Timeless Truth A Face Mask With a Difference

So the first product I tried from the Antonia Mariconda How To Be Your Own PR Workshop goody bags is the Timeless Truth Bio-Cellulose Apple Stem Cell Collagen Mask. A pure Beauty Awards Silver Award Winner, I was really excited to test and review this indulgent mask…until I realised the highly attractive pictures I’m going to have to share with you all for the full blog experience!!

The masks come in individual packets and the minute I tear the top off mine the smell of fresh apples hits me, gloriously crisp and fresh. You remove the meshy protectors either side of the mask and then begin to position from chin up. I did find it a little tricky but none the less a little repositioning and its comfortably in place all be it a little bumpy…

Note the excess rolled under my eyes actually goes over your eyes which is really cooling and something you don’t normally see with a mask I just couldn’t take a pic!

The Product Info
⭐Bio-Cellulose Mask Range – ultimate state of the anti-ageing skincare.
⭐Bio-Cellulose is a nano scopic fibre luxury mask, which for the wearer means it matches super close with the human body and can get deeper into the skin without blocking or making it feel suffocated.
⭐Apple Stem Cells work similarly to human skin cells which means they help repair any damaged tissue whilst stimulating and nourishing the skin.
⭐Marine Collagen -Reduces dehydration, promoting elasticity and a more youthful supple appearance. ⭐

My Thoughts
Well my 7 year old said “Mummy you look freaky” and my other half once he had stopped laughing quickly got his phone out to take a pic! For me the mask was a little tricky and as a therapist I think it would be a lot more enjoyable in a salon experience and having someone apply it for you whilst your laying down and nicely relaxed. I however was sat in front of a mirror with my son laughing, wearing a fleecey lounging jumper, trying to apply it myself with as few bumps as possible.

Once on it felt quenching, fresh and firmly in place, once removed and the excess rubbed in there was a noticeable difference, even to the point I ran to the other half after he had laughed at me and proudly said “Now feel my face”. He too could see a difference and all of a sudden took an interest in what I’d actually been using. My skin and complexion also looked brighter and more radiant.

I did notice a slight break out the next day but it’s been 2 weeks since my last face mask and having the time to pamper myself, so it’s probably to be expected. My skin does still feel super hydrated though.

I’ve been using the excess serum in the sachet (that I had wrapped & placed in the fridge) to massage in my hands and cuticles as I sit and watch TV. The coldness where it’s been in the fridge makes it feel even more crisp and fresh, now my hands are all pampered and smooth too.

The masks are available to purchase from The Beauty Mask website this particular one is £7.90 there is a whole range available and I think it’s definitely worth knowing what your skin needs before picking one for you. I am undecided on what one to try next either Herbal Rejuvenation Immortelle Mask or The Orchid Extract Replenishing Mask, my skin is tired the baby is teething and I’ve had early starts a lot the last few weeks so it’s all showing in my skin.

My 2 Most Used Products from Antonia Maricondas Build A Beauty Blog Goody Bags!

Check me out two posts already on a Monday morning!  The Monday Morning Motivation is obviously working!

I loved all over everything about Antonia Maricondas Build A Beauty Blog workshop, you can read about it here. The goody bags were jam packed we were well and truly spoilt! I’ve been working my way through all the products whilst settling back into work after maternity leave, but just wanted to share the two products I have used most so far.

Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Creme

What it says on the bottle; Soap Free formula, dissolves make up and impurities, lightly hydrates soothes and conditions.

And it does do all of that, with cotton pads it removes all my layers of make up and daily life plus whatever Freddie (the baby) throws at me! I’m lazy though I want something that does it all and as I found out before I read the packaging YOU CANT USE THIS ON YOUR EYES so me scrubbing away at my panda eyes resulted in 30 seconds of blurred vision, 😂 that will teach me!

What I love about this though it’s a product that says suitable for sensitive skin and it actually is suitable for MY  sensitive skin! I have to be so careful I can normally guess by smell or first contact if a product is going to react on my skin, this cleansing creme glides on, no annoying fragrance, leaves my Skin refreshed and hydrated.

How Much £29.50
Where To Purchase

Rajeunir Moisture Serum

This smooth silky serum slides over the skin and leaves a moisturised barrier feeling to the skin all day.

I liked this product immediately, it promised to save me time as it delivers the benefits of my serum, moisturiser, eye cream, night cream and primer all rolled into one, It balances skin during hormonal changes – something my skin hates, and has the magnificent 7 ingredients you can read all about on their website here.

But then … I fell in love with it after a few days of not wearing make up! I REPEAT NOT WEARING MAKE UP!! This is a big deal because normally when I don’t wear make up I get a sympathising look from a mum in the playground who tilts her head towards me and sympathetically says “are you ok?” or I have a reliable best mate who tells me when I look like shit!  For two of the three days last week I Didn’t Wear make up the only products I used are the two I’m blogging about and guess what …I looked alright. (The third day not so much I cried a lot so had red face puffy eyes…attractive!)

How Much £42.00
Where To Purchase www.Rajeunir.co.uk

I have also used both these products with clients in one to ones, consultations and photoshoots. It’s nice having products you can go straight to knowing that will meet most clients needs and everyone I used them on love the ease of products and the results.

Have you tried withering these products? Or maybe there is something else from Exuviance or Rejeunir you would recommend, I’d love to hear more in the comments below.

A WEEK TO GO Sweet Cheeks October Pamper & Shop IM EXCITED!!!

Just a week until the next event I start to get that butterfly feeling, I used to think it was nerves and fear but I’ve decided now to embrace it as excitement! Simply because when I worry it always turns out I was worrying for no reason and they end up being totally awesome, amazing evenings.

The nights are filled with traders I love to support and work alongside and include such a diverse list of therapists and stalls to shop! Some of the stalls you can browse include children’s clothes to ladies clothes, accessories, jewellery & handbags, home ware, handmade gifts, cards, teddies & plaques, candles & warmers, chocolates & cakes, beauty products, health & fitness. Then the therapists offer treatments at discounted rates that include hot stones, massage, reiki, Indian head massage, reflexology, gel nails, mini manicures, brow waxing and much more. Plus they are all really generous with their affle prizes, next week we are raising money for DGS Mind, click here to read my blog on why!

The gorgeous people attending help make the atmosphere, everyone is so chatty and friendly amongst themselves and with traders, and they all continue to return and bring friends, I’m so grateful they are all so supportive of the events.

With each one they get bigger, the stalls, the amount of people attending, the treatments, the prizes, the gifts! Ahh it’s crazy fun I’d love for you to share with someone local to Gravesend who would love an event like this, and if you can come BRILLIANT! The feedback from the last event was superb but I aim to get better every time.

Planning a ladies indulgence evening, lucky I work from stress

Well not stress just call it pressure, I like working like this and whilst I’m excited about the upcoming event in under 3 weeks now is also the point in which my nerves kick in.

Tommorow I’ll be putting up posters locally and trying to spread the word to local shops etc as much as I can, I also be ringing all of the 30plus stalls involved to get attempt to get them all together for a pre meet the week before. That’s what I love about my events; all the companies that are exhibiting are small businesses, working mums, sole traders, and small boutiques that when you put us in a room with tea or wine (depending on the time of day) not only do we brainstorm some fabulous business ideas but we also learn ways we can work together and support each other.

I’ll be working through my lists of stalls, local shops to put posters up, putting together a ticket list that I’ll be delivering by the end of the week and thinking of ways to make the event unique or special.

I always feel with any business it is important to share with people your reasoning, your why, well here is my reason I love to host these luxurious indulgence events

“as a beauty therapist I was attending a lot of fabulous pamper evening at schools, the businesses involved were always fairly unique, the mums showed up in clusters of playground mafia in support and my services and items were always very popular. There was one thing that I always noticed though, the women attending were only ever directly involved either through children or job role to the school. Locals didn’t turn up, people didn’t randomly come along, I can only presume this was through fear of being noticed as an outcast from any playground “click”.
So I decided to do something about this, I wanted events any woman could invite her whole group of friends along to, a real girls night out without the “night out out” price tag (anyone who has seen Micky Flannagan will know what out out means if not you should so go on YouTube now!)
I set out a plan, I found venues, I put on fabulous nights. Each night I got feedback from stalls and attendees and this only inspired me to go further as word spreads, I’m able to help support more businesses in local areas, I’m able to give more women an affordable, luxurious, pampering night out filed with all the things we love beauty, clothes, Jewllery, stylists, sweets, home items and so much more”

Writing my why for you all has made me smile and once again very excited about the upcoming event, I look forward to sharing photos and blogging all about it for you.

For now though readers I need your help!!!
Post a comment below and help me find fantabulous items that are affordable so I can fill 100 goody bags for the event, I can only afford to do these through local businesses sponsoring so try to think luxury on a budget for me.
