AD-Gifted. Cyclax Skincare..

How are you doing my lovelies? Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I just thought I’d share with you some lovely products I’ve received from one of my favourite brands, Cyclax, thank you so much to Abbie for sending them out to me.


 I received one of my absolute favourite products in this gorgeous package: the Cyclax Moistura cleanser/toner 2 in 1. I love this product so much. I already have a review of this if you would like to see, HERE. The post also includes the super-duper Cyclax Moistura Daily Moisturiser for normal/dry skin too.

I’m really happy to be able to try now the Gentle Facial Exfoliator, the Treatment Hand Cream and Cyclax Nature Pure Vitamin E Face and Body Cream. This face and body cream intrigues me, I don’t think that I’ve used a suitable cream for both face AND the body, well I shall find out shan’t I? I hope you will come back soon and I shall let you know how I got on with these lovely products. 

Take care of yourselves.



{AD-gifted} Cyclax Moistura. 2 in 1 Cleanser/Toner and Daily Moisturiser…


The Cyclax company was founded in 1896 by Frances Hamilton Forsyth, under the name of Mrs. Frances Hemming in London. It’s one of the worlds oldest cosmetics companies still in existence! In 1939 Cyclax started to provide beauty kits to servicewomen which included their famous ” Auxilary Red lipstick” the company was granted a Royal Warrant by 1961. During the 1970s Cyclax was bought by Lehman Brothers Inc, which lead to rebranding and new products being added to their range. Cyclax was then sold to Cooper Laboratories, before being sold on again to British American Cosmetics. It has changed hands a number of times over the years, but all the while still creating new products. In 2018 Cyclax was acquired by Three Pears International Wholesale, who are “committed to 100% UK manufacture of all Cyclax products”

The Cyclax ranges:

Natural Classic is the original Henna Treatment Wax with Pure Henna. Revitalises all types of hair, especially hair that has been damaged by bleaching, perming or tinting. A new addition the Natural Classic range is dry shampoo with two elegant fragrances in a handy purse-sized 150ml spray.

I have 2 products from the Cyclax Moistura range. A range particularly good if you are like me and have dry dehydrated skin. The first of the products is the Moistura Cleanser/Toner, which is a 2 in 1 product. I have been loving using this first thing in the morning.

The lovely fresh smell just livens up the senses as I use it. I have tried two ways of using the cleanser/toner. The first way by massaging over the face and then removing with a face cloth. It works for me! The second is to pour the cleanser/toner onto a damp cotton pad and swipe over the face. It works for me too! I have used it to remove makeup, and although it struggled to remove all my eye makeup in one go, it didn’t sting my eyes to go in for a second time. But it really does leave my skin feeling fresh and cleansed without being left dry and tight. A really lovely cleanser/toner that I am enjoying using.

The second Cyclax product is a delightful moisturiser. This is the Moistura Daily Moisturiser for Normal/Dry skin.

The first thing I noticed from this cream is the subtle smell of, well to me it was rose, but checking the ingredients there is no rose in the cream. It does contain Witch Hazel so maybe that is what the fragrance is, and it’s rather lovely. It also has lanolin and Beeswax within, so it isn’t suitable for vegans. This is a lightweight cream but it certainly packs in some moisture. It’s a perfect moisturiser for this time of year if you do prefer a lighter day cream but still need the hydration too. It’s been keeping my skin nice and moisturised all day until I’m ready to do my night time routine. As for the Cyclax Daily Moisturiser under foundation, it works perfectly for me whether I am using a matte or dewy foundation.

You will find all the Cyclax products in many chemists/pharmacies, and both independent and national retailers. I’ve also seen them on the Fragrance Direct and Amazon websites. If you would like to see the complete Cyclax range you will find them HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today.




Oqibo Purifying Cleanser & Toner 250ml

Hi there lovely people!

Regular readers of my blog may remember I was sent some lovely skin-care samples to try, I have a Purifying Cleanser/Toner from Oqibo to tell you about today.


Firstly this is what Oqibo says 

“An ultra-gentle cleansing gel that regulates sebum and protects the natural healthy balance of your skin.” 

  • Super-effective cleansing without dryness or irritation
    • Triple-action formulation
    • Suitable for all skin types
    • Purifies, mattifies & tones
    • Remineralises the skin
    • Whisks away stubborn make-up, dirt and grime
    • Restores essential minerals

I have enjoyed using this cleanser/toner which is a lovely clear gel. It smells amazing of peppermint, that also adds a cooling sensation to the skin which has been a Godsend in the heat of our British Summer, not to mention my hot flushes too! (TMI) The key ingredients within this cleanser are Marine extract of Weaving Algae which actually “mimics” the skins structure giving it essential proteins and minerals to tone and balance the skin. Extracts of Ulva Lactuca works with the skin to balance the production of sebum (oils) and cinnamon which is  anti-bacterial, that cleans and tones the skin giving a more brighter radiant appearance. 

How I used this:  I poured a small amount (about 2p size) onto my hand and added a little water to create a foam, then I massaged it over my skin in a circular motion for 2 minutes making sure I went down my neck too. I then rinsed with a clean wet face cloth, which is how I like to remove all types of cleanser. I then patted my face and neck dry with a towel. Afterwards my skin felt clean and refreshed and very smooth, it also looked brighter and less grey looking, and it didn’t feel dry and tight afterwards either. I’ve been using it for a week now and the look of my skin has improved, it just looks more radiant and smooth, and I always feel that I’m getting a deep cleanse,especially if I’ve worn make up. After cleansing with the Purifying Cleanser/Toner I have been using moisturiser samples that Oqibo sent me, and I shall review those in a separate post. In the meantime check out the Oqibo website where you will find not only skincare, but also supplements and candles too. HERE

Thank you for dropping in today!




On Trial…. OQIBO Skincare….

Welcome to a new week lovely people.

I have been sent some gorgeous skincare samples to trial from a brand I had never heard of until recently. The brand is OQIBO. I would like to thank Beth for sending me these lovely samples to try.


This is the utterly gorgeous box that the products came in.

IMG_3628When I opened the box it was packed out with beautiful black tissue with a super envelope on top.

IMG_3637Inside the envelope are some sample sachets of two different moisturisers, and there are plenty of them for me to trial over the week.

IMG_3672To top it all I was given a full size Purifying cleanser/toner to try. I’ve been using it since it arrived on Thursday.

I’m enjoying using the products  so far, and in a weeks time I shall come back with my thoughts on the cleanser and the moisturisers. I’ve got a few reviews coming up this week on  Elegant Ageless Beauty, a couple of blusher reviews from MUA, a body scrub, 2 lipsticks and 2 mascaras as well. So I shall be pretty busy.

I hope you all have a great week lovely people.
