Indeed Facial Powdered Exfoliator Review

As an exfoliation obsessive (sad I know) I have really been enjoying all the new generation powdered exfoliator that have appeared recently from brands like Givenchy, Bliss Spa and Diptyque. So I was very pleased to welcome this one from innovative skincare brand, Indeed. Here's the low-down on Indeed Facial Powdered Exfoliator.

Indeed Facial Powdered Exfoliator Review

So this is a water-activated product that will deliver both enzymatic exfoliation and also mechanical exfoliation. This is my dream team. Enzymes to melt the dead skin cells and scrubby bits to slew them away. Well that's how I view it anyway!

NYX Xtreme Lip Cream Review

NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in 03 is a beautiful red liquid lipstick that glides on effortlessly and grips really well to the lips. It comes in a cute little tube and has a lovely firm applicator that is great for lining and defining:

I am sorry for the poor photo but this was taken just after I used it right by my bed and that is where the bottle is staying!! 

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask Review

Get ready for another bit of Omorovicza love because this mask is pretty special. If ever I feel like my skin needs a good kick up the bottom, I turn to this creme de la creme of clay cleansing. This the Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask.

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask Review

I have been using this mask for a while now, perhaps 4 months, and I have waited until now to review because although I did like it at first, I was slightly underwhelmed. Although it made my skin feel very clean, I didn't think it was as 'all singing and all dancing' as it could have been, especially considering the hefty price tag. I rarely feature things unless I am really recommending them so I decided to hang fire or not feature it at all. Because it's £57 (yikes!) I continued to use it once a week, and each time I have used it, I have liked it more and more. It has now become an integral part of my skincare regime. So now is the time to tell you about it!

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask Review

Obviously you can get clay masks much cheaper, but this one does a lot more than just remove impurities as it deeply infuses this skin with precious minerals, proteins and vitamins from Omorivicza's thermal mud and healing waters. It draws out dirt and impurities but it never leaves my skin feeling dry or taut like many clay masks I have used. It just feels beyond clean, smooth, plump, and perfectly nourished and bright. Love it! Occasionally a tiny spot can appear the next day, but it goes really quickly and I think this is part and parcel of deep purification.

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask Review

Although the instructions recommend a generous application - I smooth on a small amount that practically disappears into my skin over the course of 10-20 minutes. It feels tingly at first and then goes rather cold - I do love to feel a product doing its stuff!  I wipe the excess away with a warm, wet flannel and it comes away really easily which I love. I do this before bed and follow with toner then serums/oils and moisturisers. I love my skin the next day (teeny pimple aside). The more regularly I use this, the less likely pimple apperance becomes.

Now as I said, it is really expensive, but the way that I use it (extremely sparingly) means the cost per use is less, much like how I use the Omorovicza Copper Peel which is another all time favourite product.

You can buy Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask for £57 at Cult Beauty or Space NK.

Bourjois So Laque Glossy Succes Azure & Ciel Mon Vernis

It was quite funny because I was going to do the pale blue - Ciel Mon Vernis - as the main colour and then the bright - Succes Azure - as the accent but, when I saw the bright shade, I knew that one finger wouldn't be enough. So I switched!
