The Crème Shop Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask With Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask with Charcoal. The product promises to detox troubled or sensitive skin so that you can wake up with renewed and purified skin – even after a short night.

How does it work? On the back of the box it says… massage an even layer into your skin – right before bedtime. Focus on dry areas, and leave the product to do its magic overnight. And wake up to hydrated and brighter skin.

I really like the idea of an overnight gel mask. However, it’s just a fancy name for a night cream. 😉 Having said that, I love the gel formula! It’s awesome fun! I’m also satisfied that this product moisturises my skin without greasing it up, and that it helps maintain my skin’s brightness. Another thing I need to mention is the soapy fragrance – it’s clean and pleasant. Nice!

All in all, I think this is a nice and fun product, and I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys a good skin care product at a reasonable price. The Crème Shop‘s Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask with Charcoal is available as 50ml for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

L’Oréal Sublimist Skin Perfection Day Moisturiser

L'Oréal SublimistHi there! Today’s post is about L’Oréal’s Sublimist Skin Perfection Day Moisturiser.

I only had this small sample, but it was enough for me to conclude this is an excellent face cream! Now let me tell you why.

When I applied the cream, I noticed the rich texture. The cream felt great on my dry skin. But I wasn’t sure if this rich cream would be a good base for make-up.

My worries were unfounded because – within a minute – the cream had sunk into my skin nicely. What remained was the feeling of a silky, lightweight moisturiser on my skin. And yes, this cream is a good base for make-up. I found the scent of this face cream to be pleasant as well. It’s not too strong – it’s just right.

The only thing I’m not super happy with is that this cream doesn’t contain sunscreen. I do like my facial moisturisers to have SPF 15. So I wouldn’t use this cream on sunny days (because my foundation doesn’t contain sunscreen). However, if you prefer a face cream without SPF, I would definitely recommend this product!

L’Oréal’s Sublimist Skin Perfection Day Moisturiser is available as 50ml for £15. As always, keep your eyes peeled for half price or BOGOF offers. 🙂
