Is Eyelash Tinting Worth The Hype?

Lockdown number three is in full swing and we’re guessing that by now, bread baking is off the table. Should you be peering at your eyelashes in the mirror and wondering whether or not to try an eyelash tint, read on. Here’s all the important info on eyelash tints. We have included two of the best ones in case you decide they’re worth the hype.

About

Eyelash tinting does have its advantages. It means one less thing to worry about fixing (particularly for those with light lashes). Professional, in-salon tinting only achieves results for the time of the growth cycle. This means that approximately every 5 weeks, you will need to redo them. A DIY job obviously provides more gentle ingredients (in case of error); thus, the results will be short-lived.

How Long Does Eyelash Tinting Take?

Including the reading of instructions, it will only take 15 minutes at most.

How Long Does It Last?

This is dependent on the product, but generally speaking, a DIY kit will last a month.

Is it Dangerous?

Not at all – unless you decide to dye your eyeball. No, seriously eyelash tints will not harm your lashes and are safe to use.

Pricey?

The cost for a professional tint can be anywhere between £15 – £40. A DIY tint may cost between £10 – £20. Yes, they don’t last as long, but you can usually get a few applications worths – so definitely more cost-effective.

Is Eyelash Tinting Worth the Hype?

Should you regularly have your eyelashes tinted, then a DIY kit is well worth the hype. There’s no doubt that tinting your eyelashes offer a fabulous definition. At a time when we’re only displaying our eyes, a tint will ensure your lashes look their best without having to reach for your mascara. This is especially handy if you have to be up and on a Zoom meeting the moment you wake up. However, not so worthwhile if you have a luxury mascara in your makeup bag and no scheduled meetings.

Should you decide to give a DIY eyelash tint a whirl, we recommend Eyelure’s Pro-Lash Dylash in Black, £8.98, www.amazon.co.uk

This kit takes only 5 minutes to apply and has enough formula for several applications. Certainly, a worthwhile buy!

The Weirdest Things People Have Woken Up With

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve woken up with?

There is nothing better than laughing in the face of adversity to reduce the impact of stressful times – and the weirder or more bizarre something is, the funnier it becomes. With this in mind, online hybrid mattress retailer, OTTY, conducted their own research. The mission was to pull back the covers on peoples’ strange experiences. Posting the question, “What’s the weirdest thing you have woken up with?” OTTY received a surge of crazy replies. Let’s take a look at some of the weirdest bedroom revelations.

1.Who Let the Dogs Out?

It is not unusual for the family pet to snuggle up on your bed – but what about waking up to find yourself cosied up to a stranger’s dog? This is exactly what happened to two respondents. One claimed that somehow, the dog was actually in his sleeping bag and he had no idea whose dog this was or how it got there.

2.Pheasant Life

The survey uncovered one man’s scary reality. The man from the Yorkshire/Humber region was startled (obvs.) when he awoke to a brace of pheasants sharing his bed. Okay…

3.The Old ‘Stealing the Traffic Cone’ Trick

Stealing a traffic cone in a drunken stupor seems to have become a rite of passage for UK youths – it’s THAT common. It’s no wonder, then, that this along with construction signs made their way onto the list (and into their beds). However, one man went above and beyond, somehow managing to bring home an actual traffic light, without being stopped! He then tucked it in with him for a cosy sleep!

4.A Solid Winner

The Scots are known for their wild nights of hardcore drinking – and this particular response well and truly cements this theory. A respondent from Scotland claims he woke up with his ‘shoes completely encased in concrete’. He must have lived fairly near to the construction site as he was able to return home and to his not-so-comfy slumber.

Conclusion

Review Of Kate Somerville Transformative Turnaround Firm & Brighten

Should you be a fan of beauty and transformative skincare, you may have heard of world-renowned skincare expert, Kate Somerville. Her exclusive clinic, the Skin Health Clinic, can be found in Hollywood. Due to Kate’s innovative and highly effective products and bespoke treatments, her popularity continues to soar. Now she has a long list of celebrity clients including Kate Hudson, Eva Mendes and Demi Moore.

Kate Somerville offers a range of fantastic products. Today we are reviewing her iconic and totally fabulous Transformative Turnaround Cream, Firm & Brighten.

About Kate Somerville’s Transformative Turnaround Cream, Firm & Brighten, £77 (50ml), www.katesomerville.co.uk

kate somerville transformative moisturiser
L A Beauty

Ever since its launch, this luxurious overnight moisturiser has been flying off the shelves. The best-selling cream contains two key skincare ingredients, retinol and vitamin C. These components are proven to offer an array of anti-aging and skin-nourishing abilities, both immediately and long-term.

The reason this is such a sought-after night moisturiser is due to its outstanding brightening, firming and regenerative properties – and the fact that it is a lazy girl’s dream. You simply need to apply the magical formula and go to sleep. The star ingredients get together to beautify your complexion whilst you are busy dreaming about Thor!

Retinol

Retinol is a vital anti-aging component, but it is important to use a good source. The Transformative Turnaround Cream is great for retinol newbies as it is unlikely to cause noticeable dryness. For people in their twenties, Kate Somerville’s advice is to apply the moisturiser 1-2 times per week. For thirty-somethings’ use 3 times per week, and so on. However, it is important to always listen to your skin. Should your complexion seem irritated, reduce accordingly.

Kate Somerville and her team combined a powerful blend of pure retinol within this moisturiser. The result is a faster cell turnover, reduction of discolouration/pigmentation. Furthermore, you will notice significantly fewer fine lines.

Vitamin C

Another superhero component, vitamin C, is shown to greatly brighten and smooth the skin. This amazing cream includes pure vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Provided in a stabilised clinical formulation, it delivers incredible firming and softening results. The outcome is a complexion of sheer radiance.

Hyaluronic Acid

Pretty much everyone is aware of the secret skincare weapon, hyaluronic acid. This is included due to its ability to lock in moisture; thus, achieving a firmer and plumper complexion.

Wild Gooseberry Extract

Credit: Kate Somerville

Wild gooseberry extract is overflowing with antioxidants, ensuring your skin is thoroughly protected from free radical damage. Furthermore, the incredible skin-soothing properties diminish redness and signs of sensitivity.

The scent of the moisturiser itself is all-empowering. Should you love oranges, this zesty aroma will be right up your street. As you apply the luxurious treatment you just know it is going to be something special – and you won’t be wrong!

Conclusion

We applied the cream twice per week for several weeks. During this time skin showed a noticeable improvement. The texture and overall appearance are notable.

This moisturiser is definitely worth the investment for those concerned with aging or discolouration. However, to continue experiencing great results, it should be incorporated into your night-time routine and used over time.

We love this overnight moisturiser. It is great for those new to retinol and for those who want simple, yet effective results without the faff!
