Dermalogica have created the first retinol treatment that you can customise to suit your skin type, allowing you to tailor the retinol concentration to your skins needs. There is no doubt that Dermalogica have really done their homework when creating this formula, it contains retinol – one of our favourite anti-ageing ingredients, which has been shown to both increase collagen production and prevent collagen degradation, to help us achieve younger looking skin. The overnight retinol repair cream also contains several other ingredients including vitamin C and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, which have been shown to increase collagen synthesis too.

Best for Hydration – Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Daily Youth Restoring Serum Capsules

Elizabeth Arden has created a serum that claims to instantly infuse skin with ‘youth-restoring’ ceramides, which are said to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles by supporting the skins natural collagen. Ceramides can improve the barrier function of the skin to enhance hydration for healthier and ‘plumper’ looking skin. This is fab news for those of you that suffer from dry skin or are on the look out for a great hydrating anti-ageing product. In addition to the hydrating benefits of ceramides, these capsules also contain several fatty acids, which too can help the skin retain its moisture. Last but not least, this formula contains vitamins A and vitamins E, which are potent antioxidants, so can scavenge damaging free radicals and help prevent signs of premature ageing! Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Daily Youth Restoring Serum Capsules get a thumbs up from the Geeks.

Best Buy on a Budget – Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Age Defying Day Moisturiser

Olay claim they can reduce 7 forms of ageing in one age-defying day moisturiser. Starting with minimising lines and wrinkles, nourishing moisturisation and tone enhancement moving onto gentle exfoliation, pore refinement and antioxidants then finishing off with subtle firming. Green tea can help prevent the breakdown of collagen so helps to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as being able to prevent dark spots and an uneven build-up of the pigment melanin across the skin. Citric acid has been included as it is a chemical exfoliant, so can break down the top layer of dead cells allowing them to come off easily to reveal the newer and healthier skin underneath! Vitamin C has been proven to improve hyperpigmentation, just like green tea and is a commonly used antioxidant so can help prevent premature signs of ageing. Finally, there are two sun protection agents in this bottle, titanium dioxide and zinc dioxide. Both of these work to shield your skin from UVA and UVB rays for broad-range sunscreen protection. We told you it was jam-packed, and for only £15, it gets a 10/10 from the Beauty Geeks!

Best for Bright Eyes – Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand

Gone are the days of carrying a separate creams and lotions for each of our eye worries, not to mention the range of concealers to match each of our specific concerns. Charlotte Tilbury has created an A-MA-ZING 2 in 1 eye cream and concealer product to make covering up tired eyes on the go a doddle!

The eye cream is jam-packed with super hydrating ingredients including shea butter, jojoba seed oil, rice protein, sweet almond oil, squalene, sodium hyaluronate, borage seed oil, sunflower seed oil and glycerin (the list is endless…), which will hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes, making it temporarily appear healthier and more youthful. The eye cream also boasts Tocopherol (Vitamin E), a potent antioxidant that can mop up damaging free radicals that could otherwise lead to signs of premature skin ageing. However, it doesn’t have much in the way of revolutionary anti-ageing ingredients so won’t quite replace a good anti-ageing eye cream.

The concealer is packed full of silicones, which help to smooth out any uneven areas of the skin that would normally collect make up. It also contains iron oxides, titanium dioxide and mica, which act the same way a highlighter would, to illuminate the skin for a brighter looking eye area.

We think the miracle wand is the perfect solution for those of you wishing to top up your eye cream and concealer throughout the day or on the move. The Beauty Geeks have added this to our beauty arsenal for when we have really early starts, and long days spent travelling. The eye cream is really hydrating and the concealer will definitely brighten up your eyes and is capable of a light coverage.
