Giveaway Post Plus New In Beauty 2020

It’s been a while since I shared new beauty products with you. Some I’ve had for a while and I want to recommend them to you and others are fairly new but I think they’re worth mentioning, and I will tell more as time goes by for a proper review. There’s also a giveaway to be had too but more on that later.

One of my favourite makeup brands Trinny London has come up with a brilliant little invention! The makeup brush set that’s super slim and fits so easily into your handbag.

Trinny Woodall seems to know exactly what us women need when it comes to makeup and the brand has grown so strong now and gone from strength to strength. The ever famous BFF is pretty much a cult product and I don’t know what I would do without it now! You can have a read up on this brilliant CC cream here I’m just about to order my third one!

Three brushes for your makeup needs. Lip brush, eyeliner, and eyeshadow blender. All magnetic so it all stays as one pen or you can, like me stick them to your vanity mirror No rummaging! I think this is a great piece of kit. It’s actually called the T-Kit. Do take a look around the Trinny London website, I especially recommend the BFF and I also love the Miricle Blur for covering up wrinkles and imperfections. It’s an amazing filler, the best I’ve tried. There are also some great makeup tips on there too.

Not so new to the blog is the Revolution Pro Conceal and hydrate foundation. Now I have grown to love this. It’s actually replaced my Estee Lauder Double wear foundation that I have worn for many years.

The coverage is just as good as is the lasting power of this foundation but at a fraction of the cost. The only low down I can find is that the Conceal and hydrate doesn’t have any SPF in it but I mix one pump of this with one pump of my Trinny London BFF which has an SPF 30 so I’m ok with that.

The other beauty is the price. My Estee Lauder costs around £28.00 but the Revolution Pro is less than half the price at £9,00

Hiding imperfections with Pore Blur

New in the makeup bag is the Pore Blur by Revolution Pro. I’m finding the pores on my nose are getting bigger and I want to find something to rectify this but until then I’m finding this primer is helping hide those imperfections.

Applied before foundation, I don’t think it’s clever enough to fill the wrinkles like the Miricle Blur but it certainly helps give a lovely smooth finish and helps hide those pesky pores plus the broken vein on my nose. Another bargain at £6.00

I really think The Revolution Pro makeup is worth a look and if you want to know more about the makeup you can catch a step by step makeup here

Having my first dabble with Retinol

I’ve been wanting to try some Retinol for some time now. I’ve heard so much about how it gives clearer skin and it’s great antiageing properties.

I’ve also read that it’s good for shrinking large pores and congested skin, so I’m eager to crack on with this. My skin can be quite sensitive, so I’m just applying this to my nose every other night.

I’m on my fourth use and I will report back to you if I think it’s made a difference. The reviews for this serum by Skin Chemists is very good and they have some really interesting potions over on their site.

The Espa Hydrating Floral Spafresh was part of my Espa advent calendar. Out of all the items it was this that I wanted to start using first. I love hydrating sprays and this doesn’t disappoint at all!

With the central heating being on during the winter months a hydrating spray is great for quenching your skin with moisture. I’ve sprayed this over my face wearing makeup and it doesn’t unsettle it at all. The smell is amazing.

This can be used as a toner after cleansing if you wish. Something I don’t do but I love using it over my makeup for re-hydration, the Hydrating Floral Spafresh is a quick way of moisturising through the day while still wearing your makeup!

A giveaway to make you feel good

I was gifted this intro package by Lumity. I’ve trialled the cleanser, and boy this is a good deep cleansing little pot! It was weird slathering black all over my face though!

Made from 31 botanical ingredients including charcoal, you can use this as a face mask after too. It certainly left my skin feeling really clean. After the cleanse your advised to use the oil. Containing a blend of high performing natural plant oils and extracts this mini facial left my skin feeling amazing.

The Supplements, unfortunately, I can’t use due to my allergies. So I thought rather than let them go to waste, I thought I’d send to one of my readers to try if you fancy it?

You can read more about the supplements here on the Lumity site. There are seven days of each Morning and evening. Just retweet the post in the sharing button so I know who is interested and a winner will be chosen in the next couple of weeks. UK only please apply!

    I really need to try more from the Trinny range plus, the Revolution products. The Revolution range gets such great reviews and we can’t argue for the great prices.

    Hi Laurie

    I’m interested in the Trinny products you mentioned. I certainly need wrinkle filling and pore blurring. I had the lumity products too and love them for travel. I’ve shown them in a YouTube video on my cleansing routine.

    I need something for my pores too. I also really struggle with dry skin on my face so the moisturising spray sounds ideal! #pocolo

    I need some new products for covering blemishes. I am experiencing these nasty breakouts with my cycle again that the flaxseed oil was helping, but seems to have temporarily stopped…or it was just a really bad hormonal month. In any event, a good blemish concealer is on my list of things I need. I love that you are giving away products that you can’t use. It is so much better than letting them go to waste. By the way, I tweeted the post only because I tweet every post I read…I am not in the UK so don’t include me in the potential giveaway winners. Thanks for sharing and linking up, Laurie!

    Hi Laurie
    I just did a skin care review on my site and am gettng a few more things sent. Nice to try different products right? The retinol sounds good!I have been using NCN skincare retinol, as was introduced to a few years ago and the other has her own lab . I use it each night! Love the Trinny brushes too! I always enjoy reading about different products. I bought a few prof. makeup brushes recently that have made a difference in foundation application.
    thanks for linking!

    Awesome giveaway X #anythinggoes

  15. January 14, 2020 / 8:41 pm

    Good luck to everyone who can enter the giveaway! 🙂

    they sound like interesting products – it’s good you have so many new things to try! I’ve heard nothing but good things about retinols but also that they make your skin a little more sensitive to the sun which is a big thing to avoid here with the sun being around so much, haha! So I’ve never tried them!

    Hope that your week is off to a good start 🙂

    You have some good picks here Laurie, and I too love the Lumity products, don’t they smell divine. Jacqui x

    I didn’t realise that Trinny Woodall had a make up range but it sounds awesome. I love the idea of magnetic brushes! #DreamTeam

    I’m hooked on the Igtv of Trinny Woodall. Love that woman’s style! I really I’m going to check out her site for some products!
