Hiya Darlins

The reason I have mixed these two products together on this one post is that  they naturally work together, although you of course could use just one.

Liz Earle Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask 50ml

This is a rich thick creamy almost dry feeling mask, by that I mean it sits on the skin without any movement, it isn't dry and chalky although It does feel drier  after a few minutes on the skin. Blended with naturally active ingredients including Borage seed oil, Apricot kernel oil, Comfry, Shea Butter and Rose scented Geranium essential oil it is soothing to the skin as well as helping to retain moisture, I personally would use this mask when I wanted to fully relax for 10-15 minutes, the fragrance is both relaxing and soothing, it feels comfortable on the skin, as is easily removed with a warm wash cloth. Suitable for all skin types. Follow with

This !  I am going to struggle with, not because there is anything wrong with it, but the fact that it is so so good leaves me struggling for words.

Filled with naturally active ingredients, Aloe Vera, Calendula, Cucumber, Rose scented Geranium and Vitamin E this blend works perfectly to give you a lift whenever you feel you need it, can be used on both face and body from 20cm distance this spritz is truly a keeper, the Lavender and Sweet Orange fragrance seems to somehow lift your mood and spirit, apart from this being mentally pleasing to use my skin felt just amazing for hours after using, I prefer this is on warm day with little or no make up and actually keep mine in the fridge ! 

Kept in your bag or office drawer you will reach for this everytime you need an Ahhhh moment.

Simply Be Summer Sandals

Simply B Summer Sandals
Simply B Summer Sandals 

Hi Loves
What about this sunshine this week here in the UK ?  I am getting excited now for sure, I love everything about summer, clothes, sandals, eating outside, long evenings, just about everything !

I need no excuse for new sandals ever, these ones I discovered at Simply Be, they are from Dune and for me, just perfect, no longer can I wear 6 inch heels, and I do love a flip flop but just sometimes you need something a little more glam than a flip flop for giving you a bit of height and feeling a little more dressy.

Simply B Summer Sandals

These are Head over Heels by Dune the style is Navilla, with a 2cm silver metal trim block heel,   metallic silver double strap with elasticated heel strap, these are super comfy and in fact have become more comfortable with every wear, I don't know about you but my years of suffering in painful footwear just to look good are well gone, so I was pleasantly surprised that these were good to go from the first wear.

Simply B Summer Sandals

The thing I find about the Simply Be website is the ease of shopping and there are always good stock quantities, I hate finding something I like and it being out of stock in my size everytime !

Instant Effects Instant Lash Volumiser

Instant Effects Instant Lash Volumiser
Instant Effects Instant Lash Volumiser 

Hi Lovely

Fancy longer thicker healthier lashes ?  stupid question, don't we all want that ? I have been using a product lately that gives just that, it's not one of those white mascara's that give the temporary effect of thicker lashes, it a clear serum in the form of a mascara wand that can be used on both lashes and brows, within 2 minutes you have instantly thicker looking lashes and brow hairs that have been increased by 20% simply coat the lashes in the serum and apply mascara, it's not trick fibres it's actually a product that gives more than a temporary filler, it works with each use to condition and thicken the lashes with up to 40% increase in thickness in two weeks and up to 20% increase in length in just two weeks.  While this can be used under mascara, I use it daily, I also use it at night on clean lashes as that is what is recommended for the best results.

Instant Effects Instant Lash Volumiser

I can honestly say this has made a difference, even though I don't suffer with sparse lashes this had made a visible difference to my lashes and if on the odd night I forget to put it on it stresses me and I get cross with myself,  that's how good I believe it to be.

Instant Effects also produce instant Lip Plumper, review coming shortly, and Instant Eye Lift which looks interesting.

Nurture Replenish

Nurture Replenish

Hiya Gorgeous Reader

You may, like me, have not heard of Nurture Replenish from Healthspan it is a brand that believes wholly in a two step approach to Beauty via optimum skincare, haircare and health, it has been specifically designed for women in the Menopause and beyond, the company have an impressive list of experts in Hair, Beauty and Health on it's panel, and on reading it I can see that I have had the pleasure of meeting two of them previously, so I know that they know :) 

Nurture Replenish

Nurture Replenish 10-In-1 Hair Oil

Moisturise, Boosts shine, Provides colour protection,Improves softness and smoothness,protects against damage, improves manageability, increases strength, increases condition,provides anti-breakage protection,protects against heat.

Having used this oil extensively I can confirm that it has left my hair soft, shiny and seriously healthy looking, the fragrance is not overwhelming but has a fresh wash smell to it that lasts, as always with hair oil less is more, apply a few drops to towel dried hair, and style as normal, you will want to run your fingers through your hair to keep checking the softness.

100ml £11.95

Nurture Replenish

Nurture Replenish Facial Wash 

I was, I will admit wary of this facial wash, whilst I love wash off balms and cleansers I am not keen on anything foamy for fear of drying out my skin, from the very first use my skin was fine, it didn't feel tight, or look red and itchy, it was left clean and soft, I used this both as a morning cleanse, a first cleanse to remove make up, which it did nicely and a second cleanse after an oil, it performed really well as an all round cleanser, the pearl like consistency foams into a really cream lather and rinses away easily, containing Borage Oil which is naturally high in fatty acids and vitamin E this cleanser is thorough while at the same time moisturising. I favoured this as a morning cleanse as it really livens you up and smells heavenly fresh.

75ml £7.95

Nurture Replenish

Nurture Replenish Collagen Boosting Serum

A lightweight serum that literally glides onto the skin, vanishing within seconds, it leaves your skin feeling coated but not greasy or sticky, contains phytoestrogens from Soy Bean extract, these Phytoestrogens mimic natural oestrogen helping to boost oestrogen and collagen levels in the skin.  I loved this serum, my skin looked more alive with the use of this, whilst I used it as part of a whole routine from Nurture Replenish I would be confident to say you would see improvements by adding it to whichever skincare you use.

 30ml £15.95

Nurture Replenish

Nurture Replenish Eye Serum 

I am not a huge fan of eye creams, some I find make my eyes look worse rather than better and waking up to puffy eyes really is no joy, this is not an average eye cream, being serum it is incredibly lightweight and absorbs quickly leaving the skin around the eye area looking softer with diminished creasing, I had no puffy eyes and have to say my eyes certainly did look pretty flipping good in the morning, I used this twice a day morning and night, it worked well under make up unlike a cream which tends to sometimes make the eye area greasy, resulting in panda eye from mascara.
30ml 12.95

Nurture Replenish

Nurture Replenish Day Cream SPF15

This jar of day cream is a sheer delight to use, in conjunction with The Collagen Boosting Serum you will see the best results, but again as with all of this range I think you could quite easily cherry pick this day cream and add it into your usual routine, it has a beautiful creamy consistency while still being lightweight and easily absorbed it left no greasy residue just seriously soft fully moisturised skin which actually smooths fine lines leaving you looking fresher and healthier. I have used moisturisers costing 4 times the cost of this and not had better results !

Nurture Replenish

Nurture Replenish Neck and Decolletage Cream

Here I am going to be really strict, ONLY use this product at night, and as always do a test patch, This cream is said to tighten and improve the jawline and decolletage, and YES indeed it does, it is a miracle of a cream, it heats up the skin not in a stingy horrible way but more a gentle warming, containing a combination of Caffeine and Retinol amongst other ingredients they work together to bring you tighter firmer skin, use nightly over 4 weeks and you will be shocked at the change in your skin, that said I noticed a difference from around day 6, this is one that I can't now imagine being without, on a side note, I expected it to have a Deep Heat/Ralgex fragrance to it alongside the heating properties, but no, just a pleasant fresh fragrance. 

50ml £16.95

Nurture Replenish

Nurture Replenish Day/Night Skin Nutrition Supplement

A course of 30 Day and 30 Night supplements designed for use during the menopause and beyond to give your skin everything it needs from the inside, so you are treating it in the two step treatment I mentioned previously, this way you know you are doing everything you possibly can to give your skin everything it needs to stay healthy and fully moisturised.

Our skins need different things at different times of day which is why there is a day and a night capsule.

The daytime pill contains 

Hyaluronic Acid 10mg
Soy Germ Extract 100mg
providing isoflavones 40mg
Vitamin C 80mg (100)

and the night capsule contains 

Echium Oil 200mg
Borage Oil 250mg
combined providing
Omega 3 Fatty Acids (SDA and ALA) 70mg
Omega 6 Fatty Acids (GLA) 65mg
Lycopene 6mg
Natural Vitamin E 10mg (83)

So you can see both are providing different benefits.

30 Day Tablets and 30 Night Capsules £ 13.95

I wanted at the end of this review period to have decided on what bits I like and what I don't like, in fact I like it all, I especially like the prices, they represent incredible value for money for what can only only be described a very impressive range of skincare, as I have said previously you could cherry pick items of particular interest, but I bet a pound to a penny you would be keen enough having tried one to go back for more, this truly compares to products much much higher in price and could even be said to out pass many !  I really love it when something unexpected hits the spot.
