Over the past ten years Boots No7 has dominated the beauty industry by creating a clinically proven range of serums to address the signs of ageing. In 2007 No7 Protect & Perfect serum had us queuing to get our hands on the product that the BBC Horizon programme had proven to be as effective as a prescription only product.
2016 saw No7 launch an even more powerful serum, Lift & Luminate, aimed at women 45-60 who were looking to address three key signs of ageing skin. Lines and wrinkles, firmness and skin tone. Again the serum has been a success with clinically proven results which show that the serum works even better when used with other products from the Lift & Luminate range. In fact 88% of women saw even better results when they used the new Lift & Luminate Day Cream with the serum.
The formulation of the Lift & Luminate Serum has proved to be so effective that No7 has reformulated the entire Lift & Luminate range to include the same powerful ingredients. When used together the products help to reduce wrinkles, skin appears more lifted and firmer and the complexion brighter and skin tone more even.
Matrixyl 3000 Plus is a powerful peptide blend which encourages the skin to produce more collagen which is like scaffolding for the skin, keeping it firm and plump. The tiny molecules in Matrixyl 3000 Plus are small enough to penetrate the skin and help restore a more youthful appearance.
Hyaluronic acid aids hydration by retaining moisture in the skin keeping it looking smooth and plump.
Hibiscus extract is also rich in peptides and amino acids. It has antioxidant properties and can help skin retain moisture. Its mild exfoliating effect assists with cell turnover resulting in a more even and clear skin tone.
Lightening complex, which contains embilica from the Indian gooseberry and vitamin C, works to rebalance melanin content within the skin. It’s the over production of melanin that appears as uneven pigmentation on your skin often only noticed when you’re over 40.
No7 Lift and Luminate range comprises of four targeted products which work in synergy to address the skin concerns we have in our fifties; the appearance of lines and wrinkles, the loss of firmness, elasticity, pigmentation and uneven skin tone.

I was 47 when Boots launched their Protect & Perfect serum and looking back I can clearly see how my skin has changed in the past ten years. And I am pleased to say that in many ways it’s improved. Although the volume has decreased in my checks I am working hard to keeps the lines and wrinkles at bay and pigmentation to a minimum.
I’ve learnt which key ingredients work for my skin and I’m delighted to see that many are included in the No7 Lift & Luminate range. Protecting my skin from the sun has been the most powerful action I’ve taken, using a product containing an SPF is vital, so the Lift & Luminate Day Cream and Eye Cream definitely tick that box.
Serums are wonderful at quickly delivering key ingredients to your skin but they don’t moisturise so it’s essential to use a day and night cream to compliment them. The fact that the Lift & Luminate range has the same key ingredients means they are working in synergy with each other as well as with your skin. It’s been proven that these products work better together so for the next four weeks I will be testing them exclusively to see how they can improve my skin. I’ll report back soon.
Boots No7 Lift & Luminate range starts at £17.00 and can be found in Boots stores and online
