For the last two months I've been trying out a new product, new for me that is, not new to the beauty industry, as I've never tried a neck cream before and thought that The Secret Is Out Neck and Decollete Firming Cream from Dr Nick Lowe would be a good place to start. After all, I regularly spend a small fortune on facial skincare products to keep my skin looking young and fresh but what's the point if my neck and decollete look old and crinkly?
Dr Nick Lowe
The Secret Is Out Neck & Decollete Firming Cream
|£29.99 for 50ml from Boots|
The Secret Is Out Neck and Decollete Firming Cream from Dr Nick Lowe is a thick, luxurious cream that is designed to prevent, protect and repair the skin. It actually targets the signs of skin damage that occur to the neck and chest area which are often the tell tale signs of age. I've seen so many women with great wrinkle free skin on their face- either through a good face cream, or botox- but their neck looks saggy and the top of their chest full of lines that become more prominent with a sun tan. The sun is one of the biggest causes of premature ageing and this cream helps to combat that as it contains SPF 15 and advanced UVA/UVB protection to protect the skin against sun damage now and in the future. I think if I can do as much to prevent this happening as possible while I'm young then it can only benefit me in the future. Everyone is going to get old eventually but I'd like to stay looking young for as long as possible.
The Neck and Decollete Firming Cream has a lifting, restructuring and protective formula that is full of skin tighteners, anti wrinkle peptides, skin restructuring extracts and fatty acids which help to improve the skins elasticity, therefore reducing the chance of wrinkles, firm and tone the neck and chest area and target irregularities in pigmentation. Oh and what specifically are these super skin ingredients you may ask? Well theres a great website for top dermatologist Dr Nick Low that explains all about this super cream's ingredients.
Above all, this cream claims that with regular use, the appearance of skin will be improved and look more youthful, toned and radiant and wrinkles will appear reduced.
|Dr Nick Lowe Top Skin Secret: "Skin on the neck and chest can age more quickly and appear older than facial skin. Make twice daily care for this delicate area an essential part of your skincare regime"|
To use, I simply massage it into my neck and chest area in upward stroking movements (always in an upwards direction so as to not encourage the skin to sag) after I've been in the shower. It can be used once or twice daily and I find that once is enough as it is so moisturising and the hydration it gives the skin is long lasting. I only tend to apply it twice if I'm going on a night out or somewhere special as it is a lovely treat to use. Once applied, the cream is quite quickly absorbed which I was surprised about as it is so thick. Aside from being a luxurious, relaxing treat, I wasn't expecting the cream to show results quite so quickly. Products like this are usually about preventing the ageing of the skin for the future which I believe this product would do but it does definitely improve the appearance of the skin in the present too. It made my skin, particularly after my holiday, very soft and almost plump looking which in turn made the fine lines on my chest blur and keep looking youthful.
I think this is great for those who are concerned about ageing and who want to look after their skin in general. Add this to your skincare routine and I'm sure you'll not look back!
The Dr Nick Lowe The Secret Is Out Neck & Decollete Firming Cream is available from Boots for £29.99 for 50ml. A little goes a long way with this cream so a 50ml pot should last you months!
What Dr Nick Lowe products have you used? Can you recommend a good neck and decollete cream to me?
