Cien Tropical Summer Mango Face Mask by Lidl

Cien Tropical Summer Mango Face Mask by Lidl

A while ago I saw this Tropical Summer Face Mask in Lidl, they had 2 versions in my local one: Strawberry and Mango, and I opted for the latter one.

This face mask is a "smoothing gel mask with vitamin B3, papaya enzyme and mango fresh cells for noticeable smoother skin". Although I'm not exactly sure what they meant by "mango fresh cells" I still wanted to try it because of the B3 or Niacinamide and exfoliating papaya enzymes. 

The Cien Tropical Summer Mango Face Mask has a very sweet mango scent and a light gel consistency that is easy to apply. I just smooth it on and leave it for about 10 minutes then rinse off - it does mention that it can be just wiped off with a tissue but I like to make sure the products I apply afterwards will get into my skin. 

After rinsing it off my skin feels smoother and softer. I really like the smell and also the affordability of this mask, which is why I would definitely recommend it if you want to try out a gentle exfoliating product for your face.

This is a limited edition face mask however it seems to make a come back each summer, so if you see it definitely snap it up, otherwise take a look at the Naturally Radiant range from Superdrug or the Botanical Lab Pumpkin & Papaya Enzyme Daily Exfoliator

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Poppy

For Valentine's Day Dot got me some skincare and beauty items, including the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Poppy.

The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment is a tinted lip balm with SPF 15 that claims to "moisturise, protect, and smooth the lips while leaving a deep pink red tint, offering sheer coverage or buildable colour." 

The ingredients include Jojoba, Grape, Avocado, Passionflower, Meadowfoam, Blackcurrant and Sunflower Seed Oils, as well as Vitamin E and Vitamin A. 

This gorgeous tinted lip balm feels amazing on the lips, it has a buttery consistency that melts on contact and leaves a beautiful reddish pink tint that can, as described, be anything from sheer or more solid depending on how much you apply. 

Definitely a treat for dry lips, I really enjoy using the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Poppy to help moisturise my lips, add a wash of colour and feel more put together in an instant. 

Find the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment collection on Cult Beauty.

Rainy Summer Style Holographic rain mac, beige wellies


So you spend half the year hoping it will get warm and sunny already, wearing layers upon layers waiting for summer, and then it arrives - bringing with it lots of cloudy days and rain! But don't despair as you can still look cute and stylish while gallivanting in the rain by accessorising with the above items (from see-through rain macs so you can still show your outfit off, to some sunglasses in case the sun decides to come back out) all hand picked by yours truly.

Nivea Body Moisturising Mousse

Nivea Body Moisturising Mousse

Last week as the temperatures were rising I noticed that the skin on my legs was looking dry, but as it was hot I didn't want to use a heavy moisturiser, so I remembered I had the Nivea Body Moisturising Mousse I got for Christmas still waiting to be used and tried it for the first time. 

The Nivea Body Moisturising Mousse is designed for dry skin and claims to provide deep moisture leaving skin softer and smoother for 48 hours. The formula is infused with "deep moisture serum" and Shea Butter and promises to be light to the touch but rich to the skin. 

The product is very easy to use, you just shake the can and squirt some product onto hands, then apply to the skin. The Nivea Body Moisturising Mousse has a very light whipped texture, similar to chantilly cream. As soon as it is applied it melts onto the skin and makes it look and feel moisturised. It doesn't leave any sticky residue and feels breathable, not heavy, which is ideal for summer. 

Something I didn't completely love was the scent, which I thought would be the exact same as the classic Nivea creme products, however it smells a tiny bit like an ever so slightly sour version of it, which I don't know if that was just my can or it's the normal scent it features. Other than that, it is a really nice product that I would use and acquire again. 

Find the Nivea Body Moisturising Mousse in Superdrug.
