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.

Boots Sheet Mask With Added Peptide

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Boots Sheet Mask With Added Peptide. This mask promises to leave your skin looking smoother & feeling nourished. Using this mask is easy – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin.

I don’t like that this ultra-thin sheet mask is wrapped around a mask-shaped piece of plastic. It’s incredibly messy, and it wastes a lot of the essence.

Having said that, this mask is actually very good. It made my skin feel super soft, and I have to say that it made my skin look smooth and glowy too. Based on this, I would recommend it. However, I won’t repurchase it.

Boots Sheet Mask With Added Peptide is available as a 25g single-use sheet mask for £1.50.

By Nature Nourishing & Firming Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this By Nature Nourishing & Firming Face Mask. This face mask contains manuka honey, collagen and rosehip oil, and it promises to soothe, nourish, moisturise and firm the skin.

This sheet mask is supposed to be left on for 10 minutes before you have to rinse it off. OK then… but is this mask any good?

I didn’t expect much from this mask because I’ve previously tried a mask from this brand, and that mask it wasn’t good. However, this mask is actually very good. Even though this is a rinse-off mask, I noticed a firming effect which could be seen and felt for a day (maybe a day and a half). I have a few of these masks, and I’m happy to use them.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask! By Nature Nourishing & Firming Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 single-use face masks. I paid £5.99 (TK Maxx).

Primark PS… Smoothing Dead Sea Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Smoothing Dead Sea Mask which I picked up for 80p. This face mask contains clay, minerals, shea butter, and mango and lemon fruit extracts, and it promises to condition the skin.

This mask is easy to use – apply it to your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off, and you’re good to go. Read on if you’d like to know if this mask is any good.

I think this mask is one of the best masks I’ve tried all year. It made my skin feel and look considerably cleaner, clearer, brighter, and smoother. I really loved the results, and I kept looking at my face in the mirror for several minutes. This mask is a true all-in-one face mask and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it!

Primark‘s PS… Smoothing Dead Sea Mask is available for 80p. I hope to find a few more of these masks because I’d love to stock up!

Skin Treats Pomegranate Rejuvenating Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Skin Treats Pomegranate Rejuvenating Sheet Mask. This mask claims to be rich in smoothing and uplifting nutrients, and it claims to revitalise skin.

Using the mask is easy – cleanse your face, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15 – 20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s nothing special. It’s mildly refreshing, and it’s not overly sticky, but that’s already it. I won’t repurchase this mask.

Skin Treats Pomegranate Rejuvenating Sheet Mask is available as a single use face mask for £1. I bought mine at B&M Bargains.
