freeze 247 review
It has been a long time coming (I first heard of these products in Paris Hilton’s heyday) but I have finally trialled and tested a few products from Freeze 24-7. Their tagline – “Instant Gratification” – is no joke.

In my opinion, their first hero product is the Instant Targeted Wrinkle Treatment. I’m still in my twenties, therefore a hard sell for a wrinkle treatment, and have been using this tub religiously for weeks. Freeze’s dermatologically-tested Age-Less Technology™ promises to diminish the appearance of forehead creases, droopy brows, crow’s feet, furrows, laugh lines, feathered lips, and more. With just a few taps of this cream, test subjects have experienced a 50-90% reduction in fine lines and wrinkles within minutes of application.

I may have no wrinkles to pull an invisibility coat over, but this cream dramatically lifts and smooths the look of my skin in addition to calming my mild rosacea. The results last all day and make this product one of the most effective alternatives to botox I have come across.

Hero product number two? The Skin Glace Daily Detoxifying Cleanser and Mask. As the photos show, this is a self-foaming cleanser. I applied a 24-hour lipstick (“Le”) and a long-lasting lipliner (“la”) on my hand to demonstrate just how effective this product is. The formula contains a proprietary complex of bio-transformed rice bran and hydrolyzed soy protein for deep cleansing, maximum skin purification, detoxification and hydration – all with no rubbing, tugging, or skin irritation.

You first apply the cleanser in a gel form. Within one minute the gel will oxidise, foam, and begin to dissolve impurities (including make-up and clogged pores). With a light sweep of a tissue, the cleanser was removed to reveal that it had completely dissolved the “la” and turned the 24 hour “Le” into a 24 second formula. These are normally products that require a double cleanse and a lot of harsh scrubbing to remove, yet the ‘Glace’ barely settled on them, erased them, and left my skin incredibly soft and moisturised. Being hypoallergenic, non-sensitizing, non-irritating, and allergy tested, it also doubles as a fantastic shaving foam. A must-have.

I have come across a new pill with big promises, ladies and gentleladies. Meet Colladeen Visage – a supplement that promises to reduce wrinkles, improve elasticity and even provide an internal SPF of 10 (yes, by swallowing a pill).

Now, I am pretty strict with my skincare regime, so I’m not going to claim this is a miracle ‘after’ photo you’re seeing. The photo above is a hi-res snap of my face after washing it. (Excuse the leftover flakey mascara and yellow tint from my ceiling light, I wanted it to be completely unedited). I may not have been covered in wrinkles or blemishes beforehand, but before I started taking Colladeen Visage, my rosacea-pronce face never looked this calm, smooth, and bright post-wash.

So, on the surface, it is anti-ageing and SPF in a pill. When I dug a little deeper, I realised it was doing a lot more. Containing only plant-sourced ingredients, Super Skinheroes like anthocyanadins and carotenoid lutein (the properties that protect plants from sun damage) work overtime, even helping to reduce water retention and spider veins.

At only £18.95 for 60 tablets (which will last you a month), this one is added to my monthly must-haves.
