Spring Refresher || Puretopia

The time of blooming flowers, hayfever 24/7 and the bipolar Melbourne weather will finally dwindle. Summer will soon be upon us guys! 
I know for a start, that I do have a love hate relationship with Spring, as I love that perfect sunny weather but then again the hayfever really gets me down in the dumps. I was sent a couple of items by Puretopia that have been some picks for this season and will definitely be of great use for summer.

Puretopia Gentle Exfoliating Face Scrub
I would say this scrub is life changing! My beloved Exfolimate has lost its holy grail status because of this one, it will make your skin hella smooth and flake free! I do have some troubles if i apply bb cream as it will always stick to whatever dry spot there is but using this scrub in the morning or even the night before will completely diminish it. 
It says to apply this scrub after you cleanse which I do, atleast once a day. The scrub itself is very fine and doesnt feel rough at all, I use atleast the size of a 10 cent coin per use. 

Puretopia Facial Mist & Toner
I absolutely love facial mists especially during hot days, its like my way of cooling down since I dont have a fan in the room. I will say that it hasnt done anything spectacular to my skin, maybe it has hydrated it maybe it hasnt, but I use it when my face is in need for a cool down.
It has a unique orange citrus scent but doesnt linger on the skin for much and also the spray is some-what of a big mist (pictured above). Do you ever feel like a wuss when you spray something for the first time onto your face?! well yeah this is one that gave me a shock when I did my first spray but it does spray a lot so you will only need a max of 3 sprays. Will be saving this one when the famous heat wave comes around. 

Puretopia Daily Face Moisturiser SPF15
Im saving this one for the sunny days as this contains SPF but it really is a great daily face moisturiser.  The packaging did put me off slightly but the product is well worth it, I find that a little does go a long way and this doesnt leave a greasy residue behind so I can get away with not putting powder on top to mattify it. It's light weight and compared with many other facial moisturisers that contain SPF, this one is less work! And being a lazy person anything that's less time consuming and less work is a win in my books.

Disclaimer: I was sent these products for consideration. As always, it is my honest review on the products


  1. I've only tried a couple of products from Puretopia but I quite like both of them. I use the mist every night as a second toning step and I really like it! The ingredients are really nice and I find it quite refreshing and hydrating. The scrub sounds awesome!

    1. And even the scent is somewhat delightful! I want to try some more of their products, they seem so underrated. You have got to try the scrub, will make a change in your skincare!!

  2. I aboustely adore the toner! It's one of my faves for the warmer weather :)

    1. oh my gosh its the best feeling ever spraying it on when the weather is warmer!! Like a burst of fresh air!

  3. The moisturizer looks great for Summer! So lightweight :) And the scrub sounds good, I'm keen on trying it! But I'm always scared to stray from my skincare routine in case my skin freaks out haha
