This blog is primarily aimed at the more mature ladies, but anyone with a general interest in all things to do with beauty, please feel free to join in. I will try to include items for all interests. Please read and enjoy ♥
Over the next few weeks I shall be using some nail products by Micro Cell, specialists in hand and nail care. I have been sent a gorgeous set of Nail Repair to review here on EAB, which I’m so happy about because I can’t get hold of my usual nail treatment and my nails are really suffering right now.
This is a super little try me kit that I shall be using over the next 2-3 weeks and then I shall be back with some “before” and “after” photos and a full review of the products. I’m looking forward to trying something new on my nails, the treatment that I’ve been using for over 10 years has been discontinued which was disappointing, so hopefully fingers crossed this will do the job for me.
Hello lovelies and welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty
I have been writing product reviews on my blog for nearly 3 years now, and even before I started I have been using this product that I’m going to share with you today.
I think it must be 7 years maybe more that I gave up wearing acrylic nails, I used to do them myself at home. Then one day I just decided to remove them for good. My natural nails underneath were in a heck of a state! They had length but they were very weak dry and peeling, and paper thin. I cut them right down, filed them into my perfect shape and gave them a good soak and massage with the nail oil that came with my acrylics kit. They grew pretty quickly but they were still breaking and peeling. So I went into our local chemist shop and picked up the Rimmel Nail Nurse Nail Rescue, and the rest, as they say is history. I’ve never looked back, 7 years later I still buy it over and over.
The Nail Nurse Nail Rescue is a treatment to be used over 14 days to begin with. Just paint onto clean unpolished nails every day for the first seven days. You now have 7 coats of the treatment on the nails. On the 8th day remove the product from the nails, and repeat the process for another 7 days. Even during the first week of using I noticed my nails beginning to look pinker and the tips whiter, and they were definitely growing stronger too. By the end of the 14 days I had the best nails I’d had for years! You do have to be strong and not be tempted to put on colour while using the treatment, but it’s worth it. I do still have myself a weekly treatment every now and then with the Nail Rescue, I apply it every day for 7 days without colour and it’s keeping my nails strong and long with no peeling at all, AND I always use it as a base coat to my manicure when I add colour.
I rarely recommend products that I review on EAB, because everyone is different. But this is one product that I would recommend, highly. It has worked on my once paper thin and peeling nails, it’s my hero product for the last 7 years or so AND it’s my MOST repurchased product. If you want to try it for yourself you can get it from Superdrug online HERE for just £4.49 or any High Street shop.
So, I had a beauty shopping list all written out ready to transfer to my Superdrug online account and then Mark suggested that instead of waiting for the few days delivery why not just get in the car and go through to March (a little town near us) Superdrug. Sounded good to me, I’ll have my products in my hands TODAY!
I’m pretty good when it comes to beauty shopping, I NEVER buy products I know I will never use, I NEVER buy anything because I only want to blog about it, I shall be using everything you can see in my little “haul”
I was desperate for some new nail products, I’ve loads of nail polish, but I needed files and cuticle oil. I plumped for a pack of “Long Lasting Nail Shapers” which are Superdrug’s own brand and were £1.99 for a pack of 2. I also got a “Cushioned Nail Buffer” again Superdrug brand, which was £1.89. I couldn’t find the cuticle oil I was after so instead I bought Superdrug “Conditioning Cuticle Cream” which was £2.99 I needed a face scrub so I plumped for the “Smoothing Facial Scrub” from Simple for £2.66 My L’Oreal “Age Perfect Refreshing Toner” was £2.99 “Organix Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco” penetrating hair oil was £4.66 my “Eyelure Individual Lashes” were £5.35 For moisturiser I bought one from “Nivea” I chose the “Express Hydration Primer” which was only £3.32 and, I finally found I could buy Makeup Revolution products from my local Superdrug, only been waiting for nearly a year for that to happen! So I picked up (or rather Mark sneaked it into the basket, without me knowing) The “Flawless” eye shadow palette from Makeup Revolution, £8.00, lastly I bought 2 MUA Makeup Academy items, a clear nail polish which was £1.00 and one of their new “Sweet Sheen Lip Balm” which was £2.00.
There are a couple of items here that I shall be writing a review of, so I hope you will look out for them soon.
Another day, another nail polish. Although this isn’t really a nail polish it’s more for nail treatment, and it’s from MUA MakeupAcademy. This is Super Strength Nail Polish Basecoat.
Those of you who read my blog regularly will probably know that I have always used Rimmel Nail Nurse Rescue for my nail treatment, but when MUA brought out their Super Strength Basecoat I thought I would give it a try, after all it is at least £3.00 cheaper. I use it as a basecoat every time I do my manicure now and I really like it. It has an amazing brush for easy application of the product in 2 swipes. The formula of the product is super, I was expecting it to be thin and “watery” but it’s not it’s like applying a nail polish it’s a lovely thick consistency that doesn’t drop off the brush. I apply one coat on the whole nail then sweep the brush across the tip of the nail for added strength. I love how this basecoat makes my nails look au naturale, it makes the white tips look whiter and very clean looking and I haven’t had any peeling or cracking or any breaks to my nails while I’ve been using Super Strength. I’m converted now! And it’s only £2.00 from HERE.
