OM SHE Aromatherapy Skin Lifting Hydrating Face Serum

Hi there! Today’s post is about a product I picked up not too long ago – OM SHE Aromatherapy Skin Lifting Hydrating Face Serum. This product promises smoother, firmer and more radiant skin. It’s suitable for all skin types, and it’s safe for use around the eyes.

This product contains 16 ingredients only! And amongst those 16 ingredients there are damascena rose flower water and flower oil, rosehip seed oil (to nourish skin), sodium hyaluronate (to bind moisture), hydrolised collagen and vitamins C and E (to brighten and protect from free radicals). I’ve been using this serum for over a month now. And if you read on, I’ll tell you if it’s any good. 🙂

The serum is a non-greasy clear gel. When I apply the serum, it doesn’t feel nourishing. It feels watery. And once the serum is absorbed it makes my skin feel dry. The first 2 days it was OK, but on the 3rd day I could see that my skin looked dry under my make-up.

I haven’t introduced any new products to my daily skin care routine (I sill use the same hyaluronic acid spray, moisturiser, cleanser, face wash, toner, etc.). So it’s pretty clear that this serum isn’t anywhere near as hydrating as it promises to be. Disappointing!

I will continue to use the serum – in conjunction with the greasiest (!) moisturiser I have. This seems to work, but it’s not perfect. And it doesn’t look perfect. But there’s an upside – I finally get to finish that greasy moisturiser! Yay! 😀

I got my OM SHE Aromatherapy Skin Lifting Hydrating Face Serum from TK Maxx. I paid £4.99 for the 30ml serum.

Super Facialist By Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask

Hi there! I’ve got another face mask review for you today. 🙂

It’s about the Super Facialist By Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask that I picked up a little while ago.

I think it’s quite obvious what the mask promises to do. However, I’ll summarise things anyway. So… this mask contains salicylic acid and Dead Sea mud – 2 ingredients known for their oil-absorbing and skin-purifying properties.

In addition, this mask contains acacia honey and vitamins A, D and E which rebalance the skin.

All in all, this mask promises clearer and fresher looking skin. This sounds great!

Does it work? Yes! This mask is really powerful! When I used the mask for the first time, I could tell that it would be awesome. The mask felt cool and slightly tingly – and it was pleasant. It wasn’t “too much” and it didn’t feel scary. It just felt good!

And the results were quite impressive as well. This mask made my skin look and feel clearer and more even, it made my pores look smaller, and my complexion looked brighter as well. So yes, this mask does what it says on the tube!

I would recommend this face mask to everyone who’s looking for a clear skin product that really works. The Super Facialist By Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask is available as 125ml for £9.99 (Boots). I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Have you tried this mask? Or would you like to try it? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Oh, and by the way, face mask week is officially over. I’m back tomorrow with a skin care review. 🙂

Anatomicals Farewell The Scarlet Pimplehell Deep Cleansing Mud Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask that I recently tried – Anatomicals Farewell The Scarlet Pimplehell Deep Cleansing Mud Mask. This mask is 1 of the 3 masks in Anatomicals’ Now You’re Ready To Face The World mask set. I’ve already reviewed the other 2 masks from the set, and you can read the reviews here and here.

I think that Farewell The Scarlet Pimplehell is a great name for a face mask. It sounds fun. And it sounds promising. I’ve tried this mask and I’m reasonably happy with it. It’s a fairly standard mud mask. It doesn’t smell very fancy, and its colour is grey. But it cleanses my skin nicely, and that’s the most important thing.

All in all I’m happy with Anatomicals’ Now You’re Ready To Face The World trio mask set. I’m pretty sure I’ll buy the set again. Anatomicals’ Now You’re Ready To Face The World trio mask set is available for £3 at Superdrug. I paid £2 only for the set (Save 1/3 offer).

By the way, this week is face mask week on my blog. This means that I’ll post 7 face mask reviews this week. I hope you’ll enjoy face mask week! Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Best Accessory Group My Beauty Spot Brightening Animal Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about My Beauty Spot’s Brightening Animal Face Mask by Best Accessory Group (B.A.G.). This sheet mask with cotton seed extract promises a brighter and more even skin tone. All you have to do is leave the mask on for 15 minutes, then massage the excess serum into your skin. Done! If you read on, I’ll let you know if this mask is any good. 🙂

I’ve used two of these panda face masks and I’m happy with the result. Here’s what I did… I left my mask on for a lot longer than 15 minutes. Since the serum is supposed to be massaged into the skin anyway, I left the mask on until it was dry. When I took off the mask, my skin tone looked brighter and more even. So yes, this mask delivers on its promise!

However, I need to mention one teeny tiny issue… the serum feels very sticky on the skin. So I recommend you apply your regular night cream on top of the serum as soon as you take off the mask. That way you’ll make the most of the serum, and your face will feel great.

All in all, I’m glad I bought these face masks. The pack of 5 was £4.99 (TK Maxx) which is good value. 🙂 And in case you were wondering, this is what the mask looks like!

Elizavecca Gold CF Nest Collagen Jella Pack Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Elizavecca’s Gold CF Nest Collagen Jella Pack. This face mask is a peel-off mask that promises to remove dead skin cells, provide hydration, brighten skin, and improve skin’s elasticity.

How does it work? You’re supposed to apply the mask, leave it on (and let it dry) for 30 minutes, then peel it off and enjoy (?) the results. I’ve used this mask several times now, and if you read on, I’ll tell you more. 🙂
elizavecca-collagen-jella-pack
I hate to say it, but this mask doesn’t deliver any noticeable results. It doesn’t make my skin look or feel better, it doesn’t brighten my skin, it doesn’t do anything for skin elasticity… this mask hasn’t done anything for me.

But let me mention 2 more things! First of all, you have to apply a thick layer of product, otherwise you won’t be able to peel it off. If you try not to be wasteful, it will backfire because if the mask is too thin, you’ll have to rub it off (!), and it’ll flake like something out of a horror movie.

The second thing I need to mention is that the mask isn’t hydrating at all. When you remove the mask, your skin will feel like it’s been slathered in lard. It’s not hydrating, it’s just disgusting.

If you’d like to try this mask, do it first thing in the morning because you’ll want to shower and wash your hair afterwards. Oh, in case you’re wondering… I paid £8 for this mask (not sure about the size – TK Maxx said it’s 80ml, but there’s no info at all on the packaging).

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Chocolate Orange Self-Heating Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Chocolate Orange Self-Heating Mask.

This face mask for normal to dry skin types promises to cleanse and hydrate skin.

This mask is almost like every other mask – you slather it on, leave it alone for about 15 minutes, and then you rinse it off.

I’ve now tried this mask, and I think it’s great.

I can see and feel that this mask cleanses my skin. It even tightens my pores. This awesome mask gives me instant results!

The chocolate orange fragrance is pleasant – it’s sweet and christmassey. 🙂

Superdrug Chocolate Orange Self-Heating Mask is available for 99p (and there’s usually a 3 for 2 offer as well). This mask is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo), and it’s suitable for vegetarians.
