Recently I was kindly sent some goodies from Nia, the worldwide known skincare brand, to review on my blog. I’m so excited about this collab and can’t wait to share with you all my thoughts.

So the first item I tried out was the Sunday Detox whipped clay peel-off mask. This is priced at £30 and comes in a light weight bottles with instructions of how to use on the back.
Tazmyn and myself both tried this out, Tazmyn is majorly into clay masks, so she’s the expert more so than me. We quite liked the texture of this particular mask, as it does have that whipped feel to it and it’s very light as well. Most clay masks we have used previously have been a lot thicker in consistency so this was a lot thinner and possibly needed that bit more of it for full coverage when applied to the face. The one thing we didn’t like about the applying stage of this mask, was the smell. It was not a pleasant smell at all unfortunately, and as you can see from the ingredients above, it does contain lentil seed extract and clay as well as bamboo charcoal powder which was kind strong in smell. That aside though, it felt amazing once applied to the skin, really fresh, light and hydrating.
We left it on our face for the recommended time of 10-15 minutes, and then gently peeled off the excess mask once it had set.
Instantly both of our skin felt really soft and energised.
We decided to both rate this clay mask out of 5 stars with 5 being the best. We based our views on texture, quality, results, packaging etc.
Tazmyn: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Me: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We both felt the only thing that could make this better would be the smell, I don’t think any of us particularly want to have something that doesn’t smell nice on our skin, however we would use this product again.
I then went ahead and tried the Glow on Demand energising Illuminator, this is priced at £29 but currently on sale at £19.90. To be honest, I hadn’t really used any illuminating serums before so this was kind of new to me.
On the packaging, it does say to use at any time of day or night, whenever your skin feels like it needs a boost, promising to rev up dull, lifeless skin. However, once I had applied it to my hand, I realised it’s probably not something I’d apply at night, and more so maybe before doing my make up as it’s quite dark in texture.
I applied this to my face and instantly fell in love with it, I love the texture of it, how alive it made my skin feel and that it is slightly tinted which made my skin look really radiant.
I’d absolutely give this product 5 out of 5 stars and I can’t wait to use it again as a base before applying my make up.
I hope you enjoyed this review, as much as I enjoyed testing these products out.
A huge thank you to Nia for working with me on this collaboration, I really appreciate being able to review these items on my blog.
