Anatomicals Spray Misty For Me Facial Spritz

I do love a spray toner… essentially that’s what a facial spritz is 😉  but the spray on my bottle of Spray Misty For Me was a bit brutal and leaky so it didn’t give me a nice fine spray for my face. The product itself is pretty good – I switched to using it like an ordinary toner with a cotton wool pad – and it is quite soothing and refreshing, leaving skin soft and fairly smooth. It’s not my most favourite toner though, and I wouldn’t choose it again as it didn’t quite sweep away everything left behind by my cleanser. What I LOVE about it is when I use it on the other end of my body… it’s fab for tired feet!! The ingredients of rose, lavender, aloe and witch hazel make it perfect for putting a spring in your step. And that’s what the 4 stars are for 😉 Available from: Superdrug For more info about the Anatomicals range visit www.anatomicals.net   Pin...

Nuxe Crème Fraîche de Beauté 24H Soothing & Moisturizing Cream

Nuxe always bring high-quality indulgent products and this 24 hour moisturising cream is no different – we tried the Normal Sensitive Crème Fraîche de Beauté. The thick cream is actually quite light on application, absorbing easily into skin – a little does go a long way though, so no need to slather it on wildly despite it’s delicious orange blossom scent 😉 Crème Fraîche de Beauté leaves skin feeling wonderfully smooth and hydrated and is suitable for day and night, though some testers have found it a little too much to use for both – being a 24 hour moisturiser you may want to choose an alternative day cream. It is very comfortable on the skin, and after 2-3 weeks of use this cream visibly helped even out skin tone and reduce redness, though it’s best result was the smoothing aspect. At £17 for a 30ml tube, £25 for a 50ml jar this is an excellent value cream – we’d recommend the jar, getting the last bit out of the tube was a bit difficult! Available from: Nuxe Escentual Pin...

Olay Regenerist 3-point Treatment Cream

With Olay being one of the best-known and best-selling skincare brands, there’s little that can go wrong? Olay Regenerist 3-point Treatment Cream is part of their anti-aging range, said to treat the hardest areas of the face – eyes, jawline and neck – lots of us gave it a try but with mixed and disappointing results. Though it’s said to be good to target eyes, all our testers found the cream to rich for the eye area, preferring instead an eye cream or gel. Some of our testers found the cream too rich in general, especially those with sensitive skin – seeing the Fragrance Free label they’d hoped for something good, but unfortunately they found it caused breakouts and redness (in one case soreness) so stopped using it. For some the cream was good, but they found it gave few results worthy of a cream costing around £30.  While those that found it helped smooth some fine lines and improved skin tone in that it appeared that skin was firmer and less saggy, overall our ladies were not terribly impressed 🙁 Instead take a look at Olay’s Classic Care or Total Effects range, Avon’s Anew range or Arbonne’s RE9 range.
