          I LOVE this product! I use this religiously! After I use the Boots moisturizing face wash, pat dry, and I apply two pumps over my whole face including my brow and lid area; then apply my Boots day face cream or face night cream. My face is fresh and revitalized. Feels clean! I receive compliments from my friends how young and fresh my complexion appears.

            I use this in combination with the eye cream and the night lotion. Works pretty well for the price. I noticed results around my eyes pretty fast. Not so much on my forehead though. I think with the eye cream with this product it what helps.

              I have been using this every day and night for 2 months. I am 47 and was looking for something to fight beginning wrinkles. I have used the No 7 day and night cream and advanced eye cream as well. The thing that is most noticeable in the first week or so is how smooth my skin is. My skin was uneven to the touch, but no longer is. This goes on smoothly and is easy to get even. It is not greasy or oily, and provides a nice, light coat for the other creams. Very happy with the product and the product line

                        Thank you for reaching out. When using Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum you will want to avoid the delicate eyelid area right above and below the lash line, but you can take it up and onto your orbital bone- the bone that goes around your eye area. For the best results, use morning and evening after cleansing and then moisturize with your favorite day or night cream and eye cream.

                    • Q:

                      I've just started using your advanced, intense serum and have noticed that it is drying out my skin. I do use your lift and luminate night cream which I absolutely love! It makes my skin smooth and does seem to give it a youthful glow but now I am worried that the advance serum will change all that if I use them both. My skin dries out very easily from products like Olay. Would you recommend I just use the day and night lift and illuminate creams instead of the serum? I am 48 years old and do you have wrinkles that concern me. However, I would like to have a youthful glow and not dried out skin. What do you recommend? I have only used the serum for three or four days but I can tell the difference already as far as the dryness is concerned.

                      • Brand Expert

                        A:

                        Thank you so much for reaching out with your concern. Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum contains Hyaluronic acid which helps attract moisture into the skin, so it shouldn't make your skin dry. However, everyone's skin is different and there's a chance this product is making your skin feel dry.

                        We're sorry, but we couldn't quite tell from the information you provided if you're using your day and night creams over the serum both morning and evening, so please forgive the following information if it's redundant for you. All our anti-aging serums are designed to be used morning and evening after cleansing and underneath your moisturizer. If you are using the serum alone either morning or evening, or both, that could be why you feel it's drying out your skin. If you are using your moisturizer both morning and evening over the serum, then we recommend continuing to use the serum for the recommended 4 weeks, as your skin could be adjusting to the new product. If your skin is too uncomfortable for that, then please discontinue use of Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum.

                        You're definitely on the right track in looking at a serum to better address your anti-aging concerns. Serums are more concentrated than creams and penetrate deeper into the skin, so they provide much more powerful anti-aging results. Since you love Lift & Luminate Night Cream, and we're so happy you do, you may want to try Lift & Luminate Day & Night Serum. The application is the same in that you'll use each serum (the box contains 2 tubes: one is for day, one is for night) after cleansing and follow with your moisturizer. This serum duo targets wrinkles, loss of firmness and discoloration from the sun, and will certainly address your concerns. We know this is a lot of information, but sincerely hope it's helpful for you.

                        A:

                        Great question! The ingredients in No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum are different from the ingredients in Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Moisturising Body Serum. Both products contain our powerful anti-aging and antioxidant complexes, but that's where the similarities end. The body serum has intensely moisturizing ingredients for your body and is basically formulated to meet your anti-aging plus hydration needs in one. The serum for your face (and neck and décolleté if you like) uses ingredients that are better absorbed by the delicate skin on the face. It is "single-purpose" in the sense that it is targeting your anti-aging needs deeper in the skin and still needs a separate moisturizer in order to keep your skin soft, hydrated and comfortable. We hope this information is helpful for you!

                        A:

                        Absolutely, Rosehip oil can be used underneath No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum. Depending on your skin you may find you only need a little of the oil because this serum does work to retain hydration in the skin. Also, some customers add a few drops of their facial oil to their serum and apply it to their skin in one step. Thank you for reaching out with your inquiry, we hope this helps!

                        A:

                        Thank you for reaching out with your inquiry, and good question! Changing the skincare range you're using really depends on your skin concerns and needs. The Protect & Perfect range addresses the first fine lines you see, while the Protect & Perfect Intense range addresses deeper lines & wrinkles. If you're looking to really boost your anti-aging routine we recommend incorporating Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum. This clinically proven serum is a targeted anti-aging treatment that penetrates deeper into the skin to visibly reduce deep lines & wrinkles in just 4 weeks. It delivers more powerful results than you'll see by using only day and night creams. We hope this answers your question!

                        The main purpose of No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum is to improve deeper lines & wrinkles by firming the skin. Some customers have seen an improvement in discoloration when using it, but we don't claim that's what it will definitely do for you. You may want to consider Lift & Luminate Concentrated Dark Spot Serum if pigmentation issues are your concern. This spot treatment (not for the entire face) uses our highest levels of lightening technology and is clinically proven to fade age spots, but some customers with pigmentation concerns from acne have found this beneficial for them. We also like to ensure that customers are using the proper exfoliator for their skin. No7's Anti-Ageing Glycolic Peel Kit works to gently slough off dead skin cells, encouraging the newer, healthier skin cells beneath to surface. This is also extremely important when trying to fade acne scars. We hope this is helpful information for you!

                        While No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum has no fragrance (parfum) added, there is a faint, mild scent from the ingredients. Many customers find it clean and fresh and that it dissipates quickly once applied to the skin. But no, this product is not scent free. Protect & Perfect Intense Eye Cream also has no fragrance added. The other products in the Protect & Perfect Intense family, however, do have fragrance added: Day Cream, Night Cream, Moisturising Body Serum and Overnight Hand Treatment.

                      Am I hearing you say apply a pea size amount for your entire face? I've been using so much more. I'm not using it for very long so it's hard to tell how effective it's been but I do like how it makes my skin feel.

                        We are so glad you like how you skin feels after using No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum. You are correct, we recommend only using a pea sized amount for your entire face. You may want to leave your skin a bit damp after cleansing and use a little more if you are also treating your neck. So you experience the best results possible, please ensure to follow with moisturizer morning and evening.
