Today I am sharing another product from Skin Chemists which was actually sent to my Mum to review - the Skin Chemists Instant Facelift*.
So here's the science bit - the product uses an active ingredient called Eyeseryl® which 'works to inhibit collagen glycation to increase the firmness and elasticity of skin by reducing damaging developments that cause collagen and elastin to break down in ageing skin'. It also contains Vitamins A and E which are great for moistening and nourishing mature, dry and sensitive skins.
To apply it you simply put a thin layer onto clean skin and allow to dry before applying make-up- a little goes a long way.
So the verdict - my Mum has been trying it for the past few weeks and is impressed with the results - she is definitely going to continue using it which is quite novel for her as she usually stops using eye creams and other similar lotions and potions.
As a bit of a background to her skin type, she is in her early 50s and her skin is normal with an oily t-zone. She said that the cream makes your skin feel tighter straightaway and that it has really helped the fine lines around her eyes- but not so much the deeper lines around her mouth. She did notice that when you apply it, it leaves a slight white residue so if you don't wear foundation in the day it is best to use at night.
I also have some more thoughts from my Dad as he has also given this product a try (everyone wants to get into the blogging business!). He said that it worked well and 'got rid of all of his wrinkles' (slight exaggeration I believe) however he said you had to be careful with the pump as the product takes a while to pump out and then will suddenly shoot out in one go. He also felt that the packaging could be improved to make it more premium.
This is another pricy product at £145 for 30ml but I've been given a discount code so you can buy it for £29.99. Simply use the code VITCC. You can buy it here.
