Perricone No Concealer Concealer

I was looking for a high quality concealer that also boasted some sort of treatment too, as well as an SPF. The price of this did make a little sceptical along with the skincare/makeup hybrid, as so many products that mix skincare and makeup often come out as a washy tint. So I was actually pleasantly surprised when I finally got this and it wasn't like my previous thoughts. It's quite a thick texture but still very creamy and hydrating. It gives a medium to full coverage depending on how much you apply, the lasting abilities are pretty impressive too I didn't notice it slide off my face till late on in the evening, it beat some products that I thought were great but this put them to shame. The coverage easily covers my dark circles from sleepless nights as well as being enough to cover any spots or blemishes I have too. 

The only downside for me would be the one shade suits all colour, fair to medium skin tones would be alright but I'm not sure how anyone darker than a deep medium would suit it. The colour has a slight peachy tone to it as well, hence it's ability to cover dark circles well. 

At £37.00 for 9ml it is a higher priced concealer to purchase but for me the anti-ageing eye treatment benefits mixed with the coverage it gives have made a recurrent purchase for me lately. So if you are looking for a better concealer that possess anti-ageing treatments, SPF and generally makes you look fresh then Dr Perricone No Concealer Concealer is one to pop on your Christmas List to Santa. You can purchase yours here!

Gatineau Floracil Gentle Eye Make-up Remover

For years I have searched for an eye make-up remover, that would get all my mascara etc off without feeling drying or too greasy, It was always the same one either was brilliant at removing the make-up but I was left with a horrible film coating my eye, that seemed like it wanted to stay forever. Or on the other hand my eyes felt lovely after but I would always notice that it didn't quite get it all off and I would have to use double, triple the amount of product to do the job right.

So after biting the bullet I went for Gatineau's Floracil Gentle Eye Make-up Remover, I'm slowly being introduced to Gatineau and so far I'm in love with the brand and this is no exception.

Gatineau Floracil Gentle Eye Make-up Remover  is my new hero product. The formula is refreshing and cooling, it is no longer a chore to remover my mascara it is refreshingly pleasant. Just place a cotton wool pad soaked in the Floracil and place it over your eye to soak for a couple of seconds and then you can gently remove all traces of your eye make-up. This non oily extremely effective in removing even the most stubborn of waterproof mascara's, without the need to rub. If you have sensitive eyes not to worry with Floracil is is formulated to the same pH as tears, which means no stinging, no irritation or puffiness. 

As an extra I like to give my eyes a boost using it as a treatment, I apply my night eye cream/serum then placing a cotton wool pad soaked in Floracil on each of my eyes, I let them sink in and tap in any excess afterwards. Leaving my eyes refreshed and brightened. 

At £17.50 for 200ml from FeelUnique it's a great product for the price and in fact I have 4 bottles stocked up so I won't run out any time soon.
