Review: NSPA Skincare!
Today's post is regarding NSPA skincare! NSPA tweeted whether anyone would be interested in trying the skincare, I leapt at the chance as I had heard great things! A lovely package arrived with four items! I was so chuffed! So thank you NSPA!
NSPA is a company that was created by Nirvana Spa, it states it is UKs n.1 Day Spa and that every product is "inspired by spa formulations that will boost and transform skin". They also don't test on animals.
Melting Gel Cleanser
NSPA state that this "luxurious formulation melts effortlessly and emulsifies into a milk on contact with water. Grapeseed oil dissolves makeup and impurities and helps improve skin radiance".
I used this product as part of my bedtime routine, I would remove eye makeup using a different product then apply this to cleanse my skin. It has a pink colour to the formulation which feels just like gel, it applies easily and is not sticky. When in contact with water it does turn to milk! I was fascinateD I washed the product off and patted my skin dry. The result was fab! My skin feels soft like a babies bum! It didnt remove all makeup so would advise you use another product to take off all makeup but it did make my skin feel super soft. I feel that the product improved my radiance but my skin didnt improve with spots etc. I would repurchase as I feel my skin felt at its best after using this, as my skin had not felt that soft in a long time.
Hot Cloth Polish
NSPA state that this product will "cleanse, exfoliate and purify skin" It has essential oil of Neroli and Cocoa Butter.
I used this product with a muslin cloth as part of my cleansing routine. I applied onto dry skin over my face and neck. It is a thick white cream that applies easy and is non greasy. The polish was then rinsed off with the cloth that I rinsed under hot water. It definately felt like a spa treatment and made my skin feel smooth and soft. I would repurchase this as feel it cleaned my skin really well.
Illuminating Beauty Serum
NSPA state that this give "an instant luminous skin glow". It has Oil of Neroli and Maca Root.
I used this product every evening after the hot cloth polish. This is my favourite NSPA product. It smells of a spa and has a silky consistancy. The serum made my skin super soft and when I woke up my skin still felt amazing and had a glow to it! I definately would recommend this to anyone. I was never sure whether it would make my skin oily as my skin is combination-oily, but it didnt, instead my skin felt soft and had a glow.
Brightening Day Cream with SPF15
NSPA states this moisturiser will give "light daily protection" and "radiant skin".
I used this every morning before I applied my foundation. It is light and has a handy pump. I found this moisturiser made my pores go on oil overdrive, it is a little watery and didnt soak in quick enough for me. The moisturiser has a spa scent which is lovely. I dont feel this moisturiser is for me unfortunately, dont think it suits my skin type.
