SkinCare | New In

Sunday, 9 August 2015
I’m not one to change up my skincare much especially if I’ve found some that works well for me but after I came back from my holiday in June I revamped part of my skincare & fell more in love with a few old newbies from a few months before.

Let’s start off with the products I’ve had for the longest. This have to be my Mario Badescu products, I picked these up back in May after I start to run out of my then loved Pixi Glow tonic. I want another exfoliating toner but that was easier for me to get & with a better price tag. I found about Mario Badescu quite a long time ago when my acne was still bad but I never braved trying anything. I was only reminded of the brand when I was doing an online search for an exfoliating toner.

The Glycolic Acid Toner only has 4 ingredients compared to the Pixi Glow Tonic which has 19 ingredients.  The ingredients in the Glycolic Acid Toner are water, aloe gel, grapefruit extract & glycolic acid. This toner is great for anyone that suffers from scarring as it helps reduce the discolouration of scars & it’s also helps to keep the looking more vibrant an less congested. This product cost £15.50 for 236ml or £26.50 for 455ml.

The next Mario Badescu product is the Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rose Water. This is a great product to add moisture back into the skin. I like to use this during the day when I’m wearing no makeup to give my skin a little boost & to feel refreshed. It’s also great to use after your face cream & it states that you can use this as a makeup setter & a hair mist, I haven’t tried either of these but I can imagine your hair smelling great if this was misted over your hair. Onto the smell because the spray has rose water this really reminds me of turkish delight, I love this smell. This product cost £5.95 for 4oz or £10.25 for 8oz.

Let’s move onto the products I bought after my holiday, firstly I bought these as I need more soothing & hydrating products as I got a little burnt on holiday, I clearly didn’t listen to my Sun Protection 101 tips. I’ve always heard good things are the Super Facialist by Una Brennan range, so I thought that would be my best bet to try & find some new products that I know will work with my skin. The first thing I picked up was the Vitamin C+ Brighten Cleansing Oil. I had never used cleansing oil till I went on holiday & picked up a mini of the Mac Cleanse Off Oil (Which is amazing). Since I loved the Mac cleanser so much I thought I would try a more purse friendly cleansing oil.

The Skin Renew Cleansing Oil is infused with Vitamin C, Olive, Grapeseed & Rosehip oils. This cleansing oil also has Rosemary oil, Vitamin E & Cucumber oil in it. This starts off as an oil but once water makes contact with it, it turns into a milky cleanser. I find this removes my makeup a lot faster & easier than my previous cleanser. This product cost£10.99 for 200ml.


The Rose Hydrate Mask is a great 5 minute intense moisture mask. I like to use this ever week or so to add moisture back into my skin especially when it gets really dry or I’ve worn quite a bit of makeup that week.  This mask has White Willow which enhances skin cell turn over, it also has Vitamin E & Urea with soothing marshmallow extract to hydrate, plump & replenish the skin. You use this for only 5 minutes & then wash off; you are left with incredibly soft skin. This product cost£9.99 for 125ml
