Brand Focus - Deciem

For those of you who haven't heard of DECIEM , they are a boutique and exciting umbrella of many amazing beauty brands. Products such as Fountain, Grow Gorgeous, Hand Chemistry and Inhibitif to name just a few. For me Deciem was the first brand to give me a big break in the blogging world with Inhibitif, a product that I am still using today and it is just as good now as it was to begin with and a post which is my most popular with almost 100,000 hits.

It wasn't until I started using some of these products that I truly understood what ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid did because it is quite complex to explain.  What Deciem have done, is take the science and make it easier to understand, not just what it is, but what it is designed to do and in doing so they have created some amazing products which I couldn't be without.

I am yet to try a product from Deciem and not love it straight away and I thought a post showing some of those products that I love, which you might not have heard of or ever come across would be a good introduction to the brand.  There are full reviews coming on each of them, so this is just a brief insight.

Hylamide is the newest product by Deciem that I have been using. Described as being "Clinically-advanced serum for multi-depth rehydration, visible plumping and texture regularity". Give me a product with a pipette and I am going to be excited by it.  As a serum, this product aims to work on:

  • Surface hydration
  • Below surface hydration
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Dynamic lines
  • Sagginess
  • Textural irregularities

The idea is that you apply it both morning and evening and you should begin to notice changes within 10 days!

Grow Gorgeous is all about the health of your hair and the three products I have been using are - Back to the Roots, Cleansing Conditioner and Overnight to Gorgeous Hair Masque.
  • Cleansing Conditioner - It is free of sulphate and parabens and is designed to replace the need for separate shampoo and conditioner to leave hair looking clean, healthy, thick and lustrous. It works to rebalance the scalp and restore hair to flourish and realise its full visible potential
  • Back to the Roots - This is a 10 minute scalp masque with vitamins, caffeine and low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid. I absolutely love how cooling it is once applied and it is a great pick me up for hair when it just feels yucky and in need of a treat.
  • Overnight Masque - To be applied whilst you sleep, a combination of high- and low-molecular weight forms of hyaluronic acid, purified mushroom and Amazonian açaí and palm oils work hard to visibly hydrate, strengthen and smooth your hair . Now this masque I adore and use at least once a month.

Hand Chemistry - One of my all time favourite handcreams, Hand Chemisty is made by Deciem and you can read about it right here. Within the Hand Chemistry range is a whole host of products which are designed for the hands, body and feet.
  • Heel Chemistry - Not just for feet but also hands, specifically those which are dry and cracked. It is designed to repair the skin rather than remove/make it peel by hydrating the cracked skin whilst rebalancing below-surface hydration.
  • Hyaluronic Concentrate - Just the world Hyaluronic and I get excited. My skin loves it in all forms. This product is again for the hands and body. I use this straight after being in the shower or bath and it absorbs into the skin incredibly quickly leaving behind incredibly moisturised skin which is soft to the touch.
  • Hyaluronic Body Mist - I absolutely love this and it is my second bottle. It is a light refreshing mist which is actually a non-aerosol, yep mind blown! The mist is really really fine and as soon as it settles on the skin, it disappears and leaves my skin feeling really hydrated.

Each of these products has a full review coming up on my blog over the next few weeks, so look out for them.  In the meantime, you can find all of these products in Boots and read more about them HERE.

Look Fantastic November Beauty Box

Today see's the LookFantastic November Beauty Box on my blog and I have to say it is pretty fantastic yet again. For £15 you are sent a great selection of handpicked, must have beauty fixes wrapped in a beautifully presented box and delivered straight to your door. The beauty box will always include a minimum of six products and will offer a selection of skin, hair, cosmetic and body products, catering to every kind of beauty lover. I have had both the September and October boxes and I was really excited about getting my hands on the November box and I wasn't disappointed.

The first item in the box which I was chuffed with is the HAND CHEMISTRY Intense Youth Complex Hand Cream, 30 mls. (Full size 100ml for £18.99) As far as I am concerned this is the best hand cream I have ever used and having just run out, I am glad I already have another one to use, not that I am ever short of hand cream, but you can never have too many.

Next is some make-up and this time it is the New CID i - crayon. Full Size £14.00 and I have shade Strawberry Souffle which is not perhaps a shade I would ever buy but I am still looking for my perfect red and I am going to give this a go. The crayon is a multi-use one being both a lip and cheek tint.

Then we have the Monu Recovery Balm. 30 ml (Full size 50ml. £22.50). I have tried quite a few Monu products over time and have always been impressed with them, this is one I havent tried so I am looking forward to giving it a go. Said to be a soothing balm for sensitised and stress skin. What I love is that you can apply it at night before going to bed and wake up with super smooth skin in the morning. So this I am really looking forward to trying.

Nuxe are next with their NUXE Nuxellence Jeunesse (Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid. 15ml (Full size 50 ml, £47.50) when I first looked at it, I have to admit, I wasn't too sure what it was, so I Googled it to find that it is an anti-ageing fluid that claims to improve the skins feel and texture and give it a big boost of radiance.  I have only used a few Nuxe products, so I am looking forward to trying it.

The next product is the Eve Lom Cleanser. 30ml (Full size 100ml. £55.00). I have had a really small trial pot of this before which didn't have much in it, so I am chuffed I have a decent sized tub to try. Said to be a multi-tasking marvel which removed every last trace of make-up, even waterproof mascara, it also decongests, tones and gently exfoliates the skin!

The final item in the box is the rather fabulous GLAMGLOW Youth Mud Face Mask. 15g. (Full size 50g. £49.99). I am a huge fan of this mask having had a sample and raved about it HERE and because I loved it so much, I am chuffed to be able to have more.

I absolutely love this box, I think it is fabulous, so juch so that I have already ordered the December box and cannot wait to get my hands on it.  For me this box goes from strength to strength and manages to impress me every time.

Have you tried a Lookfantastic box yet?  What do you think to this one, is there anything you really want to try?

Hand Chemistry - The hand cream that promises 10 years in 10 days!

Hand Chemistry from the makers of Inhibitif is descirbed and referred to as 'The hand cream that promises 10 years in 10 days' and I have some right now which I am going to put to the test.

It is described as follows:
"Concentrated multi- functional hand cream targets 8 signs of hand aging simultaneously. The extraordinary 19.5% active complex concentration visibly improves firmness, elasticity, density, evenness, brightness, texture, smoothness and hydration"

Designed to be used and applied to clean hands both in the morning and in the evening results should be visible in as little as 11 days with continued improvement for up to 2 months. Continue use to maintain results. Intended for use on hands and forearms only.

Tube Posters
This hand cream arrives in a rather fetching white and pink coloured box and inside is a matching tube.  Everything you need to know about this product can be found on the box and it includes a list of ingredients and you will see that it is tested on humans.

The cream itself is not too thick a consistency and is very easily absorbed into the skin where it leaves behind a lovely citrus scent and an immediate softness of the skin on your hands which lasts until you next apply the cream.  What I like about this cream is that it is designed to be used twice a day and not constantly, so once again, for me, I tend to use it as part of my morning and evening skin regime when I am washing my face and applying moisturising cream anyway, it is no extra hassle and I am really excited to see what the results will actually be like.  Below you will find a photograph of my hands before I started to use this hand cream and in 11 days time, I will report back on my findings and show another photo to see what the difference is.
