Supercharged cleansing with Foreo

Foreo Luna Play Plus Review

Cleansing brushes have been around for a while now and although I've dabbled in the past, they never became a long-term addition to my skincare routine. That's a product of my laziness and forgetting to put them on charge, but moreover because my skin is quite sensitive and the bristles over time irritated my skin.

So when I discovered Foreo I wasn't sure if it would be a similar deal or not. In fact it worked out quite well and I used my Luna Play until it finally ran out of power (the Luna Play has a lifespan of 100 uses). I was lucky to be gifted the Luna Play Plus* which is a little bit larger than then the original and you can replace the battery when it runs out - life changing!

The soft silicone 'fingers' as I like to think of them gently massage the skin as the Luna Play Plus vibrates, unclogging pores and removing much more dirt than a typical cleanse is capable. At the top there's some larger 'fingers' (I'm sure there's a proper name but bear with), which means you can really get into areas around the nose and t-zone that maybe need a bit of more of a deeper cleanse. I've been using this Foreo for a good few months now and I'm really into it. By just using it for a minute every day I've really noticed how much softer and brighter my skin is as it's truly clean each time.

I also wanted to mention Foreo's cleansers as they're really nice to use. Quite often these add-on skincare products for cleansing tools are a bit naff, but both the Foreo Day and Night Cleansers* are lovely. The Foreo Day Cleeanser is my favourite of the two as it's like a soft milky yoghurt texture - perfect for sensitive and reactive skin that needs a gentle yet effective cleanse. I have been known to use it at night too, what a rebel! It uses fruit extracts to revitalise and wakeup the skin and leaves the complexion soft and nourished, The Foreo Night Cleanser is quite unique, it's more of a gel with tiny meteorite powder particles in which gently yet deeply purifies the skin. Well worth a try if you're looking for something new.

I've now set my sights on the Foreo UFO which is a super advanced mask treatment device. Have you tried it?

A New Gucci Perfume For Autumn

Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme Review

The perfume addict in me always revels when the seasons change as I see it as an excuse to not only switch up my fragrance, but of course to treat myself to something new. I have a fairly extensive perfume collection which you will know if you're read my blog for any amount of time, but the rush of something new is hard for me to ignore. Superdrug recently sent me a bottle of Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme* to try out, and if you're into matching perfumes to the seasons, this is a bit of an autumn corker.

I've never actually tried any Gucci perfumes before as all the popular ones that my friends had back in the day like Rush and Rush 2, were far too sickly sweet and never inspired me to check out the line which looking back is a bit of a crime on my part (sorry Gucci!). Gucci Guilty Absolute came out early this year and is a follow up to the original Guilty fragrance. Billed as a "non-traditional perfume for the modern woman", Guilty Absolute is a chypre fruity scent. The notes consist of blackberry - of which I'm a recent convert and is likely to be a autumn winter stable for my perfume tastes, as well as Bulgarian rose which is spicy and warm, goldenwood that provides a woody warmth and patchouli for depth. It's a bit like immersing yourself in the most scrumptiously soft and warm cashmere jumper and sipping a chai latte in front of a fire with your favourite candle burning.

Warm spicy oriental floral scents tend to wear particularly well I find, and this perfume is no different. I'm really enjoying the fruity blackberry and of course the rose as let's face it, I never turn my nose up at anything rose scented and this one is very genuine and not at all synthetic as some can be. What's quite different about this perfume is that it has a linear composition, so once its combined itself with your skin and dries down it remains the same until it finally wears off.

Gucci Guilty Absolute is one of my most reached for scents this season already, although as it is warm, deep and spicy I won't reach for it come spring. I guess when the time comes that gives me yet another excuse to pick up something new. Enable me, please!
