Mitomo Retinol Facial Essence Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Mitomo Retinol Facial Essence Mask. This mask contains retinol, aloe vera extract and sodium hyaluronate. It’s a leave-on 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.

Mad Beauty Disney Aurora True Love’s Kiss Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Mad Beauty Disney Aurora True Love’s Kiss Face Mask. This face mask contains niacinamide, pro-vitamin B5, lavender, cucumber and peach extracts, etc. It promises to have a relaxing and calming effect on the skin.

How does it work? Cleanse your face, put on the mask, leave it on for 10 minutes, then wash it off. I prefer leave-on sheet masks, but hey ho…

I’ve been through 6 of the 8 Mad Beauty Disney face masks that I bought, and this is my favourite so far. The mask smells pleasantly of lavender (some of the other masks had a strong chemical smell), and it feels refreshing and certainly relaxing. If it was a leave-on mask, I’d even buy it again!

If you’re interested, Mad Beauty Disney Aurora True Love’s Kiss Face Mask is available as a 25ml single-use face mask for £3 (Superdrug). I paid £1.50 (sale).

Skin Treats Ginger Radiating Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Ginger Radiating Sheet Mask which promises to be a “vibrant facial experience” that rejuvenates and revitalises the skin and improves the skin’s elasticity.

This is a normal sheet mask. Use it after you’ve cleansed your face. Leave the mask on for about 15 minutes, then take it off and massage the leftover essence from the sachet into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s nice and refreshing. For the first 15 or so seconds, there was a tingling sensation on my skin. Scary! Fortunately, the tingling went away quickly. Phew! I would agree that the mask made my skin feel revitalised, so based on this alone, I’d use the mask again. I also liked that the mask didn’t leave a sticky film on my skin. The fresh ginger scent was very subtle and pleasant. Good stuff!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask. But always make sure to check the ingredients, and if in doubt, please do a patch test! If you’re interested, Skin Treats Ginger Radiating Sheet Mask is available as a 20ml single use sheet mask for £1 (B&M Bargains).

Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel for all skin types.

This face wash promises to cleanse skin deeply without drying it out, and it also claims to achieve brighter looking skin within 14 days.

I started to use this product just under 2 weeks ago, and I think it’s good but not great.

I’m using this face wash with a konjac sponge, and I found that a tiny drop will lather up very well. Great if you don’t want to use a lot of product.

I can’t comment on whether this face wash is indeed brightening. I’ve been using glycolic acid products for a while now, and I’m not expecting a face wash to outperform those products. But if you’re not using any other brightening products, I think this face wash might be good starter product.

I am very happy with how well this face wash cleanses my skin. It leaves my skin feeling and looking clean and refreshed.

At the same time, I’m very happy to confirm that the face wash doesn’t feel drying at all, so it’s definitely suitable for my very dry and moody skin. Well done, Boots!

However, here’s the big but – the scent. The face wash doesn’t smell bad or artificial. But it smells very strongly of yuzu. I’ve used yuzu-scented products for the past few months, and I can’t stand them anymore. I usually love all things citrus, but I’m literally done with yuzu-scented stuff. I might change my mind at some point in the future. And the next person might love how this face wash smells – so this is not the most objective finding. But because of its scent, I won’t repurchase this face wash.

Having said this, I think that, in most aspects, this is a really good face wash, and I’d recommend it (unless you’re not keen on yuzu-scented products either).

Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel is available as 100ml for £4. Mine was free (3 for 2 offer, and this was the freebie I chose on top of the other 2 products I bought that day!).

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Vitamin C Revitalizing Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Primark PS… Vitamin C Revitalizing Bubble Sheet Mask which I picked up a litte while ago. This sheet mask promises to cleanse and revitalise the skin, and it claims to enhance the skin’s radiance. How does it work? Cleanse your face, put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes, then take it off and wash your face.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s excellent. It’s one of the best bubble masks I’ve ever tried. The bubble effect is very strong – it keeps bubbling for at least 45 minutes (that’s when I decided to, finally, take it off). The mask had an instant brightening effect, my pores looked smaller, and my complexion looked a lot more refreshed.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this sheet mask. I will stock up as soon as Primark reopens. If you’re interested, Primark PS… Vitamin C Revitalizing Bubble Sheet Mask is available as a 20g single-use mask for £1.50. Also, this sheet mask is bio-degradable, and it’s certified cruelty-free – it carries the Leaping Bunny logo! 😍

Home Bargains Avocado Moisturising Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Home Bargains Avocado Moisturising Face Mask. I love Home Bargains, so I was happy to pick up their “own brand” face masks. This is a regular sheet mask. Use it after you’ve cleansed your skin. Leave it on for 15+ minutes, then take it off and massage the leftover essence from the sachet into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! The sheet mask is ultra-thin, the essence is refreshing and deeply hydrating without being overly sticky, and the mask has a very faint “cosmetic” scent which is perfectly pleasant. The mask felt great on, and my skin loved the essence!

I didn’t expect this mask to be great, but based on my experience, I’d recommend it for sure! Home Bargains Avocado Moisturising Face Mask is available as a 25ml single-use sheet mask for 79p at Home Bargains!

Skin Treats Yummy Hot Chocolate Super Softening Printed Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Yummy Hot Chocolate Super Softening Printed Face Mask. This is a normal sheet mask. Start with cleansing your face, then put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s OK. It doesn’t smell of chocolate – it doesn’t even come close. The mask is rather sticky – not a fan. And the print on the mask itself is a random mix of brownish stuff – not sure what, but it’s nothing chocolatey. I found the mask to be hydrating, but there are better masks out there – masks that smell better and aren’t that sticky.

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

Skin Techniques Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this detoxifying and cleansing Skin Techniques Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask. On the back it says that the bubble foam formula with charcoal removes impurities and firms pores whilst the mud hydrates the skin.

Before you use this mask, you’re supposed to cleanse your skin. Once done, simply put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes, then take it off and rinse your face.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I didn’t care for it. The bubble effect is minimal, and the mask had no visible effect on my skin. My skin also didn’t feel better or worse, so based on my experience I’d say that the mask did nothing.

I won’t buy this mask again, but if you’re interested, Skin Techniques Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask is available as a 25ml single-use sheet mask for £1 (B&M Bargains).

Masked Beauty Apple & Green Tea Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Masked Beauty Apple & Green Tea Sheet Mask which I picked up from my local B&M Bargains store.

This sheet mask contains sodium hyaluronate, green tea, apple and lemon fruit extracts as well as a few more botanical extracts. The sheet mask itself is made from bamboo fibre, and it’s bio-degradable – yay!

How does it work? This is a regular leave-on sheet mask. Wash your face, put the mask on, relax for 15 minutes, then take it off and massage the remaining essence into your skin. Job done!

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good. It feels very refreshing and nourishing at the same time, it feels great on, and it makes my skin feel and look simply amazing. Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask (and I’ll buy it again soon).

Masked Beauty Apple & Green Tea Sheet Mask is available as a single-use sheet mask for £1 (B&M Bargains).
