Boots No7 is launching its latest innovative skincare range: No7 Early Defence Skincare. The brand new skincare range is specially designed to keep young skin looking younger for longer.
With my wedding just 66 days away (!!!), I have been upping my beauty regime and committing to looking after my skin.
The experts at No7 have realised that many women in their late 20s and early 30s are putting their health and wellbeing at the forefront of the beauty agenda. Looking after their mind and body has never been more important, however anti-ageing is not yet a concern for many of these young women.
Committed to developing the best skincare solutions to fulfil women’s needs whatever their age, the experts at No7 have developed their newest skincare solution designed specifically to fit the needs of 20-35 year old women: NEW No7 Early Defence Skincare.
NEW No7 Early Defence Skincare (consisting of Day, Night and Eye Creams) works as a ‘stepping stone’ to help in the transition from everyday skincare to proactively delaying the signs of ageing.
The range offers No7’s new and most effective patent pending daily protection technology, ‘Double Defence’ that, in combination with No7’s unbeatable 5* UVA technology, gives skin advanced daily protection from the sun and environmental stress to help it look younger for longer.
I’ve been trying out the new collection for the past week and am totally sold already. My skin is looking brighter and smoother than it has for a long time.
The No7 Early Defence Day Cream (£19.50) is a super-light moisturiser with 5* UVA protection and SPF15 which gives advanced daily protection. The smell of both creams is light and with a hint of citrus fruits – perfect for the summer. I usually find day creams too heavy when I’m wearing make up too and although this cream looks and feels quite heavy initially, it sinks into the skin really quickly and doesn’t leave any residue.
The No7 Early Defence Night Cream (£19.50) is a luxurious feeling hydrating cream that absorbs quickly for a boost of care that continues while you sleep. This cream also protects from daily damage that continues and helps your skin to recover. This has a similar scent and is divine. The night cream actually feel slightly lighter than the day cream which is unusual. As with the day cream, the night cream absorbs quickly and I wake up with my skin feeling smooth and not as all greasy or sticky.
The No7 Early Defence Eye Cream (£13.50) is especially designed for the delicate areas around your eyes, enriched with Vitamin C to help reduce puffiness and dark circles, for brighter more beautiful eyes. This is a light cream with no real scent. It aborbs quickly and actually, without really realising it, I have managed to not use my No7 Radiance Concealer on the under-eye area as much as usual this past weekend (despite a late night and a little alcohol consumption at my friend’s wedding!) – so it must be doing something!
The science part – patent pending Double Defence technology contains:
- Ginseng and Mulberry, rich in polyphenols which are effective against superoxides produced in skin when exposed to sunlight or pollution.
- Vitamin C, effective against ozone, which is formed from ultraviolet light and atmospheric electrical discharges.
- Lipochroman and Vitamin E which are effective against singlet oxygen, an incredibly damaging free radical produced by UVA exposure.
- Rice peptides and Alfalfa, which are effective inhibitors of age-accelerating enzymes (MMPs) in the skin. These enzymes are produced in the skin to help it remodel and repair after damage. They degrade breakdown fragments, playing the role of housekeepers and allowing proper repair to follow. In ageing, however, these enzymes become hyperactive breaking down healthy skin components such as collagen.
The No7 Early Defence Day Cream (£19.50 for 50ml), No7 Early Defence Night Cream (£19.50 for 50ml) and No7 Early Defence Eye Cream (£13.50 for 15ml) will be exclusively available at Boots stores across the UK and at boots.com from tomorrow (Wednesday 15 April 2015).
No7 Early Defence Day, Night and Eye Creams will replace the current No7 Protect and Perfect Day, Night and Eye Creams, whilst No7 Protect & Perfect ADVANCED Serums will still be available to be used in combination with the new skin care range.
