Anar Naturals Naturelle Facial Cleanser Cream

There is nothing better than the fresh clean feeling after you have just cleansed your face.

There is also nothing better than your face feeling moisturised and not tight after use.

 

I have loads of cleansers, facial washes, hot cloth cleansers and various other products that are designed to cleanse your face.

 

A lovely natural cream cleanser I have come across is by Anar Naturals. 

 

So here is more about the product itself.

 

Best Facial Cleanser with Acne Wash

Have sensitive skin? Anar Naturals Facial Cleanser Cream is the best facial cleanser with Acne Wash. It receives extremely high marks from those who have tried it. Free of fragrances, dyes, soaps, and alcohol, this Acne wash will neither dry nor irritate your skin, leaving it feeling smooth, never tight and stretched. It’s a gentle way to wake up the skin, polishing away impurities, oil and makeup for a clean, comfortable feel, with no pore-clogging residue. Free from Parabens, SLS and Phthalates.

Anar Naturals Facial Cleanser Cream cleans all complexion types – even sensitive and oily skin – while refreshing and reviving the face. Can either be used as a skin freshener to brighten up your skin during the day or at the end of the day? With organic Rose Petal Extract, it leaves a fresh, subtle scent which is suitable for and loved by men and women of all generations..

Your skin is exposed to innumerable external factors such as pollution and dirt, which can affect your skin deeper than you understand, blocking your skin pores. Early signs of aging, spots and marks on the skin and a general lack in brightness in your skin are a result of all these external factors. Therefore, facial cleansing is of highest essence and should never be ignored by anyone wishing to have a flawless radiant complexion and used to prevent skin imperfections. 

 

 

This cleanser has such beautiful packaging, the box is very easy to open and inside contains a green and silver plastic ball that twists open with ease.

 

The ball is easy to open, easy to hold and has a flat part to the bottom so it does not roll around, something I can imagine would get very annoying.

 

Once it has opened, there is a plastic lid to prevent leakage. This is very important as I hate the product ending up all over the lid and I believe it keeps the contents fresher.

The lid has a small tab that makes it very easy to pull off.

 

 

Once opened, you can instantly smell a luxuriously creamy scent, it reminds me so much of plain facial creams. Apart from a faint scent of natural rose, there is no other scent detectable, just 100% creaminess.

 

 

 

Scooping enough product out of the jar is very easy and it has a medium-thick consistency which makes it very easy to apply to your face, massaging the cream in to make sure you get a nice deep down clean.

 

 

 

It feels really silky when massaging the product between my fingers, this means when applying you will have no pull or drag on your skin, something that can actually irritate your delicate face.

 

On the box, it doesn't have great instructions, it just basically says massage into the skin.

 

I had to look online for the best use.

 

What you need to do, is rinse your face with clean water then apply this cleanser, massaging into the face.

Once finished massaging, apply a small amount of water to fingers and work into the face and the cream, then wipe away with a cotton wool pad.

 

So, this is what I did.

 

I massaged into wet skin, applying a little water afterwards then used a dry cotton wool pad to get the product off.

Now I wasn't sure if you could leave any product behind, so I used a wet cotton wool pad too, to get rid of the excess product from my face.

 

After my face had been pat dry, my skin felt really soft and smooth. I could get away without moisturising as it was so hydrated just after using the cleanser.

 

I used it on a bare face and with make up.

 

With a bare face, I felt like I had a really good cleanse on the surface, but it did not feel like a good deep down clean.

 

With make up, it removed foundation and blusher really well, however eye make up was harder.

I ended up having to use a separate eye make up remover to get rid of the waterproof mascara and eyeliner that I had used.

 

I prefer this cream on bare skin, not with make up.

It isn't as effective with make up on.

 

After a week of use, my skin was so much softer, dry skin was eliminated and I didn't have to wear my usual moisture surge moisturisers, I could just use my every day one as my skin was so soft.

 

I had a break out on day 3 of a couple of spots on my face and I really do think this moisturiser helped calm them down and stop them being so red and sore.

 

If you have problem with spots, this could be a good product to use when they are red and sore as it does calm them down really well.

 

So all in all, I really did enjoy using this product and I really do love the look of the jar.

INSKIN Precious Anti-Ageing Facial Oil

I was absolutely thrilled to have been chosen for the trial of the Precious Anti-Ageing Facial Oil by INSKIN. This is a completely new brand to me and I am an ardent fan of facial oils, both for their indulgent nature and their consistent and remarkable results on my complexion.

What was my first impression?

Whilst reading through the wonderful, plentiful and very potent ingredients I was enthralled by the fact that INSKIN like to give credit to each and every one of their ingredients, such as their statement:

“DID YOU KNOW? – Rose oil was probably the first essential oil ever to be distilled in Persia over 10,000 years ago and frankincense oil is extracted from the bark of the frankincense tree, which, when damaged, the tree exudes ‘tears’ of resin”

Immediately I could see that much research has gone into this product and I am always fascinated by the history of essential oils and their uses, which have been used since the dawn of time.

 How easy was it to dispense the oil?

I received a small sample of the facial oil and although I cannot comment on the packaging of this sample, the pictures of the full size product speak for themselves. The oil is housed in a glass bottle and has a rubber squeeze dropper to dispense the oil accurately. It was not easy to dispense the product accurately from the sample size however this is not relative to the full size product. I also loved the little toffee that was included with my sample. Small touches like this are so appealing for a brand.

The oil has a beautiful golden colour and is of a medium to thick consistency. To me this is a sign of a true pure and high quality oil. Watery oils are often not completely pure as they have been designed more to suit application ease than giving necessary results.

IMG 6667

What is it formulated with? 

The ingredients of this oil are plentiful and potent. It contains rose essential oil to sooth and firm, frankincense essential oil for cell regeneration, balancing geranium essential oil, skin lightening and anti-oxidant boosting lemon essential oil, rosehip oil which is high in vitamin C, jojoba oil high in vitamins, macadamia oil which easily penetrates the skin and vitamin A, an essential food for the skin. I was bowled over by the quality of the ingredients and expected high results from this product.

How did I use this product?

As instructed, after cleansing and toning I dispense 5 drops of the oil and smooth between the palms before applying to my face. Due to the thick consistency of the oil, I recommend applying this product to damp skin. Not only does this help to disperse the small amount of oil evenly over the entire face, neck and décolleté, it also looks in the moisture. If used in this manner, these 5 tiny drops should be more than sufficient for one application.

A divine scent of flowers and lemon

The oil has a stunning and heady fragrance of florals and lemon. I can predominantly detect the geranium and the whole fragrance makes application a pure pleasure both to the skin and senses. The fragrance soon dissipates and although you can detect a slight residue on the skin, there is no stickiness or tackiness from the product. After this stage I layer on my night or day cream over the top. Many people would fear that this layering of product would be too much for the face, but believe me; this procedure does not overwhelm the skin at all.

IMG 6666

What did it do to my skin?

The results of the product are rapid and very apparent. After 2 days my skin was smoother and visibly even. I assume the skin lightening lemon oil may be responsible for this. The hydration is phenomenal and gives my face a youthful plumpness that is always welcome in the older generation! Fine lines and wrinkles look greatly reduced and I noted that my open pores were greatly diminished! As this was only a small sample, used morning and evening I am convinced that the results would only continue to improve.

Would I recommend this product?

For older skins, I can see nothing but benefit from the oil and ladies (or gentlemen) that have always feared using oils on their skin should most certainly take the plunge. The product is pure in every way and you can be safe in the knowledge that you are not applying harsh chemicals to your face. The results are fast and impressive and I would not hesitate to recommend this to others.

  

The skin is officially the largest organ of the body and it should be protected and treated with respect. After all, if you feel good on the inside that you should look and feel healthy on the outside. The INSKIN Precious Anti-Ageing Facial Oil is a force to be reckoned with alongside some its better known counterparts. If you respect how you treat your body then INSKIN can help you to “love the SKIN you’re IN”. Fantastic product!!

E:30/06/14, Kissglove | Win 1 of 2 x Moroccan Deep Exfoliating Gloves | RRP £14.95 each

We all exfoliate our face but not our body. Kissglove™ are bringing a traditional cleansing ritual into modern day bathrooms with their freshly launched Authentic Moroccan Exfoliating Glove for seriously smooth skin and a new habit of stroking yourself. 

To celebrate the launch of their hero product, Kissglove™ are offering 2 of our members the chance to test and review the Moroccan Deep Exfoliating Glove (RRP £14.95 each). Apply before 30 June 2014.

More about Kissglove!

The founder of Kissglove™, of Moroccan origin, grew up understanding the importance, and benefits, of exfoliating by observing and inheriting her mother’s weekly bathing ritual. There was never a secret to her mother’s bright, beautiful and youthful skin.

One of the most important Moroccan traditions that her mother passed down to her, was indulging in a weekly hammam (steam) bath.  A 'kiss' (Moroccan word for exfoliating glove), is used to rejuvenate the skin by visibly removing dead skin cells.

Having exhausted every avenue searching the UK for an exfoliating glove that compared to a Moroccan 'kiss', she was compelled to create the Kissglove™ - an authentic exfoliating glove, akin to those used for centuries by men and women in Morocco to rejuvenate and revitalise the skin. 

Kissglove™ understand that glowing skin is a fundamental part of looking fabulous. There is no secret to achieving this. With the Kissglove™, anyone can experience the true benefits of deep exfoliation.

Revolutionise the way you exfoliate!

Kissglove™ is bringing a century-old cleansing ritual into modern day bathrooms with its authentic Moroccan exfoliating glove. Enjoy a simple, non-invasive, skin rejuvenating, spa treatment in the privacy of your own bathroom. 

Kissglove™ cleanses the skin to a deeper level than any traditional, exfoliating, body scrub and at a fraction of the cost of a spa treatment.

No need for expensive products or methods, just add water and kiss your skin with the glove to enjoy its immediate visible effects on your skin:

  • Removes dead skin cells from the surface of the skin
  • Removes tan build up and smoothes the skin in preparation for fresh applications
  • Removes & prevents ingrown hairs
  • Eradicates keratosis pilaris (skin bumps)
  • Improves uneven, dull & dry skin texture
  • Stimulates collagen giving you younger, fresher, brighter skin
  • Improves circulation reducing the appearance of cellulite
  • Feel energised as you massage away fatigue and vigorously rub your skin

Peppy Galore Star Face Moisturiser For Normal Skin

Not tested on animals, natural ingredients, carbon neutral, SLS and Paraben free. Suitable for dry, mature and normal skin types. A natural sun block with vitamins and antioxidants. Long lasting, deeply moisturising. Attractive packaging.

This moisturiser is a delightful new brand that I was so excited to trial. From the word go I was intrigued by the brand as their ethic seems perfect in every way. The brand claims to use only natural ingredients in their products with the bonus of non animal testing with the products being SLS and Paraben free. These are all key factors for me when choosing a new skincare brand.

A vibrant and practical packaging

The name Peppy Galore immediately conjured up a young, fresh and modern brand and their packaging certainly reflects this style. The bottle is a delightful, non-fussy white plastic bottle with a wide nozzle, pump action lid.

I always prefer a pump bottle as this generally makes the product easy to dispense without contaminating your product with fingers. The pump has a lovely wide nozzle. The bottle is adorned with yellow hearts and a simple, easy to understand no nonsense label.

The whole packaging lends itself to a modern, young brand. I refused to let this deter me as I have mature skin; after all, it is the product inside that is most important. This said, I am a great believer in attractive practical packaging as this is the ‘shop window’ of a brand. Peppy Galore has certainly achieved this but it ‘may’ deter older clients from trying the brand in the first place (just a small observation / opinion).

A Top-notch Dispenser

The dispense nozzle of the bottle is perfect for me. It has a nice smooth action and dispenses the perfect amount of product for both my face and décolleté area.

I noted after two weeks of use that the nozzle does not clog in any way with dried product, as many others can do. The pump is perfect for preventing over dispense and wastage of the product.

A rich, scented and absorptive cream

Once dispensed the moisturiser has a lovely, indulgent thick texture which is white in colour and has a silky balm like texture. Spread and warmed between the fingers the cream glides beautifully on to my skin without effort.

Admittedly at first I was a little concerned about the thickness of texture but this was unfounded as the cream is immediately absorbed by my skin. When applying it is pleasure to feel the wonderful glide that this balm like texture gives. Even though the product is thick there is no residue or stickiness on the skin at all.

The cream has a beautiful and subtle fragrance that is predominantly a rose and geranium scent with a little kiss of something citrus, which I am guessing is Citronellal in the product? It is overall a bright fresh fragrance which is very pleasant and uplifting.

A Day & Night Moisturiser for Mature Skin

I have been using this product both morning and evening and the deep moisturisation does not dissipate in between applications. My skin feels hydrated, plumped and fresh after each use. I have not seen any significant benefits for fine lines; however, this is not a claim of the product in the first place.

Hydration is key to my complexion and this cream delivers excellent results in this field. I am also prone to break outs and hormonal skin and the Star Moisturiser has not upset the ‘status quo’ of my skin at all. After each use my skin feels plumped, soft and above all ‘comfortable’.

My Findings and Recommendation

For those who are looking for a no fuss, deeply moisturising cream, suitable for day and night applications, you will not go far wrong with this product.

It is gentle enough for all skin types (in my opinion), easy to use and very long lasting because of its concentrated ingredients.

It offers excellent moisturisation, with added benefits of containing olive, avocado and apricot kernel oils, which are natural sun blocks (although you should always use a quality sun block in addition) and packed with vitamins and antioxidants.

Quite simply a versatile and effective moisturiser all in one. In short, in my opinion, ‘what’s not to like’. An excellent new brand well worth a try.

A very high quality moisturiser with natural sun block abilities, 100% natural ingredients. Offer deep moisturisation for a natural, fresh complexion. Highly recommended by me for results that you can both see and feel!

E:30/11/13, Spotner | Win 1 of 14 Anti Agespot Appli-Pen Hands & Body

This month we have teamed up with Spotner to introduce its range of revolutionary treatments for age spots. 

14 of our members will be offered the chance to test and review a full-sized tube of the Anti-Age Spot Appli-Pen™ Hands & Body (2ml, RRP £19.99 each).

While its innovative soft-tip pen design promises an easy, precise and quick application, its unique balance of botanical extracts treat the pigmentations harmlessly.

What are Age Spots?

The term 'age spots', also known as 'sun spots' or 'solar lentigo', refers to blemishes on the skin that, over time, appear on your face, hands and body.

These hyperpigmentation have nothing to do with how old you are. They are very common in adults over 40, not only because they have been exposed to the sun for a longer period of time, but also because their skin is less able to recover from sun exposure. 

   

How can Age Spots be treated? 

Although they are usually harmless, age spots can be considered unsightly and therefore bothersome.

There are various, fairly 'aggressive' ways of preventing them from enlarging, or multiplying, or even removing them, such as chemical peels, laser treatment and harsh prescription-strength retinoids.

Spotner Hands & Body has revolutionised the treatment of age spots

It contains a unique combination of ingredients that safely help to reduce the pigmentation. The formation of new age spots will be prevented by the use of SPF 50 UV (A+B)-Filters in combination with different lightening substances.

Age spots are removed by the action of alpha-hydroxy acids that help to increase the renewal rate of the skin: removing the age spots, and giving a smoother, younger appearance. Alpha-hydroxy acids have been used for centuries for a younger appearance of the skin. Studies have shown that alpha-hydroxy acids are able to reverse the effects of photo aged skin¹.

5 Days with Vaseline Men Body Lotion Fast Absorbing

Usually I don’t log my trials this closely but I thought that it might be (semi!) interesting to follow a trial over a few days and to record the different ways that I get to try out these products. This one was a week at home rather than a working week as that really would be dull (commute, work, commute) so most of it is spent in the garden, at the gym, cleaning and cooking.

Day 1

Okay from the video you can see that Vaseline Men Body Lotion is very (very) liquid; it’s almost a milk and so it’s very easy to over use. This is a pity as you don’t need that much as it covers easily and absorbs very quickly.

For my first test I used it after my shower following a long back breaking day digging stones out of the garden (seriously where do they all come from!). You can see in the pictures and the video that I’ve poured the samples (well some of them anyway) into a small pot. I do this for some very practical reasons (taking it to the gym and on holiday, being careful about how much I use, not cluttering the bathroom up with bottles) and one very daft reason: I can never open sachets without scissors! If it was me, a dessert island and a packet of nuts (but no scissors) I’m not sure I’d survive.

The one you can see is from Muji and I use these because I found that the lids don’t break and they’re pretty secure whilst not being too expensive (£1.75 for a 30g Cream Pot). As you can see from the video the lotion isn’t easy to handle from my pot because it’s very light but that’s my fault rather than the products.

The scent is very recognisable as Vaseline but there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s light and not sweet or feminine which makes it ideal for the gym as well as home. In use a finger end of lotion which is enough for an arm. You do feel it on the skin even though it does absorb quickly and for me it left a slightly cold feeling not unpleasant but noticeable. The scent lingers after use (again not unpleasant but noticeable) and even using tiny amounts I felt that my skin was slight damp even a few minutes after use.

Straight from the shower it works well and it certainly helped me feel better after a long day digging up rocks!

Day 2

Today I walked to the gym to test Vaseline Men Body Lotion after a workout session and in the cramped conditions of the changing room. It’s not uncommon for men to use moisturiser at the gym (whether they’d admit to it is another issue) but certainly Vaseline packaging makes it more male friendly and therefore more likely to be added to the kit bag.

I had the same issue as yesterday in that the lotion is so light that it can be hard not to overuse it. This is worse at the gym where you don’t have the time or space to do things in a more measured way. Despite a little spillage (a disadvantage of the lotion being decanted into the pot) it was again easy to apply and absorbed pretty well even after a couple of hours in the gym and then the steam room. It certainly felt good on my skin and helped settle down my skin for the walk home.

Day 3

Back to the garden and a long walk to do some shopping (actually I didn’t buy anything which is always a good result for me). I’ve been wondering how the lotion would handle the amount of time I spend outside in the sun. Between cycling, walking and gardening I probably get too much direct sun on my arms and neck so I usually use something with SPF and do quite a lot of moisturising. After three days of using Vaseline Men Body Lotion I must admit my skin is holding up pretty well. When I test it the skin is actually well moisturised and feels smooth but for some reason my mind keeps telling me that my skin looks dry. I think this is just me getting used to the differences between my usual moisturiser and this one.

Day 4

The weekend so it’s everyday shopping, cooking and cleaning – well there was a bit of gardening first thing! After four days I’m getting used to the lightness of the lotion (far fewer spills) and overall I rather like how it feels on my skin. I still have a strange dislocation between how the skin feels to touch and how it feels in my mind but the reality is that it absorbs and works well.

Day 5

Nothing too strenuous today, shopping, cooking and a few trips to the tip (the result of gardening always seems to be more trips to the tip!). So how have the five days of using Vaseline Men Body Lotion gone and how does my skin feel? Well I can’t say that I can see any difference but given the hard pressure I put my skin under (too many hours in the sun, sweating at the gym and grimy from digging in the garden) I must admit that it feels better than when I use my usual moisturiser. There is still a slight nagging feel of coolness in the skin, not a bad thing but a little too noticeable. I’d probably get used to it after a while but it does seem to sit a little too much at the forefront of my mind.

Overall

I rather enjoyed using this lotion and it definitely made a change to my normal one which is much thicker and doesn’t absorb as well. I haven’t tried the retail bottled version so I don’t know what it would be like to use that but it’s too liquid to use in a gym setting easily in my small tub. I think it would be a great alternative and it would interesting to try the other products in the range.
