Christmas is always a great time for trying out new beauty products, either that you've received as a present or that you've snapped up in the sales, so I was really pleased to receive the Glory Days Day Cream from Lulu's Time Bomb range of beauty products, currently available on QVC.
Inside the slightly retro-style outer box, you actually get a very sleek, sophisticated spherical pot that looks very chic on your bathroom shelf. Sophie, who has been devouring the books about London from her recent book win, said it looks like London City Hall !
The cream itself is very thick so I was worried it would feel greasy but it doesn't at all, it sinks into the skin and is quickly absorbed. I have the sensation of a slight protective, moisturising film on my skin but this isn't unpleasant and stops my skin from tingling in the cold when I wait at the bus stop.
The blurb on the box explains : "Glory Days is not only an intensive moisturiser, but it also helps create a smooth, even-toned canvas-like finish to the skin. High levels of borage oil, an ingredient known for its scientifically proven anti-ageing properties helps leave skin looking plump, dewy and tight. A powerful blend of glucose, hyaluronic acid and white flower oils gets instantly absorbed, so skin doesn't have that greasy, wet feel often found with other day creams. Skin looks and feels smoother, brighter and tighter."
My skin feels deeply moisturised and protected but I'm not sure I've noticed it looking plumper. That may be an effect that will be more noticeable after using it for a longer period though. It smells absolutely lovely when you apply it, but the fragrance fades rapidly so it's not at all overpowering if you prefer subtle perfumes.
The Day Cream is available on QVC in a variety of beauty sets, with other complementary products. If you want a pampering treat for a slightly mature skin, it's perfect.
