Boots Plastic Free Fabric Sheet Mask With Added Glycolic Acid

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Plastic Free Fabric Sheet Mask With Added Glycolic Acid. Wash your face, put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes, then pat the leftover essence into your skin. Boots recommends the mask be used 2-3 times a week for best results.

I’ve used one of these masks so far, and I found it excellent. I’m happy to report that it made my skin look brighter and refreshed, and that it left my skin feeling amazing. I will buy this mask again, no doubt, although I don’t think I can commit to using the same mask 2-3 times per week.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend the face mask. Since it contains glycolic acid, make sure you follow the instructions for use and after care, especially when you’ve never used products with glycolic acid before. If you’re interested, Boots Plastic Free Fabric Sheet Mask With Added Glycolic Acid is available as a 16g single-use sheet mask for £1.50. According to Boots, this mask is cruelty-free and suitable for vegans! 😍

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask with raspberry, cranberry and red grape.

I used to like this mask (initially I didn’t cae for it, but it grew on me after a few uses). I haven’t used it in years though (the reason is my ever growing stash of face masks).

When I saw that Superdrug gave their own-brand face mask collection a make-over, I thought it’s time to repurchase a few of the masks I used to like or love.

This peel-off mask is supposed to left on for 10-20 minutes (until it’s dry). It promises to remove dead skin cells and to leave skin with a radiant glow.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s good. I enjoyed the fruity fragrance, and I’m happy to report that the mask left my skin feeling super soft. I will definitely buy this mask again – hopefully it won’t be another couple of years!

If you’re interested, Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask with raspberry, cranberry and red grape is available as a ml single-use mask for 99p. I bought 3 of these masks on a 3 for 2 offer.

Mitomo Retinol Facial Essence Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Mitomo Retinol Facial Essence Mask. This mask contains retinol, aloe vera extract and sodium hyaluronate. It’s a leave-on mask. Cleanse your face, then put the mask on. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. Then follow with your normal skin care.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s one of the best face masks I’ve ever used. Ever! It’s the bomb! The mask feels amazing on – it’s refreshing and hydrating, it’s not sticky and it feels just so comfortable! When I took the mask off, I found my skin to be looking amazing – fresh, plump, relaxed. Wow! I didn’t put anything on my skin after the mask, and I’m happy to report that my skin looked and felt amazing the entire day.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these masks! Mitomo Retinol Facial Essence Mask is available as a pack of 5 x 25g single-use sheet masks for £3.99 (TK Maxx). I will stock up for sure!

Global Beauty Care Collagen Spa Treatment Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Global Beauty Care Collagen Spa Treatment Mask. This sheet mask contains collagen, essential fatty acids, grapefruit extract and sodium hyaluronate. It promises to firm, tone and revive skin elasticity, and it claims to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 15 minutes.

How does it work? Cleanse your face before you put the mask on. Leave it on for 15 minutes – not for longer as it can irritate the skin. Then rinse off any residue.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. It felt great, and I would agree that the mask made my skin look and feel toned, refreshed and revived. I loved the look and feel of my skin after using this mask! Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask.

If you’re interested, Global Beauty Care Collagen Spa Treatment Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

NSPA Fruit Extracts Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Rich Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about this NSPA Fruit Extracts Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Rich Body Butter which I found at Asda. This body butter contains natural vitamins for healthy skin. I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now, and here’s what I think…

This body butter is lovely! It’s rich and nourishing, but it’s absorbed quickly. This body butter makes my skin feel super soft, and the cherry fragrance is incredibly juicy and natural. I’m enjoying this body butter very much!

NSPA Fruit Extracts Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Rich Body Butter is available as 200ml. NSPA body butters are usually £3, but last week I’ve seen them for £1.50 at Asda.

Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub. This is a single-use scrub, and it was part of one of the Sanctuary Spa Christmas gift sets I bought for half price on Boxing Day. This salt scrub contains Dead Sea salts and a blend of jojoba, coconut and almond oils. It promises to exfoliate and nourish skin in one go.

There are 2 ways to use this scrub. If you use it in the shower, rub the scrub into wet skin. But you can also use it in the bath. In this case, rub it over dry skin, then carefully (!) step into the bath and let the warm water melt away the salts!

I’ve given this scrub a try, and I think it’s excellent. It’s a typical salt scrub – it’s a very effective exfoliant, but it also nourishes the skin. I enjoyed it very much! The fragrance is the typical Sanctuary Spa fragrance. So whilst this scrub contains coconut oil, I’m happy to report that it doesn’t smell of coconut at all.

What else? Of course, this type of products leaves the shower or bath slippery, so please be super careful and get your partner, child, house-mate, etc to clean the shower or bath tub. 😁 Hey, this is a spa treatment. You’re not supposed to clean your own bathroom right after!

If you’re interested, Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub is available as 650g for £14.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim & Ciaté Party Shoes

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this simple mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim (2 quick and easy coats). This is a beautiful blue polish. I love the colour and the formula. And despite the intense colour, it doesn’t stain.

The glitter top coat I used it Ciaté Party Shoes (1 coat). This is a so-so top coat. The glitter is actually really cute, but the top coat has a strangely dull finish, so it requires an extra layer of clear polish or regular top coat on top. 🤦‍♀️

All in all, this mani looked alright. My husband liked it a lot, so I have no reason to complain.

Empties – April 2021

Hi there! It’s the first weekday in May, so it’s time for my April Empties post. I used 11 single-use face masks – and you can read about my latest face mask finds here. Now let’s get to the bigger bottles, tubes and tubs!

1 Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Shampoo & Conditioner – I loved this conditioner (and the matching shampoo). Unfortunately, the entire Blends line has been discontinued. 😦

2 Sainsburys The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak – what a surprise find! I have repurchased this one already! My husband used this bath product too, so this is a shared empty.

3 Boots Live + Be Beautiful Connection Bath Soak – this was nice, but I wouldn’t buy it again. I’ve had enough rose-scented stuff for the moment.

4 Ciaté Cabaret – I liked this colour. I wore it on its own a few times, and it looked really good. I won’t repurchase it though. I have lots of similar nail polishes.

5 Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Lotion – a beauty staple! Love it! ♥

6 Cellio It’s True Honey Moisture Cream – a lovely moisturiser. I would buy it again!

7 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist – the perfect Mugler Alien dupe as a body mist. I have already stocked up.

8 Tesco Kind & Pure Refreshing Face Wash – a decent face wash. I’d repurchase it (although not now as I have a few other face washes to finish).

9 Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Scrub – a great product. Too bad the entire line has been discontinued! 😦

10 Radox “Perky Peach” Peach & Berry Scent Shower Gel – a great shower gel! I’d like to buy it again.

11 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Lotion – I’m glad this body lotion is gone! Bye!

12 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Shower Foam – I didn’t care for it at all, and I won’t buy it again.

13 Boots Live + Be Awakening Glow Body Mist – this was nice enough while it lasted, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

14 Creightons Manuka Honey Hydrating Hand Cream – one of my favourite hand creams. I would like to repurchase it!

15 Creightons Cocoa Butter Softening Hand Cream – another great hand cream that I’d be happy to buy again.

16 L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Repairing Cica-Masque – this is actually a really good hair mask but the fragrance started to annoy me half-way through the tub, so I won’t be repurchasing this product any time soon.

17 Boots Extracts Rosehip Body Butter – OMG, I love this body butter! The Extracts line has been discontinued, but I have a few more tubs.

And this is everything I managed to finish in April. Not bad! Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to let me know via the comments. And thanks for reading!
