Review: Avene Gentle Milk Cleanser and Thermal Water Spray

Avene Cleanser and Thermal Water
R- mini Gentle Milk Cleanser L-small Thermal Water Spray
I won these Avene goodies back in May but fell behind on my skincare reviews so I’m only getting around to writing about them now.
 
First up we have the mini Gentle Milk Cleanser (50ml) which is a no-rinse formula (something I’m not a fan of at all,) that is designed to gently remove make up and leave the skin feeling perfectly cleansed.

Review: Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer

 
Following on from my Liz Earle skin consultation back in June, I was really looking forward to trying the Cleanse and Polish and the Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer that came in the goody bag that I received.
 
I’ve heard great things about Liz Earle from various different people, blogs and magazines so I interested to see how they’d fare on my skin.

Review: Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Fortifying and Soothing 24hr Hydrating Cream

I picked this up in Boots recently, it wasn’t the Vichy moisturiser I went in there looking for but it caught my eye so I bought it.
 
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Fortifying and Soothing 24hr Hydrating Cream (phew, what a mouthful) cost me just under €20 for a 50ml jar (I paid with my points though, so happy days,) and according to Vichy it leaves skin ‘intensely hydrated, skin feels soothed. It feels supple, refreshed and velvety- soft. Sensations of tightness are reduced all day long. The skin feels resilient, supple and radiant.’

Review: Benefit B.Right It’s Potent! Eye Cream

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect eye cream for what seems like an eternity. I honestly don’t know why I’ve been having so much trouble, it’s not as if I’m making undue demands on eye cream. I mean I just want something that will take  care of my dark circles as well as keep the eye area hydrated. Not too much to ask for, is it?


With this mission in mind my interests where peaked when I first heard about Benefit’s It’s Potent! Eye Cream back in February. The fact that is was described as a ‘brightening eye cream to fade dark circles’, could only be a good thing as far as I was concerned.

Liz Earle Skin Consultation

Last Friday I attended the Liz Earle Event that was taking place in Wilde and Green, Milltown, Dublin. Wilde and Green is a gourmet supermarket/coffee shop with the Liz Earle laid out in it’s own little corner of the store.
 
I was booked in for 2pm but was seen sooner as I arrived early, which was lovely as it meant I wasn’t waiting around for ages. There was a choice between a skin consultation or a hand and arm massage. In chose the skin consultation as I’ve been intrigued by the Liz Earle range for a while now and was keen to see what they’d recommend.

WHAT SANCTUARY HAVE TO SAY:

Review: Soap and Glory The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser

What Soap & Glory have to say:
‘3 in 1 Concentrated Deep Purifying Formula with Panthenol, sweet almond, orange and lavender oils.’
Clean over backwards (Instructions):
‘Squeeze out a generous splodge of The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser, divide it between the pads of your fingers and then massage onto your face and neck for at least 60 seconds (concentrate most on your nose, chin and other clog-prone spots.) Leave on for another minute (if you’re too ‘type A’ to wait fill the time by flossing,) then press it all off with a warm, wet muslin cloth.

Review: LUSH Catastrophe Cosmetic Facemask

As has already been established I’m a massive Lush fan and am always on the hunt for a bargain, so the Lush policy of receiving a free face mask of your choice when you return five empty and clean black pots is right up my street.

On a recent shopping trip I popped into the Henry St. store to pick up my freebie and here’s the one I chose:

Review: Neutrogena Multi-Defence

Back in February I got the chance to test the full range of Neutrogena Mult-Defence skincare products, thanks to the lovely people at both Neutrogena and Beaut.ie.

Here’s what was in the lovely package that arrived at the beginning of March.
 
We have the Gentle Purifying Scrub, the Gentle Purifying Wipes,  the Daily Moisturiser and the Night Moisturiser.
