Hands up if you’re a beauty blogger who is slightly terrible at the whole skincare thang. It’s always tragic to admit it, particularly for fear that the blogging community will run you out of town with makeup brushes in place of pitchforks, but I am very lax when it comes to taking care of my skin properly. It’s something that has come to bite me in my slightly large bottom area, because the other day I discovered my first wrinkle. It’s on my forehead, and I have been furiously researching botox since then.
So, when I was sent some very fancy and posh moisturiser by Beauty Lab, I may have fallen to my knees and screamed ‘ZUT ALORS, THANK YOU TO ALL THAT IS GOOD AND GREAT IN THIS WORLD, PARTICULARLY HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH II’. The point of this jazzy bottle of cream is to fight premature signs of ageing (i.e. Granny Lauren’s wrinkly head) and my conclusions are that it is brilliant.
It’s a deeply hydrating cream, which really suits my skin at the moment. I’ve been battling with some pretty horrific eczema over the past 6 months, some of which has been, SO unfortunately, on my forehead, eyelids and mouth (I KNOW IT IS HORRIBLE). I’ve found that it’s really helped with this in particular, and my face eczema has virtually gone after a few weeks of using this bad boy.
While being very hydrating and great (also, it’s not oily in the slightest), it also contains – and I will make a list – some very fancy stuff. Namely:
- Liquid diamond
- Zinc oxide sunscreen
- Collagen tripeptide (what?)
- Hyaluron (what again?)
I’m pretty sure that my face is now worth about £1 million after slathering on diamonds and rubies for a week, so I wouldn’t be too surprised if we get some burglaries soon. I’m not really sure what the point of all these things is, apart from the obvious like vitamins, but whatever they’re doing is bloody fantastic.
My head wrinkle has been SERIOUSLY reduced, my skin generally looks brighter, more healthy and somehow more luminous too (must be all of those sparkly gemstones).
While I’m not usually one to comment on packaging (I’m only going to throw it away, who cares), I love the gold of both the bottle and the box it came in. I also appreciate that the bottle is made out of metal and feels weighty – because if I was going to buy this for myself, I would want a bottle that makes me feel as fancy as the product is.
Which brings me nicely onto price. The Beauty Lab skin perfecting moisture cream retails for £40 for a 30ml bottle – i.e not cheap. But, and I’m usually not the one to say this about a pricey product, it really is worth it. When it comes to skincare, it’s so important to find a product that works for you and suits your skin, which this one more than does for me. If you’d like to purchase it, which I thoroughly recommend you do, you can do so here. I’m very excited to explore more of Beauty Lab’s products, I love the look of their Overnight Repair Beauty Cream!
