Anew Essential Youth Maximising Sheet Mask – AVON – Review

Hi everyone, 

How are all of you doing? 

So do you ever have those days when you just feel so tired, stressed and just need a break? Well recently, those days were more often than others and I needed something to keep me relaxed for a bit.

A few days ago Avon Malta kindly sent me this new Anew Essential Youth Maximising Sheet Mask and I finally found the time and the moment to try it out. You can order from Avon through their website – www.avon.com.mt or ask for their catalogue which they can send through their local representative. They could also provide a soft copy of the catalogue and they may send it through Facebook or Whatsapp or by email.  To order the products simply either get in touch with your Local AVON Representative or go directly to them.

So let’s get into the review!

Here is a photo of how my skin looked beforedull and in need of a good face treatment!

How I applied it –

It came in this cute golden packet which I cut open thanks to the easy instructions. Before applying it, I cleansed my face and prepped my skin for the face mask. I then gently took out the mask and you will notice a tip on the edge of where your forehead is. That marks the spot of the left side of your face. I gently applied it first on my forehead then past my nose, and then I pulled it gently down onto my neck.

My only concern was that when I applied it, it irritated my eyes a little, however this could be because of my poor application skills of sheet masks. But I rinsed my eyes with a little water and all was well.

I then left the mask on for more than 20 minutes even though on the packet it says to leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. But whilst I had the face mask on, it was so relaxing to be laying down on my bed with the mask on, I was feeling as though my skin was being refreshed. It was just a serene and calm moment.

What it entails to do –

This is an anti-ageing mask and it is formulated to help repair cells and firm the look of skin. It should help the skin look more radiant, plump and smooths texture.

It is formulated with phytol to help increase cellular metabolism and renewal, and to help improve skin’s barrier protection. [AVON Malta]

After continuous use it should start to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and makes skin look firmer.

 My thoughts – 

Here is how my skin looked after

As you can see it just looks more awake, refreshed, it felt so soft and smooth and I liked the natural glow that I was left with. Overall, I loved the end result and I stayed with the refreshed feeling on my skin throughout the day.

It was also a motivational factor to keep me going throughout the day and run the errands that needed to be done.

I recommend this face mask, if you are looking for an easy sheet mask, with refreshing effects!

Thank you once again Avon Malta for giving me this opportunity to test out this product, I enjoyed the experience!

Thank you to everyone who has read this blog post and liked it!

Until next time

My Summer Essentials

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a lovely SUNDAY! Many of you are probably celebrating today with your families and your dad’s. I know I am, we are soon going to have a good home cooked lunch.

Yesterday I uploaded a new video on my Summer Essentials. This was a collaboration with Ashley Stoyko, make sure you can visit her channel. And we decided of putting together our Summer Essentials. We decided on choosing 5 but we couldn’t stick with that and we chose more. I based my Essentials around 7 different items.

#1 – BB Creams

I love applying BB Creams in Summer. I can also create a makeup look with only my BB Cream and ignoring the foundation step. In summer putting on foundation during the day is a little bit stressful especially on our Maltese Islands unless you set it will and have a good setting spray (which I will mention in my next essential).

My favourite BB Cream is the Rimmel 9 in 1 BB Cream. I have a review all about this you can visit it right here.

#2 – Makeup Setting Sprays

We all need this in our collection especially during summer. In winter I tend to forget setting my makeup with one of these but in Summer if I forget it, I regret it!

My favourite setting sprays are – the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, the Avon Mark Setting Spray and the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray in the Peach scent.

#3 – Crop Tops 

I live in crop tops during the summer. I mostly buy them from H&M and they just make a summer outfit pop! I love wearing them with high waister shorts and sandals.

#4 – Hats

The two hats I own are from H&M and Primark. I love running around with them, doing my daily errands. A hat is your best friend in summer .. that and sunglasses and sunscreen – we cannot forget those!

#5 – Bikinis

I don’t go swimming much and I prefer going to a pool rather than the sea. The irony is Malta is known for its sunny beaches .. so yeah. But of course I still go, sometimes but I go. And I bought these 2 bikinis I showed on my video last summer from ebay and those are the ones I am using this year!

#6 – Lip Stains 

I love matte lips but in Summer I prefer lip stains. They are so lightweight on the lips and leave your lips moisturised. They last all day and there’s no way you will need to reapply these. I love using the MUA Inked Lip Stain – I love their formula and they are so soft on the lips.

#7 – Summer reads 

I love lounging on the beach or the pool with a book. I think I prefer reading a book rather than going for a swim and getting my hair all tangled up either with sea salt water or chlorine!

I have plenty other summer essentials but I would say that these are my basics!

What are your summer essentials? 

I hope you enjoyed reading my blog post, thank you so much for doing so!

Happy Sunday!

Love Kezia

First Impressions on AVON – ‘Mark by Avon’

Hi there makeup lovers,

How are you all doing? It’s Sunday – the perfect day to blog a little. This week has totally been a jam packed week and today I literally have nothing planned but to remain at home and just have some quality time to myself. I truly believe we all need this once a week!

IMG_8667

Yesterday, I uploaded my weekly video on my Youtube Channel and so here I am to blog all about it and the products I have mentioned.

On the video I tried out the products for the first time. However, I have now tried the products a number of times and can share with you all some more information on the products.

Firstly, I would like to THANK AVON Malta for giving me a lovely opportunity to try out these products! So for you all Maltese reading this post, if you are interested in these products you may either have a look at their websitewww.avon.com.mt or ask for their catalogue which they can send through their local representative.

They could also provide a soft copy of the catalogue and they may send it through Facebook or Whatsapp or by email.  To order the products simply either get in touch with your Local AVON Representative or go directly to them.

AVON recently released a new Makeup collection entitled ‘Mark by Avon’. The packaging of these products I truly am in love with. I love the font they used and the colour scheme too! I also love how AVON sent out all the products with a cute little tag describing the product! Even the cosmetic bag had one!

IMG_8668

The AVON mark Hanging Cosmetic Bag. I find that this bag is perfect for travelling and it can hold so many items and brushes – perfect for saving space in your suitcase!

The makeup products that I tried out were – 

IMG_8739

  • AVON True – Ideal Flawless Matte Liquid Concealer (This isn’t in the new Mark Collection)

IMG_8735

This concealer is one that I have reached for throughout this week. I love how it is so soft and creamy yet it is a high coverage concealer! The packaging is so similar to the Colourpop lipsticks which is just so cute! You get a lot of product and the shade I have mine is in Fair. This is not one of the new products from the Mark collection. I like how it is easy to blend and love using it to conceal under my eyes. When it is set well it doesn’t crease and truly does last all day.

Out of the products this has to be one of my favourites and it also is one of my favourite concealers I have ever tried. I have also used it to cover blemishes and sun spots. (because yes I just got my first one and am so sad about it!!)

  • AVON mark – HD Finishing Powder

IMG_8732

This powder is a translucent finishing powder that settles nicely onto the skin. I have used it both for setting my under eye concealer‘baking’ – and also setting my entire face. I preferred using it just for setting my under eye concealer as I think it is too much to set my entire face with it.

IMG_8734

I love how it settled under my eyes and it also set my concealer nicely too! It blends well and doesn’t leave a white flashback when taking photos. It gives a lovely ‘flawless finish‘.

  • AVON True – Super Extend Precision Eyeliner 

This again isn’t one of the products found in the new collection – Mark by Avon. I like how the line doesn’t come out streaky but the liner provides us with a pitch black line. The eyeliner itself is made in a way that you can take hold of it and have a solid grip without your hands shaking while creating the eyeliner look of your choice.

IMG_8723

However, after wearing this a couple of times and for an entire day I found that the liner transferred onto my eyelid and it also became so patchy. I would suggest to prime your eyes with a good eye primer and hope for the best.

  • AVON mark – Big and Daring Mascara

IMG_8726

IMG_8728

I love the wand of this mascara as it is short and curved – perfect shape to hit all of those lashes! It curls them so nicely however it doesn’t lengthen them as much! Therefore, this is more of a volumising mascara.

The mascara also separates the lashes nicely and doesn’t get them looking all clumpy.

  • AVON mark – The Bold Lipstick – Power Plum

IMG_8729

IMG_8730

IMG_8731

The packaging of this lipstick is adorable!! The lipstick is in a bullet shape and was easy to apply. It is quite lightweight and soft on the lips. It doesn’t have a scent whatsoever.

The shade I had mine was in Power Plum – which is a pinky/purple shade. It is a sheer formula lipstick and it doesn’t quite last long. Therefore, make sure to carry this in your purse if you are wearing it for a long amount of time!

  • AVON mark – The Makeup Prepping and Setting Spray

IMG_8719

This is my second favourite product out of all of these. I always forget this step when doing my makeup – that is the step of applying a setting spray. With this setting spray you can either use it before you apply any makeup or after. I personally prefer using a setting spray after as I like using a primer first.

This setting spray settles down nicely onto my skin and I don’t know if it’s the spray or the powder I use but I love how my makeup looks in the end after having used this spray. It tends to be a little sticky until it dries down completely however that stickiness decreases. The setting spray really does keep my makeup in place all throughout the day!

The makeup look I created using all these products

So those were the products that I wanted to write about today. What are your thoughts on these products? Have you ever tried them? Have you ever tried their other makeup products or skincare or anything AVON related? Make sure to comment down below!

Thank you so much for reading! 

Happy Sunday!

Love Kezia
