July Beauty Awards

Hi there! The month of July is pretty much over, so it’s time for my monthly favourites post. As always, I’ve chosen my top 3 from all the products I reviewed this month, and I’ve thrown in a few honourable mentions. But let’s start with the top 3! 🙂

3rd place – Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel With Apple

So far I’ve tried 2 of Ekél’s peeling gels. I like the grape peeling gel a little more, but that doesn’t change the fact that the apple peeling gel is an excellent product that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!

Runner-Up – Thierry Mugler Alien Flora Futura

Alien Flora Futura is a magical fragrance. I’m sad it’s a limited edition, but I hope they’re going to bring it back at some point because the fragrance is just too beautiful to be a limited edition.

WINNER – Nature Love Hydrating & Soothing Hyaluronic Face Mask

Nature Love’s Hyaluronic Face Mask is the best sheet mask I’ve ever used. No other mask has made my skin feel anywhere near as hydrated as this one. 11 stars!

Onto the honourable mentions! I love Montagne Jeunesse‘s 7th Heaven Red Hot Earth Sauna Masque. I also love NSPA‘s Lemon Shower & Bath Gel and Yves Rocher‘s Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel.

Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to any of these products? Which products did you love this month? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Apple

Hi there! Today’s post is about Ekél‘s Natural Clean Peeling Gel with Apple. This product promises gentle exfoliation. You’re supposed to massage a small amount of product all over your cleansed and dry face. Then rinse, and that’s it!

I’ve previously reviewed Ekel’s Grape Peel, so I’m not just reviewing this product. I’m comparing it with its sister product as well. 🙂

First of all, a few months ago I started to use the Grape Peel as a make-up remover. I’ve been using it once or twice a week to take my make-up off right before my evening shower. And it works perfectly! I’m now alternating between the Grape Peel and the Apple Peel, and here’s what I think…

Ekél’s Apple Gel is pretty much as effective as the Grape Peel. Whilst I rub it all over my face, it balls up, thus removing make-up, dead skin cells and all sorts of gunk that clogs up pores. However, the Apple Peel doesn’t smell as yummy as the grape peel, and I’ve also noticed that the Apple Peel is a bit thinner which means it takes a bit longer for the product to be effective (=ball up).

All in all, this is a very good product, and I would recommend it to everyone. And if you love the scent of fresh apples in cosmetics, I have no doubt that you’ll love this product! 🙂

Ekél‘s Natural Clean Peeling Gel with Apple is available as 180ml. I spent £4.99 (TK Maxx).
