Quickmax Eyelash Growth Enhancer

Quickmax Eyelash Growth Enhancer

When I was asked to try out this Quickmax Eyelash Growth Enhancer from StyleLux I thought it sounded too good to be true. After all, if there was a product out there that could really promise longer, thicker darker lashes we’d already be using it right? Quickmax contains a patented combination of ingredients that claim to rejuvenate the growth cycle of your lashes (or eyebrows). It has also been developed to help build up the tissue that anchors your lashes, so the tissue retains the lashes longer and gives them more time to grow. The ingredients in QuickMax include an advanced hair-growth enzyme, plus a natural hair-follicle stimulant to make the enzyme work faster. The formula also contains hyaluronic acid which helps to stimulate new hair growth. Quickmax claims that you will start to see the initial results in 7-10 days, but that you should allow 4-6 weeks to see the full effects. First of all I wasn’t really sure how quickly eyelashes actually grow, so I did a...

Emite – Professional Eyelash Curler

Emite – Professional Eyelash Curler

I have to admit that I have never tended to use eyelash curlers on a regular basis as I have never really seen much benefit from them, I prefer to use mascara to define and curl my lashes. This Professional Eyelash Curler arrived in my August Glossybox and I had already read some good reviews of it, so I was looking forward to trying it out.

I think the design and the colours of this tool make it look really stylish too. I do find that this Professional Eyelash Curler is easy to use, but occasionally the edges do touch my eye make-up whilst I am using it. Also, it is made of metal so it does feel very cold when it touches your skin. The red band is...

Glossybox – August 2013

Glossybox – August 2013

My August Glossybox arrived a couple of days ago. I’m sorry to say that the jury is still out on this one for me – the theme is ‘High Flyers’, and it’s a collection of products for the ‘girl on the go’ all sized at under 100ml so they can be stored in your hand luggage. I’m not too impressed at first glance, but my opinions may change once I have actually started testing out the products. The first item is a full-sized 15ml Tresemme Keratin Smooth 60 Second Treatment Shot which retails at £1.49. I have read good things about this treatment and while Tresemme isn’t a brand I would normally choose I am looking forward to trying this out. This Treatment Shot aims to smooth and hydrate the hair so in terms of the ‘High Flyers’ theme I would suggest this is probably a product that you would use BEFORE going on holiday, rather than taking it with you, although you may decide to use it whilst on...
