July Beauty Awards

Hi there! Today’s the last day of the month, so today’s post is about all the products I’ve enjoyed the most for the past 4 weeks. I chose my TOP 3 from all the products I reviewed this month, and there will be a few honourable mentions as well. Let’s start with the TOP 3!

3rd place – Herbal Essences Bio Renew Rosemary & Herbs Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner

Herbal Essences did an amazing job with these 2 hair products. I would recommend them!

Runner-Up – Primark PS… Exfoliate & Cleanse Watermelon Body Scrub

Primark’s Watermelon Body Scrub is simply amazing. It smells like watermelon ice cream! I’m happy this is a big 475ml tub!

WINNER – Superdrug Vitamin E All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract

Superdrug created another mind-blowing limited edition moisturiser for their Vitamin E collection. This is truly awesome stuff!

Onto the honourable mentions! Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Blemish Mud is a great face mask, Beauty Formulas Deep Cleansing Gold Gel Cleanser & Peel Off Mask is an effective cleanser and mask duo which I’ve already repurchased, and I was really happy with the Skin Treats Pineapple Toning Sheet Mask.

The Crème Shop Pumpkin Spice Fusion Sheet Mask is very enjoyable, and Primark did a fab job with their PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel-Off Mask and their PS… Cleansing & Polishing Scrub Mask.

Skin Treats Pineapple Toning Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Pineapple Toning Sheet Mask. This face mask contains vitamins and minerals, and it promises to soothe and tone skin for a youthful and refreshed look with a healthy glow.

This is a regular sheet mask that’s supposed to be used after you’ve cleansed your face. Just leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin.

Since Skin Treats’ Blueberry sheet mask left me underwhelmed, I didn’t expect much from this mask. However, I’m happy that I gave this mask a try because it’s actually very good! The sheet mask itself is of much better quality (comparable to The Crème Shop’s sheet masks) which was a nice surprise.

I also think the essence is really good. It felt refreshing and toning, and the subtle pineapple fragrance was very enjoyable too. I have already repurchased this mask, and if you come across it, I’d recommend you give it a try too!

Skin Treats Pineapple Toning Sheet Mask is available as a single use face mask for £1. I bought mine at B&M Bargains.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid & Double Stamping With Pueen 106

Hi there! Today’s short post is about a cute mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of milky purple is my favourite nail colour. 🥰

For the images I used Pueen‘s beautiful 106 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

I decided to double-stamp. I used Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold) for the images.

I liked this mani a lot – but I used some of my favourite products, so I knew I’d be happy with the result. 😊

100 Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Lemon & Honey Peel-Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Lemon & Honey Peel-Off Mask.

This face mask is aimed at all skin types. It promises to lift away dirt, impurities and dead skin cells for softer skin.

When I gave this mask a try, I wasn’t impressed. Within seconds of applying this mask, it felt hot, almost burning, on my skin. I’ve never experienced this with any other peel-off mask. Fortunately, the burning sensation went away quickly.

Yes, the mask made my skin feel softer, and the honey & lemon lozenge scent is amazing. However, I wouldn’t buy this mask again because it gave me a major scare.

If you’d like to try it, Superdrug‘s Lemon & Honey Peel-Off Mask is available as 10ml. It’s 99p but these masks are on a 3 for 2 promo most of the time. This product is 100% cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny certified) and suitable for vegetarians.

Primark PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel-Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel Off Mask which contains cucumber, jasmine and ginseng root extracts.

This mask promises to free pores from dirt and to lift off dead skin cells. All you have to do: Apply the mask to your face, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then peel it off. After that, simply wash your face, and you’re good to go. ☺️

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! I like the fresh cucumber scent, and I’m happy with its first rate cleansing powers. This a very effective peel off mask! Montagne Jeunesse should take note because this is what their cucumber peel off mask should be like!

PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel Off Mask is available as 10ml (single use) for 80p (Primark).

Primark PS… Cleansing & Polishing Scrub Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Cleansing & Polishing Scrub Mask with charcoal and black sugar. This mask promises effective exfoliation as well as a deep cleanse. How does it work? Apply the mask to your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with water.

I’ve given this mask a try, and whilst it’s not an actual mask, I liked the exfoliating effect. This product is essentially a sugar scrub for the face. It feels effective but not too harsh, and it doesn’t have that disgusting oily residue that sugar scrubs for the body come with. Yay! If they bottled this stuff and called it “sugar face scrub”, I’d buy it and consider it a beauty staple!

Primark’s PS… Cleansing & Polishing Scrub Mask is available as 15ml single use sachet for 80p (Primark).

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Dead Sea Sheet Masque

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Dead Sea Sheet Masque.

This face mask contains chopped seaweed, crushed Dead Sea salt and pressed red algae.

On the front of the sachet it says the mask is cleansing and calming. On the back it says the mask revives stressed out skin and leaves it smooth and rehydrated.

These statements couldn’t be more conflicting, so what’s actually true?

When I placed the mask on my face, I felt a tingling sensation. Not unpleasant or scary, but it felt very refreshing, almost cold. I also found the mask very cleansing. It made my face feel and look clean and clear.

The face mask didn’t feel hydrating or calming, but I’m not unhappy about it. The mask did what I hoped it would do, so I have no reason to complain. 😊

Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Dead Sea Sheet Masque is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). The mask is available as a single use sheet mask for about £1. I picked up a few mask at my local Home Bargains store when they ran a 3 for 2 promotion on Montagne Jeunesse face masks.
