Although this long weekend’s weather started off a bit bleak, I wasn’t too bothered since I kicked it off by having brunch with my high school friend James who is visiting from Calgary. I really enjoyed catching up with him and chatting about things that have and have not changed over the years! I’ve been blessed with so many visitors in town in the past few months and I sure hope that more will come as my old friends find more flexibility in time.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with Delizioso Skincare and try some of their products. Delizioso is a skincare brand based in London, Ontario and they specialize in 100% natural and cruelty free products. Although this is my first time blogging about a skincare product, I do have experience in this field because I’ve followed careful skincare routines since my early teenage years when I had severe acne. Because my skin is especially oily during the summertime, I asked to sample Delizioso’s Lacuma Regenerating Serum and Dead Sea Mud Mask since they both combat oiliness.
The Dead Sea Mud Mask is made from kelp and mineral mud, which is why it has a thick and grainy texture. It is a powerful multi-use product because it cleanses, hydrates, detoxifies, and tightens the skin! This mask felt great on my face and it did not cause any stinging or irritations. Removing the mask was a bit difficult though, and the towel I used to wipe by face got stained by the product – I had to throw it in the washer to get it clean again. But asides from being hard to remove, my skin immediately felt firmer and fresher after using this mask. It’s definitely one of the more effective masks I’ve used and I’m happy to include it in my routine!
I was interested in the Lacuma Regenerating Serum because it claims to reduce acne scarring and also brighten your skin. Since I do have some acne scarring areas, I thought I’d give this product a try. This serum is very light and has a fresh floral scent to it. After massaging it onto my face, this product immediately absorbs into my skin and doesn’t feel heavy at all. I started using this product nightly, and a week later my skin did feel more rejuvenated! It is hard for me to distinguish how much my skin has brightened though, since it is the midst of summer and I spend a decent amount of time outdoors. Also I know that complexion takes time to brighten up, so it may take a few more weeks until results are more noticeable. Nevertheless, I am satisfied with where this serum is taking my skin and I will make note if I found any further improvements!
