100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Lemon Macaron

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Montagne Jeunesse Lemon Macaron face mask which I picked up at my local Primark store.

I thought this mask was a clay mask – but it’s actually a rinse-off moisture mask.

How does it work? The instructions state that you should do a patch test. If your skin tolerates the product without any issues, you should cleanse your face, apply the mask all over your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse it off.

The result it promises is “intense moisturisation for super soft skin”.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s OK. It’s not really moisturising, but it’s one of those face masks which are nice enough when you take a long bath.

I won’t buy this mask again, but in case you’re interested… Montagne Jeunesse Lemon Macaron is available as 25ml for 90p at Primark.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Pink Cactus Flower Peel Off

Hi there! And welcome to Face Mask Week! Yes, I’ll be posting about face masks only this week.

And I’m starting off with this Montagne Jeunesse Pink Cactus Flower Peel Off face mask. 🌵🌸

This mask promises to cleanse and to detoxify skin. It’s a regular peel off mask. Apply it to your face, leave it alone so it can dry (about 15 minutes), then peel it off and wash your face to make sure you remove any residue.

I think this is one of Montagne Jeunesse’s better peel off masks. I found it to be really effective at removing dirt and oil. And the floral fragrance is simply wonderful. It’s just wow! If this was an actual fragrance, I’d wear it!

Based on my experience, I’d be more than happy to recommend this face mask!

Montagne Jeunesse Pink Cactus Flower Peel Off face mask is available as 10ml for 90p (Primark). This face mask carries the Leaping Bunny logo – it’s certified cruelty-free!

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).

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Matte Priming Peel Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Prep & Perfect Matte Firming Peel Off Mask which contains charcoal powder as well as a number of botanical extracts (hollyhock, bergamot, etc). This face mask promises to draw out impurities, to remove oil and to refine pores.

You’re supposed to apply the mask to cleansed skin, leave it on for about 15 minutes (or until it’s dry), then peel it off, wash your face… and you’re good to go! Read on if you’d like to know if this mask is any good…

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s perfectly average. I’m sure the mask removes dead skin cells, but I doubt it does much else. It’s simply not powerful enough. I haven’t seen or felt any difference, and I won’t repurchase this mask.

Primark‘s PS… Prep & Perfect Matte Firming Peel Off Mask is available as a 10ml single-use face mask for 80p. This face mask – just like any other Primark beauty product – is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s Holler And Glow Gem Fest Moisturising Printed Sheet Mask. This face mask contains coconut fruit extract, sodium hyaluronate, panthenol, witch hazel and other botanical extracts. It promises to hydrate skin deeply.
The instructions show that you’re supposed to cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. And that’s pretty much it.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. I found the mask to be deeply hydrating – without being sticky. So yeah, I’m happy to report that the mask did what it promised to do! Based on my experience, I’d recommend it!

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Plumping Sheet Mask

Hi there! I’ve got a skin care review for you today, and it’s about Primark’s PS… Plumping Sheet Mask with vitamin E, panthenol, papaya fruit extract, anise extract and witch hazel. The mask promises to nourish and to plump up skin. And the actual sheet mask itself is bio-degradable – awesome stuff!

This mask is easy to use – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin and follow with your regular skin care.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! It feels deeply hydrating, and I would agree that it has a plumping effect. When I took the mask off, my face was glowing! I will buy this mask again, and I would recommend it.

Primark’s PS… Plumping Sheet Mask with vitamin E is cruelty-free. It’s Leaping Bunny certified – like all of Primark’s own brand beauty products. And it’s 80p!

Primark PS… Brightening Peel-Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS Brightening Peel-Off Mask with pomegranate fruit extract and vitamin E. The instructions state that you should… apply the mask to your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, peel it off, then wash your face – and you’re good to go.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I don’t think that it has any brightening effect at all. I found the mask a bit more difficult to peel off, so I’m satisfied that it does remove dead skin cells. Still, I won’t repurchase this mask because there are much more effective peel-off masks out there, like Beauty Formulas’ amazing cleanser and mask duo or Maxbrands’ sensational gold mask.

Anyhoo… if you’re interested, Primark‘s PS Brightening Peel-Off Mask is available as 10ml for 80p.

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White & Stamping With Nicole Diary ND 076

Hi there! I’ve got a short Nail Of The Day post for you today. Since we’re just days away from Halloween, I thought I’d share this mani now – just in case you’re looking for Halloween nail art inspiration.

Alrighty! For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White (2 coats). I have a number of white Primark polishes and most of them are one-coaters, and they’re much better than the considerably more pricey stuff out there!

For the images I used my Nicole Diary ND 076 stamping plate. The red polish I stamped with is Manhattan Quick Dry 46K.

I liked how this mani turned out. No, I loved it! This stamping plate is… 😍 🔥 💖

Will you do a spooky Halloween mani? If you’d like to share your ideas with me, please do so via the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

Primark PS… Moisturising Ginkgo Rinse Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Moisturising Ginkgo Rinse Off Mask. This mask contains ginkgo and oat kernel meal, and it promises to hydrate skin. The mask is easy to use – just cleanse your face, apply the mask, leave it on for 10 minutes, then rinse it off and pat your face dry.

This mask was quite enjoyable. I loved the fresh, green fragrance, and I found it awesome that small oat kernel bits could be seen and felt in the mask. I was also happy with how the mask felt on my face, and based on my experience, I would agree that it was mildly hydrating. Whilst I think that this kind of mask isn’t the most effective method to hydrate skin, I liked the overall spa feel of the mask.

Primark‘s PS… Moisturising Ginkgo Rinse Off Mask is available as 15ml for 80p. I got 3 uses out of this sachet (and yes, I did seal the sachet after each use and I stored it in the fridge).

Primark PS… Smoothing Dead Sea Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Smoothing Dead Sea Mask which I picked up for 80p. This face mask contains clay, minerals, shea butter, and mango and lemon fruit extracts, and it promises to condition the skin.

This mask is easy to use – apply it to your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off, and you’re good to go. Read on if you’d like to know if this mask is any good.

I think this mask is one of the best masks I’ve tried all year. It made my skin feel and look considerably cleaner, clearer, brighter, and smoother. I really loved the results, and I kept looking at my face in the mirror for several minutes. This mask is a true all-in-one face mask and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it!

Primark‘s PS… Smoothing Dead Sea Mask is available for 80p. I hope to find a few more of these masks because I’d love to stock up!
