Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid

Hi beauties,

I have the iconic Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid. I bought this earlier on in the year and have been trying it out.

Salicylic Acid works better for my skin, but I have to say I don’t get the hype for this product at all. It’s ok, however for me I much prefer Jane Scrivner Skinfoliate, that’s an AHA/BHA blend of acids which makes my skin super smooth and helps to keep breakouts at bay.

Also I do find Paula’s Choice products at the more expensive end for 118ml it’s £26.00 while you get 150ml for the same price with Jane so better value for money.

I wouldn’t buy this again even at the travel size to be honest, it hasn’t given me the results I was looking for and I have been left distinctly unimpressed.

Till next time,

Liz Earle Superskin Overnight Mask

Hi beauties

A relatively new launch from Liz Earle, especially to the Superskin range the Superskin Overnight Mask.

This mask is absolutely beautiful, I have completely fallen in love with it. I use it maximum of twice a week as I am more on the oily side, you could use it more if you are dry or have more mature skin.

It definitely delivers on what it’s description explains “Slow the ticking, naturally, with our luxurious overnight mask, delivering radiance-enhancing nourishment for visibly brighter, smoother and firmer-feeling skin by morning.
Supercharged with extracts of Persian silk tree to brighten and even skin tone, pomegranate flower to firm, plus buriti, borage, rosehip and cranberry seed oils to intensely nourish and lock moisture onto skin.”

The glow you get in the morning is beautiful, I do notice a brightness not so much firmness as that’s not a concern I have. So quick and easy to use, I use a pea size amount for face, neck and chest and go to sleep.

Superskin Overnight Mask is also brilliant value, for 100ml it cost £43.00. You need so very little that if you used it twice a week I think you would get 6-8 months out of one jar. Don’t be tempted to use too much, you really don’t need it. If you need a quick fix overnight Superskin is a fabulous option.

Laqa and Co Colour Lip Crayon

Hi beauties

I’ve got the beautiful Cloud Lips from Laqa & Co. The company is a New York based (located on the Lower East Side) it was created by a group of women who didn’t want to have to sacrifice good formulas for good looks.

This is a gorgeous lipstick, the formula feels buttery and soft and utterly comfortable. The pigment is bright without being stark, this shade is Daydreamer which I think is the perfect mauve pink.

Wear time is the only thing that lets it down slightly for me, as after a couple of drinks this was gone. But the formula and colour is so gorgeous that I forgive it that little indiscretion. Cloud Lips have four shades and are £13.21 each direct from Laqa & Co.

Paula’s Choice Resist Anti- Aging Trial Kit

Hi beauties,

I’ve been looking to try some Paula’s Choice products, they are raved about so when there was a promotion earlier on in the year with the Resist Anti Aging Trial Kit for combination/oily skin I snapped one up.

The kit contains:

  • Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser 30ml
  • Daily Pore Refining Treatment 2% BHA 30ml
  • Youth Extending Daily Mattifying Fluid SPF50 15ml
  • Anti Aging Clear Skin Hydrator 10ml

Slightly disappointed that all the sizes are not equal in this kit, I mean the SPF wouldn’t last long at 15ml if you were to apply it properly. You should be applying 1.48ml for your face and reapplying regularly. If only applying once a day with this formula (which is NOT a once a day product) it would be 10 days.

The evening moisturiser is a piddly 10ml so I would be annoyed at paying £35.00 for the kit which is its regular price. I paid £19.00 and at the time of writing is currently available at that price.

Technic Cosmetics Eyeshadow Primer

Hi beauties

Today I gave the Eyeshadow Primer from Technic Cosmetics. I love their metallic cream shadows so I wanted to try this.

I have been finding that my eyelids are starting to become quite crepey, especially with powder shadows so I knew I needed to get a primer.

Technic Eyeshadow Primer is for Matte shadows, I don’t usually use concealer as I haven’t been able to find one that covers properly so the primer route is where I went.

Well what a disappointment, it looks like it’s going to be decently tinted. I have a lot of purple and red on my eyelids which can make shadows look muddy, this primer did nothing to help cover. It felt difficult to apply and did nothing to take the colour out of my eyelids and make a good base.

My quest for a decent eye primer is still on, if you have any ideas let me know.

SVR Sebiaclear Hydra Moisturiser

Hi beauties,

Today I have Laboratoire SVR Sebiaclear Hydra Anti Mark Soothing and Repairing Moisturiser. It’s a bloody mouthful!! Sebiaclear is part of the SVR range that is dedicated for people with oily fizzog’s like mine.

Sebiaclear Hydra is a moisturiser that doesn’t strip your skin, quite the opposite actually. It’s for oily skins that have been using traditionally drying spot treatments and need hydrating and repairing ingredients like Shea Butter, Glycerin, Niacinamide and Argan Oil.

I really like this moisturiser, it’s not greasy or oily at all it has a beautiful light texture and never feels heavy on your skin at all. Put that with a lovely fresh fragrance and you have a winner in my book! I got my original one from Feel Unique where it’s £14.00, since then I’ve found it from http://www.easyparapharmacie.co.uk where it’s £5.98. An absolute steal!

Alpha H Liquid Gold Collection

Hi beauties

I bought this collection from QVCUK a couple of months ago while it was a today’s special value. I like Alpha H but have got out the habit of using the brand and this set intrigued me.

There were 2 new launches in the collection, the Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream and the Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask. I also hadn’t tried the Liquid Gold 24 Hour Moisture Repair Cream so looking forward to trying that.

I love peels in a mask, they’re so quick and convenient and you get results in about 10 minutes. Who wouldn’t want that?? I have tried it a couple of times but want to test it further to see how I can work it into a routine. Keep your eyes peeled as all products will be individually reviewed
