Primark PS… Charcoal. Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Charcoal Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask. This mask promises to draw out excess oil and impurities for cleansed pores and purified skin.

The essence contains orange and lemon fruit extracts, another few botanical extracts and charcoal powder. This mask is supposed to be left on for 10-15 minutes, and you should wash your face after use.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really powerful! I could feel the cleansing effect within seconds of placing the mask on my face. It was lovely! I was also happy when I saw that the mask left my pores looking smaller, and that it made my skin look a bit brighter. I think this is a great bubble sheet mask, and I will buy it again, no doubt!

Primark‘s PS… Charcoal Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask is available as a 20g single-use face mask for £1.50.

Maxbrands Sence Beauty Blackhead Peel-Off Facial Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Maxbrands Sence Beauty Blackhead Peel-Off Facial Mask with charcoal extract. This mask promises to cleanse pores and to exfoliate skin.

This mask also comes with a warning – this is powerful stuff, and it should only be used as directed. So use it on your forehead, nose and chin area. If you notice any issues with the mask, wash it off immediately!

I knew what to expect with this product because I’ve previously tried its sister product. So when I tried this mask, it there were no surprises. Don’t be alarmed, this mask didn’t cause me any physical harm. However, this mask is super powerful. It pulls out impurities (Say goodbye to the black spots on your nose!) because it really clings to the skin. It also pulls out facial hair, so if you’re sensitive, you should shave your face before you use this mask. Otherwise it will rip out all of your peach fuzz!

All in all, this mask is simply amazing. I’d recommend it to everyone with skin impurities (assuming you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients). Just make sure you read the warning that comes with the product and follow the instructions, OK?

Maxbrands Sence Beauty Blackhead Peel-Off Facial Mask is available as a pack of 5 for 99p (Home Bargains, Poundstretcher). This is a total bargain!

This face mask promises to cleanse and to detoxify skin. Using the mask is easy – apply it to your face, let it dry (which takes around 20 minutes), then peel it off.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. It’s definitely one of Montagne Jeunesse’s more effective peel off masks.

What else is great? This mask is 100% vegan & certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). Yay!

Bioré Charcoal Whipped Purifying Detox Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Bioré Charcoal Whipped Purifying Detox Mask. This is a cooling mask that promises to purify the skin. You’re supposed to leave this mask on for 5 minutes – then wash it off with warm water. I’ve given this mask a try, and here’s what I think…

I think this mask is sensational! I didn’t care for the cooling effect, but this mask is amazing in every other way. First of all, the mask didn’t dry which made it easy to rinse it off. The mask made my pores appear much, much smaller, it made my skin look matte and clear, and it didn’t cause any redness or dry patches. This is great!

Before I used the mask I had a few minor impurities and 2 red spots – by the time I had washed the mask off, one of the red spots had shrunk to a tiny little pink dot and the other one had disappeared along with all the minor impurities. Wow! WOW!

The best thing is that one sachet provided enough product for me and for my husband. So we got 2 face masks for the price of 1! If you’re interested, Bioré Charcoal Whipped Purifying Detox Mask is available as 15ml. I paid £1 (Savers).

Rata & Co. Activated Charcoal & Natural Clays Sheet Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Rata & Co. Activated Charcoal & Natural Clays Sheet Face Mask. This face mask promises to… cleanse, purify, calm, replenish and condition the skin. It contains coconut charcoal, shea butter, collagen and clay.

You’re supposed to cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10 minutes, then take it off and wash your face again… and you’re good to go.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s alright. It feels cleansing for sure, but I don’t think that it “conditions” the skin. I’ve used 3 of these masks, and I’ve noticed that they leave my skin feeling dry. It’s nothing that a bit of moisturiser can’t fix, but it’s disappointing when a product does the opposite of what it claims to do. I’ll use the remaining 2 masks from the pack, but I won’t repurchase them.

Rata & Co. Activated Charcoal & Natural Clays Sheet Face Masks are available in packs of 5 masks. I paid £3 (TK Maxx).

XBC Black Tissue Charcoal Detox Facial Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this XBC Black Tissue Charcoal Detox Facial Mask with hyaluronic acid and, you guessed it, charcoal. This face mask promises to fight blemishes and to purify and revitalise the skin.

The instructions on the back of the sachet state that you should cleanse your skin, then place the mask on your face, leave it on for 20 minutes, rinse, pat dry – and you’re good to go.

I’ve used this mask, and whilst I didn’t love it, I did like it. I found this mask to be cooling, refreshing and cleansing. It made my face look clean and clear. I don’t think it had a moisturising effect, but I didn’t expect this anyway because this mask is supposed to be rinsed off after use.

XBC Black Tissue Charcoal Detox Facial Mask is available as a 28ml single use sheet mask. I paid 99p (B&M Bargains).

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.
