Skincare

Hello!

Eye believe in miracles… Creamy miracles!

Yes, that’s right… Eye cream/creme review time.

It’s Friday, the day to go out on the town after work… So, here’s a great tip. Look awake past 6pm by applying eye cream!

My eye cream of choice is by Yves Rocher. I love Yves Rocher. A bit like Rocha John Rocha but not because it’s Yves Rocher.

Your favourite day cream … improved version!

Its rich formula releases the ideal dosage of oils beneficial to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and nourish the skin. Your skin is so soft, smooth and well hydrated throughout the day.

Creamy AF! Look woke. Stay woke. Apply cream under the eyes. It helps with dark circles and in my case: eyebags. I’ve got two of those. PARDON?

So, there you go. It helps with wrinkles and eye bags, oh and it keeps you woker than a resident of Woking, U.K.

Speaking of nights out, you can apply this in the day, but they have a night cream too.

My rating? 5 starz ’cause I heard Jay Z uses it.

Kiehl’s has always been my favourite brand of skincare… Although I’ve regularly mentioned Lush Cosmetics previously, Kiehl’s will remain my first choice – because I will never forget how it saved my skin and cured it from acne.

Kiehl’s appeals to me because, like Lush, it’s made from natural and herbal ingredients.

No, I don’t even need to write about their Midnight Recovery serum as it’s an award-winning concentrate that speaks for itself…

However, I don’t write to promote, I write to express my opinion. With that in mind, I’m going to express it.

Although it’s been on my dressing table for a while, I decided to start using it consistently about a two weeks ago. I particularly like the fact that this serum is suitable for dry, combo and oily skins.

One night. A few drops. Younger-looking skin by morning.

Like thousands of fellow patrons, use a few drops of Kiehl’s UK & Ireland #1 best-seller, Midnight Recovery Concentrate, every night for younger-looking skin by morning. Wake up to fresher-feeling skin, which is more toned, and with improved radiance.This formula works by enhancing your skin’s natural night-time recovery process – so make your skin work for you while you sleep! Additionally the formula is not only paraben-free, but also 99.8% natural-derived. A few of the key ingredients include Lavender Essential Oil, Primrose Oil, and Kiehl’s-signature ingredient squalane, derived from olives.And that’s not all – it’s made from a recyclable glass bottle, dropper and plastic squeeze top in a protective 100% recycled board carton.

Process: wash your face. Prime it. Apply three drops across your face. Night moisturise. Go to sleep. Wake up and wash it off.

Result: over time, your skin will look repaired, replenished and moisturised. But, results are visible upon first use.

My verdict: It’s brilliant. Expensive (£38 for 30ml) but well worth it. You can get testers to try before deciding whether it’s for you. I’d give it a 5*.

As I’ve alluded throughout this post, it’s the greatest overnight serum I’ve used. All Kiehl’s products are intense (in terms treatment) but sensitive enough to suit all skin-tones and types.

I’d heard so much about this serum and have wanted to try it for ages but was reluctant to. However, I ended up biting the bullet and purchasing it yesterday. Yes, I know I shouldn’t be hasty with posting a review so soon… But why can Jenny be hasty and me not?

Apparently, this is an overnight miracle and one that starts working instantly. People raved about it, so I wanted to see what the fuss was about. I did. Yesterday.

The fuss was about something INCREDIBLE. In a word, that’s exactly what it is. INCREDIBLE.

I’ve always said that investing in something that goes a long way is never not going to be worth it, and I wasn’t wrong.

This serum, which is packed with ten essential oils, really replenishes the skin and revitalises it overnight. You wake up with new skin. I can’t wait to see the effects after continued use…

Watch this space. Bracelet yourselves! HELLO?!

Oh, and Happy Easter. Hope this renewed Spring season brings all that you desire.

I love you.

Morning!

I’ve been absent from blogging because I’ve been very busy with work, but I’ve found some time to blog – so here goes nothing… 😊

Oh, and before I go any further… Happy New Year! My new year’s resolution this year to stay grounded in the now. It’s so hard to get stop ourselves from getting caught up in what may or may not come, that we lose sight of what’s already here. I’m not doing that anymore.

Final bit of news before I get into the real reason behind my post… I’ll be reinventing Beauty Bae in February in February. I’m keeping the theme (layout) and logo, because I love them, I’m just going to be honing in on the lifestyle topic, and being less all over the place with my writing, what I cover etc… I’m undecided whether I’m going to be working on a blank canvas or keeping the previous posts. I want to start improving my image game too… Might start using stock photos of things, because I don’t think I can justify taking 700 photos of a cream just to get the right angle right. One thing you’ll definitely be getting from me – consistency. Consistency is the key, and I’m about to be start being consistent. This’ll mean new posts on a more regular basis. I’m excited.

Now for the moment of truth… Hearing about my new (albeit using old products) winter skin miracle regimen. I’d like to re-introduce/remind you of a few few products that you may have forgotten about… Let The Good Times Roll (cleanser), Eau Roma Water (toner) and Gorgeous (moisturiser). All of these can be found at Lush stores nation/internation-wide and they’re bloomin’ brilliant!

I cannot tell you how dry my skin was feeling prior to sticking to this regimen… I was using Ocean Salt, Tea Tree water and Enzymion (all excellent products too) previously but I think those worked better on my skin in summer months. Alternatively, it could just be that they stopped working. According to dermatology science, it’s good to switch up your routine every now and again, because our skin is like anything… For example, if you eat the same foods day in day out, there’ll come a time when they stop serving your body… All the nutrients from them will become redundant.

So, anyway… I recommend that you give Let The Good Times Roll, Eau Roma Water and Gorgeous a go… You won’t regret it. Yes, the price of Gorgeous is pretty hefty, but I don’t believe you can put a price on good skin. Also, it lasts a very long time, as a pea sized amount of this moisturiser goes a long way. It smells Gorgeous, feels Gorgeous and looks Gorgeous too. If you like pineapples, this one’s definitely for you.

Oh, and the best mask – you ask? Prince of Darkness.

As I mentioned briefly before, my love for the botanicals is actually becoming out of control… I don’t know if I’ll wake up tomorrow and find branches where my bones used to be, but for now – know that I smell like tea tree, a bit a lot.

Right, back to Australin BodyCare, not that we were on the subject to start with but, hey, ho! Hi, ho! On with this blog post I go *whistles to the Seven Dwarves*. 🎶

Legit, currently and before currently, I always (never) asked myself if there was some sort of malfunction at my birth… When I consider and ponder this, you’ll all be the firsts to know.

I smell like tea tree. That’s all I really wanted to say… Tea Tree smells somewhat potent. Therefore, I don’t exactly know why I’m writing a whole blog post about it… I mean, it’s nothing to write home (or shout from the rooftops about). In essence, I smell like PG Tips before they became loose leaf tea bags… That’s it.

I bought the body lotion, shower gel and scrub. I’m going to be real with you, it doesn’t help when you smell like other people’s sweat. I don’t know what you heard, but it’s almost impossible to travel on TfL without leaving the tube with every single person who shared that carriage with’s sweat and germs…

It’s like a little disgusting gift that TfL give you for topping up your Oyster and using their sometimes always delayed and/or on-strike service. (Especially if you lead the life I do and have people coughing and/or sneezing in your face at every opportunity they get.)

Join me here tomorrow- same time, same place, where I’ll divulge into the contents of the times I caught TfL flu aplenty.

Again, let’s cast our minds back to what we were discussing before I went on the germ-infested tangent that is TfL… You might need to use more than one body wash, because if you use it on its own, you’ll smell like a BO’d tree. No matter how much I love trees, that – right there is the point where I declare myself “out” – like they do on Dragon’s Den.

Australian BodyCare’s packaging is pretty bog standard. Pretty and bog standard. I love the colour blue, so there you go… It’s blue. It looks like something you’d find in a bathroom… What next?!

Did I like using Australian BodyCare? It’s not the most incredible product I’ve ever applied on my skin but it’s okay… It does the job. I’m just here for smelling like a hot liquified Kew Gardens.

Thanks you, SPICEBEAN! You’re also every damn thing!

Xxx

P.S. I bought seeds to be planted in my garden because I love botanicals so much… Check back here in Spring (or before) to read all about it.
