NSPA Fruit Extracts Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about this NSPA Fruit Extracts Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Shower & Bath Gel.

I’ve been using the matching body butter for a few weeks now, so I thought I should dig up the shower gel too.

Now that I’ve used this shower gel for a few times, I’m happy to report that I like it. It lathers up nicely, it smells of sweet cherries, and it’s not too harsh on the skin.

I haven’t used it as a bath gel, but I think it would be nice and bubbly.

I can see that the simple, linear fragrance might get old (it’s a 500ml bottle after all), but for now I am enjoying it.

NSPA Fruit Extracts Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Shower & Bath Gel is available as 500ml for £3. I’m pretty sure I bought it when it was on special (probably half price).

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven & Ciaté Snow Globe (Nail Fail)

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven (2 coat). This is a great polish. I just love the colour and the formula.

The top coat I used is Ciaté Snow Globe. I had high expectations for this top coat, but it turned out to be a disappointment. It’s on the goopy side, there aren’t many flakies in this top coat, and those few that make it onto the nails are VERY stand-offish, so they get caught in everything.

I didn’t care for this mani at all… Onto the next one!

The Battle Of The Brightening Pearl Sheet Masks – Mad Beauty Disney Mulan Brightening Pearl Face Mask, Mad Beauty Disney Frozen Pearl Face Mask, Primark PS… Brightening Pearl Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is a product comparison, and it’s between 3 brightening pearl sheet masks – Mad Beauty Disney Mulan Brightening Pearl Face Mask, Mad Beauty Disney Frozen Pearl Face Mask and Primark PS… Brightening Pearl Sheet Mask. Let’s take a closer look!

Mad Beauty Disney Mulan Brightening Pearl Face Mask wasn’t great. I used the mask as instructed – I cleansed my face, put on the mask, left it on for about 20 minutes, then I took it off and rinsed the residue off of my face. The mask had no positive effect, but it irritated the skin on my cheeks – just a bit, and all was well again after an hour. But this isn’t what I want from a mask. I also found the strong sweet floral fragrance rather annoying. Also, this is a printed mask, and it looked grotesque on. All in all, I wouldn’t recommend this mask.

Mad Beauty Disney Frozen Pearl Face Mask was carbon-copy of the Mulan mask. The same unpleasant fragrance, the same lack of any visible positive effect on the skin, and the same mild irritation. This mask looked just as grotesque. I regret having bought 8 different Mad Beauty Disney masks. I’ve used 5 now, and none of them impressed me. Fortunately, I bought these when they were half price. Still… there’s much better stuff to be found at Poundland and other bargain stores!

Onto this Primark PS… Brightening Pearl Sheet Mask! This mask was lovely! It felt amazing on, it made my skin feel super soft, it smelled like powder, and the essence didn’t leave a sticky film on my face! Also, this face mask is certified cruelty-free – it carries the Leaping Bunny logo. And priced at 80p, it’s a total steal! Repurchase? Yes!

Based on my experience with these 3 masks, Primark’s PS… Brightening Pearl Sheet Mask is the obvious winner of The Battle Of The Brightening Pearl Sheet Masks. Those 2 Mad Beauty masks were a waste of time and money…

Face Facts Pineapple Regenerating Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Face Facts Pineapple Regenerating Sheet Mask which I picked up at Savers. This face mask promises to soothe and to regenerate the skin. It’s a leave-on mask, so start with cleansing your skin. Then put the mask on. Leave it on for about 15 minutes, then take it off and massage the remaining essence from the sachet into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I found it alright. It was soothing and hydrating, but the strong coconut smell put me off. Why could they not have chosen a pineapple scent?

If you’re looking for a hydrating and soothing mask, and if you don’t mind the smell of coconut, I’d recommend the mask. If you’re interested, Face Facts Pineapple Regenerating Sheet Mask is available as a 20ml single-ue face mask for £1 (Savers, B&M Bargains). According the manufacturer, the mask is also cruelty-free and suitable for vegans!

Skin Treats Yummy Pumpkin Spice Super Softening Printed Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Yummy Pumpkin Spice Super Softening Printed Face Mask. This is a leave-on sheet mask. So cleanse your face, then put the mask on. After about 15 minutes you’re supposed to take it off. Then just massage the remaining essence into your skin and follow with your normal skin care.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s nothing special. I found it hydrating and nourishing, but it left a sticky film on my face. I found the pumpkin spice scent pleasant though. All in all, I wouldn’t buy this mask again. There are better masks out there!

If you’re interested, Skin Treats Yummy Pumpkin Spice Super Softening Printed Face Mask is available as a as a single use 22ml sheet mask for about £1. I found this mask at my local Home Bargain store.

Boots Plastic Free Fabric Sheet Mask With Added Glycolic Acid

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Plastic Free Fabric Sheet Mask With Added Glycolic Acid. Wash your face, put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes, then pat the leftover essence into your skin. Boots recommends the mask be used 2-3 times a week for best results.

I’ve used one of these masks so far, and I found it excellent. I’m happy to report that it made my skin look brighter and refreshed, and that it left my skin feeling amazing. I will buy this mask again, no doubt, although I don’t think I can commit to using the same mask 2-3 times per week.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend the face mask. Since it contains glycolic acid, make sure you follow the instructions for use and after care, especially when you’ve never used products with glycolic acid before. If you’re interested, Boots Plastic Free Fabric Sheet Mask With Added Glycolic Acid is available as a 16g single-use sheet mask for £1.50. According to Boots, this mask is cruelty-free and suitable for vegans! 😍

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask with raspberry, cranberry and red grape.

I used to like this mask (initially I didn’t cae for it, but it grew on me after a few uses). I haven’t used it in years though (the reason is my ever growing stash of face masks).

When I saw that Superdrug gave their own-brand face mask collection a make-over, I thought it’s time to repurchase a few of the masks I used to like or love.

This peel-off mask is supposed to left on for 10-20 minutes (until it’s dry). It promises to remove dead skin cells and to leave skin with a radiant glow.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s good. I enjoyed the fruity fragrance, and I’m happy to report that the mask left my skin feeling super soft. I will definitely buy this mask again – hopefully it won’t be another couple of years!

If you’re interested, Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask with raspberry, cranberry and red grape is available as a ml single-use mask for 99p. I bought 3 of these masks on a 3 for 2 offer.

Mitomo Retinol Facial Essence Mask

Cleanse your face, then put the mask on. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. Then follow with your normal skin care.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s one of the best face masks I’ve ever used. Ever! It’s the bomb! The mask feels amazing on – it’s refreshing and hydrating, it’s not sticky and it feels just so comfortable! When I took the mask off, I found my skin to be looking amazing – fresh, plump, relaxed. Wow! I didn’t put anything on my skin after the mask, and I’m happy to report that my skin looked and felt amazing the entire day.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these masks! Mitomo Retinol Facial Essence Mask is available as a pack of 5 x 25g single-use sheet masks for £3.99 (TK Maxx). I will stock up for sure!

Global Beauty Care Collagen Spa Treatment Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Global Beauty Care Collagen Spa Treatment Mask. This sheet mask contains collagen, essential fatty acids, grapefruit extract and sodium hyaluronate. It promises to firm, tone and revive skin elasticity, and it claims to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 15 minutes.

How does it work? Cleanse your face before you put the mask on. Leave it on for 15 minutes – not for longer as it can irritate the skin. Then rinse off any residue.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. It felt great, and I would agree that the mask made my skin look and feel toned, refreshed and revived. I loved the look and feel of my skin after using this mask! Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask.

If you’re interested, Global Beauty Care Collagen Spa Treatment Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks for £4.99 (TK Maxx).
