When I was younger I never really had a ‘beauty regime’ as such, I NEVER use soap on my face, have only ever really used a very light moisturiser and when I remembered I would use a light eye cream but as I said, that was when I was younger. As I approached the end of my twenties I did start to notice a difference in my skin, it started to look more dry and didn’t have the same elasticity anymore. I realised then that I need to step up my game and start to take care of myself if I wanted to look younger for longer but I don’t have masses of spare cash to spend on myself so as much as I would like to buy the fancy stuff from the beauty counters in department stores so I do my beauty on a budget.
Thankfully, Supermarkets have stepped up their game too and have started to offer fantastic beauty products to rival their higher priced rivals and they are doing it very well. Asda now stocks the NSPA range, created, endorsed and used by the experts at Nirvana Spa the UK’s No.1 Day Spa; from super charged moisture boosters to pore-minimising complexion transformers the latest editions to NSPA’s luxurious beauty range are guaranteed to leave your skin feeling like it’s had a top-to-toe spa experience. All products have been benchmarked against some of the beauty industries leading luxury brands with prices starting at just £4.
I am currently trialling these little beauty on a budget products;
Double Action Youth Serum which firms and helps to reduce fine lines. It contains Hyaluronic Acid, boosts collagen and has firming Algae extract. It can be used alone or before your daily moisturiser by applying using your fingertips in a circular motions or by patting gently. It has a very light scent and absorbs very quickly and easily into the skin without leaving it feeling greasy and over-saturated.
Spa Treatment in a Box helps to improve skin tone and radiance. It has a Glycolic Peel which removes a layer of dead skin cells to reveal a renewed and refined skin complextion. The treatment is then followed up with a Brightening Day Cream with SPF15 to hydrate and protect, leaving skin feeling soft and rejuvenated. Now I must admit that initially I was nervous about the Glycolic Peel but once I had taken the plunge I LOVED the feeling as I removed the dried gel from my face. It reminded me of my days at Primary School peeling PVA glue from my hands. It felt exactly as it had been described, my face felt refreshed and so smooth with the Brightening Day Cream giving it the gentle nourishment it deserved.
Finally as the day draws to a close and I have cleansed away the grime of the day I give my skin one last treat with the Night Repair Cream where repairing ceramides work overnight to help strengthen and protect cells whilst I am sleeping.
I’m certainly not saying that I look anything like I did in my twenties anymore but my skin is starting to feel and look better and I don’t worry so much about leaving the house without makeup on (which is good because I struggle for time in the mornings).
