Maybelline New York Mineral Power – Naturally Luminous Blush (Fresh Plum)

This reviewer is a mineral makeup virgin! I was most pleasantly surprised. Maybelline’s Naturally Luminous Blush is easy to apply (it’s essentially loose in its little pot so you use a blusher brush); light textured, and blended beautifully with my base. The best surprise of all was the colour – I have average-pale colouring and a lot of bronzers and the like can look jarringly orange – but Fresh Plum made me look naturally radiant. At 41 that’s no mean feat!

ROC Gentle Exfoliating Cream and Protective Re-sourcing Care (SPF15 hydrating fluid)

This is this reviewer’s second exposure to ROC skincare and the French brand is fast becoming a favourite. The Gentle Exfoliating cream was exactly that – gentle – and the particles were really fine – as I am a contact lense wearer the latter is crucial ‘cause there ALWAYS seems to be some residue no matter how careful you are, and big particles in eyes HURT.

The Protective Re-sourcing Care (SP15 hydrating fluid) has a great level of moisture and weight for my early forties skin and I suspect it would be excellent for those with slightly dry skin too. I’m always a bit wary of an SPF’s effect on how well a cream applies but this baby glides on and penetrates perfectly.


L’Oréal Age Re-Perfect Pro-calcium Radiance Enhancer Restoring Care and De-crinkles Eye and Lip Contours

Wow – I am an immediate devotee. Any moisturiser that can make me look instantly dewy and fresh has got my vote. Devoted to the very best reviews for you, dear readers, I waited until I looked really, really shattered and old prune-like to apply L’Oréal’s Radiance Enhancer Restoring Care and o-mi-god restore it did. Sensational.

Whether De-crinkle can genuinely reverse the smile line effect around my eyes can’t be proven in one test application– but I did notice the crinkly bit was nicely plumped and looked a little restored after using the cream – will continue!

Neutrogena Age Shield Face Sunblock – SPF 70

Ok readers – I made it past 40 with decent skin despite some quite enthusiastic abuse. So from now on it’s Juls versus the sun – no rays to speed the aging of this fair visage – I WILL apply sunscreen to my face every day.

For me the one test of a facial sunscreen is – will the SPF make it gummy and hard to apply? Not this baby. It has the non-greasy feel promised and I was able to literally slap and run. Good one Neutrogena.
