FOY skincare review

I was kindly sent out some FOY skincare products to review and I couldn't wait for them to arrive. I never knew what products I would get sent but when I opened my parcel I couldn't have been happier to see what I got inside. I got sent FOY moisturising day cream, Rejuvenating night cream, Micellar cleansing water, Eye contour gel.
About the brand
FOY stands for foundation of youth.
The skincare was originally developed to provide post-operative treatment for patients undergoing surgery and non-invasive, aesthetic procedures. The formulations were developed to provide patients with products that would allow them to prolong the results of their treatment at home. Clients found their skin to be renewed, smooth, supple and radiant.
F.O.Y. has now advanced into a range of eight salon skincare products created in collaboration with professional aestheticians, perfected by scientists and tested by dermatologists.
Produced especially for the needs of mature skin, F.O.Y. is formulated with superior, advanced active ingredients that have been carefully selected to restore, repair and rejuvenate, while being gentle to the skin.

How many ml of product do you get
My opinion
This is a really nice day to day moisturiser. When I applied it onto my skin I felt like it was adding moisture. I use this product most days as it doesn't break me out and it hydrates my skin. I only use a light layer of this and the product absorbs well into the skin.
I have dry patches on my skin (around my nose) and when I apply makeup I have noticed that those areas aren't as obvious.

How many ml of product do you get

I don't really have a lot of fine lines around my eyes (I am 19) but I have noticed that my skin does feel a lot more firmer since using this product.
My overall opinion on FOY products
On the whole I am really happy with the products that I got sent as I genuinely like all of the products and I will continue to use them. My favourite product out of the four is the Micellar Cleansing water, as you can quickly remove your makeup with this product.

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…

The powder puff is latex free
Before I use this sponge I dampen it as foundation, concealer blends out better when doing so.
To create the flawless finish I bounce the sponge off my skin it also stops y…
