No7 Youthful Discovery Collection Gift Set Review

by - Thursday, January 10, 2019


Hi, dolls!

In this post, I wanted to talk about skin care and tell you about the products that I am currently using. If you haven't already, check out my previous post on skin care by clicking HERE


All products I will be mentioning today come from No7. No7 for all those of you that do not know is a company that focuses on skin care and cosmetics, and have been introduced by Boots, UK in 1935. Boots in the UK is a beauty retailer, and if I'm not wrong, you could compare it to the Ulta in the US. I am sure that you can get No7 products not only in the UK, but in other countries as well, such as the United States. 



Each year, around Xmas time, Boots comes out with a gift set that contains of 6 mini products from No7. The gift set costs £20 ($25) and includes all the items pictured above. I heard about this from a friend who got the set last year and loved it but once I wanted to buy it - it was already out of stock. This might be because all Boots gift sets/Xmas products go on massive half price sale just after XMAS, and everything gets sold out immediately. This year, however, I was lucky to get not only one, but two of these gift sets on sale for half price, so I paid £20 not for one BUT for two gift sets. I was so excited that I can finally try it out and see if it's as good as pointed out by my friend, who fell in love with the creams especially. 


This set consists of: 
(information in blue is taken from the packaging description of each product)

1. No7 Radiant Results Revitalising Micellar Cleansing Water (30ml) 
For radiant & healthier looking skin in one week. Micellar particles capture make-up, impurities and pollutants, drawing them away from the skin for effortless cleaning in an instant. Removes even waterproof and long lasting make-up. Works in one easy step to cleanse face, lips and eyes.

2. No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Day Cream SPF 15 (25ml) 
Smooth the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles and help delay new ones with No7's advanced protecting & renewing daytime formula. 

3. No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Night Cream (25ml) 
Smooth the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles and help delay new ones with No7's advanced protecting & renewing night time formula. 

4. No7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil (15ml) 
The light-weight and non-greasy oil has been formulated with an active blend that mimics skin's natural oil's so that it quickly gets to work to help restore lost moisture and hydration. Instantly, skin looks more radiant and feels incredibly soft and supple. In 4 weeks, fine lines and wrinkles appear visibly reduced and skin looks healthy and nourished. 

5. No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Serum (5ml) 
No7's groundbreaking Serum is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, with results that get even better with continued use. With our patented antioxidant complex, it helps protect skin from future signs of ageing, keeping it looking younger for longer.

6. No7 Total Renewal Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator (25ml)
Discover instantly fresher, clearer, younger looking skin, with this micro-dermabrasion exfoliator. A tried and tested dermatological technique, it's been developed by our skincare experts for you to use at home.


Personally, I have definitely lacked a good skin routine because with work and school work, I definitely had zero time for any extra self-care and was always busy or tired to spend any extra time taking care of my skin, after a whole day of wearing makeup. However, I recently realised how important skin care is, especially in our young ages because it will affect us later on when we get older. Before trying out any of the items from this gift set, I struggled with dry patches on my skin (if that is the correct way of describing them) and no amount of cream would help me get rid of it. It was starting to annoy me to the point that I tried many facial masks, and I would still have dry patch or two on my cheeks or anywhere around my face. 

Since, I started using the day cream and night cream daily, I noticed that those dry patches disappeared and my skin looks more radiant. I honestly never seen my skin in such a good condition that it is in now, and even though I struggle with pores (which I talk about in my previous skin-post) by looking more glowy and radiant, I feel so much better about my skin overall.

It's been around 2 weeks now that I have been using these products everyday (except the Exfoliator) and I have to say that it has worked magic and so perfectly on my skin. I honestly am in such shock that these work so well, because after trying out the Revolution  serums/facial oils and being disappointed with the results and the breaking out of my skin that I got from it, I finally found a match that works for me. 

The exfoliator comes with a special instruction on how to use it well and in the correct way, because it is recommended to use it twice a week, but never on two days in a row as our skin needs time to produce new cells in between. Anything can affect how our skin feels, but they definitely recommend that if our skin begins to feel dry to use it once a week or for shorter times. It also states that 92% of people who have tested it claimed it made their skin feel softer and more radiant with a healthy glow and I can 10000% honestly say that I count in with those people. This is the time I regret not thinking about taking a picture of how my skin looked before and how it looks now for comparison.

I highly recommend this for all of you, but I also want you to keep in mind that everyone has different skin type and not all the products will work the same for all of us. That is why I am so thankful for this mini-gift set because it gave me an opportunity to test these and not spend a lot of money on it, because if I was to buy the full-size product and hate it, then my money would simply be wasted. Once I finish all my minis, I am definitely going to be buying the full-size versions - as long as my skin stays in a good condition as it is now. I will definitely update you guys with the results maybe in a month and see if it continues to work the same. For those of you that live in the UK and are no longer able to buy the gift set - it is coming back in November 2019! And I know it's a long wait, but full-size products of those are always available in any No7 counters all around the country, but also in the US! 

Also, if this isn't something that you think would work for you, there are other many products that No7 has for the skin, it is really worth going over to their selling points and checking out what would be good for us individually. 

Have you ever tried anything from the No7? Also, I would love to hear what skin products you guys are using and loving at the moment. Let me know in the comments! 

Love, Olivia xo

  14. I have been struggling to find a good skincare company to stick with. It's embarrassing to say but i have just recently started to care for my skin (washing, night cream,masks) at the moment I'm using Aveeno daily scrub, Aveeno ageless night cream, and l'oreal charcoal mask. I have noticed that my skin is better. I'm 32 so I just noticed my skin is starting to mature.

    I've seen this brand before and was very curious hopefully i can try it out
