You might have seen pictures of these brightly coloured skincare goodies on Instagram before? Or possibly online when you were doing your most recent asos haul? I was kindly sent a bunch of Anatomicals products to try out. I love the bright and cheery packaging and all of the products have funny names and slogans! They’re very affordable and can be bought at asos and Superdrug.
Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer*
I was so excited when I saw these in the package, I’ve been wanting eye patches for ages! I’ve been using The Body Shops’s Elderflower Eye Gel and as much as I love it, it’s not as satisfying as popping some eye patches on! You get three sets of patches per pack. These patches have quite a strong, clean smell but it isn’t obvious when they’re on your face. I’d advise opening them over the sink due to the excess liquid in the packet which keeps the patches hydrated. They’re super easy to apply and had an instant cooling effect. They stick really well and didn’t slide down my face. I kept them on for the recommended half an hour so they’re perfect to pop on as soon as you wake up and by the time you’re done your breakfast they’ll be ready to take off. I didn’t have any reaction to these so they’re suitable for sensitive skin. My eye area looked considerably brighter when I took these off and my bags were definitely reduced. I can’t wait to keep using these to see if they help my dark under eye circles!
We Never Forget A Face Memorably Good Daily Moisturiser*
I’m on the hunt for a daily moisturiser and I love that this has spf 15. It’s non fragranced so great for sensentive skin. Though I will say there’s a slight smell of suncream but I like this as it makes me think of summer. It’s light weigh so perfect for applying under makeup. This moisturiser also contains co-enzyme Q10 which is an antioxidant for skinfirming so it helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles! I really like how this feels on my skin, although I haven’t seen a major moisturising effect yet I’m looking forward to continuing trying this out.
The Buff Stuff Citrus Body Scrub*
I love body scrubs! Especially coming into the warmer weather, I am forever exfoliating to get silky smooth legs in time for summer when I live in shorts. This scrub is scented with grapefruit and smells amazing! You also get a lot of product for the price! As much as I loved the smell and feel of this on my skin, I don’t feel it overly exfoliated my legs. It has a gel like texture, with very small and not that many exfoliating beads. I was a little disappointed by this but I’d continue using this as the smells is a great wake me up for my morning shower. It might work better for someone with smoother, less dry skin though!
I was sent three face masks, Hawaii five-glow tropical hydrating face mask, the hottie tottie is never spotty anti blemish face mask and “get outta my face dirtball” apricot face scrub. I used the Hawaii five-glow mask the other night and really liked it so I’m looking forward to trying the other two! The tropical mask is white and has a very thick consistency. It applied really easily and smells like a mix of coconut and tropical fruit. It definitely makes you feel like you’re on holiday! This mask is pretty thick, so it would be best to apply when you have some time to sit and relax rather than when you’re moving around as you’d risk getting it everywhere! I left it on for twenty minutes and my skin tingled a little so I’m not sure my sensitive skin 100% liked it but I had no reaction so it seems to be okay! I then rinsed it off with luke warm water. My skin felt very hydrated and looked soft and glowy. Due to its thick consistency I don’t think this would work for those with oily skin but it would be great to try for those of you with dry skin looking for a nice hydrating boost.
Snog Me Senseless mints*
These are the cutest little pack of mints and I love the name! Definitely made me giggle! They’re perfectly sized for popping in your handbag and due to having two lids you avoid the risk of the pack opening and getting mints all over your bag! They’re also sugar free! These are going to be a great handbag essential.
I hope you enjoyed this review. I love how colourful and affordable these products are. I’ll definitely be picking up a few more packs of the Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer patches! Have you tried anything from Anatomicals?
