Emma S Cleansing Facial Wash Review

34932

Pros:

Makes my skin feel very fresh and cleanses well – removes all residue of make-up.

Cons:

Can be a bit hard to wash off.

More:

I‘m not a big fan of those wise words pages in fashion magazines: be a strong woman, be independent, be kind blah blah blah. It‘s usually just common sense but in expensive print with a flashy bag commercial next to it. But the other day I came by an interview with Emma S where she was sharing her words of wisdom – and what struck be about her is that she seemed so incredible…sane. Her words were very simple but still resonated with the kind of person I aspire to be (working on it): never speak poorly of other people, don‘t worry so much, always assume the best about others. The only thing I didn‘t agree with was Emma‘s thought on that nothing interesting happens at a party after 2 in the morning…I don‘t agree – usually that‘s when the table dancing begins….So I‘ll skip that one. Back to my review then.

My thoughts on this facial wash: It has a creamy texture, removes all my make-up residue very well and leaves my skin feeling very fresh. I have noticed I‘ve had less break-outs and black spots after I started using this one.  The bottle lasts for a few months which is another positive. Negatives? Can be a bit hard to remove, because it‘s a bit thick.

The Best Oils For Face and Body List

Having a creepy and unhealthy (but ooh soo fabulous) and addictive relationship with oils I‘ve been going pretty wild these past years and tried to purchase everything for my body and face in oil form. Here is my top list:

  1. Best hair oil ever is this one – affordable and bottle last for a year at least, the only thing that helps when your hair is dying for a cut.
  2.  My favourite body oil smells of lavender, great before bed for a calming effect both for my soul and my legs (whom are scared they will never see the day light due to their chicken skin look).
  3. Cleansing your face with oil became a dream with this cleansing oil, it smells of childhood and the bottle last for many months plus I love to support a good entrepreneur.
  4. Despite its fishy smell I love love love what this oil does for my face during the winter.
  5. The best budget oil out there – almost free and makes you soft like a baby.
  6. This French shower oil is a true treat.

I would like to say I haven‘t meet an oil I didn‘t like but that would be a big fat lie – don‘t try this oil at home beauties.

Bliss Faboulous Foaming Face Wash Review

Pros:

Leaves my face feeling fresh and due to tiny exfoliation beads my skin gets a nice peeling.

Cons:

Contains rose, passion fruit and chamomile – none of which I can smell.

More:

Bliss is a relatively new brand for me, and this is my first ever product from them. I only know they have spas in expensive hotels (W in Miami to mention one of them) and that was enough to get my imagination going of which celebrities have been getting their glow on there.

This face wash makes my face feel very fresh, has a nice smell and a slightly peeling effect – which is perfect since my skin didn’t feel oily when I used it (which is why I use a facial peeling in the first place). You need a relatively small amount per use, but since it smells so delicious I usually used a bit too much each time.

So what does Bliss promise you? Effective removal of make-up and dirt – check. Gentle exfoliation – check. Calming of the skin – well at least I had no break-outs using it.

So what did I dislike about it? It’s supposed to contain rose hip extract, milk thistle, passion-flower and chamomile – I can smell none of these. Also it’s a bit pricy, but worth it if you only use a gentle peeling, then you can replace it with this facial wash.

Rudolph care: Acai Cleansing Foam

rudolphcare-cleansing-foam-1_1

Pros:

Lovely smell, allergy-friendly, organic, very mild, cleanses without drying my skin

Cons:

One pump gives little too much foam for me.

More:

The Acai Cleansing Foam from Rudolph Care is a great foam cleanser that feels light on your skin and leaves your skin cleansed and hydrated. The bottle is beautiful and the pump system is very handy. In my opinion, one pump gives me a little too much foam, so I try to do 2/3 pump, which gives just the right amount of foam.

The foam smells very good and natural (the Rudolph smell) without being perfumed. The foam is mild and I use it for removing mascara as well. My skin feels cleansed, but not dry, after use. My skin is very sensitive and can feel “tight” and dry and urging to get moisture after cleansing – that it not the case with this cleansing foam. Actually, my skin feels fine even if I don’t add any moisture after cleansing (serum/day/night cream).

The foam cleanser is not very suitable for travelling; first off it’s too big to carry on, and second, the pressure makes the pump “leak” (at least that happened to me). So if you take it out travelling, be sure to put it in a plastic bag before packing it with the rest of your stuff.

Rudolph claims that the foam “contains nutritious, active ingredients, including wheat and Pentavitin to add moisture and elasticity, as well as purple coneflower which has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and anti-irritant properties.” also it is supposed to deep-cleanse and reduce impurities and inflammation. I don’t feel that I can 100% assess those claims, however, I can say that my skin feels great and doesn’t act out of the ordinary (no breakouts etc) when I use this foam cleanser.

All in all, a nice cleansing foam. It is a little pricey and it doesn’t last for ages, but you get a good, mild, organic, allergy-friendly cleanser that smells, looks and feels great.

By the way, the Acai Cleansing Foam was nominated for the Danish Beauty Award 2014 in the category “Green Product of the Year”.
