Mask Monday: Image Skincare Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque

*AD - Gifted Sample* This Mask Monday brings you another Image masque in the form of the Image Skincare Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque, which is an exfoliating mask that makes uses of both chemical and physical exfoliators.  It's designed to brighten skin by lifting dead skin cells, leaving skin smooth and glowing.  The physical exfoliators are micro-crystals, whilst the chemicals are Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid, so a great t[...]

Mask Monday: Image Skincare Ormedic Balancing Gel Masque

Image Skincare are one of those brands that I've heard lots about but never got around to trying, so it makes sense that my first real experience of the range would start with some of their amazing masques.  I was sent three masks to try, but the Image Skincare Ormedic Balancing Gel Masque is the one I jumped on straight away as I'm going really hard at the retinols at the moment (with a mostly positive result - more on that in another post soon)[...]

Mask Monday: Temple Spa The Big Reveal

Temple Spa are a really interesting brand that kind of sit under the radar, but those who are familiar tend to have a few favourites that they rave about - I've been a long-term lover of their amazing In The Beginning cleanser (a joy to use in ever sense) and, during a big clear out over the weekend, I came across an unopened bottle of their The Big Reveal, which is an exfoliating Gommage mask, designed to brighten, smooth and soften dull skin, su[...]

Tonic15 K-Beauty Haul

There are so few beauty stores that are really enticing me lately, as it all feels a bit "same old," but K-Beauty is definitely the one thing that still gets my beauty buzzers zinging (I have no idea what that means) because there is so much newness and innovation, that it's hard not to get excited.  I was recently given a voucher to have a little beauty binge at Tonic15, a new K-Beauty online shop that stocks some fantastic K-Beauty brands, so I[...]

Mask Monday: I’m From Mugwort Mask

Welcome to my first Mask Monday of 2019! Woo! And it's a good'n as this I'm From Mugwort Mask has speedily jumped to the top of my 'most used' list due to the fact that it is absolutely brilliant.  I've always had a bit of a thing for K-Beauty, but over the past few months that's become less of a 'thing' and more of an obsession, not at all helped by the recent launch of the fantastic K-Beauty shop, Tonic15, which I mostly have to avoid as I just[...]

It’s Skin Tiger Cica Calming Range

I am obsessed with Korean skincare at the moment, I just cannot get enough and I'm really enjoying trying all sorts of new products and ranges, such as the It's Skin Cica Calming trio, which has become a go-to collection for me as it's a lovely edit of calming, soothing products that all contain various levels of Centella Asiatica, a therapeutic herb that provides an impressive host of benefits, most of which focus on repairing and maintaining the[...]

Mask Monday: QMS Medicosmetics Hydro Foam Mask

If you've ever wondered how it would feel to take a can of spray cream, rub it all over your face and use it as a mask, I have the answer! The QMS Medicosmetics Hydro Foam Mask is a treatment that's basically a thick cream that you apply and leave to intensely hydrate your skin - it is a godsend in the weather we're currently having as my skin is really struggling with the sudden drop in temperature and I find that it's times like these where you[...]

Cinch Skincare – Face It, Face Cheat and Face Cheat(er)

Cinch are a very cute skincare brand that have launched with just three products.  The packaging is pink and girly, the products multi-use, and the price point very reasonable.  I've been trying out all three for the past few weeks and have found myself reaching for two out of three products on a very regular basis - find out which two below! Face It (£12) is a 5-in-1 micellar solution housed in a pump-action bottle.  It's a really, re[...]

Mask Monday: Omorovicza Silver Skin Saviour

The Omorovicza Silver Skin Saviour is a really interesting product that the brand have recently launched.  Whilst the name doesn't actually reveal it, the Omorovicza Silver Skin Saviour is actually a mask treatment that's designed to help problematic, spot-prone skin.  It's a creamy gel that you apply as you would any mask, but it doesn't dry and it isn't a clay formula, so it's instantly intriguing! The main/key ingredients are Colloidal Silv[...]

Mask Monday: Malin + Goetz Brightening Enzyme Mask

I've had the Malin + Goetz Brightening Enzyme Mask for quite some time - the packaging pictured is the sample packaging and not the final look - and I'm only featuring it now because I initially wasn't planning to feature it at all; all the Malin + Goetz products I've tried have been great, so I was eager to give this one a go as soon as I got my hands on it, but I found myself disappointed with the result: skin felt dry and not especially smoot[...]

Five Cleansers Reviewed

During my Obagi trial (still the single best skincare experience I've ever had - life-changing is an understatement, check out my intro post here) I was limited in what sort of new skincare I could use, and being a skincare junkie, I needed something to give me that skincare high, so I went for all the cleansers and now I have lots of cleansers to talk about! The first batch consists of a great mix of five different cleansers that all have somethi[...]
