Results and review

This is a high luxury cream. Although £34.95 is not cheap for some with the all anti ageing actives it contains it's actually very reasonably priced. This white coloured cream is slightly thick but it is easily absorbed. It has a strong scent which is a mix of essential oils with high notes of Lavender, Palmarosa and Rose Geranium. With Lavender being the strongest scent it is a pleasure to use. The cream is rich in emollients such as Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed oil, Olive oil and Jojoba. This makes the cream very hydrating and my skin feels very relaxed and firm after use.

It contains a complex of Beech Bud extract, Rosehip Seed Oil, Cucumber seed extract and Mulberry Bark Extract which help to lighten age spots. I don't suffer from any pigmentation as I do not expose my skin to the sun and when I do I wear sunscreen therefore, I cannot comment on whether this moisturiser lightens age spots however, it does contain quite an array of beneficial anti ageing ingredients which help to lighten age spots. I am very impressed with the ingredients of this cream.

Age Defy+ is Green People's anti ageing premium line which contains advanced anti ageing technology, this is what attracted me to this cream. The cream is very rich in anti oxidants such as Avocado oil, Pomegranate Seed oil, Cranberry Seed Oil and one of my favourites Organic Green Tea Leaf Extract. These ingredients help to combat free radical damage which ages skin. By using this cream you are helping to protect your skin from pollution and free radicals whilst also nourishing your skin and keeping it hydrated.

Since using this cream my skin is more radiant and looks great when I get up in the morning. My skin tone seems somewhat even toned and softer. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and not greasy at all. It is very easy to apply and spreads on the face with great ease. The cream does not roll off and it is great to use with a serum.

The product is housed in an airless jar which protects the ingredients and the smell of the product. This means the active ingredients remain active and continue to deliver great results. Due to the airless dispenser it is very easy to dispense and control how much product you want to use.

Due to the constancy of this cream you only need to apply a small amount however, I would prefer this product to be 50ml. A little really does go a long way and less is certainly more with this cream especially with the gorgeous powerful scent.

This is 87.5% organic and I love the classy packaging. I've given this beautiful cream 4/5 leafs due to the small size. Although brightening the skin is not a concern for me I still like to use anti ageing creams and this almost ticks every box for me. Very impressed!

So for today only (6th December 2013) as part of Green People's 12 Days of Christmas when you purchase the Age Defy+ 24 Hour Brightening you get the AgeDefy+ Soft Buff Skin Exfoliator 30ml (worth £19.95) for free!
