The only thing I can say about this product is that it made me look like a teenager, but not in a good way! I don't have many lines, but my skin is dry and tired-looking so I thought this product might give me a lift. The No 7 consultant advised my to use this under a moisturiser, but I felt it was too rich for that. I did enjoy using this cream. It felt gorgeous to apply and made my skin feel soft and moisturised. I wasn't impressed enough to want to buy it as my skin did not actually look any better and there wasn't any difference in the appearance of my fine lines. After using it for 2 weeks I had a close-up look in the mirror and I was horrified. My skin was absolutely covered in blackheads and blocked pores. My skin had not been this bad since my teens. I had to go out and buy some masks and spot products to clear my skin up. I stopped using Protect and Perfect immediately and the blackheads have not come back. If you have exceptionally dry skin this might be worth trying, but it's not for me.

I bought this as I run out of my hydrating serum, and I thought I give this a try when I have been trying to find a cheaper replacementThe price attracted you to buy in the first place, I was given a nice make up palette as well as gift.I used this during a very hectic tour, and unfortunately other than red spots, pores it does nothing to my skin. I thought it comes down to the lack of sleep and travelling, but as soon as I stop using it, all the problems are gone.I have a very young looking look, and I thought this might help to preserve my skin condition. It might be too nutritious for my skin and my skin simply rejected it.I like the texture, and I tried to experiment by putting all over my neck.. but it didn't really work, my neck didn't feel any effect.I might recommend this to someone older (at least 35 yrs old) as my mom like the product a lot she replaces her La Mer collection for over 1 yr. For me, too young to use at all

I haven't used this for a longer period of time - it has too much of that silicone feel to it - so I can't vouch for any long time results. And looking at the ingredients I can't imagine just how this could be effective. The vitamin A is retinyl palmitate (a very weak form of retinol), the vitamin C is sodium ascorbyl phosphate (a stable, ineffective form) and the peptide is the last ingredient listed.I don't mind that Boots carried out their own tests on this. Who else would pay a lot of money to have these tests done? And the tests were in vivo (skin biopsies) on humans, so how excactly is that worse than consumer evaluations (so called "real people" filling in a form saying yes, my skin does feel a bit softer)?I won't buy again because of all the silicones (and I use other stuff that gives visible results), but I liked this better than, for example, Estée Lauder Perfectioninst CP+ serum and Olay Regenerist serum. Both of which are similar ingredients-wise.

Made my face feel very smooth and soft ,didn't make me go red or itchy. Possibly gave me a few small blocked pores after using it for at least 3 weeks. Nice light fragrance which disappears after application.It didn't annoy my eyes. I actually used this consistently every day until it was gone which must mean I liked it because usually I react to a product or just get bored of it. I got it in the glass pump which was hard to get the last out of so I'm pleased to see it now comes in a tube. I haven't repurchased this yet but I probably will if I see it on offer

Boots #7 Protect and Perfect ingredients:----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Cyclopentasiloxane, Aqua, Butylene glycol,Dimethicone cross polymer, Cyclohexasiloxane, Glycerin, Dimethicone copolyol, Sodium ascorbyl phosphate, Polysorbate 20, Magnesium sulphate, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium PCA, Retinyl palmitate, Methylparaben, Propylene glycol, Lupinus albus, Carbomer, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Panax ginseng, Morus Alba, Tocopherol, Palmitoyl pentapeptide-3~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Wow, look at all of the parabens...tsk, tsk, tsk...(shaking head...) :-(I used the US version 1st because I did not know there was a different UK version. It was cheap @ my local Target, so I picked one up. My sister was kind enough to get the UK version when she was there. She must have purchased 20-30 tubes!I still have a 3/4 tube left. I don't know why I stopped, but I just did. I only used it for a very short while, I'd say about 1-2 wks. I don't recall if I broke out or not, but I do remember that it absorbed nicely and did not feel greasy. UPDATE 07/11/08--now I remember.... I got lots of little white heads and the small creases on the sides of my nostrils got flaky...also, my skin looked a bit bumpy...

I'm in the "I-have-no-effing-idea-what-all-the-hype-was-about" camp on this one. Seriously, it didn't seem to make a darn bit of difference to my face or its wrinkles. Oh? What was that sound I just heard...another $25 bucks being flushed down the toilet! Shame on Boots for supposedly paying for a study to be done. I'm afraid they've lost any integrity in my eyes.

I dont know what I would do without this product, if I had to choose 1 thing to take on a desert Island, this is it. I admit it does not smell particularly nice- but hell, it makes my skin so smooth and pores are much less noticable now I have been using this for past 4 months. I suffer from sensitive skin which breaks out at any small things. Whenever I do, I slap this on red blotches and it calms my skin down very quickly. My skin improved a lot since using it. I have not really noticed 'younger loking skin' but it does calm irritations and makes my skin almost flawless. I think it does make your skin peel somewhat, when I massge it in, I can sometimes feel my dead skin lifting off,,, for people with sensitive skin like moi who cannot tolerate scrubs, this serves as a gentlest exfoliater. My only criticism is 1. smell, 2.that it does not last very long- I use it day and night, 30 ml bottle lasts just over a month.but overall, fantastic product.

Don't believe the hype! It doesn't work and doesn't even smell that great.

I bought this just before all the hype when it was in a glass bottle. From what I've read about the 'proof' it was only carried out in a lab under controlled conditions and not on real people in real life and it was paid for ....by Boots. I've no idea if the anti-oxidants really work but I really hate the texture of this. Its silicone rich and my oily skin does not like it at all. Just clogs pores.Isn't even good as a moisturiser. At least I got one of their 'free' kits with it so all was not lost.It is annoying that as soon as everyone wanted it they upped the price and put it in cheaper packaging. I have really gone off Boots No7 stuff, the quality overall is not worth the ££ they charge for it these days.

Oh now what can I say about Boots wonder serum??Well, for starters this used to come in a much larger glass pump bottle, it looked very nice, but now it comes in a much SMALLER plastic tube ( for the same price no less ). The reason for this is because of the mass hysteria that went on after this serum was PROVEN in a lab to work. Now i'm not saying it doesn't work but I know for a fact Boots paid to have their serum tested and boy was that stunt successful. The serum claims to reduce sun damage and protect against free radicals, i'm sure it does (minimally) - its' not a miracle in a bottle, but if it's PROVEN to work then of course everyone will rush out and buy it, at one point it was out of stock across the country. C'mon ladies, get real, do you think other serums don't use the same stuff?? This stuff works, that's proven, to what degree God only knows but at least it does SOMETHING, on the other hand I hate the way Boots has reduced the amount you get and kept the price the same to increase profit, they've also removed the pretty glass bottles that you used to get and now we get plastic. Boots have also shamelessy released a body serum in the range (you can get a giant one for like £99 which they've now reduced right down because they realise they went a bit too far) and also a day and night cream. Come on Boots, we're not mugs!! Well i'm not anyway. This stuff has the same sort of ingredients as any other serum, it makes no visible difference to my 23 yr old skin, it doesn't really make it feel that soft and i would much prefer to use an oil like Clarins oils on my skin. This stuff is OK but only OK, I wouldn't buy it but i'll use up my sample. And shame on Boots for their vulgar marketing!
