Indeed Labs: Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask | Review

Greetings again readers!
I’m going to start off with telling you about a little bit about my skin; during summer with the humidity here in Australia my skin pretty much becomes an oil slick. However during the colder months it’s like my skin becomes the Sahara Desert and unfortunately this winter is no exception.

But this winter I am lucky enough to try the Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask by Indeed Labs*. The box contains four sachets which hold sheets soaked in the formula. The key ingredient in this product appears to be the “3D hyaluronic acid” which basically equates to a whole lot of moisture! Instructions for these mask are simple: cleanse your face, slap on the mask for 15 minutes, take it off and rub in the excess. So the first thing I love about this product is that there is no mess to wash off your face like other masks. 

The next thing I love and what you all came to read is, it really does make a difference and is so moisturising without leaving me oily! The excess product absorbs into your skin without leaving any oil or film behind and my skin feels so much softer afterwards. It also looks more plump and healthy.

I feel like the one downside to this product is that it is fairly pricey compared to the amount you get in the Hydraluron tube. So for me, as a special treat I love these and would definitely recommend them to others.

Oh and don’t worry, they come with peep holes!

May Favourites | 2014

Hello my lovely readers, 
Well it is that time of the month again (no not that time, the other time!) where we all put together our favourite products we have been using over the past four weeks. This is what made this months top 5 in my makeup world:

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso
MAC Glam Lipstick

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder:
This is a great affordable setting powder, for the size and quality it is well worth the money. I have been using the shade "Translucent" and it is an excellent powder for setting my highlight because it doesn't cake and really improves the length of time my concealer/foundation lasts. I love this so much this is actually a repurchased product of mine. 

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation:
This is yet another product I have repurchased! Now if you have seen my foundation collection you will know that it is a BIG DEAL for me to repurchase a foundation because my collection stands at close to 30 different types of foundation already. (Who needs 30 different foundations? I do okay!) But I love this foundation for everyday use as it has nice light medium coverage with a natural dewy finish. It also smells good too!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer:
Ladies (and gentlemen) I would like to introduce you to my HOLY GRAIL concealer. Now holy grail is not a term I throw around lightly and I was sceptical of all the hype surrounding this concealer at first, but let me tell you, the people are right. This concealer is fantastic. It's the only concealer I have found in my long journey of concealer searching that has amazing coverage without being cakey. It's also the least creasing concealer I have tried in my lifetime. 

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso:
Milani you have stolen my heart with your little golden baked blushes. I currently only own two of these but plan on collecting them like Pokemon! (That was a gotta catch them all reference... Okay... No more pokemon references from now on) Luminoso is a gorgeous shimmery peachy shade that would suit most skin tones and is very pigmented for a "drugstore" product! If you haven't tried Milani blushes yet I was seriously recommend them!

MAC Glam Lipstick:
Okay if you read my blog, or just my last post even, you will now know I am IN LOVE with this lipstick. The colour is a gorgeous blue based red, it doesn't bleed or transfer and lasts ages on my lips even though it's not a long-wearing lipstick. 

So that's it for this months favourites, what products made the cut for you guys?!
