Pristine Dead Sea Mud Mask | Review

Pristine Dead Sea Mud face Mask Review amazon

You might have seen from a few of my other posts that I sure do love a good face mask. They just seem to always leave me feeling refreshed and are a great relaxation product to use at the end of a hectic week to pamper the skin a little. I have previously tried a mud mask before and even did a review on it, but I couldn't wait to try a different brand as I was so pleased with the results last time.

Mud masks are one of those products that are used to really clean the skin and lift impurities and clogged up pores. Recently I have really felt the need to incorporate such a mask as for some reason I kept breaking out and my skin was looking quite dull (my diet hasn't been very healthy recently, so my skin issues are probably down to that unfortunately). 

There are so many benefits of using a mud mask, but this Pristine Dead Sea Mud Mask in particular claims to:

  • Purify the pores as a natural skin cleanser
  • Promote clearer skin and reduce the frequency of blemishes
  • Remove excess oil to combat shine
  • Minimize enlarged pores 
  • Diminish the appearance of wrinkles
  • Address blackheads 
  • Ease inflammation 
  • Reduce the prominence of scars 
  • Protect skin from free radical damage with antioxidant vitamin E 
  • Restore vitality and radiance to the complexion
Not only is natural and organic, but also vegan and cruelty free. I find that incorporating natural products into your skincare routine makes such a difference to the overall result. With vegan products not readily available as I think that they should be (especially in the drugstore, which kind of infuriates me), Pristine have done well in upholding their ethics when creating this product.

I have used this product multiple times now, although I try not to use it more than once a week as that is all that is needed for the product to work. I slathered the mask on to my face, using a flat foundation brush to create an even finish. The texture of this surprised me as it wasn't as heavy as the previous Dead Sea Mud Mask I used. It was actually pretty light on the skin and easy to work with it. After I let it dry for just under 15 minutes, I found that the product didn't harden up like other masks often do. Instead it remained in the original texture, which I was really pleased with as it meant there was no uncomfortableness or tingling on my face. 

After washing the mask off, my face felt instantly clean. There was no drastic difference that would wow people instantly, but I did find a difference in the texture of my skin. Not only did it smoothen my skin but I felt like it really gave my face a deep clean, leaving a 'glowing within look'. After every use, I can see a slight improvement in the overall appearance, that it just keeps me going back for more! If you're looking for similar results, then I would recommend checking this product out. You can buy it on Amazon for £14.97, which is a great price considering the tube is huge and is sure to last a while. You can buy the product here

Scrub Love Coffee Body Scrub in Mint Temptation

Scrub Love Coffee Body Scrub in Mint Temptation natural organic skincare

I am a huge fan of body scrubs and have recently seen the appearance of coffee scrubs propping up on various beauty blogs which scream abut the benefits that leaves your skin looking amazing. Not only is a scrub a great exfoliant but the coffee is a natural ingredient that improves the look and feel of your skin. What's not to like?!

Scrub Love is a UK brand that is 100% natural. Yes, 100%! Not only are their products organic, but they are also fairtrade and ethically sourced which gives you peace of mind that your purchase is coming from a good place. And boy is it worth it. 

First of all, this scrub smells AMAZING. I cannot get over the smell, it just reminds me of strong mint chocolate. I'm not the biggest fan of mint scents but I am actually obsessed with this one. I reckon even if you don't like mint scents you will like this (if not, then there are also other scents you can choose from on the Scrub Love website). 

I have the scrub in 'Mint Temptation' which has organic Robusta coffee, tea tree oil, organ oil, peppermint oil and dead sea salt. Whilst the coffee part buffs away dead skin cells, all the different oils help to smooth out, heal and cleanse the skin to leave it looking and feeling nourished.

After using this scrub a few times, I have quickly become obsessed. It feels so good to buff into my skin without being at all harsh or drying. Its actually quite a therapeutic process, especially with the added bonus of the peppermint aroma. All I do is apply it and then leave it evenly onto my skin and leave for around five minutes. Even when I don't have time, I wash it off after a couple of minutes and I can still feel a difference in the texture of my skin. I am totally happy with the result as it gives a lovely glow and brightens up the dull complexion on my arms and legs and wherever else i tend to use it. 

If you want to hold on tight to summer for a little bit longer, than this is the product for you! Or if like me you can't wait for winter when you tend let go of your skincare routine (I for one am guilt of this) this product is great to give your skin a much-needed boost. You can even use the scrub on your face as the natural ingredients are perfectly suitable even for sensitive areas. Other variations include 'Original Lovin' and 'Coconut Affair' which are the perfect body scrubs brightening and hydrating skin. You can find out more and purchase your own product on the Scrub Love website here

6 Reasons why you need a Tangle Teezer in your life

6 Reasons advice Tangle Teezer hair haircare brush comb Britain

I remember when Tangle Teezers first launched in the UK, they were the big thing that everyone needed to get their hands on. I simply never understood what the big fuss was about, and at the time spending £10.99 seemed a bit ridiculous for a hairbrush. Fast forward to last month, where I finally gave in and splurged on this infamous hairbrush.  I decided to purchase the compact version used for travelling just to keep in my handbag as noticed my hair gets quite frizzy throughout the day. Not many brands do travel hairbrushes so I thought I may as well get the infamous Tangle Teezer to see what the big deal was. Seeing as my hair is thick and wavy, and most of the time fry, I wasn't sure this would quite do the job but boy was I wrong. Here are 10 great things I have since discovered about my new obsession:

1. Its so compact... which makes it great even for my smaller handbags as it takes up hardly any space. 

2. The design is lovely... and there are so many other options to choose from if this particular one isn't your style

3. It actually detangles my untameable hair...  and helps get rid of any knots that magically appear throughout the day.

4. It keeps frizz at bay... for most of the day anyway.

5. Its made in Britain... not a big deal to some but I think its great that we're supporting something great that originated over here in the UK. 

6. Theres loads of different styles you can choose from to suit your needs.... the Original, Styler and Aqua versions are just a few of my favourites.
