Skincare On Trial | Part 1


Recently I have been trying a range of new skincare products as I wanted to change up my skincare routine. I'm lucky in that I have never really had many problems with my skin but I did notice spots appearing and my skin just generally looked dull. Because of this, I went on a hurt to find some new skincare items to try and in the process ended up trying ten new products so I thought a 'skincare on trial' post was needed. I was originally going to make this a huge post but ended up splitting it into two parts so enjoy part one...


Super Facialist By Una Brennan 'Intense Moisture Mask' - I noticed my skin was dry in some areas so I picked up this mask in the hope that it would inject some moisture into my skin. I have to say I was not disappointed by this product as it hydrated the skin leaving it smooth and soft. I will add that it has a strong rose scent which caused my skin to tingle slightly but nothing severe.

NSPA Hot Cloth Polish - When I was in ASDA I came across the NSPA skcinare range and decided to pick this hot cloth polish up which contains a thick creamy cleanser that I used as a second cleanser. Unfortunately my skin didn't agree with the product as it left the skin feeling tight and oily. It may be because it contains essential oil or the sensitively of my skin but I have since stopped using it.


NSPA Deep Cleansing Face Wash - Another NSPA product which I used in the morning to clean the skin was this wash. However after I brought this wash I noticed it was a foam and left the skin feeling dry. Furthermore after a week my skin became dry and stripped. My skin then became sensitive and dry and I had to stop using it after that and it took weeks for my skin to recover. I wouldn't recommend this product unfortunately.

Pro Formula Radiance Melting Gel Cleanser Gel - One product that I had been meaning to try for a while is this melting gel cleanser which I brought from Tesco. For my dry and sensitive skin, I found this cleansing gel too drying and not hydrating enough. However if you have combination or oily skin you may found this cleanser more in your street. However for me, it didn't really work.

NSPA Youthful Eye Cream - The last product for part one is an eye cream. I don't normally use an eye cream because I have never really found one that was right for my skin. This youthful eye cream is not the one for me as it caused irritation around my eyes but I did find it hydrating which is a positive thing to note.

I know that this post might seem like a slightly negative one about skincare products but the second post contains items which I had a more positive experience with so don't forget to check back for part two of 'skincare on trial'. I would also like to mention that the condition of my skin is different from everyone else's and reacts differently when compared with others.

What skincare products that you been trying recently?

  4. I've tried the Una Brennan mask before which was lovely but not amazing! I'm eager to try NSpa as a brand as I haven't really heard of it before x

  6. Eeeee, sounds like NSpa may not be the brand for you! Happy to hear you're loving the rose mask - I adore the Super Facialist brand! I've loved everything I've tried. They have a rose night cream that is just divine!
