Facial Co HAUL & Reviews: NUXE Clarifying Cream Mask with Rose Extract, ASAP Radiance Serum & ASAP Mineral Lip Colour

Hi guys!

It’s been forever since I’ve done a haul and this is one is at the courtesy of Facial Co Australia’s NO.1 Skincare & Beauty Store, which is basically an online beauty and skincare store with amazing products. They have a huge range of beauty products from big brands and growing ones, so it’s great to have a browse around if you’re wanting to try out new brands. I will also be doing a review on the items I hauled which include: Nuxe Clarifying Cream Mask with Rose Extract, ASAP Radiance Serum and ASAP Pure Mineral Lip Colour.

Claims:

Formulated for all skin type even sensitive, Nuxe Clarifying Cream-Mask with Rose Petals clarifies the complexion and purifies the skin. Finally it also matifies, helps reduce excess sebum while tightening pores. Skin is ideally clarified, cleaned and shine-free.

This mask is probably my new favourite and I would definitely recommend it! I love the creamy consistency of the facial mask which leaves your face feeling like you’ve got nothing on. The best thing is, you only need to keep it on for 5-10 minutes which is essentially half the time of other masks, meaning it’s great for a quick pamper. The mask dries semi clear and has a slight lavender scent which is nice. Another pro is that it is easy to wash off compared to mud masks or other creamy masks I’ve used. After use, my face feels nice and fresh and very smooth – it was able to remove all the gunk and leftover sebum on my face (I couldn’t stop feeling my face after haha). The packaging looks super chic and like frosted glass, but in fact it’s plastic, which is a pro for me as if you’re clumsy it won’t shatter when you drop it! The only con I can think of is that when you apply it it is basically clear, thus it can be hard to gauge how much to use. I can definitely see myself repurchasing this.

Pros:

  • Nice consistency
  • Light on your face
  • Only need to leave it on for 5-10 minutes
  • Nice scent
  • Easy to wash off
  • Leaves face feeling smooth and fresh
  • Remove excess sebum
  • Chic, travel friendly packaging

Cons:

  • Can be hard to gauge how much to use

Rate: 5/5

Effectiveness: 5/5


ASAP Radiance Serum

2015-09-24 10_Fotor4

ASAP Radiance Serum.

Claims:

The ASAP Radiance Serum is a comprehensive skin clearing treatment, designed to prevent and treat pigmentation‚ sun damage and acne.

Blended with a combination of an anti-ageing biomimetic tripeptides‚ a powerful AHA/BHA blend and a skin brightening botanical extract‚ asap radiance serum works to brighten a dull‚ tired complexion‚ boosting cellular renewal for clearer‚ smoother‚ healthier skin.

Helping to inhibit pigmentation from forming whilst increasing production of collagen and elastin‚ this potent formula aids in reducing fine lines and wrinkles whilst hydrating and protecting the skin.

Price: $65 on Facial Co

This product seems to make miracles happen to my skin! I always have used skin products and felt a bit ‘meh’ about them as I never really saw noticeable results, especially not immediately. This serum actually makes my skin feel baby smooth, like silk and almost as soft as my brother’s (hahaha, but seriously his skin is silk). You only need one pump each time you use this product and it is able to cover my whole face, the consistency is quite thick. The scent is sweet and sort of reminds me of soft drinks. I also like the overall packaging of this product, but feel that if this was in your suit case with heaps of other things, it may make a mess as there is no lid for you to close, it is just a pump. I don’t think you should use this product everyday though as I found my skin felt a bit dry/sensitive after using for a few consecutive days.

Pros:

  • Rapid results, evident through just a few uses
  • Smoothed out my skin
  • Nice scent
  • Doesn’t leave face feeling sticky

Cons:

  • Doesn’t have a secure lid; not travel friendly
  • Can be a bit drying if used for consecutive days

Rate: 4.5/5

Effectiveness: 5/5


ASAP Pure Mineral Lip Colour

A quick swatch. I have shade 3 – “Bright Candy Pink”.

Claims:

ASAP Pure Mineral Lip Colour is a conditioning lipstick which offers vibrant colour for a long lasting perfect pout.

Infused with natural ingredients to moisturise, condition and plump the lips, asap pure mineral lip colour is equipped with enhanced hydration for soft, smooth lips with versatile shades that wear beautifully as the day goes on.

Price: $22 on Facial Co

This is the perfect lip colour for Spring and the upcoming Summer for us Aussies! The lipstick is pigmented and glides on smoothly, leaving a nice semi-sheer, lustrous finish. The lipstick is quite moisturising and hence doesn’t cling to any dry patches on my lips. I like how the colour would suit any skin tone and is very natural looking, sort of a “my lips but better” shade. The packaging of the product is also a super gorgeous silver and is super secure, it clicks firmly into place and it’s one that you wouldn’t have to worry about being ruined in your handbag. There are no cons I have found!

Pros:

  • Moisturising and doesn’t cling to dry patches
  • Secure packaging
  • Easy to apply
  • Wearable everyday shade

Rate: 4/5


Colour Angel Shampoo Sample 

I am yet to use this but wouldn’t really be able to provide an accurate review on it since it is just a one use sample. The packaging is super cute though!


Check my “About” if you’d like to know details about my age group, skin type, etc which could help you gauge the effectiveness of this product on your own skin.

A huge thanks to Renee & Facial Co for sending me these products to try out – I would definitely recommend and be personally purchasing off their website in the future as the shipping is super fast, the products are amazing & the service is very reliable.

Hope you guys enjoyed this haul and my reviews!
