I’ve been trying this Pumpkin purifying 24k mask by Too Cool For School since the day I got it. It’s a peel-off mask, that smells and feels amazing when applying it, and it’s supposed to give you sooth, toned & radiant skin. It’s indeed gold in color, and it looks like liquid gold when applied to your skin. You need to wait 20-30 minutes for it dry completely so you can easily peel it off. I find the whole process quite pleasing, and it does not hurt or irritates your skin. It does remove the dead skin cells, and leaves your skin smoother, but that’s all it has done for me and my skin. I didn’t notice my skin looking more radiant, or more “contoured” after using it, as it stated on the package. I really liked it, but I don’t see myself buying more of it in the future.
I’ve been trying Artistry’s Hydra-V Refreshing Eye Gel Cream for a couple of months now, and I really like it. It leaves your skin smooth, and properly hydrated till the next day, which helps with the elasticity of the skin around the eyes, exactly how every eye cream should work. However, I haven’t seen any noticeable difference on my dark circles, but I spend all day in front of a computer screen so I don’t expect miracles from a cream. All in all it’s a very good product, which I totally recommend, and comes in this gorgeous packaging, which is easy to use as well.
I bought this spray moisturizer from Vaseline last month, and I’ve been using it non-stop during August. It’s super light, non-greasy, and it gets absorbed in just a few seconds. You just spray it on your skin, and spread it with your hands, and you’re good to go. This one smells like cocoa, which is simply amazing and super summery but you can also find it in 3 more scents. It’s not very rich though, so if you have really dry skin you may need to try some other product. But it’s perfect for every day, super easy & quick to use, and has a nice cooling effect. I would definitely recommend it.
This is the second bottle of La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum that I’m using, and this says a lot about my opinion. It was the first serum I ever used, and now I’m back at it. It’s super hydrating, perfect for dry & dehydrated skin, and has a refreshing but not oily gel texture. It’s watery, almost transparent and has a very discreet and pleasant scent, while it gets easily absorbed. Use it day/night before your moisturizing cream for a more hydrated & healthier looking skin. It’s not really expensive either, as it costs a bit more than 20euros for 30ml of product. It last for months though, and it’s a really good one, so I definitely recommend it!
Second Friday in a row that I’m writing a beauty review, but as you can imagine, I’m out of outfit photos and I’m feeling generally uninspired these days. But reviews are also a part of this blog, and I love doing them, so here’s another one of a product I’ve been using for months.
