Something that promises to both lift and luminate my skin? I’m game! Boots No.7, Britain’s #1 beauty brand, launched a skin serum duo last September that promises to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles in four weeks. They sent the Lift & Luminate Day and Night Serum ($24.99) to test and this very affordable couple is rather impressive.
Together, these serums target three of the biggest skin care concerns: uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin firmness.
The Day Serum has some interesting ingredients. Hyperpigmentation is tackled with Sopora, Kiwi, and Vitamin C. Free radical fighting ingredients include Vitamin C, ginseng, and mulberry. In addition, Vitamin A, peptides, and DPHP (Dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline) help firm and repair the skin’s elastic structure.
The Night Serum has PHA (Gluconolactone) which is a kick-butt leave on skin exfoliator. PHA is as effective as AHAs, but because the molecular structure is larger there are less irritating side effects. The larger structure means less absorption into the skin, but PHA is proven to have the same efficacy, which is great news for those with more sensitive skin. In addition to exfoliating the skin, the Night Serum also hydrates and moisturizes.
Both serums smooth on beautifully and soak in quickly. I find that they play well with my other skin care products. I used them for a month and they definitely left my skin brighter and healthier looking.
The price is right, too – you get a tube of each for only about $25. If you are looking for brighter, tighter, younger looking skin, think about picking up this dynamic duo next time you are at Target! - Lisa
