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).

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.

Primark Holler And Glow Flipping Out Printed Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Primark‘s Holler And Glow Flipping Out Sheet Mask. This is a printed sheet mask that promises to hydrate skin deeply. The essence contains rosemary extract, green tea, aloe vera, licorice root extract as well as witch hazel.

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

This mask contains 22ml of essence. This is enough for 2 masks! So once I was done with the sheet mask, I didn’t throw it away. I threw it back into the sachet for it to soak up the leftover essence. And then I enjoyed another sheet mask right away!

Whilst the sheet mask looked cute, I didn’t like the essence because it felt heavy and sticky as soon as I took off the mask. I’m sure you can imagine my disappointment… It also appeared that the mask clogged my pores because my skin broke out a few hours later. I wasn’t impressed!

I won’t repurchase this face mask. But if you’d like to give it a try, Primark‘s Holler And Glow Flipping Out Sheet Mask is available as a 22ml single-use sheet mask. I paid £1 (sale).

The Crème Shop Clean Up, Skin! Animated Koala Face Mask

Hi there! It’s been a while since I picked up this pack of 3 The Crème Shop Clean Up, Skin! Animated Koala Face Masks. I’ve finally gotten around to use these masks, and here’s what I think.

These masks are regular sheet masks. The instructions are fairly standard – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin.

This mask promises to purify skin and to make pores appear smaller. On the back of the sachet it literally says “Say goodbye to gunk”. This sounds great!

A look further down on the back of the sachet shows that these masks contain bamboo charcoal powder as well as a number of plant extracts (with lemon fruit extract being one of them). I was really happy to read this because I love charcoal and all things citrus in skin care!

To make a long story short – this is an excellent face mask! Whilst the sheet mask itself is on the heavier side, the overall fit was quite good. I enjoyed the essence very much, and I’m happy to confirm that this mask does indeed shrink pores! On top of this, I was thrilled to find that this mask has a brightening effect, and that it made my skin glow! Truly fantastic stuff!

I would love to repurchase these face masks, and I would recommend them to everyone who wants sheet masks which have a toning and brightening effect. The Crème Shop Clean Up, Skin! Animated Koala Face Masks are available in packs of 3. I paid £4 for 3 masks at TK Maxx.

Boots Sheet Mask With Added Hyaluronic Acid

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Sheet Mask With Added Hyaluronic Acid. This mask promises to maintain skin’s natural moisture balance and to make skin feel nourished.

The instructions state that you should cleanse your face, then place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. I’ve given this mask a try, and here’s what I think.

The ultra fine sheet mask is wrapped around a face-mask-shaped plastic thingy (?) which is designed to keep the sheet mask in shape. I’m not a fan because, in my opinion, that extra piece of plastic is not only messy to handle, but it’s also useless.

I did like the fit and the feel of the sheet mask. It fit my face shape reasonably well, and it stayed in place.

This mask provides enough essence for 2 sheet masks, so once I took the sheet mask off of my face, I threw it back in the sachet, so it would soak up the remaining essence, and then I enjoyed a second sheet mask right after the first one. 😀

The sheet mask felt great whilst it was still on my face. But this changed quickly once I took it off. The mask left a sticky layer on my face, but it didn’t feel moisturising at all. Underneath the sticky layer, my skin felt tight. This means that the mask did the opposite of what it promised. I had to use plenty of face mist and facial oil to restore my skin to its pre-mask state!

I wouldn’t recommend this face mask at all, but if you’re interested… Boots Sheet Mask With Added Hyaluronic Acid is available as a 25g single-use sheet mask for £1.50.

The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer And Clear “Nice” Stay In Control Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a sheet mask I’m glad I dug up from TK Maxx’s clearance section – The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer And Clear “Nice” Stay In Control Face Mask.

This face mask promises to balance skin tone, to reduce inflammation and puffiness, and to combat acne and oil. On the back of the sachet it says that the mask can be used “to deeply cleanse and detoxify” skin. This sounds great!

I’ve now given this mask a try (well, 2 tries, actually), and I think it’s very good. This is a standard sheet mask that’s supposed to left on the face for 15-20 minutes. I left it on until the mask was dry, and I was (still am) happy with the results.

This mask doesn’t feel sticky, but it feels deeply hydrating and refreshing. A look at the back of the sachet reveals that sodium hyaluronate is the 4th ingredient – this is great! This mask also contains a number of botanical extracts – with lemon fruit extract being one of them. I have no doubt this is why the mask made my skin look and feel clean, clear, refreshed and bright!

I think this is another great mask from The Crème Shop! I’m very happy I picked it up! The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer And Clear “Nice” Stay In Control Face Mask is available as part of a set containing 3 Naughty and 3 Nice face masks – that’s 6 masks in total. I paid £5.99 for the set (TK Maxx).

Skin Treats Blueberry Detox Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Blueberry Detox Sheet Mask. This sheet mask contains 10+ botanical and fruit extracts, and it promises to cleanse and purify the skin.

This mask works like the majority of sheet masks – cleanse your face, apply the sheet mask to your face, leave it on for about 15 minutes (I leave sheet masks on until they’re dry), massage the leftover essence into the skin – and you’re good to go!

I’ve given this mask a try, but I don’t think I’ll buy it again. The mask itself is one of those terrible low quality masks which will have lost their shape by the time you’ve unwrapped them. By the time I had placed it on my face, the mask looked like it had been in a fight.

I found the essence to be refreshing, and I’m happy to report that it didn’t feel sticky at all. However, the mask didn’t make any difference to my skin. Based on my experience, I’m not convinced of its cleansing or purifying powers…

If you’d like to give Skin Treats Blueberry Detox Sheet Mask a try, it’s 99p at Savers and B&M Bargains.
