This mask is perfect for applying on Sunday. Yes, I applied this over the weekend.

Right – so, you’ll need a sachet, a bowl and 75ml water. The sachet comes with its wooden spatula, so don’t worry about that.

Once you mix the powder sachet with the water, it’ll become watery-dough/clay-like. Apply it all over your face once you’re ready, but be prepared to get messy.

I really felt like I had a Mrs. Doubtfire moment with this mask. The mixture was dripping everywhere, so I had to rub it on my neck too!

It’s a peel-off mask, those are my favourite. Reminds me of the times when I used to peel the dry PVA glue from my hands. I was a very normal child growing up, not sure what happened along the way…

I did find that it dried relatively quickly after the getting messy fiasco. Once dry, I looked hysterical. There were dried up icicle-shaped drips hanging off my chin. I looked a picture!

Also, I made the mistake of covering literally all of my face, eyes and mouth included. (I do this every time)

Get ready to peel off after 10 mins. It comes off smoothly, I promise. Peeling the mask off was as fun as I anticipated. I could see and talk again, yay!

Did I feel the anti-ageing effects? I felt my skin was firmer for sure, it was glowing even.

I truly believe that the more I use this mask (making it a staple to my routine), the better my skin will become over time.

Cons? Messy. Almost too much quantity for me. I was struggling to finish it, so I ended up applying it on my neck also. In the end, my shirt (which I was wearing throughout, unbeknownst to me how messy it would be) got a chance to try it too.

Pros? Dries quickly. Feels really cooling and soothing on skin. Results are as claimed. It and you cannot go wrong. Buy it here, now.

First of all, neroli. Second of all, neroli. Third of also neroli.

Do you understand how good spraying your face with orange blossom water actually is??? If you don’t, try it and find out.

Ne-ro-ro-ro my face gently with this mist, (merri)li (merri)li (merri)li my face is hydrated and smells like a dream! 🎵

I got it (in a bag with various of other Pier Auge samples) as a freebie on the plane (but this was the one that made it onto my blog).

I’ve been spraying it every day whilst on holiday as it really hydrates and leaves my skin glowing. But, I need to spray sparingly as I’m currently on rations!

I’ve been trying to find it online to no avail. However, next time I’m in France, I’m tracking it down like Ash does PokĂ©mon!

In the meantime though, I’ll have a look for it in London too. Saying that, I’ve gone as far as checking Pier Auge’s website and even they don’t seem to have it.

Therefore, is this a miraculous product that only I’ve got my hands on? Probably and/or definitely.

Pier Auge, if you’re reading this, stock up on your Orange Blossom face mists, please. I’d like to buy 91091369 of them. Thanks.

I’m back again after popular demand of myself. I popularly demand myself on regular [Beauty Bae]sis.

It helps that I’m actually a sister to my brother. That’s how biology works. Welcome to Science with your host… ‘Mii.

Without further ado, let’s get writing/typing/posting.

Here’s the Holy Grail of my skincare routine WHENST the real P.I.M.P-les situate themselves on my face… ‘The Breakout Control Acne Treatment Facial Lotion‘, which has surprisingly more names than ALL of my Government and non-Government names put together.

  • Helps to correct the appearance of blemishes

  • Reduces the appearance of dullness & rough texture

  • Calms and soothes skin, while evening skin tone, for a clear complexion

  • Over time, skin appears healthy and youthfully refined

  • Suitable for sensitive skin and/or problem skin

  • Suitable for use both day & night

I don’t always have acne, but when I do, it’s a blemish that you can SPOT from miles away. Please INCLUDE the pun. It also happens right before my FREE lady monthly subscription to hormones.

However, I can confirm that since using this Breakout Control Acne Treatment, I’ve hardly had any.

It’s a miracle cream that everyone who’s prone to problem-skin should try.

I love Kiehl’s because you can ask for a sample without having to buy the whole thing. Also, they’re so confident about their products that they’ll let you return it (opened and used) if not satisfied.

I think I’ve only used one product from Kiehl’s that didn’t work with my skin. So, I told them about it and they told me to bring it back and swap it for something else. That’s the first time I’ve seen a skincare company do that. Literal legends.

So, rest assured if and when you purchase from Kiehl’s, you’re investing in the whole experience.

It’s almost Easter weekend. Also, I’m not going to be online so… Feel free to enjoy my Kiehl’s post while I’m away (other posts are available).

If you’re looking for the ultimate face cream, look no further than Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. It’s so ultra that I’d apply it at the altar.

It’s 6:54am GMT as I write this, so make of that what you will.

Our #1 best-selling facial cream; now with more epic proof. With a unique lightweight texture and up to 24-hour lasting hydration, our “ultra-hydrator” immediately leaves skin up to 2.3X more hydrated.* Formulated with Glacial Glycoprotein and olive-derived Squalane, this non-greasy, lightweight moisturiser is uniquely formulated for all skin types – even sensitive skin. Now proven performance in everyday extreme relative humidities. 

• Our #1 worldwide best-selling face cream 
• Provides up to 24-hour lasting hydration for soft, smooth, healthy-looking skin
• Balances hydration levels with 2.3X more moisture.* 
• Absorbs into skin easily with an ultra-lightweight texture 
• Tested in everyday and extreme environments 
• Formulated with Glacial Glycoprotein, derived from sea glaciers, and olive-derived Squalane 
• For all skin types, including sensitive skin 

Anyway, it’s a good all round cream. Apparently, it lasts 24 hours, although I’m not about to keep a cream on my face that long without washing it just to test the theory.

It hydrated, moisturised and kept my skin’s texture looking slicker than an oil spill (or several).

Do I like it? Of course. Should you try it? Also of course.

Do I have a new neighbour that snores better than the finest tuba-playing member of an orchestra? Yes. Am I complaining? Not at all. I love nothing more than hearing a symphony.
