Alpha H Liquid Gold Collection

Hi beauties

I bought this collection from QVCUK a couple of months ago while it was a today’s special value. I like Alpha H but have got out the habit of using the brand and this set intrigued me.

There were 2 new launches in the collection, the Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream and the Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask. I also hadn’t tried the Liquid Gold 24 Hour Moisture Repair Cream so looking forward to trying that.

I love peels in a mask, they’re so quick and convenient and you get results in about 10 minutes. Who wouldn’t want that?? I have tried it a couple of times but want to test it further to see how I can work it into a routine. Keep your eyes peeled as all products will be individually reviewed

Till next time,

Jordan Samuel The Aftershow Treatment Cleanser*

Hi beauties,

Earlier on in the year, I received a parcel with the WHOLE Jordan Samuel Skin line. There wasn’t a note or a card to say who it was from so I’m still stumped!

Anyhoo, within that wondrous package was this, The Aftershow Treatment Cleanser. This was known as Pliè, it’s a sumptuous gel-to-oil texture that’s easy to apply to your skin without dragging. Grapeseed and Jojoba oils dissolve the makeup and grime and the Willow Bark extract and fruit acids provides a very gentle exfoliation.

You can emulsify The Aftershow Treatment Cleanser, as someone with an oily skin I love that it rinses clean with no residue. I adore this cleanser, apart from Cream cleansers, gel-to-oil is my next favourite formula. I find you get a real deep cleanse at no detriment to your skin.

Now a shameless plea to Jordan: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE come to the U.K.!! I am going to be so sad when this is finished! Due to shipping and custom charges it makes this out of my reach unfortunately. Jordan’s products are really affordable for you lucky US peeps, a 94ml tube is $20.00 which equates to just over £15.00. This cleanser is absolutely beautiful and a joy to use.

Burts Bees Deep Cleansing Cream

Hi beauties,

Today I have the Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream, I tried this a good few years ago when my brother and sister in law bought me a Burts Bees Kit for my birthday and I remember liking it but obvs have never reviewed it for the blog.

I like Burts Bees a lot, I am a huge fan of their Shea Hand Cream and the Hand Salve but haven’t tried an awful lot of their facial skincare, so when I had one of my Latest In Beauty boxes last year and this was a choice I snapped it up.

The texture of this cleanser is beautiful. I am incredibly fond of cream cleansers, it was these type of cleansers that really ignited my love of skincare. The way they cut through makeup, SPF and general filth that accumulates on your fizzog throughout the day is brilliant, Soap Bark and Chamomile does this without stripping, my skin is always feeling super clean but never stripped. There is one ingredient in here though that means this cleanser is not for sensitive types: menthol. Lovely zingy fresh feeling but I know that does put some of you off. I wouldn’t use it to be remove eye makeup because it is quite stimulating.

Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream comes full size in a 170ml tube and is £10.00 at John Lewis.

Your Good Skin Calming Cream Cleanser

Hi beauties,

Another cleanser today, but this is a high street one. Your Good Skin is one of Boots brands and relatively new, I haven’t seen a lot of reviews on the products and what I have tried has been a bit hit and miss.

Calming Cream Cleanser is part of the blemish clearing range. It’s more of a gel-cream rather than a traditional cream texture. This has salicylic acid in which I do like to have in a cleanser as well as an acid toner, how I use this is dampen my hands and apply, leaving it on while I wash my body and hair in the shower.

I love this cleanser, it’s perfect for me as an AM cleanser, it has a light fresh scent so would appeal to both genders and all ages. Calming Cream Cleanser makes my skin feel so clean and smooth without that awful stripping feeling. I bought this in late spring and it’s still going!

The tube is 125ml and excellent value at £5.99, although often on promotion.

Beauty Pie Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser

Hi beauties,

Beauty Pie again! Today it’s the turn of Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser.

This is a thick milky gel/balm that turns into an oil and then emulsifies with water into a milk. I love this kind of formula, it’s amazing at blitzing makeup and grime but doesn’t make your skin squeaky.

Japanfusion Pure Tranforming Cleanser is a definite repurchase and one I would recommend for all skin types. You can use it both for AM and PM cleanses and of course for makeup removal. I love the versatility of it, it is absolutely brilliant. £25 for non members, but members pay just £6.58.

Poppy Austin Vitamin C Cleanser

Hi beauties,

Today I have Poppy Austin’s Vitamin C Cleanser Anti Aging Wash.

Poppy Austin is a vegan, organic, cruelty free company that makes products with Organic Moroccan Argan Oil. According to their website the instructions on how to create the purest of Argan oils were discovered by a British couple during a house clearance in 2007 and these instructions inspired the “birth of the company”.

This Vitamin C Cleanser is Aloe based with 15% Vitamin C for smoothing and antioxidant properties. It’s a gel cleanser that can remove makeup, but not eye makeup, sulfate free and gentle.

I use this mostly as a morning or second cleanse, it’s nice but I’m not blown away by it. I think there are better face washes that are much cheaper (I’m thinking Dr Organic Dead Sea Mineral Face Wash) and for me more pleasurable to use.

I bought mine from Amazon where it does vary in price. I paid £17.49 while at the time of writing it is £16.62. I wouldn’t buy this again, I think it’s expensive for what it is, I didn’t see any of the benefits of the Vitamin C element. I’m not sure I will try anything else from the brand, there are many other things on my wish list before I would consider it.

La Roche Posay Hydrating Gentle Cleanser

Hi beauties,

You guys know I LOVE a cleanser, I probably own more cleansers than any other skincare. I’m always on the lookout for one I’ve not tried before and when I was very kindly sent this sample in a care package from Sari @talesofskincare in January.

This came at a perfect time, you all know my skin has been acting up over the past few months so needed something that was gentle, but removed makeup when I wanted it to.

I love this cleanser, it’s brilliant. Easy to rinse off in the shower or to remove with a cloth in the evening. It’s a light lotion texture that’s spreads well so no rubbing on sensitive skin. It’s also fragrance free so excellent for those who don’t want or can’t have fragrance in their skincare.

I struggled to find this, but found it under a different name, Toleriane Caring Wash on various pharmacy websites. I bought a 400ml bottle from http://www.easyparapharmacie.co.uk for £12.92. Caring Wash is for facial use, but I did try it as a shower gel too. My skin was left feeling soft and not stripped at all, so I would take this away with me for a multi use cleanser. A definite repurchase!
