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!

7th Heaven – Dead Sea Mud Mask – Review

Hi everyone,

A few weeks ago I did a blog post all about 7th Heaven and spoke about the Manuka Honey Peel off mask. You can check it out right here.

Today, I shall be talking about the Dead Sea Mud Mask.

20170730_102712

Unlike the other mask I tried, this was a Mud Mask which meant that it was going to be messier than peel off masks. But, I wasn’t disappointed by the end result that it left me with.

Minerals found in the Dead Sea help clean our impurities and open blocked pores for cleaner and softer skin. So I am all about unblocking those pores and getting rid of them!

The main ingredients found in this Mud Mask were –

Dead Sea Salt – 

A mineral found in the Dead Sea. Dead sea minerals leave our skin feeling relaxed and nourished. I have tried multiple products from Arad which had it’s main ingredients from the Dead Sea. And I loved using their products, they did help my skin become cleaner.

The nutrients from the Dead Sea in this face mask help cleanse our pores, moisturise our skin and draw out any impurities, dirt and grime that we end up with because of today’s modern lifestyle.

Sea Kelp and Seaweed – 

These are, “large algae which grow in the seas and oceans around the world, or on rocks below the high-water mark.” Seaweed is, “high in nutrients, is a fantastic detox agent and could even improve the health of your heart. This slimy green plant could be a vital part of your beauty regime.”

The Seaweed and Sea Kelp in the face mask helps with moisturising our skin, “whilst fighting the signs of aging, helping you banish those wrinkles for good.” It can also be seen as a natural exfoliant, and helps with washing away the dead skin cells to leave your skin, “feeling fresh, clean and renewed.”

Lavender – 

Lavender is commonly used to treat skin disorders such as acne, wrinkles, psoriasis (which I am accustomed to!) and other inflammatory conditions.

Mud masks in general help with your daily cleansing routine in keeping your skin “super clean” and “less prone to blemishes and uneven skin tones.”

My thoughts – 

I applied the Mud Mask after having cleansed my face with my Vichy Normaderm Facial Cleansing Gel. 

I then applied the mask on a dry face using a flat foundation brush. I left the mask on for approximately 45 minutes. I KNOW I should have only left the mask on for 15 minutes as that it what it states I should do but it felt so cooling on my face I just wanted to leave it on. That and I was watching an episode of Saving Hope that I couldn’t pause it until it was finished!

But I really love how it left my skin looking so clean and so smooth. Throughout the day I felt my skin feeling refreshed and healthier. I do really recommend this mask and I prefer this one over the Honey Peel off that I tried before!
