Kiss The Moon LOVE Night Cream For Hands

 

Hey Beauties,

Been a while since my last post .. it would seem anaemia gave me a bit of a sabbatical but onwards and upwards eh!

Kiss the Moon I have wanted to try for quite some time, as their oils are all natural and aimed at getting you a really good night’s sleep. As someone with a full list of sleep issues, I thought I would try some samples a while back and fell completely in love with their LOVE Night Cream for hands … oh and they are British (I love to support Uk brands)!

IMG_20170427_090935911 (2)

Their Nighttime Hand Cream is a new product by them and full of Shea Butter, Rosehip Oil, Rosewater, Coconut Oil and Olive Oil so it really packs a punch on dry skin. With no parabens or sulphates the cream just sinks quickly and completely into your skin

The Love Hand Cream and Oils are aimed at anti-ageing as well as sleep (thats moi) and with a blend of Rose, renowned for calming skin and the mind, Frankincense, a natural mood lifter and Ylang Ylang to promote peace and relax, it smells beautiful.

The hand cream smells divine, not overpowering as I find some and too strong a whiff of essential oils can actually wake you up, by stimulating the mind instead of relaxing it. So this is a beautiful mellow blend and I adore the fragrance from my very first use.

The second thing I noticed about this hand cream was that unlike some (ok a lot) I found it to be very nourishing on my hands. I often get contact dermatitis and eczema on my hands and this soothed and nourished them overnight and that is what sold me on this cream , so much so that I had to invest.

It goes on like a rich mousse and quickly sinks into the skin .. no oily hands for hours after. It goes in and gets to work on nourishing and healing and it definitely helps me and my thirsty skin.

The aroma of delicate Rose, Frankincense & Ylang Ylang is so soft and mellow, it is really beautiful. My hands feel and look more nourished and I am just completely sold on this hand night treatment and the fragrance. I got a 15% off email where they asked for some feedback, so I bought the hand cream with that and sent them a message, telling them how much I loved it and what a lovely company and very humble people to talk to.

They were so pleased and sent me out a few more samples of their oils to try, plus the sugar scrub, which is made with brown sugar, so it smells deep and decadent and leaves skin super smooth.

I think that the LOVE Face Oil will be my next investment for sure, as that scent just totally wins my senses over. You can check them out here: Kiss the Moon

That’s it for now peeps ..

back soon I hope

Lola Satin Eyeshadows are Stunning!

Hello everyone,

I have found a new love! If you have not tried the M&S Lola brand, then I have to highly recommend it.

In this duo, the nail polish is a really hard working, hard wearing product, but the peachy toned colour of this eyeshadow is just pure perfection! It cleans up the whole eye area and really brightens it.

img_20161111_162359305

These are satin eye shadows and the one I have has a subtle shimmer in it. I haven’t taken a lot of time applying it on my lid, but it has gone on like a dream. I just dabbed it on and hey presto! It instantly awakened the whole eye area and made it look much better!

The shadows give a lovely rich intense application to the eye. They don’t feel dry and feel lovely and smooth and light on the eye.

I have fallen in love with this eyeshadow and will definitely be looking out for some more. Sometimes eyeshadows with a little sparkle in can irritate the eyelid as they are coarse, but not with this. It feels really good.

The Libbie Club has 20% off this Lola duo this month, they will make a lovely gift to someone as they are great for morning and evening. You can check them out here:

That’s it for now folks, take care

Neom Scent To Sleep Is Pure Bliss!

 

Hello beauties,

It has been a few years since I used the Neom Tranquillity range and looking back now they have really upped their game. Not only in their amazing fragrances, but in the packaging, everything about it feels luxurious and special.

img_20160922_150601614_hdr

When they launched their new hand balms I knew I had to get the Nourish, Breathe & Sleep balm because I am aware that when we get into bed, most of us have our hands close to our faces so the freshly warmed oils are directly inhaled.I was rubbing my bath oil on my wrists and using pillow sprays that my skin just didn’t like.

I have severe sleep issues and have tried anything and everything. I have ME & Fibromyalgia plus a bad back injury that makes getting into bed a real ordeal and some quality sleep a near impossible feat to achieve.

So what looks like a nice plumped up fluffy bed to most, feels like a bed of rocks and nails to me. So over the years there is not much I haven’t tried, including some pretty strong funky herbal teas, but I always persevere in hope ..but when my brain decides it isn’t going to sleep then nothing will make it happen!

IMG_20160922_150519373.jpg

But at the moment I am sleeping  much  better than ever with Nourish, Breathe & Sleep balm on my hands and some Tranquillity Intensive Deep Sleep treatment on my wrists and pulse points. Both these products have a blend of 19 of the purest essential oils including English Lavender, Sweet Basil, Jasmine and there is definitely a beautiful wild mint in there too making it beautiful and mellow.

The fragrance really does relax me and send me off into a heavenly deep sleep and as a bad sleeper that is saying something!

I am having such a love affair with this fragrance right now, not just because the scent is heavenly, but because the blend of oils really does help me to get off to sleep. I should add here that the hand balm is a night-time intensive hand treatment too.

Neom are promoting a good nights sleep through all of September.#sleepwithneom and it really is worth having a read and taking a look at their special offer. They are giving away with ANY purchase, a Tranquillity Intensive Deep Sleep fragrance roll on (lasts ages) and a Body Slim Clean & Lean Serenity shake with vitamins and herbs to help you sleep, lower anxiety levels and burn fat!! (yessss it deserves it’s very own blog post for sure) and it is chocolate flavoured .. hello!

The price of a good nights sleep is indeed priceless and I have had so many nights where I would have sold my soul for some sleep. Neom does cost that little bit more, but in my book right now it has been worth every penny and quite affordable .. My Tranquillity Intensive Deep Sleep Treatment  is £8 and my Nourish, breathe & Sleep Balm £15 and both will last me about 6 weeks …to me that is a high valued bargain and I will be back for lots more as I truly love it!

img_20160922_150412694_hdr

So this Sleeptember  grab yourself some beautiful slumber  with Neom worth £10 with any purchase with code SLEEPGIFT 

Bye for now folks

Mr Bean Coconut Coffee Scrub .. Wowsers!

 

Hello everyone,

When I got my Bean Coffee Coconut Scrub from the Libbie Club I was completely unprepared for what happened next …

Made with Organic Robusta Coffee Beans, organic cold pressed coconut oil, Himalayan pink rock salt, demerara sugar, organic cacao & Vitamin E oil; this impressive list of ingredients told me that this was something rather special.

IMG_20160731_163309253

I opened the bag and had a sniff .. I thought hello this is strong stuff alright ..so when I read the instructions I thought it best to put some in a bowl and take it into the bathroom so I didn’t get everything in the packet wet.

I figured with the dry texture it was going to be a little messy. You massage it onto and into wet skin and once you get the massage going and the product on your skin it gets a lot less messy.

My mind was blown away by the strong scent of coffee .. this is a double espresso for the body and mind … powerful top quality ingredients gently exfoliate and hydrate your skin as it goes.

This is a skin treatment that stimulates circulation, works on cellulite, various skin conditions like eczema, stretch marks, black heads and spotty backs, the heap!

With the beautiful organic oils it nourishes the skin as it goes. The coffee scent rinses clean away leaving you feeling so revived from head to toe that you are ready to take on the world!

My Bean Body Scrub has to be one of the most stimulating products for the body and mind that I think I have ever used .. I simply felt incredible after using it .. every time..it not only has incredible ingredients, but the after effect is nothing short of WOW and BOOM!!

IMG_20160731_163519715.jpg

Honestly it awakens the senses and leaves your body & skin feeling incredibly soft & lightly scented with coconut, just amazing …Mr Bean I salute you lol!!

Have you Heard of Mr Bean Body scrubs yet?

If you enjoy a mind blowing shower then take a look here at the offer on my Libbie Club page. My Bean Body scrub comes all the way from Australia and truly packs a punch in the shower ..

Check out Mr Bean scrub here and at the moment there is also a beautiful  free Bee Good  travel sized cleanser 30ml  with every order (while stocks last) Libbie Club

Miracle Cleanser by Aurelia

Hi everyone,

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Aurelia is a brand I am really getting into. I have bought the face scrub as I found it to be pretty incredible and leaves my skin like velvet. So when I was sent the cleaner to try i have just been blown away by these skincare products.

Auriela mixes powerful pro-biotic and peptide technology with BioOrganic plant and flower essences. So these products feel really gentle on the skin yet they are power packed to leave your skin feeling at it’s optimum level of hydration, calmness and softness.

I have to say I am totally loving how this cleanser makes my skin feel and look. After using there is a firmness to my skin, my pores are a lot smaller, my skin feels really clean, balanced and nurtured.

There is a real calmness to my skin.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Auriela uses only organic ingredients, it is free from any nasties that can dry your skin out or inflame it and after only one use I could really see and feel that firmness and real radiance to my skin. That makes me pick it up time and time again and still sill see these amazing results.

This cleanser is packed full of amazing ingredients to really feed your skin like Boabab which is packed full of omegas and vitamin c, Mongoongo oil full of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, Kigelia Africano that I can really feel firming my skin. It is also used for helping a number of skin conditions such as dry, itchy skin, redness, eczema and psoriasis.

It is blended with essential oils that not only smell amazing but they are in there for the job they do on the skin.Chamomile a natural calmer and anti inflammatory, Rosemary invigorating and stimulating, great for refreshing your mind too! Bergamont to uplift and Eucalyptus to decongest any troubled areas of skin.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

All this comes together to make a very powerful hard working cleanser on the skin, it repairs damaged skin, heals, feeds de-stresses, takes down inflammation, firms and just leaves skin feeling super velvet soft, calm, relaxed, happy, glowing skin.

Good cleansers don’t just cleanse your skin nowadays, they put hydration back into your skin, take down redness, calm, soothe and feed your skin. They put back in what the day takes out and stabilise your skins natural oils.

You seriously could not want more from a cleanser .. I have noticed how well my skin looked from the very first use. I really noticed a marked firmness, a natural glow from my skin and it just looks really calm and healthy.

Skin & Tonic Steam Clean Organic Cleansing Balm

Hey everyone,

I hope your all enjoying the mini heat wave we are having!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If like me (Irish white and pasty lol ) you get too hot and grumpy then Skin & Tonic Organic Steam Clean is a truly wonderful way to either refresh you in the morning or take the day off in the evening after a very hot day.

Skin and Tonic are all about Organic Soil Association products, transparency of the ingredients in their products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Simple but extremely powerful and effective and very beautiful!

Open, honest and Sustainable.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This Steam Clean cleanser just smells so good when you are massaging it onto your face, you only need a pea sized amount and that will warm in your hands and the more you massage it onto your face to cleanse and remove the dirt the more your skin will benefit from these beautiful aromatic oils.

Once you apply the hot cloth (also certified organic) and inhale for a minute or 2 you are in sensory heaven as the menthol of the Eucalyptus and the Spearmint give a wonderful hit to the sinuses and mind.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The cloth gently ex-foliates and sloughs off all the old skin as it goes to leave your skin renewed and soft.

This part is particularity good if you are suffering badly from hay-fever and the menthol and mint vapours are such a relief on hot sinuses. I have even been dabbing a little around my nostrils during the day to catch pollen and to give me that lovely cooling inhalation of those beautiful oils.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It can also be used as a refreshing lip balm or applied to any dry skin patches too to soothe them so it is pretty multi purpose and great value.

It totally clears your head and your skin! There is nothing in these products  to not to love.

Vita Liberata Luxury Tan in Medium really is pHenomenal

Hi everyone,

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Well FINALLY there is a little sunshine in Northern Ireland!! Still not warm enough to be sunbathing .. but it does make you feel like you want a little colour!

I have tried so many fake tans and being very fair they all tended to give me a touch of the Oompah Loompah which as far as I am concerned is not a good look. I would rather be milk bottle white with a good hint of blue than orange.

This is where Vita Liberata is different, invented by a local lady  Alyson Hogg she clearly understood the dilemma for thousands and thousands of scarilly white Irish women 🙂.

My first application of this product was very light, I exfoliated like a mad thang and then applied. You shake it well and then it bubbles out onto your tan mitt, I think this stops you over loading your mitt and your skin.

Good thing about this mousse is that it is build able. I was scared of using too much at first because I had in my head if I made a mistake then I was stuck with it but I can see this is an extremely well thought out product and if you want a really deep tan then you apply a few more layers and keep topping up.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What I got was a beautiful golden healthy glow that took my whiteness away and left me feeling and looking a lot healthier all over. Hands down this is the best self tan I have EVER tried!

It didn’t stink of biscuits and though the guide colour looked a bit dark before my shower I really love the colour underneath, it has faded really amazingly too, not a patch in sight!

How they get it to colour your skin and not your bedding too is another great point to make and an important one, there was very little actually came off onto my bedding or clothes. A few minutes after applying I was able to get dressed and into bed.

Oh and it is organic .. YES!!

I am now spoiled for any other tanners, I should have known a long time ago Alyson would have put everything into her products and she really has .. to find a tan that is a beautiful shade for me for summer means the world! I can now look as healthy and tanned as everyone else!

This tan is not called PHenomenal for nothing it can last up to 2-3 weeks, you build it up to the shade you want and it comes in Fair, Medium and Dark so there is something there for us all (mine is medium), it is so easy to apply it is idiot proof (that’s me lol), dries really fast, doesn’t smell so you can get on with your day straight away, it has a moisture locking in mechanism, all tans are much better with lots of moisture in and it fades so naturally it is unreal.

This Vita Liberata Luxury Tan does everything they say it will and it leaves you with the most natural beautiful colour it really does and I think it is worth paying a bit more for a result you will want to go back to time and time again .. I have faith in it now and really trust in it now!

You can check out here at the Libbie CLub where I am a brand ambassador! It comes with a free tanning mitt too and you can also get free postage so worth a look 🙂
