I can’t say that I would recommend this product to a friend. Yes, I enjoyed the application and it is incredibly soothing. However, it doesn’t do anything that a good old-fashioned after sun product doesn’t do – for a lot less cost. I’m also put off by some of the hazardous ingredients featured. I personally believe there are lower budget products out there with safe ingredients that can achieve the same results.
I would recommend this product to any friend who was blessed with a decent budget for their skin care. It is however definitely on the more expensive spectrum compared to other masks I’ve seen. I’m personally hoping to find a cheaper alternative with similar results. The delivery charge alone is enough to put anyone off!
Overall, the Nuxe sunblock is a solid buy that I would recommend to anyone who loves the Nuxe perfume and doesn’t mind a thick and oily feeling on his or her skin. Because of this texture and finish, I think it is better suited to lying by the pool or beach rather than traversing through the sweaty city. London is clammy in the summer at the best of times, and I admit that this exacerbated the problem.
I cannot endorse the Arbonne FC5 Exfoliating New Cell Scrub with a wholehearted recommendation. While I cannot be sure, I think it led to an eczema like rash around my mouth. Dodgy sales practices, accusations of ‘greenwashing,’ a texture that is far too harsh and a badly damaged box – I am not happy with this brand. I will be using this as a body scrub rather than applying it to my facial skin again.
As a full GlamGlow convert I really look forward to trying the two free samples I was sent. I can see myself buying their products going forward, and always having one on hand. I also highly recommend using one of the masks before a special holiday or big night out.
As with most Benefit products I have used, I really like Boi-ing Concealer, but I am not fully sold. It goes on easily, stays put for a medium amount of time and is made of high quality ingredients.
After lots of use, I can confirm that this concealer is really excellent. However, it frustrates me endlessly that Mac have designed the packaging. If this concealer had a doe foot applicator that let you distribute a small amount of product it would be absolutely perfect.
I have less blemishes, my skin feels smoother and I definitely feel like my skin is a lot more hydrated. Not only that, but I’m addicted to the gorgeous smell and I love how cooling the moisturiser is on the skin.
