BareMinerals Brilliant Future Age Defense and Renew Serum

Brilliant Future Age Defense and Renew Serum is one of four new corrective treatments from cult brand bareMinerals.

These targeted treatment serums have been designed to treat different skin concerns, such as age prevention, skin volumising anti blemish and there is also an age prevention eye cream.

Each hero product contains mineral-ignited ingredients combined with different botanicals and naturally derived ingredients to create a powerful, gentle and effective treatment. 

Now I’m in my thirties, skin ageing is one of my primary skin concerns so I opted to try their Brilliant Future Age Defense and Renew Serum (£42).

This particular corrective helps to address the early signs of ageing such as fine lines, skin fatigue and rough textured skin while renewing your skin’s natural luminosity through a variety of powerful, botanical ingredients.

Key Ingredients include;

Manganese: A mineral used to help support skin’s defense against signs of ageing.

Vitamin C: A valued nutrient used to help increase skin luminosity and radiance.

Chai Hu Extract: Referred to as the “harmony herb”, Chai Hu is known to help enhance skin’s resilience and resist visible signs of ageing.

Olive Leaf Extract: Used for centuries to promote beauty and wellness, and valued today for enhancing skin’s vibrancy.

Youth Peptide: Designed to help combat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The serum itself (aside from being a bugger to photograph!) is gorgeous.

Housed within a simple yet chic, heavy glass bottle with a precision dropper the milky white serum almost has an iridescent quality to it.

Lightweight and instantly absorbed it immediately brightens your skin and is particularly brilliant at helping to make you look more vibrant and awake of a morning!

It possesses a really delicate scent which actually is barely noticeable and leaves your skin feel soft and smooth from the first application.

Designed to be used after cleansing and prior to moisturising, I’ve been using it twice a day for a month and I’m really thrilled with the results.

I love that you can see an immediate difference when using the product in terms of your skins luminosity and after 4 weeks of use my skin is noticeably softer, feels more toned and generally looks more vibrant.

While I can’t say that I’ve noticed a huge difference to my fine lines, they’ve certainly got no worse and I reckon that due to the overall appearance of healthier and more radiant skin they are perhaps slightly less noticeable.

If you’re on the look-out for a new anti ageing serum then I can highly recommend the new bareMinerals Brilliant Future Age Defense and Renew Serum which is available now and costs £42.

QVC Tili Beauty Box

Have you heard of Tili?

Tili is QVC’s very own beauty box and is literally filled to burst with carefully selected, must have products from many of the brands featured on the channel.

Tili, which stands for ‘Try it, Love it’ features a range of new launches and cult classics every month for just £20 with no ongoing subscription required, so you’re not tied in!

I’ve always loved the concept of a beauty box as a way to try products and discover new brands without having to splash out on full size items, but many boxes left me disappointed at the size of their samples, the range of brands and the diversity of the products.

Not so with Tili.

Just take a look at what this not-so-little box has to offer this month in its 4th edition!

Available from May 17th online at QVCUK.COM it is packed with a fantastic range of products and brands, some which I’m familiar with, others that I’m not.

In this edition you’ll find;

Alpha H Liquid Gold Rose 50ml
New just this month is Liquid Gold Rose, the limited edition of its global best seller. Drawing on the classic formulation this edition features newly added richly aromatic botanicals, antioxidants, minerals and clinically proven moisture boosters - including rose, lotus and orchid petal. Combined with Glycolic Acid and Liquid Gold’s world-renowned low pH delivery system, it instantly stimulates the skin’s cellular metabolism, while the uniquely soothing and moisture boosting effects elevate skin resurfacing.

Erno Lazlo Cleansing oil 15ml and Face Bar 17g
A favourite brand of my hero, Marilyn Monroe comes Erno Lazlos’s Cleansing Oil. This rich cleansing oil penetrates pores to dissolve trapped oils, impurities and make up while the cleansing bar creates a conditioning barrier to thoroughly cleanse your skin leaving it feeling soft and beautiful. Hey, if its good enough for Marilyn its good enough for me!

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara 3g
If the name didn’t give it away, this cult mascara is a ‘Roller for lashes’, featuring an eye opening Hook ‘n’ Roll brush which grabs, separates, lifts and curls your lashes. The long lasting formula sets your curvy lashes for an impressive 12 hours, leaving you with stunning lashes. Better still, the formula contains Provitamin B5 and Serin, ingredients known for their lash conditioning benefits. Result. I adore the shape of this brush which really does give your lashes a great curve, while the bristles separate your lashes, ensuring you don’t get any of those horrible clumpy spider lashes.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish 30ml
Radiant skin is just a cleanse away with this multi award winning cleanser. Enriched with cocoa butter to soften, smoothe and moisturise and rosemary, chamomile and eucalyptus to tone, soothe and purify this rich cream deeply cleanses your skin, can remove even waterproof mascara and leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated. It’s no wonder its won so many awards it’s a powerful yet gentle and refreshing cleanser that wont ever leave your skin feeling tight.

Julian Farel Shampoo and Conditioner (both 50ml)
We use anti ageing products on our skin all the time but what about your hair? After all, it ages too! This rich, colour safe conditioning duo features anti ageing technology to deeply condition your hair without weighing it down.

OPI Nail Lacquer 15ml
Part of the FIJI collection of OPI polishes this vibrant, glossy, long lasting lacquer is perfect for the upcoming summer months. It takes seconds to effortlessly sweep onto your nails, is quick drying and beautifully pigmented which means no streaks. 1 of 8 colour varients will appear in your box.

Vita Liberata 10 Minute Tan 20ml
I’m rubbish at fake tanning and while I’ve not tried it myself it’s the brand that I always hear great things about. This rapid performing lotion allows you to shower just 10 mins after application and leaves you with a natural, golden tan within 4-6 hours with no risk of colour transfer. Sounds like this could be my kind of tan!

It Cosmetics CC Cream 4ml
Developed with plastic surgeons this CC+ cream with SPF 50 is a number 1 best selling, award winning cream. This rich but light cream offers full coverage for a flawless finish and with SPF50 you know it’s looking after your skin too.

Ultrasun SPF30 25ml
Developed with the latest skincare research and advances this multi purpose sun cream delivers all day protection while helping to prevent UVA induced premature photo ageing. Help to stop the wrinkles while enjoying the sun. What a fab idea.

I think you’ll agree that this is a really well thought out box.

It contains a brilliant array of products that are perfect for spring and summer and literally covers something from each beauty department; skincare, haircare, makeup, bath and body and nails.

The samples are decent sizes which allow you to have a proper play around with the products and the box is just £20.

It’s a great price for such a fab box and I love that you don’t have to sign up and subscribe.

Bravo QVC, you’ve got a fan in me and I’m already excited to see what will be in the next box!

Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique Serum is their number 1 selling serum for younger looking skin that glows.

Suitable for all skin types, ages and ethnicities this potent and powerful daily serum has been created to promote youthful looking skin by targeting a number of skin issues.

The lightweight and silky serum helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving your skins radiance, clarity and texture.

Sounds pretty damn impressive eh!

 It’s patented formula is enriched with hyaluronic acid and probiotic fragments to work deep within the skin to help target and reduce these signs of ageing.

The serum itself is housed within a chic bottle and features a self loading dropper which gives you the perfect dose of serum for each application.

Designed to be used after cleansing and prior to moisturising, gently massage the serum into your skin then get on with your day!

It is a silky, smooth serum that is absorbed almost instantly leaving your skin feeling soft and comfortable.

It creates a wonderful base for make up and I have to say that after using it twice daily for 2 weeks I’ve noticed quite a difference.

My skin feels noticeable softer to touch and the lines around my eyes, while still there actually appear somewhat softer and less defined.

I’m really impressed and didn’t expect to see such a difference in such a short period of time.

Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique serum is available now and costs £59 for 30ml.
