MOA Daily Cleansing Ritual with Bamboo Cloth.

Hey there Beauties,

I hope you are all well?

I usually do a spending ban in January, but I haven’t this year and have picked up a few nice bits, not necessarily in the sales. I got 20% off the Guerlain Meteorites Spring Glow Blush and a Mac Amber Eye Palette and I am impatiently awaiting my Postie this morning ..

Meantime, you gotta have something equally good to take all this beautiful make up off with and the MOA Daily Cleansing Ritual is beautiful and just the ticket!

You warm a pea sized amount of the balm in your fingertips, then massage it onto your skin and watch it slowly dissolve your make up. You can take it up over your eyes and lashes too and it is great for getting every last bit of mascara off.

At this point I get an old cloth and take the worst of the make up off my face and then go in with a little more balm to make sure it is getting into the pores and getting all my make up off completely.

Not let’s talk about the cloth. I love bamboo cloths, they are antibacterial, sustainable, eco friendly and super soft and I just love them. This is my cleansing cloth of choice; I have about 20.

This cloth gives a bit of gentle exfoliation on one side and the other side is as soft and light as a cloud .. it is that ahhhhhh moment, when you press a hot cloth onto your skin and the balm starts to melt and you inhale the lovely gentle oils in this balm. Press the cloth on for a few moments if you can and then slowly work to take any make up residue left on your face.

Skin feels super clean after this and velvety soft, all the old oils and grime from the day are gone and you feel totally refreshed and relaxed .. it is a wonderful way to end a stressful day, as a balm like this not only cleans the skin, but it helps your whole being to relax.

Suitable for all skin types & free from any nasties, this balm will not irritate your face. It is as good for oily skin as it is for dry or problematic skin, it cleans, purifies the skin and soothes it at the same time.

There is 10% off The MOA Daily Cleansing Balm this month and you can check it out here January’s Libbie Offers .. it comes with the fantastic white cloth too which is a good substantial size to work with.

That’s it for now folks

THE HERO PROJECT UNDO Bi-phase Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

 

 

Hey everyone,

The Hero Project is a company intent on finding gaps in the beauty market, where they feel they can improve on the products that are out there. They launched their first products here with The Libbie Club last year and since then the brand has gone from strength to strength.

I have really loved the Hyasoft Gel and The Glow Drops a lot. Now they bring us a bi-phase micellar cleansing product for the eyes and lashes. You shake the bottle to activate it and the active formula goes in and breaks up your eye makeup like a dream!

Mascaras and last all day eye products are getting harder and harder to remove in the evening, so this eye makeup remover is designed to stop us rubbing our eyes. It is gentle, so no stinging, but it takes off every drop of mascara and liner.

It has softening chamomile & cornflower to soothe the whole eye area and to nourish the eyelashes. Hyaluronic Acid adds hydration without being oily or greasy on the eyes afterwards.

All you do is shake the bottle to mix the formula together and express the product onto some clean cotton wool. I like to hold this over my eye to let it really soak in and break down my powerful long lasting mascara and eyeliner. Everything just sweeps away, leaving my lashes and eyes clean, calm with no redness or skin upset.

I have used many eye products where I am trying to massage the product into the lashes and eye area and I can feel it is not going to budge it an inch, it is frustrating and always leaves me with red sore sensitised eyes.

.With the UNDO, I can feel it going in and breaking down that waterproof long lasting mascara and eyeliner and taking it clean away off my lashes. It takes minimal effort and no rubbing or scrubbing and no panda eyes in the morning as lashes are completely clean!

I think every woman needs an eye makeup remover like this now that we use hard working bulletproof eye makeup. We need something hardworking but very gentle on our delicate eye area and this Bi-Phase eye makeup remover does it very well for me indeed.

You can find it here at the Libbie Club with 10% off:- Libbie Club Offers

Bye for now ladies

Ginvera Marvel Gel Blackhead and Pore Cleaner

Hey everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying this mini heatwave we have been having! We have had a thunderstorm in the middle of the night so cup of tea in hand I thought I would start my review for the newly made-over Ginvera Green Tea Marvel Gel!

IMG_20160605_143519487

Ginvera has a huge following and is the best seller throughout Asia with this amazing green tea gel. They have changed the packaging and slightly tweaked the formula tho it was soo good before I can’t tell much difference .. perhaps my skin is that little bit smoother and brighter

Why?

Well because it is so extremely effective at cleaning dirt and oil out of congested skin but it is super gentle and works on all skin types to keep the skin surface super clean, smooth and healthy .

Therefore all your skincare works much better and your make up goes on so much more smoothly too, less oily patches and a more all round mattified skin.

The Korean’s are incredibly fussy about their skincare and quality definitely rules for them and this is a really hard working multi tasking product that gives instant results and gratification that it is a job well done ..

As you massage it on to clean dry skin,it spreads out over your face picking up the dead skin on the surface and it literally rolls off taking old skin, dirt and excess oils with it.

Very simple but effective! I take it down across my neck and chest too as those areas of skin are thinner and need to be treated gently. I love how it leaves my neck so velvety smooth and the old wrinkles are much less defined.

Worth noting too that men’s skins tend to be oilier than women’s so if your man/son has a bit too much oiliness or congestion then this would be perfect for them too.

It contains white Tea Extract which is a powerful antioxidant. it has anti-inflammatory properties so it calms the skin, helps bring oxygen to the surface of your skin, brightening and improving skin tone and it also helps improve collagen production.

It is quite remarkable how good this Ginvera Green Tea Gel is .. once used you wonder why you have never heard or tried it before because it is one of those products you genuinely won’t want to be without!

You can find it here with 10% off on my Libbie Club Offers Page

I really recommend giving this product a go while it is such a good price at the Libbie Club and now people are trying it .. it is really flying out the door!

Have you tried the Ginvera Marvel Gel yet?

If so what did you think of it?

Niod Sanskrit Saponins

Hey Everyone,

Great day here so far it is finally feeling warmer and I have all my bedding out blowing in the breeze .. happy days!

I want to mention a new cleanser I purchased from Victoria Health (a company I love). Niod Sanskrit Saponins is not your average cleanser.. but then Niod don’t do things the normal way! They break the rules and trail-blaze … it is skincare for me (and others) to really get excited about.

IMG_20160505_155643937.jpg

I will leave the science to Brandon and Victoria Health and just tell you how I have found the product personally and how it has made my skin feel ..

This is not a cleanser for removing your make up, this is a cleanser for skin .. yes your skin! Having used this more than a few times now I think I have worked out what it does in layman’s terms (hopefully).

What Niod have done here is stripped back cleansing to a very old Ayurvedic technique centuries old using plant Saponins and applied it to this deep skin cleanser  that cleans the skin so very well this product focuses more on skin health. Clean skin that can breathe is healthy happy skin.. it is addictive and I love it!!

To use you wet your face and massage a large pea sized amount between your fingertips to warm and activate the product you then massage it over your face for a few minutes or you can leave 5 minutes as a mask..

IMG_20160505_155657019

What I can feel it doing like a gentle suction action all over your face  getting into the pores,  shrinking back and taking out the junk, soaking up excess oil, dirt, dead skin so that when you rinse …any product build up & dirt on the skin come away leaving your skin feeling velvety soft, super clean, and it can really breathe in the air.

It is ph balanced, you don’t need to tone after if you don’t want to. It takes off any product build up you may have on your skin, it cleans and clears out spots, removes dirt and impurities so well the size of pores are drastically reduced .. this I really love because as you get older pores get bigger and now I have to look VERY hard to see mine .. it is a miracle!

So it is like someone coming into your’re home and scrubbing it from top to toe. giving it a good ole hoover  in every corner and taking out every last bit of dust and rubbish .. skin feels spotlessly clean and fresh, mattified and clear.

I honestly cannot say enough good things about the Sanskrit Saponins  and how it makes my skin feel. It is a cleanser I think we have been in need of for a very long time .. one that treats the actual skin alone, doesn’t take off make up, just makes your skin feel and look cleaner than ever and does it really well.

Everything works better, my skin feels so incredibly soft and yes again .. clean .. cleanest it has felt in a very long time. So if your into your skincare and love healthy skin like I do then this cleanser needs looked at to be added to your skincare arsenal for sure as it lets skin breathe again!

IMG_20160505_155924227.jpg

Brandon who owns Niod has shown here he can go from extremely high tech to stripping and paring back products and letting them be ..very intelligent skincare indeed…

It is £23.00 for 90-ml from Victoria Health and worth a read up on what they have to say about the product.

That is it for now folks
