Maxbrands My Skin Facial Sheet Mask “Kitty Face”

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I tried just recently – Maxbrands My Skin Facial Sheet Mask “Kitty Face”. This sheet mask promises to give pores a deep cleanse and to remove oils and dirt.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s alright. I would agree that it has a cleansing effect, but I found the mask to be a little sticky. This isn’t a big issue since you’re supposed to wash your face after you’ve used the mask, but I thought I’d mention it in case you DO mind sticky skin care.

Maxbrands My Skin Facial Sheet Mask “Kitty Face” is available as a 25ml single use mask. I paid 50p (independent bargain store)

Maxbrands Alpaca Face Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask that I found at my local Home Bargains store – Maxbrands Alpaca Face Sheet Mask. This face mask contains cucumber extract, and it promises to help improve skin’s elasticity and to boost the skin.

This is a normal sheet mask – you place it onto your cleansed face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then bin the mask, and massage the leftover essence from the sachet into your face. Job done! Read on if you’d like to know if this mask is any good. 🙂

Whilst I’m still not sure what boosting the skin is supposed to mean, I’m satisfied that this mask feels deeply hydrating without being sticky. This mask also seems to plump up my skin – I guess this is what boosting the skin might refer to…

Having said this, I think this mask could smell nicer. Parfum is listed as the last ingredient on the list, so there can’t be much fragrance in it. However, some people prefer products with little or no added fragrance, so if this is what you like, this mask might be worth a try.

Maxbrands Alpaca Face Sheet Mask is available as 25ml. I paid 79p (Home Bargains).

Have you tried this mask or would you like to try it? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

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).
