5th Sense Habitat is an organic beauty spa located in Lekki Phase 1. The idea behind the spa is for visitors to get in tune with their five senses: Touch, Vision, Sound, Scents and Taste... hence the name 5th Sense Habitat.

They offer a full range of beauty services which include: Massages, Pedicure, Manicure, Facial, Body Treatments, Hair Removal procedure & Hair Styling, with a focus on natural hair and specific.

I personally enjoyed an extremely relaxing pedicure a few weeks ago and asked that they extend some of their services to you guys :)..... See, I always look out for my readers ;)

They have generously agreed to offer 3 BiL followers a free Facial, Swedish Massage and a full Manicure.

So I am gonna keep this post short and sweet because I already have a very detailed post about my skincare routine (you can read that here). You all remember in this post here, I mentioned I was dealing with breakouts on my face because I'd used an expired makeup product and had scaled back a whole lot on the number of skincare products I used daily.

Well, I'd been using this ELEMIS Rosepetal Cleanser for a while and it was fantastic. Then the breakout started and it was one of the products I took off my top-shelf. A few weeks back I decided to pick it up again and was reminded of how much I LOVE it and kicking myself over the fact I hadn't shared it earlier! It has actually helped in calming my skin down, the areas not affected by the breakout feel soft and smooth, no word of a lie!

The directions on the back say to massage into dry skin and remove excess cleanser with a damp cotton wool. Ok, so I do not completely agree with that, I say 'not completely' because... I do actually apply this to my dry face, but I do not 'remove the excess cleanser with a cotton wool pad'.... *skkkrrrrrrrr*. So, I am sure you must've read my skincare routine post by now and can already tell how I get cleansers off my face. I always double-cleanse at night (If you don't know what double-cleanse is, read my skincare routine post please), and I use the ELEMIS Rosepetal cleanser as my second cleanse. It gets rid of all the makeup on your face, but not so much eye-makeup. You will need to use an eye makeup remover during the first cleanse, but that isn't really an issue for me as I always do that anyway.

The consistency is milky but very light, and the scent reminds me of cleansers used during a professional facial at a spa. I always feel like I am at a spa whenever I use this. It goes on smoothly, not thick at all, and melts right into the skin.

I will definitely recommend this cleanser, but please be sure to do a patch test first.

Where to buy: Beauty Emporium
Price: N15,300*

Anyone else tried this cleanser, what are your thoughts?

This Manicure was graciously done by Damola and sponsored by Le Chat, in the BeautyInLagos booth at the just concluded Beauty Africa Exhibition 2016. Damola was a winner at last year's Nail Art Competition, and works as an independent Nail Tech under the brand name Lacquer & Lace. She's amazing with Nail Art and went ahead to create this manicure inspired by the ongoing Pink Manicure theme this month.
