s great. This day cream is rich and hydrating, it feels good on my skin, and it plays amazingly well with my foundation. I’m enjoying it so much!

I can’t comment on whether it would blur lines and wrinkles. Since I’ve always drenched my skin in creams, oils and lotions, I don’t have any real lines or wrinkles. I guess I can actually thank my skin for being very dry and moody since this is what prompted me to moisturise like a maniac for the past 2 decades.

To sum it up, I think this is an amazing day cream! Based on my experience, I’d recommend it to everyone. And priced at £3, this day cream is ridiculously cheap! If you’re interested, Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Day Cream With SPF 25 is available as 50ml at Poundland! Also, on the back of the carton, it says that this day cream is cruelty-free and suitable for vegans! 😍

Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Night Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Night Cream which I’ve been using since the end of April.

This night cream contains 1% retinyl palmitate, hyaluronic acid, green tea extract and shea butter. It promises to fight the signs of ageing, to hydrate and regenerate the skin, and to improve the skin’s elasticity. The result is firmer and younger looking skin.

I like this night cream a lot. I’m definitely impressed by it! I love how nourishing it is. It’s perfect for my dry skin. I also like the gentle formula. I haven’t experienced any issues. Au contraire! Thanks to this night cream, I’m waking up to refreshed and well-rested looking skin – even though I often sleep less than 5 hours.

I cannot comment on how well this night cream fights visible signs of ageing. I’ve always taken great care of my skin, and I wouldn’t expect any single new product to outperform every other skin care product I’m using (or have used in the past).

In any event, based on my experience, I’d recommend this night cream. Priced at £3, the 50ml tub is a total steal! This is quite possibly the cheapest retinol night cream. So if you’re on a budget, you might want to check out this product! Always make sure you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients, and keep in mind that retinol makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so sunscreen is a must for your day skin care if you go out. What else? Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Night Cream is also suitable for vegans – what’s not to like?

Cellio It’s True Honey Moisture Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Cellio It’s True Honey Moisture Cream which I’ve been using as a day and night cream since January. This is a product from Korea, and it promises to hydrate and to nourish the skin. It contains honey extract, macadamia seed oil, aloe leaf juice, vitamin E, etc.

I think this is a very good face cream. It feels light on the skin, but it’s deeply nourishing. It makes my skin feel super soft without clogging any pores. It’s richer than Cellio’s acai berry face cream. And I think it’s perfect for people with dry skin that’s prone to breakouts!

Another added bonus is the subtle honey fragrance. It’s very nice. And I’m happy to report that this face cream works well with all the other products I’m using on my face – serum, face mist, foundation, etc.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this product. If you’re interested, Cellio It’s True Acai Berry Moisture Cream is available as 90ml. I paid £9.99 (TK Maxx).

Yves Rocher Riche Crème Day / Night Care Intense Regenerating Care

Hi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher Riche Crème Day / Night Care Intense Regenerating Care. This face cream contains 30 precious oils, rose oil among them, and it promises to smooth out wrinkles and to make skin feel soft and silky. This face cream is aimed at mature skin types, but I had a free sample, so why would I not use it?

I’ve used this face cream as a night cream, and I liked it a lot. I loved the texture – it felt rich and light at the same time, and it felt great on my skin. The next day I woke up to rested looking skin that felt perfectly soft and silky! My review is based on a single use of this face cream, but this little sample made me curious about the product!

Yves Rocher Riche Crème Day / Night Care Intense Regenerating Care is available as 75ml for just under 40 EUR.

Cellio It’s True Acai Berry Moisture Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Cellio It’s True Acai Berry Moisture Cream. This product from Korea promises to hydrate skin for a youthful look. I’ve been using this moisturiser twice a day since mid-October, and here’s what I think!

Whilst I think this isn’t the perfect moisturiser for my skin type (very dry and moody), I still think it’s very good. This moisturiser has a beautiful, subtle, floral scent. The formula is best described as a typical light day cream which would be most suited for normal to oily skin types.

The moisturiser feels very hydrating, but not greasy at all. At night time, I mix it with a drop of facial oil to make it perfect for my skin. But this won’t be necessary for other skin types. I’ve also noticed that this moisturiser plays well with make-up – there’s no smudging, and no balling-up, so I have no reason to complain!

All in all, I’m really happy that I bought this wonderful little moisturiser. And yes, I’d recommend it (unless you’re allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients, of course). Cellio It’s True Acai Berry Moisture Cream is available as 90ml. I paid £8 (TK Maxx).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum which is aimed at people with dry and mature skin. This oil serum promises intense hydration for soft and radiant skin.

This serum oil is actually an oil blend – it contains a number of certified organic oils such as black seed, rosehip, jojoba, argan, etc. and vitamin E. On the pack it reads that these oils are rich in vitamin C, and that the oil blend is lightweight. People with dry skin are supposed to use the oil twice daily, all other skin types just in the morning.

I’ve been using this facial oil on and off for a over a month now, and I think it’s amazing. It works absolute wonders for dry skin! 😍 And the natural ingredients are just wow!

Having said this, the oil is not lightweight at all – it’s incredibly rich, and if I use it every day, my skin will break out – I know because this happened to me within a week of using this product. I now use it 3-4 times a week, and this is the perfect dose for glowing skin. (It is for me, it might be different for you.)

All in all, I love this product, and I will continue to use it. And based on my experience, I’d recommend it to everyone with dry skin. Just check the label to make sure you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients.

Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum is available as 30ml. I paid £5.99 (TK Maxx). This product is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

Boots No. 7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots No. 7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil which I’ve been using since June.

This facial oil with jojoba oil and retinyl palmitate is one of the core pieces of the No. 7 skin care collection.

It promises to give dry skin the boot and to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. The product page on Boots’ website says “turn back the clock” and “say bye-bye to dry and dehydrated skin…” Well, OK then!

When I started to use this facial oil, I didn’t believe that it would live up to its promises. I didn’t like it for the first few days, and I didn’t think it was rich enough. However, I kept using it, and after about 10 days, I found that it that killed off the 2 eczema patches which I’ve had for a few months now.

I’ve tried other products, and some did help with the eczema. But this facial oil has really gone the extra mile for my skin. I’m glad I continued to use it even though I was sceptical at first.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this facial oil. It’s a non-greasy formula, so you might be thinking it’s not rich enough for dry skin. But it actually is rich and deeply hyrating. I will buy it again, no doubt!

Boots No. 7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil is available as 30ml for £23. Smaller 15ml bottles are usually available as part of seasonal gift sets.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Aqua Rising Argan Gelato Steam Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Elizavecca Milky Piggy Aqua Rising Argan Gelato Steam Cream which I’ve been using for a few weeks now. This product contains a number of great ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and a number of botanical extracts. Sounds good!

This face cream has a lovely and subtle floral fragrance. Its texture feels waxy – but it changes to thick-yet-watery as soon as it’s applied to the skin. I cannot really describe the change of texture any better, but it feels like the wax is turning to water on your skin. At the same time it still feels rich and deeply nourishing. This is definitely unique!

I’m also very happy with the level of hydration my skin is getting from this face cream. My skin looks nice and plump, and whilst the look and sound of the cream made me a bit cautious (if your skin has ever reacted badly to a product, you know what I mean), I’m happy to report that the face cream is super gentle on my skin. This is one of my favourite products this month for sure!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face cream to everyone with normal to dry skin. However, always check the ingredients to make sure a product is suitable for you, and if in doubt, please do a patch test!

And about Elizavecca products – when you buy those, please be careful. There are lots of fakes out there – some more obvious than others. Please only buy from reputable sellers. If the product isn’t sealed or the spelling is funny (i.e cosmetiocs), get a refund and always report the seller as it’s quite possible that they sit on a large quantity of counterfeit stock which they will continue to sell.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Aqua Rising Argan Gelato Steam Cream is available as 100g. I paid £9.99 at TK Maxx.
