Bridal Beauty: Liz Earle Smoothing Line Serum

A high end skincare range that doesn’t pilfer your purse can be hard to find. Lately, I’ve turned my affections to ole Lizzy Earle after hearing some great things from family and friends. I am on a mission to have my skin perfect for the wedding and I am willing to put my face on the line for all you other brides and skincare enthusiasts alike.

Within my Liz Earle skincare set, I got the Smoothing Line serum too and I was thought “oh, hellllllllllllllllooo!” I’ve started to notice as I creep towards 30, that I’ve all kinds of lines that seem to have cropped up out of nowhere. Either that, or I am just staring in the mirror a little longer, oh the vanity! Now, ideally, I would like this lines to feck off, but it’s probably not going to happen but this little baby certainly reduces the appearance of them.

 

Serum

Enriched with antioxidant grapeseed extract and soothing echinacea, this serum plumps and give elasticity to the skin. It’s oil free too, so it’s great for all us shiny sebum producing creatures. Simply apply at night under your Liz Earle Moisturiser to seal in an extra hydration boost. You can also use it as lightweight alternative to moisturiser for really oily or combination skin.

The serum worked really well on my decolletage and my nasolabial lines. You know those little shit ones that go from your nose to your mouth and in certain light looks like an old Tom Selleck? Yep, those ones. After I’ve cleansed, toned and moisturised, I gently pat this onto my face, paying extra attention to the eye area.

This serum will appeal to brides looking to get their skin in the best shape it possibly can be especially if you are worried about how oily your skin is.

The serum is €22.00 but you only need a small amount and it should last you. Check out http://ie.lizearle.com/smoothing-line-serum.html for some great deals or drop into Boots for a personalised consultation now.

Cheers Lizzie babes!

Tropical Popical… And why you need to visit!

Tropical Popical is one seriously cool nail bar. It’s like a nightclub and holiday for your hands all rolled into one.

Tropical-Popical-Nail-Bar

Upon entering into Tropical Popical, you are greeted by their funky decor and unbelievable selections of nail colours on their wall. I was greeted by the lovely Michelle who offered me some Lilt, yes Lilt, served in a Coconut and also some Bounty to go with it. Now, I despise Bounty bars, so I declined, but I loved the idea of it all the same. It’s like I was transported to Miami clashed with Caribbean coolness.

My nail technician was Niamh and as I showed her some pictures of what I had in mind for my talons, we decided on some tribal markings and pastel. Niamh is an exceptionally talented nail technician with a vision for precision. She is very friendly and personable and I quickly felt at ease.

I usually only go for some colour and maybe something different on my ring fingers to mix it up. But I said I’d go all out on my nail art seen as Tropical Popical are reknowned for this. The salon prides itself on it’s relaxed feeling and you really get into the atmosphere with the music playing. I wanted to go out after. It was a Tuesday. At 2.30pm.

The nail bar also caters for large groups and hen parties and it would make for an excellent hens. You can also bring some Proscecco in to have in your Coconut instead of Lilt. They are based in South William Street and you can check them out here. This is the perfect place for anyone working/living in town, a hen or bridal party or just for the lovers of some seriously edgy nails.

In a world of beauty it’s important to stand out and Tropical Popical manages to do just that. And if you’re a little bit Amish about your nails, you can get plain ones too 😉

Be prepared, you will fall in love! And your nails will be shit hot…
