Beauty Formulas Deep Cleansing Gold Gel Cleanser & Peel Off Mask

Hi there! Not too long ago I picked up this Beauty Formulas Deep Cleansing Gold Gel Cleanser & Peel-Off Mask (£1, B&M Bargains). This is a 2-step “treatment” that promises to cleanse skin deeply.

The gel cleanser works like any other normal face wash. Splash a bit of water in your face, massage the cleanser into your skin so that it lathers up, then rinse with water.

The mask is easy to use too. Apply it your cleansed face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then simply peel it off. Now read on if you’d like to know if this cleanser and mask duo is any good. 😎

The gel cleanser is really nice. It smells fresh (citrus + something I can’t put my finger on), it lathers up well, and it cleanses my skin gently and effectively. If I find this cleanser in a bottle, I’ll buy it!

The peel off mask is one of the best peel off masks I’ve ever tried. It pulls the gunk right out of your pores. If you want to try this mask, please make sure you don’t get it in your eyebrows and / or hair to avoid unwanted hair removal. This is powerful stuff!

I’d recommend this Beauty Formulas Deep Cleansing Gold Gel Cleanser & Peel-Off Mask to anyone who wants an effective peel off mask. Priced at £1, this mask is a total steal!

Maxbrands Alpaca Face Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask that I found at my local Home Bargains store – Maxbrands Alpaca Face Sheet Mask. This face mask contains cucumber extract, and it promises to help improve skin’s elasticity and to boost the skin.

This is a normal sheet mask – you place it onto your cleansed face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then bin the mask, and massage the leftover essence from the sachet into your face. Job done! Read on if you’d like to know if this mask is any good. 🙂

Whilst I’m still not sure what boosting the skin is supposed to mean, I’m satisfied that this mask feels deeply hydrating without being sticky. This mask also seems to plump up my skin – I guess this is what boosting the skin might refer to…

Having said this, I think this mask could smell nicer. Parfum is listed as the last ingredient on the list, so there can’t be much fragrance in it. However, some people prefer products with little or no added fragrance, so if this is what you like, this mask might be worth a try.

Maxbrands Alpaca Face Sheet Mask is available as 25ml. I paid 79p (Home Bargains).

Have you tried this mask or would you like to try it? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Blemish Mud

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Blemish Mud face mask which is aimed at people with problem skin.

This clay mask contains aloe vera and willow, and it works like pretty much every other clay mask out there. Cleanse your face, apply the mask, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then rinse it off. Job done!

How’s the mask? I think this is an effective clay mask. It’s deeply cleansing, but not drying. I like it a lot, and I will buy it again for sure!

Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Blemish Mud face mask is 100% cruelty-free. The mask is available as 10ml for about £1. I usually pick up face masks when there’s a 3 for 2 offer.

The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer And Clear “Nice” Stay In Control Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a sheet mask I’m glad I dug up from TK Maxx’s clearance section – The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer And Clear “Nice” Stay In Control Face Mask.

This face mask promises to balance skin tone, to reduce inflammation and puffiness, and to combat acne and oil. On the back of the sachet it says that the mask can be used “to deeply cleanse and detoxify” skin. This sounds great!

I’ve now given this mask a try (well, 2 tries, actually), and I think it’s very good. This is a standard sheet mask that’s supposed to left on the face for 15-20 minutes. I left it on until the mask was dry, and I was (still am) happy with the results.

This mask doesn’t feel sticky, but it feels deeply hydrating and refreshing. A look at the back of the sachet reveals that sodium hyaluronate is the 4th ingredient – this is great! This mask also contains a number of botanical extracts – with lemon fruit extract being one of them. I have no doubt this is why the mask made my skin look and feel clean, clear, refreshed and bright!

I think this is another great mask from The Crème Shop! I’m very happy I picked it up! The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer And Clear “Nice” Stay In Control Face Mask is available as part of a set containing 3 Naughty and 3 Nice face masks – that’s 6 masks in total. I paid £5.99 for the set (TK Maxx).

Primark PS… Brightening Foaming Bubble Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I tried not too long ago – Primark‘s PS… Brightening Foaming Bubble Mask.

This face mask promises to cleanse and to brighten skin. Primark recommends the mask be used weekly.

How does it work? Apply the mask to your face and relax for 15 minutes whilst the mask bubbles up.

Is it any good? I don’t think this mask is anything special. My skin didn’t look or feel different. And I didn’t notice any other difference to my skin at all. But I had a similar mask from Primark before, so I already knew not to expect too much.

What’s good? To be fair, this mask smells very nice (it smells of peach and tea), and I think it’s great fun to use.

If you’d like to give it a try, Primark‘s PS… Brightening Foaming Bubble Mask is available as 10ml for 80p.

Garnier Skin Active Matcha + Kaolin Mask

Hi there! ☺️ Today I’m reviewing this Garnier Skin Active Matcha + Kaolin Mask which I picked up for £1 (Poundland).

This face mask contains matcha tea and kaolin clay, and it promises to cleanse pores and to purify skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I’m very happy with it.

When I applied the mask, the first thing I noticed was the gorgeous white tea fragrance. It’s mildly refreshing, it’s clean, it’s perfect.

The mask dries quickly without making skin feel uncomfortable. This is nice. After I’d rinsed off the mask, my skin felt squeaky clean but not stripped. I loved how my skin felt and looked.

Based on my experience, I would recommend this face mask to anyone who wants an effective clay mask.

Garnier Skin Active Matcha + Kaolin Mask is available as an 8ml single-use face mask. I will buy it again, no doubt!

Skin Treats Blueberry Detox Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Blueberry Detox Sheet Mask. This sheet mask contains 10+ botanical and fruit extracts, and it promises to cleanse and purify the skin.

This mask works like the majority of sheet masks – cleanse your face, apply the sheet mask to your face, leave it on for about 15 minutes (I leave sheet masks on until they’re dry), massage the leftover essence into the skin – and you’re good to go!

I’ve given this mask a try, but I don’t think I’ll buy it again. The mask itself is one of those terrible low quality masks which will have lost their shape by the time you’ve unwrapped them. By the time I had placed it on my face, the mask looked like it had been in a fight.

I found the essence to be refreshing, and I’m happy to report that it didn’t feel sticky at all. However, the mask didn’t make any difference to my skin. Based on my experience, I’m not convinced of its cleansing or purifying powers…

If you’d like to give Skin Treats Blueberry Detox Sheet Mask a try, it’s 99p at Savers and B&M Bargains.
