Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist

Hello beauties,

Been a while since my last blog post but onwards and upwards as they say!

I have been using this Tatcha luminous dewy skin mist for a while now and have been reading a bit about the brand.

Tatcha came to life from a Japanese lady, Victoria Tsai who had enough of life in the fast lane and wanted simplicity and authenticity in her life, she also suffered from chronic dermatitis and from there she began to learn about the importance of good skin ingredients and of course well-being.

An encounter with a modern day Geisha changed her life. She started reading about a different approach to skincare, routines and rituals that for centuries has been kept and handed down from woman to woman.

Tried and tested formulas, simple, pure and effective and cutting out the need for a lot of the preservatives and harsh ingredients in a lot of today’s skincare.

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin mist is a silky spray-on moisturiser for anti-ageing and dry/combination skin it is made with squaline, red algae and an anti-ageing ingredient called HADASEI-3 Complex, which is known as a powerful trilogy of Japanese ingredients – it also protects the skin and keeps it dewy and glowing. It is formulated with over 20% botanical oils and Hyaluronic Acid.

It delivers a lovely light but hydrating mist to the skin and can be used on top or under makeup throughout the day. This is such a fantastic product to stop your skin from drying out and keep you looking fresh and dewy.

It smells heavenly and I can really feel the benefit of the mist on my face. It is softer and more hydrated, which coming into the winter season is something I find incredibly important.

It is free from parabens, mineral oils, synthetic fragrances & sulphates, anything that can really irritate sensitive skin.

I am a face mist addict – I find the right ones an excellent way to get extra hydration into my skin and to give a boost during the day too. Tatcha has lots of vitamins and hydrants in which makes it a skin lovers gem of a mist.

This mist is absolutely beautiful and after learning a bit about the brand it is something in time I would love to try a lot more of. It is not available in the UK yet but fingers crossed it will be at some point soon! Right now you can get it here in Sephora.

Have you tried any Tatcha skincare?

I love that Tatcha’s ingredients have stood the test of time and are well proven to be effective and that it has that wonderful balance that Victoria Tsai has applied to her skincare and her life.

That’s my thoughts for today, bye for now

the40somethingbeautyblogger

 

Hello Beauties,

Today I have a competition for you! Yay!

It is for a Skin Organics Beauty Box. I have to say, I have been seriously impressed with the box I was sent and I have decided to subscribe, as I just love organics and clean products. Our skins readily accept these products and they work so much better on the skin (no harsh parabens).

Every month, you get sent 5 organic and clean products for just £21 plus £3.95 shipping .. For organic products that is a pretty amazing price, as it really can be much more expensive for niche, purer products. Funny how you have to pay more for products in their natural state and not filled with ingredients to really dry your skin out and irritate it!

Everything about this box feels smart, clean and beautiful. I am absolutely loving the 5 products I was sent…

Skin Organics -Clean & Natural Beauty Box Competition!

 

Hello Beauties,

Today I have a competition for you! Yay!

It is for a Skin Organics Beauty Box. I have to say, I have been seriously impressed with the box I was sent and I have decided to subscribe, as I just love organics and clean products. Our skins readily accept these products and they work so much better on the skin (no harsh parabens).

Every month, you get sent 5 organic and clean products for just £21 plus £3.95 shipping .. For organic products that is a pretty amazing price, as it really can be much more expensive for niche, purer products. Funny how you have to pay more for products in their natural state and not filled with ingredients to really dry your skin out and irritate it!

Everything about this box feels smart, clean and beautiful. I am absolutely loving the 5 products I was sent. They are all award winning products, which I will list below, as you will receive the same box if you win.

Siskyn Camelia & Safflower Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil – a skin-brightening cleansing oil, that is gentle enough to take over your eyes to remove your eye makeup too. I don’t know about you, but sometimes  I think it is a pain having to get a lot of different cleansers out at bedtime!

Terre Verdi Acqua Di Rose Balancing Mist – Anyone who knows me, knows I am crazy about rose water and this one is lovely and pure as it just contains pure Damask Rosewater. I will be buying this in a full size as it has not left my side since it arrived (alcohol free).

Freyaluna Tea Tree and Peppermint Refreshing Foot Scrub – when I opened the box I could smell the beautiful peppermint coming from this … it is a brown sugar scrub and with it being so hot at the minute, it is a real treat to refresh hot tired feet. The good thing about a sugar scrub is it goes all creamy on the feet as the sugar dissolves leaving so silky smooth.

Kathy Sue Ann’s Anti-Ageing Eye Balm – Now this is a bit different to what I am used to, but I think it is a very good product. Particularly where I live, on the coast, it can get very windy and you can get watery eyes that sting and get very irritated. In an emergency, great on lips or other patches of irritated skin too.

Last up is Maggie Ann’s Nail Polish in Grace – A beautiful bright pink for summer! Free from 6, this nail polish is Peta approved gel polish and its formula is streak free and super glossy.

So how do you enter to win this box? Just like the skin Organics facebook page HERE & Subscribe to their website HERE (wait for the pop up to appear) and like my Facebook page too HERE and leave a comment on the competition on my facebook page to say you have entered all the conditions and give the competition a share.

Winner will be drawn at random in on Friday evening (4th of August), good luck everyone ❤ . You can also get 10% off one of The Skin Organics with code firstbox10.

NIOD Today’s Special Value on QVC for 19th July 2017

Hello everyone,

Niod launches it’s second tsv on Qvc from midnight the 19th of July. This company just goes from strength to strength bringing us exciting new products and launches and I just love watching it grow as I feel we really needed something different in the skincare world and they have done just that.

I also like that they will never put in any ingredients that don’t need to be there like fillers, petrochemicals, fragrances ect. Just what needs to be in there to make a change on your skin. They don’t treat specific skin types …they treat skin to give you the best possible skin that you can have! 

So onto the products!

NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 15ml – CIAS- This is a real staple in my skincare this works on skin health, you use this first on your skin and it works on repairing the skin from ageing, fine lines wrinkles, skin tone, it works to make your skin the best skin it can be. It is a staple in my skincare.

You use CIAS morning and evening and it goes on before anything else on naked skin, wait 30 seconds and then continue onto MMHC2

Next is a new product it is the Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Acid 2 15 ml  – So this product has recently been upgraded by NIOD (they will always give you the best product that they can). It contains 15 different forms of hyaluronic acid in different weights and forms to tackle skin hydration on all different layers of the skin.

I have been using MMHC2 this since it came out and I find it lighter, smoother, silkier and less tacky on my skin. Worth mentioning here all forms of HA are somewhat tacky. This is the big long drink of hydration my thirsty skin needs, love it!

NIOD Mastic Must 90ml – I think one of the most important things I have learnt since I started my Niod journey is environmental factors and the effects they have on skin. We don’t think when we are out and about about the pollutants hitting our skin on a daily basis but they do and they really irritate our skin so good face masks are an essential.

Plus as we age our pores get bigger . sad but true! Mastic Must clears out skin and pores .. it really gets down and into the dirt and pollution that has been sitting on our skin for years and gives you super clean skin and clean pores .. a clean pore is a smaller pore!! So the cleaner you work to keep them the smaller they will be.

This is best used in the morning or just before a big night out to give you really smooth, glowing skin and your pores all minimised to greatest effect.

Finally there is the NIOD Photography Fluid Opacity 12% – Known on Instagram as Selfie Serum and rightly so as it pixelates and blurs imperfections on your skin. If you log on and watch the demo on QVC for it you can see as Nicola spreads it out on her hand how that really works and bounces the light back off your face making you look your very best. I do love this product and you only need one drop into your primer or moisturiser to blur fine lines and imperfections, A lady should never go anywhere without it, even with no make up on this will make your skin look better.

So that is it folks .. another exciting NIOD tsv .. oh and the price, well if you were to buy individually they would cost £110 for one day on the 19th of July you can pick up these products for an amazing £40!

This link will go live at 10 am 16h of July and you can purchase your TSV from here NIOD TSV

Just to add I already own all of the products in this tsv and I have reviewed them from long term use. Oh and the Founder Brandon will be there live on Q too .. sooo excited to hear his thought processes behind his products!!

Bye for now
