OZ Naturals’ Super Youth Eye Gel Review

By Posted on 2 Comments 2 min read 0 views

Hello! How are you today? I hope you are having a good week? Today’s post is about Oz Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel that was sent to me for review.  For the past month, I have incorporated this into my daily skin-care routine on my quest for the perfect skin. All those who follow me know that I am a skin care pledge this year to help repair and clear my skin from the skin imperfections I have gained over the years. In my previous skin care post, I mentioned that I was using the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. This product for one although good it is very expensive costing an average of £40 a bottle. I wanted to find a cheaper alternative (trying to save my precious ££s). Something that works just as well but a lot cheaper.

First Impression
The packaging looks average, and the gel is in a small 15ml plastic bottle with a pump. I think it smells like cucumber *I do not particularly like the smell but I am use to it now, so I am sure you will too*
The serum feels very nice on the skin; it is easy to apply; a little goes a long way. Just dap the serum on the areas of concern. Even though it says it is for the eye area, this can be used on the whole face. I have been using this product for over three weeks now. I can honestly say my skin looks more radiant, my dark spots have slightly improved, and so have my dark circles.

How to use:
I apply this  on a freshly cleansed face. Dap a little around the eyes including my eyelids. Use a little on my acne scars on my cheek, forehead, and chin *Ps you can also use this on your face not only your eye area* I use in the morning and at night before bed. I sometimes use this as a moisturiser if I am too lazy to use my daily moisturiser.
Ingredients:
Key ingredients are as follows: Matrixyl 3000, Peptide Complex, Natural Plant Stem Cells, Cucumber Hydrosol, Jojoba Oil, Vegan Hyaluronic Acid, Amino Acid Blend, Wildcrafted Periwinkle, Organic Licorice, Wild Crafted Eye Bright, Wild Crafted Reishi, Organic Gotu Kola, Vitamin E. Ingredients are 75% natural
Where can i get this from:
Cost
This gel costs £13.99
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who like me suffers from dark circles, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. It has been effective so far and is gentle on sensitive skin and it is a cheaper alternative to try out. I know you’ll enjoy their product (s)
I hope you found this post helpful in your search for the perfect skin care? Have you tried any Oz Naturals products yet? Please leave your thoughts and comments below.

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 4 views


Don’t you love that feeling when you find a new product that actually works! I was really excited to try this mascara because a lot of people have raved about it and I had to see if it was worth the hype. It’s bizarre how the woman brain sometimes works right!? You tell yourself I won’t give in, but one day the girly girl in you takes charge and buys things you’d tell yourself you wouldn’t lol.
Looking back now, I thought it wouldn’t live up to the hype and maybe a pure waste of money. Oh Boy! Oh Boy! was I wrong! The magic brush somehow manages to grab all my lashes in a swipe and gives my eyes life and drama all at once. It is magic in a tube and the results are insane. It gives me the length, volume, clump-free lashes with just one coat.
Oh my God I have nothing negative to say about this mascara as it does exactly, what it says on the tube. It’s like finding the perfect bra that goes with almost every outfit!
Clump free, dramatic, voluminous, eye-popping, sexy, seductive eyes which are sometimes a necessity when one is trying to make a statement. Personally, it doesn’t get much better this and Black Magic ticks all the right boxes. 
This mascara also comes with added long-term benefits, which is always great. It contains conditioning properties and is enriched with shea butter and keratin to help repair, protect and promote growth. Score!
Black Magic (here) won my heart with its smudge proof, long lasting properties for up to 12hrs. What made this one of my must have for me is the fact that it is water resistant as well. I must say that It is very hard to get off with face wipes. Fear not it removes with three or four swipe of my Simple Kind To Eyes eye Makeup remover (here). And I am not allergic to it. Winner!
Please use with caution 🙂
Have you tried the Eyeko Black Magic Mascara? Do you like it?

Until we meet again. Thanks for reading!
Have a great day.

Birchbox: March 2015

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 2 views


 

I already own the full-size Benefit Roller Lash, so this wasn’t a new discovery.  However, it doesn’t hurt to have more to save for a rainy day or to have in my makeup bag for optimal touch-ups during the day.
This was a discovery for me and I am pleased, for now I know about Catherine Malandrino. This perfume is very overpowering, masculine, long-lasting, fruity, sweet smelling that is very, very different from most of the scents I already own. The Sample size was more than enough temptation!!
  Little Red Notebook
I am a massive doodler and for someone who is always doodling away on random pieces of paper lol. This will come in very handy for one of my doodling marathons 🙂
This product is an ideal companion to help tame and nourish my thirsty, frizzy afro. Although, I have noticed that  Birchbox monthly boxes 
Lord & Berry is another Birchbox has introduced to me. I really like this pencil. It is easy to apply, very pigmented and lasts all day. I have started using this for tight lining my eyes and then smudge out to create a soft smokey eye. 
This is yet another brand introduced to me by Birchbox this month. Spring has sprung and with summer right around the corner; I am looking for products to help me revamp my skin care regime to get summer ready.  Janjira Thai Lime & Ginger Shower Scrub is a body scrub to help gently exfoliate all the dead skin and leave your skin glowing.

WILD ABOUT BEAUTY MATTIFYING BALM

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 1 views

 

Hi, how are you today? I hope you’re having a good week?
I want to to show you this new discovery for oil skin that i love. Like most oily to combination skin gals out there, i find it really hard to find to keep my makeup in place all day with minimal touch ups. Whilst casually browsing through the birchbox sale last month, I found this little baby. This is my first ever wild about beauty purchase. I haven’t or probably wouldn’t have heard of this brand if i hadn’t been a monthly birchbox subscriber. Sorry for the haven’t  and wouldn’t.  I was hesitant to buy this… but when i saw that it was on sale for £12.60, i thought to myself why not. Bargain ££!!

When i opened it, i was reminded of benefit’s Dr. Feelgood but it looks and feels a lot lighter on the skin and it has a sponge that can be used to apply the product onto the face. I tested it on the back of my hand and it disappeared within a couple of minutes.
Benefit’s Dr Feelgood
When i apply products on my face, i don’t want my face to feel clogged up or congested. Personally, with this balm i feel like it does exactly what its suppose to; keep the oils at bay!!
I have a lot of bases that use sporadically to change things up and i feel this balm is right at home with the bases collection. 
What do i love about this product
I love everything about this balm, its easy to use, a bargain and does exactly,what it says on the tin and i have been using this as part of my makeup routine.
How to use
This product can be applied using your fingers or the sponge. Apply directly onto the face; can be worn alone or use as a primer to keep you a smoother finsh for less touch ups thrughout your day.
What’s in it:
Dimethicone, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Octyl Hydroxystearate (Ethylhexyl Hydroxystearate), C30-45 Olefin, Triethylhexyl Trimellitate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sea Whip Extract.
I have tried so many hyped up products out there from big named brands to drug store brand. Some of them worked and some seemed to have made things worse and i am happy to say that this is ne of the products i feel for noow works really well with my skin and helps to keep my makeup in place and my face shine free with minimal touchups.
Where can i get it from:
Birchbox for £21.00 
I hope you found this post helpful? Have you tried any wild about beauty products recently? Which one(s) would you recommend i try. Please leave your thoughts and comments below.
Thanks for stopping by.
