No7 Skincare Challenge, Part 3!

This is the final chapter in my Mother’s No7 Skincare challenge.  She has now been using the products for just over a month, religiously and here is the long awaited before and after!


As I said in the last post, her skin tone is now more even and looks a lot more healthy.  I haven’t noticed any reduction of wrinkles throughout the past month but perhaps this will change with consistent use over the next few months.  Mummy Snooks has gained a few spots since using the skin care regime (she, like me, is acne prone and gains them when changing her skincare products), but these have gone down quite quickly (nothing a bit of spot cream can’t sort out).  I think her skin looks more radiant and glowing (you could say illuminated, ha!) in the after picture.

In the last post (here) I included a review of the day cream.  Reviews for the Night & Eye cream below –


No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream – This is an intensely thick and nourishing night cream which really helps to pop all moisture back in to the skin over night, which is probably why Mummy Snooks’ face is a lot plumper and firmer.  This cream can leave your skin a little greasy if you apply too much because it is so thick, but you can always pat off the excess with a tissue.

No7 Lift & Luminate Eye Cream – Mummy Snooks has been squeezing a dot out of this on her ring finger, and then pats it in gently around her eye area (under my instruction!) as to not further drag the skin and cause more wrinkles.  This eye cream is light and blends in easily, which is perfect for the delicate skin around the eye area.

What I think:  I love the elegance of No7 products and the fact that they cater their skincare products to every age.  The packaging is very luxurious but both Mother Snooks and I agree that the glass packaging is a bit heavy for travelling and would be more suited to a lighter pump or something similar. 
The actual products work really well together in a regime and I can see my Mum using this range for a very long time now!

You can purchase the products in Boots stores or online, prices and links below!

No7 Lift & Luminate Day Cream – £21 (50ml)
No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream – £22 (50ml)
No7 Lift & Luminate Eye Cream – £18 (15ml)

Will you be trying No7’s skincare range? Can you see the difference in Mother Snooks’ face?

    Ah you mum is the best!!! Today my mum went like "oh please go get me a moisturiser!", I said "Clinique or drugstore?" and she replied "the cheapest you can find"… Now this is NOT a good way to start a new skincare routine, is it? lol

    Consumer Reports say there is no relation between price and the effect of cream as the skin is a living thing and responding differently so there is no such thing as a cream that is best for all. To find the best wrinkle cream or other skin products based on their skin type, read consumer wrinkle cream reviews before making any decision.
