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.

Hi there! Since I’ve been shopping a lot lately, I thought I’d let you know what I got my hands on. It’s mainly stuff from the bargain stores and discounted gift sets from the post-Christmas sale. OK, here’s everything I picked up!

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!

Max & More No. 1 Forest Eyeshadow Palette£2. I found these palettes at Poundland.

Primark Holler And Glow Nails Before Tails Nail Polish Set£4.
Patisserie De Bain Raspberry Roulade Hand Cream, Orange Crush Hand Cream£1 each.
Patisserie De Bain Sweet As Cherry Pie Body Mist£1.
The Patisserie De Bain products are Poundland finds!

These body butters are from Poundstretcher!

YSL Cinéma Eau de Parfum£31.50 (half price offer, Debenhams).
Malki Dead Sea Natural Sulphur Soap x2, £3.75 each and a 3 for 2 offer, so I am pretty annoyed that Boots forgot the 3rd item – but I have dropped them an email, and I hope they send me the missing Dead Sea soap asap.

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

TK Maxx, again.

The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer & Clear Sheet Masks (pack of 6, 3 Naughty and 3 Nice masks) – £5.99.
Yup, they’re from TK Maxx as well.

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). ***

The Crème Shop Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask With Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask with Charcoal. The product promises to detox troubled or sensitive skin so that you can wake up with renewed and purified skin – even after a short night.

How does it work? On the back of the box it says… massage an even layer into your skin – right before bedtime. Focus on dry areas, and leave the product to do its magic overnight. And wake up to hydrated and brighter skin.

I really like the idea of an overnight gel mask. However, it’s just a fancy name for a night cream. 😉 Having said that, I love the gel formula! It’s awesome fun! I’m also satisfied that this product moisturises my skin without greasing it up, and that it helps maintain my skin’s brightness. Another thing I need to mention is the soapy fragrance – it’s clean and pleasant. Nice!

All in all, I think this is a nice and fun product, and I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys a good skin care product at a reasonable price. The Crème Shop‘s Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask with Charcoal is available as 50ml for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Charcoal Face Mask

HI there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Charcoal Face Mask. This face mask with activated charcoal promises to tighten pores and to combat acne by drawing toxins out of the skin. The product also claims to promote a balanced and flawless complexion.

You’re supposed to leave the mask on for 20 – 30 minutes, or until the mask is dry (which is what I do). Don’t wash it off! Just proceed with your normal skin care routine. 🙂

I’ve already used 2 of these masks, and I think they’re brilliant. They make my pores appear smaller and they really have a skin-balancing effect. I’ve also noticed that these masks soothe my skin, so I love to use them when my skin is moody. These masks really work, and I would recommend them to everyone!

The Crème Shop‘s Charcoal Face Masks are available as packs of 5 for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Resveratrol Face Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing The Crème Shop‘s Resveratrol Face Mask. Resveratrol is a natural antioxidant that can be found in dark chocolate and red wine. It promises to reduce inflammation, to reverse skin damange and to make skin appear smoother.

You’re supposed to leave the mask on for 20 – 30 minutes, or until the mask is dry (which is what I do). Don’t wash it off! Just proceed with your normal skin care routine. 🙂

So how’s the mask? I think it’s great! The serum is really powerful. It made my lines disappear for just over a day. It was impressive! I also loved the feel and the fragrance of the serum. My skin felt pampered, and the fragrance is what I imagine gummiberry juice to smell (and maybe taste) like. 😊

I’d recommend The Crème Shop‘s Resveratrol Face Mask in an instant. If you’d like to try this mask, TK Maxx sells packs of 5 sheet masks for £4.99 which is great value!
