Garnier SkinActive – Moisture Bomb|Tissue Mask

If you know me, you will probably know how much I love these tissue masks from Garner! I always highly recommend them to friends and family and give them as gifts for pamper days.
So when I found out they had brought out two new ones I had to try them out as I love the blue one (Super-Hydrating) a lot!

I find these a nice once a week face mask as they are not heavy on the skin nor do they dry your skin out. I normally use them at the end of the week to put back moisture in my skin, especially if I have been working a lot in the week as my skin dries out quick and wearing makeup can make my skin dry.

How are these tissue masks different?

This super hydrating tissue mask, inspired by Asia, diffuses the equivalent level of hydrating serum as per 1 week’s use of day care.* Truly innovative, its ultra-thin tissue is infused with a super-hydrating serum. Unmask smoother, bouncier, healthier looking skin in just 15 minutes. Applied to the face, it acts like a hydration wrap that continuously diffuses all the effectiveness of the serum intensely hydrating your skin. Its amazing freshness quenches and comforts skin instantly, for a pure moment of absolute pampering. The mask is easy to apply and remove. Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.

Garnier SkinActive – Moisture Bomb | Daily Moisturiser & Tissue Mask Review

Garnier SkinActive – Moisture Bomb | Daily Moisturiser & Tissue Mask Review

Now it is getting a lot colder in the UK, my skin is in more need of moisturiser as the cold makes my skin so dry. I have been looking for a good moisturiser that lasts throughout the day and makes my skin feel hydrated.

I came across the Garnier Skin Active Tissue mask in Boots and after seeing a lot of bloggers talking about it and because I am a huge fan of face masks I decided to give it a go.
Because I found the Tissue Mask such a good moisture mask that made my skin feel so hydrated, I decided to see what their day moisturiser was like.

This blog post will be quite a long one as I will be talking about both the Tissue Mask and Daily Moisturiser.

Yes, if your skin is dehydrated, shows the effects of time and your lifestyle (dullness, irregularities, fine lines…), and if you are looking for an effective solution to rehydrate and revitalise the radiance of your skin.

Review

The Tissue Mask comes in a foil packet and contains one mask.
On the back of the packet it has instructions on how to use the tissue mask and how long to apply it for.

How To Use

1. Unfold the mask. Carefully apply the white tissue to thoroughly cleansed skin. Make sure the blue protective film is facing outwards. Smooth the mask gently to ensure contact with the skin.

2. Remove the protective film.

3. Adjust the mask contours on the face. Leave for 15 minutes.

4. To remove the mask, peel off slowly from the edges. Gently massage in any excess serum, or use a cotton pad to remove.

I found the actual mask a bit messy at first, I did not think it would be filled of product. It is also very cold on the skin but after a while it becomes quite soothing. It can also be a bit fiddly trying to get the protective film off.

I like to use this tissue mask twice a week as I can get quite dry skin, especially wearing makeup for work for long hours. I normally apply the mask after washing my hair and when I have a good film on so I can relax more.

When removing the mask I like to take the mask and rub the remaining product into my skin and then letting the product dry.

The holes in the mask are big enough to go around your eyes, nose and mouth. It is not greasy either so leaves your skin feeling very moisturised.

After the first use I felt my skin was so much more hydrated and looked more brighter and  the finish dewy looking. It is such a great mask to put on for 15 minutes as it is not drying like most face masks and not as half as messy!

I highly recommend this tissue mask if you have very dry skin or would just like to hydrate your skin a little. I keep recommending this mask to my friends and family as it has become my new favourite.

It is also £0.99 in Boots so I have been stocking up on them while they are currently on offer.

It is great value for money and does the job perfectly.

This product is originally £1.49 and you can find it in most stores or online at Boots here.

Its fresh texture melts immediately on contact with the skin and hydrates it perfectly all day long. No greasy or sticky effect.

Proven Effectiveness*

– Instantly: 24 hour continuous hydration

-The skin feels smoother (89% of women agree)

– Wrinkles appear reduced, the skin is radiant and looks healthier (93% of women agree)

*Self-evaluation: 57 women

Is Moisture Bomb 3-in-1 Moisturiser right for me?

Yes, if your skin is dehydrated, shows the effects of time and your lifestyle (dullness, irregularities, fine lines…) and you seek a care that efficiently hydrates and leaves it feeling protected.

 Review

This moisturiser comes in a round, small bottle. You do not need a lot of product as a little goes a long way, unless you need a bit more moisture on some days.

3

How To Use

Apply one or two pea-sized amounts of Moisture Bomb 3-in-1 Moisturiser on clean, dry skin daily. Avoid the eye area. In case of contact with eyes, rinse them immediately and thoroughly. For best results, cleanse your skin beforehand.

I cleanse my face with the Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water before applying the Moisture Bomb Moisturiser. I then wait for it to dry before applying my concealer and powder, it makes my skin and makeup look a lot less dry and it lasts throughout the day.

It also makes my skin feel so smooth and hydrated. It does not really have a smell to it which I like as I am not a fan of perfumed moisturiser.
This moisturiser is so light weight and melts and sinks into your skin, I use one pump to cover my whole face.

I have been using this for just over 2 weeks now and I love this moisturiser so much as it is not at all greasy or heavy on my skin.

I will add it is quite expensive for how little you get but I think it is worth the price.

This product is £7.99 and can find it in most stores and online in Boots here.

I will be buying the Night Cream to complete the Moisture Bomb range.
I would like to point out this isn’t a sponsored blog post, I just really like this skin care range.

Have you tried any of the Garnier Moisture Bomb skin care range?

Mitchum Deodorant | Review

IMG_3313

Mitchum Deodorant | Review

For a while I have been using the Sure Women Maximum Protection Deodorant, I was a huge fan of this deodorant but then I started to dislike this product for some reason and wanted to try out a different brand of deodorant. Here in the UK we have had really warm weather, so a good deodorant is a must!

IMG_3327

While doing my weekly shop I came across Mitchum, I have never heard or seen this brand before and because it was on offer I decided to give it a go. I have been using it for around 3 months now and it has replaced my Sure deodorant and has become my new favourite.

First I picked up the spray deodorant and then a week after I picked up the roll on and love both of these products.

PicMonkey Collage

Mitchum Advanced Women – 48hr Protection Shower Fresh Anti-Perspirant Spray.

Mitchum Advanced Women 48hr Protection Shower Fresh Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant, our most advanced formula ever.

Ultra powerful sweat + odour control

Maximum wetness protection with the highest level of active ingredient, keeps you feeling dry and comfortable for 48 hours.

Minimises white marks.

This spray on deodorant does the job and ticks off all the boxes in what is aims to do.
It also contains aloe and vitamin E to help soothe and condition the skin which is amazing as sometimes deodorants can do the opposite and actually irate your skin.

This spray deodorant has a nice scent to it that is not over powering and throughout the day the smell stays which is nice.

I would not say at lasts for 48 hours as I like to re apply deodorants twice a day any way to make sure it keeps doing the job. It also does not leave white marks on your clothing as many deodorants I have bought tend to leave white marks on clothing and it is a pain.

This product is £2.99 but it is currently on sale in Boots for £2.00

Mitchum have a range of different scents for this spray on deodorant.

You can find this product in most shops or you can find it online here.

PicMonkey Collage2

Mitchum Advanced Women – 48HR Protection Pure Fresh Anti-Perspirant Roll on.

Mitchum Advanced Women 48HR Protection Pure Fresh Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant with new oxygen odour control technology.

Maximum wetness protection with the highest level of active ingredient, keeping you feeling dry and comfortable for 48 hours.

It Contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to soothe and condition skin, whilst its long lasting fragrance keeps you feeling shower fresh.

Alcohol free and Dermatologist tested.

Goes on clear.

What I like about this deodorant compared to the Sure roll on is that it does not have a strong scent to it. Throughout the day it smells fresh but is not overwhelming. The sure one has an overwhelming scent which after a while I did not like and slowly began to dislike it.

It does not leave white marks on your clothing but can on dark clothing but it does not claim to be invisible, but having white marks on clothing 9/10 is not bad considering some deodorants can leave white marks on most clothing. The product does not go flaky. It helps you stay fresh throughout the day.

I do not feel like I need to reapply throughout the day with this deodorant, I feel like roll on deodorants last longer then the sprays.

This product is £3.2o but is on offer in Boots for £2.00.

Mitchum also have a range of different roll on deodorants.

You can find this product in most shops or you can find it online here.

What is your favourite deodorant to use?

Hair Products For Stronger, Healthier Hair | 2015

IMG_2343

After trying out a lot of different shampoo’s and hair masks I have finally found 3 products that have done wonders to my hair. These three products have made my hair look and feel stronger and more thicker.

Around 2 months ago I bleached my hair from black to a reddish brown. This took bleaching my hair 3 times, dying it once and 3 and a half hours of sitting in a chair. After all this my hair as you can imagine was damaged and weak so for the past two months I have used a hair mask once a week.

The other day I got my roots touched up and my hair dresser said how much better my hair looked and felt, this was down to these three products that I can’t live without.

Hair Mask

Hair Mask | Aussie 3 Minute Miracle 

‘Our unique formula, with Australian Balm Mint, helps mend split ends and roughened cuticles. It helps transform dry, damaged hair into manageable and shiny locks in just 3 minutes. Australian Balm Mint.This nourishing treatment gets to work fast on damaged hair, repairing and smoothing rough cuticles, restoring manageability and shine.’

The day after I had my hair bleached and dyed I went to Asda and picked up a hair mask. I was recommended this and it has to be the best hair mask I have tried!

Let me just say it smells AMAZING!

I have used Aussie shampoo’s and I loved the smell of those too. I have never tried their hair masks so I didn’t really know what to expect from this mask. After the first use my hair already felt in a better condition and also smelt amazing! After using it for a around 5 weeks now my hair feels so much stronger and looks a lot more healthier.

I like to use it once a week. I run it through my hair making sure all my hair has the product on, then tie my hair up and leave it for a good 10-20 minutes then I rinse it all out.

The only downside of this product is the packaging. It comes in a bottle where you squeeze it to come out like many other hair products but this does not have a lid. Which means it is not ideal for traveling, I travel from my house to my dads and to uni and I like to take this mask with me but it means being extra careful where I put it incase it spills in my bag or case.

You can pick this up in most shops, you can also find it online here. 
This product is £4.99.
