Blink and Go lashes

I had my Blink and Go lashes done at the Zen Lifestyle beauty networking event on the 4th of April. I need to be honest, I have always been unconvinced in trying anything more permanent than strip lashes. I’m a picker you see, constantly fidgeting with my eyes, rubbing them, picking off mascara. I also didn’t think I could pull off the whole essex lash look on a daily basis.

So what exactly are Blink and go lashes?
Here is a quick description from Zens website –
The great benefit of Blink & Go lashes is that they are quick – 20 minutes for a full set. The result is a stunning, full lash mascara’d effect. Blink & Go lashes last one to two weeks so they are great for holidays, the party season and special occasions. You can find their full details here – Blink and Go
My thoughts on the treatment: My Treatment therapist Ellie was fantastic (please let me have her name right, if not im sorry). A full consultation reassured me that I would have natural looking lashes, similar to mascara.

Before and after

The finished look was a strong but natural result (not a hint of Essex in sight). For me the best bit about the lashes was that I couldn’t feel them at all, they were super lightweight, even lighter than some mascaras. The lashes lasted me 5 days. They would have lasted much longer, maybe about 7-10 days but I’m sorry and ashamed to confess that the temptation was too much and I couldn’t help picking at them – slaps own wrists! In my defence I was very careful and loosened them with some oil beforehand. Please if you have them done make sure you go back to have them removed correctly.

I’m not sure i would have my lashes done again but I did really love the results. I just can’t be trusted not to pick.

Elemis Freshskin Tired Eyes Soothing Eye Rescue

Elemis Freshskin Tired Eyes Soothing Eye Rescue- Part of my spa at home reviews.

What they say: Refreshes, hydrates and reduces puffiness around the delecate eye area.

What we say: we all agreed that this was cooling and soothing to the eye area but couldn’t decide if it was due to it being cold and wet or due to its ingredients. I use the product more than the others and I have to say it was great for weakening up my eyes during the day when using the computer and first thing in the morning. It does refresh and give a wide awake feeling. I can’t confirm the reducing of puffiness claim and will update if this changes with continued use.
