Raspberry Hydrating DIY facial

I am not sure if you have heard of Dr Renaud's Skin Care before but its actually fabulously effective and does exactly (and much more!) than what it says on the kit.

This particular one is called the Raspberry Hydrating Cosmekit which contains sample/travel size products from the Hydrating Range, good enough sizes to try out before you make a full purchase.

All the products come in this travel like mug. But it's not without a purpose as one part of the kit is creating a mousse mask which foams up and needs to be shaken inside the mug before applying on the skin. How cool is that? I felt like a biology student for a bit trying out an experiment :)
The first step is to apply the Exfoliating/Cleansing gel which comes with minuscule exfoliating particles that cleanse and exfoliate the skin at the same time, leaving it squeaky clean yet hydrated and supple at the same time. This is a delight to use on its own in the evening and would work great for combination/dry skin types. 

The second step is to apply the Mask, which you are meant to mix with water and then shake up to create a soft foam which can then be applied quite easily to the face.

This again leaves the skin very radiant and complements the exfoliating cleanser that is used prior to this quite well. I leave it on for 10 minutes and it works wonders at quenching dry skin!

The last step is the Massage Cream which is extremely hydrating yet soft to move on the skin for a nice DIY at home facial. Once it sinks into the skin, it leaves it soft like never before and glowing obviously after the whole regime. I think I am tempted to buy a full size version of this as its so difficult to find a good massage cream that is hydrating and does not break out combination-oily skin.

The entire process took less than 20 minutes but the effect was simply gorgeous!

These kits are available for different skin types if the Raspberry Hydration one does not catch your fancy. These retail for £20 each which is great considering that full size products cost £30 a pop and you might want to have a good try before you invest in some. 

The kit did not get used up the first time and although I disposed off the foam mask as that was obviously not re-usable, the Massage Cream and the Exfoliator/Cleanser lasted me for one whole week.
