Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet

Hi beauties

I have Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet for you today. I’ve had this for a while, it was a Latest in Beauty Pick and as I’m a big fan of The Vinoperfect Radiance Serum I wanted to try more from Caudalie.

Moisturising Sorbet is a very light gel cream so it gets absorbed very quickly. Great to layer with serums and oils, this plays well with others with none of the dreaded roll off. It is good for my skin type, I’m not sure it would be enough for drier skins, it is extremely light.

It’s a very nice moisturiser, I did enjoy using it but not enough to buy a full size as it’s price puts me off. It’s £23.00 for 40ml which I feel is very expensive for what it is. For me there are more favourable moisturisers, Liz Earle Skin Repair (£21.00 for 50ml) for example or Green Keratin Re-balancing Ultra Combo Cream (£14.95 for 50ml). I find those two are much better value.

Till next time,

Bee Good Youth Enhancing Plump and Firm Moisturiser

Hello beauties,

Today I’ve got a product from British Skincare brand Bee Good. Bee Good are based in rural Hampshire creating products that are made using beeswax, honey and propolis.

The brand was created by husband and wife team Simon and Caroline. Simon is a beekeeper and passionate about beekeeping in Britain. Caroline was interested in using the excess honey and beeswax to create natural skincare for people of all ages, the brand has grown that the company now uses bee products from other British beekeepers.

I chose Youth Enhancing Plump and Firm Moisturiser from the choices from Latest in Beauty. Bee Good have been on my radar for a while so I wanted to give them a try.

Youth Enhancing Plump and Firm Moisturiser contains beeswax, honey and propolis along with raspberry seed oil, black currant seed oil, hyaluronic acid and a Firming and lifting ingredient called Peha-tight.

I love this moisturiser, it’s really beautiful. Perfect for my oily skin type, not too thick and it sinks in very easily. It also smells gorgeous, a lovely fresh scent that’s suitable for blokes as well as us gals. I find I don’t notice much firming, but it definitely does make your skin plump, soft and smooth.

Plump and Firm Moisturiser is £23.50 for 50ml, which I will say is a bit more than I would usually spend on a moisturiser. However, this is Bee Good’s most expensive moisturiser in their Youth Enhancing range, their non anti ageing Honey and Flax Seed Moisturiser is £14.50 so I do think it is good value for money. There is also a travel size at 15ml for £9.00. You can buy online from http://www.beegood.co.uk.

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!

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.

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.

Derma E Even Tone Brightening Cleanser

Hi beauties,

I gave a great cleanser from Derma E to tell you about today, that was very kindly sent to me by my friend Dede (dedez_beautynstuff on instagram) after she learned I had wanted to try the brand for a while.

Even Tone Brightening Cleanser a pH balanced cleanser with Niacinamide, Panthenol, Glycolic Acid, Licorice, Vitamin C Ester, Bearberry Extract, Madonna Lily Extract, Green Tea and Vitamin A. It feels mild on your skin with no discernible smell. I use about the size of 5 pence piece and it lathers well with a wee bit of water.

This cleanser makes my skin feel smoother and doesn’t at all strip my skin. There is no SLS or chemical detergent agents which is what I look for in a foaming cleanser.

Although this is gentle enough to use every day, I use it a few mornings a week. I find I get good results from this frequency, it would also make a good second cleanse so it is versatile. I wouldn’t use this as a makeup remover, either as an AM or as I say a second cleanse PM.

Derma E Even Tone Brightening Cleanser is also very affordable, you can find online for as low as £11.20 and as you need so little a 175ml bottle will last months.

Beauty Kitchen Abyssinian Oil Aroma Facial Concentrate

Hi beauties

I’m sure you are all aware of my addiction to oils, and this one has proved to be a real favourite.

I have written about Beauty Kitchen before, I have tried a few products now that I really enjoyed, the Cleanser, the Line Serum, Moisturiser (other reviews will be coming too) but Aroma Facial Concentrate is my pick of the Abyssinian Oil range.

its a Light Oil, and you don’t need much. 3-6 drops is what I use depending on what my skin needs, I tend to use more on my neck which is thirstier than my face. It also smells absolutely divine wth essential oils of Palmarosa and Magnolia. Aroma Facial Concentrate is suitable for oily and dry skins helping regulate sebum production and rich in Omega 9 it helps to moisturise your skin too.

Aroma Facial Concentrate is also fabulous value, it’s £19.99 for 30ml. I’ve had the 15ml and used it regularly, I still have just under half the bottle left. I do switch it up with other oils in my stash, but I’ve already got a back up full size. Beauty Kitchen is sold in Holland and Barrett and often on offer.
