May | Product Empties

Another month has gone by and another post with what I've managed to use up is upon us. I don't seem to have as many products this month as I did in April's Product Empties post though, I need to up my game a bit.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish;

My holy grail of cleansers and the one I go back to buy time and time again, I finished my most recent bottle this month and I'm actually trying out some other cleansers at the moment so while I will be re-purchasing it won't be for a short time at least.

Paul Mitchell Re Works

Today I'm talking about my hair, my hair which used to be very long and got progressively shorter since I moved to Wales, a quick timeline of my hair includes;

Pre 2010 also pre Wales, I had long, un-dyed hair natural hair I did nothing to. (1)

2011, I cut it from the long length of picture (1) to the bob in picture (2), and dyed it red. This was when I was blogging before and how I came up with the name of M(r)s Red's Beauty Blog.

2014, got bored of short, red hair due to the constant need to redo my roots, dyed it blonde (near enough my natural shade) and grew it out, also the year I got married, hence the up do. (3)

2015, quickly got bored of having long hair again and chopped it off, also went through a pink phase, which also didn't last due to upkeep. (4)

Today in 2016 my hair is blonde, because I'm too lazy to deal with the upkeep on funky colours, and short, because it's so damn easy to look after. (5)

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara

I'm very picky when it comes to mascara having tried many different ones out over the years, the biggest failing many have for me is that they end up under my eyes giving me the ever fetching raccoon look rather than remaining on my lashes where they belong. 

I've tried high end and high street mascaras and have had similar issues with both varieties, although in my opinion the high end mascaras are even 'softer' than high street mascaras and smudge easier.

I also only like brown mascara for the simple fact that black mascara is too harsh for me being very pale with fair hair naturally, and I dislike waterproof mascara because I end up losing eyelashes removing it.

So after that long list of thing I dislike, what do I like?

Miller Harris Perfume

Citron Citron

A short while ago I along with several others were lucky enough to win some Miller Harris perfume via twitter, I couldn't begin to tell you how excited that made me as Miller Harris is quite a luxury perfume brand and not something I'd usually be able to justify spending on.

Makeup Revolution Blushing Hearts - Part 1

Makeup Revolution Blushing Hearts

I absolutely adore these makeup revolution blushing heart blushes, so much so I may have gone slightly overboard with them, but at £4.99 each it's so, so hard to not buy them all. I did manage to limit myself to four as you can see below.

Today's post will be all about Iced Hearts and Peachy Keen Heart (bottom two)

Deciem Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age

Deciem Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Advanced Serum

The Claims

For multi-depth rehydration and visible reduction in lines and irregularities

A highly active concentrate of advanced hyaluronic complexes, next-generation peptides and biotechnological technologies to target rehydration on and below skin surface, while visibly improving lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and textural damage.

The Ingredients 

Aqua, Glycerin, Ethoxydiglycol, Hydrolyzed Yeast Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Pentylene Glycol, Tamarindus Indica Seed Gum, Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Lactobacillus/Eriodictyon Californicum Ferment Extract, Saccharide Isomerate, Copper Lysinate/Prolinate, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38, Myristoyl Nonapeptide-3, Ahnfeltia Concinna Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Methylglucoside Phosphate, Cetyl Hydroxyethylcellulose, Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin, Polyglucuronic Acid, Hexylene Glycol, Salicylic Acid, Lecithin, Phospholipids, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Citrate, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate.

The Immediate Concerns

There's a lot of scientific type talk with this product so I've had a bit of a hard time understanding what the ingredients are let alone what they do. I also notice a few of my least favourite ingredients in the list but thankfully at the end of the ingredients list rather than higher up, although I wish they weren't there to start with. Especially phenoxyethanol which is used as a preservative yet they have luconostoc/radish root ferment filtrate in there which negates the need for the phenoxyethanol. 

How Did It Fair?

It contains a whole heap of ingredients designed to help fight lines and wrinkles, included but not limited to several forms of hyaluronic acid of different molecular weights (this is where my eyes started to cross but I know hyaluronic acid is the ingredient of the year so more hyaluronic acid can only be a good thing.) 

It also contains something called Matrixyl Synthe 6 which is made of palmitoyl tripeptide-38, used widely in skincare to help boost collagen and support existing collagen, and copper lysinate/prolinate which aids the penetration, enhance stability and aids collagen support/production.

This is a very gel like liquid serum which comes in a glass bottle with a dropper to apply it with, which I kinda like because it makes me feel a bit mad scientist when I'm applying it. I've noticed that it sinks in super fast and leaves no tackiness or stickiness behind, you'd think you hadn't applied a thing to be honest but it does really plump the skin out.

My Conclusion

I think this is a really good serum that makes my skin plump out, although I don't have sagging skin at my age, I do have the start of fine lines and I have noticed my frowny lines look softer after consistent use of the serum. I love the way it absorbs into the skin so quickly without any residue.

I was very lucky when I bought mine, as it was on sale for £3.00 (I'm not joking, I just wish I'd picked up more) as it is usually £30.00 from Boots.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Golden Sugar

Last month I posted about the Sugar and Spice blush palette from Makeup Revolution which I picked up in my local Superdrug after being unable to find the palette I actually wanted, which was Golden Sugar. It still hadn't come into stock a month later so I bit the bullet and risked broken blushes by ordering it in, it arrived this week and thankfully was in one piece so today I present to you.

Dr Organic Royal Jelly Eye Serum

I picked up Dr Organic Royal Jelly Eye Serum in my first build a box from Latest in Beauty back in March, it was the full sized version and as such has lasted quite a while. In fact I'd say I've at least another two or three months of use left in it so far.

MOA (Magic Organic Apothecary) The Green Balm

Magic Organic Apothecary - The Green Balm

Before I ordered a 'make your own' box from Latest in Beauty I had never heard of MOA or Magic Organic Apothecary, or even their best seller, the green balm so of course I did a little reading, and here is what I found;

Latest in Beauty Box

I've posted about Latest in Beauty before when I detailed what I ordered in my 'make your own box' back in March, since then obviously I've used up all of what I'd ordered so I thought it time to make up another box, last time I chose the six item box, this time I've gone for the nine item box and pretty much like in my last box I've opted for skin care products to try out rather than makeup.

So here's what I ordered this time;
