Fillerina Treatment Kit reviewed by beauty blogger and make up artist, Sarah Jagger 

“In all the years I’ve been racking the brains of cosmetic scientists and doctors, they’ve all told me the same thing: hyaluronic acid molecules are too big to penetrate the skin, making them perfect for injecting yet redundant when used topically in skincare. […]  I was pleasantly surprised. […] it definitely freshened my skin and the lines now look less obvious because my skin overall is significantly more hydrated…the kind of just-had-a-facial plumpness normally achieved after an hour of someone massaging your skin with expensive products.” For full review click here.

Oxygenetix reviewed by beauty blogger Clara Snuggs aka Posh Beauty Blog 

” I was sent a few shades of Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation to try and was surprised to find it makes my skin look incredibly healthy, bright and vibrant” She later adds in a list of all her favourite things about the Foundation, one of them being: “It’s long lasting – I never have to reapply Oxygenetix until late into the evening if at all. Even in the highest temps and humidity (I tested this in the extra-humid Maritimes) it doesn’t smudge, even when you sweat. It also doesn’t stain your clothing, which is a big plus. Oxygenetix is even water-resistant.” For full review click here

 Fillerina Treatment Kit reviewed by journalist, Alice Hart – Davies. 

“[…] I could see that the product was being absorbed by my skin, and I think it is looking fuller and smoother, while my lips look noticeably plumper in the mornings. For an independent opinion, I had my skin assessed before and after at the Santi Skin Lab in South Kensington, Central London. Staff used a Cortex machine, state-of-the-art skin analysis equipment which is used in dermatological research worldwide. I thought my skin was looking good, but what the Cortex machine told me was little short of amazing. ‘There is a remarkable change in skin structure,’ said Tariq Karim, director of Santi Skin Lab. ‘The skin on the forehead shows a considerable improvement.’ […]” The review originally appeared in the Daily Mail, to read in full click here.

The Ultimate Foundation For Every Weather | @Oxygenetix

There are so many foundations out there that it is hard to keep track. Full, medium, light coverage. With an SPF, without an SPF. Moisturising, healing, waterproof. Liquid, foam, pressed. Foundation sticks, creams and those with Vitamins.

If there is a new foundation introduced in the market, it has to be completely different. It has to check all the boxes and something extra. It has to be universal in use, easy to use and just the right consistency.

Thankfully, we now have Oxygenetix.

(continued below)

1 oxy

Fairly new on the market, you may have not heard of it unless you are in with all the beauty bloggers and flip through Vogue sometimes. What’s Oxygenetix? Well, they’re an American company who working with plastic surgeons and doctors have designed the Oxygenetix Foundation. Now, there is an Oxygenetix Acne Control Foundation that is designed to treat acne symptoms as well as other skin disorders. It reduces redness and soothes irritation. The original formula was designed to treat post-procedural scars and redness and calm the irritated skin. However, following further research – they found that the foundation was also fantastic in extreme heat and for performers, working under strong, hot lighting all day long. Jess Glynne is a fan of how lightweight the foundation is! 

But if you do not care for pop-star opinion and how about you read some honest beauty blogger reviews, just to do some further…research?

Still not convinced? Visit Oxygenetix website and learn more details about the product. And when you are done resisting the fact this is the perfect foundation for you, head to our website: www.beautyisskindeep.com to order yours today.


 

But you came here to find out why Oxygenetix is the ultimate foundation, right? Well, here’s some reasons:

  • Ideal for sensitive,irritated and damaged skin.
  • The water-resistant formula stays on while you’re swimming or exercising.
  • Offers SPF25 protection.
  • Safe for those with acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema and burns.
  • This formula is also free of fragrance, oil, dye and parabens so it is safe for reactive skin.
  • Can be used after procedures such as microdermabrasion, injections and peels as a comforting product.
  • The creamy formula does not dry out or cause flakes so your texture remains even all day.
  • encourages skin healing and collagen growth, together, the oxygen and collagen improve skin that is dry, rough and weak.

Aquateal | Reinventing Self-Tanning

logo-aquateal

Aquateal are a French brand who recently entered the UK market. They offer a range of tanning products and after-sun care products that are completely, 100% natural and vegan. They are made from three different tea-extracts which act as the tanner. They have a lot of products in their range that we think, you will love!

We all know how self-tanning usually goes. We smear sticky, brown stuff all over ourselves, using funny gloves and massaging into the skin – all evenly and carefully so there are no streaks. Then we wait for it to develop, we go to bed and the horror starts. Your bed is now mysterious -brown or orange, your whole skin smells of chemicals, your tan is streaky and you basically look like you’ve had a dirt fight, rather than a healthy tan. You want to get rid of the remains on your fingers (how did that even get there?!) but it seems impossible and now it just looks like you’ve been dipping your whole hands in bags of Cheetos. Or worse. You desperately wash off and scrub off all that you can, and cover the rest with make up. Now, 5 hours and a lot of tears and rough skin later – you are ready for the day.

Aquateal developed a formula that allows for natural, healthy looking glow to the skin, without the side effects. It doesn’t have an unpleasant smell and it doesn’t stain your clothing due to it’s quick drying formula, getting you an instant tan in seconds! No need for developing time, or washing off – you simply apply on the desired areas with self-tanning gloves and leave to dry.

visuel gamme aquateal classique

The tanning products do not contain self-tanning agent and they are safe for all skin types. They provide a sun-kissed glow to the skin without it looking orange or without chemical smells. Aquateal’s product range is quite extensive, from BB Cream, self-tanning wipes (my personal favourite! – Magdalena), Tinted Moisturising Milk, to Sun Protection with Tan Activator varying from SPF10 to 50.

The Pro-Healing Moisturiser | @Oxygenetix

We are here to talk about a very special product. Originally designed with post – aesthetic treatment patients in mind, this moisturiser we are about tell you about is much more than that.

Most moisturisers available on the market skin in to the skin or dry to leave a barrier over the surface which can suffocate the skin. This one, forms a breathable ‘second skin’ layer that doesn’t block the vital flow of oxygen from reaching the epidermis.

epidermisdef.JPG
Epidermis | Meaning 

This Moisturiser attracts oxygen to the skin thanks to patented, active Cervitae ingredient that’s found in all Oxygenetix products.

It provides essential hydration and ingredients to improve the healing process while also soothing sensitive skin for a more comfortable aftercare experience. Leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and nourished, creating the perfect base for make up.

oxygenating-moisturiser-50ml

We are in love with this product, the skin feels soft to touch and is well-hydrated throughout the day and continues to be plump and radiant looking.

Apply after cleansing, twice a day for best results and enjoy a beautiful, silky-smooth skin. This moisturiser soothes irritated skin and helps to remove and prevent blemishes and acne symptoms.

The Best Foundation for Acne – Prone Skin | @Oxygenetix

There’s a lot of talk around acne, skin problems and blemishes – women are running out of ideas of how to keep their skin clear – and the pressure is on. All over the globe, celebrities, models and actors promote smooth, matt skin that’s radiant, slightly tanned but before all else, healthy. Along with healthy lifestyle choices on the rise and better diet plans, acne-prone skin is still a mystery. How to look good AND keep your skin clear, moisturised and blemish-free – is the question some beauty bloggers are asking.

We have good news for you. Oxygenetix is a brand that developed the world’s first Acne Control Foundation, designed specifically to treat and soothe acne-prone skin, as well rosacea, eczema and other conditions. It includes their prime ingredient – Ceravitea™, which is found in the whole range of products. This super-charged oxygen peptide promotes the skin’s collagen cell production and connective tissue growth, working together with salicylic acid (2%) to provide your skin with all that it needs. It is hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory.

It also contains Aloe Vera Barbadensis and Vitamin E which calms and soothes the skin. It does not contain water, oil or any artificial dyes or fragrances so you can be sure that your skin really gets what it needs. This foundation is also water resistant and transfer free, making it just that much easier for you to apply your foundation and wear it all day, while protecting and healing your skin.

Get Your Confidence Back | 3 Products that will make you feel AWESOME.

Here, at Beauty is Skin Deep we know that the condition of your skin and just the way you look can really influence your mood, your well-being, your confidence…and sometimes, it can lead to anxiety or depression where you get so worried about the way you look and are not happy with the way you look so you start avoiding social situations, leaving the house, wearing make up.

However, it’s 2017. There are ways to improve your skin, wear make up and cover but treat blemishes and common skin problems within a short amount of time and without long-term procedures.

We have listed 3 products that will improve your skin so you can go back to your normal life without a worry.

  1. Oxygenetix.


    Oxygenetix products are actually specifically designed for problematic skin. Created with the aim to provide for post-treatment clients, to use for after-care for when they get done chemical peels, injections and any laser treatment. Skin is usually irritated, blotchy and red after those procedures, and the Oxygenetix foundation (Acne Control or standard) will make sure that the redness is reduced, blotches are less apparent. It provides full coverage and is incredibly lightweight. It lasts all day and is sweat -proof! Which means you can wear it to the gym, during a busy day, on the tube, on the plane and it will still be on your face in full blast at the end of the day. It is a treatment foundation, this means that it not only has all the soothing qualities but it also works in curing problematic skin and blemishes and prevents from them appearing again.
  2. Aquateal


    Personally, I’m not a fan of fake tan – the thought of having a smelly, chemical, sticky substance that’s close to chocolate colour sprayed anywhere near my face or body – no, no. no! I am quite lucky to have naturally olive skin but since living in England, my skin has become more pale, washed out…and well, there’s no sun in England! Aquateal therefore completely transformed my opinion on fake tan.It’s 100% natural, 100% vegan and cruelty free. It doesn’t contain a chemical tanning agents, and it works off the black tea extract that it is made from. Enriched with Hyaluronic Acid and range of vitamins to make sure your skin is deeply hydrated, and nourished while also looking gorgeous. Their most famous product is the Original Bronzing Water. You can apply it with a cotton pad or self-tanning gloves directly to the area where you want it. The mixture distributes over your skin evenly.
  3. Fillerina.


    Speaking of Hyaluronic Acid, I don’t need to explain why it is so good. Chances are there is some included in your existing skincare products. What makes Fillerina so good? The fact you can look about 5 – 10 years younger in just 14 days following the 14- day treatment of a filler gel and film applications, every day either in the evening or afternoon. No injections, no pain. You simply apply the gel directly into the crease of the wrinkle and dab it, wait for it to dry then apply the white fluid on top to ‘seal in’ the effect. Followed for 14 days, it gives astonishing results, as tried and recommended by no other than Alice Hart -Davis. 

New Product Launch | Available on Our Website Now | @beautyisskindeep.com

We have a brand new product range that has just launched on our website!

Meet Aquateal. A new, French brand to the UK market that is re-inventing self-tanning and sun protection! Ever wanted an instant sun -kissed glow but end up with stained sheets and skin in streaks? Or maybe you do not want that and that is why you are always pale as a sheet of paper? Now it’s all about to change!

logo-aquateal

Aquateal products are made with black tea extract, as inspired by the 1960’s where women would apply black tea to colour their legs to mimic the effect of tights, and finishing the back of the leg with a pencil to make it look like a seam. Of course, those are days of the past and tights are widely available but Aquateal took inspiration from that to create a product like no before.

EAU BRONZANTE en.jpg

Meet the best-selling Aquateal’s Bronzing Water which also won the Sante Magazine Award for its amazing qualities. It is water based liquid with black tea extract. It is 100% paraben and chemical free, made with natural ingredients – cruelty free and vegan free. It provides an instant effect of sun-kissed, evenly tanned skin in seconds and is easy to wash off at the end of the day.

You apply the Bronzing Water with a cotton pad or Special Gloves to the area of your face, neck, decolletage, arms…wherever you wish! Spread evenly and wait a couple of minutes to dry.

Voila! You are done. Enjoy your tanned, even, streak -free skin. The tan will last all day and you can simply wash it off with warm water and soap / cleanser.

lingette en.jpgThat’s not all! Aquateal also have a range of supporting products. Such as the Bronzing Water Wipes, which we -at the office – are obsessed with! The wipes are much like your normal cleansing wipes but soaked with the Bronzing Water – same one as earlier – and fit into your hand bag! If you are in a rush, and just managed to grab a taxi to a meeting that you are already late for – panic not! Use the Bronzing Water wipes and apply to your face, neck and decolletage for an even finish of sun -kissed skin. Use more than one for intensified finish.

Clear Skin for The Summer | #5 Beauty Tips | @BISD_tweets

It’s coming up to that time of year when we wear fewer clothes, less make up and our hair is mostly tied up to avoid strands sticking to our neck an face. Summer! Not too long away until we enter summer months. Wearing less make up is already good for your skin but there is so much more you can do to have a flawless, clear skin, just in time for summer.

1. Less Dairy 

lactose-intolerance.jpg

Dairy is a known allergen and a lot of people across the world avoid it at all costs because of allergies and the effects sometimes even resulting in death! Did you know though that dairy, apart from giving you an upset stomach, can actually worsen acne, eczema and other skin conditions? As much as we love our triple shot lattes and Venti cream Frappucinos, it is now really time to put those down, and reduce your intake of cheese and milk. Watch your skin get better over time, supported with plenty of water!

2. High Sun Protection Factor 

sunbathing.jpg

As beautiful the sunny weather is, and the sun is very welcoming for you to lay down and relax in its rays – they can severely dry out your skin and in result, speed up the ageing process. Invest in a good sunscreen with high SPF, and if you are stuck on where to get one, here’s a good place to start looking.

3.  Get some green down ya. 

GREENTEA_Benefits.png

Green tea has anti-ageing and antioxidant benefits that can help delay signs of skin ageing, such as sagging skin, sun damage, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Drink 2 -3 cups a day, and help your skin look more radiant. There many other benefits in tea such as improving digestion and it can help you lose weight and keep fit. It really is a drink of Gods. It is recommended to drink ‘original’ green tea rather than any flavoured green teas, as that way you will get the most out of the beverage.

4. Time to move! 

618_348_working-out-hungry-burns-more-fat.jpg

No, not to another country – although, that’d be nice, somewhere warm…

I know that you are sick of hearing it, and with the latest popular obsession with ‘gym-life’ it may have ruined the idea for you but we’re not here to tell you to go gym. Instead, take a walk into town and back instead of driving there – if possible – or just walk your dog, your neighbours dog or just to clear your head. Any sort of exercise is better than none. All you need is a minimum of 15 minutes a day to see the different and keep your skin clear.

5. Keep it clean! 

ThinkstockPhotos-484080175.jpg

Don’t fall asleep with your make up still on. Just don’t do it. Even if you are super tired and are just in your bed, scrolling through Facebook – don’t fall asleep with all those products on your face! It will dry out your skin, the toxins that your skin has been subjected to throughout the day will set in and it will only speed up the ageing process. Your skin  will not appreciate all that within a month’s time and nobody wants a herd of spots to appear just before the summery months! Cleanse, every night and every morning. Stay hydrated. Cleanse before a work out and after work out to make sure your skin is kept clean and fresh throughout your day. We’ve put together a Complete Skincare Routine Guide just for you, so you can start and end your day just right.

Tea Health Benefits | #NationalTeaDay | BISD Blog

It’s #NationalTeaDay! This means you are extra excused to drink litres of the good stuff and have a nice chilled day… But do you know how beneficial tea is for your health? We do focus a lot on the skin in this blog however, we all know that good skin comes from within and you need to look after your body well to achieve blemish-free, radiant skin.

BE ACNE-FREE

Green tea is known for reducing the sebum production and it reduces inflammation levels. It can also boost your immune system. Although, not everyone’s favourite green tea really has a lot of health benefits and we should drink the stuff in litres a day! Apart from the mentioned, it can also lower blood glucose levels and aid with digestion.

BAG ON EYES

How about some Earl Gray? Yum, yes please. But don’t throw away your teabags straight away! Cool them down, and put them on your eyes for a few minutes each day. The caffeine in the tea shrinks blood vessels and reduces puffy eyes and those much annoying under-eye dark circles.

THIRSTY?

Thirsty-Man.jpeg

As found by scientists at the King’s College London in their studies, it is all but a common mis-perception that tea is dehydrating. Large contents of caffeine are indeed dehydrating and water is always the first thing we go for when calming down that thirst, believing coffee or tea will only make it worse. However recent studies show that only large amounts of caffeine which are hard to obtain in a standard cup of coffee could lead to dehydration. Your standard Earl Gray or black tea with a little milk will still provide you with enough fluid to overall support hydration.

GET THAT SUMMER -BOD

Pic by FashionBeans.com

If you are already working out like crazy, changed your diet and are doing all you can to lose some weight just in time for summer to show off your body, you may want to throw in a few cups of green tea a day to the mix as well. Green tea is known for improving digestion and speeding up metabolism. Doctors recommend around 5 – 6 cups of green tea a day to get some slimming aid from the heavenly juice to reduce belly fat as part of balanced diet and lifestyle.
