Yesterday, I received a lovely email from Nevin, the first-place winner of Spoiled Pretty’s Face Boutique giveaway. She’s had some time to experiment with her prizes and wanted to share her reviews with me – and with you. Here’s what she had to say:
So i’ve had some time now to try all the fabulous products that you generously sent my way via your giveaway. Here is my review…
First, I just want to say that these products from Face Boutique came in the cutest packaging ever! I hadn’t even tried anything yet and already I was impressed. Now, wouldn’t you know that the day I receive these items, I get a huge whitehead on my face. Now normally, this isn’t something I would broadcast to all of you readers, but I’ll make an exception this time because that night I used the Spot-less Blemish Gel. It’s a clear, odorless gel that comes in a small tube. You just dab it on and it dries out the whitehead and reduces the redness. A few nights of this and my problem was solved! It actually worked!
On to the Peachy Clean Facial Wash. The wash comes out as a clear liquid but quickly foams up as soon as you lather it on your face. The first time I tried this, I was in love! It’s soft and smooth, does not irritate my eyes, has the most heavenly peach scent, and washes off great. Your face is left feeling incredibly clean and refreshed. For those of you who don’t like scents, don’t be afraid to purchase this one as the peach scent is very light and subtle, and at night, very calming and soothing. Definitely gets you ready for a good nights sleep.
So naturally after washing my face, I always moisturize. Unfortunately, I have to say that I was not impressed with the Fresh Faced Oil-Free Moisturiser. It’s a clear liquid in a tube. I immediately thought it was weird for a moisturizer to be this way, and boy was I right! After putting it on, my face did not feel moisturized at all. It felt almost sticky! I had to use my normal moisturizer to make my skin feel smooth again. I gave this a few more tries because I loved the other Face Boutique products, but it just didn’t work for me.
Last but not least, the Sweep Clean Cloths…so, you know how sometimes you just are not in the mood to go through your nightly face cleansing ritual for whatever reason, but you know you should because sleeping with a face full of makeup is not a good thing! Well, that’s when these cloths can really come to your rescue. The cloths are already moist so all you have to do is pull one out, wipe your face clean and then throw it out. That’s it! You feel clean and refreshed in seconds.
Overall, I am very happy with the Face Boutique items and will most likely be restocking once I run out. To all of the Spoiled Pretty readers, I highly recommend you try some of these out for yourselves. To Daneen, thank you again for allowing me to try these great products!
