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.

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.

Skin Treats Glitter Face Silver Hydrogel Glitter Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Glitter Face Silver Hydrogel Glitter Mask. This mask with collagen promises intensive hydration. You’re supposed to use this mask after you’ve cleansed your face. Put the mask on, and leave it on for 20 minutes, then tap the essence into the skin.

When I put on the mask, I remembered that I tried a very similar mask before – with mixed results. First of all, the hydrogel mask is useless. It feels like glibber, and the fit is a total joke – it’s extremely wide, but looking at the length, you’d think it was made for a child. The mask also has glitter stars attached to it – those look like glitter stars you’d find in christmas-themed glitter nail polish. The mask also doesn’t hold any product, so it really is useless. The mask went into the bin right away.

However, the sachet was still full of essence – now what? Well, I simply popped a compressed sheet mask into the sachet and let it soak up the essence. That way I was able to enjoy a regular sheet mask. The essence is actually quite nice – it’s hydrating and refreshing, with hardly any fragrance. The essence left my skin feeling soft and looking plump. What more could I ask for?

If you’re interested, Skin Treats Glitter Face Silver Hydrogel Glitter Mask is available as a 60g single-use mask for £1. I bought mine at my local B&M Bargains store.

Esfolio Hyaluronic Acid With Peach Essence Mask Sheet

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Esfolio Hyaluronic Acid With Peach Essence Mask Sheet. This face mask contains hyaluronic acid and a bunch of botanical ingredients, such as tomato extract, beet extract, pomegranate extract, etc. And it promises to hydrate the skin.

This is a regular leave-on mask. Simply cleanse your face, put the mask on, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin.

I’ve already used 3 of these masks, and I think they’re very good! They’re sooo hydrating and also mildly refreshing. They don’t feel sticky at all, and the subtle peach scent is dreamy too!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these face masks! Esfolio Hyaluronic Acid With Peach Essence Mask Sheet is available as a pack of 10 masks for £7.99 (TK Maxx).

Global Beauty Care Anti Aging Collection Glycolic Acid Spa Treatment Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Global Beauty Care Anti Aging Collection Glycolic Acid Spa Treatment Mask which I found at TK Maxx. This mask is aimed at all skin types, and it works by removing dead skin cells through chemical exfoliation. This mask claims to… help promote cell renewal, reduce oil and help slow down the ageing process for a more radiant appearance.

Here’s the how to! Cleanse your skin, put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes, then take it off and wash off any residue as the essence is powerful and, according to the manufacturer, might cause an unwanted skin reaction.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s brilliant. It has an immediate brightening effect, and it makes my skin feel soft and look more radiant indeed. It doesn’t feel harsh on the skin – pretty much like every other regular sheet mask. However, I did follow the instructions with respect to taking the mask off and washing it off after 15 minutes. Glycolic acid is a powerful ingredient, and it’s best not to overdo it.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this mask (always check you’re not allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients, of course). Global Beauty Care Anti Aging Collection Glycolic Acid Spa Treatment Mask as a pack of 5 masks for £4.99 (TK Maxx). I have used 2 masks, so I have 3 left, but I can see myself stocking up on these!

Farm Skin Mangosteen Balancing Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Farm Skin Mangosteen Balancing Sheet Mask which is part of Farm Skin’s Superfood 7 Pcs face mask set. This sheet mask contains mangosteen extract and hyaluronic acid, and it promises to cleanse and balance the skin.

How does it work? This is a regular sheet mask. Cleanse your face first, leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes, then pat the remaining essence into your skin.

I think this sheet mask is excellent. The essence is hydrating (not sticky), and I enjoyed the subtle fruity scent. With leave-on sheet masks, it’s often not easy to say whether they have a cleansing effect, but my skin looked calm, clean and clear even when I woke up the next day, so this mask kept its cleansing / balancing promise!

Farm Skin Mangosteen Balancing 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! 🥰

Boots Ultra Fine Sheet Mask With Added Pomegranate Extract

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Ultra Fine Sheet Mask With Added Pomegranate Extract which promises to brighten and to hydrate the skin. This is a regular leave-on sheet mask. Cleanse your face, put the mask on, leave it on for about 15-20 minutes, then pat the excess essence into your skin.

I tried this mask the other day, and I did like it. It’s not the most original sheet mask, but I found it hydrating and refreshing. The mask leaves a slightly sticky film on the skin, but it’s not too bad. I would buy this mask again, although using it 2-3 times per week (as it says on the back of the pack) isn’t what I have in mind!

I think this mask is definitely worth a try, and if you’re interested, Boots Ultra Fine Sheet Mask With Added Pomegranate Extract is available as a 25g single-use mask for £1.50. I bought it as part of a bundle of different face masks (6 masks for £5).
