Skincare heavyweight, Emma Hardie has recently launched a new eye serum to the Midas Touch family, dubbed a “lightweight yet powerful anti-ageing formula”.
The eyes are the first place on the face that start to show signs of ageing. With that in mind, I try to pay a bit of extra attention to the area as prevention is definitely better than cure.
Over the past year or two, I’ve gotten much better at remembering to apply eye cream at night and I was excited to add this new product to my collection!
If you seen my post a little while ago featuring my dry skin hero products, you will have seen a rave review about the Antipodes Aura Honey Mask. If you didn’t see it, why not? Jokes. But it can be viewed here.
Since trying the amazing Aura mask, I have fallen in love with the brand and their products as a whole. Everything is nutrient rich, natural and organic so you are using the best ingredients when using this brand. You can’t not like this brand. Their ethos is very eco friendly, their packaging is fully recyclable and biodegradable. They believe in sustainable cultivation of local ingredients from New Zealand. They’re just all round, good, environmentally friendly, eggs!
In the interests of beauty blogging, I have tried out a number of products from the brand over the past few months and I’m ready to give you all the low down. Spolier alert, I love it all.
I’ve disliked my lips for years. I mean, they were okay, but they were naturally thin and my top lip would disappear pretty much entirely should I give a toothy smile – not ideal. I had toyed with the idea of lip fillers for quite some time, but always panicked and chickened out when it came to the crunch.
Since working with Therapie Clinic recently with my course of Image Peels, when the brand wanted to continue to grow our relationship and offered me the chance to try out fillers, it felt right.
For me personally, getting fillers was a way to increase my confidence and feel better about myself. I’m not telling you all to go out and pump yourself full of everything you can. But it’s the 21st century, if you want to change something about yourself and it will make you feel better, go for it. I’m totally supportive of that!
A few weeks ago, I shared that my skin had become rather dry of late. With dryness usually comes dullness – an awful combination!! For me, the best way to combat dull skin is to ensure you have a good exfoliation system within your skincare routine so, when the amazing gals at Alpha H sent across the newest launch, an exfoliating and resurfacing cleanser, I couldn’t wait to test it out to see if it could bring back my healthy glow.
Everything that Alpha H seem to touch turns to gold. Their Liquid Gold is second to none at clarifying and brightening the skin and I have heard amazing things about their Instant Facial and Balancing Eye Complex.
So did this new launch live up to the extensive claims?
Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing balm is an absolute cult beauty product. I don’t know anybody who has tried it and not loved it, I’m certain that you will find a pot of this cult balm in every skincare guru’s bathroom cabinet. I myself am a huge fan of her skincare products, and find that anything that i’ve tried in the past has truly worked and delivered what it promised.
So, when I was offered the chance to try out the newest launch from the brand, I jumped at the chance.
Is it going to be another cult product?
Recently, I’ve noticed that my skin has been a lot drier. Ordinarily it is normal so when the dryness appeared it was super noticeable to me. I shopped my skincare stash for products that target dryness and I think I’ve found some real dry skin hero products along the way that I just had to share with you!
I’m a skincare junkie. There’s no denying it. And if there is a cure, I actually don’t want it.
Trying out new skincare products and lines is one of my absolute favourite things to do. That joy of discovering a new hero product is so exciting to me. So when the lovely guys at Ophrys contacted me and asked me to try out their new line, I couldn’t say no.
The brand is a dermal skincare company based in Switzerland and the products are all very sciencey utilising the brand’s patented hydration technology, Mini Hax!
So what does that mean?
In a nutshell the products use that gem of an ingredient, hyaluronic acid, except this one is a low molecular hyaluronic acid. Put simply, the low molecular formula penetrates way deeper into the skin’s layers and than a standard hyaluronic acid which means much deeper hydration!
I met with the lovely Adam from the brand a while back and I have to be honest, he was beyond generous when he gave me the samples to try out. I have put them properly through their paces now so I’m ready to share my thoughts! (more…)
