Firstly, how pretty and pink is the Clear Complexion Range from essano! I must say pink is my favourite colour, so this range definitely caught my eye. 

We all know our skin needs the best loving care it can get, so it can shine with confidence. The beautiful team over at essano have launched a refreshing new addition to their skin care range and we’re excited to be giving-away this beautiful set from the Clear Complexion Range by essano to one lucky Beauty Lust NZ fan. Yes, please!

For years we have been trying to find the right skin care that we like and what our skin agree’s with, and I must say it is definitely not as easy as it sounds.

Essano products are made here right in New Zealand, which I absolutely love and there’s nothing better then using your own backyard and knowing where all the ingredients come from. The Clear complexion range is cruelty free and also has none of the bad stuff!

Lets talk about the range:  Essano Clear complexion Purifying Gel Cleanser (100ml) – $15.00NZ 

Lets get rid of those unnecessary pores and lets get our PH levels balanced!

The clear complexion cleanser is a gentle soap-free cleansing gel which contains soft rosemary leaf notes combined with BioDTox leaving your skin soft and smooth. It is scientifically formulated to control oil levels, detox skin cells and un-clog pores. Not to mention that it has certified organic ingredients, now that what we are talking about!

Essano Clear complexion Oil Control Moisturiser (75ml) – $20.00NZ

Everyone loves a good moisturiser especially after jumping out of the shower or before bed. I don’t know about you but I love having a natural everyday look, not too shiny and not too oily and I must say, this moisturiser ticks all the boxes.

It is a light absorbing lotion, leaving your skin shine-free finish all day long and also controls the oil balance. It is always great to apply a nice oil control moisturiser underneath your foundation before applying. I use the M.A.C Cosmetics Studio Fix foundation and I found that this moisturiser worked really well underneath and sat nicely with the foundation.

Essano Clear complexion Mist Toner (120ml) – $13.00NZ

How good does it feel to hydrate your face with a mist spray! It is one of my favourite things to do in the morning and night. My face just feels so refreshed and relaxed afterwards. The essano mist toner is certified organic, it is powered by BioDTox, just like their purifying gel cleanser. It provides essential hydration to deliver optimal skin health, all gorgeously naturally.

Essano Clear complexion Detoxifying Serum (30ml) – $30.00NZ 

Before I tried the detoxifying serum, I wasn’t one to use face serum all the time, on the odd occasion I would but since trying the one from essano’s clear complexion range, I don’t think I could go back to not using one! It is a sophisticated Probiotic-based serum with has been developed to clear those unwanted pores, control sebum production and balance out your beautiful skin.

Essano mentions on all of their products, that all ingredients are formulated to do their magic naturally. It is such a good feeling knowing your skin is getting the best and it’s clinically proven.

Essano Clear Complexion Blemish Gel (15ml) – $16.00NZ

I think we can all put our hands up to getting those unwanted blemishes, especially before something important, knowing our luck but there is no need to stress anymore! Essano has a rapid action Blemish Gel that is designed to clear away bacteria that causes pimples. It is proven to improve the appearance of blemishes and to level out our oils.

Want to look in the mirror and have beautiful glowing skin everyday, but don’t want to pay the earth to get it? 

Our friends over at Dermalogica are here to save the day and “unmasque” your healthiest skin!

Smooth, hydrate, restore and brighten up your life with the limited-edition Ultimate Masque Kit from Dermalogica worth NZ$62.00 (so that’s FOUR Dermalogica masques for that price! Yaaaaas queen).

Like all Dermalogica products, all four of these magical masques are vegan friendly, cruelty free, paraben free, gluten free and no artificial colours or fragrances. This refreshing set can be used all at once or separately when you desire. Just simply apply Dermalogica’s best-selling masques onto any problem areas.

How cool it even came with a professional mask brush to apply the masques!

So, what did we think of the Dermalogica Ultimate Masque Kit?

We must say, this set is one of the best sets Dermalogica have brought out for us to use at home!

It comes with four different masques, see what we had to say about each of them below.

Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant

The Gentle Cream Exfoliant had a tingling sensation on the nose, definitely felt like the product was working. It was very easy to apply and had a lovely refreshing smell, cucumber, chamomile, lemon and lavender were present. You can apply this one on your forehead and the bridge of your nose to target dullness and texture.

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque

The Skin Hydrating Masque felt so smooth on my skin, like a baby’s bottom! It had a calm cooling feeling and it wasn’t very creamy, more like a clear gel and my skin was definitely soaking in all the goodness. This one is to be applied on your cheeks to reduce dryness and dehydration,

Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque

The Multivitamin Recovery Masque was a orange colour and more a cream texture, gentle on the skin and was quite thick which made it easy to spread across the chin. This also had a strong aroma of chamomile which reminded me of my Sleep tea by Healtheries. You can apply to your chin and lower cheek to fight skin ageing. We have featured the Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask on Beauty Lust before if you would like to read more on this one.

Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift

My favourite masque out of all four would have been the Stress Positive Eye Lift. It had such a strong fresh sent and glide on under the eyes like a breeze. I always suffer from black bags under my eyes so being able to apply something to help with this was great. It felt very hydrating and refreshing.apply underneath the eye from the corner outwards to brighten up those dark circles underneath the eye.

Overall, we thought the Dermalogica Ultimate Masque Kit has so many rich benefits for any type of skin. Apply at night time after your usual skin care routine or early morning before your day starts, leave the masque on for 15min. Removing the masque is super easy using a warm damp face cloth, wipe over the face and then rinse with warm water to remove any excess masque, and voila you’re done!

We also love how the kit comes in a travel size, which means you take them any where.

If you’re a fan of all things rose gold, then by golly are you going to fall head-over-heels in love with the new Remington Rose Luxury range. 

I’ve was kindly sent the new Remington Rose Luxury Hair Dryer Pack and Rose Luxury Straightener Pack to review just before Christmas, and weeks later I still get a tingle of excitement every time I go to dry or straighten my hair because they are just sahhhh prettyyyyyy and I love using them.

Just look at them – have you ever seen a more beautiful straightener and hair dryer set?

Each set also comes with a specifically tailored (and matching rose gold) hairbrush for desired styling, which is super handy.

I reckon that I’d be Remington’s #1 fan when it comes to their blow-wave hairbrushes, they are honestly the best ones I’ve ever used! If you love a good home blow wave, you should definitely give one of these hairbrushes a try ladies.

Review: Remington Rose Luxury Hair Dryer Pack ($NZ129.99)

First up we’ve got the Remington Rose Luxury Hair Dryer Pack which would have to be one of the most lightweight hair dryers from Remington that I’ve ever owned.

If you have super long mermaid hair like me, then I bet you’ll appreciate a lightweight hair dryer as it can get quuuuuuite tedious standing in the bathroom for what feels like an eternity drying your wet hair after a shower. It’s also equipped with a professional long-life AC motor, allowing you to achieve fast drying & salon results.

This newly launched dryer features a luxury ceramic coated grille that ensures even heat distribution and ionic conditioning technology providing 90* more ions for less frizz, meaning that your hair will be sleeker than ever! Packaged along with the perfect drying accessory (as mentioned above), a rounded blow wave hairbrush to create those beautifully bouncy styles we all lust for.

Make sure you read our review on the Remington Pearl Shine Hair Dryer to see a comparison between the two.

Remington Rose Luxury Straightener Pack ($NZ129.99)

If I had to pick a favourite out of the two, it would be the Remington Rose Luxury Straightener Pack. This baby is super smooth and quick to do the job!

It’s newly designed and innovative ceramic coated plates claim to be “2x smoother and 2x longer lasting” in comparison to your average straightener. After using this puppy for nearly 3 weeks, I can definitely say that it’s got more “get up and go” than my old trusty GHD (but in saying that, my GHD is also like 7 years old now). But yeah, it feels effortless to use and hardly rips any of my hair out, which is always a win!

There’s no need to wait around for your straightener to heat up anymore, because the Rose Luxury Straightener has a quick turbo boost function, allowing you to get the top temperature faster! Not forgetting the tools needed to create sleek and straight tresses, the Rose Luxury Straightener is packaged with a complimentary colour matched vent brush to finish off your gorgeous look.

Have you tried the new Remington Rose Luxury range? What did you think? 

P.s make sure you check out all my other Remington Hair Dryer and Straightener pack reviews.

Looking to use Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel to get that perfect wedding day glow?

We asked two lovely bride-to-be’s to review Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel ahead of their special days, and here’s what they had to say.

Before we delve straight into the bridal reviews, it’s important that you have a bit of product background information on Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel.

Why should I use Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel?

Cell turnover slows down as we age, resulting in longer recovery time as well as dullness, fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. To help combat this, the magical team at Dermalogica has formulated the Rapid Reveal Peel, a high-strength, at-home peel that kick-starts skin renewal to reveal brighter, smoother, healthier skin.

This home peel is clinically proven to enhance radiance and visibly reduce fine lines.

Accelerated skin renewal speeds up the removal of dull cells on the surface of the skin to replicate that of a younger skin. This enhanced cell renewal helps make up for what the skin naturally loses over time.

What are the key ingredients/benefits?

This convenient, at-home peel is the highest-strength retail exfoliant offered by the skin health experts at Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute:

A unique complex of phytoactive Alpha Hydroxy Acids including Lactic Acid and Rice Bran extract to help reveal new, firmer skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by removing dulling surface debris without causing dehydration.

Fermented plant enzymes help even skin tone by resurfacing the skin and accelerating cell turnover.

Australian Caviar Lime Extract smoothes and brightens for a more radiant complexion.

How does it work?

It is recommended that you use Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel in one of two ways.

You can either do the kick-start phase, using one a night for three consecutive nights, or you can use one a week for three weeks. You can expect to see visible results!

Massage over your face continuously while it activates for 3-7 minutes. You may experience slight tingling or warming. Thoroughly rinse off with cold water or wipe off with a cold, damp towel. Recommended for evening use.

What did the two brides think of Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel?

We asked two lovely bride-to-be’s (Ashley and Georgia, or “A” and “G” as per below) a series of three questions. See what they had to say below!

Q 1: How did it feel on your skin when you applied it? Was is stingy? Did it dry your skin?

A: It was super easy to apply to the face (cool smooth gel) and it didn’t take long for the skin to heat up and feel a little tingly! Didn’t really dry my face and make it tight like a mask. It went on pretty nicely!

G: Once applied, it only takes a minute or so before it gets tingly and warm, but not overly so. Not uncomfortable, but definitely noticeable. It comes out as a clear gel, and goes on easily and smoothly – for such a small tube it goes pretty far also! The only thing I didn’t like so much was that it feels a bit sticky while its on your skin, but seeing as its a wash-off product this doesn’t really matter to much.

Q 2: What difference did you notice after the first use? And what difference after using all three?

A: I used mine on Friday night because I had to go out Saturday, and when I woke up in the morning I definitely noticed my face looked brighter, so I went make-up less all day because I was happy with my skin tone! I’m looking forward to using the others!!

G: After washing off the first application, my skin was so smooth and soft! I have very sensitive skin, and was unsure how my skin would respond to a product like this, but I’ve had no issues at all. The redness I had before applying the mask has disappeared, and my skin is left bright and clear.

Q 3: Would you recommend for other brides? How soon before the wedding would you use it?

A: I would definitely recommend for other brides. It’s so simple, easy and quick to use. It’s not as burny as other peels I’ve used, so doesn’t feel as harsh on the skin. I noticed an overnight difference, so its definitely something to use the night before the wedding. My makeup was ON POINT the day after using it cause my skin was so light and bright!

G: I would definitely recommend this to other brides, it gives you the glowing look you want on your special day. I would recommend they use the last tube possibly the day before the wedding – to allow for settled skin to apply any make up and/or sunscreen on. Also, the tingly warm sensation makes this mask feel alot more special on your face – and you want something a little extra special for your big day

How much does it cost?

Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel costs around $159.00 NZD, and includes10 individually packaged 3 ml peels and travel bag. It’s available to purchase online, and at all authorised Dermalogica stockists.

Do we recommend this product?

We highly recommend using Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel to help get your skin in top-shape pre-event. It’s absolutely perfect for the bride-to-be, to help her skin be in tip-top shape for her special day, or even to take on holiday as a weekly exfoliant, saving space for shopping rather than bulky skincare.

COMPETITION TIME:

We have a set of Dermalogica Rapid Reveal Peels worth $159 (10 x 3ml home-peels) to giveaway, just in time for Christmas! In order to win, just be following @beautylustnz on Instagram. It’s that easy.

Winner will be drawn December 19th, 2018 and will be contacted via Instagram direct message. New Zealand and Australia entries only. No correspondence will be entered into.

If you’re looking for a skincare brand that provides beauty clinic results at home, then you need to check out Caci Clinic’s Skinsmiths skincare range ASAP. 

I was introduced to the Skinsmiths brand for the first time during my monthly Microdermabrasion treatment at my local Caci Clinic in Orewa. I was talking to one of the beauticians about my pore sizes, and how picking at my problem skin when I was younger has now resulted in some hideous scarring around my chin and pore-strip zone area.

She began suggesting a few different Caci Clinic treatment options that could help with pore size reduction, and she then proceeded to ask me which skincare brands I use at home.

I told her that being a beauty blogger gives me the opportunity to try all sorts of different skincare brands and products, so my daily at-home skincare routine generally consists of an array of different products! I’m always trying new products for the blog, which means my skin really lacks product consistency – so she recommended I give Skinsmiths a go, and consistently stick it out for a while to see if there were any results.

First impressions of the Skinsmiths range?

I was gifted my first set of the range to try it out, which I’ve been using twice daily for about 4-5 solid weeks now.

During the first couple of uses I began to wonder if the range was too soft for me. You see, I am used to using harsher products that give the feeling of “instant results” due to the drying feeling they provide. But in reality all those products are doing is stripping my skin of essential oils and leave it dry, which I’ve since learned is in no way good for your skin!

So I decided to stick it out for a solid 1-2 weeks before making up my mind about it.

Sure enough, after the first week or so I began to see a noticeable difference in my skin. It looked and felt much more hydrated and plumped-up than usual, which was nice to see in comparison to it’s usual dry and red patchiness.

I also noticed a-lot of the redness around my chin and pore-zone areas had started to fade away, and my skin colour was beginning to even out!

Review: Skinsmiths Eye Concentrate

I really liked the Skinsmiths Eye Concentrate and could see a massive improvement in the bags and fine lines around my eyes! It’s definitely my go-to eye cream product at the moment, and is the most effective one I’ve come across so far.

The skin around my eyes appeared to be much more firm and hydrated.

Review: Skinsmiths Daily Moisturiser

The Skinsmiths Daily Moisturiser was also one of the stand-out favourites for me, it’s super light-weight and non-greasy but does a superb job of hydrating the skin.

It’s formulated with shea butter, olive oil and avocado oil, and is best used during the day in combination with a SPF 15 sunscreen for skin protection.

Review: Skinsmiths Cream Cleanser

The Skinsmiths Cream Cleanser took a wee while to grow on me, mainly due to the fact that I’m used to using the harsher skincare brands/products that give that “drying” feeling after using them.

After adjusting and getting used to the fact that having a more “hydrated” feeling was actually better for my skin, I started to to enjoy using it more and more.

The best part about this cleanser is that it’s also strong enough to remove makeup, as-well as working away at impurities and maintaining the right moisture balance for your skin.

Review: Skinsmiths Derma Roller

The Skinsmiths Derma Roller would have to by far be my absolute favourite product from the range. I use it 1-2 times a week, and it makes my skin feel SO smooth after using it.

It helps to reduce fine lines and improve scarring, which is exactly what I need to reduce my pore sizes and scarring.

Derma-rolling helps the absorption of active ingredients and stimulates collagen.

It’s available in 0.3mm and 0.5mm needle lengths.

Review: Skinsmiths Sanitising Spray

The Skinsmiths Sanitising Spray is for cleaning the Derma Roller to ensure it’s 100% cleaned and sanitised after every use.

You basically need to spray the roller head three times with the sanitising spray and wait for 10 minutes, and then rinse the Derma Roller with cold boiled water to reduce the risk of any residue. 

Overal thoughts?

Skinsmiths is a great skincare range, I would highly recommend it. It was created by Caci Clinic to be a skincare brand that extended their high standard of care beyond the clinic doors.

You can check out the entire Skinsmiths range on the Caci Clinic website.

Have you tried any products from Caci Clinic’s Skinsmiths range? What did you think?

Looking to find a raving beauty review on Snowberry’s Instant Deep Cleanser? Well, here you go.

Being a beauty blogger means I get the opportunity to try and review a number of beauty and skincare products, which makes finding new daily favourites quite a challenge due to the high amount of brand and product competition!

But I can hand-on-my-heart say that after the very first use, Snowberry’s Instant Deep Cleanser *instantly* (no pun-intended) claimed its way to fame by taking its spot as my new daily cleanser and makeup remover.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog then you’ll know that this is the final of three product reviews that I have been collaborating with Snowberry on over the last few months (you may have seen my previous reviews on Snowberry’s Gentle Cleaner & Tone and Snowberry’s So Soft Cleanser). Having now used and thoroughly reviewed all three, it’s safe to say that the Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser is by far my favourite.

What does it do?

The Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser is a unique, herbal oil cleanser that easily removes make-up. Equally importantly, and unlike many aggressive cleansers, the Instant Deep Cleanser will not strip the skin of its natural lipids that are a crucially important part of the skin’s defence system.

For this reason, cleansers of this kind are as critically important part of any anti- ageing routine. It is a misconception that an oil-based product will increase the oiliness of skin. Only products strip the skin’s natural oils will it accelerate more oil and sebum production.

First impressions:

My first thought (before I even put it on my face) was how cool the colour was. I must say that it’s the first bright orange cleanser I have used in my lifetime!

Colour aside, I really liked how the formula and texture felt when it was being massaged into my face. It had that grittiness that we all look for and love in a deep cleanser, but it was also super moisturising which is also important for the skin.

I use about 2-3 pumps per wash which is more than enough to generously cover my entire face and strip away the dirt and makeup, it was really gentle to use around the eyes and left my skin feeling hydrated and nourished.

How did my skin feel after a week of using it?

In comparison to how dry my skin feels when using harsher daily foaming cleansers, I felt that the Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser left my skin feeling plump and hydrated after a week of use. I can feel and see that my skin is healthier and better off for it, which is why I am going to continue using this cleanser.

How much does Snowberry’s Instant Deep Cleanser cost?

It retails for $NZ51.00 for 50ml. You can find a list of stockists on their website.
