** THE GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED **
This giveaway is closed, and the winners have been contacted (congratulations, E. Jones, Ashleigh, Darbie and Maria!!!), but check back next Saturday for another giveaway.
In partnering with Boots Beauty USA on this giveaway for the No7 Skincare #MyBestSkin Campaign, I’ve received product samples and/or compensation for my time and effort in creating this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. #sponsored @bootsbeautyusa #MyBestSkin #BootsNo7
It was a whirlwind backpack adventure across the continent of Europe (complete with hidden diamonds and sleeper train car rides), and the year was 2005…
That’s when I first discovered the Boots No7 beauty line.
El Hub was El Boyfriend at the time, and neither one of us had ever been to Europe before, so we crammed as many countries into our 16-day trip as possible, and one of them was England.
This was also the trip when El Hub asked me to marry him (he sneaked the ring over on the plane hidden in his contact lens case), and if I learned anything on that trip, it was this: if a man willingly allows you to drag him into every pharmacy and drugstore you pass on your vacation just so you can look at beauty products…you better put a ring on that! LOL!
When we arrived in London toward the end of our trip, I discovered Boots No7, and they were EVERYWHERE, but I’d never seen or heard of them before in the U.S., so they were très exotic and interesting to me. Intrigued, I brought home — I kid you not — five full-size bottles of Boots No7 lotion, and I was crushed when I finally finished the last one back at home months later. *tear* 🙁
Fast forward to now, and Boots No7 is also here in the U.S. (and has been for a while). Target carries an extensive selection from the brand, which has a huge range of affordable hypoallergenic products, including makeup, skincare and body care products.
I don’t know if you’re familiar with the brand, but if you’ve been wanting to give them a try, maybe I can help. I’ve partnered with Boots Beauty USA on this here giveaway for their No7 Skincare #MyBestSkin Campaign, and I’m also putting the finishing touches on a Boots No7 purple holiday-ready smoky eye tutorial (here’s a link to the tutorial!).
In the meantime…
I’ve noticed a lot of interesting ingredients in their products, especially in their skincare, and the brand is well known for their anti-aging serums, all of which have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal here in the U.S.
They have four main anti-aging categories, each one with a different serum, and I’m giving away one of each.
Because I’m preggers right now, I’m not really using any anti-aging skincare (just keeping it simple with basic moisturizer and sunscreen), but when Baby Girl arrives in March, I’m all over these. Maybe if you win you can tell me how they worked for you.
This one is supposed to protect your skin for the future, while also keeping you looking younger longer. It’s powdered by something Boots calls their Anti-Aging Complex, which has Matrixyl 3000 Plus™, an antioxidant to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, as well as retinol, alfalfa and rice peptides.
And it also contains salicylic acid and vitamin C for clearer, more radiant skin.
This is the serum designed to deal with deeper lines and wrinkles, and it also contains No7’s Anti-Aging Complex with Matrixyl 3000 Plus™ and retinol, along with hyaluronic acid for firming and moisturizing, and vitamins C and E.
“After 2 weeks, skin looks younger; by 4 weeks, deep lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced. Results keep getting better with continued use. 80% of women said this serum provided the best ever anti-aging results they had ever seen.”
Boots says that this serum duo, which also contains the brand’s Anti-Aging Complex, tackles three of the most significant visible signs of aging: wrinkles, lack of firmness and uneven skin tone, and it’s a set that comes with a brightening day serum to diminish the appearance of age spots, as well as a firming complex to smooth and firm the skin. And then the night serum hydrates and encourages exfoliation.
Like the Luminate Day & Night serum, this one is also a set that comes with a serum for day and a serum for night, and it, too, contains the the brand’s Anti-Aging Complex. Both the day and night serums are designed to work together to target five signs of aging in mature skin — lines and wrinkles, lack of firmness, uneven pigmentation, fragility and dullness, so it’s like the jack of all trades.
Entering is easier than saying “yes!” to those tiny little sandwiches they serve at high tea.
