Mad Beauty Toy Story Little Green Men Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Mad Beauty Toy Story Little Green Men Face Mask with apple which claims to help promote a radiant and glowing complexion. With this sheet mask, you’re supposed to cleanse your face first, then put the mask on and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Then you’re supposed to give your face a quick rinse to get rid of any mask residue.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I found it to be nothing special. I don’t think it had any effect on my skin, but I’m happy to report that it smelled better than some of the other Mad Beauty masks I tried over the past few months. The mask also didn’t look as grotesque as the other Mad Beauty masks that I used.

However, it still wasn’t a good mask, and I wouldn’t buy it again. I have 1 Mad Beauty mask left to try, and based on the 7 I had so far, I don’t think that I’ll pick up any more masks from this brand any time soon.

If you’re interested, Mad Beauty Toy Story Little Green Men Face Mask is available as a single-use 25ml face mask for £1.50 (sale price).

Mad Beauty Disney Aurora True Love’s Kiss Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Mad Beauty Disney Aurora True Love’s Kiss Face Mask. This face mask contains niacinamide, pro-vitamin B5, lavender, cucumber and peach extracts, etc. It promises to have a relaxing and calming effect on the skin.

How does it work? Cleanse your face, put on the mask, leave it on for 10 minutes, then wash it off. I prefer leave-on sheet masks, but hey ho…

I’ve been through 6 of the 8 Mad Beauty Disney face masks that I bought, and this is my favourite so far. The mask smells pleasantly of lavender (some of the other masks had a strong chemical smell), and it feels refreshing and certainly relaxing. If it was a leave-on mask, I’d even buy it again!

If you’re interested, Mad Beauty Disney Aurora True Love’s Kiss Face Mask is available as a 25ml single-use face mask for £3 (Superdrug). I paid £1.50 (sale).

Mad Beauty Disney Princess Ariel Jewel Of The Sea Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Mad Beauty Princess Ariel Jewel Of The Sea Face Mask. This face mask with cucumber extract and sodium hyaluronate promises refreshing hydration for the skin. Using this mask is easy – cleanse your face first, then put the mask on, leave it on for 20 minutes, then rinse off the residue.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I thought it was just about OK. I would agree that the mask was mildly hydrating, it felt cool whilst on, and I also found that it didn’t smell as bad as the other Mad Beauty masks that I tried before. All in all, I can say that this mask wasn’t a total waste of time, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

If you’re interested, Mad Beauty Princess Ariel Jewel Of The Sea Face Mask is available as a 25ml single-use face mask for £3 (Superdrug). I paid £1.50 (sale).

Mad Beauty Disney Frozen Passion Fruit Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Mad Beauty Disney Frozen Passion Fruit Face Mask which promises to help refresh and rejuvenate the skin. The way this mask should be used is after you’ve cleansed your face, then put on the mask, leave it on for 10-12 minutes, then wash it off.

I tried this mask just yesterday, and I think it’s alright. I agree that the mask felt refreshing, but it was nothing special. The mask itself was a printed mask – and it was the most grotesque mask I’ve ever seen. With lips, eyebrows and even eye make-up in bright colours, it looked Silence-Of-The-Lambs-scary. I could hardly look at myself.

I won’t buy this mask again, but if you’re interested, Mad Beauty Disney Frozen Passion Fruit Face Mask is available as a 25ml single-use face mask for £3 (Superdrug). I paid £1.50 (sale).

Haul! New Stuff I bought since Boxing Day! 👀

Hi there! Today’s post is about most of the stuff I bought since Boxing Day. There is one gift set I have no photo of because it’s already been packed up for the house move. The gift set is a Thierry Mugler Aura fragrance set (plus mini shower gel and mini body lotion). OK, now let’s look at the goodies I was able to take photos of!

I bought plenty of face masks. Primark had a number of heavily discounted face masks (some £1, some 50p), and I bought over 20. I also picked up 3 Yes To face masks for a total of £2 (reduced to clear for £1 each and a 3 for 2 offer on top at Boots). I also found Simple face masks at Poundland, Boots and B&M Bargains. They normally retail for £2.99 each, but most of them were £1, some £1.49.

A set of mini nail files from Superdrug. The set was 10p (clearance). Bioré Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar for £1.99 at Home Bargains!

A set of 4 Charcoal Self-Heating One Minute Masks from Bioré£1.99 at Home Bargains. And a set of 3 fruity face masks from Superdrug for £1.49 (I bought 2 sets).

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish – 3 tubes for 60p each (clearance). A set of nail files – these were 50p at Poundland (clearance bin). I use glass nail files at home, but I always carry one of those cheapo files in my handbag.

Sanctuary Spa face mask set£2.99 at Superdrug. I bought 2 sets! I have no idea if these are any good, but I thought I might give one of these sets to a friend.

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth shower gels. I found these at Poundland – 400ml each for £1 each. I’m looking forward to using these cute shower gels! 😍

And this is most of what I bought since Boxing Day. I did buy 5 nail polishes (all Revlon, £1 each at Poundland), but these have been packed up for the move as well.
