I got my second batch of products for review from Skin18 and it was lying in my hometown since long. For those who missed my previous post on Skin18, visit here! I had totally forgotten about it until I saw it in my room. Being home means being utterly lazy to do anything at all. I don’t even bother moving from my bed until hubby dearest wants me to cook. 😛 Amidst the clouds of lethargy, I felt the need to pamper myself a bit. I planned a parlor visit but then, the slothful me could never make it. So I picked few products from Skin18 for a deep cleansing session at home. Read on my review on the deep cleansing trio from Skin18!
The Trio from Skin18
Products Used for the Deep Cleansing
- Luke Mugwort Nose Cleansing Strip
- Luke Vitamin Hydrogel Eye Patch
- Purederm Strawberry Yogurt Pack
My Take on The Products
1. Luke Mugwort Nose Cleansing Strip
I cleansed my face with my usual cleanser and started off with the nose and eye patch. Pollution and stress has taken a toll on my skin. It’s been a long time since I had a clean-up and so there were little whiteheads on my nose. So I put on this vitamin hydrogel nose strip from Skin18. It’s very easy to apply and removes dirt effectively. All I had to do was peel the protective layer and wet the strip to apply it on the nose. As it dried, it felt tighter and after 20 minutes, I took it off. This wonder strip ripped off all the whiteheads, leaving my nose shiny and smooth
2. Luke Vitamin Hydrogel Eye Patch
At the same time, I was putting on the vitamin eye patch. I’ve already used the collagen eye pack from Skin18, which I mentioned in my previous post. It felt so soothing and cool on the over-sensitive under-eyes. The vitamin hydrogel eye patch from Skin18 is thick and damp and designed to cover the under-eyes. Sitting for long hours in front of the computer, I’ve got panda eyes! 😛 I try my best to keep dark-circles away but it always comes back. 🙁 I always wanted something as simple as this eye patch to treat the delicate skin under the eyes. After keeping it for sometime, the strip becomes thinner and the ingredients get absorbed in the skin nicely. It feels cool and has a nourished feeling after removing it. It has ingredients like castor oil and kaolin clay which are really good for the skin. But I was disappointed to see it has parabens too! 🙁
3. Purederm Strawberry Yogurt Pack
The last but not the least, I tried the strawberry yogurt pack from Skin18. This comes in a single use sachet which has enough quantity to cover the entire face and neck even if the product is applied liberally. This pack has a creamy consistency actually feels and looks like yogurt. It has a mild strawberry scent which is not too dominant. I spread it out evenly on my face and neck and left it to work for 20 minutes. After massaging it for few minutes, to enable better absorption, I wiped it using cotton pads. Then washed off the residue with warm water followed by cold water. It made my skin supple and healthy-looking. It moisturized my skin really well and thus I skipped the moisturizer. This pack soothes irritated skin and reduces redness. However, I haven’t experienced it since I did not have any of these skin issues.
Let me sum it up stating the pros and cons of this deep cleansing trio from Skin18.
♥ Simple and cute packaging
♥ Easy to use strips
♥ Effectively clears the blackheads and whiteheads
♥ Nourishes the under-eyes
♥ Moisturizes the skin

🙁 The yogurt pack does not have any brightening effects
🙁 Not easily available in India
