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).

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).
