Two or three years ago I was on the receiving end of a makeover with a beauty rep from Bobbie Brown and we got into a discussion over beauty products from drug stores such as CVS or Walgreens and he told me that he had several favorites. I was surprised – I mean VERY surprised – at his comment. Do drug stores sell really good skincare products? I continued my discussion with my wonderful hair stylist, Jimmy, a few weeks later and he agreed. You can find some great skincare if you shop carefully. He advised me to look for the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval because it wasn’t easily given awarded to products. Even more interesting, many department store brands don’t have ‘the seal’ even though they carry a higher price point. So I filed that knowledge until last December.
My friend, Judy, who does amazing skincare therapies such as facials, microderms, etc. for me asked me if I had heard of Boots or No. 7. “It’s available at Walgreens or CVS and Target.” I stopped to listen behind those amazing lavender infused eye pads. Hmmmm. Again, filed for future use… after all it was the holidays. But we now fast forward to a few weeks ago. “Are you using the No. 7 I mentioned?” Judy asked at my next visit. “I have many clients using it and they are seeing an amazing difference on their skin”. So! I knew then, I needed to check this intel out – for you AND me!
Boots/No.7 Skincare has been around for years. It’s from the UK and has gotten rave reviews. In fact seven of their products in the skincare line have – yes, The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval! So I purchased two of the products – Lift and Luminate and the Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil – which, yes, have the Seal from Good Housekeeping. I have several friends now using it and and I must say, this is an excellent product. My skin is smoother. Hydrated. Plus! It’s got a great price point since it has been around so long, but don’t think ‘cheap’.
Another thing, too. I purchased mine at Walgreens initially, but have seen it at CVS and Target. These stores do many sales as you know and I actually got to do a BOGO last week so I got THREE for the price of two! It doesn’t take a lot of product either so a little goes a long way. In one week I began to see many of those small lines start to fade away.
Check their site out and see what interests you. So many products are available. There is even a mens skincare line, too. Of course you have to talk your man into using it daily – twice daily. That may prove to be a little more difficult. But! finding Boots No. 7 is not.
