Fresh n’ Foamy Body Polish

Bliss® Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub is a fresh vibrantly scented body scrub that lathers up for a gentle sudsy, smoothing, softening skin cleansing and exfoliating experience.

20130826-155516.jpgBenefits:
Sugar granules gentle exfoliate and smooth skin, that dissolve easily after rinsing.
Vitamins A, C and E to protect your skin.
Sunflower Oil to keep skin soft and supple.
Orange and Pepper deliver a warm, clean and invigorating scent.

20130826-155842.jpgUse on damp skin in the shower in circular motions to buff away full skin to reveal energized and polished supple skin.

The smell is subtle citrus with warm undertones, the texture is just to my liking, not scratchy but rounded and enjoyable. The foamy part is a nice surprise which makes it feel like a luxurious experience.

20130826-160007.jpgMy skins feels smooth, supple and moisturised and polished, I don’t even require moisturiser really but still apply.

At £28.60 340ml It’s a little pricey compared to my all time favorite “Soap and Glory Sugar Crush” £8 300ml (another of Marcia Kilgores fabulous beauty lines)

Overall this product looks pretty, is high quality, no fuss, does exactly what it claims and feels luxurious, so I’m gonna give it the thumbs up for a great pre/post summer body scrub!

bliss® triple oxygen instant energizing eye gel

This cooling, hydrating gel formula breathes new life into eyes to deflate puff instantly and fade the appearance of fine lines with spherical soft focus powders.

20130818-213410.jpg I apply it in the mornings patting it around my eye area under my tinted moisturiser. It’s gel formula is easily absorbed and cooling which I like, especially on mornings I am suffering with puffiness due to hay fever. It doesn’t have any perfume which is good. It de-puffs and softens my fine lines, instantly looking like I’ve had 10 hours sleep!

20130818-214208.jpgSo here comes the science bit:

Caffeine: Detoxifies tissue, reducing the appearance of fat deposits and excess fluid that contributes to puffy eyes.

Soft Focus Powders: Blurs skin imperfections by filling in wrinkles and fine lines. Leaves a subtle glow.

Oat Kernel Extract: Immediately firms undereye area and adheres to the skin to continually tense and smooth skin.

Beech Shoot: Preserves elasticity of the skin, hydrates and improves tissue oxygenation and helps prevent wrinkles.

Vitamin C: Fights the aging process by brightening skin discolorations and stimulating collagen.

Regenerative Soy Plant Actives: Boosts oxygen levels to skin, nourishes skin with mineral salts, amino acids and peptides to support natural cell metabolism.

The 15ml bottle costs £42 and should last 3 months or more. It’s not cheap but it does wake up tired eyes!

bliss triple oxygen instant energizing mask™

20130615-112957.jpgThis is like a mini facial in a bottle. I’ve used it 3 times and completely hooked already! I love that I can use it in the shower in the morning, it goes on damp skin, the consistency is a gel, it smell is subtle but of fresh oranges, it really wakes me up and my skin in the morning!

20130615-113247.jpgMassage in, the gel consistency is light and non sticky, easy to distribute all over the face avoiding the delicate eye area. As you massage the gel it activates and little bubbles start appearing, it smells gorgeous!

20130615-113729.jpgThen it forms into a full froth, this is the exciting bit. It’s a really nice feeling on the skin you can feel the bubbles doing their thing! It feels fresh and luxurious and most important of all I have time to use it as my daily (3 times a week) routine.

20130615-114225.jpgLeave on for 5 mins, which gives me enough time to wash my hair! Then after 5mins rinse off and pat dry. Tone and moisturise and normal. I use bliss triple oxygen +c energizing mask, see my post https://secondblonde.wordpress.com/2013/03/17/bliss-triple-oxygen-c-energizing-cream/ Team up with the bliss triple oxygen instant energizing eye gel. I’m about to start using this so will post my review.

Results: Fresh clean energized skin, completely rid of dullness to reveal skin that looks polished and like you’ve had 10hours sleep!

Vanilla & Bergamot Body Butter

This utterly delicious Vanilla & Bergamot body butter is almost good enough to eat!
Without a sickly sweet smell it will turn the scaliest skin smooth. Containing coconut oil and vitamin E it deeply nourishes and leaves skin highly moisturised with out a greasy feel. The scent is not over powering and lasts all day and makes you feel all warm inside. An all te favourite of mine and a cult beauty product. I slather it on after showering with the Vanilla & Bergamot Soapy Suds.

bliss triple oxygen + c energizing cream

20130317-143301.jpg

This light weight gel moisturiser inject’s life into my “London” underground commuting, traffic polluted skin! Use morning and night and simply massage in for 30 seconds. Mornings I layer with my usual tinted moisturiser. It’ makes a great base as it’s light weight.

20130317-143634.jpgIt’s quite pricey at £46 so watch out as it is easy to use too much due to it’s runny consistency, but worth the fresh glowy out if the shower result!
Oh and it has a subtle orange aroma while you gently work it into your skin.

Summer Skin – 4 Steps to beautiful skin

Kelly’s 4-step summer skincare regimen would help you to get gorgeous skin you’ve always dreamt of. Follow the instructions carefully and enjoy wonderful results.
1 Exfoliation
Gentle skin exfoliation is one of the most important and the first step to get gorgeous skin.
Skin moisturising, nourishment, tan and other important gorgeous skin components would appear useless without proper exfoliation.
It is skin exfoliation that provides skin pore opening, nourishing substances absorption
 and skin smoothing.
We Love Bliss lemon+Sage Body Scrub;

2 Moisturising
Without proper moisturising our skin undoubtedly suffers at any time of the year, but in summer the problem is greater.  Thus it is very important to find a proper moisturising remedy that perfectly
suits your skin type. Daily shower gel usage can lead to extreme skin dryness. Therefore opt for shower gels containing natural oils and don’t neglect the usage of after-shower skin moisturisers.
We Love Liz Earl 
Nourishing Botanical Body Cream;
3 Skin Elasticity
Skin elasticity is an integral component of gorgeous skin that can be easily achieved
 with proper skin care remedies
 and regular physical activity. Opt for skincare remedies stimulating collagen production. It would make your skin firmer.
Use various anti-cellulite remedies coupled with modeling creams. The first group is set for getting rid of extra pounds while the second one would help to lift your skin.
We Love Soap & Glory’s Sit Tight;

4 Tan
Everyone knows for sure that direct sun rays are very dangerous for our skin, nowadays cosmetic manufacturers produce lots of various self-tanners among which are:
Tanning moisturisers, Self-tanning lotions containing shimmering particles which conceal skin imperfections,
 such as cellulite or stretch marks
We Love Dove Summer Glow;
And…
We Love Piz Buin Tan Intensifier SPF15;
