ESPA Essential Cleansing Mask

As I have a combination and congested skin type I thought this luxury mask was a must try, here's what it claims:

A deeply cleansing face mask to calm, ease congestion and balance.
An intensely nourishing, cleansing clay mask, formulated to calm and clarify skin. Mineral-rich Kaolin Clay and antiseptic Rose Geranium help clear excess oils, impurities and congestion. Benzoin nourishes, while soothing Rose Damascena and Marshmallow soften and calm.
Suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive, oily, combination and congested.

The ESPA mask is very nicely packed and comes in a nice glass pot and a marble looking lid, the texture is a medium silky clay that smooths on easily and smells pleasant and calming.

I smoothed on a thick layer of the clay as advised, on went the candles and relaxing music for 20 minutes for it to work its wonders!

I washed the mask off with warm water and then splashed  on a little cold ! After towel drying I noticed instantly how silky smooth my skin felt , my oily patches had settled down and my skin was visibly clearer I have used this product three times and have noticed a great improvement especially in the amount of blackheads around the nose area .

I love this product even though a little pricey. I would recommend this to anyone with congested skin types.

You can purchase ESPA Essential Cleansing mask here at Espa for £27.50 55ml Jar

Another product from my fantastic Glamour Edit Latest in Beauty Box.    L'OREAL Super Liner Gel INTENZA.

What it claims:  L'oreal claims that this gel eyeliner lasts for a staggering 24 hours and is waterproof.

Upon opening this lovely golden and black box I found a small glass jar with a shiny golden lid also included is a eyeliner brush to apply . I have to say before I even try this out it looked rather luxurious and expensive.
The brush is a good length so you can really get into the corners of  the eyes and glide across with ease, this is a asset to this product as I find most liquid or gel eyeliners have a very short applicator making it difficult to apply, this worked perfect! 
I smoothed my brush across the black gel which contains small sparkles of gold and carefully glided across my eyelid this eyeliner would be fantastic for the smokey eye effect or just day to day wear. 
It claims to last 24 hours, i found it started to fade after 12 hours but this will not stop me buying it. Fantastically brilliant and glamorous I will definitely buy this again and will stay a firm favourite in my beauty chest.
