We would all love to nail that no makeup – makeup look achieved with minimal action in small amounts of time!
I certainly do and this gorgeous @lumene invisible #instantglowbeautyserum is our current no1 go-to to achieve this effortlessly and in 0 time at all!
I wake up, cleanse and moisturise then reach for this new little bottle of wonders on my dressing table. It’s a semi translucent weightless serum – one single colour for all. It glides over your face from three little drops on each cheek – covering pores and blemishes in its wake! Veiling my skin and creating an awe inspiring glow… think of Ashley Graham, KatieJane Hughes or even and Alessandra Steinherr’s gorgeous faces! Plus when serums smell so good it’s a bonus too!
Packed full of Arctic Spring Water, Arctic Cloudberry Seed Extract and pearlescent pigments, the air-light formula hydrates, brightens and visibly perfects your skin’s natural radiance for a more even and luminous looking complexion. This is thanks to the benefits from within the ingredients – Cloudberry is naturally rich in vitamin C [which brightens and energises your skin… hello fresh face!] plus it’s packed with omega 3 and omega 6 – [boosting your skins natural protective barrier and boosting moisture… ByeBye wrinkles, hi fresh dewy glow!] and finally Vitamin E [protecting you from free radicals]… This alone is enough to make us want to buy more of it! The fact it gives us that no make-up makeup glow is just a bonus!

Beautiful ageless eyes…
Your eyes can be the giveaway to your age, so why not add the supercharged triple action No7 Lift & Luminate Eye Cream to your daily routine. Suitable for sensitive skin, this
NEW and improved blend of ingredients helps women achieve even better
anti-ageing results that really deliver, especially when using the products
together. (See our other post on the No7 Day 7 Night Cream range HERE)
Created especially for the delicate skin around the
eye, the No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Eye Cream delivers brighter,
younger looking eyes in just 2 weeks. With continued use, crow’s feet are
softened, the appearance of dark circles is reduced, and under eye puffiness is
less visible. After 8 weeks, 83% of women agreed their eyes looked brighter, in No7′s own tests!. Plus we think no matter your age you should start looking after your skin, to slow down the ageing process as of course we cannot prevent it! 🙂 We love it, and its certainly given our eyes a lease of life and we’re only 26!
The range has this selection of ingredients:
- Matrixyl 3000 PLUSTM – No7’s most effective anti-wrinkle technology is a powerful peptide
blend which helps restore more youthful looking skin
- Hyaluronic Acid – helps provide additional skin-firming
benefits through its powerful water retaining abilities, providing an extra
boost for the more advanced signs of ageing
- Hibiscus extract – from the seed of Hibiscus Abelmoschus, rich in peptides and amino acids, this active
ingredient helps support collagen production, making skin look and feel
smoother and firmer
containing Emblica (Indian gooseberry)
and Vitamin C. This works to help
rebalance melanin content in the skin, helping to provide a more even skin tone
and a fading of visible pigmentation

Day, Night and Eye Creams are available in Boots stores and on Boots.com
Look after your skin with No7
Over the years I’ve battled to make my skin better and healthier, and to be spot free. It certainly wasn’t an easy ride with the usual teenage hormones wreaking complete havoc. Plus being so fair over the years I’ve gone from a super pale baby to a heavily freckled face thanks to sun damage and general day to day exposure even on the cloudiest of days.
Your skin is one of your most vital organs, it protects you everyday so you should protect it too! Keeping it healthy, hydrated and moisturised will do you a favour and help prevent the ageing process showing too!
We got our hands on the No7 Lift and Luminate Collection from Boots, which helps with moisture levels but also claims to help out with evening out skin tone, firming and protecting us with UVA protection in the form of SPF 15 within the day cream.
You don’t need much of the day or night cream to cover your face and neck as a little bit goes a long way! Meaning your money goes far because you get more applications for that tiny amount!
No7 Lift and Luminate Day Cream, and Lift & Luminate night cream, £24.95 each available nationwide at Boots stores and online.
Right now too you can get these in the 3 for 2 deal! So don’t delay buy today!!
Dreaming of a light foundation…
We are forever dreaming of a foundation that matches this ever so pinky pale skin that we have forever lived with… and we seem to be getting closer to the actual match day by day!
We tried out Rouge Bunny Rouge Milk Aquaelle Liquid Foundation, £46.40 (53 Euros) a delightfully light gel foundation which sweeps on evenly, going far for only a little touch of liquid. Here we tried out their lightest shade, Coconut milk parfait – a milky-pale pink beige shade. Applied with the brands Aqua Primer,
£46.40 (53 Euros) which contains a plethora of active ingredients to aid cell tissue regeneration, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, provides intensive hydration, firming and smoothing; and it’s anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory! This is a miracle in a bottle, giving a fabulous canvas to apply foundation to!
Between the pair, the foundation stayed on all day, and felt ever so lightweight throughout. We found a little oxidisation occurring when we didn’t user a primer with our face oils though, but we just beat this with a good pre-cleanse and with this shade no blending near the forehead as it gets too dark for us! (Forehead is super pale!) But over all a fantastic foundation, that’s well worth the money!

Devoted to your liner? We try this for Spring!
Day in day out we wear liner, generally black, and we hope to get a good baby flick at the end… if this happens… Hooray!!! I’m sure like all of you – it doesn’t always happen that simply!
Now we usually don’t stray from black liner but we were really intrigued by Rouge Bunny Rouge and their Devotion Ink Quartz Eyeliner in ‘Tanzanite Essence’. This is a gorgeous bluey lavender shade alike the gemstone – Google it! Its rarer than a diamond and we’re obsessed!
This liner is metallic and has a shimmer – just like you’d get with a stone! The application is ever so easy with a sponge tipped wand and it glides straight on with no need for extra lining for colour depth! We’d love it to be waterproof, that’s our only wish for this – and for it to be available as an eyeshadow too!
It’s going to be out big wear for the spring. Pastel perfect and subtle (sort of) but perfect for day to day wear, meaning you can transform your day makeup to a nice evening smoky look maybe by creating an ombre liner (Tanzanite to black) into a blue smoked eye! *WHY DID’NT I THINK OF THIS BEFORE*
