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!
You can check it out here on QVC

That’s it for now everyone, take care

DECIEM’s 5 Piece Heroes Collection, First Ever TSV on QVC!

Hello fellow beauty addicts,

Well it has finally happened!! Deciem are doing their first ever TSV on QVC on the 23rd of January (pre-sale at 10am) .. Yikes! So they are calling this a beauty box and it show cases some of their best products across the vast umbrella of products that they now do.

So whats in the box you say!

Well the first product is the AHA30% & BHA2% Peeling solution 30ml. Oh this is the most fabulous beetroot red shade, definitely very unique and it is a really good product for exfoliating the skin and it is also really good for clearing out and dissolving the dirt in pores too. I have found this mask leaves my skin incredibly smooth, brightened and conditioned. It is different to anything else I have used due to the colour but that is a part of the fun of the mask, skincare should be fun at times.. Grab a glass of vino and go for it .. your skin will thank you in the morning!(even if your head is sore).

Next up is NIOD MMHC2 – Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex 2, 30ml, this is the updated version of MMHC and it has 15 different Hyaluronic compounds, precursors all in a highly charged peptide delivery system.
This product hydrates the skin on a multi dimensional level – in other words it doesn’t just hydrate the top layer of skin it goes down & hydrates the skin on many different levels and layers plumping it up and keeping it hydrated all day. I have been using this since it came out.
I was caught in the stampede and I didn’t care I wanted some!
I am waiting on the CIAS 2 as well…
Particularly good if you are stuck on the North West Coast of Ireland and it is baltic and the heating is on full blast, a product as good as this is a must!

The Chemistry Brand Hand Chemistry – Hand Cream this is skincare usually reserved for your face in a hand cream. It is completely anti-ageing and the results are fantastic! If your hands are dry and you can see them starting to age.. get this on and put some gloves on top at night and you will have hands that look 10 years younger by the morning, brighter, more youthful and silky soft .. Oh yes please!

Hylamide HA BLUR – Oh wow! I have just tried this product and I am amazed at how my face looks and feels, it looks younger, smoother and velvety smooth. I tried some on my hand too to really see if I could see what it does and I can! Results are immediate and my hand looks smoother and younger. No wonder this has won awards it is a really remarkable product .. why did I not pick up on this before? I have a new love for sure .I do know of others in my beauty group who have tried this and swear by it but I had never gotten round to trying it as well .. so many products Deciem now sells!
Ha Blur is a prismatic blurring surface finisher, you can use it under your makeup as a primer, mix it in with your foundation to give flawless finishes. and you can also take a little and tap it on gently to areas of concern that you want to Blur like your number 11’s, corners of mouth and really you just dab a very small amount where you need it. You can also just wear it on bare skin to give you a ‘softer focus’ complexion.
It also has Hyaluronic Acid in to keep skin glowing, the results are truly amazing.

Last up but by no means least is Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Acid from the Fountain range , 240ml – I LOVE these vitamin drink suppliments and I have 3 on the go right now including this one (God bless Black Friday lol) Again this is an award winning product it tastes lightly of ginger and it is packed full of Hyaluronic acid. 2 teaspoons a day in juice or water ect .. i just take mine off the spoon and have a glass of water after. I really do feel my skin is in better condition all over for taking this.
What I love about this is it not only benefits your skin but your whole well being, joints, bones, skin the lot so I love that is is multi purpose and vegan.

All of Deciem’s products are cruelty free & lots of them are vegan,some are organic, they are carving their own path in the beauty world and are not afraid if they don’t like something not to do it.
Their aim is to bring the consumer the best and most innovative products that they can, I like clean beauty but I also like some good science behind a product too and Deciem offers me this by the bag full.

This is a fabulous TSV the value combined of products is £110 and on the 27th of January it will be just £39.96 which is exceptional value!
I will put the link here when it goes live and that’s it for now ..Deciem 5 Piece Hero’s Collection!

Will you be treating yourself to this cracking TSV?

Bye for now

NIOD Today’s Special Value on QVC for 19th July 2017

Hello everyone,

Niod launches it’s second tsv on Qvc from midnight the 19th of July. This company just goes from strength to strength bringing us exciting new products and launches and I just love watching it grow as I feel we really needed something different in the skincare world and they have done just that.

I also like that they will never put in any ingredients that don’t need to be there like fillers, petrochemicals, fragrances ect. Just what needs to be in there to make a change on your skin. They don’t treat specific skin types …they treat skin to give you the best possible skin that you can have! 

So onto the products!

NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 15ml – CIAS- This is a real staple in my skincare this works on skin health, you use this first on your skin and it works on repairing the skin from ageing, fine lines wrinkles, skin tone, it works to make your skin the best skin it can be. It is a staple in my skincare.

You use CIAS morning and evening and it goes on before anything else on naked skin, wait 30 seconds and then continue onto MMHC2

Next is a new product it is the Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Acid 2 15 ml  – So this product has recently been upgraded by NIOD (they will always give you the best product that they can). It contains 15 different forms of hyaluronic acid in different weights and forms to tackle skin hydration on all different layers of the skin.

I have been using MMHC2 this since it came out and I find it lighter, smoother, silkier and less tacky on my skin. Worth mentioning here all forms of HA are somewhat tacky. This is the big long drink of hydration my thirsty skin needs, love it!

NIOD Mastic Must 90ml – I think one of the most important things I have learnt since I started my Niod journey is environmental factors and the effects they have on skin. We don’t think when we are out and about about the pollutants hitting our skin on a daily basis but they do and they really irritate our skin so good face masks are an essential.

Plus as we age our pores get bigger . sad but true! Mastic Must clears out skin and pores .. it really gets down and into the dirt and pollution that has been sitting on our skin for years and gives you super clean skin and clean pores .. a clean pore is a smaller pore!! So the cleaner you work to keep them the smaller they will be.

This is best used in the morning or just before a big night out to give you really smooth, glowing skin and your pores all minimised to greatest effect.

Finally there is the NIOD Photography Fluid Opacity 12% – Known on Instagram as Selfie Serum and rightly so as it pixelates and blurs imperfections on your skin. If you log on and watch the demo on QVC for it you can see as Nicola spreads it out on her hand how that really works and bounces the light back off your face making you look your very best. I do love this product and you only need one drop into your primer or moisturiser to blur fine lines and imperfections, A lady should never go anywhere without it, even with no make up on this will make your skin look better. 

NIOD-Setn2 (1).jpg

So that is it folks .. another exciting NIOD tsv .. oh and the price, well if you were to buy individually they would cost £110 for one day on the 19th of July you can pick up these products for an amazing £40!

This link will go live at 10 am 16h of July and you can purchase your TSV from here NIOD TSV

Just to add I already own all of the products in this tsv and I have reviewed them from long term use. Oh and the Founder Brandon will be there live on Q too .. sooo excited to hear his thought processes behind his products!!

Bye for now

Bio-Extracts 3 Piece Advanced Eye Contour Collection

Hello everyone,

I have been using Bio-Extracts now since the brand launched earlier this year.So when they sent me their latest  3 piece eye contour set I was beyond excited to  get to try them.

Bio-Extracts are not just purely plant derived products, they can take the most powerful plant extracts purest plant molecules that are highly supercharged into a Booster serum or cream to give you the most powerful, freshest bio actives in their products and  this is why anyone who has had the pleasure of trying these products are seriously raving about them. They see instant and continued results!

Boosters – these Concentrated Serums are as much a part of your skin care regimen as your cleanser and moisturizer are. They’re the ultimate way to combat your skin’s reactions to the effects of weather, hormonal imbalances and lifestyle aggressors

So the eye boosters first – they are designed to tackle the main 7 areas of ageing on the eye area that are – 

– puffiness
– crepiness, hooded eye lids
– lines and wrinkles
– crows feet
– eye bags
– under eye shadows
– pigmentation

Eye Contour Brightening boost – This works on dark circles, puffiness, dullness, fatigue, environmental stresses and loss of elasticity. It leaves your eyes bright and fresh, it is a real wake  up for tired eyes. The Phospholipid delivery system means it goes straight into the skin and gets to work instantly.

Eye_contour_brightening_Boost

The second serum is The Lift and Firm boost oh it is fabulous I could feel this tightening my under eye area from the very first use. With essence of snake flower this Booster serum it works on firming and contouring below and above the eyes to give us a more youthful look and it really does work, this I can really vouch for because I can feel it.

Lift&firm_Boost

Last but not least is the Bio-Extracts Age Defying Eye Cream this amazing cream is what you add your serums to on the lid of your jar of cream. You just mix a pea sized amount of the cream with a drop of each of the serums and then apply to the eye area.

Eye_Contouring_age_Defying_Cream

With White Lily bio-extract, Brazilian Ginseng to energise the skin Bio-Available plus a very special addition of Vitamin K which will boost microcirculation, improve the work of the blood vessels to help erase the eye bags and shadows under the eye (Yes!). I get very dark inner circles on my eyes and this will be a real godsend!

You will notice that it all sinks so quickly and that your whole eye area is refreshed, nourished and definitely firmer. The Age Defying Cream uses a multi Lamellar structure to deliver vitamins, minerals, your eye serums to all layers of skin on the eye area (remember this name because pretty soon everyone is going to want to use this technology) . It acts like a second skin pushing in your vitamins and minerals  where they need to be (into your skin’s layers) plus it acts like a shield protecting the skin from harmful pollutants that can irritate and destroy the delicate skins structures.

These products come from a woman with a highly scientific background. Everything is perfectly balanced to be its most effective on the skin and designed to give our skin everything it needs to be healthy and nourished. Each pump of serum is at its freshest to give you the most powerful bioactives you can possibly get.

It is super intelligent skincare that is paraben, petrochemical and non gmo free. It is pure vegan plant power! You do not have to be vegan to use this sort of skincare and you will still reap the benefits of super effective skin care on your face, because it is plant based is is far more readily accepted into your skin.

All things considered   this set comes at an incredible price on QVC of just £38.94 for 3 of the finest anti ageing eye skincare products. I just think you would be mad not to give this a go and see for yourself how powerful it really is.

You can find it here: Bio-Extracts 3 Piece Advanced Eye Contour Collection

That is it for now peeps,

Are Beauty Boxes Getting Old? Or Am I getting Fussier …

Hello everyone,

I have been an avid fan of the Beauty Box World for many years, from my very first box by Feel Unique, which I loved. To me it was still the best ever, as it brought me so much fantastic skincare that I wanted to try and it wowed me. But looking back and on their Facebook page, they got such grief about it. If they put skincare in, young girls were yelling at them as they didn’t want or need it and if they put too much makeup in older people were asking for more skincare!

So the surprise beauty box came to an abrupt end! I think Glossybox, which to me is geared at teenagers I always found poor .  Love Lula do a good organic box , but cost comes into play with organic and it tends to be bulked up with lip balms and hand creams which a years  later I am still finding about the place! Both still do a surprise box but for most companies the grief they got every month was just too much!

I wouldn’t fancy working in the Glossybox complaints department .. just sayin!

So now what we mostly have is a choice. Every month boxes like Latest In Beauty, You Beauty,  offer a subscription after a recent re-vamp. It had gotten very stagnant with not many new samples being available or that is how it felt to me. I hope they can keep the flow and not keep putting items from the monthly selection items into their Limited Edition Boxes ggrrr!!

For me I don’t buy a beauty box to get the same products over and over again, I buy it because there is something in there I really want to try. There is an ocean of products out there, please let us have them.

Love Me Beauty won funding on the Dragons Den recently and they have also struck a deal with Debenhams so hopefully some fresh samples coming there. Look Fantastic does a Box now too but it has never appealed to me…yet.

QVC Tili box – first 2 boxes were utterly fabulous, 3rd box was a big let down. Really hope they pick it up again as it is their way of reeling in the youth to their company and what they can do. 

When beauty boxes get big, they tend to lose out on samples from smaller niche brands and I wish this wasn’t so, as these are the things I love to try. Organic products too lose out as they can just be too expensive to put into a beauty box. Balance is needed but everywhere I look I am not being thrilled by what I see.

 Am I being more fussy now or does the whole beauty box world need a serious  overhaul?

Somewhere in our demand to now choose the samples ourselves, I think there is now a bottleneck with items we have all had before, clogging up the selection. I can see how that is bad for both customer and company alike, but how do they solve the problem?

I just want some new things to be wooed by! So in all my thinking about this and a conversation with Sandra @ Beauty Balm Blog about beauty boxes ..I think we need a 40+ box with targeted skincare and makeup products to try. The samples are out there, so surely companies would be jumping at the market?

I must mention the one box that is really working for me right now and that is the Perfume Society Box. There is such a wealth of information that comes with this box: It is a journey into fragrance that I would not or could never have taken, if not for these boxes. It comes beautifully packaged and is always full of new exciting fragrances from top fragrance houses, with some smaller niche perfume brands in the mix to try as well. They have the mix just right.

img_20170304_140853984_hdr-2

40+ customers have the most money to spend on beauty and if they like the products and see results they won’t be scared to really invest in that full size product if it works for them!

Let us see other smaller niche brands as well as the big ones that are working so much harder to please us! I appreciate smaller brands could not do large numbers but give them a chance to show what they do and how good it can be …

I am bored, bored, bored with what I am seeing, surely there is some exciting upcoming brands out there that need introduced to people? Or international brands wanting to break into the UK?

I don’t want to look at a monthly selection and see same, same, same … yawn! Some of the earlier beauty boxes were amazing, I would love to see a real return to this too.

Anyway would love to hear anyone’s thoughts on the Beauty Box subscription world …

Yours .. beauty boxed out ..
