Olay Eye Transforming Cream


Olay Total Effects 7in1 Eye Transforming Cream is a daily eye treatment with a proven vitamin-rich complex that defies 7 signs of ageing around your eyes for a younger-looking around-eye area.

I've been after an eye cream for a while now. Using an eye cream is one of those things that many people either forget to use or just generally miss out the step in their daily routines. 

"Eye creams are formulated specifically for the delicate skin around the eye, so they tend to be thicker. They contain more oil than a regular facial lotion, and they have a lot of active ingredients aimed at the problems we see around the eyes,"
- Dermatologist Patricia Farris -

Personally I am naturally prone to dry skin and therefore moisturising is a key step of my morning and evening routines, this eye cream is super thick and nourishing. I have found using this eye cream specifically great for my sensitive skin also. This eye cream is also supposedly good for helping your skin look younger - this is not something I use the eye cream for but it's an added benefit I guess!

It visibly smooths fine eye lines and eye wrinkles, reduces appearance of dark circles, enhances brightness around the eyes, reduces the look of puffiness, instantly evens skin tone appearance, smooths and evens skin texture, replenishes moisture. 

I'd definitely recommend checking out this product or just investing in a eye cream in general.

Blueberry Drizzle Cake


One of my favourite cakes to make, and to eat, is a gooey lemon drizzle cake, however with no lemons in the fridge but some spare blueberries and blueberry jam...I thought I'd try out a blueberry drizzle cake! This honestly turned out so well. 

Ingredients
  • 4oz or 115g or 1/2 cup = butter 
  • 6oz or 170g or 3/4 cup = caster sugar 
  • 2 eggs egg 
  • 6oz or 170g or 3/4 cup = self raising flour 
  • 2 tablespoons of milk 
  • Handful of blueberries (and more for decoration)
  • 1 tablespoon blueberry conserve (or jam)
  • 5 rounded tablespoons of icing sugar 
  • 4 tablespoons of water



Directions (for the cake mixture)
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 170c or 338f and line your loaf tin with some sort of greaseproof paper 
  2. Add the butter and sugar into the mixing bowl, and mix together until white and creamy. 
  3. Grate the rind off the lemon into a separate small bowl; and whisk together with the milk and egg. 
  4. Add this mixture a little bit at a time to the already creamed butter and sugar. 
  5. Next, sift the self-raising flour into the bowl and fold it into the mixture. Make sure you have no lumps of flour in the mixture.
  6. Pour half of the mixture into the tin, add a handful of blueberries to the top and then add the other half of the mixture
  7. Bake in the oven for approximately 45 minutes. 

Directions (for the syrup)

  1. When the cake mixture is baking, take the blueberry conserve / jam and water - then add the icing sugar. Bring the mixture to the boil until it thickens slightly. Leave to cool, and it should become syrupy. *If the drizzle is too watery, add more icing sugar. If the drizzle is too thick, add more water.)
  2. While the cake is hot prick it all over with something like a fork & pour the syrup mixture over the top. 
  3. Add more blueberries for decoration!
