Product Review: Dermalogica Precleanse, Special Cleansing Gel & Skin Hydrating Booster

I recently received some samples from the Dermalogical skin range and I am in a hurry to tell you all about them.


I received a precleanse sample, a skin hydrating booster sample and a special cleansing gel sample. Now the deal is to apply the precleanse on a dry face, wet your hands and massage all over the face and neck, wash off, apply the special cleansing gel on a damp face (which should be right after using the pre-cleanse), dry the face and apply the skin hydrating booster to the dry parts on the face.

Before I tell you anymore, here is what Dermalogica had to say about each product:

Dermalogica Precleanse is the professionals deep cleansing weapon. It will help achieve an ultra clean and healthy skin working with your daily cleanser. It is suitable for all skin types.

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is a soap-free, foaming gel that is designed to thoroughly remove impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance. It is suitable for all skin types.

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster is a super-saturated hydrating fluid that intensely moisturises even the driest of skin. It is suitable for dry skin types.

Now here are my thoughts:


  1. I found all three products easy to use. The instructions were very straight forward.
  2. The Precleanse and the Special Cleansing Gel deep cleaned my face without stripping off its natural oils. I had a lot of makeup on (see pictures below) and they took off every trace. These products clean the skin quickly and brilliantly.
  3. I love the smell of all three products, they all smell like a spa and God knows I am badly in need of a proper spa day.
  4. The Skin Hydrating Booster is perfect for my combination skin. It mositurises the cheeks and under my eyes which are usually the driest parts of face.
  5. All three products, left my face feeling and looking silky and smooth.

Here is the proof of how great these products are, I wiped my face with the wipe on the left after I used both the Precleanse and the Special Cleansing Gel. I wiped my face with the wipe on the right before I used both products, and I had a full make up on.


Can you see how much makeup the products took off?


  1. The 10ml and 7ml sizes are way too small and pricey at prices starting from £10.95, but I guess you get what you pay for, and these here are great products worth paying that much for.

I will recommend these products to anyone wanting a PROPER cleansing routine. Soap and water take off little or no makeup, and some makeup removers do not take off makeup easily. Most times, you would have to apply and re-apply a couple of times or use multiple wipes but this isn’t the case with the Dermalogica cleasing range. If you want, you can grab yours at Pure Beauty.

Product Review: V05 Extreme Style Rework Fibre Putty


I am a fan of VO5 products, I have had a couple of them and I think they are fab products. I have been using the VO5 Extreme Style Rework Fibre Putty, famously known as the UK No 1 Styling product for some months now and I have found it quite useful.

Here is what VO5 had to say about the product:

VO5 Extreme Style Rework Fibre Putty allows you to rework and restyle hair all day long with no stickiness, no greasiness or flaking. VO5 Extreme Rework Fibre Putty is ideal for short styles to manipulate hair in any direction with a long-lasting hold. VO5 Extreme Style Rework is a unique Fibre Putty to create the most messed up effects and funky styles with a long-lasting firm hold.

Here are my thoughts on the product.


  1. It is readily available online, in supermarkets and drug stores. I got mine from Boots.
  2. It is quite affordable. I got a 150ml tub for £4.19 and I have had it for over 3 months now.
  3. It is good value for money as most times, you only need a tiny little bit to style your hair. I know someone who has had hers for years now and she still uses it regularly.
  4. It holds brilliantly, no stickiness, makes styling so easy, and leaves long-lasting results.
  5. It gives my hair a glossy finish.

VO5 Extreme Style


  1. It does leave some residue that could leave whitish traces on your hair so be careful not to use too much, but apart from that this product is FAB.

I recommend this product 110%. It is not known as the No1 Styling Product in the UK for no reason, it is a great styling product, you should try it.

Thanks for reading and have a fab day.

Product Review: Clean and Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Daily Scrub

I have used the Clean and Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Daily Scrub for some months now.  I was breaking out seriously some months ago and I went into my local Boots store to find a daily scrub I could use to help clear out the spots. I decided to try out this facial scrub because it promised all I needed.

The formula not only removes dirt, oil and impurities, but also leaves your skin visibly brighter all day long. Gentle enough to be used everyday. Refreshing citrus fragrance.

Apply to wet face and gently massage all over face avoiding eye area. Rinse thoroughly. Also suitable for use in the evening.
