Beauty Products

Something old, something new…

ImageBefore my gorgeous gal pal Adj-pants up and left me to move to the other side of the world (it’s OK, I’m over it *side eye*) she left me a plethora of beauty products and other goodies. I’ve used most of them everyday (things like deodorant and make-up wipes) and then stashed the others for later use.

Well I stumbled upon these two products while trying to find something else (isn’t that always the way?) and I thought I should bust them out and give them a test drive. They are e.l.f. Studio Make-up & Mist Set and Bach Rescue Remedy and they’ve become my new favourite products.

The e.l.f mist is meant to keep your make-up in place all day. Now I’m not sure if it’s actually doing that, and reading the reviews online most people say the same thing, but it is lovely to spritz it on at the end of your make-up routine. It’s quite refreshing, with the aloe and cucumber extracts, and I can see this will be used more and more in summer. 

The Rescue Remedy is meant to calm you in times of stress and anxiety. Again, it’s probably a placebo but it does seem to be a great natural remedy when I’m feeling a little antsy. The spiel from the website says: 

This mix was created by Dr Bach to deal with emergencies and crises – the moments when there is no time to make a proper individual selection of remedies. It can be used to help us get through any stressful situations, from last-minute exam or interview nerves, to the aftermath of an accident or bad news. Rescue Remedy helps us relax, get focused and get the needed calmness.

Hmmm that sounds quite questionable but you know if it’s not harming me then I’ll continue to use it. 

Thanks for the haul Adj-pants! xo

  1. Rescue Remedy is sold at our organic pet food and health store for anxious animals. It did absolutely nothing for our overly anxious cat. I’ve been nervous to use it myself, but if it works, even just on a placebo level, I wouldn’t pass it by. Have you tried it?

    Also, never tried a make-up set thing. Saw one being used on a bride for a wedding and her make-up held up really well throughout the entire outside wedding ceremony and the afternoon long dancing and luncheon. She stayed gorgeous.

    • Hey, well the make up mist is yet to be trialled through a long hot day, but I can say it seems to work on a daily basis in the office, i.e. pretty sedate days.

      The Rescue Remedy does seem to work, although I’m not sure if it’s because I’m telling myself that it’ll work, if that makes sense. It’s pretty harmless and it tastes awful but it’s doing the trick!
      Have you used it yourself?

  2. I swear by all the Bach Remedies! I have used the pet remedy for my pets (after we moved, and they were getting used to the new house, and when we have to leave them during vacations, etc). I have used the Rescue Remedy and various Flower Remedies for different things. Yeah, I’m kind of “out there” 😉

    Anywho, I do believe the Rescue Remedy has a “touch” of alcohol in it. Whatever works, right? I do use it when anxious though.

  3. I have been wanting to try the elf mist, but it’s one of those things you know you should try but just haven’t gotten around to it. Let me know how it wears on you…or if you see a difference. It’s only $3 so I guess I should stop being cheap…LOL 🙂

    I would probably benefit from that Rescue Remedy. Even if it is all in my head, at least it’s positive right?! 😀

  4. Hiii!! Aww you’re so welcome love, glad you’re getting stuck in to the goodies! Well placebo or not, you know I swear by the RR. I’m sure ass is one of the active ingredients though xx

Now it's your turn...let me know what you think. I love reading your comments! :)
