Product Review: Dermalogica Skin Refining Masque

Carrying on with my new tradition of Sunday evening relaxation and face mask wearing, this past Sunday evening I treated myself to some quiet time with a good book and my holy grail of face masks – The Dermalogica Skin Refining Masque. This product was recommended to me by a Dermalogica specialist during my initial Face Mapping session and has been my favourite mask ever since. I think I’ve repurchased it around three times now, and will continue to do so in the future. Though it’s not not as interesting to look at as the Rodial Glamoxy Snake Mask, I can’t deny the internet yet another picture of me looking like a moron, so here we are:

Please, try to resist. The mask is designed to “clarify and refine the texture of your skin, and contains oil-absorbing clays and purifying plant extracts to deep-cleanse, which helps to reduce oily-skin breakouts”. This makes it perfect for those of you who have oily/combination skin like myself. The biggest results that I see from this mask occure are following few days, with my skin looking a lot clearer (breakouts begone!) and the general redness in my skin is reduced dramatically. The Dermalogica Skin Refining Masque retails for $59 AUD and can be purchased from Australian online beauty retailer Adore Beauty. (shh, if you’re quick you can also pick it up from Strawberrynet for $38.50 AUD)

Product Review: Seven Wonders Moroccan Treatment Oil

Allow me to introduce you all to my most reached for hair product of the moment, the Seven Wonders Moroccan Treatment Oil. Unless you’ve been living in an argan-oil-is-awesome free zone, you would have heard of Moroccanoil, which has now hit cult status in the beauty world. I was really curious when I first received the Seven Wonders products to see how they would stand up against the infamous Moroccanoil range. So far I have not been disappointed. I decided to start trialling the Treatment Oil first, and plan to post my reviews of the shampoo & conditioner at a later date. Now, to the oil. First of all I find the smell of the Seven Wonders oil to be a lot more pleasant than Moroccanoil. It’s a fresh, almost floral scent that doesn’t linger for too long on the hair, but smells lovely while applying the product. The results are pretty much everything you want from a Moroccan hair oil – soft, silky and shiny. I couldn’t stop touching my hair after first trying this product out, it was so silky. (This became quite obsessive and unnecessary after a while, but whatevs. Silky hair is the cat’s pyjamas.) Lastly, one of the biggest perks about the Seven Wonders oil is the packaging. The bottle comes with an easy to use pump top which is far easier to manage with slippery oil covered hands than the screw top bottle, let me tell you. The Seven Wonders products are also sulphate and paraben free, bonus points for that. The Seven Wonders Moroccan Treatment Oil retails for $34.95 AUD and can be purchased from health food stores and pharmacies nation wide, and you can find your local stockist on the Seven Wonders website. (note: I was sent this product for consideration for review)
