Recent Skincare Reviews*


Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! I've started my PhD work and it's going well although annoyingly I still don't have internet in my flat and Sky are being really useless about it! It's been a whole week and they still haven't sent an engineer out to me, I definitely won't be going with them again! Luckily I have wifi at work so I can catch up with things :) I recently went to two blogging events: #BloggersFestival and #BLFW and I picked up some skincare goodies so I thought I would share my thoughts about them with you. I also have dry skin so bear that in mind :)

*Bee Good Honey and Propolis 2 in 1 Cream Cleanser Travel Size £4.95

I really enjoyed using this Cream Cleanser and I can't really fault it! I found it took my makeup off nicely, even my eye makeup (although I haven't tried it with waterproof) and it left my skin feeling nic and soft. It has a slight pepperminty smell but it's not overempowering which is nice. The other day I took off my makeup after a night out with a makeup wipe and thought I got it all off.. I then used this cleanser and I realised how wrong I was haha! I might have to buy a few other products and see what else I like :)





Balance Active Formula *Hyaluronic Moisturiser (£6.99) and *Vitamin C Serum (£5.99)


I really wanted to like these but I'm afraid I didn't XD There's a serum and a moisturiser which is nice as you're then not mixing different brands. I liked that the serum had a pipette and it was quite lightweight and gave nice coverage. The moisturiser also felt nice on. The thing I didn't like about these two products is the smell, it had a sort of.. woody and earthy smell, I guess a bit like tea tree and I just couldn't get over the smell. It's such a shame as they feel nice on your face and they're affordable but it got to the stage where I didn't want to use it as I didn't like the smell so I didn't want to put it on my face :') I'm very fussy haha!

Balance Active Formula *Hyaluronic Moisturiser and *Vitamin C Serum review

*Kleem Organics Vitamin C Serum $35 / £22.80


I was really looking forward to trying this Vitamin C Serum when it was gifted to me as it has had a lot of positive reviews and it has 20% Vitamin C where usually serums have around 5% and I am really happy with it and find myself reaching for it every day. It has a slight citrus-ey smell too it but it's quite pleasant and I like the formulation. I find that one pump is more than enough for your face but where my skin is dry I prefer having more as my skin's annoying like that! And then when it dries your skin feels really nice and you can't feel that there's product there, if that makes sense! For someone with normal skin this would probably be enough but I need to find a good moisturiser to wear on top as my forehead gets dry some days and especially during Winter :)

*Kleem Organics Vitamin C Serum review

*Weekenders Skincare Kit (minus bee venom) by Deborah Mitchell £28

I really like this weekenders kit and it feels like a little mini pamper whenever I use it XD The only thing I found was that the moisturiser it came with is quite thick so it didn't really go a long way and I feel like I needed to use it sparingly otherwise I'd use it up really quickly. Where my skin is dry I liked the thickness but yeah again it would be gone in no time as you don't get much in a pot :)

*Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish £57.50

I think my favourite product that I received was this Face Polish but it's also the most expensive. I was recommended this product as I have dry, sensitive skin and it sometimes goes quite dry and patchy on my forehead and around my eyebrows, so annoying! So they gifted me this face polish which I use in the shower, usually on days when I wash my hair. I like the smell of it as it's really gentle and I'm not a huge fan of perfumey smells. The microbeads are also really gentle and it washes off super easy :) So all in all I really like this product, I found a little bit definitely goes a long way and it should last a long time, however it is pricey :)

Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish



So those are my thought on my recent skincare pieces! Have you ever tried any of these? I'm currently looking for a face cream if anyone can recommend any? :)

*Even though these products were gifted to me all opinions are 100% my own :)

  39. They look nice as travel products, especially the first with the two in one feature. It’s a shame you couldn’t like them all but I think you have to work out what your skin can take & use different products from different brands.
