Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm, Manhattan Lipjelly 59N, MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 lip products – Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm, Manhattan Lipjelly 59N and MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up.

Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm is one of the better lip balms I’ve used over the past few years. I just finished it, but I’m happy to report that It made my lips feel hydrated. The raspberry flavour is 100% spot on! This lip balm is tinted; the colour of the lip balm matches the colour of the raspberry on the front. I enjoyed using this one!

Manhattan Lipjelly 59N is my favourite gloss-balm type of lip product at the moment. I picked it up as part of a nail polish + lip duo for £1 at Poundland, so I didn’t expect much from it. But guess what, this lip jelly is amazing! It tastes like… paradise (!), it hydrates my lips perfectly, and the sheer tint is super gorgeous. I love it!

MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up is another lip product I’m enjoying very much. This gloss is very nourishing, and it has a beautiful sheer brownish tint. I also love the classic lipstick flavour! The best bit – I paid 50p for this one (bargain bin).

I’m happy with the lip products I’m using at the moment. I do have a few more in my rota, and I will do another post about the other products soon!

Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to try them? Which lip products are you loving at the moment? Please feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! ☺️

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution.

Deep Action is Superdrug’s clear skin range. And now they’ve done 3 new skin care “solutions”. I’ve looked at all of them, but I opted for this one since it seems to be the one with the highest number of active ingredients.

In addition, this product promises to promote brighter and more even skin – so it was an obvious choice!

The instructions state… “Use three times a week, in the evening, on cleansed skin, using a cotton pad. Avoid the eye area and allow to fully absorb into skin.

I think the instructions could have been a lot better. But in a nutshell, you’re supposed to use this product like a toner – just steer clear of your eye area! Once you’ve gone over your face a couple dozen times (yes, that’s how I do it), just leave it alone for a little while (I give it 10 minutes) before you apply any other products to your face.

I’ve been using this product every other night for about 6 weeks now, and I’m blown away! I think this is the most effective brightening product I’ve ever tried. It’s unbelievably powerful, and it’s even better than Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic. I agree with Superdrug’s claim that results are visible after 2 weeks. This stuff is incredible! I’ve used it on my face and on my body, and I’m happy to report this product took care of everything!

All in all, I’m glad I bought 2 bottles when they were on a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion. When Superdrug ran the same promotion again, I bought 4 more bottles!

Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution is vegan and certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). It’s available as 30ml for £5.99.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Blackcurrant & Blueberry Peel-Off Masque AND Lime & Lemon Purifying Masque

Hi there! Today’s post is about this face mask duo that I found at my local Savers drugstore – Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Blackcurrant & Blueberry Peel-Off Masque AND Lime & Lemon Purifying Masque. I think this face mask duo was 69p! A total steal! I’ve now given these masks a try, and here’s what I think…

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Blackcurrant & Blueberry Peel-Off Masque promises to peel away impurities and dead skin cells with the help of antioxidant-rich blackcurrant and blueberry. I think this is a good face mask. It did make my skin softer, so I have no doubt that it removed dead skin cells.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Lime & Lemon Purifying Masque is a clay mask which promises to gives skin a deep and refreshing cleanse. Whilst I didn’t care for the bathroom cleanser fragrance, the mask did what it promised to do. It’s definitely worth a try if you have problem skin.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Blackcurrant & Blueberry Peel-Off Masque AND Lime & Lemon Purifying Masque is available as a face mask duo. I’ve also seen (and purchased) other varieties, so if you’re interested in trying out new face masks, you should swing by your local Savers drugstore.

Skin Treats Pineapple Toning Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Pineapple Toning Sheet Mask. This face mask contains vitamins and minerals, and it promises to soothe and tone skin for a youthful and refreshed look with a healthy glow.

This is a regular sheet mask that’s supposed to be used after you’ve cleansed your face. Just leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin.

Since Skin Treats’ Blueberry sheet mask left me underwhelmed, I didn’t expect much from this mask. However, I’m happy that I gave this mask a try because it’s actually very good! The sheet mask itself is of much better quality (comparable to The Crème Shop’s sheet masks) which was a nice surprise.

I also think the essence is really good. It felt refreshing and toning, and the subtle pineapple fragrance was very enjoyable too. I have already repurchased this mask, and if you come across it, I’d recommend you give it a try too!

Skin Treats Pineapple Toning Sheet Mask is available as a single use face mask for £1. I bought mine at B&M Bargains.

100 Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Lemon & Honey Peel-Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Lemon & Honey Peel-Off Mask.

This face mask is aimed at all skin types. It promises to lift away dirt, impurities and dead skin cells for softer skin.

When I gave this mask a try, I wasn’t impressed. Within seconds of applying this mask, it felt hot, almost burning, on my skin. I’ve never experienced this with any other peel-off mask. Fortunately, the burning sensation went away quickly.

Yes, the mask made my skin feel softer, and the honey & lemon lozenge scent is amazing. However, I wouldn’t buy this mask again because it gave me a major scare.

If you’d like to try it, Superdrug‘s Lemon & Honey Peel-Off Mask is available as 10ml. It’s 99p but these masks are on a 3 for 2 promo most of the time. This product is 100% cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny certified) and suitable for vegetarians.

Primark PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel-Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel Off Mask which contains cucumber, jasmine and ginseng root extracts.

This mask promises to free pores from dirt and to lift off dead skin cells. All you have to do: Apply the mask to your face, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then peel it off. After that, simply wash your face, and you’re good to go. ☺️

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! I like the fresh cucumber scent, and I’m happy with its first rate cleansing powers. This a very effective peel off mask! Montagne Jeunesse should take note because this is what their cucumber peel off mask should be like!

PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel Off Mask is available as 10ml (single use) for 80p (Primark).

Primark PS… Cleansing & Polishing Scrub Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Cleansing & Polishing Scrub Mask with charcoal and black sugar. This mask promises effective exfoliation as well as a deep cleanse. How does it work? Apply the mask to your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with water.

I’ve given this mask a try, and whilst it’s not an actual mask, I liked the exfoliating effect. This product is essentially a sugar scrub for the face. It feels effective but not too harsh, and it doesn’t have that disgusting oily residue that sugar scrubs for the body come with. Yay! If they bottled this stuff and called it “sugar face scrub”, I’d buy it and consider it a beauty staple!

Primark’s PS… Cleansing & Polishing Scrub Mask is available as 15ml single use sachet for 80p (Primark).
