Turbliss Bioactive Face Mask for Problem Skin & EcoTools Bamboo Flat Foundation Brush - Review*

Turbliss products have a high level of Humic, Fulvic and Hymatomelanic acids that penetrate deep into the skin and help the cells start functioning normally. Which means that the skin is then able to produce more collagen and hyaluronic acid that are the building blocks of healthy and young looking skin. In addition to humic substances, peat contains minerals, lipids, amino acids, enzymes, microelements, phytonutrients and sulphur. Bioactive substances penetrate deep into the skin, restore its elasticity and normal functioning. Turbliss Peat Mask is pure bog plant power that has been maturing inside our Mother Earth for thousands of years. Peat is by composition completely unique as it contains rare organic acids that work its magic on a cellular level. Our masks for different types of skin can help clean clogged pores, smooth wrinkles, tone the skin, cure eczemas, efficiently reduce acne, alleviate psoriasis, dermatitis and all in all, make the skin healthier and more vibrant.

I've always come across people applying their face mask with a brush so I thought I'd try out this EcoTools Bamboo Flat Foundation brush to help me apply the Turbliss Bioactive Face Mask for Problem Skin. EcoTools Cosmetic Brushes are made with cruelty-free synthetic bristles, sustainable bamboo handles and recycled aluminium ferrules. I found the brush helped me apply the face mask much more evenly than my fingers would have and I wasn't left with any wasted product on my fingers. With the face mask it shouldn't be left to dry on the face, this helps to regulate sebum production and dryness in order to make the skin function as it should, this was new to me as I'm used to letting a mask dry. Before applying the mask you also need to moisten the skin and keep the mask moist afterwards, which I did with my LUSH Cosmetics Tea Tree Toner Spray. I found the mask to be very thick and heavy, but once on it really feels likes it's getting to work on your skin! After the mask had been on my face for around five minutes I removed it which was a very messy process, I found the best way to wash it off was when showering! My skin was then left feeling soft but very red, but don't worry the redness afterwards is only due to the increasement of microcirculation and metabolic stimulation which is normal when using peat masks. Overall it was a very exciting face mask to use!

PHB Ethical Beauty Rejuvenating Hand Cream with Jasmine & Galbanum - Review*

PHB is a pioneering British run family business dedicated to providing high quality and effective beauty products made using 100% naturally derived ingredients. Creating effective natural beauty products that don't cost the earth is their passion. PHB products are free from palm oil, animal ingredients, parabens, SLS, DEA, TEA, PEG, alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, artificial perfumes/fragrance, petrochemicals, Methylisothiazolinone, phthalates, colourants, silicone, mineral oils and propylene glycol. PHB products are also organic, vegan & halal and the ingredients purchased are from companies who do not test on animals and they don't sell any of their products in China.

This Rejuvenating Hand Cream with Jasmine & Galbanum is made with a creamy formula that hydrates and rejuvenates skin yet absorbs instantly leaving no greasiness or residue. This cream is made with high levels of gamma linoleic acid which help resist the effects of ageing, organic butter and botanical actives which relieve dryness, soften skin and increase suppleness and organic evening primrose which is rich in omegas 3,6 & 9 which help strengthen and repair skin. 

I'm always on the hunt for a hand cream that moisturises well and doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy after applying the product. I came across this PHB Ethical Beauty Rejuvenating Hand Cream on LoveLula and was instantly intrigued as it's described as being a creamy formula that hydrates and rejuvenates skin yet absorbs instantly leaving no greasiness or residue. I've been using this cream for about a month now and it's probably the best hand cream I've come across so far, making it my current favourite! As the colder weather approaches me here, I've felt my skin getting less soft and drier, especially when it comes to my hands. The one thing I really dislike about hand creams is that they can sometimes make your hands feel very oily even hours after applying the product. The main reason I love this PHB Ethical Beauty Hand Cream is that as soon as you've applied and rubbed it the product, it's already sunk into your skin and doesn't leave your hands feeling oily or sticky. Once I've run out of this product I'll definitely be repurchasing it again as my hands can't seem to live without it now!
