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.

Justine Tissue Oil Review

I’ve got a very loyal relationship with tissue oil; I believe that it is a vital part of a 20 Something’s beauty Regime. Like, prevention is better than cure, babes.

Most people use tissue oil for stretch marks; preventing them or getting rid of them. That’s Justine Tissue Oil’s claim to fame: that it can get rid of stretch marks in a matter of weeks. In fact, this miracle tissue oil promises to:

• Banish scars and stretch marks twice as fast as other tissue oils

• Protect the skin against sun damage

• Help the skin look younger in under a week

• Improve skin texture

• Reduce lines and wrinkles

I’m lucky enough to not have any stretch marks yet, besides a few small ones here and there. But I do have a rare skin problem, which causes uneven skin in the affected areas. I also have extremely dry skin, so I was hoping that this tissue oil could help me eradicate these two concerns.

I found that after 3 or 4 weeks of using this product, my skin is sufficiently softer and smoother. My driest skin areas look a lot better and feel amazing now. So yay!

Unfortunately, This tissue oil did not do much for my pigmentation issue caused by my skin problem, which is to be expected- I’ve seen dermatologists in every corner of the city and no one has been able to tell me what causes this issue or how to cure it. So I was really hoping for a miracle with this tissue oil.

Although I didn’t get my own desired results, I have seen this product work for a lot of other people, so I wouldn’t write it off based off my assessment. It might be the miracle product you’ve been waiting for.

I’ve been using Justine products for the past two months now and the brand has really impressed me. Even though it didn’t change the appearance of my uneven skin tone, my skin feels amazing. And it has really helped to get rid of small scars I have on various parts of my body. The Justine brand is beyond amazing,

Have you tried any of their products? Let me know in the comments section.

Special shout out to Rubybox for the hookup and Dexter Williams for proofreading like a boss.

BYYYE!

Justine Dailycare Hydrating Review

What’s up Beauties!

I felt super spoilt this week, when Rubybox sent me this amazing range from Justine. The Dailycare Hydrating Range is formulated for dry skin types and is a 3 step daily regimen.

Justine has really gone all out with the Dailycare range, they have formulated different ranges depending on your skincare needs. The Dailycare products includes ranges for  Hydrating, Perfecting and Balancing the skin. As I have dry skin, I was sent the Hydrating range.

IMG_4019

It’s clinically proven to increase hydration in the skin after one use for up to 8 hours. 

I’ve been using this product for two weeks now and I can see the difference in my skin already. 

The cleanser leaves my skin looking brighter immediately after I’ve washed it – it doesn’t make my skin feel dry, instead it feels so refreshed that I feel like I could just use the cleanser and go on with my day. 

I’m not usually a fan of toners, but this one is quite nice- it’s a gel toner which is different to the toning liquids and lotions available on the market. It’s formulated to retain the skin’s natural moisture. Personally I feel that while it succeeds in removing excess dirt and bacteria on my skin, it leaves my skin feeling tight and in need of the moisturiser. 

The Moisturiser is my favourite in the range, it has SPF 20, to protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays but besides that it leaves my skin feeling EXTREMELY hydrated for hours. Literally it feels like I’ve just applied it even hours later. 

I wasn’t familiar with this brand until I received this range, I haven’t seen it in any retail stores, I think it works like Avon, where you need to order products from a consultant. You can check out their website, it explains in depth how you can go about getting your hands on these amazing products:Justine Website

Check out my skin’s natural glow after two weeks of using this product:

And the best part? The range won’t break your bank. The Cleanser and the Toner go for R79 each and the moisturiser is R159. That’s R317 for the whole range!!!!!!!!!!

Have you used the Justine brand before? Let me know what your favourite products are in the comments.

Okay.

Nivea Toning Lotion Review

Whats up, 20 Somethings!

It’s been a minute since I’ve written a review, but never fear, good things come to those who wait!

We all know how I feel about Nivea products, they’re amazing quality and so damn affordable. I literally do a little happy dance whenever I get sent something from Nivea.

This time, Rubybox sent me the new Perfect and Radiant Toning Lotion for oily skin. This product promises to control shine, purify and clear your skin, while also preventing blemishes. It’s got Magnolia Extract and is developed for skin which is prone to oiliness and blemishes.

From my previous reviews, you’ll know I’m not always the biggest fan of toners, I sometimes find that some toning products are unnecessary for your skincare routine and a lot of products often irritate the skin.

After using this toning lotion for the past few days, I can safely say it’s a toner like no other. It smells like a lotion and does not leave my skin feeling dry or tight after application. In fact it works so well I can go without moisturiser if I feel like it.

If you suffer from oily skin, this is a great product to add to your skincare regime.

Here’s a picture of my skin after two weeks of using this product!

Until next time lovelies!

NIVEA: Perfect and Radiant Review

Quickie Review!

I love Nivea, let’s just start with that. They provide affordable products that are great for your skin. Honestly.

Untitled design-2
I’ve used this product in the past and when Rubybox sent me some more this month, I was reminded how much I love this product. It’s a dream on my skin, it spreads easily and feels like I’m covering my skin with a silk mask. It provides all day smoothness and radiance. My skin has a beautiful glow all day and feel extremely nourished and refreshed! This is definitely value for money, you won’t regret it.

It’s a day cream, which contains SPF 15. (Hello, sun protection!) It fits well into your skin routine and will leave your skin feeling amazing! I pair it with the Nivea Gentle Cleansing Cream Wash and the Nivea Refreshing Toner.

xoxo,

Nadine!
