The latest Discovery Bag goodies reviewed!
If you don’t know what the beautyheaven Discovery Bag is, allow me to fill you in:
every few months we send a parcel of goodies to a few beautyheaven members. Sometimes they receive skincare items, sometimes cosmetics, sometimes nail polishes – they never know what they’re receiving until they tear open the bag (C’mon, let’s not even pretend you open it all ladylike).
“What’s the point?” you ask?
Not only do we get to spoil you, our wonderful members, with beauty products to try, but we also get the opportunity to show you brands and products you may have never heard of before.
So let’s take a look at what was in this Discovery Bag, shall we?
BIODROGA Alpha Energising Formula Refreshing Eye Fluid
The hardworking eye cream helps to fight the signs of strain, fatigue and stress around the delicate eye area. It helps target under-eye circles and puffiness so that you look nothing but your best.
“My dark circles are no longer dark, they've lightened to light shadows now and my skin just looks more hydrated, too. I can't believe how quickly I have seen results as I've used other well-known products and had little-to-no change after a few months of use and, in a week, I have already experienced positive results thanks to this little baby!” – MissChriss.
“I've only had a short time to trial this product and I can't say that it has reduced my under eye circles (had them all my life, it's hereditary and I don't expect anything to fix them) but it definitely has helped with puffiness. Ninety per cent of the time I have none when I wake up [after using this eye fluid the night before].” – Zaralis.
“I have only been trialling this product for a week so I have been unable to determine if my dark circles have been reduced but I will continue to use it as I like the ease of application and the luxe look of the product.” – Thepinkshoe.
“I feel like I haven't had enough time getting to know this product to be able to comment on the long-term benefits.” – MsSparkles.

Philip Martin’s Shine Rose
The organic, non-greasy serum works to add shine to hair while protecting it from heat styling and keeping it soft and nourished.
“The serum gets top marks from me, a brilliant anti-frizz agent for my hair. It brings health, vitality, aroma and shine to hair. I've been using it daily and it controls flyaways and frizz.” – Neilrawson.
“The smell is absolutely beautiful! It's a light fragrance – it kind of smells sweet, like marshmallows with a hint of floral. I'd use this product for the fragrance alone!!” – MsSparkles.
“I used far too much on my dry hair and it became very greasy - lesson learnt, there's a reason the pump dispenses only a small amount of product.” – Tightrope.
“I love the fact that this product is organic and my hair feels in better condition after straightening, however, I did feel that I needed to use my iron longer on my hair to get my usual desired look.” – Rosie398.
The lipstick base coat combined with the gloss coat makes for a nourishing and highly-pigmented lip colour that lasts for up to 24 hours.
“I applied the balm immediately after application to lock the lipstick in place and after everything from eating, drinking to dancing it didn't show one sign of wear and I only applied more balm near the end of the night just for extra hydration.” – lovejane.
“The colour is wonderfully rich, intense and pigmented. This lipstick is certainly long-wearing, I barely needed to touch it up all day long. A great moisturising, long-lasting lipstick!” – Chickybabe1.
“I found that I couldn't get a perfectly crisp and smooth edge around my lips which I must have when wearing a lip colour, I just hate being able to see imperfections in the application.” – Zaralis.
The polishes give your nails that plump, glossy gel-like finish. The nail polishes are available in a variety of shades that will last for up to 10 days.
“I've had it on for five days so far and there is a little tip wear but no chipping whatsoever – and no topcoat!” – Tightrope.
“I did find this nail polish gave a thick coating, without being gluggy at all and it dried surprisingly quickly, with a glossy finish.” – Kassalee.
“At $8.95 it is slightly more expensive than some of Rimmel London's other polishes but it is still very affordable.” – Thepinkshoe.
