Hi everybody, today I have some beauty reviews of items I have been loving this summer. This is post is a little different from my make up/nail posts so I hope you enjoy it.
The items I will be sharing with you were sent to me for review and I fell in love with them, so much that I have purchased some of these items since and will be using regularly.
Ok so I am sure you have seen many teeth whitening kits on the market, and don’t worry I won’t be showing you lots of ugly tooth pictures (my teeth are not the prettiest). But I will be sharing my experience of using the product.
Ok so I have tried a few different teeth whitening products and these are similar to others I have tried, however what I really liked was that they came with filled trays so you didn’t have to mess about with the gel. They did work at whitening my teeth and also had a pleasant minty taste, but I am not sure how good it is to use teeth whitening products for long periods of time. These would be great if you are trying to get a few shades whiter for an event. The pack of 10 trays can be purchased from Boots for £19.99.
Next up is something which I was very dubious about working, Remescar Silicone stretch mark cream. Now I decided not to take pictures of my stretch marks as I was a little embarrassed and didn’t want to share that.
The cream retails for £24.99 and so is not cheap but also not expensive. As compared to rivals such as Bio oil it is comparable in price. Ok so I’m sure all you want to know is did it work??? And I can say yes it did. I had a few new stretch marks coming up on my thighs and I found that instead of turning purple and then silver they started to fade to silver a lot quicker than I have experienced in the past. It definitely reduced the appearance of my stretch marks on my tummy and my thighs and breasts. I was impressed and will be buying this again as I have just finished my tube. Remescar can be purchased from Boots.
Ok so last but not least is what I would call a wonder mask for the skin. The Casmara masks, only once available in high end salons as part of facial treatments are now available to the normal consumer. And I am extremely pleased about that.
So this item is something I have tried before in a salon, and it cost a bomb… I believe the facial was about £80 quid (I had a voucher I would never pay that for a facial otherwise). They said they were going to use a Casmara mask and I was amazed with the effects. So when I got the chance to try one of their in home treatments I was thrilled.
I have a few pics of the mask and I’m not sure if the before and after really show much of a difference, but I can tell you I certainly felt the difference as did my mum who I used the excess on.
This mask is one you mix yourself and the only criticism I would have is that you should be able to mix half or less if you only want to treat certain areas, such as the nose or if you just have a small face like I do. I found the pack contained enough for 2 small faces. The instructions are to apply over the eyes as well as the lips, but as I was taking pictures of myself that was not going to be possible :).
Oh don’t I look so happy lol. Anyway I am quite lucky to generally have had good skin most of my life, but this mask makes it all better. It is a little tricky to apply but it actually sets very quickly on the face.
I really felt it brightened the skin, cleared any blocked pores and generally just made my face feel like I had just had an £80 facial. Now they have quite a few masks in their range and guess what I have bought them all after trying this amazing product. I cannot recommend this enough, obviously we all have different skin types but this was a truly amazing product which left my face feeling as smooth as a baby’s bottom and with no irritation or dryness, now that for me is amazing. Oh and you get a souvenir which my daughters loved playing with after, and that is the mask after it has been pulled off lol.
The Casmara beauty plan mask was available for £9.99 from boots but now seems to be sold out and I am not surprised. If you search online you can find other retailers who also sell it.
Well I hope you enjoyed this post, I will be back soon with all the new autumn winter polish and make up collections.
Thanks for reading xxx
