Hello and happy Monday!
Got another review for you, but this time it’s skincare and it’s several products!
Thanks to Influenster for sending me this voxbox complimentary for testing. I’ve just about finished with the majority of the products at this point and I really enjoyed them so I thought reviewing everything for you would be nice in case you guys are looking for similar products.
Here are all the products together:
What I received:
- Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Fragrance Free Day Cream SPF30
- Laboratories Line Correcting Booster Serum
- Pure Retinol Eye Cream
- Advanced Retinol 1.5% Complex Night Concentrate
- Pure Retinol Night Repair Cream
I’ll do my best to keep these reviews short and speedy for you, as it is several.
Before we start, it’s worth mentioning that No7 is cruelty-free as verified by Cruelty-Free Kitty.
Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced
Fragrance Free Day Cream SPF 30
All the power of No7’s anti-aging technology, now in a fragrance free formula. With age defying ingredients plus the protective power of SPF 30 and our unique Double Defence technology, this award-winning, nourishing day cream hydrates and smooths the appearance of lines and wrinkles for skin that looks more radiant and youthful. For younger looking skin, now and in the future.
This day cream felt really great on my skin. I like that it has SPF and it didn’t make my t-zone oily as other spf moisturizers do. The texture is a bit thick, but it sinks well into the skin. It’s a good alternative to what I already have and also a great one for winter. I do also like the texture of this cream, it’s really nice for an SPF moisturizer.
- With HA (hyaluronic acid) which is amazing for hydrating the skin.
- Formulated with ginseng extracts to fight the look of tiredness and fatigue.
- Suitable for sensitive skin.
Laboratories Line Correcting Booster Serum
No7 Line Correcting Booster Serum visibly reduces wrinkles in one week.* It’s formulated with MATRIXYL 3000 PLUS™. Apply this serum before moisturizers, oils, primers and makeup. You can also use as a booster by mixing 1 or 2 drops into your moisturizer, eye cream or foundation to supercharge your favorite product with a boost of line-smoothing power.
This serum feels lightweight and sinks into the skin fast. I don’t have fine lines yet, so I cannot exactly comment on their claim that appearance of lines and wrinkles are reduced with consistent use of this product. Even so, I still think it’s a good idea to implement anti-aging products into our skincare as it’s never too late. This is more of a preventative product for me, I tend to concentrate it on my forehead, outer corners of my eyes for crows feet, smile lines and neck.
I do also like the packaging and method of dispensing the product, up and out. It leaves nothing inside the tube, neat!
Highlights of product:
- Can be mixed into moisturizers, eye creams or foundations.
- Formulated with collagen peptide-based technology.
Pure Retinol Eye Cream
No7 Pure Retinol Eye Cream, contains pure retinol to help accelerate surface skin renewal. This retinol eye cream is formulated with Pure Retinol (No7’s most proven form of retinol) and a retinol optimizer encapsulation system that enhances pure retinol delivery to the delicate skin around the eye. It also includes a retinol soother with bisabolol and shea butter, and MATRIXYL 3000 PLUS™.
This was the first retinol eye cream that I’ve ever tried. It felt very gentle in my under eye area. At first, I worried because retinol can make skin extra sensitive, but I was honestly surprised. No stinging or burning, and my skin felt smooth and looked brighter with continued use.
- Eye cream is lightweight.
- Contains pure retinol but is gentle on the skin.
- Fragrance free.
Advanced Retinol 1.5%
Complex Night Concentrate
Now for the first time, No7 has combined two powerful age-defying skincare technologies in one expert formula. With a next-generation retinol complex and our advanced peptide technology, Matrixyl 3000+™, this night concentrate offers a boost of overnight anti-aging power that reboots and renews skin, helping it act like younger, healthier-looking skin. Lines look smoother, skin tone looks even and skin appears firm, lifted, brighter and more radiant while pores and texture look refined. Experience the power of retinol while minimizing irritation with this skin-transforming overnight treatment.
This was my first time trying a retinol concentrate with more retinol content than I’ve used before. I had to slowly introduce this into my skincare routine and now a days, I use it two to three times a week max. My skin feels pretty good and I think this product has helped my acne prone skin a whole lot. It feels a little on the thick side but its still a lightweight product.
ABOUT No7’s 1.5% RETINOL COMPLEX
- Pure Retinol (.3%): expert-recommended level, optimized for efficacy and comfort
- Retinol Optimizer (1%): slow-release system for enhanced delivery
- Retinol Soother (.2%): helps to calm skin and minimize irritation
Pure Retinol Night Repair Cream
No7 Pure Retinol Night Repair Cream contains pure retinol to help accelerate surface skin renewal. This rich retinol cream is formulated with Pure Retinol (No7’s most proven form of retinol) and a retinol optimizer encapsulation system that enhances pure retinol delivery. It also includes a retinol soother with bisabolol and shea butter, and MATRIXYL 3000 PLUS™.
This retinol cream is so so thick; more so than I’m used to. It does take a bit to sink into the skin and I felt like applying took a little more effort due to its viscosity. Even so, one of my favorite things to do with thicker creamers, is add a drop or two of facial oil, and that allows me to spread it out evenly. Mixing it with an oil also allows me to use the gua sha shortly after while the skin is slick.
I liked this cream in the colder months as it left my skin feeling nice, smooth, hydrated and moisturized. I have run out, but I am not entirely sure I would like such a thick cream in the summer. Still, I do recommend, purely because of the retinol. By far, one of my favorite products with retinol.
Can we appreciate the beautiful texture? Even though it’s thick, it feels very soft and smooth! ❤
- Skin appears more even.
- Hyperpigmentation looks reduced.
- Fragrance free.
This was such a great box, and I honestly didn’t expect to get this many items. It’s practically a whole routine and I loved all the products. I have already purchased one of the products and plan on purchasing the rest as well once I finish a few other in my stash.
P.S. I had a lot of fun shooting with these products.
I felt like my crystals went well with this collection and the photos turned out amazing.
