I’m Backkkk! Yes I know it has been far too long since the last time I wrote to you guys! Hope you have all been well!
My apologies for the lack of posts lately, I have been SO busy the past few weeks. I commenced study at the start of February and started a new job in the same week so there’s been a lot of organising etc going on. Not only that, I’ve been a little tired. It was a big adjustment going from doing practically nothing (I haven’t worked since before Christmas last year – eek!) to suddenly studying and working, all starting within the same week. However, the good news is that my study and employment are both in the beauty industry so I will have lots of information, knowledge and tips to share with you guys! The fact that I will not only be able to write based on personal experience and opinion, but will soon be able to give you advice on a professional level excites me so much! I hope you’re all looking forward to that just as much as I am :)
Okay, review time! As most of you probably already know, I am now working alongside the skin care line ‘dermalogica’. Can I just say, YAY! I’ve only tried a few products since starting and already, I am in L.O.V.E! I cannot wait to try so many more products of theirs… I have a feeling most of my collection will soon be dermalogica :p
The first dermalogica product I am reviewing for you guys is their intensive eye repair (pictured above). I chose to write about this one first as the results from this product appeared almost immediately for me! I am a huge fan of eye creams and this one is now by far my favourite!
I can see a significant improvement in the fine lines around my eyes and my eye area is looking and feeling much more hydrated since using this product.
The ingredients include Vitamin A, Wild Yam Extract and Pro Vitamin B to help combat the signs of premature ageing and damage as well as skin replenishing phytonutrients to help increase elasticity and skin texture. It also contains Vitamin C and E plus Grapeseed Extract to shield the delicate eye area against further environmental damage.
Like all of dermalogica’s products, it’s free from common irritants and ingredients that can cause breakouts etc (including lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, artificial colors and fragrances).
One of my favourite things about this eye cream is how great is looks underneath my makeup. Applying makeup over this product is a dream! In the past I have struggled to find an eye treatment that doesn’t go oily or look patchy underneath my eye makeup. Not this time! My makeup looks so good, it’s as though this eye cream works as a primer. It creates the perfect base on my eye area for flawless makeup application.
When wearing dermalogica intensive eye repair, my eye makeup stays on all day and looks smooth. No line enhancement that can sometimes happen when wearing makeup around the eye area.
Seriously guys, what’s not to love!?
I apply this product before my face moisturiser, after I have cleansed and toned, patting it into my eye area blending inward from the outer corner.
You only need the tiniest amount (less than half a pea size) so this product is sure to last you a long time.
Make sure to pat the treatment very gently onto your skin, as the area around your eyes is very delicate and thin compared to the rest of the skin on your face. Never press heavily or pull the area when applying your eye cream.
dermalogica products are only available from quality skin care professionals trained at the International Dermal Institute so you won’t find them at your local supermarket or chemist (drug store) but there are plenty of locations to purchase them from including day spas and beauty salons etc..
You can also purchase them online (Australia) here.
I think this is a fantastic product and I am so happy it’s now a part of my skincare routine. I honestly couldn’t be more pleased. It’s perfect for my skin and current concerns.
I highly recommend dermalogica intensive eye repair if you’re suffering from any dehydration or premature aging. It’s a win!
One last thing I wanted to mention before saying see ya later is a fellow blogger that I think you should all follow. This lovely girl has the most amazing reviews! She is a new blogger (like myself) but already, I have learnt so much from her. I check her page almost every day to see if she has posted something new! Her posts are mostly all beauty related, are informative, well written and super fun. She has a great personality!
Not only is this lady a great blogger, but she is also a beautiful person. A few days ago, when she had seen that I received a nasty message on my blog, she went out of her way to send me a message telling me how much she LOVED my blog and Instagram. How sweet! It’s people like her that make it worth it and remind you that for every bad person out there, there are 100 good ones! Thank you Jess! ♡♡♡
You can find Jess’s blog ‘DreamOfThis’ here.
Ah, it feels so good to have finally gotten a new post up for you guys! I hope you enjoyed it! Again, sorry I’ve been so slack. I will definitely try and be more consistent with my posts.
I will have a lot of homework etc for a while and I’ll be a lot busier than usual so it may take a bit more adjusting but I’ll get into a good post routine soon enough, promise!
Anyway have a great weekend guys! Chat to you soon :)
Love Kel ♡xoo
