Out with the old and in with the...old? Turn back the clock with The Vintage Cosmetics Company in 2019!

Press Samples

It's almost hard to believe that we are now on our last day of 2018. I'd ask where the year has gone, but between some traveling, selling a house, and moving back to Arizona, it has felt like quite a busy year! 2018 has been filled with many positive highs and devastating lows, and I am eager to see what 2019 has in store for us all.

If you are like me and have a knack for reflecting on the past, why not take a step future back by surrounding yourself with beauty products inspired by the past? The Vintage Cosmetics Company has caught my attention this year as their range of products pay homage to beauty goods of years past. I have two of their products to share with you today; let's check them out!

Manicure Purse

I love the attention to detail that The Vintage Cosmetic Company has put into this particular manicure purse! While the floral pattern is a delightful glimpse into yesteryear, the nod to the Union Jack, the national flag of the United Kingdom, is a glorious addition that completed the look! Each manicure purse comes with a small pair of scissors, fingernail clippers, a cuticle pusher, and an emery board.

These tools are the perfect size to get the job done when I need to give my nails a little tender loving care! The scissors have just the perfect angle to them for a close cut of hangnails while the cuticle pusher fits my nail beds perfectly to gently move my cuticles. I'm not really am emery board user as I am committed to my glass nail files, but it serves the even nails out where needed.

Once you have finished with your manicure, the tools can then be returned to their respective secure locations within the manicure purse. The purse itself snaps closed and seals well until you are ready to pull your tools out and work on your nails again. While I keep a larger set of tools at my desk for when I need to do my nails, this set is just the item I have been needing to carry around in my handbag for quick touchups, especially in the unfortunately event of nail emergencies!

At this time, I don't see this particular outer patten on the website, but The Vintage Cosmetics Company has several other beautiful options that are sure to win you over!

Make-Up Melts

Have you ever come across a product you didn't even know you needed until you tried it? That is exactly how I felt about these Make-Up Melts! Prior to my trying these out, I would normally just use a makeup wipe or soak a cotton round in micellar water to remove some of my makeup before going onto a gentle soap and water wash.While there certainly isn't anything wrong with the latter, these make-up melts are SO GOOD at removing my makeup!

Each package comes with three super-soft polyester squares: two in pink and one pink with white polka dots. These cloths are double-sided. The short-fibred side removes all traces of makeup with just the addition of water and gentle circular motions. The other side has longer fibers that serve to exfoliate your skin. If you're not the best at remembering which side is which, each of these melts has a handy little tag just in case you need a reminder so you know what side to use.

I have been using my Make-Up Melts constantly, and I have been amazed with just how well they remove my makeup! I generally don't wear waterproof cosmetics although I suspect these may not work the best for those specific products.

This is what my melts look like after I've removed my makeup. The only makeup I wear that these don't remove is my tubing mascara as the cloths don't quite add as much water as I need for removal. This isn't an issue for me as I still follow up with a gentle soap and water was to remove some excess oil and environmental pollutants that my skin has been exposed to throughout the day. After use, these cloths can get tossed in the washing machine to be cleansed for use again and again.

I have really enjoyed trying out these products, and will be sharing more on the blog later this week!

Have you tried any of these products from The Vintage Cosmetics Company? What others have you used and enjoyed? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day and I'll see you next year!
