No7 Protect & Perfect Trial: Intro

This is a quick introduction to a trial I am doing over the next month. I am using the infamous No7 Protect and Perfect range to give it a proper tried-and-tested review. The range how now been tailored for different ages, so there is something for everyone. I fall in to the 25-35 category, so Protect and Perfect is ideal for me – to face the first signs of ageing. The other ranges for each age bracket are outlined below:
o Protect & Perfect range is formulated for women aged 25-35

o Protect & Perfect Intense range is formulated for women aged 35-45
o Lift & Luminate range is formulated for women aged 45-60
o Restore & Renew range is formulated for women aged 60+

The products I am using for the trial are:
No7 Protect & Perfect Day Cream (SPF15) – £21, 50ml
No7 Protect & Perfect Night Cream – £22, 50ml
No7 Protect & Perfect Eye Cream – £18, 15ml
(FYI – at the time of posting there is a 3 for 2 across the No7 range…stock up!)
All together they are described as ‘a collection of hardworking products providing active ingredients that work together to firm fine lines and wrinkles, while making skin look younger and feel smoother’. The main thing about the Protect & Perfect range is that there are clinical trials that prove that the active ingredients actually work in helping to reduce the signs of ageing.
Basically, if you haven’t heard of Protect & Perfect then there is a pretty high chance you have been living under a rock… back in 2007 the original Protect & Perfect Serum made headlines when it was launched and promptly sold out within one day. But headlines aside, I want to know if it really does the job!
My main current skin concern are the fine lines that I am noticing more and more around my eyes, so these will be what I focus on for this trial. Below is a picture of my face, taken this past weekend – with make-up on and a close up on my eye area so I can judge how much of an impact the products have over the next few weeks. They aren’t deep caverns or anything, but as I have now passed the 25 mark (but not at the big 3-0 yet) this is one of the areas I am concerned about and want to keep looking as young as I can!

Here’s a bit of a close up of the eye so you can inspect the fine lines… (lucky you)!

So wish me luck on my trial, I will give you an update part way through and at the end. If you have anything you want to ask skin-care/anti-ageing wise then please leave a comment below!

    I’ve been using protect and perfect range for a few years now and I love it, I really would reccomend the lip moisturiser too.

    I have been using this range for a year now, I really love the scent and light texture of it!

    I will be curious to see your results and how you liked these products. Judging by all the hype that was generated from the serum alone (circa a big 2007 study showing that it was as effective as Retina without a prescription but then later showing that Boots actually paid for the research done which shows bias in the study), it’s a line that has gained popularity. If I may, I wouldn’t expect big results from the eye cream because although there are a good deal of antioxidants in it, none of them have any proven benefit for the eye area.

    ingredients works rapidly but organic is the best.

    So glad you are doing this – I have been using the eye cream but really inconsistently so obvs not seen much result. I’d love to try these but it just seems a bit too much money to splash out. I’m in the same age bracket as you so I can’t wait to see how you get on! x

    Can’t wait to see your results! I’ve just passed the 25 mark and apparently this is when you should start using an eye cream, so will wait for progress with interest!! 🙂
