Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Review*

I was lucky enough to be sent some products from the Joan Collins Timeless Beauty collection a couple of months ago and I am finally ready to tell you all about them!

When I think of Joan Collins I think of sophistication and glamour, so I was very excited to try out her beauty range! The two products I received were the I AM WOMAN Dry Oil Body Polish and the TEN EFFECTS Skin Treat & Makeup Fixer. When I first opened the box my draw dropped, I couldn't believe how luxurious the packaging looks.

So first up lets talk about the body polish as this is what intrigued me the most out of the two products. It is made by blending 3 plant oils (olive, avocado and golden jojoba) with Himalayan salts and kiwi water. Even just typing that makes me want to go and bathe in it! The oils are said to be favourites of Joan and let me tell you, it is heavenly. I use it every day now in the shower after my usual shower gel and I love it. It has a beautiful floral smell and it's one of those things that makes you ask everyone to feel your arm just to show them how soft you are! And as if this product wasn't brilliant enough, it only costs £18! I honestly thought it would be £30 or more so you are getting a real bargain here.

Now onto the TEN EFFECTS Skin Treat & Makeup Fixer. I wish I could love it as much as the body polish but unfortunately I don't. It's basically a setting spray that is also supposed to be good for your skin. This is what it promises on the bottle:

Super Hydrates
Refines Wrinkles
Minimises Pores
Improves Tone
Adds pH Balancing Layer
Calms Redness
Locks Makeup

On the first day I used this I was really impressed with how it kept my makeup on all day, especially my foundation which is usually the first to go. However after wearing it a few more times I found it made my skin look quite oily and shiny. It also had the tendency to feel a bit sticky. My mum also tried this product and was disappointed as she was hoping it would help with her pores but she didn't see much improvement and it also made her eye makeup quite runny. We also were really un keen on the smell. The product contains rose water but the smell of it was very over powering.

So although I was disappointed with this product, I am still in love with the body polish and would really love to try out some more items from the Timeless Beauty range, especially the makeup! I think I should also mention that it is cruelty free which makes it even better! 

Thanks for reading! Have you tried any of the Timeless Beauty range?

*The products mentioned were given to me for review however all opinions are and will always be, 100% my own.
