Elizavecca Milky Piggy Water Lock Hydro Gel Melting Mask

Published April 11, 2015 by purabeautyblogger

2015-03-21 20.00.07

I have been eyeing up these masks for quite a while. I love Korean sheet masks. Especially the Etude House Snail sheet mask. They really refresh my face, leaving it soft and supple. Am getting older and my skin is starting to show the first signs of ageing. So wanted to try something that offered a little bit more.

I can not find an ingredients lists for this and there is no list on the packet either, so I just had to put my faith in the product.

20150321_195738

Luckily my face survived. In fact I am so glad I tried this mask . It is amazing.

These are a bit more expensive. About $10 for a pack of 5 from Roserose. Nowhere seems to sell them individually.

2015-03-21 19.59.31

They come in two parts, which is great for a perfect fit. All gel masks I have come across are like this. I wish the normal sheet masks were like this as it really is pot luck if they will fit. Some have been perfect and others have been made for giants. I’m 6ft so hardly small

Putting the mask on was very easy because of the two separate pieces. I relaxed on the sofa for about an hour or so. Got too absorbed with Ant and Decs Saturday Night Take Away. It was still very pliable, just dehydrated. I could not believe that my face had actually managed to absorb all that moisture. After I removed the mask, my face felt so soft and moist. This feeling stayed for a couple of days. It was really strange. I have never experienced that with a mask before. The results are usually very temporary. I had to keep telling myself not to touch my face the next day. My face felt amazing.

I will be using this as a weekend mask and leaving my etude house snail mask for weekdays.

The only problem is they are only available from Roseroseshop.

Am debating whether I should get the wholesale amount. It is that good. Although that will probably keep me in masks for the next year. Decisions decisions.

Cognito Luxury Lip Balm – Coconut, Plum, Vanilla, Strawberry, White Chocolate

Published April 11, 2015 by purabeautyblogger

Lip Balms

We all have tubes of it dotted around the house, in our bags and coat pockets.

Why do we have so many?

Some of them smell yummy, some really moisturise, some I have bought just for the super cute packaging.

Nothing has ever stood out for me.

I have now discovered the exception to the rule. It ticks all boxes

It smells mouth wateringly good. Which will always entice me to use it.

The ingredients are natural with no nasty chemicals.

The container is a gorgeous pale blue glass that would not look out of place on a dressing table.

Cognito Luxury Lip Balm

cognito

They have introduced 5 new Luxury Lip Balms to their range and I was sent some of the flavours to try. I wish there was smellavision, because they are actually making my mouth water. I have always loved coconut so thought coconut macaroon would be my favourite, but the plum crumble has swayed me.

plumcrum

They come in the following flavours

White Chocolate Truffle

Strawberry Cheesecake

Plum Crumble

Coconut Macaroon

Vanilla Ice Cream

Ingredients

Butyrospermum Parkii (shea) butter, Cera Alba (beeswax), Oryza Sativa  (rice) Bran oil, Theobroma Cacao (cocoa) Seed Butter, Prunus  Armeniaca (apricot) Kernel Oil, Vaccinium  Macrocarpon (cranberry) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Aroma, benzyl alcohol, anise alcohol, benzoate.

No Paraffin or Petroleum derivatives

Directions

Apply to lips as often as needed. Excess balm can be massaged into cuticles, hands, elbows, in fact anywhere that has dry skin.

Review

As soon as I looked at the ingredients I knew this was going to be a fabulous balm. I love products with Shea Butter in them. It melts at normal body temperature and is full of vitamins. I had not come across some of the other ingredients before and had to research the benefits of some of the oils included.

I am including an explanation of the oils, in case you are not familiar with them either

Cranberry Seed Oil – It contains one of the highest anti oxidants of all fruit/veg oil. Rich in essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6) and vitamin A, C, E and K.

Apricot Kernel Oil – It is a great oil for dry skin where it nourishes and protects. Rich in vitamins A, B and E. Calming and soothing

Rice Bran Oil – It has a high sterol content making it invaluable in the fight against free radicals.

I have been applying this luxury lip balm morning and night and can see an improvement in the skin texture.

It leaves a delicate sheen on the lips. It is not greasy at all, so you can pop it on before going out , with no fear of your hair sticking to your lips.

My review

The first time I used these, I made the mistake of using the whole pack on the first night. Yes it left me with a wonderfully plump moisturised face, but it also moisturised my pillow and quilt. I now get about 3 nights wear out of these sleeping packs. I have read that some people get 5 days use!

Just remember to seal them up after opening, so that they do not go dry after the first night. Popping it in a small plastic bag works just fine.

In the morning there is no residual stickiness but I can feel it slightly in the shower when the water hits my face. All of them deliver a very good moisture hit.

My favourite is the seaweed sleeping mask. It smells lovely and really plumps up my skin in the night.

I alternate between this one and the shea one. I have always liked shea butter. I used to swathes it neat on my skin when I was younger and I am sure it helped to keep some of the wrinkles at bay, even if it did ruin every pillowcase I have possessed.

They are available at Roseroseshop for only $1 each plus shipping, which I think is great value for money

In fact this is how much I love them

Blackout Review

2015-02-12 18.04.47

Black is still the new black! If intensity is your game, take the challenge with this Blackout Box. Say bye bye to Miss Plain Jane and turn up the drama in your beauty routine with this Black Box! Packed with all things beauty and black that you can imagine, you’ll be surprised at how much intensity this awesome box brings.

2015-02-18 17.07.38                     2015-02-18 17.08.39

This box contained the following items:

B&Soap Black Block 85g $24

2015-02-12 18.05.37

Product Description: A black bar soap made from nature’s complexion clean-up crew — charcoal, rosemary, and olive oil. It gets to the bottom of skin’s cloudy, clogged pores to clear the way for smoother, softer, and brighter-looking skin. Formulated for combination to oily skin, this handmade charcoal soap absorbs debris and impurities while the rosemary extracts act as a natural antibacterial agent to detoxify pores without irritation.

How To Use: Create a lather using hands and massage the foam all over the face. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

20150218_155840

Review: Reading the ingredients for this soap was very interesting. Full of spot busting natural  additives. When you use it, it creates a lovely creamy lather in your hands, which I then massaged into my face. You can smell the charcoal, but that is actually quite nice. It left my skin feeling clean and clear without stripping it totally of natural oils. A great soap to use in the morning when you wake up.

Honest Clinic Black Hole Spot 10ml $26

2015-02-12 18.06.43

Product Description:  This night care gel contains a special A+BHA complex – the perfect balance of AHA and BHA components – formulated by Honest Clinic to gently melt away excessive dead skin cells and impurities from both inside the pores and the outer surface of the skin.  It effectively treats acne and blemish spots with just a single application while brightening up darkened, uneven skin tone at the same time.

How To Use:  Take a small amount of the formula and place it over troubled spot just before going to bed. Make sure it doesn’t go on non-problematic area of the skin as it could result in reddening.

20150218_160005

Review: I do not normally suffer from spots, but one appeared on my forehead, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try this product. I put it on just before bed.It said to apply it only on the spot, not the surrounding skin, so I knew it would be power packed. It feels very cool when you apply it and dries quickly. There is a slight medicinal smell but that fades very quickly once applied. When I woke in the morning the spot had really gone down and was a lot less red. I normally just dab spots with tea tree but will be using this spot treatment from now on.

Tosowoong Black Head Nose Pack x8 $6

2015-02-12 18.07.43

Product Description: Formulated with Moroccan lava clay, charcoal powder and volcanic ash, this blackhead removing nose pack is entirely made up of natural ingredients and the black color of the patches comes from actual charcoal powders.  It’s gentle on the skin yet effectively draws out stubborn blackheads from your nose

How To Use:  Cleanse and wet your nose with water.  Remove the film from the pack and place the smoother side of it over your nose.  Wait for 15 minutes until the pack is entirely dried.  Then peel it off from the edges, gently as it is pretty sticky and may stimulate the skin

2015-02-18 16.39.40

Review: I have used many varieties of pore strips, but never black charcoal ones. There is always something satisfying about seeing all the blackheads on the strip afterwards. This one has the added charcoal which you can smell when it is on your nose. It is not unpleasant, but you can definitely smell it. I am not sure if the charcoal did anything, but these were very effective pore strips. These were very easy to use and did the job well. The pores on my nose were super clean afterwards.

L’Cret Hair Colour Keeper Treatment Shampoo 300ml $42

2015-02-12 18.08.12

Product Description: A must have treatment shampoo for those with dyed hair. The colour keeping blend of sunflower seed, babassu seed oil, panthenol, and silk protein protects the hair from fading in colour or UV bleaching, while delivering rich nutrients for a healthy moisture and oil balance.

How To Use: Lather well and massage into scalp and hair. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

Ingredients: water, cocamidopropyl betaine, glycerine, potassium cocoyl glycinate, cocamide mipa, cocamide dea, sodium chloride, butylene glycol, polyquarternium 7, polyquaternium 10, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed extract, argania spinosa kernel oil, orbignya oleifera seed oil, fragrance, panthenol, disodium edta, citric acid, sodium benzoate, hydrolzed silk, methylchloroisothiaz olinone, methylisothiazolinone, ci 15985

20150218_160515

Review: No sulfates!! Hooray!! This shampoo has a lovely fresh herby smell. When I first saw the shampoo I was slightly worried about a black shampoo, but luckily it was only the bottle that was black. Looking through the ingredients it sounded like a nourishing gentle shampoo. Even though it does not contain SLS it still lathered quite well. It was very easy to wash out and left my hair feeling fresh and clean. I had recently coloured my hair and there was no noticable colour fade, so this shampoo will hopefully make my colour last longer.

Summary

This is a well curated box and am glad there was no black eyeliner included ( I am drowning in those). They are all products that I will use so this was great value at only $19

Chemotherapy Skincare

Published February 15, 2015 by purabeautyblogger

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2014 I started the gruelling slog of 8 rounds of chemotherapy. Most people have heard about the sickness you get with chemotherapy, but no one talks about the other side effects.
When I was on Tax (chemo) my skin became ultra sensitive. It hurt even to touch it.
Through my work I decided to give the following a go

Eve Taylor Ultra Soothing Cleanser 200ml £18.49

ultra_soothing_cleanser_200ml_1

Description: A rich, creamy cleanser with soothing Oatmeal and conditioning Camellia oil.

Gently cleanses as it nourishes and calms ultra dry or irritated skins. Benefits: Deeply nourishing and hydrating to leave skin feeling soft and supple. May be applied as a 5 minute mini masque to reduce areas of redness. Skin is instantly soothed whilst being gently cleansed.

Skin type/condition: Ultra dry, hyper sensitive, severely dehydrated or irritated skin

Key ingredients: Oatmeal, Camellia Oil, Aloe Vera.

Review: My skin was so compromised, I was not sure it would be able to handle any product. It calmed down all the redness and left my skin feeling soft and supple. Unlike the red inflamed, tight stretched skin that I had before.

As soon as I put it on my face I felt instant relief. It felt so nice and cooling on my raw face.

When my skin was feeling very tight and sore, I left the cleanser on for 10-15 minutes as an emergency mask.

I finished with a few drops of Eve Taylor pure Jobjoba oil. A natural plant oil that is very similar to the skins on secretions. I also used this natural oil on my finger and toe nails. It kept them looking good, with no flaking or breaking. Although it did not stop the rings. But these disappeared from the nails a couple of months after finishing chemotherapy.

Everyone could not believe how good my skin was considering the amount of chemotherapy I was having.

This very simple routine worked so well for me

The cold cap saved most of my hair but not my eyebrows /eyelashes

Scrub 2 Review

If you liked our first Scrub Box, you’re definitely in for a treat with this Scrub Box #2! Polish, retexturise, and resurface the skin by blasting away debris on the skin’s surface for a head-to-toe glow! Once the surface of the skin is polished and renewed, the skin will be ready to soak up more nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants, and lock in moisture for younger, smoother, and more radiant skin!   Scrub-a-dub-dub deep down into the skin to get that lit-from-within, rosy glow! In this world of ever-changing beauty trends, it’s nice to know that clean, supple, and glowing skin will always be “in!” 

Beauty Firm Rubbing Jelly Scrub 60ml $7

20150212_104056

Product Description: This cute jelly scrub features a super skin-smoothing blend of argan oil, apricot seeds, and panthenol to gently polish, smooth, and moisturize dry and callused elbows and heels. It features a silicon jelly bristle pad to gently yet effectively loosen up dry and callused skin surface to reveal younger, brighter, smoother skin.

How To Use: Turn the jelly brush to “open”, squeeze out the scrub formula, and massage over heels and elbows.    Rinse the jelly brush thoroughly after use.

2015-02-14 18.33.19

Review: When i looked at the box i assumed it is going to contain a little tube of scrub. I was very wrong. The packaging of this product is great. I love the little silicone tentacles. They really help to distribute the product and aid in exfoliation. It reminds me of the Eve Taylor Cleansing Brush which I love.

It smells really lovely fresh and fruity. It is a clear gel with little bits of apricot seed. I am not sure it is rough enough to deal with feet, but it is great for the rest of the body. I know it says elbow and heel scrub, but I also used it on my thighs. I love the applicator.

It left the skin smooth and felt like it stimulated the circulation as well. Great product.

Ddung Family Peeling Gel 120ml $18

2015-02-12 12.47.52

Product Description:  A facial peeling gel enriched with aloe vera leaf, grapefruit, centella asiatica and chamomile extracts for soothing and smoothening (smoothening??) out the skin.  It will exfoliate away excess seburn, impurities and dead skin cells to reveal clearer, brighter and silkier complexion.

How To Use: Gently massage the peeling gel over clean face, rolling away dead skin cells and dry patches with your hands. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

2015-02-14 18.34.09

Review: When I first saw the packaging, I was instantly put off. It looks like it is aimed at 5 year olds.   I gave it the benefit of the doubt and opened it up. I instantly wished I hadn’t. It smells of glue, and not in a good way. I took a deep breath and squeezed some out. It was an opaque gel, that when rubbed into the skin starts to collect in little bits. My hand did look brighter after application but the smell and packaging really put me off. I will not be using this product ever again. This wins the award for worst product ever received in a meme beauty box.

Pure Smile Jewelry Scrub Amethyst 100ml $10

2015-02-12 12.48.35

Product Description: Pure Smile’s sweetly scented body scrub is made from black sugar, shea butter, jojoba seed oil, glycerin and also amethyst powder extracts for cleansing your skin of any impurities and maintaining it silky smooth and healthy.

How To Use: Gently massage the body scrub onto wet skin for couple of minutes. Rinse off with warm water

20150213_192003

Review: This pleasant gel had a slightly floral scent, but nothing too overpowering.  It was gritty without being too rough. More like caster sugar than granulated sugar. It feels very moisturising, with an almost glycerin  texture. After using this scrub my skin was left bright and moisturised. There was no need for a separate moisturiser.

ProYou S Special E/B Creamy Peel 50g $48

2015-02-12 12.50.12

Product Description: Let this creamy gommage exfoliator erase away all dead skin cells, blackheads and sebum piled up in the skin. Its extremely gentle to skin and works to softly roll away the skin impurities as cellulose exfoliates roughened skin texture. It will leave skin feeling much softer, smoother and brighter.

How To Use: Gently massage the creamy peel formula all over clean face. Rinse off with lukewarm water. 

Key Ingredients:  allantoin, punica granatum (pomegranate)  fruit extract, ficus carica (fig) fruit extract, codonopsis lanceolata (bonnet bellflower)  root extract, natto gum, jojoba oil, carica papaya  (papaya) fruit extract, centella asiatica extract, chamomilla recutita flower extract, glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) root extract, camellia sinensis leaf extract, polygonum cuspidatum (japanese knotweed) root extract,  rosemarious officinalias (rosemary) leaf extract, scutellaria baicalensis (Baikal skullcap) root extract  

2015-02-14 18.34.47

Review : This looks such a high end product, I was very happy to receive this in the box. Looking through the ingredients list I noted lots of natural extracts which I was very happy with. It has a very clean smell and feels like a luxurious cream. I can not detect any granules in it. It would be great for sensitive skin.

When you rub it into your face, it feels like you are rubbing in moisturiser rather than a scrub. After adding water it turned into a milky lotion. My skin was left feeling fresh and radiant. Which was quite a surprise as it really did not feel like it was doing anything.

A gentle high end product with noticable results.

Tonymoly Gold Black Sugar Mask 100ml $7

2015-02-12 12.49.35

Product Description: An effective facial exfoliator formulated with nutrients from black sugar, gold andhoney extracts. Use occasionally to cleanse away excessive dead skin cells, oil andskin impurities piled up in the pores to make skin sensitive and troublesome. This facial mask will work wonders to bring back the suppleness and healthy glow to yourcomplexion.

How To Use: Spread the mask evenly over wet face after cleansing and gently massage into skin. Rinse off after 10-15 minutes.

2015-02-14 18.35.35

Review: I have always loved Tonymoly products (as you can see from previous reviews). There was no detectable smell with this product, which was a shame. I was expecting a caramel type smell.

It was really gritty and sticky, almost treacle like. It felt like you were getting a really good exfoliation with this Scrub.  It is quite rough so I was a bit dubious about using it on my face. But when you start scrubbing with it, it starts to melt into your face. So my initial reservations were blown away. This left my face bright and fresh.

It has actually become my go to scrub.

I have just ordered another one for when this runs out.

Pureplus+ Skin Freyia Foot Peeling 20ml x 2 $12

2015-02-12 12.51.38

Product Description: Peel away with a pair of translucent foot peeling masks that within 3-4 days after application, start to gradually peel off dead skin cells from your feet and voila – the softest and smoothest feet you have always longed for!

How To Use: Wear the foot peeling pack on both feet after cleansing. Soak your feet in the gel for around 1.5 hours then wash it off gently with soap. Dead skin will start to peel off within the next 3-4 days and all would have shed within a week.

20150213_201806

Review: As soon as I saw this box contained a foot peeling mask, I was so excited. I have heard wonderful things about them transforming your feet.

When I opened the packet I was slightly concerned that they would not fit my big size 8 feet. But once they were unfolded, I was pleasantly surprised. I would guess they could fit up to a man’s size 10 at a push.

I cut the boots in half as instructed, and put my feet in them, fastened the tape and relaxed. Do not even attempt to walk around with these things on. It feels like you are walking on a water bed.

20150213_202108

After waiting the desired time, I removed the boots and rinsed off the remaining liquid. I did not notice any difference in my feet immediately after.

Now I just have to play the waiting game to see if they work. You have to wait 3-4 days before your feet start peeling.

Update: I totally forgot i had used these. A few days later i woke up and looked down at my feet and i was like ‘ what on earth has happened to my feet!’ Then i suddenly remembered i had used this foot mask and my heart rate returned to normal. While the peeling is going on , i would suggest wearing socks as your feet will peel quite drastically. They worked very well. My feet are lovely and soft. These are now on my shopping list.

Summary

This box contained a great selection of scrubs in a range of texture and strengths. Some of which have become must haves.

This is the new family shampoo. They also do a matching conditioner which I will be purchasing shortly.

Hope Girl Tinted Lip Balm 5g $12

2015-02-12 12.32.31

Product Description: Scented with a delicate strawberry, peach or cherry fragrance. Hope Girls Tinted Lip Balm is both a lip tintand a lip balm. While the co enzyme Q10 and shea butter formula deeply nourishes your chapped lips, the lovely pink tint will stain your lips with a long lasting colourful radiance.

How To Use: Apply the tinted lip balm with your finger and blend it into your lips.

Review: I was a bit worried about the colour when I first saw the pot. I got the peach one and thought it might be a bit too orange for me. Luckily it is more of a red orange, so suits my colouring. It feels very moisturising and smells lovely and fruity. The colour is buildable. It can go from very sheer to a lovely pop of colour ( as in the swatch pic ). I am pleased with this product and the cute little pot will easily fit into a pocket or purse.

Pure Smile Choosy LipPack Shining (white pearl and pink pearl) 3ml x 2 $5

2015-02-12 12.34.08

Product Description: Enriched with collagen, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid and honey. The Choosy Lip Pack Shining editions deliver abundant moistureand nutrition to your lip easily and quickly. The hydrogel adheres tightly onto the lips and offers a cooling and soothing effects to chapped stressed out skin as well.

How To Use: After toner application, place the lip pack over the lip. Rest for 5-30 minutes, remove the patch, and pat in the remaining essence on to your lip.

2015-02-12 22.12.42

Review: I have never seen these mask before and was intrigued. When I opened the packet, the lip mask came in a small plastic packet so that none of the essence was lost. I had to lay down when I had the mask on, as it does not stick. Cue lots of laughter and picture taking from my daughters.

2015-02-12 22.15.11

I left the mask on for 10 minutes. It was very pleasent, with no fragrance or taste that I could detect.  The mask itself is very silky.

I did not notice much of a difference to my lip area after I removed the mask. This might be because my lip area is already hydrated from all the lip balms I use.

Summary: I think it was good value for money and will use all these products.
