Primark PS… Retinol Fusing Facial Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I bought and tried just recently – it’s this Primark PS… Retinol Fusing Sheet Mask.

With this product, the actual sheet mask and the essence are separated. So you have to turn the sachet upside down and give it a good squeeze for the essence to reach the sheet mask. Once the mask has absorbed the essence, you can use it (just leave it on for 15-20 minutes, don’t rinse).

This mask promises to make skin appear smoother. Whilst the mask felt nice and relaxing, I don’t think it did anything to my face. When I removed the mask, I found that it left my face feeling a little sticky. It wasn’t too bad. However, I would have preferred not to have a sticky face.

All in all, I liked the novelty-effect of a fusing mask, but since it didn’t give me any results, I won’t buy it again.

If you’re interested, Primark PS… Retinol Fusing Sheet Mask is available as 20g for £2. I paid 50p (clearance).

Haul! New Stuff I bought since Boxing Day! 👀

Hi there! Today’s post is about most of the stuff I bought since Boxing Day. There is one gift set I have no photo of because it’s already been packed up for the house move. The gift set is a Thierry Mugler Aura fragrance set (plus mini shower gel and mini body lotion). OK, now let’s look at the goodies I was able to take photos of!

I bought plenty of face masks. Primark had a number of heavily discounted face masks (some £1, some 50p), and I bought over 20. I also picked up 3 Yes To face masks for a total of £2 (reduced to clear for £1 each and a 3 for 2 offer on top at Boots). I also found Simple face masks at Poundland, Boots and B&M Bargains. They normally retail for £2.99 each, but most of them were £1, some £1.49.

A set of mini nail files from Superdrug. The set was 10p (clearance). Bioré Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar for £1.99 at Home Bargains!

A set of 4 Charcoal Self-Heating One Minute Masks from Bioré£1.99 at Home Bargains. And a set of 3 fruity face masks from Superdrug for £1.49 (I bought 2 sets).

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish – 3 tubes for 60p each (clearance). A set of nail files – these were 50p at Poundland (clearance bin). I use glass nail files at home, but I always carry one of those cheapo files in my handbag.

Sanctuary Spa face mask set£2.99 at Superdrug. I bought 2 sets! I have no idea if these are any good, but I thought I might give one of these sets to a friend.

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth shower gels. I found these at Poundland – 400ml each for £1 each. I’m looking forward to using these cute shower gels! 😍

And this is most of what I bought since Boxing Day. I did buy 5 nail polishes (all Revlon, £1 each at Poundland), but these have been packed up for the move as well.

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Prep & Perfect Matte Priming Peel Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Prep & Perfect Matte Firming Peel Off Mask which contains charcoal powder as well as a number of botanical extracts (hollyhock, bergamot, etc). This face mask promises to draw out impurities, to remove oil and to refine pores.

You’re supposed to apply the mask to cleansed skin, leave it on for about 15 minutes (or until it’s dry), then peel it off, wash your face… and you’re good to go! Read on if you’d like to know if this mask is any good…

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s perfectly average. I’m sure the mask removes dead skin cells, but I doubt it does much else. It’s simply not powerful enough. I haven’t seen or felt any difference, and I won’t repurchase this mask.

Primark‘s PS… Prep & Perfect Matte Firming Peel Off Mask is available as a 10ml single-use face mask for 80p. This face mask – just like any other Primark beauty product – is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).

Primark Holler And Glow Gem Fest Moisturising Printed Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s Holler And Glow Gem Fest Moisturising Printed Sheet Mask. This face mask contains coconut fruit extract, sodium hyaluronate, panthenol, witch hazel and other botanical extracts. It promises to hydrate skin deeply.
The instructions show that you’re supposed to cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. And that’s pretty much it.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. I found the mask to be deeply hydrating – without being sticky. So yeah, I’m happy to report that the mask did what it promised to do! Based on my experience, I’d recommend it!

Primark‘s Holler And Glow Gem Fest Moisturising Printed Sheet Mask is available as a 22ml single use face mask for £3. I paid £1 (special offer).

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Plumping Sheet Mask

Hi there! I’ve got a skin care review for you today, and it’s about Primark’s PS… Plumping Sheet Mask with vitamin E, panthenol, papaya fruit extract, anise extract and witch hazel. The mask promises to nourish and to plump up skin. And the actual sheet mask itself is bio-degradable – awesome stuff!

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

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! It feels deeply hydrating, and I would agree that it has a plumping effect. When I took the mask off, my face was glowing! I will buy this mask again, and I would recommend it.

Primark’s PS… Plumping Sheet Mask with vitamin E is cruelty-free. It’s Leaping Bunny certified – like all of Primark’s own brand beauty products. And it’s 80p!

Primark PS… Brightening Peel-Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS Brightening Peel-Off Mask with pomegranate fruit extract and vitamin E. The instructions state that you should… apply the mask to your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, peel it off, then wash your face – and you’re good to go.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I don’t think that it has any brightening effect at all. I found the mask a bit more difficult to peel off, so I’m satisfied that it does remove dead skin cells. Still, I won’t repurchase this mask because there are much more effective peel-off masks out there, like Beauty Formulas’ amazing cleanser and mask duo or Maxbrands’ sensational gold mask.

Anyhoo… if you’re interested, Primark‘s PS Brightening Peel-Off Mask is available as 10ml for 80p.

Primark PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel-Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel Off Mask which contains cucumber, jasmine and ginseng root extracts.

This mask promises to free pores from dirt and to lift off dead skin cells. All you have to do: Apply the mask to your face, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then peel it off. After that, simply wash your face, and you’re good to go. ☺️

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good! I like the fresh cucumber scent, and I’m happy with its first rate cleansing powers. This a very effective peel off mask! Montagne Jeunesse should take note because this is what their cucumber peel off mask should be like!

PS… Deep Cleansing Cucumber Peel Off Mask is available as 10ml (single use) for 80p (Primark).

Primark PS… Cleansing & Polishing Scrub Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Cleansing & Polishing Scrub Mask with charcoal and black sugar. This mask promises effective exfoliation as well as a deep cleanse. How does it work? Apply the mask to your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with water.

I’ve given this mask a try, and whilst it’s not an actual mask, I liked the exfoliating effect. This product is essentially a sugar scrub for the face. It feels effective but not too harsh, and it doesn’t have that disgusting oily residue that sugar scrubs for the body come with. Yay! If they bottled this stuff and called it “sugar face scrub”, I’d buy it and consider it a beauty staple!

Primark’s PS… Cleansing & Polishing Scrub Mask is available as 15ml single use sachet for 80p (Primark).

Primark PS… Brightening Foaming Bubble Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I tried not too long ago – Primark‘s PS… Brightening Foaming Bubble Mask.

This face mask promises to cleanse and to brighten skin. Primark recommends the mask be used weekly.

How does it work? Apply the mask to your face and relax for 15 minutes whilst the mask bubbles up.

Is it any good? I don’t think this mask is anything special. My skin didn’t look or feel different. And I didn’t notice any other difference to my skin at all. But I had a similar mask from Primark before, so I already knew not to expect too much.

What’s good? To be fair, this mask smells very nice (it smells of peach and tea), and I think it’s great fun to use.

If you’d like to give it a try, Primark‘s PS… Brightening Foaming Bubble Mask is available as 10ml for 80p.

Primark PS… Purifying Rinse Off Mask With Red Clay

Hi there! Not too long I tried Primark’s PS… Purifying Rinse Off Mask with Red Clay. This is a regular clay mask that you’re supposed to leave on for at least 10 minutes before you rinse it off. Whilst this mask promises to give skin a deep cleanse, it also contains sweet almond oil and vitamin E which are beneficial for the skin. This sounds great!

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s one of Primark’s best face masks. The mask didn’t make my skin feel tight or umcomrtable whilst it was drying. When I washed it off, I was happy to see that my skin looked clean and clear and that my pores appeared smaller. And whilst my skin felt squeaky clean, it didn’t feel dry.

All in all, this is a great little face mask that I’m happy to buy again. Primark’s PS… Purifying Rinse Off Mask with Red Clay is available as 15ml for 80p.
