DE'LANCI Putty and Shimmer Palette Review!

I was given this product as part of a giveaway and product review team through my own accord work with DELANCI'. Although the product was won, all opinions in this review are of my own, and not influenced by this company.

De'lanci 'is a makeup company that I have come to adore. Not only do their products come from the same factories as Morphe, the pigmentation and quality for money is fabulous! I was lucky to win their new products pre-release, and after having it for a while, decided it finally deserves it's recognition!

The Putty and Shimmer palette was first released at the beginning of July! Personally I have never seen a palette like it! (If you know of any other putty eye shadows, it would be great to know!) I received this palette the middle of June, and sadly decided to lock it away for when I was in the mood to play around with it! The beginning of August, I decided it was time to whip this gorgeous palette out, and give it a go! So my first impressions of the palette were pretty simple, it's pretty, lots of matching colours and soft to the touch! But after a few months, did my impression change?

(Please excuse my editing, i'm still learning! :))

Pigmentation and Use; So, my first thought when trying the eye shadow, was with it being putty, how does it work? Well, being quite stupid, it works just the way any eyeshadow works! Nothing feels different! I made the mistake of thinking, with them being putty I'd need to really get my brush in there, when really they gave great pigment with a light touch! The pigmentation of the colours is fabulous! Although the lighter colours such as the pink and white needed doubling up, the other colours went on really good!

Price; The price of the palette stands at £21 (on Amazon with Free UK Delivery!) which is quite reasonable for the palette you are getting! Putty type eye shadows are very rare (I think?) and when you're getting 16 shimmer colours for everyday use, alongside good quality, it would be 100% worth it. Especially when DE'LANCI do price match with other familiar brands, and constant sales, you cannot go wrong!

Packaging; The eye shadow comes in 5 by 5 palette, with an abstract pattern. I personally love the packaging! It's not only lightweight, with good sized pans of eye shadow, it's easy to pop it in my bag for an on the go top up! It's very pretty and stylish compared to many brands who may have simple packaging!

When would you use this product?
The colours in this palette are my everyday tones! With my skin type and eye colour, I tend to cling to fall types such as burgundy and light pinks! This palette has allowed me to not only stick to my staple colours, but try them mixed with other colours such as gold and browns. 

Would I recommend this product?
Oh do you need to ask? 100%! Not only is it a good price, pretty packaging and gosh look at the colours? You could probably use these colours in any season (I prefer them for Fall but you could incorporate some colours into Winter and Summer!), and they are my everyday colours! If you're looking for a worthy brand with good products/dupes I recommend not only this product, but DE'LANCI as a staple brand!

Resonant Botanicals - Invigorate Review!

"I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. "

"Partners on your natural path" - Picture taken by myself.

Courtesy of Resonant Botanicals, I received this full sized product at the beginning of September! This product is from the Invigorate range dedicated towards pain relief in those with chronic illnesses! Resonant Botanicals believe in "pain and anxiety without using prescription medications, all of which contain isolated molecules that can be synthesized (and patented)." Personally, I have never tried something natural to help with my chronic pain. Maybe it's because I've always been in and out of hospital care since I was young, or because I was always so scared to try something new. But thankyou to Resonant, for allowing me to give this a go while reviewing it!

The product comes in a "pump" type container, in a metal type material. The design of the product is very simple however is due to change with being new! However, the design would not hinder me in buying it!

The price for this product ranges from $20-$55 depending on size. For something that is natural herbs and other things, this is not surprising nor is it expensive! Although you can get many similar creams from the drugstore, if you want an all natural product, you pay the price for this goodness and paying for the quality! The $20 is also travel sized, perfect to put in your purse, which may be better when us spoonies are out on the go!

Purpose and Thoughts:
Invigorate is described on the website for the use of relieving joint pain and anxiety felt via pain in the body. My first impression of the product was that it was very cooling. Recently I have been suffering with tendinitis in my shoulders and feet, but also quite bad pain in my wrists due to chronic joint pain. On the bottle it's stated to put in areas of pain, and on your abdomen for systematic relief, in which I did! Once putting it on my wrists, it felt very cooling. After several minutes, my wrists felt soothed, although not taking away full pain in my wrist, it put it at ease! For the purpose of anxiety, I don't believe it made any different to mine except when easing my anxiety about my wrist pain. With a longer use I found the product very soothing, and started to use on more areas such as my shoulders, even suggesting my father with Osteoarthritis to use it. 

Who should use it:
Anyone who suffers with joint pain or systematic pain, I would 100% recommend this to! However, I would not recommend this for anyone buying in resort of anxiety. It may be possible that another one of Resonant's products may be more suited for that, but this product is better in relieving joint tension! This product includes the ingredient MSM (Methyl Sulfonyil Methane) which may be more helpful in those suffering with joint conditions such as Hypermobility/EDS & Arthritis. (Read more on the product page!)

In comparison to other joint relief creams, it's definitely the best I've tried so far! While the smell was a bit off-putting (completely normal with the ingredients in it plus when you suffer with chronic nausea, anything can make you feel sick!), the product it's self sits happily next to my bed for those morning creaks and daily stiffness! In the future I may possibly purchase the travel size for when this chronic illness girl is on the go!
