Ciaté Paint Pots Wait Until Dark Paint Pot

What could have been better for the Halloween week to have been accepted for a trial of this gorgeous nail polish by Ciaté!! This is brand that I have not used before and I was very excited to trial not only a new brand but a colour or varnish that I would not usually choose. Purple varnish is a real statement colour and from the photographs this polish certainly did appeal to my darker side!

When the varnish arrived it was housed in a lovely black oblong box with a cut out window in the front which displays the bottle perfectly inside. The bottle itself is a very clever and appealing design. The glass is curved on the back and is designed to ergonomically sit in your hand for ease of application. The brush has a very practical long lid which makes the holding of the brush and application very easy (there is nothing worse than trying to keep a steady hand when applying polish with a tiny handle). Ciaté state that their brush is flat with 250 bristles which makes application smoother and easier. I loved the little black bow on the front of the bottle which is a lovely aesthetic touch to the overall design.

My hands are most certainly hard working hands overall and with such a dark colour I was dubious as to the capability and staying power of this varnish. With dark colours I always use a base coat to prevent any staining and a top coat to aid longevity of the varnish.

The colour of the varnish inside the bottle was exciting. A dark plum purple with a light shimmer and a pearlescence that gives the dark polish a subtle depth. The application with the brush was certainly easy but the first coat was very thin and watery. My fear was unfounded as the second coat instantly provided the full depth of colour and it is beautiful!! The shimmer is not strong (I maybe would have preferred a little more) but the colour is rich and deep. Application with the long brush was very smooth and although this is not the fastest drying varnish I have used the drying time was good. After the application of my final top coat I was thrilled with results and smooth finish of the colour.

Not only am I a keen gardener I am currently renovating a property and this has certainly put my Ciaté varnish to the test. The top coat I used certainly increases the staying power of my varnish but my hands have taken a cruel battering in recent weeks. This varnish was very resilient, even to the worst treatment of my hands and nails and I gained 4 days of wear before any deterioration showed. This manifested itself in small chips but where the colour was not chipped, it remained visually perfect! Bearing in mind this is not a true gauge for most wearers as you would not usually subject your hands to the level of work that I am currently partaking in.

The varnish is very easy to remove and left no staining at all. The product has a medium price range and its performance is well worth the investment. I have no doubt that this bottle would last a very long time and therefore excellent value for money. A high performer with good looks and performance, perfect for bringing out your inner vamp!!

Opulentia Organics Super Nail Nourisher

20140702 170842

I was excited to be accepted for this trial as on a daily basis my hands and nails suffer all manner of abuse. I am a keen gardener and crafts person so my past times do not tend to be sympathetic to my nails or hands. My nails are generally prone to dryness and brittleness so I was keen to put this product to the test.

When the nourisher arrived I loved the quirky little tin. It is a robust screw top silver tin that is perfect for a hand bag or make-up case. Even if you are a little over zealous in tightening lids on your products this lid is very easy to open, even with greasy hands due to its cleverly designed ridged grip. Upon opening the tin for the first time I noted that the product was of a balm consistency and opaque golden yellow in colour. From the size of the tin you could immediately see that there was a generous amount of product in the tin.

20140702 170924

To apply I only needed a light touch of balm (less than a pea size) for one hand. Upon contact with the heat of your skin the balm immediately melts into a luxurious oil that goes a remarkably long way. So much so, all five fingers on one hand were treated equally with product from just the smallest touch.

The consistency of the balm/ oil is such that it allows a beautiful and beneficial massage into the nails. You should be careful not to over dispense your product as not only does it lead to unnecessary wastage but you will find that your hands are covered to the point of stickiness. Less is more with this highly concentrated balm.

It is suggested that you only use the product at night only. I completely agree with this instruction as after initial application it does take some time for your nails to absorb the product fully. Remember your nails do not absorb products as easily as you skin so you need to accept a little stickiness at first!

Another important tip is to ensure that this little tin is stored in a cool dry place. In the warm weather or sunlight the balm quickly turns to oil which could be disastrous when opening the tin! This small issue only gives credit to the product as proof that no nasties are added to keep it in a solid state.

20140702 171003

The balm has a beautiful citrus lemon fragrance that makes application pleasurable and addictive. Admittedly I have been prone to sneaking a few extra applications during the day. After just one application I noted that the dryness around my nail beds and cuticles was completely gone and the benefit is long lasting. My nails have increased their growth rate phenomenally and they are generally better condition than they have been for a very long time. The balm softens the cuticles beautifully and gives an overall delicate polished look to the nails.

As I like to experiment with my products I have also been applying the balm to my hands as a treatment application before my hand cream. This has had fantastic results for me and in combination my hands are looking much smoother and nourished than just using my hand cream alone. Not stopping there I have also used the balm for my toe nails which have benefitted from the same results.

20140702 171206

This balm may be small but it is mighty! The old adage “some of the best things come in small packages” certainly describes this product. Packed with so many natural oils, waxes and butters it is a highly concentrated product. I have been using this several times a day for over two weeks and I am halfway down the tin. The value for money is fantastic! The balm offers rapid and noticeable results and if you are looking for a nail treatment that won’t break your budget then this is certainly the one to try! A real SOS product.

E:30/11/13, Spotner | Win 1 of 14 Anti Agespot Appli-Pen Hands & Body

This month we have teamed up with Spotner to introduce its range of revolutionary treatments for age spots. 

14 of our members will be offered the chance to test and review a full-sized tube of the Anti-Age Spot Appli-Pen™ Hands & Body (2ml, RRP £19.99 each).

While its innovative soft-tip pen design promises an easy, precise and quick application, its unique balance of botanical extracts treat the pigmentations harmlessly.

What are Age Spots?

The term 'age spots', also known as 'sun spots' or 'solar lentigo', refers to blemishes on the skin that, over time, appear on your face, hands and body.

These hyperpigmentation have nothing to do with how old you are. They are very common in adults over 40, not only because they have been exposed to the sun for a longer period of time, but also because their skin is less able to recover from sun exposure. 

   

How can Age Spots be treated? 

Although they are usually harmless, age spots can be considered unsightly and therefore bothersome.

There are various, fairly 'aggressive' ways of preventing them from enlarging, or multiplying, or even removing them, such as chemical peels, laser treatment and harsh prescription-strength retinoids.

Spotner Hands & Body has revolutionised the treatment of age spots

It contains a unique combination of ingredients that safely help to reduce the pigmentation. The formation of new age spots will be prevented by the use of SPF 50 UV (A+B)-Filters in combination with different lightening substances.

Age spots are removed by the action of alpha-hydroxy acids that help to increase the renewal rate of the skin: removing the age spots, and giving a smoother, younger appearance. Alpha-hydroxy acids have been used for centuries for a younger appearance of the skin. Studies have shown that alpha-hydroxy acids are able to reverse the effects of photo aged skin¹.

A Modern Approach to Natural Beauty that Works for Me

  • Published in Dese

ThisWorks

After first discovering the organic brand ThisWorks in a stocking filler beauty box from Latest in Beauty just over a year ago, when I received a delicious sample of ThisWorks No Wrinkles Extreme Moisturiser, I decided it was time to get to know this brand better. At that time, ThisWorks products weren't quite as easy to find as they are now, but larger branches of Boots are now stocking this brand, so everyone can now get hold of items without much difficulty.

I started using four products by this brand, and, to ensure that I would know their effects, I resisted the temptation to dip into all my other delightful beauty box samples, which continued to arrive... I promised myself that I would use up both items which you will find in a duo set plus two addional items I had received from another source and report back to you on the efficacy of this brand. My sizes were travel sizes, but those available at present are full sized items.

I decided that this range would be my 'spring regime' which would need to keep my skin in good condition and stand up to my punishing morning schedule. As I get up at 5.30 a.m. and leave the house at 6.30 a.m., there would be no time for annoying, fiddly containers. Everything needed to be quick and easy, and the same for my evening routine, when I returned, exhausted and ready for bed.

The Products

The duo products plus the additonal items were:

  • perfect eyes recovery cream
  • perfect cleavage firming lotion
  • perfect hands intense moisture
  • enjoy multi-tasking lotion

The multi-tasking lotion was one of the suppementary items that did not feature in the duo, however it complemented the other face products. In addition, being an everywhere moisturiser, I could test it out on my eczema prone patches of skin, to really give the brand a run for its money, and let you know how suitable it is for sufferers. This is always a question for me when choosing a new product, although I am drawn to products with fragrance, which aren't always suitable for my skin.

The product sizes ranged from 15ml to 30ml depending on the product, and they all lasted about a month to six weeks, with daily use. This excluded the hand cream, which I forgot to use regularly, as it was in my handbag, and there was still a little product left after the others were finished.

perfect cleavage firming lotion

This product came in a handy 15ml rigid plastic, pump-action container. The pump action enabled quick and clean dispensing of this product onto fingertips. There was no wastage and the pump delivered cleanly without any residue left on the nozzle. This was very important for my sleepy start in the morning!

The aroma of the product was intense and intoxicating, and I felt as though I was having my own mini spa treatment each day. I felt relaxed by the scent of essential oils contained within the product, even before it touched my skin.

The little went a long way of this product. I used about three pumps for my entire neck and decollete area. With this amount of usage the 15ml lasted about a month. I am quite greedy with this kind of product, feeling my skin needs as much nourishment as possible, and I felt that this was a good length of time for the product to last, given my usage.

The product was quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple, and giving me a feeling of well-being, which was generated by a combination of the silky texture of the product with the amazing aroma it provided.

perfect eyes recovery cream

Next on the agenda was the eye cream. Again, I tend to be quite greedy with this kind of product, feeling my skin needs all the help it can get, especially with such an early morning start, which often follows a shortened night's sleep. Although I know that a minimal amount of eye cream is generally used, as this kind of product can cause puffiness, this is not a symptom that I generally suffer from.  I often over use this kind of product, which I am told can reduce its efficacy. This particular product stated that it helped with dark circles. Again, this is not something I usually suffer from, but last autumn, I found it very difficult to adjust to my 5.30 start and circles were a perpetual and persistent problem for me at the time!

The product had a faintly wheaty smell, but it was barely perceptible. It was virtually odourless. I confess this secretly diappointed me a little, as I have come to associate this brand with strong, natural scent derived from essential oils, and it is a feature that I actively seek when I use their products.

The product size was 15ml had the same rigid plastic, pump action container as the serum, and delivered just as cleanly. The product lasted about six-seven weeks. The cream was light-textured and opaque. I found it a little sticky on my eye lids, but it was absorbed fairly quickly. The stickiness could have been avoided by using less product or limiting use to the browbone. However, my eyes were feeling constantly tired and I hoped the cream would ease the sensation.

I paid particular attention to the product's effect on my circles, but I didn't really feel that it was effective for me, even after a month of use. The circles persisted and I didn't feel that the product changed the degree to which I suffered.

enjoy multi-tasking lotion

This product did not come in the duo set, but complemented the other face products, so I used them all together. Of all the products used, this is turned out to be my favourite, as its versatility makes it a great all-rounder.

This travel sized product was contained in a squeezy plastic tube with a screw cap, on which it stood. Dispensing the product was not as simple as with the other items, nor regulating the quantity used. However, the full sized product comes in the usual rigid container with a dispensing nozzle.  The scent of the product was delightful and uplifting. It had a powerful aroma, which encouraged me to breathe deeply, and which I found relaxing to use. The density of the product was mid-textured, and it smoothed across the skin very easily.

I found that I wanted to use a little on my hands, which reduced my usage of the dedicated hand cream. I put a little on the patches of skin where I suffer from eczema, as I generally moisturise these sections of skin morning and night with aqueous cream to prevent flare up. I swapped the aqueous cream for the product to see if my skin could tolerate a scented cream for this purpose.

I found this product a delight and my skin lapped it up. It left the surface a little damp for a few minutes, and I wasn't able to apply SPF straight away until the cream had been absorbed. However, I felt it was worth it. The scent of this product is quite strong, and some might find that they dislike this aspect. For me it was a bonus, as I was actively seeking a product that delighted all senses, and didn't upset my sensitive skin.

perfect hands intense moisture

This product had less use than the other items, partly because of the versatility of the Multi-tasking lotion, and partly because it was in my handbag, and I often didn't have time to apply it once I arrived at work.

The container is made of a squeezy tube with a cap that has a flip top. I found this useful as it doesn't undo itself and make a mess in your bag, nor will you accidentally lose the cap, especially when out and about or you are trying to do a balancing act on public transport, as is generally the case for me. The cream itself has a mid-to-rich texture, which is readily absorbed by the skin. It hydrates well and is effective for extensive periods of time. Despite the fact that I didn't get to use this product as often as the others from the set, the rose scent was delicious and relaxing, and I really enjoyed every moment of its application. However, I would say that I felt rather self conscious using it in a crowded location, such as on public transport, during the commute to work. I was aware that the scent was exceedingly powerful, and may not be to everyone's taste in the early morning. I thought this might bother fellow passengers.

Brand Ethics & Awards

Since their launch in 2003, ThisWorks has won many prestigious awards, including those from Beauty Bible, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Red and InStyle as well a being a CEW finalist brand.

The brand boasts 'all natural' products, and they don't use unnecessary chemicals in formulations including: phthalates, sulphates, synthetic colours and fragrance, parabens, GMOs, mineral oils, petrolatum, propylene glycol.

As well as being 'results driven' they are a socially responsible brand ensuring that their products use recyclable materials for packaging, their ingredients aren't tested on animals, those raw ingredients come from sustainable sources and fair traded products, use of organic ingredients where possible, and they support Kid's Company as their charity to give back to the community.

For more information about this charity, click this link: http://www.kidsco.org.uk/

Price and Convenience

Two of the four items used are available as part of a duo set of full sized products. I had travel sizes for my trial and I found that the sizes contained enough product to last at least a month of twice daily use for face, neck and decollete (plus hands and forearms daily). The sizes were small enough to carry to the gym or for overnight for travel, which I felt was a bonus, without having to purchase a separate, small sized item.

  • the current purchase price of the duo set which includes both perfect cleavage firming lotion & perfect hands intense moisture  60ml & 75ml respectively costs £37 and I am aware that this is a reduced from the normal price of £55. 
  • enjoy multi-tasking lotion 120ml £25.00
  • perfect eyes recovery cream 15ml £28.00

Currently the items available from this brand are full sized items in the sets, however you should keep a look out for travel sets, which are often available during the summer, as these are a convenient and less expensive way to explore this award winning, and truly ethical, brand.
