I went a bit crazy shopping online for skincare recently.
Now all I wanted was a simple packet of face wipes and I was looking at all the brands and deciding which one was best for my skin when I got a bit side tracked and bought a lot more than I was originally supposed to.
This isn’t normal person crazy. Normal person crazy would be that multiple boxes came through the post and filled the hall with little to none moving space in-between. When I go crazy it means that instead of buying one thing I buy 5 things with an additional two things come through as added extras in one big box.
However, I have never used any of these products before and I am very excited to try them so I thought that I would give you guys a little first impressions of these products. Side note – Incase I haven’t made it clear in the title this is about skincare. Now these all have slightly confusing names and I have honestly no clue what half of them are and I am so glad right now that I don’t have to say the names to anyone right now because I can’t pronounce it correctly for the life of me. Also, I would like to say that I had perfect natural lighting the day before this came in the post and now it has gone all rainy again so the pictures aren’t that great which is upsetting but oh well.
This is all from the brand B is for beautiful and it is cruelty-free, paraben free and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans which I think is nice. The first item I brought is the skin wipes I wanted to buy in the beginning. Can I make it clear that I ordered three packets of these so if I don’t like them I have a lot of spare wipes.
This is from the B. Pure range and they are the sensitive micellar cleansing wipes. The wipes don’t really have a fragrance and are not dry which is always good. They are textured which adds an exciting visual element. They are smooth on the face and my face feels pretty clean. I get a really oily forehead and this wipe washes away all the oils and left it feels soft and smooth like the rest of my face. That is a really big thing for me. If my forehead is still oily then I feel like it hasn’t cleaned my face at all and it was just pointless so if these wipes had failed that test I would have had to have gone on my search for some more wipes again because they wouldn’t have cut it for me. So, my first impressions of these face wipes is they nice to touch, don’t leave any trace of my oily forehead behind and have not caused my sensitive skin to inflame. Most products fail at the last one and I was really impressed. I will be certainly using these again.
The next product is the B. Revealed glycolic cleansing peel. I had no clue what this was and it sounded cool so I decided I would give it a go.
The “definition” like thing on the back says
“B. Revealed is a dual action cleansing polisher. It gently softens and buffs away dull, dead skin cells for a smooth, youthful-looking complexion”.
I read the directions on the back because if I didn’t I would be likely to mess up. Inside the box, you have a tube with the actual product inside and a muslin cloth. Now when I went to put this product on my face firstly, it has a slight fragrance which I find to be pleasant and secondly this product is a very thick cream. The instructions did not specify how much of this product I should be applying on my face so I did a moderately thin layer all over my face and neck and then set a timer for the 3 minutes specified. Depending on how busy your evening/morning/life in general is you may not have time to use this product. This is something you should use 2-3 times a week. After the 3 minutes was up I dampened the muslin cloth and washed it off. This was slightly challenging as when I put it on the cream was white and it turned clear 3 minutes after and that made it hard to know where it was in order for me to rinse it off. However, I think I succeeded in the end and I have to say that my skin is so smooth and soft it is unreal. This also made my forehead extremely matte and non-glossy and all traces of oil have been swept away showing my skin as it is naturally supposed to be and I for one am extremely impressed by this brand so far.
The last product I spontaneously brought is the B. Refreshed essence lotion. From what I understand of all the words on the bottle this replenishes your skin with 12-hour intense moisture. Although we are now technically in spring the air is still really cold where I live and I get dry skin everywhere which is really annoying as you can’t use concealer over it without it looking weird and that just leads to further complications which I am not prepared to deal with. So, having zilch dry skin would be nice so I bought this product to give it a go and see if it can help. This is a clear liquid and it is for all skin types. Just saying that I really like the packaging on all of these products. The design is unique and sophisticated which draws people’s attention. It also doesn’t vary from product to product it is that set design which I also like. It smells like my grandma’s house and I’m not sure why. However, this smell is pleasant and I quite enjoy it. At first, when I put a few drops in my hand I thought it was an oil type thing and panicked. I hate the feel of oil on my skin and I know that it can be good as a moisturiser and such but I really hate the feel of it against my skin so I almost threw the product out right there and then. But it turns out that it isn’t an oil and all is well so I put it on my face and gently patted it in like the instructions told me to. Unlike most things that are supposed to moisturise this did not feel weird against my forehead and did not produce any excess oil that I would have to deal with. My skin still feels really soft and I can’t tell much of a difference between before I put it on and after. However, with extended use, I feel like I will see some more prominent results.
All in all, I have been really impressed with these products that I have brought and will be definitely looking at some of their other ranges and perhaps purchase them as well. If you have used any products from this brand before I would like to hear your opinion of them so, please comment it below.
