May Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month. This means that, today, I’m going to tell you which products I loved the most in May. I picked my top 3 from all the products I reviewed this month. And there are a few honourable mentions as well. Let’s start with the top 3!

3rd place – Beauty Formulas Detoxifying Bubble Sheet Mask

This is the most effective bubble sheet mask I’ve ever tried. Priced at £1, this is also one of the cheapest bubble sheet masks out there!

Runner-Up – Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream & Night Cream

Boots did an amazing job with these 2 No 7 products. I enjoyed using the day cream as well as the night cream. And I’m looking forward to using the full sizes!

WINNER – Maxbrands Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask

This face mask has set new standards. This is the most effective peel-off mask I’ve ever used. If you’re using nose strips and you think they’re not good enough, you should give this mask a try!

Onto the honourable mentions! Treacle Moon’s Marshmallow Hearts Shower & Bath Gel is simply amazing. My skin loves Fascy’s Bubble Tina Aqua Mask and The Crème Shop’s Last Christmas “Naughty” Energy Boost Face Mask.

Primark’s PS… Purifying Rinse Off Mask With Red Clay was a nice surprise, and Palmolive‘s Welcome To Madagascar Forest and Welcome To Japanese Garden shower gels are lovely!

Would you like to try any of these products? Or have you tried any of them? Which products did you love the most this month? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Maxbrands Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend! This week I’m going to post about face masks only, so this week is going to be FACE MASK WEEK. ☺️ And today’s post is about Maxbrands’ Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask for normal skin.

Maxbrands is a brand from the Netherlands. I’ve never seen their products anywhere in the UK – until I found their face masks (gold masks and charcoal masks) at my local Home Bargains store. Since a pack of 5 masks was 99p only, I picked up 2 packs right away.

This gold mask promises to give skin a deep cleanse and to remove blackheads. I’ve now used 2 of these masks, and I think they’re the most powerful peel-off masks ever. But let’s start from the beginning…

First of all, if you use peel-off masks a lot, you’re probably used to them being runny. However, these gold masks are much thicker, almost paste-like. These masks don’t take long to dry. I think that leaving them on for 15 minutes is more than enough. Now, when you remove the mask, you have to be extra careful – because it removes blackheads AND facial hair.

If I had known how powerful this mask is before I’d used it, I would have shaved my face. I’m serious! Trust me, you have no idea how much peach fuzz you have until those teeny tiny strands of baby hair are pulled out. My face was bright red for about an hour after I removed the mask, but that was from the unexpected and unwanted peach fuzz removal; this was not an allergic reaction.

Having mentioned this, this mask is actually one of my new favourite products. It made my pores squeaky clean, and it completely transformed my husband’s nose after a single use. My husband enjoys an occasional face mask, but his nose has always been a problem (nose strips didn’t help – we tried). Now I don’t want to spoil your dinner, so all I’m going to say is that once my husband peeled the mask off of his nose, he was actually ashamed of how much gunk it caught. It wasn’t pretty, but again, a single use of this mask completely transformed his nose.

Based on my experience, I would recommend this face mask to anyone who’s fighting a losing battle against their blackheads. Just be aware that you might want to consider shaving your face before you use this mask. I will continue to use this mask on a regular basis, and I have already stocked up on this amazing little product!

Maxbrands’ Luxurious Gold Mask / Peel-Off Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks I paid 99p (Home Bargains).

I’m happy with what I’ve bought. However, I’m disappointed Yves Rocher will cease trading in the UK 14 days before Brexshit becomes effective. I understand Yves Rocher’s decision, and I don’t blame them at all. But it’s still sad. 😦
