New In (ft Biore, Dermalogica, Revlon & more)

There's been some good stuff coming through my mailbox lately that I thought I would share some of the products I've been trying out.

This product isn't new to me, but Biore kindly sent me a few as a surprise in my mail and with them being one of my favourite skincare brands, I certainly wasn't disappointed to see more of these on my doorstep. I'm particularly a fan of these masks. If you're skin is feeling clogged and lifeless but you don't have a lot of time to spare, these masks are the go. As the name suggests, you only really have to pop them on for a minute or two. When you apply the product and massage it into your face, you'll feel it heat up (which can be a bit of an odd sensation at first). Continue to massage the product into the face for another minute or so, rinse, and you're good to go. The perfect little pick-me up for my busy gals out there.

This seems like a bit of a gimmick, but I've surprisingly come to really like these new eyeliners from Revlon. I think this type of product will either be a hit or miss with people, and it is something that can take a minute to get the hang off. I've haven't come across an eyeliner with a roller end like this before, and I have to say I don't completely hate it. The roller was a little tricky to use at first, but when you're using it almost daily like me, it doesn't take long to get the hang off. I was also really impressed with the formula of the liner. Something I struggle with when doing wing liner is how it fades and rubs off throughout the day. This liner however dries down so that when you want to remove it you pretty much have to peel it off. This formula means it sticks really well to the eye, though it can be a little prone to cracking. For something that I thought was going to be just a big gimmick I was pretty impressed and wouldn't knock back purchasing these again.

If you're looking to give your skin a bit of a Vitamin C injection, look no further than this serum from Dermalogica. You know I love a good serum, and this product will help to give you a brighter and firmer complexion and boost your skins' natural defences from everyday pollutants and sun damage (though you should always remember to pop on a little SPF before you head out the door each day to really give your skin some proper protection).

I think the most important thing to remember with products like these is that they are not a miracle worker. Depending on what you're targeting, how your skin and body reacts and works and a number of other things, these type of products can certainly help to reduce, in the case of this product, stubborn fat in areas. That said, attempting to use this only and not doing any sort of exercise or making other healthy changes to also target any such issues you may have will not do the trick. This product is designed to give you a little bit of a boost on top of the work you're already doing. This spray is best to apply either just before or just after you work out in areas of fat you're wanting to reduce. This product then aims to help increase the use of fatty acids to boost your energy levels as you workout or as your recover, particularly from the targeted areas, to help you shift those stubborn little pockets. I've tried some similar products like this before and I found they could heat up to a point that was a little uncomfortable and unpleasant, but I didn't find this happening with this product. I've applied both before and after exercise, just depending on whether or not I've left myself enough time beforehand to do so, but it absorbs really quickly so it's not hassle if you find yourself preferring to use it beforehand.

This also isn't the first time I've gotten the chance to give this serum ago. I actually previously talked about it in a blog post here. This serum has a whole range of B-Vitamins to help rebalance your skin and protect it from UV rays. It also helps to keep your skin hydrated by boosting your skins' immune response, which also goes a long way in giving a brighter complexion while tackling aging. When I first applied this, it felt a bit oily to me and I thought this was a product I wouldn't be able to use, but then I found it sunk into my skin so quickly and didn't leave me feeling oily at all. You don't need to use much of this and it leaves my skin feeling so nice and soft. I also love the scent of this product; it has a somewhat sweet, but not overly powerful, scent that makes me feel so lux.
