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.

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.

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?

How to make your make-up stay on all day

Black Beauty Image

 

There’s nothing as upsetting as spending hours getting your makeup just right only for it to fade away after a couple of hours. I find it so annoying.
Makeup helps to enhance your beauty but when your makeup fades or melts away during the day, its aim is defeated.
Here are some things you can do to make your makeup stay on all day:
1.    Exfoliate regularly
Makeup lasts longer when your face is smooth. This is because a smooth skin allows you to apply makeup evenly. The presence of dead skin cells can make your face rough. Exfoliation helps to clear away dead skin from your face, leaving it silky smooth. Exfoliate once or twice a week using a gentle scrub. A good face mask should be used at least once a week (more on face masks in my upcoming product review post).
2.    Cleanse your skin
Oily skin makes it difficult for the makeup to stay on longer. Using a gentle cleanser and a cotton ball, thoroughly cleanse your whole face. Do not neglect your neck. The cleanser will rid your skin of dirt, grime and oil right to the pores of your skin.
3.    Apply moisturizer correctly
After cleansing your skin, applying a moisturizer will keep your skin from staying dry and allow the makeup to be easily applied. When applying moisturizer, make sure you pick an oil-free moisturizer that is light weight. A moisturizer that contains SPF to protect your skin from the sun is a bonus. Apply a thin layer of moisturizer and allow it to sink into your skin.
4.    Apply a primer
A good primer helps to seal in the moisturizer and fill in the pores to give your skin a smooth even surface. A primer prevents your makeup from being absorbed in your skin. This will make your makeup last longer.
5.    Choose quality products
Using low quality products is another reason why your makeup does not last long. Quality products contain substances that will not only take care of your skin but also ensure your makeup lasts longer too. From my experience, the more expensive the beauty product, the longer it stays on. I find MAC lipsticks and powder stay on for ages, Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is the best in the market, English Mineral Makeup Kabuki Brushes are fab for blending, and I love the No 7 Airbrush Away Primer, it creates an amazing foundation.
6.    Layer your makeup
Makeup that is caked up on your face makes the makeup crumble in the creases. The right way to apply your makeup is to apply it one thin layer after another. This will make your makeup stay longer on your skin and creates a more natural look. This rule on layering doesn’t only apply to your skin but to your lips as well. Apply lipstick one thin layer at a time.
7.    Set the makeup with powder
After applying your makeup, set it in with some translucent powder. The powder will make your makeup smooth and get rid of excess oil from your skin. Make sure you give special attention to your under eyes by lightly brushing some powder there. The powder will seal up your makeup.
8.    Finish off with makeup spray
Makeup spray is a special spray that contains substances that will help seal the makeup in place and prevent it from melting away. It also helps to even out your makeup and make it look like natural skin.
