Champneys Age Excellence collection of skincare products is described 'as a luxury high performance skincare range which has been developed to address the needs of mature skin, formulated to intensively lift, firm and illuminate skin, restoring its youthful glow.'
I actually received the products pictured above as part of a bag given to me at a Boots Summer event, I put them to one side as I didn't think my skin was mature yet.. but as my night cream had run out, I dug these out and started to use them.

Champneys Age Excellence Ultimate Radiance Day Cream SPF 15
Claims - To reduce the appearance of fine lines, brighten dark spots and lift and rejuvenate the skin
The scent of this is not dissimilar to the Champneys Oriental Opulence Bubble Heaven but although it is scented it is not overpowering , I found it to be light and fluid in texture and absorbed nicely into my skin.My skin felt soft after application.
Champneys Age Excellence Ultimate Repair Night Cream
Claims - To reduce the appearance of fine lines, brighten skin on waking and lift and rejuvenate the skin
I found the night cream to be rich and very thick in texture. It was heavily scented with the same scent as the Day Cream.
Unfortunately I used them for 4 days before deciding to stop using them. They were far too rich for my skin and were giving me spots on my cheeks, which I don't usually suffer from. However, this wasn't really the fault of the products, they are not designed for my age group, mature skin being defined as over 40. I found this out having checked the Champneys website, I didn't actually know this before I started using the products. It would seem that in my enthusiasm for keeping ageing at bay, I found myself using products that were not suitable for my skin or age. Lesson learned.
