Pure Bliss...

I have been trying out some new products from Bliss recently and wanted to update you guys on that. If I'm not wrong, Bliss have their own spa's and I've seen their products retail on counters in Debenhams. However if you're an obsessive online shopper like me you can go ahead and get these products from their website.

I have their Fabulous Face Lotion(£25) and their Fabulous Everyday Eye Cream(£24). On first glance, I did not like the packaging as face products that come in tubes like these usually finish up very quickly. However, don't judge them by size as they come jam packed with a lot of product and you really only need a tiny bit.

The Fabulous Face Lotion contains an SPF of 15 and come with a PA++ rating meaning its clinically proven to protect against age inducing sun rays. It also comes along with the usual vitamins and anti oxidants which are great for nourishing the skin.

The texture of this is a bit thick but it absorbs in to the skin in a minute and give a luminous finish. It dries almost matte though, so you don't get any greasy residue. It suited my combination-sensitive skin pretty well and did cause it to break out which I am pleased about. It's not overtly moisturising though and I still need an eye cream and some extra hydration on dry places around my nose for instance. 

Overall, this is a perfect contender for the coming summer as its light, protects against sun damage and gives a lovely sheen. 

The Fabulous Eye Cream comes with Vitamin E and grape seed oil and is supposed to defeat dark circles and brighten the under eye area. I did not feel it did anything for my dark circles to be honest as they are genetic and concealer is all that can help them.

Otherwise the cream was pretty decent at lightly moisturizing the area and the effects stayed for long which I liked. It also made it easier for my concealer to glide on. 

Overall, its not bad but it's not something I'm a fan off. I think I really like the Face Lotion instead.

I have no idea how this scary just-woken-up side shot will help in giving an indication but over the weeks I noticed how the face cream helped clear my skin. Me likey!

I also love how smoothly my foundation glides on the face cream and gives the make-up a radiant finish. Just a shot after applying make-up on these products.

Scary side shot? Are you kidding me, your skin/face is gorgeous even without makeup, flawless! I don't know if you talked about this before, but how do you get rid of your facial hair (above the lip)? Do you just wax it or is it permanently removed (I don't notice any in the picture)?I am thinking about electrolysis, but I am somewhat scared of the pain and possible side-effects.

@mediterraneangirl15 - No ways! You can't see any. I do have a bit of peach fuzz hehe.

But above the upper lip, I remove them every two days with this thing called 'My spring it' and it takes like a minute and I don't even need a mirror to use it.

Every girl needs to own one! I got mine from ebay but you can check it out here too http://www.myspringit.com/

Also I cant stand waxing and this is much less painful compared to that and you don't even get that shadow effect ever.
