You have the choice of leaving them on all night or for 30 minutes.

The first time I used them, I left them on all night. It was a little uncomfortable at the start but I did manage to fall asleep but one came off and the other disk had moved down my cheek. So next time I just used them with a face mask and left them on a bit longer.

The first thing you notice is the cooling effect and you can also pop them in the fridge for a few minutes if you feel  like your eyes need a bit extra TLC.

Did I notice big differance, nope not really.I enjoyed using them my eyes felt refreshed and these would be perfect after a long week or with party season just kicking off these would be perfect before putting on your make-up.

Lets be honest for €1.50 you can’t go wrong.

Happy Shopping

Review PS Love to Glow Face Mask

P.S Love to Glow range is from Penney’s/Primark its budget skin care they have three products in this range mask, a serum and a moisturiser.

I decided to pick up the mask priced at €3.50.

Let’s start with the first thing you notice the packaging for €3.50 I was not expecting much but I have to say it looks expensive it comes in a box with all the details of the product and then inside you have a glass jar so I am very impressed by this.

This mask is a dupe of Glamglow YouthMud which I have never used so I can’t compare them.

Opening the jar you see straight away it a grey muddy looking mask which I applied to freshly cleansed skin using my fingers, I did have to double layer the product which surprised me as looking at the mask in the jar you wouldn’t think it .

My skin did tingle when it first went on but reading other people’s reviews they are saying it didn’t but again very important to note everyone’s skin is different.
I also liked that it had a cooling effect on my skin which I really liked, I’m not a lover of a facemask that has a heating effect on my skin so this is perfect for me.

I leave the mask on for 15 minutes it says 10 on the box but I feel it needs a little bit longer on my skin I than use lukewarm water to slowly massage and exfoliated my skin and it work you can feel the grit in the mask.

My skin always looks amazing after using this mask it leaves my skin soft, hydrated and blemish free.  I have been using this mask twice a week for over a month I feel you should never rave/ or moan about a product till you have used it over a month how you can see the effect on your skin.

I will be buying this Mask again for €3.50 you can’t go wrong.

Lots of Love

Give Your Feet a Treat

I came across these Pedicure socks in Primark/Penney’s in the P.S Love this range for €1.50 now a few years ago I spent about €15 on a pair of moisturising socks which of course got lost in the wash and I know my €15 socks are now been worn as normal every day socks by someone (my mother).

IMG_5127

I can’t say I noticed the difference between the two pairs of socks to me they both felt as soft as each other if my memory is right. So to use these socks of course you have to wash your feet 🙂 and then apply a good amount of moisturiser I like to go a bit over board and just pop the socks on I also do this just before I go to bed now I have gotten up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and didn’t slip just in case it is something you are worried about.

IMG_5131

The next morning you pop the socks off and moisturiser will be evaporated into skin now I noticed the difference in my feet in about two days they are so much softer and bye bye dry heels I stopped using it this week as my feet got badly cut from a pair of shoes again I have noticed my feet aren’t as soft and am looking forward to using them again and let’s be honest for €1.50 it’s a nice treat for your feet.

PS Love this Facial Cleanse and Massage Brush Review

I know their are loads of electric brush cleansers on the market but if don’t have the money I think this facial cleanse brush from Primark/Penneys priced at €1.50 is a great alternative.

IMG_4782

I have been using a cleansing brush for about two years now I picked my last one up in Sephora when I was in America and it was priced at $16 click here to buy but it  had a horrible accident my four year old nephew took a scissors to it, I have say I was very up-set when this happened and their is sadly no Sephora in Ireland.

IMG_4783

That same week I was in Penneys and spotted one that looked just like it except the price tag €1.50 instead of $16 I was delighted again for this price its amazing the packaging is perfect it comes with a lid for the bristle part of the brush and the other side has like silicone message pad.

IMG_4785 IMG_4784

I have dry skin just around my chin area and I also would get black heads to easily for my liking if i didn’t look after my skin.  I use the bristle part of the brush twice a week on my skin I feel it would be to much on my skin to use everyday. I wet my skin first than the brush and put on a facial wash directly on to the brush and start massaging it in circular motions on to my face now because the brush is new it is a little hard but over time it softens which to me feels nicer, I than turn the brush around around and use silicone side which gives your face a nice massage and than rinse off your face don’t forget to give the brush a good rinse.

This brush leaves your your skin glowing and feeling refreshed and removes all them horrible dead skin which ruins your make up, I like using this brush before a face mask its perfect Sunday pamper treat and for €1.50 you really can’t go wrong.

Lots of Love
