Palmers Lip Balm Review

Hey my gorgeous preeners hope you are all well.
Today I have just a little review for you all on the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Balm. I normally wouldn’t be bothered with very dry lips and just use the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream off an on, but lately my lips have been so dry they have cracked a couple of times. I adore the eight hour cream but it is so expensive so I was on the hunt for something to use in between times.
I spied this lip balm in Sainsburys a couple weeks ago and at £2 I didn’t think I would love it, but wow was I wrong! This is so hydrating and doesn’t leave your lips greasy. It has Vitamin E in it to sooth lips also which I have been loving. I have just bought a second in Asda for just under £2 and I am keeping it in the fridge to keep cool on my lips. I have been using this every day then a Lush lip scrub twice and week and the eight hour cream twice a week and I am starting to see a real improvement in my lips.
If you follow me on twitter or facebook you will see I have been raving about this product!! I will definitely be stocking up and throwing a few in bags and drawers!
Have any of you tried it?
Have a fab day preeners, love to you all

Review of Cougar Beauty Bee Venom Day Cream

Hey my gorgeous preeners, hope your Friday is good!!!
When  Cougar Beauty Products recently got in touch asking me to try out their Bee Venom Day Cream, I was more than intrigued to say the least.  Bee Venom products are very popular at the moment, and for the past year or so I have seen numerous reports and reviews of how it can greatly help the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles due to its plumping effects. I don’t have a lot of wrinkles but I am all for a pre-emptive attack on them pesky lines to keep them at bay.
When I looked into the Bee Venom phenomenon the thing that really stood out to me was that the venom mimics the effect of a sting and aims to send blood and increased circulation to the skin and in turn helping the lines and wrinkles. Did anyone else wince when I said bee sting and face in the same sentence?  Bee venom is said to encourage natural cell regeneration and anything that helps regeneration gets me thinking! I thought why not give it a try as it was a brand and product I hadn’t tried before and I love supporting and trying new things.
I was sent a gorgeous yellow box with a sleek black bottle with a little pump to dispense the product, kudos to cougar beauty for this as we all know that having a pump makes it so much easier to distribute the product and also it makes it more hygienic.
I cleansed as normal and then as directed I used the day cream just like my normal moisturiser, it does recommend using a hot cloth directly before application as it opens the pores and lets the cream sink nicely in so your face gets maximum effect. I used one full and a little half pump and this was more than enough for my face. It has a very gentle scent which I loved as I am not that keen on scented products. It is lovely and lightweight and I felt my oily combination skin thanked me for that, my face and thick heavy products do not get on.
I have been using this as my day time moisturiser for just under 3 weeks now and although I wouldn’t say it hasn’t made a great difference in the moisture of my skin but what I have greatly noticed is that the bumpiness and redness on my forehead has reduced. My skin without a doubt feels plumper and smoother.  I have not had to use a primer under my foundation as this just makes my foundation stick all day, which is always a bonus in my eyes to not have to put more products on than necessary.
This cream is £24 to buy and for a good day time cream I think this is completely reasonable. There are other products in the bee venom range including a cleanser and toner at £10, facial mask at £14, a night cream at £29, and a venom serum at £34. You can also buy sets of the products, all details can be found here Cougar Beauty Skincare
Cougar Beauty also have a range of other items including, volcanic ash, snake and snail skincare. They also do a range of tanning products, cosmetics, bodycare and hair extensions. Without a doubt it is a store I will be looking closer at as I have my eye on a few of their products.
Overall I would say definitely give this product a try or if you don’t feel the venom is for you, there is plenty of other fab ranges which you could try.
Thanks to Cougar Beauty for asking me to review this item.
