Let Your Skin Live in Harmony with Alive {Competition Closed}

Our beautiful fashion fairy friends over at Lushberry – The Online Style Destination have spoilt me with a new experience in skincare, Alive Products.

Green Envy

Green EnvyFor the past week and a bit I’ve been lucky enough to experience the Alive Bio Organic Facial Mask – Green Envy. The product is as the name suggests, green. As normal, anything that is green is good for you be in vegetables, trees, grass and even skin care. Green is better! This mask is typically for people who have excess sebum build up which results in oily or acne prone skin. The key ingredient in the mask is French Green Clay, imported from the source in France, this is the base of all the Alive products and is renowned for having healing properties. In the form of a facial mask, this French Green Clay uses it absorptive property to draw out impurities, excess oil and toxins.

Immortal Beauty

Immortal BeautyIf you are more worried about combatting the signs of ageing, then the Immortal Beauty facial mask is more up your street, the key ingredient in this mask is French Red Clay which contains iron oxides to smoothe, soften, lighten and refine the grain of your skin resulting in a painless facelift in a tub. Essential oils are also used to regenerate skin cells.

For the best results the masks should be applied to the face with a mask brush and left for 15 minutes or until the clay has dried and then removed with warm water, followed by your every day/evening moisturiser. You can use the facial masks daily on problematic areas or use weekly as part of your at-home facials.

Immediately, after first use I noticed that my skin felt smoother, although you may experience a slight redness due to the mask stimulating blood flow beneath the surface of the skin to eliminate impurities, excess oil and toxins (I did not, which is surprising as my skin can red faster than a Ferrari can go from 0-100km per hour).

If you are interested in trying out the Alive products, find them here at Lushberry for R129,00 each.

Product Review ~ AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask

Hello Pretty poutlings!

Hope you are all having a fantastic day. Today I would like to tell you about AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask which I received in my November Rubybox.

AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask 

This product sells for R350 for 50ml

Yes, it’s true, most ladies freak out if they think of putting mud on their faces, but this one was such a treat! I made sure that I had enough in my sample pouch for 2 treatments for me.

Detoxifying Dead sea mud with kaolin (a soft white china clay) together with energising minerals and moisturising elements cleanse and clears all excess oil without stripping the skin.

Applied after a good wash and exfoliation with my EA 3-in-1 I left it on for 2 minutes as directed and then rinsed off.

I do have to say my skin felt absolutely wonderful after this treatment, soft and supple and moisturised.

So, if you’re looking for a mask to treat yourself with every now and then, this is it ladies!

Go on, you deserve it!

Have a pouty perfect day!

Tuesday Product Review ~ Decléor Hydra Floral Moisturising Mask

Hello pretty poutlings!

Hope you’re all having a fantastic day!

So, today we will be reviewing

Decléor Hydra Floral Moisturising Mask 

This product sells for about R385 for 50ml

We received a trial size in our OCtober Rubybox, and one in our November Glambox.


This wonderful  mask give your skin a hydrating boost. It is suitable for all skin types, packed with comforting neroli oil (yay happiness) and leaves skin soothed, quenched and protected against environmental pollutants.

I did use this product only once. It is a great product from  a  great company as I said before I love the Neroli oil product, even though it is suitable for all skin types, it might be a little too rich for me as I got a few breakouts after using this product. My suggestion is that you visit your nearest beauty counter and get a trial size before you buy this product, especially if you have an oily T-zone.

Have a pouty perfect day!
