Spascriptions Anti-Aging Spa Treatment Mask With Grapefruit & Collagen

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask (well, a set of 5 masks) that I picked up a few weeks ago – Spascriptions Anti-Aging Spa Treatment Mask With Grapefruit & Collagen. This mask promises to improve the overall health and the appearance of the skin, and it claims to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. On top of that, this mask promises to lift, firm and tone the skin, to fade age spots, and to increase skin luminosity.

How does it work? Cleanse your face before you use the mask, leave it on for 15 minutes, remove the mask, rinse off any residue – and that’s it. However, there’s also a word of warning on the back of the sachet. It’s made clear that you should not leave the mask on for longer than 15 minutes, and that you need to rinse your face immediately afterwards as otherwise you risk an allergic reaction. Scary!

Well, I used the mask anyway ( I started to read what’s on the back of the sachet after I’d put the mask on my face). So let me tell you about my experience!

First of all, I was hoping the mask would smell of grapefruits – but it doesn’t. The mask (well, the serum) has a standard cosmetical smell. It’s nice enough, but it’s nothing special.

When I put on the mask, I noticed that it felt cooling. And I really enjoyed the cooling sensation because it was pleasant and relaxing. This is what every single sheet mask should feel like!

Now… when I read the warning on the back of the sachet, I set a timer. When the 15 minutes were up, I didn’t do anything. I thought the mask felt awesome on my face, so it would be fine to leave it on for longer. However, about a minute later I noticed a slight tingling sensation. It didn’t feel scary, but I took off the mask and washed my face – just to be sure.

Then I looked in the mirror – and I saw instant results. Wow! Whilst I’m not obsessing over my fine lines, I do keep an eye on what’s happening with my face. And because of this I could tell that this mask works. The fine lines on my forehead were almost gone – my forehead looked pretty much like 3 years ago (that’s when my lines started to form). And the lines around my nose were significantly reduced – there was a huge difference to how visible these lines were under my make-up.

Whilst the effect was only temporary (it lasted for a day and a half), I’m quite impressed that this mask delivered real results. Because of this I’ll make sure to keep the other 4 masks for when I want to look fresher and younger. The occasion could be anything really – it could be a weekend away with my husband, or it could be a job interview…

In summary, I would recommend this face mask to everyone! Spascriptions Anti-Aging Spa Treatment Masks With Grapefruit & Collagen are available as sets of 5 masks for £4.99 (TK Maxx) which is a total bargain. And if you consider that 1 sachet contains enough serum for 2 to 3 uses, you can have a proper rejuvenating facial treatment at home for 33p!

So keep in mind that you can buy plain, compressed sheet masks which you can just pop into the sachets. The compressed masks will soak up the serum, so you have another sheet mask ready within a few hours, and you can be sure that you don’t waste any of the precious serum.

Have you tried this face mask? Or would you like to try it? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Good & So Sweet

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Palmolive shower gels that I picked up when they were brand-new. I wanted to try and review them asap – but that didn’t happen because I also wanted to get on top of all the toiletries that I’ve been hoarding… I was destined to fail!

Well, I’m now making an effort to use what I’ve already got (instead of stocking up). So I finally managed to try Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Good and So Sweet.
Palmolive Good Sweet
Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Good wih frangipani, neroli and mango is gorgeous. It smells floral, fruity and tropical. I also love how soft and gentle the lather feels on my skin. Fantastic stuff!

Palmolive Aroma Moments So Sweet with rooibos, rose and almond has become one of my favourite shower gels. The fragrance is sweet and cuddly… it’s 100% dreamy! I’d describe it as a floral caramel tea fragrance. Pure awesomeness!

Palmolive Aroma Moments shower gels are available as 250ml for £2 – £3. However, the more reasonable retailers run promotions all the time, so you should be able to find these shower gels for £1 each at least every once in a while.

Olay Essentials Complete Care Plus Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about the moisturiser that I’ve been using since the end of July – Olay Essentials Complete Care Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion.

This product contains vitamins B3, E and pro-vitamin B5, and it promises 24-hour hydration, protection from sun exposure (SPF 15) and more radiant looking skin.
Olay Essentials Multi Radiance Cream
I’ve been using this moisturiser for quite some time now, and I think it’s awesome! It makes my skin feel soft and well hydrated, and it’s a perfect base for make-up. I also love the light-reflecting particles in this moisturiser because they really give my skin a healthy looking glow! Another thing I love about this moisturier is its subtle & sunny mandarin fragrance – to me it smells like a sunrise in Palermo.

I would recommend this moisturiser to everyone! Olay Essentials Complete Care Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion is available as 75ml for £10. I paid £4.50 (better than half price offer, Asda).

Daily Defence Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner With Argan Oil

Hi there! Today’s review is about a hair care combo I started to use over a month ago – Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Argan Oil.

I’d never heard of the brand Daily Defense until I found a couple of shampoos and conditioners at my local Poundstretcher store. The big 473ml bottles were £1 each, and the products were cruelty-free and made in Canada. So I thought I’d be stupid not to buy them! I’ve already reviewed the other Daily Defense shampoo and conditioner combo, and now I’m telling you if these hair products with argan oil are any good.
daily-defense-argan-oil
I really like the shampoo. It’s quite runny (just like the keratin shampoo), but it feels great on my head – it’s very gentle which is really nice! Oh, and the shampoo is low in sulfate, but it lathers up perfectly well. Awesome! The conditioner is very good. It helps me detangle my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel incredibly soft and silky. I noticed a huge difference right after the first use. This conditioner made me realise how average L’Oréal’s Nutri-Gloss Crystal Conditioner and Superdrug’s Aloe Vera & Mango Conditioner were.

I think this hair care combo is outstanding! These 2 Daily Defense products are suitable for most hair types (but not oily hair), and they mop the floor with half of L’Oréal’s offerings. They’re also light years ahead of everything Pantene has ever done. And I’m saying this as someone who buys L’Oréal and Pantene products regularly. Oh, by the way, these 2 Daily Defense products smell very nice. I can’t really describe the fragrance, but it smells creamy and warm. Absolutely lovely!

If you’d like to try Daily Defense’s Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Argan Oil, swing by your local bargain stores! I bought these two big 473ml bottles for £1 each (Poundstretcher), and I’ve also seen the shampoos in jumbo bottles (probably around 900ml) for £1.49 at Home Bargains! Now go, buy and try! I’d love to hear what you think about these Daily Defense hair products!

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream for normal to dry skin. This cream contains all sorts of good ingredients, like vitamins E, A, B, F and H, as well as calcium and coconut oil. And it promises to defend the skin against environmental damage. If you read on, I’ll let you know if this cream is any good. 🙂

What can I say? This cream is fantastic. The fragrance is to die for. I’d describe it as warm, tropical and ‘high end’. This cream smells just gorgeous! I also love the formula because this cream isn’t sticky at all, and it doesn’t feel like product on my skin. This is just what I want on warm summer days!

I could spend hours raving about this product, but I won’t! All I’m going to say is… this body cream is one of my all-time favourites. If you’ve never tried it, you’ve been missing out!

Superdrug’s Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream is available as 475ml for £2.99 which is fantastic value! This product carries the Leaping Bunny logo – it’s cruelty-free and suitable for vegans!

You Need These In Your Life – Primark PS… Cellulose Facial Cleansing Sponges

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing the PS… Facial Cleansing Sponges that I found at Primark. I’ve been using one of these sponges for about 4 weeks now – and I love it! I think I love these cellulose sponges more than konjac sponges! Now let me tell you why I think that you need to try these sponges too. 🙂

I think these sponges are super easy to use – you use them just as you would use any other facial sponge or washcloth. Just apply a small amount of face wash to the moist sponge and rub it all over your face. And that’s it! I think this sponge makes my skin feel super soft and clean, however, it’s not harsh at all. This sponge is definitely suitable for daily use, and I’m sure it’s perfect for all skin types.

I also like that these sponges are easy to clean. Just squeeze out any residue under running water – job done! Another big plus is that these sponges dry quickly. Whilst I’m not sure how long it takes for these sponges to dry, my sponge is always dry when I want to use it – and sometimes I use it twice a day.

To make a long story short – these sponges are fantastic! I’d recommend them in an instant, and I’ve already stocked up (I’ll do another haul post soon). PS… Facial Cleansing Sponges are exclusive to Primark. A pack of 2 sponges is £1!

NSPA Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s The Sunniest Juiciest Tantalising Bright Pink Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel.

I’ve had this shower gel in my stash for some time. It’s almost summer, so I thought it would be the perfect time to give it a try. And now that I’ve used this shower gel for a few times, I’ve fallen in love with it.

Why is this shower gel so amazing? It makes me feel clean and refreshed, but it’s not drying. And the fragrance is… paradise! The grapefruit scent is juicy, fresh, and just so full of live. It’s not a sugary grapefruit fragrance for teenagers. No! It’s the perfect South Florida pink grapefruit fragrance.

NSPA’s Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel has been discontinued. However, I hope that NSPA will recycle the formula to give us another limited edition grapefruit shower gel.

Have you tried this shower gel? Have you tried any of the other NSPA shower gels? If so, which ones are your favourites? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading! 🙂
