May Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month. This means that, today, I’m going to tell you which products I loved the most in May. I picked my top 3 from all the products I reviewed this month. And there are a few honourable mentions as well. Let’s start with the top 3!

3rd place – Beauty Formulas Detoxifying Bubble Sheet Mask

This is the most effective bubble sheet mask I’ve ever tried. Priced at £1, this is also one of the cheapest bubble sheet masks out there!

Runner-Up – Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream & Night Cream

Boots did an amazing job with these 2 No 7 products. I enjoyed using the day cream as well as the night cream. And I’m looking forward to using the full sizes!

WINNER – Maxbrands Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask

This face mask has set new standards. This is the most effective peel-off mask I’ve ever used. If you’re using nose strips and you think they’re not good enough, you should give this mask a try!

Onto the honourable mentions! Treacle Moon’s Marshmallow Hearts Shower & Bath Gel is simply amazing. My skin loves Fascy’s Bubble Tina Aqua Mask and The Crème Shop’s Last Christmas “Naughty” Energy Boost Face Mask.

Primark’s PS… Purifying Rinse Off Mask With Red Clay was a nice surprise, and Palmolive‘s Welcome To Madagascar Forest and Welcome To Japanese Garden shower gels are lovely!

Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream & Night Cream

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 of Boots’ most prestigious skin care products – Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream and Night Cream. I’ve been using these 2 products for almost 6 weeks now, and here’s what I think.

Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream with retinol and Matrixyl 3000 promises to improve lines and wrinkles for visibly younger looking skin in 2 weeks. Whilst I have terrible skin (very dry and moody skin, eczema, skin discolorations, milia and I get spots all the time), I have no wrinkles (Yay!) and only a few very fine lines on my forehead. I have to credit Olay for this – but this is another matter for another day.

Since I’ve used this No 7 day cream, I’ve noticed that those very fine lines are even harder to detect. This is a great result! Whilst the day cream doesn’t feel very hydrating when it’s applied (this did concern me when I started to use it), I can confirm that it hydrates my skin well. Another thing I’m happy to report is that this day cream plays extremely well with my make-up (Max Factor Pan Stik). I think this is a great day cream, and I’m looking forward to giving the full size tub a try!

Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Night Cream promises to smooth lines and wrinkles and to help skin recover from the day. I think this is a great night cream. As I said earlier, the few lines I’ve got are almost invisible, and I think this night cream deserves half the credit. I’m also happy with the hydration my skin’s getting from this night cream. It’s perfect!

I was hoping these products would also have a brightening effect, but unfortunately, they don’t. They don’t claim to be brightening, and this is perfectly alright. However, if they also had brightening properties, I’d consider them holy grail products! In any event, these products are truly amazing, and I would recommend them without hesitating.

I got these 2 25ml tubes as part of a reduced price No 7 gift set (which also contained a facial oil, 5ml serum, a micellar water and an exfoliating product – all for £10). The full size tubs (50ml) are £25 each.

Have you tried these products or would you like to try them? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
