The nspa 4 Step Beauty Ritual

Hi there!

Today I'm going to be telling you about the nspa 4 step beauty ritual.
A few months back I was stumbling around Asda looking for a new face wash when I spotted the new nspa beauty ritual range sold exclusively at Asda.
The nspa range was created by the Nirvana Day Spa.

The Beauty Rituals range is made up of 20 different products including a gift box set with 4 products included.

The 4 step program is simple:

1. Cleanse
 2. Exfoliate
 3. Treat     
  4. Moisurise

All products are paraben-free, dermatologically approved, suitable for all skin types, even sensitive, against animal testing & made in the UK. 

Out of the 20 available products I picked a basic 4 to get me started and see whether I liked them. Plus they were on offer 2 for £8 always a bonus. All products have a nice perfumed scent that's not too overwhelming. 

"Step 1: Cleanse to draw out impurites, remove makeup and clarify skin." 

Melting Cleansing Gel 125 ml/4.2 floz ~£6.00 or part of the 2 for £8.00 offer ~Luxurious gel that turns to a cleansing milk with Grapeseed oil & essential oil of Neroli

Ingredients: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Vitis Vinifera Seed (Grapeseed) Oil, Aqua, Sucrose Laurate, Sucrose Palmitate, Parfum, Citrus Aurantium Flower (Neroli) Oil, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Natural Vitamin E), Alcohol, Sucrose Myristate, Isopropyl Myristate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Limonene, CI 16035, CI 19140.

This product is so nice to use. Just squeeze a pea-sized about onto the finger tips and gently work all over the face. It feels very oily but this helps remove any make left on the skin. Then wet hands and massage face again, now the gel turns in to a cleansing milk. Then rinse well, I tend to use a flannel to remove all product. This melting cleansing gel is amazing, does such a good job of removing my make, even mascara. It feels really quite luxurious and I absolutely love it!

"Step 2: Exfoliate to buff away dull skin cells, refine pores & tone skin."

Brightening Detox Scrub 125 ml/4.2 floz ~£4.50 or part of the 2 for £8.00~ Gentle scrub to draw out impurities and smooth skin with Micro Exfoliation beads & Essential Oil of Neroli

Ingredients: Aqua, Paraffinum Liquidum, Stearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 20, Solum Diatomeae (Diatomaceous Earth), Cetyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Xanthan Gum, Parfum, Polyethylene, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Flower (Neroli) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Salicylic Acid, Disodium EDTA, Magnesium Nitrate, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Magnesium Chloride, Methylisothiazolinone, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Linalool, Limonene.

What I like about this scrub is that the Micro-beads are tiny, like sand or sugar so they do a really great job of sloffing off dead skin cells and getting into pores. The texture is gritty as you would imagine but not too much so and has quite a light texture. To use smooth on to damp skin (after cleanser) and gently work in to skin with circular motions, then rinse off. It says to use 2-3 times a week but I use it every day as I suffer with acne prone skin especially around my T.O.M. and this helps to buff off any flaky dry skin.

"Step 3: Treat to condition and replenish tired skin."

Illumination Beauty Serum 50 ml/1.7 floz ~£7.00 or part of the 2 for £8.00 offer ~ An instant natural luminous skin glow

Ingredients: Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Octyldodecanol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Glycerin, Vitis Vinifera Seed (Grapeseed) Oil, Cyclohexasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Parfum, Citrus Aurantium Flower (Neroli) Oil, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Hydrolyzed Lepidium Meyenii (Maca) Root, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Mica, Silica, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Benzoate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Capryloyl Glycine, Citric Acid, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1,3-Diol, Potassium Sorbate, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Limonene, CI 77891.

This beauty serum has little gold shimmering particles in it that reflect light giving an instant glowing look. To use simply apply serum over a clean face, wait a few minutes before following with moisturiser. Wear under or over makeup for an instant boost. The texture is gel like and gives a very subtle glimmer to the skin. 

"Step 4: Moisturise to restore and nourish thirsty skin"

Oil-Free Moisture Gel 50 ml/1.7 floz ~£7.00 or part of the 2 for £8.00 offer ~ Non-greasy concentrated skin-boosting gel to intensely hydrate & protect skin with moisurising Ginseng & Natural Vitamin E.

Ingredients: Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Cyclohexasiloxane, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, Betaine, Hydrolyzed Lepidium Meyenii (Maca) Root, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Citrus Aurantium Flower (Neroli) Extract, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Parfum, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Squalane, Polysorbate 60, Capryloyl Glycine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Limonene, CI 16035, CI 19140.

I picked this moisturiser because it was oil-free and I have fairly oily skin, so I didn't want to add to that. I really love this moisture gel. Its so cooling and soothing. It glides on to the skin so smoothly- my boyfriend even likes it! It leaves skin feeling hydrated but not oily or 'wet' as I find some moisturiser's leave my skin and works well as a makeup base. The only thing I wish it had was spf. As its really hot and sunny at the moment I'm having to put on lots of sun lotion and it makes my face an oily mess :( But overall love it!
