Not norms a fan of High Street brand skincare products as I think they have a tendency toward too much perfume and too many additives for my liking and, I’m not always convinced that they can help my ageing skin 🙁

However, when beaut beauty guru Caroline Hirons recommended Neutrogena’s Visibly Renew Elasti-Boost Body Balm, I thought I’d give it a crack!

This daily body balm is supposed to help restore the skin’s elasticity, as well as provide long-lasting nourishment for us olds whose skin, lets face it, ain’t as bouncy or as supple as it used to be. So, whilst I’m not sure it can relocate my butt to it’s original location (always hoping for a miracle in a jar me…), here’s what I think>>>

Whilst I find it quite strongly scented (only because I’m used to no scent at all in my body moisturiser), it has a lovely creamy texture that penetrates fairly quickly (although I do wait a couple of mins before I put my threads on) and, I find it very nourishing and hydrating without feeling tacky or greasy.

£4.99 for 200ml from Boots

Love a bargain that actually works
