7th Heaven Face Masks – Manuka Honey Peel Off Review

Hi everyone, 

In the following weeks you will see me review some of the 7th Heaven Face Masks. They have such a variety of face masks available, all with different beneficial skin ingredients packed inside them

I love applying a face mask once a week and relaxing a little. I think we all need it on our skincare routine!

I never had tried these face masks by 7th Heaven before so I was really excited to try out the first one. I chose the Manuka Honey Peel Off face mask.

A peel off mask is not messy, gentler on the skin and you can relax while it soothes into your skin.

Here I am having just applied the mask

I left the mask on for 30 minutes, I then gently pulled it off and rinsed my face. My skin looked so refreshed.

Here I am with the mask after having it on for around 15 minutes

After having peeled off the mask I noticed that my skin looked smoother and fresher. It also peeled off some of my whiteheads – therefore this mask really does thoroughly cleanse my skin.

Here I am after having rinsed off the mask

The main ingredients for this mask were – Aloe Vera, Manuka Honey and Jasmine.

Aloe Vera – This helps people who have an oily skin texture as it moisturises the skin without leaving it feeling greasy.

Manuka Honey – This has lots of antioxidants and besides it reducing signs of ageing it also helps moisturises and soothes the skin. Honey also helps open up any pores, and this makes it easier for the skin to get cleansed and for the pores to become unclogged.

Jasmine – This helps in rejuvenating the skin and it also helps those with dry skin.

I cannot wait to try the other masks!

Arad – Facial Scrub – Review

Hi everyone, 

I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday. The weather in Malta looks bliss!!

Today’s blog post is all about another post on an Arad product! As you know if you have been on my blog for quite a while, I have been posting reviews about Arad products!

If you haven’t seen them already be sure to check them out, here are just a few – 

IMG_8619

Today is all about this Facial Scrub that I have been trying out for 2-3 months. I do not use it every day but I use it in conjunction with my Vichy Cleanser to regulate my acne prone skin. And since the Vichy Cleanser was recommended by my dermatologist I could not stop using it completely.

So what I have been doing is switching the two everyday and I found that this worked. I guess in the end you just have to simply experiment and see what products work out for you. Therefore, this may have worked out for me but it may not work out for you if you have acne.

So what is this Arad Facial Scrub? 

IMG_8620

This scrub is formulated with ‘Dead Sea Mud‘ and ‘Natural scrubbing particles‘ to help with cleanse your skin and pores and help in ‘rejuvenating the look of the skin.’

It contains ‘Bees Wax‘ and ‘plant extracts’ which act as ‘skin conditioners‘ to help ‘sooth and calm the skin.’

How to apply it – 

Rinse your face as normal, then with your fingertips apply the scrub in circular motions all over your face and avoiding the eye area; do this for one minute or so. Then gentle rinse off.

You could then apply the Arad Day Moisturiser and the Arad Night Cream after. The moisturiser I use is the Arad Hydro Light Moisturizer for Oily Skin.

My thoughts – 

IMG_8621

What I like about this scrub is that it isn’t too messy. Even though it has these tiny particles which annoy me, they are easily rinsed off. These particles are the ‘Apricot Seeds‘ which helps in cleansing pores.

Now since I have been using this for a while, I have noticed that my pores are getting slightly smaller. They do not disappear so don’t expect magic. However, they have decreased in size; that makes Kezia very happy!

The scrub makes my skin feel soft and smooth and cleanses my skin thoroughly!

If you are Maltese like me, you can visit Arad Dead Sea Malta’s Facebook Page for more information.

Have you ever tried this product or any other product from Arad? What are your thoughts? If you haven’t, are you intrigued of doing so? 

Thank you so much for reading! 

Happy Sunday!

Sephora – Algae Face Mask Review

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all having a LOVELY week!

Yesterday’s vlog (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNi4urCHwAo) included a face mask that I tried out for the first time last weekend.

16910879_10210624203853934_81511364_o

I got the Algae Face mask from Sephora whilst I was in Rome. I was having a bad skin day and decided to pamper myself a little for the evening.

Each face mask that Sephora provides has a natural lyocell fibre masks, each with skin care benefits.

What it should do – 

16930651_10210624203813933_735871149_o

Each mask has a different active ingredient for relaxing the skin and gather a better and brighter complexion.

The Algae Face Mask helps to detoxify the skin and get rid of any impurities that cause dullness and replace them with a fresh and radiant complexion. It does not include any parabens and the products are animal cruelty free.

My thoughts – 

After applying the sheet onto my face – something I had never done before – apart from it feeling strange, it actually felt refreshing. I kept it on for around 25 minutes and then took it off.

The first thing I noticed was that it left a shine-y finish; I thought that was because I didn’t need to rinse off the mask. But the shine and oily-ness remained even after hours having applied the mask.

The mask did leave a nice freshened up look on my skin however, I did not like how oily it made my skin. So I guess I wouldn’t choose the algae one again, instead I would choose another type of mask.

Have you ever tried any of the Sephora Face Masks?

Arad Dead Sea – Eye Contour Balm

Hi Everyone, 

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!! I am back with another blog post on a product from the Brand Arad.

If you haven’t seen my previous blog posts about this brand and other products you may do by clicking on one of these links (on the first post there is also a summary of what the brand in general offers!) –

If you are Maltese like me, then you can also go and visit Arad Dead Sea Malta‘s Facebook Page!!

img_7711

Today I shall be reviewing the Eye Contour Balm from Arad. I find that under my eyes I tend to get dry skin therefore, a little moisture would go a long way!

img_7713

The Eye Contour Balm contains minerals from the Dead Sea and also includes Vitamins and Whey Proteins that help to maintain the below actions and benefits

  • It helps to soften up any fine lines and wrinkles that your skin may have
  • It helps to smoothen and firm the skin around the eye which is very delicate
  • It helps to minimise puffiness
  • It also helps to delay any future signs of ageing

img_7717

How I apply it – 

It comes in a white creamy formula and I apply it with my ring finger and gently tap the product under my eyes. I also apply it to the sides of my mouth as I do also tend to have dryness round that area however, not as much as under my eyes.

img_7718

I use this product every morning and evening after I have applied all of my face products therefore, this is the last step to my morning and evening skin care routine!

My thoughts –

This product has helped my under eyes to not be as scary puffy as they would normally be. But I love this product for helping my dryness underneath my eyes decrease. It really did help in smoothing my skin out!

Have you ever tried this product? Have you ever tried any other product from Arad? 

Thank you so much for reading! Have a lovely weekend!

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Exfoliating Facial Gel Review

Hi everyone, 

I hope you are all having a lovely Saturday! 

Today I am here to share with you a product I have been using for the past 2 weeks!

As you all know I have been testing out products by Arad. You could visit the Arad Dead Sea Malta Facebook page right here – https://www.facebook.com/ARADMALTA/?fref=ts

I also have written previous reviews about other products and in my first post also gave a summary about the brand. You could check them out all right here –

Today I am reviewing the Exfoliating Facial Gel. I use it twice a week after I cleanse my face.

16522309_10210471400833954_859770819_o

What I like most about all these products is that they all contain such great ingredients which are a helpful factor towards gaining healthy, soft and smooth skin!

The Facial Gel’s formula is said to deeply cleanse your skin and leave it “smooth and supple.”

It contains Jojoba seed oil, which is a natural skin conditioning emollient that is empowered by the exfoliating apricot seeds found inside. So I am guess that these should help in getting your skin to be as soft and supple as can be!

16466358_10210471401393968_162375325_o

On the tube it says to apply over a wet surface however, what I do is I cleanse my face as usual then lightly dry it with a face cloth and immediately apply this exfoliant after.

I find that this way it is more effective and hopefully in this way the exfoliant is getting under my skin more and releasing it off any impurities.

I apply it with my finger tips and onto my skin and rub it gently in circular motions. I let it sit for a bit and then wash it and apply moisturiser and the rest of my skin routine as per usual.

16466694_10210471404954057_248249715_o

What I do NOT like about this exfoliant is the little bits it has in it. I find it hard to rinse them off and even as I am applying my moisturiser they are still there.

Apart from them, I like using this exfoliant to freshen up and smoothen my face.

However, I have to add that the Arad Facial Mud Mask leaves my skin way softer than the Exfoliant Facial Gel.

Have you ever tried this product or any other Arad Product?

Thank you so much for reading!

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Fluffy Liquid Soap Mousse Review

Hi everyone,

This is my fourth post reviewing an Arad product!

I truly am impressed by what these products are doing to my skin. I love the feel of them on my face and now even all over my body!

If you would like to see the other three posts (with the first one giving you a summary of what the Arad brand is all about) then have a look on these posts –

Arad Dead Sea Malta – The Facial Cleansing Milk Review

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Facial Mud Mask – Review

Arad – Hydro Light Moisturizer for Oily Skin – Review

Also, for those of you who are Maltese you can head on over to Arad Dead Sea Malta‘s Facebook Page.

Today’s review is on a body product called The Fluffy Liquid Soap Mousse. It is one of the new products from Arad. I was so hesitant on using this as my body is so sensitive and when I change products it would just set an alarm all over my body; and I could end up with red patches on my skin!

But due to the ingredients being so natural such as Aloe Vera and Vitamin extracts, those red patches I feared never showed up! I was so glad and so I tried it a couple of more times and here I am now being able to write up this review for you guys!

It is described as a “special soaping experience!” It comes out as a “cloud of fluffy soap” that should melt on your skin whilst cleaning and nurturing it. It is enriched with Dead Sea minerals such as Aloe Vera extract and Vitamin E.

It also states that it may be applied to all skin types.

 How did I apply it?

images-7

Well, on the bottle it states that you have to shake it and then turn it upside down and simply push the handle. Honestly, it truly did come out like a cloud of fluffy soap!! You could compare it to when you push out whipped cream out of the can! Then you simply rub it all over your body and rinse.

The soap itself is so soft and when you glide it onto your skin it just feels so gentle on your body.

Now it does have a weird smell of men’s after shave when you put it on BUT this smell gradually lessens as you rinse it off your body. Therefore, if you do not like men’s after shave then do not use it as you might not like it!

For me personally it did not bother me!

My thoughts – 

I can say that I have replaced my everyday body wash with this product as I am so happy with it! Not only does my body not flare up into red patches of mayhem but my skin feels so smooth and soft!

I definitely recommend this product, and it is a perfect product to use when you are having that spa day in the comfort of your own home; while taking a bubble bath to get rid of all the stress of the week!

Have you tried any of the Arad products? What do you think of this product?

Arad – Hydro Light Moisturizer for Oily Skin – Review

Hi everyone,

I am writing another post on a skin care product that I have been trying out from the brand Arad.

For those of you who are Maltese you could check out the Arad Dead Sea Malta Facebook Page.

You could check out my previous 2 blog posts on a summary of the brand Arad and a review of 2 products right here –

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Facial Mud Mask – Review

Arad Dead Sea Malta – The Facial Cleansing Milk Review

Today’s product that I shall be reviewing is a Moisturizer. Specifically it is called the Hydro Light Moisturizer for Oily Skin.

Now I have combination skin however, it is mostly oily. I do get a little dry around my nose – that is mostly it. I also have acne prone skin.

The moisturiser is an extra light textured cream and is specially formulated to regulate the moisture of oily and problematic skin.

Arad’s Dead Sea Minerals in this product enhanced with other natural ingredients and calming extracts should help to reduce irritation and keeps the correct moisture level.

My thoughts – 

images-13

I use this product daily in the morning. I cleanse my face as I do every day and night however, in the morning I would apply this right after. I apply the cream – as it is formulated like a cream – all over my face and neck.

It feels soft and gentle on my skin and as with all products that I have tried so far from Arad, it refreshes my skin.

There is one thing I do not like about this product and that is the smell. It has a weird scent that is not quite my favourite.

I do like the feel of my soft skin right after I apply this.

Even though this is for oily skin, where my skin usually gets dry i.e. my nose – it really hasn’t gotten dry, but still feels moisturised.

Therefore, I like the overall formula of this moisturiser apart from the weird scent.

Have you ever tried out this product? Did you ever try out a product from Arad? 

Thank you so much for reading !!
