Salcura – Antiac Daily Face Wash and ACTIV Liquid Spray & FREE samples

Salcura – Antiac Daily Face Wash and ACTIV Liquid Spray & FREE samples

I was recently contacted by Salcura to ask if I would like to try out some of their specialist natural skincare products. I was sent a real haul of products to test including these 2 Antiac products developed to help reduce and treat the symptoms of acne. Antiac is a range of 100% natural acne treatment that contains no harsh chemicals, only plant-based ingredients such as sea buckthorn, tea tree and sandalwood oils. Antiac was recently rated the best acne treatment on Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies programme. Antiac Daily Face Wash* – this is a ph neutral foaming facial wash with a translucent amber colour, and it lathers and foams fairly well. It should be used morning and evening. It removes face make-up really well, but it’s not too good at removing eye make-up so you may need to use a separate eye make-up remover beforehand. It has a pleasant scent that doesn’t smell medicated or clinical in any way and it’s totally free from parabens, SLS, perfumes, steroids,...

Eve Lom – Rescue Mask

Eve Lom – Rescue Mask

I love a good face mask, and this Rescue Mask from Eve Lom has won In Style’s award for “Best Mask for Congested Skin” for seven consecutive years, so I was looking forward to trying it out. The ingredients include Camphor, Almond and Honey-infused Kaolin Clay and Eve Lom describe it as ‘the perfect weekly deep clean to keep your complexion in radiant condition’. The Rescue Mask is recommended for stressed skin, for example blotchy skin, irritable break-outs, jet-lag or puffiness, so it’s perfect for a skin treat after the excesses of Christmas and New Year! I assumed that this would be a creamy moisturising type of mask however when I squirted it out onto my fingers I found it was a thick clay-based mask – a creamy colour with rather large dark-coloured exfoliating grains in. It has an earthy scent with a menthol undertone that I found rather unpleasant (I think this is the scent of the Kaolin Clay coming through), and the smell stayed all the time...

Avojo – The Black Peel Off Mask

Avojo – The Black Peel Off Mask

I was recently invited to try out and review The Black Peel Off Mask* from Danish skincare brand Avojo. This mask has been developed to help reduce the production of excess oil and dead skin cells, in order to prevent blackheads and breakouts and keep the skin looking clear. The Black Peel Off Mask is a unisex product for use on the T-zone (nose, forehead and chin) but should be kept well away from the eye area. The mask dries and after 25-30 minutes it can then be peeled off. Avojo recommend using the mask 1-2 times a week, and there is plenty of product in one sachet. I tried out The Black Peel Off Mask yesterday morning. The first thing that I noticed was the strong alcoholic smell as I was applying the mask, it really made my eyes water – I think the alcohol evaporating is what makes the mask dry out so quickly. After leaving the mask to do its thing for 30 minutes I removed...
