Nivea MicellAIR Skin Breathe 2 In 1 Rose Water Cleanser & Toner

Hi there! I’ve got a skin care review for you today. 🙂 This post is about this Nivea MicellAIR Skin Breathe 2 in 1 Rose Water Cleanser & Toner.

This product contains rose water, vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5. It promises to remove even waterproof makeup without harsh rubbing, to cleanse skin thoroughly for a refreshed feel, and to tone and purify the skin without drying it out.

On the back of the bottle it says that the product works like a magnet (!) that removes dirt and impurities. The result it claims to achieve is soft, smooth and healthy looking skin that can breathe.

This product works like a normal cleanser. Massage it into your skin and take it off with a cotton pad or water.

Well, this product sounds like the perfect product for anyone who wears makeup. However, I’ve been using this product since the beginning of the new year, and I don’t think that it keeps any of its promises.

When I use the product with a cotton pad, it’s not very effective. I have to use quite a bit of product to dissolve my makeup!

In addition, when I use this product I have to go over my face again and again and again… it’s not great. What makes it even worse is that the product has a strangely dull feel to it. I don’t think that this is good for anyone’s skin!

Wait, there’s more… this product doesn’t replace a toner. You actually NEED to use a proper toner after you’ve used this product because it’ll leave plenty of makeup and dirt on your face.

This product is better when removed with water, ideally with a hot cloth (although I’d still recommend you use a toner right after). However, there are better products (in the same price range) out there for this way of facial cleansing

What else? This product has a very strong fragrance. Granted, it’s from the rose water and not from added fragrance. However, I don’t like the fragrance, so this is another reason why I won’t repurchase this product. I’ll try to finish it, but I’m no longer interested in trying any other products from Nivea’s MicellAIR range.

If you’re interested, Nivea MicellAIR Skin Breathe 2 in 1 Rose Water Cleanser & Toner is available as 200ml. I paid £1.99 at Home Bargains!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads with goji berry and kakadu plum extracts. These pads promise to cleanse skin and to remove impurities, excess oil and makeup – including mascara.

They also claim to leave skin feeling softer, smoother and visibly brighter. I’ve been using these pads on and off for over a month now, and here’s what I think!

I’m enjoying these cleansing pads very much! I use them instead of a toner, and I’m happy to report that they’re effective at removing all sorts of gunk, and that they’re gentle enough to be used around the eyes (which was expected since they claim to remove mascara).

These pads aren’t as powerful as Superdrug’s Glycolic Acid Pads, but these pads are perfect if you have sensitive or delicate skin that doesn’t tolerate AHAs, BHAs and the likes, or if you want an all-in-one pad that you can use around your eyes.

Superdrug‘s Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads (which are vegan and certified cruelty-free) are available for £4.99 (for 60 pads), and most of the time there’s also a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price offer on Superdrug’s Vitamin C products!

Primark Holler And Glow Gem Fest Moisturising Printed Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s Holler And Glow Gem Fest Moisturising Printed Sheet Mask. This face mask contains coconut fruit extract, sodium hyaluronate, panthenol, witch hazel and other botanical extracts. It promises to hydrate skin deeply.
The instructions show that you’re supposed to cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. And that’s pretty much it.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. I found the mask to be deeply hydrating – without being sticky. So yeah, I’m happy to report that the mask did what it promised to do! Based on my experience, I’d recommend it!

Primark‘s Holler And Glow Gem Fest Moisturising Printed Sheet Mask is available as a 22ml single use face mask for £3. I paid £1 (special offer).

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Plumping Sheet Mask

Hi there! I’ve got a skin care review for you today, and it’s about Primark’s PS… Plumping Sheet Mask with vitamin E, panthenol, papaya fruit extract, anise extract and witch hazel. The mask promises to nourish and to plump up skin. And the actual sheet mask itself is bio-degradable – awesome stuff!

This mask is easy to use – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin and follow with your regular skin care.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! It feels deeply hydrating, and I would agree that it has a plumping effect. When I took the mask off, my face was glowing! I will buy this mask again, and I would recommend it.

Primark’s PS… Plumping Sheet Mask with vitamin E is cruelty-free. It’s Leaping Bunny certified – like all of Primark’s own brand beauty products. And it’s 80p!

Face Facts Reindeer Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I tried just recently – Face Facts Reindeer Sheet Mask with blackberry extract, panthenol and sodium hyaluronate. This face mask promises to leave skin feeling nourished and refreshed. The instructions state that the mask should be left on for 20-30 minutes.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. I didn’t expect the mask to be both refreshing and hydrating – but it kept its promise! When I removed the mask, my face looked and felt hydrated, and some of the essence was still “sitting” on my skin. I was also happy with the fit of the mask. So yeah, the mask was actually quite enjoyable!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask! This Face Facts Reindeer Sheet Mask with blackberry extract is available as a 20ml single-use sheet mask. On the packaging, it states that the mask is vegan, that it was not tested on animals, and that it’s paraben-free. If the mask is something you’d like to try (or buy as a stocking filler), you can get it at Home Bargains. I don’t remember the exact price for the mask, but it was under £1.

Simple Rich Moisture Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Simple Rich Moisture Sheet Mask. This sheet mask claims to be the “perfect antidote to dry city skin”. It contains a small number of botanical extracts which promise to “infuse active ingredients into the skin”.

This sheet mask is supposed to be used post-cleansing. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin…

I’ve given this mask a try, and I’m satisfied that it delivers on its promise. The essence is rich and hydrating without feeling heavy or being sticky. I’m happy with the fit of the mask too! All in all, I’d recommend this mask, and I know I’ll buy it again!

Simple Rich Moisture Sheet Mask is available as a 21ml single-use face mask. I paid £1.49 (B&M Bargains).
