100% Awesome – Caolion O2 Sparkling Purifying Soap

Hi there! Today’s post is about Caolion’s O2 Sparkling Purifying Soap. This handmade facial soap is 100% natural. It promises to purify and exfoliate the skin by getting rid of impurities. It also claims to control sebum and to tighten pores. It further promises to hydrate the skin.

A quick look at the ingredients revealed that the soap contains… charcoal powder, lavender oil, tea tree leaf oil, hyaluronic acid, olive fruit oil, jojoba seed oil, cocoa extract, coconut oil, shea butter and licorice root extract. Of course, there are a number of other ingredients, but these are the ones I consider to be the most natural (sounding) ones. 🙂

OK, why is this facial soap so awesome? When I used it for the first time, I noticed a huge difference. My skin felt and looked super clean and my pores were visibly smaller. At the same time my skin didn’t feel dry at all. I was impressed! After about 10 days I also noticed that this soap seemed to have lifted those pesky little mini-blackheads off from my nose. I was blown away!

I think this facial soap is sensational! My husband uses it too – and he loves it just as much! I would recommend this facial soap to everyone! If you don’t try it, you’re missing out!

Caolion’s O2 Sparkling Purifying Soap is available as 25g and 100g. I bought my 25g soap at Boots (where it seems to be out of stock at the moment), and I paid ÂŁ4!

Boots Botanics Skin Brightening Deep Clean Gel & Skin Brightening Toner

Hi there! I’ve previously mentioned that I’ve got drawers full of toiletries with lots of untouched stuff from ages ago. My quest to use up at least some older products before buying new ones led me to these to (g)oldies: Boots Botanic Skin Brightening Deep Clean Gel and Boots Botanics Skin Brightening Toner.

The Skin Brightening Deep Clean Gel is one of the best face washes I’ve ever had. It’s incredibly powerful at removing make-up, grease and grime; at the same time it doesn’t feel harsh at all.

I can also see that this face wash really brightens my skin. I’ve noticed that the yellow patches just above my cheek bones have disappeared within a couple of weeks. This face wash is absolutely brilliant!

The Skin Brightening Toner does a really nice job too. When I use the toner, I can feel that it does something to my face. It doesn’t burn or sting, and it also doesn’t cause redness, but I can feel that it works.

I think that this toner, in addition to the face wash, really helps brightening my skin. I use it about two to three times a week only (it’s too precious), but I can see a big difference. This toner is amazing!

Now here’s the but… Boots discontinued these products when it revamped in Botanics collection. Boots has new products which promise to brighten skin, and I will certainly try them, but no matter how good the new products are, I’ll miss these oldies when they’re gone.
