I am a self admitted, skin care screw up. Even that is an exaggeration, because I’d have to have some kind of skin care routine in the first place to screw it up!
I know I’ve been neglecting my skin, and taking advantage of my youth. Since I’ve been blogging a lot more recently and getting involved in the beauty community I have kind of realised I need to look after my skin a hell of a lot more. I don’t have unlimited funds for such things so I found myself looking in ASDA for some skin care products that were a great price and still gave me that luxury feel!
I came across the gorgeous NSPA Products exclusive to ASDA. They were on offer at 3 for two so I picked up three items that caught my eye! I looked on the back of the items and also realised they are vegan friendly and cruelty free along with being made in the UK. This ticked three big boxes for me because I am trying to be more conscious of the ingredients in my products, how they are tested and where they come from!
And before anyone mentions it, yes, I know I picked 1,2,2 instead of the recommended 1,2,3 but I have lots of moisturiser at home (this was the suggested no.3) and was much more intrigued by the radiant flash serum! Sometimes you just have to go with the items you like!
Price and Packaging: I picked up all three items for £10, which I think is amazing compared to some of the more high end products in this department! The packaging was precise, and modern. I love the fresh blue colour of the boxes, they really felt like luxury items!
I started the routine by using the Micellar Cleanser to wipe off any excess makeup from my already wiped face.
The instructions were as follows:
Apply generously to a cotton wool pad. Wipe the pad in gentle circular motions over skin to remove dirt and make-up, repeat as necessary until the pad is clear. For best results, use morning and evening and follow with Step 2 Treat and 3 Moisturise.
This item worked great! I used a cotton wool bud to wipe off any excess makeup from around my eyes and used a baby wipe to do the rest. There was no scent to this cleanser and it left my face feeling clean.
I then moved onto the Brightening Micro Derma Scrub using the instructions as follows:
Smooth Scrub onto damp skin and work in with gentle circular motions. Rinse well with warm water and gently pat dry. Follow with Step 3 Moisturise. For best results, with dry skin exfoliate up-to three times per week. With more oily skin exfoliate up-to two times per week.
The gentle exfoliator was gentle like the packaging stated, the scent was also gorgeous, I feel like that had something to do with the added ginseng! Also containing vitamin E this exfoliator is designed to leave your face feeling clear, refined and smooth. It did!
After patting my face dry I applied a small amount of Epaderm moisturiser before moving onto my last item!
The Radiant Flash Serum – I just love this one! As you can see below, the glow is phenomenal!
Instructions: Apply serum onto cleansed skin, patting or smoothing in gently. Wear over or under makeup for an instant pick-me-up
I smoothed a pea sized amount over my cleansed face and it looked and smelt divine! I couldn’t pick it up on the photograph but it left my face shimmering ✨!
I am completely impressed with all aspects of these products, and I’m also really pleased that I went for numbers 1,2,2 because I feel like with my added moisturiser between I completed my perfect 4 step process!
I thoroughly enjoyed using these items and would definitely recommend! Have you used NSPA before?
