Sorry, I was late with the video and I’m even later with this post! It’s quite a mish-mash, this favourites video; jewellery, sunscreens, a pair of ballet pumps… You can read more about the wonderful lightweight sunscreens in last week’s post here and I’ll be doing a more in-depth review of Benefit’s Push-Up Eye Liner very soon, so keep an eye out for that. (An eye out. Get it? No?) And I’m sorry, but I make a bit of a mistake in the video; I thought that Jan Marini’s eye cream was £14. God only knows why, because I’ve got a few Jan Marini things and they’re anything but cheap! The eye cream is 14ml, so perhaps that’s where I got it wrong. But anyway, it’s a good eye cream in terms of effects (I have found it to be quite brightening and tightening in the undereye area) but it’s not the most pleasant in texture. I think it’s quite sticky and so I use it at night. For me, it was a bit of a product rave when I thought that it cost £14 but at £49 I think it needs to have a more pleasing texture to bring it up to speed with the competition! It can be quite difficult to apply makeup on top of it if it dries too thickly.
On the other hand, I have an unconditional product rave and that’s the MD Formulations Antioxidant Moisture Gel. It gives a hit of moisture but leaves no residue whatsoever. Great for the summer if you just want something very light but effective to pop on beneath your sunscreen, or if you have incredibly oily skin and you want hydration without all of the other strings that are usually attached! If you want something, also, to follow your spot treatment such as Effaclar Duo, this could be a nice option.
Right. On with the vid! If you can’t see it below then – usual drill – click here. All of the links are below the video pane.
