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

Bio-Extracts Vegan Cosmeceutical Ground Breaking Skincare!

Hello everyone,

It is very rare that something completely new and outstanding comes your way but in my beauty group on Facebook that is exactly what happened when a lady by the name of Marina Nubo arrived.

Marina has her own labs and her knowledge is skincare and skin is more than outstanding. This is her pride and her joy! She is passionate about what she does and her skincare is her family, so she cares very deeply about her plant ingredients and has put Bio-extracts together from her wealth of knowledge to bring you a Cosmeceutical Vegan Brand that punches way above its weight.

So onto her face creams there is 3 types light, normal and rich and the cream which have the very latest biotechnology and ingredients.  I have been using the Normal face cream but as we slide into winter I will be going onto the rich . This cream and what it does tho is anything other than normal. It has a multi Lamellar (the first of its kind) which is very similar to the skins natural Lamellar structure so it mimics and restores the skins natural barrier function and takes your serums and moisture exactly where it needs to go.

It comes in an air tight pump dispenser jar, every dose is measured and the ingredients are super fresh and at their most potent. It is British made, cruelty free, paraben free, vegan approved and gmo free ..yet it is so full of high tech plant actives that are proven to work and give great skin results. Something a lot of women on my beauty group have remarked on.

This is also what sets Bio-Extracts apart from a lot of other vegan brands..it is the knowledge of putting together powerful plant actives into a new Llamar system that delivers fresh, potent and powerful plant actives that are so perfectly designed to not only work in tandem together but outstanding results to the women who use it.

The multi layered system in this cream is designed to take the serums which work in tandem with the cream and the vital nutrients your skin needs exactly where it needs to go boosting hydration, skin health, glow , locking that in and protecting your face from daily environmental factors .. even walking along the road now we are inhaling car fumes and it is sitting on our face causing so much irritation . This is pure skin food that protects.

Marina has put so much time and thought into every process. She has a scientific and technical mind. The more you use the products you come to realise this and how truly intelligent and well thought out this brand is!

Face creams are delivered in air tight measured doses and so are the serums. So every-time you use your products you are getting them as fresh as possible so they are at their most potent for you. Even the natural fragrance is designed to be beneficial when we inhale it.

I have to say I find this all pretty amazing considering the brand is Vegan, Clean, Paraben free, high tech and cruelty free!

Some of the serums tackle fine lines and wrinkles, they work on these not only on a daily usage but the more you use them the better the long term benefits are. The serums used alongside this face cream put you as a woman or man fully in control of what your skin needs on a daily basis.

So for example if you need more hydration there is a Hydra Boost, a Glow Boost for tired dull skin, Anti-Redness, Exfoliating ect … It has the first EVER  Vegan  Hyaluronic Acid ever in a product!! .Want more anti-ageing and wrinkle control during the day and hydration and glow to work on your skin while you sleep .. well no problem. This has been laid out for you to cherry pick what your skin needs on a day to day basis, how clever ..

I think the whole range is  fantastic value the serums come in at just under £20 and the face creams on the website are £27, there are a few value sets on offer and you can put your skin concerns in on the website and they will tailor a set just for you!

I will be doing a post about the serums soon as there is quite a few of them and too much to fit into a single post. Something here for every skin concern and everyone and if you give it a go your skin will definitely be rewarded.

Honestly everything has been thought of here and it is impossible to find fault, my skin loves it and I know a few other ladies who are saying the same thing!  Make up goes on like a dream and doesn’t budge all day. There is no 2 o’clock shiny nose, nothing.

I really hope you take a look at this brand because it is made by a woman who truly loves what she does and working with skincare and helping peoples skincare concerns and that is how this brand was born. I have learnt so much from her and I am blown away by her brand, her knowledge and the fact she will chat away to me about skincare which I love lol.

You can get £15 off your first purchase with Bio-Extracts with my referral which is a fantastic way to start and there is a variety of multi deals on the website which you can find here:  Bio-Extracts 

Anyway that is it for now folks, I hope you enjoy!

Take care

PRAI AGELESS Throat and Decolletage Cream & Throat Microdermabrasion Scrub

Hi everyone,

I have been using this PRAI neck and decolletage cream for a about a month along with the PRAI Throat Microdermabrasion Skin Resurfacer for just over a month now and i have to say i am delighted with the results!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Being 46 i have really started to notice the delicate skin on my neck starting to a bit turkey like :-O oh the horrors!!

I have tried quite a few neck creams Judith Williams, Gatineau but they really didn’t seem to help my issues. Now they hydrated the area alright but they didn’t halt the neck ageing process….. but PRAi has given me the best results yet, so i will be holding on tight to these products for quite some time 🙂

The neck scrub is a lovely refined texture so it doesn’t pull of damage the skin or the neck, there’s no pulling or tugging you just let it glide over your neck and decolletage for a lovely smooth polish and gentle exfoliation of the neck area, you really need to massage this product into your skin and keep on massaging until you can feel the exfoliation start to happen

It is essential as you get older to exfoliate more as our skin gets drier it gathers in folds and becomes deep wrinkles and a regular gentle exfoliation is much needed in these sensitive areas…to keep the skin fresh, healthy and hydrated!

The neck exfoliator is a very fine light scrub in a less is more sense it lightly polishes the skin, is gentle enough to use every day. By using this product you are gradually erasing  away all the old skin that is clinging to your neck making it look older

PRAI  is the root of a plant that is only harvested every 2 years in Thailand. It is renowned for its skin skin smoothing, restorative and anti-ageing properties. It is certainly fantastic at putting the vitality and elasticity back into my skin!

The throat cream itself is incredibly light almost gel like, i find the size of about a pea more than does my whole neck and declotte. Less is more with this product and it needs a very light indeed. To put more on would only be a waste of product really.

Not only does my neck look a LOT smoother, it looks incredibly younger too! Gone is the horrible turkey neck formation and i am left with a lovely tightened smooth neck! This is the first neck cream i have ever used that has given me such a powerful result on the area of my neck that most needed improved and that is right down the middle of my throat. It really does look 10 years younger, i am so happy i found these products!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I truly am!!

Is your neck starting to age you?

Fear not because there is some really fabulous products out there like PRAI that can really help hold the ageing process back or at least hold it back for us for some time to come yet 🙂

It had transformed my neck area ………totally :-)!

You can find more about PRAI here: QVC

Don’t you just hate admitting that even though your mind is no older your body starts to let you down after 40 lol x

Bye for now fellow beauty Junkies …
