Vichy Idéalia Life Serum. That’s a grand name!

I don’t really use serums but I did try this one with the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light Cream. It claims to instantly give a radiant and fresh complexion with a more even tone.

I have to say, my skin did have a glow to it after using it – it freshened my complexion as promised and it also meant I didn’t have to use a double layer of Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light Cream. It has a hint of a herby scent which always makes me feel like a product is good for my skin. I have tried much more expensive serums which really didn’t make any difference at all or even made my skin feel worse.

I’m glad I got to try this serum. If I ever felt the need to give my skin a boost with some serum, I’d probably pick this one.

Well I was certainly spoiled this Mother’s Day!

After managing to accidently recycle my sample of the Givenchy One-minute Glow Powder from my British Beauty Blogger Givenchy beauty box before I got to use it (I was very upset), my baby son treated me to these Givenchy goodies for Mother’s Day:

  • Hydra Sparkling One-minute Glow Powder
  • Hydra Sparkling Velvet Luminescence Moisturizing Cream

With samples of:

  • Hydra Sparkling High Moisturizing Sap-Serum
  • Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow
  • Very Irresistible Eau de Toilette

I am a very happy mummy!

 

Review: Green People Age Defy Line Eraser Lip & Eye

Green People Age Defy Line Eraser Lip & Eye Eraser

Green People Age Defy Line Eraser Lip & Eye

I received a sample of this Green People Age Defy Line Eraser Lip & Eye in my Latest in Beauty Winter Collection Editor’s Picks box. It is a serum which contains 95% organic ingredients. It is an opaque greeny-yellow liquid with a natural spa smell. I tried this on my lips a couple of times but I mainly use it on my eyes.

I have to confess, I don’t have any lines to get rid of so I can’t comment on that aspect. I did use it under my night-time eye cream as added protection and nourishment. I don’t know if I can see any difference but I wasn’t looking for any really.

It does take quite a long time to massage one pump of the serum into both eyes so I just have to enjoy the massage. The whole process does relax me before I go to sleep. It’s not moisturising enough for me to not apply eye cream over the top but as I understand it, serums work best when used with moisturiser.

I liked the fact I was putting something good on to my face. I have had no reactions which could happen with organic products so I would be willing to try other Green People products.
