Mad Beauty Disney Minnie Mouse Pomegranate Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s short post is about this Mad Beauty Disney Minnie Mouse Pomegranate Face Mask which promises refreshed and supple skin.

You’re supposed to start with a freshly cleansed face. Then put the mask on, leave it on for 10-12 minutes, wash off the excess, and follow with your regular skin care.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it was alright. It had a short-lived hydrating effect, and it smelled OK too. It’s not a mask I’d recommend or buy again though. I’ve now tried 8 Mad Beauty masks – and overall, this brand has left me unimpressed. I might give Mad Beauty another chance in the future – but definitely not too soon!

If you’re interested, Mad Beauty Disney Minnie Mouse Pomegranate Face Mask is available as a single-use 25ml face mask for £1.50 (sale price).

Skin Techniques Pomegranate Infused Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Techniques Pomegranate Infused Sheet Mask. This mask with pomegranate and algae extracts and hyaluronic acid promises to hydrate, brighten and detoxify the skin.

Start by washing your face. Then place the mask on your face and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Massage the remaining essence into your skin, and follow with your regular skin care if you want.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I liked it. The mask was hydrating, and it left my skin looking plump and refreshed. Very nice! I couldn’t really see or feel any detoxifying effect, but I don’t mind. This mask is really nice, and I’d recommend it. I will buy it again, no doubt.

If you’re interested, Skin Techniques Pomegranate Infused Sheet Mask is available as 25ml for £1 (B&M Bargains).

Farm Skin Green Tea Soothing Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Farm Skin Green Tea Soothing Sheet Mask. This mask promises to restore the appearance of tired-looking skin, and to have a soothing effect on irritated skin. This is a regular leave-on sheet mask. Cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then remove the mask and massage the essence into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I liked it! This face mask felt soothing and calming indeed! Background = my skin broke out recently – which I think I can trace back to a new (and not very effective) face wash. So this mask came in very handy as it calmed down my skin, and it even helped with the redness.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask. Farm Skin Green Tea Soothing Sheet Mask is part of Farm Skin’s Superfood 7 Pcs face mask set which I bought for £6.99 (TK Maxx). Also, this face mask is vegan! 😍

Skin Treats Star Glitter Moisturising Peel Off Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Star Glitter Moisturising Peel Off Face Mask.

How does it work? Start by cleansing your face. Then apply a thin layer of the mak to your face – make sure you avoid your lips, eyes and hairline. Once the mask is dry, simply peel it off.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I was pleasantly surprised! I didn’t expect it to be great, so I was blown away when I used it.

This peel off mask sucked the dirt out of my pores, and it even removed my peach fuzz – although this isn’t something I wanted. It just happened because the mask is so insanely powerful.

My husband has also tried this mask on his nose – and it worked brilliantly!

I don’t think this mask is moisturising (but it doesn’t matter anyway since it has to be washed off), but it’s very cleansing (please be careful if you want to try it).

Skin Treats Star Glitter Moisturising Peel Off Face Mask is available as 150ml. I think I paid 99p or £1 (B&M Bargains).

Tonymoly I’m Seaweed Skin Purifying Mask Sheet

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Tonymoly I’m Seaweed Skin Purifying Mask Sheet. This sheet mask promises to make (I’m quoting from the back of the pack) “skin look bright and radiant with freshness of the sea.”

This is a leave-on sheet mask, so start by cleansing your face. Put the mask on and enjoy it for 20-30 minutes, then massage the essence into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s OK. I didn’t find it to be purifying or brightening, but it felt good while it was on, and I found it hydrating.

I don’t think I’ll buy this mask again, but if you’re interested, Tonymoly I’m Seaweed Skin Purifying Mask Sheet is available as a pack of 10 face masks for £9.99 (TK Maxx).

Freeman Revitalizing Pomegranate Peel-Off Gel Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Freeman Revitalizing Pomegranate Peel-Off Gel Mask which promises to purge dirt and excess oils from the skin for a clearer and revitalised complexion.

How does it work? Cleanse your face, then apply the mask and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Once dry, peel it off and wash off the residue. The usual.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s more or less the same as Freeman’s cucumber mask. It took ages for this mask to dry, and I gave up after about 30 minutes. I peeled off what came off, and I removed the remainder of the mask – slimey patches that didn’t dry – with a cotton pad before I washed my face.

I didn’t think that this mask has any real positive effect on my skin. The peel-off effect is too gentle, and the mask barely removes half-loose bits of flaky skin. Also, 15ml is too much for a peel-off mask (and it’s probably the reason why it won’t dry). 10ml would suffice for a single-use.

I won’t be buying this mask again, but if you’re interested, Freeman Revitalizing Pomegranate Peel-Off Gel Mask is available as 15ml for £1.50. I made use of a Save 1/3 offer, so mine was £1.

Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel, Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel and Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel. According the manufacturer, these shower gels are 97% natural, vegan and cruelty-free. 😍

Let’s start with Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel! Wow, what a wonderful surprise! This shower gel is simply amazing. It has a subtle lemony, soapy and bath-salty scent. Lovely! The formula is fantastic too. It feels cleansing but not drying, and it leaves my skin feeling nice and balanced. What’s not to love?

Onto Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel! Whilst this shower gel is nice too, I didn’t like that it hardly smells of anything. If you prefer shower gels which are almost scent-free, this is one to try as it’s cleansing but also gentle on the skin.

Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel and Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel are available as 400ml for £2.99. I paid £1.99 each (Save 1/3 offer at Boots).

TK Maxx A’kin Haul – MAJOR Bargains!

Hi there! The other day I was browsing through TK Maxx’s online offerings, and I found a bunch of A’kin products for unbelievable prices. For a moment I thought I might have confused this brand with some cheap copycat brand, but I realised quickly that A’kin is the Australian skin care brand I thought it was. Without hesitating, I bought these amazing goodies – the bargain bin prices will make your eyes pop!

A’kin Invigorating Facial Scrub£2 (I googled and found this to be around £10)
A’kin Hydrating Certified Organic Rosehip Oil (x2) – £3 each (this is usually £20)

A’kin Sensitive Calming Day & Night Cream£3 (usually between £16 and £24)
A’kin Age Defy Line Smoothing Day Cream£3 (usually between £16 and £24)
A’kin Rosehip Oil Moisture Rich Facial Moisturiser£3 (usually £20)

A’kin Oil Control Intensive Sebum Controller£3 (usually between £10 and £16)
A’kin Brightening Vitamin C & Niacinamide Correcting Eye Gel£3 (usually £24)
A’kin Age Defy Firming Collagen Booster Facial Oil£6.99 (found this for about £20)

Here’s a screenshot of a part of the oder confirmation. When I received the email, I still double-checked the prices. And I triple-checked the order slip when these goodies arrived! 😝🤯

But yes, I paid just under £30 for all these goodies which would have been about £167 (I used the prices that I found online for comparison) if I had bought them elsewhere. I very much look forward to using these products soon!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Nourishing Pro-Vitamin B5 Body Lotion For Dry Skin

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Nourishing Pro-Vitamin B5 Body Lotion For Dry Skin.

In addition to pro-vitamin B5, this body lotion also contains vitamin E which is known to be beneficial for the skin.

I’ve been using this body lotion for a few days now, and I do like it!

This body lotion smells lovely. It has a fresh and fruity scent. I can’t put my finger on it, but it reminds me of pomegranate and spring flowers. Nice!

I’m also happy with the formula. The body lotion sinks right into my skin without leaving a sticky film behind. I’m happy that I don’t have to wait (=waste time) between moisturising and getting dressed.

This is a nice body lotion, and I would recommend it!

Superdrug Nourishing Pro-Vitamin B5 Body Lotion For Dry Skin is available as 375ml for £1.49.

Also, this body lotion is vegan and certified cruelty-free – it carries the Leaping Bunny logo! 😍
