Skin Treats Aloe Vera Restoring Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Aloe Vera Restoring Sheet Mask which I picked up at Savers a few weeks ago. The mask promises to have a soothing, calming and moisturising effect on the skin.

This face mask is easy to use. Cleanse your face, put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes while you relax. Then masssage the essence into the skin.

I tried this mask just yesterday, and I found it nice! It has a very subtle and pleasant aloe vera scent. With respect to what the mask does, I would agree that it calmed and hydrated my skin. I enjoyed how the mask felt while it was on, and I was also happy that it left my skin looking refreshed.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask. If you’re interested, Skin Treats Aloe Vera Restoring Sheet Mask is available as a 20ml single-use sheet mask for £1 (Savers, B&M Bargains).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Sukin Rosehip Hydrating Day Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Sukin Rosehip Hydrating Day Cream which also contains pomegranate, kakadu plum and a bunch of other botanical ingredients. This day cream promises to help relieve dehydrated skin and fight the signs of ageing.

I’ve been using this day cream for a few weeks now and I think it’s not the best product for my skin type. It’s probably better suited to people with oily skin types. I don’t think someone with normal to dry skin would find this day cream hydrating enough. What I like about this day cream is that plays well with the other facial products I use and that it doesn’t irritate my skin. However, this cream is just not enough for my dry skin, and I often end up using face mist and facial oil as a booster.

If you’re interested, Sukin Rosehip Hydrating Day Cream is available as 120ml for £18.95. I got this product as part of a £12.99 gift set which contained Sukin products worth over £40! So far, the cleanser was disappointing, and this night cream is not suitable for my skin type (even though it says it is). Fingers crossed for the facial oil!

Pure Awesomeness – Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner which I found at TK Maxx. This toner with sodium hyaluronate, lemon, lime and plenty more botanical extracts promises to remove sebum and dead skin cells, to soothe the skin and to make pores appear smaller.

I’ve been using this toner for a few weeks now, and I love it! Wow, what a product! Since this toner contains lemon and lime extracts as well as other fruit extracts, it has a brightening effect on the skin. It’s amazing! This toner has insane cleansing powers. It makes my face look and feel clean and clear, but at the same time it doesn’t feel drying at all. This is, without doubt, one of the best toners I’ve ever used!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this awesome toner. If you’re interested, Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner is available as 150ml. I paid £6 at TK Maxx.

Valjean Labs Replenish Hydration Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Valjean Labs Replenish Hydration Gel. This gel moisturiser contains titanium dioxide, collagen, sea fennel and marine algae extracts, as well as sodium hyaluronate. It’s an easy-to-use moisturiser; simply apply it after you’ve cleansed your face.

I’ve been using this gel moisturiser since some time in November. I use it most nights. Why do I use it at night time? Unfortunately, this gel moisturiser and my foundation (Max Factor Pan Stik or Max Factor Face Finity) don’t get along, so I can only use it if I don’t intend to wear make-up.

Having said this, I’m actually very happy with the “workaround” because this gel moisturiser is very hydrating, it lets me wake up to a refreshed looking face even if I only get 4 hours of sleep, I can slather on A LOT and it will still absorb, and the subtle fragrance (which reminds me of baby food) never fails to put a smile on my face.

All in all, I like this gel moisturiser, and I would recommend it. If you’re interested, Valjean Labs Replenish Hydration Gel is available as 100ml. I paid £6 (TK Maxx).

Skin Treats Fennel Brightening Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Fennel Brightening Sheet Mask. In addition to its skin brightening claim, this mask also promises to revitalise, replenish, rejuvenate, calm and soothe the skin.

How does it work? Cleanse your face, put the mask on and leave it alone for 15 minutes while you relax and enjoy the mask. Then take the mask off and massage the essence into the skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and whilst it wasn’t the most original mask, I liked it a lot. The mask had a revitalising effect. My skin looked and felt refreshed, and I would also agree that it had a calming and slightly brightening effect. The subtle spicy scent didn’t really remind me of fennel, but it was pleasant nonetheless.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask. If you’re interested, Skin Treats Fennel Brightening Sheet Mask is available as a 20ml single-use sheet mask for £1 (Savers, B&M Bargains).

Revisiting Old Favourites – 100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic

Hi there! Happy Tuesday! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic.

This glycolic toner is an old beauty favourite, but I neglected using it for a while because I had so many other toners that I wanted to get to. But I’ve started using in again in September, and I’m over the moon with it. But let’s start with what the product promises…

This toner with 5% glycolic acid, kiwi fruit and mulberry extracts promises to exfoliate and to retexturise the skin, to fade pigment irregularities and to reduce discolouration, to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and to brighten and even out the skin tone. Wow, that’s quite a few promises!

But guess what – this toner keeps all of its promises! I’m using this toner once a day, in the morning, after I’ve showered. I love to start the day with a squeaky clean face, and this toner really makes it happen.

What does it do? It’s the ultimate post-cleansing product that catches all the dirt and gunk that your other cleansers and toners don’t catch. This toner keeps improving my skin tone – my skin is more even and brighter, and, my skin feels and looks smoother as well.

I’m in love with this toner’s exfoliating and brightening powers. It’s just incredible that this toner manages to keep my melasma in check. I know where the dark patches are (one of them is the size of a coaster), but you wouldn’t notice them unless I told you to look for them.

I love this toner so much, and I would recommend it! Since this toner has glycolic acid, please make sure to do a patch test before you use it, and use it gently, at least for the first few days until you’re satisfied that your skin tolerates it. Also make sure to use sunscreen!

If you’re interested, Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic is available as 100ml for £6.99 and 300ml for £11.99. Superdrug runs Buy 1 Get 1 Free or Better Than Half Price off promotions almost all the time. The 2 toners I bought were on a Buy 1 Get 1 Free deal.

Also, this toner is 100% vegan and certified cruelty-free. It carries THE Leaping Bunny logo! 😍

Farm Skin Coconut Nourishing Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Farm Skin Coconut Nourishing Sheet Mask. I’m not the biggest fan of coconut-scented products. I wouldn’t have chosen this face mask for myself. But it was part of a set of 7 face masks which I bought a few months ago.

How does the mask work? Cleanse your face, put the mask on, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the essence into the skin. Pretty standard…

I’ve given this face mask a try, and I think it’s quite good. The coconut fragrance wasn’t too strong, but it was a rather dense and sweet coconut scent – I’m not really a fan. The mask felt good whilst it was on, and it was also nourishing. I liked the mask, and I would recommend it (provided you like coconut-scented skin care).

Farm Skin Coconut Nourishing 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!

Montagne Jeunesse Pink Berry Glitz Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Montagne Jeunesse Pink Berry Glitz Peel Off face mask.

This face mask is aimed at all skin types, and it promises to cleanse the skin by lifting off dead skin cells.

Apply this mask after you’ve cleansed your face. Leave it on until it’s dry – this takes 15-20 minutes. Then peel it off and wash your face again.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s rather basic. It didn’t have much of an effect as it came off too easily.

Based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend this face mask.

Montagne Jeunesse Pink Berry Glitz Peel Off face mask is available as a 10ml single-use mask. I paid 90p (Primark).

On another note, this face mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries THE Leaping Bunny logo! 😍

Maxbrands Leopard Face Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Maxbrands Leopard Face Sheet Mask which I picked up from my local Home Bargains store. This face mask is aimed at all skin types, and it promises to cleanse pores and to remove excess oil and dirt.

With this mask, you’re supposed to start with a cleansed face. Then put the mask on and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then massage the essence into your skin – then rinse your face with lukewarm water.

Let me start by saying that, if I had realised this wasn’t a leave-on mask, I wouldn’t have bought it. However, I did buy this mask (2 of them), and I’m glad I did! First of all, this mask looked amazing on. The animal print mask is super cute!

I’m also happy with what the mask did to my skin – the mask was cleansing indeed! It made my pores appear smaller as well, and at the same time, it didn’t feel drying it all. This is a good mask, and based on my experience, I would recommend it.

If you’re interested, Maxbrands Leopard Face Sheet Mask is available as a 25ml single-use face mask. I believe I paid £1 for this mask.
