  1. Is there an injection free alternative to Botox and Fillers? DEU All In One Serum explained

    Comment
    Interview by Ceri Wheeldon Is there really an anti-ageing skincare that can compete with Botox and Fillers? A new serum from Italy  DEU All In One Serum is described as just that. I asked Karina Luper , of DEU to explain why this new serum is so revolutionary. The questions asked in this video  interview include: This product is describes as an alternative to botox and fillers – can it really compare? Do the results really compare ? What makes this Deu serum so different? What are the active ingredients? How do you use it? Why does it come in small vials? Some of the results have been outstanding in your before and afters – how long would they have used it for? How long before you see results? Why only 21 days –...
  2. Product Review: Dr Murad Intensive Age Diffusing Serum and Dr Murad Age-Balancing Moisture

    1
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon     Can a resilient desert plant help transform ageing skin?   Well I tried the latest additions to the Dr Murad anti-ageing skincare range to find out. Both the Intensive Age-Diffusing Serum and the Age-balancing Moisture contain specialised proteins from the Resurrection Plant, found in the desert, which help reduce age-related dehydration, tightens and firms the skin, and helps lock in moisture. I was certainly putting the hydration properties to the test – I have been using the Tria Age Defying Laser which in the early stages of use dries your...

  4. Review: Caci Microlift Personal Facial Toning System

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon Having previously had a course of in-salon CACI treatments with good results I was looking forward to trying the relatively new home use handheld CACI Microlift unit. The CACI Microlift has a patented muscle gripping action which emits tiny electrical impulses which help to tone facial muscles. There is a choice of two treatment options with 3 intensity settings in each. To start the treatment you place serum filled ‘buds’ into the four probes. The Wrinkles Programme which is split into 2 sections – the first half of the wrinkles programme is spent ‘gripping’ the muscles between the two sets of probes, and the ‘release’ programme which aims to relax and stretch the muscles – this I found less easy to master in my first...
  5. Product Review Rodial Glamtox Neck Mask for anti-ageing skincare

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon Necks can be one of the first areas to show the signs of ageing. I recently met a plastic surgeon who mentioned that he was surprised at how many women spent a fortune on face creams yet neglected their necks. Perhaps these Glamtox neck masks are the answer for mature skins!   You peel the mask off its plastic backing and apply to the neck. It is very soothing and hydrating. Leaving on foe 20 to 30 minutes you peel off and gently massage the residue into the skin – although in my case my skin had quite literally absorbed all of the product. You can feel a tightening effect as soon as it is applied. What are the active ingredients? Active ingredients include amino acids and wheat protein. Does it...
  6. Product Review Rodial Glamoxy Snake Mask for anti-ageing skincare

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   The Rodial Glamoxy Snake Mask promises to ‘freeze and smooth’. But does it work?   It’s a little odd applying a jet black face mask , but as soon as you apply it to the face you can feel its tightening effect on the skin. The gel like consistency makes it a little fiddly to apply evenly and it is recommended that you leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. Once the 15 minutes is up you peel it off. So far I have not mastered the art of peeling it off in one go! The mask has a fast acting peptide which has a freeze like effect on face. The liquorice and amino acids help to brighten the skin. The results After just one application...
  7. Review of Tria Age Defying Laser – Can it Combat the Signs of Ageing Skin Part 1

    1
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon How can the Tria Age Defying Laser combat the signs of ageing? Enlarged pores. loss of volume. sagging skin, pigmentation, wrinkles – we will all experience some or all of these as we age. Of course if we have the budget and determination we can look at surgical and non-surgical procedures if we so choose, but personally I like to look at treatments that can be done and maintained at home. Tria Age Defying Laser (fractional non-ablative laser) is just one of a number of devices taking advantage of technology developed for aesthetic practitioners which has now been developed for home use. The Tria Age Defying Laser is said to improve texture, tone and clarity of skin. The laser treats the...
  8. Video Review Benefit Cosmetics – Best Products in the range for mature women

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   Whenever I go to buy make up, I tend to go straight to the large department store and replace whatever I’m running out of with the exact same product – so sometimes it’s good to try a few products from a range that normally escapes your radar. I have always really liked the packaging for Benefit Cosmetics, but always thought of their products of being more suited to a younger clientelr – but not any more. I found a few of their products are terrific for women over 50. My particular favourites being the Porefressional Primer – which REALLY helped minimise pores , the Fine One to One blusher stick and the Gimme Brow eyebrow enhancer. I have put together a video review. Hope you enjoy it!   Products featured:   Benefit Porefressional Primer Benefit Gimme Brow Benefit Fine One to One Blusher Benefit Stay Don’t Stray Eye Primer Benefit Oxygen...
  9. Review: Time Bomb Black Ops Dark Circle Rescue

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon For various reasons I have struggled to sleep for more than a couple of hours a night lately – and as a result I have industrial strength black circles and have been resembling a human panda. But would Time Bomb Black Ops Dark Circle Rescue  actually help? Time Bomb Black Ops Dark Circle Rescue is described as ‘ it is a treatment clinically proven to reduce eye area darkness with regular use. It does contain skin-boosting Omega 3 fatty acids and light diffusing particles that make eyes look instantly brighter, wider and refreshed.’ Does it work? IN A 28-DAY CLINICALLY-BASED CONSUMER TRIAL: • 84% saw improvement in skin texture under and around eyes • 72% saw improvement in the darkness in the corner of their eyes...
  10. Product Review: Silk Fibre Brow Enhancer

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon Thinning brows can be a problem for women over 50, especially as many of us were encouraged to pluck, pluck , pluck when we were younger resulting in very sparse brows now. If, like me, you’re not a fan of the ‘painted on ‘ brow look, then I think this Silk Powder Brow Enhancer could be the solution. It acts as instant brush on brow extensions, helping to lengthen, thicken and fill in brows. This is different from using eyebrow pencils as it sculpts the eyebrow by attaching hundreds of tiny fibres to the brows, giving a natural looking brow. One word f caution -it is very powdery so best done in the bathroom – avoid using any cream bedroom carpet which is a mistake I made! It stays in place all day (the literature says 12...
