Beauty Formulas Detoxifying Bubble Mask With Activated Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Beauty Formulas Detoxifying Bubble Mask With Activated Charcoal which I tried just recently. This is a bubble sheet mask that starts to foam as soon as you open the sachet. So its best to use it pretty much immediately after opening.

This mask promises to cleanse pores deeply and to leave skin feeling refreshed and revitalised. A look at the ingredients on the back of the sachet reveals that this mask is loaded with good stuff like charcoal powder, witch hazel, lemon and pomegranate extracts, and other quality ingredients.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good. I could feel that my skin was given a deep cleanse as the bubbles started to form. When I washed my face after I’d removed the mask, it felt perfectly clean, smooth and refreshed. I think my skin looked a bit brighter as well. In addition, this mask was awesome fun to use!

I think this is the best bubble sheet mask I’ve tried so far. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it, and I will stock up! Beauty Formulas Detoxifying Bubble Mask With Activated Charcoal is available as a single-use mask. I paid £1 (B&M Bargains).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Deep Action Deep Cleansing Charcoal Peel-Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Deep Action Deep Cleansing Charcoal Peel-Off Mask.

This face mask with activated charcoal, birch leaf and witch hazel promises to absorb excess oil and to cleanse pores deeply for a fresh and clear complexion.

I’ve tried this mask, and I think it works. It makes my skin feel clean and clear, and I agree that it removes excess oils – this is very noticeable around the nose!

Based on my experience, I would recommend this mask to anyone who’s looking for an inexpensive but effective (charcoal) peel-off mask that helps with oily skin or skin impurities. 👍

Superdrug‘s Deep Action Deep Cleansing Charcoal Peel-Off Mask is available as 10ml for 99p. Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion, so I bought 2 masks.

Boo Bamboo Bamboo Fiber Charcoal Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Bamboo Fiber Charcoal Face Mask by Boo Bamboo. I don’t love coconut-scented products, but on the front it said “with rose water scent”, so I picked it up. 🙂

This mask contains a number of quality ingredients such as rose flower water (which is the 3rd ingredient listed on the back of the pack), sodium hyaluronate (the 5th ingredient), aloe leaf juice, coconut fruit extract, as well as bamboo leaf and stem extracts. It promises to soften, detoxify and hydrate the skin.

How do you use it? This sheet mask is pretty much like almost any other sheet mask. Leave it on for 10-20 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into the skin. I always leave those masks on until they’re dry (this takes about an hour, but I keep myself busy writing blog posts or reading other people’s blog posts).

Finally, the actual review: I think this mask is really nice. Whilst it doesn’t smell like rose water at all, and whilst the essence is a bit sticky, the mask is deeply hydrating, and it makes my skin feel super soft. I think this mask is a real treat for dry skin!

This Bamboo Fiber Charcoal Face Mask by Boo Bamboo is available as a pack of 3. I paid £4 (TK Maxx).

Bling Pop Soothing Face Mask With Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is about Bling Pop‘s Soothing Face Mask With Charcoal. This face mask promises to moisturise and to soothe skin. This mask works like any other regular sheet mask – place it on your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the excess into your skin. I always leave these masks on until they’re dry. I just can’t bin a sheet mask that’s still dripping with serum. I hate being wasteful.

How’s the mask? I think it’s pretty awesome! It feels deeply hydrating and it has a soothing effect. I’ve used a few of these masks already, and they helped turn angry skin into calm and happy skin in no time. I’ve also noticed that my skin tone looks brighter and more even every time I use one of these masks. In summary, if you see these masks at your local TK Maxx (or wherever), you really should pick them up!

Bling Pop‘s Soothing Face Mask With Charcoal is available as a pack of 10 sheet masks for £5.99 (TK Maxx). What an incredible bargain!

Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Mask which I picked up at TK Maxx. This face mask promises to hydrate and renew delicate skin and to control oil for a natural glow. In addition to charcoal, this mask contains hyaluronic acid, botanical extracts and oils.

Is this sheet mask any good? I think it’s alright, but that’s about it. I don’t think it helps with oil control at all, but it hydrates my skin nicely for about half a day. If you’re looking for an effective, purifying sheet mask with charcoal, try Boots’ own brand mask or try The Crème Shop’s sheet mask.

Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Masks are available as packs of 5 masks for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Primark Charcoal Purifying Peel Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Charcoal Purifying Peel Off Face Mask which I picked up at my local Primark.

This mask promises to lift off dirt and impurities. It works like any other peel off mask. Apply the liquid to your face, let it dry for about 15-20 minutes, then peel it off.

How’s the mask? I enjoyed using this mask. It was definitely one of the more effective peel off masks that I’ve tried. It made my face look and feel squeaky clean.

This Charcoal Purifying Peel Off Face Mask is available as 10ml for 80p at Primark. I’ll pick up a few more masks for sure!

Boots Ingredients Sheet Masks – Which One Is Best?

Hi there! Today’s post is about ALL the sheet masks Boots offers under its “Ingredients” brand. Since I’ve tried all the masks, here’s what I think. 🙂

Boots Ingredients Super Hyaluronic Sheet Face Mask

Let’s start with my least favourite Ingredients mask! I was expecting Boots’ Super Hyaluronic to provide proper hydration. However, the mask left me disappointed because it didn’t hydrate my skin at all. I wouldn’t say it was dehydrating, but it wasn’t really that far off. I gave this mask a second chance, but I had the same experience. I wouldn’t recommend this mask, and I wouldn’t buy it again.

Boots Ingredients Lotus Flower & Tiger Lily Sheet Face Mask

This is another Ingredients mask that I wouldn’t recommend or buy it again. Whilst this mask didn’t dehydrate my skin, it just didn’t do anything. It didn’t brighten my skin, it didn’t make my skin look more radiant, it didn’t make my skin look or feel different at all. If I hadn’t used this mask, I wouldn’t have missed it.

Boots Ingredients Rooibos Sheet Face Mask

Now we’re moving on to the better Ingredients face masks! I really enjoyed the Rooibos mask because it made my skin look and feel energised and refreshed. This is a great face mask! Well done, Boots!

Boots Ingredients Safflower & Peony Sheet Face Mask

This is another great Ingredients mask. I’d rate it slighter higher than the Rooibos mask because this one delivered on its younger looking skin promise! Thank you, Boots!

Boots Ingredients Charcoal & Willow Bark Sheet Face Mask

And here’s my favourite! This mask has impressive skin cleansing and purifying powers. My skin looked and felt clearer and cleaner, my pores appeared smaller, my skin tone appeared to be more even, and my skin felt calmer overall. This mask is one of the best masks I’ve ever tried, and I would recommend it to everyone with (or without) problem skin.

Have you tried any of the Ingredients masks? Or would you like to try them? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

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).

Hunny Bee Lavender Face Mask Infused With Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is a review of Hunny Bee’s Lavender Infused With Charcoal Face Mask. This sheet mask promises to be a deep cleansing treatment that purifies the skin and helps get rid of blackheads. It also claims to refine pores.

How does it work? The instructions state that the mask should be left on for 10 to 15 minutes after which you’re supposed to massage the excess serum into your skin. I left the mask on for almost an hour (=until it was dry), and I was really happy with the results!

When I removed the mask I could see that my skin looked clear and refreshed, and that my pores were visibly smaller. This amazing effect lasted for 3 days! I also thought that the serum felt deeply hydrating without being greasy (which was amazing too) ! To sum it up, this skin treatment worked, and I really enjoyed it!

I would recomment this sheet mask to anyone who wants clearer skin. Hunny Bee’s Lavender Infused With Charcoal Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 for £4.99 (TK Maxx).
