Omorovicza treatments build on Hungarian tradition; all Omorovicza products used incorporate Mineral Cosmetology™, Omorovicza’s patented 3 level mineral delivery system.

The treatment begins with thorough double cleansing and steam to the face and décolleté to prepare the skin for extraction followed by the application of a gentle yet rejuvenating Mineral-rich Hungarian Moor mud mask to draw out impurities and nourish the skin.

At the heart of the facial is a is a memorable and luxurious skin plumping massage, unique to Omorovicza, which enhances the effect of the hyaluronic filling sphères which make their way into the epidermis erasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin is left visibly toned, lifted, cleansed and moisturised.

Anti-aging Guru and the ever so popular Dr Perricone wows us all with yet another amazing collection. The ‘Super’ range is an anti-aging line for woman under 30!! Two words… HELL YES!!

Ok.. so im only 24, some of you would consider me still a baby.. however I don’t! It’s not like im 18 and do not have to worry about my skin. I would much rather take the necessary steps and ensure my skin is in perfect condition and that I am using the best products for my skin so future damage can be less of a problem.

The whole Super range uses anti-oxidant rich nutrients found in foods like blueberries and acai berry, not to mention the patented science which fights early aging in its tracks.  I have been using the 3 min facial for a few weeks now and I can honestly say im really impressed, it delivers intense hydration whilst renewing your skin leaving it with the most amazing glow.  The 3 min facial is made with ginger, this golden root stimulates the skin for a quick boost of vitality and radiance. My skin always looks sexy in 3 mins flat!!

The mask is formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan.

Another plus is the price range, it’s a lot cheaper than Perricone’s anti ageing products for older more mature woman, as we all know, Perricone products are amazing but do come with a hefty price tag, to hear that the Super range is at a quite reasonably low price is an amazing selling point. I will for sure be trying out more of the range so I can bring you some great reviews. It’s a range to watch!!!!

As the super range is such a new release I am not too sure on the UK selling price of the 3 min facial, however I know it is roughly around $50. Please visit www.perriconemd.co.uk for further info!

REN have created a fabulous range to combat blemished problem skin! Clear Calm 3 promotes  Clearer, calmer and healthier skin with effects that last.

I went along to the blogger event last week and have to say I was more than amused with Rob, one of the co-founders of REN skincare! His rather Jovial and cooky personality had all us bloggers in stitches… and his poem reading….. WELL!!! 

What can you expect from the range? Have a nose below and find out.

Clear Calm 3 Anti-Blemish Day Fluid £24 50ml

This light fluid moisturiser helps to combat against daily break outs. Leave skin feeling calm, fresh and above all soothed. Skin will be less oily and more mattified! antibacterial ingredients work in harmony with the skin to help fight congestion and oxidative damage.

Clear Calm 3 Anti-Blemish Clay Cleanser £18

REN bring us this very unusual Clay Cleanser… first ive ever heard of clay being used as a main ingredient in a cleanser, however, a genius idea. As well all know, clay is very well known for its healing and un-clogging properties. The cleanser throughly cleans and purifies skin whilst also providing gentle exfoliation, this in turn helps to unclog the skin whilst the anti-bacterial ingredients leave the skin feeling soothe and calm. I have handed this yummy cleanser to my hubby who has suffered with problem skin in the past and currently has combination/oily skin. I noticed the difference the first time he used this, his skin looked clean, fresh and the oil level were noticeably low!!

Clear Calm 3 Anti-Blemish Night Serum £20

This serum is design to re-hydrate the skin while you get your beauty sleep. This magic night treatment helps diminish signs of pigmented scars and leaves the skin feeling comforted and hydrated. Also helps to reduce redness.

Clear Calm 3 Anti-Blemsish Treatment Mask £28

This Treatment mask is said to leave your skin clear, calm and even-toned. This special formulation will reduce blemishes, exfoliate and decongest pores. Its antimicrobial action combats the spreading of bacteria and helps to keep redness to a minimum. It also lightens pigmentation scars.

Great thing about this range is that you can also use it on hormonal skin, ladies if it’s that time of the month and your skin is misbehaving try using the treatment mask a little pick me up.

REN skincare is available to buy at Liberty, Selfridges and online at www.renskincare.com Also be sure to check out the amazing REN Christmas Gift sets that are available.

This spa package includes a foot soak, paraffin wax hand treatment, Hot stone back massage, Aromatherapy facial plus a selection of cakes and drinks. We think this is a good idea Wagner and we won’t tell Mary its all for just £80!

Amie Skincare was created by Ex Estee Lauder Marketing Executive, Fiona Parkhouse. Fiona was inspired by her daughters struggle to find gentle but affective and affordable products for her teenage skin.

I have been using the Amie range on and off for the last month or so, I get such a back log and many request to test out products, so please bare with me :). Heres what I thought of the range:

Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask- Formulated with white clay which helps to draw out deep-set impurities , control oil and blemishes, this fruity smelling mask really is a treat!! Active ingredients include Organic Peppermint, Lime Butter and Natural Zinc Oxide. I use this mask at least twice a week. It smells like heaven (a smell that reminds me of Lime starburst sweets) the mask is very cooling almost icey, being a clay mask this mask does dry, but doesn’t completely dry out like many other masks. Leave on for 10-15 mins and then rinse off with warm water, your skin is left clean, plump and silky smooth :).  RRP £4.95

Amie Bright Eyes Very Gentle Eye Make-up Remover- 100% oil free this gentle makeup remover removes even the toughest of eye makeup and mascara. Key ingredients include Meadow Flower and Chamomile to soothe and decongest, Grape Water to calm and cleanse and cooling cucumber to hydrate, soften and refresh. I like to apply this to two pieces of cotton pads and allow it to sit on the eyes for around 30 secs, this really allows the makeup to be melted but also provides a nice cooling mask for tired eyes. RRP £4.75

Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash- A delicate morning face wash which doesn’t leave your skin dry and stripped like most products. Morning Clear’s soap free formula workS in harmony with skin, not against it. Key ingredients include: Mayblossom known for its anti-bacterial action, Elderflower which helps to purify and decongest pores and Orange Blossom to control sebum production. This face wash is refreshing and does the job, your skin feels awake and clean!! RRP- £4.95

Amie Morning Dew Matte-finish Moisturiser- A matte moisturiser which leave skin hydrated and shine free. Key ingredients include: Organic Rosehip  to moisturise, Bilberry for Sebum control and Orange Blossom to clarify and control oily skin. Great moisturiser for oily skin types. A little goes a long way as with oily skin you do not need to use too much. RRP £4.95

Amie New Leaf Exfoliating Polish-  A moiturising but gentle face exfoliator which contains Bamboo beads and Jojoba Beads that gently cleanse deep into the pores whist smoothing away the dead skin cells left on the surface. Say hello to a non dull complexion with this amazing uplifting exfoliator. Packed with a moisturiser so it doesn’t dry out the skin. Key ingredients include: Mango seed and Cocoa seed which softens and moisturises the skin and Orange Blossom to clarify and control oily and congested skin. I recommend to use this product at least twice a week to see the maximum benefits. Apply on damp skin using gentle circular movements. RRP £4.75

The Amie skincare range is a brilliant range which uses skin friendly ingredients. It’s an amazing range for young skin and an easy range for those wanting to maintain healthy skin. I would recommend that all mothers buy this range for their teenagers, the price is very reasonable for the quality you receive.

Please do let me know if you test out the range, I would love feedback on how you got on. If you are already a user of the brand let me know your thoughts. 😉

Amie skincare is available to buy at John Lewis, Waitrose, Superdrugs and Boots. Also available at www.amieskincare.com
