2011 Skincare Rehab Products
Saturday, March 05, 2011
For whatever reason we decide to embark on a new one it's quite fun to share the journey with others SO... remember when I was ever so disappointed that LUSH discontinued Baby face Cleanser and I frantically stocked up like a woman possessed & even received a few at Christmas lol. I've held back on using the two I have left as the only negative side I experienced with baby face was that the fact it was an oil based product therefore when I put it under the tap get the produce off to put on my face...I'd never have that much control on what was actually coming off. Therefore .... more product gone than what you needed but I loved it, swore by it...wanted to marry it and make more and more baby face babies because it helped clear up my face.
Going into the store in January I asked the assistant ... "Do you have a dupe for baby face ? " and she recommended me :
She said it's the same oil based constancy as Baby face but you have more control over what you are using.
- Worth a shot right ?
As you can see it looks like a cream it's very soft and you can feel it's an oil base. Massaging it into the skin without any water you can just see a slight sheen they then say you should use a damp cotton wool pad. I've found on myself that it's best to use at least 3 because if I use the same one, it seems I'm spreading the oil residue around my face instead of taking it off and I'm left with a shiny face. Yes my face is smooth and soft afterwards but I don't feel I get the same benefits I did from my baby face. I think it might be back to my Liz Earle Hot Cleanse & Polish....
New Face MaskOn my
I ordered mine off Ebay as I found it the cheapest there for a 12oz tub. I was seeing websites selling it for £32 I thought nah uh ... I paid £8 in all and I got it the next day - on standard delivery ( the seller no longer sells this item ) but if you search on ebay grab the best deal :o)
The first time I opened up the tub, I got the BIGGEST whiff of mint but what did come to mind automatically was toothpaste
Applying it, which I left it on for quite a long time.. to the point it set and was cracking. Even though it does tighten and your left not being able to speak I just enjoyed the deep cleanse and when I washed it off with warm water the feel of my face afterwards was like "Hello baby's bottom" .. I used it during my time of the month and my breakout spots were very limited.
I do have to say so far... I adore this face mask it's working quite well for me. While my body is in rehab this certainly does rejuvenate the feeling of my tired skin.
Have you tried either products ?
What face products can you currently not live without ?
Peace & Love
