Joyselin included a letter with instructions on how and when to use these three products, along with a promo code, which will be revealed at the end of this post.
The instructions were:
- Toner - Oil Leviate. Use daily, every morning and night.
- Serum - Shrink and tighten+. Pump 2-3 pea sized drops onto your palm. Apply over your face and neck using circular motions until fully absorbed.
- Weekly Mask - Glow and shine. Apply a thick layer evenly on face and neck, leave on for 5-10 minutes. Gently massage with wet hand in up and outwards circular motions for 5-10 seconds. Rinse well with plenty of water.
Starting with the Oil Leviate...
|You only need a tiny amount!|
Next, we have the Shrink and Tighten+ serum...
You may be able to guess what this does from the name - it shrinks and tightens large pores! This is a glass bottle with a rubber tip, which I thought was quite interesting, as I've never come across a bottle such as this. Anyway, this product took slightly longer to be absorbed than the oil leviate. I think it probably takes about 10-20 seconds for the product to be fully absorbed.
|Quite runny in comparison to the Oil Leviate|
I'm pleased and quite excited to say that this HAS worked on my skin. I've noticed that my pores have indeed shrunk. They are not as deep as they used to be, and they're smaller width wise. I wish I was a genius photographer so I could show before and after shots. Unfortunately I'm not, so you'll just have to take my word for it. I did measure a few of my pores prior to using this, and my pores were about 1mm in diameter, and they are now just teeny tiny dots that are about 0.5mm! This is a product I'd definitely recommend if you have large pores.
Last but not least, the glow and shine mask...
I've only used it twice so far (once a week as per the instructions) and I absolutely LOVE it. This mask is meant to brightening and whitening your skin tone, exfoliate and unclog pores, minimize pores, control oil, fade scars and keep acne at bay. Another wonder product (at least it is on paper)!
Unfortunately, I haven't actually noticed much "glow and shine". Actually, I lie... I noticed quite a lot of "shine" at the end of the day :(
But! I really liked how smooth my skin felt and how refreshing this mask is. It contains exfoliants that explains why my skin felt so smooth after using this, as well as menthol (my fav skincare ingredient) which explains the refreshing feeling. It also smells quite nice... I want to say fruity... but it's not really, although it contains papaya enzymes! This mask had a bit of a gritty texture, as expected since it has exfoliants. It took about 3 minutes to dry and felt a bit tight on my face once fully dry (which is the norm for face masks... at least for me it is). It wasn't all that hard to completely remove all traces of mask from my face, which I also love. Nothing more annoying than having to spend 5 minutes scrubbing dried gunk off your face!
Anyway, I think this is a great mask for exfoliating and I'm really hoping that this will help fade my unsightly acne scars with prolonged use!
