Oyster Brightening Eye Serum

Oyster Brightening Eye Serum is a brand new premium brand formulated in British laboratories.  It is also vegan and contains a multitude of natural active ingredients to produce a lightweight serum that gives results.  Although perfume free it has a subtle aroma of essential oil – lavender, grapefruit and mandarin.

It comes in an easy to dispense pump style bottle and just enough serum comes out to use around both eyes.  It’s easily absorbed and I found it great to use both morning and at night time.  It’s more powerful ingredients include smoothing Hyaluronic acid, anti-wrinkle Pentapeptides and Co-enzyme Q10 along with antioxidant Green Tea & Raspberry Extracts and gently soothing Cornflower.  Combined the ingredients tackle anti ageing, puffy eyes and dark circles.

I have been using this for the last couple of weeks and love the feel of it around my eye area.  It is a transparent gel like serum that feels soothing and hydrating on application but you can also feel it’s gentle firming effects.  My eye area looks brighter and more youthful which is a great way to start the day and the perfect base for my eyes before applying moisturiser and make up.

I’m really pleased with the Oyster Brightening Eye Serum and will enjoy continuing to use as well as being a product I would be happy to purchase again in the future.

I’ve been lucky to try out some of the products included in this deal and I can tell you that they are brilliant for protecting and looking after your skin.  They are great for ageing skin and use high end technology and ingredients to really care and treat your skin.


You can read about most of the products in my previous review for Time Bomb but I must just tell you about their newest product.  Instawow is a sparkling facial mask that is new to the Time Bomb range and this is the first time I’ve tried it out myself.

A clear gel is applied to clean skin and almost immediately it starts to fizz across your whole face.  Little white foam bubbles appear and spend the next five minutes fizzing away which does have a slight tickly sensation, nothing like I’ve felt before with a face mask. You then massage any excess away into the face and then rinse off.  It is super light but also very effective

The Results

Wow! This product certainly should be called Instawow, my face was left glowing and fresh, with a light, luminous effect to it.  It also felt ultra soft and smooth, like baby skin – I love it!!

Packed with energising citrus extracts and sparkling glycerine, this mask works deep down in the pores with it’s fizzing to remove make up and debris whilst leaving your skin brighter, cleaner and tighter!  A must have this party season to get your skin looking tip top before a night out, and also clearer the morning after!

FaceTox Detoxifying Face Mask – Review

FaceTox is a highly powerful detoxifying face mask that will leave your skin looking squeaky clean, pores look fresh and clear and your whole facial skin looks totally refreshed and recharged.  I couldn’t wait to try this out to give my skin a treat and help to keep it tip top condition with the ageing years upon me.


The set of masks is presented in a box with everything you need to apply the product.  I received a set of 7 masks each of which requires two sachets, a mask mix and organic rose water which is mixed together before use and applied to your face.  Also included is a small bowl and spatula to mix the mask up in, and the spatula can then be used to apply the mask to your skin.

The mask is designed to:

  •     Prevent and draw out blackheads
  •     Reduce the appearance of scars
  •     Even skin tone
  •     Draw out external toxins
  •     Heal and regenerate skin tissue
  •     Unclog & shrink pores

The organic rose water smells utterly divine and I couldn’t wait to add it to the mask powder to create my mask.  The sachets contain the perfect amount of ingredients so it’s a case of just tipping them all into the bowl and mixing it up until it resembles a thick, mud like texture.

facetox-2The mask feels quite cold and damp on application but you leave it for 30 minutes to dry out during which time you will feel your skin become tighter as the mask draws out all the impurities, toxins and unclogs pores.

It requires a little bit of effort to remove the mask, but I have to say the results are worth it.  My face looked exceptionally clear after and felt really smooth, soft and firmed.  The mask really does work it’s magic and has a powerful effect at deep cleansing the skin.  I would definitely use this again to give my skin a boost and thorough clean, the results are far superior to more basic masks I’ve used in the past.  FaceTox does what it says on the box, a complete detox for you face – give it a try today!

Q10 Caviar Nourishing Face Mask – Review

With my 40’s now upon me, I love to treat my skin and give it an anti ageing boost whenever I get the chance.  Pampering time is a rarity these days with two young children about, but when I do get a bit of me time, it’s always worth the while.

Timeless Truth have a wide range of high quality, luxury face masks using cutting edge materials that let the masks fit closely to the face allowing for maximum product absorption into the skin.

timeless truth 2I tried the Q10 Caviar Nourishing Mask, designed to enhance your skin’s natural beauty, to preserve its elasticity and restore its radiant glow.  With the main ingredients being Coenzyme Q10, Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E, this mask’s main benefits include:

  • Anti-Ageing
  • Prevent Wrinkles
  • Smoothes Fine Lines
  • Brightening
  • Moisturising

When I tore open the sachet, the mask came out neatly folded up.  It is exceptionally moist and loaded with the rich serum that was about to be absorbed on my face.  The cloth mask unfolded and unlike usual masks which just sit on the front of your face, this goes right under the jaw line and has side panels that fold up and hook over your ears.  The mask literally moulds around your face and can be stretched and adjusted to fit tightly against the contours to ensure maximum penetration of the ingredients.

timeless truthI then had the chance to sit back and relax for 20 mins while the mask got to work.  Once removed any excess serum can be massaged into the skin for best results.

My skin definitely felt more moisturised and looked brighter.  For maximum anti ageing results a series of masks is recommended, although being a luxury beauty product they do cost £6.50 a mask.

I think these would make a nice treat before a night out etc to give you a radiant glow and hydration boost that your skin may need.

Gold Collagen Forte® – Review

Turning 40 this month makes me feel old, and in turn I know that my skin is ageing quicker than I’d like.  I don’t want to feel old and am keen to try out anything to make me feel and look younger.  I’ve tried a month’s supply of Gold Collagen Forte®, a peach and lychee flavoured nutritional drink

goldThe drink is full of powerful anti-oxidants that fight against the signs of ageing and help the renewal of collagen, the main benefits being:

  • Helps protect against oxidative stress
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Promotes skin suppleness and firmness
  • Improves skin hydration and radiance
  • Promotes healthy hair and nails

gold 2So what did it taste like?

It’s flavoured of peach and lychee, but has a very rich taste although is only 2-3 mouthfuls so is easy to take each morning with breakfast.

Did I notice any difference?

Well I have been trying hard with diet, exercise, less wine, more water on the run up to my 40th but I can honestly say my face does feel softer and more plumped.  My nails are definitely less brittle, more flexible which means less breakages (especially with two young children around).  My hair does feel shiny and bouncy at the moment.  Obviously it’s hard to tell after just a month’s use but I do feel that Gold Collagen Forte® has made some difference which is great news.  Anything to feel more fabulous at 40 is more than welcome!

How much does it cost?

Well it isn’t cheap.  A box of 10 bottles which is a 10 day supply is £40.00, but this is a high quality supplement and if you want the results then I believe this will work.

Final thoughts

I do think it’s hard to quote how much a supplement has worked over a month but I can honestly say that everything feels softer, hair, nails and skin.  A more supple feeling and if that would improve with further use of the supplement then I can genuinely say that this works and is definitely something to give you both a more youthful look and feeling.  Certainly the best product I’ve tried but then I guess you get what you pay for and if this product is in your budget then I would try it as I believe in it and think that it gives results.

SkinPep® 4 Step Growth Factor Vampire Collagen Treatment – Review

SkinPep® 4 Step Growth Factor Vampire Collagen Treatment is a one stop, 30 day full anti ageing treatment program to help combat all the signs of ageing skin, boost your skins hydration levels and leave you with clearer, more radiant skin.skinpepsThe set consists of:

STEP 11 x SkinPep® Titanium Micro Needle Skin Roller 0.3mm

STEP 21 x SkinPep® Wrinkle Clear Growth Factor Serum 30ml

STEP 3 – 8 x SkinPep® Collagen Growth Factor Face Mask

STEP 41 x SkinPep® Super C15 Serum 30ml

skinpeps 2STEP 1 – Each day starting with cleansed skin, you use the dermal roller by going over each area of skin ten times in both a horizontal and vertical direction.  At first I found this a little strange, not painful, just a little tickly across the skin, but soon got used to it and happily tried to do this most days before applying the serums.  By rolling the micro needles across the skin, tiny holes are made allowing the serums to penetrate deeper into the skin and also boosts your own collagen renewal.

STEP 2 – Then apply the Wrinkle Clear Growth Factor Serum which comes in an easy to dispense pump bottle.  I just used two pumps and rubbed between my fingers before massaging into the face.  This is a light, easily absorbed serum that feels gentle on the skin and is simply to apply.

P1000606STEP 3 – Once or twice a week you need to apply the Collagen Growth Factor Face Mask.  This is a clear gel like sheet that you peel off a backing sheet and place on your face.  It easily smooths around the contours of your face and adheres with the serum on it.  I found this quite relaxing and an ideal time to put my feet up for 30 to 40 minutes whilst the serum soaks into the skin.  You can also dissolve the remaining mask afterwards in hot water and massage the resulting serum into your face for a further hydrating boost!

STEP 4 – After the mask, it’s time to apply the Super C15 Serum, which comes in a glass bottle with a pipette style applicator as only a few drops of this super strength serum are required.  On the days you don’t use the mask, just apply this straight after the Wrinkle Clear Growth Factor Serum.   I have to admit that the first time I applied this I noticed a tingling feeling all over my face, it wasn’t unpleasant, just unexpected.  This did die down though over the next few days and now I hardly notice it.

You can watch me follow the regime here:

So how did I find the routine?

I thoroughly enjoyed giving my face a little bit of pampering time each day rather than just slapping some moisturiser on in a rush.  I found the skin roller to be quite therapeutic and it felt like it was doing my skin some good.  Adding the serums to my face is nice as you are left with soft, smooth feeling skin afterwards.  I could easily continue with this routine everyday as it really doesn’t take long once you know what you are doing.  The mask obviously takes longer but it is relaxing and I tried to use it when the children weren’t around so I could lay down for half an hour and chill.

Do I notice any difference in my skin?

I definitely think my skin looks brighter and more radiant, my pores seem more refined and my face feels very soft and smooth.  I do think my fine lines do look a little plumped and smoother than before and I’m definitely feeling more confident with my skin.  I have some deep grooves at the top of my nose between my eyebrows and these have definitely relaxed a little.  My skin tone seems to have evened out and fingers crossed I have been blemish free for the last few weeks.  The serums really help give my skin a youthful glow, exactly what I need as I prepare to turn 40 in a few days time!!
