I have been shopping yet again and this time around its mostly stuff to do with my face. My T-zone area has given me so much grief over the past few years and I have been constantly looking for a product that could minimize my pores somehow. So I thought I would try this pore minimiser from The bodyshop. After using it a couple of times i was not happy with the results it just made me look even more oily. So I ain't purchasing this again. However, on a much more positive side, the Tea Tree oil is my little bundle of joy, I use this every single day after my evening shower and after cleansing my face. Its absolutely amazing and once applied directly onto the skin You feel the product penetrate through. Its got a minty smell to it and leaves your skin feeling as soft as a baby's bottom. It has helped me get rid of my blemishes.
I also purchased the infamous BEN NYE luxury powder and I am loving it so far great for highlighting and setting the under eye concealer.
After much though and saving up enough, I managed to treat myself to the naked 3 palette. If you lot know about the Naked Palettes you probably know how steep the prices are for just eye shadow. The palette retails at £40...yes I know you probably thinking I ain't spending that much on eye shadow. Well am really into eye shadows and this palette in particular was just perfect for because of the pinkish-neutral colors it has. Its not every ones cup of tea but for those who want to try it out, I would recommend it. I have had it for a month now and each time i use this palette i get compliments from friends and strangers.
The palette came with a set of 4 primer potions hence that was a bonus because I have heard great reviews about the urban decay primer potion and when i tried it it certainly lived up to its word. My eye shadow didn't crease at all and lasted the whole day.
I was giving an opportunity to try out these products by one of my very lovely family friend who happens to be an independent consultant for a company called Arbonne. Arbonne products are products entirely made out of botanical ingredients. So I was given these sample products to try them out and I have religiously used the conditioning body moisturizer every single day and my skin has certainly transformed and has a glow to it. I also used the firming cream on areas were i felt need firming and my skin has felt and looked different. Arbonne also has a wide range of cosmetic products and I was given a sample of the CC cream (similar to the BB cream) which comes in different skin shades. I used the medium brown one though it was slightly light for me, when I topped it up with the mineralise powder It was perfect. I would definitely recommend these products to those of you out there willing to see great change to your skin and besides that, the fact that these products are made out of organic ingredients is a bonus.
If any of you are interested you can contact Millicent.
