Real Beauty Awards testers reveal anti-ageing cream is “confidence in a jar!”

Looking for an incredible new skincare product? The Real Beauty Awards tester reviews could point you in the right direction.

It’s the holy grail of skincare – a daily face moisturiser that leaves skin feeling nourished, and knocks the years off.

That’s what Real Beauty were hoping their testers were going to discover in the Real Beauty Awards 2021. And they really did.

Testers were sent the most exciting new anti-ageing face creams to trial for a month. It’s purely their 100% honest, independent feedback that decides which products won a Real Beauty Awards.

There are some outstanding products this year, at different price points. All winning face creams were gorgeous to use, with seriously impressive results, including banishing fine lines, reducing wrinkles, boosting radiance and evening out skin tone.

You can join the Real Beauty club here and try out new products- you could be one of the lucky ones to get these huge brand names and become a part of the real women team!

Premium day creams (£40+)

WINNER: bareMinerals AGELESS Phyto-Retinol Face Cream, £52 (currently on offer at Look Fantastic here )

Not just a wrinkle cream, this had so many extra anti-ageing benefits, from reducing pigmentation to giving a serious glow boost.

TESTER SAYS: “My skin felt amazingly soft and hydrated only with a couple of uses, but after a few weeks I noticed my face looked more radiant. I have pigmentation that did feel more evened out. I got a few comments from friends about how my skin was glowing and looked amazing. I’ve not looked up the price yet, but regardless I’m definitely going to purchase it.”

WINNER: Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Bright Power Soft Creme, £75 (Currently on offer at Look Fantastic here )

Glowing, healthier, younger, bouncier skin – the testers couldn't have loved this product anymore with some incredible results noted.

TESTER SAYS: “Absorbed beautifully and my skin felt radiant. Lines/wrinkles much less visible. My skin felt plumper, particularly around the eye area. I have been able to have days without using foundation as my skin lost the dull, lacklustre look.”

HIGHLY COMMENDED: L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream, £79 here

The Real Beauty testers loved using this incredibly luxurious moisturiser, and most reported good anti-ageing results too.

TESTER SAYS: “I love the immediate results: my skin feels calmed, refreshed and moisturised. I noticed that some of the fine lines around my eyes are completely smoothed and some have even disappeared. I would definitely buy this.”

Mass market day cream (under £40)

WINNER: PRAI X M&S MenoGlow Collagen Boosting CremeGel Moisturiser, £25 here

Part of a new range specifically aimed at women going through the menopause, the testers were very impressed.

TESTER SAYS: “It has made such a difference in my face, and in turn given me confidence too. The fine lines around my eyes appear to be softer and my husband noticed too. Lots of people said my skin looked glowing and asked what I was using.”

WINNER: Honest Beauty Hydrogel Cream, £25 here

A great moisturiser with excellent anti-ageing results too. Testers said this cream was so good, it made them feel more confident.

TESTER SAYS: “Made a massive difference to lines and wrinkles. I was super-happy to try this brand. My skin looks amazing after using it. I’m really happy with the results.”

HIGHLY COMMENDED: Dr. Craft Bio-Bakuchiol Face Cream, £32 here

Most testers saw a good anti-wrinkle result with this moisturiser, which uses a plant-based alternative to retinol.

TESTER SAYS: “It’s made a huge difference. I have used this morning and evening for over 4 weeks. I did notice fine lines looked reduced and skin overall looked more youthful. My skin looked smoothed out.”
