100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Sukin Nourishing Chia Seed Oil & Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 skin care products that I’m using at the moment – Sukin Nourishing Chia Seed Oil & Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser. I bought a set containing these 2 products for £7.99 a little while ago – this was a total bargain because the 25ml chia seed oil alone was £14.95 back then. Thanks, TK Maxx!

Now let’s look at the products! Sukin Nourishing Chia Seed Oil for all skin types is rich in omega 3 and 6, amino acids, antioxidants and phytonutrients. Sukin recommends the oil be applied to the face once or twice a day. However, they also recommend patch testing before you start using this product – I think this is generally the right thing to do!

I’ve used this facial oil since the beginning of March, and I think it’s good but not great. This is a heavy oil that isn’t easy to spread. I use it in conjunction with a face mist, and this helps a lot! I do agree that the oil is nourishing, and it helps boost my current night cream. But I don’t like the strong fragrance (which is 100% natural), so I wouldn’t buy another chia seed oil.

I’ve been using Sukin’s Foaming Facial Cleanser since the beginning of the month, and I think it’s nice. I use this clear gel cleanser with a konjac sponge in the morning, and even though it doesn’t have SLS, it lathers up well. It seems to remove dirt effectively without drying out my skin. And despite it containing a number of oils, it doesn’t make my skin oily.

What else? This cleanser is bursting with natural ingredients – aloe vera, chamomile, tea tree, witch hazel, evening primrose, rosehip, avocado, wheat germ, sesame, lavender, etc. Good stuff! If you’re interested, Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser is available as 125ml for £7.95.

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Glow Priming Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Glow Priming Sheet Mask. This mask is bio-degradable, and it contains pearl extract, witch hazel as well as vitamin E, and it promises to reveal skin’s natural glow.

This mask is a normal leave-on sheet mask. Just cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, lay back and enjoy the mask for 15-20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. The essence was hydrating and mildly refreshing, and I noticed that my skin looked all nice and plumped up. This was great!

Having said this, the mask has a strong lotus root fragrance. Lotus and waterlily scents are some of my least favourite scents in cosmetic products, so I won’t buy this mask again. However, if you don’t mind this kind of scent, I’d recommend this face mask!

Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Glow Priming Sheet Mask is available as a 23g single-use face mask for 80p. This mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

Beauty Formulas Radiate & Glow Facial Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Beauty Formulas Radiate & Glow Facial Mask with algae extract, lemon fruit extract, mulberry root extract and sodium hyaluronate.

This face mask promises to help restore and replenish the skin for a more invigorated and radiant feel.

The instructions say: Cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes – then rinse, pat dry… job done!

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! It feels hydrating, soothing, and at the same time it also feels refreshing.

This mask was unexpectedly good! I would have preferred a leave-on formula because I think the skin absorbs more of the essence if it’s left on and not rinsed off. I might be wrong, but this is how I feel. Either way, this mask is very good, and I will buy it again!

Beauty Formulas Radiate & Glow Facial Mask is available as a single use sheet mask at Savers drugstores. I believe I paid 79p for it – what a bargain!

Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream which I’ve been using for a little while now. This eye cream promises to moisturise and to brighten dull skin around the eyes. It also claims to improve skin’s elasticity and to reduce wrinkles.

This eye cream contains plenty of amazing ingredients – niacinamide, ceramide, collagen, hyaluronic acid, vitamins B, C and E (and others) as well as a number (I stopped counting at 15) of botanics extracts like aloe leaf juice, grapefruit and lime extracts, and many more!

I think this eye cream is wonderful! It’s one of my 2 all-time favourite eye products (the other one’s Olay’s original eye gel). Here’s why: I love the formula. It’s silky and smooth – almost like a serum. The eye cream is easy to apply, and it sinks right into the skin. It plays well with all the other products I’m using (toner, serum, facial oil, moisturiser, foundation, eyeshadow, etc.), and I have no complaints.

I have no lines around my eyes (Phew!), so I can’t comment on whether this eye cream would help with this. Having said this, I have no reason to doubt this eye cream’s youth-restoring powers because it keeps its other promises. I’m happy to report that this eye cream has improved the elasticity of the skin around my eyes, that it’s wonderfully hydrating, and that is really is brightening!

All in all, I love this eye cream, and there’s not a single thing about it that I’m not 100% happy with. Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream is one of my new beauty favourites! I’d love to tell you how much product you’re getting, but this isn’t mentioned anywhere – I found this is the case with lots of products from Korea. However, I think it’s more than 15ml. Now, let’s look at the price – I only paid £6 for this fantastic product! Thank you, TK Maxx!

Primark PS… Charcoal. Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Charcoal Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask. This mask promises to draw out excess oil and impurities for cleansed pores and purified skin.

The essence contains orange and lemon fruit extracts, another few botanical extracts and charcoal powder. This mask is supposed to be left on for 10-15 minutes, and you should wash your face after use.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really powerful! I could feel the cleansing effect within seconds of placing the mask on my face. It was lovely! I was also happy when I saw that the mask left my pores looking smaller, and that it made my skin look a bit brighter. I think this is a great bubble sheet mask, and I will buy it again, no doubt!

Primark‘s PS… Charcoal Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask is available as a 20g single-use face mask for £1.50.

Malibu Lip Care Balms – Mango Flavour, Mint Flavour & Tropical Flavour

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 Malibu Lip Care BalmsMango Flavour, Mint Flavour and Tropical Flavour! These lip balms claim to be extra resistant to sun, sweat and water, and they promise UVA and UVB protection. I’ve given them a try, and I’m happy to say that these 3 lip balms are hydrating, and that they stay on. This is great. Now let’s focus on the flavours!

Malibu Mango Flavour Lip Care is my least favourite lip balm of the bunch. The flavour is terribly artificial, and I would never have guessed that it’s supposed to be mango.

Malibu Mint Flavour Lip Care is nice if you like mint-flavoured products. I’m not a fan, but my husband will be happy to use this lip balm.

Malibu Tropical Flavour Lip Care is my favourite of the three lip balms. The fruity flavour is really well done, and I’m enjoying it very much!

Based on my experience, I think these are decent products. If you want lip balms that stay on your lips and don’t slip down to your chin, you might want to give these ones a try. If you order through Malibu Sun’s website, these are £3.99 for a pack of 3, but the same pack of 3 is £1.49 at B&M Bargains (where I found them).

Primark PS… Soothing Cream Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week, and it’s also the last post this Face Mask Week. And it’s about this Primark PS… Soothing Cream Mask.

This mask promises to soothe and to hydrate skin. You’re supposed to cleanse your skin, then apply the mask to your face and neck. After about 15 minutes, rinse it off! And that’s already it!

A look at the ingredients shows that the mask is bursting with botanical extracts. This is great! I’ve given the mask a try, and I think it’s really nice. I would agree that the mask felt soothing and hydrating! One more thing I’d like to mention is that the mask has an interesting texture – it’s a jelly with pulp. It’s unusual, but it’s the perfect mask for a home spa day!

Primark PS… Soothing Cream Mask is available as 15ml for 80p at Primark. I’ll buy more of these!
