Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner – The Best Toner for Sensitive Skin?!

Sukin_TonerI love Sukin products as a whole and this one was definitely not a disappointment. I’ve actually just finished up using this bottle. Sukin is a great brand for sensitive skin types because they are very conscious about not using potentially irritating ingredients. This toner is a very light formula and is especially great if your skin is at all irritated. I’ve been using this after chemically exfoliating my skin and it’s really helped to prevent my skin from feeling at all dry.

You can spritz this directly onto the face if you prefer, or onto a cotton pad as I do. It is quite a light mist so if you apply it directly to the face make sure to fully cover your whole face.

Because this is so light and non-irritant it also makes a great summer face mist. This is very gentle on sunburnt skin. My skin gets super sensitive and sometimes irritated by even my usual gentle products but this toner was just great.

Definitely recommend this and while I like to keep trying out new products I think I may have to get a little bottle of this to add to my skincare essentials.

Review: The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil

RWCThis Rice Water Cleanser is really good at taking off your makeup in the evening and removing other oil-based products like sun cream. You just rub it into your skin and then wash it off with warm water. As an oil cleanser this really takes away the impurities sitting on your skin. I use this in the evening as I like to double cleanse at the end of the day. This is a nice light oil, though I do like to follow it up with a water-based cleanser like a gentle foam one to make sure there’s no residue left on my skin.

Light oil cleansers are actually great for oily skin as the oils work in tandem rather than just making your skin more oily. This product really freshens up my face and I would definitely recommend it, especially if you have oily skin because it’s so light.

You only need a tiny amount to cover your whole face so this product should last you a while. You can use this in the morning as well if you want but as I have oily skin I like to just use a gentle gel cleanser in the morning.

I really like this product and while when I eventually finish it I’d like to try out some different light oil cleansers I would definitely repurchase this.

Review: My Beauty Diary White Lily Brightening Essence Mask

MBD_White_Lily_MaskI’ve used a lot of different MBD sheet masks before and I’ve liked all them so far, this one included. MBD is a great Taiwanese brand that is pretty much credited with starting off the whole sheet mask craze.

This sheet mask comes with lots of essence so there’s plenty left over to put on your skin (it’s especially good to put it on your neck) or to save for a later time to give it a little boost. While you should seal the packet if you don’t want to use it pretty soon I have found that if you use this mask in the evening then put on the essence in the morning you can leave out sealing the packet if you can’t be bothered or simply forget.

MBD masks do tend to be quite small and they are often very thin so you have to be careful not to rip them. Before opening the little packet it’s best to check if the mask is in the way of where you’re trying to tear the packet open as you can accidentally tear the mask from this. But they’re also really light on your skin and very gentle. This particular mask sheet contains Multi-silk, which is super soft on your skin. After using this mask I really feel like my skin has a noticeable dewy glow. It’s a really nice mask for brightening your skin and since you can buy it in a set it’s pretty cheap too.
