If you read my post on why you need Vitamin C products in your skincare regime, you will know that I am a huge fan of Image skincare. They recently added some new products to their range and I was delighted to be able to choose some to try. Prepare for a swoonfest because these products are beautiful!

Ageless Total Pure Hyaluronic Filler: We all know the amazing benefits of Hyaluronic Acid, particularly for dry or ageing skin, and if you have tried any products containing this acid, you will have seen what it can do for your skin. This Image product, however, contains six forms of hyaluronic acid so it really is a supercharged product that gives instant, visible results. The texture of this serum is very silky - almost watery but with a slippy feel. It absorbs instantly, doesn't feel at all sticky and layers well with other products. I could see results from first use - fine lines were plumped, particularly the nasolabial fold and on my forehead and overall my skin just looked more youthful. I brought it on holiday with me as I find days in the sun really put my skincare products to the test (I am always well protected with SPF 30) and since returning home, we have had a heatwave but my face isn't showing any of the telltale signs that usually accompany high temperatures. Even first thing in the morning, my skin is soft to touch, which when you have Sahara-like levels of dryness, is not easy to achieve. This serum really lives up to the 'filler' in its name such is the plumping effect! It is definitely my favourite skincare discovery so far this year and I would highly recommend it to anybody who is starting to see the first signs of ageing up to those who have deep wrinkles. I'm going to buy one for my mother and get the opinion of someone in their 60s - I bet she will rave about it too!

Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque: Also from the Ageless range, is this mask. Because I have dry skin, it is naturally dull so anything that promises to exfoliate and renew the skin will always grab my attention! This mask combines chemical exfoliation in the form of AHAs with some physical exfoliant, however it isn't at all harsh on the skin. After cleansing my face, I apply a layer of the mask and then leave it to work for around 20 minutes - the directions say between 5 and 30 minutes so if your skin is quite sensitive or new to AHAs, it would be best to start with 5 minutes. It tingles ever so slightly on the skin but it isn't at all uncomfortable. After 20 minutes, I wet my hands and massage the residue into my skin before rinsing and then splashing my face with cold water. The result is radiant, soft skin with refined pores and less texture overall. It is definitely a quick fix solution and has made its way into my weekly skincare routine. I like to follow this with the next mask for the ultimate pamper.

Vital C Hydrating Overnight Masque: I love overnight masks because there is nothing else on the skin for the product to compete with and it can really get to work. This mask has a gel texture and a citrus scent (but it isn't overpowering or artificial). I like to apply a thick layer on my skin (it isn't sticky) after rinsing off the previous mask (it can obviously be used as a standalone mask after your regular skincare either). It instantly makes my skin feel soothed and comfortable and the next morning, my skin looks clear, even and radiant. Vitamin C is a must have ingredient for anyone with dull skin but this mask also hydrates and smooths the skin thanks to the blue-green algae that it contains, which is a natural retinoid alternative. All skin types would love this mask!

All three of these products are now regulars in my routine and they have definitely made me want to explore the brand further, particularly the Ageless range as it's not that often that products will give immediate results!

Have you tried any Image skincare products? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
