Elizavecca Milky Piggy Aqua Rising Argan Gelato Steam Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Elizavecca Milky Piggy Aqua Rising Argan Gelato Steam Cream which I’ve been using for a few weeks now. This product contains a number of great ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and a number of botanical extracts. Sounds good!

This face cream has a lovely and subtle floral fragrance. Its texture feels waxy – but it changes to thick-yet-watery as soon as it’s applied to the skin. I cannot really describe the change of texture any better, but it feels like the wax is turning to water on your skin. At the same time it still feels rich and deeply nourishing. This is definitely unique!

I’m also very happy with the level of hydration my skin is getting from this face cream. My skin looks nice and plump, and whilst the look and sound of the cream made me a bit cautious (if your skin has ever reacted badly to a product, you know what I mean), I’m happy to report that the face cream is super gentle on my skin. This is one of my favourite products this month for sure!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face cream to everyone with normal to dry skin. However, always check the ingredients to make sure a product is suitable for you, and if in doubt, please do a patch test!

And about Elizavecca products – when you buy those, please be careful. There are lots of fakes out there – some more obvious than others. Please only buy from reputable sellers. If the product isn’t sealed or the spelling is funny (i.e cosmetiocs), get a refund and always report the seller as it’s quite possible that they sit on a large quantity of counterfeit stock which they will continue to sell.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Aqua Rising Argan Gelato Steam Cream is available as 100g. I paid £9.99 at TK Maxx.

Bling Pop Soothing & Brightening Face Mask With Pumpkin

Hi there! Today’s I’m revieweing a face mask – Bling Pop’s Soothing & Brightening Face Mask With Pumpkin. In addition to pumpkin fruit extract, vitamin E and sodium hyaluronate, this mask contains a number of botanical extracts. This is nice!

In order to get the best results, you’re supposed to use the mask after you’ve cleansed your face. Leave it on for 15 – 20 minutes, then massage the remaining essence from the sachet into your skin.

I think this face mask is fantastic. I’ve already used 4 of the 10 masks I’ve got, and I’m really happy with them. I agree that these masks brighten my skin (although this effect is temporary), and I can confirm that these masks feel soothing and smoothing. These masks make my skin look great!

Bling Pop’s Soothing & Brightening Face Mask With Pumpkin is available as a pack of 10 sheet masks. I only paid £5.99 (TK Maxx) for these amazing face masks!

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!

Sugu Beauty Refreshing Panda Face Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Sugu Beauty Refreshing Panda Face Sheet Mask. This mask contains a number of botanical extracts as well as sodium hyaluronate. This is a regular sheet mask – use it after you’ve cleansed your face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Then massage the remaining essence from the sachet into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s good but not great. I agree that the essence felt refreshing, and I’m happy to report that it didn’t leave my skin feeling sticky. But I don’t think that the mask made any real difference to my skin at all.

The mask itself looked super cute. It was a really good fit for my face, but the ear shapes weren’t great because I had to fold them over. Anyhoo, this is a decent mask, and I’m glad I gave it a try. If you’re interested, Sugu Beauty Refreshing Panda Face Sheet Mask is available as a 27ml single-use face mask. I paid £1 (Poundland).

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Moisturising Sheet Mask With Avocado

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Moisturising Sheet Mask With Avocado. This sheet mask also contains collagen, vitamin E and aloe vera leaf juice. This sheet mask is supposed to be used after cleansing. Simply leave it on for 20 minutes while you relax, then massage the remaining essence from the sachet into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s quite good. It feels hydrating and mildly refreshing. I found this mask to be super gentle, and I would recommend it!

Primark’s PS… Moisturising Sheet Mask With Avocado is available as a 23g single-use face mask for 80p. The sheet mask itself is bio-degradable, and the mask is certified cruelty-free (all of Primark’s own brand beauty stuff now carries the Leaping Bunny logo)! Good stuff!

Primark PS… Retinol Fusing Facial Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I bought and tried just recently – it’s this Primark PS… Retinol Fusing Sheet Mask.

With this product, the actual sheet mask and the essence are separated. So you have to turn the sachet upside down and give it a good squeeze for the essence to reach the sheet mask. Once the mask has absorbed the essence, you can use it (just leave it on for 15-20 minutes, don’t rinse).

This mask promises to make skin appear smoother. Whilst the mask felt nice and relaxing, I don’t think it did anything to my face. When I removed the mask, I found that it left my face feeling a little sticky. It wasn’t too bad. However, I would have preferred not to have a sticky face.

All in all, I liked the novelty-effect of a fusing mask, but since it didn’t give me any results, I won’t buy it again.

If you’re interested, Primark PS… Retinol Fusing Sheet Mask is available as 20g for £2. I paid 50p (clearance).

Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Hydrate Priming Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Prep & Perfect Hydrate Priming Sheet Mask. This mask contains lotus root extract, cogon grass root extract as well as sodium hyaluronate, and it promises to help revitalise and to hydrate the skin.

This sheet mask is easy to use – cleanse your face, enjoy the mask for 20 minutes, then treat your skin to a massage using the leftover essence from the sachet.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! It feels refreshing and hydrating, it seems to have a very gentle and very pleasant cooling effect, and it’s not sticky! I think this is a great product! And whilst the actual sheet mask is not great (it goes out of shape the moment you touch it), I’m happy to give it a pass because it’s bio-degradeable. I hope other mask manufacturers follow suit. All sheet masks should be bio-degradeable!

Primark‘s PS… Prep & Perfect Hydrate Priming Sheet Mask is available as a 25ml single use face mask. It’s 80p at Primark. This mask is also 100% cruelty-free (like all of Primark’s beauty products). It carries the Leaping Bunny logo (=certified cruelty-free).

Boots Sheet Mask With Added Dipeptide

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Sheet Mask With Added Dipeptide. This mask promises to fill in fine lines and to make skin look more radiant.

How does it work? Cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence from the sachet into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really nice! There are 4 masks in this collection, and this is by far the best of the bunch! First of all, this mask doesn’t have that weird fragrance (it’s actually more of a smell) that the other 3 masks have. This was a nice surprise!

I’m also happy to report that this mask seems to fill in the fine lines on my forehead, and that it gave my skin a nice glow. I really liked that a lot!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask! Boots Sheet Mask With Added Dipeptide is available as a 25g single-use sheet mask for £1.50.

Skin Treats Koala Super Soothing Printed Sheet Mask, Skin Treats No Prob Llama Hydrating Sheet Mask

Hi there! This week’s going to be face mask week, and the first post is about two super cute face masks – Skin Treats Koala Super Soothing Printed Sheet Mask and Skin Treats No Prob Llama Hydrating Sheet Mask.

These masks are supposed to be used on cleansed skin – simply leave them on for 15-20 minutes and massage the leftover essence from the sachet into your skin.

I’ve given these 2 masks a try, and I think they’re OK. Whilst I agree that the masks are hydrating, they’re a bit sticky, and they smell strongly of coconuts. I don’t like the taste or smell of coconuts, so I didn’t enjoy the masks as much as I would have liked to. Yes, this applies to both masks because they’re the exact same thing (apart from the design).

On a more positive note, the masks are super cute and fun to use. Personally, I preferred the koala mask. The eyelashes and the big nose were impossibly cute. The llama mask was great too, but I would have preferred it without the glasses.

I won’t repurchase these masks (because of their strong coconut fragrance), but if you’re interested, Skin Treats Koala Super Soothing Printed Sheet Mask and Skin Treats No Prob Llama Hydrating Sheet Mask are available as 20ml single-use sheet masks. I paid £1 each (B&M Bargains, Savers).
