Pixi Flawless & Poreless and Eyebright Liner – Reviews

140719 Pixi (2)

Flawless & Poreless and Eye Bright Liner by Pixi

Pixi is a brand that I hadn’t heard of until I started blogging, and still until now after 6 months of blogging I hadn’t tried any of their products! Well silly me! I’ve started to find out what I’ve been missing by trying out two products* - Pixi Flawless & Poreless No.1 Translucent and Pixi Eye Bright Liner – No.1 Nude.

Pixi Flawless & Poreless No.1 Translucent is a primer that “smoothes out fine lines and hydrates to soften pore appearance. Creating a flawless canvas for make-up application, this primer contains nourishing ingredients that clear and unblock pores.”

I tried this for the first time during the heatwave and so this was a real test for the product. It went on smoothly giving a smooth semi-matte finish. It felt good but I was worried that the humidity and heat would mean that the product wouldn’t be able to sustain it’s claim that it would help make-up stay in place longer. I should have trusted. Despite several hours in a bar and then a restaurant, when I arrived home my make-up was still in place. Well done Pixi!

It costs £20.50 here with free delivery and if you’re quick you can get a free gift with 2 purchases.

Pixi Eye Bright Liner – No.1 Nude is “designed for use on the lower inner rim of the eye to give eyes a wide eyed effect. Enhancing the white of your eyes, this waterproof liner offers precise application. In a nude flesh toned colour to give the illusion of larger, brighter and awakened eyes. Perfect for days when your tired and lacking lustre.”

I’ve never tried a product like this before and it’s fair to say that I’ve never felt the need to either. Still I’m not averse to trying new things. I love the look of the products such a cute colour and branding – they’ve given a real fresh look to my make-up bag. Anyway, back to the product, I applied the liner to my inner lower lash line and it gave a subtle lightening effect to my eyes. It didn’t make a huge difference but I’d say it enhanced the effect of my other eye products.

It costs £10.50 here and as above there’s free delivery and a free gift with 2 purchases.

Is Pixi a brand you’ve tried before? I’d love to hear your comments and experiences below.

Pegasus Beauty Showcase

I was very lucky to be invited to the annual Pegasus Beauty Showcase for the first time this week. They chose the very glamorous Westbury Hotel  in Mayfair to stage the showcase and I was super excited to see what they had in store for me there. It’s safe to say that I wasn’t disappointed. When I arrived at the Gallery I was offered a glass of Prosecco – always nice at the end of a long working day. The room was buzzing with press and brands.

Pegasus Beauty Showcase July 2014

Pegasus Beauty Showcase  - The Westbury Hotel

There were so many amazing brands there. Some that were household names and some that I knew nothing about. They included :

Trilogy, Witch Skin Care, Dr Organic, Temple Spa, The Harley Medical Group, Jivesse, Rapid White, Bio-Oil, Avene, A-Derma, Lloyds Pharmacy, Holland & Barrett, Viviscal, Colladeen Visage, Chapstick, Soft & Gentle, Cuticura, Collection, Homedics, Rokit, Elle Macpherson, Micropedi and Australian Bodycare.

The first thing that caught my eye was the Christmas tree piled with Christmas Gifts sets from a variety of brands. It seemed a bit odd with it being around 25 degrees in the blazing July sunshine outside but brands need to plan well ahead.

It's Christmas in July!

It’s Christmas in July!

While I was looking at the tree I got talking to two lovely ladies from Australian Bodycare who have just launched their new Cleansing Face Mask and Any Time Balm. What came over about the brand was that it’s for all the family and one product can have many uses. I loved the fact that it was such an all round feel good range of products.

I moved onto talk to the representative from Collection. This was the brand that I wanted to find out more about having recently tried some of their nail polishes ( I wrote a review here) and a brow kit. There I heard about three exciting new launches. These were the NEW Big Fake Curves Mascara, Heroes Lasting Colour Gel Nail Polishes (I had my nails painted with the shade Daredevil see pic below), and the Little Mix All About The Eyes pallette and Lip Balms.

 

Heroes Daredevil (2)

Heroes Lasting Gel Nail Polish – Daredevil

I then went across to the Trilogy stand. A brand I was aware of but knew very little about. As well as learning about their Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ and the Trilogy Age Proof Hydra-Tone Softening Lotion I learned the difference between the terms Natural, Certified Natural and Organic. Trilogy products are certified natural and this is a reassuring aspect of their brand.

I was then attracted to the Harley Medical Group’s Skin Care Range – not because I’m interested in surgery (although I surely need it!) but because I saw that they had some products that might address some of my skin issues.

My last stop of the evening was to the Jivesse stand where I heard about their collagen products and had a shot of their  Marine & Collagen Herb Elixir.

Jivesse

Jivesse

When the time came to say good bye I found that the event had been so busy that they’d run out of press packs. I’ve been promised that all the info and samples will be on it’s way in  the post – so when it does I’ll be able to add more info here and review some of the products.

Such an informative evening. Thanks to Pegasus PR and all the lovely people I met there!

Clinique Super Defense SPF 20 Facial Moisturiser – Review

I bought this Clinique Super Defense SPF 20 Facial Moisturiser way back in February when I’d only just started blogging. ( I posted about it here). Then almost immediately I was asked to review a succession of moisturisers and serums for the blog and it’s only just recently that I’ve been able to try out this gorgeous moisturiser from Clinique.

140706 Clinique2 (2)

Clinique Suoer Defense SPF 20 Facial Moisturiser

What I love about Clinique is the time the assistants take to check what you need from the product, what your skin concerns are and what type of skin you have. This gives me all I need from a day-cream. They say:

“Our most complete daily protection. All-day hydration for a healthy moisture barrier. There’s antioxidants and UVA/UVB protection. All in a formula that is light and silky. Apply in A.M. to face and neck after your regular 3-Step Skin Care regime. All-day hydration, antioxidants, UVA/UVB protection. Light, silky formula. Apply in AM after 3-Step. Specially formulated for combination to oily skin types.”
140706 clnique (2)

Clinique Super Defense SPF 20 Facial Moisturiser

The cream is rich and creamy and smooths on like a dream. I feel protected and moisturised without feeling as though my make-up is going to slide off my face. I know that its working for me to minimise the look of fine lines and hopefully keep some at bay a bit longer. I love this brand and of course the packaging is just what you’d expect from Clinique and that’s one more reason that it’s one of my favourite brands. It’s priced at £39.00 for 50ml and you can get it now here.
Do use and Clinique products as part of your daily routine? Let me know what you love about it in the comments below. I promise to reply!

Reviews & News – Balance Me

Gorgeous goodies

Remember I told you the other day that the lovely Balance Me people gave me some goodies to try. (If you missed it you can find it here.) Well, I’ve been doing just that and have some reviews to share with you.

I’ve also got some news about a competition that they’ll be running through July & August. Now that’s  a lot to fit in so I’d better get on with it.

Reviews

Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm – Full size £20 here

This was recommended to me as a very gentle exfoliant that I can use everyday. (The scan I had showed that I needed some exfoliation around the nose and central part of my face.) I’ve been using it most days and it’s making my skin feel fresher and isn’t too scratchy. I’m not overly fond of the fragrance, it’s not unpleasant, just not as yummy as the Balance Me BB Cream. Definitely worth a try for Balance Me fans.

Wonder Eye Cream – Full size £20 here

Again recommended to me, this was to address the signs of dehydration that showed up on the scan under my eyes. I have been using it day and night since I got it and I’d say that it’s very aptly named – it is a wonder cream – and I shall be very sad when I run out of my trial size. It smooths the fine lines on my lids and sets me up to apply make up to them that I know will look smooth and sleek.

Rose Otto Face Oil – Full size £32.00 here.

I really like the smell of rose oil and to be honest that was what I was expecting but didn’t find when I applied this facial oil. It smells a bit herby maybe but I couldn’t really put my finger on what it was. I was told that this is something that can be used day or night but I wasn’t quite brave enough to use it in the day and instead have used it every night since. It feels amazing – it’s so smooth and firming I’d really recommend it for night-time luxury and nourishment.

The Super Toning Body Oil –  Full Size £20 hereI’ve tried this a few times and i can’t believe how it sinks into my skin – it just disappears so I’m guessing my skin really needs it. Now I have to tell you that I have plenty of wobbly bits that need toning but this oil really meets the challenge. It seems to have an instant toning and firming effect and my skin feels supple and smooth. I can’t tell you what the results of continued use would be as I’ve only had it for a week but I’m loving it so far!

Competition

Balance Me have a competition coming up this month and running through August. It’s called Beauty Voyage and they want you to share your beauty voyage with them and you can win prizes every week!

They’ll be asking you to take pictures of your favourite Balance Me products taken on your travels whether home or abroad and then sharing them on Twitter and Facebook. make sure you’re following me @Strand0nBeauty as well as @balancemebeauty to keep up with all the details!

Hope you all have lovely summer hols to look forward to! Me I’ll be spending it in sunny London!

June Empties

And now its June and I’ve been blogging for 5 months. I can hardly remember a time when I could finish a product and just throw away the packaging without having to make sure I’ve noted it for my empties post. First up this month is…

1.Dior Prestige Satin Revitalising Nectar

Buy Dior Prestige Satin Revitalizing Nectar, 30ml Online at johnlewis.com

Dior Prestige Satin Revitalizing Nectar

Oh dear  - I’m really going to have to stop trying samples and falling in love with a product before looking up the price of the full size.

This gorgeous Dior Prestige Satin Revitalizing Nectar  just melts into my skin and makes it look amazing.

 

They say:

” Highly concentrated with Rose Satine Nectar, this anti-aging serum deeply revitalizes the skin. Immediately, skin is as soft, supple and radiant as satin. The signs of aging seem to disappear. Apply morning and evening to face and neck before your Dior Prestige Creme”

It costs £255.00 for 30ml here. If you can afford it I swear you won’t be disappointed.

EW FROM Pep Cosmeceuticals® SkinPep® Collagen Renew – “Peptide Repair Day cream” is an exceptionally high quality cream that helps to reinforce the epidermis. Skin appears firmer, moisturised, revitalised, and better protected. It appears smoother, firmer and more luminous.

2. SkinPep® Collagen Renew – Peptide Repair Day cream

SkinPEP Collagen Renew

SkinPEP Collagen Renew

This SkinPEP Collagen Renew is something I picked up from the Anti Ageing Health & Beauty Show . As I only had the sample size I can’t say if this could make a sustained difference to my skin but it felt good going on and made my skin feel soft and supple all day.

They say:

 “SkinPEP Collagen Renew contains the phospholipid lecithin to assist the absorption of peptides and our powerful Antioxidant Complex, Vitamin A (Retinol), C, & E. Soothing Botanical Extracts Algae (Seaweed), Grape Seed Extract, Red Ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract etc protect your skin from the damaging effects of free radicals.  Padina Pavonica Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Collagen and Glycerin have been added for optimal collagen hydration. Shea Butter, Evening Primrose oil, and Jojoba oil minimise liquid evaporation to combat dryness and ensure excellent skin moisturisation.”

You can buy it here.  2ml sachet : £4.99  30ml bottle : £34.99  50ml bottle : £59.99

3. Arbonne Make-up Primer

Makeup Primer from Arbonne United Kingdom

Makeup Primer

This Arbonne make-up primer glides on so smoothly and is the perfect make-up base. I loved using the sample I had. They say:

“Vitamin rich makeup primer visually diminishes fine lines and pores, creating a canvas for flawless makeup application. “

It costs £26.00 here.

4. Arbonne Lip Polish

Lip Polish, Posh from Arbonne United Kingdom

Lip Polish, Posh

This Lip Polish from Arbonne in Posh is a gorgeous, highly pigmented lip polish. It was shiny, moisturising and glamorous. It comes in a great rage of colours but this one is my favourite for a pretty summer look.

They say:

“Luscious lip polish glides on silky smooth and delivers superior shine without the stickiness”

Each shade cost £16.00 here.

5. No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream

No 7 Lift & Luminate

This Boots No 7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream is specifically aimed at my age range (50+) and is deliciously rich and creamy.

They say:

“This multitasking night cream powered by our clinically proven No7 Lift & Luminate serum’s technology, effectively targets the 3 key signs of ageing in older skin.  1. Line and Wrinkles 2. Lack of Firmness 3. Uneven Pigmentation. This rich cream leaves skin instantly feeling soft, supple, and more moisturised. Then night by night it visibly reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and lifts and firms for younger looking skin in 4 weeks. Contains our unique lightening complex to help prevent and fade uneven pigmentation and our clinically proven No7 Protect & Perfect anti-ageing technology.”
At £24.00 this is good value for money and a little goes a long way. You can buy it here now.

6. Dior – Capture Totale Eyes Essential Eyezone Boosting Super Serum

Christian Dior Capture Totale Eyes Essential Eye Zone Boosting Super Serum 15ml

This Capture Totale Eyes Essential Eyezone Boosting Super Serum is from Dior – one of my favourite luxury brands. As the serum goes onto the eye area is has a cooling feel. It’s a light serum with no greasiness and it smooths the fine wrinkles nicely.

They say:

“Enter a fundamental age defying step for the eye contour area. By eliminating the skin’s toxins, eyes essential achieves exceptionally revitalized skin to heighten its youthful appearance. As if infused with. substance, the skin in the eye contour area is less marked bursting with new cell matter, the eye zone is no longer subject to the passage of time and signs of fatigue.”

It’s currently on sale here at £49.00

7. Peter Simone P.M. cream

pm-nectar-peter-simone_grande

Peter Simone PM Nectar

How gorgeous does this look? I’d even have an empty bottle just for how it looks! This is the Peter Simone PM Nectar. I used a sample for a couple of nights and really loved how it made my skin feel in just this short time.

They say:

“This is a powerful repairing cream which has a plumping effect on the skin as well as brightening the complexion and restoring elasticity. It optimises the regeneration of skin tissue and immediately minimises all types of signs of fatigue and ageing. You will experience  a sublime regeneration of your skin which will appear softer and hydrated.

 The exclusive blend of Marine elements, in this rich night cream are  derived from advanced biotechnologies and  aid cellular metabolism, bringing  energy to cells nourishing them and strengthening the skin’s defence mechanism  by neutralising free radicals.”

It cost £78.00 here which is where you can also find out about all the rest of its amazing ingredients.

 8. Oqibo Hydra Restore Cream

Oqibo Hydra Restore Cream

Oqibo Hydra Restore Cream

I found this Oqibo Hydra Restore Cream to be a light pleasant every day moisturiser that made my skin fell silky smooth.

They say:

“A light yet intensive daily moisturising cream combining a complex blend of marine extracts, active botanicals, vital minerals and trace elements that work to restore and strengthen the skins own natural hydrating abilities, helping to balance and regulate moisture stores, to deliver a truly thirst-quenching effect.

Skin will feel immediately smoother, softer and fully hydrated, texture will be improved and suppleness restored. The special formulation delivers immediate skin soothing hydration whilst regular daily use delivers highly effective restorative effects that plump, smooth and protect for a naturally radiant and healthy complexion.”

I can’t argue with any of that and if you would like to try it then you can find it here. It costs £33.15.

9. Soap & Glory – The Righteous Butter

The Righteous Butter™ Mini

The Righteous Butter™ Mini

I won this delightful little pot of Soap & Glory’s The Righteous Butter in a Twitter give away with another couple of Soap & Glory products that I shall up date you on another time. I didn’t try it right away as it looked pretty ordinary sitting there and then one day I thought I would give it a fair  chance. And guess what ? I just love it!

It smells so lovely and girly and makes even my driest skin feel soft and pampered. I’ve used it right up and have only got one sachet of body lotion as back up – so I just might have to go out and repurchase – unless something else catches my eye. I’m afraid I’m easily tempted to try new things. But if you want a sure-fire winner then this is the right one for you!

They say:

“Award winning body butter with softening shea butter and aloe vera. Smooth on a handful after your shower and you might swear you’re wearing velvet. Scented with our Original Pink™ fragrance.”

It costs just £2.50 for the mini 50ml size here.

10. SkinPEP Wrinkle Clear Serum

SkinPEP Wrinkle Clear Serum

I used a sample size of the SkinPEP Wrinkle Clear Serum and it lasted a couple of days using it on my face and neck day and night. It felt amazing and I saw visible although temporary effects with this serum as my skin looked and felt toned and taut.

They say that results may include:

  • Improved cosmetic appearance of skin.
  • When used daily may support healthy skin metabolism.
  • May soften skin roughness and improve the appearance of age spots and evens out pigmentation.
  • May support the natural process of collagen synthesis.
  • May support skin texture, elasticity, skin smoothness and tightness.

It costs:   7ml tube : £7.99  30ml bottle : £29.99  50ml bottle : £44.99 and you can buy it here.

 11. Biotherm Biocils Eye Make-Up Removal Care

Biotherm Makeup Removers Biocil Conditioning Eye Makeup Remover 125ml

Biotherm Makeup Removers Biocil Conditioning Eye Makeup Remover

This is a product that I’ve had for so long and hardly ever used because I tend not to use eye-makeup that’s difficult to remove. It was part of a haul that I got as an apology from a Department Store that introduced me to this amazing brand.  It was way off my radar as the brand name sounds like some kind of central heating company (sorry Biotherm). Now I’m hooked, whenever I can afford it.

This Biotherm Makeup Removers Biocil Conditioning Eye Makeup Remover removes any eye-make-up easily even waterproof mascara and this means that you don’t have to rub or pull the delicate skin around the eye area.

They say:

Biocils is a fragrance-free make-up remover especially formulated to gently remove eye makeup. The secret to the formula is a blend of gentle, yet effective ingredients that have been carefully selected to minimize the risk of irritation most common to sensitive eyes while effectively dissolving makeup. Ophthalmologist-tested for gentleness and suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

It’s normally £20 but if you’re quick there’s 10% off here.

That’s everything for June – hope you find something here that you liked. If you do please share your comments below.
