Retro Post : Anne French Deep Cleansing Milk


I always used to use this as a teenager and when I recently spotted this on the very bottom shelf at my local Boots I took a step back in time and purchased it (£3.99).

Step back in time


I had forgotten how good this stuff is, nice and easy to use and of course that lovely fresh smell.  It also contains a light moisturiser so leaves my (quite dry) skin slightly moisturised after use which is a bonus.

I used it to cleanse one half of my face (not the eyes) and on the over I used my Clarins cleanser.  Both cleansers seemed to remove the same about, but the Anne French one is a third of the cost :) Also it is just really nice to use,  it's a milk so feels refreshing on the skin and you really don't need very much.

I am definitely going to keep buying it, so glad I rediscovered it.  Next I'll be seeking out Ponds Cold Cream &  Flex Shampoo!!

What's your favourite retro beauty product?

Day 24 -Cuvée Royal 24hr Cream Mousse "skin care with QT40, independently proven by scientific studies."

So quite a few repeats but it makes sense as you need to use skincare for a few days.  Personally I like the advent calendar as it has focused on just skin care and I will genuinely use all of the products, however I may save them for holidays and then use the same serum for 2 or 3 days.

Christmas unboxed!

Jean Pierre Collagen Mask

I do love using face masks as a way to relax and unwind and at the moment I am well into sheet masks - quick, easy and no mess - check out my post HERE on the sheet masks by B Beauty Limited.

However on a recent trip to TK Maxx, Hedge End, Southampton I picked up this mask by Jean Pierre.   As you may already know I am a big fan of Korean skincare and, luckily for me, TK Maxx seem to have a few Korean Brands coming in - thanks to daisydoll65 who informs me TK Maxx Cardiff has a whole Korean Beauty section :)

The mask in the piccie above is often referred to as a Plastic or Rubber type of mask.  In case you don't know these masks come in powder form, which you mix with water and then apply to your face and they set - the idea being once they set your skin absorbs the beneficial ingredients.  I was hoping for plumped up and moisturised skin...

I followed the instructions and mixed up the whole lot (mistake), it was blue,  smelt nice and it went on OK.  I say OK as it was a bit lumpy despite my best efforts to give it all a good mix.  There was also far too much product though for one face! and once mixed you can't keep it as it sets.  So  a tip from me would be to initially mix up a 1/3 and see how you get on.

Mask - pre mixing

Mask - with water added and stirred



Still is was fun to use and relatively cheap about, approx  £2.99.  Not sure I would purchase it again though as it was a bit messy to use and I can't say my skin felt or looked improved after.

However the Collagen/Rubber Mask did make for you one scary looking beauty blogger - be good to hang up in the window at Halloween!
