Thicker Fuller Lashes and Brows with Regenelash Lash Oil

We asked our Brand Ambasssador Ciara from Mummy’s makeup to review our new Regenelash and has been using for the last 2 months with amazing results 

“I don’t think there would be someone on the planet who would say no to fuller lashes & I’m sure there are plenty of you out there like me who grew up in the era of skinny brows 😦 so I’d say there’s a lot of us trying to fill out our brows naturally.

There are lot’s of products on the market targeted towards these particular problems but some of them can be very pricey!

Well I have been using a product that costs less than €15 and I am super impressed with it!!

Working with Beauty Belle gives me the opportunity to try lot’s of new products and I jumped at the chance to try the RegeneLash Lash Oil Regrowth Serum.

The oils ingredients are safe and natural including a complex of vitamins A, E & F which support the regeneration of hair, Vitamin A regulates the formation of keratin which is the main component of hair, Vitamin E accelerates the process of keratinization and regenerates damaged hair follicles and Vitamin F regulates hydration & strengthens the root and hair shaft.

This oil also contains Castor Oil which leaves a protective film over the hair whilst also helping in reconstructing the hair.

It comes in a teeny sized bottle with 6ml of product and in the 5 weeks I’ve been using it’s barely made a dent in product. So only the tiniest bit is needed. I’ve a feeling this could last me in total 3-4 months.

It is an unperfumed product and does not contain preservatives or dyes.

I’ve always had ok lashes but in the last year I found a lot more falling out and sparser areas. Above is before I started the oil and you can see my lashes are not very full.

For the first 2 weeks of use I applied the oil 5 nights a week onto clean lashes and I applied just using my finger & a small amount of oil rubbing mainly along the root line and any excess through my lashes & brows focusing on areas of sparseness.

After 10 days of use I noticed my lashes felt much thicker and my brows were definitely growing hair rapidly.

My lashes have definitely multiplied so there’s definitely growth of new lashes hence why they feel much fuller.

The hair on the brows were slower to start filling out. Hair started growing where I would normally tweeze but after about 4 weeks they are slowly starting to fill out and get a nice shape.

I now use the oil 3-4 times a week sometimes 5 or 6. If I remember every night I apply. This has definitely become part of my night time routine and I will continue to do so.

The Perfect Blogger and Brand Collaboration

Beauty Belle MD Michael Quinn explains what makes for a good collaboration.

Over the last 2 years I have worked with many Irish and UK beauty and lifestyle bloggers, influencers, collaborators. I have found some good, some bad and some truly exceptional and I do believe we are blessed with talent in Ireland and the UK.

We get daily requests for collaborations from beauty and fashion bloggers, so thought I would share what I would ideally like to see for a successful collaboration and becoming a regular collaborator at Beauty Belle. I now find approx 1 in 10 are interested once they read this.

I quickly can sort those just looking for some FREE products as will other brand owners, so I thought I would write some tips for collaborators looking to approach a brand.

If you just want FREE products or are not passionate about the company or brands then this will become apparent very quickly and will end up wasting both parties time.

If you aim for perfection you might just get there and WOW a brand owner. Choose the brands you love and use every day.

Before You Approach us:

1. Before you even approach the company or brand, do some research and make sure you like the brand(s) and it will work for your audience or philosophy, and preferably have used some of the products first. I will always give preference to collaborators/ bloggers who have purchased from us or use our products. That normally sorts the chaf from the wheat as how could you possibly say you love the brand if you haven’t even tried or worse still prefer using a different brand.

2. Stats are important, but not the most important thing. If you have under 500 followers, I am unlikely to consider and if occasionally we do if you show a particular passion or perhaps are already a fan of our brands or products.

So if you are chosen to collaborate this is what I would like to see:

1. Acknowledge receipt of products and share picture/ story. Don’t include other brands in picture as this is a NO NO.

2. Carry out review in a timely fashion, I would say within 2 weeks after receiving products, if not advise accordingly

3. Communication is really important throughout process and if not sure ask for clarification

4. Go the extra mile. If something is worth doing do it well otherwise don’t bother

5. Show passion for your craft, the brand and the collaboration.

Preparation is Key:

1. Preparation is everything; Do a plan, trial run and make sure you have researched product, ingredients and hashtags for company and brands used.

2. Also check if promotional offer the price and USP for the product or key benefits over comparable products

3. Write down key points to you want to cover or your strategy. E.g. If you are doing a skincare product you might need to do more than 1 or you may need to revisit blog post.

The Collaboration:

With all preparation done, you should be much more confident and ready to go

  1. Make sure appropriate appearance and look professional when behind the camera. Smile, sound and look excited to try out the products, try to add some fun and show your personality. I don’t want to hear if you are having a bad day, postpone collaboration if that is the case. See the picture above from a collaboration and see why we loved it. Not everyone is a model but be creative and showcase the product in it’s best light.
  2. Show product and include before, after pics or video (We understand not everyone wants to show legs/ body etc but show what you can as wearing or using the product speaks volumes). Remember to tag company and brands and also use appropriate hashtags. Be Creative.
  3. If it is a skincare product or treatment you will need to take before and after photos and give regular updates on results
  4. Whilst I like honesty, focus on the positives, not just the negatives as not everyone likes all products or perhaps it may not just work for you (especially skincare)
  5. Advise what you liked about the product and whether you would buy again, and whether you think it does what it says on the tin and good value for money. I call it an explainer video and this is essential.
  6. Complete a blog post; This is still important as is a permanent record of the collaboration (benefits both parties) and will attract more visitors to your blog and the brands website
  7. Write a short review on website and Facebook as well as doing an Instagram post on the grid (Most people forget to do this)
  8. If using a product over a course of weeks remember to chart progress with regular updates.
  9. Always finish with the website link, product price and advise customers of any promos (E.g. Beauty Belle Offer customers 20% Off  using Promo Code “NEWBIE”) whatever platform you are using. Oh and tell them if you recommend and would buy again.

And here are some things you must avoid:

Don’t Spread Yourself Too Thin;  We find a lot of great first collaborations but then subsequent ones are not as professional or perhaps they are spread too thin as they take on too many or they work with too many brands. Choose the brands you want to work with carefully and ensure you give them the time they deserve, otherwise don’t approach or agree to collaboration. You may feel obliged to work with lots of brands but learn to say NO. Otherwise if you agree and fail to deliver then this will be a lot worse and you will certainly not get asked again.

Products End Up in a Giveaway; My pet hate is when I get a request for a collaboration which doesn’t get done in a timely fashion or even worse when the product ends up in a giveaway sometime later. This is a cardinal sin and shows a total lack of professionalism. If you don’t have the time or can’t complete in timely fashion, my advice is advise brand of situation and reschedule or contact them to organise their return.

DON’T Include other brands; If you are doing a collaboration for a brand, work on that exclusively and do not include other brands in collaboration or pictures videos, as brand owners do not wish to see this.

Just Look for FREE Products; Find a brand(s) or companies you love and you use everyday. You will enjoy your role much more and will be rewarded in the longer term with future collaborations or ambassador roles with the brand.

Follow these steps and you are likely to be getting lots of collaboration opportunities from Beauty Belle and other brands. Failure to do so and you are unlikely to get asked again.

Do it really well and you may get asked to Guest Blog here and your blogging crudentials will improve significantly…

Hope that helps and would love to find out if you apply these in your future collaborations and they make a difference.

Emmazingmakeup Reviews QUIN Body Shine Lotion and Body Glow Dry Oil

Thanks to Emma @emmazingmakeup for doing amazing review of two of our hottest beauty products for 2019, so here she explains the benefits of these 2 fab products to give you the ULTIMATE GLOW for a night out or where you don’t want the hassle of having to go through the full tanning process.

 

 

 

 

 

 

QUIN Body Shine BB Cream Makeup Lotion:

What exactly is this BB cream? Well loads of people have asked the same question and I am here to answer this!

I have been using this cream myself for a few weeks now and I LOVE it.

Is it a moisturiser? Yes!
Is it a concealer/cover-up? Yes!
Is it an instant tan? Yes!
Does it give you a subtle and natural glow to the skin? Yes!

This bottle does ALL of these things in one. It comes in 3 different shades, light, medium and dark and these are to suit different skin tones. It has a lovely sweet fragrant smell to it and light reflecting particles in it. When you apply to the skin (I used a tanning mitt) you can instantly see the colour and coverage of it. Both are light but effective. The light reflecting particles means that it photographs lovely, giving a healthy glow to the skin. As it is a moisturiser it is kind to the skin and my own skin has been in such good condition whilst using it.

This is perfect for a last minute night out, spring/summer during the day or night or those days you feel like giving your skin a bit of a glow without doing a full tan and all the while being good for your skin! At £9.95/ €11.14 it is a bargain. A definite must try!!

SILCARE QUIN Glow Dry Oil for Body with Shimmer:

Another product I have been using and loving is this body oil. If you don’t like a sparkle (WHY not) this is not for you as it is super shimmery!

It comes in 3 shades and each are as beautiful as the next! I cannot stress how BEAUTIFUL this smells!! It smells of summer, its sweet and florally but no means sickly. This is perfect for over the QUIN BB CREAM for an extra sparkle. Or simply use on its own for a really moisturising body oil. It doesn’t clog your pores and dries pretty much instantly.

You will LOVE this once you try!

There are 4 Skin Gyms to choose from;

– Detox Skin Gym
– Sensitive Skin Gym
– Anti-Ageing Skin Gym
– Hydration Skin Gym

“My hero product for January has to be Skin Gym. It’s technically 4 products 🙂 but it’s a regime that’s a must for just after Christmas where my skin needs a lot of TLC! 4 masks over 2 weeks getting my skin back to it’s best condition.” Ciara

Ciara is currently undertaking the Detox Skin Gym to detox and re-invigorate her skin for 2019.

ERICA LOVES

This month Erica chooses 2 Timeless Truth masks which are both innovative and of the highest quality to combat the fine lines and wrinkles and dark circles and the Lip Mouth mask to hydrate and plump the mouth and lips.

 

 

 

 

 

Timeless Truth Rejuvenating  Bio Cellulose Collagen Eye Masks.

“I love using the Collagen Eye Masks as for years I’ve suffered with dark circles which in hand make me look tired especially now with a baby so I adore popping these on and they give me a instant lift.  Pro Tip pop them in the fridge to add a soothing effect and excellent for puffiness.” Erica

 

2- Timeless Truth Bio Cellulose Moisturising Lip & Mouth Mask 

 

 

“I’ve never tried anything like this before and I loved it instantly. I always have dry lips and I found this lip mask extremely soothing and hydrating.  A really great mask for the Winter months.”

We hope you get a chance to try these amazing products soon and will be back with more Hero Product recommendations in February.

Our Brand Ambassadors Top Winter Beauty Favourites Revealed

Our brand Ambassador Ciara (MummysMakeupBlog) gives us her top 5 winter recommended Beauty Belle products she uses which will help get you through the Winter season. 

I find in Winter our skin need a lot more attention and we tend to neglect certain beauty routines in the colder months.

But I’ve found 5 products that make my beauty life so much easier. Quick and simple treatments that are also so affordable.

The NAPPA FOOT MASK WITH AHA’S keeps my feet soft and free from hard skin all year round. I apply a layer to the whole foot (top & bottom) and then pop my socks on. The masks works overnight and all the product soaks in by the morning. No mess, no fuss! And you get so much product, very little is needed.
>>View Product Info

 

Nail Butter and Cuticle Butter

 

My nails can become very brittle and weak especially in the cold and if I’ve been wearing false nails too much. The QUIN PINK SHINE NAIL BUTTER is a miracle worker, even after 1 application I notice a difference. It instantly makes the nails appear healthier and stronger. After about a weeks use (once a day) my nails are so much stronger and even longer. This butter is also fantastic for softening the cuticles pre cutting. >>View Product Info

In the colder Winter months I still love to wear tan but removing it can be a nuisance sometimes! Until I started using the QUIN TWO PHASE PEELING SCRUB, its a mixture of grainy salt and avocado oil. I use this with an exfoliating mitt and any left over tan comes right off and my skin is left feeling so soft and nourished its unbelievable. I don’t even have to wearing tan to use this I just love how my skin feels afterwards. >>View Product

 

For an all year round glow I love the QUIN GLOW DRY OIL WITH SHIMMER, it’s the perfect finishing touch for a night out. Beautiful, subtle flecks of shimmer while the oil is very hydrating as it contains grapeseed oil. It soaks in very quickly with no sticky feeling and does not clog pores.
>>View Product Info

And lastly I cannot go a week without using and amazing sheet mask that I know will sort my skin out! It depends on how my skin is acting that week but 1 mask that always works for my oily/combination skin is the TIMELESS TRUTH HYDRA INTENSE BLACK CHARCOAL MASK. This mask can be used for dry and/or oily skin types and especially dehydrated skin. It helps remove impurities without drying out the skin and provides an instant burst of hydration. My skin is always left feeling so soft for days afterwards, looks healthier and more radiant. >>View Product Info
