Dr Feldblum Eye Serum

Hello beauties,

Today I have a brilliant eye serum from Dr Feldblum, who created his multi Peptide serum in an Insraeli lab. Finding out that Collagen isn’t easily absorbed by the skin, he turned to peptides to reduce puffiness, dark circles and lines.

Eye Serum is extremely hydrating, you only need a tiny amount for each eye, I have found that it really is brilliant at helping reducing the look of my lines under my eyes which is a bugbear of mine. It comes in a 20ml tube, which lasts forever! If you go direct to Dr Feldblum it is £32.00 however I bought mine for £6.99 from eBay. The moisturiser is next on my list, if it’s as good as the eye serum it will be a winner!

Till next time,

Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Hyaluronic Acid Lotion

Hi beauties,

I was recommended to try this by my instafriend Dedez_beautynstuff last year and before Christmas I placed an order.

Hada Labo is a great Hyaluronic Serum, I found it really effective, especially around my eyes. It filled up my lines and was lovely and hydrating. A few drops is all you need, I’ve used it under my moisturiser and mixed with an oil and it works well in both ways.

This is a fabulous product, this and Liz Earle Superskin moisturiser literally kept my skin in good condition in the first days after Andy passed. I didn’t feel like doing much skincare, it was a case of a quick cleanse and layering a small amount underneath Superskin.

I want to talk about the value here too, I paid £10.99 for 170ml bottle from Amazon and you can also buy eco-refills for round about the same price. Hada Labo Premium Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Lotion will be a definite repurchase, and I would also recommend this for anyone who wants a good quality Hyaluronic serum for a good price.

Till next time,

Beauty Pie Box 1

Hi beauties

I recently subscribed to Beauty Pie, a friend of mine Kassie (@kassie157 on Instagram) sent me some makeup at Christmas. I recently tried the mascara and lipstick she sent, I was so impressed that I signed up and got some skincare.

My choices were:

  • Double-Phase Daily Deep Rinse-Off Cleanser
  • Super Retinol Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream
  • Matte Retouch Pore-Minimizing Primer
  • Über Youth Super Serum

Since I have ordered, my skin has thrown a complete fit so I’m on a pared back routine but I will be testing as soon as I can and reviewing here. I signed up for 3 months at £10.00 per month, that gives me a spending allowance of £100. At the time of ordering there was an offer which gave me a shopping allowance of £200.

Next month, I want to try some more makeup, there are some gorgeous nail polish colours I want to try as well as some foundation.

If you want to see what all the fuss is about, go to http://www.beautypie.com and take a look.

Skin Pep Hydra Boost Pure Hyaluronic Serum

Hi beauties

I’ve got a great product today, the Skin Pep Hydra Boost Pure Hyaluronic Serum. Skin Pep is a cosmeceutical brand that I found on both eBay and Amazon. I originally discovered their Retinol serum and liked it, so I wanted to try more from the range.

This Hyaluronic Serum is a lovely texture, light and sinks in quickly.  It isn’t sticky like some can be and can be layered with other serums and oils. It’s one of those that plays well with others and does not pill or break up.

Hydra Boost does exactly what it says on the tube, it gives you a boost of hydration with no oiliness or sticky residue. A little goes a long way, if you used this day and night I think you would get a month to six weeks use out of the 30ml tube.

Also ridiculously affordable at £5.99 for 30ml, the largest tube is £12.49 for 70ml which is also great value. Available from Amazon and eBay.

December Latest in Beauty Box

Hi beauties

It’s LIB time!! Yay…!! Love taking the time to pick my choices and the anticipation of them arriving, very exciting stuff. Yes, I really ought to get out more. So this months choices are:

  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel In Jingle Red Rock
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel In Sleigh All Day
  • Simple Hydrating Booster
  • Bee Good Plump & Firm Moisturiser
  • Collection Speedy Blush In Pinch Me
  • Espa Overnight Hydration Therapy

Heavy on hydration this month but it can’t hurt. For the first time in my life I’m struggling with dryness which I’m finding really bad. The texture of my skin isn’t great either but I’m trying not to go mental and do too much too it.

Anyhoo, I have the 6 product box subscription that costs £15.00 per month, and I think you can easily see the value here. The list of choices on the Latest in Beauty is huge and is updated regularly so as much as I was gutted it was originally changed from You Beauty, I’m keeping this subscription, I’m really pleased with it. Go to http://www.latestinbeauty.com to find out more.

Latest in Beauty September

Hello beauties,

As you may know the You Beauty Box is no more *sob sob*, instead they have teamed up with Latest in Beauty to offer a beauty subscription service, typically its more expensive! So if you want to subscribe, here are the options:

  • Beauty Novice – choose three products from the long list for £9.00 per month
  • Beauty Enthusiast – choose six products for £15.00 per month
  • Beauty Guru – choose nine products for £18.00 per month

Delivery is included and you get a free makeup bag with your first month. I was lucky to have a code from You Beauty to get the special offer gift for You subscribers, this entitled me to a full size Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol Treatment.

If you don’t want to subscribe monthly, you can build a one off box for the following cost:

  • Beauty Novice – choose three products for £16.00 plus delivery
  • Beauty Enthusiast – choose six products for £22.00 plus delivery
  • Beauty Guru – choose nine products for £25.00 plus delivery

The list of products is longer on LIB, so the choice is massive. I prefer to choose my boxes because I don’t want to be stuck with things I know I wouldn’t/don’t want to try. Popbands were in a box I tried which is no good for me as I have short hair so they were given away to my best friend and her daughter.

For my first box I chose:

  • Andalou Naturals Instant Brighten and Tighten Hydro Face Mask
  • Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce Body Booster Mousse
  • Nourish Skin Renew Cleanser
  • Green People Instant Definition Lip Crayon in Sangria
  • Origins Plantscription Anti Aging Facial Serum
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Rudolph Red

I am going to try LIB for a few months to see how I get on, my gut feeling is that I will more than likely keep the subscription up.

Jane Scrivner Bioluronic Buzz 2000*

Hello beauties

I have a very special product today, and it’s very new! In fact it only launched a couple of weeks ago, I was extremely lucky to have been sent one to try. I introduce: Jane Scrivner Bioluronic Buzz 2000.

Bioluronic Buzz 2000 is Jane’s smoothing and hydrating hyaluronic gel. The Buzz refers to the inclusion of Spilanthes Acmella Extract. This particular ingredient is know as the Buzz Button which applied topically reduces muscle tension, smoothing out lines and inhibiting facial contractions, a safer alternative to Botox.

The 2000 refers to the amount of hyaluronic Gel, 2000mg of hyaluronic in every 135g bottle. It also includes White Willow Bark (Salicylic Acid) to gently smooth the skins surface with toning and Rejuvenating Frankincense Oil.

The texture of this gel is quite viscous, you really don’t need a lot, I’m talking pin head amounts as it spreads so easily and quickly over the skin. It makes a fantastic smoothing and hydrating serum, I’ve used it under my sunscreen and it works perfectly. For me I prefer it over oil, it works better for me that way but experiment and try it with your other products.

Bioluronic Buzz 2000 is a gorgeous product, my skin is definitely smoother and I love to use it as a serum underneath my eye product, it helps to fill out the lines . The price is £59.00 for a 135g bottle which is great value, it’s equates to £13 for 30ml and it can be difficult to find this kind of quality for that price. I think this would easily last 6 months with daily use you need to use that little. The size of a 10p piece does my whole face and I use another 10p size for neck and chest (I take it right down to the cleavage.)

I would like to say a huge thank you to Jane for sending me a bottle to try, it has been very exciting testing this new addition to the range! Bioluronic Buzz certainly does NOT disappoint.

Till next time,
