Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand

If your under eye concealer just isn’t cutting it any more then I’ve found a fabulous dual purpose product to help conceal the appearance of dark circles while smoothing over wrinkles and brightening your eye area.

This multi-purpose tube of radiance features a combination of skincare and cosmetics to ensure that your delicate eye area is pampered and prepped to perfection before you conceal.

Available in 5 different shades, one end of the wand contains a hydrating eye cream featuring a blend of cyclodextrins, rice proteins, hyaluronic acid and bio extract of Salicornia which work to smooth, firm and de-puff this delicate area.

The other end contains a light reflecting concealer with micro-particles to help conceal discolouration, brighten dark shadows and diffuse the appearance of under-eye hollows.

I love this two pronged attack, what an inspired idea!

The under eye cream is deliciously rich and creamy yet exceptionally lightweight in texture.

Dispensed through the silky soft fibres of the brush, it glides across your skin like silk, comforting, plumping and hydrating as it goes to refresh and revive tired eyes.
Any hint of dryness which can later result in cracked makeup is banished and skin is left feeling soft and nourished without being greasy or oily.

Once fully absorbed, its time for the concealer to get to work.

 Like the cream it is a lightweight, silky fluid which is surprisingly pigmented given its fluidity.

  Applied directly to your under-eye dark circles with the soft brush you can then gently tap the product onto your skin, blending as you go.

The concealer features tiny mother of pearl particles to help brighten your complexion while silky elastomers work to cover the surface of your eye bags, smoothing over wrinkles as opposed to sitting in them unflatteringly.

The colour correcting properties help to neutralise blue, pink and brown undertones while the presence of polypeptides actually work to minimise the appearance of dark circles going forward.

The expert fusion of luxurious skincare and superior cosmetics results in an eye area which radiates with health.

The appearance of tired eyes has diminished and fine lines and wrinkles appear softer.

I’ve tried many under eye concealers and this is definitely one of the best. I love knowing that as well as concealing my imperfections, its also helping to prevent any further deterioration. 

Just brilliant.

The Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand is available now and costs £29.

Mad Beauty Disney Marie Bows & Whiskers Collection

Calling all Disney fans!

If you eat, breathe, live Disney, then you need to become acquainted with Mad Beauty.

 Mad Beauty are all about making cosmetics fun and they have an extensive treasure trove of fabulous, Disney branded beauty goodies.

I’ve already introduced you to their super cute Dumbo range and today I’m bringing you some items from their sweeter than sweet Disney Marie Bows and Whiskers collection.

This collection celebrates Marie, the adorably cute fluffy white kitten from the classic Disney film, The Aristocats.

I’m presenting you with a trio of goodies from the range including a Body Cream (£5.99), Lip BalmDuo (£7.99) and Bath Milk (£5.99).

Beautifully presented in the most enchanting and cheerful packaging, even the most everyday, ordinary products take on a new lease of life.

Nestled within a soft grey and powder pink tub adorned with a sweet illustration of Marie you’ll find a sumptuous and rich body cream.

I love the way in which the tub has been created to resemble a pot of cream, because obviously a pampered kitten like Marie would simply adore this!
Enriched with nourishing shea butter, this decadent cream features a wonderful soft peony and cherry blossom scent.

Elegant and feminine, the cream effortlessly nourishes your skin and leaves behind its fine, delicate fragrance.

Continuing along the kitten theme, the Bath Soak is housed within a milk bottle shaped vessel.

The fluid within is of course, creamy in colour like milk because naturally, cats love milk but also milk has been used in bathing rituals since the time of the Ancient Egyptians!

Fragranced in the same soft floral scent as the body cream, pour under warm running water and indulge in a relaxing, frothy bubble bath.

The bottle will look fabulous on your bathroom shelf too!
Last but by no means least is my favourite item from the collection, the Lip Balm Duo.

Forget a bog standard tube, these balms have been transformed into two little balls of wool.

Created in the same pleasing pale grey and pink hues as the rest of the collection, these little globes of joy house a balm to soften and comfort lips while imparting an impressive hit of super shine.

Exquisitely presented with attention to detail, you cannot help but fall in love with such playful and fun items.

How said beauty had to be boring eh!

L'Occitane Cocon de Serenite Relaxing Pillow Mist

I love going to bed. Along with my evening skincare regime, it’s my favourite time of the day!

However, as a busy mum of two I can struggle when it comes to drifting off to sleep or indeed, staying asleep.

Restless nights result in tired, long drawn own days and it really affects my daily life.

Modern life can be stressful and sometimes it’s not just important but necessary to take a little time to relax and unwind.

Luckily L’Occitane’s new Art De Vivre Home collection have just the selection of products that can help you to relax and recharge.

Step into Provence and immerse yourself with enveloping scents of indulgence and well being with their home collection, featuring products infused with essential oils to soothe your body and mind.

My favourite item for this new range is their Cocon de Serenite Relaxing Pillow Mist (£19.50).

The Cocon de Serenite range is a deeply relaxing collection which promises a moment of indulgent and peaceful serenity.

Formulated with a blend of essential oils known for their relaxing properties, the range comprises of a scented candle, soap, perfume refill (for use with a diffuser) and of course, the pillow spay.

Featuring 100% natural scent, the spray is designed to be used in your bedroom 15 minutes prior to going to bed.

The luxurious spray contains a blend of PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) Lavender Essential Oil, known for its soothing and purifying properties, Sweet Orange Essential Oil with its soothing and relaxing properties and Geranium Flowers Essential Oil which is known for its purifying and astringent properties.

Combined with sweet orange, bergamot and mandarin it offers a moment of pure relaxation, quieting your mind and allowing you to breathe in the restorative and calming qualities of the scent.

Top notes of wholesome, soothing Petitgrain, Lavander and Geranium mix with heart notes of sparkling Orange, Orange Blossom and Mandarin before base notes of comforting Rose, Basil and Mint Leaves leave a decadent, botanical and beautiful scent.

Unlike many other pillow sprays which can be exceptionally heavy on the lavender notes, the Cocon de Serenity Pillow Spray offers a much more well-rounded, multi-faceted aroma which is ideal for those who aren’t keen on lavender.

I adore this restorative, luxurious, soothing spray and since using it I’ve noticed that I’ve been able to fall asleep much faster than without it.

Discover the new L’Occitane home collection in store or online now where you’ll also find the new Cocon de Serenity Pillow Spray which costs £19.50.
