Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel


Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel



Hi Darlins

As you all know I am just a little bit obsessed with cleansing, so when I was offered the chance to test out the Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel I jumped at the chance, I had read good things about this product and wanted to see if it was all just marketing hype.

Having been a best seller and  available in Asia for the last 25 years it is now available in the UK, Asian women are famous for being more into skincare than cosmetics and this product was even quoted in the UK by Harper's Bazaar as being "Revolutionary"

Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel


I used this gel on clean dry skin, you apply a small amount of the green refreshing gel to your face ( it has a cooling feeling )  and you rub gently in small circles while before your eyes, dead skin and dirt appear in little balls on your skin ready to be rinsed off, the product is said to be a marvel for blackheads and blocked pores, fortunately I don't suffer from skin conditions now I am well out of my teens, but I was totally impressed at the exfoliating capabilities of a product contains no grains or grit.

Left feeling clean and refreshed, my skin showed no signs of redness or soreness, just perfectly clean. The product can be used every couple of days, and the only downside that I can see is that it could easily become a cleansing obsession !!

60ml Tube available at either www.janiro.co.uk  or Cult Beauty

If you have anyone with troubled skin, female or male I really would say it's well worth giving this a try.

Rimmel Super Curler 24HR Mascara | Kate Dare to Go Nude 42


Rimmel Super Curler 24HR Mascara | Kate Dare to Go Nude 42

Hiya Gorgeous

Firstly I have to say that Rimmel is a brand that I have not used for many many years, I don't know why, in my youth it was the number one go to, but for me it seems to have just got lost in the crowd.......well no more !

Largely due to my 13 year old Grandaughter and TV advertising !!  "Nan (we) have to try the new Rimmel Mascara "   note the royal we ?   I am thinking no actually I don't *have* to try it.

But as always I gave in, and *we* picked it up to try, to be honest I did think she was just taken in by Youtubers and the TV but claimed it gave the same look as wearing false lashes.  I did say that I would try it and then she could have it, Nanna lied !!!!    I will be getting her one of her own, this stuff is brilliant, it has the eye shaped arch brush, goes on like a dream, and seriously does curl your lashes, mine looked looooooong :)  it lasted throughout the day, didn't flake, no panda eye, honestly brilliant, and a £6.99  why wouldn't you ?

Rimmel Super Curler 24HR Mascara | Kate Dare to Go Nude 42


While *we* were getting this I also picked up the Rimmel Kate Dare to Go Nude Lipstick in shade 42, I am not a lipstick lover, I am more about lipgloss, but not being able to wear the dark colours that are the thing this season, I thought I would try the nude, it's actually quite nice, 42 is a shade that I think would suit anyone, it's really creamy, with a very slight sheen, stays on for a reasonable amount of time, and looked pretty good, if I say so myself.  £5.49

Superdrug Optimum PhytoDeluxe Day / Night Cream 40+


Superdrug Optimum PhytoDeluxe Day / Night Cream

Hiya Darlins

I am so pleased that this post has fallen in time for Mothers Day, if your Mum is anything like me she will love skincare.

Superdrug have really pushed the boat out with these, and have seriously given them a high end look, and superb quality for the price, I adore the sleek shiny silver grey packaging with pump action tops that dispense just the right amount for your face and neck, one more pump and you have the decolletage covered.

The key to this fabulous range is Platinum and the core of the Black Truffle !  yep I know that sounds strange, but known as The Black Diamond.   The white core has been known since ancient times to hold powerful amino acids. It has been produced as a range for 40+ skin,


Superdrug Optimum PhytoDeluxe Day / Night Cream 40+


Starting with the Optimum PhytoDeluxe indulgent SPF15 Day Cream.
While being super rich this lightweight cream absorbs easily instantly softening the skin, it has a light delicate fragrance but is not over perfumed.  I used this under foundation without primer for a day to see how long my foundation would last and whether or not the moisture held up during the day, as a lot don't, and you are left with dry skin in the afternoon. this did really well, foundation still in place, no signs of greasiness and still soft at the end of the day. what more could you ask ?

Optimum PhytoDeluxe Comforting Night Cream.
Again with Platinum and Truffle Extract, the night cream contains the added benefits of Shea Butter + Vitamin E.
Using this at night was a joy, it absorbs easily which is great news as there is nothing worse than going to bed with cream getting in your hair and on your pillow !
My skin felt instantly soft and smooth, and felt lovely in the morning still, with a much more hydrated appearance.

Both products are cruelty free, suitable for vegetarians and come with recyclable packaging, and as always with Superdrug own brands they 100% guarantee if you are not happy, return them for an instant refund. Not many companies are that confident.

Here's the best news. Currently these are on offer. both were £14.99 each and are now down to £7.48 each, but even better news if you buy them both you get a free Patisserie De Bain Gift set Worth over £10.00

Find the Superdrug Optimum Range Here

So in fact you are getting over £40.00 worth of product for less than £15.00 Crazy !

Grown Alchemist Mandarin and Rosemary Leaf Body Cream


Grown Alchemist Mandarin and Rosemary Leaf Body Cream Review


Hello My Gorgeous Reader

I don't know about you, but I am notoriously bad at looking after the skin on my body in the winter, hanging around nekid waiting for moisturiser to dry before getting dressed quite frankly gets on my wick.  Well I have discovered a body cream that literally sinks in allowing you to get dressed almost instantly.


Grown Alchemist Mandarin and Rosemary Leaf Body Cream Review


Grown Alchemist The Botanical Beauty Company from Australia have the most wonderful body cream in Mandarin & Rosemary Leaf.  If you have not come across Grown Alchemist before it really is worth taking a look at the Companies Philosophy  to get a real feel for this amazing brand.

Grown Alchemist Mandarin and Rosemary Leaf Body Cream Review


The Mandarin & Rosemary Leaf Body Cream comes in a generous 120ml squeeze recyclable Aluminium tube.  it is fully Organic Certified and Not tested on animals.  from opening the tube the fragrance just hits you, it has a natural soft clean citrusy scent that makes you want to take deep breaths, the cream isn't bad either !   Seriously, it is a gorgeous buttery coloured thick creamy texture that glides on like silk and sinks straight in, it is recommended that you concentrate on the driest areas first.  I actually used it allover first thing after showering,and my skin still felt hydrated at the end of the day which is really unusual for me.  I would call this an all round winner, to be honest I would probably carry this around as it also makes a fabulous hand cream.


Available at Feel Unique

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator | Ballerina

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator | Ballerina

Hi Darlins

The highlight of my day  ( get my clever pun ? )  was trying out this Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in the shade Ballerina from Laura Geller. 

I know a lot of ladies my age probably won't have used a highlighter before, we tend to stick with what we know and not trouble ourselves with the whole contour / highlight thing and stick with a bit of blusher, and that's ok if that's what you are happy with, but I urge you to try something new, I'm not saying we need to go the whole Kim Kardashian face contour, but what I am saying is that highlighting can give you a glow and a freshness like nothing else can,  there are girls reading this, thinking  "what is she talking about everyone uses highlighter ! "
  yes, everyone does nowadays, but us ladies of a certain age sometimes stick to only what we know.

Here is an example of how it gives just give cheekbones a glow and more definition.  There are lot's of make up videos on YouTube that will get you wanting to play with your face more :)


I personally have used highlighters for a while now, and have tried lots, from cheapies to quite pricey ones and they really do vary,  this particular one from Laura Geller I have found to be amazing, some have a tendency to be really dry and powdery and just highlight wrinkles !........No thanks.

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator | Ballerina


The consistency of this one while it is a powder the quality is soft and really well pigmented so you only need the smallest amount for the perfect glow.   The shade Ballerina I have found to be incredibly flattering, far more than my usual, white/silver tones.

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator | Ballerina


For highlighter fans, you will be amazed at the quality, the only downside..........it looks so gorgeous in it's pallet I didn't want to spoil it :)

Sachajuan Intensive Repair Shampoo | Conditioner | Straight and Shine Spray



Sachajuan Intensive Repair Shampoo | Conditioner | Straight and Shine Spray


Hi Darlins

You know that look and feel to your hair when you have been to the hairdressers ?  and as much as you try you can never replicate it at home, even if you buy the products, well forget all that, I have discovered a total hair miracle.

You may not have heard of Sachajuan it isn't a high street brand and is available at the likes of John Lewis, Net a Porter, Cult Beauty Space NK etc,  but once you have tried it you are so going to thank the lord you have discovered it.




Sachajuan Intensive Repair Shampoo | Conditioner | Straight and Shine Spray

Starting with the Shampoo, Sachajuan Intensive Repair Shampoo   I used about the size of a 10p amount, and it lathered instantly, the fragrance is really subtle with a hint of citrus, now here's the thing, being me I didn't read the bottle so had no expectations, the thing that totally blew me away was that I could run my fingers through my hair while shampooing, now that never happens, by hair is dry and damaged from years of colouring and bleaching, so to be able to do this is unheard of !!  The product I have since discovered has something called Ocean Silk Technology combined with UV protectants, this penetrates the follicle and remains after rinsing,  if I am totally honest I probably could have stopped at this stage my hair was so well conditioned.


On to the conditioner,  
Sachajuan Intensive Repair Conditioner oddly enough this had almost no fragrance when applied to wet hair, I actually love this, I have a thing about tons of clashing fragrances going on and then spoiling your perfume of choice.  I used about a 5p size amount as my hair was so soft from the shampoo, rinsed it out only to be left with the most amazing wet hair ever, I cannot usually even attempt to brush or comb my locks without serum or oil, but there was no need at all after using these two products, the comb just slid through.

I am way too lazy to blow dry, and rely on my GHD's to do the hard work of getting this bob in place, usually on rough drying with the hairdryer I am left looking like an explosion in a mattress factory, not today, I could have got away with leaving it non straightened, but I wanted to test out the award winning  Sachajuan Straight and Shine Spray 

Sachajuan Intensive Repair Shampoo | Conditioner | Straight and Shine Spray


Oh my lordy lord..........This is just a can of magic, no wonder it won the 2015 Hair Awards, I have never in my life experienced anything quite like it, sprayed onto dry hair prior to straightening it gave me * the look *  The just stepped out of the salon look at home, who would believe that possible ?  


I promise you will thank me.

Laura Geller Real Deal Concealer | Spackle Tinted Make-Up Primer

Laura Geller Real Deal Concealer | Spackle Tinted Make-Up Primer

Hi Darlins

as promised another little treat from Laura Geller Beauty this time it will create the perfect canvas for your cosmetic creation, Starting with Real Deal Concealer, they are not kidding calling it the real deal, I have never experienced a concealer quite like it, if you have anything at all to cover up this will do the trick, it's rich creamy highly pigmented formula is like coverage magic, you need the teeniest amount to cover any kind of blemish totally.   This 16.39 ml tube would last literally forever you need so little, it comes in 2 shades so would suit any skin tone.


Laura Geller Real Deal Concealer | Spackle Tinted Make-Up Primer


Next up in our quest for perfection is Spackle Tinted Make Up Primer in Champagne.  This ultra lightweight formula is not actually coloured although it looks it in the tube, the Champagne glow gives a candle lit finish, and really does soften the look of your skin, you could easily use this alone to give you a more even glowing looking to the skin, or if you are a die hard foundation lover like me, it really does give the best glow and smooth finish for a perfect foundation base.
When using this my foundation lasted longer, it refused to melt into wrinkles and lines as it would without a base.  The 59 ml tube contains a combination of goodness in the form of Witch Hazel extract, Chamomile and Aloe Vera, all of these help calm and soothe the skin, so it is doing good while looking good

Laura Geller Dramalash Maximum Volumising Mascara | Inkredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

Laura Geller Dramalash Maximum Volumising Mascara | Inkredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

Hi Darlins

Laura Geller probably better known in the USA than the UK, is a brand that needs massive praise, if you like the whole full on cake face, this is not the brand for you Laura Geller is subtle, quality and classy, nothing at all like me !

I do have quite a bit from Laura Geller to bring you over the next few weeks, but wanted to start with eyes, I am such a mascara snob it's not even funny, nothing to do with price as I love what works, not what costs most.



Laura Geller Dramalash Maximum Volumising Mascara | Inkredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

Laura Geller Dramalash Maximum Volumising Mascara | Inkredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner


My first attempt with this mascara was not a success, the brush is incredibly full and bushy, it is especially designed to be soft, oversized and XXL  and I found it quite overwhelming on first attempt, I asked one of my Grandaughters to try it out for me, and she instantly loved it !  not one to be beaten by a wand, I gave it another go, and totally fell in love, it gave me both volume and longer lashes, I could have got away with one coat, but did two and the result is here for you to see, and with vitamin B5 for conditioning, I love it !



Laura Geller Dramalash Maximum Volumising Mascara | Inkredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner





Laura Geller Dramalash Maximum Volumising Mascara | Inkredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner


My next trial was the Inkcredible Waterproof Gel Liner, in Blackbird. I love a twist up pencil, hate sharpening.  My first test of this was on the back of my hand ( as you do )  OMG it did NOT want to wipe off, a good sign to start. 

It is a soft easy to use pencil that glides easily on the lid, let me just point out here I am not an eye liner queen, but this was really easy to use, I also tested it as a khol and it worked perfectly on the water line, it stood up to a day's shopping and well into the evening, with no panda eyes either, this little tube of magic has a hidden secret with an invisible sharpener in the base to ensure precision lining.



Some things are nice to try, and sometimes products become staples, these are definitely on the staples list.

Dr Perricone No Lipgloss Lipgloss




Dr Perricone No Lipgloss Lipgloss review




Hiya Darlins 

this is a seriously cool product if you are a lover of a natural face look, I have previously posted about another product from this range the No blush blush  from Dr Perricone, now here we have the No lipgloss lipgloss.

Dr Perricone No Lipgloss Lipgloss review


I am a huge lover of glosses and prefer them to lipsticks for a softer look, but I do like to feel as though I am wearing make up, so this came as a bit of a shock to me, as it claims to be anti ageing blah blah, I was REALLY cynical, but very pleasantly surprised, firstly it is a light non sticky formula, a good sized 0.11oz and importantly is a non-chemical mineral-based SPF 15 with zinc oxide which helps protect the lips from harmful UVA/UVB rays, the thing I found totally amazing about this was that on applying it my lips instantly looked different, staring in the mirror I realised the colour had changed to the exact colour my natural lips were in my youth, until that point I hadn't in all honesty realised that they had faded with age ! seriously, who knew ?  it had never occurred to me before, the result was lovely, smoother, younger looking lips.  


Dr Perricone No Lipgloss Lipgloss review


Trust me, I know how nuts this sounds but it was a true revelation to me, I would use this on days when I wasn't wearing make up, or when using a light look.  It is so perfect for anyone that wants a natural healthy look.

To be fair, I should have known better than to be cynical, I have never been let down by Dr Perricone products ever before, and this was no exception.

Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush

Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush


Hi Darlins

as I am writing this it really is beginning to feel like spring, yesterday was the same, it was so nice it had me taking curtains down to wash  and getting them out on the washing line ! Spring cleaning starting a little too early me thinks :)

Talking of cleaning, I have recently been using a skin cleansing brush, Skinvigorate from Mary Kay. If you were unaware this top selling US brand is now available in the UK.


Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush

On Opening the box you are presented with the unit itself, 2 brush heads and 2 batteries, really easy to put the heads on, battery compartment was a little harder but I think this is due to the fact that it needs to remain waterproof.  So with the brush all set up I was ready to go, this small handy little unit has 2 speeds, I chose the gentle speed for my first use, wet the brush head in warm water, apply cleanser as usual, for my first outing I used an oil cleanser, and literally massaged the oil into my skin using small circular motions letting the brush do it's work, rinse and dry skin, you're  face is left feeling the cleanest it has ever been outside of a salon cleanse.



Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush


I am going to be 100% honest and say I have had no interest in this type of cleanse, and honestly thought it was just another gimmick. I am more than happy to say I was 100% WRONG having used it the first time it was instant love, and is now being used daily.  I have always used water based cleansers, either oil, or hot cloth types, but this just adds to the experience, and the beauty is although you are left totally cleaned, your skin does not feel * stripped * just ready to drink up your chosen moisturiser.


Available in the UK HERE Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush

Do you have experience of this type of cleansing ?  would love to know your thoughts.

Living Nature Radiance Night Oil

Living Nature Radiance Night Oil


Hi Darlins

my obsession with Oil continues with this gorgeous new discovery from New Zealand Brand Living Nature, basically they had me at the words Oil and Rose !

Living Nature is certified organic and has only the purest ingredients in its range, cruelty free as you would expect. Bought to the UK and supplied by Botanical Brands the complete range is now easily available.
With it's superb natural credentials I was more than happy to give this a try.


Living Nature Radiance Night Oil


On trialling this gorgeous amber oil the first thing that hit me was it's Rose fragrance, I personally love Rose but I know a lot of people don't, but don't be put off this is not a synthetic fake type of Rose fragrance, it is subtle and natural, you only need the tiniest amount, and one drop from the pipette is enough to cover your face and neck, the beauty of this amber nectar is that it can be added to your regular night cream or hand cream if desired .

I have used alone a LOT !  as you can see from the photo's ( naughty blogger ) should have taken photo's first.  It is a gorgeous relaxer and as you apply it the feeling of well being hits you as you breathe it in, waking up with soft glowing skin is also a bonus.

This unassuming little green bottle really is pretty deceptive, it holds a powerful punch in both skin treatment and the feeling of well being, definately one to watch :)

Perricone MD No Blush Blush




Perricone MD No Blush Blush


 Hiya Darlins

This time of year it's easy to look a bit jaded and tired, no tan, no healthy glow, instead of that gorgeous rosy glow children have when it's cold, we just look, well, quite frankly haunted lol.

This is where this unusual product comes in from the famous Dr Nick Pericone range.  I want to say blusher but fear that may be under valuing it, it is named No Blush Blush as it really does give a flush of natural looking colour to the cheeks, it actually makes your skin  look more healthy  rather than made up, this is so perfect for days when you just want to look great without the whole face full of make up, it has a breathable second skin effect with a non chemical mineral based SPF 30 Protecting from UVA and UVB rays.



Perricone MD No Blush Blush

The real beauty of this product is that whilst it has been designed to enhance the look of your skin, it is actually a working serum so is busy doing good while you are looking glowing, Win, Win.




You really do only need the tiniest amount of product, The recommended 1-3 drops in my opinion is a little too much, and one drop on each cheek was ample for me, it blends easily has a serum quality and with it's self adjusting technology it finds the perfect shade for your skin and just leaves you looking as though you are wearing nothing at all but and English rose glow.

NEW Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All Over Miracle Oil.

Hiya Darlins

NEW Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All Over Miracle Oil.


Yesterday I had possibly the most stressful day I have had in a long time, and got home totally and utterly drained, you know the kind of tiredness that makes you want to not speak to anyone.

The only Cure was a long soak to try and unwind.  I also used it as the opportunity to try out the New Eight Hour Cream All Over Miracle Oil from Elizabeth Arden.

NEW Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All Over Miracle Oil.


Of course you have heard of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream, who hasn't ?  I first discovered it in the 80's and has been the number one beauty staple ever since, enjoying celebrity cult status for as long as I can remember, my first time with this wonder cream was reading that Jerry Hall and Marie Helvin swore by it, good enough for me back then.

Now in 2016 we have what is quite rightly described as a Miracle Oil, I have NEVER experienced anything like it !  I would honestly be so bold to say it is the wonder product of the year, for it's multi purpose capabilities.
NEW Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All Over Miracle Oil.


Where else could you find a facial oil that doubles as a hair oil ? and then goes on to become  a cuticle oil, a body oil, with a deeply relaxing aroma to soothe away stress and leave you feeling totally and utterly pampered from head to toe ? 

The new "it" ingredient Tsubaki Oil which is extracted from the Camellia flower, contains Omega -6 and Omega-9 and rich in fatty acids, features in this new Beauty Must Have Marvel .


NEW Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All Over Miracle Oil.

I used this from head to toe last night and it is totally wonderful, while some products are hype, THIS totally lives up to every expectation of the quality we have come to expect from Elizabeth Arden .....watch out for this, it has shocked and amazed me, as you know I don't ever check prices until I have finished testing a product. 

THIS IS ONLY £29.00 !!!!!!!!  I nearly fell off my seat, I would have easily expected it to be double the price for the generous 100ml pump bottle.

 It is going with me on holiday, what else would I need ? 


Check it out here Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All Over Miracle Oil.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this, to see if you are as excited as me about this gorgeous, gorgeous discovery.

What's Your Blogging Agenda ?

Hi Darlins

this post is really for all the bloggers out there, I don't suppose it will be of much interest to anyone else :)

I keep seeing various posts / statuses that quite frankly baffle me, there are lots of various little sayings floating around that are specifically used by bloggers, ( of all ages )  before I start getting anyones back up, this is not a criticism of the way anyone works, it is merely an observation on my part.

So, really here's the thing ?  why do you blog ?

I very recently had a conversation with a well known blogger/vlogger who asked me outright why I blog, the question kind of took me back a bit as I had never given it a lot of thought, and the dumb answer would be  * I don't know, I just do *  what she said really gave me food for thought, in her opinion everyone has an agenda. 

That really got me thinking about a lot of the things I have seen online,  terms like * blogging goals *  *upping my insta game *  etc.    WTF does all this mean ? someone please explain to me what the hell a blogging goal  is ?  and why you would plan your instagram timeline ?  maybe I am just old, or not down with the kids, but I honestly thought instagram was just a photo platform, not a medium in which to impress people to the point that you thought about how it looked to others ?  which led me onto the thinking about why people blog ?   I seem to see so many bloggers out there desperate to impress other bloggers, or envying another persons work, that's all well and fine, BUT blogging is about you, your style, your loves etc, and while it's ok to admire someone else's gorgeous pictures and want to improve your own, needing to impress anyone else is a disaster for your self esteem.  People read your work therefore YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH !

My agenda ?  I gave up my business, housework alone is not stimulating enough for me, I love talking be it in Real life or on my blog. 

Would love some comments on this subject, good or bad, I am a big girl and can take it.

Verso Skincare 1 2 3 4


 Hi Darlins

Today I wanted to bring you the ultimate kit from the skincare company Verso, as you know I have written about this brand before so won't go into the history of Verso again, you can read it here 

Verso Skincare 1 2 3 4 review


Verso's Patented Super 8 encourages cells to mimic the behaviour of younger skin, and this set brings you the  1 2 3 essentials, 


Verso Skincare 1 2 3 4 review

Number 1 is the Foaming Cleanser 

This 90ml pump action bottle is a bit deceptive with it's title, it's not just a foaming cleanser, it is a rich, thick creamy jem of a cleanser, you smooth it all over in small circular motions and rinse off with cool water in the mornings and warm water in the evenings. really gentle with a mild fresh fragrance.  It left my skin feeling super clean  with no irritation or redness and ready for moisturiser. 


Verso Skincare 1 2 3 4 review


Number 2 Day Cream 
 This 50 ml Pump delivers just the right amount of product in one pump, With Verso's famous Retinal 8 formula, which is 8 times more powerful than standard Retinol but formulated to be kind on skin, this cream leaves your face feeling soft, fresh and hydrated, it actually lasts all day, which is my must have for any good moisturiser, it's no good ending the day looking dry and tired, this is non greasy and has a moisture that holds throughout the day.


Number 3 Night Cream

50ml pump again delivers just the right amount for your face and neck, at night I like to use my creams on my decolletage, so an additional pump is needed. again with Retinol 8, you know that you have super goodness working it's magic throughout the night. A light no greasy formula which is ideal for bedtime.


Verso Skincare 1 2 3 4 review




Number 4 is the Super Facial Serum
I like to use this before Moisturising and after cleansing, it just gives the perfect base for moisturiser for me, although I have heard of users skipping the moisturiser level and just using the serum alone, I think it's a personal preference, but as my skin is mature and leans towards dryness I like to give it all the help I can. And this is the perfect combination for me.  30ml pump container again, just one pump is all that's needed.

Verso Skincare 1 2 3 4 review


The thing I love about Verso, is how it under estimates itself, the simple clean packaging is understated and hold no grand statements, giving you little clue to the goodness inside, in my opinion it is one of those brands that doesn't need an all singing  and dancing troop of cheerleaders, the products speak for themselves.



Numbers  1 2  3  can be purchased together in the Time Reverse Series Box,  Verso Time Reverse Series  or individually  Verso skincare  if you prefer,   number 4 Super facial Serum is available separately.

Goldfadden MD Doctors Scrub

Hiya Darlins.

as you know I am a bit obsessive with cleansers, masks, exfoliators etc, I have seriously been considering a full on peel of late but honestly don't know if I am brave enough to go through the whole lizard look for days.
Goldfadden MD Doctors Scrub review


I honestly don't know if I am eloquent enough to full describe my excitement to you about this product that I have tried, tested and become totally obsessed with.
Goldfadden MD Doctors Scrub review


You may or may not have heard of Goldfadden MD   I had heard of it, but never tried anything from the range until I was fortunate enough to receive this in the post to review. On opening the jar I just had the feeling it was going to be good, it is full of thousands of tiny finely milled rubies.
Goldfadden MD Doctors Scrub review


 Keen to give it a try I followed the instructions, using the product with dry skin and dry fingers, you only need the smallest amount. OMG it was like using the finest ever sander on your skin, I cannot imagine you would get a better result from a salon  microdermabrasion session.  This product is NOT for anyone not serious about their skincare, It could come as a bit of a shock to you at just how powerful it is, I was in my element, I have used multiple scrubs before, mostly feel as though they have a couple of grains that actually scratch rather than exfoliate.  I was in exfoliation heaven, The key here is gently does it, no need to go at your face as though you were sanding furniture, the result was just amazing, slightly pink, glowing and honestly the smoothest I have ever felt my skin in my life !!!

Goldfadden MD Doctors Scrub review


Followed by a night oil, I woke up with the best skin I could possibly have imagined. 
This is totally how I would expect to feel if having a salon treatment. The beauty though is that I have used a tiny amount out of the 100ml jar, so I can scrub away to my hearts content.

I am not going to ramble on about ingredients etc you can read that for yourself , but what I will say, is Goldfadden MD were the first Dermatologist developed natural brand of skincare .

Organic, no animal testing, paraben free, mineral oil free, alcohol free, silicone free, gluten free, 100% vegetarian. for all skin types.

This is my first foray into this brand, it 100% will not be the last.
