April Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for my monthly favourites post! As always, I’ve chosen my 3 favourites from all the products I’ve reviewed this month. And I’ve thrown in a few honourable mentions as well. Let’s start with the TOP 3!

3rd place – Superdrug Simply Pure Leave On Water Mask

It took me a few days to fall in love with this product. After the first try I wanted to return it. But I’m glad I didn’t. Yes, this mask is unusual, but it’s amazing, and that’s all that counts.

Runner-Up – Palmolive So Tempting & Be Sensual Shower Gels

I could kick myself for not trying these shower gels sooner. If you’re looking for shower gels to go with your Prada Infusion d’Iris or Flower by Kenzo frargrances, look no further!

WINNER – Hunny Bee Lavender Face Mask Infused With Charcoal

Hunny Bee’s Charcoal & Lavender sheet masks are really something. They made my skin look and feel cleansed and refreshed, and they made my pores appear considerably smaller. Awesome stuff!

Onto the honourable mentions! Garnier’s Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub is very good. Boots’ Extracts Luscious Vanilla products are all-time favourites, and Superdrug’s Cucumber Peel-Off Mask is very nice!

Have you tried any of these products? Which products did you love the most this month? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Hunny Bee Lavender Face Mask Infused With Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is a review of Hunny Bee’s Lavender Infused With Charcoal Face Mask. This sheet mask promises to be a deep cleansing treatment that purifies the skin and helps get rid of blackheads. It also claims to refine pores.

How does it work? The instructions state that the mask should be left on for 10 to 15 minutes after which you’re supposed to massage the excess serum into your skin. I left the mask on for almost an hour (=until it was dry), and I was really happy with the results!

When I removed the mask I could see that my skin looked clear and refreshed, and that my pores were visibly smaller. This amazing effect lasted for 3 days! I also thought that the serum felt deeply hydrating without being greasy (which was amazing too) ! To sum it up, this skin treatment worked, and I really enjoyed it!

I would recomment this sheet mask to anyone who wants clearer skin. Hunny Bee’s Lavender Infused With Charcoal Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Major Haul! Awesome New Products / Beauty Stuff I Bought In September And October

Hi there! I forgot to do a haul post last month, so today I’m showing you what I bought in September and October. 🙂

I bought a set of 5 SpaScriptions face masks – the set was £4.99. I also bought a set of 5 panda face masks – this set was £4.99 as well. TK Maxx

I bought a Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Mask (£4), a large 1kg Kallos Multivitamin hair mask (£7.99), and a Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Creamy Cleanser (£4). TK Maxx

I picked up 3 Superdrug items – a Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak (£1.47), a Glycolic Tonic (=toner) and another Glycolic Overnight Peel to replace the one I finished. The last 2 products were £5.99 each, but there was a buy 1 get 1 free offer, so I paid £5.99 in total for the 2 Naturally Radiant products.

I got a few more masks – I couldn’t resist those Hunny Bee grapefruit masks (£4.99 for a set of 5 masks), and I bought another SpaScriptions mask set (£4.99 for a set of 5 masks). TK Maxx

I found an Argan & Marula shampoo and conditioner combo (99p each) and a My Little Pony shower gel (99p). Home Bargains

I got another Superfacialist Rose Hydrate product – I bought the Day Cream (£6.99), and I picked up 2 Sanctuary Spa Being fragrances (£3.75 each). And I spent £6.99 on my Superfacialist Vitamin C + Brighten night cream. TK Maxx, Boots

The Zatik Passionfruit Cacao Lotion was £5, the Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream was £6, and the Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner was £6 as well. TK Maxx

I bought a big It’s True Moisture Cream (£9.99), a Smack Beauty Firming Night Cream (£3), and another Hunny Bee mask set (£4.99 for 5 masks). TK Maxx

I got my hands on a Skin Care Chemist Macadamia Beauty Oil (£3), and I bought a Sukin Chia Seed Oil+ Foaming Facial Cleanser set. The set was £7.99 which is excellent value because the chia seed oil is usually £14.95 on its own! TK Maxx

And I bought 2 big jars of compressed sheet masks. These were £4.99 each. The bamboo jar contained 22 masks, the assorted jar contained 23 masks. TK Maxx

This is everything I bought in September and October. It’s quite a lot, I think. 🙂 Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of them? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
