Skincare Blitz!

5 years ago

You know how it is: sometimes you forget to review certain products, or they leave you underwhelmed and you`re unsure as to whether or not you should even write a review. Then at times, the product is just so, unbelievably wrong for you that you find yourself never using it after a handful of tries.

Well, I have found myself at a point where I`ve amassed a small amount of skincare products that I have yet to write about and I thought, "why not do a short review of all of them in a single post?" And so, the Skincare Blitz was born.

1. Nude Skincare - Cleansing Facial Wash
At first, I found this cleanser to be a tad drying. But now, I find it to be perfect for my skin. It removes the last traces of makeup and leaves my skin feeling fresh after cleansing. That said, it costs £14 per 100mL bottle, plus shipping to Canada and I just don`t think this product is good enough that I would repurchase it.

2. The Body Shop - Vitamin C Microdermabrasion
This stuff works well enough, but I find it to be much too abrasive for the more sensitive areas of my face (i.e. my cheeks and my forehead). But I quite like using it around my nose, around my mouth and on my chin - the areas I find require more frequent exfoliating.

3. The Face Shop - Brightening Rice Water Cleansing Foam
I actually quite like this cleanser but it`s too much for my skin, which has decided it will be combination rather than dry at the moment. You only need a small, pea-sized amount and it`s more than enough to give you enough lather for your entire face. It has a light but pleasant scent that won`t irritate anybody`s sensitive senses. If my skin were drier, I would definitely be using this every day. It`s lovely!

4. Pure+simple - Cellular Renewal Face Cream
"On Paper," this product sounds absolutely amazing and, dare I say it, life-changing.

I love the idea of cellular renewal and although I`m not quite at the age where this is necessary, it`s always good to get a head start on anti-aging, no?

That said, I can`t, in good conscience, give this product a thorough review because I honestly only used it for a few days. Why? Because it smells absolutely awful! >.<

Granted, I do have a sensitive sense of smell, but this stuff is something else. I can`t even bring myself to open the jar up and give it a sniff so I could describe how bad it smells.

5. Marcelle Essentials - Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover Lotion

Much like Marcelle`s amazing Soothing Cleansing Water, The Eye Makeup Remover Lotion is also very effective. Unfortunately, it doesn`t quite remove product all from my lower lash line well; But everything else, including mascara, is removed really well.

6. The Face Shop - Oil Specialist Enriched Cleansing Oil
Mother of pearl, this stuff is thiiiick! I kind of assumed that it would work like the Shu Uemura or MAC cleansing oils, but this product does not emulsify at all. So it`s just, oil. Oil on your skin. Oil that doesn`t really come off. >.<

I`m thinking of using this in my baths, actually...
