I am obsessed with skincare, always have been and probably always will be. I think it is so important to look after your skin. However what works for some people, doesn’t always work for others, so you need to find what suits your particular skintype and go with it. This is why I am always keen to try new products, to make sure my skin is as happy as it can be. Oh and believe me, if your skin doesn’t like something… it will tell you!
I was drawn to the epiSpa range by the fact it is totally organic, which is a huge selling point for me. The products include ingredients such as manuka honey, aloe vera, green tea and various other fruit extracts and essential oils. I feel I can trust the products to treat my skin, whilst knowing that everything I am putting on my face is natural and unprocessed, which really is how it should be!
When I first opened these up I was very impressed with the packaging. The boxes were wrapped in additional tissue paper, which instantly added to the luxury feel of the products. The colour of the packaging was really unique to me, it was a pretty faded pink colour which I hadn’t seen before (I am sure there is other packaging like this on the market, just none I have come across) so this caught my eye whilst still maintaining that elegant and high end feel.
I had been looking for a good toner for a while, something that balanced, refreshed and nourished my skin after cleansing. This toner ticked quite a few boxes, it closed my pores without leaving the skin feeling too tight and left a clean, smooth texture behind. I was not sure about the scent at the first, it says it is cucumber and cherry blossom but I think it smelt more like aloe than anything else. It is not a typical sweet or delicate smell but is a little harsher, which I think could be off putting if you are sensitive to scents. However, after initial application, the smell does fade. It comes in a spray form, which is different to other toners I have previously used, which require the use of a cotton pad. The spray itself is honestly the best I have come across, it is firm and creates a very fine mist distributing the product evenly across the entire face in 1 or 2 pumps (rather than just squirting you in the eye!). One thing I did notice however is that the text on the bottle had started to wear, and this was only after a about a week. You can purchase the toner HERE.
I was really impressed with the clay mask, you get a good amount and the product feels lovely and smooth on the skin. I have used clay masks in the past which have triggered a stinging or itching sensation. I loved that this product didn’t aggravate my sensitive skin and left my face feeling even and totally purified. My pores felt like they had experienced a very deep clean, which is always satisfying! It was easy to wash off which I liked, it is a pain when you have to scrub for ages to remove the product. The smell was not offensive, just a clean, fresh cucumber scent. You can purchase the mask HERE.
I think these products work nicely as a 2 step system, complimenting each other to leave you feeling well and truly pampered. I wouldn’t say the products are super affordable, especially with the clay mask retailing at £45.00. However, the products actually do what they say on the tin, which can be rare!
