[AD-Gifted] Discovering Living Pure Natural Skincare….

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I do love me some natural skincare. These two products that I have to share with you today really are some of the best I’ve used. The brand, Living Pure Natural is a new one to me, but they are winners of the 2018 Beauty Shortlist Awards, Editors Choice. Products are paraben free, there are no artificial colours, is dermatologically tested, and they do not test on animals.

This first beauty that I’m sharing with you is from the absolutely stunning Eternal Oil Collection, this is the facial oil. Oh my word its gorgeous! It’s packaged in a lovely green glass bottle with pipette delivery system. I’ve never used a facial oil that’s a dry finish oil, and still leave my skin feeling soft and very hydrated afterwards. It’s so lightweight, my skin feels clean and fresh but still moisturised. It also does smell incredibly delicious too. Containing 100% natural origin ingredients of concentrated plant and herb oils, which include Bay oil, Sweet Almond oil, Hazelnut and Lavender. There is also Vitamin E with Olive oil to help to nourish and protect the skin from anti oxidants. I’ve been using this facial oil at night-time after cleansing and toning. It absorbs into my skin really easily, and without feeling sticky and oily. I can then apply my night cream and an eye cream for an incredible all night treat. This is the first facial oil that I’ve used that hasn’t made my skin feel clogged up. For me, this is perfect. If you would like to take a look yourself, click HERE.

This is the NEA Intense Hydration Face Cream. The dermatologically tested face cream ensures the skin is moisturised throughout the day. It contains Shea Butter, Argan oil, Cacao extract, Almond oil and Jasmine, all in there to provide hydrated, nourished and considerably brighter looking skin. As I’ve aged my skin can sometimes look grey which makes me look tired. But since using this lovely face cream my skin is appearing to be a lot brighter and radiant now, it’s really given me my glow back. It’s definitely smoother and hydrated, my skin drinks it up when I massage it in, and it stays moisturised and soft all day. I have also been using it on my neck and onto my decollete instead of my usual neck cream. It’s perfect here too, keeping the areas soft and supple and hydrated. It really is what it says on the jar, Intense Hydration Face Cream, perfect. If you would like to check this one out, have a click HERE.

Firming Neck and Decollete Cream by skinSense…[competition prize]

Hello beauty lovers, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

A few months ago I won a “giveaway” over on Instagram that was run by skinSense. I was so chuffed to win a fabulous Firming Neck and Decollete cream, and my daughter won one too!

I have wanted to try skinSense products for ages, but have never been able too (money) so to win one in a competition, well I was a very happy bunny.

I don’t have a wrinkly neck really, although it has been drooping a bit due to ageing and up and down weight loss etc. I do have some discolouration on my chest area which is slightly red looking and feels a bit bumpy. I have always moisturised my neck with my skincare, but my chest area I always leave it to whatever body lotion I use after bathing.

The skinSense Firming Neck & Décolleté Cream is formulated to help to restore the moisture and firmness that’s lost due to ageing. Containing Allantoin, Zinc and Soya Oil to help to soften and also to help to restore collagen and elastin in the skin. I’ve been using the cream for a few months now, and I can honestly say I really love it! The centre of my neck was quite droopy, “turkey neck” as it’s often called. Now it’s not so noticeable, it appears to me to be quite a bit tighter and smoother. I’ve been using the cream from my neck to right over my upper chest area, Decollete where I have the discolouration and bumpy skin, and it appears to be so much more smooth and less red looking. I do it day and night within my skincare routine. It smells beautiful and applies like a dream, my skin just drinks it up! It doesn’t feel sticky or tacky once applied either, it’s a really lovely product. Somehow I knew it would be though.

If you would like to see this and other products from skinSense you can find them HERE.

[AD-Gifted] Super Stylo Satin Finish Lipstick by MUA Makeup Academy…..

Hey there lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty!

I had a little squeal of delight when 6 gorgeous looking lipsticks by my favourite makeup brand MUA Makeup Academy arrived for a little play.

I have 6 shades from the 8 that are available. They are lovely chunky twist up lipsticks, with the absolutely gloriously MUA usual fragrance of vanilla! All of them are so wonderfully pigmented and glide on perfectly leaving a very pretty sheen to the lips. They last a good couple of hours on me, I am a constant lip licker and I drink a lot of water and a few coffees through the day. But re-applying doesn’t bother me as the lipsticks aren’t drying at all, they feel so moisturising. The darker shades do leave a slight stain on the lips as they wear down, and even though I have nearly 59 year old lips, these did not “bleed” into my lines, AND I wasn’t wearing any lip liner either.

Let’s look at the pretty colours! I just want to clarify that the numbers on the lipstick are not the numbers that MUA have put on them. Mark popped them on for me so that I’m able to give you the shade names more accurately.

 1. FIRST CLASS.  beautiful blue toned red.

2. ELITE Pink with brown tones.

3, SUPER NUDE a cool toned nude

4, WORLD CLASS a warm pink nude

5, HEROIC a warm nude

6, MAJOR a warm orange-brown

You can pick up these gorgeous lipsticks from Superdrug on your High Street or online HERE. And right now there is a 3 for 2 on on cosmetics until 26th March.

Thank you for stopping by and reading today.

Pureplex Bond Reconstructing Shampoo and Conditioner…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I bet I have the best conditioned hair in my town! Well maybe. Although I could have, because it is cleansed and conditioned with the help of Knight And Wilson, the hair care people that has become my new favourite. I recently coloured my hair Rose Gold with the Knight and Wilson Colour Freedom Metallic Glory Rose Gold hair dye. You can read my review HERE. I had a conditioning treatment after that using the Pureplex Hair Repair System and you can see my review HERE. Now to keep my hair in this tip-top condition I’m using the Pureplex Bond Reconstructing Shampoo and the Conditioner.

Let me tell you about the shampoo. This shampoo has been especially designed to be used daily (if you are a daily washer of hair) specifically for coloured, bleached, highlighted, any chemical treatment in fact AND for hair that is ageing, hair that is easily broken. It’s formulated with the Aminofix Bond Reconstructor and although its sulphate free it gently cleanses the hair and also helps to repair any damage caused by heated appliances and chemicals. The shampoo helps to build the hair’s structure and also it protects it from any harm you will do to the hair in the future. I for one will not stop colouring my hair! As for ingredients it has Shea Butter, Argan Oil and Panthenol (which is a form of vitamin B5) The Pureplex shampoo also contains UV filters.

The first thing I noticed when I squeezed this rich creamy shampoo into my hand is the fragrance, its gorgeous and fresh and “apple-y” I used a good-sized amount of product for my first shampoo because my hair is so thick. Thankfully it’s not too lathery,  I don’t have a shower so I have to wash my hair over the bath every time with a jug. The first shampoo rinsed out really easily and I could feel the squeak from my hair. I did a second shampoo using less of the product and paid more attention to massaging my scalp, this time there was a bit more lather although it rinsed away very clearly. I then combed my hair through with a wide toothed comb ready for the Pureplex Conditioner and it was already easy to comb when wet.

The conditioner too is so creamy and rich in consistency and like the shampoo has the fresh and apple scent. I used about a dessert spoonful of product in my hand and worked it through my hair, not reaching my scalp though. I let the conditioner work into my hair for a couple of minutes then rinsed out thoroughly. It was easy to rinse out when using my old jug method, I didn’t feel as though there was any residue left on my hair. I then wrapped my hair in a towel and left it to soak up the excess water rather than rub my hair as I usually do. Running a brush through my hair when its wet is so easy after using this glorious conditioner, didn’t struggle with any knots at all. I more often than not leave my hair to dry naturally but if I do use my  hairdryer it dries fantastically with no flyaway bits of hair. I always dry my hair using the nozzle downwards so as not to “ruffle” up the shaft of the hair, this will help with keeping the hair smoother looking.

After being introduced to all the ranges of hair products by Knight and Wilson I shall be purchasing more from the brand I really am enjoying everything that I’ve tried so far. If you would like to try them for yourself you can find them in your local Superdrug store or online HERE.

Burning Embers by MUA Makeup Academy…

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

In my attempt to start feeling Springlike I finally got hold of an MUA Makeup Academy palette that I’ve been hankering after since it was launched. This is the Burning Embers eyeshadow palette, and the colours just say Spring and Summer to me. Check this little stunner out!

This gorgeous palette houses 25 eyeshadows, pink and earthy tones from muted to bright, a mix of satin, shimmer and matte. As is usual with MUA these eyeshadows are so pigmented, soft and buttery in texture and easily blendable to an intensity you like. I would wear all the colours in this palette, I may be pushing 58 but that is why I can! I am also going to be colouring my hair Rose Gold soon, and there are many colours in the Burning Embers palette that will compliment my new hair shade. I love this palette!

The MUA Makeup Academy Burning Embers palette is £8.00 on their website HERE. BUT over on the Superdrug website it’s a *star buy* at just £6.00 HERE.

Lots of love, Teresa
