Eloquence Skincare Review

Step 1 Purifying Facial Cleanser*

This is a refreshing cleanser thats infused with Sacha Inchi Oil, Cucumber and Coconut Extracts. So its gentle and extremely hydrating. I massage a small 5p sized amount on to dry skin then I dampen my fingers and massage for a further minute just to make sure I’m breaking down all my makeup & grime from the day, then I use a hot cloth. It removes my makeup with ease and it leaves my skin feeling lovely and smooth, soft and most importantly (for me) not tight or stripped of moisture.

Step 2 Firm and Tone Serum*

The Firm & Tone Serum with Glycerin and Coconut oil will illuminate the skin and give it a flawless appearance. Added Hyaluronic Acid will give a boost of Collagen, which will keep your skin plump, smooth and supple. This is an extremely lightweight serum & if you’re someone that worries about having too many steps in your routine or that the products feel heavy on your skin then this isn’t like that at all. I felt like it almost evaporated once it touched my skin (in a good way). It 100% left it feeling velvety soft and almost like it had a soft focus element to it. I adore this serum & I feel like its helped my skin beat the January blues.

Step 3 Firming and Moisturising Eye Gel*

The Firming & Moisturising Eye Gel targets dark circles and puffiness, and with added Hyaluronic acid will keep your eye area plump and will smooth out fine lines. It feels cooling when you first apply it and its not greasy at all but helps wake up my tired eyes each morning. I find my concealer sits well on top and a little goes a long way, the gel is so easy to pat in around the orbital bone. I am an eye cream addict and never go a day without using one, I have tried very few eye gels and I am smitten with this one. Its just so lightweight and nourishing.

Step 4 Protect and Repair 24hr Cream*

This cream  can be used either am or pm (or both if you wish). It contains added Hyaluronic Acid making it an intensive moisturiser and UVA & UVB protection so your skin is protected from the harmful effects of the sun. Its a lovely moisturiser and I have found it helps keep my skin blemish free and also feeling supple. I like how it wears under foundation, as my base looks smooth all day. Its been a welcomed addition to my skincare regime and think this product from the range will appeal to people of all skin types and ages.

Nourishing Treatment Oil

This is one of those multi purpose products and I love those, this has been getting a lot of love these past few weeks. I have enjoyed massaging it into my dry cuticles just before I go to bed, I like to use the excess as a hand treatment and I wakeup to the softest healthy looking hands. Its instantly nourishing and it is an oil that absorbs quickly too. This product is blended with Coconut and Sweet Almond Oil which will help to Renew, Repair and Revitalise skin, hair and nails.

All Eloquence skincare products contain no Artificial Perfume or Colour, no Parabens, no Harsh Chemicals and are Cruelty Free, which makes them suitable for all skin types, even dry and sensitive skin areas.

This is a fantastic skincare brand and when I first started testing out these products at the start of the new year I didn’t for one minute think I would enjoy using them all. There is normally one product I like least or that didn’t really fit my needs but this skincare regime is simple, effective and jam packed full of ingredients that nourish, replenish and rejuvenate your skin. This is a brand to keep your eye on & if like me you enjoy skincare then you need to add these products to your shopping  list asap.

Eloquence Skincare is available to purchase via their online shop

 

Updated Lip Balm Collection 2016

Current Lip Balm Collection

Soap & Glory Great Kisser in Juicy Peach

I got this in my stocking and I can’t wait to use it, it smells so good, quite sweet but omg so fruity. If you like peach scented products then this is for you. I have no idea what its like on the lips but I am going to put it in my car so I get a little use out of it. The tin is cute too.

Dr Paw Paw Original Balm

This is a multi purpose balm with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, the main ingredient is fermented Pawpaw. The Pawpaw has been found to have many soothing properties for our skin and hair, making it a real ‘go to’ product. I swear by this product for preventing and healing chapped lips. I also like to apply it over lipsticks to give them a glossy look! I carry my tube with me everywhere & always recoemmend it to family and friends. If you suffer from chapped lips you need to invest in this Balm, It really works.

Clinique Superbalm Lip Treatment

This is a really good lip treatment and leaves my lips very soft, its much like the Dr Paw Paw in texture. It is fragrance free and colourless which I like. It protects your lips against moisture loss and is a good one to apply before bed because its not at all sticky and doesn’t leave your lips greasy. I like the squeeze tube it makes it hygienic and easy to apply. This is also a great price too, especially for more of a luxurious brand £13.

eos Strawberry Sorbet

Over the years I’ve tried almost all the flavours but the berry ones are by far my favourite. I like that they’re both quite sweet but fruity. So pleased that Boots sell them now, which means they’re a lot easier to get your hands on. There is something cute about a lip balm thats a sphere, am I right? Which is your favourite scent?

My Lip Balm Selection

Vaseline Sugar Coated

Vaseline have started doing these limited edition tins more frequently and I am a sucker for anything like that. The tin is cute and the product isn’t too bad either, I wouldn’t say this is the most moisturising but it adds pretty sheen to your lips and is nice to wear with minimal makeup. It also smells lovely and sweet.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour

I love that this is in stick form, I used to have the pot but I much prefer it like this. I use this all the time and have repurchased it over and over again it just works and thats all there is to it. It keeps the moisture locked in and my lips feeling really healthy. Oh and it has SPF 15 which I really like so I know my lips are protected from the sun.

Blistex Cherry Intensive Moisturiser

You can’t go wrong with a Blistex lip product, so inexpensive and their range is always growing. There isn’t a Blistex product I have tried and not liked. This Cherry one smells authentic and not too sickly sweet. It has Shea butter & bees wax so it will protect your lips and also it has SPF15. It ticks all the boxes.

The Body Shop Born Lippy in Watermelon

This looks so pretty and glossy on the lips and watermelon is quite a different scent for me but I like it. It smells like Summer. Nothing groundbreaking about this, its just a nice hydrating lip balm with a lovely scent.

Favourite Lipbalms

Olive & Pomegranate Lip Care

My mum bought me this from Greece & its quite soft and almost melts on to your lips. The scent is subtle and a little fruity. Its a nice chap stick style lip balm to have in your handbag. It keeps my lips soft and hydrated for hours.

Sleek Pout Polish in The Show

I have had this for a while and I have no idea why I over looked it for so long. It adds a very subtle pink gloss to your lips & looks pretty. It contains Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E so it looks after your lips and it has SPF 15. I think the darker shades would be a little more pigmented but this a great everyday gloss.

Jurlique Love Balm

This is a great all rounder, so its not only for your lips but works to soothe dry or chapped skin. I like to use it on my cuticles and find it works to soften them before I give myself a manicure. Its a natural salve thats infused with the natural scent of roses and the scent it subtle but pretty. I like to carry this with me when I travel and find it a great multi purpose product.

NUXE Réve de Miel Lip Balm 

For me the NUXE lip balm is more of a treatment because it is quite thick and not the kind of lip product I would wear during the day. I like to put it on last thing at night, so I wake up with soft hydrated lips. I don’t think its great at helping soothe chapped lips but it is good at keeping your lips feeling soft and moisturised. A pot lasts forever & don’t be put off by the fact it says honey because it really doesn’t smell of honey.

Origins Ornament Christmas Bauble

Origins Ornament Christmas Bauble

Whilst in Debenhams buying Christmas gifts I just couldn’t resist treating myself to one of these super festive Origin Ornament Baubles. For the past couple of years I have wanted one but they always sell out so quickly and if I am not mistaken used to just be exclusive to Selfridges so this year I snapped one up early on so I wasn’t disappointed.

Origins Give and Give Back

When you purchase this limited edition bauble you also support Origins and Global ReLeaf 25th Anniversary with the “Give & Give Back” campaign & they will plant a tree on your behalf.

Origns Ornimental Festive bauble

For £12 you get 5 deluxe samples, a great selection of Origins skincare & a makeup item too. The bauble is cute too and you could easily reuse it each year and pop something inside.

  • Modern Friction™ Nature’s gentle dermabrasion
  • Original Skin™ Retexturing Mask with Rose Clay
  • Clear Improvement® Active charcoal mask to clear pores
  • Drink Up™ Hydrating lip balm in Plum Punch
  • Peace of Mind® On-the-spot relief

I have tried two out of the three products and I love them. Modern Friction, Peace of Mind & Drink Up Lip Balm are new to me and I’m excited to try them out. The lipbalm is in a gorgeous berry shade and smells minty. There is something fun about mini sized products & I am away in January for a couple of days so will be taking all of these away with me.

Origins Festive Bauble

All the Origins Christmas gift options this year are so nice and I bought a few as gifts but thought this was a good treat to myself without spending too much money. If you still have gifts to buy or want to treat yourself to a festive Origins set then you can find them in Debenhams, John Lewis and Boots so there is still time before Xmas to snap one up.

Jurlique Balancing Essentials Gift Set

Jurlique Gift Set #UnwrapJurlique

This year Jurlique have released some lovely Limited Edition Gift Sets for Christmas, they look luxurious and utterly beautiful. I think if you’re buying a gift for someone that loves skincare Jurlique is a wonderful brand to either introduce them too or add to their collection.

I have been enjoying their Balancing Essentials Gift Set – the gift set comes beautifully packaged in a lovely festive red sleeve that slips off to reveal a beautiful gift box. The box is wood effect & is of great quality, its a box that you will be able to reuse and keep your treasures in. I know I will be keeping mine, its too pretty not too.

This set comes with 3 full sized products that will help keep your skin smooth, soft and hydrated. This set isn’t targeted at a specific age range which I like so its the perfect set to buy for anyone. The products are gentle and would be suited to almost all skin types.

#UnwrapJurlique

Jurlique Balancing Day Care Cream 40ml

I have used quite a few Jurlique products but this one was new to me and there hasn’t been a day this past month that I haven’t reached for it. This is a really nice lightweight cream, it feels comfortable on the skin and not at all greasy. This for me has been a really good moisturiser for these colder months because its lightweight but leaves my skin incredibly hydrated even around my nose which tends to get really dry and flakey. It also helps smooth skin, improve elasticity. It contains some lovely ingredients,

  • Calendula and chamomile to soothe and combat dryness
  • Marshmallow, avocado, safflower, jojoba, shea butter, macadamia and evening primrose oil all work to hydrate and prevent the loss of moisture
  • Green tea, grapeseed, turmeric, vitamin A & E all provide antioxidant properties to the skin

So its bursting with skin benefits and its also formulated to protect your skin from environmental aggressors which is becoming more and more important especially if you live in more of a built up area. Oh and scent is always important to me and this cream has a slight floral scent which I find relaxing.

Jurlique Balancing Foaming Cleanser 200ml

I used this a couple of years ago when I was getting some redness in my cheeks and I remember it being very gentle so its nice to have this back in my skincare routine. I tend to use it in the evening because its its so good at breaking down makeup and dirt leaving skin clean, radiant and feeling soft. It has a gel like texture and is easy to massage into the skin. It leaves behind to greasy residue and your skin isn’t left with that tight stripped feeling. It cleans without removing all your moisture.

  • Rosehip Oil helps restore skin radiance
  • Ginseng Root helps firm the skin
  • Vitamins C & E and Ginkgo Biloba help to protect and restore skin
  • Marshmallow intensely hydrates, softens and soothes

It smells lovely and makes me feel like I am in a Spa. A little product goes a long way too so don’t use too much.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist 50ml

I was so happy to see this face mist in this set, I have spoken about this so many times on my blog and would name it in my top 5 skincare products. I just love it. Its such a refreshing face mist, I love how it stops my skin from drying out and the rose scent is very uplifting and calming. A few spritz of this leaves my skin feeling soft, soothed and hydrated. You can use it on top of your makeup without unsettling it and it just keeps your skin nourished and feeling fresh. Its easy to see why its one of Jurlique’s bestsellers!

  • Marshmallow and glycerin help prevent moisture loss and intensely hydrate and soften the skin.
  • Rose and Aloe Vera soften, soothe and calm the skin.
  • Grapefruit Seed provides antioxidant protection.

You can use it when you travel to keep skin fresh and hydrated, at your desk to refresh your skin, on top of your makeup and I also spray it before I use a face mask. There are so many uses for this face mist and I always have a bottle open and on my desk!

Jurlique Balancing Essentials

The Balancing Essentials Gift Set £59 is the perfect Christmas gift and as I said it comes beautifully packaged with 3 lovely Jurlique skincare essentials. What a treat it would be to get this under the tree this year!

If you want more gift inspiration make sure you take a look at Jurlique’s Christmas Shop they have so many limited edition sets for sale & there is a gift to suit everyone. Let me know if anything catches your eye.
