Top 5 Gifts for Her

1) Giorgio Armani Si – €54.99 – €99.99

nd_18453This is Giorgio’s latest fragrance for women .Giorgio himself put 2 years into making this fragrance as he wanted to make one more women’s fragrance to represent his Mother. The blackcurrant extracts are very rarely used in perfume but they smell totally different on the skin.

The bottle is presented beautifully with a gold ring around the top which represents his mothers gold wedding ring and the lid is a black stone which comes from the island off Italy she is from Piacenza.

I love this fragrance its a very classy elegant and fresh fragrance but has got a very unusual scent.

It ranges in 3 different sizes with prices ranging from €54.99 to €99.99.

Personally I don’t think this has a age group I am 22 and I absolutely love it but I have customers 50 plus buying it so it really does range.

Trilogy Age Proof CoQ10 Booster Serum

4022713_Trilogy_Coq10_Booster_SerumThis might just be my favourite product ever, a bold statement, but let me explain to you the reasoning behind it. I have suffered from very dry skin for years, particularly on my nose and forehead. I have tried pretty much every lotion and potion going to combat it but nothing ever really improved it in the way I hoped it would. I was sick of my foundation going flaky during the day, and how dry my skin looked in general. That is until I started using Trilogy Age Proof CoQ10 Booster Serum (€29.99).

In truth I would describe it as more of an oil than a serum, but whatever way you want to describe it, it works. It comes in a small glass bottle with what looks like a medicine dropper on the inside. You can use this to put small beads of the product on your face to massage in. You really only need a small bit as a little goes a long way, and it smells quite nice. It doesn’t take long to apply and you can see it smooth out your skin as soon as you apply it.

I started using it a few weeks ago, I put it on one night before bed and I can honestly say I noticed a big difference the next morning. My skin already looked a lot better, the dryness was already starting to go and it felt smoother than it normally did. Since then I have been using it every night before I go to bed and every morning when I wake up. I have noticed a huge difference already in the overall appearance of my skin. It claims on the bottle that in can reduce the signs of premature ageing and deliver a glowing radiant complexion. While I can’t vouch for the ageing claims as I haven’t been using it that long, I can verify that it delivers a glowing radiant complexion.

I would highly recommend this for anyone who suffers from dry skin like I did, or just wants to give their skin a boost. My only regret is that I didn’t start using this sooner. I don’t think that this serum will ever leave my skin care regime.

Foundations – New Premium & Mass Market Choices!

With the cosmetic market constantly bringing new versions of foundations and concealers to our attention, it can be really hard to know what is out there for you!

A good foundation can vary in price from a mass market foundation such as the new Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation retailing at €7.99 to a premium brand such as Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation which retails at €42.99.

These products are tailored to different skincare needs and work affectively for different ages and skin types.

The Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousserimmel Foundation is a great product, especially for those with an oily skin type as the matte effect really insures that this product is long lasting – I tested it by wearing it to the gym which really showed it durability! The product stayed on well after a lot of sweating and running around which made me think it’s a great product for a night out on the tiles!!

The Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation is a silkier foundation which gives a great shine and lightness to the skin on application. I found it covered the dark circles under clarinsmy eyes well and my skin still felt soft and moisturized after wearing this foundation for the day.

While a good foundation doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg, good cosmetics are an investment in your skin as well as having a regular skincare regime! I personally prefer the Clarins foundation in this case as my skin tends to be slightly dry and this helped keep my skin conditioned as well as covered but I would recommend the Rimmel Stay Matte Mousse Foundation for oiler skin as its staying power is really great!

Skincare Hero of the Month – Trilogy Rosapene Night Cream

Having heard a lot lately about the benefits of using a night cream as opposed to a standard moisturiser each night, I recently decided to test the theory with the recently launched Trilogy Rosapene Night Cream, €29.99. trilogy

Being naturally cynical, I read up about the product and how it has additional benefits that a standard face cream wouldn’t have which focuses on nourishing and regenerating the skin as we rest.

The theory behind the product is that night time is the ideal time to give the skin a chance to restore itself leaving you with silky smooth skin each morning with the help of the trademarked Trilogy Rosapene Oil.

While I wasn’t sure whether I would find any benefit from the product, I started using it daily – each night after cleansing my skin before heading off to sleep.

I immediately noted how rich and silky the cream was on application and the smell was simply divine.

The following morning I expected my skin to feel the same as it would every morning but I was very pleasantly surprised. My skin was still really soft and silky to touch as if I had only applied the cream even though I had applied it the night before!

I’m a sucker for trying different products but I usually get bored quickly and move onto something else but I have completely incorporated this product into my skincare regime.

I recently went abroad without it and instantly noticed how dry my skin was by not having it at hand to put on before bed…  And since that moment on I have lived happily ever after with my Rosapene Night Cream which is why it’s my Skincare Hero Product!

Are you afraid of Makeup?

Over the years I have noticed that there are a lot of women who are afraid of makeup!! Yes some grown women are actually terrified of the stuff!!!

The usual reasoning behind this phenomenon:

  • Makeover gone wrong!(perhaps the makeup artist didn’t listen to what you wanted)
  • Sensitive to a product in a particular brand, (perhaps the consultant sold you the wrong product for your skin type)
  • Not sure how to use the product?
  • Wasting money on the wrong product!

However I am here to help you!!

I will start off with a product that is really, really simple and quick to use.
For a natural day time look!!

bbBeauty Balm Cream 

  1. Who can use it?! Anyone who wants a light coverage!!
  2. How to apply it?! After you cleanse, moisturise with a damp sponge however I prefer my hand!!

My favourite discovery recently for a lady on a budget is Rimmel BB cream(SPF 25)

  1. Ideal for holidays, walkers, joggers, Mum’s on the school run, students or any busy lady.
  2. I tried and tested it recently while having a swim down in the 40 foot, and it worked great.
