Derma V10 Pink Cactus Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I picked up at my local Poundland store – Derma V10 Pink Cactus Sheet Mask. This is a bio-degradable sheet mask with prickly pear extract and pro-vitamin B5, and it promises to nourish skin and to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

This is a leave-on sheet mask. Cleanse you skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 20 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin and follow with your normal skin care.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I liked it a lot! It’s very nourishing (but not sticky), and it had a plumping effect on my skin. I also enjoyed the subtle cactus flower fragrance.

I will buy this mask again, and based on my experience, I would recommend it! Derma V10 Pink Cactus Sheet Mask is available as a single-use face mask for £1 (Poundland).

Hi there! Happy Sunday. Today’s post is my weekly blog recap. Read on if you’re wondering what I’ve been up to on my blog this past week.

Monday 12 Oct – Nail Of The Day
Tuesday 13 Oct – Garnier Pure Active Anti-Blackhead Deep Pore Wash

Monday’s post was a Nail Of The Day post. Click here to read it.
On Tuesday I reviewed a face wash. Click here to read the post.

I didn’t get around to post after Tuesday. Work, health and life is a bit too much at the moment. So this is already it for this week. Next week is face mask week – simply because I have quite a few reviews which I’ve never published. Thanks for stopping by! ♥

Garnier Pure Active Anti-Blackhead Deep Pore Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Garnier Pure Active Anti-Blackhead Deep Pore Wash which I’ve been using since last month.

This face wash is enriched with salicylic acid and purifying zinc, and it’s aimed at people with oily to combination skin that’s prone to blemishes, imperfections, spots or blackheads. My skin is dry and sensitive, but it’s prone to spots, so I wanted to give this product a try. And the promise of unclogged pores also lured me in…

I think this is an OK face wash. But I don’t think that it really helps with spots or imperfections. It has a mild exfoliating effect – but it’s too mild to actually do anything. So based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend this product.

If you’re interested, Garnier Pure Active Anti-Blackhead Deep Pore Wash is available as 150ml for about £3.69. I bought it when it was on special (save 1/3 offer).

Nail Of The Day – Essence Shine Last & Go 47 Forget The Rules & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 53

Hi there! Happy Monday! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Shine Last & Go 47 Forget The Rules (2 coats). This is a great slimey green shade. It’s perfect for Halloween-themed manis. 🎃👻

For the images I used my MoYou London Festive 53 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

If this mani looks familiar, this is because I’ve done similar manis in the past. 🙂

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Cleanup AHA Fruit Toner

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Elizavecca Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Cleanup AHA Fruit Toner. As you can tell by its name, this product promises to give skin the ultimate deep cleanse. I’ve been using this product for a few weeks now, and here’s what I think.

I’m using this toner right after I come out of the shower in the morning. I use it 3 days on, 1 day off. Why this? Because it’s insanely powerful. This toner sucks the grease and grime right out of my pores – and I’m not kidding! It’s also the best skin brightening product I’ve ever used. It’s absolute madness – in the best possible way!

I also love the packaging of the product. The bacteria look cute, but they also look like they know that their days are numbered. So, I’d say the packaging reflects the power of the product it houses!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this product to everyone. Just be careful – this is powerful stuff, and please check the ingredients to make sure there’s nothing you’re allergic to.

I paid £9.99 (TK Maxx) for this Elizavecca Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Cleanup AHA Fruit Toner.

Revisiting Old Favourites – Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo & Conditioner. I used to like these products very much, but with new products being launched all the time, I haven’t gotten around to revisit these old favourites in years – until now! And here’s what I think!

Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo is lovely! It does feel like liquid silk, and the amazing fragrance (like a mix of silk and velvet) is just perfect. I’m enjoying this shampoo very much.

Gliss Liquid Silk Conditioner is really nice too. It’s not the best conditioner on the planet, but it’s better than average at making my hair feel soft and silky. I also like that the beautiful fragrance lingers in my hair for hours. Nice!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these products. Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo is available as 250ml, the Conditioner is available as 200ml. I paid £1 each (discount store).

Nivea Love Fun Times Pink Grapefruit Caring Shower Gel, Nivea Love Splash Aquatic Caring Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I picked up from Poundland – Nivea Love Fun Times Pink Grapefruit Caring Shower Gel and Nivea Love Splash Aquatic Caring Shower Gel. I’ve given them a try, and here’s what I think.

I love all things grapefruit, so I was looking forward to try Nivea Love Fun Times Pink Grapefruit Caring Shower Gel. However, this shower gel has a random pink scent (more floral than citrusy), so it was not what I wanted, and I wouldn’t buy it again. On a positive note, the shower gel felt good on my skin.

Onto Nivea Love Splash Aquatic Caring Shower Gel! This shower gel is too masculine for me. It has a strong and manly marine fragrance (although this one has a touch of citrus – my guess is bergamot). My husband enjoys this shower gel, and I’m happy for him to finish it.

Nivea Love Fun Times Pink Grapefruit Caring Shower Gel and Nivea Love Splash Aquatic Caring Shower Gel are avaiable as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (Poundland).

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipsticks 130 Love Me, 250 Stare At Me, 260 I Want You

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 lipsticks I’ve been wearing on and off for a few weeks – Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipsticks in 130 Love Me, 250 Stare At Me, and 260 I Want You.

First up is Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick 130 Love Me which is a creamy raspberry kind of shade. The lipstick is highly pigmented, and it stays on for hours, but the colour isn’t right for me, so I will let this one go.

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick 250 Stare At Me is my favourite of the 3. It’s a creamy brown-tinted red. It looks like the natural colour of my lips – just 2 shades darker. I love this one, and I will keep it!

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick 260 I Want You should have been a favourite, but this shade of brown is way too dark for me. I’m a pale girl, and a lipstick this dark makes me look ill. I will have to let this one go.

I’m happy that I will keep one of these lippies, but I don’t mind letting the others go. I’m having a major clearout – which will go on for a little while. On a positive note, I’ve already chucked 50+ (overdue) items, and there will be more.

By the way, you can now recycle empty make-up packaging through TerraCycle. If you don’t like a lipstick or an eye palette, just remove the actual product and take the packaging to your nearest participating store (Boots, Superdrug, etc.). TerraCycle will then take care of taking apart your old compacts (or whatever) and recycle the individual components! 😍
