REVIEW: Skin Republic – Bubble Purifying + Charcoal Foaming Face Mask Sheet (Oxygen Cleanse)

Hey girls, I bought two of these Bubble Purifying + Charcoal Face Mask Sheets from Skin Republic a few months ago from Superdrug and I never got around to trying them out… I signed up for the Look Fantastic* beauty box a few days ago and in my first box was another mask, so I thought I better get a move on and try one out.

The Bubble Purifying + Charcoal Face Mask Sheet is a sheet mask made from Activated Charcoal. When the mask is exposed to air, it starts to oxygenate and begins to bubble and foam. It cleanses deep into the skin’s pores eliminating impurities and toxins from the skin. It also contains Fruit Acids which helps to exfoliate dead skin cells.

It is also paraben free and not tested on animals

How To Use:

Cleanse your skin and make sure you rub the sachet before opening to activate the bubbles. Place the mask on the face and wear it for 10-15 minutes. When ready, remove the sheet mask and massage the excess bubbles and foam into the skin and then rinse with water.


Thoughts:

I LOVE this sheet mask. I’ve never used a foaming mask before but they are the future for sure. After a couple of minutes wearing the mask, I could hear the bubbles foaming and my skin felt tingly too. It was amazing seeing the bubbles appearing on the mask and after using it my complexion looks GREAT! It’s healthier-looking, I have a natural dewy shine on my skin and my skin looks clean and luminous.

When I removed the mask and rinsed with water I cleansed my face again. The cotton wool I used was dirty and because I cleansed super well before I put the mask on, I’m thinking it was the dirt and impurities which the mask had drawn out onto the surface of my skin. If so, amazing!

I think it may just be my new favourite mask and I can’t wait to use my others!

Coconut Milk Body Scrub from Pure Body Naturals – Review

Girls,

This week, I’ve put my coffee scrubs aside to try out the Coconut Milk Body Scrub from Pure Body Naturals who are another natural, cruelty-free brand based in America. They have a huge collection of fabulous skincare products, hair care products, essential oils and beauty accessories and they are fast becoming one of my favourite brands.

The Coconut Milk Body Scrub is rich in fatty acids and vitamins A, B and E, leaving your skin feeling nourished. Dead Sea Salt is a natural exfoliator which removes a build up of dead skin cells allowing fresh new skin to appear, making your complexion look amazing. It helps to protect skin from UV radiation and it also reduces symptoms of psoriasis, eczema and other skin conditions. The scrub is full to the brim with natural ingredients and fast-absorbing oils which all soften and moisturise the skin without irritating it. It can be used on both the face and body and because of the high content of oils and vitamins it works brilliantly as an amazing anti-ageing treatment, helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Thanks to the coconut milk it has a fabulous creamy texture with the slightest hint of coconut.

The ingredients are:

Coconut Milk, Sea Salt, Almond Oil, Safflower Oil, Sunflower Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Dead Sea Salt, Vitamin E.

What I thought?

I love coconut beauty products and this scrub makes me love coconut even more! As you all probably know already, I have psoriasis (very mild at the mo), so I’m super prone to dry skin especially on my knees and elbows. I haven’t noticed any change to my psoriasis just yet though. It hasn’t cleared my skin up but I suppose it’s still early days, eh! It has removed a few scales and softened my dry skin tremendously, it feels great! To use, you just simply scoop a bit of the coconut salt into your hands and apply it to wet skin, gently massaging in circular motions. After exfoliating and removing dead skin cells my skin feels so clean and soft and I slather loads of Fractioned Coconut Oil all over my body to make it super smooth and extra moisturised.

Even though it is a small 340g tub I reckon you will get 20+ full body treatments out of one tub, if not more. It all depends how much you apply to your skin each time and how often you use it. I have used it 4-5 times in a week and as you can see there is still lots of scrub left in the tub.

What I love the most about the Coconut Milk Body Scrub is that it contains absolutely nothing but natural, pure ingredients so I don’t need to worry about artificial ingredients which make my psoriasis a million times worse.

I will definitely be buying more when I run out!

Where to buy?

Amazon UK: here. £14.95 | American girls can get it on the Pure Body Naturals website.
