Be Barefaced Multi Corrective 3 in 1 Eye Gel. Are you brave enough to Bareface it?

Back in my 20’s I thought I was a Goddess, yet I didn’t treat myself like one and I certainly didn’t treat my skin well at all. I am lucky and I have always been blessed with clear skin, even at school I skipped the spotty stage, I was way more in the awkward and yet to find myself group. I never used to clean my skin properly, a baby wipe would suffice, and the only moister my skin received was when I got it wet in the shower.

I thought, nay I KNEW I was going to be young forever. No one was going to make me grow up, no siree….. and I carried on my merry way. However, a few years ago my mirror started lying to me. It started showing lines and wrinkles, bags dark circles and puffy things where puffy things had never been before! I scolded it, and sat it in the corner to think about what it was doing to me. I didn’t sign up for it to turn into one of these circus mirrors! Then, as I was about to leave the house, I caught sight of myself in the downstairs mirror, same lines, wrinkles and puffy stuff. I freaked and did what all gals do in a crisis of massive proportion….. I called my mum and cried.

Needless to say, after killing herself laughing at my first world issues she scolded me for taking such bad care of my skin, and as mums normally do she had a point. So I set about trying to find all the things that I should have been putting on my skin in my 20’s, and hoping I wasn’t too late!

I have been through many an eye cream since this nightmarish experience, but not one has touched the magical powers found within Be Barefaced Multi Corrective 3 in One Eye Gel. It boasts that its three powerful ingredients of Marine Collagen, Vitamin E and Argan oil will work its mojo and brighten the eye contour area and beat away dark circles with a metaphorical stick. ‘Too good to be true’ I thought, “going to be a gazillion pounds’ I thought…. Oh intermerwebland how wrong I was. This stuff is amazing, epic and awesome in one little bottle!

 

It took a few days of me using it once a day, but my dark circles were so visibly reduced, my other half accused me of applying makeup before having a shower!! I started using this twice a day and I swear down that some of my finer lines have gone. My under eyes love me, and I owe it all to this little beauty.

Its a gel formula, which I am new to and a little goes a long long way. Half a pump does both my eyes easily, a whole pump and my eyes are swimming in gel! It absorbs into the skin beautifully, and doesn’t leave a nasty sticky residue like some do. Best of all it doesn’t affect my make up, which for me is a mahoosive plus as some eye creams made my under eye make up slide away. As an added Brucey Bonus you get a cute little bear on the packaging.

If you can’t tell, I really and truly am in LOVE. I stumbled upon this on Amazon, but you can pick it up direct from them too at no extra cost. They have loads and loads of amazing looking things to try. I just wish my budget stretched to be able to pick up a few more this month. Be Barefaced is a born and bred UK company. Starting in Brixton, London, they are now a leading online skincare company. I can almost tell that I am going to love everything from this company.

So I hope you youngsters have learnt a thing or two from my tale of woe. Don’t be a twit like me, look after what you got now, so it can look after you later on in life.

Until next time intermerweb land,

Best make up remover I have ever tried.

You will never see me without a full face of make up. Not because I feel I NEED to wear make up, but because I love to play with it and experiment with colours. I have never been artistic, but I am creative, and I see make up as a creative outlet which if you get wrong, washes off at the end of the day. No harm, no foul….. right? I love to paint my face with an array of wonderful eyeshadows, blushes and highlighters. I adore learning new techniques, absorbing everything that the world of make up can throw at me. If only I had a bigger budget, then my make up collection would be far better than it is now, although I am sure my other half would argue that it is big enough already.

One thing that comes with wearing a full face, or make up of any kind, is the removal of it. In the world of waterproof this that and the other, there are a fair number of lotions and potions that profess to remove the gunk and make your face glow. Lord knows my dressing table is as full of bottles as it is with lipsticks. I was getting frustrated with the daily slog of removal, of products just not doing what they claimed they would, and quite frankly bored of the same old stuff. I was certainly finding that the skin around my eyes was taking a battering as I was scrubbing at them trying to get the layers of mascara from my lashes.

That is, until I found Clinque Take the Day off balm. Ohmygeeze, I mean seriously, this stuff is amazing. It is very rare that I am raving after one use of a product, but seriously if you buy nothing else in 2017 (and I include food and bills in this!!!) then you NEEEEED to get one of these pots of magic. You will thank me, I promise you. This little pot of magic looks like a solid, but once you scoop out a small amount and rub it between your hands, it turns into an oil like consistency. Simply rub your hands over your face, focusing on the areas where you have more stubborn make up (for example, your eyes or lips if you have a liquid lip on). Your make up will simply melt away. I wash my face with a damp washcloth, and carry on with my routine. It has reduced the amount of time I spend removing my face, without compromising on the actual cleaning of it, and the way it feels the following morning is as soft as my most amazing heated lap yeti (ahhh I bet I caught your eye. I will explain all in another post soon I promise)

 

It comes in at £22.00 on Clinque’s site direct, but with 125ml of product it will last you a long while making the cost not so steep. It’s light weight, non drying or greasy and doesn’t clog your pores, which is also a bonus. It really is suitable for all skin types, which means you won’t hit any restrictions if you want to pick up this bad boy. Side note, not all counters stock this product so I had to get mine from the webpage, but it allowed me to pick up a few additional extra freebies in the form of a Take the Day off Make up liquid remover, Liquid Facial Soap and a Moisture Surge moisturiser, which I have yet to dig into as they are perfect travel size and as I am going to be going away in April I thought I best try and keep them for then.

Until next time party people,

XO’s
