So, when I was sent these products to try I was definitely intrigued… I’m 26 so not exactly tucking my boobs into my jeans just yet, but I am always keen to have a go at anything ‘anti-aging’ on the market.
Firstly – The YouthFul Hands and Feet lotion (pictured) claims to be ‘invisible gloves and socks’, which aside from sounding a bit creepy when you really think about it… has a decent point. Not many people really respect the fact their hands and feet actually do a f-tonne of work all the time, and actually are one of the biggest giveaways of someones age. You can apply serum to your mug like a mad-man day and night, but if you don’t take care of your extremities then you’ll look a bit like a Picasso-esque photoshop nightmare. Aka, not great.
So… does this work? Actually i’d say yes. It’s definitely an instant fix, and truthfully I’m not sure about the longevity/ changes over time because i’ve only been sampling this for about a week. But, so far, so good. It definitely brightens and smooths the appearance of your hands and feet. I would compare it slightly to heel repair cream, so moisturising in a heavy way without being overtly greasy. If you have chapped/generally worse-for-wear hands or feet (especially now it’s sandal season!)… it’s so worth giving it a go.
The second thing from Transformulas that I have been testing out recently is the ‘Lip Volume’ lip plumping gel. This is a novel thing for me because as much as I have flirted in the past with a variant of lip plumping devices, this is slightly different in the manner of application and results. Some lip plumpers (for those of you who haven’t taken the plunge as it were…), are extremely violent and give you a swollen look in the way that a punch to the face, or a birds eye chilli may. Not ideal.
This isn’t the same thing at all. Only slightly tingly on the lips, you pop this on a couple of times a day for the first few days and then once a day after that because it’s more of a developing treatment, than something that gives you the graphic instant big lip look.
I like both of these products and I totally recommend them for anyone who is feeling a little aged or rough-around-the-edges. If you want to pick them up, you can find them here!
Lots of Love,
