When it comes to skincare, Boots’ No7 is a firm favourite.
Their Protect & Perfect range has been a staple in toiletry bags across the country ever since it launched back in 2007 for its ability to cater to a diverse range of skincare needs.
Beauty lovers jumped into action when the brand introduced targeted skincare ranges for all ages, revealing that customers should actually also be using skincare to take preventative action in their early years, rather than solely trying to reverse the damage later on in life.
And with the advancement of skincare and makeup since, beauty enthusiasts have been able to use the cocktail of products available on the market to come up with their ideal regime.
But even with all the great BB creams, CC creams and tinted moisturisers out there, finding a hybrid that’s heavy enough to give you an airbrushed look without drying your face out or making your skin erupt in blemishes isn’t easy.
Until No7 got involved.
Their new Protect & Perfect Advanced All In One Foundation, which has sold one bottle every 13 seconds since launching last month, uses the brand’s skincare knowledge to mix makeup and skincare into one bottle.
The foundation uses anti-wrinkle technology from the brand’s infamous Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum (opens in new tab) to reduce the appearance of fine lines over a period of prolonged use, while the formula’s blurring particles will disguise any imperfections.
And say goodbye to that cakey creased look, as the medium coverage foundation’s flexible polymer film will also stop the product from sinking into any existing wrinkles.
The clever formula also uses vitamins E and C to block free radicals from the environment, reducing the risk of skin pigmentation.
And this is all topped off with a hefty dose of SPF 50 to make sure that the skin is protected from UVA and UVB damage.
Available in 14 shades, the foundation-serum hybrid is available in Boots stores across and on the retailer’s website for only £17.
