Skincare Series: My Current Cleansers!

Like any other beauty junkie out there, I use quite a few different skincare products! All of which are designed to target my different skin issues, so I generally use them on a rotating basis or layer them on. I have previously done a video on my skincare routine but it has changed somewhat in the past few months. So this time, I wanted to do a written post on all the products I use but it would be mega long so I thought I’d break it up into a series focusing on one type of product each week.

Korres Wild Rose Instant Brightening Mask!

Face masks are a girl’s best friend when it comes to skincare. They’re great for deep cleansing and to help to reduce oil, hydrate or give your skin an extra boost of moisture, radiance or just for maintenance.

The Korres Wild Rose Mask is one of those masks that helps give your skin an oomph of radiance. After you apply it, you can immediately see brighter, fresher skin. I use this mask probably once a week and while I can’t say the brightening properties last long. I do love the noticeable illuminating glow it gives after you use it. It’s definitely a great mask to pop on before a special occasion or event as it will help to give you beautiful photo ready skin!

The consistency of the this mask is lovely. So smooth and creamy, and it feels light on. I also love the faint rose scent the mask has, it’s quite soothing. It doesn’t dry out on the skin like some other masks I’ve tried, and once washed off, my face feels hydrated and clean. You only need a small amount for the whole face too, apply it with your fingers or with a soft brush – I use the EcoTools Foundation brush. The Korres Wild Rose Mask contains power ingredients such as wild rose oil, a natural source of vitamin C, which helps to promote cell renewal and repair lines/wrinkles, as well as avocado butter, shea butter and other herbal extracts which all help to lighten skin discolourations and brighten the skin. LOVE!

The Korres Wild Rose Mask is available now at Mecca Maxima and all Kit Cosmetics stores/counters.


Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads!

Being a beauty addict blogger, I often try a lot of different skincare products in my quest for perfect skin. Some I like, some I hate, some I’m indifferent about, but today, I want to talk about something I love. My newest holy grail skincare product – the Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads, and they are AMAZING!

Now you’re probably thinking… “Jess, I’ve seen your FOTD pics. You don’t have wrinkles”. Well yes, that’s true (thank god!) but as they always say prevention is better than a cure, so I was all over these when I first heard about them. The Peel Pads’ fabulous combination of power ingredients gently exfoliate the skin, stimulate cell turnover, and protect skin from environmental damage. So not only do they target wrinkles, they are super effective at improving the texture of your skin, helping to even out skintone and tighten pores.

The pads are designed to act as a gentle face peel, suitable for everyday use depending on your skin type. They are really easy to use too. After removing your make up at night, just grab one of the pads, wipe it all over your face avoiding the eye area, leave on for 1-3mins, and then rinse off! It will feel slightly tingly when applied, but I don’t find it at all uncomfortable or irritating. Each container contains 60 pads so it’s good for approximately 2 months if used on a daily basis. I have oily/combination skin and at first I used the Peel Pads everyday, but now I’ve found that I only need to use them around 3-4 times a week. 

Since I started using these Peel Pads over 3 months ago, I have noticed a wonderful improvement in my skin’s texture, skintone and overall appearance. My skin used to be quite rough with small bumps but I hardly have any now, and my pores have significantly reduced in size especially around my nose area. I get less breakouts, and dark spots/scarring left from previous breakouts have also faded faster too. I love the Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads and have since purchased a new container, they have definitely become an integral part of my skincare routine!

Now I’m very eager to try the rest of his skincare range! Have you tried anything from Peter Thomas Roth?

Available now at all Kit Cosmetics counters/stores and online, RRP AU$56.95.

Awesome!

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to have my quickie fix at the Kit Cosmetics Chapel St store by the fabulous Damian. I opted for the ‘The Breakout Star’ treatment as I have oily/combination skin, which is quite prone to breakouts along my chin and on my nose area. Damian started off by asking me about my skin concerns and gave me a great low down on the SUPER range. Then it was down to business and these are the amazing products he used:

– Sweet Clean Face and Eye Cleanser with Acai – Detox Elixir Hydrating Mist with Watercress– 3 Minute Facial Intensive Treatment with Ginger– Acne Solution Belmish Treatment with Green Apple
