A good few months ago De Mamiel, a brand I’d had on my radar released this beautiful travel set full of minis (my other weakness!)
I thought it would be a great opportunity to take the brand for a test drive.
I’m going to give you my thoughts on the products included, I also purchased the rosey lip balm so that my order would ship for free!
Cleansing Balm: This has a very soft citrus scent, whilst it is a non-emulsifying balm it does remove super easily with a warm flannel, skin feels so soft after cleansing, whilst I am really enjoying it, I haven’t decided if I will repurchase.
Cleansing Dew: This has the similar faint citrusy scent of the cleansing balm, the oil is slightly thicker in consistency then other oil cleansers I have used in the past. It does emulsify slightly, however is still my preference to remove it with a flannel. I like using a little bit in the morning, I did find that it removed make-up fairly well too.
Dewy Facial Mist: First off the spray on the mini is so super fine it is beautiful, unfortunately I found the scent somewhat overpowering, it’s hard to describe its kind of rosey/citrusy/freshly cut grass all mixed together. Unfortunately I didn’t love this mist.
Intense Nurture Antioxidant Elixir: This was quite nice, it has what I’d say a true Serum consistency (ie not an oil called a Serum) you don’t need to use much product, I only used 3-4 drops for my face and neck, so I think this would last awhile. There wasn’t really a discernible scent.
I find it really difficult to tell if products ‘work’ you can’t often see visible signs, to me though my skin felt and looked healthy.
When I think a product isn’t working I notice my skin just looks and feels a bit blah.
Exhale Daily Hydrating Nectar: I really liked this, you can see below it is a slightly tinted moisturiser, it provides no real coverage just a fresh wash of colour, I’m pretty pale and it looked completely natural, I don’t think this would make darker skins look too pale either.
For the most part I used this as a Moisturiser and applied SPF and makeup over the top, it provided a great base.
I would consider repurchasing, I would probably opt for the SPF 30 version though, especially for days around the house/school run, I would be happy with just the Hydrating nectar to make me look less chronically tired!
Altitude Oil: This oil is an aromatherapy blend, to use this you can sprinkle a few drops on a tissue and inhale.
You can also add a few drops to the shower and let it steam up and inhale it whilst you shower, or in a diffuser etc
This is a unique eucalyptus/peppermint blend, which helps to clear the airways, it was designed to help in travel when you can often feel congested, this would also be a great Winter blend for when you get a cold and flu.
Salvation Body Oil: I’m a body oil lover, this was quite nice, with just that same hint of citrus that is prevalent in the cleansers. I found it absorbed pretty well without leaving the skin actually feeling too oily.
Rosey Lip Balm: I’m obsessed with Rose scents and this is no exception, it’s a lovely lush lip balm, my lips are pretty good at the moment and I’ve really enjoyed this for helping to keep them soft and nourished, my only concern is that when my lips flare up (and go super dry and flaky, so gross!) it might not quite be enough to combat.
Overall I’m glad I took the plunge and picked up this travel set, as I got the opportunity to experience some products I had on my wishlist for awhile.
You can find the DeMamiel website here they are also stocked on Cult Beauty.
Have you tried anything from DeMamiel? I’d love to know your thoughts!
