Anti-ageing product review- Lulu’s Time Bomb ‘Take Off Time’ Cleansing Cream

Review by Fabafterfifty

1. Why try a new cleanser?
I’m always open to trying new products- especially if they are dual purpose and developed for mature skins. The fact that the Time Bomb’s Take Off Time Cleansing Cream had exfoliating properties ( contains magnesium oxide crystals which are used in many micro-dermabrasion products) too was a bonus for me, and the smaller size is easy to slip into my hand baggage while travelling. Lulu always looks so youthful a great advertisement for her own products so I felt it was definitely worth trying.

2. What it felt/smelt like?
A rich creamy texture

3. How often did I use it ?
I used every morning – I  used the cleanser on its own  for 2 days and used  the optional cleansing pads ( Take off Time Polishing Pads) every third morning  for extra exfoliation.

4. Was it easy to use?
Very easy to use- I always like cleansers that need to be ‘rinsed off’ – so suited me really well. The packaging also made it easy to pack- I wasn’t afraid of breakage or spillage.

Skin looker ‘dewy’

5. How soon did I see results?
So difficult to measure results, but skin definitely felt good immediately after cleansing. 3 weeks after using it looks ‘dewy’ despite having had more sun exposure while on holiday, although this might also be due to using the Time Bomb ‘Youth Juice’ which I loved- and have quite possible become addicted to!!

6. Results at the end of the month
Skin is looking look, and I haven’t felt the need to use an additional exfoliating mask- which I would normally use.

7. Did it do what it said on the box?
Absolutely. Although I also used other products in the Time Bomb range at the same time, including Youth Juice and Glory Days days cream

8. Would I recommend to a friend and why/why not?
Definitely. I always like to find dual purpose products that work!

Lulu’s Time Bomb Take-Off Time Cleansing Cream 125 ml Price £ 12.25 , 60 ml £7.75

Take Off Time  Polishing Pads Price: £5.50

Note: it’s always worth checking when Lulu is due to appear on QVC – they often ‘package’ products together with special offers. Her next appearance is 31st August at 2pm and 10pm
