Hey all!! a beauty review!

So I'm finally going to start doing some beauty and fashion reviews on here, because I think an actor should always look their best, whether going for an audition or just hanging out! My blog will, in the future, feature some great styles inspired by TV shows I'm currently loving or movies that inspire me!! I think the most important feature about you as an actor, is your skin. So today I'm reviewing skin products which may help you achieve better looking and feeling skin.

But today is not that day! Today I will be reviewing the face cleaning products I was given for christmas that I haven't really used properly until now! so here they are!

The Avene face routine!!!

Ok so! here are my views on this set that I received from my lovely aunt for christmas!


This is the first product on the left. I love it! You spray it on your face and leave for a minute, then pat dry. The mist is pure thermal water so it really is soothing. It isn't only for your face either! I shaved my legs a couple of days ago and whatever soap or razor I had used really irritated the skin on my legs. I simply sprayed a little of the mist on to them and within ten minutes I found my irritation had calmed way down!!! Instantly after spraying though because it's a mist and it's cold you are soothed due to the moisture and temperature of the spray. It just took about ten minutes for my irritation to calm down.
I would definitely rate the mist at a 4/5.


 I love the cleanser as it is really gentle! At first I was not so sure about it as it felt a little heavy when I put it on my face! but nope! i was wrong! the Cleanser is so easy to put on and feels silky and soothing.

For any of you that don't know, Avene is a french brand that incorporates the us of avene thermal spring water for the use on sensitive and irritated skins. That is why I find the cleanser so soothing! The cleanser rids me of nearly all my makeup (sometimes I have very stubborn mascara!) and makes my skin feel very smooth and clean.  I would definitely rate this cleanser a 4/5. 

Extremely rich compensating cream.

The 'rich compensating cream' however, I am not fond of. It feels very thick on my skin (which is mostly dry) but even on my dry skin the cream made me break out the first time I used it, as it just felt heavy and blocked my pores. I do use this cream sometimes but only on occasions when my skin is scarily dry and flakey and I use it sparingly. 
So this cream only gets a 2/5.

Overall I think I'd have to give this set a 3.5/5. The cream is too heavy and at first so was the cleanser. Now I find myself using the cleanser more and more, and I'm in love with the mist spray. 

Does anyone else have these products? what do you think? x
