My thoughts on Korres’ Wild Rose & Super Vitamin C Skincare Products

Hi everyone, 

I haven’t written a blog post in a while and I miss writing on here. However, I have been regularly posting on my other social media sites such as my Instagram, Facebook and Youtube. So if you miss me and do not know that I have these channels too, would love it if you could support me there too!

 

Today’s blog post is about some products I received while attending a launch hosted by Korres Malta. It was the cutest decorated launch I had ever attended, hosted at VIlla Arrigo. I met some other talented people and we all enjoyed a lovely presentation by Stephanie Briffa who is the brand manager of Korres here in Malta. Korres have recently landed in Malta and can be found at Remedies pharmacies in Ta’ Xbiex, Birkirkara, Mellieħa, Sliema (OPENING SOON) and Siggiewi. As well as from Central Pharmacy in Rabat and St.Andrew’s Pharmacy in Swieqi.

We were given a back story of the brand and how it came to be developed and then we were introduced to the new collection – the Wild Rose Collection. Wild Rose oil offers antioxidant, moisturising and softening properties. And in combination with Vitamin C, helps repair fine lines and pigmentation while improving the overall texture of the skin.

I am so grateful to have been invited to an event and then to also receive three of there products from their Wild Rose Collection! And since the event I have adopted these products into my skincare routine and have so far used them for 2 weeks. And now here I am writing a blog post on how I felt these products have helped my skin since I started using them!

I love the packaging on all three products, it is just so beautiful, luxurious and I like how they look in my bathroom.

Brightening & First Wrinkles Day Cream – Normal/Combination skin – 

IMG_6854

First off I would like to say that besides this cream product coming out for normal to combination skin, they also have one for oily skin or dry skin. I LOVE the smell of this day cream, it just smells so lovely and is nice to use early in the morning as you are about to start off your day.

IMG_6853

I apply this after having moisturised and I only use it in the morning (Apparently this is a moisturiser in itself so yeah you don’t have to moisturise before using this product). It offers 24 hour hydration, brightening and first wrinkles. It has a water cream texture that blends nicely into the skin.  This cream besides containing Wild Rose oil, also has Vitamin C, turmeric extract and hyaluronic acid which helps improve the signs of premature ageing and evens skin tone to reveal smoother, younger looking skin.

Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial – 

IMG_6851

I use this everyday at night and again after having moisturised. It’s a lightweight cream that offers hydration and helps even skin tone with its corn powder that helps to absorb oiliness which results into a nice matte finish.

IMG_6852

This is a sleeping face mask sort of that helps your skin be brighter by morning.

15% Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Bi-phase Booster – 

IMG_6857

I use this everyday in the morning and evening before moisturising and I apply 3 drops – 2 on either cheek and one on my forehead and rub it in. It is an intensive brightening and anti-fatigue skin care product that has a potent 15% Super Vitamin C brightening bi-phase booster to improve the appearance of first wrinkles, dark spots and dullness. The Vitamin C and Wild Rose oil helps in reducing signs of premature ageing and fatigue to reveal spotless skin.

Research showed that 94% of women who used this for 7 days claimed that they noticed improved skin’s overall appearance.

My thoughts ….

So I have combination skin and sensitive skin. These products did not cause any breakouts nor were there any bad reactions from having used them.  As I wrote, I have only used them for 2 weeks and have not missed a day where I didn’t use all three of them.

Not Edited 

I do find my skin to have gotten softer and brighter and in the mornings after having added these products in my routine. I noticed how the Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial, resulted to waking up with less dull looking skin. I think the most noticeable thing I also have noted is how smooth my skin always feels now which is a super positive from me.

IMG_6858
Not Edited

As you can see when taking the photo i had quite a large spot and this is completely due to the fact that it’s my time of the month next week and I always notice a spot or two as that time approaches! But other than that annoying spot, I haven’t had much breakouts which I am super happy about! I hope that as I continue using it, it only will keep my skin smooth and soft. The issue with my skin that annoys me the most are my acne scars but these products are not associated with helping them and am still on the hunt with something to help decrease my scars! (If you know of anything please do leave me your replies in the comments down below!!)

So overall, do I recommend these products? If you are looking for products to help your skin be healthier, smoother, softer and brighter then yes I recommend them! For me, these were the results I noticed!

Have you guys ever tried out skincare products from Korres? Let me know in the comments down below!!

I hope you enjoyed my post, thank you so much for reading and for your support!!

Until next time, 

Love Kezia

The Antiox Facial Plan – Freshly Cosmetics – Review

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all doing well. I am hoping to come out with 3 NEW blog posts this week! So stay tuned and make sure to be following my blog to get notification emails of when I post a new blog post!!

IMG_4904

Today’s blog post is all about a brand called Freshly Cosmetics. They recently released their brand in the UK and they have lots of skincare goodies for you to try out! I got the opportunity to test out something from them and I received the Antiox Facial Plan. I am so grateful for this opportunity and I would like to thank Freshly Cosmetics so much!

I just would like to say that I love the packaging from how it was sent to the packaging of the products themselves!

IMG_4909

The Antiox Facial Plan is made up of a –

  1. Fresh Green Micellar Water
  2. Purifying Facial Toner
  3. Multi-Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
  4. Multi-Antioxidant Facial Moisturiser

I have been trying it out for 2 weeks and am happy with the results. Though, I have some good and bad notes to write about this plan.

What I like about it is that it is a 4 simple step plan which basically cleans, purifies and moisturises your skin. The products are made in a way which are simply and easy to use.

IMG_4896

#1 You first would start with the Fresh Green Micellar Water and I simply get a round cotton pad and apply it all over my face. You could also spray it throughout the day on your face, to freshen up your skin!

This product helps hydrate your skin and interestingly contains an anti-stress extract, so for those going through their final exams at uni maybe this would help you and your skin relax!

The thing I don’t like about it is the scent, it’s just such a strong scent and to smell it in the morning, it’s just too much.

IMG_4897

#2 Then you would use the Purifying Facial Tonic which again has a strong scent but not as much as the Micellar Water. Again I apply this with a cotton pad. I guess yes you would need some cotton pads for this Antiox Facial Plan!

This product helps hydrate, refresh and get rid of dust accumulated through the air. It simply helps remove the impurities and honestly I do feel my skin to be cleaner and softer after using this product. However, I noticed that it did make my skin feel a little sticky but I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.

IMG_4899

#3 The next product is something I never incorporated in my skincare routine and it is a Multi-Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. I loved applying this, reminded me of being in Science class and having a pipette! Just love that word!

I loved this, it brightened my skin and it gave it a glow! This serum helps to reduce, repair and prevent signs of ageing.

IMG_4898

#4 The final product that you would use in this plan is the Multi-Antioxidant Facial Moisturiser. This can be easily applied evenly on your skin and you have to wait a minute or two so that the serum sets and absorbs before applying the moisturiser.

This moisturiser is a hydrating face cream that has antioxidants which helps hydrate your skin and again reduces skin stress.

This plan helps freshen, purifies and balances skin’s pH with lime, burdock and camomile extracts. Believe me the lime is noticeable. It helps with hydration and also includes vegan hyaluronic acid. It is dermatologically tested and suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.

My final thoughts … 

IMG_4905

I noticed my skin to be brighter, fresher and had a lovely natural glow to it. However, I also noticed that as I was using these products both in the morning and in the evening, it was making my skin red. Therefore, I might have been having a reaction and so I only completed this plan for two weeks because it was too heavy for my skin and I have combination and sensitive skin.

I am now just using the serum as that was my favourite product from the entire plan and I am using it with my usual everyday skin routine.

So that was my review on this Antiox Facial Plan from Freshly Cosmetics. You can visit their website where they have more plans and information. If you subscribe you can get 15% off your order!

They post to a lot of different countries. To my fellow Maltese followers, unfortunately they do not ship to Malta however, they do ship to England so you could use Send On or other ship it to services!

Again, I would like to thank Freshly Cosmetics for these lovely products!

What do you think of the products? Are you interested in trying out such a plan? Have you ever tried out any product from this brand? Let me know in the comments down below!! 

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Love Kezia

The Incredible Pore Mask by MayBeauty UK

Hi everyone, 

I am writing this from my room back home. And boy am I happy to be back! I hope you are all having a lovely week and I wish you all a lovely weekend!

IMG_4831

Today’s blog post is all about a Pore mask which if you don’t know me yet, I despise my pores on my face. Unfortunately, pores are something common that show up on our skin. However, there are products that you can use to minimise your pores, one of them being the Incredible Pore Mask by MayBeauty UK.

I have already posted about a face mask that helped my skin clear up by using the Incredible Face Mask also from MayBeauty UK. You can read all about it right here – The Incredible Face Mask by MayBeauty UK -Review

IMG_4902

But today’s blog post is about the Incredible Pore Mask. It is a pore mask that helps to –

  • Remove excess oil and sebum
  • Deeply cleanses the pores
  • Helps make pores smaller
  • Makes skin smoother and cleaner

How to apply – 

IMG_4841

I first cleanse my face with my face cleanser, currently I am using the Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel. 

Then I apply the mask all over my face and leave the mask to dry for 30 minutes.

Once the wait is over, I rinse off the mask with warm water and my pores did actually seem to shrink in size. I liked the effect of this mask and cannot wait to keep trying it out to see if it continues to decrease my pores on my skin.

IMG_4900

I prefer this mask over the Incredible Face Mask because it is easier to apply and also easier to remove as sometimes the other mask does not dry up in all places and it is a pain to remove if you cannot peal off those pieces which did not dry up!

However, I liked both the effects of these masks! If you would like to try out the Incredible Pore Mask for yourself, then you can enter this discount code keziapore30 and it will give you 30% off your purchase! Shipping is free worldwide and it also ships to Malta!

IMG_4850
The finished result … my pores are not as visible as they usually are!

I really hope you enjoyed reading! I would love to know if you ever tried this mask before or if you tried other masks specifically for pores? Let me know in the comments down below!

Thank you for reading and thank you to MayBeauty UK for giving me yet another opportunity to promote their products!

Love Kezia

I hope you all had a great Easter with your family and loved ones!

IMG_4441

Today’s blog post is all about the brand called Anatomicals! I love the concept of this skincare brand that ‘Only Wants You For Your Body’! And it is also a cruelty free skincare brand! They have a variety of products from face masks to lip scrubs to body products too! I would like to thank Anatomicals UK for these products! I had fun trying them out and I really am grateful for this opportunity!

Today I will be sharing my opinion on some of the products from Anatomicals that I have tried out in the past week! So let’s begin!

#1 Anatomicals Face the World Masks (€2/£1 each)

IMG_4454

I love the titles of these masks!

I have only tried out the anti-stress face mask because I was having a stressful day so I needed some de-stressing pamper time! I love the smell you find once you open the packet – so chocolate-y – and there is a lot of product in the packet! In fact I saved the packet for another use as I did not use all the mask at one go!

IMG_4456

I love how it applied on the skin, felt so refreshing and cool! Left it on for 15 minutes and it dried up really quickly I must say, then gently rinsed it off. It came off easily without making a big mess and my skin felt smooth and soft! I loved it and cannot wait to try out the other two!!

#2 Body Lotion (I could not find it online at the time being but keep an eye out for this product!)

IMG_4448

I love the name of this lotion!! Smoother butts love coconuts – Coconut and Mango Body Lotion!! I love the smell of this body lotion reminds me of SUMMER!! Loved using it after having washed my body! It made my skin feel super soft and made my skin smell so good!! Love using it and it has become a staple in my shower routine!

#3 Stop Cracking Up Lip Balm (€3.50/£2.49)

IMG_4447

This Lip Balm has saved my very dry and very chapped lips!! Here in Scotland it gets so cold and my lips have become so dry! In Malta, I never had this kind of problem so this product came at a perfect time!! I LOVE …. BUT LOVE the smell of this lip balm it reminds me of hazelnuts! It comes out just like a gloss so your lips not only feel less dry but are glossy too!! WIN WIN!!

#4 Anatomicals Bichotin Charcoal Toothbrush (Could not find it online!)

IMG_4444

This is the cutest toothbrush I have ever owned! It’s yellow and pink and comes with a cute pink case too! I loved using it, it helps me get into those annoying spots which are hard to reach whilst brushing my teeth! Really loved this toothbrush – too cute!!

And those were all the products I tried out from Anatomicals! Again, I would like to thank Anatomicals UK for these products!!

Have you ever tried out any of these products? Let me know in the comments down below!!

Thank you so much for reading!! Join me again on Friday for another Blog Post!

Love Kezia

Sand and Sky – Pink Clay Mask – Honest Review

Hi everyone, 

Hope you all are doing great and having a lovely day!! Today’s blog post is all about a Face Mask that I am sure some of you guys have seen on social media!

IMG_3176

This mask is the Purifying Pink Clay Mask from Sand and Sky. I have already mentioned this mask on my blog as I genuinely love it. But this time I collaborated with Sand and Sky and I thank them so much for such an opportunity!!

What the face mask claims to do …

  • It detoxifies and brightens up the skin
  • It is made up of 100% natural Australian Ingredients and Pink Clay. It is Paraben free and other nasty ingredients.
  • It gives your skin a lovely glow and helps the skin regenerate. It also removes toxins and helps clear skin and shrink pores.

My thoughts on the mask … 

IMG_3146

When simply applying it onto my face I feel my skin feeling cool and then after it feels a little bit warm but dies down quickly. I apply it after I cleanse my face.

I leave it on for ten minutes and then wipe it off using a damp face cloth (dampened with warm water).

IMG_3163

After taking off the mask, I notice my skin to be brighter and freshened up. I also feel my skin ever so smooth. What I love most about the face mask is the fact that it decreases the appearance of my pores. It also cleans my skin and helps rid of red spots.

IMG_3141

For those of you who have acne or had acne and have acne scars, I think it is a face mask worth trying. I love how my skin feels after using this mask and like how it helped my cleanse my skin.

Here is a photo of my skin from before and after using the mask.  

proper

To view more information on the mask you can visit their website by clicking here.

Also a side note: for dry skin it is best to use just 1 to 2 times per week and for oily/combination skin best to use 2 to 3 times per week. Also, the website offers free worldwide shipping!

Have you guys ever tried out this face mask? Comment down below! Even if you haven’t, I would love to hear your thoughts on the mask. 

I really hope you enjoyed reading! Thank you so much for doing so!!

Love Kezia
