100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Blueberry Blast Mud Masque

Hi there! I’ve got another face mask review for you today, and it’s about Montagne Jeunesse’s Blueberry Blast Mud Masque. This face mask is exclusive to Primark where you can buy it for 90p!

When I tried this mask, I realised that I’ve had this mask before. This mask is the reincarnation of Montagne Jeunesse’s Berrylicious Mud Masque. I’m certainly not complaining because the Berrylicious mask became an instant favourite. So I’m glad to see it was repackaged and not discontinued!

So what’s this mask like? This mask is a regular clay mask. You need to leave it on for about 15 minutes before you rinse it off with water. And once you’ve done that, you’re instantly being rewarded with clearer skin.

This mask really works – and it smells fantastic. I love this mask! My husband loves this mask! I’ve already gone back to Primark to stock up!

By the way, today’s post concludes Face Mask Week. I’m back tomorrow with a haul post. 🙂

Beauty Formulas Rejuvenating Glorious Mud Facial Mask

Beauty Formulas Mud MaskHi there! Today’s post is about this £1 Beauty Formulas Rejuvenating Glorious Mud Facial Mask that I found at Poundworld.

This face mask promises to remove dirt and excess oils from the skin’s surface and to absorb impurities. It also promises to unclog pores and to remove dead skin cells for a fresh skin glow.

Is this mask any good? Yes, absolutely! I think this is a reasonable face mask.

In the beginning the soapy fragrance threw me a little because I was expecting a chocolatey fragrance (yeah, my fault). However, the soapy fragrance is perfectly alright.

I’m also happy with what the mask does to my face because it makes my skin look and feel clearer.

My husband is equally pleased with this face mask. Whilst he thinks that the mask smells a little girly, he’s happy to use it once a week too. Awesome!

Have you tried this mask? If so, how do you like it? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Boots Ingredients Energising & Revitalising Sheet Face Mask With Rooibos

upload-2Hi there! It’s been a while since I tried a new sheet mask, so I gave Boots Ingredients Energising & Revitalising Sheet Face Mask with Rooibos a go.

This sheet mask promises to leave skin feeling revitalised and energised for a whole day – all in 15 minutes. Does it work?

I’ve previously mentioned that the shape of Boots’ Ingredients sheet masks in incredibly awkward, and this mask is no different. However, despite its funny shape, this mask is actually very nice!

OK, so I left the mask on for much longer than 15 minutes (it was something between 30 and 45 minutes). But I always do that. 🙂

And when I took the mask off, my skin looked… energised! I can’t really describe it because most of the time my skin is rather moody (which is my fault because I always stay up late…). So it was surprising to see my skin looking refreshed and full of energy. It was like my skin was saying “let’s go!”

Since there was plenty of serum left in the sachet, I’ve used said serum instead of my night cream for a few days. And I really love what this serum did for my skin!

To make a long story short – I think this mask is awesome, and I will buy it again. I would recommend it to everyone! Just make sure you use up the serum from the sachet, OK?

Boots Ingredients Energising & Revitalising Sheet Face Mask with Rooibos is available for £2.50 at Boots. I got my Ingredients face masks when Boots ran a 2 for £3 promotion.

Have you tried this face mask? If so, how did you like it? Or would you like to try this mask? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Kangsi Pack

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing another face mask – Elizavecca Milky Piggy Kangsi Pack. I’m not entirely sure what this mask promises to do because the manufacturer doesn’t have any information in English. I have, however, found some information about this product online. And based on said information it appears that this mask is supposed to cleanse and to brighten skin. If you read on, I’ll let you know if this mask is any good.

First of all, let’s talk about the ‘what’ and ‘how’. When you squeeze the mask out of the tube, it’s a thick golden liquid. It’s pretty! The mask is easy to apply. Just apply it as if it were a clay mask. Then let it dry for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse it off, and continue with your regular skin care.

Alright! And what does the mask do? Well, the mask changes colour as it dries. It goes from gold to white in a matter of minutes. Once the mask is fully dry, it looks like a bone-dry clay mask that’s just waiting to be washed off! 😀 Oh, and the mask smells of peachy yoghurt and soap. That’s nice!

But what about the actual benefits? Well, I didn’t notice anything. I’ve used the mask 5 or 6 times now, and it doesn’t seem to do anything for my skin. I will continue to use this mask, and if I change my mind, I will report back. However, as of now I’d say that the best thing about this mask is its cool look.

I got my Elizavecca Milky Piggy Kangsi Pack from TK Maxx. I paid £8 for this 150ml tube.

Yves Rocher 3 Min. Cranberry Cooling Effect Mask

Yves Rocher Cooling MaskHi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher’s 3 Min. Cranberry Cooling Effect Mask.

You’re supposed to apply the mask, leave it on for 3 minutes, and wash it off. Yves Rocher recommends the mask be used once or twice a week.

This face mask promises to refresh skin (‘radiant freshness’) thanks to its cooling effect, and to leave skin looking radiant. Does this mask deliver on its promise?

No, not really. First of all, this mask isn’t cooling. I was hoping it would feel fresh or cool, but it didn’t. Ah well…

I also didn’t notice any other effect. My skin didn’t feel or look different, so I’m not convinced that this mask does anything at all.

I will continue to use this face mask on a weekly basis. If I notice any positive effects in the future, I will let you know. However, as of now (after 4 uses) I’d say that I wouldn’t buy this mask again.

Yves Rocher’s Cranberry Cooling Effect Mask. is available as 50ml for £7.50. I got my mask for half price.

Anatomicals Grease Isn’t The Word (Tell Me More, Tell Me More) Mattifying Face Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Anatomicals’ Grease Isn’t The Word (Tell Me More, Tell Me More) Mattifying Face Mask. This mask is 1 of the 3 face masks in Anatomicals’ Now You’re Ready To Face The World trio mask set. I picked up this mask set because the design looked fun. 😉 And it was on special (Save 1/3 offer), so there was no point in not buying it. Alright, now onto the review…

This Anatomicals mask is a regular clay mask. It’s not as thick as the masks that I’m used to (Montagne Jeunesse, Superdrug, Boots). However, I’m OK with this. This mask is mint green in colour (which looks quite cool), and I would describe its fragrance as soapy – it smells alright, but I don’t love the fragrance.

I’m satisfied that this mask cleanses my pores properly, but it doesn’t have a mattifying effect. But then, how could a rinse-off product really have a mattifying effect? Anyway… all in all, this is a reasonable face mask. If the other 2 masks from this set turn out to be equally good, I can definitely see myself buying this mask 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).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Cucumber Cooling Clay Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Superdrug’s Cucumber Cooling Clay Mask.

This mask is aimed at people with sensitive skin, and it promises a deep cleanse.

Well, I agree that this mask makes my skin feel and look cleansed. However, the mask isn’t cooling.

When I applied the mask, it actually felt quite warm for a minute (and it was considerably warmer than a self-heating mask).

The warm sensation went away, and my face was 100% fine afterwards. However, I can see how this might scare people – especially those who have suffered skin reactions in the past.

What else… I think this mas smells fairly nice. It’s the same cucumber fragrance that almost every other cucumber skin care product has. And I happen to like that cucumber fragrance!

Superdrug’s Cucumber Cooling Clay Mask is 100% vegan and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). It’s 99p at Superdrug, In addition, Superdrug often runs 3 for 2 promotions on face masks!

By the way, this week’s going to be face mask week. I’ve tried quite a few new face masks, and I’ve already written the reviews. And I want to post those reviews! In theory, I could save these reviews for later, but I don’t really want to sit on completed posts, so… I hope you enjoy face mask week! 😀
