L'oreal Paris Beauty Egg - First Impressions & Review

There have been so many new beauty releases recently, one of those being these beauty eggs from  Superdrug which are all available in time for Easter. There are a few different ones available but the one that intrigued me straight away was the L'oreal Paris one which was £8 and contained 3 skincare products. I thought as this is brand new I would do a little blog post all about it and tell you what I think of the products inside, and also let you know about some of the other beauty eggs that are available if you haven't seen yet!

As I said, the L'oreal Paris Beauty Egg contains 3 skincare products, those being a sample of the Hydra Genius Liquid Moisturiser, a sample of the Pure Clay Purity Mask and a Smooth Sugar Clear Scrub.

L'oreal Hydra Genius Liquid Moisturiser

I was really happy to get a sample of this, it's actually one of the main reasons I was intrigued by this particular beauty egg as I'd heard fab things about it but I didn't want to splash out on the full thing if it wasn't going to be any good. The Hydra Genius Liquid Moisturiser is a skincare product which has a several features to leave you with refreshed and glowing skin.

The Liquid Care - It delivers pure moisture which penetrates quickly and deeply but doesn't overload the skin.
Instantly Refreshes - It absorbs extremely quickly into the skin as it has a water like texture.
Locks In Moisture - It reinvigorates the skin and leaves you with a healthy looking glow.
72 Hour Recharge - It releases continuous hydration, drenching the skin with moisture for up to 72 hours.

As I only had a small sample I only got a few uses out of this. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it absorbed into my skin, it really does have a water like consistency so it doesn't take much rubbing in and it didn't leave that heavy or sticky feeling some moisturisers do. I also really did feel I looked a little more awake after using it which was nice! I can't even put into words how nice my skin felt after using too. Just extremely soft and so hydrated. The sample has definitely made me want to pick up the full size version so I'll be getting that soon.

Smooth Sugar Scrub

 The Smooth Sugar Clear Scrub was the main thing that intrigued me as it's a product I'd never seen before but as I'd tried similar products in the past, I couldn't wait to see what this was like and how it compared. This is the first sugar scrub with treating actives in gentle textures for a deep yet gentle exfoliation. It's supposed to be great for tackling pesky blackheads and pores, leaving them less visible within a week and also leaving your with softer, clearer, and purified skin. This is made from 3 fine sugars and kiwi seeds (I love the bright colour of it and how much it actually looks like kiwi!), those being white sugar which just melts on the skin while buffing away any impurities and dead skin cells, blonde sugar which is a natural moisturiser and finally brown sugar which is rich in minerals which are supposed to strengthen the skin's barrier. The first thing I noticed about this was it's scent, it has quite a strong fragrance of lemongrass and peppermint which I absolutely loved! Though it wasn't quite as minty as I expected, the fresh kiwi scent was lovely. I've been using this a few times a week now and it's become one of my new skincare favourites. It leaves my skin feeling incredible! It buffs in really well, the sugar genuinely melts in a matter of seconds and it washes off really easily. I'd definitely buy this again in future, I feel so refreshed after using it.

Pure Clay Purity Mask

Finally, there was a sample of the Pure Clay Purity Face Mask which is actually currently on offer for £5.99. I'd already tried the purity mask as it's part of the multi masking kit which I featured in my February Favourites and I was always so impressed with it. This features 3 clays masks with eucalyptus extract which is known for it's purifying properties. The mask works deep into pores, leaving skin purified and matte looking, without it feeling dry, something I was worried about before first using. The reason I love this mask in particular so much is because I really do find it has instant results. I find my skin looks much healthier and like any bacteria has been lifted, and it also makes it feel really fresh and soft. As the full size L'oreal masks are now on offer I think I'm going to treat myself as they work so well and are a perfect addition to a little pamper night.

Whilst this particular beauty egg was the one that caught my eye, they do have a few others on offer too which are definitely worth considering if you're wanting to treat yourself! There are several Makeup Revolution ones for £5, Ghost ones which contain mini perfumes and finally a Olay Total Effects Day Moisturiser Egg.

Have you tried any of these skincare bits from L'oreal?
