Product Review: Boots No 7 Products

face-mask-picture

 

I had a mini shopping haul in my local Boots store some days ago, and I decided to step up my skin care routine, and try some new skin care products. I usually never go for Boots No 7 products because I believe they are not made for my skin tone. But there was a 3 for 2 offer going on that day and I needed to try the No 7 Lash & Brow Perfector so badly  (I heard all about it at the Street Style Bus Event), so I went for that and 2 other cool products I needed, which were – No 7 Beautiful Skin Purifying Mask for Normal/Oily Skin and No 7 Beautiful Skin Overnight Radiance Boost for All Skin Types.

No 7 Beautiful Skin Purifying Mask for Normal/Oily Skin

Starting off with this amazing purifying mask, I have used it a few times now and I love it. I wish I could use it every day. It is so far the best face mask I have ever used. It is a new product so no product description on Boots Website but here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. It feels amazing on the skin. Once it is applied on the face, it heats up and feels so warm and nice. I love the warmth. It feels like I am in a Spa.
  2. I like that the application and waiting time is quick. The mask should be massaged for 2 mins, and the waiting time is an extra 2 minutes before rinsing off.
  3. My skin feels AMAZING after. It feels and looks smooth. And it looks brighter as well.
  4. It is affordable at £12.50, and there is usually the 3 for 2 offer to take advantage of.
  5. I like the packaging.

I use this No 7 Beautiful Skin Overnight Radiance Boost for all skin types every night. I massaged it into my skin, using small circles after cleansing. Here is the product description –

  2. I love the light fragrance.
  3. I love the texture. It feels good on my face.

No 7 Lash & Brow Perfector

I have been after a good Lash and Brow Gel for awhile now. I ran out of The Body Shop Brow Gel some months ago, and I have been in search of another since then. So when I saw how brillant this No7 Lash & Brow Perfector was at the beauty sessions at the Street Style Bus Event, I knew I had to get it.

No7 Lash & Brow Perfector is a caring, conditioning gel to enhance and shape your lashes and brows.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. It conditiones my lashes and brows.
  2. My brows stay in place all day.
  3. I love the compact packaging.
  4. It is quite affordable at £8.50.
  5. It has a very light texture. It does not clump the brows or lashes.

CONS

None

 

I really like all 3 products. And I can see myself buying them again.

Beauty Muse – Eva Longoria

I have always admired Eva Longoria, right from her Desperate Housewives days. I mean, who didn’t love Gabrielle Solis? Eva Longoria looks as beautiful on the outside as she looks on the inside, a real Beauty Muse, I love her.

For a woman over 40 to look as good as she looks is beyond belief. She is blessed with some amazing genes, and the weirdest thing is that, she is looking even more beautiful as she grows older. I pray I look half as good as she does when I am 40.

I love everything about Eva Longoria. She is my definition of the ‘Perfect Looking Woman’. Her flawless golden skin, beautiful sparkly eyes, black silky hair and her very petite frame. Her body shape is my definition of ‘Pretty Cute’ and it looks amazing.

I was super curious about Eva’s beauty routine, so I took the liberty of researching her beauty tips and I discovered quite a few. Here are 3 of my favourites:

Her Biggest Beauty Secret

“Moisturising. Because I fly so much, hydration is important. When you have good skin, everything else kind of falls into place. Also, I use blush with shimmer in it. That way, your skin glows and people notice it.”

Her 3 Makeup Musthaves

“Firstly, mascara. Ever since doing the shoot for Million Lashes I have been addicted. I love the brush and the texture of the mascara. It’s not clumpy and is the blackest black. Then all I would need is a bronzer and some fresh water.”

Beauty Gadget Musthave

“Tweezers. I am obsessed with plucking my eyebrows. I always end up doing them on a plane at 30,000ft as the light is so good.”

I am intrigued by this beauty, there is something chilled out about her, and I love the fact that she is so relatable.

What do you think of her as a Beauty Muse? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Happy Tuesday.

 

 

 

Beauty Muse – Katy Perry

The beautiful pop star – Katy Perry is the Beauty Muse of the week and she deserves the slot; she is a true beauty.

This talented singer is all versions of beautiful. I love her sparkly eyes, spotless skin and her charming smile. Her makeup is always flawless and she goes for looks that suit her best. This woman inspires me to do great things when I am applying my makeup.

This current face of Cover Girl dished out some beauty tricks and tips when speaking with Byrdie, here is a quote from the interview:

“One of my little tricks is just doing lots and lots of mascara,” she explains. “I’m [a sucker] for lash extensions these days. It’s really fun to wake up feeling Bambi-ish and fresh. I’ve had extensions for, like, five years, and then I dye my brows when I’m getting my extensions done. Then, I use Covergirl pencil and powder for my brows, lots of mascara, and that’s it. Shading is so great, especially because some of my weight in between stuff shows up on my face. That’s where you first lose weight; it falls off your face. Until then, if you want to enjoy life, just get a little shade out, and contour your weight out of your face. Jake also does this thing where he takes a credit card and puts it behind my lashes when applying mascara to my lashes-it lifts them up. He’s so good at the glowy stuff, too-he adds it in my Cupid’s bow, to open up the lip, and also down your nose. It makes your nose a little smaller; Marilyn Monroe used to do it.”

Beauty Muse Katy Perry

I agree with her beauty tips and tricks. Applying coats of mascara opens the eyes and does wonders to the face. Another beauty essential Katy swears by is Eye Drops! They help her fight jetlags and help her look and feel awake. Great tip. I will be trying that when next I feel like going back to bed.
