The two things I love most about No 7 products are the price and the softness. It’s also a bonus they don’t leave me with an extensive, lumpy, unhappy rash on my overly sensitive face like so many products that came before them. I realised I could use No 7 without fear of a break out about 2 years ago and I jumped on board the No 7 boat for life.
I used to only use their moisturiser and face wipes, but since I ditched wipes, got a boots card and actually used one those vouchers you ALWAYS get in boots for £5 on a mini haul, I’ve started using everything.
I went in a couple of weeks ago and used their skin matching service to buy my first foundation in 4 years (I know). I’ve always managed to somehow have both frying pan oily and lizard dry skin at the same time so foundation basically falls off or dries up and makes my face look like an old tree.
After getting the whole combination skin thing under better control (thank you forever Elemis Tri-enzyme face wash), my sister recommend I go get the skin matching done. I left Boots with a properly matched (cool beige because I’m the colour of milk) ‘Airbrush Away’ foundation, mascara, foundation brush and new moisturiser.
If you need something light, medium coverage and reasonably priced, I couldn’t recommend it more. The colour matching makes such an enormous difference and it looks invisible, just like you have clear, soft and even skin- the whole point right? I’m a foundation novice but I’m so happy with it. The brush is really worthwhile too. It’s the perfect size even for moon faces like mine.
I also use No 7 to get all my make up off these days. Their ‘Melting Gel Cleanser’ which I’ve been using for about 3 months first came into play when my skin was suddenly so dry it was coming off in strips. An attractiveness peak in my life. It’s super soft and you don’t even feel like you need to moisturise after and it’s ideal for washing off make up or just as a first cleanse. If you need to fix some dry skin give this a whirl. It took about two days of use to make a really noticeable difference. Same with the body wash.
Another face wash winner is their foaming cleanser. I know foam washes are known to be drying but this stuff left me with clearer skin really fast and I didn’t break out, so I added it to immediately to my ‘no risk of cheek hives’ hall of fame. Also good at getting off make up.
The ‘Dramatic Lift’ mascara is just mascara but a firm 9/10. Good brush, not clumpy, long lashes.
And lastly their moisturiser is perfection. Good for very sensitive medium dry skin, lasts a good amount of time and doesn’t cling for ages when you’re trying to get ready. They also do a good thick night cream which I need to repurchase.
That’s probably enough No 7 worshipping (this isn’t sponsored or anything, it’s just true love), but my summer face is definitely going to top up my boots card points.
