Pink & Green Organic Marzipan Body Souffle to Nourish the Driest of Skins

Hello Beauties,

Pink & Green is an organic line of products for people with the most sensitive of skins. Made by Carol Alpin a holistic therapist who knows the real importance of self care and making some time for yourself in today’s busy world and especially from the social media train has really taken over our lives. It genuinely can be very hard to switch it off.

Self care is woven into the fabric of Pink&Green – Pink to represent women and green to represent the environment and of course the green, organic products that she uses in her brand. 

So with self care in mind the Marzipan Souffle only has 2 ingredients – Beautiful Organic Shea Butter which treats so many skin issues like dry sore skin, stretch marks, Sunburn, skin cracks, eczema it will help restore elasticity to skin so great for older skins too. I do sometimes use this neat on my skin and it really is a skin wonder for me. 

The other ingredient is organic cold pressed unrefined  plum kernel oil which funnily enough was used in the master chef final too! So perhaps a now and upcoming beauty and food ingredient as that is where the light marzipan fragrance comes from in the souffle. Very clever as then there is no fragrance oil in this product to irritate anyone with sore or red skin.

Texture wise for me it is not quite as light as a souffle but to me that also doesn’t really matter because it melts so beautifully onto the skin, firstly into the lovely raw oils and then it disappears straight into the skin leaving it silky soft and nourished. No residue or heavier oils left sitting on top of the skin, no paraben, sulphates, fillers just pure silky skin heaven! 

This is an eco friendly and Carol encourages you to reuse up your containers which I love as seeing our oceans struggle and the wildlife that live there on such a huge scale right now is just heartbreaking, the time for change is right now ..

That is it for now everyone,

Dr Dennis Gross Extra Strength Peel…Amazing!

Hello everyone,

I have been using the Dr Dennis Extra Strength Pads on and off for about a year now .. they are a serious addiction because you get that instant gratification of better skin immediately after using (well I do!).

It is like washing all the dust and grime that has been clinging to your windows all winter off and it lets the day light in and everything looks and feels so much smoother, better and brighter!

This is what these pads do they take off all the old skin glued and clinging to our face, raised skin around pores, bumps under your skin, sallowness, clean out fine lines and wrinkles making them look and feel smaller,  therefore they reveal a much more youthful and glowing self ..

It amazes me how much old skin we have glued onto our face, packing out wrinkles and generally making us look older .. Dr Dennis Gross is a real hero product that takes years off your face every time you use them!

The first pad, the one that exfoliates is about the only pad on the market (and the strongest you can get for home use) that uses several different acids to tackle anti-ageing on the skin and to take off raised skin, make pores smaller, smooth skin out and make it glow .. it takes 2 minutes .. once my face is done I take this over the back of my hands and my elbows (waste not want not) .

This also tackles dark spots, firmness, uneven skin tone, spots, scarring, dullness and it is fantastic on your neck and chest too.

The second pad neutralises the first pad and gives the skin a power packed does of Vitamin C & peptides into new freshly exfoliated skin ..  once this has soaked into your skin you are free to use your regular skin routine after. (same thing take it over any dry areas even tho you think the pad is dry there is still some product on there)

All of this takes you about 5 minutes and in that 5 minutes I was blown away by my results .. skin was smoother so much fresher .. I watched this happen before my eyes with the first wipe .. the glow just appeared and it has stayed ever since. Hence my addiction!!

I should say I am clever with these and I cut them in half and make them last me twice as long .. as much s they are pricey they are worth every single penny .. yes sir I loves them and they love me back lol!

If you have never tried Dr Dennis Gross extra strength peel pads then I urge you to try .. at a starting try me price of £15 you really have everything to gain and nothing to lose .. just even better skin that you imagined!

You can try these pads out for yourself  HERE and I highly recommend you do as they are worth every penny!

That is it for now folks

take care
