Barbara Daly Face Lift

You need a lot of guts to name a product something as controversial as 'face lift' taking into considerations the repercussions it may carry if it does not perform but the Queen B of Tesco namely Barbara Daly does so and I have to admit, she comes out victorious.

It's an anti-ageing cream with an SPF of 10 and contains Apricot, Wheatgerm and Primrose Oil as main ingredients. Apricot naturally contains Vitamin A and helps control breakouts. Primrose Oil is meant to replenish skins hydration level.

Wheatgerm as we all know is godsend! Full of vitamin E and D, it not only promotes skin cell renewal but also shields skin from sun damage, protecting from premature ageing and wrinkles.

Just by having a look at the ingredients it contains, I feel it is obvious that the product is more suitable for those with Combination Skin.

The packaging is pretty cute and simple really. I like how all Barbara Daly products come in extremely dinky, compact containers. That way we get more product and a cheaper price tag! A good product never needs to rely on fancy packaging.

I have used a concealer from her range and it's an amazing dupe for MAC's Studio Fix Concealer. 

The cream itself is extremely thin, lotion like. Some may call it of a gel-like consistency. What struck me most was its apricot like colour which is pretty unusual these days in moisturisers. It almost looks a tinted moisturiser and the minuscule particles of shimmer inside made me think if this was actually a moisturizer?

The shimmer particles almost disappear when applied on to the skin, simply leaving a radiant 'lifted', brighter complexion. The cream sinks in well but still has a primer like tacky consistency leading me to conclude that you can indeed use it prior to foundation. I know quite a few people who already use this a primer.

Obviously you don't expect a miracle from any skin care products out there but constant use of this will definitely protect your skin from ageing, prevent breakouts and give you a fresh face every morning. I think the price tag, the deliciously fruity smell and the tinted moisturizer like texture is why this product is a cult-favorite and almost always out of stock.

You can purchase it at Tesco for £7. If you cannot find it in store, their website stocks it too.

Did you know Tesco will be running their first ever Beauty Awards this year with over 55 products shortlisted from the range of Skin care, Body care, Hair care and Make-up that they stock by their panelist of experts. I love such awards as I love knowing people's favourites and it makes shopping so much easier!

Plus Tesco will be giving away a massive treat of 50 shortlisted products to a voter, each week, for 16 weeks! Also, you will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a holiday to Antigua for two. Now is that an incentive you can ignore? Get voting! Plus its so much fun.
