The Skincare Products I’m using at 63 Years Old, Cleansers.

Hey there lovely people, Welcome to my blog Elegant Ageless Beauty. It’s been a while since my last post so I thought that I would start back with a basic one, one that starts at the beginning “a very good place to start” like the song says. So let us start with Cleansing.


I have three cleansers on the go right now, I do like a pick-and-mix haha, and I have only just started to use the oil cleanser from Simple and wow it is rather wonderful! 

The Simple Hydrating Cleansing Oil really is hydrating, it is perfect for my mature dry skin. It removes my makeup, including mascara beautifully. I massage the oil all across my skin, including my eyes, and then I use a wet muslin cloth or face cloth to remove it. Afterwards, my skin doesn’t feel dry and tight. It just feels lovely and clean, and soft too, with no oily film left behind. There is no perfume, colour or dyes within this cleansing oil, it contains 100% Grapeseed oil, as well as vitamins A and E. Dermatologically tested and approved. Ophthalmologically tested. Hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic.  The bottle is made from recycled plastic, which is why it looks greyish in colour. The Hydrating Cleansing Oil is PETA-certified cruelty-free and vegan, and most certainly does not test on animals,  and this is globally I might add. Quite simply, kind to skin, kind to animals and kind to our beautiful planet. I purchased it from Superdrug HERE. You can also get it at Boots HERE

Next up is one of my favourite products that I purchase regularly. This is a Superdrug own-brand product, it’s the Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser. So thick and creamy and quite delicious. Cocoa butter with lots of Vitamin A, B and E in the ingredients. You just simply massage over the face for a couple of minutes then remove with the muslin cloth that comes with the cream cleanser. I love how this gives my face a micro-exfoliation as I remove it, and my skin feels soft and hydrated afterwards and looks glowing. I can get a deep cleanse with it too, removing all makeup. I don’t tend to take it over my eyes though, I would prefer to use a separate eye makeup remover. get the Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser from Superdrug on your local High Street or online HERE.

My third cleanser is one by Garnier. from the Skin Active range, it’s the Rose Soothing Cleansing Milk, enriched with rose water and suitable for sensitive and dry skin. It’s called “milk” but it’s thicker, more like a lotion to me. It’s enriched with Damask rose flower water, and there are no parabens. No silicones. No artificial colourants in this cleansing milk. Rose water is known for its soothing properties, so it’s been very gentle on my skin. I use this as I do all my cleansers, I massage over the face then remove it with a wet face cloth/muslin cloth and remove it that way. My skin afterwards feels very clean and fresh, and really very soft. Afterwards, I finish off with my toner, which will be featured in my next post. I purchased the Garnier Rose Soothing Cleansing Milk from Superdrug HERE.

That’s it from me for now, I hope you will come back soon to see my thoughts on which toners I use in my skincare routine for a 63-year-old.


Trying To Get My Glow Back. 60 plus Beauty on a Budget..

Hello lovely people, Happy New Year 2023! Welcome back to my blog Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa, and I hope you are all doing okay. 

My goodness, it’s rather chilly here in the UK at the moment, and I am feeling cold when I usually don’t. I tend to only pop the heating on to warm the radiators when I do get too badly cold during the day when I’m on my own, anything to save money with the cost of living crisis we (some) are facing.

I thought that for this post on my blog, I would share with you the skincare that I’m using currently, and as I’m in my early 60’s now I need products to help my skin get a bit of a glow as it can look a bit grey. I’m not bothered about wrinkles, they are a sign that I have lived and I’m lucky to be this age, it is more about skincare for giving me some glow and radiance back to my face, and at a budget affordable for me. 

First up is cleansing, and I love the No7 Radiant Results Revitalising Foaming Cleanser, which unfortunately I believe is now discontinued, which is such a shame. I need to find an alternative.

Next up is the wonderful Gentle Facial Exfoliator by Cyclax. With Green Tea, Shea Butter and fine granules of Walnut shells this is a really gentle exfoliator for my dry mature skin, I use it about 3 times a week and it’s enough for me and it doesn’t dry my skin. You can purchase from Amazon UK HERE.

When I’m not using the exfoliator I will use the Lacura Healthy Glow Rose Toner. You will find Lacura products in your local Aldi supermarket. The Rose toner is so moisturising and calming with Hyaluronic acid and Aloe Vera, Rose and Elderflower, it actually smells amazing too and it’s also alcohol-free.

Now, one of the best sheet face masks I’ve used. This is the Nivea Natural Radiance 10-Minute Sheet Mask. This is the best treat for my tired-looking skin. It’s infused with Argan Oil  Shea butter, and Magnolia Bark extract. The sheet mask itself fits okay and feels soft to the touch when on the skin. I applied it and relaxed for 10 minutes and when I removed it I massaged the serum into my face. After a while, I noticed my skin looked so radiant, the best I’ve had it looking in a long time. I really do need to purchase some more of these sheet masks! By the way, they’re biodegradable too. My daughter gave me this mask for Christmas and I’m not sure where she purchased it, but you could check out Nivea’s website HERE. Oh, and yes, it came with the facial roller too.

My favourite daily moisturiser for giving me a more glowy complexion is my gorgeous Cyclax Moistura Daily moisturiser, I love this! It may be light but for my dry mature face it’s perfect and under foundation, it works perfectly for me whether I am using a matte or dewy foundation. You could pop over to Amazon UK for this HERE.

Lastly my eye cream of choice at the moment is the Boots Ingredients Caffeine Eye Cream. Caffeine is an antioxidant, so is perfect for using around the eye area, it makes the skin look, fresher more hydrated and moisturised. I tend to tap the cream into the skin gently and leave to soak in before starting any makeup. You can purchase from HERE.

Well, that’s me done for now, thank you so much for stopping by and reading today, I shall be back with more product reviews soon.

Take care, 



Two of the Best Micellar Cleansers, and they’re Vegan too!

Hi, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

I have purchased a few cleansers just recently, and two are of the Micellar variety. I’ve got a Micellar Oil and a Micellar Water, both of them are from B. Skincare which is a Superdrug own brand.

So let me begin with the Micellar Oil.

Firstly, I just want to say that if you look at the Superdrug website description of the Micellar Oil the photo shows the oil to be bright orange in colour. It really isn’t. It’s actually a very pale amber colour. Anyhoo, this is an oil that goes milky when water is added onto the skin. I’ve used it over my eyes and it doesn’t irritate mine at all. I don’t use it to remove eye makeup, although it does get the last traces of mascara that may have been left behind. This has Pomegranate seed oil within so it is very moisturising and brightening for the skin, there’s Vitamin E to soothe and protect and Chia seed oil to purify. You can apply and cleanse the skin by way of using the oil on a cotton pad and swiping over the face, but my chosen method is by pouring some into my hand and massaging over the face then removing with a muslin cloth or face cloth. Once rinsed away my skin feels very clean with no oily residue left behind. It’s good to massage on to the face and leave to sink right in then wash away with a wet face cloth, I’ve done this a few times and my skin really does feel so clean afterwards, and not dry and tight. This is a really lovely cleansing oil.

Now, this is the B. Skincare Micellar Water. It’s gorgeous for me to use first thing in the morning before my bath. It cleanses, tones and just refreshes the skin beautifully. I used to use micellar waters to remove my eye makeup only, but now I always use a separate eye makeup remover and just use the micellar water on my face. I have used this on my eyes to remove eye makeup to test it out and it’s pretty good at the job. I did, however, have to give it a couple of goes to be mascara free. To use this in my makeup removal/cleansing routine I remove eye makeup, then I use a cleansing oil or balm cleanser or cream cleanser then I will use my micellar water to ensure I have got all traces of makeup off of my skin, then I would carry on with all the other steps in my usual skincare routine. The B. Skincare Micellar Water really is the best micellar water I’ve used so far, and I have tried a few. It doesn’t sting because it’s so gentle and leaves my skin feeling soft and fresh and cleansed. Perfect for me.

Superdrug Optimum PhytoCalm Bedtime Cleansing Balm…{Not an Ad, gifted. I purchased this myself}

Hello my lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I have been using this cleansing balm for about 6 weeks now and I actually got very disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to share my thoughts with you. As soon as I bought it from Superdrug Online I tried it and really loved it and I decided to get another one so that I had a backup. To my dismay it was no longer available, even though it was a new product. I have since found out that it is still available, but it appears to be in store only right now. 

As I said at the start I really love the Optimum PhytoCalm Bedtime Cleansing Balm. It’s a Superdrug own brand which I am a huge fan of. 

Although this says Bedtime Cleansing Balm, I have been using it in the morning as well as at night. For night time, if I have been wearing makeup I remove it first with another Superdrug product, a miscellar water. I then massage all over my face including eyes with the balm cleanser. It’s not a massively hard balm it’s easy to get from the pot to use and it does move easily over the skin and melts almost oil like into my face. It doesn’t sting or irritate my eyes, and it takes away the last traces of makeup that the miscellar water has left behind when I remove it with a wet face cloth, or muslin cloth. It does smell amazing too, very sweet and floral, which would be from the Four O’clock Flower which is within the product. This beautiful fragrant plant is often used in skincare for sensitive skin due to it’s calming, hydrating and strengthening properties. The Optimum PhytoCalm Bedtime Cleansing Balm will always be a repurchase for me now for as long as it’s available, it’s just lovely and leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and smooth. There’s an overnight mask available which I shall share with you soon. 

The Superdrug Optimum range of skincare is cruelty free and suitable for vegans. See more products HERE



[AD-gifted] We Love! By Superdrug. Cleanser, Body Scrub and Body Butter

Hello and welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

Regular readers of my blog will know I love bringing natural beauty products to share here, and before Christmas I was sent some lovely products to try, from Superdrug.

This a Superdrug own brand from the WE LOVE range of all natural products. I have tried some face masks from the range which I reviewed on EAB, I’ll leave links at the end of this post if you’d like to take a look.

One of the things I love about this range of products is that the packaging is all recyclable. Once empty just give the pots a wash and pop them into your recycling bin! I saw a review where someone said that the packaging is colourless and boring. It’s not the prettiest, but it is environmentally friendly. The products are also suitable for vegetarian and vegans.

The We Love Cleansers Coconut Cleanser is gorgeous, It smells amazing! Containing coconut oil and shea butter this is a super creamy cleanser that I do prefer to use in my morning routine. The smell of the coconut just wakes up the sluggish morning senses. It literally just melts into the skin, you don’t need a lot of product, and it then wipes away easily with a face cloth. I did find however that it’s not great at makeup removal at the end of the day. You can check out the We Love Cleansers coconut cleanser HERE.

The We Love Body Scrubs pink grapefruit jelly scrub is another big hit for me. I have been using body scrubs a bit more recently and the fruitier the better! This smells just like a pink grapefruit, it is really beautiful. With Grapefruit oil extract in there and rice germ powder for the scrubby bit. It has castor oil for moisturisation. It certainly isn’t a scratchy body scrub it’s really comfortable to use, and leaves the skin soft and glowing and smelling gorgeous! Check out the pink grapefruit jelly scrub HERE.

After the bath or shower using the jelly scrub, how about a body butter that smells like chocolate? The We Love Moisturisers Cocoa body butter is just that. It looks like a delicious milk chocolate creamy pudding and it smells like one too! It’s not quite thick enough to be called a body butter in my opinion, but even so it’s very moisturising on my skin, it’s not sticky and sinks in just lovely. It contains shea butter and cacao butter for  lovely velvety feeling skin. I suffer from very dry skin on my right shin where I have a scar, the cocoa body butter smoothed and hydrated it for me. I have used it after shaving my legs and it did tingle a little afterwards, but that soon wore off. If you love chocolate you are going to love this! Check it out HERE.

Right now in Superdrug the offer is Buy 1 get 2nd half price on selected Superdrug brand skincare.
