Beauty Without Injections | Products Review

Beauty is in the skin. Take care of it, clean it, scrub it, tone it, moisturise it, oil it, and put on your best clothes, even if there is no special occasion, and you’ll feel like a queen. 

Beauty Without Injections | Products Review 1

~ Collaboration with Beauty Without Injections ~

And if society is hard on you, fight back by pampering & looking after your skin.

 

Skin is political.

 

Be a rebel.

OK, I have a confession to make… yes I am a skincare junkie…sshhh! Now, don’t tell anyone {cue in the wink wink}.

I honestly didn’t even realise it until the other day I went looking through my cupboard in the bathroom for my eyebrow enhancer (to help regrow my 90s over plucked eyebrows) and lo & behold, I stood there with my mouth wide open in shock at how many skin care products I have.

Its been a steady building progression of this skin-care journey that I have been on for many years. I just love anything that has to do with skin care. Whether it’s a moisturizer or an anti-aging serum, facial scrubs, facial sheet masks, eye cream… skincare has always been an obsession of mine.

Now I have been moisturising my skin since I was about 11 years old and used to use my mothers blue tin Nivea cream. There are a million skin care products out on the market that promise (supposedly guarantee) to help us look and achieve that healthy, less wrinkle/fine line free, younger looking face.

I didn’t start cleansing and toning my face until I was in my early twenties and by the time I was in my late twenties/early thirties, I then discovered serums and exfoliation products.

Recently I was lucky enough to be sent a gorgeous package of products from Beauty Without Injections to trial out and review.  So let’s check out what I thought about each product, and if I would use it again:

NaPCA Moisture Mist Spray

Beauty Without Injections | Products Review - Style & Life by Susana

Before I say anything else, I have to admit that I am obsessed with moisture hydrating mists. I have so many of them, that it’s not even funny (!!).

So what are hydrating mists? Well, basically its giving your face a little drink of water. You know when you’re feeling thirsty, basically that means you’re dehydrated. Well, you’re skin is the same way.

Facial mists help to keep your skin hydrated and also provide nutrients to your skin, and can be used many times over throughout the day to freshen up and rehydrate your skin as needed. Think of a hydrating mist as a secret weapon in your skincare regimen, adding a boost of hydration and nourishment for major glow action.

The NaPCA* in this moisture mist spray is oil free so it won’t make your face look extremely glossy like some other products out on the market do. The feel of the mist is fine and quite refreshing, and you feel your skin lapping up the hydration it needs,

What’s brilliant about this particular product, is that it works well also for your hair. It helps to feel soft, getting the extra moisture it needs (especially if you have dry and/or coloured hair).

There’s no limit to how many times a day you spray your face – but I will say this, your face and hair will thank you!!

* NaPCA is the sodium salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid. It is a unique nutrient found in naturally in the skin tissue to help maintain optimal moisture levels. 

Light Shine Lip Plumping Balm

Beauty Without Injections | Products Review - Style & Life by Susana

The packaging of this product is so luxurious, simple and chic. For me, it has a very 1940’s/50’s Hollywood glamour look about it.

Again, another product that I am obsessed with and have countless of lip balms all over the house, in my car, jackets and at my work. I just hate having my lips feel dry and I am constantly applying lip balm throughout the day. I just like having my lips feel soft.

Now over the past few years, we’ve seen the beauty market get flooded with products that apparently say will plump up your lips, giving them a fuller look to them.  These products are meant to give your lips a fuller look without having to undergo any painful injections.

In the past I have bought a couple of them, one high end and the other one drugstore. I didn’t actually see any difference in my lips from either one, and I couldn’t feel a tingle or even a slight irritating sensation. So to be honest, when I saw this in the gift box I was a little tad dubious about it.

Upon opening the product, it has a lovely light shade of pink, to give a natural glossy look to your lips. Immediately after applying the lip balm all over my lips, I did feel my lips start to tingle and they did look a tiny bit plumper but I didn’t notice them become fuller but there was definitely a difference that was slightly noticeable.

LightShine Curl & Lash Mascara (black)

Beauty Without Injections | Products Review - Style & Life by Susana

I am ALWAYS on the look out for a mascara that promises to deliver what it really promotes it to be.

God knows I have gone through so many mascaras from the drug store to the high end department, designer brand and most mascaras are either annoyingly too thick and clumpy (bah!!) or they leave my lashes looking as thin and spidery just like the daddy long legs staring at me from my toilet ceiling earlier this morning!

Now, my eyelashes are a boring normal length and they really don’t have much of a curl to them, which is why I absolutely love this mascara! It lifted my lashes and made them look so long, elongated and lifted. It didn’t give as much volume to it, so I did have to apply it three times but I was still very happy with the end results. Also, the mascara is water proof.

True Face - Instant Line Corrector

Beauty Without Injections | Products Review - Style & Life by Susana

This little beauty is a secret weapon! It’s like temporary botox for your face without the pain of injections and the expensive costs.

This cream is made from natural amino acids that fills and relaxes facial lines, that temporarily reduces the appearance of fine lies & wrinkles on the forehead, around the top part of your mouth, and also around your eyes.

What this product does is that it helps to promote relaxation to the lines and wrinkles, giving your face a much smoother and younger feel. Upon application of the product I straight away felt a slight irritating/tingle feel, which the first time when I used this cream it scared the bejesus out of me but upon discovery I found that was actually normal. The tingle feel only lasts for a few minutes.

I love the way the cream made my skin felt after applying it – silky skin smooth and I saw the fine lines reduce. God send product!!

Epoch® Glacial Marine Mud®

Beauty Without Injections | Products Review - Style & Life by Susana

Just like any facial mask, mud masks are used to detox, purify the skin and bring out a glowy look to your face.

Since ancient times the sea has been a renowned source for rheumatic illnesses and skin issues like eczema.

The original beauty queen, Cleopatra created one the first spas in the world because she deeply believed in the sea’s skin booting benefits and healing powers.

This product removes impurities and dead skin cells without affecting normal cells of the face,  it has more than 30 skin beneficial minerals (like calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulfates, and bromide), and you can use it all over your body as well.

What’s amazing about this product is the way that the mud soaks up oil, dirt, and impurities from the skin which basically makes the mud a dream detoxer for treating acne, minimizing pores and keeping those naughty wrinkles and fine lines far away for as long as possible. Basically this mud mask is like an all in one fascial!

I made sure I applied generous amounts of the mud all over my face [always make sure to avoid the eyes and mouth area] and let it sit for no more than 20 minutes. To know its dry, you will see the mud turn a light aqua-marinish type of colour. Always rinse with warm water, to avoid making a mess around the bathroom sink like me, I would suggest using a face cloth and soaking that in warm water to remove the mud from your face, gently.

I absolutely loved the way my skin felt and looked after this mud mask. Super smooth and soft, radiant and so healthy looking, a rosy glow. I noticed a huge improvement in my skin after the first usage.

Mud masks help maintain natural moisture levels in the skin, stimulating blood flow to the capillaries, and oxygen to the skin cells. It basically gives it an energy boost!

And an even more perfect reason to buy this product is that every $0.25 from each Epoch Glacial Marine Mud product that is sold goes towards the Force for Good campaign, which assists various cultures and projects around the world!

Facelift Formula Package [also known as "Botox in a Bottle"]

Beauty Without Injections | Products Review - Style & Life by Susana

Just like the True Face – Instant Line Corrector, this product gives a temporary botox like feeling to your whole face lasting up to 12 hours. Man, was I super excited when I saw this in the package!! Haha!

It comes in a package of two products: the “Face Lift Powder” and the “Face Lift Activator”.

The beauty of these products is that it basically tightens your face and neck, give your face a nice little lift, giving the neck and face a firmer and younger looking appearance and all without surgery. It is only temporarily but the more you do it on a weekly basis, it will help to keep the pause button on fine lines and wrinkles, just a little tad longer – and I am all for that!

The Face Lift Formula features the prime ingredient, albumen which is basically the white of the egg. Think of it this way, the same way the albumen protects and nourishes a baby chick in its shell, it can have the same energizing effects for your skin. The high level of protein in albumen, along with its natural low-moisture state, makes it a really effective moisturizing and tightening agent. And also the albumen is a natural anti-inflammatory.

To mix the products, what you will need is a small bowl (never metallic). Just add one teaspoon of the Lift Activator and also, one teaspoon of the Lift Powder and mix it all until it becomes a thin mixture lotion. You might need to add a couple more drops of the Activator if the mixture is lumpy [which I did find on a couple of occasions].

Grab a make up brush (you can even use an unused paint brush) to apply a light coat of the mixture, in upward motions. Once done, go make yourself a cuppa and chill for half an hour. Once its dried, it will harden. To remove, use a face wash with warm water to dissolve & remove the product from your face. Remember to be gentle.

Immediately I noticed my face looking tighter and smoother, with a radiant glow. I use this product twice a week, normally on Thursday and Sunday nights.

FINAL THOUGHTS

I actually really loved all of these products, especially the Instant Line Corrector, Glacial Marine Mud Mask and the Facelift Formula Package, besides the fact they actually do what they’re promoting to do, are really lovely to use and most of all – that it’s also affordable. It’s an everyday luxury that I believe every woman can definitely enjoy.
