Primark Skin Care Range | Review

This blog post has been a long time coming, but finally I am getting around to doing my full review on Primark’s skin care range. I will admit, I had my doubts about doing this review but I realized that I started this blog to share my thoughts and therefore I should be honest, so that’s what I’m going to do.

Before we begin, don’t forget that I currently have a giveaway over on my Instagram so be sure to go and enter for a chance to win!

My first ever blog post was a first impressions on this range and can be read here if anyone is interested. Some backstory on my skin; it is extremely sensitive and I wasn’t sure if I even wanted to put the products on my skin, but most seemed to go well. Opinions have changed since I wrote that and started to use those products more, and without any further rambling, we’ll begin!

PS Love To Glow

First up is the PS Love To Glow face mask. When I first took this out of the box, I was apprehensive,  the colour really made me feel uneasy but eventually, I pushed past and used the product. It felt surprisingly nice, but as I began to use it more I realized that my skin was drying out, and around my nose started to crack. As you can imagine, it was terrifying and after a matter of eliminating every product used on my skin, it came down to this one and I stopped using it right away.

Now, up until my skin started to crack, I actually quite liked this. It felt really nice on the skin and it had a lovely, subtle scent but I would recommend to anyone with sensitive skin to steer clear of this, as it did affect me in such a bad way. It may have only been my skin it reacted bad with however, so keep this in mind.

PS Easy On The Eyes & Lovely And Bubbly

I knew from the first time I used the PS Lovely & Bubbly face wash that we wouldn’t get along. The scent was very lovely, but so overpowering that it irritated my skin after the second time I used it. Therefore in my first impressions I said I would not be trying this out to review it as it was messing with my skin. It’s a shame though, as it did do an amazing job at giving my face a really good clean.

In my first impressions the PS Easy On The Eyes was my firm favourite. Like I said, I love finding inexpensive makeup removers, so I was super happy about this. The only complaint I had was that it was the slightest bit oilier than other makeup removers but I was quite happy.

Now however, I’m not a huge fan. Basically, after the first few weeks, the same thing happened with this as did the face mask. Except it was around my eyes that began to crack. Not attractive. I was pretty disappointed that it was reacting bad with my skin, but of course, I stopped using it. Apart from that, it was great. Would I recommend it? Not really.

PS Face The Day

The last item that I tried out is the PS Face The Day moisturizer. In my first impressions I was unsure of this product because I was worried the scent would irritate my skin, but this actually turned out to be my favourite product that I tried out. It’s oil free with cucumber and witch hazel and is so light weight. It honestly feels like nothing is on my face. And the packaging is absolutely adorable.  I feel like this would suit all skin types but if you have a problem with overly scented things, then stay away.

Charcoal Face Mask | DIY

I’m sure you have all heard of the charcoal face mask that is taking the beauty world by storm, and if not- where the hell have you been?

The different variations of these mask come with a ton of promises such as clearer skin, tighter skin, smaller pores & no blackheads. I mean, yes, sign me up! But, sometimes these masks can get pretty expensive.

And that, is where the DIY masks come in. These have also been circulating around the beauty community and I have never actually tried them mainly because I was terrified. But I finally plucked up the courage, bought the items & made the mask.

I’m going to be sharing the ingredients, process & how I felt down below, so keep reading.

Ingredients:

– activated charcoal capsules

– non toxic glue (liquid)

First off, it gets very messy so be sure and wear something you don’t really care about getting stained. Secondly, I’m awful at measuring things out so this is all going to be an estimate.

Taking a bowl, you want to pour in 1/4 cup of glue. Then take 3 charcoal capsules, unscrew them and empty into bowl. Stir well until no powder is leftover visible.

Be sure to wash your face before doing this, preferably steam your face too, this will open your pores. Take an old makeup brush, or whatever you’d like and apply an even layer to your face. Avoid baby hairs, eyebrows and all other hair you don’t want gone (it WILL pull it out) also avoid under the eyes as it pulls dreadfully. Leave until fully dry and then peel off.

My experience wasn’t the most pleasant thing in the world. It hurts, not gonna lie. And it pulls the crap of your face, and I’m not talking about the dirt here. It literally pulls so much on your face. But would I do it again? Absolutely.

It got everything, despite how sore it was, my skin has never been clearer and I would recommend it.

Thank you so much for reading, I found you enjoyed please like and follow my blog so you never miss a post. Also leave me a comment down below if you try this mask out, or if you have already. I will be doing a giveaway once I reach 50 followers sonnet sure to follow me if you’d like Ike to win!

Who Would Like To Collab?

To officially kick off my new blog I’ve decided that I want to collab with a fellow newbie blogger, mainly because people are forever telling me how fun it is and that you can meet amazing people through it, etc. I know how scary it can be to start a blog, because, I have had other blogs before this, and having a support network of friends who are in the same boat is so important. If you want your blog to be a success in general, making friends with others online is highly recommended. And it would make the whole newbie process seem a little less daunting.

So, if there are any new bloggers or just bloggers out there who want to collab on anything beauty related, please feel free to email me. I would love to hear from you and I would absolutely love to collab. My email address is chloeantonia1@gmail.com

Have a fabulous day! X

Primark PS Skin Care | First Impressions

Today I will be speaking about something that I’ve been quite curious about for a while now and that’s Primark’s skin care range. I have very sensitive skin when it comes to skin care and although I love finding cheap makeup brands, I can never be togo sure when it comes to skin care.

In saying that, Primark had to have the cutest packaging on their products (I’m a sucker for cute packaging) so of course, I had to pick it up. And although my skin may resemble something similar to a tomato in a few days, I will be trying them out, because, well I must like the pain of inflamed skin. Jokes, kind of.

So the first product I picked up was the Face The Day moisturizer. It says that it’s oil free, has cucumber and witch hazel & is suitable for normal/combination skin types. I have tried this out, and although it left my face feeling super smooth and not at all oily, it is very scented which sometimes irritates my skin, but the scent is gorgeous so I’m not complaining too much. Also, can we all please appreciate how summery this packaging looks?

Next, I picked up the Love To Glow face mask. I am not one to judge at all when it comes to cheaper products- most of holy grails are from the drugstore, but as soon as I took the tub out of the box I knew we weren’t going to get along well. Even my mom said I was going to break out badly. Something about the colour unsettled me, or maybe it was something else about the product but I just felt really nervous putting it on my face.

Again, it smells amazing, but I don’t know how well it will go down with my skin. Honestly, I was really surprised at how nice my skin felt afterward. It was very nice and I’m excited to use it again.

I also picked up the Lovely and Bubbly foaming facial wash. I’ve used this twice now and I already know I will not be able to use it,unfortunately. It has really irritated my skin, which is a shame because it is actually a good face wash. It does a great job at taking off your makeup, especially when paired with the next product I’ll be speaking about.

This face wash is very strong in scent, even more than the rest and I really think that is probably why my skin has reacted so bad. So, if you do have a problem with scented products I’d stay away from this but if not, I’d go for it because it is nice despite the burning face and all.

The last product I will be speaking about and my personal favourite, the Easy On The Eyes makeup remover. I love, absolutely love finding an inexpensive makeup remover that is good. And I’ve only used this twice and I can already tell I will be repurchasing.

I was astonished at how well it broke down my eye makeup. It was fab, really. It is very oily compared to some other eye makeup removers, but just give your eyes a quick pat with a paper towel and you’re fine. Out of all the products, I would recommend this the most, but I will be doing a full review on everything (except the facial wash) in a few weeks after I have properly tested the products.
