Emma Hardie- Bright Time Essentials

28 January 2017

So I managed to grab myself a bargain with this set at christmas I got the set on sale from £50 to £29 which is a bargain as I had wanted to try these out for some time I had to get my hands on them. This set comes with four products and the cloth to go with it aswell as the bag which is always handy.


Moisture Boost Vit+ C Cream

"A vitamin enriched day cream that helps to uncover your skins natural radiance. A pure blend of Vitamin B3 and time-released Vitamin C reduces the appearance of dark spots and promotes healthy collagen production, leaving the skin looking brighter, clearer and more even as well as helping to reduce the visible signs of ageing. "

The first thing I loved about this product is the fact that it has vitamin c in it. This cream is quite a rich, thick cream which personally I like because I have eczema so its perfect to moisturise my skin. Again with this product it leave my skin feeling nice and soft, refreshed and overall looking so much brighter quite instantly really!


Moringa Cleansing Balm & Cloth
"Award winning Moringa Cleansing Balm is a balanced daily cleanser that thoroughly cleanse deep in the pores, moisturises and calms all skin types"

This balm is my favourite of all the products, I have very dry skin and this honestly leave my skin feeling so soft and revitalised. The scent of this product is gorgeous and the texture is amazing it feels so soft even when you first put it on your skin. The oils help to make your skin feel relaxed and I have noticed I have less pores after using this for three weeks. The only thing I wish about this product is that I got a bigger size in the set as I'm deffintley going to want to re purchase this once I've finished this tub. 


Vitamin C Intense Daily Serum
"A super charged Vit C Serum, that helps brighten the skin and helps reduce dark spots and pigmentation. The time released Vit C, helps promote collagen synthesis, leaving the skin looking brighter and clearer."

This serum is lovely, it feels runny but its not a bad thing because a little does such a long way with this product. This is applied under you're moisturiser and it seems to even out my skin a lot and make it much brighter in general. I would definitely recommend this product and I think it works well with the moisturiser. 



Brilliance Oil

"Brilliance Facial Oil is a light-weight, multi-active everyday facial oil complex, containing 9 essential oils of Palma Rose, Orange, Mint, Vanilla, Geranium, Camomile, Lemon, Rose and Lavender that help to condition, hydrate and smooth the skin's texture."

This is the thing I have used least in this set mainly because I actually struggle to get it out the bottle for some reason I don't know if anyone else has this problem or if it is just me. But from what I have used of this product i do really like it, although I've seen people say this is great for eczema so I want to give this a good try and see what I think of it!

I recently got some new products from Beauty UK, if you've never heard of Beauty Uk before they are high street makeup brand sold in super drug in store and online as well as having their own website. They are known for being very affordable but in the past I have been very impressed by the brand so I love to try new products from them.

The first item I received was a matte lipstick in shade: son of a peach No.15, the consistency of these lipsticks are lovely! Their so soft and creamy and they leave a long lasting stain on your lips although I did need a few applications but for the price of £3.49 you cant really complain. The colour of this shade can be seen above its a very pinky toned lipstick which is quite a light colour when on the lips. 

The next item I got was a lipliner in shade: No.4 peachy kiss which is to the match son of a peach, this liner is a twist liner so you twist the packaging to get the product up the tube, personally these are my favourites! It also comes pointed so it makes it so easy to apply which is always a bonus. 

I also received two different types of blush the first was a baked blush in shade: halo No.3, this is a lighter more shimmery shade than the other blush. It so easily blended because its so light. I would actually say this would be better to be used as a highlighter than anything as its so shimmery but the shade is so pretty! Also the packaging looks really luxurious with the box, quite comparable with Benefit and for £3.99 you cant complain. 

The other is a Beauty Uk Sweet Cheecks Cream stick in shade: Strawberry Jelly No.3, I was so excited to try this as I love their contour chubby sticks and I literally use them everyday and I can tell already that this is going to be no different. This looks like quite a bright pink but when blended in it looks so pretty. The consistency of these is so lovely and creamy.
