No7 Softening Generations of Laugh Lines

Hi Loves
What with Mothers day only the other week I was delighted to have 3 generations in my house for the day, my Daughters and Granddaughter's filled the house with laughter and I could imagine the room if we still had my Mum and my Nan, as a family I have to say we are blessed with fairly good skin although some of the things I have done over the years and seen the girls do really don't bear thinking about ! yes I used pure Lemon Juice and flour in my youth in an attempt to diminish freckles ! 

When I think about skincare and think back to my Mum, Nan and how I am with my girls today times have changed in ways that are incomprehensible, my Nan was happy with soap and water only, I can't say what soap although I do recall it being brown and not smelling great at all, it was probably used to clean shirt collars and cuffs with a scrubbing brush too !  Mum was a little more exotic, still with soap but I think she was of the generation that actually believed the black and white TV ads that told her Lux soap would make her beautiful, when I dared to suggest Pears soap one day, I was quickly put in my place with the words "Do you think we are made of money, that's for posh people "   flipping heck you would have thought I had suggested that she bathe in asses milk ! she did however discover that all of the soap was rather drying and a good dollop of cold cream eased the tightness.

The thing I learnt from these two powerhouses was to avoid soap, thus to be labelled "soap shy" bearing in mind both of these women thought it was OK to spit on a hanky and rub it across my face at any given sign of dirt as a child.

Things have come a long way since then and I often wonder if it's all gone a little mad when I see girls evening skincare routines being displayed on Instagram posts consisting of sometimes 17 different products, my eldest daughter learnt her skincare ways from me over the years and swears by No7 skincare, to the point that regardless of what exotic jars I have up the office she still insists on being bought No7 for Christmas and Birthday, starting with Protect & Perfect in her 30s for fine lines and wrinkles and moving on to Lift & Luminate in her forties covering not only fine lines and wrinkles but addressing firmness and pigmentation too.

Over the 10 years since the very first No7 Serum hit the shops Boots have gone on to discover more and more ways of combating the laughter lines that come with a family of nutcases, it is definitely not a case of one size fits all,  each Serum is developed for each stage of our ageing process and now for my 60+ friends we have the joy that is Restore & Renew a multi-action Serum that not only covers Fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and firmness but also deals with the thing that gives away age at a glance, the neck, no longer do you need a separate neck cream when you can have it all in one tube.

New No7 Restore & Renew contains Calcium Amino Acids and Ceramides which are designed to target the specific needs of mature skin, I found that when trusting this serum to work alone it gave me better results than I expected from one single product, I could visibly see an improvement in the neck and decolletage area and the skin on my face had more bounce and firmness to the touch, which really goes to show that good skincare needn't be a complicated affair, another thing that really impressed me was the speed in which the serum was absorbed by my skin, no hanging around waiting for it to sink in, while using Restore & Renew I found that my foundation applied better without the use of a primer, it also seemed to keep my foundation in place longer.

The adage that you get what you pay for certainly gets blown out of the water with No7, you would expect to pay a lot, lot more for something that delivers visible results.
