Boots No7 Skin Care Reviews

Boots  No7 is an anti aging range developed by Boots – a pharmacy chain in Great Britain. Boots No7 includes numerous creams, serums, lotions and masks for both dry and oily skin types. Boots No7 Protect and Perfect, however, there is now a wide variety of skin care products in the range. The original Protect and Perfect was hailed as the next anti aging breakthrough in Great Britain and when it hit the shelves in the United States it sold out in days. But As Boots No7 sells out in days on QVC, we test Boots No7 for a month and share our unbiased analysis in this candid Boots No7 Review.

Gwyneth Paltrow says she is a user of Boots No7 skin cream. In a recent Boots No7 review, BBC reported a clinical study that showed Boots No. 7′s Protect & Perfect to be as almost as effective  as prescription products. Does Boots No7  live up to all the hype? In 2011, Multiple Boots No7 Products Receive Good Housekeeping’s First Annual Anti-Aging Awards. Boots No7 is available at Target, QVC, Ulta, Walgreens and The products are priced between $20 and $40. It can also be purchased online through Boots USA. Boots No7 has been featured in numbers other prestigious awards and has been reviewed by a bunch of influential magazines. Boots No7 has been anti aging frenzy NBC claimed the serum “was scientifically proven to repair collagen”. The primary ingredient that is known to repair collagen is oligopeptide. But is this ingredient in a high enough dosage to repair collagen? Our first reaction is that Boots No7 represents good value for money. When you compare Boots No7 to premium products, the formula is actually quite effective. The concentration of oligopeptide is reasonable for the cost of the product and we feel it represents good value for money.

Top Products 2014



  1. Michael & Steve

    My husband and I started using No.7 two weeks ago, we are in love with this stuff, It makes our skin feel so refreshed and we cant wait to see the results we may have after using this for a few weeks. Will most likely keep using because of the way it makes our skin feel even if it doesn’t remove fine lines. It gets and A+ in my book. As two gay men we have to keep our faces looking their best.

  2. Els

    Bought Protect & Perfect – within days has caused severe allergic reaction. Not happy as face looks awful. Will go back to using Caudalie as has more natural ingredients.

  3. Curly B

    I have taken care of my skin since 6th grade when my grandmother told me to never wash my face with soap again. I haven’t and I’m now 62 with no crows feet and no nose-to-mouth lines. I have used different skincare products every single day and night. I changed to Boots 7 two years ago and LOVE it! No need to change again, and I have very sensitive skin.

  4. Rebecca

    I have read many reviews of Boots No7 skin care and I was really impressed. I was overjoyed when my brother-in-law gave me a Boots no7 shine free primer. It was just what I needed. No7 Stay Perfect Shine Free Primer keeps shiny skin under control all day long, with its mattifying oil-free base. Light reflecting particles help disguise fine lines and flaws, while oil absorbing Biopol helps minimize blemishes and blot away shine without blocking pores. It contains watermelon and cucumber extracts to help soothe and cool your skin. It is formulated to be non pore blocking and it is hypo-allergenic. I was so convinced that I purchased the Boots no7 radiant glow concealer and Boots no7 beautifully matte foundation. I had a few freckles on my face. When I apply this concealer, all of them get hidden without any marks. The beautifully matte foundation gives my face a flawless appearance and looks absolutely natural.

  5. Pippin

    What a waste of money this is, does not do what its supposed to, in fact it gave me a severe allergic reaction.

    As per the stupid woman on the ad……….yes I was “like glowing” but that was due to my face burning and itching like mad. never again!!

  6. Kim Rudisel

    I have ALWAYS taken care of my skin! I am always trying different products (at least every year) I just started no7 a week ago. The restore & Protect, day and night cream. I am SO HAPPY WITH THESE PRODUCTS. I Insisted that my sister buy the products also!! I am going to buy the serum next. I REALLY WANT TO KNOW IF Paraben’s are in ANY of no7 products, before I purchase the serum?????

  7. joyce miller

    I started using two of the products as soon as I heard about it few years ago. I am allergic to everything tested for, but not this. I am seventy years old, and last month when I had to see a cardiologist for first time, he guessed my age to be fifty five. two weeks after he put stents in my heart he was still commenting on how young I looked.

    • Heart

      Exactly what products did you buy?
      I was told by someone I have too many wrinkles .I also am 70 and feel desperate to improve my skin and hopefully look younger
      I was devestated at that remark

      • Erin

        That person who told you that was probably jealous of you. When someone makes a remark like that, you can bet they envy you for something. I would bet they are also very unhappy with their own life. I’m looking into the serums. There are so many I don’t know what to choose but I am 65 and definitely fight dry skin. Oh, I also fight adult acne. Thought I would eventually leave that behind!

      • Zorro341

        I am going to begin using Boots No 7 Protect and Perfect Intense Day Cream today. I have heard great things about it! I did want to say to you, particularly, that you should not take to heart what people say. We all seem to hear the bad stuff people say to us and shrug off the good stuff. The fact that someone would even say that to you, makes me think that they have an ulterior motive! Either they are jealous, completely insensitive, or selling something. Regardless, there are always things we want to change about ourselves (personally, I have fine and thin hair, I am not happy with my weight, I am increasing in wrinkles as I am 40, etc.). I hope you can know that YOU NOT saying things like that person said to you makes you a light in a very dark place! Stay sweet, kind, and that person can just add to all the dark that already exists. I felt quite compelled to respond to your remark as I have certainly been on the receiving end of those ugly words and it does indeed hurt, but I hope you know that ultimately, God is pleased with YOU when you show love, compassion, and understanding. As for me, it helps me to know I pleased the Creator of the whole universe!! Love to you!

    I just recently purchased No 7. I been using it for 2 weeks now and my skin feels good. I’m 60 years old and all my life I’ve heard how I don’t look my age. I knew when I was younger that this was true. Now I see the aging in my face and I think I look my age. I’m trying to improve my skin and yes look younger. My husbands 12 years older than me and I don’t want to look like I’m his Mother.

  9. Kelli

    I purchased the intense serum and the day and night cream, used it once and my face broke out in small red bumps everywhere. I’ve NEVER had a reaction to any product I’ve ever used before. SO disappointed in this product and completely embarrassed to have to walk around looking like this (going on 3 days after using it one time and my face is still red and bumpy)…hopefully it clears up soon. Am definitely returning this.

  10. Lucy

    I have used No 7 for several years and have loved the products. My last eye cream purchases for my husband and myself, however, seem to be different in color. Additionally, my eyes broke out in the corners with dermatitis and I had to go to the dermatologist for treatment. Has the formulation changed in the eye creams – Protect and Perfect and the Intense version? I looked online at the UK site and saw that they have a pro-retinol in them which I don’t recall seeing before as I’m allergic to that. I welcome any comments. Thanks.

  11. Linda

    I have been using the Lift and Luminate day and night duo for about four weeks.
    I can notice that some discoloration is improving and my skin feels very soft. Does anyone know the difference between the Lift and Luminate and the Protect and Preserve lines?

  12. CindyLou

    Hi ! I have been using the Boots no.7 line now for a couple of years and I love it! It works great and I am happy ! I have used a high brand name company in the past but I find the no. 7 brand very affordable and it work ! Love Love Love it !

  13. Colorado Wildflower

    I bought the No7 Protect & Perfect Foundation last week. I hope they take it back. I had to wash my face 4 times (with quality Shiseido cleanser), then using toner in between washing my face and still the cotton balls has a large amounts of of residue of foundation on them. Just not for me (grossed me out…(

  14. Chloe

    Using the cream for dry/ sensitive skin.. Absolutely love it, before all creams were causing reactions on my face leaving red rashes and scaly skin and so I had to use more make up to cover it up, since I switched to no7 I barely have to use any foundation my skin has improved greatly! Absolutely delighted not too expensive either will be using from now on

  15. Angel

    I have dry/ scaly skin. I used many moisturizers but their effect used to last only a few hours. I needed something that would work from morning to evening. I had read the Boots no7 skin care reviews but I thought that it was just like any other brand that makes false promises. A few days back, my friend told me that she was using Boots no7 skin care products and I noticed that her skin looked very nice. I have also purchased Boots no7 skin care and it’s been a week since I started using it. I can already see a difference in my skin.

    Best products on the market! I have tried several high end lines with little results. I experienced amazing service from a Beauty Advisor in Target here in CT. She listened to everything I told her about my skin and put together a regime fit for me. I recently picked up No7 Men’s in Walgreens for a few of my friends as gifts and they absolutely love the Ultra Calm shaving cream. Highly recommended! 5 stars!

  17. Greg

    I purchased No. 7 Men. On the package it says “Reduces signs of fatigue fast”. Really? I have been using this product twice a day for a month and the bags and dark circles are still under my eyes. The fast fatigue reduction has not happened. I followed the directions and cleanse before each use. I do like the roll on aspect but otherwise it has done nothing.

    • Maureen

      Hi, My name is Maureen. I am 70 years old. It seems my whole life I have been plagued with dark circles under my eyes. I have spent tons of bucks on everything that reviews said worked, with no real difference. This week, I was at Target, had not read any reviews, but had seen one of #7 products talked about on TV, so I drafted over to check it out. Wow, there were many. I ended up picking up #7 Restore & Renew Restaure Eye Cream. This in 2 days, morning and night has not only lighten under my eyes, but the deep set line under the dark circles is almost gone.
      For me, I look like I had a eye lift and my circles were almost gone. .

  18. I use the full protect and perfect range.
    I have oily/ sensitive skin and this is the only cream I can use that doesn’t cause spots. The night cream is gorgeous and soothing and the day cream is light and after a week or so of wearing your make up glides on :D
    Skin is soft, clearer and fine lines around my eyes have reduced! My only moan is that I don’t seem to notice any difference with the night cream so I find just smoothing the serum over my undereye does the trick.
    Life saving product!!

  19. Karen

    I bought the No 7 intense day creme and intense serum and I loved it and thought right on this is for me, but 3 days later I broke out with bad hives on my neck and my face. This has never happened to me before.

  20. Diane

    I haven’t worn make up in years. My skin reacts badly and halfway through the day it looks terrible. The gal at Walgreen’s recommended Boots and told me right off that I could return it if I didn’t like it. I am thrilled. I can wear make up again and it looks good all day long. I love the way my skin feels and I get compliments. Will never, ever use another product except Boots.

  21. Anonymous

    Tried the Boots No 7 intense advanced serum. Within a few days, my face had reacted to it, swollen and red . It is the only new product I have introduced to my regime and I have only ever had this happen with one other mousturiser. Not all it’s cracked up to be !

  22. Nikki

    I have been using Boots no7 skin care products for a long time now. People are amazed when they find out how old I am. Boots no7 skin care has made my skin look soooo much better. I just love it. Boots no7 skin care reviews show that it is one of the most popular skin care brands, not only in Britain, but also in America. The price is also very reasonable and doesn’t pinch the pocket. Combo packs of many products are also available and that’s even more economical!

  23. Maria


    I am trying to find the Protect and perfect intensive beauty serum, in Norway and Sweden. I just find Protect and perfect intensive serum. Is it the same product? And work in the same way? Maria

  24. smartin

    please help. would this product be good for me if my DR. is putting me on a med. that will block the estrogen in my body due to breast ca. I know estrogen keeps your skin looking younger. what can I do when I start getting dry skin and wrinkles being off the hormone replacement therapy. I need a rush answer as I am getting ready to take the estrogen zapper. I am over 60 but less than 65. thank you

  25. dotty

    Ordered a swag of beauty products (well at least 3 which is a lot for me..) from Amazon after reading about anti-aging products in Good Houskeeping, including Boots no 7 Lift and Luminate Night Cream. The first couple of times I used it my face did get a bit blotchy. But I came back to it a few months later and am completely sold. My skin is looking great and I definitely see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Have been using it every night for about a month and have had no problems as with first use. I love it and would love to try other products in the range but no one here in Oz seems to stock them. I’m 52 and like anything that turns back the clock!

    • Amy

      Hi Dotty. I have never commented on any website before, but your comments have inspired me to share what has happened with me. I’ll be 52 in a couple of days, August 16. I have been using the Boots no 7 Lift and Luminate line for about 10 weeks now and really like it as well. Prior to that I had not used anything at all. I looked terrible but was so busy with my job that I just didn’t have time to do anything about it or to even really think about it. I also had doubts that there was anything that would make a difference (short of a face lift which was not an option for me). My main issue was that I had lots of sagging skin on my face and neck. I had jowls, turkey neck, no jawline, droopy eyes and my lips were droopy/thin line. My skin looked unhealthy as well and makeup did nothing to hide it. So… what I did was avoid mirrors. Well, my daughter got engaged and her wedding will be in May 2015. Over the summer break (I’m a math teacher) it started to dawn on me that there would be lots of pictures, so I started to panic. I looked at all of the procedures that could be done, but too expensive. After hours and hours of internet research I decided to try the Boots no 7 line. It was within my budget and there was a new Ulta store that just opened that was 5 minutes from my house. The other thing that I decided to do was to try facial exercises because, like I mentioned above, my big problem was sagging skin. To my surprise the combination of the Boots no 7 and the facial exercises has really worked. I’ve been using the Boots no 7 for ten weeks and have been doing the facial exercises for 7 weeks (the facial exercise program that I selected goes for 12 weeks and then you just do maintenance after that). My husband, daughter and twin sister, after laughing at me at first, have now admitted that it is really working. My twin sister said that I now look 10 years younger her. I know that I still have a ways to go but I’m hoping that by the time of the wedding that I feel like at least I’ve done all I can do to look my best. Thank you dotty!

    Boots no7 skin care is one of the most trusted brands of anti aging products. Boots no7 skin care products have been used by several women in Great Britain and the United States of America. It has a wide range of products to choose from. It provides complete skin care solutions. Many happy customers have given boots no7 skin care reviews and stated that they have never used a better product. Many men have also used skin care products from boots and even they found it very effective. Users see the changes in a short while and their skin gets the required moisture.

  27. Donna

    I’ve been using Boots 7 Protect & Perfect for about 5 weeks every morning. I can’t see any visable signs of change other than softness to my skin.

    • Michele

      Hi Donna,

      I would love for you to check out my website and view the testimonial videos on our product. It has a 30 day money back and we ENCOURAGE before & after pictures so we are confident you will see results! Reach out to me thru my website (skinrevelation dot com) with any questions you may have! :)

    • LInda

      I don’t think that it is. I have been using it for about a month and my face has started to break out randomly. Not much, just a pimple or whitehead here and there. But any breakout is too much. I have noticed a slight difference in firmness, but not enough to put up with the pimples

      • Anonymous

        In the protect and perfect advanced it has salacylic acid in there which helps to clear up any blemishes by fighting the bacteria that causes spot

  28. Shari

    I have been using this product for years and I love it. The best product for the price. I love the way my skin feels and looks. I use the protect and perfect line and love it!! One complaint.. here in Canada its extremely rare to find a combo pack of products. I bought one , once. I would like to see more combo packs with a great price, like the more you buy the better the price.

  29. Olivia

    Sara is probably right in thinking that you might be allergic to something in your Lift and Luminate cream.
    All Boots No. 7 products are hypo-allergenic, meaning that any ingredients known to cause an allergic reaction have been removed.
    However, everyone’s skin is different, and your skin may be sensitive to particular ingredients in the formula. Also, as you use soap and water to clean your skin, the rich ingredients in the cream that hydrate and protect the skin (and serve the function of anti-ageing) may have been too much for your skin!
    I would advise you to start by using the Soft and Soothed Gentle Cleanser by No 7 to clean the skin, followed by the Beautiful Skin Day Cream (moisturiser) to hydrate and protect. These are the basics available in the range, to kick start your skincare routine gently, before you add in anti-ageing. The cleanser also is a creamy consistency that dissolves dirt and grime but leaves your skin soft and gentle.
    I live in the UK, so I hope these products are available to you (if you’re in the US)!
    Boots in the UK has very high customer service standards, and Walgreens (their partnering company in the US) should be the same. So if you require a refund, they should do their best to make sure they get it!
    …and, it might be worth noting that your Lift and Luminate will last for up to 24 months once opened, so don’t throw it away just yet if you think you could get some use out of it.
    Hope this helps,
    Livvy xx

    I’m 53 years old and purchased the day & night lift and luminate serums do to the ads on TV.
    This is the best product I have found in years. After 1 week age spots on my face are disappearing and the small lines are going away also. The age spots were my biggest problems since I work outside in the garden so much. I would recommend this to all men and women

  31. Jean Moore

    I bought a jar of lift and laminate night cream yesterday..I have never used anything on my face except soap and water(any kind)I am 80yrs old.about an hour after I applied it my face started to feel itch and tight .A little while later I started to develope har little welts on my chin and around my nose.this morning I have dry scaleyareas on my face and my welts on my chin are actually draining tiny bits of water from them .Does that mean I should go back to the store and get a refund

    I am curious what type of result you saw from using Boots No 7… Did it work on wrinkles in less than a week? What about age spots and other pigmentation ? I am wondering if the product was actually covering up the imperfections or was it actually treatment them?

  33. Anonymous

    i have been using Boots No 7 Serum and have not found any other product that works this well.
    i am really pleased with results, it promises younger skin in 4 weeks, but i saw improvements after less than 1 week.
    will buy more from this line.

  34. Gigi Koslow

    I am 62 years old and also am an esthetician. I have used the intense serum and I love it. I also tried a sample of the Boots No. 7 lifting day cream and was very happy with that. I will buy that next. I have always taken care of my skin since I was 17 and look much younger than my age because of that and heredity. I will say that after using the intense serum and moisturizer I have gotten a number of compliments on my skin.

  35. denise thomson

    I am so absolutely thrilled with the serum
    I’ve never looked healthier
    And prettier then in my youth
    Highest recommend
    Won’t go without it .
    Thank you so much
    Regards Denise

  36. Ben

    Im a male and I use Boots 7 Protect & Perfect Protection and give it a 5 star ranking. I choose this product because it gets good reviews. This is the only face product I have used and I am pleased with the results thus far.

  37. love love love…Boots no 7 protect and perfect has worked so well for me…unlike any other skin care regiment that i have ever had. in fact, i liked their skin care line so much, i decided to give so of their cosmetic line a try. photo fix primer is the abosulte best primer that i have ever used, and i will never use any other foundation after wearing their matte foundation. perfect…and the compliments just keep pouring in.

  38. Ingrid

    I saw Boots 7 Wrinkle Cream on the television last year but could not find it anywhere in Atlanta. Yesterday I saw it in my drug store and was going to buy it but there were many products in the range and nobody could help me. This is why I am here to ask what the best product in the range is for women with wrinkles around the lips?

  39. Celina

    I used Boots No 7 wrinkle cream, and I liked it. I have been using it for the last 5 months and I can see some minor improvement in my skin tone. It smells pleasant and absorbs nicely. No oily residue. I hate product that leave an oily texture behind. I much prefer having a matt look.

  40. Emily

    I tried boots no 7 protect and perfects.
    Boots is a genius marketer but their products are crap.
    Very disappointed. At least the price wasn’t overly expensive.

  41. Helen

    I am in my 50′s and have been using Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum since it was first launched in the US. I really like this product and it has really given me more even toned skin. I use it on my face, hands and chest at night. Thanks Boots for developing a great!

  42. Pamela

    I am 24 and and have some fine lines and wrinkles but look like any other 24 year old girl. Boots no 7 took it from nice to fantastic! And the price is okay so I can continue to use it.

  43. I love Boots NO7

    When I use Boots No 7 my skin feels very hydrated and without it I am itchy. Especially when I come out of the shower. My husband would always tell me my face looks dry and to drink some water but ever since I started the Boots moisturizer he has not said such a stupid thing once.

    you can almost hear my skin go Ahhhhh!

  44. Vivian

    Daytime I use Boots No7 Lift & Luminate Day Cream
    Nighttime I use Boots No7 Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Serum followed by Beautiful Skin Dry Skin Rescue.
    Boots No7 Lift & Luminate Skincare System is a good value for money kit but I have not tried it yet.

  45. Elen

    Boots No 7 has been my secret for years because I lived in the UK for two years. I was buying the products online from Amazon so I was happy to see that I could now buy this wonder cream in the US. It is not much cheaper in the UK, they are charging pounds and the pound is higher than our dollar.

  46. Ursula

    What is the best online store to buy Boots No 7? I heard the bbc report and it looks scientific so I am going to give it a try. I am just upset the product is much cheaper in the UK.
