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!

Is Thalgo’s NEW skin Range – Prodige Des Océans – the answer to achieving youthful looking skin?

Hi everyone, 

So a few weeks ago I was invited to a launch event by VJ SalomoneThe launch event was all about Thalgo, a brand from Paris which has recently been relaunched in Malta. (Visit Thalgo Malta’s Facebook Page) It consists of a collection of luxurious products for the face and the body.

18767064_10211505404403397_637036120_o

18765285_10211505403283369_340516244_o

The launch was dedicated to a new skincare range called Prodige Des Océans. At the launch the cream and mask were discussed. As well as the Face and Body ritual which is a 2 hour treatment to achieve total youthfulness and absolute relaxation.

18765169_10211505399163266_944925358_o

18199313_790750627759688_6086225003724705540_n

Thalgo found the ocean as the key component of their brand. The ocean holds several revitalising active ingredients that are easily absorbed by the skin. It took Thalgo four years of research to select the THREE main active sources with a high concentration of marine nutrients and to help with regenerating youthfulness and contains boosting properties.

Thalgo took the three active sources – Bioactive Seawater, Native Maritime Cells and a Multicellular Alga and extracted an active ingredient –

The Intelligence Marine Régénérative

This contains 63 marine nutrients that are patented by Thalgo that all reactivate 64 proteins which coincide to youthful looking skin.

In fact people who have used products from the Prodige Des Océans brand have confirmed that after 48 hours of using these products, correction of wrinkles, firmness, dryness, complexion and blemishes were noted.

Prodige Des Océans – The Cream – 

IMG_9617

IMG_9618

For whom is this? 

For all women, whatever their age or skin type, wishing to regain perfect skin.

This contains the most effective youthful boosting ingredients for a very luxurious formula. Of course these products retail at a very high price. Besides having the Intelligence Marine Régénérative, the cream also contains two plumping and smoothing hyaluronic acids, an extract of algae and an essential sugar. These all help to achieve total youthfulness revitalisation and helps with protection of the skin.

The cream helps reduce wrinkles and redefine features. The creams blends into the epidermis and helps to achieve total comfort and a soft finish.

You could use this cream at day or night. Simply apply to the face and neck, working gently upwards and downwards and avoiding the eye area.

Prodige Des Océans – The Mask 

IMG_9616

IMG_9611

For whom is this?

For all women, whatever their age or skin type, wishing to regain perfect skin.

This includes a revolutionary active ingredient –  3D Pure Oxygen Vector – with Hyaluronic Acid microspheres and Intelligence Marine Régénérative.

The Oxygen Vector helps improve the clarity in your complexion.

It has quite a foamy looking texture. Simply apply this all over your face avoiding the eye are and leave on for 5 minutes. This can be used twice a week. Or if you have tired or devitalised skin, then you can leave the mask on overnight for an intense infusion effect. The skin is replumped and reveals an incomparable radiance. Wrinkles are smoothed and features look smoother and softer.

My Thoughts – 

IMG_9626

When I attended the event they ever so kindly gave us this cute jewellery box. And a sample of the cream for the face and for the body and what I was so happy about is they gave us the mask too!

Left photo – with the mask one      Right photo – after rinsing off the mask

I was so excited to try them out! I have tried the mask for nearly a month now, only applying it once a week. The first time I tried it, after rinsing it off, my skin felt so smooth, soft and plump. You could notice that it did cleanse your skin and detoxify it. My pores were so visible after having rinsed off the mask – therefore the mask really got deep into the skin. I also never use that much product – I guess I am trying to save it as much as possible and not use it up all at once.

IMG_9619

IMG_9620
The body cream

I have applied the cream fewer times for both the face and the body. But when I did use it, even just applying it, the cream was doing its job as I felt immediate results. The cream left my skin feeling so refreshed and soft.

My skin is very sensitive but I did not have any bad reactions to the products. After all the products do come from the ocean – the most natural being.

Thank you goes to both Thalgo representatives who gave us an in-depth presentation at the Launch Event as well as thanks to VJ Salomone for the invite

I hope you enjoyed reading all about Thalgo’s recent skin care range. I had never heard about Thalgo but I am glad I did. 

Have you ever tried out their products?

April 2017 Favourites – Skincare, Hair products & Makeup

Hi beauty lovers, 

How are you all doing? Hope you are having a great start to the week!

IMG_8611

Yesterday, I released a BONUS video up on my channel and it was all about my April Favourites; ranging from hair products, skincare and makeup!

My April 2017 Favourites – 

IMG_8622

Tangle Teezer 

I love using this to untie my knots that seem to love my hair! I love using in this show before applying conditioner and before rinsing it off. This helps my hair in not getting too tangled after coming out of the shower!

TRESemme’ Salon Sleek Frizz Control Smooth Memory Spray

I love using this before straightening my hair and to keep my hair from frizzing after having had a shower!

IMG_8618

Arad Facial Cleansing Milk 

This has been my favourite product to use to remove my makeup! It literally takes off any makeup you could possibly use! It is so soft and gentle on the skin. You can click here to read an entire blog post all about this product!

Arad Mineral Facial Scrub

I have been using this in conjunction with my Vichy cleanser and have loved the combination. It really has helped my pores decrease in size and helped keep my face cleansed and clean. You can click here to read an entire blog post all about this product!

NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

IMG_8638

I have been using this primer constantly this month – as in April! It helps keep my makeup last longer and also helps create a nice base before applying other makeup products! It also helps decrease the look of pores!

L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Foundation

IMG_8623

I have been wanting to buy this foundation for a while now and now having tried it I can say it was worth the wait and the money! I would say this a medium to full coverage – very buildable! I love how it sits on the skin – not cakey whatsoever!

Collection  Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

IMG_8639

For the price it is amazing! One of my favourite concealers to highlight the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow and chin! And also to conceal under my eyes. It doesn’t crease and lasts all day!

Wycon Prime and Fine Powder

IMG_8640

This sets my foundation and concealer nicely. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and the shade is perfect and blends well!

Milani Baked blush in Berry Amore 

I love this blush – it’s like a mix of orange, pink and gold altogether! It has tiny glitter speckles which adds to the intensity and glimmer of this blush! I also love the packaging of the baked blushes by Milani!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

I have been wanting this product ever since I saw Kathleen Lights rave about it so many times! I ordered mine off ebay! I forgot to say in the video that it has an intense summer smell that makes you excited for beach and summer days. It just creates a natural and bronzed look. It is very light weight and not that intense – my favourite!

Sleek Precious Metals Highlight Palette 

The packaging is gorgeous and the highlights are amazing! My favourite shade is Antique Bronze which is a lovely gold cream highlight. Perfect for not pointing out your pores more as a powder highlight would!

Max Factor Natural Brow Styler

IMG_8636

I love this as it settles and tames my brows in place. It keeps them intact all throughout the day and dries clearly.

IMG_8634

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

This mascara has been an old favourite of mine. It just separates and lengthens my lashes nicely. It also doesn’t transfer on eyelids.

Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

Yes if you are doing a physical activity and you are wearing this – it may transfer on your eyelids. But it just lengthens and volumises the lashes ever so nicely!

Essence The Cushion Eyeliner

I had never used a cushion eyeliner before and let me just say this small pot really impressed me! It just creates a lovely intense black line!

Essence The Eyeliner Waterproof Pen

You can create a thick or bold line with this waterproof pen. It doesn’t move either! It is not patchy whatsoever although, as the day goes by it does become patchy and you might want to retouch it.

BH Cosmetics Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale- Beach Goddess Palette –

IMG_8616

This palette is just too cute. I love the shades they are all so natural and you can create different looks. My favourite shades from this palette are Fiji – a cream shade , Maui – a copper shade and St. Lucia – a bronze shade. The eyeshadows are also so pigmented and blend nicely together.

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Sizzle

You know that I love these lipsticks! I also includes this shade in my Favourite Spring Lipsticks video and couldn’t resist but to include this in my April Favourites too! I love this shade – it is a beautiful orange/red shade! This one isn’t patchy whatsoever!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip – Point Zero

I know that this doesn’t look like a spring shade but I loved wearing it this month and found myself reaching it for it more than I thought I would. The wand isn’t my favourite, but once applied I love the shade on my lips. It is like a brown/nude shade and has a bit of a satin shimmer finish. This was one of the collaborations Kathleen Lights did with Colourpop.

Favourite TV Show – 13 Reasons Why

Oh my god – if you haven’t seen this you really should! It is a Netflix TV Show made up of 13 episodes – 13 reasons why Hannah did what she did! It is a different story from what you normally see but worth watching because these things actually do happen and we need to have our eyes opened more!

Favourite Movie – Beauty and the Beast

This is such a cute movie. I normally do not like movies which have songs in them like musicals do. But I didn’t mind the songs in this movie! The costumes and the hair was amazing and I love the little cutlery dancing around the objects being animate. Watching this movie also brought back childhood memories of when I used to see the cartoon movie on tape!

What were your favourites of April 2017? Have you tried any of the above products?

ARAD Dead Sea – Black Mud Soap – Helps with Psoriasis

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday!

I wanted to come here and write up a small blog post all about the Black Mud Soap from Arad.

If you haven’t done so already, I regularly post reviews about products from Arad, and you can check the previous blog posts right here –

Also if you are Maltese you could also check out the Arad Dead Sea Malta Facebook Page!

Before starting the review I would like to share with you all that I have Psoriasis. It’s when the skin cells multiply up to 10 times faster than normal.

‘As underlying cells reach the skin’s surface and die, their sheer volume causes raised, red plaques covered with white scales.’

I usually get this on my scalp however, I now am getting this on the spine of my back. It is very irritating and if I do not use the correct products it only gets worse.

IMG_7705

Thankfully a product from Arad has calmed my psoriasis down. With that I am talking about this Black Mud Soap. This natural soap is enriched with minerals that helps in cleansing the skin and removing excess oils and dirt from your skin.

It is recommended for those who have normal to oily skin.

How do I use it?

17268913_10210796061870277_587152322_o

I do not use it every time but only every other time. Whilst waiting for the conditioner to set in my hair I apply this soap only to the regions whereby my skin is affected by Psoriasis; that is on my spine on my back. And I gently rub it onto it, leave it settle and then rinse it off. I then go ahead and shower as per usual.

My thoughts – 

17273486_10210796060110233_974433867_o

I find that this soap has helped calm down my psoriasis leaving my skin as normal as it can get!

For those of you who have Psoriasis, I know that it isn’t treatable but will stay with you for the rest of your life, so the only thing you can do is to keep it calm! And for that is the reason why I love this soap as that is what it does, it is so gentle on my skin and helps my skin breathe!

Have you ever tried this product or any other products from Arad? Comment down below would love to read your comments!

Happy Sunday and thank you for reading!

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.

download

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.

download-1

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

download-2

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 !!

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Facial Mud Mask – Review

Hi everyone, 

A week ago, I wrote up my first review on a product by the brand – ARAD. You can go check out a Maltese Facebook Page all about them by visiting Arad Dead Sea Malta. They have a variety of products!

In my previous post I introduced the brand Arad and gave a summary of what the brand offers, what ingredients are used and why are these ingredients beneficial towards our skin.

If you would like you can view this first post right here –

Arad Dead Sea Malta – The Facial Cleansing Milk Review

(I also gave a review of a product that I am still loving – the Facial Cleansing Milk – Makeup Remover )

Today’s post is another face product that I have tried around 3 times to be exact. And that is the Arad Facial Mud Mask.

images-9

The product states that the mud mask absorbs any excess oils and removes any dead cells and saborea that you might have on your skin.

It also unblocks clogged pores to allow all toxins and bacteria to find their way out.

images-10

It should also stimulate the skin cells to drink the natural rich humectants it offers; and contains calming plant extracts such as Chamomile and Aloe Vera and it is lightly scented.

My thoughts – 

(Excuse the Jammies but like I said I apply this in the MORNING!)

I apply this mud mask 2 times a week. It states on the tube that for oily skin you can use it 2 to 3 times a week; whilst for normal to combination skin you can use it 2 to 3 times a month. So before using it make sure you don’t over-use the product!

I first cleanse my face and then I dry my face using my face cloth. Then I would simply apply the mud mask all over my face and leave it for 15 minutes. (On the tube it says to leave it for 7-15 minutes but I like leaving it for the whole 15 minutes so whatever the mud mask needs to absorb it does so!)

I then rinse with lukewarm water and I will follow it up with my moisturiser and my normal face routine. I like applying this in the morning and it does help me wake up more refreshed and prepped for the day!

It doesn’t have a harsh smell, which is good but the best thing I find about this mud mask is that it isn’t messy at all! I sometimes find that with some face masks when rinsing them off, I won’t rinse them properly and I end up with a dirty and muddy face cloth to wash! However, with this one it is not the case.

I find my skin to be so soft after and I notice that my pores (I don’t know if this is a good thing) but they do show more. But I guess that means the face mask is doing its job by cleaning those little buggers out.

I do find my skin to be cleaner by using these products and shall be trying out a new product this week. Therefore, stay tuned for more reviews on Arad products soon!

Have you ever tried any of these Arad products? If not, are you intrigued to do so?

Thank you so much for reading!

Love Kezia
