09.28.18AD DISCLOSURE

Although Boots No7 may be relatively new to American consumers, the skincare brand is as much of a British icon as tea, the Queen and wellies. The Boots brand can trace its roots back to 1849.  Since then, Boots has become the UK’s largest drugstore and has its own namesake skincare line, Boots No7. Here’s a closer look at Boots No7, what is sells and is it worth a try?

What are the Best Skin Care Products of 2020?

What is Boots?

Boots was launched in 1849 by John Boot, who opened an herbal medicine shop in Nottingham, England. His son Jesse Boot is credited with turning Boots into a large retailer as he embraced traditional medicine at affordable prices. The company grew and expanded over the years, and milestones included the development of ibuprofen in 1969. In 2014 Walgreens acquired a majority stake in Boots, forming the Walgreens Boots Alliance.

What Is Boots No7 Skincare?

The Boots No7 skincare line debuted in 1935 and positioned itself as a prestigious but affordable skincare line. It launched with 11 products and the tagline “the modern way to loveliness”. In 1952 the line rebranded with the slogan “Better and lovelier than before” and the company began to include more cosmetics and skincare.  Boots No7 was seen to be trusted and dependable but not particularly exciting. That all started to change in 2003 with the debut of its Protect and Perfect line of anti-aging products.

What Is Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Serum?

The Protect and Perfect anti-aging line was well received but the game changing moment happened in 2007, when No7 Boots launched its Protect and Perfect Serum, which was formulated to focus on the signs aging, such as fine lines and dark spots. That same year, a BBC Horizon documentary noted that participants who used the serum saw improvement on the appearance of their wrinkles. Sales increased by almost 2,000 percent and it was estimated that 13 bottles were sold every minute.

What is the Boots No7 Philosophy?

According to the company, No7 takes a down to earth approach to beauty and skincare. As the company explains, “No7 was the first brand to democratize beauty in the UK, bringing premium, affordable products to women. That principle still holds strong..” The brand states that “beauty for women is about more than looking pretty, women use cosmetics to be ready for something: to show up, speak up, and make an impact in their world in their own way. We refer to this as No7 READY.” Boots No7 also strives to be “real and relatable, never featuring supermodels in its advertising and not retouching the remarkable people that do feature.”

What Does Boots No7 Sell?

The Boots No7 collection includes skincare, makeup, brushes as well as a line for men. The lines include Protect and Perfect; Lift and Luminate; Laboratories as well as Restore and Renew, and each collection has its own distinct color packaging.

Arguably the best known Boots No7 products are in the Protect and Perfect line, which includes its blockbuster serum, foundation, sheet masks and creams for the eyes, face, hands and body. The Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Cream is available as a day or night cream, and there is also a sun protection line.

The Early Defence collection is designed for ages 20 to 35. The products are meant to help make the skin look radiant while also minimizing the appearance of pores. The regimen includes a serum, hypo-allergenic day cream with SPF 30, and a nourishing night cream.

Lift and Luminate is meant for ages 45 to 60, and the products are designed to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The collection includes a Lift and Luminate Dark Spot Corrector, Lift and Luminate Triple Action serum, sheets masks as well as day and night creams.

The Restore and Renew line is aimed at customers aged 60 and up. The pink-packaged products include an eye cream, face and neck serum, sheet masks and day and night creams.

What About No7 Firming Booster Serum and the No7 Line Correcting Booster Serum?

In addition to the Protect and Perfect serum, some of the most buzz worthy No7 products include the No7 Firming Booster Serum and the No7 Line Correcting Booster Serum, from the Laboratories line. Together both serums generated a waiting list of 37,000 people; put another way, according to Boots, one product was sold every seven seconds.

The all-white No7 Laboratories Firming Booster Serum is designed for the face and neck, and should be applied before any other serum and moisturizer. According to Boots, it is meant to help the skin look temporarily firmer. The No7 Line Correcting Booster Serum  should be applied directly on specific lines and wrinkles, rather than spread all over the face.

Where is Boots No7 Sold?

In the UK, Boots No7 products are available at Boots stores and on its website. In the US, they can be found online at the Boots No7 website, Walgreens, CVS, Ulta and Target.

How Much Do Boots No7 Products Cost?

Boots No7 skincare products are priced in line with some of the more expensive drugstore brands, while the makeup has a lower price point. The Protect and Perfect Advanced All in One Foundation retails for $15.99 while a tube of Moisture Drench Lipstick is $12.99. City Light Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 is $14.99 while some of the priciest items are the No7 Laboratories Line Correcting Booster Serum ($41.99), the Lift and Luminate Triple Action Serum ($33.99) and the Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Serum starts at $29.99. Products are also sold in skincare kits, such as the four piece Restore and Renew collection for $93.99.

What Are the Ingredients in Boots No7?

Boots No7 products include commonly used skincare ingredients. The newest version of Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Serum contains the moisture magnet hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, silicone and ginseng, as well as a vitamin A derivative, retinyl palmitate. Retinyl palmitate tends to be more gentle than other retinoids, and has exfoliating properties.  Boots says its key ingredient is Matrixyl 3000 Plus, an “anti-aging peptide.” The Early Defence Day Cream is formulated with hydrating shea butter, glycerin and retinyl palmitate, and the Lift and Luminate Triple Action Serum is packed with Matrixyl 3000, hyaluronic acid, hibiscus and Vitamin C. The Dark Spot Corrector Booster Serum is powered by No7’s “lightening complex” that includes vitamin C, emblica (gooseberry extract) and sophora, a root extract that is thought to help lighten the appearance of skin.

Is Boots No7 Cruelty Free?

Yes. According to the company, “We do not conduct animal testing on our products, or on ingredients used in our products, nor do we commission animal testing on our products or on ingredients used in our products.”

Does Boots No7 Work?

Beauty is never a one size fits all approach. Even cult favorite brands don’t work for 100% of people who try them, which is why it’s always helpful to look at customer reviews and editorial write ups as a starting point.   

Boots No7 has been around for decades and has collected plenty of awards as well as editorial write ups. In 2019 Good Housekeeping named both the Restore and Renew Face and Neck Multi Action Serum, and the Line Correcting Booster Serum “Beauty Award Winners.” 

No 7 Serum Review 2019

No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Beauty Serum has won an Allure Readers’ Choice Awards five years in a row. In 2009 the University of Manchester studied the effects of the Protect and Perfect Serum on a group of volunteers. The study, which was published in the British Journal of Dermatology, concluded that the participants who used the serum showed improvement in the appearance of their wrinkles.

What do real people think? No7 products have more than 15,000 reviews on Influenster. The No7 Airbrush Away Primer garners a 4.4 out of 5 star rating from nearly 300 reviews . User Catherine M. wrote, “YES YES YES YES. My favorite mattifying primer—worth the price!!” Others called it “amazing” and “phenomenal.” Those who gave it low ratings said that it made them break out, or they found it too oily.

No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Serum gets a 4.3 out of 5 star rating on Influenster, based on more than 800 reviews. Lisa B. wrote,Glides on ever lightly and smooth. I saw results in the first week. Fine lines were not as deep” and Lisa R. had similar feedback. “I LOVE THIS STUFF! My Holy grail, ride or die. After 5 weeks I noticed my lines were diminishing. The elevens on my forehead were practically gone.”

On Target.com, the No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Serum has over 1,800 reviews, with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating. A user called Debi gave it five stars, noting “Excellent products. Am almost 70 years old and it works as well now as it did when I started using it many years ago. Price is really good especially given the results.” Customers who didn’t like were put off by the scent, while some noted that it made them break out.

What Are Some Alternatives to Boots No7?

Although Boots No7 is a popular option, it may not work for everyone. There are a few other brands to consider.

Formulyst’s believes in long-term and effective skincare and the brand’s philosophy is that age is just a number. That number isn’t necessarily the one on your driver’s license, but a numerical sequence that makes up a skincare formula suited for your skin type and needs. Each skincare concern is assigned a number, such as 1 for dryness, 3 for fine lines. Your personal combination will be just as unique as you (and your skin) are.  Formulyst makes it easy – all you have to do

is find your formula, and  follow the numbers.

Formulyst’s Anti-Aging Cream does a little bit of everything. It gently exfoliates the skin to reveal  a fresher, smoother looking complexion, while nourishing the skin. It is gentle enough to be used every night, and also helps to visibly brighten the appearance of dark spots and soften the look of fine lines.

Formulyst’s Anti-Aging Eye Cream delivers five anti-aging actions in one product. The cream helps reduce the look of dark circles, puffiness and stubborn crow’s feet. The cream is enriched with hyaluronic acid, which draws in moisture and helps smooth the look of fine lines while leaving skin looking – and feeling- soft and supple.

Fans of skincare kits, which take all the guesswork out of creating your own regimen, should try Advanced Dermatology. This no nonsense brand offers a pared down approach to skincare. The packaging is simple and streamlined, and the products bring skincare back to the basics. The kit contains just six essential items including a daily cleanser; serum; anti-wrinkle firming treatment; night cream; day cream and an eye cream. In other words, everything you need to achieve your best possible looking skin.

THE BEST SKIN CARE LINES 2020

Formulyst

The philosophy of Formulyst is long-term and effective skincare, rather than covering up any imperfections. The comprehensive line of products tackles everything from wrinkles to dark spots and dry skin. While some brands rely on unnecessary fillers and scents, Formulyst focuses on ingredients that help create results, such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Many of the Formulyst’s products harness the power of plant and citrus extracts as well as gold-standard workhorses such as retinol. Read More

Boots Line-Correcting Booster Serum

Boots, a drugstore chain based in the UK, has been delivering inexpensive yet effective skincare for years. Known more commonly as No. 7 by those located in the U.S. and around the world, this brand offers unique, well researched formulations with an emphasis on slowing and reversing the aging process....

No. 7 Restore & Renew Face & Neck Multi Action Serum Review

The No. 7 Restore & Renew Face & Neck Multi Action Serum brings some of the most sought after skincare ingredients and incorporates them into an all-in-one anti-aging serum for your neck and decollete. According to the brand, this Multi Action Serum delivers 5 different anti-aging centered results. This includes increased firmness, reduced wrinkles, evened skin tone, less crepey looking skin and eliminated dry patches. The formula behind this product includes several peptides, hyaluronic acid and retinol palmitate which deliver the majority of these results and also help to hydrate and plump the skin. According to the brand, skin will feel smoother and softer in one use.

Boots Early Defence Serum

One of the most well known brands in the UK is Boots and their beauty brand, No.7. But what does this drugstore staple have to offer? Today, we’re diving into this brand and talking about some of the most popular products to see exactly what’s inside this cosmetics company.

No7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream Review

The No7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream was designed to serve as a deeply nourishing moisturizer for those with stubbornly dry or dehydrated skin. Unfortunately, this product is rumored to be discontinued and is fairly difficult to track down, both in store and online, but we can give you a bit more information on the formula and point you in the direction of a few alternatives from No7 that offer some of the same benefits. The Beauty Skin Night cream was formulated specifically for those with dry or dehydrated skin types, and because of this, features a rich and intensely creamy texture to coat the skin in comforting hydrating and long lasting relief. Like other products in the range, the Beautiful Skin Night Cream contains a unique multivitamin and mineral blend that is exclusive to No7, as well as rosehip oil to hydrate and support essential skin processes. If you’re looking for something similar, or would simply like to try out the brand, we recommend checking out the Early Defence Night Cream for a similar texture and finish, with the added benefit of some early anti-aging ingredients.

INGREDIENTS

No7 Airbrush Away Primer Review

The No7 Airbrush Away Primer was created to serve as the perfect base product to help improve makeup application from multiple angles. Like the name would suggest, this product was designed to deliver that airbrushed, radiant finish. But this product doesn’t just blur the appearance of pores and fine lines in order to even out the skin, but also boosts radiance to create a youthful looking glow to the skin. Using a multi-faceted primer like this one helps to extend the wear time of your makeup or foundation and helps to ensure that any product doesn’t sink into any fine lines or clump together on dry patches. Instead, you can easily apply this primer after moisturizer and sunscreen to smoothe over the surface for a perfect canvas.

Boots Your Good Skin

Boots Your Good Skin is a brand new skincare line launched by the UK based beauty company that has been a recognized as a skincare pioneer for decades. If you’ve been hearing a lot buzz surrounding the innovative new Boots Your Good Skin skin care line it’s for good reason.

No7 Laboratories LINE CORRECTING Booster Serum Review

No7 Laboratories LINE CORRECTING Booster Serum is an anti-aging serum designed to be applied directly to lines and wrinkles to deliver fast, visible results. It contains seven times more Matrixyl 3000 than the brand’s other clinically proven serums. Matrixyl 3000 is a combination of the matrikines palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7. Matrikines are messenger peptides that provide anti-aging benefits by signaling to cells to produce more collagen. They also activate certain genes involved in the process of extracellular matrix (ECM) renewal and cell proliferation. The ECM is a complex structural scaffold that supports and surrounds the cells in the skin, and also contains the important proteins collagen and elastin. Destruction and loss of the ECM is a major cause of skin aging. By stimulating the renewal of the ECM, Matrixyl 3000 can help reduce the appearance of fines lines and wrinkles, as well as improve skin texture.

No7 Laboratories LINE CORRECTING Booster Serum is clinically proven to visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 6 targeted areas: forehead, crow’s feet, lip, between brows, under eyes, and nasolabial folds. The No7 Laboratories LINE CORRECTING Booster Serum can also be used as a booster by mixing into your usual moisturizer, eye cream, or foundation.

    I was trying no 7 surm it looked like it was working but about 1/half was left seems like you don’t get all you pay for like a bag of chips half would like to get a coupon for no 7 want to buy more no 7 stuff

  • Wendy Hodgden 02.09.20 Reply

    I have used the serum since the day it came out in 2007. I was in London on a vacation and heard about it. I went to the drug store and waited in a line for an hour to get it. I bought several tubes to take home for friends. I have been using it ever since and at 71 people that meet me say I look in my 50’s. I highly recommend it. You can get it in the states at Target.

  • Donna L Eblen-Hicks 02.01.20 Reply

    I’ve used NO7 for at least five years. I do not see lines disappear as product states I will. I do know the importance of skin care and so I continue. I have sensitive skin and NO7 doesn’t irritate my skin or eyes. I have noticed sun spots have faded in color from that particular product. I use all the serums, creams, cleansers and some make-up products. I will continue to do so.

  • Sherry Greenberg 01.10.20 Reply

    So happy that I am not the only one to see NO changes after using a whole bottle of the serum. I was soooooo disappointed. I didn’t expect to rollback 20 years, but would have liked to see some of the eye bags or wrinkles look less visible.

  • Terry Gominiak 11.25.19 Reply

    Considering the amount of money I have spent on your products (day-night-and$50 booster serum) I’m very disappointed. Perhaps this particular viscosity doesn’t work with my skin as after using at any moment should I choose to touch/rub/itch my skin I will end up with a thick rolled up residue not only in my face but my hand. Incredibly embarrassing if someone else does so!!! Considering your products cost (I had heard good things)… This was a waste of my money and time. Huge disappointment!!!!

    I love all the products of No7 and I have been using them for as long as I have seen it in the stores in Canada. But I will say the one product that disappointed me a bit was the line corrector serum I had used three bottles with no visible results? I am now trying the dark spot serum as I do have some sun damage spots I will keep you all posted. I have had regular use of all the creams for many years and I am 64 years old and have had so so many compliments on my smooth skin I love love the products and they do work.

  • Kristine 08.08.19 Reply

    So, this article is incorrect on several things; Amazon is not an authorized retailer of NO7, and anything found on Amazon is stolen/unauthorized. The creams are actually 22.99-26.99$, the serums are in the same price range. No7 also includes ingredients to sooth and combat irritation/inflammation. No7, because it is a UK line, is also held to much higher standards than products manufactured in China (Olay), or the U.S. I highly recommend No7. As a licensed Esthetician with many many clients that use it, I’m seeing nothing but beautiful skin.

    Why does No 7 products contain Propylene Glycol. I am allergic to this product which is found in embalming fluid. Surely there is a better ingredient than Propylene Glycol. Please look at this ingredient to see if there is better alternative. Thank you

    I’ve been using No. 7 for 6 months and have seen a huge difference in my skin. When I’m asked how old I am people are surprised to find out I’m almost 63 yrs old.

    I have always used Protect & Perfect Serum for years with great results. Since turning 66 I thought I’d try the Restore & Renew Serum, for the older lady, and have broken out all along my jawline with pimples which have large yellow heads, I’m devastated. Should I stop using it and go back to the former product?

  • Barbara Lee 05.01.19 Reply

    I fell victim to TV ads and waited patiently for one of my local Walgreens to actually have the product on the shelf when I shopped for the 3rd time. Have used the product for the past 2 weeks and 1 day with no visible results except for the appearance of DEEPER upper lip lines. Would not recommend this product and will attempt to get my money back from Walgreens. I’ve used it alone and/or mixed with my normal skin care line from France. Have stopped using Serum No. 7. As a 75 year old who routinely has a facial no longer than every 3 weeks, I am disappointed that I’m now starting to look my age and I have to say it’s because of the product. Not a fan to say the very least. My skin is firm from years of wonderful facials and the RIGHT for my skin. I stay out of the sun as I am fair skinned and actually allergic to the big orange ball of light. Have used my Yon KA for years and believe in SPF which No. 7 doesn’t admit to. OK enough, stopping the use and going to attempt return. Wish me luck on that one.

  • Marilyn 04.08.19 Reply

    Not worth the money and terrible for my skin. I usually don’t purchase higher priced makeups etc. but bought two full regimens of No7. One I mailed to my older sister to try and the other I tried now for four days. My face burns and every wrinkle is emphasized so much more and wrinkles I didn’t know I had now appeared. Very disappointed and had to phone my sister and tell her don’t open the box or use I mailed her. I wish I never would have even considered this product but thought would be good for maturing skin use. I do believe the cheaper the better the product as not so many chemicals and other products in the serums and makeups. The more the worse chance of sensitivity and a harsh aging look like this product gave to me. Will use my Dove for sensitive skin and water splashing to try and regain some moisture in my skin so don’t look so wrinkled and taught with burning sensation and peeling. Hope no permanent damage.

  • Dianne White 04.02.19 Reply

    I am 67 years old. I have tried many products. Have been using No7 serum, day time and night time cream for over a year now. I have seen absolutely no difference in my skin. Wrinkles still there and noticeable. I truly believe it is all in the genes. Pharmacy products are just the same so why spend all that money on something that may work. Also the models are are no older than 35.

  • Briggette Ema 03.23.19 Reply

    I started using no 7 a week ago. I can feel and see the difference. I too lost my parents and started aging rapidly. Last year I lost my brother. Loss makes you age. I am sorry for your loss and hope these products work for you to see less signs of age.

    I purchased the Serum yesterday and so far so good. Will continue hoping to see results. My biggest concern with other products in this skin care line is the use of fragrance. Will be returning the Gel Cleanser because of fragrance. I tested the daily face cream in the store unable to use because of fragrance. Have you thought about a line for +60 that is unfragranced?

    I wish I had read these reviews before I bought Restore & Renew neck cream. I have been having problems with cold sores ever since I started with this product! I never for a minute thought that the cause might be my new neck cream I was using. Also I want to add the fragrance in this cream is overpowering…..why oh why with so many people reacting to fragrance do they still insist on adding so much scent?? You can be sure this cream is going in the garbage and not fast enough. I will never buy No 7 product again even with all the good results some people get.

    No 7 products are fantastic! The absolute best product is the Serum. I am 67 and it has taken away the lines above my nose and beside my eyes.

    I purchased Restore & Renew serum, night cream, and eye cream. YES, it’s like putting perfume on your face!! Products have a strong perfume-like scent!! I could only use products for 2 days. My skin turned red and felt like it was burning. My eyes watered slightly and felt uncomfortable. They claim this line is hypoallergenic, so I thought it’d be unscented. I’m now questioning this claim, and have found conflicting info. online about this claim. Now looked up reviews (too late) and see some women, like me, also had burning. Some got sores. Everything’s in the garbage.

    Have been happily using No7 lift & Luminate day cream and restore & renew night cream as I need something richer overnight. Was thrilled with the results over a few months so decided to try the restore & renew serum.
    BIG MISTAKE! After first day I got a sore dry spot on my upper lip but did not connect it to the serum. It got worse over couple of days, burning & tingling- I even thought I’d somehow got a cold sore (never had one in my life)
    But then got more sore red raised patches on my neck & chest then on my nose, around my eyes & forehed. But I still didn’t suspect the serum as I’d got on fine with other No7 product. My doctor prescribed steroid cream but this had no effect as I was still (foolishly) using the serum thinking it might help!!!!!!
    I finally started researching reviews of all my current skin care products and was appalled to discover many other women have suffered the same severe skin reaction from using the restore and renew serum. So this is my second day without any No7 products on my face and I can already see the redness is starting to subside, although the raised red welts on my next & chest will take longer to heal I suspect.
    All I can say is “shame on you, Boots! I trusted you”

  • Susan Ortiz 10.05.18 Reply

    The same thing happened to me just a few days ago. I had purchased a tube of No. 7 Lift and Luminate Triple Action Serum a few months ago, then misplaced the tube and found it again last week. I tried applying it on my face and within an hour I had red, inflamed, burning blotches all over my face. This is day three and my face still burns and I can see some skin peeling. I had to put ice packs on my face the first night just to relieve the pain. This morning I woke up and the cracking at both the corrners of my mouth had bled overnight. Healing from this is apparently a slow process. I tried calling Boots’ US office and had to leave a VM because they were closed.

    I have been using No 7 day and night cream since 2012. Restore & Renew Day cream (with SPF15) and the matching Night Cream as well as the Lift & Luminate for Day and Night. I am 71 and have good skin, except for the lines around my mouth. I love, love these products. The products make my skin glow … and the cream has tightened the skin noticeably. This review is meant to tell you that I have experienced the loss of 3 moles which over time melted away. I had one large mole next to my eye, hidden by my eyeglasses, but it was growing larger and was itchy. Over the course of a few months, it came off in a washcloth. The second one did the same. So, with one more on my shoulder, I thought I would try creaming twice a day (day and night cream) … just a little drop of cream and after a couple of months it lifted off. This was 3 times No 7 successfully removed an an ugly mole. I was thrilled as all of these were causing issue and now them are completely gone. I am still amazed that this cream was able to lift these rough brown moles and at the same time is the best cream I have ever used. I am shocked so many customers are having issues with the cream(s) as I have very sensitive skin and have not experienced any problems.

    Horrendous allergic reaction to Boots No 7 serum. I have NEVER had an allergic reaction to anything in my life, and certainly never a beauty product. I have used Boots No 7 face creams with no problems for years. I now have Weeping, scaly skin, soooo sore, swollen eyelids.
    I have had to take Piriton.
    What the heck is in this serum?

  • Linda 07.23.18 Reply

    I am a 65 year old African American woman. I have been using No 7 products about a month & satisfied so far. I have heard of no Black women experiencing breakouts, swelling & of course redness. I have no idea why so many say they are experiencing problems. But everything doesn’t work for everybody obviously. I have tried many products in the past, it’s always trial & error. So if it works fine, I benefit from it. If it doesn’t I move on. There is no way of knowing, even with reviews, if any product purchased will work for you or not. Won’t be the first, probably not the last. And some have cost quite a bit more than this one I’m sure. So suck it up ladies! I have a graveyard of lipsticks. Keep trying until you find something that works! That goes with anything: clothes, foods, cosmetics, you name it…

    I initially liked what this product did for my skin. However, after opening a new jar of moisturizer, I realized that the product was flaking on my skin! Very unsightly! Yes I exfoliate, yes my face was clean. I have stopped using it to make sure that was the issue, and yes, it was. Makes me sad because I liked the way it made my skin look, for awhile. Almost brand new jar gone to waste

    I saw this product on Dr. Oz several times and decided to try it since my skin looks dull. I’ve been using the glow activating serum for 2 weeks and now have breakouts and no glow still! I have not had breakouts in years and am very careful about what I use on my face for fear of this. This product claims hypoallergenic but clearly it’s not so it shouldn’t be listed on the label as such! I’m very disappointed and will be returning it for a full refund. I just hope and pray my skin clears back up since I’ve worked so hard to keep it clear! It gets no stars from me

    Im 63 but all my friends think I’m about 56 and I lied about my age all the time anyway but I love the number 7 products I use the face Wash I use the toner I use the day and night cream I even have two of my friends that just started using the same products and they love them too the only problem I have is with the neck cream it doesn’t do anything so I ordered some neck cream from dr. Leonard’s merle Roberts and it works great I will continue to use the number 7 products because they do work fabulously

All that money wasted! Not happy at all 🙁

    Same here I love No 7 and I have very sensitive skin ! Cannot believe the bad reviews !! I wouldn’t trade it for any of those pricey products and I’ve tried them all !! I’m 54 and my son is 26 and no one believes I’m his mother !! Everyone says I’m too young to have a son that’s 26 yrs old ! I’ve always used Dove soap only on my face and Oil of Olay, but since I’ve tried No 7 I’m totally sticking with it !!! I tried to rate it 5 star but couldn’t get it to change ,for me it is definitely 5 star plus!!!

    I’m 50 years old and I’ve always look great for my age in fact I have a 31-year-old son and when we go in public a lot of people think I’m his girlfriend which really irritates my son but make me feel great I’ve even been asked if I’ve had Botox, which I haven’t . Anyway, I’ve been using oil of Olay for over 30 years it’s always worked great for me but I thought I would give this number seven product a try. About two months ago my daughter bought me the entire kit for Christmas the night cream the day cream in the Firming serum. I put them on every day and night for two months and I have not seen a change at all in fact, I always put my make up and face cream on with a mirror that magnetizes 10 times so I can see the fine lines I’m starting to get. This was another product that was Hyped up by the media. I believe there’s a lot of women who want to believe that this product works and psychologically they’re believing it but it doesn’t.. My my neck looks worse than it did before so using number seven so I will never use again and I’m going back to oil of olay if you want to use a really good skin cream for your neck you’ve got to us strivectin it’s a little pricey but definitely worth it

    I saw many shows on Dr. Phil about this product. I decided to try one thing to see how well it worked. I purchased the Instant Illusion Wrinkle Filler for $20.00. Very disappointing to say the least. Does not do anything. Feels just like a moisturizer. I feel robbed. I won’t be purchasing anymore products.

    Oh my gosh! I am 70 years old and I’ve been using this stuff for about 3 months now. I do see a difference on my skin but the cream like you said, it cakes up and rolls off!! I thought, “well maybe it’s old” . I haven’t finished the cream yet but when I do and buy a new one, I will have to ask if it’s a fresh batch or an old batch. Sometimes when stuff is sold at stores, they don’t keep track of what they have an how long they’ve had on the shelf. But yes! it cakes up and I don’t like it either!!

    I have used the No 7 protect & intense serum for over 10 years and have had good effects on my skin…I’m 60 years of age with few wrinkles. However after purchasing the lift & laminate serum I found my skin became red sore and flakey, the skin around my lips kept peeling an tingling month after I stopped using it. It caused so much damage to my skin. I used the eye cream too and my around my eyes became dry red patches. I tried going back to the protect serum after all the sore skin healed which took months, however my skin started tingling and drying out again. Why hasn’t all the reviews on this website been made more public as the affect of the skin damage was quite significant it actually burned my skin.

    Within an hour of using this product on my face, I was itching and broke out in hives on my face and neck, and soon after my eyes and lips started swelling. Certainly not hypoallergenic, and not how I wanted to spend my Thanksgiving! Will not recommend this to anyone- going in the trash.

I like the offer Walgreens has, buy 2 get third free, and if not satisfied as with any of their cosmetics, you can return. Love the product!

I actually felt guilty about returning it to the store but now that I know it has happened to others, I know that I wasn’t the only one. This product has gotten a lot of hype on shows like Dr. Oz and I was tempted to try it again but definitely won’t.

    I do really really love No7 protect and perfect range, always get compliments on how youthful my skin looks, have used for over 10 years now and comparing to my sister the wrinkles are not as visible.
    Reading through a few comments on this page about No7 using parabens, I asked a No7 advisor and yes they do use parabens, but are long-chain parabens which are the safest kind. Boots is a chemist i doubt they would use anything in their products that was cancer causing.

    I didn’t purchase any No7 products, I did however borrow my sister’s No7 face wash and cream products during an overnight stay. What a big mistake! The next morning I woke up with my eyes swollen shut. It took 2 days for the swelling to go away, but now my eyelids are very dry, flakey, and wrinkled. Now at day 3 after using this stuff, I noticed my cheeks are red, blotchy, hot, and bumpy. If you have sensitive skin, DO NOT BUY this brand. I did read that it contains 5 different parabens that might cause allergic reactions and allergies…parabens are also linked to cause cancer.

    I’m a 45 yo male, I have always been told I look much younger than I am, but I’ve still been self conscience of the line on my forehead. Since high school I’ve had creases on both sides of my forehead that have always bothered me and nothing seemed to help, and I’ve tried a lot of creams… My friend, a makeup artist told me about no7 so I gave it a try. I’ve been using it now for about 6 weeks and you can barely see any creases anymore. I had also started to see some minor crows feet and it dramatically toned them down. I would recommend this to anyone and will continue to use it and hopefully see even more results. IMO, it is a great value. My only negative is that I don’t care for the age defense cleanser, It doesn’t lather, which I know it’s not meant to, but I just don’t feel like it does the job for me so I’ve gone back to my Peter Thomas Roth. No7 may not work for everyone but it sure did for me, now my 63 yo mother has started using it and so far so good for her..

No.7 is the best product for my skin. A few things I’ve also learned over the years is to moisturize after cleansing, whether or not you wear makeup and dont wear thick foundations.
    …and no7 makeup wipes remove waterproof mascara without stinging burning or causing redness under my eyes.

Yes, I stopped using it and my symptoms are going away!

    I have tried dozens of creams and serums over the years with few positive results. Since turning 60 I wanted to find something …actually anything that could improve my skin. I tried Boots 7 as it was reasonably priced and was pleasantly surprised within several weeks. I have had skin cancer and wanted a smoother texture and tone to my face. It came through with flying colors..but what I noticed most was the change in texture…smooths out the rough spots and crows feet lines. I was so taken back by the results I had, I told several other friends and they too were pleasantly surprised with the advanced serum. I think it does wonders for older skin or sun damaged skin that is rough and uneven. Never have I had such results and I spend a ton of time in the sun. I look forward to continued results.

    I purchased No7 Lift & Luminate Foundation after a makeup technician tried it on me before Christmas. I liked it very much and was careful to pump just a small amount, no more than necessary, to cover my face. Was I surprised when about a month later, the pump produced nothing. No warning. The bottle looks full from the outside. No way I can figure out to remove the top and scrape out the last amount left clinging to the bottle. For the same number of ounces, other makeup has lasted 4-5 months, with the option to get more out of the bottle by turning it upside down. Is there a way to get the top off the bottle?

    Same thing here! I applied the eye cream one night, and then I woke up the next morning all swollen. Now, 6 days later, the swelling is mostly gone, but the skin around my eyes and nose feels like sand paper. I have never been allergic to anything before. The worst part now is that I have SEVERAL wrinkles under my eyes where before there were none. I don’t know how they are supposed to magically go away now. I wonder what we can do about a cream/product/company that says it will combat wrinkles but instead gives your some new wrinkles instead. Does anyone know of a contact email for the company?

    I don’t find the Boots #7 expensive at all. Compared to the Walmart Oil of Olay, and Loreal productssit is so much cheaper. This blows my mind that you all think it is expensive. I love the products, except the bottle of clear liquid makeup remover that is suppose to remove waterproof mascara and liner. It doesn’t work. The towelettes DO remove makeup. It works perfectly. I love the products and they do work. The Intense night cream is good, but the day cream is a little heavy. I only use my Intense serum for the day. I DON’T care about the SPF. They can leave that out. It makes no difference to me. I’m sticking with the product and telling my friends. I barely have lines anywhere on my face and I am 61 years old. I’ve been using this product for at least 5 years or more. One more thing, I use the products on my chest and neck. No wrinkles and no dark spots.

    I am a certified beauty consultant, and was recently in a training course for No.7 and Soap & Glory products. I’ve read through the comments and was shocked at some of the negative feedbacks. The No.7 product is an amazing product that truly DOES work but yes, it isn’t for EVERYONE. If you’ve had any allergic reactions, then the product isn’t the one at fault, there are questions that are suppose to be asked before purchasing any of the No.7 products, either consult with your primary dermatologist before purchasing new skin products, or if available, seek assistance from a employee in the beauty department of the store. Now, if you’re seeking assistance from a employee in the beauty department, they should be asking questions of any allergies you may have, and they should be asking what you are looking to achieve from the No.7 serum product line because every serum is different and targets different areas. NEVER BUY A SKIN CARE PRODUCT WITHOUT A VISIT TO A DERMATOLOGIST. Know your body, know your skin, and then you’ll be able to find products that’ll give you the results you’re looking for.

    I’m SO disappointed in Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Serum! I’ve been using this on my crow’s feet for about 2 weeks. I only had a few lines per eye, so I wanted to stop anymore from forming.

    Not only did it not work, but it literally trippled the lines!! I wish I was exaggerating! People are always shocked when I say my twins are 22 & they ALWAYS say I that I look around 35, NEVER older (I’m 42). Now, I’ve been told that I look 39 or 40! This product has aged my appearance!

So it didn’t work for me. and now I’m back to square one looking for something that does not costs an arm and leg that works.

    I turned 45 in September of 2015. I started to use the no.7 intense serum and night cream in January and I have to say that it has improve my skin I’ve been told I look 35. Co workers and family has noticed something different. I was using L’Oréal daily moisturizer with SPF 15 and my face broke out. I changed to simple the regular one and no problem. But I decided to buy their SPF 15 and broke out again. I switched to No 7 when I saw it on the Wendy Williams show. I decided to purchase the intense serum & night moisturizer with no SPF and what a difference. My face is softer. I don’t even wear base anymore. I do use simple daily moisturizer with NO SPF to keep my face moist. I shared my beauty regiment with one of my Co workers and she too started to look amazing. For the ladies out there breaking out I truly believe that it’s not the product it might be the SPF 15. Some of us are highly allergic we break out, the face turns red, it itches and starts flaking. Try the night cream first and see how you do. I gave it 4 ☆ because I wish they would make a day serum with no SPF 15 like Simple does.

    I am 68 as of August 05, 2015. I have used Boots #7 Protect & Perfect Intense Serum for two years now. For me it is expensive because I live on Social Security but this is a product I feel I can’t live without, because it has done a wonderful job for me. I wish I could download a picture for your customers to see how I look. I could do a commercial for this product! I look about 45-50 years old and many have commented about my complexion and beauty. I am truly blessed. However, I asked my husband to purchase the ‘set’ for me if he could afford it because it was the only thing I wanted for my 68th Birthday and I was almost out of the Serum (Intense; not Advanced). So we went to the Target Store together and he got the $70 set of Advanced Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum with the two full bottles of the Day and Night Advanced Moisturizing Cream. I have used it faithfully every day and night since then. I have extremely sensitive skin and esp. my face is sensitive. I have had NO trouble ,for two years to now: with blotches, pimples, redness or anything else that some of these women have mentioned. I, in fact, have received MORE compliments and my friends say I ‘glow’. I notice my face is softer and there are less lines already. I do have some lines around my mouth and nose (not deep or highly noticeable, but they are apparent) and light crowfeet at the side of my eyes, but not deeply indented. I have noticed they are shrinking or appearing less. I DO NOT wear foundation or put anything else on my face. I use a little eye mascara because my lashes are very light blonde and because I am extremely fair-skinned, a natural blonde, I have to use a light brown eye brow pencil so I will have eyebrows. Prior to the two years I’ve used Boots #7 Serum, I used Clinique moisturizing day cream, and none other, but not daily. I see no difference between the Intense and the Advanced #7 products. I am just thankful I have the product and the only suggestion I would have is for the manufacturer to give us coupons and maybe free samples with the product; esp. the sets, to offset some of the cost. Also, I do not use the serum and moisturizer product immediately together…that may make a difference. I first wash my face with a non- soap product. Wait for about 5 minutes; then apply the Serum. I then fix my hair or do something for 10 minutes and then apply the moisturizer. I allow each product to settle into my face first before I apply another product. For the record; other products have caused my face to burn, itch and be bruised and red. Boots #7 has never done this and counting today, I have used this every day now (the Advanced product) for 7 days….one week. I also want everyone to know that I don’t work for Boots or any other skincare company (I am retired); and I have not been asked to give this testimony. I am doing so because I truly believe in this product and am thankful I am able to obtain it. I hope this helps others in their decision to purchase this product. Thank you, Wick Stevens, (FL; USA)

    I thought I was reading a post from myself! I too am 58 with my 40th reunion coming up in 7 days. I’m sorry you had a reaction to this product but I’m also glad to have read your review of this product so that I can avoid a similar experience prior to my reunion. I hope things have cleared up for you…no pun intended.

    I bought several products, intense serum, the day and night cream and foundation. I am lucky to be almost wrinkle free at 58, but wanted to start taking better care of my skin to keep it that way, plus my 40th reunion was coming up…. I wanted to look good. Well…. it did make me look younger overnight. I woke to find my face looking like I just hit puberty, bumpy little pimples everywhere, red blotches in some areas and flaky skin in other areas. I NEVER had skin problems before, not even as a teen, and now my face is a mess…. three weeks have passed and I am still all broken out….my reunion is 6 days away. I wish I had never put this stuff on my face.

    I tried the Restore renew Serum, the moisturiser and the spot corrector for 2 weeks. I am 61 and I have slways been told that I look younger. I have used Dior, E. Arden, Occitane, Obagi, and many other serums and I have to say i am amazed how this products worked. I agree with Amy that creams alone won’t do the work. Skin depends on muscle to get tighter and younger looking. Exercise help to produce elasticity and joint lubrication. Diet is also vital. I was skeptic and very surprised at the results no 7 products fid on my face. Still can not believe it.

  • Yvonne 05.11.15 Reply

    I have been using the No.7 Protect & Perfect Protection advanced serum and the night cream and love the way my skin feels, looks, how it applies and I find it reasonably priced. I purchased more today and apparently it has changed? They didn’t have the Advanced only the Intense, is it the same product or has something changed with the product besides the packaging?

    Thanks, Yvonne

    That person who told you that was probably jealous of you. When someone makes a remark like that, you can bet they envy you for something. I would bet they are also very unhappy with their own life. I’m looking into the serums. There are so many I don’t know what to choose but I am 65 and definitely fight dry skin. Oh, I also fight adult acne. Thought I would eventually leave that behind!

  • Michael & Steve 03.17.15 Reply

    My husband and I started using No.7 two weeks ago, we are in love with this stuff, It makes our skin feel so refreshed and we cant wait to see the results we may have after using this for a few weeks. Will most likely keep using because of the way it makes our skin feel even if it doesn’t remove fine lines. It gets and A+ in my book. As two gay men we have to keep our faces looking their best.

    I have taken care of my skin since 6th grade when my grandmother told me to never wash my face with soap again. I haven’t and I’m now 62 with no crows feet and no nose-to-mouth lines. I have used different skincare products every single day and night. I changed to Boots 7 two years ago and LOVE it! No need to change again, and I have very sensitive skin.

I REALLY WANT TO KNOW IF Paraben’s are in ANY of no7 products, before I purchase the serum?????

    I started using two of the products as soon as I heard about it few years ago. I am allergic to everything tested for, but not this. I am seventy years old, and last month when I had to see a cardiologist for first time, he guessed my age to be fifty five. two weeks after he put stents in my heart he was still commenting on how young I looked.

  • Kelli 01.21.15 Reply

    I purchased the intense serum and the day and night cream, used it once and my face broke out in small red bumps everywhere. I’ve NEVER had a reaction to any product I’ve ever used before. SO disappointed in this product and completely embarrassed to have to walk around looking like this (going on 3 days after using it one time and my face is still red and bumpy)…hopefully it clears up soon. Am definitely returning this.

    I have used No 7 for several years and have loved the products. My last eye cream purchases for my husband and myself, however, seem to be different in color. Additionally, my eyes broke out in the corners with dermatitis and I had to go to the dermatologist for treatment. Has the formulation changed in the eye creams – Protect and Perfect and the Intense version? I looked online at the UK site and saw that they have a pro-retinol in them which I don’t recall seeing before as I’m allergic to that. I welcome any comments. Thanks.

  • Amy 08.14.14 Reply

    Hi Dotty. I have never commented on any website before, but your comments have inspired me to share what has happened with me. I’ll be 52 in a couple of days, August 16. I have been using the Boots no 7 Lift and Luminate line for about 10 weeks now and really like it as well. Prior to that I had not used anything at all. I looked terrible but was so busy with my job that I just didn’t have time to do anything about it or to even really think about it. I also had doubts that there was anything that would make a difference (short of a face lift which was not an option for me). My main issue was that I had lots of sagging skin on my face and neck. I had jowls, turkey neck, no jawline, droopy eyes and my lips were droopy/thin line. My skin looked unhealthy as well and makeup did nothing to hide it. So… what I did was avoid mirrors. Well, my daughter got engaged and her wedding will be in May 2015. Over the summer break (I’m a math teacher) it started to dawn on me that there would be lots of pictures, so I started to panic. I looked at all of the procedures that could be done, but too expensive. After hours and hours of internet research I decided to try the Boots no 7 line. It was within my budget and there was a new Ulta store that just opened that was 5 minutes from my house. The other thing that I decided to do was to try facial exercises because, like I mentioned above, my big problem was sagging skin. To my surprise the combination of the Boots no 7 and the facial exercises has really worked. I’ve been using the Boots no 7 for ten weeks and have been doing the facial exercises for 7 weeks (the facial exercise program that I selected goes for 12 weeks and then you just do maintenance after that). My husband, daughter and twin sister, after laughing at me at first, have now admitted that it is really working. My twin sister said that I now look 10 years younger her. I know that I still have a ways to go but I’m hoping that by the time of the wedding that I feel like at least I’ve done all I can do to look my best. Thank you dotty!

    Using the cream for dry/ sensitive skin.. Absolutely love it, before all creams were causing reactions on my face leaving red rashes and scaly skin and so I had to use more make up to cover it up, since I switched to no7 I barely have to use any foundation my skin has improved greatly! Absolutely delighted not too expensive either will be using from now on

    Hi, My name is Maureen. I am 70 years old. It seems my whole life I have been plagued with dark circles under my eyes. I have spent tons of bucks on everything that reviews said worked, with no real difference. This week, I was at Target, had not read any reviews, but had seen one of #7 products talked about on TV, so I drafted over to check it out. Wow, there were many. I ended up picking up #7 Restore & Renew Restaure Eye Cream. This in 2 days, morning and night has not only lighten under my eyes, but the deep set line under the dark circles is almost gone.
    For me, I look like I had a eye lift and my circles were almost gone. .

    I purchased No. 7 Men. On the package it says “Reduces signs of fatigue fast”. Really? I have been using this product twice a day for a month and the bags and dark circles are still under my eyes. The fast fatigue reduction has not happened. I followed the directions and cleanse before each use. I do like the roll on aspect but otherwise it has done nothing.

    I haven’t worn make up in years. My skin reacts badly and halfway through the day it looks terrible. The gal at Walgreen’s recommended Boots and told me right off that I could return it if I didn’t like it. I am thrilled. I can wear make up again and it looks good all day long. I love the way my skin feels and I get compliments. Will never, ever use another product except Boots.

    Ordered a swag of beauty products (well at least 3 which is a lot for me..) from Amazon after reading about anti-aging products in Good Houskeeping, including Boots no 7 Lift and Luminate Night Cream. The first couple of times I used it my face did get a bit blotchy. But I came back to it a few months later and am completely sold. My skin is looking great and I definitely see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Have been using it every night for about a month and have had no problems as with first use. I love it and would love to try other products in the range but no one here in Oz seems to stock them. I’m 52 and like anything that turns back the clock!

  • LInda 04.17.14 Reply

    I don’t think that it is. I have been using it for about a month and my face has started to break out randomly. Not much, just a pimple or whitehead here and there. But any breakout is too much. I have noticed a slight difference in firmness, but not enough to put up with the pimples

  • Olivia 02.16.14 Reply

    Jean,
    Sara is probably right in thinking that you might be allergic to something in your Lift and Luminate cream.
    All Boots No. 7 products are hypo-allergenic, meaning that any ingredients known to cause an allergic reaction have been removed.
    However, everyone’s skin is different, and your skin may be sensitive to particular ingredients in the formula. Also, as you use soap and water to clean your skin, the rich ingredients in the cream that hydrate and protect the skin (and serve the function of anti-ageing) may have been too much for your skin!
    I would advise you to start by using the Soft and Soothed Gentle Cleanser by No 7 to clean the skin, followed by the Beautiful Skin Day Cream (moisturiser) to hydrate and protect. These are the basics available in the range, to kick start your skincare routine gently, before you add in anti-ageing. The cleanser also is a creamy consistency that dissolves dirt and grime but leaves your skin soft and gentle.
    I live in the UK, so I hope these products are available to you (if you’re in the US)!
    Boots in the UK has very high customer service standards, and Walgreens (their partnering company in the US) should be the same. So if you require a refund, they should do their best to make sure they get it!
    …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.
    Hope this helps,
    Livvy xx
