Beauty Formulas Radiate & Glow Facial Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Beauty Formulas Radiate & Glow Facial Mask with algae extract, lemon fruit extract, mulberry root extract and sodium hyaluronate.

This face mask promises to help restore and replenish the skin for a more invigorated and radiant feel.

The instructions say: Cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes – then rinse, pat dry… job done!

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! It feels hydrating, soothing, and at the same time it also feels refreshing.

This mask was unexpectedly good! I would have preferred a leave-on formula because I think the skin absorbs more of the essence if it’s left on and not rinsed off. I might be wrong, but this is how I feel. Either way, this mask is very good, and I will buy it again!

Beauty Formulas Radiate & Glow Facial Mask is available as a single use sheet mask at Savers drugstores. I believe I paid 79p for it – what a bargain!

Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream which I’ve been using for a little while now. This eye cream promises to moisturise and to brighten dull skin around the eyes. It also claims to improve skin’s elasticity and to reduce wrinkles.

This eye cream contains plenty of amazing ingredients – niacinamide, ceramide, collagen, hyaluronic acid, vitamins B, C and E (and others) as well as a number (I stopped counting at 15) of botanics extracts like aloe leaf juice, grapefruit and lime extracts, and many more!

I think this eye cream is wonderful! It’s one of my 2 all-time favourite eye products (the other one’s Olay’s original eye gel). Here’s why: I love the formula. It’s silky and smooth – almost like a serum. The eye cream is easy to apply, and it sinks right into the skin. It plays well with all the other products I’m using (toner, serum, facial oil, moisturiser, foundation, eyeshadow, etc.), and I have no complaints.

I have no lines around my eyes (Phew!), so I can’t comment on whether this eye cream would help with this. Having said this, I have no reason to doubt this eye cream’s youth-restoring powers because it keeps its other promises. I’m happy to report that this eye cream has improved the elasticity of the skin around my eyes, that it’s wonderfully hydrating, and that is really is brightening!

All in all, I love this eye cream, and there’s not a single thing about it that I’m not 100% happy with. Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream is one of my new beauty favourites! I’d love to tell you how much product you’re getting, but this isn’t mentioned anywhere – I found this is the case with lots of products from Korea. However, I think it’s more than 15ml. Now, let’s look at the price – I only paid £6 for this fantastic product! Thank you, TK Maxx!

Primark PS… Charcoal. Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Charcoal Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask. This mask promises to draw out excess oil and impurities for cleansed pores and purified skin.

The essence contains orange and lemon fruit extracts, another few botanical extracts and charcoal powder. This mask is supposed to be left on for 10-15 minutes, and you should wash your face after use.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really powerful! I could feel the cleansing effect within seconds of placing the mask on my face. It was lovely! I was also happy when I saw that the mask left my pores looking smaller, and that it made my skin look a bit brighter. I think this is a great bubble sheet mask, and I will buy it again, no doubt!

Primark‘s PS… Charcoal Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask is available as a 20g single-use face mask for £1.50.

Primark PS… Soothing Cream Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week, and it’s also the last post this Face Mask Week. And it’s about this Primark PS… Soothing Cream Mask.

This mask promises to soothe and to hydrate skin. You’re supposed to cleanse your skin, then apply the mask to your face and neck. After about 15 minutes, rinse it off! And that’s already it!

A look at the ingredients shows that the mask is bursting with botanical extracts. This is great! I’ve given the mask a try, and I think it’s really nice. I would agree that the mask felt soothing and hydrating! One more thing I’d like to mention is that the mask has an interesting texture – it’s a jelly with pulp. It’s unusual, but it’s the perfect mask for a home spa day!

Primark PS… Soothing Cream Mask is available as 15ml for 80p at Primark. I’ll buy more of these!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Lemon Macaron

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Montagne Jeunesse Lemon Macaron face mask which I picked up at my local Primark store.

I thought this mask was a clay mask – but it’s actually a rinse-off moisture mask.

How does it work? The instructions state that you should do a patch test. If your skin tolerates the product without any issues, you should cleanse your face, apply the mask all over your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse it off.

The result it promises is “intense moisturisation for super soft skin”.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s OK. It’s not really moisturising, but it’s one of those face masks which are nice enough when you take a long bath.

I won’t buy this mask again, but in case you’re interested… Montagne Jeunesse Lemon Macaron is available as 25ml for 90p at Primark.

Derma V10 Flamingo Printed Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Derma V10 Flamingo Printed Sheet Mask. This face mask promises to leave skin soft, smooth and more radiant. You’re supposed to leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence from the sachet into your skin.

This face mask contains a number of botanical ingredients – bamboo lily extract, coconut extract, horse mint leaf extract, bourbon geranium extract, etc. I didn’t expect this from such a cheap mask (£1, Poundland).

I’ve now given this mask a try, and I think it’s OK. Yes, it feels hydrating, but it also leaves the skin feeling a bit sticky. I also think I’ve had this mask before (sold under the brand name Skin Treats). The feel of the mask and the annoying coconut fragrance gave it away.

If you don’t hate coconut scents, and if you don’t mind sticky face masks, you might want to give this mask a try. Derma V10 Flamingo Printed Sheet Mask is available as a single-use face mask for about £1 at bargain stores.

Maxbrands Sence Beauty Blackhead Peel-Off Facial Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Maxbrands Sence Beauty Blackhead Peel-Off Facial Mask with charcoal extract. This mask promises to cleanse pores and to exfoliate skin.

This mask also comes with a warning – this is powerful stuff, and it should only be used as directed. So use it on your forehead, nose and chin area. If you notice any issues with the mask, wash it off immediately!

I knew what to expect with this product because I’ve previously tried its sister product. So when I tried this mask, it there were no surprises. Don’t be alarmed, this mask didn’t cause me any physical harm. However, this mask is super powerful. It pulls out impurities (Say goodbye to the black spots on your nose!) because it really clings to the skin. It also pulls out facial hair, so if you’re sensitive, you should shave your face before you use this mask. Otherwise it will rip out all of your peach fuzz!

All in all, this mask is simply amazing. I’d recommend it to everyone with skin impurities (assuming you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients). Just make sure you read the warning that comes with the product and follow the instructions, OK?

Maxbrands Sence Beauty Blackhead Peel-Off Facial Mask is available as a pack of 5 for 99p (Home Bargains, Poundstretcher). This is a total bargain!
