Bio-Extracts Post Summer Skin Offer

Hello beauties,

I don’t know about your weather but it is freezing here and so are my feet lol!

As the heat goes on more and we go in and out of the cold to a dry heat in the house/work and our faces are getting battered with all sorts of weather I would like to recommend this Bio-Extracts Post Summer Skin Set from QVC.

Bio-Extracts are just over a year old now and way ahead in their technologies. It is science meets power plant extracts bring you high powered skin boosters delivered by Phospholipids to create Skin Boosters 5 times more powerful than regular serums, to me they are like a vitamin shot for skin that skin drinks straight up.

They are a vegan brand, but you do not have to be vegan to use this or see and feel the skin benefits from pure plant goodness. But these formulas are so highly scientific and gentle your skin will really benefit from cutting out the chemicals and using clean, green sls and paraben free beauty.

Bio-extracts has put the attitude into Vegan skincare with their cosmeceutical approach to plant powered skincare!

The set consists of –

1 x Bio Extracts Moisturiser (30ml) – in a choice of Light, Normal or Rich. Improves hydration and helps protect skin from external irritants, by helping to reinforce the skin’s own natural barrier.

This cream has a unique multi lamellar system that moisturises all layers of the skin to plump and hydrate. As it travels down through the layers of skin it takes the serums with it to give you nourished skin that is locked in and protected from all weathers

1 x Bio Extracts HA Hydro Boost (10ml) – forms a protective film on the skin and gives intensive hydration. Contains botanical hyaluronic acid.
One of the very first vegan hyaluronic acid’s ever, this really is a shot of pure hydration.

1 x Bio Extracts Anti-Wrinkle Boost (10ml) – helps to refine the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by intrinsic and extrinsic ageing.
Perfect for this time of year when the days are grey and we all start finding faults in the mirror! Great for around the eye area, cheekbones, neck and anywhere you feel needs treated, lips including!

1 x Bio Extracts Anti-Oxidant Boost (10ml) – super concentrated serum which helps to defend your skin against aggressive free radicals from pollution.
This is the perfect answer to skin that is getting challenged in winter weather. It protects the skin from environmental factors. It is a potent mix of minerals, vitamins and flavonoids. It not only protects your skin it also strengthens and revitalizes grey tired skin.

This fabulous set worth £86.50 is on offer at £39.98 QVC, there is no better time to try than at this price for 3 powerful Skin Boosters and your full size face cream to see you through the winter!

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

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

SBC Simply Beautiful Collection!

I love this brand’s products for oh so many reasons! They are super multitasking and the gels can be used right up to your lash line, you can layer them on thick as a face/eye mask and leave to soak in overnight or use under your moisturizer as a boost and tho they are gentle they are also really hard-working ..

DIGITAL CAMERA

I will start with my Collagen gel, as a light moisturizer alone in summer it is fab, its water based and it sinks straight in helping to boost my skins collagen levels, i use it as a face mask, eye mask, its fab as a decollete mask and really from head to toe and any bits of skin that are starting to sag! It just rocks!!

DIGITAL CAMERA

Next up is the Arnica Gel and the Arnica bath soak, this set is priceless to me, i have ME and Fybromyalgia and i cannot tell you how many long lonely winter nights this has eased my pains! I have a long soak in the bath and then apply the gel in a thick mask like layer to aching joints, neck, shoulders and my back , it really does help. Arnica really helps bad aches, bruising and general swelling, great on puffy eyes and eyelids too, it has too many good properties to list but this is how i find it helps me.

Jasmine and Evening primrose oil is like a hug in the shower, amazing if you are hormonal, i have a load of shower gels in my bathroom but i find myself regularly reaching for this one, i find it so soothing and you get such a good lather with it, if your hot and sweaty it will leave you refreshingly clean ..

Last up and i have no picture of this one (as i lent it out) is the Propolis Gel made by bees to protect the hive and keep it healthy, it is to maintain healthy skin and that’s exactly what it does, it’s absolutely incredible at healing cuts that have scabbed over, i lent to it my neighbour as her grand-daughter had fallen over and cut her face and 2 days after using this her scabs were almost gone and lovely healthy skin coming up underneath, its superfast! I see SBC have now brought out a new Propolis shower gel and i will be getting one very soon !

SBC do so many amazing gels like vitamin C, Cucumber, lavender, Aloe Very, Fresh Cotton ect, they all do an amazing job, i buy mine from QVC as the prices are fantastic and they do the giant sizes up to 1 litre which means you can be very generous with them on your skin and they last a very long time

Well thats another of my beauty loves shared! I do love variety and trying lots of new products, do you ?

Bye for now
