Perfume Review – Agent Provacateur

*Affiliate link.

As a perfume lover, I am forever adding to my fragrance collection. The latest addition to my perfume collection is this Agent Provacateur Eau de Parfum. I have used this fragrance many times in the past and it is definitely one of my favourite scents. I gave away a similar fragile by Agent Provacateur some years ago. This lovely feminine scent was launched in 2000 and has been a famous fragrance since then.

I am always drawn to Agent Provocateur perfumes because I think they all smell divine, and this is no exception. This is one perfume I know I will be wearing a lot of this autumn/winter season. It smells so good.

Here are my thoughts on this Agent Provacateur Eau de Parfum –

PROS
  1. It has a lovely long-lasting fragrance. I love that the fragrance stays on all day.
  2. The pink bottle is such a beauty. It looks so pretty on my dressing table.
  3. I love the fact that this fragrance has been around for about 19 years and still works like it is brand. If you are after a timeless scent, Agent Provacateur Eau de Parfum is what you need.

 

CONS

None. I can’t fault this fragrance in anyway. The only thing I would say at all is to wear it moderately. Don’t put too much on so it doesn’t come off as too strong. It is a powerful fragrance, great for all weather, so apply liberally. You can shop this lovely fragrance below.

A SkinBase Microdermabrasion Treatment

You all know how crazy I am when it comes to beauty and skincare products. Well I am also very into skincare treatments. I neglected my skin for many years, and I am actually playing catch up now. My skin is great but I would love to clear a few pigmentation issues. I had the golden opportunity to have a SkinBase Microdermabrasion Treatment a week ago, and my facial skin is still thanking me for it today. My skin has never looked so good.

 

What is Microdermabrasion

For those who have never heard of the Microdermabrasion Treatment, it is a non-invasive procedure that uses exfoliating tiny crystals or a diamond tip to help remove the layer of dead skin cells. When you remove the top layer of skin, the body interprets it as an injury. The body then quickly replaces the lost skin cells with new healthy ones.

My Microdermabrasion Treatment

My treatment was at Professional Eyes Studio in Northwich on a Saturday. As soon as I walked into the studio, I felt relaxed and ready for some pampering. The therapist examined my entire face. And then my face was cleansed of all makeup using a cleanser and the treatment started. I found the treatment completely painless and I was comfortable all through the treatment. A wand delivering a fine jet of abrasive crystals was used all over the skin. If I was to describe the sensation of the machine, it felt like an intense scrubbing on the face. Like a buff and polish of the skin.

Once the treatment was done, a simple moisturiser without any essential oils, AHA’s, glycolics or retinol was applied to replenish lost moisture and to prevent the skin becoming dry and peeling. The moisturiser used after this treatment must contain SPF to protect the skin from excessive sun exposure

The entire Microdermabrasion treatment was about 30 minutes. It ended with a hand massage which felt so good. As an online entrepreneur, I am forever online typing one thing or the other on a gadget, so having a hand massage was exactly what my tired fingers needed.

Microdermabrasion Aftercare Advice
  1. Heavy makeup should not be used for the first 12 hours after the treatment.
  2. No swimming, facial waxing or fake tan application for the first 24 hours.
  3. Saunas, sun beds, sun exposure, botox, collagen injections or dermal fillers should not be used for the first 48 hours.
  4. Anti-ageing creams, AHAs, Glycolics, retinol or exfoliating products should not be used for the first 72 hours.

Who needs Microdermabrasion

I would recommend this treatment to anyone dealing with pigmentation, acne scarring, wrinkles and fine lines. SkinBase™ is the leading Microdermabrasion treatment.  There are over 2,000 accredited salons and spas in the UK & Ireland, so there should be a salon near you. The therapist at the salon would examine your skin during the first consultation to determine the course of treatment you need. Treatments plans can vary from single ‘beauty boost’ treatments to courses of 6 to 20 treatments every 7 to 10 days.

I had a single beauty boost treatment as my skin didn’t need a course of treatments. But I will be having a treatment every couple of months as I loved the glow the treatment has given my skin. It feels brand new. My skin has never looked this good and I am loving it so much. I didn’t have any reactions after the treatment except a bit of dryness which went away after 24 hours. I used lots of Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion for the first 48 hours to replenish moisturise. It helped a lot. And I did splash my face with cold water once after the treatment when my face felt dead dry. With lots of mosituriser afterwards.

 

You can check out the short video below to see how my skin glowed after the treatment. The picture above does not do it justice.

Fashion and Style Police Reviews Noble Isle & Avon

There are some brands worth raving about, which is why I like to review products. So I can shout from the rooftops about them. Noble Isle is a brand worth raving about. I have used a few of their amazing products, and I am completely sold. All their products I have tried smell so good. Honestly, this brand has the best smelling skincare products out there. I will be sharing my thoughts on some of their shower gels in this product review post.

These shower gels are from the men’s collection. I have always loved male fragrances for a weird reason. The scents usually appeal to me. Which is why I am using these.

Avon is another brand I have recently discovered this year. Prior to try the brand, I have heard a lot of good things about their products. So I was eager to try some out for myself. I am currently using a few of their skincare products, one of them being this body lotion.
