I have been playing around with this DE’LANCI makeup brush kit for some days now. I won the kit in an Instagram giveaway by the brand a few weeks ago. I was very pleased about this win, I have been eyeing the makeup brush kit for sometime.

MAKEUP BRUSHES

I have many makeup brushes in my makeup bag for all kinds of makeup purposes, but I had no brush like these. I have seen these oval brushes around a lot, and I have always wanted to try them. So this DE’LANCI Makeup Brush Kit came in good time.

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.
