Stratum C hand care cream review

Stratum C is the Uk's first skin care range was formed in September 2013.  The range is specifically formulated for the menopausal skin. As it contains high levels of active peptides to double collagen production, reduces existing wrinkles and replenish lost vitamins whilst using minimum preservatives. All Stratum C products are paraben, MI, artificial colouring and fragrance free using the gentlest of preservatives to protect your skin.
Stratum C do not test on animals.

I was kindly sent the hand care cream to review. Even though it is targeted for menopausal skin younger people can use it also and see the benefits. It is also the first product on the market which combines all 4 essential hand care needs: anti wrinkle, age spot reduction, nail strengthening and sun protection.

About the product and its claims
Ultimate care for mature hands providing the essential attributes to protect, nourish and rejuvenate hands and nails in one rich, non greasy, luxuriant, moisturising cream.
 Matrixyl peptides are clinically proven to boost collagen making your hands look younger by reducing the visible signs of ageing.
Keratin amino acids harden nails and help soften cuticles which are often compromised through menopause and the ageing process.
Complete 4 utilises TEGO Cosmo, a natural, bio identical ingredient proven in clinical studies to fade ageing spot and brighten the skin
Complete 4 contains FDA approved, non toxic sun protection factor (SPF) system blocking 88% of UV rays without using harmful ingredients like Oxybenzone.

What the complete 4 actually do
Rich moisturiser: Shea Butter is used as a rich moisturiser alongside Manketti Nut Oil to rejuvenate skin cells. They are also used as a base ingredient in the hand cream
Sun Protection: This cream protects your hands from 88% harmful UV rays using mild SPF ingredients which doesn't contain Oxybenzone.
Strengthens Nails and Wrinkle reducing: Softens cuticles with Keratin Amino Acids
Reduces Age Spots: Uses natural bio identical ingredient Tego Cosmo to fade age spots and brighten skin. 

How to use the product
Apply daily and massage the product into hands and nails. 

My overall opinion
Even though I am not the targeted age range for this product, I found that this product worked really well for me. I used to wear acrylic nails for years and over time they have done damage to my nails causing them to become weaker. After using this hand cream my hands have become softer, more moisturised and my nails feel less brittle. When applying the cream to your hands it feels very rich and when rubbed into your hands your skin feels softer instantly. This product is ideal for those of all ages as it works well on all skin types/ages etc even though it is targeted as menopausal skin care.

Max Factor: Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle foundation review

I was kindly sent these products to review
Max Factor is such an iconic brand that has been around for years. I can remember Nana using it and even my Mam. When I got the chance to try out some Max Factor makeup I was really happy (infact I screamed inside) When I opened the package I was really happy with what was inside. The Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle Touch Foundation. Both products claim to smooth the skin textures. Also, these products are advertised on TV and the models skin looks flawless. Anything that claims to make your skin look flawless and smooth I will try. As you all know I love a flawless, smooth and full coverage base.
Smooth Miracle Primer I 'secretly' hoped that this would have been one of the products in the package, as I really wanted to try it out. So when I saw this product I was thrilled. The bottom picture above is the primer using a small pump and on the right (which you can't see) it is blended out. I applied the primer all over my face and I…
