Freeze 24.7 Instant Wrinkle Treatment Review - The alternative to Botox?

Hello Beauties

I hope you're all having a wonderful Saturday!

Today we talk Wrinkles!

We all want to look our best and feel good about ourselves whatever our age, but more and more we are surrounded by images of perfect women and men who are not natural, but surgically enhanced and while I have nothing against this, (I actually think that for many they look great on it) It does sometimes make some people feel inadequate or under pressure to do the same.

My mum for instance has been contemplating Botox for a few years now as she hates her crows feet around her eyes, but in her words is one of life's worriers.  After much deliberation she decided she was going to take the plunge and booked in for her first session. However the night before she researched online about the possible side effect of using Botox and whilst only very very small, decided that this was not for her.

This got me thinking, there must be a product out there that actually can work in the fight against wrinkles, that isn't invasive, doesn't cost the earth and more importantly, ACTUALLY works!

Freeze 24-7 claims to reduce wrinkles by a whopping 50-90% after 10 minutes, so I put it to the test. A 10ml pot of cream cost £36 on beautybay.com or £40 from debenhams online. Which is reasonable if it lives up to its claims....

The product arrived in the post two days later beautifully packaged, and I was super excited to give it a go! I dragged my mum round kicking and screaming.... Not! and gave it a whirl!! We had very high expectations given the claims it made and it didn't disappoint.

On application wrinkles did seem to almost fade away before your very eyes, however the excitement was unfortunately  short lived.

Whilst it DOES do as it claims, it works almost like a super primer smoothing and almost "filling in" the fine lines....but as soon as you apply moisturiser or make up over the top ( as you are supposed to) it undoes some of the good wrinkle banishing it originally achieved. If you DONT moisturise over the top it turns crusty ( which is definitely, not a good look).

I have to say lines do still look reduced and would work great for a little night out, or for a special photo opportunity but it certainly isn't going to give you the wrinkle free finish we had hoped for.

In short boys and girls we haven't found our wrinkle cure, but it's a pretty good, non invasive start, I will keep searching for the ultimate wrinkle fighter, that I'm sure is out there somewhere!

I love... Cosmetics Review

Boys and Girls!

If you're looking a delicious body pick me up, look no further!

Let me introduce, I love... a bath, body and beauty brand.

All of the products within the range are fun, sensuous, and incredibly delicious!

The brand was created by a gentleman called James Brown, a product designer and frangrance marketer - back in 2008 James had an idea; he wanted to create the greatest smelling, bath, body and beauty brand in the world.

James said:
My ambition was to create a catalogue of amazing fragrances all motivated by happy times with family. Everything from my first memories of holidays on the beach and Vanilla Ice Cream Cones, to my Grandma’s home-made Coconut biscuits, to freshly squeezing Lemonade in the summer with my sister and mother, to my first McDonald’s experience in the 80’s and the delights for a child of Strawberry Milkshake!
My aim was to capture the essence of these memories, flavours and experiences, recreate the scent and bottle them for everyone to enjoy and fall in love with.
Naturally, I called my brand I Love and this is where our story began.

I was very lucky and managed to get my hands on the new Limited Edition 'Peachy Passionfruit' range (Coming soon!) and let me tell you... It's worth the wait!



Peachy Passionfruit Bath & Shower Crème £2.99
The second this hits your skin you'll enter a world of peace and pure tranquillity! The Bath, bubble and Shower Cremes include a unique skin softening vitamin complex to help moisturise and keep skin soft and supple. All of the product range is Soap and Paraben Free!

Peachy Passionfruit Body Butter £2.99
You literally feel as though you are smothering your body in icing sugar, so naughty yet so nice!
Guaranteed to make you feel silky smooth, and leave you feeling and smelling fabulous all day long!

Coconut & Cream Super Soft Hand Lotion £2.99
Again, another gorgeous fragrance - it takes me back to the beach everytime! This hand cream will leave your hands feeling just wonderful!

I love... is an affordable treat, bound to add excitement to bath/shower time. I cant get over how cheap these products are, they could put these into Selfridges for £20.00 a pop and they would STILL sell like hot cakes!

You can find these babies almost everywhere, they are stocked in Superdrug, Boots, Matalan, Argos, Sally Salons, Express Gifts, Bath and Body Shop, and Factory Shop! Not only are they stocked in the UK, they are all of the world! For a full list of stockists click here .

Don't delay, make bath time even more special today!

Lots of love and big hugs

Jakey xx
