Hello everyone! welcome back to another blog post. I hope you’re doing well and had a great few days since I last posted, for today’s post I thought I would tell you guys about a couple of products I recently came across from the Japanese skin care brand DHC. Back in July I was very kindly gifted these incredible products by an amazing woman called Faye who is head of the hair and make up department on a TV show here in the UK, when I was on set chatting with her she kindly gave me these products to bring home and try. When I see new make up and brands I’ve never tried before I’m like a kid in a toy shop…IN HEAVEN!! on the way home I was googling and searching trying to find reviews from other people and I was quite shocked that there was basically nothing came up, which makes me think that not many people have tried this brand? they also have a skin care range which I’m hoping to get my hands on a few things soon to try them out, after the results from the make up I have very high hopes. Anyways let’s get in to this review…
DHC Q10 BASE MAKE-UP ~ £25
Now this for me is so far my holy grail product, I’m a huge fan of bare minerals complexion rescue and the Revlon colour stay but since the day I tried this I’ve picked it up every time I’ve gone to do my make up. Being pale skinned always makes me weary when I use new products (especially ones I’ve never heard of) but I use this in the shade Natural Ocher 00 which I’m guessing is the palest shade, and honestly I can say this is the best match I’ve had to my skin colour. Since the day I tried this I’ve never looked back! I can’t even remember the last time I used my other face products. When I searched online for this product I found that it said “To Be Discontinued” my heart literally sunk, so me being the obsessive person I am I went on a huge hunt to find some bottles of this (I haven’t run out yet but you can never be too sure right? 😉 ) and little did I know they have recently brought out a newer updated version of this, how it can be updated I don’t know because this is already I N C R E D I B L E trust me.
I found that the newer version of this was only available in the US so I’m going to wait and see if it comes to the UK any time soon. If you want to check out the newer version I’ll leave the link here http://www.dhccare.com/q10-moisture-care-liquid-foundation-ex
whilst searching i finally found a few remaining products on a website here in the uk https://www.escentual.com/dhc/dhc060/?utm_term=1100611741367&utm_content=All%20Products which I am over the moon with!! i know for a foundation you might never have heard of it is a bit pricey but its worth every single penny you spend, not only does it do the job for coverage but this is packed with ingredients to improve your skin such as Collagen, Elastin etc. I’m not too sure how people with oily skin will find this as it is described more for dry skin types. The staying power of this is phenomenal, with me having the anxiety obviously there comes panic attacks which involves sweating so for me when looking for products I need something that claims to be longwearing and I didn’t really see this on the bottle but when I tried it along with my urban decay setting spray this did not move from my face at all, even by my glasses it hadn’t rubbed off and still looked as fresh as it did when I first put it on, which actually came as a shock to me because no matter what every other product seemed to come off where my glasses had been. The coverage is also amazing I suffer from a bit of redness on my cheeks and this covers it no bother and it feels so lightweight and natural and just gives you that fresh glow. if you live here in the UK you can purchase this product on the link up above, the only downside to this is there is only 3 shades which is actually a shame because I feel if there were to be more shades more people would be using this product, so hopefully they com out with more in the future!
DHC FACE COLOUR PALETTE
There isn’t much I can say about a blush, I think everyone knows that it helps give you that pop of colour back into your cheeks and just helps make your skin look more healthier and glowing. this for me isn’t my favourite blusher and unlike the foundation this isn’t something I reach for every day, I feel the colour has to be built up for it to actually look okay but it is great for that every day casual no make up look, and again it’s full of great ingredients for the skin. For me my absolute favourite is the NYX baked blushes which I will probably talk about in another post, but I can’t see myself purchasing this blush in the future. again I could not find this anywhere on sale but I do know they have other blushes available so check them out here https://www.escentual.com/dhc/make-up/face/dhc039/
And that’s it for today’s post guys! I hope you have enjoyed it I do apologise for it being short. I’m so glad that I’ve come across this brand because it’s now one of my favourites and hopefully in the future I’ll try out more of their products and skin care range. What makes this brand more interesting for me is the face that everything they create is full of things that help nourish your skin and improve appearance of that natural glow.
