EpiSpa Organic Lighter Brighter Illuminating Moisturiser with spf 25

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I have been sent another beautiful product from the fabulous people at epiSpa who are situated on Harley Street, world-famous as the private health care area of London. They have created a range of organic beauty products made from nutrient-rich natural organic ingredients, all are natural plant extracts which are proven to be great for our skins. The product I have to share with you today is the Organic Lighter Brighter Illuminating Moisturiser, which has an spf 25.

With its gorgeous metallic packaging it keeps all the gorgeousness of the product within, cool. What is the gorgeousness within? They are the most beautiful organic ingredients that can be found in a moisturiser! Manuka Honey, it’s in there to help the skin with regeneration, because honey is a humectant it also holds onto moisture in the skin without making it oily. Coconut oil, one of my favourite ingredients is in there because it will help to restore dry skin, helps to strengthen the skins tissue as it absorbs quickly. Pomegranate seed oil helps to restore the brightness and luminosity of the skin. Then there is a plant based natural skin whitening agent, Tyrostat which can help with the reduction of age spots and pigmentation in three weeks.

As with the eye cream that I reviewed a while back, I’ll leave a link to that at the end of this post, the Lighter Brighter Illuminating Moisturiser smells amazing, it’s got a refreshing cucumber fragrance to it, and it feels just as refreshing to use too! It glides onto the skin easily and sinks in almost straight away, there’s no stickiness or residue left behind on the skin it’s just soft moisturised and ready for makeup. My skin is glowing after using this moisturiser for the last few weeks, and I’ve been using it day and night. Some illuminating skincare has so much glitter particles in, but there are no such thing in this gorgeous product. If you like your day cream/moisturisers with SPF then you will find a 25 spf within this. I LOVE the epiSpa Organic Lighter Brighter Illuminating moisturiser and it’s one that I would recommend to my friends and family. You can find it HERE.

Omorovicza Instant Perfection Serum…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

 I was lucky enough to receive the Omorovicza Instant Perfection Serum to trial and then review here on my blog. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now so I thought I would come and share with you just exactly what I think.

One thing I adore about Omorovicza is their wonderful packaging, everything that I have had sent to me has been in beautiful frosted glass jars and bottles, apart from my Moor Cream Cleanser which was is a huge tube! This is no exception, the serum is in the frosted glass with a pump dispenser, which again I love, it gives the amount you need and it’s  hygienic too.

The Instant Perfection Serum is free from parabens, synthetic fragrance and colours. There is Narcissus stem cells within the serum to help brighten the skin, even out the skin tone and helps to sort out any sun damage too. There’s Hyaluronic acid which helps to plump up the skin and helps to retain moisture. All of the ingredients within the serum are made more potent by the Hungarian thermal water that is rich in minerals. It’s oil free so perfect for oily and combination skin types, but I need hydration for my skin and it gives me that too.

A lovely lightweight serum that takes care of my lines and even my large pores appear lessened after using. I always “press” a serum into my skin rather than massage it in, I find it works best that way. After applying, my skin does look very smooth hydrated and glowing, ready for the application of a moisturiser and makeup. I have however just used only a BB cream on top of the serum and it still keeps my skin hydrated during the day. A really lovely serum from Omorovicza HERE.

Ellora Beauty…… Intensive Eye Contour Serum

Hi loves, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I’ve another lovely natural skincare product from Ellora Beauty to share with you. This is the Intensive Eye Contour Serum. I love eye creams, especially those that say they are brightening like this one claims to do, but did it? Please read on….

Yet another incredibly lovely Ellora Beauty product that I’ve enjoyed trialling. At first I wasn’t so sure but the more I’ve used it the more I grew to love it. It’s a great size 15ml with a pump-action delivery system which I love, you get the correct amount of product to use, well normally anyway. I’ll explain more in just a moment. The ingredients within this eye serum are all in there to create a powerful treatment for the eye area. There’s  Swiss Apple Stem Cells, Vitamins, Mountain Tea, Damask Rose and Oat Extracts, Almond, Olive, Avocado and Borage Oils, and also an ingredient called BEAUTIFYE which I did have to research as I have never heard of it, and it’s basically  “the first active ingredient in the cosmetics industry that demonstrates a lifting action on sagging upper eyelids” says google. So there you go. The Ellora Intensive Eye Contour Serum is more like a cream in consistency and it’s white in colour, rather than a clear product.

I used the eye serum morning and night to trial it and used one full pump worth between both eyes. I used it all around the contour of each eye, and as I suffer from hooded eyelids that have occurred naturally through the aging process, I worked the serum upwards and outwards over the sagging part of my upper eyes, the brow bone area in effect. It feels so rich when applying, very cooling, very hydrating and made my eyes feel very awake (that’s a lot of very’s) After a few days and nights use I noticed that I was “breaking out” just under my eyebrows where I had place the serum to help lift the area. Not a problem, I figured that it was a little too rich for me so I just used less of the serum, after a day or so, the spots went and carried on using the serum but applied less of the product.

The Ellora Beauty Intensive Eye Contour Serum is a lovely product, I’ve enjoyed using it over the past few weeks and yes I have noticed the effectiveness of it. It does give a slight lift to my sagging eyebrow area, I can see a little more of my eyelid when looking in a mirror, but mainly it has given me intense hydration, smoothed out my lines and my eye area is looking a lot brighter and more awake. The little bit of darkness and puffiness that I have is diminished.

 Sounds good doesn’t it? If you would like to give it a go yourself, you can find it HERE.

Ellora Beauty has given me a 10% discount code to share with you, just use ELEGANTAGELESSBEAUTY  at the checkout.

A Few Empties, A Few Fails….

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty

I’ve got a few products to share with you that I’ve finished up and also a couple of “fails” as well, just a couple of things that I never really got on with in the long run. Let me start with the products that I’ve used up, and I’ve loved using every one of these products.

The Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser. Wow what an incredible cleanser this is. I have loved using it, mainly as my morning cleanse because the fragrance and the cooling sensation on the skin really wakens up the senses, plus gives an incredible deep cleanse and with the tiny Moor mud particles within, it’s a great exfoliating cleanser and readies the skin for other products/treatments. There is a full review HERE.

My last Empties post I had the Heaven Skincare Afternoon Tea Hand and Body Wash, now amongst my empties it pains me to say I have the matching Hand and Body Lotion all used up. I have loved using the lotion, so rich and creamy without stickiness and with a fragrance like no other, it literally brought Summer to my bathroom. It has been my handcream of choice when my hands have needed a bit of extra hydration too. I do have a full review HERE.

The wonderful Heaven Skincare Silver Bee Venom Mask is all used up too now. I have used this as an overnight mask, as a daytime moisturiser under makeup, and it’s the one face product that can be used right up to under the eyes without needing an eye cream. I’ve massaged my lips with it. This wonderful skincare product hydrates plumps and nourishes my skin, and I’m sorry that it’s all used up now, but I’m not crying too hard I still have my gold bee venom mask yet! There is a review if you would like to read it, just HERE.

As hard as I pump the pump on my beautiful epiSpa Organic Illuminating Eye Cream, I just cannot get anymore product out! This has been my go to eye cream when I wear a full face of makeup which included under eye concealer. I just found it perfect for brightening my under eyes without horrid glitter particles, my concealer never creases when I use this, and the skin under my eyes stays supple and hydrated too. My review is HERE.

So there has been a couple of “fails” I want to share with you too, those products that for me don’t draw me to reach for them on a regular basis.

Unfortunately The W7 In the Mood eye shadow palette looks gorgeous on the outside it looks like it’s going to be amazing when you look inside, but when using the eyeshadows I got nothing out of it, or it was hard work to use. The colours are lovely and right up my street, but pigment was just off and when I did get some colour payoff it was quite chalky and had some fallout. I liked this palette when I first got it, but having used it a few times, I realised that it’s not for me. My original review is HERE.

Yes you may be a little surprised to see an MUA Makeup Academy product here in my fails, regular readers will know that MUA are my favourite budget make up brand. But honestly I did love the Matte Perfect Primer for a while and it did the job, but after some time of using it I was getting breakouts on my chin, it was almost like the primer was clogging up my pores. It’s a lovely product of course it is, but it wasn’t for me unfortunately. I have had to swap to another  MUA primer instead now. If you would like to see my review of the Matte Perfect primer you can find it HERE.

So that’s my empties plus a couple of fails, thank you for reading today. Do you have Instagram and are you following me there? I’d love to have some new followers I’m HERE.

Heaven Skincare LIA Oil Serum.

Hey lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

I’m back to share with you my thoughts on the Heaven Skincare LIA Oil that was sent to me for review here on my blog.

As you can see the bottle is pretty special looking isn’t it? Inside the oil is pretty special too! The base oil ingredients are Organic Soya Bean, Carrot Oil, Jojoba, Rosehip, Grapeseed oils. Essential Oils packing a punch in the oil serum are Organic Rose Absolute, Neroli, Lavender and  Patchouli. It’s the fragrance of Lavender oil that hits me in the nose, my favourite floral smell ever, it’s just gorgeous. There is also Vitamins A and E within the oil serum too.

This intense oil serum is great for reducing redness and helps to calm Rosacea. I suffer from redness on my chin and cheeks, not too much but enough to make me want to conceal it when I go out, and since using the oil serum it has calmed down considerably. I’ve been using my oil mainly at night massaged into cleansed skin, then add my night cream or my Heaven Bee Venom mask on top. The following morning my skin is looking so radiant and glowing, and it’s not from hot flushes either! I have used my LIA oil serum during the day mixed into a moisturiser that’s from the high street to give the budget product more of a boost, and does it? Well yes it does. I have a high street Vitamin E day cream which I found to be unsuitable for my dry skin, it wasn’t moisturising enough, so I added some of the LIA oil Serum to it and now I can use it up because it’s working beautifully. There is absolutely no greasiness or slippery sticky skin from using the LIA oil, it sinks into the skin leaving it rejuvenated, nourished and pampered and very soft and smooth looking.

I’ve used the LIA oil serum in other ways too, massaged into my nails after removing polish to nourish them, and I also found it fantastic to smooth a little through the mid lengths of my hair! A gorgeous luxurious multi tasking oil serum! You can find the Heaven Skincare LIA Oil Serum on the website HERE.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil…

So I’m a bit late to the party when it comes to using this brand that is well-known among many a beauty blogger. This is Japanese brand DHC, who specialise in skincare using Virgin Olive Oil, one of the best ingredients for the upkeep of healthy young-looking skin, and this is the Deep Cleansing Oil where FYI, 1 is sold every 10 seconds worldwide, and that’s a fact!

The packaging is clean and simple looking, it’s a pump dispensing method while the bottle is plastic, great for me being so clumsy at the moment, it’s not going to break if I drop it, hey! The main ingredients are Olive Oil and there is also some Rosemary Oil in there too, it’s so rich in vitamins and antioxidants to help keep the skin looking and feeling nourished and hydrated after cleansing. It’s said it can tackle even the most waterproof of makeup, even waterproof mascara. So yay to that, I can use waterproof mascara, at last. (I need to curl my eyelashes you see, and a waterproof mascara will hold a curled lash the best) I just need to purchase one now. So how did I get on with this beautifully rich amber looking cleanser? Read on.

I used just one pump worth in  my hand, it’s not a thin runny oil so it didn’t run out of my fingers. I put my hands together to transfer some oil to my other hand too. I continued to massage the oil over my face and gently over my eyes. While I was massaging my face I noticed the fragrance, while not horrible or unpleasant it does smell like a rich oil, and I like it! I think I massaged my face and around my eyes for a couple of minutes I was thoroughly enjoying the cleansing oil experience. The DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is water-soluble, so I added a bit of water to my hands and massaged over my face where the oil turned a milky white. You can if you wish just completely rinse off the oil cleanser plus makeup and grime with water alone, but I do prefer to use a wet face flannel or muslin cloth to rinse off all types of cleanser, so I treated this exactly the same. Afterwards? Wow, I love how my face felt, it was clean, refreshed, smooth and not at all dry and tight, there was no trace of mascara left on my lashes, all eyeshadow was gone, primer, foundation and concealer all gone, absolutely amazing cleansing. I guess also, when used regularly the olive oil will nourish my eyelashes too, and for me that can be a good thing as it’s one of a number of things that is depressing me with the aging process, that my eye lashes have become sparse.

It looks like the DHC Cleansing Oil is on sale at the moment for just £21.60 on the UK website HERE.

My March Favourites!

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty my lovelies!

So here we are at the start of a new month, and at last it’s Springtime for us in the UK, and April is my birthday month too. I thought today I would share some products that I’ve loved in the month of March.

I have been feeling pretty down about things over the last few weeks and because of that my skin hasn’t been at it’s best. But I just give myself a 5 minute treatment using my Heaven Skincare Bee Peel and it looks and feels so much better. It looks a lot brighter, enlarged pores are less noticable and certainly a lot smoother looking. If you would like to see my full review of Heaven Skincare Bee Peel click HERE I’ll leave links at the end of this post to where you can purchase all my favourite products from.

I have had this palette from Makeup Revolution for ages and I decided to get it out for a play a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve not put it away again since. I’ve really enjoyed my Flawless palette, it’s a lovely mix of matte and shimmer powder eye shadows in a huge 32 pan palette, it’s gorgeous. If you would like to read a review you can find it HERE.

This amazing Moor cream cleanser  from Omorovicza is also fantastic to use as a deep cleansing mask. I massage the cleanser over my skin and leave it to sink in for about 15 minutes, then wash of with a face cloth. It really is so refreshing and cleansing and it’s going to be a favourite for a while. I have a full review HERE.

This is a gorgeous nude lipstick from Essence, it’s from the long lasting range in the shade number 26 and  called All Time Favourite. I haven’t written a review yet, there will be one coming soon however so I hope you will look out for that.

I feel like this Rose blusher from Milani is nearly always in my favourites posts, but I do love it and it’s my go to blusher, for being highly pigmented and matte which I love. You can read my review to see why I love it HERE

So that’s my March favourites, and I shall leave links below of where to shop for them if you fancy them for yourself. Wishing you a beautiful April!

Omorovicza Oxygen Booster

Omorovicza, voted Best International Skincare Brand at the Beauty Shortlist Awards 2017, and this product that I’m sharing with you won the Editors Choice award at the same ceremony, this is the Oxygen Booster.

So in essence this is a product that delivers oxygen to our skin through skincare. We need the addition of oxygen because it will help skin look brighter and more clear, it helps to unclog pores which then will make skin look fresher too. As the aging process progresses, oxygen levels in our body is lessened, which causes our skin to look dull and lifeless and by adding the oxygen booster into skincare it will look whole lot fresher, more glowing and new. I’ve been using my Omorovicza Oxygen Booster for some weeks now, and I can actually see a difference in the look of my skin.

This is an incredibly cooling and soothing gel like consistency and I love putting onto my skin every day. I have been using it underneath a High Street moisturiser during the day and also at night  underneath a night cream from another brand. Once again and as with all Omorovicza products its packed full of incredible ingredients like Nasturtium extracts which helps to increase the oxygen levels in the skin, there is also Hyalauronic Acid to help moisturise, Hungary’s mineral rich healing waters within and packed with the best vitamins and essential oils sourced from all around the world. All these wonderful ingredients have led to my skin looking brighter and more radiant, it’s softer and more smooth, the lines and wrinkles around my mouth and eyes are softened and pores are less noticeable too. Because I use the Oxygen Booster with moisturisers from the high street, the gel serum booster has actually made the cheaper products more, for want of a better word, potent, and that is absolutely brilliant for me!  Although I applied the Oxygen Booster to my skin, then applied moisturiser on top, you can if you prefer add the booster onto the moisturiser on the back of your hand. I’ve tried both methods and both work in the same way. A really gorgeous product to add into my skincare regime twice a day. You can find this award winner HERE.

Ellora Beauty… High Performance Day Moisturiser..

Hello lovely people, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

Here’s the second product from the fabulous new skincare company that I’ve been trialing over the last few weeks it’s of course Ellora Beauty, and this is the High Performance Day Moisturiser.

Thank you to Ellora Beauty for allowing me to use their image in my blog, I had many many sachets of the moisturiser to use rather than the full sized product, so Mark has had this post off so to speak! Mind you he hasn’t got off too lightly, he’s just photographed the night cream for me. Anyhow, on with the review of this beauty.

Packed with beautiful ingredients such as Swiss Apple Stem Cell to combat the visible signs of aging, Advanced Peptide Complex which helps to smooth the look of wrinkles and facial lines, and helps to improve the elasticity of the skin. Beautiful Damask Rose, Red Clover and Mountain Tea Extracts all help to nourish smooth and plump up the look of the skin.

As I’ve got older my skin has become quite dull looking, so I really need products to put the brightness back into my face, and the High Performance Day Moisturiser does just that. After using for a few weeks now, my skin is softer and a lot brighter in fact it does have a rosy  glow. The gorgeous thick cream is a joy to use, a little goes a long way, and the delicious fragrance enlivens the senses too, which is so needed in the mornings. It readies my face for makeup giving me the perfect base for my foundation or BB cream. This is a 50ml (1.7fl oz) jar of gorgeousness! If you would like to purchase this and more Ellora Beauty products you can use ELEGANTAGELESSBEAUTY for a 10% discount on ALL Ellora products, and there is FREE MAINLAND UK DELIVERY too! HERE.
