Talika Bubble Mask Bio Detox

I got this mask in look fantastic it’s priced at €9.95, it’s a little pricey for a mask.

This is a foaming charcoal mask, charcoal is fantastic for helping with blocked poses and blemishes and Korean Rice Wine balances the skin tone while soothing damaged skin and replenishing vital moisture.

You leave the mask on for ten minutes and it’s foams a lot, If you are looking for a sheet mask for the plane, do not buy this one. After the 10 minutes you remove the mask and massage the excess foam in and rinse.

It’s a nice a mask but it left my skin feeling dry, I prefer a mask that makes my skin feel more moisturised.

The most important question would I repurchase and no I wouldn’t.

Lots of love

La Roche Posay Make Up Remover Milk Review

I got this in a set for my Birthday all the way back in December and started using it over a month ago. I have to say I was excited when I seen this as I had heard amazing things but never tried it.

IMG_4503[1]

La Roche Posy products are all  soap-free, no parabens, alcohol-free and colourant-free they also follow a strict formulations standards: 100% hypoallergenic skincare, Non-comedogenic ,High concentration of selected ingredients and with Thermal Spring Water, minimal ingredients and fragrance, tested on the most sensitive skin.
I love the sound of all this as my skin is somewhat sensitive me and toner do not get on and if there is alcohol in it, it will sting my skin.

The application is a little different to the way I normally cleanse my skin. I pump a small amount on to my hand a little does go along way with this product and start massaging it into my skin it feels amazing. Also it removes mascara and it doesn’t sting my eyes at all.  I than remove it with cotton wool and rinse my face.

My skin feels so soft afterword’s and is shining, I love this product and will be rebuying. My skin feels and looks healthier since I started using it and I feel it really helps with my dehydration.

Its Priced at €16.49/£12.00 from boots

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.

IMG_3601[1]

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.

IMG_4300[1]

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 .

IMG_4301[1]
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.

IMG_4303[1]

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

Coconut Oil for your skin

I decided to try using coconut oil to remove my make-up in the evening.

IMG_4243[1]

First of all when I say the word oil its more of a hard oil that melts as soon as it touches your hands.

IMG_4245[1]

I slowly begin to massage it into my skin which I have to say is a lovely feeling and you can also use it on your eyes,I than use some cotton wool to remove my make up afterwords my face is shinning and very soft. I wouldnt suggest using this in the morning as to me the shine on my skin is a bit much.

I decided to try this as coconut oil as its naturally antibacterial, antifungal and  moisturizing and its nice giving my skin a break from my normal cleanser and toner.

Also I don’t suffer with spots, I would be careful if you do as this might not help, I think its very important to know everyones skin is different just because it suits mine doesn’t mean it will suit yours.

Also I have read this is amazing as a hairmask but coconut oil goes hard when its in water. I did not know this and can cause issues with your drian so be careful a friend of mine was in big trouble fro her husband as she was using this in the shower all the time and her shower got blocked.

Lots of love

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

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

This product seems to have turned into a beauty cult product I only started using Cleansing water a month ago i have always used No7 cleanser and toner and of course i have heard amazing things and wanted to know if it lived up to the hype.

IMG_4719

Lets start with the price at the moment its in boots for €6.29 for 400ml and with this product you don’t need to buy a toner or eye make up remover as it does all that all you need is cotton wool so it wins hands down on price.
Click Link below to buy

http://www.boots.ie/en/Garnier-Micellar-Cleansing-Water-400ml_1440752/

Packaging it looks fine to me my only problem is I seem to spill it every time I open it but that’s may be just me.

IMG_4718

Now down to the important part does it work, yes it does, it does what it says on the bottle its very handy I love that it takes off eye make up easily and its great for a Saturday night when you come in after a few drinks instead of reaching for the wipes. I reach for this and really gets all the heavy eye make up off, oh the same with your lips you know when you decide to go for a dark pink change your mind but have to scrub your lips to get all traces off well this is a thing of the past a wipe of this and its gone but isn’t their always a but i find it a little drying on my skin and i miss my cleanser.I admit this product is handy and I will never use a face wipe again as this product is 100% better but I think i will stick with my cleanser and toner but their is a but I will keep buying this for a Saturday night ans use my cleaner and toner mid-week.

Lots of Love

Koreas Most Wanted Memebox Review

I received Koreas most wanted Memebox  www.memebox.com  two weeks ago.

 

imageMemebox is the No 1 Korean beauty online retailer in the world and they have different boxes to choose from I decided to try Koreas most wanted and I was really looking forward to receiving this box and I was not disappointed this box was $38.99/€30.02 and I received 6 full size products.

image

This is my second Memebox the first Memebox I knew what products I was getting but this time it was a complete surprise you also get a description card because the products are in Korean.

1 Shara Shara Tinted Style Lip Gloss 4.5g $11

This is a tinted style lip gloss first thing I noticed is the packaging it is really, really cute. This is a lovely pink lip gloss I wouldn’t really wear it in the day but perfect for a night out its very perfumed but that really doesn’t bother me I just love the case.

image

 

image image

 

2 Make Up Helper Pack 23g $23

Again the packaging is amazing I love the butterflies on the case. I have been using this powder for the last two weeks I always use mac powder so I decided to give it a try and its nice powder the size of it, it is huge and the mirror is brilliant it’s so BIG great for when you are on the move the first thing you notice about this powder when putting it on is the smell it smells of roses it’s so nice in the morning getting that smell as your putting your make-up on.

image

3 Hope Girl Nail Travel Bling Bling Set 5gx3 $14

Nail polish I wasn’t mad on these colors I wouldn’t buy them but I give them a try and they wore nice on these would be perfect for holidays because of the size of the packaging but they chipped after a day and really didn’t do anything that would make them chip people did admire my nails but I wouldn’t buy this product.

4 Blithe Patting Water Pack 200ml $46

There is two products I was really excited about and this is one of so after cleansing fill ¼ sink with water and add one lid full of patting water and mix it and pat onto your skin and do not rinse off and let it absorb into your skin. There is three different patting waters I received energy yellow citrus & honey which revitalizes and brightens up the skin this also removes dead skin cells, deliver moisture & nutrition and renew the skin balance for maintaining soft, moist skin condition all sounds good I have used it a few times and my skin felt amazing afterword’s again it smells amazing.

image

5 Pure Skin Ice Cooling and Soothing Patch 5g x5ea $18

I was disappointed by this as summer is over so I can’t review it but I will give you the product description so it’s a bio cellulose patch for soothing and alleviating skin stimulated from skin exposure. The water lily extracts, menthol glacier water work to cool down the skin while the tea tree extracts work to deeply sooth irritated skin I am gonna keep this up for next summer I always get badly sunburnt I never seem to learn so this will come in handy.

This is the second product I am excited about an overnight mask I have never used an overnight mask before this mask is enriched with various organic super food ingredients such as lemon water, blueberry and broccoli extracts, Pure skins rejuvenating overnight mask works to create a protective, moisturizing barrier over the outer layer of your skin for locking in moisture and delivering abundant nutrition deep down into the skin overnight. Again the smell is amazing I love the lemon smell it’s so fresh I enjoyed putting this mask on and night and the next day my skin looked so fresh and felt amazing.

No 7 Beautiful Skin Energising Mask Review

Every Sunday I love having a pamper day hair, face, hand mask so this week I was in boots and picked up N0 7 beautiful skin energising mask priced at €16.25  www.boots.com.

This peel off mask promises to awakens skin with a burst of freshness and radiance. It will instantly rehydrate and revitalise, leaving your skin complexion looking visibly brighter sounds good to me.

image

 

One thing I have to say for €16.25 the packaging is only ok it could do with an upgrade it looks a little cheap looking.

As you can see you can see into the bottle and it’s a yellow orange liquid and it looks like it’s gonna be easy to apply but it’s sticky and it’s hard to spread on your skin I applied it to my skin and left to on for ten minutes you can feel the mask tighten on your skin and it’s hard to move your facial muscles it’s not uncomfortable but it does feel like the mask is working.

image

Than comes the tricky part peeling the mask off it doesn’t come off all together it comes off in bits it is annoying but as it comes off you really notice how glowing your skin looks and how soft it feels.

Overall I like this product it has it’s bad points but my skin looked radiant and I can’t wait to use it before I have a night out as I think my skin would look amazing.
