Middle Age Beauty Blog
I blog about the middle-aged body, soul, and mind. I also review the best products for middle-age skin. Here’s where you’ll find all my skincare reviews alongside blogs about wider topics such as hair care, mid-life psychology, and keeping fit and healthy.
I’ve been using Facetheory’s Exaglow Serum S10 science it first came out in September 2020, so I can give it a fair and honest review. I use it before I apply my amil-c whip cream, and Regina C retinol Moisturiser.
I get asked a lot what MoroccanoiI products I use on my hair (both my own hair and my LA weave) so I thought I’d do a round-up of what my favourites are at the moment, where to get them, and price info.
Middle age beauty Christmas 2020 competition! We all need a bit of a pick-me-up after the 2020 we’ve had! So, I’m running a middle age beauty Christmas competition to WIN five of my favourite skincare products…
I’m always being asked how I manage to work from home without a) murdering anyone, and b) becoming a social recluse. To be fair, I’m a bit of a hermit anyway, although I’m sure friends from my youth would disagree!
I’ve been using Facetheory’s regena m4 moisturiser for about 8 months now, so I feel I can give it a fair and honest review. I use it after I’ve applied the amil-c whip cream, which is also from Facetheory. I bought these two moisturisers specifically.
During the great COVID-19 lockdown of 2020, I obviously couldn’t see my hair technician to re-sew in my LA weave so I plumped for a set of Milk & Blush hair clip-ins to tide me over. Here’s what I thought of them.
Fanola does a hair mask, you say? Like me, you may have thought that Fanola isn’t known for anything outside of its no-yellow shampoo (turns yellow hair platinum – I have a review for that product coming soon).
Weleda Skin Food first captured my eye when I saw it on a particular ITV daytime show and it’s now a staple in my middle-aged skin bag of tricks. I will warn you that the cream is very thick! But it’s so lovely it can be forgiven for that.
It should come as no surprise that I LOVE this moisturising cream. I just feel like it’s completely different to everything else I’ve tried and I feel so much better about using natural ingredients and it has a gorgeous texture that glides over the skin.
I use YouTube to find and organise yoga routines as I can use it to practice anywhere using the YouTube app; on the TV, on my mobile phone, etc. I’ve organised my favourite yoga routines into playlists.
I was in the market to change my regular nail polish remover for an eco-friendlier alternative. I found Benecos natural nail polish remover, it’s acetone free and enriched with natural lemon and orange peel oil.
Facetheory Reviews are coming! I’ve been planning some Facetheory reviews for a while now and have around six anti-aging skincare products that I’ll be reviewing soon after trying them for the last year or so.
I’m in no way a fitness fanatic. I survived my 20s and 30s on cheese and crisps alone and went to the gym for the first time aged 37 (and subsequently quit a few months later). However, I’m now a yoga convert; promise not to preach.
After drying off from the shower, I applied the cream to my arms and legs first to see how well it would sink in. I had a bit of a panic when it didn’t absorb straight away as it looked a bit like I had smeared Sudocrem all over me.
When a skincare product is described as comedogenic, it means that one or more of its ingredients could clog our pores. It comes from the word ‘comedome’, which is a type of non-inflammatory acne (such as whiteheads).
I bought this yummy face cream following the fab experience I had with its big sister, Weleda Skin Food. While the original formula is great for quenching dehydrated skin, some days I need something lighter that I can quickly chuck on.
There’s a ton of different black peeling mask brands for sale and I’ve tried quite a few – they all seem to do the same job and perform equally as well. I’ve included lots of results photos in this review along with a TMI photo of a peel.
