A few weeks ago I told you about the Konjac Sponge, a beauty sponge innovation made from the Konjac Potato (native to Asia). To cover some of the alleged benefits in a few lines, the reason for using this special potato is because it’s entirely natural, dye free, biodegradable, full of vitamins, exfoliates, generates more bubbles if you use it with your foamy cleanser etc etc. It’s like a magic sponge *puffs smoke*. […]
When I first saw a Konjac sponge, the first thing I thought was, OOH KOJAK! Followed by, they look tasty. But no silly, you can’t eat them! The Konjac Sponge (from £6.99) is a Japanese skin care product, made from pure Konjac plant root mixed with volcanic spring water. The Konjac Plant is from the potato family and grows in Asia – the flour has been used to make noodles (as a thickening agent) and […]
It’s really no fun having a sensitive, itchy, spotty sore scalp. I’ve been there, in fact, I go back there every time I use a product that doesn’t suit my scalp or I am under stress and my body reacts by punishing my skin. I generally use SLS free shampoo products although I have found a few exceptions that don’t make me flare up too badly too. Anyhow, when your scalp is unhealthy, you will […]
When I read that Kleenex had released some skincare products I rolled my eyes…big roll…like really?! Nevertheless I was intrigued… When the products arrived I was rather pleased; Kleenex didn’t launch a range of facial washes or soaps, no, they stuck to what they know – tissue! There are 4 products in the range all nicely packaged: Facial Cleansing Wipes and Eye Make Up Removal Wipes £2.99 each for 24 wipes….
The amount cotton pads I go through to remove my piles of eye make up definitely concerns me; I wear super long wearing tough mascara which takes a few pads to remove, then there’s my foundation, lipstick etc… So I was quite pleased to get my mitts on these Washable Cleansing Pads from Love The Planet. These pads come in a pack of 5 and are made of cotton. You get them in a wash […]
I love cleansers! Cream type, Balm type, Foam type, Gel type, Oil type – it doesn’t actually matter what type but if it looks good I will give it a go. I’ve been trying out more things from Boots No. 7 Skincare lately and I think its pretty decent stuff especially the newer ranges (Protect & Perfect and Life & Luminate). One of their newer additions is the Hot Cloth Cleanser, similar to the other […]
I am trying to find the ideal skincare range for me at the moment – lets just say my skin can’t take anything too complicated or it itches and flakes like crazy. One thing I am always buying is Cleansing Oils. I’ve tried so many and to be honest, most of them are pretty decent irrespective of price. Thus, I always pick up a new one each time I run out just to try everything […]
Cleansing cloths are everywhere aren’t they? Suddenly, they’re not wet wipes. They’re cleansing cloths! I do use these wipes for when I’m swatching, but never ever just to clean my face. It never feels totally clean to me and makes me skin a little irritated. When I saw these Japan release facial wipes from Biore, I just had to try! You get a pack of (fairly small) 46 cleansing cloths. They feel wet without being […]
