Seeing as it’s almost the end of November I thought I’d do a post summing up some new beauty products I’ve recently given a try, you’ve got to admit, we all love reading a little review post and adding products to our ‘to buy’ list. I’m pretty keen on trying out new products, especially products that can be of great benefit to me, specifically with any slight benefit targeting my problematic skin which I’ve had my battles with over the years, and even to this day still do.
Want to soothe those chapped lips? Coconut oil. Want to moisturise your skin? Coconut oil? Need to take off your make-up? Coconut oil. Basically, what I’m trying to say is that coconut oil is the answer to everything, well certainly, it’s my answer to everything. I’ve tried cheap coconut oils from the likes of Superdrug, which have done the trick, but ever since trying out the amazing Evanesce luxury coconut oil, both myself and my skin can tell the difference in terms of the quality of the product and its outcome. To touch, this coconut oil melts straight away on the end of your fingertips, ready to smother yourself with, hydrating your skin and providing it with the nourishment it deserves. With multiple benefits stated, with specific emphasis on how it combats signs of ageing, this coconut oil proves helpful for insect bites, tattoo aftercare, scar/wounds, as well as being an alternative for make-up removal, and lip balm too. My coconut oil routine involves rubbing some on any of my acne marks/redness before bed, and I can tell you with complete honesty that when the morning comes around my redness is totally reduced. So at its usual price of £29 I wouldn’t hesitate in paying for this as my skin reeps the benefits. BUT, I’ll let you in on a little bargain, right now it’s ONLY £14 so snap this up before Black Friday ends.
Do you ever just want to kick back and relax with a face-mask on and some cucumber slices over your eyes, just like you see on the TV? Really though, my idea of relaxing doesn’t involve heading to my local Tesco to purchase a cucumber and cut two slices for my eyes, to then waste the rest of the cucumber and purchase another one the next week to do the exact same with. I’ve found something even better than a cucumber and they’re called Eye Slices, and can be reused up to 10 TIMES, so no need to repeatedly purchase those cucumbers ladies and gentleman. With 20% active ingredients, you can see great results within minutes, with people even referring to these eye slices as a ’10 minute face lift’. Again, like the above coconut oil, these eye slices also bring benefits, targeting puffiness/dark circles, tiredness, redness, in addition to the effects of ageing. Taking them out the packaging I wondered how these could provide an instant cooling sensation without being placed in a fridge for a decent amount of time, could this be possible? It was, popping them on my eyes felt so cooling and soothing, they were very hydrating with their motto ‘relax, restore, revive’ coming to mind. Even after multiple uses, they don’t ever lose their moisture. These are the perfect addition to any relaxing evening, and although I felt extremely relaxed, my eyes felt so fresh. For a lovely little starter pack, which includes 1 pair of eye slices (for up to 10 uses) and a sleeping mask, this will cost you £20, you can check out the products here.
If there’s one thing I couldn’t survive without since its increased popularity is dry shampoo. Whether I’m feeling too lazy to wash my hair or have made last minute plans and just don’t have the time to wash it, dry shampoo proves to be a blessing to my life over the years. What about a dry shampoo that’s wet? Isn’t the purpose of dry shampoo so you don’t have to wet your hair, will dry shampoo that’s wet actually work? These were a few questions I needed answers to so I tried out Zerreau, which is apparently the quickest and easiest way to wash your hair without water. All you have to is apply the wet foam on to your roots, massage into your hair, allowing any dirt, grease, oil or even hair products such as hairspray or gel to be released into the foam. After following these easy steps all you have to do is simply towel dry your hair and style it as you please. My one recurring problem with the likes of dry shampoo is the white streaks it leaves, which makes it look as though I’ve got grey hair coming in at 22 years of age, so I’m very pleased to say that this wasn’t a problem with Zerreau. I’d highly, highly recommend this, not only does it cater for all different hair types, but is so convenient for those with a fast paced lifestyle, those who are constantly on the go, or those who want to enjoy a weekend of camping or living it up at the latest big festival, without feeling unclean. With fragrances such as coconut, apple or strawberry, the retail cost of £3.99 for a 70ml bottle or £7.95 for 180ml seems priceless for fresh looking hair without the water, click here….I know you’re tempted.
If you get the chance to purchase these products then I recommend doing so, they’re an absolute treat, with the coconut oil being my personal favourite – my skin hasn’t felt luxury quite like it. What November newbies have you tried this month, leave a comment below.
