Skincare Products I've Been Testing Out


These skincare products were included in the goodie bag that I received from the Glamour Beauty Festival this year. I thought I would share with you these two cleansers and face mist as I've been really enjoying testing them out. I've been using these products for awhile now and only have a little amount left in each. What I like about these skincare bits is they work great with my dry skin, are very gentle and they don't dry out my skin any further.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, 50ml, £12.50
This cleanser is extra gentle, removes everyday impurities and makeup even mascara without stripping the skin of essential moisture. It also works to tone, soothe, and soften the skin for a radiant, healthy-looking complexion. This cleanser has a gel consistency so I've been using it in the shower. What I like about this is, the description is 100% right about not removing moisturise from your skin, it does not dry out my face at all! A lot of gel cleansers and face washes I've used in the past have so I'm really loving this one doesn't do that. It's very gentle and even when I use it on my eyes it didn't sting them at all. I'm not sure about the claim that it makes skin radiant though, I haven't seen a noticeable difference with that really.

Here's a little rundown of the ingredients; Amino acid-rich soy proteins that help maintain elasticity and healthy skin, Rosewater for its calming and balancing properties, Cucumber extract aids in soothing the skin and Borage seed oil helps to nourish. This cleanser is for all skin types but I've found it is especially kind if you are on the drier side. I completely agree that it's booth soothing and nourishing, after using this my face feels clean and left hydrated. The one thing I don't really like about this cleanser is the smell as the mixture of cucumber and rosewater is something I'm really not keen on. 

This product is my fave out of the bunch to use recently because of hot it has been lately. This face mist instantly refreshes skin and protects it from external aggressions that dehydrate skin: UV, pollution and oxidation. It's targeted for dehydrated skin and contains SPF 30. It can even be used over makeup. It combines antioxidant pomegranate, hydrating glycerin and UV filtersI really like how after using this spray it leaves skin feeling very soft. It doesn't leave a film over face, it's not sticky and it gives skin a boost of hydration and protects the skin which is great. One thing I wish about the product is that it would have more of a cooling effect to it as I feel like other ones on the market are. But I've been liking throwing this product into my handbag and using throughout the day as the bottle is quite small. I'm not a fan of floral smells normally but I actually like the smell of the pomegranate extract in this.

This cleanser traps impurities in the skin (sebum, pollution, oil & traces of makeup) so they can be wiped away easily. Moisturises and soothes the skin so it is clean and soft. The fragrance of orange and lemon blossom, watermelon and mint leaves. Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. I have been enjoying this micellar water to remove my makeup with because it literally makes makeup glide off my face really easily. I don't have to scrub to remove makeup even mascara! It is gentle on the skin and my face feels really clean after using it.  However, this is another one where I'm not too sure I like the scent. I like the bit of lemon that comes through but the watermelon scent overpowers it a bit too much.

So overall, they are lovely products and I'm actually quite sad that I'll be finishing the face mist soon. I am defo going to get another one of these when I run out to carry around this summer. One product that I do like switching up and trying lots of, is cleansers. I already have three on my beauty wish list so I will be trying out those instead of getting these again. I would love to know which skincare bits you've been trying out?

  4. I was hoping to read a review on the Garnier SPF spray, after I read about it in Glamour magazine. It's really great that it works well over makeup, will look into that! I've been using my Pixi glow tonic regularly now (which I really like), and I picked up some more bits from the Body Shop but haven't used them much yet :) xx

  5. I remember spraying the Garnier mist in Boots and it felt as if it was spitting on me, I wasn't really a fan. I should probably try another one, maybe it was a dud. I really want to like the product
    p.s I've just followed you on bloglovin as I have been enjoying your posts!

  6. Definitely need to pick up that Garnier spray as I've just bought a new foundation (Laura Mercier Candleglow - just reviewed on my blog!) which I love, except it doesn't have SPF protection. It sounds perfect to just spray over the top!

    I also struggle to find gel cleansers that don't dry out my skin, but I'd recommend the Eucerin DermoPurifier one!
