Review: Spa – Eye Make-Up Remover Pads With Aloe Vera (Home Bargains)

Hey chicks!

Thought I’d do a little review on these Eye Make-Up Remover Pads With Aloe Vera by Spa which I got from Home Bargains. I always get the Spa face wipes as I like them a lot and I seen these Eye Make-Up Remover Pads when stocking up on wipes last month and thought I would give them a go to see if they work on stubborn eye make-up. I really can’t remember how much they were – I think it was something like £1 for a twin pack and there are 30 pads in one pack so you get 60 pads altogether, a great little bargain hey.

The wipes are made in Israel and they are suitable for all skin types. They are also alcohol free so they are unlikely to dry out the skin and claim to be pH balanced although it doesn’t list the exact pH levels on the pack. The packs don’t have the cruelty-free bunny either and it doesn’t state whether or not these have been tested on animals so I’m assuming they have been but I may be wrong.

The pads come in a small lilac packet which has a resealable label to prevent moisture loss. The pads themselves are quite small, square-shaped, very moist and they have a nice subtle fragrance too.  I’ve been using these for a couple of weeks now, just a little over a month to remove my mascara and eyeliner and I use about 2-3 pads each time depending how much I’m wearing. They remove mascara well from the eyes and they don’t irritate my eyes, or burn or sting which is good. I haven’t tried them with waterproof mascara or eyeliner yet as I don’t use them but I reckon they will work quite well.

I was also using them on my entire face and neck to remove my foundation, concealer, powder and blusher from my face and they do remove every trace of dirt and oil. For a while, I actually preferred the small pads over the full-sized wipes but I soon changed my mind when I broke out in blemishes and drier skin a week or two later.

The Eye Remover Pads do contain perfume in the ingredients list and my sensitive skin does usually break out when using products with perfume in so I’m not surprised I got a few blemishes. From now on, I will only use the pads to remove eye makeup and I won’t be using them to cleanse the rest of my skin.

Fragrance Free & Hypoallergenic | Body Deodorant Roll On from Crystal – Review

Hey, hey..

So, another deodorant review today as I’m still on the hunt for one that doesn’t kick off my parfum allergies as well as finding one that is long lasting, gentle on my sensitive skin and keeps my sweaty pits stink-free.

What I’ve been using?

Two weeks ago I started using the hypoallergenic and fragrance free Body Deodorant Roll On from Crystal and I have mixed feelings about it to be honest, I came across the deodorant on Amazon UK and I was expecting nothing but good results from it. I had the impression that it was the perfect deodorant for those with sensitive skin, skin disorders and fragrance allergies.

What Crystal say:

Crystal is the world’s leading natural mineral salt deodorant for a reason. It works to prevent odour while other products attempt to mask it or plug pores with aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium. Crystal is safe, healthy and totally effective. That’s why millions around the world use it every day. What makes our award-winning products so special? Unlike most products, Crystal prevents odour before it starts by creating a layer of odour-killing barrier that lasts all day. Our best-selling product, this Crystal-infused unscented Body Deodorant Roll-On goes on lightly, unlike most roll-ons sold today. It’s smooth rolling ball feels great going on, while the power of 100% natural mineral salts naturally eliminate odours all day long’.

Ingredients:

Aqua, Potassium Alum, Cellulose, Sodium Bicarbonate, Benzoic Acid, Zinc Gluconate.

What I liked?

I liked how it was fragrance free so it didn’t cause me any migraines like most other deodorants do. It really doesn’t smell of anything at all and unlike other deodorants, it contains a very small list of ingredients. It didn’t sting or irritate my sensitive skin and it didn’t leave a sticky, wet residue after applying it. The packaging is attractive and I love the purple colour of the lid and the fact it is a unisex deodorant.

What I didn’t like?

Sadly, this deodorant didn’t keep my pits dry and I had sweat patches within half an hour of applying, which was pretty embarrassing. I do sweat easily but I even found I had sweat patches when just sitting down watching TV.

Also, it didn’t keep the B.O at bay! Within an hour of applying the roll on to my armpits, shortly after the sweat patches appeared came the pong. I shower twice daily, morning and evening but whilst I was trialling this I lost count of how many showers I took and I certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable enough to go about my day or exercising whilst wearing this as I really don’t trust that it will keep me smelling fresh. You girls ever took a shower and forgotten to apply deodorant. Well, basically I felt like I had no deodorant on at all.

I definitely won’t be buying it again and the two I bought will not be getting used anytime soon but I do really like the idea of fragrance free deodorants so I will definitely try some of the other deodorants by Chrystal, they have quite a few different ones so maybe next time I’ll get a spray instead and read a couple of reviews before I purchase another.

Where to buy?

If you still want Crystal’s fragrance free body deodorant in your life regardless of my review you can get it here from Amazon UK. It’s £7.19 for two 50ml bottles.

I bought mine for £2.99 each on Amazon Pantry right here which is a pantry and grocery store which is available to Prime members only.

If you gorgeous girls have any recommendations of some fragrance free deodorants that actually work, I would love to hear about them!
