Middle Aged Beauty Blogger

I’m a middle-aged beauty blogger from the UK and started this blog to talk about my experiences with different beauty products as a middle-aged woman. I’ve always enjoyed decent skin as I keep out of the sun, wear minimal make-up and am choosy about what I put on my face and body. I thought my experiences may help other women of a ‘certain age’ as I found it hard to find reviews I could trust. That’s how Middle Age Beauty dot com was born.

My look changes A LOT. I can go from four-inch hair to 22-inch with the help of my trusty hair extensionist and I like to change my hair colour regularly. I use vegetable dye to do this (usually La Riche Directions or Adore) and my base is bleached so I can easily achieve crazy colours without piling on further damage.

I’ve added captions to the photos on this page to show what may have enhanced my look in the photo (usually extensions and/or a filter). I believe in transparency on beauty blogs and, although I do believe have great skin, I do have signs of ageing and my skin isn’t perfectly smooth.

2019 (age 44)

I’m wearing an LA weave & pic has a Snapchat filter.

2015 (age 40)

I’m wearing bonded extensions and there’s no filter on this pic.

2017 (age 42)

Bonded extensions, and I think a SnapChat filter used as I look about 20!

2015 (age 40)

No extensions, no filter.

2055 (age 80)

SnapChat’s predicti0on of what I’ll look like at 80. Looks pretty accurate.

2015 (age 40)

Bonded extensions with no filter.

2015 (age 40)

No extensions, no filter.

2017 (age 42)

Taken with a front-facing camera so a bit pixelated (which can give a smoother skin appearance).

2015 (age 40)

Clearly no filter. Wearing my favourite Quidditch t-shirt.

2020 (age 45)

SnapChat filter – I could never get away with that red lip.

My latest beauty reviews

Absolute Collagen

Absolute Collagen was not a brand I’d come across before 2020 but with some users of the brand reporting visible improvements to their skin and hair/scalp condition, I wanted to see what it could do for me.

Body Shop British Rose Face Mask

The marketing spiel about this face mask promises to quench your skin and give a youthful, dewy glow after use. I’ve mainly used this when having a bath so the results may have been skewed with my plumped pink face from the heat.

Facetheory Exaglow Serum Review

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.

Moroccanoil hair care reviews

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.

Christmas competition

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…

Working from home tips

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!
