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.

Till next time,

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.

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

ESPA Overnight Hydration Therapy

Hi beauties!

Today I have the Overnight Hydration Therapy from Espa. I can’t remember now where I got this from as I have had it a while and for some reason I overlook it, I don’t know why.

This is a rich creamy mask that you do have to take a bit of time to work into your skin. The directions say to massage into face, neck and Décolleté until the formula turns white. Then wait 5 minutes before retiring to bed.

The fragrance is utterly divine, Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang and Lavandin essential oils make up the scent with encapsulated Lavender releases it’s fragrance once the mask has settled on your skin.

I love this mask, I didn’t want to because I knew that coming from Espa it would be expensive. And it is, a 55ml jar will set you back £37.00 but if you want a fuss free product that smells of a beautiful spa and makes your face feel wonderfully soft in the morning, this is the mask for you. Check out more about Espa at http://www.espaskincare.com. A heads up, their Facial Oil is also gorgeous!

Green Keratin GK11 Seriously Ageless Serum*

Hi beauties,

Today I have The GK11 Seriously Ageless Serum kindly gifted by Green Keratin.

This is a really lovely hydrating Serum with some fabulous ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Matrixyl 3000, Ecosilk, beautiful essential oils of Rose Geranium, May Chang and Jasmine. It’s lightweight, you only need a couple of drops and it provides a lovely glow.

Due to its fine texture, you literally only need a few drops. I find that works best for my oily skin and then I apply my moisturiser or SPF on top. A 30ml bottle is £21.95 so brilliant value, I really enjoyed using GK11. The texture and fragrance made it a pleasure to use as well, I also used this under my eyes and it was great at hydrating my lines and making them look much less noticeable!

There is a matching moisturiser to go with the serum, keep your eyes peeled soon for that review…

Till next time,

Jordan Samuel The Aftershow Treatment Cleanser*

Hi beauties,

Earlier on in the year, I received a parcel with the WHOLE Jordan Samuel Skin line. There wasn’t a note or a card to say who it was from so I’m still stumped!

Anyhoo, within that wondrous package was this, The Aftershow Treatment Cleanser. This was known as Pliè, it’s a sumptuous gel-to-oil texture that’s easy to apply to your skin without dragging. Grapeseed and Jojoba oils dissolve the makeup and grime and the Willow Bark extract and fruit acids provides a very gentle exfoliation.

You can emulsify The Aftershow Treatment Cleanser, as someone with an oily skin I love that it rinses clean with no residue. I adore this cleanser, apart from Cream cleansers, gel-to-oil is my next favourite formula. I find you get a real deep cleanse at no detriment to your skin.

Now a shameless plea to Jordan: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE come to the U.K.!! I am going to be so sad when this is finished! Due to shipping and custom charges it makes this out of my reach unfortunately. Jordan’s products are really affordable for you lucky US peeps, a 94ml tube is $20.00 which equates to just over £15.00. This cleanser is absolutely beautiful and a joy to use.

Till next time,
