September Product of the Month – Lengthening Mascara

Lengthening Mascara

I don’t know about you, but over the last few years I have been very concerned about the make-up I wear as well as the skincare I put on my body.  Whilst Neal’s Yard no longer do a range of make-up they did keep this, their most popular product and I am so glad they did!

I have been using it now for a couple of years and would not change.  One coat gives a lovely daytime coverage or leave it to dry before adding a second coat and it gives the perfect extra coverage for evening eyes.

It’s the only mascara I’ve tried that doesn’t hurt my sensitive eyes or damage my eyelashes and above all it smells of CHOCOLATE!  Seriously, it does and that comes from one of the main ingredients Carnauba wax.  Here is what Neal’s Yard have to say about it.

July product of the month – Beauty Sleep Concentrate

People often ask me which is my favourite Neal’s Yard product and that’s a very difficult one to answer.  You see it changes with the season or when I try something new or when I rediscover something I haven’t used for a while.

I should, however, be able to narrow it down to just one product a month!  This product will be available to test in my treatment room, so please ask if you’re having a treatment and I’ll also be doing a quick review in my monthly newsletter and a slightly longer one here on my blog.

With shorter nights during the summer, every moment of sleep counts and this little beauty (no pun intended) is a double hit.

The blend of ylang ylang, orange, clary sage and patchouli oils within help evoke a feeling of peace and well-being.  The aromatherapy of these oils creates space in the mind which allows for a restful and restorative nights sleep.

The light, serum-like moisturiser contains narcissus bulb and grapeseed oil which naturally help to lock moisture into the skin without leaving a heavy or greasy feeling.  You can read more about it on the Neal’s Yard website here.

Apply 2-4 pumps after your evening cleansing routine (whatever that may be) and you can use after a serum or just on it’s own.  I find that at this time of year two pumps is sufficient to cover the face and leave my skin fresh and hydrated in the morning.  Don’t forget to hold your hands up to your face after you’ve applied it and breath in slowly and deeply to get the maximum effect of the aromatherapy benefits.

I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas about the products I feature so please feel free to leave comments below, but I’d also love to hear about your favourites so do get in touch and if you send a photo then I may feature it and send you a little thank you present.
