If I had to choose one of my all time favourite skincare products that I love treating myself to, it’d be a face mask. I love nothing more than smothering the product all over my face, and kicking back doing absolutely nothing whilst I wait for my face to go stiff to the point it’s difficult to convey any facial expression to anyone who is lucky enough to see me in all my face mask glory in the house. Lush face masks are my usual go to, with the benefits I look for in such a product having to revolve around reducing redness, in addition to making my skin feel smooth as can be. After being approached by Lovegrove Essentials with the opportunity to try out their skincare essentials, inside I was jumping for joy at the thought of trying out new products for my skin. After a few back and forth messages detailing my skin type, problem areas and the type of products I tend to use, Lovegrove Essentials were eager for me to try out their brand new Clean and Natural Kit, so I agreed without hesitation at the thought of discovering products to add to my collection.
Coming in a lovely little lavender bag, the Clean and Natural Kit contains Lovegrove Essentials bestselling cleansing balm, alongside their newly launched aromatic face mask, two cloths (one for removing the mask with, and the other for removing the cleansing balm) and a brush for gently applying the mask with. Starting with the cleansing balm, you simply put a dollop in between your hands and rub them together until it turns into an oily liquid. Once it liquifies you massage it into your face and instantly feel its benefits. Not only does a spot of this take off your make-up, saving you from using wipes, but it also helps balance the oils on your skin, which for me is a major plus as I suffer from extremely oily skin.
The cleansing balm followed by the aromatic face mask will leave your skin feeling clean and natural, just like the title of this kit. As soon as you open the little pot, you are met with the most amazing, and soothing smell from the mask, and that’s one of the things both my mum and I pointed out. The smell of the aromatic face mask reminds me of all the lovely oils you’re greeted with when in a spa treatment room, and you instantly feel relaxed (for half the price of a spa too). Another special feature of the kit that I absolutely loved was the brush that you paint the mask on with, meaning you don’t end up with half the product on your fingers and you aren’t rubbing your fingers into your skin. A great tip, which the lovely Hayley behind Lovegrove Essentials suggested if you’re ever visiting a spa is to put the mask on before heading into the sauna as the heat from the sauna will open your pores and can allow impurities to escape from the skin. I done this recently and definitely felt the benefits of the mask to a much larger degree. This is a face mask I could see myself using on a more regular basis as I’ve never felt my skin as soft as it is after I take the aromatic face mask off. With both my mum and I using the set, the mask has sadly came to an end..but I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase this kit as I can really see a difference in the texture of my skin.
Costing £24.95 this is a great little kit and with it not taking up much room, could be the perfect travel companion for taking care of your skin while you’re travelling or if you’re constantly on the go and find it difficult to spare a moment to treat yourself. Next on my list to try out is their moisture cream and the healing touch serum as I’ve heard the serum is really good for scarring. What are your go to skincare products?
