Lancome Renergie Multi-Lift Day Cream (Light)
I was lucky to receive a jar of the new Lancome Renergie Multi-Lift Day Cream (Light) from Beautyheaven to trial as part of their Beautyheaven trial team.This cream is perfect for anyone concerned with the early signs of ageing.
This moisturising day cream comes beautifully packaged in a silver box with a gold embossed rose. The cream itself is contained in a luxurious purple and silver glass jar.
Purple used to be the colour associated with royalty and this cream is definitely luxurious enough to be used by royalty. I can imagine both Princess Mary and the Duchess of Cambridge, applying this cream to their faces each morning.
Lancome Renergie Multi-Lift Day Cream (Light) has a lovely light floral scent and the cream itself has a silky, thick luxurious consistency, pale pink in colour.
Lancome recommend applying this cream, massaging it outwards and upwards. I found the ritual of this massage each morning to be very relaxing and therapeutic in itself. There is a video of the recommended massaging technique on the Lancome website here.
I found the cream to absorb easily and quickly into my skin and my skin felt smoother, silkier and definitely more hydrated after application.
I love the fact that this cream contains SPF15 which I see as an important anti-ageing inclusion in day creams. This cream is advertised by Lancome as being a "redefining lifting cream, anti-wrinkle, firming and contouring".
Following one month of daily usage I have found my skin to feel smoother and firmer and to look more radiant. My skin also looks "plumper" and as a result some of my fine lines have noticeably diminished.
I absolutely love this cream and will be repurchasing it, which says a lot as this cream is not cheap, at $147 for 50ml, but fortunately a little of it goes a long way.
Beyonce Rise Sheer
One of my all time favourite beauty products is fragrance! I don't feel fully dressed unless I have a fragrance on. I've been wearing fragrances ever since my much loved Nana gave me a bottle of her favourite fragrance 4711 for my 9th birthday. I remember feeling so grown up and sophisticated when I unwrapped it. Of course my tastes in fragrances have changed and developed somewhat since then!
As a result I was extremely happy this month to receive a bottle of Beyonce's new limited edition Rise Sheer fragrance from Coty PR Australia.
I love Beyonce! She is a talented, sheer genius in my eyes, who has risen to super star status, constantly reinventing herself and her fragrances.
Rise Sheer is a limited edition fragrance and part of Beyonce's third fragrance family, Rise. Her first two fragrance families being Heat and Pulse.
Rise Sheer is a lighter, fresher version of Rise. Just like Beyonce herself, Rise Sheer is captivating and alluring! It is a gorgeous, sparkling, floral scent blended with the following notes:
Top notes: Italian Bergamot, Sicilian lemon, iced basil sorbet
Middle notes: Gold symphony orchid, white peony, hydroponic jasmine
Base notes: Blonde woods, sheer musk, white amber.
Not only do I love the scent of Beyonce's Rise Sheer, I also love the elegant gold lidded bottle design. It looks stunning sitting on my mirrored fragrance tray with my other fragrances.
This fragrance lasts up to three hours on my skin after which I need to reapply it. Tip: I often spray a bit on my clothes to make it last longer!
OPI Hawaii Collection Nail Polishes
This month I've also really been loving these three nail polishes from the OPI Hawaii collection. I wrote a blog post on them here last week so I won't repeat myself too much other than to say the creamy formula of these polishes is excellent. I achieve a completely opaque look with just two coats of these polishes. When applied with a base and top coat these polishes last me for 5 days with no chips. A brilliant result considering how much I use my hands at work and home.
Typo Pink Flamingo
Pencil Case Makeup Bag
My last April favourite item is from Typo. I know this is a stationery store and not a beauty store but when I saw this totally gorgeous pink flamingo pencil case I simply had to have it.
As my current makeup bag was worn out and slightly ripped it was definitely time to replace it and what better to replace it with than this pink flamingo Typo pencil case! I love it!
I might have a slight obsession with pink flamingos! I also bought the matching pink flamingo notebook from Typo which I now use for my blogging notes plus I bought a fluffy pink flamingo pen from the $2 shop.
One can never have enough makeup, fragrances, beauty products OR pink flamingo products! Don't you agree?
