We all need a good moisturiser, especially if you’re unfortunate enough to have dry skin, like I do. Like many, I’ve hopped around different brands, never really settling on one moisturiser but recently I decided to opt for an anti-ageing on instead.
Now, I’m only 22 and have been asked many times why I would want an anti-ageing moisturiser – especially as I don’t have any wrinkles yet! But I’ve also heard so many times that if you start investing in anti-ageing products earlier than you need them, it can be beneficial in keeping wrinkles away for longer … and I’m all up in that!
However, it’s really important to get the right anti-ageing product for your age group – and that’s where Boots has come in really handy. Not only do they have products to reduce the signs of ageing, but they now have a range called ‘Youth Maintain’ for people like me who want to prevent the ageing process. Using a product that someone much older than you would use can actually do more damage to your skin than anything else, especially as many of these products contain collagen, which younger skin will already have plenty of!
Having used the Youth Maintain exfoliator by the Time Delay range at Boots, I decided to try out their moisturiser too. This particular one is for during the day as it contains SPF15 which, although isn’t the highest SPF factor I’ve ever seen in a moisturiser, is still a plus.
I was really happy to see upon opening the box that the product was contained in that it had a really pretty, attractive look to it. The shiny, metallic lid was something that was really appealing to me as I’m practically a magpie, especially in this gorgeous purple/pink colour.
The actual moistuiser itself is lovely and creamy – it feels very soothing on your skin when applied so it’s something that I always look forward to putting on. This also ensures a nice smooth base for applying makeup and getting rid of any dryness in your skin. It does feel ever so slightly heavy on your skin but dries in quickly so isn’t much of an issue for me. It’s definitely not greasy and there’s plenty of it as well, so thankfully it isn’t running out any time soon!
All in all, it’s great value for money, especially as it’s usually on some kind of deal and it’s ideal for helping to maintain the youthful aspects of your skin – although I’ll let you know how well that has worked in 10 years time!
