Product Review: SBC Collagen 3-in-1

SBC

I am still in the pursuit of the perfect skin care routine, which means I try loads of skin and beauty products every month. So when I had the opportunity to review the Simply Beautiful Collection/SBC Collagen 3-in-1 and face shammy (cleansing cloth), and I was eager to try it out.

Here is what SBC has to say about this product:

A versatile and effective triple action cleanser that removes all traces of make-up, dirt, oil and impurities, gently lifts away eye make-up and mildly exfoliates for a softer, smoother and brighter complexion. Especially recommended for mature, dull and dry skin types.

*This Cleanser comes with a Pink Skin Shammy – Face Cloth

 *Contains Soluble Collagen (Oceagen®) which is a protein derived from Fish – Information for those that are Vegetarian or Vegan

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. I love the packaging, and the pump makes it easy to use, and leaves no messes.
  2. I love the fragrance and the creamy texture of the product.
  3. I love the fact that is a multi-tasking/versatile product. No need to buy a cleanser, a make-up remover and an exfoliator separately, when you can just have this one product that does all.
  4. It is quite affordable at £25 for the 250ml, but it can be found cheaper on QVC for £21.54 and Amazon for £14.99.
  5. I like the soft feeling of the shammy cloth on my skin.

CONS

  1. I had full on makeup on, and it didn’t get it all off. I used quite a few pumps and gave up.
  2. I have a combination skin, and this product left my skin feeling very oily. So if you have an oily or combination skin, I won’t recommend it.

Overall, I find the product OK and I would recommend it for mature, dry and dull skin types.

My Dream Kitchen

banner--2

I spend quite a lot of time in my kitchen, so you can imagine I would want this space to look ace, if money was no object. I would go all out, break down walls, have a bigger kitchen furnished with the latest appliances to cook yummy meals and entertain guests. I think the kitchen is the busiest and the most important room in a house, and in order to make a house a home, the kitchen has to be all you want it to be as far as your pocket can allow. If you read my previous home improvement posts (if you missed them, click here and here), you will know all about how we are still trying to get some work done scheduled to be completed next summer. Well, while that is a work-in-progress, I am here, day dreaming about the kitchen above, this beauty is my ideal kitchen,if only money was no object…

My Dream Kitchen

I also love this one above as well. I love the abundance of space, the granite work tops, the lightning, the appliances and the American look they both have, and I am not alone. A recent study commissioned by Mayfair Granite has shown that the most desirable features UK residents would like to see in their kitchens if money was no object. The research conducted polled 1,000 UK home owners and was split into five sections; worktops, flooring, appliances, lighting and style of kitchen, with participants asked to choose their favourite feature from each. Well here are the results:

Worktops

Granite surfaces were voted the top worktop by participants with 39% of the vote, while quartz was also popular with 32%. However, restaurant and catering venue favourite stainless steel didn’t make the grade with only 5% of the vote.

Flooring

The majority of participants (32%) chose traditional tile flooring for their dream kitchen, while Vinyl (25%) and Laminate (22%) were also popular. Hardwood flooring was less popular, with sealed cork getting the thumbs down with just 8% of the vote.

Appliances

The appliance that topped the dream kitchen list was the range oven with 29%; smart fridge freezers proved popular too with 22%, as did a Kitchen Aid and boiling water tap both with 18%. Participants also seem to like their coffee, with 13% of them choosing to have a coffee machine in their dream kitchen.

Lighting

Recessed lighting has been popular for many years due to its versatility and has proved again that it’s the top choice with 33% of the vote. Coming in second was pendant lights (26%) which have seen a resurgence in the last few years, but fluorescent lights seem to be stuck with the stigma of schools and office buildings, coming bottom with just 8% of the vote.

Style of kitchen

A smooth and sleek kitchen design was what the majority of participants wanted for their dream kitchen, with traditional and country styles closely following in second and third. The American trend of shaker kitchens doesn’t seem to have crossed the pond though, with just 15% of the vote.

Mayfair Granite Dream Kitchen

I am not surprised at the results at all, I would have voted for them myself. Granite surfaces are my preferred worktops, I like a traditional tile flooring, I would love to have a coffee machine in my kitchen (that is one kitchen appliance I am lacking), recessed lighting are my preferred choice and I love the modern, sleek kitchen design.
