Product Review: Facetox Mask

facetox-mask-blog-review-image

 

I wrote about the benefits of using a face mask some days, and how I look forward to treating my face to a good mask every week. So I was super excited when this Facetox Facemasks Box landed on my doorstep. I am very wary of what I put on my skin these days; my skin is quite sensitive and it usually reacts badly to many skin products I try. That was one of the reasons why I didn’t want to take on products to review on Fashion and Style Police in the early days, because I thought I would upset my skin a little too much. But in the end, I decided to go ahead with reviewing products on the blog, and I am glad I did because I have fallen in love with most of the products I have reviewed, and I have introduced them to hundreds of thousands of people, so it is a win-win.

This Facetox mask is an organic mask and it is meant to extract, pull and detoxify the skin, and it does all that and more.

I found the instructions straight forward and easy to follow. All I had to was mix the Mixed Facetox Blend (Step 01) and Organic Rose Water (Step 02) together in the plastic bowl, and apply the mixture on my cleansed face. I left it for 30 minutes, and wiped off with warm water and face towel.

PROS

  1. I love the packaging.
  2. It was very easy to apply.
  3. It didn’t sting or burn like other masks.
  4. I like the fact that the instructions were spelt out.
  5. It left my skin looking brighter, and feeling soft and smooth.
  6. My skin also felt very clean after wiping the mask off.
  7. It is great for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
  8. It is 100% Cruelty Free, 100% Organic, contains NO Parabens, Vegan Friendly and 100% Natural.

CONS

None.

 

I can’t fault this Facetox mask at all. It ticks all the boxes for me, and I definitely recommend it any one in need of some skin care TLC or. This mask is one of the products you will be needing for a pamper session. A box of 7 facemasks, like the 1 above, goes for £24.99, while 14 facemasks box goes for £43.99 (link above).

 

Have you tried this Facetox face mask before? What are your thoughts?

Sound off in the comment section below, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely weekend.

Review & Giveaway – VITASTIK Vitamin Diffusers

vitastik-picture

 

I have had my eye on VITASTIK Vitamin and Essential Oils Diffusers for a while now. I previously reviewed some VITASTIK Vitamin Vaporisers some months ago. I reviewed the Energize, Grace, Refresh, Calm and Relax flavours, and I must confess, I was blown away by how amazing they were. It is indeed the Holy-Grail of Vaping and Diffusing. So when I had another opportunity to review the new flavours, I grabbed the offer with both hands.

The science behind these VITASTIK Vitamin Diffusers is simple – a Smoke-Free, Nicotine-Free, PG-Free and Diacetyl-Free, Organic Based Product. The first and only product (at the time of writing) that can boast of all these in the market today. And made from something we use everyday, something that makes up over 60% of the human body and over 90% of plants….WATER! It is a healthy way to vape, which is how the brand got the “If you wouldn’t Eat it, then you shouldn’t Vape it !” motto from.

All “USA” made VitaStik’s contain roughly 1 recommended daily intake of Collagen, Vitamin A, B complex, C, D, E & CoQ10. 

The flavours I received are – Energize, Beauty, Relax, Calm, Breathe, Handsome, Amore, Sleep, Tonic and Flora.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. I love the packaging. It is very colourful, pretty and compact. Easy to carry around discreetly if needed.
  2. I like the variety of flavours. There is a flavour for everyone.
  3. I love the fact that this can be described as organic vaping. It sounds a lot healthier than other ecigs in the market.
  4. Most of the flavours names are different. I like different. I also like the name – VITASTIK (Vitamins in a stick).
  5. They smell fab. The names represent exactly how each flavour makes you feel.
  6. You don’t need a lighter, it lights up as soon as you drag on it.
  7. I like the fact that vitamins, therapeutic essential oils and organic flavour waters are the only ingredients in these VITASTIKS.
  8. You don’t have to deal with smoke or bad breath, it is all VAPOUR.
