Flawless Silk Foundation….B. Makeup..

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I had been trying to get my hands on this foundation for ages but it had always been out of stock in my local Superdrug. I couldn’t order it online because I needed to check for the correct shade for my skin tone, now thankfully I have it and it was so worth waiting for. This is the Flawless Silk Foundation by B. Makeup. I tried it without using a primer underneath.

This non – oily silk foundation gives a light to medium coverage which is buildable and easy to blend to the coverage you want. It’s so lightweight that I couldn’t feel I was wearing a foundation, but for the pretty glow it gave my skin, to touch my skin feels silky and soft. The Flawless Silk Foundation comes in a tube, but rather than a squeezy delivery system it’s actually a pump-action one, the cap clearly says “Pump me slowly” but before you do give it a good shake first it works better that way!

To give the foundation a good try out I used 3 ways to apply it. My dampened foundation sponge (not a B. Makeup one) a brush (not a B. makeup one) and my fingers. To be honest I’ve never liked using my fingers to apply my foundation, but they are a pretty good tool to apply it with if you want more of a fuller coverage, using fingers for this one you do get a good slip of the product, it didn’t drag on my skin at all, I patted it in over the eye area so as not to pull at the delicate skin, it covered the darkness in the inner corners of my eyes. I much prefer using my two favourite methods though to apply this foundation. I used just one pump with my damp sponge and it covered what I wanted it to cover. I get a bit of redness on my left cheek and my chin, and both areas were covered nicely, using the damp sponge gives a lighter coverage that is perfect for days when I’m just at home but want my skin to look as though I’m more put together. If I need a heavier coverage I use a buffing brush and again this gorgeous product applies like a dream. After I have blended the foundation in I take whats left on the brush over my eyes, carefully. I do tend to sweat on my eyelids so this just helps me get a nice base for eyeshadow. I then apply a light dusting of setting powder down the center of my face and my skin looks flawless! What I did notice about the Flawless Silk Foundation is that it dries quickly on the skin and it doesn’t feel sticky and tacky, I just get smooth soft looking skin with a bit of a glow, which lasts me all day until I take it off.

This and ALL B. makeup and skincare is suitable for Vegans, and the foundation has an SPF 15, it’s available in 12 shades… Check out Superdrug on your High Street or find it HERE.

Love, Teresa

Nourish Skin Range….Radiance Firming Facial Oil..

Hello lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

This facial oil is perfection! That’s a pretty big statement from me seeing as how my favourite facial oil has for a long time been the facial oil from that “celestial sounding” brand. I actually do really LOVE this oil, and it does exactly what it says on the bottle! I’ve been using the oil for 3 months and I love the results I’ve got from it…..This is the Radiance Firming Facial Oil from Nourish Skincare.

So luxurious, it’s a beautiful blend of omega rich Macadamia and Pumpkin oils with a blend of Rosehip and Borage oil in there too, the fragrance is from the blend of Geranium and Damask Rose oils, and is glorious by the way! This facial oil is certified Vegan and cruelty free and it’s made in the United Kingdom, so this oil certainly ticks all the boxes for me for sure!

I used the Radiance Illuminating Facial Oil every night after cleansing. I apply a few drops from the  pipette dispenser to my hand and warm it a little, I then massage into my skin for 2 minutes, I take it under my eyes if the area feels a little drier than usual  and then apply my eye cream, and I always take it over my lips too. I leave the oil to sink into my skin for a few moments then add whichever night cream I’m using at the time to finish off my night-time routine. The next morning my skin looks smooth and glowing, the area around my mouth and jowls does look more firm and less saggy. I appear to look much more awake too, my skin is more alive and brighter looking when I look into the mirror and is certainly less grey looking. If I want a more intense overnight treatment, I will apply a whole pipette full of the oil to my skin then apply any overnight cream mask I have also, this gives me a wonderful hydrating and brightening treat.

You can see this gorgeous facial oil and more too if you go HERE.

Nourish Skincare…..”Healthy Skin is Beautiful Skin”

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty  I’m Teresa.

I’ve been trialing some really super skincare products that Mark actually had sent to him before Christmas, I thought that I’d share one of the products with you today from Nourish Skincare. The first product is the Argan Skin Renew Moisturiser.

I adore products that are in glass bottles and jars, not only are they aesthetically pleasing they are better for our environment and can be recycled. This has the pump-action delivery system that gives you the amount you should need, it’s up to the individual whether you need more, I used two pumps worth on my face.

This product is literally 85% Organic. Using Argan oil, Jojoba seed oil, Rosehip seed oil, Aloe Vera to name just a few. Borage and Myrrh are also present to help to rejuvenate and renew the skin. Vitamin E and collagen boosting ingredients to help with the signs of aging. While Rose of Jericho helps with hydration. Fabulous!

After cleansing and toning (with products from other brands) I applied 2 pumps worth of my Argan Skin Renew to my skin and massaged in. My skin drank it up, especially my chin and cheek areas. I took it up to my eyes but I didn’t apply over my eyes, I felt that this may be too rich for the area. It does smell rather good, it’s more rose fragrance that comes through, but not the sickly fake rose smell, this is delightful. I found that after using this moisturiser for a week or so I did get a couple of spots on my chin, but I haven’t been bothered by them since. In fact I’m now looking at skin that’s hydrated more luminous and not so winter dull looking. You get 50ml in this bottle of gorgeousness and a little really does go a long way, even on my mature, dehydrated skin!

Thank you for stopping by today, I shall have more for you soon.

B. Strong… Skincare for 60 plus

Hey lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty…

I’m not really one for using products that state they are specifically for my age I’m 57 now, I use product that I like and for my skin concerns if it’s skincare. So when I was sent a day cream and a night cream which are for those who are 60 and beyond, I thought do what?! But when I saw that it was from the B. Skincare brand at Superdrug I decided to give it a go, because I just love the B. Skincare range. Let me start with the Day Cream.

This range of B. Skincare is called B. Strong. To target 60 plus skin that has become thin and dehydrated, skin that has lost density through the ageing process. It’s said to re-cushion the skin, add plumpness back into the skin.

When I first opened the pretty glass jar the fragrance of the cream within brought back memories to me, I just thought that it smelled similar to a cold cream that my Mum used to use many years ago, and a lovely fresh smell it is too I like it a lot! I used the day cream after cleansing first thing in the morning, I have found it really rich but there is no stickiness left on the skin, it sinks in beautifully. I feel as though my skin “sucks” up more cream on the drier areas of my face which are my cheeks. I also took the day cream down onto my neck, again it just sank into the drier areas. After a time I noticed  how plumped up and more hydrated my skin looked, and on another plus it didn’t make my foundation oxidize like some moisturisers can do. This really is a gorgeous day cream, and I knew it wouldn’t let me down, ‘cos it’s from B. Skincare at Superdrug!

This is the equally gorgeous Night Cream from B. Skincare and the B. Strong range. It’s a different coloured glass jar being pretty turquoise which is fantastic for me, it saves me squinting to find my Night cream when I don’t take my reading glasses into the bathroom at night. The bright-coloured glass makes it easily recognisable, thanks B. Skincare! The Night Cream is much more rich than the Day Cream, and again it doesn’t feel sticky on the skin, it sinks in like a dream. I used this after cleansing at night, and on it’s own I never added a serum or oil like I normally would in my night time routine, I took it right down my neck as well as massaging it into my face. The next morning my skin looked so soft, it was certainly hydrated and there were no dry patches. I haven’t stopped using either of these B. Strong creams, I am really enjoying what they are doing to my skin right now, in fact my skin has never looked better!

You can find all B. Skincare only at Superdrug on the High Street or online, right now there is a Better than half price on selected B. Skincare HERE.

Thank you for stopping by my lovelies.
