I love beauty products, and as a blogger, I receive my fair share of them to review, a few of them suck, some make no difference, and a bunch are actually amazing, and I do stick to them for a long time. The last option was exactly how I felt about this No7 Lift & Luminate Day and Night Serum. After using it for about 3-4 weeks, I’m absolutely hooked!
For start, the idea of having both day & night serums in one package is very convenient. Rather than having to purchase 2 separate products, for day and night, like we’re used to, these two come together and compliment each other.
The Day formula serves to inhibit further melanin over-production, and is designed to brighten, protect against free radicals, and firm skin. The skin brightening complex includes sopora, kiwi, and vitamin C, the antioxidant complex adds mulberry and ginseng, and the firming complex repairs structural protein with vitamin A, peptides, and DPHP (an ingredient known for hydrating and boosting collagen production.)
Whilst the night serum works to remove existing surface melanin. Firming complexes in both serums smooth out lines and wrinkles and promotes skin firmness. It contains newer skincare ingredient, PHA (polyhydroxy acids); this wrinkle-fighter is an exfoliant and is described as a gentler alpha hydroxy acid making it suitable for sensitive skin. It claims to have a number of anti-aging benefits including increased cell turnover, skin brightening, and reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and pore size. It also hydrates and strengthens skin’s barrier function.
One of the things I noticed about using this product, beside the long term results, was the instant improvement of the condition of my skin, every time I applied it, let it be the day or the night serum, they both worked like a primer whevever I applied them, which was even more impressive.
Verdict? Highly recommended if you’re looking for an instant glow and over all skin improvement in about 4 weeks time. Available at all Boots stores for 13 Kuwaiti Dinars, or 130 Emarati Dirhams.
