I love a pampering day at the spa as much as the next girl but who has time to schedule regular appointments and shell out large sums of money that could be better spent purchasing products you actually get to keep! NSPA Beauty Rituals is an award winning line of beauty essentials created and used by UK spa experts. These skin enhancing products are designed to bring the spa experience to your own home with formulas that boost the complexion for a radiant, healthy glow. The collection includes luxurious products for the face and body, all of which are Dermatologist approved and paraben free.
Many of you may be thinking that I have tried and tested a lot of skincare brands and you are absolutely correct, but truth be told I do use them all! My beauty stash may look like a department store counter with an array of serums, elixirs and creams just waiting to be slathered on but I like to switch up my routine regularly and I alternate products based on my skin’s changing needs.
The NSPA Hot Cloth Polish was a first for me but I am all for rejuvenating my skin and buffing away dead cells. This treatment consists of a cleanser or “polish” and a muslin cloth.
To use: you simply apply 1-2 pumps on dry skin, massage over the face and neck, rinse the muslin cloth under hot water, wring out and gently wipe the product away.
The cleanser is ultra thick, creamy and smooth with a consistency that feels like a combination of fluffy foam and rich lotion. It does not produce suds so I recommend using a makeup wipe prior to applying the cleanser or you may end up with a messy paste that stains the cloth.
The formula distributes very well and hydrates with a blend of shea butter, sweet almond oil, vitamin E, apricot, neroli and avocado oil which is one of my favorite ingredients for soft skin.
The cleanser efficiently removes dirt, makeup and impurities and is safe for all skin types including sensitive skin. As you apply the warm cloth to your face it feels invigorating and calming while it gently exfoliates. The heat from the muslin works like a mild steam treatment to open pores and refresh the face for a healthy, dewy glow. The process also seems to make my skin more receptive to product absorption.
The cloth has a light interwoven texture which provides decent exfoliation and although quite thin it is durable and machine washable. I think this concept is great and I like that the product leaves my skin feeling supple as opposed to dry and stripped.
The Exotically Creamy Coconut Body Butter infused with natural vitamins boosts moisture for velvety soft skin that smells exquisitely sweet and tropical! When winter wreaks havoc and dries out my skin natural oils are depleted and a rich, nourishing body butter is a must!
Enriched with vitamins A, B5, E and real fruit goodness this body butter smells scrumptiously tropical and enhances skin resiliency for long-lasting results.
When your skin lacks the healing benefits of a good night’s sleep and you awake looking less than perky the Illuminating Beauty Serum is designed to help boost your complexion. Packed with moisturizing ginseng, vitamin E, neroli oil and radiance enhancing maca root, the serum is formulated to provide a natural looking, luminous glow instantly.
I like how hydrating this serum is and it really does illuminate and revive. It is meant to be applied over or under makeup although applying it under makeup seems to dull the radiance effect and applying on top messes up my foundation. I am not quite sure how to maintain the alluring glow of this product but I can use it in place of moisturizer and it is suitable for all skin types.
Last but not least is one of my favorite products from this line, the Instant Blur Primer designed to smooth and prefect the skin for improved makeup application.
The primer is formulated to instantly improve skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and create an even base for makeup. With the power of vitamin E and ginseng it blends effortlessly and helps blur uneven texture, minimizes shine and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores. The more you apply the smoother skin feels although you don’t need to over-apply as it does cover consistently. NSPA beauty is available at Walmart.

PS - To fix the problem with the G+ profile you need to remove this part "/p/pub" from the end of the URL. That part is from your view as the publisher of the page, so that's why no one else can see anything when it is clicked.
So your profile link is actually this:
Hope that helps!
