I am in my mid-twenties, but I’m conscious about what I put on my face to help slow down the aging process. I made a decision to invest on the things that go on my skin and get a little cheap on things like mascara and lipstick.
I usually use Philosophy skincare products and I haven’t purchased anything from the drugstore (aka the drugstore section of Ulta) in ages since I no longer work close to an Ulta.
So I am out of the loop when it comes to what brands are available. Thanks to Influenster, I know that a quality Boots No7 skincare line is available at Target. I just know them as color cosmetics, but I guess they’ve grown up.
I received the Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Serum to try out.
I was excited to get it because it is for the early signs of aging. I know my skin isn’t looking old, but now is a great time to start to ward off problems down the road.
I liked the way it made my skin look and feel. It was light weight and left my skin feeling fresh and supple. It was almost like splashing water on my skin. This serum made it feel comfortable and I did see a bit of a glow on my skin when I used it.
I did see that after using it for a while, I had some pitting in areas I never did before. I don’t know if I had some problem areas from acne scarring that weren’t noticeable or this created some issues I’ve never had. Either way, it was unusual to look at my forehead and see dimples.
I haven’t seen them since the sample ran out, so who knows.
My big problem is the sample. Boots No7 says that you’ll see first results in two weeks and full results after a month. Fantastic. Buuut…..
….C’mon now. This packet doesn’t have two weeks’ worth of product in it. I think I got a scant week out of it. Sadly, I don’t know if I’ll be purchasing more.
I know, the whole point of a sample is to give you a little taste, hook you, and make you buy the full size. It’ll start to work its magic and you’ll want to keep it going. I get that. I just wish I was able to get a little more of a well-rounded review out of this.
Overall: I like this serum, but with the imperfections that I noticed the longer I tried it and the short trial time, I don’t know if I’ll be picking it up.
Have you tried Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Serum? What do you think?
