100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Matte Priming Peel Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Prep & Perfect Matte Firming Peel Off Mask which contains charcoal powder as well as a number of botanical extracts (hollyhock, bergamot, etc). This face mask promises to draw out impurities, to remove oil and to refine pores.

You’re supposed to apply the mask to cleansed skin, leave it on for about 15 minutes (or until it’s dry), then peel it off, wash your face… and you’re good to go! Read on if you’d like to know if this mask is any good…

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s perfectly average. I’m sure the mask removes dead skin cells, but I doubt it does much else. It’s simply not powerful enough. I haven’t seen or felt any difference, and I won’t repurchase this mask.

Primark‘s PS… Prep & Perfect Matte Firming Peel Off Mask is available as a 10ml single-use face mask for 80p. This face mask – just like any other Primark beauty product – is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads with goji berry and kakadu plum extracts. These pads promise to cleanse skin and to remove impurities, excess oil and makeup – including mascara.

They also claim to leave skin feeling softer, smoother and visibly brighter. I’ve been using these pads on and off for over a month now, and here’s what I think!

I’m enjoying these cleansing pads very much! I use them instead of a toner, and I’m happy to report that they’re effective at removing all sorts of gunk, and that they’re gentle enough to be used around the eyes (which was expected since they claim to remove mascara).

These pads aren’t as powerful as Superdrug’s Glycolic Acid Pads, but these pads are perfect if you have sensitive or delicate skin that doesn’t tolerate AHAs, BHAs and the likes, or if you want an all-in-one pad that you can use around your eyes.

Superdrug‘s Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads (which are vegan and certified cruelty-free) are available for £4.99 (for 60 pads), and most of the time there’s also a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price offer on Superdrug’s Vitamin C products!

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Plumping Sheet Mask

Hi there! I’ve got a skin care review for you today, and it’s about Primark’s PS… Plumping Sheet Mask with vitamin E, panthenol, papaya fruit extract, anise extract and witch hazel. The mask promises to nourish and to plump up skin. And the actual sheet mask itself is bio-degradable – awesome stuff!

This mask is easy to use – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin and follow with your regular skin care.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! It feels deeply hydrating, and I would agree that it has a plumping effect. When I took the mask off, my face was glowing! I will buy this mask again, and I would recommend it.

Primark’s PS… Plumping Sheet Mask with vitamin E is cruelty-free. It’s Leaping Bunny certified – like all of Primark’s own brand beauty products. And it’s 80p!

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).

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Dead Sea Mineral Cleansing Masque AND Avocado Oil & Walnut Exfoliating Masque

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing a face mask duo – it’s Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Dead Sea Mineral Cleansing Masque AND Avocado Oil & Walnut Exfoliating Masque. I bought this face mask duo at my local Savers drugstore – and I paid 69p!

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Dead Sea Mineral Cleansing Masque with seaweed, sea salts and aloe vera is a nice face mask. I didn’t care for the seaweed scent, but I was happy with this mask’s skin cleansing powers. Thumbs up!

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Avocado Oil & Walnut Exfoliating Masque was surprisingly nice too. I don’t usually use face scrubs with crushed walnut shells or apricot pits because they’re generally too harsh for the face. However, this scrub mask wasn’t harsh at all. It was effective, I did enjoy it, and I would recommend it.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Dead Sea Mineral Cleansing Masque AND Avocado Oil & Walnut Exfoliating Masque is available as a face mask duo. I’ve also seen (and purchased) other varieties, so if you’re interested in trying out new face masks, you should swing by your local Savers drugstore.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Orange Oil & Vitamin C Peel-Off Masque AND Cucumber & Apple Reviving Masque

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing a face mask duo – Montagne Jeunesse’s Face Food Orange Oil & Vitamin C Peel-Off Masque and Cucumber & Apple Reviving Masque. I found this face mask duo at my local Savers drugstore, and I think it was 69p only which is a total bargain for any face mask!

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Orange Oil & Vitamin C Peel-Off Masque claims to peel away impurities and dead skin cells. It contains vitamin C as well as a number of botanical extracts. I don’t care for the cheap orange fragrance, but I think this is a decent face mask that made my skin feel feel softer.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Cucumber & Apple Reviving Masque promises to give skin a deep cleanse. I think this is an effective clay mask that does what it claims to do. This mask left my skin feeling refreshed and purified, and I was happy with the result.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Pink Clay Purifying Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Pink Clay Purifying Mask.

This face mask contains mineral-enriched rosa clay. It claims to draw out impurities and to absorb excess oils, and to leave skin feeling fresher and looking brighter. This sounds promising!

This mask is easy to use – apply it to cleansed skin, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then wash off. The usual.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I like it. Whilst it didn’t brighten skin, I’m happy to confirm that this mask gave my skin a deep cleanse.

I also liked that the mask didn’t make my skin feel uncomfortable at any point.

Superdrug‘s Pink Clay Purifying Mask is available as 15ml for 99p, but Superdrug runs a 3 for 2 promotion on face masks most of the time. This face mask is also certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo), and it’s suitable for vegans.
