Reducing My Oldies Stash – Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Nourishing Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 products which I’ll miss dearly when they’re gone – Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter.

Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream is one of the best shower products I’ve used all year. It cleanses my skin, but it also makes my skin feel super soft. I love it! The oriental fragrance is simply gorgeous – it’s dark, feminine and positively addictive. This product deserves 11 stars!

Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter with sweet almond oil, shea butter and argan oil is a perfect 11 too! This body butter is one of the richest body butters that I’ve ever tried. However, this body butter is absorbed quickly, and it doesn’t feel sticky at all. The fragrance is 100% gorgeous and longlasting. This body butter is simply perfect!

Unfortunately, Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter have been discontinued and replaced with lesser products. 😦

Super Facialist By Una Brennan Vitamin C + Brighten Sleep & Reveal Night Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about my current night cream – Super Facialist By Una Brennan Vitamin C + Brighten Sleep & Reveal Night Cream. This night cream promises to rejuvenate skin, to give skin a radiant glow, and to make skin feel smoother. I’ve been using this night cream since early October, and here’s what I think.

The first thing I noticed about this night cream was its citrus fragrance. I love the smell and taste of lemons, oranges and grapefruits, but this citrus fragrance is not my favourite because it’s not very natural, and it’s too strong.

I find the night cream quick and easy to use. It’s absorbed in seconds, and it feels rather light. Based on this, I think the formula is most suitable for those with normal to oily skin. I can also see that it would work well as a summer night cream. However, I don’t think it’s the best night cream for dry skin like mine – at least not for the colder seasons.

I don’t think that this night cream has had any effect on my skin texture or that it improved the look of my skin. It didn’t make my skin feel smoother, and it didn’t make my skin look rejuvenated or more radiant.

Based on my experience, I would not recommend this night cream if you have dry skin. I won’t buy this face cream again. However, if you have normal to oily skin, and you’re looking for an inexpensive night cream with vitamin C, this one might be worth a try.

Super Facialist By Una Brennan Vitamin C + Brighten Sleep & Reveal Night Cream is available as 50ml. I paid £6.99 (TK Maxx).

Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Mask which I picked up at TK Maxx. This face mask promises to hydrate and renew delicate skin and to control oil for a natural glow. In addition to charcoal, this mask contains hyaluronic acid, botanical extracts and oils.

Is this sheet mask any good? I think it’s alright, but that’s about it. I don’t think it helps with oil control at all, but it hydrates my skin nicely for about half a day. If you’re looking for an effective, purifying sheet mask with charcoal, try Boots’ own brand mask or try The Crème Shop’s sheet mask.

Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Masks are available as packs of 5 masks for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 280 Blue Slate & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM 703

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 280 Blue Slate (2 coats). This is one of my favourite Revlon nail polishes. I love everything about it!

I decided to stamp. I used Bundle Monster‘s BM 703 plate (which is part of Bundle Monster‘s awesome Secret Garden stamping plate collection.

The polish I stamped with is MoYou London‘s Scandi Sun. This polish is quite chalky which makes it difficult to pick up smaller images.

I didn’t love the mani, but I think it looked nice enough for a few days.

What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream, Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which I’ve been using for a few weeks now – Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya and Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate. Onto the review!

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream is simply wonderful. I love the fruity, sunny fragrance. It almost makes me forget how cold it’s been for the past few weeks. I also like the gentle formula. Great stuff!

Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel isn’t the most spectacular shower gel, but it is nice. The fragrance isn’t too sweet, it’s more like a red fruit and tea fragrance.

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream and Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Purple Acai Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse‘s Purple Acai Peel Off face mask.

This peel-off face mask is like any other peel-off mask. Apply it, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then peel it off, and wash off any residue with warm water.

So how’s the mask? I think it’s one of Montagne Jeunesse’s best peel-off masks. I found it very effective, and I think it even brightened my skin. The lovely fragrance is an added bonus!

Montagne Jeunesse‘s Purple Acai Peel Off face mask is exclusive to Primark where you can pick it up for 90p. In addition, this face mask carries the Leaping Bunny logo which means it’s certified cruelty-free!
