Since I started talking about beauty and fashion topics, skin care is one of those things that most of us over 50 women are interested in. I mean, hasn’t anti-aging been a hot topic for years now? We baby boomers are looking for the Fountain of Youth and refuse to crumble in a heap of frump and wrinkles without at least a fighting chance to battle that inevitable thing we call old age. Am I right? We can’t conquer it completely, but I think taking care of our skin is one way to slow down the aging process.
I’ve tried all sorts of skin care products over the years and you will never hear me claim on this blog that I have the answer to anti-aging completely figured out. I’ve used expensive skin care lines and cheaper ones and honestly, I couldn’t tell a whole lot of difference between the two. I just can’t see spending a ton of money on skincare products if it’s not really evident that they are working any better than the cheaper more cost effective ones and that seems to be the consensus from beauty product reviews that I’ve read.
One that I have bought recently and that is already in my beauty drawer is Boots No. 7, from England. I began hearing about this company a few years ago and heard and read some good reviews, so I started using their serum and Night Cream in the last few months. Target has their whole line in the stores. Has it turned back the clock? I can’t claim that, but I do know that it’s a good idea to use something on your skin and getting into a beauty regimen for day and night is a very good thing. So, I will continue to use anti-aging products and take care of my skin the best I can and hope for the best!
When Boots No. 7 contacted me about sending me more of their products, I was thrilled. And they have a giveaway scheduled too, so that 4 of my readers can try out some products as well.
They sent me several things to try out, so I will definitely be using these to see what I like the best. From Restore and Renew Day Cream and Night Cream, to Restore and Renew Day and Night serum, I’ll try these out and see how they work. I also got Beautiful Skin cleansing balm, Botanics Microdermabrasion Polish, mascara, Photo Fix Wrinkle Filler and Primer, Youthful Replenishing Facial oil, and a couple of lipsticks.
Day and Night Cream will come in handy for under my makeup and I’ll use the night cream at bedtime. See that deep rose colored crayon? That’s a High Shine lip crayon and I really like the way it goes on. It’s creamy and smooth and the Berry color is really nice for fall and winter.
Boots No. 7 is giving away 4 Anti-aging packages to 4 of my readers! I’m so excited to share this with you all.
All you have to do is sign in the Rafflecopter widget with your email and checking the comment box, then leave your comment here on this post. Tell me which one of these you would like to try the most! I went for Restore and Renew, but they have other products as well. You can also gain extra entries by following Boots No. 7 on Facebook.
I have 4 of these prizes to award and will choose winners at random, so you may not be able to specifically choose the one you want, but I will try to allocate them.

In case you haven’t noticed, I really like to eat. I think I'm annoying some of my Instagram friends with my food posts, but I just can't help it!
I love good tasting food, but, I don’t always love to cook. That's where Blue Apron comes in handy.
Meal planning is one of those things that is difficult for some of us. I’ll admit it, for me cooking for myself is not always easy. I don’t always … Read More»
