Beauty: The Universal Makeup Beauty Box #POWEREDBYFEELUNIQUE

Posted on October 5, 2017

Hi Guys!

I must admit a while ago I thought beauty boxes had had their day. There seemed to be lots of products being regurgitated time and time again, and I think BB fans were getting a bit bored. Well how wrong was I! (Though I still think that was true in terms of repeated products) – but beauty boxes are now more popular than ever, and I can’t keep up with how many new ones have popped up, even over the last 6 months.

One of the newer offerings is from FeelUnique, who have just launched a trio of carefully curated Beauty Boxes and On-the-Go Kits. These special edits have been hand selected in-house by their beauty experts, and given their Powered by Feelunique stamp of approval…

Feelunique Best of Beauty boxes are designed to take the hard work out of finding game-changing beauty at amazing vale. Each edit contains expert selected beauty products all packaged up into one beauty box. Kicking off with Universal Makeup, Powered by Feelunique will launch more exciting boxes over the coming months.

I’ve checked the FeelUnique site and at the moment there are three different beauty box options available –

The Universal Makeup Beauty Box, which is what I have, includes a specially selected range of makeup products from some of FeelUnique’s favourite brands. The Skin Glow Edit Box, which includes everything you need for radiant, glowing skin. Each box contains deluxe or full size products, plus leaflet with tips & advice on how best to use them, as well as a Discount Code to get 10% off these products on your next purchase. And the Nichola Joss Beauty Box – Nichola Joss is a celebrity facialist as well as Feelunique’s very own Skincare Ambassador. Her box contains a curated selection of skincare essentials, including everything you need for a healthy and glowing complexion.

The Universal Makeup Beauty Box contains a fantastic selection of makeup, from both well known brands as well as a couple of lesser-known ones too (which I think is great as I love discovering new brands in beauty boxes) Included are four full size products and two travel sizes –

I was particularly happy to find the Nude By Nature Translucent Finishing Powder in the box, this is a really underrated brand that should definitely get more love! The Laura Geller Spackle Primer is a classic product that every beauty love should own, and Pro Hygiene Collection is a brand that I hadn’t heard of, so I’m looking forward to trying out their Makeup Spray.

I make out the box to roughly be worth £72.91, so with it costing only £28.00 and including four full sized products, I think this a really good deal.

The FeelUnique Universal Makeup Beauty Box is £28.00 and available at FeelUnique now.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart Hydrating Shield

Posted on August 14, 2016

Elizabeth-Arden-Prevage-City-Smart-Hydrating-Shield

Hi Guys!

Pollution isn’t something you’d necessarily associate with beauty and skincare, but environmental aggressors such pollution, smoke and UV rays are in fact constantly taking a toll your skin without you realising. In reaction to this, Elizabeth Arden have developed their own ‘invisible skin shield‘ to protect, prevent further damage, and strengthen the skin.

Elizabeth-Arden-Prevage-City-Smart-Hydrating-Shield-review

Elizabeth Arden’s research has found that 80% of all signs of skin aging are due to environmental aggressors – which really is a staggering statistic…

Exposure to UV rays and pollution—particularly in urban areas— wreaks havoc on skin, right down to its DNA. Sun exposure is well known to be a major cause of visible skin aging and now recent studies reveal the need to also shield the skin from air pollutants called ambient particulate matter, which generates excess free radicals which interfere with skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin and retain moisture.

Prevage City Smart was then developed as a daily use product, offering triple action protection –

Protect: Anti-Pollution Shield Technology forms an invisible protective barrier to help prevent harmful toxins and pollution particles from penetrating skin. 100% Mineral Broad Spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen filters out UVA and UVB rays.

Prevent: A patent-pending Anti-Pollution Complex is comprised of an exclusive antioxidant blend of Idebenone, the world’s single most powerful antioxidant, Green Tea, Thiotaine, Ferulic Acid and L-Carnosine, to neutralize free radical damage caused by pollution and UV exposure. In addition, City Smart also helps to prevent the appearance of future signs of skin aging, including lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

Strengthen: A DNA Enzyme Complex formulated with purified enzymes helps protect against free radical damage and supports skin’s natural repair process against oxidative stress. Skin’s elastin and collagen matrix are protected and its natural recovery process is strengthened resulting in healthier, more resilient looking skin.

This really is an excellent product to use as a final step in your skincare regime. It doesn’t matter how old you are or what skin type you have, this hydrating and multi-active product is suitable for all. It’s also worth mentioning that Prevage City Smart also contains a universal tint with optical diffusers which works well with all skin tones, to help even out the complexion.

Elizabeth Arden city Smart is £55.00 for 40ml and available now at Boots.
