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.

My review of the epiSpa Illuminating Eye Cream is HERE.

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.

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.

Thank you for stopping by today..

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.

The Ellora Beauty Night Cream review will be here soon!

All Ellora products have been gifted to me for review.

A Load of Empties!…

Hello lovely people!

I have always thought that an empties post wouldn’t really work on my blog, it’s hard to make a bunch of empty products look pretty in a photo, but I’ve seen a few bloggers have done an “empties” blog post and it does work out for them, so I thought I might as well give it a go too then. Here goes!

This first of many empties from Heaven Skincare, was Mark’s favourite product from them, and I have to say that it is rather lovely as I did pinch it sometimes myself. It’s the M4M Anti Ageing Moisturiser for men. If you would like to read the full review you can find it HERE.

Another one of Mark’s favourites, and I could see why, I borrowed it to shave my legs and underarms and it really is lovely to use. My skin was so smooth and soft and wasn’t irritated at all. The full review is HERE.

This MUA Makeup Academy Lip Scrub with Vitamin E is another empty, and I’ve another one in my basket on the Superdrug website for a re-purchase. I just love it! I am never going to use another lip scrub. If you would like to see why I love it so much take a look at my full review HERE.

Two Heaven Skincare body products are all used up. I do have a little of the Afternoon Tea fragrance hand and body lotion left that I use solely on my hands now, I’d rather use whats left for my hand care because I love the way it makes my hands look and feel after using it. I’ve a full review if you wish to take a look HERE.

The Freedom Makeup Glycolic Glow Tonic, with Ginseng and Aloe Vera is almost all used up. I haven’t been using it every day since I got it, because it’s an exfoliant and I have been using it as well as other acid treatments. I shall be re-purchasing another bottle soon. You can read my full review HERE.

This Wonder Balm from Beauty Kitchen is a life saver for lips and cuticles in the harsh winter months. Containing cocoa butter it’s so moisturising as a lip balm, I used it every day throughout the day. If my cuticles needed a bit extra hydration this is all I used. I am so disappointed that I don’t have anymore left at the moment, but I shall be ordering some more. Read my full review HERE.

My most favourite of all my Heaven moisturisers was the gorgeous fruity creamy Divine Cream, I adored it, and was so disappointed to finish it up. I shall be treating myself to a small one, soon. You can see why I loved it HERE. Another Heaven empty is the New Edition Cream Cleanser, and I’m going to purchase one as soon as I can, it contains bee venom and can actually be used as a moisturiser too! I’ve a review HERE.

Thank you for reading, I shall be back soon with more new product reviews. I’m hoping to bring some makeup products to my blog very soon, just for a change.

Omorovicza Firming Neck Cream..

Hey there my lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty!

This is the second of a brand new recently launched product from Omorovicza that my lovely friend Kim HERE sent to me to share with you all, this is the Omorovicza Firming Neck Cream.

omoroviczafirmingneckcream

We should all be taking the same amount of care looking after the skin on our neck and decollete as we do with our faces. The skin on our neck/ decollete area is thinner than everywhere else and is therefore prone to dehydration and can show the first signs of aging quicker than anywhere else, it’s the area that is more open to the elements too, and if we don’t take care of that area as we age, we will end up with  what is horribly called a “Turkey Neck” loose flabby skin that actually can look like a turkey’s neck. Personally I have always moisturised my neck during my skincare regime so I don’t have particularly many wrinkles, but I’ve not bothered so much with my decollete, I usually rely on my body lotion for that. I realise now that I should have taken more care, my decollete is discoloured slightly and the skin isn’t quite as smooth as it should be. This beautiful Omorovicza Firming Neck Cream has been just what my neck and decollete has needed! And here’s why…

Firstly I love that the cream is in a gorgeous frosted glass jar that looks wonderful on my bathroom shelf, and it’s got a cute little spatula so that you can hygenically take the amount of cream to use. There are some pretty special ingredients within the cream too, white truffle enzymes are in there to help firm and tone, helping to improve the elasticity of the skin. Something called Leontopodic acid which is extracted from edelweiss flowers is in there to resurface the look of the skin. There are also two types of hyaluronic acid which helps nourish and plump up the skin, and with Shea butter and Beeswax this really is a gorgeously rich luxurious cream. While using my Firming Neck Cream I can’t help but inhale the gorgeous fragrance of it, it smells of Lavender to me, it’s just divine! A little goes a long way too, a pea sized amount is all I needed. I warmed the cream in my fingers then massaged up my neck and outwards towards my ears. I then massage over my decollete, again using upwards and outward strokes. I have been using the cream every day and night in my skincare routine and I’m loving the difference I’m seeing to the skin especially the change in the look of my decollete area. It feels smoother, and is also less red looking too, the Firming Neck Cream has actually lightened that area. It definitely gives me hydration all day too, and when I use it in my night-time routine, the following morning the skin on my neck and decollete is still soft and hydrated, AND the skin on my throat is less wobbly! That’s the neck cream lifting, amazing! To find Firming Neck Cream, go to Omorovicza HERE.

Lots of love, Teresa

Superdrug Optimum PhytoHydrate Day Cream

Hello my loves!

Today I’m sharing with you a day cream  from the Superdrug own brand, Optimum PhytoHydrate, with Birch water. Birch water comes from the sap of the Nordic mature Silver Birch tree which is harvested in Springtime and is said to have hydrating and detoxifying properties. It’s  known to be particularly gentle and hydrating on skin that is prone to dehydration.

superdrugoptimumdaycream

This is a lovely day cream. I love the pump-action delivery system that gives you the correct amount needed for fantastic hydration. Not only is there the hydrating Birch water, it also contains gorgeous Shea Butter for smooth soft skin, with Vitamin E, Pro-Vitamin B5 in there too, to protect from environmental damage. I dispensed one pump to my fingers and the first thing I noticed was the lovely fresh natural fragrance, secondly the consistency, it’s thick but lightweight and creamy which my skin drank up and didn’t leave my skin sticky or tacky. After a few moments my skin felt soft and smooth and ready for makeup. I initially used my PhytoHydrate day cream at about 8am and by lunchtime my skin was still feeling soft and supple and hydrated, and by the time I was ready to do my night-time routine it was still feeling the same, with an SPF 15 this is a perfect daytime moisturiser for Winter, and it can also be used in your night-time skincare routine too.

I love the Superdrug Optimum skincare range, in fact to be honest I love all Superdrug own brand of skincare, and this new PhytoHydrate day cream with Birch water did not disappoint. If you fancy giving it a try, pop to your local Superdrug store, or click HERE.

Thank you for reading, lots of love.

M4M ANTI AGEING MOISTURE 4 MEN by Heaven Skincare

Welcome back to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

Mark has always been shower/bath – hair wash – shave a couple of days a week – deodorant, then a bit of aftershave if we go out kind of guy, he’s never really been into skin care at all. Then along came Deborah Mitchell and Heaven Skincare, and all that changed. Deborah very generously sent him a selection of her men’s grooming products to try. Here is one of his favourites, M4M Anti Ageing Moisturiser.

HeavenMoisturiser

The packaging for all Heaven men’s grooming products is very nice, it’s sleek and masculine in black I think it’s very stylish looking. This moisturiser has a great pump-action delivery system, just press down the top and the correct amount of product is dispensed.

There are some gorgeous ingredients within M4M moisturiser, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Cedar Wood, Coconut oil and Organic Clary Sage. Clary Sage is in there to balance the production of natural oils in the skin, it also helps to reduce inflammation and rashes therefore making it ideal for use after shaving, particularly for those men who are prone to razor rash. The Cedar Wood will tone the skin. Vitamin A is for helping with those lines and wrinkles, Vitamin E is to help the skin repair itself and protect it from free radicals.

Mark is a big fan of moisturising his face now, he loves the way his skin feels after he’s shaved and applied this lovely moisturiser. It also smells gorgeous too! It’s a lovely fresh fragrance, he told me that the one pump’s worth is all he needs to moisturise his face and neck, he said it sinks in lovely, and it doesn’t make his face feel sticky or greasy. I have to say that the first time Mark used the moisturiser his skin did look and feel very soft. I’m so glad there’s more than one mirror in our house now Mark has taken an interest in skincare!

Heaven Skincare Overnight Success Oxygen Cream…

This is quite possibly the nicest night cream I’ve ever used! I had a sample of the Overnight Success Oxygen Cream by Heaven Skincare, and I’m sad that I’ve finished it up, it’s been amazing. I have such a long “shopping/wish list” of Heaven Skincare and body products, I just need to get the finances now to re-purchase.

Heavenoxygencream

This lovely light cream contains some beautiful organic essential oils, one of them being Absolute Rose which absolutely comes through subtley in the fragrance of the cream, it also contains Sandalwood oil. There is also Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, and Hyaluronic Acid.  Now for the science bit! This night cream contains Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide which makes it light and so allows the skin to breathe and rejuvenate overnight.

This cream was so cooling when I applied it to my face after cleansing and toning, for a night cream it felt very fresh which is due to the Oxygen within. It sank into my skin right away and because it felt so light I used it under my eyes too, hoping it wouldn’t lead me to waking up with puffiness on the eye area. I needn’t have worried, when I looked in the mirror the following morning my skin looked so good, it was beautifully hydrated with no oilyness that some night creams have left me with. There was no sign of any grey or dullness to my skin, absolutely no puffiness from using it under my eyes either. My skin was glowing, the two pimples on my cheek that have been bugging me for a while appear lessened too. This really is a gorgeous night cream. It’s perfect for any skin type, even sensitive and Rosacea prone skins can benefit.

Heaven by Deborah Mitchell…Age Defiance Cream

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty

I’m getting to the end of the lovely products sent to me from Heaven Skincare, at least my products anyway. But Mark has a few favourites that he’s been enjoying since Christmas, and I’ll be writing reviews and sharing his thoughts with you to maybe give you a few ideas for skincare products for the man/men in your life. For now though I’ll share with you this lovely moisturiser, Age Defiance Cream.

HeavenAgeDefiance

Age Defiance Cream is a moisturiser designed to slow down the ageing process of the skin by holding in water. It helps to plump out fine lines and wrinkles and is perfect as a base for your makeup. It contains Vitamins B and C to protect the skin from the pollutants of our everyday lives. It also has Tea Tree oil to reduce scar formation and help to calm rosacea and restore the balance of the skin. This lightweight  moisturiser is suitable for all skin types. After cleansing and toning I applied my Age Defiance Cream, it feels so creamy, luxurious  and cooling when I applied it to my skin, and it sinks in straight away leaving no tackiness behind. Right away I noticed a difference to my skin, it’s plumper looking and smooth, it’s soft and very hydrated and more glowing. The horizontal line above my left eye is plumped out and less visible, my number 11s between my eyes appear less noticeable too. This is a really lovely anti-aging moisturiser for everyday use. You can find it HERE.
