There’s no point in me trying to deny it. I am definitely noticing a few extra ‘laughter lines’ around my eyes these days.
So when Boots sent me their No7 Youthful Eye Serum*, I was really happy to try it out.
After years of ‘benign neglect’, I’m really trying to take better care of my skin as I head into my forties. I admire women like Helen Mirren and Susan Sarandon, who look good for their age rather than trying to look 20 years younger than they are.
I’m trying to get into better habits, looking after my skin a little better than I used to. I’m past the age when I could roll into bed at 3am with my makeup on and still look fresh at work the next day!
One of the areas I think is really important to care for, is the area around the eyes. The skin there is thinner and more delicate than the skin on the rest of your face. So it’s natural that it needs a little bit more care and attention.
About No7 Youthful Eye Serum
Boots say that No7 Youthful Eye Serum* instantly smooths, revitalises and brightens the skin around the eyes. They also claim that it can deliver results within 4 weeks of regular use.
The serum contains a blend of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and something called ‘Soft focus Spheres’. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural component of your body’s connective tissue, maintaining elasticity and strength. It also retains over 1000x its weight in water so it is super hydrating, and continuous use of Hyaluronic Acid can help retain moisture in your skin.
The serum also contains Vitamin A, Cassava and Anti-Ageing Peptides. These improve the firmness of your skin, reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness and reduce wrinkles.
And on top of all that, it’s hypo-allergenic so it doesn’t irritate the sensitive skin around your eyes. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
No7 Youthful Eye Serum: My Review
As I write this post, I’ve been using the serum now for about 3 weeks. Results should be seen within 4 weeks so I think I’m now able to give a proper review of the serum.
I have been using the serum morning and evening, followed by No7 Protect and Perfect Intense eye cream.
And I’m actually very impressed by it! I do think that the skin around my eyes looks more hydrated and in better condition. The fine lines around my eyes definitely look reduced, and I think that there has been a general improvement in the skin in that area.
My eyes are quite sensitive and I have had no adverse reactions to the serum since I started using it.
Boots No7 Youthful Eye Serum is not cheap, retailing at £20 for a 15ml tube. But you do only need a tiny amount patted in around the eye area, so it lasts a long time.
And if you’re at the age where fine lines and wrinkles are starting to show, it’s a really effective product.
I will definitely be continuing to use this product as a regular part of my daily skincare routine. And I will be re-purchasing when this tube runs out.
