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).

L’Oréal Youth Code Luminizer BB Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about L’Oréal‘s Youth Code Luminizer BB Cream (light shade, import from Germany) which I picked up for £4.99 at my local B&M Bargains store. This BB cream with SPF 15 promises 24-hour hydration and luminous skin.

It also claims to cover up blemishes and to make skin discolourations appear less visible. L’Oréal also says that, after 2 weeks, the skin looks more radiant and more even.
L'Oreal Luminizer BB Cream
I’ve been using this BB cream almost every day for just over a month now. And I’m satisfied that it hydrates my skin well. It does cover up minor skin discolourations, but it doesn’t replace a foundation. In addition, the light shade is way too dark for me, so I wouldn’t be able to wear the bb cream on its own anyway.

Having said that, this BB cream sits well under my foundation. No issues at all! However, I don’t think that my skin looks more radiant or more even. But I’ve been using all sorts of brightening products for some time now, so at this point I wouldn’t expect a random day moisturiser to pack a punch.

All in all, this is a nice BB cream. I would definitely recommend it to everyone who’s looking for a rich day moisturiser that plays well with foundation. The 50ml tube is £4.99 only (B&M Bargains) which is a total steal!

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Red Hot Earth Sauna Masque. I’ve had this mask in my stash for quite a while. And I could kick myself for not trying it sooner!

Why? This mask is the exact same thing as Montagne Jeunesse’s Grapefruit Sauna and Sunburst Sauna! What does that mean? This mask is a powerful self-heating mask. It sucks the grease right out of my pores! 😁

If you’re looking for an effective cleansing mask, I would recommend this one. I think it’s one of the best cleansing masks out there!

The Crème Shop Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask With Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask with Charcoal. The product promises to detox troubled or sensitive skin so that you can wake up with renewed and purified skin – even after a short night.

How does it work? On the back of the box it says… massage an even layer into your skin – right before bedtime. Focus on dry areas, and leave the product to do its magic overnight. And wake up to hydrated and brighter skin.

I really like the idea of an overnight gel mask. However, it’s just a fancy name for a night cream. 😉 Having said that, I love the gel formula! It’s awesome fun! I’m also satisfied that this product moisturises my skin without greasing it up, and that it helps maintain my skin’s brightness. Another thing I need to mention is the soapy fragrance – it’s clean and pleasant. Nice!

All in all, I think this is a nice and fun product, and I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys a good skin care product at a reasonable price. The Crème Shop‘s Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask with Charcoal is available as 50ml for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

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!

The Crème Shop Charcoal Face Mask

HI there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Charcoal Face Mask. This face mask with activated charcoal promises to tighten pores and to combat acne by drawing toxins out of the skin. The product also claims to promote a balanced and flawless complexion.

You’re supposed to leave the mask on for 20 – 30 minutes, or until the mask is dry (which is what I do). Don’t wash it off! Just proceed with your normal skin care routine. 🙂

I’ve already used 2 of these masks, and I think they’re brilliant. They make my pores appear smaller and they really have a skin-balancing effect. I’ve also noticed that these masks soothe my skin, so I love to use them when my skin is moody. These masks really work, and I would recommend them to everyone!

The Crème Shop‘s Charcoal Face Masks are available as packs of 5 for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Resveratrol Face Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing The Crème Shop‘s Resveratrol Face Mask. Resveratrol is a natural antioxidant that can be found in dark chocolate and red wine. It promises to reduce inflammation, to reverse skin damange and to make skin appear smoother.

You’re supposed to leave the mask on for 20 – 30 minutes, or until the mask is dry (which is what I do). Don’t wash it off! Just proceed with your normal skin care routine. 🙂

So how’s the mask? I think it’s great! The serum is really powerful. It made my lines disappear for just over a day. It was impressive! I also loved the feel and the fragrance of the serum. My skin felt pampered, and the fragrance is what I imagine gummiberry juice to smell (and maybe taste) like. 😊

I’d recommend The Crème Shop‘s Resveratrol Face Mask in an instant. If you’d like to try this mask, TK Maxx sells packs of 5 sheet masks for £4.99 which is great value!
