Review: Eye Of Horus Mascara and Liquid Define Eyeliner!

Suffering from sensitive eyes and fine brittle lashes, the girls who created the Eye Of Horus brand in Australia researched how the Ancient Egyptians used natural waxes and oils in their iconic eye products. They used the ancient formula as a basis for the eye makeup range to provide products that are long lasting, non-irritating, nourishing and great for sensitive eyes - avoiding the use of nasty chemicals.

I’m blind as a bat, so I have to wear glasses or contact lenses everyday. Most days I tend to wear my contacts, which isn’t great for my sensitive eyes! Add makeup into the mix, and my eyes can get pretty sore and sometimes quite itchy too. When you throw my allergies into that as well, well… let’s just say that finding a mascara and eyeliner that doesn’t irritate my eyes is a bit of a mission!
Luckily for me, my search has come to an end! All thanks to Eye of Horus Cosmetics. 
I was fortunate enough to get my hands on both the Goddess Mascara and the Liquid Define Eyeliner.

The mascara contains plant based ingredients and waxes including carnauba wax, beeswax, rice bran wax and candelilla wax. It is designed to condition, nourish and strengthen the lash structure, assisting in lash growth.
I can honestly say, that not only does this not irritate my eyes at all – it is hands down, the best mascara I have ever used! It holds a curl beautifully, is a deep, true black and makes my eyelashes look false, I love it! I will definitely be repurchasing this, you can be sure of that.

The liquid eyeliner is amazingly easy to use, it’s my favourite type too – the kinda felt tip ones that you basically can’t go wrong with! It’s unbelievably black and dries almost instantly, so you don’t have to worry about it smearing anywhere.
Overall, I am more than impressed with the Eye of Horus range so far, and the packaging is beautiful.  I have no hesitation in recommending it to everyone, check out your closest stockist here.

Review: theCream - 100% Natural, 75% Colostrum, 0% Bull!

A delectable blend of New Zealand Colostrum, Coconut/Palm wax and cold pressed oils of Organic Aloe, Rice, Orange, Apricot, Meadowfoam, Vanilla, Blueberry and Hemp with Natural Silica, Zinc Oxide, Organic Bentonite clay and Colloidal silver.
Loaded with naturally occurring vitamins A, C, D, E, B1, B2, B6, B12, folic acid, 22 amino acids and trace minerals for total skin health and beauty.
Well I don’t know about you, but that sounds very impressive to say the least. But is it as good as it sounds? Check out these testimonials:

‘I love how it feels when it goes on. It’s wonderful and I am so satisfied with it!!! Thank you!!’ Lisa R
‘I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I can see the difference in my face in just two applications of theCream. My skin looks awesome. When are they coming out with a body lotion for my creepy arms and legs? Deb M
‘I have to say that of all the stuff I’ve used, it is brilliant. ‘ Evelyn A
‘Absolutely love this product! My skin hasn’t looked this great in years! Thank you theCream’. MH
After reading all the rave reviews, when the opportunity arose to try out theCream, you can be sure that I jumped at it!

The first thing that struck me was the packaging. The airless, vacuum packaging was developed especially to stop microbiotic life forms in the air from getting in and feasting on this – which would cause the product to go off. So clever!
After trying it as a lip balm (did I mention I LOVE multi-use products?!), I couldn’t wait to use it all over my face. You can definitely smell the Orange oil in this, but it is not irritating at all – and the scent does not linger, which is nice.

I’ve found that I need two pumps to cover my face, and am happy to say that it massages in very quickly, leaving my skin feeling delectably soft and smooth.  I also put it all over my lips as I said earlier, which means I don’t have to worry about using a lip balm in the mornings!

I’ve been using theCream religiously now for a month, and as usual didn’t really have any expectations about it – so you can imagine my surprise when I realised that the usual breakouts I get had become much less frequent. Seriously, I can’t remember a time when my skin looked this good. Most creams look greasy on my sensitive, oily skin, but this one is pretty unique in that it moisturises deeply, without being irritating at all. I am a definite convert!!

theCream is exclusively available in New Zealand at Health2000. Check it out for yourself, you will not be disappointed!

Thanks for viewing!
