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!

Bioré Charcoal Whipped Purifying Detox Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Bioré Charcoal Whipped Purifying Detox Mask. This is a cooling mask that promises to purify the skin. You’re supposed to leave this mask on for 5 minutes – then wash it off with warm water. I’ve given this mask a try, and here’s what I think…

I think this mask is sensational! I didn’t care for the cooling effect, but this mask is amazing in every other way. First of all, the mask didn’t dry which made it easy to rinse it off. The mask made my pores appear much, much smaller, it made my skin look matte and clear, and it didn’t cause any redness or dry patches. This is great!

Before I used the mask I had a few minor impurities and 2 red spots – by the time I had washed the mask off, one of the red spots had shrunk to a tiny little pink dot and the other one had disappeared along with all the minor impurities. Wow! WOW!

The best thing is that one sachet provided enough product for me and for my husband. So we got 2 face masks for the price of 1! If you’re interested, Bioré Charcoal Whipped Purifying Detox Mask is available as 15ml. I paid £1 (Savers).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution.

Deep Action is Superdrug’s clear skin range. And now they’ve done 3 new skin care “solutions”. I’ve looked at all of them, but I opted for this one since it seems to be the one with the highest number of active ingredients.

In addition, this product promises to promote brighter and more even skin – so it was an obvious choice!

The instructions state… “Use three times a week, in the evening, on cleansed skin, using a cotton pad. Avoid the eye area and allow to fully absorb into skin.

I think the instructions could have been a lot better. But in a nutshell, you’re supposed to use this product like a toner – just steer clear of your eye area! Once you’ve gone over your face a couple dozen times (yes, that’s how I do it), just leave it alone for a little while (I give it 10 minutes) before you apply any other products to your face.

I’ve been using this product every other night for about 6 weeks now, and I’m blown away! I think this is the most effective brightening product I’ve ever tried. It’s unbelievably powerful, and it’s even better than Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic. I agree with Superdrug’s claim that results are visible after 2 weeks. This stuff is incredible! I’ve used it on my face and on my body, and I’m happy to report this product took care of everything!

All in all, I’m glad I bought 2 bottles when they were on a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion. When Superdrug ran the same promotion again, I bought 4 more bottles!

Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution is vegan and certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). It’s available as 30ml for £5.99.

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel Off Mask which contains cucumber, jasmine and ginseng root extracts.

This mask promises to free pores from dirt and to lift off dead skin cells. All you have to do: Apply the mask to your face, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then peel it off. After that, simply wash your face, and you’re good to go. ☺️

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! I like the fresh cucumber scent, and I’m happy with its first rate cleansing powers. This a very effective peel off mask! Montagne Jeunesse should take note because this is what their cucumber peel off mask should be like!

The Crème Shop Pumpkin Spice Fusion Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this The Crème Shop Pumpkin Spice Fusion Sheet Mask with pumpkin and cinnamon. According to The Crème Shop, pumpkin enzymes help boost skin cell renewal to reveal a rejuvenated and brighter complexion, and cinnamon absorbs excess sebum.

This is a sheet mask which is supposed to be left on for 15-20 minutes. I always leave sheet masks on until they’re dry to make the most of the product. 😎

I’ve now used 3 of these masks already, and I think they’re fantastic. I would agree that these masks make my skin look brighter, clearer and more refreshed. At the same time I’ve also noticed a calming and smoothing (!) effect. I’m enjoying these masks very much, and I would recommend them.

If you’re looking for a product that has a calming effect on moody skin, or if you want a product that gives you a brighter and fresher complexion, these sheet masks are for you! The Crème Shop Pumpkin Spice Fusion Sheet Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Skin Treats Blueberry Detox Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Blueberry Detox Sheet Mask. This sheet mask contains 10+ botanical and fruit extracts, and it promises to cleanse and purify the skin.

This mask works like the majority of sheet masks – cleanse your face, apply the sheet mask to your face, leave it on for about 15 minutes (I leave sheet masks on until they’re dry), massage the leftover essence into the skin – and you’re good to go!

I’ve given this mask a try, but I don’t think I’ll buy it again. The mask itself is one of those terrible low quality masks which will have lost their shape by the time you’ve unwrapped them. By the time I had placed it on my face, the mask looked like it had been in a fight.

I found the essence to be refreshing, and I’m happy to report that it didn’t feel sticky at all. However, the mask didn’t make any difference to my skin. Based on my experience, I’m not convinced of its cleansing or purifying powers…

If you’d like to give Skin Treats Blueberry Detox Sheet Mask a try, it’s 99p at Savers and B&M Bargains.

Maxbrands Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend! This week I’m going to post about face masks only, so this week is going to be FACE MASK WEEK. ☺️ And today’s post is about Maxbrands’ Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask for normal skin.

Maxbrands is a brand from the Netherlands. I’ve never seen their products anywhere in the UK – until I found their face masks (gold masks and charcoal masks) at my local Home Bargains store. Since a pack of 5 masks was 99p only, I picked up 2 packs right away.

This gold mask promises to give skin a deep cleanse and to remove blackheads. I’ve now used 2 of these masks, and I think they’re the most powerful peel-off masks ever. But let’s start from the beginning…

First of all, if you use peel-off masks a lot, you’re probably used to them being runny. However, these gold masks are much thicker, almost paste-like. These masks don’t take long to dry. I think that leaving them on for 15 minutes is more than enough. Now, when you remove the mask, you have to be extra careful – because it removes blackheads AND facial hair.

If I had known how powerful this mask is before I’d used it, I would have shaved my face. I’m serious! Trust me, you have no idea how much peach fuzz you have until those teeny tiny strands of baby hair are pulled out. My face was bright red for about an hour after I removed the mask, but that was from the unexpected and unwanted peach fuzz removal; this was not an allergic reaction.

Having mentioned this, this mask is actually one of my new favourite products. It made my pores squeaky clean, and it completely transformed my husband’s nose after a single use. My husband enjoys an occasional face mask, but his nose has always been a problem (nose strips didn’t help – we tried). Now I don’t want to spoil your dinner, so all I’m going to say is that once my husband peeled the mask off of his nose, he was actually ashamed of how much gunk it caught. It wasn’t pretty, but again, a single use of this mask completely transformed his nose.

Based on my experience, I would recommend this face mask to anyone who’s fighting a losing battle against their blackheads. Just be aware that you might want to consider shaving your face before you use this mask. I will continue to use this mask on a regular basis, and I have already stocked up on this amazing little product!

Maxbrands’ Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks I paid 99p (Home Bargains).
