Dot & Key Vitamin C Concentrate Glow Reviving Serum Review

The serum comes in yellow plastic bottle with dropper. I love serums with droppers as you can control the amount you dispense each time. The serum is clear and quite thin in consistency. It smells nice and mild.

The serum has a water like formula that absorbs into the skin immediately leaving no sticks residue behind. I have used it continuously for two months and loved the brightening effect it leaves. Vitamin C is derived from kakadu plum with 12% concentration.

I used it everyday in the morning. Vitamin C is great for people who want brighter & glowing complexion. With regular use it also fades marks and blemishes. Vitamin C is also great for reducing lines and wrinkles. Dot & Key Vitamin C Concentrate has hyaluronic acid as well which is one of the most popular humectants and retains moisture in the skin.

My skin is quite dry and prone to dullness, Dot & Key Vitamin C Concentrate has kept it looking glowing and smooth. I had a few acne marks left on the sides of my cheeks and they have faded to a great extent. The key is to use it regularly without fail. This one bottle lasted me 2 months.

This is a vegan formula and free from parabens, sulphates, phthalates and other skin nasties.

Dot & Key Vitamin C Concentrate is priced at Rs 975, available online HERE 

Friday Treat H&M Loungey Hoodie

[affiliatelink] I really don’t like dressing gowns at all – I never, ever wear them although I have had several of them as gifts over the years that go off to Oxfam intermittently. I always feel a big strangled in them – they’re always so big, especially towelling robes and if you’re 5ft 3ins like me, invariably you’re swamped. They’re also too heavy! I have never found one that feels right. So, this hoodie knit from H&M is exactly the kind of thing that I like to wear over pjs instead of a robe.

H&M Sweater

It’s exactly the right kind of loose knit, sloppy style, down-time kind of top that says relax to me. It’s got some wool in it but I don’t think we can say it’s a wool sweater – I don’t mind that because you can just chuck it in the washing machine without worrying you’ll end up with a top to fit a mouse. It goes in sizes XXS to XXL and I think I’ll probably opt for L for the full sloppiness. It’s not available in store so I’m ordering this up this afternoon. The hoodie is £24.99 HERE.

Small Talk: Petitfee’s Chamomile & Agave Hydrogel Face Masks

<!–

–>

There are so many different kinds of masks out there formulated to suit different skin types and provide different benefits. Previously for Small Talk, we’ve reviewed Village 11 Factory’s 2-Step Sheet Masks and Dr. Jart’s Dermask Shaking Rubber Mask. This time around, we’re trying out Petitfee’s Chamomile & Agave Hydrogel Face Masks!

The Agave version is cooling while the Chamomile version brightens skin. Read on to see who’s on Team Agave and who’s on Team Chamomile.

Dianne: Hey Maureen, I saw that you tried Petitfee’s Chamomile & Agave eye masks! I’ve been meaning to try out the hydrogel sheet mask versions. Have you tried those ones yet?

Maureen: I tried the eye masks and they were great! Can’t wait to try the face masks 😍

Zoe: I love hydrogel masks, and my face is like SUPER DRYYYYYY right now 😭

Romy: I’m already obsessed with sheet masks but hydrogel masks are next level! And the colors of the Petitfee Hydrogel Face Masks look so cute!

Dianne: Yes!!! I tried hydrogel facial masks a LONG time ago and tbh I don’t really remember what they feel like!

Zoe: I only remember that it’s hard to make them stay on lol.

Dianne: Let’s get #sheetfaced 😂

Zoe: How was the fit? 

Dianne: It’s crazy! It fits like a second skin lmaooo

Romy: These masks fit perfectly for me as well! I applied the top one first before putting on the bottom one, and I was surprised that it didn’t fall off my face like other hydrogel masks I’ve tried before.

Zoe: Lol how did it fit your face that perfectly? Mine was loose.

Maureen: Mine also hugs perfectly.

Romy: Haha maybe your face is too small for the mask?

Dianne: :O This was the first time a mask fit so perfectly for me! Usually, it falls off to the side or down my chin, or it goes up to my hair!

Maureen: The chin area is a bit small for me, but I have a long chin.

Zoe: Oh my god, I was actually hoping it would be a little bigger. There were gaping holes around my nose and chin. 😂 Usually with face masks, I use the extended areas for my neck too, so they can really deliver a lifting effect.

Dianne: On closer inspection, I noticed that it had a gauze-like material in between the hydrogel. I think that’s what made it easily conform to the shape of the face~

Maureen: Yeah, it doesn’t slip.

Dianne: Did you like the texture of the masks?

Maureen: I sure do. I mean, I love all hydrogel masks.

Dianne: I thought it would be a lot more jelly-like, and that it would feel slimy because of all the essence in the packet.

Zoe: The essence was super silky.

Romy: These masks have such a smooth feel to them, and the essence was just the right amount so it wasn’t messy to put on.

Zoe: I rubbed the essence from the packet all over my body~~~ It literally softened my skin instantly, and it’s non-sticky omg!

Maureen: It also doesn’t drip.

Romy: Plus it doesn’t tear as easily!

Dianne: Exactly! I was surprised at how durable it was considering I’m hella clumsy.

Zoe: It sure feels more premium than regular hydrogel.

Maureen: I just hope they could use less plastic to make it more eco-friendly. Both pieces were layered between plastic sheets. Makes it easier to take them out tho.

Romy: I think that’s so they stay in shape in the packaging? But I agree, they should try to make it more eco-friendly.

Maureen: How long did you guys keep them on?

Dianne: I put them on for around 15 mins and I really felt the essence soak into my skin. Could’ve gone longer tho, the packet says it lasts around 20 mins.

Romy: Same here. I left them on for 15 minutes and there was still plenty of essence left after taking them off.

Zoe: Oops, for the Agave one, I left it on for like 40mins (by accident).

Romy: Wow, did it completely dry out?

Zoe: Surprisingly not lol. The finishing is the same as when I put the Chamomile one on for 20 mins 😂

Romy: How did your skin feel after applying the Agave version?

Zoe: I felt very soothed haha, and my face looked hydrated and plump but not super dewy like it’s supposed to after wearing a sheet mask.

Dianne: Yeah, I agree. With some masks, the essence feels super sticky afterwards and doesn’t dry very quickly. I always feel like the essence dissipates into the air instead of soaking into my skin. BUT for this one, the essence was lightweight and actually moisturized my skin!

Romy: It soothed my skin as well! I had a few blemishes that were super red and angry but after applying the Agave mask, my skin felt soothed and my acne looked less inflamed.

Maureen: I also like how it soothed my skin, especially after a day in the sun. My masks were half-flattened by the time I took them off, so all the moisture went into my skin!

Zoe: I love how with hydrogel masks, they actually shrink after use haha. I also really love the smell and color! Not sure what the scent is actually… reminds me of certain air fresheners in oceany scents XD

Dianne: Oh really? I honestly didn’t think it had a certain fragrance! 😆 I’m not very sensitive to scents and couldn’t really pinpoint what it was~

Maureen: I can’t remember the smell tbh, but is it just me, or do both masks have a minty feel?

Romy: Yeah, I can’t remember the smell either, but I remember they were both pleasant scents XD The Agave one left a slight cooling sensation while I was wearing it, but it felt really nice and not tingly!

Zoe: I find the Agave gave more of a tingling feel when I first tried it, whereas for Chamomile, it was more of a gentle coolness throughout (relieved)

Dianne: The Chamomile defos felt gentler on skin. I didn’t notice my complexion looking much brighter, but it did even out the areas where I got a bit sunburnt.

Romy: I was in total zen mode when I had the Chamomile mask on. It felt soothing and left my skin looking plumper, but it also didn’t leave my skin tone looking brighter.

Maureen: The brightening effect of the chamomile was more obvious when I tried the eye masks ­– they helped brighten my dark circles.

Romy: Perhaps you need to use it long term to really see the brightening effects?

Zoe: Hmm, brightening effect is always so hard to judge. But it sure made my skin glow nicely! Based on the finishing, I feel the masks are more suited to use before putting on makeup.

Romy: They definitely make it easier for you to apply your makeup, but I prefer using it in my nighttime routine.

Dianne: Yeah, I only ever wear sheet masks for my nighttime routine or when I wear particularly heavy makeup.

Zoe: I actually still need to apply a sleeping pack afterwards for my nighttime routine. I love the finishing, but it’s just not quite nourishing enough for my dry skin.

Dianne: Team Agave or Team Chamomile?

Maureen: It’d be Agave for me just coz of the strange blue color XD

Dianne: Same here! Maybe it’s because of the weather, but I love how cooling it is after a long day of boiling under the sun!

Romy: Me too! I love how the Agave one cools my skin, so Agave wins for me! The cute bluish/purplish color is also another reason why I prefer it 💙

Dianne: Totally~ its color is so Insta-worthy!

Zoe: Despite the amazing color of the Agave one, I prefer Chamomile. Chamomile is like a holy grail for sensitive skin 😍 I have to say the slight tingling from the Agave put me off a teeny bit.

All that Glitters: Review of Elizavecca’s Gold Essence & Eye Patches

<!–

–>

The YesStyle Beauty Lab

“Golden” Remedies for Troubled Skin

Elizavecca is famed for its Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask. Having heard good things about the brand and drawn by its weird and wonderful packaging featuring a pig mascot, I decided to give two products from the Milky Piggy Hell-Pore series a try – the Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Gold Essence and the Hell-Pore Gold Hyaluronic Eye Patch. Undoubtedly, a major selling point for both is the infusion of 24K gold extracts. Is this a marketing gimmick, or a way to brighter, firmer skin? Let’s find out!

The Context: My skin has been experiencing a number of problems despite dutiful adherence to a regimen that involves cleanser, toner, serum, hydrating cream and plenty of sheet masks. Spots, whiteheads, enlarged pores and even angry red patches have been steadily appearing with no signs of fading. I can’t be sure whether this is due to a lifetime of sleeping with my makeup on or simply the march of time, but I’m desperate for a remedy that can calm down my fluctuating combination skin and save it from premature aging.

The Product:What I noticed immediately about this essence was the 24K gold powder suspended in the dropper bottle. Purportedly, it works with other moisturizing and calming ingredients to produce hydrating, brightening and anti-inflammatory benefits. The essence has a faint herbal scent that I can’t place, but I’m glad it’s not a harsh chemical scent or a rich floral fragrance.

I placed two drops into my palms using the dropper and gently pressed the essence into my face, but that didn’t quite seem to cover it so I added one drop more. Thin, light and watery, it spread easily over my face, producing no immediate irritation. While part of me remained skeptical about whether the gold flakes could indeed melt into my skin and work their magic, the other part of me really wanted to believe the hype. I continued using the essence for two weeks and watched for potential improvements.

The Results:There are no visible downturns in my facial condition so I’m at least not allergic to the product, but there are also no discernible improvements. My skin does seem a teensy bit brighter and smoother, but that could simply be the luster of the gold powder. Unfortunately, the redness, roughness and dry patches remain. Perhaps I need to persist for a few months before visible effects appear?

The Context:In addition to increasingly tired-looking skin, my under-eye area has also been experiencing some trouble. It’s been getting puffier and darker, most likely due to late nights and poor blood circulation. Fine lines have also started to appear. Having always resorted to concealers to hide my dark circles, I used to believe that my eye bags would resolve themselves in time. I’ve finally realized that a more drastic rescue is needed.

The Product:Coming in a sparkly golden hue, these eye patches are infused with gold extracts to “discharge skin impurities.” They’re soaked with hyaluronic acid which helps to lock in moisture while promoting brightness and elasticity, and adenosine which is known for plumping up skin and erasing wrinkles. The patch itself is made of hydrogel and adheres closely to skin, thus preventing the loss of active ingredients.

After cleansing and toning, I stuck the eye patches to my under-eye area, patting and pressing gently to ensure optimal absorption. I also placed a couple of patches onto my neck to curtail potential sagging. There was a slight sting initially, which faded to a cool, soothing sensation. After waiting for 20-25 minutes, I removed the patches and patted the essence in for further absorption. This ritual was religiously repeated every other day for two weeks.

The Results: There’s a visible reduction of swelling and puffiness in my under-eye area, with skin appearing more refined. While my dark circles show only slight signs of fading, I believe continued use would provide further alleviation. Factoring in my habits of going to bed late and sleeping lightly, I’m pleasantly surprised by these small but significant improvements!

Final Verdict

I’d recommend the Gold Hyaluronic Acid Eye Patch to people who want to tighten and firm up their under-eye area at a wallet-friendly price. It may not do everything it says on the tin, but it contains enough of the right ingredients to produce solid benefits. Plus, I have to say that putting on those sparkly eye patches is one of life’s simple joys.

On the other hand, the Hell-Pore Gold Essence did not have any noticeable effect on my skin. The 24K gold seems to serve more as a decoration than a functional ingredient. The bottle does look very pretty on my desk, though I doubt that I’ll be reaching for it anytime soon.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard to hold talks with World Cup winner

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is planning to hold talks with striker Olivier Giroud over his future at the club, according to reports.

The 33-year-old has seen his chances limited under the Blues legend due to the form of Tammy Abraham.

Giroud has played just 191 minutes of football this season and hasn’t featured in the Premier League since August.

The Frenchman will have his eye on securing more game time to ensure his place in his country’s squad for Euro 2020.

And the Independent report that Lampard is keen to keep the ex-Arsenal hitman but that he will speak with him about his situation.

Lampard wants talks with Giroud over the striker’s future.

“I had a good chat with Oli before he went away and I always respect all the players, but particularly the players of that age of low thirties,” said Lampard.

“I love his professionalism. He was bang on when he spoke to me and with his quotes when he was away with France.

“He shouldn’t be happy and accept not playing. That’s what good players do. I think, as I said to Oli, he will get his games and be a big influence for us.

“At the moment, because of how Tammy is playing, there hasn’t been the minutes, so I would happily sit down with Oli in January. But that is a long way away. I want him here.”

Giroud has scored 19 goals and won both the FA Cup and Europa League since joining from Arsenal in January 2018.
