– LIFESTYLE –
This blog post is well over due, I have been so busy I haven’t had time! there definitely needs to be more hours in the day. Who agrees?
Thank you so much, proto-col for sending me* these products. I AM OBSESSED. I have been using these every single day since I received them. I love how all of them do different things and you can really tell what each of them does.
Intense hydration night cream – £19.97 (on special)
Collagen facial serum – £39.95
Baked mineral colour correct – £27.95
proto-col as a brand-
I had never heard of this brand before, they definitely deserve some more recognition.
They not only have products for the face, but also products to help you recover after working out (such as supplements etc..) The brand has been supplying celebrities, professional athletes and members of the public for 15 years! (that is crazy!!)
I can see why these are pretty pricey because they are really good products. If you know that they work then they are definitely worth the money.
I love this pink colour. The baked colour corrector has 9g of product inside which isn’t too bad.
As it is a colour corrector you can see all of the different colours inside. All of the colours come together in order to make your face look as natural as possible, so to blend everything out nicely and make it look flawless. It is quite chalky, which I don’t particularly mind, but once you give your brush a swirl there is some fall out. I use it all over my face after my foundation, just to make everything blend well and cover up anything that needs covering up. I have really been liking using this because I like that it calms down all of my uneven skin tones on my face, which does bug me a lot. I do have quite a naturally red face so I do try to use a lot of this.
I like that the outside packaging of the product is like a mirror because I found this really useful. Also I like the shape of the product, it is like a dome shape. I do sometimes find it hard to open, so I have to sometimes use my teeth.
Suitable for all skin types
The packaging for both the box packaging and the product packaging is really similar to the night moisturiser. The packaging of the bottle is really different to anything I have ever used before.
I use this before I used the night moisturiser and they work really well together. This product has a really cool lid, you twist the top silver bit to the side and the nozzle from inside pops up. You do have to hold the silver bit otherwise it will scroll back down. The bottle is plastic, even though at first I did think it was glass. There is all of the essential writing on the face of the bottle and half of the bottle has a ‘frosted glass’ look which I love. There is 30ml of product inside and the shelf life is 12m.
I really like what this does to my skin, it really brings my skin to life and keeps it hydrated. I have really sensitive skin and this hasn’t reacted to my skin at all, which makes me happy. The consistency isn’t thick, in fact it is like a gel which I like. It blends into the skin really well and it doesn’t linger on your fingers. I can’t really describe the smell but if I had to I would say it smells like medicine but with a sweet smell.
Suitable for all skin types.
Made from the highest quality ingredients including collagen, royal jelly and essential oils.
I do really like how simple the packaging is, and it has everything on the outside that you need. It isn’t covered in lots of pieces of information all of that is left on the box, but the most important parts are on the bottle.
Again, I love the whole frosted glass look I think this is really cool. You can tell that proto-col have been really original and created packaging that I have never seen before. Inside this night cream you get 50ml and it has a shelf life of 12m. I have really sensitive skin and this has worked amazing for me. I have been using it every night for about 3 weeks and my skin hasn’t been dry (PERFECT FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR!!!) The liquid comes out more like a foam and then it blends as a normal moisturiser would. It isn’t thick and is the perfect consistency. It smells abit floral but also smells abit soapy. (if you havent noticed I’m not the best at explaining smells)
Suitable for all skin types.
Paraben free formulation.
Moisture rich ingredients including plant-derived collagen and hydrolysed silk protein.
With this nozzle you don’t have to twist the silver bit, you just push down the top and the liquid comes out of the little nozzle. I definitely prefer this to the other lid as you won’t lose product when the silver bit twists downwards.
If you are looking for a duo skin care then the serum and the night cream are definitely worth the money, especially during these colder months when you need to keep your face moisturised. If you are looking for a great colour corrector / a powder (that will sort out your uneven skin tones) then this is for you.
Have you heard of this brand before?
