Christmas came early this year. A couple of weeks ago, a friend sent me some products to try out.
After a couple of months of being in so much stress over a recently concluded project, this was exactly what I needed! So read on to know more about these products.
LIQUID BODY LUFRA
First on the list is this wonderful Liquid Body Lufra.
The Claim: The promise was very appealing: will provide essential exfoliation, will smoothen dry, rough areas, and will improve skin tone and texture.
The Test: I’m not suere if I was able to capture it in the photos but after the first use, my skin certainly appeared smoother and more supple, thanks mainly to the finely ground walnut husks. The pores became less visible, I guess because the dead skin has been sloughed off. The sweet bubble gum scent is lovely, too! I love body scrubs, especially those of the natural variety. And for sure, this one will be a favorite.
POLISHING PEEL SKIN REFINISHER
The Claim: enjoy skin smoothing results clinically proven to be equivalent to a professional microdermabrasion session without ever leaving home.
The Test: The skin finisher has pumpkin enzymes that help dissolve dead and damaged cells, making it a cheaper (and better?) treatment than microdermabrasion. I’ve never had a microdermabrasion so I can’t exactly compare the two. I do find it easy to use this product: just dab and spread the product on clean face and neck, leave it for a couple of minutes or until you feel a tightening on your skin (do not let it dry completely, though), then using your fingertips, gently massage face in a circular motion. The dried layer will carry away your dead skin cells, leaving your skin looking and feeling polished.
I can tell you that the product stays true to its promise. After use, my skin indeed felt smoother and tighter. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s for sensitive or acne-prone skin as it tends to leave the skin a bit dry. I just dab on a little moisturizer after each use to keep my skin hydrated. Would I recommend it? Of course!
NU COLOUR ADVANCED TINTED MOISTURIZER
The Claim: Now, here’s my favorite… the advanced tinted moisturizer. At first, I was a bit confused as to what exactly this product was. I’ve been looking for a day moisturizer with sun protection. So I thought this was perfect under my liquid foundation. But upon application, I realized that it was actually make-up. My friend confirmed that it’s a DD or Daily Defense cream, foundation, moisturizer and anti-aging cream rolled into one. Isn’t that fabulous?!
The Test: What I love about this product is that it’s very light so it doesn’t feel sticky at the end of the day. I also love that it’s a foundation so it covers spots and blemishes effectively. Finally, you don’t have to slather a lot on because a little (just a couple of pea-sized drops) goes a long way. Should you get a bottle for yourself? Yes, please.
Overall, I was quite happy with the three products. But if there’s a stand out, I have to say it’s the tinted moisturizer.
How about you? Have you tried any of these products? What did you think about them? Please tell us about it on the comments section below.
Food for Thought:
I’m a big believer in that if you focus on good skin care, you really won’t need a lot of makeup.
