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!!

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

The Incredible Face Mask by MayBeauty UK -Review

Hi lovelies, 

I hope you are all doing well. This week I wrote a total of 3 blog posts and next week I am planning to write 2 more! So I hope you are enjoying my blog’s content!

Today’s blog post is all about ‘The Incredible Face Mask” by Maybeauty UK. I received some samples of this mask from MayBeauty and I have tried it out twice so it’s time for me write up a review about what I thought about this mask. Thank you so much to MayBeauty for sending out these samples!

IMG_4615.jpg

You can order it right here – https://maybeauty.co.uk/incredible-face-mask/ – the website offers free shipping worldwide!

Also, I have a discount code which is keziamask30 – were you can get 30% off your order!! 

What is The Incredible Face Mask? 

IMG_4619

The mask claims to clean the skin and remove impurities and dead skin cells that are stuck in your pores. The mask is absorbed by the skin, leaving a nice and smooth surface once the mask is peeled off.

Additionally, the mask removes Blackheads, prevents Acne and  removes excess oil and sebum. 

Once I had read this I was intrigued and excited to try it out.

How to use it … 

IMG_4629

Apply the mask on a dry face. I applied it with this brush that came with the samples. I found that this brush helped me apply this mask quite quickly! Be sure to NOT apply the mask on your eyebrows because it can remove facial hair!

Allow the mask to dry for 30-45 minutes – I love leaving it for the whole 45 minutes and love watching a tv show in the mean time. It is very relaxing.

IMG_4631

Once it has dried up then you can start peeling the mask off your skin. You should notice that attached to the removed mask, their should be blackheads and dead skin cells on it. That will show that it did a good job!

Once you remove the mask, make sure to rinse it with some warm water and you should feel your skin soft and clean.

My thoughts … 

So like I said I tried the mask twice and the application process with the brush I got helped me apply it quickly. However, I dropped a little in the sink, and it can get kind of messy, so be careful.

IMG_4636

I like leaving it on for the entire 45 minutes and then I start peeling it away. I love peel off masks because they are not messy to wash off unlike clay masks. My first experience with this mask was kind of a little bit painful because when I removed the mask around my cheek area I did cringe a little because pulling it off was harsh and left my skin a little bit red but no other irritation. But the second time I applied it, it hurt less because I evened out the application across my face to have an equal layer all around.

IMG_4637

Looking at the mask peeled off, I did find blackheads and dead skin cells attached to the mask so I knew it worked. My skin felt soft and clean and so clear after applying it for the second time! I will definitely be using the other samples I received because I loved the result!

How my skin looked after removing off the mask!

You could visit MayBeauty’s website to see some other products that they offer. There is a Face Gel, Pore Mask and even some hair products!! 

And that’s today’s blog post! Are you intrigued to try this mask out? Let me know in the comments down below!

Again, I would like to thank MayBeauty for the samples!

Before I end this post, I would like to add to those makeup lovers out there who are looking for Vanity Cases to store their makeup, I recommend Makeup Fix, they have a variety of vanity cases to choose from, that come in all shapes, colours and sizes! Check them out right here – https://makeupfix.co.uk/vanity-cases/

I hope you all have a lovely Sunday!

#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!!

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? I hope you are having a great week. Before we get started with today’s blog post, I wish you all a Happy Easter!! I hope you enjoy eating lots of easter eggs and you Maltese enjoy a ‘Figolla’ or two!!

Today’s blog post is all about the skin care brand called Aliza Naturals which hosts a variety of skin products, one of which is the Aliza 3 in 1 Face Cleansing Paper!

IMG_4331

That’s right face cleansing paper! This product was sent to me, so I thank Aliza Naturals so much for this product!

Basically, it is a three in one cleanser and makeup remover that helps purify and hydrate your skin, leaving it soft and clean. It is free from artificial fragrances, colours, gluten and ethanol alcohol. It is a new revolutionary way of washing your face! The product right now costs $24.95!!

IMG_4324

If you would like to see me use these cleansing paper, then you can watch the video I posted this week on my Youtube channel!

 

Benefits of the Ingredients found in the Aliza 3 in 1 Face Paper Cleanser –

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract – 

Great for moisturising and calming the skin.

Arnica Montana Flower Extract –

Improves the skin’s overall health and also moisturises the skin.

Royal Jelly Extract – 

Helps in reducing inflammation while also improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps prevent skin looking dehydrated and boosts firmness and elasticity.

This helps with the cleansing process and prevents blackheads and acne whilst also smoothing out the skin’s appearance.
Rose Flower Oil – 
Helps in soothing and nourishing the skin whilst also keeping it radiant.
Citric Acid – 
Helps rid dead skin cells and speeds up new cellular process, promoting new skin growth that can help alleviate the appearance of age spots.

How to use:-

Photo taken from www.alizanaturals.com
  1. Place 1-3 cleansing sheets in the palm of your hand.
  2. Moisten with water.
  3. Gently rub together until melted into a silky foam.
  4. Gently apply the foam to your face in circular motions.
  5. Rinse with water and pat skin dry.

IMG_4333

Which skin type is it good for?

  • Normal
  • Oily
  • Combination
  • Dry
  • Sensitive

My thoughts – 

IMG_4334

I find the concept so fascinating, that these three sheets can be washed away in soap and the soap just remove your makeup so easily. In the video, you saw what heavy eye makeup I had. But it went off in seconds! I have used this a couple of times now, and may I remind you that each pack comes with 50 sheets! It also is so compact and so easy to carry around!! Brilliant for packing on holiday because it isn’t a liquid!!

IMG_4322

But from all the times I used it, I love how soft it left my skin and it did not cause any irritation on my skin. I have combination and sensitive skin, just in case you are wondering! So yeah it did wash off my makeup and left it all clean and soft! And one final thing about the product is the packaging it comes in! It is so sleek and high quality, I love it!!

IMG_4325

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!!

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? 

IMG_2311

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 – 

IMG_2314

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 … 

IMG_2310

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!

IMG_2307

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.

IMG_2328
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!

IMG_2312
It joined the Vichy Family !!

Have you guys ever tried this product or any other Vichy product? Let me know in the comments down below!! 

Thank you so much Vichy Malta. Remember that if you are from Malta and would like to purchase this product, you will find Vichy being sold at various local pharmacies. The Normaderm 3-n-1 Cleanser + Scrub + Mask costs €12.90.

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

Vichy Dermablend 3D Correction Foundation – First Impressions

Hi everyone, 

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your Summer Vacation. I guess if you live in Australia it’s a different story!

Today I shall be writing away about a product that I have grown to love.

If you don’t know, I have acne prone skin and have been dealing with it ever since I hit puberty. I know that probably most of you out there reading my blog might have gone through that icky acne stage or are still going through it.

I still remain with acne scars and pores that are a little deep. Therefore, my skin ain’t perfect!  I have combination skin and I mostly get oily on my nose and my T zone. I also have sensitive skin and hints of redness especially near my nose. Sometimes I have a good skin day whilst other days I just have horrible ones.

IMG_0101.JPG

Here is a photo of my skin before having applied anything. It has gotten so much better throughout the years and I have to thank Vichy for that. I had gone to a dermatologist and he suggested to try out Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel. I started using it along with a skin cream called Skinoren and my skin has gotten better ever since.

I started trying out other products from Vichy and built my fresh skin routine. That will be for another post, but I just wanted to tell you that Vichy has helped me a lot with my skin issues.

IMG_0251.JPG

Today’s post is all about the Vichy Dermablend 3D Correction Foundation. You can also watch my youtube video showing you exactly how the foundation applied –

I would like to thank Vichy Malta for giving me this opportunity to try out this foundation and share it with my  followers!

This foundation is high coverage and one does not need to apply a lot to end up with a great result. Literally, a pea size amount is enough for the entire face.

The texture is thick and besides correcting your skin’s imperfections it also improves the look of oily acne-prone skin.

IMG_0253.JPG

It promotes that – 

  • It provides immediate texture correction
  • Helps conceal spots and breakouts of acne
  • Reduces the appearance of redness
  • Leaves the skin looking clearer
  • Mattifies the skin for a natural finish
  • Has SPF 25
  • Recommended by dermatologists and used by makeup artists
  • Non-comedogenic, paraben free and hypoallergenic 

My thoughts on this foundation – 

I found that applying it with my fingertips was better than applying with the brush that Vichy Malta gifted me. (Please note that the brush isn’t sold however it is gifted) I also then went over my application with a beauty blender.

The foundation felt so refreshing and cooling on my skin as soon as I applied it. I found that it instantly covered my blemishes, redness and imperfections.

IMG_0107

It felt nice and gentle on my skin, not tacky or cakey! It was completely matte and no shine was left on my skin.

IMG_0109

I did notice that my enlarged pores showed more especially around my nose. Therefore, using a pore primer beforehand would help there.

It lasted throughout the day without the need to powder it again. I loved how it made my skin look and feel.

IMG_0245.JPG

Besides it being a high coverage foundation, I also want to add and highlight that it includes salicylic acid and eperulin and these help soothe your skin and reduce the appearance of concerns.

I hope you enjoyed reading today’s post! Have you ever tried this product or any other product from VICHY? Comment down below !! 

 

Thank you so much for reading!!

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!

20170730_102725

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!

Have you tried any masks by 7th Heaven? Comment down below!

Thank you so much for reading!

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?
