The Crème Shop Last Christmas “Naughty” Energy Boost Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Last Christmas “Naughty” Energy Boost Face Mask which is aimed at people who skimp on sleep, forget about SPF and rub and scrub their skin. This face mask promises to invigorate skin and to improve skin resilience and suppleness.

This mask works like almost any other sheet mask – place it on your cleansed face, leave it alone for 15 minutes (I leave sheet masks on until they’re dry), then massage the remaining essence into your skin. I’ve given this mask a try, and here’s what I think.

I think this mask is fantastic. It feels hydrating without being greasy, it feels refreshing without any dodgy cooling effect, and it appeared to plump up my skin. So yeah, it delivered on its promise! A look at the back of the mask reveals that it’s bursting with botanical extracts – which is impressive!

I like this mask a lot, and I’m glad I dug it up from the clearance section! The Crème Shop’s Last Christmas “Naughty” Energy Boost Face Mask is available as part of a set containing 3 Naughty and 3 Nice face masks – that’s 6 masks in total. I paid £5.99 for the set (TK Maxx Clearance).

The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer And Clear “Naughty” Clarifying Face Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing The Crème Shop‘s Holiday Cheer And Clear “Naughty” Clarifying Face Mask. This mask is like any other normal sheet mask – place it on your face, leave it on for around 20 minutes (I always leave sheet masks on until they’re dry), and massage the excess serum into your skin (I always pop a compressed sheet mask into the sachet with the leftover serum, this way I get to enjoy another sheet mask the next day).

This face mask is aimed at women who… sleep with their makeup on, who pick at pimples or who eat too much chocolate (that’s what it says on the box). Whilst I don’t go to sleep with makeup on, and whilst I think that there’s no such thing as too much chocolate, I am guilty of picking at my skin. So I tried this mask, and here’s what I think.

Before I used the mask, I wasn’t sure whether it would do much because it appeared to be a little random. However, I am glad I used the mask because it’s actually very nice! It calmed and soothed my skin – which I was in desperate need of that day. It reduced the redness around my chin, it seemed to (temporarily) shrink my pores, and it was very hydrating. So yeah, this is a great mask that helps with a number of skin issues. I am glad I have two more of these masks!

The Crème Shop‘s Holiday Cheer And Clear “Naughty” Clarifying Face Mask is available as part of a set containing 3 Naughty and 3 Nice face masks – that’s 6 masks in total. I paid £5.99 for the set (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Last Christmas “Nice” Forever Young Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Last Christmas “Nice” Forever Young Face Mask. This face mask promises to smooth out wrinkles, to restore skin vitality, and to repair worn skin. It contains sodium hyaluronate (which is listed as the 4th ingredient) and a number of botanical extracts.

I think this is a great mask! It feels deeply hydrating, and I am happy to confirm that it reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I guess that’s because of the hydration boost! Whatever it is, I am impressed! Another great thing is that the mask smells like baby powder which is just lovely! 😊

I would definitely recommend this face mask! The Crème Shop‘s Last Christmas “Nice” Forever Young Face Mask is available as part of The Crème Shop’s Last Christmas face mask set (3 Naughty and 3 Nice face masks). I paid £5.99 for the set (TK Maxx, clearance).

The Crème Shop Depuffing & Anti-Inflammatory Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about my current night cream – The Crème Shop‘s Depuffing & Anti-Inflammatory Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask which promises skin that feels silky and that looks well-rested and bright.

This product is easy to use – use it like a normal night cream. By the way, I’ve checked the ingredients, and I found that this poduct contains macadamia oil – great stuff! And now that I’ve been using this product for a few weeks now, here’s what I think!

I think this is a great product! I love the gel formula. It feels refreshing, it absorbs quickly, and whilst it feels hydrating, it doesn’t feel sticky at all. In addition, I’m happy to confirm that my skin feels soft and looks well-rested and bright in the morning. Since I have very dry skin, I generally prefer richer night creams. However, this overnight gel mask does everything I need it to do, and I am very happy with it!

I’ve previously used one of The Crème Shop’s Overnight Gel Masks – the Charcoal version, and I was happy with that one too. This rose version is more hydrating, and I would consider it most suitable for people with normal to dry skin, whilst the charcoal version is best suited for people with normal to oily skin. Either way, I would recommend both products because they do what they promise to do, and they’re awesome fun! 🙂

The Crème Shop’s Depuffing & Anti-Inflammatory Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask is available as 50ml. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Santa’s List Charcoal Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I picked up at TK Maxx (pack of 5 masks, clearance) – The Crème Shop Santa’s List Charcoal Sheet Mask. This mask promises to detoxify skin by getting rid of impurities, and to refresh and renew skin.

This mask is supposed to be left on for 15-20 minutes, and the leftover essence in the sachet is supposed to be used on the neck and on parts of the face not covered by the mask. I always leave these masks on until they’re dry. And I always pop a compressed sheet mask into the sachet with the leftover essence, so I have another sheet mask for the next day. 🙂

How’s the mask? I think this mask is pretty awesome! It feels refreshing and I’ve noticed that it calms my skin. I’ve been using it on days when my skin was difficult, and it always had a calming and soothing effect. I also love that this mask feels hydrating. Great stuff! Whilst this mask is one of the stickier ones, I don’t mind this at all because it takes great care of my skin.

This mask smells like candy canes. It’s nice, but to be honest, if I had known that it contained peppermint oil, I wouldn’t have bought the pack. I know I should have checked the ingredients first! However, I’m happy to confirm that the mask did great things only for me. And the peppermint oil is probably the reason the mask feels so refreshing.

The Crème Shop Santa’s List Charcoal Sheet Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks. I paid £4.99.

Thierry Mugler Aura gift set£32.66. Debenhams.

Max & More No. 4 Nude Eyeshadow Palette£2. I haven’t heard of Max & More, so I looked up the brand… apparently it’s a cruelty-free brand from the Netherlands. Fantastic stuff!

Primark Holler And Glow Nails Before Tails Nail Polish Set£4.
Patisserie De Bain Raspberry Roulade Hand Cream, Orange Crush Hand Cream£1 each.

The Crème Shop Pumpkin Spice Fusion Sheet Mask (pack of 5) £4.99.
These masks are from TK Maxx!

Another TK Maxx find!

Sanctuary Spa gift set£7. Boots.

Another Sanctuary Spa gift set. This one contains a shower gel, luxury bath float, body butter and hand cream. These are all full sizes. I’m sorry I haven’t opened this one yet. 1 at a time! This set was £12.50. Boots.

Sanctuary Spa gift set number 3 – £10. Yes, Boots again.

Soap & Glory Clean On Me and Scrub Of Your Life. These came in a gift set with…

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter, Hand Food and 2 bath bombs. I am not going to use the bath bombs. They’re glittery. I’ll give them to the first person who wants them. The gift set with all 6 products was £10. Boots.

Creightons Hand CreamsArgan Oil, Cocoa Butter, Manuka Honey. I am not sure how much these were, but I’ll check the next time I swing by Home Bargains.

2 more Patisserie De Bain Hand Creams – these were £1 each. Poundland.

Boots No.7 gift set – this set contains all sorts of goodies. It was £39 (better than half price offer before the sale even started). Boots.

And finally… I bought 2 more George at Asda duvet cover sets. They’re king size, and they were £14 each. I love these designs! However, I need to stop buying duvet cover sets. I bought 6 over the past year, and even though I got rid of all the old (very old, actually) duvet cover sets, I have more than enough now.

*** By the way, please remember not to dispose of unwanted textiles of any kind (clothes, towels, bedding, etc) with your household rubbish. Your local charity shop will gladly accept items in good condition, H&M and other high street stores run textile recycling schemes (H&M accepts clothes and household textiles like towels and bedding), and animal shelters are usually happy to accept towels and duvet covers (but not duvets as they’re difficult to clean and they can’t be recycled). ***
