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).

Maxbrands Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend! This week I’m going to post about face masks only, so this week is going to be FACE MASK WEEK. ☺️ And today’s post is about Maxbrands’ Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask for normal skin.

Maxbrands is a brand from the Netherlands. I’ve never seen their products anywhere in the UK – until I found their face masks (gold masks and charcoal masks) at my local Home Bargains store. Since a pack of 5 masks was 99p only, I picked up 2 packs right away.

This gold mask promises to give skin a deep cleanse and to remove blackheads. I’ve now used 2 of these masks, and I think they’re the most powerful peel-off masks ever. But let’s start from the beginning…

First of all, if you use peel-off masks a lot, you’re probably used to them being runny. However, these gold masks are much thicker, almost paste-like. These masks don’t take long to dry. I think that leaving them on for 15 minutes is more than enough. Now, when you remove the mask, you have to be extra careful – because it removes blackheads AND facial hair.

If I had known how powerful this mask is before I’d used it, I would have shaved my face. I’m serious! Trust me, you have no idea how much peach fuzz you have until those teeny tiny strands of baby hair are pulled out. My face was bright red for about an hour after I removed the mask, but that was from the unexpected and unwanted peach fuzz removal; this was not an allergic reaction.

Having mentioned this, this mask is actually one of my new favourite products. It made my pores squeaky clean, and it completely transformed my husband’s nose after a single use. My husband enjoys an occasional face mask, but his nose has always been a problem (nose strips didn’t help – we tried). Now I don’t want to spoil your dinner, so all I’m going to say is that once my husband peeled the mask off of his nose, he was actually ashamed of how much gunk it caught. It wasn’t pretty, but again, a single use of this mask completely transformed his nose.

Based on my experience, I would recommend this face mask to anyone who’s fighting a losing battle against their blackheads. Just be aware that you might want to consider shaving your face before you use this mask. I will continue to use this mask on a regular basis, and I have already stocked up on this amazing little product!

Maxbrands’ Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks I paid 99p (Home Bargains).

Treacle Moon Marshmallow Hearts

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Treacle Moon Marshmallow Hearts Shower & Bath Gel.

I’m a big fan of Treacle Moon because, so far, I liked or loved almost every single one of their products. So yes, expectations for this shower gel were high!

I’ve now given product a try, and I love it! This shower gel smells of marshmallows and cookie dough. It smells warm, cuddly and sweet. Truly impressive stuff!

I’m also happy to report that this shower gel doesn’t feel drying. It’s almost like a shower cream!

I would recommend this amazing shower gel to anyone who likes to smell good! Treacle Moon Marshmallow Hearts Shower & Bath Gel is available as 500ml. I paid £2 (save 1/3 offer, Tesco).

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid, Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry & Stamping With Biutee 10

Hi there! Today’s post is about the first mani I did using my new Biutee stamping plate set.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

For the images I used my Biutee 10 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

Whilst the mani didn’t look half as cool as I had hoped, I’m looking forward to using this stamping plate again. It won’t be long!

Beautifully Scrumptious Cocoa & Vanilla Body Butter Fusion

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Beautifully Scrumptious Cocoa & Vanilla Body Butter Fusion. Over the past couple of months I tried a few of their body butters. I think the brand did a great job with their Almond and Aloe Vera body butters. So I decided to give this body butter a try too.

I wanted to love this body butter, but I can’t. It moisturises my skin just as well as the other 2 body butters that I’ve previously tried from this brand. However, the fragrance is a complete mess. It doesn’t smell of cocoa, it doesn’t smell of vanilla. It smells like too much of everything, but it also smells like nothing. What they were thinking?

My husband is now using this body butter as a foot butter, and this appears to be the best use for this product! If you’d still like to give it a try, Beautifully Scrumptious Cocoa & Vanilla Body Butter Fusion is available as as 220ml for about £1 at bargain stores.

Fascy Bubble Tina Aqua Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Fascy Bubble Tina Aqua Mask. This face mask contains a number of botanical extracts, and it promises to hydrate skin. The mask itself is a cellulose sheet mask that claims to adhere to the skin perfectly.

This mask works life almost any other sheet mask out there. Place it on your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, massage the remaining essence into your skin, and you’re good to go. 😎

I’ve already used 3 of these masks, and I like them very much. The cellulose mask is great. It fits my face well, it retains its shape, and it stays in place. I hope other brands will switch to cellulose masks!

I’m also very happy with the essence. Whilst the essence is quite sticky, I’m satisfied that it provides plenty of hydration and that it plumps up my skin. So yeah, this mask gives me visible results after every use!

All in all, this is a very enjoyable mask, and I would recommend it to people with dry skin. Fascy Bubble Tina Aqua Masks are available as a pack of 10 masks for £5.99 at TK Maxx.
