Jivesse Marine Collagen Cream Review

For a long time people have been searching for the secret for eternal youth. Part of the lore of Alchemy involved the Philosophers Stone which not only could turn base metal into gold but was the elixir of life allowing regeneration and possibly immortality. As you get older wrinkles inevitable appear on your skin and you start to feel like King Canute trying to hold back the tide. Now I am in my forties I am always looking for ways to keep my skin looking youthful. Luckily I do not have many wrinkles yet which I put down to a good skin care regime since my teens. I always make the time to cleanse and moisturise my skin. I do have some fine lines appearing and when I was asked if I wanted to try Jivesse Marine Collagen Cream I was happy to.

Braun Silk-Épil 7 Skin Spa Epilator

Looking outside today you could almost think that Spring was here. The sun is shining and the birds are singing. With the onset of warmer weather it is time to start thinking about stepping up the beauty routine. Legs that have been hidden in trousers all winter can now go on show in pretty skirts. It is essential to spend some time preening before stepping outside with bare legs. Whilst shaving is convenient, I find it leads to quick regrowth and sometimes I manage to cut myself. Waxing just strikes me as time consuming and I hate the smell of hair removal cream. I have always wondered about epilation, the results are meant to last longer. I was really excited to try the Braun Silk-Épil 7 Skin Spa Epilator. The Braun Silk-Épil 7 Skin Spa  is more than just an epilator, it also has an exfoliation head to keep skin super soft. There is also a shaver attachment. More importantly the Braun Silk-Épil 7 can be used wet and dry, so you can use it in the bath or shower if you wish. Epilation The epilation head contains around 40 mini tweezer that act to pull out the hair from … Continue reading →

Four beauty products for Spring

Despite the cold and ice at the moment there are signs that Spring is starting to appear. Mornings are getting lighter and I have seen hints that Spring flowers are on the way. There are buds bravely appearing on the end of the bare tree branches and this morning I saw a hint of a daffodil shoot peaking out of the ground. Many of us have started a new heath regime to prepare for the Summer when we will not be able to hide the fat that has crept on over the Winter under layers of clothing. It is time to start thinking of beauty products which will help prepare us for the warmer weather. Recently I have been trying out four beauty products for Spring and wanted to share these with you. 1. Radox Citrus Shower Range There is nothing harder than getting out of bed on a dark morning. Many of us have made resolutions to exercise and it is hard going when it is cold outside. The Radox citrus shower range has some great uplifting scents to help boost your mood and get you going.   You will find the shower gels in four varieties, Invigorate, Revive, … Continue reading →

Blackhead Killer Gift Box Review

A while ago Style Lux  sent me their Blackhead Killer Gift Box to try out and review. You may remember I tried out the blackhead killer masks some time ago and was impressed with them. I wanted to see how the cleanser and moisturiser would work to complement the masks. The gift box contains Blackhead Killer Facial Cleanser, 5 Blackhead Killer masks and the Blackhead Killer Facial Moisturiser. I enlisted my son to help me test as he has recently been suffering from teenage spots. The packaging is quite plain and uniset so he was quite happy to help me test. First he tried the Blackhead Killer Cleanser. The cleanser contains active ingredients to open pores and help to simplify blackhead removal. It will also remove dirt and impurities. When you squeeze some of the cleanser out of the tube it is transparent and gel like but as you use it it foams up and becomes more soap like. It does not have much scent. My son said that it left his face feeling very clean. When it came to using the blackhead killer mask things got a little more complicated. If you remember my previous review you will know … Continue reading →
