Indeed Labs Nanoblur Instant Skin Finisher

Hey everyone,

I have been playing about with Nanoblur for over a week now to see how it works and how it works on my skin.

Nanoblur hides the look of fine lines, imperfections and pores! It is full of optical prisms that bounce the light off anything you want to hide on your face or for that matter anywhere on the body you may like to blur something.

So this bounces the light out in different directions off say a wrinkle, some spots, age spots, pores, fine lines, thread veins and it takes down shine, mattifying skin which also makes things like pores a lot less visable.

Everybody I know seems to be paranoid about their pores or imperfections on their face. (Instagram has a lot to answer for lol) . In my case I used it to hide some lines and wrinkles that I do not like!

So what I did was mix a little into my primer and applied this all over my face and that gave me pretty much an all over flawless finish to my foundation.

I have a line across the top of my nose that I hate and with the nanoblur I can barely see it in my picture. I also dabbed a little over my top lip and corners of my mouth. As an x-smoker I would be a little paranoid about the fine lines that I have there.

I know I bang on about my age a bit but I think it is important that people can relate to age and the product that I am using and if it will help them … so I will say it again I am 47 and I feel this has pretty much given me a perfect complexion!

So what this product has done for me is pretty much give me the promised flawless finish to my skin .. the less is more approach is definitely needed when applying on top of your make up but it really works as you will hopefully see in my picture…

Pixi Nourishing Lip Polish

Hey everyone,

I thought I would tell you about this fantastic little product I got by Pixi. It is a nourishing lip exfoliating product.

I don’t know about you but I find those sugar scrubs and other scrubs much too harsh on my lips and I do not like them at all!

IMG_20160806_164629453

The head of the applicator has little massage nodules on the actual product .. so you are massaging the lip, taking off any dead skin cells  gently and the liquid within the tube then has a rich blend of Shea Butter, Primrose, Apricot & Sweet Almond Oils to nourish and hydrate  .

It is a simple but very effective little lip treatment and I like it so much I have just secured another!

Niod Bio-Lipid Concentrate is lip plumping, Conditioning, Perfection!!

Hello everyone,

NIOD – Non Invasive Options in Dermal Science is a results driven brand that offers people who do not want to go down the surgical route an alternative to going under the knife. Their products are unique, trailblazing and streets ahead of most brands I have used.

IMG_20160805_152948454

What this means for me is I not only have the most AMAZING skin care ever … I am a total convert … because it gives me results that I can feel and see!

At 47 I was noticing that my lips were going a bit like a flat tyre and had definitely lost a lot of volume. I didn’t want to go down the route of lip plumping injections but I didn’t like how deflated my lips were either.

BLC  (Bio-Lipid Concentrate) is a combination of power packed latest technologies they plump, nourish, increase lip colour which fades as we get older and generally give us fuller bigger lips and for me this has been a Godsend.

It works!

It has lifted and filled my lips out as I hope the pictures show ..my lips are soft, hydrated and plumped (phew)

This product comes in a 15 ml and is generally around the £36 mark , I considered this a lot before I bought it but you only use one drop at a time, so 2 drops a day lasts you a very long time!

I am not going to even try to go into all the technology in this little bottle but I will tell you this .. I reach for it every day and I see the difference it continues to make to my lips .. it works long-term on a daily basis to improve lip volume… so the more you use it the better it works ..

IMG_20160805_153012945

I adore NIOD.  Gone are the days of heavy creams just sitting on your face that your skin cannot absorb .. move over to  slick potions that go straight into your skin delivering amazing results .. stick with NIOD and it will reward you .. lots!!

Ps please make sure you  wash your hands after using this product and don’t get it on any other part of your skin!

That is it for now

Take care

Nicola

 

Mizon K- Beauty Placenta Ampoule Cream

 

Hello fellow beauty addicts,

I am a bit late to the Korean skincare party though I know so many UK women are truly loving it. What really interests me from what I have read is that a lot of it is cruelty free and vegetarian.

IMG_20160804_134124503

Mizon was founded in 2000 by a team of cosmetic beauty specialists and let’s be hones, for it to still be going and have reached the UK shores it has to be of the best quality and a a really good face cream.

So what have I learned and noticed about this cream … well … it has a lovely thick consistency that really smoothes out onto the skin and is readily and quickly absorbed and I have noticed it gives a lovely matte finish, most important if you are wanting to put your make up on quickly in the morning.

The ‘placenta’ mentioned in the name comes from the part of the plant that feeds the seeds of the plant and the flower. It is rich in amino acids, peptides, trace elements and minerals. For this reason it is known to be highly nutritious for your skin.

So what will this do for your skin then? It contains Hyaluronic Acid and Trehalose which helps hold moisture in your skin. Also sagebrush, yarrow and rose extracts which all soothe, plump and nourish skin.

If your skin is feeling a bit grey and flat this will really nourish, hydrate & brighten the complexion for you and really give skin a lift and boost.

This cream is perfect for all skin types including sensitive, it is soothing on my skin as well as nourishing and it feels like it really smooths my skin out texture wise too.

Nizz Cosmetics Lustre Lipstick in Nude Rose

 

Hello fellow beauty addicts,

I hope you are all well 🙂

Nizz is a relatively new brand on the beauty market and I am delighted to get one of their vegetarian lipsticks to try!

Hypo-Allergenic, Fair Trade & Paraben Free this lipstick has an awful lot going for it ..

IMG_20160802_145601812

I find a good quality lip conditioning lippie pretty hard to find these days. A lot seem to be pretty much the same bland mix which is ok but to get something luxurious, vegetarian and with an incredible lustre is a win, win, win ..if you get very dry lips in winter this would be a perfect blend for anyone who suffers from dry lips!

IMG_20160802_141012744

These are luxury lipsticks made with fair trade butters, oils and waxes and the result is a delicious  buttery lipstick that glides gently over the lips delivering a highly pigment lustre and it just feels so beautiful on the lips.

The shade is Rose Nude and it really is a stunning lipstick in so many ways .. you can check out the 3 nude shades here on my Libbie Club page and check out this month’s Libbie offers and there is free postage over £30!
