About a month ago now on Twitter, the Purity Skincare Twitter page asked if any bloggers would like to be sent some of their range to test out and review. Of course, I like many bloggers, jumped at the chance. They said they would love to send me some products and I expected maybe a few samples, or one or two full sized products. In fact, what I received was 6 of their 7 products, all in full sizes. I was amazed! I received...

Today I am going to be reviewing the Facial exfoliator and deep pore cleanser, and the anti-aging serum and mask.

Of all the products I was sent, the facial exfoliator was my favourite. I always like to read every last detail on a product before trying it out and I was so pleasantly surprised to find this contained ground coconut shell. I don't think I've ever had a product with ground coconut shell in before! As well as this it has coconut oil, sweet almond oil and aloe vera, to leave your skin cleaner, softer and brighter.

This was a lovely product to use - although every time I used it I did wish on all the fairies, that I would somehow get a gorgeous smell of coconut shinning through, but alas, they are all really fragrance free as advertised. It's a really gentle exfoliator to use, feels incredibly creamy and the ground coconut shell is the perfect size to do it's job without being abrasive! It also left my skin feeling very soft afterwards, which is exactly what we want!

The Anti-Aging Serum and Mask took some getting used to. I adore using face masks, in fact I do about three a week! But I've never come across a mask which was so liquidy and this was very slippery to use. It is described as a powerful treatment to boost your skin's natural regeneration process. Sweet almond oil and aloe vera combine with cranberry seed oil, rich in omega 3, 6 and 9, to help repair the skin and assist with moisture retention. There's also rosewater in there which tones the skin and antioxidant vitamin E which improves and protects the look and feel of skin. 

The packaging suggests applying a very generous layer over the skin and allowing to do it's business for 10 minutes before washing off. Alternatively you can leave it on over night for an extra-intensive mask. I decided to stick to my usual when it comes to face masks and I washed it off after ten minutes. During application, as I said, it was very slippery. But I found by the end of the end of the 10 minutes it had dried; almost rubberised. Once I washed it off I found my skin very soft.
