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).

Simple Rich Moisture Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Simple Rich Moisture Sheet Mask. This sheet mask claims to be the “perfect antidote to dry city skin”. It contains a small number of botanical extracts which promise to “infuse active ingredients into the skin”.

This sheet mask is supposed to be used post-cleansing. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin…

I’ve given this mask a try, and I’m satisfied that it delivers on its promise. The essence is rich and hydrating without feeling heavy or being sticky. I’m happy with the fit of the mask too! All in all, I’d recommend this mask, and I know I’ll buy it again!

Simple Rich Moisture Sheet Mask is available as a 21ml single-use face mask. I paid £1.49 (B&M Bargains).

Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Apricot

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel with Apricot. This easy-to-use product promises to exfoliate skin. All you have to do is massage a small amount of peeling gel (half a teaspoon tops) over your face and neck. The gel balls up – and this is how it exfoliates your skin. Ekél recommends the product be used once a week.

I’ve been using this peeling gel once to twice weekly for a few weeks now, and I’m enjoying it very much. I’ve already used a few peeling gels from this brand, and I’m happy to report that this apricot version is simply lovely. I’m satisfied that this peeling gel removes dead skin cells and takes care of rough and dry patches, and that it makes my skin feel super soft.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this peeling gel to anyone who’s looking for a gentle, yet effective facial exfoliating product. Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel with Apricot is available as 180ml. I paid £4 (TK Maxx).

Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask

Hi there! I’ve got a face mask review for you today. And it’s about this Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask. This mask promises to calm and soothe skin. The essence contains cucumber juice, sodium hyaluronate and a number of flower, leaf and root extracts.

This mask is supposed to be used on cleansed skin. Simply leave it on for 10-20 minutes. Then massage the leftover essence into your skin. Alrighty, here’s what I think of this mask…

First of all, since the sachet contains A LOT of runny essence, here’s what I’ve done: I enjoyed the sheet mask as recommended. Once it was almost dry, I threw it back into the sachet so it would soak up the remaining essence. Then I enjoyed another sheet mask right away.

But how’s the mask? I think it’s good but not great. I would agree that it’s soothing and calming – but I wouldn’t recommend using it on freshly exfoliated skin because the mask might have the opposite effect. I know because I made this mistake once!

Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask is available as a 20ml single use sheet mask. On the back of the sachet it says that the mask was not tested on animals, and that it’s suitable for vegans. I received a number of these masks as a gift with purchase (Superdrug).

Boots Sheet Mask With Added Collagen

HI there! I’ve got a face mask review for you today – and it’s about this Boots Sheet Mask With Added Collagen. This ultra-thin sheet mask promises to leave skin looking smoother and more radiant.

The mask is easy to use (once you’ve managed to free it from the mask-shaped piece of plastic it’s wrapped around). So… cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. Job done!

I’ve given this mask a try, and I found that it made my skin look smoother. There was no difference in skin radiance (my skin looks quite alright at the moment, so I have no reason to complain right now), but I’ve noticed that this mask plumped up my skin. This was visible on my forehead and around my eyes. Impressive!

Having said this, I won’t repurchase this sheet mask. The piece of plastic that comes with these ultra-thin sheet masks is very annoying, and I don’t like the strong, chemical fragrance. To be fair, the other 2 masks I’ve previously tried and reviewed from this range smelled the same; I haven’t mentioned it before, but now that I’ve used mask number 3, the fragrance registers as unpleasant to me.

Anyhoo, if you’d like to give it a try… Boots Sheet Mask With Added Collagen is available as a 25g single-use sheet mask for £1.50.
