  1. Product review: B. Nourished Skincare for mature skin

    Comment
    Review by Patricia B. Nourished advanced serum, daycream, night cream and  eyecream is a range of skincare products developed for women in their 50s and 60s. We asked Pat to try out the range. This is what she had to say about B.Nourished after using for a month. Is there a specific problem this product is supposed to address? If so, what is it? Care and nourishment of the skin reducing wrinkles Description of product: serum, daycream. nightcream. and eyecream What are the active ingredients? Palmitoyl tripeptide Spanish needle plantain vitamin b3 How is it used? How often? Smoothed on day and night How easy is it to use? The day cream is a little thicker than normal and needed gently working in but well worth it.  The other creams were lighter but felt just as...
  2. All you need to know about Age Spots

    Comment
    By world renowned skincare expert Lorena Oberg As we all know very well, when we get older our body begins to be less responsive and resilient to the elements. Whether it be the smile lines that don’t quite flatten out after a good laugh or noticing additional brown patches after a holiday in the sun. For a lucky few, pigmentation spots won’t affect you but for those Fab After Fifty readers who suffer from age spots, this is my go to guide. What are Age Spots and why do we get them? Age spots, also known as liver spots or sunspots, are flat brown or black spots on the skin. As we age, the melanin (the part of your skin which gives it colour) becomes more active. This means it is more responsive to...
  3. Review : Murad Invisiblur : Sunscreen, moisturiser and primer in one (with video)

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I love products that can multitask and make a difference to mature skin.  I am not a great fan of most  traditional sunscreens for the face as I tend to find that they clog my skin and tend to bring me out in a rash – not a great look. I have always liked  the Murad products developed for mature skin, so I tried and tesred Invisiblur and it does  not disappoint.     Acting as a moisturiser, factor 30 sunscreen and primer in one, it is a great product to have as part of your morning skincare routine. I love skincare products that tick more than one box! I can see why Invisiblur is becoming a favourite with makeup artists –...

  6. Review: Time Bomb Larger Than Life Shampoo and Conditioner

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon Who doesn’t want thicker, fuller looking hair? I think that hair should quite literally be your crowning glory at any age…but midlife hormonal changes can play havoc with hair. I am always on the lookout for products that can restore lustre and volume – in fact I often buy professional grade hair products from my hairdresser  to try at home. I was a  fan of Lulu’s Operation Glam products, so was keen to try the new Time Bomb haircare range that are replacing them. I was n’t disappointed. One of the problems I have found with a lot of ‘thickening’ shampoos is that although  they add volume, they also add weight , which tend to make my hair flatter (my hair is long, well below my...
  7. Review Cult 51 Night Cream and Cult 51 Immediate Effect Serum

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I can certainly see why this night cream and serum have created a cult following.   They give 51 reasons why the cream is effective . including an increase of up to 24% of new skin cell production and up to 52% reduction in wrinkles after 28 days. I have been using the Cult 51 night cream for the past 3 weeks and all I can say is ‘wow’ From the first application, the skin is given an immediate boost, I woke up the following morning with my skin feeling as though it had received the benefit of a salon facial- 3 weeks later and my skin is looking visibly better, with my crows feet look far softer – there had been a definite...
  8. Product review: Time Bomb Throwback Thursday Overnight Peel and Reveal

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon One of my all time favourite products is –TIME BOMB Blast to the Past Dermabrasion  I have been using it weekly  for a couple of years- well now it has been updated  and is now a 2 step weekly treatment,Time Bomb Throwback Thursday Overnight Peel and Reveal Step 1 being Peel, and Step 2 Reveal. Throwback Thursday aims to reduce the look of pores ,fine lines and hyper-pigmentation. Why Thursday? Well it seems the ideal time to apply is Thursday night – so that you reveal fresher, younger looking skin for the weekend. I’m awkward – I  decided to try it out on a Sunday to have a fresh faced Monday! So how does  Throwback...
  9. Cosmetic skin needling – At Home or Clinic – anti-ageing benefits of micro needling

    Comment
    Article by Anthony Kingston Many of you may be aware of skin needling. It is also known as derma rolling or micro needling. In salons you can pay up to £250 per treatment for a half hour session with a therapist. What many of you may not be aware of is how easy it is to perform this therapy at home. In this blog we explore this option and some of the advantages and disadvantages of this approach. First lets explore a myth. You may have seen this therapy done in clinics or worse on you tube. They often use very long micro needles and aggressive techniques and it looks painful or even bloody! It actually does not have to be this way. Research has shown that even when longer micro needles...
  10. The Harley Street Box from LatestinBeauty.com: Fab Introduction to Cosmeceuticals

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon I have to confess to being a bit of a lotions and potions junkie. I just can’t resist trying the latest products, not from the perspective of being desperate to get rid of wrinkles by using a magic pot of cream, but more from the way they smell and feel on the skin. We can all get carried away in the beauty halls of department stores, but there is a whole range of cosmeceutical products which are not so readily available on the high street, but which have been developed by leading skincare experts to really treat your skin. But where do you start? Individual products can be expensive, and as many of the cosmeceutical brands are less well known, not having the benefit of...
