Product Pick of the Month: Bobbi Brown VitaminE Enriched Face Base

With all the gunk I’ve been trying out on my face recently, their are certain products that shine more than others.

For this reason I’ve decided that I will do a review of one product a month, which shine’s from them all, and I have to start with this one;

It’s the Bobbi Brown VitaminE enriched moisturiser. I got this as a sample size in the Harper’s Bazaar Beauty Box, and I’ve been using it for a week plus, and can I say I’m obsessed, so much that I’ve actually ordered it in full size.

It’s thick and it really goes so far, I received a small pot in the box, but even after 7 days I’ve still got some left.

My skin since lockdown has been dry and honestly going through so many changes just like our lives. And whilst it’s been changing I’ve been trying new and different things on my face, but this one product has definately outstood all the rest.

I’m so impressed with it. Most moisturiser’s leave a slightly wet feel once used, but this sinks straight into the skin and still gives a hydrated feel. And honestly you can put makeup on literally straight away and it sits so perfectly.

I believe all woman are pretty without makeup-but with the right makeup can be pretty powerful.-

Bobbi Brown

Let’s look at the Science:

It has Carrot Extract and Vitamin A which Minimizes the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Also contains Vitamins C and E which protects against environmental damage.
The Grapefruit and Geranium Fragrance- it so beautiful and really lifts up your mood. ( I love all things Geranium)
And Shea Butter which hydrates and softens the skin.

It’s thick and smooth but it’s not greasy… Honestly no lie, It’s luxurious and the skin feels evened out. Its glorious and rich for a moisturiser. It’s definately on the higher side of the price range, but considering how much use I got from the sample, it’s totally worth it. I feel like once I have it on, it lasts all day, while with other moisturisers after a couple of hours, I feel I need a top up, especially in the heat we have at the moment- which I feel the skin is definately not use to.

Bobbi brown have definately worked out what and how a moisturiser should be. They got it in one. I would recommend this product to all of you.

You can buy it here.

{Collab}…. I tried out Shafs Beauty New ‘Pill’ Face Mask…

Hi All, hope you all are keeping safe and staying indoors.

I think I’ve learnt alot about myself whilst in Lockdown, firstly that I ‘can’ cook more than just chicken fillets…. Dressing in pyjamas all day can be a fashion trend… Cleaning the bathrooms is the worse job in the whole world… their is loads you can do in the house- if you stay in it long enough….barbers and beauticians are talented people for real…not all superheroes wear capes #love NHS….. and…. I’ve become a little obsessed over skincare…..

I have always been a pamper type lady, I love my spas, I love wining, dining, I love my massages, scents… All the good things in life… But I have always had someone else do the hard work whilst I just enjoyed it…

Now I’ve had to learn to wax parts of the body I never thought I would have to….I’ve learnt to deal with aches and pain, and I’ve had to learn how to look after my own skin…. And initially I was anxious- I mean what do you do? How do you do it? …. But honestly along the way I’ve picked up a love for self care and skin care, and I love pampering myself and trying out new and different things….

So when Shafs introduced the new “pill” mask to me….. Well let’s give it a go!!

Staying indoors has really done weird things to my skin, I came out with dry patches, red patches, dull skin and all sorts, and I think I realised it more because I’m not wearing make up much, and God I look awful without it!

But one thing quarantine has taught me, if you look after your skin well, you really don’t need so much make up at all. I haven’t touched my dior foundation in over 6 weeks, and I feel illuminated without it.

I spoke about the products I use from Shafs Beauty earlier- if you missed it click here…. And now let’s take a look at this new face mask…

When Shafs gave me this and said it’s a mask, I really didn’t know what to think, I looked at her blank, wondering if the quarantine was driving her insane, but she explained that I had to put it into the rose toner and watch it turn into a mask…. I was still dubious….

It’s a size of a large pill, how could that possibly turn into a mask…. But it did… Here’s a video on it… It’s really impressive…

Did you see it? Just how cool is that!!! Obsessed.

The Rose toner by Shafs is one product I haven’t spoken about before. Rose itself is a really good product to get rid of grime and oils in the skin, and the rose helps in toning the skin… Can I say that it smells divine. The toner can be used as it is, or with the face mask. I loved using it as a mask. It felt cool on the face, yet I could feel a slight tingling near my nose and upper lip area (where the black heads usually sit). This definately will be sitting in my weekly routine.

After I removed the mask- I used the Shafs Geranium moisturiser.

I’ve never felt so clean and…. Urm…. Purified. It really felt like my skin was smooth and silky, and fresh.

My new look out of quarantine will definately be more of a natural look.

Truly another great product by Shafs! I can’t fault it.
