  1. Natural ways to boost radiance for mature skin

    Comment
    By Gemma Hurditch for CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine). Hydration inside and out is very important for our skin. Aim for 2 litres of water per day – try caffeine-free, skin-loving herbal teas such as nettle, rooibos and rosehips. Red clover tea is also lovely for mature skin, it contains phytoestrogens so can be supportive of those going through menopause and beyond. Red clover tea needs to be steeped in hot water for about 30 minutes to extract full flavour, so use a teapot with a tea cosy and 2 teaspoons of the herb per cup for best results. If unwanted facial hair is a concern, spearmint and green tea can be a useful addition for supporting hormone balance. Reduce alcohol intake, particularly if redness or rosacea is...
  2. New No 7 Laboratories Line Correcting Serum- could it be an alternative to botox?

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Could this serum be a viable alternative to Botox? No7 is launching this new clinically targeted booster serum this week. It is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 5 years, and in consumer studies women said that it reduced their deepest, most stubborn lines and wrinkles.   It is designed to be applied directly to the lines and wrinkles where you want to see results. The key ingredient is Matrixyl 3000 Plus….and this serum contains a much higher concentration than other products – 7 times as much-  to deliver maximum results in helping skin regain elasticity and visibly transform wrinkles. In their consumer trials results were seen in just 2 weeks. In week one there was a visible reduction in the appearance of...
  3. 10 Mistakes to Avoid when Applying Fake Tan

    Comment
      Normally it would be that time of year when we start to pack our winter clothes away and start dressing for spring – and think about airing our legs – obscuring the pasty look with fake tan. It might be a bit too chilly still, but I’m still sharing these tips from Marissa Carter, Founder of Cocoa Brown, shares the common tanning mistakes people make and how best to avoid them and achieve a gorgeous glow with a flawless finish this summer: 10 tips for a streak free tan Applying a tan which is too dark for your skin: Embrace your natural complexion by wearing a tan to suit your skin tone.

  4. Beauty on a budget: Time Bomb Supersize Collection on QVC with 80% discount.

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon   I am always looking at ways to look fabulous over 50 on a budget, whether its looking for 2 for 1 deals, multi-buys etc. So when one of my favourite brands, Time Bomb,  is offering a special deal on QVC I like to let you know. We have reviewed many of the skincare products in the Time Bomb range in the past -and interviewed brand founder Gail Ferderici, who is passionate about delivering products that make a difference.  One of our reviewers insists that the Time Bomb Flashback night cream is the one to beat, so it’s good to see the supersize version included in their latest QVC  ‘Today’s Special Value’  offer  on 30th March, Time Bomb are selling their ‘Supersize Collection’ at...
  5. Review of Strivectin Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturiser

    Comment
    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...
  6. L’Oreal Age Perfect Make-Up Review

    Comment
    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...
  7. Time Bomb Christmas Collection on offer on QVC Dec 9th

    Comment
    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,...
  8. Review: Time Bomb ABC Vitamin Solution.

    Comment
    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...
  9. Review: Murad Age Reform Hydro Glow Aqua Peel

    Comment
    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...
  10. Review: Lee Stafford Bigger Fatter Fuller shampoo and conditioner

    Comment
    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...
