Nature Love Hyaluronic Face Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Nature Love‘s Hyaluronic Face Mask. This sheet mask contains hyaluronic acid, cucumber and honeysuckle extracts, and it promises to soothe and hydrate skin.

This sheet mask is easy to use – cleanse your face, apply the mask, leave it alone for 20 minutes, then massage the excess serum into your skin. Now, read on to find out if the mask is any good…

I can make a long story short – this mask is absolutely amazing. I never had a sheet mask that left my skin anywhere near as hydrated as this mask. So yes, this mask set new standards! But it isn’t that much of a surprise. Looking at the ingredients, I can see that sodium hyaluronate is listed as the 3rd ingredient. This explains why the mask is so incredibly hydrating!

I would recommend this sheet mask to everyone! Nature Love‘s Hyaluronic Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

100% Awesome – Imperial Leather Foamy Banana Shower Cream, Bath Cream & Hand Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana products. At the moment Imperial Leather offers a shower cream, a bath cream, and a hand wash! And I think these products are 100% awesome!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Shower Cream (250ml) is one of my favourite shower products. It’s happiness in a bottle. The fragrance is 100% foamy banana, but it’s not overly sweet. This is the perfect shower gel to start the day with. 11 stars!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Bath Cream (500ml) is just as awsome as the shower cream. I love the non-drying formula and the insanely gorgeous fragrance. This is the perfect bath treat before bed time. 11 stars!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Hand Wash (300ml) is one of the 2 best hand washes ever (the other one’s Carex’s Bubble Gum hand wash). It’s a real treat for hands! 11 stars!

I would recommend Imperial Leather’s Foamy Banana products to everyone! I’ve gone through multiple hand washes over the past year (or so), but I’ve only recently tried the shower gel and the bath cream (which I picked up for £1 each), and I feel like an idiot for not trying them sooner. So… if you’re not already in love with these products, you need to try them asap!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Calm Skin Skincare De-Stress Refreshing Facial Spritz

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Calm Skin Skincare De-Stress Refreshing Facial Spritz. This product contains chamomile, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, and it promises to target the visible signs of stress on the skin.

On top of that, this product claims to soothe the skin, with visible results promised after 4 weeks.

So how’s the product? I’ve been using it for 4 weeks now, and I think it’s great. I know I’ll buy it again! I have very dry skin and I suffer from occasional bouts of eczema, but my my skin is also quite moody, and it’s prone to impurities.

This facial spray helps me because, thanks to its high glycerin content, it helps lock in moisture which allows me to stay on top of my eczema patches.

My skin hasn’t been moody for a few weeks, so I’m satisfied that this spray soothes my skin. On top of that, I’ve noticed that blemishes come and go faster than usual. I’m used to dealing with blemishes for weeks at a time. Seeing them heal within a few days is a very welcome change!

But there’s one thing I need to mention as not perfect. You cannot spray this product over your make-up because it can’t be dispensed as a fine mist. I thought it was the spray nozzle, so I filled the contents of this bottle into an empty B. Confident facial spritz bottle (which has always dispensed the finest and most wonderful hyaluronic acid face mist). However, there was no change at all.

I tried another spray bottle that I was always happy with, but again, no change. So if you spray this product on your face, it comes out quite “targeted”, and you’ll end up with big wet patches on your face. For this reason I only use this spray as the first step of my skin care routine (= after cleansing). I use it right before I apply a serum. That way I get to mix the facial spray with the serum. 🙂

All in all, I’m actually very happy with the product. I got used to the spray, and like I said, I’ll buy it again. No doubt!

By the way, Superdrug confirmed that this product contains more than 5% of niacinamide. This is really impressive! Niacinamide is a powerful skin-restoring agent that is known to help with dull skin, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and blemishes. Pretty awesome, right?

Superdrug‘s Calm Skin Skincare De-Stress Refreshing Facial Spritz is available as 100ml for £2.99. On top of that, the Calm Skin collection seems to be on a buy 1 get 1 half price promotion almost all the time. So if you’re not at least trying these products, that’s your own fault really!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Sunburst Sauna

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse‘s Sunburst Sauna face mask.

This face mask is exclusive to Primark where I picked it up for 90p.

Initially I bought 1 mask. But I went back to the store to buy a few more of these masks because I was hoping this one would be the reincarnation of the incredible Grapefruit Sauna mask which I fell in love with.

I’ve now tried this mask, and guess what – it really is the reincarnation of the incredible Grapefruit Sauna mask! Yes! Score! 🙂

OK, now here’s what this mask does. This self-heating mask leaves skin feeling sensationally clean and clear. It really is amazing. Nothing else comes close to this mask’s skin cleansing powers.

One thing: If you leave the mask on for longer (I usually leave masks on for 30+ minutes), you’ll notice that this mask will make your skin feel dry. However, this mask has never irritated my skin, and the initial post-mask dryness is always completely gone within seconds after applying a normal moisturiser. What else? This mask has the most wonderful grapefruit fragrance – it’s 100% delicious!

Montagne Jeunesse‘s Sunburst Sauna face mask is certified cruelty-free, and it’s suitable for vegetarians. It’s approved by BUAV (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo) and by the Vegetarian Society.

Hunny Bee Lavender Face Mask Infused With Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is a review of Hunny Bee’s Lavender Infused With Charcoal Face Mask. This sheet mask promises to be a deep cleansing treatment that purifies the skin and helps get rid of blackheads. It also claims to refine pores.

How does it work? The instructions state that the mask should be left on for 10 to 15 minutes after which you’re supposed to massage the excess serum into your skin. I left the mask on for almost an hour (=until it was dry), and I was really happy with the results!

When I removed the mask I could see that my skin looked clear and refreshed, and that my pores were visibly smaller. This amazing effect lasted for 3 days! I also thought that the serum felt deeply hydrating without being greasy (which was amazing too) ! To sum it up, this skin treatment worked, and I really enjoyed it!

I would recomment this sheet mask to anyone who wants clearer skin. Hunny Bee’s Lavender Infused With Charcoal Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Palmolive So Tempting & Palmolive Be Sensual

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Palmolive limited edition shower gels that I picked up at Superdrug – Palmolive So Tempting with poppy and Palmolive Be Sensual with iris.

Palmolive So Tempting with poppy is extremely nice! If you love Flower by Kenzo, this is the shower gel you need to pick up. And if you don’t like Flower by Kenzo because you think it’s too sweet and too dense, this is still the shower gel you need to pick up! This poppy flower scented shower gel smells wonderfully floral, and it has an airy feel to it which makes it perfectly suitable for even the hottest summer days. Awesome stuff!

Palmolive So Sensual with iris is pretty awesome too. The iris fragrance is sweet, warm and natural. If you love Prada’s Infusion d’Iris, this is the shower gel to go with it!

To sum it up, these 2 Palmolive shower gels are sensational. I could kick myself for not trying them sooner! Palmolive So Tempting with poppy and Palmolive Be Sensual with iris are available as 250ml for about £2 each. I bought these shower gels for £1 each (Superdrug, half price offer).
