Environ Original: Firming Eye Gel

Uncategorized

 

Hey babes! Week 3 of my skincare journey with the Environ Original Range has come to an end and as promised, this weeks post is dedicated to the Environ Firming Eye Gel.

I’m not sure about you, but I had never seen eye gel as a necessity. I’ve tried out one or two eye gels previously but after a week or two, the product ends up just sitting on my desk alongside all other products I hardly use. I suffer from very dark under eye circles, which means my make-up routine is a little longer than usual as my eye routine consists of colour correcting, concealing and baking in order to cover up those dark circles. Even with  all the make up  around my eye area, it usually ends up either creasing or fading, exposing the dark circles.

Since using the firming eye gel (morning and evening), the application of my usual under eye make up appears to be much better. The make up lasts longer and my raccoon looking eyes don’t start peeping out half way through the day.  It is amazing what some under eye gel can do! My under eye area is well nourished and hydrated, and although the dark circles are here to stay the ‘bags’ that appear every now and then are noticeably less. Yeah!

The Environ Original Firming Eye Gel is enriched with peptides which gives the skin around the eyes some much needed attention and hydrates the skin well. The Firming Eye Gel also contains vitamins A, C and E, as well as antioxidants, including rosemary leaf extract and Sesaflash (a moisturizing and tightening agent derived from plants), which together assist in preventing and reducing visible signs of ageing. The skin around the eye are is delicate, which means this are needs to be well hydrated and looked after in  order to soften the appearance of fine lines.

Another great thing about this product is a little goes a long way…literally! Yay for us!

Environ Original: Debut Moisturizer

Uncategorized

 

 

 

The second week of the Environ Original Range review period has come to an end, and to end off week two rightfully, as promised, this post is dedicated to the Debut Moisturiser which falls under this range.

Okay, first things first, as soon as I squeezed out some of the moisturiser onto my fingertip I immediately noticed the unique scent. There is no way to describe it, but I love it, I’m guessing its the combination of vitamins and antioxidants. This moisturiser is so light but hydrating, after applying it to my skin, my face immediately feels more nourished and radiant. What I love the most is that after applying the Debut Moisturiser I do my usual make up routine and it leaves my make up looking flawless. For all the make up addicts, you’ll know that skin prep is important when doing make up and having a good moisturiser and well nourished skin makes such a great difference.

The Debut Moisturiser contains a low concentration of vitamin A, which as you should know by know (if you read the previous post) is a essential skin nutrient. It also contains vitamins C, E and antioxidants which assist your skin in combating the harmful effects of free radicals.

I’m a sunshine baby, so naturally I love spending time in the sun, which has damaged skin slightly leaving it looking more dull than usual.The Environ Debut Moisturiser improves the appearance of uneven skin tone and sun damage which in turn leaves the skin looking healthier and beautiful. Although it’s only been two weeks, I’m ready to ditch my old moisturisers for the Environ Debut Moisturiser, and my skin certainly agrees!

Feel free to ask me any questions, I’ll gladly answer them for you.

It looks like Charles is just as keen as we are about this!

Hey Babygirls! We have some really exciting news to share! Are you ready for it?

 

One of our very own writers has joined  forces Beauty Bulletin and Environ Skin  Care to review the Environ Original Range exclusively for two months. Yes, you read right. That means you get first hand feedback on the products and an honest review!

 

The Environ Original Range products contain a combination of vitamins A, C, E and antioxidants, all of which your skin needs to maintain a healthy and radiant glow. Vitamin A is the key ingredient in all their products and must be replaced daily for the skin to appear healthier and more resilient. Numerous studies(UK, Belgium, Switzerland and USA) have also shown that vitamin A is essential not just for skin health, but for the prevention of skin cancer and promotion of photo protection too. If you don’t already know, vitamin A helps with the following:

  • It promotes your skins natural moisturizing factors: The promotion of a healthy barrier function for your skin which leaves your skin looking both hydrated and refreshed.
  • It promotes collagen and elastin: Both  healthy collagen and elastin synthesis is encouraged for a firmer looking skin.
  • It promotes a healthy dermis and epidermis: Vitamin A helps promote healthier looking skin as it is essential for all layers of the skin.
  • It helps improve problematic skin conditions: Vitamin A normalizes the sebaceous gland activity, which leaves the skin more balanced.
  • It helps improve pigmentation: Vitamin A helps to stabilize pigmentation distribution which leaves the skin more toned in appearance.
  • It helps support skin immunity: The ability to support your skins immune function is done by potentiating the Langerhans cells which assists in maintaining healthier  looking skin.
  • It is known as the skin normalizing vitamin: This forms the basis of normal, healthy and well functioning skin.

Environ has created the Vitamin Step-up System to help your skin become gradually more comfortable with increased levels of vitamin A and other ingredients. This means you start off with low dosages of vitamin A (Level 1) before progressing to the next level.

Okay, so here is the fun part. For two months one our writers will be using the Environ Original Range and documenting it both daily and week by week. Each week a new post will go live to introduce you to each product being used. To help make sure you stay updated, we have included a break day per week of each post:

  • Week 1: Environ Original Range Introduction
  • Week 2: Product: Environ Level 1 Moisturizer
  • Week 3: Product: Environ Firming Eye Gel
  • Week 4: Surprise post 😉
  • Week 5: Product: Environ Pre-Cleanser and Foaming Gel Cleanser
  • Week 6: Product: Environ Balancing Masque
  • Week 7: Product: Environ Revitalising Toner
  • Week 8: Final Environ Original Range Review

We surely hope you’ll be following us on this two month Environ Skin Care journey to put to test if  skin can be #RebornBeautiful.

Okay, I’ll be the first to admit I’m a regular coffee drinker and smoke rollies ( I know, it’s a terrible habit), which have left my teeth in not so ‘pearly white’. I’ve been wanting to invest in one of those whitening kits for a while but it’s just so expensive to order online. I’m pretty sure there are a few of you reading this that have had the same struggle, or am I the only one? Regardless, having great pearly white teeth makes those divine lipstick shades you wear just look so much more better!

I recently stumbled across this toothpaste by Nu Skin called AP 24, a whitening fluoride toothpaste which has no peroxides and is safe for daily use on both adults and children. This toothpaste is designed to brighten teeth and remove stains, exactly what  I wanted, and it is super affordable! I decided to give it a try and babygirl, this is something you need to invest it! After a few days of using it (morning and evening) I already saw a noticeable difference and I am loving it! This product is one that needs to be sitting in your bathroom, replacing your usual choice of toothpaste. It has a cool minty flavour to it and lasts much longer than your regular supermarket toothpaste.

We think this is a great alternative to any of those expensive teeth whitening kits or trips to the dentist, plus it contains no harmful or harsh ingredients. We say this one is the real MVP.

If you’re keen to try it out, holla by dropping us an email and we will forward you all the deets! Smile babygirl, we got you 😉

Sup Babygirl?

Hey Babygirl! Sup?

Let’s introduce ourselves first okay?

We’re two sisters, both who have an interest in beauty, make-up, hair and all the other bits. We’ve noticed the recent increase in blogs specifically dedicated to either beauty or fashion and decided to start one of our own. The difference? We’re not pro make up artists, fashion stylists or beauty experts. We’re just two regular girls who want to share the secrets and tips we’ve learnt.

Both of us are university students and although we love checking out the latest products and trends, our budgets don’t always agree. Don’t worry though, we got you babygirl! We like to try and test different products and trends and shop around for alternatives. You can often find us watching Youtube tutorials or researching home made products. We appreciate the real babygirls, you know, the ones who eat what they like, speak their mind and keep it real. You do you boo, we want to spread some of this love!
