MakeUp Store - Home Spa Salt Polish in Vanilla/Citrus

Friday 13 December 2013

The MakeUp Store in Sliema is a shop I don't often visit. I work in Sliema and when the weekend comes I normally want to kick back a relax, but when I do visit The Point shopping Mall, The MakeUp store is my little bit of heaven.

Last time I was at the store I got a satchet  on the Home Spa Salt Polish in Vanilla/Citrus. I love a good salt body scrub, and this one smells divine, I love products that smells like luxury spa's and this polish ticks that box.

The polish is nice a corse but not too heavy, perfect for using all over, but I would avoid using it on your face. There is loads of product in one sachet enough for a genourous helping of one use. 

The only downfall is they don't make this in large tubs so it's something I would save for a treat rather than using regularly. But saving it for special occasions makes it that more special.

If you're looking to pamper yourself at home without the expense of visiting a spa, next time you are at The Point be sure to point up one of these as a treat and let the heavenly smell melt away your woes and leaving your skin silky smooth.

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Lips review

Thursday 12 December 2013

Cicaplast Lips - €5.50*

Winter is now well under way and while I look after my skin all year round, I give it a little more attention in the winter to make sure it's properly hydrated - those cold winds can really dry it out.

The first area of my skin to get affected is my lips, and when La Roche-Posay launched their Cicaplast lips in Malta, I couldn't wait to try it out. I'm already a big fan out their Anthelios Stick SPF 50+ that I carry around with me in summer so I had high expectations for this, and I can tell you I was wasn't disappointed.

When it comes to lip balms I can be quite picky. For lip care I prefer not to use products with petroleum jelly, as it acts as a barrier rather hydrating your lips and I'm happy that Cicaplast is free from petroleum jelly as well as lanolin. As horrible as Lanolin is, I know it works well on my lips keeping them soft and smooth, but I have seen the same results with Cicaplast as I have had with lanolin based products, which I'm very happy about - all the benefits without the icky factor! I've been using this product for the last 3 weeks and report back that it does work. My lips have stayed hydrated and soft even in the harsh weather we've been having.

The balm comes in a squeezable tube and the product is quite thick but applies easily to the lips and goes on clear with immediate results.

A little off topic but something I had to share - Did you know what La Roche-Posay is available in every pharmacy in Malta? This makes me happy! 

Next time your in a pharmacy be sure to grab some of this to keep in your handbag, your lips will thank you for it!

Lierac Mésolift Serum

Saturday 7 December 2013

Last month I was lucky enough to attend the launch of Lierac in Malta. I have to say I was rather excited, I love french skin care (don't they just have the best skin!) and was eager to try some Lierac products.

I've been just this Lierac Mésolift serum for the last 3 weeks now and I have to say I'm impressed. I've used it twice daily, once in the morning after cleansing my skin and before I got to bed after removing all my make up.

Mésolift Serum contains a cocktail of 5 vitamins, 6 minerals and hyaluronic acid which helps reenergise your skin. The formula is light weight, non greasy and easily soaks into the skin.

The glass bottle comes with dropper so you don't waste any product. One dropper full will do my whole face, while it doesn't seem like a lot of product a little really does go a long way. There is a slight scent to the serum, which is hard to describe but smells faintly of oranges, but fragrance isn't over powering.

While I generally take good care of my skin, I have to say that the Mésolift serum has helped my skin feel firmer and gave it that little extra glow.

If you're looking for some new skin scare, I would highly recommend that your check our the Lierac range, as mentioned in my last post they have products for all your needs! You can check out their full range at : , I've also spotted the products in Franks as well.

Have you tried any Lierac products, what was your favourite?
