Fabafterfifty: Anti-ageing

How to look fabulous after 50!

Half a century of living doesn’t need to show in your face or body – being over 50 doesn’t mean submitting to the visible signs of age. We explore the options for face and body rejuvenation!

  1. Anti-Ageing Herbs to Combat Wrinkles

    anti-ageing herbs to combat wrinkles image
    When we hit a certain time in our lives, particularly the age of fifty and beyond, wrinkles find their way onto our faces. Maybe we laughed a little too hard or frowned a bit too much. Even excessive worry has left the foreheads of many of us more  wrinkled than we would like. And, just as our mothers before us, we want to make them disappear as quickly as they appeared.. There are anti-aging creams out there and procedures like Botox and facelifts that can help you get rid of wrinkles. In fact, we have an entire section of our site dedicated to Makeup Facelifts, which have tips for readers on how to create the illusion of a wrinkle free face. Of course, with some of these methods, particularly surgical operations or injections, there is always an element of wrisk. We won’t get into the specific risks a facelift can put...
  2. Review of Strivectin Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturiser

    strivectin retinol night moisturiser review image
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I am always looking for the best skincare to support and enhance mature skin. I may not post lots of reviews, but that is because I really like to use individual products long enough to see if they do in fact make a difference before I share my thoughts.  I am a true believer in ageing gracefully, but in giving nature a little helping hand 🙂 My latest ‘find is Strivectin Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturiser  which supports the essential building blocks of  the appearance of healthy skin. They say: Delivering the anti-ageing benefits of Retinol without irritation, the night-time moisturiser expertly hydrates skin whilst visibly improving signs of ageing, including fine lines and wrinkles. Its dose of Retinol helps refine and restore skin...
  3. L’Oreal Age Perfect Make-Up Review

    Review od L'oreeal age Perfect Make-Up image
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I am so pleased to see big brands finally recognising our needs, as women over 50 and our spending power) and tailor products to reflect this stage of our lives. I was delighted to be asked to review L’Oreal’s Age Perfect makeup range – developed with the needs of mature skin in mind –  products that don’t just improve how we look, but also improve the quality of our skin , lips and lashes over time. With Julianne Moore as the face of the range – it’s good to see that they are embracing and celebrating  women over 50. Normally when I am sent products to review by companies I have a few samples from the range pop through the letterbox in a jiffy...

  5. Time Bomb Christmas Collection on offer on QVC Dec 9th

    Timb Bomb QVC Christmas Collection special offer
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon Time Bomb was one of the first skincare ranges I reviewed on Fab after Fifty – and it has continues to be a personal favourite. The Time Bomb Troubleshooter neck and jaw cream is still viewed as the one to beat by my reviewer   who tries all the neck creams – she buys this one for herself and prefers to all the others she has tried over the past few years. I have always been a fan of the Take Off Time cleanser. Both are included in their special Christmas Collection. I have mentioned previously  that a great way to try new ranges is to look out for offers or gift collections.  If you are looking for a fabulous Christmas gift,...
  6. Review: Time Bomb ABC Vitamin Solution.

    Article by Ceri Wheeldon One of the first product reviews I did for Fab after Fifty was from the Time Bomb range, and I do like to try out the new additions to the range. ABC Vitamin solution  is the latest product to be launched in the Time Bomb range. Our skin loses its ability to absorb vitamins as we age. Time Bomb ABC helps to address that. Applied at night, it delivers a mega dose of vitamins to help boost ageing skin. It is extremely light and is quickly absorbed . Skin instantly feels smoother and tighter. A little goes a long way. Once it has been absorbed you apply your regular night cream. I think this a very effective serum to use at night and compares well to more expensive products I have used, and...
  7. Review: Murad Age Reform Hydro Glow Aqua Peel

    Article by Ceri Wheeldon  I am a huge fan of Murad products – and  for me  their Invisiblur Perfecting Shield is the best primer I have found to date, so I always look forward to trying new additions to their range. The Murad Age Reform Hydro-Glow Aqua Peel is a 2 step exfoliation and intense hydration system. The treatment comes in a giant sachet  , separated into two parts. The first step is the exfoliation part of the process. You apply an over-sized pre-soaked swab that looks like a giant Q-tip all over your face. The swab contains a blend of lactic and glycolic acid and botanical extracts to gently exfoliate the skin. The second step is to apply the Moisture Infusion sheet mask  for 15 – 20 minutes. The mask feels incredibly soothing – and thankfully...
  8. Review: Lee Stafford Bigger Fatter Fuller shampoo and conditioner

    Review by Ceri Wheeldon One of the most frequent comments we receive about hair over 50 (apart from going grey) is the issue of hair being thinner. I tried some of the products from the Lee Stafford Bigger Fatter Fuller range. My hair is naturally curly but very fine, so when I blow dry is straight it tends to lack volume – and I lose the volume at the crown by having to give it a good tug to dry it straight.  I usually use 2 heated rollers at the crown to add some lift and volume once its dry. The Bigger, Fatter Fuller range is not age specific, but really concentrates on adding volume. From the first time I used the shampoo and conditioner...
  9. Product Review: John Frieda’s Sheer Blonde Hi-Impact Vibrancy Oil Elixir

    Review John Frieda's sheer blonde oil elixir
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I always know if I have been using products that are good for my hair by my hairdresser’s reaction . I only go to my hairdresser every 8-10 weeks so there is plenty of time for anything new that I try to have an impact on my hair. My hair is naturally incredibly curly – and prone to frizz – especially in humid weather.  And I do still wear my hair long – with no plans to have it cut shorter just because I’m over 50!  I have been using John Frieda’s Sheer Blonde Hi-Impact Vibrancy Oil Elixir since my last visit, and yesterday at my hair appointment my hairdresser commented on the condition and the shine – he thought he had never seen...
  10. Review of Teoxane Advanced Filler Derma-Restructuring  Anti-Wrinkle Cream

    teoxane advanced filler review image
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon Hyaluronic acid (HA) is included in many topical serums, but I was interested in trying the HA  based Teoxane Advanced Filler serum   developed by Teosyal. Teosyal  is known for its hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used by cosmetic doctors for injections  in over 80countries – so  I thought that in now offering HA  in serums to consumers , they  must be confident in the effectiveness of the product. I have been applying only in the mornings – and have concentrated the product on the areas where I have the most lines – my forehead and crows feet.   I am very  aware of these lines, but made a decision not to have botox. It is very hard for me to give an honest review of the  anti-wrinkle products...
