Mio¦ Fit Skin for Life Launch

If you've heard of the worldwide brand Mio, you may associate it with use during pregnancy (like their famous TummyRub Butter and Oil from the Mama Mio range) but they've now launched a new range- Fit Skin for Life which is designed for use (males and females) pre, during and post exercise. Here's a quick snapshot of some of the new products in the range.

This range is designed to tone, buff and beautify the skin pre, during and post exercise. "Mio Skincare is a brand that offers a positive message to all users, which is to feel confident and gorgeous in your birthday suit"!! Who doesn't want to feel gorgeous and confidence in oneself?! Mio's Fit Skin for Life includes firmers, toners, mega-moisturisers, muscle motivators and soothers- everything you need to regain your former glory in your quest for strong, smooth, gorgeously fit skin from top to toe. Mio claim that every product is a bespoke personal fitness trainer for your skin! 

'The Activist': Firming Active Body Oil* €34.95

This antioxidant body oil seals in vital moisture for strong and supple skin. The Activist contains nourishing Omegas, free-radical fighting antioxidants and vitality giving vitamins. Mio The Activist strengthens, moisturises and nourishes dry, stressed skin and has vitamins and antioxidants that restore elasticity and firmness, and also sinks in quickly! Over the years our skin's oil-producing cells begin to slow down, leading to the decline of its natural springiness and healthy radiance. Our skin needs extra helpings of strengthening superfoods to restore it to its formerly firm state. 

Apply daily to shower damp skin to seal in extra moisture and a little goes a long way! To get the full benefits, use deep, upward strokes toward the heart-boosting circulation, improving lymphatic drainage and giving your skin more oxygen and nutrients. 

'Workout Wonder': Invigorating Muscle Gel* €25.00

Think energy! This is basically an energy shot for your muscles, claims MioSkincare. Workout Wonder boosts you into action pre-workout and helps your recover quicker with an uplifting cocktail of herbs and plant extracts. A gym-bag essential! Workout Wonder energises, cools and revives muscles instantly and is ideal pre and post workout. It also eases muscle soreness and tension from daily life. It can also be used anytime- if you need an instant blast of revitalisation for your muscles. It boosts you into action so you can get the best from your workout and it helps with your recovery too. It, again, is quickly absorbed into the skin-ideal for use in the gym or at home (we are always on the run!). 

Massage one or two pumps of this muscle gel into hard working legs and achy upper back, neck and shoulders. Perfect for pre or post workout or to ease tense stressed muscles, even from such daily activities like house-work, hoovering etc.

'Liquid Yoga': Restorative Bath Soak* €31.00

This restorative bath soak relaxes and calms your busy mind while relaxing your muscles and restoring your body. This milky-moisturising blend of essential oils, mineral salts and therapeutic herbs dissolves away stress and aches. It comes with a warning- may cause relaxation and happiness! Liquid Yoga is your personal masseuse in a bottle; helping with muscle fatigue while relaxing tight, stressed shoulders and muscles. It contains Murumuru Butter- making your skin feel as good as your mind! 

Pour a good glug into a warm running bath and take some time for yourself. Why not make it a pampering evening- we all deserve one of these once a week! Stretch out your body and enjoy every minute of this precious time. **Liquid yoga contains Epsom Salts so you need to remember to SHAKE BEFORE USE**.

The Mio Fit Skin for Life range is available in:
  • Department stores including Arnotts and Debenhams, SpaceNK.
  • Pharmacies including Cara, Walshes, O'Neills, O'Connells, Faddens, Burkes, Old Bawn Pharmacy, Rathgar Pharmacy, Meaghers, Skerries Pharmacy, Maxwell Pharmacy, Bradley's, Tony Walsh.
  • Spas including The Marker Hotel, The Lyrath Hotel, Fota Island Spa, Millies Beauty Rooms, Orchard Day Spa, Dunboyne Castle, Faithlegg House Hotel, Druids Glen Spa, Seafield Golf & Spa, Revive etc. 
I found it really interesting to find out about this range. I think people tend to forget (I know I did anyway) that we need to remember to look after our skin when exercising- it's not just the food we eat! We are putting our bodies through regimes and trials so we need to give it what it 'wants', i.e. good skincare and a healthy lifestyle!

If you enjoyed reading about this new range be sure to let me know! I'd love to hear your opinions on these types of blogposts- it's something a little different!

New: Eylure Launch New Collection

If you are like me, then you probably love wearing false eyelashes for any occasion! The ones I always wear are from a brand called Eylure and my personal favourites are the No. 107. These are the ones I always go back to and wear for a really nice delicate false lash effect, perfect for a night out! I just love the Eylure false lashes as I find them really easy to apply! For the most part you simply apply some glue to the lash strip, give it about 30 secs to get 'tacky' and then apply gently to your lashline. It does take some practice to get it right but, trust me it gets easier! I can now have mine, glued, applied on and blended into my own lashes with some mascara in a minute! Yes 1 minute!! It used to take me a few minutes but now it's become second nature to me!! If you really can't get the hang of it, Eylure have a range of eyelashes that are pre-glued-perfect for people who can't master it, or if you're in a rush! Anyway, if you want a step-by-step guide or some tips or advice on how to apply these, just let me know! Okay so, on to the new collection from Eylure!!

So just recently, Eylure have launched a 'new look' to their lashes. They've changed the packaging to bring about a more edgy feel to the brand and I really like it! Compared to their older packaging, which consisted of black and white, I personally love the bit of colour but let me know what you think. They have also launched some new lash designs to their collection and here is a selection of some of their cult lashes and some of the newbies, which were added to the collection!

Eylure No. 20 RRP €6.99 'Naturals'*
A gossamer fine, evenly balanced lash for light length and fullness.
These are ideal for beginners, a perfect way to start! Eylure recommend pairing these eyelashes with a nude eyeshadow for a 'I-haven't-even-tried' daytime look!

Eylure No. 100 RRP €6.99 'Volume'*
A classic, fully laden style, for an ample, regular lash look.
These are great for filling out your lashline and adding depth! Eylure recommend applying a slick of liquid eyeliner, and a flawless base for a chic party look.

Eylure No. 117 RRP €6.99 'Texture'*
A long, angled lash with a twisty, messed up finish.
These are great for adding a bit of texture and 'oomph' to your eye makeup look! These are ideal for regular wear while also ideal for an occasion, the perfect in between.

Eylure No. 120 RRP €6.99 'Definition'*
A super spikey style with teased tips, for a look filled with attitude.
I've worn these ones in the past also, really like these ones!

Eylure No. 140 RRP €6.99 'Exaggerate'*
A very full and sleek lash with an emphasis on the outer edge.
These lashes are by far the most extravagant! They would be ideal to wear on a big night out where you'd make a real statement! These would also be perfect for a fancy dress or at a festival!

Eylure Prolash Individuals RRP €7.99*
Knot free multi length lash flares, great for a customised look.
This pack has everything you need- some short length individual lashes, medium length and long length ones too! These individual lashes are there if you just want to apply a little volume and 'oomph' to the outer corner of your lashes or anywhere you like! Simple take them off with tweezers (it makes it much easier for the individual ones) and apply a little glue and then apply the lash to your own lashline.

If you want to get your hands on the newly designed collection, it's available NOW! Stockists include Sam McCauley Chemists, McCabes Pharmacy, Shaws Department Stores, Cara Pharmacy, Mulligans Pharmacy, Healthwise and independent pharmacies nationwide.

I'm really a big fan of the new collection, especially the packaging! Let me know what you think! I'm looking forward to trying out these lashes, I'll be sure to wear them next time I'm off to an event or on a night out! Or even the more natural ones more regularly! Be sure to tweet me any pictures of you if you buy them or even better-you wearing them!! I'd love to see that! Check out the website here for more information on the products and their new launches!
