Simple Rich Moisture Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Simple Rich Moisture Sheet Mask. This sheet mask claims to be the “perfect antidote to dry city skin”. It contains a small number of botanical extracts which promise to “infuse active ingredients into the skin”.

This sheet mask is supposed to be used post-cleansing. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin…

I’ve given this mask a try, and I’m satisfied that it delivers on its promise. The essence is rich and hydrating without feeling heavy or being sticky. I’m happy with the fit of the mask too! All in all, I’d recommend this mask, and I know I’ll buy it again!

Simple Rich Moisture Sheet Mask is available as a 21ml single-use face mask. I paid £1.49 (B&M Bargains).

Primark PS… Brightening Peel-Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS Brightening Peel-Off Mask with pomegranate fruit extract and vitamin E. The instructions state that you should… apply the mask to your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, peel it off, then wash your face – and you’re good to go.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I don’t think that it has any brightening effect at all. I found the mask a bit more difficult to peel off, so I’m satisfied that it does remove dead skin cells. Still, I won’t repurchase this mask because there are much more effective peel-off masks out there, like Beauty Formulas’ amazing cleanser and mask duo or Maxbrands’ sensational gold mask.

Anyhoo… if you’re interested, Primark‘s PS Brightening Peel-Off Mask is available as 10ml for 80p.

SpaLife Hydrating Facial Mask

Hi there! I’ve got a skin care for you today – and it’s about this SpaLife Hydrating Facial Mask with collagen, aloe vera leaf juice, volcanic ash, CoQ10, vitamin E, and anise fruit extract (etc). This sheet mask promises to hydrate and renew skin for a glowing complexion. It also claims to have anti-ageing benefits and to reverse years of sun damage.

Using this mask is easy – just cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 20 minutes or longer, then massage the remaining essence into the skin. I used 4 of these masks already, and here’s what I think…

This sheet mask is absolutely brilliant! It’s deeply hydrating and nourishing, it makes my skin feel super soft, and whilst I can’t comment on whether it does anything to reverse sun damage, I’m happy to report that this mask soothes angry skin and that it makes my skin look bright and radiant. Truly outstanding stuff!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask. If you have dry skin, this one’s worth checking out! SpaLife Hydrating Facial Masks are available as packs of 6. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Olay Essentials Glow Perfectors BB Cream Light

Hi there! Today’s post is about the facial moisturiser that I’ve been using for almost 3 weeks now – Olay Essentials Glow Perfectors BB Cream. I bought the shade “Light“. This product is a moisturising cream mixed with a Max Factor Foundation. It contains niacinamide, vitamins B and E, pro-vitamin B5, as well as SPF 15.

This moisturiser promises 24-hour hydration and an even complexion for a perfect everyday look. Alrighty… read on if you’d like to know if this product is any good.

I like this product, but I don’t love it. First of all, the shade light is way too dark for pale girls. I have to mix it with my pale winter foundation (Max Factor Pan Stik 12 True Beige) because it looks grotesque if I use it with my regular foundation (Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair). When blended with my pale winter foundation, it does look good.

I’m happy to report that this BB Cream is very hydrating, and that it plays well with all the makeup products I apply on top of it. So based on this, I have no reason to complain. However, whilst I will finish this product for sure, I won’t repurchase it because it just isn’t the most suitable moisturiser for me.

If you’re interested, Olay Essentials Glow Perfectors BB Cream is available as 50ml. I paid £3.50 (clearance).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug B. Comforted Camomile Facial Spritz

Hi there! Happy Friday! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s B. Comforted Camomile Facial Spritz.

This product promises to replenish and to soften skin. It’s aimed at all skin types.

On the back of the spray it says that the product contains a blend of rose, plum, chestnut and camomile, and that it’s suitable for sensitive skin.

I use this product as the first product (that’s after I’ve washed my face in the shower) in my morning skin care routine. Five sprays of this product along with a few drops of serum or facial oil work wonders for me.

I also use the spray in conjunction with my day cream, my foundation and as part of my night time skin care routine.

And, of course, I use it in between too – basically every time I feel that my skin needs a little extra hydration or when I’m bored. 😁

Having said this, this product has a strong fragrance. It’s a strange mix of camomile and marzipan (or something else that’s simillarly sweet).

I would have loved the fragrance as a teenager, but now that I’m in my thirties, I find this kind of scent a bit annoying. Because of this, I won’t repuchase this product (I’ll buy the vitamin version instead).

Superdrug‘s B. Comforted Camomile Facial Spritz is suitable for vegans, and it’s certified cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny). It’s available as 75ml for £8.99. I paid £3.89 when Superdrug ran a Better Than Half Price promotion on B. products.

Bioré Charcoal Whipped Purifying Detox Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Bioré Charcoal Whipped Purifying Detox Mask. This is a cooling mask that promises to purify the skin. You’re supposed to leave this mask on for 5 minutes – then wash it off with warm water. I’ve given this mask a try, and here’s what I think…

I think this mask is sensational! I didn’t care for the cooling effect, but this mask is amazing in every other way. First of all, the mask didn’t dry which made it easy to rinse it off. The mask made my pores appear much, much smaller, it made my skin look matte and clear, and it didn’t cause any redness or dry patches. This is great!

Before I used the mask I had a few minor impurities and 2 red spots – by the time I had washed the mask off, one of the red spots had shrunk to a tiny little pink dot and the other one had disappeared along with all the minor impurities. Wow! WOW!

The best thing is that one sachet provided enough product for me and for my husband. So we got 2 face masks for the price of 1! If you’re interested, Bioré Charcoal Whipped Purifying Detox Mask is available as 15ml. I paid £1 (Savers).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug B. Hydrated Leave On Face Mask, Superdrug B. Detoxed Clay Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 face masks – Superdrug’s B. Hydrated Leave On Face Mask and Superdrug’s B. Detoxed Clay Face Mask. These masks are cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny certified) and suitable for vegans.

Superdrug’s B. Hydrated Leave On Face Mask promises to lock in moisture, to improve skin comfort and to reduce the appearance of dry and flaky skin. You’re supposed to leave this mask on for 10-15 minutes, then massage in into your skin.

My experience with this mask was horrible. Within seconds of applying the mask, my face felt like it was on fire. It took me less than 10 seconds to jump up and to run to the bathroom. But even after I’ve washed this disgusting stuff off, my face felt terrible for hours, and some skin started to flake off over the next two days! 😲 This mask is a strong contender for Worst Product Of The Year!

B. Detoxed Clay Face Mask promises to absorb dirt and debris (yes, it really says “debris”), to refresh and brighten the skin, and to minimise pores. This mask is supposed to be applied to cleansed skin, left on to dry for about 15 minutes and then rinsed off.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I’m happy to report that it’s cleansing and refreshing. I think my pores looked a bit smaller for half a day too. The mask is not brightening, but I didn’t expect this anyway, so that’s OK. I might repurchase this mask!

If you’re interested, Superdrug’s B. Hydrated Leave On Face Mask and B. Detoxed Clay Face Mask are available as 10ml for £2.99 each. I picked these up when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 1 Free promotion (which they do fairly frequently).
