Space NK Review: Fall Beauty Edit Gift Bag 2018
The beauty gift with purchase from Space NK USA is divine!
Here’s the good-looking Space NK cosmetics bag with gold zipper and beautiful printed logo. I love this huge Space NK leather cosmetics bag with soft liner to hold delicate makeup items. I’ll get a lot of use – it can hold 8oz bottles! It’s made from soft leather-like material.
Here’s the reviews!
By Terry Stylo Blackstar Review | Full size $30
Enriched with Silk Absolute to provide ultra-comfortable wear, its lightweight creamy texture embellishes the eyes with magnetic matte to shimmering colours that can be blended, mixed or layered without creasing or fading. Its soft tapered tip glides easily for a natural or smoky eye look with no excess build-up.
IcanGWP Review: If you are looking for a luxury multitask eye makeup item, this By Terry Stylo Black Star is definitely a good candidate. It has a silky cashmere texture. It glides on effortlessly. I love it as an eye shadow, it blends so well, quick and easy to create so many looks. I also use it as an eye liner and it works brilliant!
REN Keep Young and Beautiful Beauty Shot Review | Full size $60
A liquid matrix of Hyaluronans that supercharge the skin to instantly firm, lift and plump leaving the skin dramatically smoother, tighter and more youthful. A gel-serum that instantly firms, lifts and plumps the skin to leave it looking dramatically smoother, tighter and more youthful.
To Use: Apply two or three drops to clean face. Follow with moisturizer. Reapply over moisturizer or make-up throughout the day as needed.
IcanGWP Review: This product is another great job from REN. It’s so unique and worth trying. It is so light weight that I do not feel like I put anything on my face. It is a genius product. Most reviewers think it “firms, lifts and plumps the skin”. If your skin like Hyaluronans, you will like this new way of application. A great investment to keep in your office!
Sunday Riley CEO Rapid Flash Brightening Serum Review | Full size $80
Even out skin tone and tackle the visible signs of ageing with the Sunday Riley CEO Serum. This concentrated, fast absorbing and rapid flash brightening serum works to seamlessly minimise the appearance of hyper pigmentation.
IcanGWP Review: I have a love/hate relationship with her. I love the powerhouse anti-aging and flash brightening formula. If you love her good genes, the new line’s rapid glowing skin results will sure delight you. I love the tingling sensation from Vitamin C, can’t get enough potent vitamin C skincare! You’ll sense they are working, have the proper formula, strength and pH, you can trust Sunday Riley. But the serum broke me out after continuous usage, grrr…!! I will re-purpose it as a spot treatment, gotta use this great item! Recommended for normal to dry skin.
Miriam Quevedo Sublime Gold Shampoo Review | Full size $80
From the family-run, award-winning beauty brand, Miriam Quevedo The Sublime Gold Shampoo combines a blend of precious active ingredients with state-of-the-art scientific innovation. It is free from sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, paraffin, petrolatum, and phthalates.
The deeply conditioning formula works to restore damaged hair and to deliver a healthy, replenished look, thanks to the inclusion of micronized 24k gold particles which contribute glorious shimmering highlights. A potent cocktail of vitamins, peptides, and trace elements combine to penetrate the scalp and get right to the center of every hair fiber, restoring it from the inside out to leave each lock feeling fortified, nourished, and with a sumptuous gloss.
IcanGWP Review: I adore their mask and the natural shampoo that promises to add stunning gloss and shimmering hair is very nice — in some respects. The gold thick creamy shampoo has very fine gold in it. The scent is floral and refreshing. First, we’re supposed to shake it well, and massage it in gently to create a lather. Then, leave on for 2 to 5 minutes. It lathers well but doesn’t feel very clean like most sulfate-free shampoo does. I think that my fine hair is extremely tangled in the shower. However, I like the result. It delivers salon looking soft and glossy hair (no shimmer) without weighing it down. My hair looks more defined and revived considering I colored my hair quite light this past summer and my hair is so dry.
I find it helps to pre-wash your hair when using natural shampoos. I got this trick from my salon. We can use pre-shampoo products or simply use regular shampoo but very little to make a first rinse – just to remove stubborn dirt and oil before using the natural shampoo!
Ouai Wave Spray | Full size $26
pritz it on damp or dry hair to activate natural waves, enhance texture, boost body, and give hair memory. This product is scented with Ouai No. 2 Fragrance, containing notes of Italian lemon, amber, and white musk.
IcanGWP Review: This is from the brand: When you’ve only got 15 minute to look like it took 2 hours … we got you.
Jen Atkin, the founder, also founded Mane Addicts, a site and community showcasing stylist talent and education. You can see a big picture of this brand here at Space NK. If you are using a lot hair styling products, the scent of this product is definitely a good one. It adds volume a little bit. It’s not extremely sticky or crunchy. It works good but not amazing for my straight hair. Jen is a celebrity stylist. Her clients: Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, or Chrissy Teigen. Their waves are awesome. I am sure it’s a great styling products for wavy hair. Please share! Anti-frizz Sheets $18 is a new must-try item from Ouai.
Goldfaden Facial Detox Review | Full size $65
Eliminate skin impurities with Goldfaden MD Facial Detox Clarify + Clear Mask. Created by practising dermatologist Dr Gary Goldfaden, this detoxifying mask works to close pores, reduce blackheads and banish redness. The result is a complexion that is clear and renewed.
IcanGWP Review: The clay-balm mask has an interesting Vick’s Vaporub smell (but much milder). This maybe the only clay mask I’ve tried that doesn’t dry up. I tried it for the T-zone area. The mask delivers instant and visible results. It softened the skin tremendously and clarified the clogged skin. The ingredients is quite strong (Sulphur and Camphor), try to get a sample and do a spot treatment first.
Philip B Light-Weight Deep conditioning Rinse Review | Full size $29
Smooth and detangle hair with Philip B Light-Weight Conditioning Classic Formula, a conditioner that richly moisturises hair with shea butter, wheat germ and soy proteins, while imparting a fresh, garden scent.
Apply a quarter-size dab to clean, wet hair and gently comb it through to the ends. For light conditioning, leave on for 1-3 minutes. For more intense conditioning, wrap hair in a warm towel and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse well.
IcanGWP Review: This deep conditioning rinse smells like cinnamon rolls! It’s great for winter, warm and homey! This is such a nice duo to use with Miriam Quevedo Sublime Gold Shampoo because it detangled my hair so well. I can feel that the part I conditioned is way smoother.
Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara Review| Full size $29
This mascara’s 4D Amplifier™ brush combines two brushes in one, saturating the lashes from root to tip for an easy and precise way to achieve the most dramatic looks. A single stroke can be used to create red carpet-worthy lashes. Smooth and smudge-proof, this mascara features a buildable formula that can be used to create varying degrees of drama.
IcanGWP Review: Anything Hourglass gets my attention including their new mascara. This is such a dream mascara, why did I have to spend so many years finding a perfect mascara? The sleek triangle wand is so ergonomic. The bristle is dense and the small tip is great for reaching every lash. I love to wiggle it to create a perfect lash – length, curl and volume you name it. Ladies, it stayed curled all day long. I still can’t figure out how to do a very clean job on the right eye corner, but other than that this is another worthy obsession from Hourglass. The travel size is available at Space NK for only $14!
Rodial Bee Venom Moisturiser Reivew | Full size $200
This advanced moisturiser is formulated to make the skin look younger and fresher. The blend of powerful ingredients including bee venom, vitamin C and sodium hyaluronate combine into a powerful and effective anti-ageing moisturiser.
IcanGWP Review: I’m so excited to get my hand on this bee venom moisturizer. As you may have heard that princess Kate adores bee venom. Says Dr. Karen Hammerman of Schweiger Dermatology Group, “Bee venom is often talked about due to its so-called Botox-like nature. The venom contains something called apitoxin, which can trigger a reaction similar to that of a bee sting and can relax the facial muscles, increase collagen production, and cause a rush of blood to the area it’s applied.” Yeah, let’s splash this goodie on!
I love the gentle honey scent of this cream. This is what moisturizer is supposed to do – it locks up the moisture! I can feel a thick film on my skin, thicker than Crème de La Mer. It’s great to give you an instant moisturizing boost with no greasy residue. It’s nice for makeup and I love how soft and happy my skin is. I recommend this product for winter months or for normal to dry skin since it blocked my pores. I will re-purpose it as an undereye cream instead! It gets 4.4 average review score from 24 reviewers on the Space NK’s site. They looked a lot better and have had many compliments on their mature skin. There are 52 ingredients in the list and bee venom is the last one. Several sensitive skin reviewers said no reaction to the venom.
Natura Bisse Tensolift Neck Cream Review | Full size $205
Rich cream that gives your neck and décolleté a visibly younger-looking appearance. Its cutting-edge ingredients, like micropeptides and collagen and elastin amino acids, work together to make skin look firm and supple. TENSOLIFT NECK CREAM will provide your décolleté with a flawless appearance that needs no accessorizing.
IcanGWP Review: It used to be $308 and now we can get it for $205 (happy dance). This high-end skincare product is pricey for a reason. This gem is enriched with multiple anti-aging ingredients proven to help create a younger looking neck. It promises to prevent the effects of aging on the neck, decollete and breast area.
I adore the texture of this product. Unlike many of the heavy neck creams in the market, this one is instead a very whipped cream like a nourishing elixir! It’s a fabulous mousse-like neck cream. I like the divine mint scent.
Prevention is most important to me. I can’t say that I have seen a decrease in lines but I could see slight improvement on the uneven skin. It could buy you a few years before getting a surgery lift. If you feel like the need to improve the overall appearance of your neck, see if you can get a sample before dropping the $$$.
Malin+Goetz Brightening Enzyme Mask Review | Full size $55
This rich enzyme mask is infused with pomegranate, pumpkin and ginger extracts as well as botanical AHAs and powerful antioxidants. It gently exfoliates the skin to remove impurities and dead cells while moisturizing, brightening and rejuvenating the complexion beneath for improved clarity and tone.
IcanGWP Review: Why do we need an enzyme mask? Enzymes have two primary uses in skin care: for exfoliation and anti-inflammation (phosolipase or lipase). For exfoliation, look for fruit enzymes like ginger, papaya, pineapple or pomegranate like this mask. The upper layer of your skin is mostly made of dead skin cells that have keratin protein in them. The enzyme mask can break down the keratin protein, resulting in smoother skin.
This mask has a very unique texture. The light clear gel contains natural scrubbing particles coming in all shapes and colors. I like that it has no scent and no mess to apply. For me, there’s no tingling, heat, tightening or cooling. After 15 minutes, the majority of the mask soaked into my skin and it felt hydrated, plump and soft without any irritation or reaction. Strange, but when I cleanse my face at night my skin actually looks brighter! From the ingredients, this mask is truly wonderful if you have dry skin (botanicals AHAs everyone)! They should spice up your dull skin and reveal a better glowing skin. Please note that several reviewers mentioned that the ginger aroma is strong and they felt the tingling.
Odacité Black Mint Cleanser Review | Full size $39
Enjoy deeply purified skin by using the power of Odacite Black Mint Cleanser. Formulated for oily and acne-prone skin types, this cleanser deep cleanses the skin to remove excessive oil and impurities. That helps to minimise breakouts while leaving the skin feeling clean, fresh and smooth.
IcanGWP Review: I recommend using this product in the morning. It’s so intense — refreshing, cooling and your skin is awakened with a rush of blood flow. You’ll love the invigorating peppermint and tea tree scent in the morning, I bet.
This June, NYC has banned activated charcoal from food and drinks due to an FDA ruling that prohibits it from being used as a food additive or coloring agent. Activated charcoal has been used to prevent drugs and poisons from being completely absorbed when an individual swallows them. Okay, Charcoal really is a great absorbant!
The charcoal cleanser has a black glossy liquid texture. It lathered up well. It is designed to really clean the skin from charcoal and clay – score the deep cleanse that are both purifying and detoxing. Odacite lives up its fame and received 4.9 from 8 reviewers from the Space NK site. It’s pretty addictive. I will try out the other Odacite products too now!
Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer Review | Full size $28
A pre-styler that protects, conditions, and eases styling for dry, brittle, or coarse hair.
IcanGWP Review: If you are looking for a new salon quality all-in-one heat protection spray, give it a try! Just like other Bumble and Bumble products, this product has a pleasant smell I really like this little spray bottle. This product works as it is described. My hair looks smoother, silkier but not oily. This is a bit of a step up from regular hair oil products. This is one sample that I bought in full size after I tested it out. I don’t have to wash my hands after use and my life is a little bit easier.
111SKIN Celestial Black Diamond Eye Mask | Full size $115
Revitalise and brighten the delicate orbital area under the eyes with the 111SKIN Celestial Black Diamond Eye Mask, a unique eye mask that contains diamond dust particles to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
IcanGWP Review: I adore the luxury diamond flakes, the texture and the fit of this mask. I felt weird applying it on for 20 minutes before bed. My family had a good laugh seeing seriously American football Katie in this mask. The result in the morning is a darkened under eye areas. My skin had unpleasant reaction to the alcohol.
I’m obsessed with 111SKIN Space Collection. The powerhouse 111SKIN Space collection has the brand’s patented NAC Y2 complex of antioxidant rich trios that was originally discovered and utilized in space research to combat the rapid signs of aging that affect astronauts. I highly recommend 111SKIN Space Anti Age Day Cream NAC Y2 together as a cohesive skincare regimen with 111Skin Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel NAC Y2 (reviewed here) which makes its way to my hall of fame already.
