REVIEW: L’ORÉAL TRUE MATCH SUPER BLENDABLE FOUNDATION

True match is undoubtably one of, if not the most definitive of all drugstore foundations. Growing up, I’d watch my mother smoothly apply her L’Oréal foundation in the early mornings.

Essentials EDIT: The Pinned Blazer Look

My newest and most favourite essential atm has to be this very oversized blazer I recently thrifted. So oversized to the point that I had to pin the blazer with my seahorse broach (also thrifted) to give somewhat of an asymmetrical shape. This houndstooth blazer is actually a men’s blazer, but because of how oversized it is on me – I’ve found that it’s perfect … Continue reading Essentials EDIT: The Pinned Blazer Look

REVIEW: Irum Cosmetics 100% Pure & Organic Skincare

So this week I’ve had the opportunity to try out a couple of organic, skin care products from Irum Cosmetics! This vegan and cruelty-free brand currently feature two organic products on their site that they’ve kindly sent me to share my thoughts and review.

As someone who wears makeup more than often, I never go to bed without making sure my skin is at least cleansed or better yet treated as needed. For someone like me, it is extremely important to take the time to care for my skin, especially to ensure I have a smooth base for makeup application before anything else. With that being said, I’m thrilled to have tested, used and experienced these two main products from Irum Cosmetics, their Green Clay Mask Powder and their classic Pure and Organic, Argan Oil!

Green Clay Powder Mask £7.99

Contains 100g of Product

  • Vegan
  • Not Tested On Animals
  • Contains No added chemicals or preservatives
  • Ingredients: 100% Pure Green Clay (Bentonite)

Instructions:

Usage (for all skin types)

  1. Mix 1 tsp of clay with some water or Rosewater to make a thin paste
  2. Apply the paste onto face, skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes
  3. Wash off with lukewarm water

For external use only.

Some Benefits:

  • helps to reduce the outbreak of blemishes
  • Great for balancing oily skin
  • Absorbs waste such as harmful toxins and dirt
  • Deeply cleanses the skin
  • Helps Stimulate and improve blood circulation
  • Tightens and lifts the skin

I must quickly mention that the packaging is perfect for this powder mask! Seeing as it is powder, the product can get everywhere quite quickly. But with this jar I love how sealed it is even after use, making it easy for me to travel with it!

Application

So the application process was simple and easy as I used a clean plastic container or even the palm of my hand at times to quickly apply the product.

It has a refreshing, distinct smell (like green clay…..obvs, Stacy), but when applied for the first time I felt this cooling, self-distributing method going on, on my skin – it was lovely! Felt like a spa treatment, to be honest.

I evenly applied the product all over the face and I’d say within 10 minutes of waiting, I felt my face tightening up like crazy. It felt like some sort of facelift – like I myself was clay drying up into a statue. It’s clear the mask was certainly doing its job! 20 minutes then go by and I’m washing it off with lukewarm water as recommended. I also tried with cold water just because and both results wowed me!

My face looked and felt tightened yet incredibly lifted! my Mother even noticed a difference in the texture of my skin. It may sound odd but my face also felt lighter. The mask really did help rid of the impurities and oiliness that remained on my skin – definitely a weekly treatment that makes all the difference in texture! I enjoyed it.

Mini Rating

Application: 4/5

Drying: 5/5

Feeling and texture of the mask after 20 minutes: 4/5

Results: 5/5

My Thoughts

I fell in LOVE with the fact that this mask powder is extremely versatile. Instead of mixing just a few drop of water, you could also add, Aloe Vera, Rose Water, Honey, Cucumber Juice, Coconut for hydration, even Lavender, Cactus and so forth!

This has definitely got me hooked onto the powder mask train – will last longer and for sure give my skin the weekly treatment it needs! I personally think this product is great for anyone, especially any makeup wearers or those who spend a lot of time outdoors!
