REVIEW: Benton Snail Bee Venom Ultimate Hydrogel Eye Patch

REVIEW: @bentoncosmetic Snail Bee Ultimate Hydrogel Eye Patch
Claims: Containing Saccharomyces, Bee Venom and Seaweed Extract the Ultimate Eye Patches hydrate and nourish the delicate eye area leaving it bright and supple.
Price: $28 for 30 pairs
Thoughts: If I could be convinced to use only one line of skincare I think the Snail Bee collection from Benton would be my choice, I swear by their Ultimate Serum and Essence to calm, hydrate and normalise my skin if it’s acting up. They use healthy ingredients so no silicones or PEGs and these patches are environmentally friendly because they dissolve in water!!

I have been reaching for eye patches a lot recently due to Hayfever season and these are incredible when my eyes are dry and irritated. I recommend keeping these in the fridge if you suffer from puffy eyes because they will work wonders with the combination of ingredients like seaweed and snail essence and the refrigerated hydrogel patch will instantly depuff, they adhere really well so aren’t constantly moving around too which is amazing. I find my eyes to be smoother and brighter after each use and these are perfect in the morning because your makeup will apply like a dream afterwards. After trying some disappointing eye patches I thought they were not for me but Benton have definitely convinced me otherwise.

REVIEW: Dermatica Tretinoin Subscription

Review: Subscription
What is it: Dermatica operates the UK's only dermatology compounding pharmacy providing prescription skincare through the post without the need for an expensive dermatologist consultation or GP referral.
My Prescription: Tretinoin & Hydroquinone.
My Thoughts: I was intially quite wary about this service being available to the public; not everyone is experienced in skincare and may opt for the strong stuff before trying less intense treatments first. However, those of us who want prescription creams without paying for a dermatology consultation this sounds a genius business plan. The consulation is straight foward and quick but the aspect that calmed my reservations with this service is the final step, before the prescription is written and dispatched you are required to send pictures of your face so they can assess you and make sure you're suitable for treatment. I would like to think they would decline someone not sutiable for treatment, ie an 18 year old wanting tretinoin for anti-aging. I was prescribed 0.025% Tretinoin & 4% Hydroquinone which is very gentle, I experienced zero dryness or irriation so it is good for beginners if you're worried about burning your face off, I was curious how quickly they would increase the strength and i'm glad to say it was unprompted in the following month's prescription so I am now using 0.05% tretinoin & 4% Hydroquinone.
Results: After 6 weeks of use I can see an incredible difference in my skin, not necessarily pore size but definitely the texture, congestion and pigmentation. My OH said 'your skin is looking really good' after 3 weeks of use which i've never heard him say in 10 years of being together so it's a miracle worker as far as i'm concerned. Whether long term it's a service I will keep subscribing to time will tell as £22 a month is a lot more than you would pay if you were to get an actual prescription from a doctor yourself, so you're definitely paying for the convenience. If you're wanting to try the service use code: TRIAL-BUNNY for £10 off your first month. (Not spon, just useful) #blogpost #retinol #skincare #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine

OBSESSED BY ... ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️

@itcosmeticsuki Matte CC cream - This has quickly become my everyday foundation, it’s not full coverage unless you want to layer it which I don’t, it’s lovely and lightweight on the skin and very creamy to apply unlike other matte bases which apply like rubbing sand on your face and stays put all day.

@pixibeautyuk Rose Ceramide Cream * - Ceramides in skincare help to maintain the skin barrier and retain moisture, I have been using this as a final step in my routine to help lock in all the serum and oil and my skin has been noticeably plumper and softer. The whole rose range from Pixi is fantastic!

@wetnwildbeautyuk Photofocus Pressed Powder - I’ve been searching for an affordable setting powder which doesn’t make my skin look matte, I just want a glow, it alluded me until I tried Wet N Wild for the first time. This is a great powder, at £4.50 a total bargain and available in the U.K. from

@imfrom_official Honey Mask - wow, I can’t describe my love for this mask. A. It doesn’t smell like honey which is a great thing it actually smells like banoffee 👍🏻 and b. It soothes, calms and hydrates the skin beyond anything I’ve tried in a mask before. I reached for it when I got a breakout, when my skin was falling off from retinol use and when I managed to give myself a chemical burn (don’t ask), it managed to fix them all! Highly recommend! Available from @bywishtrend

@skinnytan Wonder Serum * - This is a new launch and one I was able to try out before release, I’m not the biggest fake tanner (too lazy) but this product made it effortless, it applied like a dream and gave me the most realistic fake tan I’ve had. Dark without being any kind of tangoed, zero streaks and lasted for a week, I think it could have lasted longer but I have a very strict once a week scrub glove addiction that I can’t shake! I am definitely going to be tanning more often due to it being so easy!!
