For a few years now my mum had been telling me I should try different products and I should really look after my skin and its only been recently when I have really got interested in moisturisers and face masks and I have found the most amazing face mask and moisturiser which feels amazing!

Its an Elizabeth Arden product, Ive always thought Elizabeth Arden was for older people but it’s really not.

The face mask is a like a gel and you only need a tiny bit and when I bought it, it came with a little spatula to put on to your skin smoothly. It spreads out really well which is good as the product itself is quite expensive.It has quite a strong smell to it when its on but it’s not too strong to be a problem. 
Once the face mask is dry it’s really easy to peel away from your skin and makes your skin feeling really smooth. The products I got came with a box of little gold oil moisturise pods which are great. I did find the gold pods did leave my skin feeling a bit greasy for a little while and there was quite a lot in them so I was able to spread it down my neck which I feel sometimes gets forgotten about, who actually regularly moisturises their neck? 
The set then came with a small bottle of serum for the skin. I find this really helpful to just top up my skin every few days (obviously use moisturiser every day) but you don’t want to be doing a face mask every day as it will dry your skin out. I would recommend a face mask once a week to keep it feeling smooth and healthy. 

I hope you enjoyed my review and leave comments if you have any other suggestions for moisturiser and face mask products for me to try.

Hi! Im Freya. Im 23 and this my escape from life into my own little world visiting, tasting and trying the things I love! Hoping that everyone will enjoy my posts and give others ideas of what they would like and hopefully I can steal some ideas back!


  1. All I can say is to wear some sort of moisturiser/sunscreen every day of your life (as I have been doing for nearly 45 years).
    Up until I had to take early retirement due to chronic ill health in 2010, I used to use Lancome’s moisturiser/aanti-wrinkle cream at about Aust$164 (probably over $200 now). I made it last 3 months and back in those days I looked 7-8 years younger.

    It is absolutely amazing.

    Now I’m living on a frugal Govt Disability Pension I still use moisturiser daily, but it cost $18.95 😀 and I look years older (than my actual age) with deep wrinkles under my eyes. I’ve used lip balm, lipstick topped with a little lip gloss all my adult life and I don’t have any of those little lines around my mouth that my friends have.

    The best advice I can give for your beautiful skin is drink lots of pure filtered water, reduce the tea/coffee and processed food, and most importantly, (for fair people like me in particular), is STAY OUT OF THE MIDDAY SUN and forget the suntan.

    I remember getting so badly burnt in Athens in the mid 1970s, my face was swollen like a balloon. Don’t remember ever getting sunburnt in the UK in 1976, 1978/9 though. Of course, I try to stay out of the Australian sun, but do get my right hand (that holds my camera) burnt every summer despite sunblock.

    1. Thank you for the advise! Its really great having a moisturising routine! Completely agree with what you say though to stay out of the sun although I must admit it is quite hard to get burnt in England as we have a summer that lasts about 2 weeks then its just rain!

      1. Sun’s good for your Vit D and Calcium uptake, but even if you don’t get burnt in the UK, stay out of the midday sun.
        (forgot to say don’t smoke cigarettes, either). You won’t notice so much at your age, but when you get to your mid 40s & 50s, all these things (especially crappy diet) will really age you.
