Rodial 5 Minute Facial

Rodial 5 Minute Facial

An indulgent-looking treat in our September GlossyBox, the Rodial 5 Minute Facial is a mask/peel to gently exfoliate and clarify the skin. It’s a thick clay-based mask which feels a little gritty but smooths easily on to the skin, the scent is nothing to worry about, but isn’t terribly exciting either. After five minutes you gently rub the mask off with your fingertips – this sounds easy, but it’s a bit messy and not all of the mask rubs away, so you have do follow with lukewarm water. The look of the skin afterwards is good, it looks clear and smooth, but the feel of the skin is not so good – skin felt dry and parched, desperate for hydration!  We quickly followed with a toner as skin felt uncomfortable. For oilier skin types this does help remove excess oil and helps with balancing, but if you have normal or dry skin we’d not recommend this for you. Overall we were disappointed – at £35 for 50ml we think you can find better exfoliators and masks for a similar price and for a lot cheaper too.

Kiehl’s Grapefruit Gently Exfoliating Body Scrub

Kiehl’s Grapefruit Gently Exfoliating Body Scrub

We were delighted to find a grapefruit scrub having heard that grapefruit is great for blitzing cellulite! Could it be true?! We were expecting a super-zesty scent, but were pleasantly surprised by the creaminess of the Kiehl’s Grapfruit Scrub… the richness of the cream means you can really give your skin a good treatment as it doesn’t wash away or disappear to nothing as you massage it into your skin. It really is gentle too – gritty yes, but in a nice way! It does scratch at the skin and there’s no redness as you get with some exfoliators. We were particularly impressed when using regularly on thighs and upper arms – skin truly is left much smoother and softer – if you’re prone to those little bobbles of upper arms this is definitely worth a try. The price perhaps prevents this being an everyday scrub, but treat yourself once or twice a week and you will certainly notice a difference. Available from: Kiehl’s Beauty Expert Space NK Pin...
