Caudalie Detox Mask ft. Naturisimo

Wednesday, May 20, 2015
While spring cleaning my makeup and skincare collection a couple of weeks ago, I decided that I wanted to start using more natural/green/eco brands as the natural brands are the ones I gravitate towards more in my current collection such as Caudalie, Elemental Herbology, REN, Jurlique and Burts Bees, Avene and The Body Shop products, to an extent. So when the lovely people at Naturisimo sent me this amazing packaging I was so excited! 

I happily received the *Caudalie Instant Detox Mask (£22, 75ml) which is one of the new face masks brought out by Caudalie. I love the Caudalie products I have tried over the years such as the Vinosource SOS serum as well as their Caviar Cabernet Scrub and delightfully fresh eau de toilettes. However, I haven't tried any of their masks until now but I always have high hopes for Caudalie skincare; their products contain natural active ingredients free from parabens, mineral oils and they are cruelty free in Europe. Firstly, I love the packaging, it looks very luxe, natural and spa like and the lid is actually made of wood. 

The mask is a deep salmon pink shade, it feels clay like and it smells so nice - very natural and herbal almost. As the mask is so thick and smooth, it applies quickly, easily and it doesn't create a mess! I only apply it to my t-zone as those are the areas that for me can become congested and in need of a good detox every once in a while. The mask does harden on the skin as it dries which reminds me of old school days with clay/mud masks but it doesn't feel uncomfortable. As the pink mask dries, small holes/circles appear where my pores are so I assume the mask is cleaning out the pores or is being absorbed and it is nice to actually see and feel a face mask doing something unlike my other masks which are very creamy. 

After 10 minutes, I use the Caudalie Beauty Elixir or the Jurlique Balancing Mist on cotton pads to remove the mask. My skin is left super clean feeling and smooth but not stripped or dry. I feel as though the mask shrunk my smaller pores massively and my pores overall did look a lot less noticeable which is fantastic as they can be rather massive! Overall, I love the mask and I think it will last a long time for me as a little goes a long way and I do only need to use it on my t-zone. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

After removing the face mask, I have been using samples from Dr Jackson skincare. I have the *Dr Jackson 03 Face Oil, it is a sample and it comes in a rollerball bottle which I love as it is so easy to apply the facial oil as they can be a little messy and it means I don't apply too much - I want all of my facial oils to come in rollerball bottles now! The oil itself smells heavenly, it isn't too oily on my dry, sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate my skin. I have been using it in my evening skincare routine everyday since I received it and I love it although I personally wouldn't use it under makeup. 

I also received a sample of the *Dr Jackson 01 Skin Cream - Day Cream which contains Kigelia traditionally used to treat eczema and other skin irritations so it is perfect for me. The cream is nourishing, moisturising, smoothing and again it doesn't irritate my skin. The cream I love the most though is the *Dr Jackson 02 Skin Cream - Night Cream which really moisturises my skin, it smells so good and I love the sample/full size packaging! Overall, I am very impressed with the Dr Jackson samples I have, I would definitely look into their range in the future though it is pretty pricy! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5!

Have you tried the new Caudalie masks? Have you tried anything from Dr Jackson? What are your favourite natural/eco/green beauty brands?

  1. I've heard about this mask - only good thing and I'd really like to try it some time, but for now it's way above my budget, so I'm gonna have to find sth more affordable, yet as good as this one ;)

  15. The tube is gorgeous, I love that the lid is actually made of wood!
    The mask sounds great too, it's always nice to use something that you can actually see working. The idea of a facial oil with a rollerball is absolute genius...
