Miracle anti-ageing cream from Boots another sell out

Tuesday, 17 April 2012

Boots No7 Lift and Luminate serumA few years ago, a documentary shown in Britain declared that Boots No 7 Protect and Perfect Intense Beauty Serum actually worked – and there was a mad run for it in the shops. Now Boots is set to release a new anti-ageing cream which is bound to be a sell-out success too.

Priced at £24.95 (about R315), the Lift & Luminate Day & Night Serum, which claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and firm up skin, has been unveiled by Boots.

It joins a number of other wrinkle-busting lotions from the high street retailer which have disappeared from shelves within days of launch.

Two years ago the Protect & Perfect lotion sold out 24 hours after going on sale as scientists from BBC’s Horizons programme deemed it a ‘miracle product’.

And now the British chemist is hoping its latest offering will be just as successful.

Dr Tamara Griffiths, consultant dermatologist at Manchester University applauded the rise of affordable skincare solutions.

She said: ‘Lines, wrinkles and sagging skin are obvious concerns, but the ageing effects of pigmentation such as age spots and uneven skin tone can also play a significant role. There are treatments available however they can be costly and cause side effects and I certainly will welcome a safe, at home treatment.’

The new serum has been tested on more than 1 200 women and is said to smooth out wrinkles, even skin tone and firm up the face to give it a youthful appearance.

During one trial involving more than 180 women, 80 percent reported their skin felt radiant after just one use while 73 percent noticed skin looked younger after just four weeks.

Results of the tests will be revealed to experts at the forthcoming British Society of Investigate Dermatology Conference.

In a recent interview Gwyneth Paltrow also revealed that she was a fan of the Boots No 7 range.

She said: ‘One of the many exciting things about living in England for a good part of the year is the perpetual discovery. Boots is almost as ubiquitous as the pub here in England. Everyone raves about Boots’ own line No 7 and their range of high quality cosmetics, moisturisers and cleansers.’

Lift & Luminate goes on sale on 18 April in the UK. Hopefully it will land here on our shores shortly thereafter!
