Description as on website
Inspired by the Youth Elixir of the Queen of Hungary in the 16th century, the Beauty Elixir has a unique and invigorating formula.
Made of 100% natural-origin ingredients and bursting with powerful plant extracts, this cult favourite reveals an instant radiance boost for the complexion, whilst tightening the pores and smoothing fine lines and make-up creases.
Famously used as a make-up setting spray backstage at fashion shows, this priming mist can be used under or over your complete make-up look, enhancing its longevity and reviving tired and dull-looking skin.
This revitalising mist gives you an immediate radiance boost.
The aromatic fragrance is both uplifting and calming for the mind and the senses.
* Smoothes fine lines and creases
* Tightens pores
* Sets make-up
* Gives a burst of radiance
The Beauty Elixir comes in beautiful white and green frosty glass bottle, this one is the beautiful pink floral summer edition bottle. I always buy the beauty elixir in mini size which makes it easy for me to carry it in my bag daily or while e travelling.
Now coming to the most important part. It has a lovely fresh and floral fragrance which is light and refreshing. Mists are perfect to refresh your skin when you are in the middle of a long day at work or if you are outdoors on a hot sunny day a spray of face mist will instantly freshen up your skin. Some like using face mists post workouts.
In my experience the beauty elixir and and other face mist out there can do only these few things, when sprayed give a burst of freshness and hydration to the skin, some can also be used to set makeup. Pore tightening claims might work for those who use this daily and for a long time. As for lessening signs of ageing I don’t feel a face mist is capable of doing that.
GLYCOLIC PEEL MASK
Description as on website
A non-drying, creamy mask, infused with glycolic acid, to restore radiance to dull skin.
Our Glycolic Peel is for anyone suffering with dull complexion and in need of an instant boost of radiance. This dual-action skin renewal treatment works like a scrub and a peel at the same time, for a renewed skin effect. Formulated with 85.7% natural origin ingredients, this luxurious and non-irritating mask provides the ultimate spa-like glow from the comfort of your own home.
* Gently exfoliates
* Activates cell renewal
The term glycolic peel might worry you about its intensity then be rest assured its quite a gentle peel as the percentage of glycolic acid in this mask isn’t that high. The mask is a cream mask that comes in a tube and squeezes out a white cream.
The main reason I got it was because it is a Glycolic Peel Mask and I an always interested in trying Glycolic acid products.
It says leave it on for 10 minutes but I usually keep it on for 20-30 minutes. If your skin is extremely sensitive then please follow the instructions. The best thing about tis mask is that it is easy to wash off. I absolutely hate using masks that don’t wash off easily. This mask can be rinsed off easily with water. It leaves the skin feeling smooth, soft and clean.
How long does the effect last, well that depends on the condition of your skin. Usually the results last for not more than a day or two. If you want to use this mask to target spots then you can use this mask 2-3 times a week. But if you are also using other peeling products or glycolic acid products, be careful not to over-exfoliate your skin which can eventually lead to irritate it
