When it comes to shopping for beauty products, Ideal World may not be your first thought. I know for me, I associated the home shopping network more with Tupperware and appliances than with makeup and skin care. However, little did I know that they actually stock a huge range of beauty products. Aside from more indie brands, there’s also well-known names such as JML, Estee Laude and fragrances from the likes of Gucci.
The team were kind enough to send me over a selection of some of their best selling and most exciting new products, so obviously, I thought I’d share my thoughts with you all;
Ideal World – Blogger Beauty Box
Containing a range of makeup and skin care, opening up the package I was like a kid in a candy shop. My box contained;
- Elizabeth Grant – Supreme Essence of Torricelumn Serum
- He-Shi – 1 Hour Rapid Tan
- Elizabeth Grant – Moisture Stick
- Beauty Pro – Rejuvenating Collagen Mask
- Skinn – Hollywood Velvet Lip Palette
- Elizabeth Grant – Silk Edition Firming Eye Pads
- Liquilift – Slender Wrap
- Elizabeth Grant – Cheeky Tint
- Skinn – Sulfate Free Cleanser
As there were so many gorgeous goodies, I’m not going to review them all in this post. You’ll see other bits popping up over the coming weeks. But for now I thought I’d focus on one brand that stood out to me, Elizabeth Grant.
Elizabeth Grant Skin Care
Not heard of Elizabeth Grant before? I’ll let you off. Despite seeing the gold logo on my Instagram before, they were new to me too. So I’ll give you the low down, Elizabeth Grant is a Canadian skin care company specialising in luxury skin care products. All of the range contains their powerful patented anti-aging ingredient which will help keeping your skin feeling great. As someone who’s had skin issues since being a teen, I know it’s super important to look after your skin as prevention is always better than the cure.
As I suffer with dry skin, the Supreme Essence of Torricelumn Serum was possibly the item I was most excited to try. You are meant to apply one or two drops on your face and neck before moisturising morning and night. With this, the serum is intended to target the five main signs that your skin is ageing, lines / wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dullness and most importantly for me – dryness. With two uses a day, you may be wondering just how long that 50ml may last? Well when they say a drop, they really do mean it. A little goes a long way and after almost a month of usage I’ve barely used a fifth.
The second skin care item from Elizabeth Grant was one that, well, I thought I may be a bit young for. Luckily, I’ve not yet got much in the way of ageing signs around my eyes. However, I was wrong. I popped these on after a particularly long week at work and although I still felt a little drained, my eyes didn’t show it. Plus, I popped the excess gel on my lips and it left them feeling the best they had in weeks. One that I’ll be repurchasing for sure.
Elizabeth Grant Beauty
As you probably know by now, I’m a self confessed beauty addict. So if I didn’t talk about the Elizabeth Grant beauty bits I tried, well I mean, would it even be a FrannyMac blog post?
So on that note, firstly the Collagen Re-Inforce Cheeky Tint. The style of the bottle and product name may well jump you to the “oh, it’s a Benefit dupe!”. But rest assured, this little beauty may look familiar but don’t let that fool you into thinking this is second rate. Much like Benefit’s range of tints, Elizabeth Grant’s Cheeky Tint can be used to add a buildable flush of colour to your cheeks and lips. However, until Benefit’s version this does so while having the added benefits of collagen too. Although the name probably gave that away!
Last but not least is, the Moisture Stick lipstick. As my week in lipstick posts give away, I wear a lot of liquid lipsticks so they’re often in need of some TLC. This is where the Elizabeth Grant Moisture Stick comes in. Put on before my lipstick and after my lush sugar scrub, it means that my lipstick goes on flawlessly and helps me avoid dry chapped lips. Not only that, at £9.99 for 4, it’s a complete bargain.
