Elemis Skincare Launch Event

Hello Beauties,

Today I will talk about a nice event I was invited, for the New outlet that has opened of the UK skincare brand called Elemis. I honestly, didn’t know about the brand until now but it was definitely a nice discovery.

Elemis is known to be a very high-end brand which focus combining the latest science, nature and aromatics. It has been known to sell mostly around crew-ships, spa’s and a beauty salons. Another fun fact that is that most of their products have Padina Pavonica which is a type of Algae found in the Mediterranean sea, very close to our lovely Island of Malta.  This Algea is found to have effective anti-ageing benefits, as it moisturizes and helps the elasticity and firmness of the skin.

At the Event we got to test out the products and even got a nice hand massage using their lovely Frangipani Manoi Salt exfoliator and the same range of body lotion. Getting that hand massage was the hype of my day, the scrub smelled delicious and the massage was utterly relaxing and it left my hands feeling very soft.

The products have a really elegant packaging and the texture of each product felt amazing. Having tried a variety of skin care over the years, I could feel the richness of each product. The brand itself is clearly targeted towards older women, that want to take more care of their skin and are willing to spend a little more money to look and feel great.

Anatomicals – Exclusive Pre-Launch in Malta

Listen up men and women, Anatomicals are available in Malta :).If you aren’t familiar with this brand, you are about to be. I honestly wasn’t familiar with them until last month but since I saw these products, I couldn’t wait to try them out. Anatomicals consist of a range of skin care products from soaps to facial creams for men and women. What struck me the most is their colorful packaging, and wicked sense of humor. Each product has a funny name and a tag-line which will definitely put a smile on your face.

Anatomicals

You can’t help but notice, that these products sell for a very cheap price. I haven’t seen any skin care products this cheap anywhere.They currently sell at Asos, Tesco and various drugstores in the UK and are also massive hit in Germany. But the best thing is, that now they are available to everyone in Malta and even internationally thanks to a new website called Anatomicals which you can check out here. This website is run by a friend of mine which also has another successful website with products for Men, called Men in Malta. So do check them out.

MeninMalta

I always make sure to research about every products brands, and from what I read people love these products because they are good and inexpensive. The words “Cheap” and “Good”, ring happy bells to us beauty addicts. The awesome thing is I get to try these products first hand :), and once I have truly tested them out, I will give you a more detailed review. All I can say for now is they smell very nice, and I can’t wait to pamper myself with these products. I think they are also a great Idea to give as a birthday present, or maybe stock up for Christmas gifts.

I had a chat with the founder of Anatomicals website in Malta and got to know more about this cool brand. Check them out:

How where you introduced to the brand?

Well it was by chance really I came across their products while I was doing some research online for my other store Men in Malta. Their style of branding caught my eye immediately.  And I could not resist, the sometimes ‘rude’ wording on the backside of the product. I first bought some of their products as testers and I was impressed even more when they arrived. You might as well say it was love at first sight. Despite the fact that they were inexpensive they still delivered to my standards. From there onwards I decided to share these great products with all the cool people in Malta.

What drove you, to start selling them in Malta?

Apart from what I mentioned before, the main reason was that there are so many boring and unappealing products out there, that these are a breath of fresh Air in such a saturated market.  What makes these products unique from the other products in the market is that they are targeted to those that have a cool and wild attitude. So be part of our WILD team one and join our facebook page 🙂

What product do you use a lot?

As a good honorable man that I am, I generally keep a very moderate grooming lifestyle. This consists of a face wash routine, a good scrubbing every 3-4 days and some very basic use of oil control moisturizer. Since these last 9 months I can say that i have constantly been using the memorable daily face wash which is a unisex kind. I made vast use of the man range funnily named manatomicals. In fact I have become quite addicted to their body wash products for men. So good and manly. Another main product was the headache balm which is surely my best friend on bad days. It reduces my ‘throbbing headaches’ to bits which is also great also for hangovers. I am also addicted to the peachy shampoo and most of the hand washes available.

What is the product that you would suggest women to buy?

Well limiting this to one is impossible.. as yet I have not received a negative remark from any woman as they represent a perfect price vs more than average quality for such product. I could easily recommend all the great lip balms and the hottle tottie range.

What is the product you would suggest men to buy?

If you’re a guy like me than I would highly recommend all of the manatomicals range.

So what are you waiting for, go and check these product out on www.anatomicals.com.mt. If you are spending over €20 you get free delivery in Malta and Gozo, so what are you waiting for? 😛

Have you tried any of their products yet ? If so would love to read your comments down below 🙂

M.A.C Pro Longwear Concealer

Hey guys,

Sorry been MIA lately but i has on of the busiest weekends. It has also been a bit crazy here in Malta with the Election going on but I am back to normal now. So I thought I should review another great product from Mac.

DSC00784

I got the Pro Longwear Concealer because I have heard great reviews about the product so I thought I should check what is all the buzz about. I got in NC42 for some crazy reason because it is a bit darker than my skin however it works well if I blend it out with some other lighter colored concealer or foundation. Like any of my other reviews, I will mention the Pro’s and Con’s of the product, so let’s get started :

DSC00786

Pros:

  1. It is lightweight and Pigmented 
  2. It really lasts for a long time
  3. If you choose the right colour for your skin it will blend perfectly because I can feel it with the liquid it self.
  4. Price is Ok for £14.50 as It would probably last for a long time

Cons :

  1. The pump dispenses too much product – you can never press it halfway its either a full pump or nothing – I sometimes mix the excess product with my moisturizer for a quick tinted moisturizer
Swatched

Swatched

Overall I am impressed with the staying power of the concealer. I will definitely repurchase it again and hopefully next time with the right skin tone. If you have a M.A.C store next to you, you should definitely purchase it, make sure you find the right skin tone.

That is all for now, keep posted for more

Lidl – skin care – Cien/Iseree

Before I start reviewing my next products, I want to say thank you for your support and for following my blog. It is really overwhelming to have about 44 followers in just there 2 months that I have started this blog. Thank you

So about a 2 month ago I went to the Lidl store and because I was still in between jobs I was financially a mess, so I bought these cheap skin care products. Lidl is basically a convenient store which you find in most European countries.

DSC00791My favorite are the moisturizing creams. The pink one is to protect your skin for 24hrs and the blue one is a simple daily moisturizer.  I honestly thought they would make my skin dry like most of the other cheap moisturizers you find, but they really didn’t. Both of them left my skin feeling silky and smooth throughout the day. So if you need a cream that keeps your face hydrated and moisturized, and you cannot afford and high brands, I would recommend it. They only cost about 3 euros each which is definitely worth the price and they both smell great. I also like a lot their sleek packaging.DSC00793

I also got an eye cream to moisturize and protect around the eyes. It is quite a good product very similar to the other moisturizers and costs around 1.50 euros if I remember well.

DSC00799

I also got a cheap nail remover that comes in a nice packaging. I love the pump of the packaging which makes it easier to apply. You just have to pump and it will give you a calculated amount of product.

Finally I got also a toner which you can see in the first photo. I honestly I am not a big fan without most toners have a lot of alcohol in them and I don’t think it is healthy for the skin to absorb a lot of alcohol.

That’s all for now, keep posted for more and thanks for following
