When I turned 29 a few weeks ago, it really hit home how close to my thirties I am now.
I know turning thirty isn’t anything to be worried about, and that it doesn’t actually change much, but as I approach this milestone, I want to be doing as much as possible to keep my skin in as good condition as it can be.
One of the ways I have been doing that is mixing up my nightly skincare regime to find the products that really work for me.
When I was sent the new Line Correcting Booster Serum from No7 at the beginning of the month, I was really interested to see if it would help me combat the fine lines (crows feet) that have appeared mainly around the corners of my eyes and along my forehead.
The serum claims to visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It’s suitable for sensitive skin, and suggests to either apply directly to skin, or mix in with your regular moisturiser, eye cream or foundation to ‘supercharge’ it.
The packaging is so cool, the design reminds me of a needle, and I like that a push of the button at the bottom dispenses just the right amount of serum, which minimises waste (although may mean getting the product out towards the end will be tricky).
The serum itself is nice and light, it doesn’t feel too greasy, and absorbs into the skin quickly.
I’ve been using it after I cleanse, tone and moisturise, applying specifically to the areas that I have noticed lines in (the corners of my eyes, and my forehead) and I think there has been a difference.
I definitely don’t notice the lines every time I head onto Instagram stories, and I feel more confident when I smile, knowing that the lines aren’t as prominent now.
I’m not sure what results this serum would give for somebody slighter older, with more pronounced lines, so I am going to be giving it to my mum to try out as well, to see how she gets on.
If you are concerned about lines and signs of ageing, but want to avoid needles, I would recommend giving the line Correcting Booster Serum a go. As well as the corner of the eyes and forehead, the serum claims to help with lines and wrinkles around the lips, under eyes and around be nose.
At £38 for 15ml, it isn’t cheap, but it’s fairly reasonable in comparison to other similar products. I think that with regular use, the serum could stave off the signs of ageing, and reduce existing lines.
I was sent the No7 Line Correcting Booster Serum for the purpose of this review, however all opinions and photos are my own.
