Skin Techniques Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this detoxifying and cleansing Skin Techniques Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask. On the back it says that the bubble foam formula with charcoal removes impurities and firms pores whilst the mud hydrates the skin.

Before you use this mask, you’re supposed to cleanse your skin. Once done, simply put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes, then take it off and rinse your face.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I didn’t care for it. The bubble effect is minimal, and the mask had no visible effect on my skin. My skin also didn’t feel better or worse, so based on my experience I’d say that the mask did nothing.

I won’t buy this mask again, but if you’re interested, Skin Techniques Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask is available as a 25ml single-use sheet mask for £1 (B&M Bargains).

Skin Techniques Volcanic Mud Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! This week’s going to be Face Mask Week, so until Sunday I’ll be reviewing face masks only. Let’s start with this Skin Techniques Volcanic Mud Bubble Sheet Mask which I found at my local B&M Bargains store.

This face mask claims that the volcanic ash cleanses and exfoliates the skin and tightens large pores, whilst the mud hydrates and revitalises the skin. You’re supposed to leave the mask on for 15 minutes, then wash your face with warm water.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it does nothing at all. The bubble effect is almost non-existent, and it looks like my pores got bigger. I mean, how is this even possible? Based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend this mask.

However, if you’re interested, Skin Techniques Volcanic Mud Bubble Sheet Mask is available as a single-use 25ml mask for £1 (B&M Bargains).

Boots Skincare Treats The Discovery Collection – this was £10 on Boxing Day. I bought 3 of these. The 2 moisturisers are worth £25 alone! The set would have been great value for full price = £20, but it was the most amazing bargain for half price on Boxing Day!

I bought more face masks – but what else is new? Some half price Disney masks, some £1 masks from B&M Bargains.
