Was thrilled with the results over a few months so decided to try the restore & renew serum.
No 7 Restore and Renew Night Cream is a rich night cream that includes emollients, silicones, and retinyl palmitate. While Matrixyl 3000 is an excellent ingredient, the rest of this formula is rather simple. It mostly consists of humectants, aluminum starch octenylsuccinate, and polyacrylate crosspolymer-6. The Lift & Luminate Serum slips easily onto the skin and creates a smooth almost primer like finish. It does contain dimethicone which gives it the slip and helps soften lines and smooth the skin. If you are against silicone in products then this might not be for you but it can be good for wound healing and the visual effect on the skin is quite appealing. and, it might be worth noting that your Lift and Luminate will last for up to 24 months once opened, so don’t throw it away just yet if you think you could get some use out of it.Although a daily moisturizer may be used at night as well, if you want to take your skincare routine up a notch, you can use a product specifically formulated for nighttime use.

I have used other retinol serums from other companies and they always break my skin out or cause a rash, but this retinol treatment by No. 7 is the best! I have been using it for 3 months and have seen a great difference in my skin. My wrinkles are reduced and the dark spots from sun damage have improved. I highly recommend it!!” As for what this translates to on the face, we found it left our skin feeling incredibly soft and hydrated after just one use, and on each subsequent night.
