New Outfit Post - A Biker & Joggers

Happy Friday ladies :-)  I had a lovely day in London yesterday at the various press days & of course a very quick spot of shopping ;-) but it's back to reality today & my 'day' job.  So keeping things nice & simples for a busy day in the office catching up from yesterday & attempting to clear the inbox before the start of the weekend!

A quick heads up on a new moisturiser that I've been using.  Now I've had a few requests to share my skincare & make up routines - which is on the list of blogs to do (pinky promise!) but in the meantime I thought I'd quickly tell you about a great new face cream I've recently discovered.

I was lucky enough to be contacted by Vichy to see if I'd be interested in trying their new Liftactiv Supreme face cream.  Naturally I said yes purely out of interest but if I'm honest not expecting it to make much of an impact from my existing cream.




Vichy Liftactiv Supreme Face Cream, My Midlife Fashion


Before I share with you my thoughts on the cream let me tell you a bit about the cream.  Firstly the cream comes in two versions one for normal to combination skin & the other for dry to very dry skin & has been designed to be intensely moisturising & to combat the signs of ageing.  So nothing new there then!  But on top of that it utilises rhamnose a natural anti-ageing ingredient that not only targets the signs of ageing but also firms & boasts radiance whilst brightening a tired & fatigued complexion.  Plus its paraben free & hypoallergenic.  The company even go as far as to say that it 'creates an instant soft-focus appearance with an incredible smoothing effect'.


Vichy Liftactiv Supreme Face Cream, My Midlife Fashion


I've now been using the normal to combination skin version for four weeks & have to say I was a bit anxious at first about using a face cream that is described as intensely moisturising as I'm not one to love heavy creams on my face & don't like the feel of cream if it doesn't sink in immediately.  But this moisturiser is lovely & light & really does soak into the skin instantly so I didn't feel as if I was wearing it & a little really does go a long way.

As to the appearance of my skin I would say it has definitely made an impact, in fact I felt I saw a difference in a matter of days. But most importantly my husband (not having read nor having been told that I was using the face cream or the claims it came with) commented that my skin looked softer, smoother & more youthful with a glow.  Which to me says it all & for the hubby puts him in my good books that he said such lovely things about my skin & more importantly that he's even noticed!  So I think it's safe to say I'm now a convert!

So has anyone else tried this pot of magic or heard great things about it?  I'd love to hear your thoughts but based on my experience I'd definitely recommend it & am most certainly going to be continuing my daily application.

Finally before I crack on with work don't forget today's the last day of Boden's 25% off everything (see here) & don't forget to use code W4W3.

Right I'd better get back to work - happy weekend & more importantly happy wine o'clock.......think I may have a bit of celebrating to do as, as some of you have noticed I'm in this month's (June's) editions of Prima Magazine & Woman & Home & yes I'm constantly pinching myself to check I'm not dreaming!!
