Nuxe PamperHamper - Must Haves For Spring!

Evening everyone! I hope you have all enjoyed the beautiful sunshine this weekend! Speaking of sunshine......we know Spring is just round the corner and i wanted to share a few Nuxe products that would be perfect to use.

Huile Prodigieuse 
Who doesn't want a beautiful golden glow?! Imagine looking like JLO all year round!

Reve De Miel Facial Cleansing and Make-up Removing Gel
A soap free cleansing gel? Yes please! We all need a cleanser that removes every bit of dirt and makeup!

Reve De Miel Lip Moisturizing Stick 
I love the Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm, but it's a bit bulky for when you're out and about! This handy little lip balm is perfect for keeping in your pocket for soft, supple lips.

Nuxe Body Fondant Body Scrub
As the weather gets warmer, a lot of skin is going to be on show! This scrub is ideal for getting rid of any signs of winter, but fab for prepping the body for those girlies who love to fake tan.

Reve De Miel Ultra-Comfortable Foot Cream 
Spring means getting the sandals out and we all know that the feet have to look as pretty as possible!

Aroma-Perfection Anti-Imperfection Care
I know i like to wear as little makeup as possible when it gets warmer, so this cream is fab for evening out skin tone!

What are your Nuxe picks?

REN Skincare Haul

You may have noticed that i have had a slight REN skincare obsession recently, and when my ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser finished, i used it as an excuse to pick up a few more products!

I'm not going to ramble on about the ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser but after finishing my previous bottle, i knew immediately i would repurchase! It's one of those cleansers that has impacted my skin in a positive way and if you want to read a more in depth review, it can be found HERE.

Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser is a new product to the range, and i adore using a hot cloth cleanser at the end of the day, removing all the dirt, makeup and grime from the daily grind. It also feels as if you are pampering your skin too!

I thought i would add the Micro Polish Cleanser to my shopping basket because i have read it's an amazing product to use before the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask (full review here). Even though it is described as a cleanser, it is more of a scrub to be used a couple of times a week, to slough away dead skin cells. My MAC Volcanic Ash scrub is nearly finishing, and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try a new face scrub.

Thankfully, i received a couple of samples from REN, which was more of the Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, Micro Polish Cleanser, as well as Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil. I think i will keep hold of these for when i'm travelling! 

I will keep you all updated on how these products are going and may either do a blog post or an updated skin care video on my channel.

Have you tried any REN Skincare?

REN ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser Review

After finishing the L'Oreal Skin Perfecton Cleanser, i needed something that would HELP my skin and not break me out or block my pores. When the REN ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser landed on my doorstep, i knew it could be the answer!

I have used a clay based cleanser before, which was the Dermal Clay Cleanser from Dermalogica but found it too drying on my combination skin, so i was a bit hesitant knowing that this was a clay cleanser too. Nevertheless.......this cleanser is completely and utterly different from what i have used before.

Now this cleanser does not foam up and i know many oily girls who love a foaming face wash, I'm one of them! Foaming face washes can actually strip your skin of the natural oils, making you more oily and your skin alkaline, which is a breeding ground for bacteria....hello spots!

This cleanser is not one that will remove your makeup, so ensure you have pre-cleansed before using this. I tend to use this as my morning cleanser and sometimes i use it with my clarisonic at night for a more deeper cleanse.

The clay cleanser is no way as thick as i had previously thought and massages really well onto the skin. When i have a bit more time, i tend to leave the cleanser on my face for a couple of minutes, as it sort of acts like a gentle mask. I use warm water to rinse, because cold water doesn't really remove it the best.

So, what about the results? I have been using it since the middle of November and hands down this is the best cleanser i have ever tried! It is the perfect product to use on blemished prone skin and somehow it manages to not only get rid of those litte nasties but prevents any future breakouts. Yes, i do still get the odd hormonal breakout, but it is nothing like what i was getting before. Additionally the clear packaging makes it easy to see when the product has almost finished.

I am now on my second bottle of this baby and this product is a winner for me! YAY! The REN ClearCalm 3 Clay Cleanser is £18 and can be purchased HERE.
