Written in partnership with Freshly Cosmetics.
Spanish vegan beauty brand Freshly Cosmetics just opened its first-ever store outside the country at 44 Carnaby Street in London. We were first in line to try the 99 per cent natural, cruelty-free, sustainable collection, which currently has a Black Friday month offer of 40% off everything (50% on orders over £59).
It's the Omega Rich Well-Ageing Cream , (normally £39, now £23.40) that has really caught our attention. This luxurious night cream embodies Freshly Cosmetics' concept of 'well-ageing' rather than anti-ageing. We can't stop time but we can improve the biological age of our skin with targeted actives. We can also change the way we view the ageing process - after all, wrinkles are the places where smiles have been!
This 99 per cent natural pot of indulgence is a great focus for an evening self-care beauty routine. Eight natural clinical active ingredients work hard to protect the components that make our skin look plump and healthy - collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and fibroblasts - ensuring that the skin does not lose its energy and retains its youthful bounce. Recommended for +30 skins, it repairs cell damage and improves the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, dullness and dehydration. In clinical trials, 44% of users report a decrease in wrinkles and expression lines in just eight weeks.
Skin can become dehydrated as we get older and hyaluronic acid is a key player in restoring plumpness. The Omega Rich Well-Ageing Cream utilises the ingredient in an all-new way. It contains Freshly Cosmetics' Smart Hyaluronic Acid Capsules, which drive the ingredient deep into the layers of the skin where it's needed in order to make a visible difference, keeping skin moist all day. The combination of this and Plant Glycogen works to increase the skin elasticity by 66%, hydration by 130% and strengthen the skin barrier by 23% after 28 days.
Dry skin is a thing of the past too when you're using this cream. The salicornia complex drenches even the most Sahara-like of complexions, reducing water loss to keep skin supple long after the cream has sunk in. You can rest assured that your skin barrier is protected too; the moisturiser is infused with microflora to strengthen your skin barrier and to keep skin protected and healthy.
