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).

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!

Primark PS… Shine Bright Purifying Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Shine Bright Purifying Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask. This mask with charcoal promises a deep cleanse and brighter skin.

Before you start, you’re supposed to rub the sachet for a few seconds so that all the ingredients will mix. Then simply open the sachet, place the mask on your face, and enjoy the mask bubbling up for 10-15 minutes. After that, just rinse off any residue with warm water. Job done!

How’s the mask? I’ve tried a number of bubble face masks, and this is the one that produced the most bubbles. It was sensational! I also found that this mask was actually cleansing (I can’t say the same about the other bubble masks I’ve tried), and it made my skin look rosey. The effect was short-lived, but I liked how this mask made my skin look and feel.

I will go back to Primark soon, and I hope they still have this mask. I’d love to stock up! Primark‘s PS… Shine Bright Purifying Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask is available for £1.50.

October Beauty Awards

Hi there! Today’s post is about my favourite products in October. As always, I’ve chosen my top 3 from the products I’ve reviewed this month. And there are a few honourable mentions as well. 🙂

3rd place – Astor Soft Sensation Lipstick 114

I love this lipstick and I’ll be wearing it a lot this autumn and winter.

Runner-Up – Claire’s Popcorn Popcorn Flavoured Lip Balm

Claire’s Popcorn Popcorn Flavoured Lip Balm was a lovely surprise. It’s the best lip balm since My Little Pony’s melon-flavoured lip balm.

WINNER – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic

How obvious was it that this toner would be my favourite product this month?! Superdrug’s glycolic tonic has blown me away. It really is a game-changer!

Over the summer I’ve developed dark patches on my face again (it’s actually a skin condition that’s called melasma, as I found out a few months ago). Getting rid of those patches is not easy at all, but this toner got it done. I’ve already bought 4 back-up bottles. I will continue to use this toner for as long as it’s made. This is truly an 11 stars product!

Onto the honourable mentions!

I’m still enjoying my Daily Defense Pomegranate shampoo and conditioner. This is the 4th Daily Defense hair care combo I’ve tried, and they’ve all been pretty awesome. If your local bargain store stocks Daily Defense hair products, you really should pick them up!

Another product line I enjoyed is the Wonder Woman toiletries collection which I picked up at Poundland. The shampoo is clarifying, the shower gel is gentle on the skin, and the fragrance roll-on is brilliant too. The products share the same lovely fragrance – rose and powder.

Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to try them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to get in touch, and thanks for stopping by!
