Winter Gems | New Products Review ft Epoch & Nu Skin

For the last month or so I've switched up my skincare routine to include some of the new products I've managed to get my hands on. I've been dedicated to put these to the test, so my usual products have been put away and swapped for some of the products I'll dive into in this post.

EPOCH Glacial Marine Mud

As you all know I'm a face mask junkie and treat myself to a pamper at least 2 or 3 times a week. I'm used to switching my masks up throughout the week and jump at the chance to try out a newbie. 

With the promises of renewing my skin, banishing dead skin cells and rejuvenate damaged skin - I was excited to put this mud mask to the test to see whether it could add some life to my skin. 

Presented in a tube, the mask has quite a thin consistency and glides on to the skin very easily. It wasn't difficult at all to get an even application with the use of an old foundation brush. The mask took slightly longer to dry in comparison to other clay masks I've tried before which I believe is due to the fact it is more liquid based. After around 40 minutes of wearing the mask, my skin felt tight and tingled slightly -which I never mind because it shows me the product is actually doing something!

Once removing the mask, my face was slightly red which at first got me a little worried. however, after around 5-10 minutes the redness was significantly reduced and my skin had never felt softer!

I found a huge difference in the appearance of my pores after one week of using this mask. The mask kept to it's promises of drawing out any dirt or impurities and my skin texture was visibly smoother. The next day I felt both my primer and foundation applied a lot easier and I couldn't wait to try the product again. After around a month of using this mask my blackheads are practically all gone and my pores have never seemed so reduced!

The only downside of the product for me would be the packaging. All in all it's a basic tube which works fine for me, however the lid is a little bit fiddly to get back on again. As I'm sure I have many many more used out of the product I didn't want any to dry up but as the lid never firmly closed again I was left with some of the mask drying up near the nib of the packaging.

In general, I'm so pleased with the results of this mask and although I know I'll go back to multi-masking and mixed my face masks up throughout the week, the Glacial Marine Mud has made it's way into my collection. 

Nu Skin - Polishing Peel

Following the face mask, I've been testing out the Nu Skin Polishing Peel. Yes, just like you the word "peel" on a product makes me excited and worried at the same time - thinking about peeling off all my impurities but also the risk of my skin reacting badly. 

I've been using this product around twice a week to finalise my skincare routine. Following the instructions I applied an even layer to dry, cleansed skin and let it sit for around 2 minutes. The product firms slightly on my skin after the minute and then I rub in the rest of the product into my skin and neck. Letting this sit for another 30 seconds or so and then I wash it off using water and pat dry.

When I say the results of this peel are immediate - I mean it. I found my skin instantly looked cleaner and brighter and all of the dead skin sitting on my face was noticeably removed. 

Nu Skin - Whitening Flouride Toothpaste

The final new product for this post, isn't a skincare product but a whitening toothpaste by AP-24. Promising to remove plaque and significantly whiten, I put my Mr Blanc whitening strips away for the month to jump into a review of how well this toothpaste works. 

I've been using this as my only toothpaste for around a month now and I don't think I'd be going back to my usual brand any time soon. Surprisingly, unlike most whitening toothpastes, the Nu Skin one doesn't come with an overwhelming scent or taste. With a subtle minty taste the toothpaste wasn't a chore to use. 

In terms of whitening, I can see a subtle change in the appearance of my teeth however can tell plaque has been significantly reduced. Without the use of peroxides, the usage of this product isn't going to damage my teeth so I will for sure keep using the product!

I love trying out new products as I've discovered three gem's that have made their way to my favourites! Have you tried any of the above? What are your thoughts? Let me know..
