        Comments about No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum:

        Within one week of use of this product, my family (the only ones who typically see me without makeup!) began saying my face looked glowing. And they didn't even know I'd started using something different on my skin. I have uneven tone and this serum has improved the natural appearance of my skin on my face and neck. I love how lightweight it is and the smooth feel and look it gives, especially on my neck which has a tendency towards appearing dry even if not. The only con is, it's not cheap and one bottle does not last very long. And because the bottle is white, you don't know you're almost out until you go to pump and nothing comes out. Hurry, go online and order more! Lol...

                        A:

                        Thank you for reaching out! Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum is a wonderful serum that addresses lines & wrinkles, but it doesn't help uneven skin tone (discoloration or dark spots.)

                        From what you shared, we think you'll do better with the Lift & Luminate Skincare System (Item #2501875). The serum will be your workhorse anti-aging solution, and the included day and night creams will keep the anti-aging benefits going as they deliver beautifully hydrated, softer skin. The Lift & Luminate family of products addresses lines & wrinkles, loss of firmness and uneven skin tone.

                        If you need an eye cream, you'll love Restore & Renew Eye Cream (Item #2255995). This is a rich hydrating eye cream that will deeply nourish, firm and even out the skin tone around the eye area. We hope this information is helpful for you and wish you the best!

                        A:

                        Thank you for reaching out! No7 does have skincare range for mature and dry skin that we think you'll love.

                        Restore & Renew Day & Night Serum (Item #2290169) targets lines & wrinkles, loss of firmness, uneven skin tone (discoloration, dark spots), dryness and fragile skin. This is a serum duo, and both the day and night serum are together in the box. In the morning, use the Day Serum after cleansing and before moisturizing, and in the evening you'll use the Night Serum after cleansing and before moisturizing.

                        If you're looking for your next favorite moisturizers, we think you'll love Restore & Renew Day Cream (Item #2255985), Night Cream (Item #2255986) and Eye Cream (Item #2255995). These are specially formulated to nourish and support mature skin by providing intense hydration without feeling heavy or greasy, as well as firming and smoothing the skin.

                        For your convenience, the Day & Night Serum, Day Cream and Night Cream are available together as the Restore & Renew Skincare System (Item #2303183). We hope this is helpful for you and wish you the best!

                        A:

                        Thank you for reaching out with your concern. Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum is clinically proven to visibly reduce the appearance of lines & wrinkles.

                        We aren't sure if you mean pits and indentations in your skin or dark marks from acne. If you mean pits or indentations, some customers have shared that as their skin became firmer (around a year or more of use) the indentations began to soften. If you mean dark marks, there are no ingredients in this serum that address discoloration. However, this does encourage increased cell renewal which can help move the damaged cells off more quickly and allow the newer, healthier cells to come through. Because of this you might see these marks fading more quickly than they would on their own. In either case, we can't guarantee that you will experience these results and are only sharing feedback from some customers in the hopes that it's helpful for you.

                        We hope this information helps and wish you the best!

                      Would this product be okay to use if I am 23? I've noticed that I am getting wrinkles which is normal but I would like to make them less noticeable. also is there any eye creams anyone would like to recommend? I have combination skin and don't use any special creams just your typical daily moisturizer (cetaphil)

                        A:

                        Very good question, thank you for asking! Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum addresses lines & wrinkles that are a bit more established than what we would expect to see if you're 23 years old.

                        Instead, Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum (Item #2280740) addresses fine lines and the first signs of aging and will be perfect for you. Not only does this have powerful ingredients to reduce the appearance of lines, it also uses our patented antioxidant complex to protect skin from future signs of aging plus a boost of salicylic acid to help keep pores clear and skin looking radiant. You'll use this morning and evening after cleansing and before your moisturizer.

                        We're so happy you asked about eye cream! Early Defence Eye Cream (Item #2303182) is specially designed to protect the delicate skin around your eyes. After cleansing and applying your serum, use your ring fingers to pat a small amount of this eye cream around your orbital bone.

                        If you need a day cream and night cream, we think you'll love Early Defence Day Cream (Item #2303180) and Night Cream (Item #2303181). The Early Defence range protects and boosts young skin's natural defenses and helps fight those first fine lines to keep it looking younger for longer. The Day and Night Creams both have a light texture, absorb quickly and will not feel heavy on your skin. The Day, Night and Eye Creams are also available together as a set for your convenience (Item #2501876).

                        We hope this answers your question. Please reach out if we can be of further assistance to you!

                      I am 33 and a mother of 2 boys. I break out easily so I have never commited to any kind of skin care. I have started to notice a lil uneven skin, lil lines around corners of my eyes, bad bags under my eyes and dry and oily at times....

                      I need to know exactly what to get. I barely get to pee alone so it will have to be easy.

                      I watch dr phil all the time and he is always having women use this serum but he fails to say if it will work solely on its own with nothing else

                      I wash my face in the shower with an oatmeal infused bar of soap....it is made for the whole body actually lol.

                      I don't wash my face at night just when I shower in thr mornings.

                      Can I use JUST this serum and nothing else and get results.

                      If so....I will buy it asap lol

                        A:

                        Thank you for being so specific with your concerns and routine- it really helps us out! Being a busy mom can take its toll on skin, and we're happy to help you with an easy skincare routine.

                        Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum is clinically proven to help reduce lines & wrinkles. Serums in general target very specific concerns with concentrated ingredients, but because they are so concentrated they still need a moisturizer on top so you'll see the very best results. When this serum was tested it was used morning and evening after cleansing and under a moisturizer. That being said, using this every morning by itself is still better than not using it at all, we just can't guarantee that you'll see the same kind of results.

                        If you'd like to use a moisturizer over this in the mornings, we think you'll love Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Normal/Oily Skin (Item #2251279). This is a non-pore blocking cream that helps keep pores clear and minimize shine throughout the day, and it also helps balance oil production.

                        If you're open to it, the very best way to take care of the lines around our eyes is with an eye cream. To help with what you shared we recommend Youthful Eye Serum (Item #2284704). This will help with fine lines, dark circles and puffiness.

                        We know this sounds like a lot but this entire routine will only take 2 minutes. So if you'd like to use what we suggested here, this is what you'll do: After you wash your face, you'll use a fat blueberry-sized amount of the serum and massage it in. Next use a small amount (about the size of a grain of rice) of the eye serum and pat it around your orbital bone. Finally, use a dime-to-nickel sized amount of the moisturizer. It really is a very fast routine and then you're set and ready to go!

                        If you're not ready for this yet, that's ok, too. Start using the serum on its own and when your boys start giving you a little bit more time for yourself we'll be happy to help you out with a customized recommendation to suit you!

                    • Q:

                      I'm 34, with combo skin, occasional breakouts, a few lines on my forehead, and now under my eyes. My skin has discoloration from pregnancies the last few years. I still nurse my youngest child so my hormones aren't quite regulated and am sleep deprived. Should I use protect and perfect advanced or intense advanced? I read I should possibly start using retinol. Thanks so much!

                        Thank you for giving us such a clear picture your concerns! With everything you shared, Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum is what we recommend for you. For the very best results you'll want to use this after cleansing and before your moisturizer morning and evening.

                        Regarding discoloration from hormones, we encourage you to consult your health care provider. We do have products that are effective at evening out skin tone, but only when the discoloration is from overexposure to the sun or age. Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you and we wish you the best!

                        Thank you for asking! Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum primarily helps lines & wrinkles.

                        Since you're looking for more powerful firming, we recommend using Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum (Item #2501874). This is our first serum with three clinically proven claims: it visibly reduces wrinkles, improves firmness and evens out skin tone. Because it improves firmness we think this would be the better product for your concern of crepey skin.

                        We recommend treating your neck as you do your face, as some women forget to take care of this delicate area, and we're happy you are! Regarding what you'll see, we only tested this product for results on the face and we don't make specific claims as to what results you'll see for your neck. Many customers share that this helps the skin of their neck as it does for their face. To ensure you see the best results, please use this morning and evening after cleansing and follow it with your moisturizer. We hope this is helpful for you!

                        Good question! Most customers have their Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum for about 3 months, only treating their face and possibly their neck. Customers who also like to use this on their decollete will go through it a little faster. One tip to ensuring you don't have to over-use your product is to leave your skin a little damp after cleansing (pat gently with your towel to leave some moisture); this allows the serum to glide onto the skin instead of being absorbed too quickly in one area. This serum will work to reduce the appearance of lines, regardless of this source.

                        If you feel your lines are very deep, you may get better results from using our Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum (Item #2501874). It is our first serum with 3 clinically proven claims: it visibly reduces wrinkles, improves firmness and evens out skin tone.

                        Both serums are the same size and will last you the same amount of time.

                        Whichever serum you decide is right for you, in order to achieve the best results you'll want to use it morning and evening after cleansing and before your moisturizer. We hope this helps!

                        Terrific question! Both Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum and Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum address deeper lines and loss of firmness. The main difference is that Lift & Luminate Triple Action also works to correct uneven skin tone (discoloration & dark spots). If you have dark spots and are looking for a more even skin tone, you'll love using Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum. If you don't have issues with discoloration then we think you'll prefer Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum. We hope this helps!

                      I have oily skin with occasional dryness and I am prone to breakouts. I have just purchased the Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Day cream, Night cream and Serum and I am just wondering if these are the correct products for my skin type. Are they oil free? I am 40 so I also need products that are anti aging.

                        Thank you for reaching out! These products are formulated to be non-pore blocking. While everyone's skin is different, they should not contribute to oiliness or breakouts for you. Regarding your anti-aging concerns, yes, these are absolutely what we would recommend for you.

                        To support your regimen, you may like using Beautiful Skin Foaming Cleanser and Beautiful Skin Purifying Mask. Both of these are for Normal/Oily Skin and contain our unique multi-vitamin and mineral blend as well as zinc to help balance out oily skin.

                        Beautiful Skin Foaming Cleanser (Item #2251272) is a gentle, soap-free formula that effectively removes makeup and impurities and tightens pores. This would be your everyday cleanser, morning and evening.

                        Beautiful Skin Purifying Mask (Item #2269220) is a thermal mask that contains Zeolite Clay that heats up on contact with water to open pores and draw out impurities. It also uses man-made pumice particles to further sweep away dirt and everyday impurities. You'll want to use this once or twice a week after cleansing and before the rest of your regimen.

                        Thank you for reaching out, we hope these are helpful recommendations for you. And enjoy 40- it's the new 30!
