Can you believe I was on Buzzfeed last night, ranked number five in the top 10 Men that will teach you everything you need to know about makeup! I feel honoured and incredibly blessed.
Anyway, today we park makeup and talk Imedeen.
I found out today that Imedeen has actually been a global leader for internal skincare since 1991 (The year I was born!). So although internal skincare has been going since the day I entered the world, I feel like only recently we have started to see a huge increase around products that work from within.
Imedeen's range are designed to enhance your regular beauty regime, nourishing the deep layer of skin untouched by traditional creams and lotions.
Endorsed by scientists, dermatologists and industry expects - I had high expectations!
Imedeen Tan Optimizer is a sun preparation tablet, you're advised to take one tablet every day for 4 weeks and then throughout any sun exposure. The benefits? Vitamin C and E to protect skin from oxidative stress.
It's important to note, Imedeen do NOT replace the use of SPF so when taking the supplements its imperative that you continue it wear your sun protection as normal - you will not magically build up an immunity.
I wouldn't personally use this product again, but the only reason for that is I am not a huge sunworshipper anyway! As a kid, I could lie in the sun for hours.. but these days as a 'skincare freak', you'll often find me in the shade slapped in a heavy duty, high SPF cream!
UV rays account for 80% of all skin ageing.
Don't get me wrong, I love looking all golden and delicious but I can find that in a bottle of fake tan without the risks that come with baking yourself. Plus, sweating leads to clogged pores and unsightly spots. We all need some sun, however you'll get your vitamin D from incidental time spent outdoors, without burning.
To be fair to Imedeen they do advise you to stay Sun Smart by following these Golden Rules:
- Sunscreen of factor 15+ should always be used
- Make sure you never burn
- Aim to cover up with a t-shirt, hat and sunglasses
- Remember to take extra care with children
- Time in the shade from 11am – 3pm is a mustI
I do think this is a great product, if you are somebody that is going to spend your life sunbathing no matter what. Imedeen will help to give you that little boost of extra protection - so although it's not for me. I do see the benefits, and think its a genius idea to help the sun fanatics to stay that extra-bit safer.
Imedeen can be purchased from Superdrug and retails at £39.99.
Take care, and stay safe! x
Sweets that make you beautiful, now - wouldn't that be incredible!
German born company 'Beauty Sweeties' have launched a range of confectionary, the product range consists of fruit jellies, cream pralines, and crispy chocolate bars.
I tried the fruit jelly hearts and the fruit jelly bears, and I have to say they are absolutely delicious and best of all they are fat free!
These sweets are made up of 20% fruit juice, and 6% fruit pieces. These sweets also contain ingredients usually found in skincare products, such as Coenzyme Q10, Aloe Vera, and Collagen.
Its certainly an interesting concept, a product that works from the inside out?
I do believe the ingredients in the sweets will benefit the skin, but honestly to really see a difference you'll need to change your whole diet as unfortunately the levels in each pack are not enough alone to magically give you 'perfect' skin.
I think if you already follow a healthy diet, these sweets would be the perfect little treat! They are very yummy, and if you already take care of your skin these are likely to give you an extra little boost of radiance that you would not find in a 'Snickers' bar!
Overall, they are a much healthier choice in comparison to the majority of your 'standard' well known sweets and chocolate bars.
I think they are a fun addition to the confectionary market!
Value for money 8/10
Each bag contains 125g worth of 'Beauty Sweeties', these can be picked up across Superdrug stores and online retailing at £2.99 per pack.
|With Makeup, I am able to create a second skin that gives me the confidence to hold my head up high!|
Just under a year ago I started recording video’s on YouTube, like most ‘Beauty’ channels I review all the latest cosmetic launches, however my channel is very different indeed - I review products from a Female AND MALE perspective.
Somehow our society decided that only women should wear makeup, however many Men feel the pressure to look good and simply meet beauty standards too.
We know sexism hurts women, but we don't talk as much about how sexism hurts men.
Why are Men supposed to be “reserved emotionally? We are all humans, we get anxiety and have body image issues too.
My YouTube channel quickly proved that there are thousands of Men wanting to improve their appearance, and why shouldn't they?
These Men each have their own and very personal reasons for wanting to wear makeup, from wanting to look great on their wedding day to impressing a hot date!
They come to me as they have no idea where to start and which products to use, often they are too scared to approach a beauty counter for advise through fear of being teased and laughed at.
I provide a safe haven whereby Men can talk about beauty without being judged!
The general consensus is that we want products that don't sit in our beard (if you’ve got a beard!), we want products that look incredibly natural on the skin, and we want to add shade and dimension to our faces without ever looking like a glitter-ball!
Today, I’m going to show you how to transform your problem skin, into flawless perfection every single day!
