I promised an update to my initial NEWA review – which I used 5 times a week for 6 weeks and then twice a week afterwards. I noticed a significant difference 6 weeks after starting – I did a little research which indicated that it takes 6 weeks for collagen to regenerate – so this explains why the area around my crows feet continues to improve. A photographer friend commented that the light still ‘bounces’ off my skin – which she says is unusual by the time you reach my age – not too sure how much of a compliment that is!
Answering questions about my makeup
When I did the original NEWA review I had people asking me how I managed to have my makeup stay in place during the demonstration as I was applying the gel to activate the current in the device. , so I thought I would share with you the actual products I used – and which in fact I use most days.
The products I used:
First of all I used Miracle Effect Serum from Studio 10, this from a range specially formulated for mature skin- the serum contains 5 anti-inflammatory ingredients, argan oil and hyarulonic acid- it really helps to hydrate and tighten the skin- minimises pores and wrinkles, and also reduces puffiness and dark circles – and helps to reduce age spots – and of course is a great base for makeup. I then used another product from the Studio 10 range- in fact it is a skin perfector palette – with primer, concealers and an anti-redness cream- all of which contain an ingredient called ‘subulift’ – which repairs cells – and has more intense pigmentation than most makeup products – as it is especially geared towards mature skin (developed with a dermatologist). Then I used my favourite burberry foundation. For my eyes I used my go to eye palette – Urban Decay Naked 2 – in all sorts of neutral shades – I used a rimmel eyeliner and my all time favourite mascara – Lancome Dolls Eyes – have not come across any better ones-a and a Studio 10 double ended brow pencil.
I used another of the Studio 10 palettes – this time one that gives a ‘lift’ – in fact it’s called visible lift, with contouring, blush and highlighter. I used a neutral rimmel lipliner and a lip stain by YSL . I finished off with’ glow plexion’ which adds an all round glow – and has light reflecting particles.
So there you have it – and when I apply this it usually stays put all day – if I go out in the evening I just touch up the blush and the lipstick.
