Then there are the natural options, Kosmea's daily facial exfoliant and purifying cream cleanser. Both are infused with rose hips and other beautiful ingredients. The exfoliant is too grainy for me and a little too spread out. It's perfect for sensitive skin, but I am just not getting the results I want out of it. I prefer smaller and more clustered grains. The cleanser on the other hand is absolutely wonderful and leaves my skin both clean and balanced. It also smells like I'm having a facial every time I use it so it brings back good memories.
I was recently lucky enough to win a Toni&Guy hair pack from LifeStyled which is one of my favourite reads. One of the products I received was the Dry Shampoo which actually smells great and that's unusual for a dry shampoo. As a dry shampoo connoisseur (at the last count I had eight), I was really looking forward to trying this but as much as I love the packaging and the big size, it has disappointed me somewhat. The Dry Shampoo does a fantastic job in creating volume and cleaning up not so clean hair, but it leaves white stuff behind so it looks like I have dandruff. I don't like it when dry shampoo leaves traces because after all it defeats the purpose of having clean-looking hair.
Another exfoliant I have tried is ExfoliKate from Kate Somerville. I love a good pun, and ExfoliKate does not disappoint. I use it as a mask instead of a quick exfoliant and leave the green goo on for ten minutes. The grains are the perfect size for me and Vitamin E brightens up my face. This tiny sample has lasted me through four applications and I have decided that I really want to buy it. The $75 price tag does not excite me so, but good skincare is worth paying for.
Because it is Friday, and you have earnt a treat, may I suggest some Pretzel m&m's if you can get your hands on them? They are the perfect combination of salty and sweet and are slightly addictive. If you can't get them then you can make your own by combining plain m&m's and pretzels in a bowl and dig in. You're welcome.
I hope you all have a fantastic Friday!
