K-GLO Sheet Masks

If you hadn't guessed by now, I am a huge fan of K-Beauty brands and I am over the moon that as the weeks pass by, more and more brands are becoming available to try. Brands such as touch in SOL, Tony Moly and even Missha now being widely available. As trends go K-Beauty is one which is growing and for me, what intrigues me is just how far, technologically advanced Korean Beauty is. The latest brand to arrive is K-Glo and they come with the tagline “from Korea with love”. K-Glo is an award-winning Vegan brand who are now available in Boots.
K-GLO Sheet Masks
Offering masks for the face, hands, eyes and feet, I was kindly sent four of the K-Glo Sheets masks to try, each being incredibly affordable at just £4.99, a lot less than I had been expecting to pay for these masks.

The first mask is the K-Glo Smoothing Coconut Bio-Cellulose Eye Mask and it is made of naturally fermented coconut juice and formulated with top skincare ingredients and traditional Korean skincare wisdom such as Birch Sap to revitalise and deliver a nutritive boost to the skin.
K-GLO® Smoothing Coconut Bio-Cellulose Mask is an intensive all-round eye treatment to nourish and plump the skin, leaving you with smoother and brighter skin. 

Ideal for dark circles, wrinkles and puffiness, this mask not only fits under the eye but it goes above the eye as well, so it pretty much looks like the mask you would wear at night time, but with holes for the eyes.
K-GLO Smoothing Sheet Mask
What I love about this mask is just how soothing it feels on the skin.  This is my favourite mask of the four and definitely one that I would repurchase.

The second mask is the K-GLO® Balancing Coconut Bio-Cellulose Face Mask. This mask is a purifying treatment that calms uneven and breakout-prone skin to restore youthful radiance.

K-GLO® Balancing Coconut Bio-Cellulose Face Mask is a revitalising treatment that replenishes dull skin and lightens the appearance of dark spots.
This mask is again packed full of amazing ingredients which include Coconut Juice, Aloe Vera and Witch Hazel, thankfully the witch hazel isn't too potent it makes your eyes water. 
K-GLO Balancing Sheet Mask
This mask is ideal for oily, blemish-prone and blotchy skin and if you have the sniffles, it really helps to clear your sinuses, which isn't a primary use of the mask, but it is an added bonus.

The third mask within this collection is the K-GLO® Hydrating Coconut Bio-Cellulose Mask and it is the kind of mask you need to have in your collection when you really want to give your skin a good pampering.
K-GLO® Hydrating Coconut Bio-Cellulose Mask is an intense hydration boost for softer, smoother and more youthful-looking skin.

This mask is perfect for those who have dehydrated, rough and dry skin and it contains Coconut Juice, Sea Buckthorn and Hyaluronic Acid. 
K-GLO Hydrating Sheet Mask
On the skin, again the mask is incredibly soothing and it really does give your skin a hydration boost.

The final mask is the K-GLO® Brightening Coconut Bio-Cellulose Mask and if you have dull looking skin, then this is the mask for you.
K-GLO® Brightening Coconut Bio-Cellulose Mask is a revitalizing treatment that replenishes dull skin and lightens the appearance of dark spots.

This mask is ideal for those with dark spots, uneven skin tone or dull and tired skin. This mask is packed full of amazing ingredients which my skin absolutely loves and they include Coconut Juice, Green tea and Niacinamide. 
K-GLO Brightening Sheet Mask
For me, this is the perfect hangover mask, when you are particularly hanging and everything aches and needs some love and attention, this is the mask you need.

These masks are an incredible value for money and because the masks are made of Bio Cellulose, they are soothing on the skin, don't irritate and tend to stick to the skin so much better than other sheet masks that I have used.  I love that there is a mask for every concern, including one that I haven't tried which is the K-GLO® Firming Coconut Bio-Cellulose Mask which is described as being a super anti-ageing treatment to boost skin elasticity and smooth out fine lines for a firmer and more lifted look. As well as masks for the face, you will also find two further masks which are the K-GLO® Nourishing Hand Mask and the K-GLO® Exfoliating AHA Foot Mask Socks, both of which I am hoping will come to Boots*.

Herbivore Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trio

Herbivore caught my eye on Instagram with their Calm Soaking Salts, which I still haven't got my hands on, but instead, I picked up the Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trio* in the January Sales and what a trio it is. 
Herbivore Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trio
Herbivore Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trio
If you haven't come across the brand, Herbivore is one which uses ingredients for a purpose and they range from French pink clay to Brazilian gemstones. However, what I really loved was the following statement 
" we also create our products with personal rejuvenation and a little indulgence in mind. We believe that daily bathing and skincare rituals should be enjoyable — a way to carve out some much-needed downtime in your hectic routine. From thoughtfully designed packaging and labels that really allow our ingredients to shine through, to intoxicating scents and luxurious textures, we truly want you to love your skincare and bathing routines" 

Something I couldn't agree with more. Herbivore was founded by husband and wife Alex Kummerow and Julia Wills with a mission to create all-natural skin care that delivers tangible results. Inspired by crystals, colours and Hibiscus tea, most of the products are still conceived in the Seattle kitchen to this day by husband and wife Alex Kummerow and Julia Wills.

The Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trip contains Coco Rose Body Polish 112ml, Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist 30ml, Coco Rose Lip Conditioner 5g (£39) and it has been a great introduction to the brand.

The Coco Rose Body Polish is described as being a highly moisturising and gently exfoliating blend of Virgin Coconut Oil and delicately floral Moroccan Rose and it smells just absolutely incredible and the texture is even better.  
Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish
There are five main ingredients within this body polish which includes:
  • Virgin Coconut Oil: Rich in fatty acids, Lauric Acid, and proteins to provide intensive hydration.
  • Moroccan Rose: Moroccan Rose helps increase moisture in the skin. It also smells incredible -- light, floral and sweet.
  • Shea Butter: Deeply moisturizing and skin softening.
  • Pink Clay: In addition to providing Coco Rose with its rosy colour, Pink Clay adds to its benefits by providing a gentle skin detox.
  • Sugar: Gently exfoliating and skin softening.
On the skin, the texture is really finely ground and whilst it is slightly abrasive. I use a spatula from another product to use the amount I need and once it has been applied to the skin, you simply leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing off.  This is one of the best body polishes I have used in such a long time and I have already bought a second one.

The second product within the trio is the Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist and for me, a face mist is an absolute must-have product. I always ensure I have a mist on my bedside table and on my desk at work.
Herbivore Coco Rose Hydrating Facial Mist
From Herbivore we have a facial mist which is described as being formulated for all skin types and it is both hydrating and refreshing and it has three main ingredients.

  • Coconut Water: In Hawaiian, Coconut Water is known as “Noelani,” which translates to “dew from the heavens." Instantly hydrating and replenishing due to high levels of amino acids, Coconut Water contains skin-refreshing cytokines and lauric acid to refresh and hydrate skin.
  • Hibiscus Flower Extract: Rich in malic and citric acid to provide natural light exfoliation resulting in a visually more even skin tone. A natural humectant, Hibiscus Flower Extract promotes firmness and elasticity in the skin.
  • Rose Water: Steam distilled from thousands of petals per ounce of beautiful red Moroccan roses, our rose water helps to hydrate and refresh skin. 
As you can imagine from the ingredients, the scent is just incredible and I've become quite obsessed with it ever since I bought it, to the point that I have a backup.  What I love about the mist is that it doesn't soak you through when it is spritzed and it is incredibly light, but enough to refresh and hydrate the skin.

Finally, we have the Coco Rose Lip Conditioner and if you are a fan of lip balms, then this is an absolute must try product. 
Herbivore Coco Rose Lip Conditioner
Herbivore describes the Lip Conditioner as being a Lightweight and deeply moisturizing lip hydrating treatment and this time there are two main ingredients which are:
  • Virgin Coconut Oil: Virgin Coconut Oil is rich in fatty acids, Lauric Acid and proteins to provide intensive hydration to the lips. Also, smells and tastes delicious—a true all-natural coconut scent and flavour. 
  • Moroccan Rose Absolute: Moroccan Rose increases hydration. It also smells and tastes incredible. Light, floral, and sweet.
The scent of rose within this product is really subtle rather than being overpowering, but it is still just wonderful. Firm to the touch, you need to run your finger over the product to melt it, which it does pretty quickly and because of its light pink colour, it can be used as a stand-alone product or you can apply it over your lipstick for added hydration.

This has been an incredible trio of products, from which I have already repurchased all of them in bigger sizes because I have really enjoyed using them.  Next on my list is the bath salts and the Lapis Balancing Facial Oil which sounds divine.
Herbivore products are truly natural, vegan, and cruelty-free. They contain no synthetic ingredients— this includes no dyes, no fragrances, and no synthetic preservatives. Additionally, they are concentrated blends containing no fillers and using the minimum amount of ingredients necessary to achieve the maximum results. All of the packaging is recyclable and reusable too.
