  1. Review of Murad’s Vita-C Triple Exfoliating Facial

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I tend to be a DIYer when it comes to facials, preferring to pamper myself in the comfort of my own bathroom rather than trek into town for a facial. I have to admit to my skin looking a little dull as a result of lockdown and spending far too much time indoors. I was pleased to be asked if I would like to try this brand new exfoliating facial product from Murad. Designed to be used 2 – 3 times a week, Murad Vita-C Triple exfoliating Facial combines three exfoliants : Physical: Micro mineral exfoliants remove dead surface cells Enzymatic: Enzymes to dissolve oil debris and dead cells Chemical: Glycolic, Lactic and Salicyclic to exfoliate, brighten and purify pores. It also...
  2. Could Aloe Vera Juice be a cost effective alternative to expensive Collagen drinks to combat the effects of ageing on skin?

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Daily shots of collagen drinks have been recommended for some time as a way of improving skin as we age.  But is Aloe Vera juice a viable (and cheaper) alternative?  I though I would share my own personal experience of taking aloe vera juice- and the impact it had on my skin which I discovered quite by accident! Collagen is a fibrous protein which  provides the infrastructure for elastin in the skin. Collagen production decreases as we age, resulting in skin sagging and wrinkles forming. By the time we reach our 50s we tend to lose a third of the collagen in our skin. No wonder collagen supplements have become a popular way to put back what nature has taken away. I have been...
  3. Review of Vichy Neovadiol Compensating Complex for Mature Skin

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon In my latest review of skincare products for mature skin I tried Vichy’s Neovadial Compensating complex day cream, compensating complex replenishing serum, and densifying and sculpting night care. I tried three products in this range – the serum , daycare cream and night cream. It claims to densify and define skin contours and is developed specifically to address the effects of the menopause on the skin. The key active ingredients are Hyaluronic Acid and a high dose of Pro-Xylane Having used the combination of all three for the past six weeks, here are my thoughts. All three products are light in texture and not overly scented. They are quickly absorbed into the skin. The night cream is very cooling on contact. My skin felt...
  4. Review of KeraHealth 360 Hair Health Plan for thinning hair

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon Thinning hair is a common problem for women in midlife and beyond. Our hair may well have been our ‘crowning glory’ when we were younger – but as we get older both volume and condition of hair can worsen. I was asked if I would like to try the KeraHealth Hair Health plan, comprising a shampoo, conditioner, supplement and scalp massager, developed specifically to help prevent hair loss and promote hair growth (you can read my interview with the KeraHealth founder who developed KeraHealth having experienced hair loss herself). KeraHealth Follicle Healing Shampoo and Conditioner I have used products developed to counter hair loss previously. Where KeraHealth differs is in its consistency. It is not at all cloying. It is light ,...
  5. Review of BIOEFFECT 30 day treatment serum

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon With beauty salons closed once again as we find ourselves in Lockdown part two, I thought it would be a good time to try some at home beauty treatments. Although I think I gave a pretty good skincare routine, now and again I feel it needs an extra boost. The stress of this year had definitely taken its toll when it comes to my skin. I am just part way through a 30 day intensive treatment cycle using BIOEFFECT 30 Day Treatment. This is an intensive serum containing EGF, IL-1a and KGF growth factors which are natural to the...
  6. A Guide To The Cosmetic Use Of Botox

    Comment
    Botox is a toxin made from Botulinum, which leads to botulism. But when a doctor uses it appropriately, it can deliver a plethora of benefits. It provides patients with both medical and cosmetic treatments, which can enhance both their looks their confidence. Derived from bacteria called botulinum, Botox , to be used safely , must be used in specific amounts at clinically improved injection points. It is advised that you search for reputable “botox clinics near me” on the internet and make an appointment with a fully qualified physician for treatment. Let’s find out how this treatment helps in cosmetic and medical treatment.   Botox for cosmetic treatment Botox is primarily used for eliminating or softening wrinkles from the face and neck. It also tightens the...
  7. Facelift for facial rejuvenation

    Comment
    Youth and facial appearance can be amongst the most important things for many women in the world. Unfortunately, as we age, the skin elasticity decreases, and wrinkles appear on the face. Most women try to hold them at bay by using cosmetics and beauty treatments. However, this usually does not have a lasting effect. In order to make your face younger effectively and quickly, increasingly women  undergo a facelift. One of the best countries for this procedure in Turkey. The facelift cost in Turkey is one of the lowest in the world, and the quality of procedures is at a very high level. With the help of medical tourism, you can easily undergo the ...
  8. Review of Nailpad : Great for home manicures

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon During lockdown visits to nailbars for regular manicures came to an abrupt stop – although I have to confess to never having been to one- I have always been quite low maintenance and managed my nails at home. However, I do know how frustrating it can be when doing your own nails at home to balance the nail varnish between your knees, or dip the brush cautiously into the bottle to avoid getting excess varnish on furniture or clothes. I am a fan of beauty gadgets – and the Nailpad is such a simple idea you wonder why it hasn’t been thought of before! ...
  9. Review of Bronnley Hand Lotion and Soaps

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon With constant handwashing (whilst singing Happy Birthday twice)  becoming the new norm as we move through the Covid pandemic, how can we best take care of our hands.  We tend to focus on moisturising our faces – but hands can often be neglected- with the increase in handwashing our hands need more support than ever. How often do you hear it said that neglected hands can give away a woman’s age – not that we shouldn’t proud of the age we are of course! Bronnley hand soaps were a staple in our house when I was growing up – a firm favourite with my Mum. The brand was established 130 years ago and has certainly stood the test of...
  10. Some of my favourite skincare beauty gadgets for women over 50

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon As I write this during lockdown, I know many women are missing not having the opportunity to have their regular facials. As it may be some time before we are able to have any ‘hands on’ therapies while we wait for restrictions to be lifted, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite home beauty gadgets . I have reviewed many over the years, but these are the ones that I am currently using – and seem to be the ones I keep coming back to – and give as gifts to friends!   Cleansing Gadgets Sonic silicone cleanser ...
