As a beauty blogger I know that I am very fortunate to get to try a large selection of products, which does mean that I swap and change a lot - but whenever I am not testing anything, there are certain products that I always revert to. And so, one of my favourite foundations is without a doubt the Thalgo Silicium Anti-Ageing Foundation as it is simply so perfect for my mature combination skin, or for more casual days, the Thalgo BB Cram (you can read more about them here) - but hence when the Thalgo Silicium Concentrate Intensive Restructuring Cellular Booster landed on my desk, I naturally got very excited and couldn't wait to put it to the test. 

The Thalgo Silicium Concentrate Intensive Restructuring Cellular Booster (phew, what a name to remember!!) is an intensely re-sculpting, this highly concentrated serum that is to be used as a one month intensive treatment prior to moisturiser, morning and/or evening, which can be repeated several times throughout the year. It is aimed at those with mature skin 40+ looking for anti-ageing treatments. It promises to among others;
  • Hydrate the skin 
  • Redensifies the skin 
  • Protects hyaluronic acid production 
  • Restructures the skin 
  • Redefines facial contours 
  • Fight against visible wrinkles and skin slackening and loss of firmness to eyelids, facial contours and neck 

With my combination skin prone to breakouts, I am always a little concerned when I try new anti-ageing products, as they are often very rich, and often quickly make my skin congested and breakout. Not easy being in the age bracket where anti-ageing is needed, but your skin acts like a teenager's!

But I didn't need to worry. This concentrate is extremely light and non-greasy, and has not made my skin feel or look greasier, or caused any breakouts. It absorbs immediately into the skin, and leaves it so incredibly soft and with a velvety smooth finish, while clearly it is adding intense hydration to the skin.

And after just a few days of using morning and evening, I started to see results, which only got better and better each day. My skin not only enjoyed the intense hydration and looked so much softer and smoother, but also more relaxed and rested, but more importantly more plump, to the point that fine lines, especially those around my eyes, and that annoying frown line between my brows, have clearly minimised in size. I am not sure if my skin and facial contours are lifted and redefined as claimed, but as such, my skin is, thankfully, not really sagging yet either, but given the other results I have seen, I am convinced that a few more treatment rounds will see some results there too.

I am also loving the fact that it leaves my skin feeling so velvety soft, and that it also works so perfectly under makeup during the day, and actually, I feel that it makes my makeup look more flawless too.

I also love that it is completely free from all the chemical nasties such as parabens, mineral oils, GMO and propylen glycol.

The serum is not cheap, but it is seriously concentrated stuff, and I am expecting that there will be sufficient concentrate in the bottle for approx three rounds of treatment, ie. three months. And given the results of this, I find that it is well worth it if you're looking do something extra for your skin, perhaps in the lead up a special event such as a wedding.
