Skincare Update + WIWT Snakeprint & Grey

My Midlife Fashion, Revitalash, Gel Hyaluronic

Eyelash Conditioner - RevitaLash

Morning ladies today I wanted to update you on a couple of new beauty products I've added to my daily routine that are making a real difference.

I don't know about you but I love it when women share their beauty secrets with others & whilst on holiday this summer in Majorca my lovely friend shared a couple of beauty 'must haves' that she'd been using for a while & noticed great results.

Well one thing that's going to get me 'clicking that button' in an instance is someone telling me how their skin has improved since using a product, as whilst I might not agree with cosmetic procedures as I'm too scared of needles & also worry about the implications later on in life, I'll happily give anything a go that can be applied to the skin as who doesn't want to look more youthful?!

So the first product is a product that I bought in Majorca & have been using for just under 2 months & absolutely love.  The product is a Hyaluronic gel which is like a face serum & can either be used on it's own or before your mosituriser (just apply 10 minutes before any moisturiser).  Now I have to admit I'd not really heard of the benefits of Hyaluronic gel but after being given the tip off one morning at breakfast I spent the next hour or so googling the ingredients whilst sunning myself on the sun lounger & in a nut shell it retains moisture & creates a cushion to help plump the appearance of aging skin.  

As I've already mentioned I'm really impressed, it soaks in really quickly into the skin, is lovely & light & you really don't feel you're wearing it.  Plus as I've mentioned above you can use it will your normal face cream if you wish but I've just been using it on it's own every morning & evening & yes I've seen a real difference - my skin definitely looks smoother & plumper, which has been verified by the hubby & my mum!

My Midlife Fashion Gel Hyaluronic

As my normal skin mosituriser isn't supposed to be used if your face is being exposed to the sun I've only been using the serum but now that summer has been & gone I'm going to try adding my night face cream as well to see if there's any benefit.

Plus one of the most unique things about this gel is that the strength of the Hyaluronic is 40%, which according to my friend is a much higher concentration than you can buy over here in the UK.  

Now my friend rates it that much that she buys a years worth of the gel every summer to last her until the next year.  Like I said I've been using it for just under 2 months & am hooked.  I've been applying it to my face, neck & décolletage twice a day & a think a bottle should just about last me a full two months.  

Of course having fallen in love with the product I was a little concerned about buying another bottle as although I'd love the opportunity to fly over to Majorca each time I need to restock it's sadly not practical but I've managed to speak with the supplier & they've kindly agreed to post replacements out to me.  Plus for anyone who's interested they have also kindly said I can take orders :-)  So if you're interested ladies just email me here.  Like I've said there's definitely a difference to my skin & its something that's now firmly in my daily skincare routine so I'd recommend you give it a go.

The second product I'm also hooked on & again was recommended by my friend on holiday is RevitaLash, which is an advanced eyelash conditioner that not only conditions your eyelashes but also helps lengthen them to.   Again my friend swears by this product & I've been using it for approximately 5 weeks & I can definitely see a difference in the length of my lashes & I don't seem to have as many fallling out either.  So another great tip off from my friend :-)

Whilst I'm talking skincare I also thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share with you my daily skincare & beauty regimes, as since reviewing a few products my daily routines have been updated.

So ladies what do you think?  Are you tempted to try the Hyaluronic gel?  Like I said I have definitely noticed a difference & my Mum is so impressed I'm ordering some for her.  Maybe you've tried the RevitaLash - if so did you notice a great difference to your lashes?  Or perhaps you've got a secret potion that you'd like to share - after all if something is making your skin look & feel a lot better it's nice to share the knowledge with others.

As always I'd love to hear your thoughts.  

Enjoy your day & I'll be back in the morning.

  1. Hi Jane, Hope you're all well. I have been using Revitalash for a couple of years now and love it. I only use it a couple of times a week now as my lashes are the length I want them so the bottle lasts for far longer than expected which is good for my wallet! Xx

    1. Hi Kareema yes I'm great thanks. Hope all is good with you too.
      I've been really impressed with RevitaLash so far & that's great news to hear you've been using it for so long & love it. Such a great tip for using it a couple of days a week once the lashes are the length you want. I shall definitely try this.
