*Eve Lom Hydration Serum, *Eve Lom Cult Cleanser,
*Eve Lom Eye Cream, *Eve Lom TLC Radiance Cream
Eve Lom is a brand that I have been curious to try for a long time, Its classic white packaging with the delicate gold text is something that is very appealing to me. I'm a bit of a sucker for packaging and anything that looks good on my "dressing table" is a big thumbs up for me, of course the products actually need to work as well! I luckily had the opportunity to try some, so as you can imagine I was very excited to test them out and let you guys know what I think about them.
Starting off with the Hydration Serum, this is one of my favourite products out of the lot. Its very light weight, feels lovely on my skin and of course does a fantastic job at hydrating. It absorbs very quickly not leaving my skin feeling greasy or sticky, which you can sometimes find with serums. At the time I was on a mission to reduce to size of my pores so I stopped using rich creams on my face at night. Instead I turned to this to keep my skin hydrated, it worked perfectly. I'm someone that is prone to dry skin and usually If I don't at least use a night cream I would struggle. Not only that I also noticed other benefits from this lovely product. The redness on my skin visibly reduced and the texture of my skin noticeably improved over all leaving me with clear, brighter skin. I'm a bit silly and stupidly spilled some of mine so I wasn't able to enjoy it as long as I wanted too, even then it still lasted me a good month and half using it twice a day. I also caught my mum sneakily enjoying it too! This is definitely something that I would re-purchase if I was working and earning money, but just coming out of university and this costing £75.00 I don't think it would be such a good idea. They also do a firming and radiance serum, I would definitely be interested in trying the radiance one next.
This is their cult cleanser so I was very excited to try it! I love the balm texture and how it dissolves into the skin melting away any makeup left over from my pre-cleanser. It feels extremely thick and luxurious meaning its a pleasure to use, when I use it I feel like I'm pampering myself which I love! It has lots of essential oils so it does a great job at hydrating my skin and making it feel lovely and smooth, using it along with the muslin cloth ensured that I received that extra exfoliation. One thing I must say about this product which confuses me. It does contain mineral oil, which if you are a loyal reader of my blog you will know that I really can't get on with this ingredient. However, even though it contains this ingredient I didn't see any of the affects from it such as clogged pores and leaving a film on my skin. I'm not too sure why? But overall it's a good cleanser. I didn't notice any amazing differences with my skin long term, but at the same time I enjoyed using it and my skin seemed to like it! It's pretty expensive priced from £55.00. I don't think I would re-purchase simply because it contains mineral oil and that does freak me out a little!
Now with the eye cream, a product that I absolutely love! I'm still using and enjoying it to this day. This eye cream claims to hydrate, diminish dark circles and reduce puffiness. If I'm honest I haven't seen any difference in the dark circles department but then again I do suffer with this quite badly so I wasn't expecting anything to change, maybe someone would notice a difference if they only slightly suffered with this? However what I have noticed is the texture of my skin under my eye has really improved, its a lot smoother and looks firmer. I'm pretty impressed! I have tried many eye creams, ones that cost £100 and this hasn't been the result. As well as that it does a lovely job at hydrating my eye. I would say its medium weight which is perfect for use in the morning, yet rich enough to include into my night routine. I still have plenty left and I have been using it for months, you only need a tiny bit, a lot goes a long way! This product will set you back £48 - but in my opinion it is worth it. I wouldn't re-purchase for now because there are some other brands I would like to explore and once again with my current lifestyle, it wouldn't be such a good idea.
The TLC Radiance Cream is another product that I have really been enjoying. It's a light-weight cream, which I was a bit skeptical about. Like I've said before I'm prone to dry skin so wasn't sure this would do the job. Surprisingly it works extremely well at hydrating my skin, it also creates the perfect base for make-up as well as adding a little radiance. It sinks in very nicely and doesn't feel greasy at all on the skin. My only problem with this product is that It doesn't have spf - so I think from now on I will use it for nights out or if I'm going to an event where I know pictures will be taken. I know that with some foundations you may get the spf coverage you need, but its not so great for makeup free days. This is meant to work especially well with the serum - ingredients in both of the products work well together to activate the vitamin C, which basically means it stops free radicals from destroying your skin all in all helping with anti-ageing. Other great ingredients in this are rosehip seed oil which contains vitamin A, It's a natural way of repairing skin, keeping it hydrated as well as playing a role in the reproducing collagen. This cream costs £45.00 - quite expensive for a day cream, but once again a little does go a long way. I wouldn't personally re-purchase due to their being no spf but all in all, its a great product.
