Dermalogica – PreCleanse Balm with Cleansing Mitt – PR

IMG_4534

The best balm cleanser I have ever used – my makeup melted away!

I was very lucky to receive these products from Dermalogica for me to review for my followers – Please note I received this product complimentary!

This is a deep cleansing precleanser which turns from balm-to-oil which quickly, and superbly removes impurities and makeup – including my waterproof mascara! With this product you also get a silicon cleansing mitt which uses the same exfoliating style as my Foreo cleansing brush without the sonic vibrations.

The balm is water activated and melts to a smooth oil which deconstructs layers of sebum, environmental pollutants and residual product buildup on skin, whist the natural Biolipid complex locks in hydration and reinforces the skin barrier while apricot kernel oil helps nourish the skin!

It really did melt away all of my makeup making my pre-bed routine quicker as I didn’t have to take ages removing my makeup before I could take care of my skin. I found that the oil was easy to remove with the mitt and a bit of warm water. It also didn’t leave my skin dry but instead nourished. I was really impressed when my makeup just melted away without having to use micellar water to remove it first.

Bottom Line: This balm will dissolve and remove even waterproof makeup in a quicky!

Price: £44.00 at Dermalogica

Byron Bay Skincare – Clear Skin System

This is a great skin clearer that is good for your skin and the environment!

I stumbled upon Byron Bay Skincare on Instagram and decided to give their Clear Skin System a go!

This system consists of a gel cleanser, hydrating lotion and blemish gel to target and treat any skin blemishes. All of these items are vegan and cruelty free – and for every bottle you buy they plant a tree! So its not only kind to your skin – its kind to the environment and animals!

My first impressions of this set was how fast it was delivered and how lovely the packaging is! Secondly, how incredible the scents are – the hydrating lotion consists of locally source Davidson plums so it has a fruity scent, whereas the blemish gel is made from tea tree so you get a lovely waft of it when applying.

The gel cleanser lathers beautifully and you can feel how clean your skin is – without the drying feeling I’ve had from other cleansers. A lot goes a long way with the Hydrating lotion – half a pump is enough to cover my face and neck – I can’t get over the smell, its so lovely and reminds me of jam! The blemish gel is a bit sticky to apply – but dries insanely fast and doesn’t leave a weird texture on my skin after its applied.

You can use the blemish gel under makeup – it didn’t affect how my primer or foundation went on – so I was able to combat my spots whilst wearing makeup.

This system has cleared my skin up considerably and has allowed me to use less makeup to cover my blemishes!

Bottom Line: My new favourite skin care routine!

Price: £51.99 from Byron Bay Skincare.
