Balance Me Tinted Wonder Eye Cream review

Dark circles around the eyes don't have to be a pain to deal with. There are a ton of eye creams on the market to help reduce the appearance of them and a good concealer on top can help to hide the rest. What can be even easier though is one product that does both; a one step wonder product. Very fitting then that today's product even has the word 'wonder' in the name!

Balance Me's Tinted Wonder Eye Cream is a variation on the original Wonder Eye Cream with the added benefit of helping to cover dark circles as well as helping to reduce them. In addition, it also gets to work on fine lines.

It is 99% natural and combines cream and light reflecting pigments to help blur dark circles and reduce fine lines. It contains cucumber seed oil to gently cool, calm and reduce puffiness as well as moisturise and brighten; rosehip oil, a fantastic oil that helps to cell renewal and arctic cloudberry seed extract that is anti-oxidant and Vitamin E rich to help protect against environmental damage.

Balance Me also claim that this Tinted Wonder Eye Cream is also suitable for all skin tones.

It comes packaged in a white squeezy tube that comes in 5ml and 10ml sizes. The cream itself is thick and looks like a liquid concealer or foundation at first sight. It also has a light, clean fragrance.

Malin + Goetz Lip Moisturizer review

When it comes to the warmer months, there are a couple of things I like; a good lip balm and a glossy lip. Well, today's product can give us both.

The Malin + Goetz Lip Moisturizer uses fatty acid absorption technology to provide daily maintenance as well as relief, treatment and prevention for dry lips. It is fragrance and colour free.

You can apply it in a thin layer for a quick boost of hydration or you can apply it generously to create a gloss finish and it can also be worn over lipstick.

It comes packaged in a small, white squeezy tube that golds 7g of product (mine is slightly smaller holding 5ml) with the typical Malin + Goetz minimalistic style design printed on it. The Lip Moisturizer itself is a thick, clear gel.

Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser review

When it comes to removing makeup, cleansing, toning and then moisturising, you have to use a whole bunch of products and it takes a whole lot of time. But does that need to be the case? Wouldn't it just be so much easier to do it all in one go? Well, that's where today's product comes in.

Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser

Philosophy's award-winning Purity Made Simple Cleanser is a 3-in-1. It helps to remove makeup, cleanse the skin and also tone. In one step. On top of that, it also helps to lightly hydrate the skin.

It promises to penetrate deep into the pores to remove dirt and its natural oils help to keep the skin conditioned. It is also suitable for use in the eye area AND is gentle enough for sensitive skin. Sounds great, am I right!?

This is a cleanser that I have heard a lot of things about, so trying and reviewing it had to happen. I'm just surprised it has taken me this long.

It comes packaged in a clear bottle that comes in a range of sizes, but the one that I have here in the photos is a smaller 30ml bottle. The cleanser itself is a pale yellow in colour and is a nice creamy consistency that isn't too thin or too thick.

Everything You Need to Know to Master Cat Eye Makeup (Guest Post)

Cat Eye is considered to be one of the most hyped and requested eye makeup look in any makeover routine. Many of us who have already embraced the look find it very dramatic, glamorous and chic. A cat eye may turn out to be a beginner’s worst nightmare but if executed the right way it can actually add life to the whole look!

Here is a theory for all the Cat-Eye-Wanna-bes’:

“Good Wings come to those who wait!”

Yes! There is no shortcut. It takes time, patience and experimentation to master your flicks. It’s almost impossible to draw the perfect flick the first time and even if you do, the chances are that you would not be able to replicate it on the other eye. Sad story.

The good news is that if you follow the below instructions carefully, you might be able to master it in a shorter time span.

Thankfully The Body Shop have stepped in just in time to bring us a new release: the Instaglow CC Cream.

Louise Galvin Sacred Skin Hand & Body Lotion review

By now it's no secret that I love a multitasking product that is quick and simple to use. I also love great skincare products, and when these things are all ticked off at once I know it's usually something worth talking about.

Whilst Louise Galvin is probably better known for her haircare products, today I'm reviewing the Sacred Skin Hand and Body Lotion, a moisturiser that promises to leave the skin silky soft and smooth whilst keeping the skin's natural moisture balance in check.

It contains avocado oil and almond oil to soothe and moisturise dry skin while being gentle enough for sensitive skin. It is also a natural product that is free of SLS, silicones, petrochemicals, parabens, polymers and synthetic fragrances. Louise Galvin products are also cruelty free.

It comes packaged in a white, rectangular bottle that holds 300ml of product with a pump lid for easy dispensing. The lotion itself is white in colour also.
