Alpha Keri Body Slimfit Bust Lift & Firm Cream Review

Alpha Keri Body Slimfit Bust Lift & Firm Cream Review


Beauty Bloggers are regularly emailed with requests to trial and review a plethora of different products, one of the more interesting products I have been approached to trial is the Alpha Keri Body Slimfit Bust Lift & Firm Cream.


Not to brag, but I was born pretty blessed in the breast department. Stop reading now dad. I'm content with size and shape but while I'm young and healthy, no woman would dare turn down a little further firming of their lovely wobbly bits. When I originally read weeks ago that Alpha Keri claim their Body Slimfit Lift & Firm Cream* can achieve 'an invisible bra lift effect' it's sparked my interest, I was dubious sure, the logical ingredient fanatic in me knew it was likely a marketing ploy but still I wanted to try the product for myself, call me curious.

Lets look at the obvious first shall we, did this cream give me the effect of an expensive surgical boob job? Quite simply, no. Do my breasts feel firmer? Look hydrated and younger? Yes. After applying to my chest after my morning and evening shower for the last few weeks I've noticed a visible improvement in the condition of the skin over my breasts, I've noticed that my skin feels softer, healthier and quite frankly tighter. While I'm not the best at treating my body to regular moisturising I do feel like this cream is slightly more emollient than the average moisturiser designed for body use, it's lovely to apply after the drying effects of a shower, perfect for those with dry skin.

While I am ordinarily opposed to any potentially irritating ingredients in my facial skincare I am less strict about the ingredients in my body skincare, this product is fragranced but not so much so that I have experienced any skin irritation. Thankfully the mix of emollients, skin repairing ingredients, silicones and skin identical ingredients like hyaluronic acid have been included in the luxuriously creamy, yet not sticky, formula. Full ingredients include:

Water (Aqua), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Dimethicone, Sodium Acrylate/Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Dimethylacrylamide Crosspolymer, Glycerin, Hydrolyzed Adansonia Digitata (African Baobab Tree) Extract, Butylene Glycol, Artemisia Abrotanum (Southernwood Tree) Extract, Kigelia Africana Fruit (African Sausage Tree)Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Pentylene Glycol, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Atelocollagen (Marine Collagen), Glyceryl Stearate, Ceteareth-25, Ceteareth-20, Stearyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Ethylparaben, Methylparaben, 2-Bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol, BHA, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Salicylate, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal, Limonene, Parfum.

If you are in the market for a breast specific moisturiser, are interested in improving the appearance of the skin on your own breasts or are as curious as I was, try the new Alpha Keri Body Slimfit Bust Lift & Firm Cream* for yourself, I've been pleasantly surprised with my results. Keep an eye out for Alpha Keri products in all Australian Leading Pharmacies.

Inglot Cosmetics Duraline Review

Inglot Cosmetics Duraline Review

In my rather modest makeup collection sits one product that looks neither pretty or touts ten different miraculous beauty claims, yet it has quite the cult status amongst beauty aficionados and is almost always sold out in store. 


Inglot Cosmetics Duraline is easily one of Inglot's most popular products, it's a clever multitasking mixing medium in dropper form. Never heard of a mixing medium? It is generally speaking a liquid clear gel that can be mixed with makeup to alter a product's texture, finish, longevity and colour.

My favourite use for Duraline is to mix one drop into my slightly dried pot eyeliners or pomades to restore them to their original creamier texture. However, mixing mediums can also be mixed with loose pigments or eye safe glitter to allow adhesion to the skin avoiding the dreaded glitter fall out all over the undereye, intensify the colour of pigments, provide a means of customising shades, allow any pigment or powder to be applied as a long wearing liquid eyeliner, or somewhat waterproof whatever product it is combined with.

I've previously experimented with using pure glycerin as a mixing medium but haven't enjoyed the results as much as using a specially formulated mixing medium such as Duraline. Sure I do have have to spend that teeny bit extra, but a little goes a long way, the product works a treat and best of all isn't tested on animals . Full ingredients include:

Isododecane, Bis-Vinyl Dimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Hexylene Glycol.

Several brands sell their own mixing medium products such as Mac, Illamasqua or NYX but having trialled a few now my favourite remains the Inglot Cosmetics Duraline.
