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).

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).

Jiinju Avocado Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Jiinju Avocado Sheet Mask. This sheet mask promises to hydrate skin deeply. It’s very easy to use – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10-20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin. I had 3 of these masks – and I’ve used them all now, and here’s what I think…

I think this is a really nice face mask. The “essence” is more of a fluid-to-cream formula. The mask looks and feels like it was drenched in a moisturising cream. I found this mask very enjoyable, and I would recommend it to people with dry skin. It’s probably too rich for people with oily skin, but that tells you how deeply moisturising and nourishing this mask is!

Jiinju Avocado 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).

The Crème Shop Maca Root Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this The Crème Shop Maca Root Face Mask. On the back of the sachet it reads that maca root is a skin super food that’s rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids. And the mask claims to promote revitalised skin and more skin strength, energy and glow.

This mask is easy to use – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then take it off and massage the remaining essence into your skin.

I think this is a great little face mask. It feels deeply hydrating without being greasy or sticky, it has a subtle soapy fragrance, and it feels refreshing and energising. I would also agree that this mask has a plumping effect and that it makes my skin look a little glowy. Based on my experience, I would recommend this face mask!

The Crème Shop Maca Root Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 face masks. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).
