Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream.

Wednesday, 19 July 2017

I have heard so many good things about the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, I thought it was about time I tested it out for myself. 
The first thing I noticed about this product is that it isn't really a cream. I'd say it is more of a gel consistency. At first I wasn't sure how to apply it as it was to thick to rub into my skin. I later found out (after layering a shit ton on my face and wondering why it was so heavy) that it should really be warmed up in your hands and patted into the skin. Since that (revolutionary) step, I have been loving this product. I mainly use it for my dry skin around my mouth and forehead but it can be used for chapping, peeling, sunburn and scrapes. It also says on the bottle that it can be used for the brows, dry hands and to smooth cuticles and nails... what ever that means?

This product isn't for you if you don't like a heavy consistency and feel to the skin. I put this cream on before I go to bed and let it soak in during the night. Otherwise it just makes my face look super shiny and greasy. Oh, and the scent? It smells slightly rosey but to be honest, it just smells like a spa if you know what I mean. I have linked the scent with relaxing now, so as soon as I pop it on I am ready to drift off to sleep.

And finally the packaging, I mean to be fair it doesn't offend me but its nothing special. It is basically just like a swanky 50g toothpaste tube, but as long as the product inside works it really doesn't bother me. And trust me, the product really does work. I have deffo noticed a difference with my skin, it isn't as dry and my make up applies to my face a lot nicer.

Have you ever tried this product?

June Favourites.

Sunday, 9 July 2017

I am just going to come out and say it... It's going to be Christmas before we know it! I know I said the C word in July but oh my word, where are the months going? Before we know it, it will be the new year. Anyway for now, we'll just stick to the June favourites, eh?

My first fave of this month is Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel in the colour Awe. At first I was a bit scared of using a gel on my brows but it is the easiest product to work with ever. It is so much easier to use than powder, and it gives the brows a much more defined look. The colour is the perfect ashy brown to match with my hair and skin tone. To apply the gel I have been using the Illamasqua angled brush, again this gives the brows a super sharp & neat look, which I love. I also love how dense and small the bristles are, it picks up the perfect amount of product to distribute throughout the brow.

My next favourites are a few homey bits, which I shared on Insta a few weeks ago. I mean, it's a bit random to have a tray in my favourites but when its this pretty how can I not? I picked this gold hammered metal tray up at Sainsbury's for £9, bargain right? It is actually a serving tray but I think it looks so chic styled with simple accessories. Speaking of accessories, I have been loving fake greenery. With going from my mums to my dads it's getting hard to keep my plants and flowers alive. Fake plants are a great alternative, my fave being eucalyptus. I just picked mine up from The Range. It was dead cheap too, only £1.99.

What are your June faves?
