100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Pink Grapefruit. Overnight Jelly Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Pink Grapefruit Overnight Jelly Mask. This is not really a mask; this is a moisturiser which is aimed at people with dull or combination skin. It promises to make skin appear smoother and revitalised. Use it as you would use your night cream.

The pack provided enough product for about 12 applications – and I used a generous amount of product each time. I enjoyed the fresh grapefruit fragrance, and I can confirm that the product made my skin look smooth in the morning. However, at the same time my skin felt a little dry over time. Nothing major, just a bit dryer than usual.

Based on my experience, I think this jelly mask would be more suitable to people with normal to oily skin. If you have dry skin, it might be better to alternate it with your regular night cream. Yes, I should have thought of this sooner! 🤦‍♀️

Primark’s PS… Pink Grapefruit Overnight Jelly Mask is available as 25ml for £1.50 at Primark. This product is vegan and certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Glow Priming Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Glow Priming Sheet Mask. This mask is bio-degradable, and it contains pearl extract, witch hazel as well as vitamin E, and it promises to reveal skin’s natural glow.

This mask is a normal leave-on sheet mask. Just cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, lay back and enjoy the mask for 15-20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. The essence was hydrating and mildly refreshing, and I noticed that my skin looked all nice and plumped up. This was great!

Having said this, the mask has a strong lotus root fragrance. Lotus and waterlily scents are some of my least favourite scents in cosmetic products, so I won’t buy this mask again. However, if you don’t mind this kind of scent, I’d recommend this face mask!

Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Glow Priming Sheet Mask is available as a 23g single-use face mask for 80p. This mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

Primark PS… Charcoal. Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Charcoal Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask. This mask promises to draw out excess oil and impurities for cleansed pores and purified skin.

The essence contains orange and lemon fruit extracts, another few botanical extracts and charcoal powder. This mask is supposed to be left on for 10-15 minutes, and you should wash your face after use.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really powerful! I could feel the cleansing effect within seconds of placing the mask on my face. It was lovely! I was also happy when I saw that the mask left my pores looking smaller, and that it made my skin look a bit brighter. I think this is a great bubble sheet mask, and I will buy it again, no doubt!

Primark‘s PS… Charcoal Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask is available as a 20g single-use face mask for £1.50.

Primark PS… Soothing Cream Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week, and it’s also the last post this Face Mask Week. And it’s about this Primark PS… Soothing Cream Mask.

This mask promises to soothe and to hydrate skin. You’re supposed to cleanse your skin, then apply the mask to your face and neck. After about 15 minutes, rinse it off! And that’s already it!

A look at the ingredients shows that the mask is bursting with botanical extracts. This is great! I’ve given the mask a try, and I think it’s really nice. I would agree that the mask felt soothing and hydrating! One more thing I’d like to mention is that the mask has an interesting texture – it’s a jelly with pulp. It’s unusual, but it’s the perfect mask for a home spa day!

Primark PS… Soothing Cream Mask is available as 15ml for 80p at Primark. I’ll buy more of these!

Primark PS… Retinol Fusing Facial Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I bought and tried just recently – it’s this Primark PS… Retinol Fusing Sheet Mask.

With this product, the actual sheet mask and the essence are separated. So you have to turn the sachet upside down and give it a good squeeze for the essence to reach the sheet mask. Once the mask has absorbed the essence, you can use it (just leave it on for 15-20 minutes, don’t rinse).

This mask promises to make skin appear smoother. Whilst the mask felt nice and relaxing, I don’t think it did anything to my face. When I removed the mask, I found that it left my face feeling a little sticky. It wasn’t too bad. However, I would have preferred not to have a sticky face.

All in all, I liked the novelty-effect of a fusing mask, but since it didn’t give me any results, I won’t buy it again.

If you’re interested, Primark PS… Retinol Fusing Sheet Mask is available as 20g for £2. I paid 50p (clearance).

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Snow White & Stamping With Maniology BM-XL218

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! 😊

Today’s post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Snow White (2 coats). This is a great polish. Primark did a fantastic job with this one!

For the images I used my Maniology BM-XL218 stamping plate. The purple polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir.

I actually wanted to stamp with one of my near-empty purple polishes (Miss Sporty, L’Oréal), but unfortunately, I couldn’t find them. Typical, I know! 🤣

Haul! New Stuff I bought since Boxing Day! 👀

Hi there! Today’s post is about most of the stuff I bought since Boxing Day. There is one gift set I have no photo of because it’s already been packed up for the house move. The gift set is a Thierry Mugler Aura fragrance set (plus mini shower gel and mini body lotion). OK, now let’s look at the goodies I was able to take photos of!

I bought plenty of face masks. Primark had a number of heavily discounted face masks (some £1, some 50p), and I bought over 20. I also picked up 3 Yes To face masks for a total of £2 (reduced to clear for £1 each and a 3 for 2 offer on top at Boots). I also found Simple face masks at Poundland, Boots and B&M Bargains. They normally retail for £2.99 each, but most of them were £1, some £1.49.

A set of mini nail files from Superdrug. The set was 10p (clearance). Bioré Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar for £1.99 at Home Bargains!

A set of 4 Charcoal Self-Heating One Minute Masks from Bioré£1.99 at Home Bargains. And a set of 3 fruity face masks from Superdrug for £1.49 (I bought 2 sets).

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish – 3 tubes for 60p each (clearance). A set of nail files – these were 50p at Poundland (clearance bin). I use glass nail files at home, but I always carry one of those cheapo files in my handbag.

Sanctuary Spa face mask set£2.99 at Superdrug. I bought 2 sets! I have no idea if these are any good, but I thought I might give one of these sets to a friend.

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth shower gels. I found these at Poundland – 400ml each for £1 each. I’m looking forward to using these cute shower gels! 😍

And this is most of what I bought since Boxing Day. I did buy 5 nail polishes (all Revlon, £1 each at Poundland), but these have been packed up for the move as well.

Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Hydrate Priming Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Prep & Perfect Hydrate Priming Sheet Mask. This mask contains lotus root extract, cogon grass root extract as well as sodium hyaluronate, and it promises to help revitalise and to hydrate the skin.

This sheet mask is easy to use – cleanse your face, enjoy the mask for 20 minutes, then treat your skin to a massage using the leftover essence from the sachet.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! It feels refreshing and hydrating, it seems to have a very gentle and very pleasant cooling effect, and it’s not sticky! I think this is a great product! And whilst the actual sheet mask is not great (it goes out of shape the moment you touch it), I’m happy to give it a pass because it’s bio-degradeable. I hope other mask manufacturers follow suit. All sheet masks should be bio-degradeable!

Primark‘s PS… Prep & Perfect Hydrate Priming Sheet Mask is available as a 25ml single use face mask. It’s 80p at Primark. This mask is also 100% cruelty-free (like all of Primark’s beauty products). It carries the Leaping Bunny logo (=certified cruelty-free).
