Hydrate The Skin with B. Skincare Facial Spritz…

Hey there my lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

There is nothing like a gorgeous cooling facial spritz to give the skin a pick me up, and I have two beauties to share with you today. They are both from the B. Skincare range at Superdrug, in store and online. This is the B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz and The B. Hydrated Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz.

I’ll start with the Vitamin facial Spritz, which is my favourite of the two. It’s got some really gorgeous ingredients in there, including  Caffeine, Vitamin C and Cucumber Juice which helps to revitalise, brighten and generally pep up tired lack lustre skin, and I so need it at the moment too. It has a refreshing fragrance which helps to pep up the senses too, especially first thing in the morning after cleansing. It’s also really cooling which has been especially great for the hot muggy weather we have going on in the UK right now. How have I been using the  spritz? After cleansing I spritz 2 pumps worth, in an X shape over my face, followed by the Superdrug Nourishing Gel moisturiser. Review is HERE. Both products together helps to give my skin a much brighter look. The spritz is also perfect to use over the top of makeup as a pick me up during the day, it helps to give a fresher look, just remember not to rub your face while the spritz is still damp on your face, or your foundation will come off, yup I did that, good job my family don’t judge me ha ha. You can find the B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz at Superdrug HERE.

Next is the B. Hydrated Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz. Containing also, soothing Witch Hazel as well as being packed with Hyaluronic Acid, it’s perfect to give the skin a thorough deep down moisturisation without leaving the pores feeling clogged. It helps to make the skin look more radiant and plumped up, great for me on the days when my skin is feeling a little drier than usual. I mainly use this one in my night time routine after cleansing, and then apply my night cream or overnight mask. This facial spritz can also be used during the day over the top of makeup as a refresher, it’s a handy size to carry in your handbag too. You can find the B. Hydrated Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz at Superdrug HERE.

Right now in Superdrug there is better than half price on selected B. and Superdrug skincare, so great if you want to get stocked up on beautiful Vegan friendly products.

‘Tis The Season For Weddings… Gorgeous Summer Makeup With B.

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa..

Be a blushing bride this Summer with a beautiful and natural makeup, the trend that Meghan Markle chose to wear for her wedding to Prince Harry just a few weeks ago. I think we all tend to go for much less makeup during the heat of Summer, even if we aren’t a bride or going to a wedding. Summer is the time to let the skin glow, keeping the base really light without too much heavy contouring, or even just no contour at all. That’s just my opinion, I rarely contour to be honest with you.

I do love my skin to look radiant though, and with the help of these pretties from B. Makeup which are available on the High Street at Superdrug, or online at Superdrug, it’s easy to glow! The first such product to help give a pretty luminosity to the skin would be a lightweight silk foundation and I have used the B. Makeup Flawless Silk Foundation I have a review HERE. Next I would add a bit of a highlighter, I like one that will give me pretty glow but without being shiny and glittery. The ideal one for me is the Radiance Powder.

I love this one, it’s actually multi – purpose  with the 5 different shades within that can be used separately to blush and highlight or even use them as eyeshadows! I did however just use my brush through all of the colours and applied it to top of the cheekbones. It really does give me a pretty glow when the light catches. It’s lightweight and you can build it up to get an even brighter glow. The shade I have is Peachy, it’s a more natural finish for me, it also comes in a more bronze shade, Bronzed too. Find the one you prefer HERE.

Next a pretty flush of colour on the cheeks and B. Makeup powder blushers are gorgeous for just that. This shade is “I Like To Mauve It” and it’s quite a delicate shade perfect for Summer. This blusher is so soft and delicate it does literally glide onto the skin without any effort, it blends out beautifully and it can be built up to the intensity you like, and you don’t need a lot of product on your brush either, a little goes a long way. I have already reviewed the blusher if you would like to see that, HERE.  Find a blusher in your shade  HERE.

Lips during the Summer can look dry and cracked due to dehydration, so drink that water and pamper the lips with a lip scrub and use a lip balm or lip oil to keep them soft. If you are attending a wedding, or are the leading lady, you will need your lip colour to last. The B. Makeup Lip Liner is perfect for that, it’s matte and it’s non drying. Use it to outline the lips before applying your lipstick, I tend to slightly over draw my lips to give them a fuller appearance. (One of these days I will say sod it and put my makeup photos on my blog!) Using the lip liner, as an older lady my lipstick doesn’t bleed into any lines. I always smudge my lip liner with a lip brush to give a softer edge, the B. Makeup Lip Liner does blend nicely. This shade is called “Rosy” and there are 6 shades to choose from. Find your shade HERE.

The B. Makeup Velvet Matte Lipstick in the shade “Frow” is a gorgeous “your lips but better shade”. I wasn’t a big fan of matte lipsticks but this is a different matte lipstick from others that I’ve used. This contains Shea Butter and rather than being drying on the lips it’s hydrating instead. It does glide on the lips beautifully and the pigment is amazing. Once it’s on the lips rather than looking totally matte it does seem to have a creamy looking sheen to it, and it doesn’t appear to make my thinning lips look any thinner either. It’s also really comfortable to wear, it doesn’t feel as though it’s “cracking” on my lips, some matte lipsticks just feel that way on me. One thing I do like about matte lipstick is the longevity of wear, and this lasts all day. It leaves a really pretty stain on my lips like I had been eating red berries, and I found it’s best removed with an oil based makeup remover. I think that this really is the perfect lipstick for a Summer makeup/wedding, it would probably last all day, maybe not melt off in the heat of a sunny day! You can find the one for you HERE.

Add a bit of glorious sheen to the corners of the inner eye, add a touch of glimmer to the top lip on the cupids bow to add pout, you can even pop some to the middle of your lips to make them look fuller too. The B. Makeup Pigment and this is the shade Steel is so versatile. I have used it on my eyelids, not above the crease as it’s too shimmery for me, it’s lovely to blend for a pretty wash of shimmery colour, either on it’s own or over the top of another colour. Quite simply a multi tasker in your makeup bag, use it anywhere you want to add shimmer. It has a shaker delivery system to simply shake a touch of product into the lid to use. There are 8 gorgeous shades to choose from, so perfect for that Summer glistening. Find the shade you like HERE.

I hope you all have a fabulous Summer!

Optimum PhytoEnergise Refreshing Eye Gel….

Hey my lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

Well this does exactly what it says on the tube, it is hugely refreshing! Used in my morning routine, it’s an eye opener! (sorry) This is the Optimum PhytoEnergise Refreshing Eye Gel..

It’s got that Early Boost seaweed based Taurine within this clear eye gel. ( You can read about Early Boost in my post about the Optimum PhytoEnergise Glycolic Cleansing Pads HERE) Helps with tired skin that’s in need of a boost. There’s Hyaluronic Acid for helping to moisturise and add firmness to the eye area, making for a much firmer smoother looking skin. Also in there is wonderful Euphrasia Officinalis Extract also known as EyeBright, which helps to calm and soothe.

This lightweight refreshing eye gel is in a tube and has a very cooling metal rollerball tip which you use to apply the gel to the eye area, it’s really very cooling and so soothing when massaged lightly onto the skin, I love it! I usually just pat the gel in with my ring finger once I’ve applied from the tube. My under eyes are immediately hydrated and smoothed and ready for makeup, and my eyes feel more awake and refreshed. Does it help with dark circles? I can’t comment as I don’t have an issue with dark circles, I don’t have very bad deep set wrinkles even at the age I am now (58) all I can tell you is that this eye gel is so very nice and I’m very happy with what it’s doing for my under eyes with the smoothness and the hydration.

Right now in Superdrug it’s better than half price on selected Optimum products, including this eye gel HERE.

Thank you for stopping by and reading today.

Optimum PhytoEnergise….3 in 1 Moisture Balm, Primer and Mask

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

My skin sometimes looks like it could do with a bit of a pick me up because it can look a bit dull and grey, and regular readers will know that I’m a huge fan of Superdrug own brand products and I have been trying out the newest of their Optimum range of skincare, PhytoEnergise. Containing Early Boost, an active ingredient, Taurine which is extracted from Seaweed and is said to help revive and pep up the complexion, reducing the signs of tired looking skin. This is Optimum PhytoEnergise 3 in 1 Moisture Balm, Primer and Mask.

This is a 30ml size tube, when I squeezed out some product to apply to my skin I discovered that a little really does go a long way. It smells gorgeous, very fresh fragrance and it’s said that this will give you instant radiance which to be honest I didn’t notice. What I did notice though was the instant hydration and smoothness of my skin. I wanted to give it a go as a primer, so I patted a little extra onto my cheeks where I have large pores, on my chin where I have some old acne scars from my teens, I always hate those. My pores and scars didn’t disappear fully but the two areas looked smoother, and it holds onto my foundation too, rather nicely. I have used it as a mask by just applying it thickly to my skin and leaving it for about 10 minutes then wiped off the excess. I could feel that it’s quite cooling and tingly on my face, and I just loved how soft and smooth my skin felt afterwards too. If I was to criticize this balm in any way I would just say that it needs to be a bigger tube, and I shall be using it only when I wear makeup, for me personally it’s perfect as a hydrating primer.

Right now in Superdrug this is half price, HERE. And also on selected products in the Optimum range of skincare.

Thank you for stopping by and reading today.
