Layla from LaylaD contacted me recently to see if I'd like to review some of her lovely products.
Layla has always been interested in make up ever since her mum bought her 3 mini lipsticks to play with when she was a child. She studied make up in college and whilst there worked in local theatre, did wedding make up and shadowed make up artists to gain experience and build up a portfolio. Once Layla got her diploma she worked at London Fashion Week, special events and for celebrities at home and abroad.
After a bad reaction to a well known make of foundation Layla decided to create her own range of make up and skincare which didn't contain any parabens, chemicals, sulphates, toxins etc. Products are 100% natural.
The skincare range contains ingredients which have been specially blended to work with your skin. The mineral make up range is natural, oil free, anti-inflammatory and non-comedogenic.
I was sent three items to review. I've only been using them for a few days so I'll let you know my initial thoughts and I'll review them more thoroughly in a few weeks.
Aloe Vera & Seaweed Gel* (50ml - £12.99)
A cooling and soothing gel which nourishes the skin. Aloe Vera contains healing properties which makes this gel great for sunburn, blemishes or irritated skin. The seaweed the gel contains protects, stabilises oil and helps with regeneration. It can also be used as an eye gel to awaken tired eyes - I do love a multi-purpose product!
Sweet Almond Facial Oil* (10ml - £8.99)
Suitable for dry, damaged, dull, sensitive and dehydrated skin types. The oil absorbs quickly into the skin. Use 2-4 times a week or if your skin needs a boost. Apply 2-3 drops onto cleansed and toned skin and then apply day or night cream. It can also be used as a cuticle oil.
Romantic Peach Eyeshadow* (1g - £6.99)
Romantic Peach Eyeshadow is a pink/peach colour with sparkle. Suits all skin tones. This is such a pretty colour. Apply over the eyelid to brighten the eyes. A little can be used as a highlighter along the cheekbones.
Full reviews will follow on all of the above products.
