Vichy Normaderm 3-in-1 Scrub + Cleanser + Mask – Review

Vichy Normaderm 3-in-1 Scrub + Cleanser + Mask – Review

Hi everyone, 

I did write in my last blog post that I will be posting an extra blog post this week!! And here is that post!!

I was so excited to work again with Vichy Malta. If you haven’t read my previous 2 posts testing out two other products from Vichy, then you can check them out right here –

Today’s product that I will be sharing with you all, is the Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 Cleanser + Scrub + Mask! Therefore, this product does all 3 things – Perfect no?

The Normaderm 3 in 1 Scrub + Cleaner + Mask claims to help the skin, it provides gentle skincare routine and relieves the skin from any oils and imperfections that we might have going on. The product has been tested on sensitive skin and it is a cleanser, scrub and mask with soothing properties. The Normaderm 3-in-1 has a clay like formula. It consists of purifying, anti-bacterial and keratolytic actions to keep imperfections at bay and leave your skin perfectly matte.

The Normaderm 3 IN 1 formula makes you choose how you want to use it.

Ways of using this product –

So you can use it as a mask and apply it once/twice a week depending on your skin type. Leave it on for 5 minutes then gently rinse away with warm water. Gently use circular motions to get that exfoliation going and gently exfoliate your skin.

Or you can use it as a cleanser/exfoliator and apply it once/twice a week, onto a damp face and rinsing it off with warm water. Additionally, as a scrub it helps with unclogging pores and gives the skin a smooth finish.

However you use Normaderm 3-in-1, be it as a mask/scrub/cleanser – it should only be used once/twice a week.

What do each of the formulas claim to do in the Normarderm 3-in-1 Cleanser + Scrub + Mask? 
1) Exfoliator: helps unclog pores. Cleans away excess oil and trapped dirt that lead to acne breakouts, prevents pimples and blackheads
2) Cleansing Cream: reduces sebum and impurities. Kills acne-causing bacteria without irritating the skin
3) Mask: Mattifies skin and clarifies complexion.

My thoughts …

So I was really excited from reading about the Normaderm 3-in-1 and seeing what it claims to do. I loved using it as a mask. I kept it on for a little over 5 minutes because it was so refreshing on my skin! Once I rinsed it off I saw my complexion had no shine whatsoever and the mask brightened my skin making it feel so fresh. It also decreased the effect of pores too!

One week I also tried it as an exfoliator and I think I will use it more as an exfoliator to unclog my pores as right now this is what my skin is struggling with the most. However, if you are looking to feel relaxed and refreshed I highly recommend that you use it as a mask.

After rinsing it off, my face looks clearer. Here is my natural skin look. 

I like the concept this product brings with it. The fact that this product can replace 3 of your skincare products is amazing!! It has definitely joined my skincare routine!

Thank you so much for reading everyone, have a lovely week!

Arad Dead Sea Malta – The Facial Cleansing Milk Review

Arad Dead Sea Malta – The Facial Cleansing Milk Review

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed the time with your family, friends and loved ones. I wish you all a lovely HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Today’s post is about a product from the brand called Arad.

I would like to thank Arad Dead Sea Malta for giving me this opportunity to try out and review their products. You can visit them right here on their Facebook Page – Click Here.

Therefore, keep your eyes out for a number of reviews from this brand in the upcoming weeks to come and maybe even a Giveaway!

I personally had never tried any of their products, especially since they are skin products. I tend to just stick to my day to day face products and never change them as my skin is quite sensitive. I also have acne prone skin and do breakout quite often.

However, I was curious to try out their products and so I did.

Before I go onto review today’s product I would like to give a basic overview of the brand Arad.

screen-shot-2016-12-27-at-14-03-45

On their website, they state that a source of their products is from The Dead Sea which is, “the deepest hypersaline lake in the world, whose unique mineral content has been used as a boon for healthy skin for thousands of years.”

Arad is made up of 26 minerals (such as Pomegranate, Propolis and Mari Coll n-30 extracts) which are found in the dead sea and together they make the Arad 26 natural skin care line.

What are these ingredients and what do they do? 

  • The Pomegranate is a powerful antioxidant, natural SPF booster and has Vitamins A & C.
  • Propolis is a natural ingredient and includes natural minerals and amino acids which are considered to have “antiseptic, antibacterial, water-binding and antioxidant properties.” It also includes Vitamins B compound that controls excess oiliness, pimples, irritability and redness. It also has a soothing effect on the skin.
  • Mari Coll n-30 is a high-purity, marine derived collagen that helps moisturise your skin, strengthens connective skin tissues and provides anti-irritant benefits.

These minerals come with plant-based ingredients that extract the purest of ingredients. The products are “preservative free, and most do not have additives such as parabens.”

Having read this about the brand I was curious to try out at least one of their products immediately!

Yesterday evening I tried out my first product, as it came time for bed I had to remove my makeup. Normally I would use my Vichy Pureté Thermale 3 in 1 but I used something different.

I used the Arad Facial Cleansing Milk – Make Up Remover.

This product states that it contains Dead Sea Minerals which helps to remove all kinds of make-up and eliminates skin impurities. It is specially formulated to leave your skin prepared for further absorption of facial creams that you would follow up with after.

It is enriched with calming plant extracts and is suitable for sensitive eyes and users of contact lenses.

I gently squeezed the product onto a cotton pad and began rubbing it against my face. My makeup instantly came off. It wasn’t harsh against my skin nor did it burn my skin or cause any irritation.

15785102_10210107777543599_183950634_o

I was surprised at how quick it removed the makeup, my cotton pad was full of all that gunk!

It then came time to remove my eye makeup – and I was surprised as it again did not irritate my eye area and it removed my eye makeup with one rub! Yes I did have to go rub again to remove my mascara but the eyeliner came off so quick where usually I would have to rub a few times until it has cleared!

When I was done, I knew that my skin was cleansed of all my makeup by noticing that my pores were emphasised and huge! Was I happy with that? Maybe not but this Facial Cleanser really does the trick at removing your makeup!!

I highly recommend this especially after a night out dancing with your friends! I know the feeling of just wanting to go home and get into bed without washing off your makeup! But with this product I am pretty sure that it would only take a minute or two and then you can jump into bed and snore all the way through to the afternoon!

Have you ever tried any products from the brand? If not, are you curious to try them out now? 

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Love Kezia

Jor’El Parker Fango Mud Therapy Review

Jor’El Parker Fango Mud Therapy Review

Hi everyone, 

Hope you all are having a lovely weekend !! Thank goodness it has finally arrived.

I have come to write on my blog to share with you a new product that I have tried and one that I really recommend you on trying.

I recently received my May Lip Monthly Bag (a video on that  will be out NEXT WEDNESDAY so stay tuned!!!) and found this item – The Jor’El Parker Fango Mud Therapy –  in the bag.

I never had heard of this brand or product so I was intrigued to try it out. And so I did without reading any reviews on the product !!

It comes in this orange tub, I probably got the sample size of it and it retails for $10. You could use this on your face and body. It comes in this thick texture and dark green colour. It smells very minty if you ask me. You apply this to your face or body and you leave it do its job for around 5 minutes. After which you rinse it thoroughly.

It is full of these amazing ingredients: 

  1. Sweet Almond Oil
  2. Avocado Oil
  3. Green Tea Antioxidants
  4. Volcanic Ash Minerals

And all these different ingredients serves for a purpose. 

  • It claims to protect your skin from harmful substances caused by the free radicals and pollutants found in the environment we live and breath in. 
  • Intensely moisturises with a hydrating blend of Sweet Almond Oil.
  • Softly rejuvenates with anti-aging Green Tea Antioxidants. 
  • Gently exfoliates with Volcanic Ash Minerals.
  • Minimises pores, reduces fine lines and deep cleanses. (This point made me more curious to try it out!)
  • Decreases dark circles and reverses sun damage. 
  • Purifies to bring out your body’s natural luster and tone.

So I tried out this product twice already and I love the effect that this leaves on my skin.

First thing I noticed you really do feel the product going into your skin and reaching its deepest points because I felt my skin was like on botox after the five minutes were up.

But once I rinsed off the mask I felt my face so fresh and well cleansed.

I wanted to try this out mostly because I have been getting nasty pores round my nose and cheek area. And also my nose was sunburnt from having supervision over the kids at work. (Not my kids haha because I work with children at a school)

So once I rinsed it off, the sunburn and redness on my nose decreased a little and seemed like my skin was nice and freshened up.

As you can see you will know once it has fully cleansed your skin – it changes to a lighter shade.

 

As for minimising pores I guess it does but do not expect miracles of course.

I guess I like the idea it has such natural products and I will be using this until I finish it. But then I will not be looking to buy it again simply because I never saw this in Malta haha!

Anyways I hope you loved reading this. Remember a new video will be up on Wednesday showing you what I got in my May Lip Monthly bag.

Happy weekend!!

Love Kezzie
