Recently I cackled my cockles off watching the gals over at Lovely Girlie Bits vlogging about what they recommend purchasing with those No7 vouchers you get in Boots every other week. Fair play to Boots and No7, those vouchers come up so regularly, if you were an avid No7 user you would be set for a lifetime of affordable beauty treats. I am one of the million people who are guilty of throwing the vouchers into my bag and forgetting about them, or sometimes just not knowing why to redeem them against! For anyone not familiar, the infamous N07 vouchers come in two parts, €6.50 off No7 skin care and €4 off No7 make-up.
After watching Joanne and Karen over at Lovely Girlie Bits and a bit of product research, I went on the hunt for the No7 Beautiful Skin Overnight Radiance Boost. Suitable for all skin types (even sensitive skin, due to the hypoallergenic formula), this product claims to have you waking up to brighter and more radiant skin. It’s designed to boost the power of your usual beauty sleep and acts as a powerful pick-me-up for your skin. I’ve had a busy and tiresome few weeks and I felt my skin bearing the brunt of it. I was getting breakouts that I wouldn’t usually experience and my skin was looking dull and lacklustre. Time for reinforcements! It contains a blend of multivitamins, minerals,natural vitamin C and caffeine that promise to hydrate, energize, mildly exfoliate and renew the skin surface, hence boosting the natural radiance of your beautiful face! 🙂
It comes in a 30ml plastic bottle with a pump, that boasts the simple and classic No7 packaging that the brand is known for. The product itself once dispensed is a thin, white liquid that turns clear once massaged into skin. It is silky and has that lovely clean cosmetic smell that you would associate with other No7 products. A non greasy formula that is absorbed beautifully and super quickly into skin, this is a dream to use on freshly cleansed skin at the end of a long day!
So the big question is, did it deliver? I can’t say I woke up with overwhelmingly radiant skin. Between panda eyes, pillow marks on my face and hair that resembles a nest, it’s a regular occurence that I look like ‘the wild woman from Borneo’ first thing in the morning and this product ain’t promising to work miracles! That said, I do find my skin looks more even and plump upon waking after using this product. Where I do see the radiance is during the day. After washing my face and applying make-up, I’m pretty happy with how my skin is looking after using this product recently. I would certainly recommend it as a lovely skin boost and would be happy to re-purchase.
The No7 Beautiful Skin Overnight Radiance Boost will set you back €19.50 usually, with my €6.50 voucher I only forked out €13.00 for this lovely skin treat. Not sure I’d pay the regular price for it, but the vouchers come up so regularly, I would expect that I would rarely have to! It’s available from Boots online and in store. So next time you find yourself with a No7 voucher or just fancy a little skin treat, this is definitely one to try!
