It’s April Favourites time! Yep April is over, yep it’s nearly half way through 2016, no I am not panicking, why do you ask πŸ™‚

April Favourites 2016

I started up doing monthly favourites again last month ( here ‘s Last months in case you missed them). And so I am back again a month later with my April Favourites for 2016 πŸ™‚

I did it in rambling video form again, let me know if it’s something you enjoy,or would you prefer it in a blog post format. I will list all the products always here on my website too though.

  • The first product is the Organic Surge Extra Care Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. I found it online from Inish Pharmacy here. It costs €16.95.
  • YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils Waterproof, there’s a full blogpost about this here and you can buy it online from Boots here
  • Essence Prettifying Lip Oil
  • Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Addiction, €5.49 from Boots here
  • theBalm MaryLou-Manizer. I have a full review here. You can buy it online from Cloud10beauty here It costs €21.50
  • Mac Book Air. I bought mine from Power City but I can’t find a link online. Here’s a link to it through Harvey Norman
  • And last but not least Lemonade from Beyonce (which I am currently listening to yet again as I write this πŸ™‚ ) I signed up to Tidal to watch it. You can sign up for a month’s free trial. If you do just be sure to turn off the subscription roll over or you’ll be charged for the next month, unless you want to keep using it of course πŸ™‚

And that’s it, these are some of my April Favourites. Be sure to let me know some of the things you’ve been loving for the month of April. Can you believe it’s no May? Madness altogether.

 

As always thanks for reading (and watching) I really appreciate it.

Image Ormedic Eye Balancing Lift Gel

I am reviewing Image Skincare’s Ormedic Balancing Eye Life Gel. I love Image Skincare. It is definitely not cheap but they do some lovely products. I love their Iluma range, especially the Intense Brightening Serum.

I have the Balancing Eye Cream a while now and have been using it everyday.

Image say that this is a balancing, hydrating and lifting eye gel with organic ingredients and medical effectiveness. Multi-peptide formula reverses the signs of ageing. This eye gel is marketed towards all skin types. I am turning 30 very soon (the panic is starting to kick in, believe me) and so eye cream has become a staple in my skincare. As I am not a morning person I have been enjoying using Benefit’s Puff Off most mornings which I reviewed here not too long ago. So, I have been using the Eye Lift Gel in the evenings, it is recommended to use for both occasions though.

I love the packaging of this eye gel, the product comes out of a pump, and for me, one pump per eye is enough.

Although it is a gel, it has a creamy consistency so does feel hydrating on the skin which some gels don’t always do. I can get dry under my eyes so I am very glad of this. It has a pleasant smell and rubs into the skin really easily, leaving behind pretty much no residue. Some eye creams can leave behind a tacky sensation, which really isn’t very pleasant. The Ormedic Balancing Eye Lift Gel doesn’t though, it sinks in really well. Although I am heading into my 3rd decade on this planet…yuck. I have oily skin, I get spots galore, but wrinkles (so far) have been kind to me. I do notice after using the Balancing Eye Lift Gel that the area around my orbital bone feels soft and nourished.

I can’t really say it reverses the signs of ageing, I don’t think any product really can, but it is a lovely eye cream and is lovely to use for more preventative measures. We can all get behind that mentality πŸ™‚
