Fragrance Review: Calvin Klein Eternity Air for Women EDP

Hi everyone,

I have recently decided to treat myself to a new fragrance. I decided to get a bottle of the Calvin Klein Eternity Air for Women, as I don't think I have fragrances like it in my collection.

The Calvin Klein Eternity Air for Women is a light, floral, fruity fragrance. This also has fresh oceanic feel to it. I've always enjoyed fragrances that either have an sense of water and/ or air, and that also has a lovely fresh vibe to them.

Fragrance Description

It's exhilarating, vibrant and ultimately breath taking. A modern feminine interpretation of traditional floral scents with an innovative fresh burst accompanied with dense sensuality with a Cedar wood base, which is conveyed through the Sky of the Sky accord.

Fragrance Notes

Top Notes
Grapefruit, Blackcurrant & Sky of the Sky accord

Middle Notes
Peony, Muguet & Pear

Base Notes
Cedar, Ambergris & Musk

You can smell some of the fruity notes once it has been sprayed on the skin, alongside the more airy notes.

This is a lovely fragrance to wear during the warmer months of the year, due to its lightness. Even though this is a light fragrance, it's an EDP which means it should last on the skin for a longer period of time. I like to wear this fragrance when I'm a little unsure of fragrance I would like to wear for the day, as it's a just a little something to make me feel more put together; and it's also a fragrance that isn't overpowering and headache inducing.

I would really recommend this fragrance if your looking for something that is light, but also at the same time is a pleasure to wear day to day.

Review: Boots No.7 Hydra Luminous Overnight Recovery Gel Cream

Hi everyone,

Around early Spring 2019 Boots No.7 launched the Hydra Luminous range, and I picked up a few products when it had first launched as this range really interested me due to it being a more hydrating range from No.7. I've already reviewed the Water Concentrate from the same range, and I'm going to review for you the Hydra Luminous Overnight Recovery Gel Cream.

I've recently introduced the Hydra Luminous Overnight Recovery Gel Cream into my evening skincare routine. I've found this to be a similar product to the Lancome Energie de Vie Overnight Sleeping Mask, only with a slightly thicker consistency but it still sinks into the skin straight away.

- Visibly fresh looking & glowing skin from the first morning
- Is formulated with No7's Hydra Drench Complex, powered by naturally derived plant hydration, to instantly infuse the skin with fresh hydration 
- The lightweight gel cream, with the power of nourishing cream feels light & weightless on the skin & instantly absorbs without stickiness. Skin feels intensively quenched, refreshed & re-energised. The weightless pollution shield provides an invisible barrier against pollution particles that can damage skin & dull the skin's natural glow
- Containing antioxidants & Bisabolol, the gel cream helps to support the skin's natural recovery from the days environmental stresses
- Overnight rehydration + Pollution Shield Technology for skin that looks visibly fresh & glowing from the first morning
- Suitable for sensitive skin

I'm really enjoying using the No.7 Hydra Luminous Overnight Recovery Gel Cream in the evening, as it applies to the skin really easily and it sinks in straight away. When I wake up the following morning I can tell that my skin feels more hydrated and not as tight. The gel cream formula is working great with my oily/ combination skin, as it's giving my skin the boost of hydration that my skin needs, but without it being a heavy formulation. 

The one thing that I have noticed is that it does have a mild, but fresh fragrance. I'm just mentioning this as it does say that the gel cream formula is suitable for sensitive skin, but nothing about if your sensitive to fragrance in skincare.

Review: Pixi Rose Tonic

Hi everyone,

I have been using the Pixi Rose Tonic over the past few months, as part of my evening skincare routine.

This is a lovely toner to use as part of either a daytime or evening skincare routine, as it refreshes the skin while also having a mild rose fragrance. This toner also removes any dirt or debris that has collected on your skin throughout the day.


Naturally soothing and rich in nutrients, this tonic helps to tone, balance pH, minimise redness and calm skin. Rehydrates, replenishes and refreshes.
- Rose Hydrosol based toner that hydrates and neutralises skin
- Normalise hydration and gently removes any impurities
- For all skin types

Rose Flower Extract - Calms & minimises redness
Elderflower - Softens, tones & brightens
Chamomile - Soothes skin

I'm really enjoying using this toner as part of my evening skincare routine, as it does make my skin feel soft and hydrated before I continue with the other steps in my skincare routine. Also, with it being a rose toner it makes the experience of applying a toner more enjoyable due to the mild rose fragrance.

Review: Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream

Hi everyone,

I have using the Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream for the past few months as part of my morning skincare routine. 

The Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream is a lovely moisturiser to use both in the daytime, as well as in the evening as I have found this to really give my skin the boost of hydration it needs especially during the colder months of the year. It has a thick consistency, but not so thick that you can spread it across your face evenly; and it also sinks into the skin straight away and keeps it feeling hydrated all day long.


This ultra rich cream is infused with ceramides and rose oil to deeply hydrate the skin for a healthier, more supple appearance and feel. Antioxidant rich botanicals help to improve skin's elasticity while protecting it against environmental aggressors.

- Rich, luxurious formula delivers deep, long lasting nourishment. Powerful antioxidants help to fortify the skin and protect against free radicals. Quickly absorbs, improving skin's elasticity and feel.

Rose Flower Oil - Nourishes & restores
Ceramides - Provide time released moisture
Probiotics - Protect & balance

Overall I have been really impressed by this moisturiser, and it leaves my skin feeling both hydrated and nourished throughout the day, and that is without reapplying throughout the day. It does state on the packaging that you can reapply this moisturiser throughout the day if your skin needs that extra boost hydration.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has really dry skin, and is looking for something to give their skin the hydration that it needs. But this moisturiser also works well for oily/ combination skin that my also need a boost of hydration. It absorbs into the skin straight away, and it doesn't leave it feeling sticky.

A Small Beauty Haul

Hi everyone,

I've recently done a little beauty shopping, and I thought that I would share with you what I have purchased.

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate
I have been using the Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate for around two years as part of my morning skincare routine. I'm nearly out of my current bottle, so I decided that I had best buy a back up just so then it's ready to go for when I do run out. It's makes my skin feel nourished and leaves my skin looking a little more radiant.

Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil
I adore this facial oil from Dr Botanicals, and I love using it as part of my evening skincare routine. It has a very light consistency that sinks into the skin straight away, and my skin just loves this product.

Calvin Klein Eternity Air for Woman EDP 100ml
This is lovely fragrance from Calvin Klein, as it's a light fruity scent, but it also has a freshness to it. It's a really enjoyable fragrance to wear, especially during the warmer months of the year.

Benefit Cheekleaders Palette in 'Mini Pink Squad'
I've had my eye on this palette since it came out just before Christmas, as I love the shade selection as well as the compact size of the palette. I don't usually buy face palettes, but this one is lovely from Benefit as it features mini sizes of their best selling blushes, and also a highlighter shade. The blushes are Galifonia and Dandelion, and the new highlighter shade is called 'Tickle'. I actually got recommend the Dandelion blush from Benefit way back when I was in my early to mid teens, but I never picked it up until now.
