The Crème Shop Last Christmas Nice Forever Young Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Last Christmas Nice Forever Young Face Mask. This face mask promises to smooth out wrinkles, to restore skin vitality, and to repair worn skin. It contains sodium hyaluronate (which is listed as the 4th ingredient) and a number of botanical extracts.

I think this is a great mask! It feels deeply hydrating, and I am happy to confirm that it reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I guess that’s because of the hydration boost! Whatever it is, I am impressed! Another great thing is that the mask smells like baby powder which is just lovely! 😊

I would definitely recommend this face mask! The Crème Shop‘s Last Christmas Nice Forever Young Face Mask is available as part of The Crème Shop’s Last Christmas face mask set (3 Naughty and 3 Nice face masks). I paid £5.99 for the set (TK Maxx, clearance).

The Crème Shop Depuffing & Anti-Inflammatory Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about my current night cream – The Crème Shop‘s Depuffing & Anti-Inflammatory Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask which promises skin that feels silky and that looks well-rested and bright.

This product is easy to use – use it like a normal night cream. By the way, I’ve checked the ingredients, and I found that this poduct contains macadamia oil – great stuff! And now that I’ve been using this product for a few weeks now, here’s what I think!

I think this is a great product! I love the gel formula. It feels refreshing, it absorbs quickly, and whilst it feels hydrating, it doesn’t feel sticky at all. In addition, I’m happy to confirm that my skin feels soft and looks well-rested and bright in the morning. Since I have very dry skin, I generally prefer richer night creams. However, this overnight gel mask does everything I need it to do, and I am very happy with it!

I’ve previously used one of The Crème Shop’s Overnight Gel Masks – the Charcoal version, and I was happy with that one too. This rose version is more hydrating, and I would consider it most suitable for people with normal to dry skin, whilst the charcoal version is best suited for people with normal to oily skin. Either way, I would recommend both products because they do what they promise to do, and they’re awesome fun! 🙂

The Crème Shop’s Depuffing & Anti-Inflammatory Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask is available as 50ml. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Santa’s List Charcoal Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I picked up at TK Maxx (pack of 5 masks, clearance) – The Crème Shop Santa’s List Charcoal Sheet Mask. This mask promises to detoxify skin by getting rid of impurities, and to refresh and renew skin.

This mask is supposed to be left on for 15-20 minutes, and the leftover essence in the sachet is supposed to be used on the neck and on parts of the face not covered by the mask. I always leave these masks on until they’re dry. And I always pop a compressed sheet mask into the sachet with the leftover essence, so I have another sheet mask for the next day. 🙂

How’s the mask? I think this mask is pretty awesome! It feels refreshing and I’ve noticed that it calms my skin. I’ve been using it on days when my skin was difficult, and it always had a calming and soothing effect. I also love that this mask feels hydrating. Great stuff! Whilst this mask is one of the stickier ones, I don’t mind this at all because it takes great care of my skin.

This mask smells like candy canes. It’s nice, but to be honest, if I had known that it contained peppermint oil, I wouldn’t have bought the pack. I know I should have checked the ingredients first! However, I’m happy to confirm that the mask did great things only for me. And the peppermint oil is probably the reason the mask feels so refreshing.

The Crème Shop Santa’s List Charcoal Sheet Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks. I paid £4.99.

Nivea Nourishing Honey Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Nivea‘s Nourishing Honey Mask for dry skin.

This face mask contains honey extract and almond oil. It promises to nourish and soothe dry and stressed skin, and to make skin feel hydrated and nourished.

Nivea recommends this face mask be used once or twice a week. Just apply it to your face, leave it alone for 10-15 minutes, and simply remove any leftovers with a cosmetic tissue.

Since this mask doesn’t need to be rinsed off, I’ve decided to use it as a night cream (one sachet contained enough product for a full week). In addition, 7.5ml is a huge amount for a single-use leave-on mask, and I think that removing and discarding most of the product after a few minutes is just wasteful.

Is this mask any good? I think this mask is perfect for dry winter skin. Since I’ve used it for 7 consecutive days I am happy to report that it has temporarily transformed my skin from dry to ultra-nourished. The effect lasted for almost another week after the last application. I’m looking forward to using the 2nd sachet as a night cream as well. I’ll save it for the next cold spell!

Nivea‘s Nourishing Honey Mask for combination skin is available as 2x 7.5ml. I paid £1 (Poundland). I would recommend this mask to anyone with dry skin because it really works! If Poundland still stocks these masks, I will buy a few more!

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).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Sukin Anti-Pollution Oil Balancing + Charcoal Facial Masque

Hi there! Today’s post is about Sukin‘s Anti Pollution Oil Balancing + Charcoal Facial Masque. This face mask contains bamboo charcoal, moringa extract, willowherb, aloe vera, rooibos tea, as well as quince, bilberry and pomegranate extracts, and coconut, avocado and rosehip oils.

It promises to absorb toxins for a deep cleanse, to revitalise and refresh skin, and to tighten pores and reduce shine for a balanced complexion.

This mask is eays to use – apply it your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then wash it off. I’ve used this mask for a few times now, and here’s what I think. 🙂

I think Sukin did an amazing job with this mask. I didn’t expect much because I couldn’t “feel” the mask doing its magic. However, when I washed my face, I was seriously impressed! My skin looked and felt super clean without being dry, my skin tone looked more even, and my pores were much smaller. I get this effect every time I use this mask, and I can definitely see myself picking up another tub once this one’s finished.

I would recommend this face mask to everyone who wants clearer skin. Since this mask works well for my very dry and moody skin, I would also recommend this mask to people with similar skin types.

Sukin‘s Anti Pollution Oil Balancing + Charcoal Facial Masque is available as 100ml. I paid £5.99 (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Turmeric Face Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing The Crème Shop‘s Turmeric Face Mask. This sheet mask promises to help correct skin discolouration, to soothe acne, eczema and dry skin, as well as to combat wrinkles and age spots.

Using the mask is easy – just place it on your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the excess serum into your skin. I always leave sheet masks on until they’re dry. And then I pop a compressed sheet mask into the sachet with the excess serum – this way I can enjoy a second sheet mask the next day!

This sheet mask is simply unbelievable. It really helps with discolourations. Using this mask on 2 consecutive days has not only brightened my skin tone, it also completely eradicated the remains of the dark patches that started to form on my face last summer. I’ve also noticed that my skin looks calmer and considerably less moody. In summary, these masks are some of the best I’ve ever used. If you come across them, you should pick them up. You won’t regret it!

The Crème Shop‘s Turmeric Face Mask is available as a set of 5 sheet masks. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).
