Luke Mugwort Nose Cleansing Strip 

I received this product from skin18.com for review purposes. This is a nose strip containing Mugwort, used for cleansing the pores on the nose, removing the blackheads, tightening the pores as well as soothing the tightened pores in case of any irritation. 

It also contains Vitamin E, aloe vera, licorice root and Hamamelis Virginiana. The packaging looks cute and attractive. It is a small packet as it contains only one strip which is good for a one time use only. The small packaging also makes it very travel friendly. It also has instructions in English on the back. 

When I first opened the pack, I noticed that the strip is sticking to a plastic liner. The instructions state to clean and wet the nose well as the strip will not stick to a dry nose. When I peeled off the strip, I noticed that it was not only very thin but it also resembled an ordinary paper sticker. Anyway when I applied it on my nose, I noticed a strong smell of Mugwort and it took sometime for the scent to completely disappear. I did not mind the smell as I love Mugwort but for those who are sensitive to scents be aware that the smell is quite strong.

After 10-20 minutes, the strip started to feel dry and stiff, indicating that it is ready to be removed. I then carefully managed to peel off the strip starting from the edges. My nose looked neat and clean to me.
Final Thoughts 

This nose strip was easy to apply and remove. After removing the strip from my nose, I looked at what it had collected and could see all the gunk on the strip. My nose looked smooth, clean and even the pores looked small. I feel like it has removed a lot of dirt and oil from my nose. Also I did not experience any irritation or redness. Overall a great nose strip which works really well and comes with an affordable price tag too. Thank you Skin18 for supplying me with this nose strip! I enjoyed using it very much. #skin18 #skin18review #skin18challenge

My Vichy Skincare #VichyWorksForMe 

I was recently selected to take part in the Vichy Skincare Super Panel hosted by the ChickAdvisor Review Club. I was super excited to try these amazing products!

The box itself was so pretty this time! I was given the Vichy Normaderm line to combat acne, pimples as well as to fade away blemishes.

● Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel

This ultra  gentle soap – free, alcohol – free cleaning gel deeply cleanses sebum & impurities without over drying or irritating the skin. It’s ingredients have purifying, anti-bacterial & keratolytic actions to help prevent new imperfections from popping up. Retails at CAD 19.95

This cleanser smells amazing! My skin felt clean and fresh after using it. It cleanses deeply without stripping moisture from my face. I did not experience any dryness or irritation. It lathers nicely and does a great job of removing makeup too.

● Vichy Normaderm Pore Tightening Lotion

A toner specifically formulated for oily & acne prone skin with glycolic and salicylic acid to unclog , tighten pores and purify skin. Retails at CAD 19.95

This toner also smells nice. The smell is not overwhelming and fades away after application. Again I did not experience any dryness, burning or irritation with this product. My skin felt soft and refreshed after using this. It seems very effective in cleaning my pores and keeping the oil production under control.

● Vichy Normaderm Corrective Anti Acne Treatment

Combines 1.5% Salicylic Acid, LHA, Phe Resorcinol and new Air Licium technology to treat and prevent all signs of acne. Retails at CAD 29.95

This treatment is perfect for my oily, acne prone skin. It does not feel oily or greasy upon application and absorbs quickly. A little goes a long way. My skin feels smooth and matte. Completely shine free. It also has a light refreshing scent and has a gel like texture. It works well as a gentle moisturizer on my skin as well. I like the packaging with the pump. The product does not get wasted nor does it get contaminated.

Overall I am loving my new skincare routine. My acne is already fading and my pores look smaller. My skin looks and feels smoother, softer and clearer. I highly recommend this line if you have oily , acne prone skin. Thank you so much VichyCanada and ChickAdvisor for giving me this wonderful opportunity to try. #GotItFree #VichyWorksForMe
