Environ Revival Masque and Hydrating Oil Capsules Review

What’s up 20 Somethings!

Now if you’ve been following my blog from its developing stages, one of the first beauty products and brands I was sent to Review was the Environ Original Range. Since then I’ve been in love with their products and do whatever I can to get my hands on them.

So it was only natural that I did a little dance when Beauty Bulletin called me to let me know I’d be a part of their new Environ Campaign!

The range they sent me consisted of two products: The Revival Masque and the Hydrating Oil Capsules. It was love at first use for me. Immediately after my first application I felt an improvement in my skin- but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me tell you about the products first.

The Revival Masque:

This innovative Masque contains alpha Hydroxy acids which help exfoliate the upper most layer of the skin leaving you with fresher looking skin that looks and feels revived and smooth. Over time this product will help the skin feel more hydrated and firmer. This product is aimed at keeping your skin looking youthful- let’s face it, you’re never too young to use anti-aging products. Prevention is better than cure.

The packaging is super sleek and innovative, with a pump dispenser your product is as good as new no matter how many times you use it. It’s a “no mess no fuss” application, just grab the brush that accompanies the product, pump the dispenser and apply the Masque! I’m obsessed.

The Hydrating Oil Capsules:

These capsules contain a blend of retinol and antioxidants to protect the skin from the damaging affect of free radicals leaving the skin looking radiant and silky smooth.

The container contains capsules, which you can use twice a week. Guys, I wish I could upload the feeling the content of these capsules give your skin. It’s mind blowing.

Okay! Review Time!

The ingredients in the Masque are extremely strong and active, so on my first application I experienced a tingling sensation. The pamphlet within the box suggested starting out with only 10 mins before washing off, gradually as your skin gets more used to the product it can be worn for up to 20 mins or even as an over-night Masque.

Even after my first application my skin looked revived and radiant. The Masque applies easily and you don’t need much to spread over your entire face and neck. I actually had to tell myself to stop because it felt so good to apply, I just kept going. I’ve only been using the product twice a week for 4 weeks, and I’m sure with continued use this product will do wonders for my skin and aging prevention.

The Hydrating Oil Capsules are a gift from the heavens. Each application is in its own little capsule to ensure that the oil is in optimum condition for application. Just twist off the tip or cut it off and apply it generously all over your face then rub it in and feel the magic. Now I must warn you, once you’ve applied this product you will not be able to stop touching your face! It’s amazing. The oil is absorbed into the skin leaving it feeling extremely silky soft instead of oily. This feeling lasts all day and the next. These oil capsules are a game changer, I’ll definitely be repurchasing them in the future.

The revival Masque retails for R1020 and the Hydrating Oil Capsules(30 pack) retail at R730 – so it’s a bit on the pricey side of life. I know I can’t afford to be buying these products every single month. But they are worth it guys. And they last quite a while as they do not need to be applied every single day for you to get results. Add them to your Christmas list, ask your rich single auntie to hook you up or start an Environ savings fund- just do what you need to do to experience this product.

Like, with prices this high, I can’t afford to lie to you about this, so trust me. These products worked wonders for my skin and I’m sure they’ll do the same for you.

6 Products I Can’t Live Without

There are a few beauty products I cannot imagine my life without. And when you find a product that works for you, the nice thing to do is share it with others. So here we go 20 Somethings, these are the 6 Products I can’t live without.

IMG_2144

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
This is the make up remover product you are missing in your life. It removes waterproof make up effortlessly, just with the wipe of a cotton wool swob. And it lasts forever! I’ve had my bottle for over 6 months now and it’s still got a quarter left before it finishes. It also works as a great toner for your skin, hello! Two-in-one? Yes please!

Environ Balancing Masque
We all know how much I love Environ. Their products are just quality and worth every cent (They’re pretty pricey!) But if I was having a bad month and couldn’t afford to buy the products, the Balancing Masque would be the one I fork out the cash for. You can read my review on it here. But basically it works as a micro-exfoliator and a hydrating masque (and you know I love two in one products) The one I’m using, is still from the package Environ sent me in March, so this product lasts forever. And it makes my skin feel AND look AMAZING.

Avène Skin Tone Perfecter
Now this product is a lifesaver, which is why I mention it so often in my posts! Don’t feel like wearing make up today? Chilled vibes. Just rub on some tinted moisturiser and you’re good to go! It Hydrates your skin while leaving your face looking flawless. (Read my review here)

Urban Decay Quick Fix Spray
I love this product because it fits in my handbag, I can take it wherever I need to go and give my face a spray when I feel I need it. Not that you’d ever need to reapply this product. One spray sets my make up for hours, leaving it looking just as great as it did a the beginning of the night.

Benefit Girl Meets Pearl
Now a good highlighter can change your life. It’s confidence in a bottle. Now, I have a lot of highlighting products, but this one is by far my favourite. You can achieve a dazzling glow with this product but it can also give you a subtle glow too. It’s a bit pricey, but I only wear it on special occasions (by special occasions I mean every time I go out! – lol kidding. But seriously)

Rimmel Scandaleyes Reloaded Mascara
This mascara changed my life. No other mascara has come close to this one. It gives you length for days! It also provides a thickness in your lashes but doesn’t clump them all up together. Giving you long, individual lashes that are perfect for any occasion.

So girls, those are the 6 products I cannot live without! What are some of yours? Be sure to let me know in the comments which beauty products have changed your life and I’ll be sure to check them out!

I’ve been trialling two amazing skincare products recently, which will feature on the blog next week! So look out for that!

FINAL REVIEW: Environ Skincare Range

Hey Girlfriend,

I was extremely excited to receive my Skincare goodies from Environ and Beauty Bulliten. My package consisted of the following products:
1. Pre Cleanser
2. Balancing masque
3. Gel foaming Cleanser
4. Toner
5. Eye gel
6. Debut moisturizer!

style sneakers-2

If you have been following my posts over the past few weeks, you’ll have read all my reviews and research regarding each individual product!

So as I end my final week of my trail, it’s time for me to give the final verdict, Can my skin be Reborn Beautiful?
The answer is YES!
Yes!
Yes!
Yes!

When I started the trial, my skin was dehydrated and therefore very dry. My skin tone was uneven and even blotchy on some days. Due to lack of sleep I was also developing fine lines under my eyes- not cool!

Now that I have ended the trial, I am able to reflect on the changes made on my skin. My skin feels so much softer and hydrated due to the intensive care I’ve received from using the Environ Skincare Range! Seriously! I can’t stop touching my skin.

My skin tone is more even and clear, I go most days without make up now because my skin looks and feels so good.
Any spots or skin irregularities that appeared during the trial were gone within one day!

Side Effects:

I did experience a dry patch form along my jaw line during the trial, due to my skin reacting to the amount of Vitamin A it was receiving, it cleared up after a few days and I was told by my Environ Skincare specialist that it was all part of the process.

I did also experience a tingling feeling while sweating during a workout- it’s the same sensation you get after getting a wax or going for threading.
Fav products:
Look, the Range may not be affordable to everyone, if you’re gonna try out Environ but don’t want to break the bank, my favorite products were the Pre- Cleanser, the Balancing Masque and the Debut Moisturiser. I definitely experienced a visible change in my skin immediately after using those products! These products are what’s missing in your skin care routine!!

I never used to spend a lot of time on my skin, I’d use a simple Cleanser and Toner once a day, but this trial has taught me the importance of Skincare from a young age! And now I look forward to giving my skin the TLC it needs every morning and evening!

What a great experience it has been working with Environ and Beauty Bulliten! I can now safely say that I am an Environ Girl!

Until Next Time!

Bye, Girl!

Frequently Asked Questions about the Environ Step-Up System

Happy Friday, 20 Somethings!

So as I enter the second last week of my Environ skin Journey, I’m starting to take note of the effects the product has had on my skin. There are a few negative things but loads of positive things, so be sure to check out my post next week, where I will be giving you the final verdict on The Environ Skincare Range.

This week, I am focussing on their Original Debut Moisturiser (Vitamin Step-Up System Level 1)

This cream is light moisturiser containing a low concentration of Vitamin A which is essential as a skin Nutrient. It also contains Vitamin C and E as well as a combination of antioxidants, that will leave your skin feeling smooth and nourished. This moisturiser contributes to nourished skin and also improves the appearance of uneven skin tone as well as sun damage.

So let’s get into some of the most asked questions about this product, shall we?

Frequently Asked Questionsabout the EnvironStep-Up System

 

What are the signs that your skin is lacking vitamin A?
When your skin lacks Vitamin A, it will be uneven, rough and sallow. Due to loss of collagen and elastin, your skin may suffer from pre-mature ageing.

How does the Environ STEP-UP™ SYSTEM work?
This system starts on low levels of Vitamin A (I am currently using the Debut which is level 1) The moisturisers go up to Ultra, with the levels of Vitamin A increasing with every step.

How soon can you step up your moisturiser?
After going your first tube of the debut moisturiser, you can then do two tubes of the next levels each before moving on.
What are the different vitamin A derivatives – is the same form found in all skin care?
The different forms of vit A are Beta-Carotene, Retinyl Palmitate, Retinyl Acetate and Retinol. Different forms are used in different products.

What does vitamin A do for skin?
It helps to normalise skin functions and protects the DNA of cells and prevents sun induced aging while also hydrating the skin.

There you have it, if you have any other questions about the Environ Skincare Range, please don’t hesitate to send them to me! I’ll see you guys next week for my final review!
