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).

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).

Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask

Hi there! I’ve got a face mask review for you today. And it’s about this Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask. This mask promises to calm and soothe skin. The essence contains cucumber juice, sodium hyaluronate and a number of flower, leaf and root extracts.

This mask is supposed to be used on cleansed skin. Simply leave it on for 10-20 minutes. Then massage the leftover essence into your skin. Alrighty, here’s what I think of this mask…

First of all, since the sachet contains A LOT of runny essence, here’s what I’ve done: I enjoyed the sheet mask as recommended. Once it was almost dry, I threw it back into the sachet so it would soak up the remaining essence. Then I enjoyed another sheet mask right away.

But how’s the mask? I think it’s good but not great. I would agree that it’s soothing and calming – but I wouldn’t recommend using it on freshly exfoliated skin because the mask might have the opposite effect. I know because I made this mistake once!

Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask is available as a 20ml single use sheet mask. On the back of the sachet it says that the mask was not tested on animals, and that it’s suitable for vegans. I received a number of these masks as a gift with purchase (Superdrug).

Boots Sheet Mask With Added Collagen

HI there! I’ve got a face mask review for you today – and it’s about this Boots Sheet Mask With Added Collagen. This ultra-thin sheet mask promises to leave skin looking smoother and more radiant.

The mask is easy to use (once you’ve managed to free it from the mask-shaped piece of plastic it’s wrapped around). So… cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. Job done!

I’ve given this mask a try, and I found that it made my skin look smoother. There was no difference in skin radiance (my skin looks quite alright at the moment, so I have no reason to complain right now), but I’ve noticed that this mask plumped up my skin. This was visible on my forehead and around my eyes. Impressive!

Having said this, I won’t repurchase this sheet mask. The piece of plastic that comes with these ultra-thin sheet masks is very annoying, and I don’t like the strong, chemical fragrance. To be fair, the other 2 masks I’ve previously tried and reviewed from this range smelled the same; I haven’t mentioned it before, but now that I’ve used mask number 3, the fragrance registers as unpleasant to me.

Anyhoo, if you’d like to give it a try… Boots Sheet Mask With Added Collagen is available as a 25g single-use sheet mask for £1.50.
