I’ve been lucky enough to go on press trips to a few stunning locations in this world and there’s nothing more fun that getting my hands on foreign beauty products.
On a lovely spa break to Corsica, I was gifted with a ‘face mask’ which turned out to be very surprising indeed.
Most of the text on the bottle is in French so I have no clue what it claims to do BUT I found the site and this is the Intense Purity Exfoliating Smoothing Mask from the Dolce Piacere Honey range.
Review: So while this claims to be a mask, it is actually a very creamy face scrub.
I used it as a sort of hybrid product at first and smoothed it onto my face, leaving it for a minute, before gently rubbing around my face. But then it was clear that I should just apply it like any other scrub.
The grains are small but rough so I was careful not to rub too much because I’m aware that over exfoliation is a bad idea for oily skin.
I only used this scrub twice a week so it lasted for months because you really don’t need to use too much at all.
The result you get is very smooth skin and while my spot scars didn’t vanish or anything, I did feel like my complexion was clearer.
My face also felt very moisturised compared to what it feels like with other scrubs and I can’t help but think that may have something to do with the ‘mask’ ingredients.
Verdict: This is great for normal to oily skin and is probably the most moisturising scrub I’ve ever used. Definitely NOT a mask so I learnt that you might need to take a closer look at foreign beauty products if you are ever tempted to buy some on holiday.
Speaking of holiday, I think I’ll posting my trip to Corsica on my other blog soon just so you can get an idea of what Corsica was like…
