The Verso brand has received a great deal of hype the last few years, famous for their Retinol 8 ingredient, featured in all of their products. While trying their face products have been on my to-try list for a while, and still are, it’s their Eye Serum that first got me to cave and try the brand. Retinol aren’t typically featured in eye products, and certainly not serums, so it’s quite a unique product.
After a lot of back and forth I've decided to do another project pan. I haven't done one in a while as I got a little burnt out doing them, and also I didn't feel I really had many products I felt like panning. To be honest, the reason why I'm mostly doing this now is I realised there's quite a few things I'd love to focus on using up, and while doing that, why not do some posts and share it on the blog?
Long-time readers will remember me raving about and going through tube after tube of Indeed Labs Hydraluron Serum. I still love it, there’s no reason I’m not still using it other than other things needs to be used up, and I have a tendency to be a bit unfaithful with sticking to my serums. Either way, Indeed Labs are still providing some hyaluronic acid to my life, but in the form of their Hydraluron Moisture Jelly. A product that on first glance seem very similar to the serum, but is definitely a different product.
Not only is this empties post late, it's also not as crammed full as usual. I put that down to travelling to Cannes for five days, as I did finish up a few samples there that I didn't bring back with me. While it's not an insane amount of stuff, I've finished products in every category that is the most difficult, so that I am pretty happy about, those categories being makeup, nail polish and hair products.
First of all I would just like to say sorry for being really vacant on the blog the past month, but my job has just simply required of me to be there and not here. As much as I love blogging, it's a luxury and the first thing that needs to go if I am pressed on time. Besides that, I've also travelled this month, which also didn't help in terms of having extra time. I went to Cannes for 5 days and it was absolutely fantastic! Long-time readers will know I go there quite frequently, and also used to live in Nice, so it's a place I know well. For my favourites this month I'll be sharing some absolute workhorses. The makeup especially, I've pretty much done the same look everyday all month, and I'm still not sick of it! Some of those products are featured this month, a long with just one skincare item and a perfume.
These aren't really all that new and exciting anymore, but as I've been using them a lot recently, and have been considering adding more to my "collection", I thought I'd write another "post-hype" review. I like to do these sometimes as it's very easy to get swept up in all the raves and hypes on blogs and youtube, but then it's really after that's all passed you find out how you really feel about a product.
The empties I have to show for the month of August are quite impressive, if I can say so myself! There's quite a lot of products I've been trying to use up, or simply have been using, for a long time. I've also used up quite a few makeup items, which is always the most exciting of all!
After having almost the whole of July off work, August meant going back to work for me, and you'll notice a theme through this post of focusing on office-friendly items. The weather has been still nice here, but we had a week with all rain, giving a nice preview of what's to come. I personally love the fall and colder weather, so I quite loved getting my candles back out and making big pots of tea. Makeup-wise I haven't quite started wearing the darker fall colours yet. I am still doing the whole summery light and natural thing, but I am excited to get the vampy lip colours out soon. For now, here are my August favourites with a nice mix of summer and fall-esque things!
I’ve read and seen raves about the Armani Eye Tints since they were released a few years back, but for some unknown reason never ended up actually trying any of them. After reading another wave of great reviews for these lately, with the release of the new matte eye tints, I decided it was finally time to see what all the fuss was about.
After trying my first ever eye serum - Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair Eye, I was instantly hooked. The difference was amazing and I re-purchased it for years. It was only after finishing my latest bottle I decided I wanted to try something else, if nothing else just to have something to compare the Estée Lauder one to.
