No7 Serum Review /
New Monday, New week, new product review! With a product that I am falling in love with, it’s the “Lift & Luminate” Triple Action serum by No7.
No7 is the self proclaimed “#1 serum brand in the USA” and it incorporates all the ingredient for success:
– hypoallergenic with no BS ingredients and nasties
– and reasonably priced. This serum retails at $33.99 for 30ml / 1 fl. oz. Also available in a bigger size: $43.99 for 50 ml / 1.69 fl. oz (which is definitely the size I’m going for when I’ll reorder).
And it works!!! Before buying it from Ulta, I research about it and all the reviews I read about this serum were praising it, so I wanted in and this “Lift & Luminate” Triple Action serum by No7 didn’t disappoint.
Lately I’ve been feeling like my skin was a tad sagging (meaning that when I sleep or lie down on the side, I feel my face dripping down – just a feeling but not a nice one, God bless gravity). Haven’t had this bothering feeling since I’ve started using the No7 serum 3 weeks ago. And I feel that the wrinkles on my forehead that I’ve been obsessing about for the past couple months are actually disappearing. There are still there if I move my forehead and brows (haven’t done botox ever) but there are not as visible as before. My skin feels tighter and hydrated at a deeper level. And all that for $33.99. Me likey.
It’s a serum delivers 3 clinically proven results: visible reduction in wrinkles (thanks to their Matrixyl 3000 Plus, their star ingredient, which is an anti-wrinkle peptide), improved firmness (thanks to hyaluronic acid) and a more even skin tone (thanks to vitamin C).
It has a really nice light and silky texture that goes on beautifully on the skin. Quickly absorbed. No residues. No shine.
For which skin type?
It is hypoallergenic and is suited for all skin types. Would recommend when you’re over 30.
When to use it?
After misting and eye creaming. Check out this post on how to successfully layer your creams and serums the right order ;).
AM and PM.

Possible skin irritant / pimple triggers:
Fragrance. Yet my skin is highly sensitive and reactive and I haven’t had any bad reactions nor pimples.
Bottom line is that I adore this serum. Really well done for a drugstore brand (No7 is Boots’ child). Great value for money. Kudos No7.
