Hi there! Today’s post is about this Masking Detoxing Charcoal & Menthol Sheet Face Mask. This sheet mask promises (I’m quoting Tesco here:) “to help gently remove build-up while unblocking pores without stripping skin of moisture.”
How does it work? Cleanse your face, put the mask on and leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then take it off and pat the remaining essence into your skin or remove it using a cotton pad.
I’ve given this mask a try, and I found it quite good. I can’t comment on whether this mask would actually give skin a deep cleanse. There are other products, such as face washes, scrubs, sponges, toners etc which would be more suited to this particular skin care need. However, I found the mask refreshig and reviving, and I liked that! The mask was a bit sticky though, and I’m deducting an imaginary point for that.
But all in all, this is a good mask. If you’re interested, Masking Detoxing Charcoal & Menthol Sheet Face Mask is available as a 20ml single-use sheet mask for £1 (Tesco). Also, according to the manufacturer, this sheet mask is cruelty-free and suitable for vegans!

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Masking Beautifying Rose & Green Tea Sheet Face Mask which I found at my local Tesco store. I’ve never seen this brand before, but these masks were cheap and they claimed to be vegan & cruelty-free, so I picked up 2 of them (different ones).
This mask with rose and green tea extracts promises to hydrate skin for a healthy glow. You’re supposed to use the mask after you’ve cleansed your face. Just leave the mask on for about 15 minutes, and then massage the excess serum into your skin.
I didn’t expect much from this mask, but it’s actually very good! The essence felt deeply hydrating without leaving a sticky film on my skin. I enjoyed the subtle rosey scent, and when I looked at the ingredients, I was positively surprised to find lots of botanical extracts as well as pro-vitamin B5 and sodium hyaluronate.
This is a very nice mask, and based on my experience, I would recommend it! Masking Beautifying Rose & Green Tea Sheet Face Mask is available as a 20ml single-use sheet mask for £1 (Tesco).

Hi there! Today’s post is about the majority of the products I bought before Christmas (or so). I’m saying majority because I didn’t take photos of everything I bought, and there’s some stuff I know I’ll only remember after posting. Without further ado, here’s the stuff:
Boots No7 Skincare Stars The Star Of The Show – this incredible set has products worth £149, but it was £39 for a few days in the run-up to Christmas.
Marks & Spencer Discover Spiced Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Soft Iris – these fragrances are vegan and certified cruelty-free. The set was £6.65 (30% off offer), but even the full price of £9.50 is a total steal for 3 x 30ml. I already reviewed this set.
M&S Discover Water Jasmine, Fresh Lychee, White Coconut – I’ll review this set soon. Same price and amount as above, and all these fragrances are vegan and certified cruelty-free as well!
Radox Perky Peach, Radox Mint To Be – I’m looking forward to trying these shower gels, although I made a mistake with the minty one. I ignored the name and the mint leaves, and I somehow assumed it would be a lime scent… 🤦♀️ These 400ml shower gels were about £1.30 each.
Imperial Leather Wild Thing, Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay – these 2 cute 250ml shower gels were 99p each. I’ve been using them for almost 2 weeks now, and the review will be up tomorrow!
Herbal Essences Bio Renew Micellar Water & Blue Ginger Shampoo & Blue Ginger Conditioner – these are in use too, and the review will be up on Friday! Oh, and these were £3 each!
I also bought plenty of face masks – but they were too many to list. I’ve already tried and reviewed some of them!
Boots Live + Be Awakening Glow Shower Cream, Boots Live+Be Beautiful Connection Bath Soak – I bought these and lots of other Live+Be products as it looks like the entire range is going to be discontinued. Really sad (and typical because I just discovered these last month). I already reviewed the 2 products above.
Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender – I bought this when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion. They’re usually £4.99. I already reviewed this body cream.
Superdrug Vitamin Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen (also £4.99) was the other product I got with the Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price deal.
I bought 2 Superdrug Vitamin E Moisturising Shower Creams. I’ve never seen these before but it was time Superdrug finally made a shower gel with their iconic Vitamin E fragrance. These were £1.20 each (Better Than Half Price offer). Garnier Body’s Intensive 7 Days Ultra-Replenishing Lotion With Shea Butter was a repurchase. This is a big 400ml, and it was £2.49 (B&M Bargains).
Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Hibiscus Extract was on a Save 1/3 offer. It’s usually £4.49 for a 465ml, but I paid £2.99.
And lastly, Boots Ingredients Glycolic Acid Toner, Boots Ingredients Niacinamide Serum and Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel. The first 2 products were £5, the cleanser was £4 but was actually free (3 for 2 offer).
The No 7 set was a bit more expensive (it wasn’t if you consider the actual value of the products in it), everything else was rather cheap! Have you tried any of these items? Would you like to try any of them? What have you bought recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 😘
