I very kindly recently received some skincare products from cult 'Beauty without surgery' brand Transformulas, and so as it is a fairly new brand to Kathryn's Loves, I thought I would to a '
Trying Out' style post, introducing the products and what you can achieve without having to go under the knife or a needle!
Starting with the eyes, we have the Transformulas Marine Miracle Eyezone, which is an Advanced Eye Concentrate. This skin-perfecting eye cream has been formulated to visibly smooth and firm around the eye area, as well as reducing dark circle. I am 35 and I don't have wrinkles as such yet, but I do have a couple of smile lines around my eyes and I definitely get dark circles, which I believe is hereditary, but as I am adopted I am not entirely sure. The Eyezone comes in a spherical little green chrome pot, and you receive 10ml for £34.00, which is around the average size for eye creams.
Marine Miracle Eyezone has a delicate texture to it, which I much prefer in an eye cream due to the delicate area it is being applied to and is suitable for all skin types. With an eye cream, I always recommend using a tiny amount gently dabbed around the eye socket using your ring finger, which is the finger which will apply the least amount of pressure. This eye cream is going to strengthen and firm the skin, and has a unique formula of marine plant extracts and five times ultra-concentrated Aldavine, which is proven to increase cell regeneration, hydrate and moisturise the eye area. By continuously using this twice daily - once in a morning and once in an evening, you are going to see visible results, and I have already noticed a difference with my under eye circles, which are now becoming a lot lighter than they were.
The Transformulas Flawless PhotoGlow Daily Skin Radiance SPF30 (£55.00 for 50ml) is an innovative multi-tasking treatment cream that is the ultimate complexion transformer, which instantly nourishes and restores radiance, whilst correcting imperfections for a flawless finish. Formulated with the latest cosmetic drone technology (yes, you read that correctly), this treatment cream has been medically developed with targeted technology to deliver active ingredients deep into specific areas that need treating, without overloading the skin.
So, what exactly is a cosmetic drone? This is targeted technology, much like a drone would be able to be targeted, and has been developed by scientists to deliver the active ingredients exactly where your skin needs them the most. After just two weeks, the PhotoGlow will give your skin a glow increase of 100%, with an 80% luminosity increase. I also noticed that my skin tone was improved and my skin looked and felt naturally radiant and nourished. I am always looking for more products that contain an SPF, and so with the PhotoGlow containing SPF30+, I am over the moon with this. We don't live in the hottest, sunniest country around, but even on cloudy days, you should use an SPF or certainly a skincare or makeup product that already contains it.
And now, onto the lips with the Transformulas LipVolume Voluptuous (£29.00), the brand's latest, most intensive lip plumper. This wonder product gives an instant plumping effect to the lips for your best pout ever. Voluptuous comes in a chrome silver casing, which is designed like a regular lip gloss, with a slanted sponge tip applicator for easy application. The formula boosts moisture and helps to define the lips, as well as it containing a lip-caring serum, which ensures a non-sticky, yet glossy finish to the lips, so you can either wear it alone or on top of a lipstick.
Voluptuous is formulated with powerful lip-plumping peptides which are what helps to boost the volume, enhance the shape of the lips and keeps the lips well-moisturised. There is no getting away from it, this lip plumper does have a slight immediate sting to it, like many other lip plumping products, but it doesn't last very long and so is very bearable and comfortable to wear. I have really quite fine lips, especially my top lip, and whilst I would love plumper lips, having them done surgically is not really something I would want, and so this is definitely the next best thing!
