A few nights ago my partner commented on how youthful my skin looked; completely unprompted and whilst watching an episode from one of our current box set obsessions – I think that it may actually have been a replaying of the second Twin Peaks season (definitely not as good as the first season by the way) but I digress…
One careful inspection in the mirror later (I haven’t been paying that much attention to my skin recently) and I concluded my other half was right. There has been a noticeable improvement. My skin feels much smoother and the myriad of fine lines have mostly vanished. Even my deeper forehead lines have subsided! I genuinely feel I look about ten years younger, fifteen in good light – Ok that maybe that is a slight exaggeration but there is certainly a marked difference in my skin.
I was kindly sent the Ultra Radiance Collection a month or so ago and at first glance was a little sceptical to its claims. I’ve never been too sold on the whole Anti-ageing thing in all honesty, quite frequently I feel that it is an excuse to make a bigger hole in our wallets with very little payback from the product, however on this occasion I have been proven most definitely wrong!
The Beyond Beauty Ultra Radiance Age-Defying Serum is rich in potassium (which according to studies can increase collagen levels), essential fatty acids, omegas 3,6 and 9 and vitamins A, D and E, the serum is a gel booster that claims to keep your skin hydrated for up to eight hours. It also can also reduce inflammation and sun damage and soothe irritated skins.
I will be the first to admit that fitting in a quality Skincare routine with a non-sleeping little one has been tough, my poor neglected skin was crying out for a bit of TLC. I have been using the serum, followed by the Ultra-Radiance night cream each evening for about three weeks and they seem to have given my skin the nourishment and rejuvenation that it so desperately needed.
As much as I like it, I won’t be keeping the serum in my kit, however I will be recommending it to artists I work with in the future.
With a hefty £65.00 price tag this is not a purchase you make on a whim and is definitely not one I would have made myself, however now I’ve seen the effects of one jar I am loathed to give it up. Can I justify the expense in a regular basis? Probably not, but in all honesty I’m not sure how I’m going to live without it…

I utterly adore this serum and have reordered it several times, alternating between this and the Youth To The People (YTTP) Age Prevention Firm & Brightening Serum which I also really like.
The price is still a bit of a breath catching one but good news is that the serum is now available for £17.00 in an airless 5ml pump – Hurray!! If it is anything like the eye cream then this will last you a good while.
So, regardless of whether you are approaching or are well beyond your forties (you most likely won’t need this if you are under 35) then Beyond Organic Age Defying Serum is definitely worth the investment. If you don’t have £65.00 sitting around then pop it on your christmas list (I do this a lot) – it is nearly Christmas after all… or so the shops would have us believe!
P.S. On re-reading the original post, the one thing I realise failed to mention is that the Age defying Serum is VEGAN!
