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.

Beauty Formulas Detoxifying Bubble Mask With Activated Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Beauty Formulas Detoxifying Bubble Mask With Activated Charcoal which I tried just recently. This is a bubble sheet mask that starts to foam as soon as you open the sachet. So its best to use it pretty much immediately after opening.

This mask promises to cleanse pores deeply and to leave skin feeling refreshed and revitalised. A look at the ingredients on the back of the sachet reveals that this mask is loaded with good stuff like charcoal powder, witch hazel, lemon and pomegranate extracts, and other quality ingredients.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s very good. I could feel that my skin was given a deep cleanse as the bubbles started to form. When I washed my face after I’d removed the mask, it felt perfectly clean, smooth and refreshed. I think my skin looked a bit brighter as well. In addition, this mask was awesome fun to use!

I think this is the best bubble sheet mask I’ve tried so far. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it, and I will stock up! Beauty Formulas Detoxifying Bubble Mask With Activated Charcoal is available as a single-use mask. I paid £1 (B&M Bargains).

The Crème Shop Santa’s List Charcoal Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I picked up at TK Maxx (pack of 5 masks, clearance) – The Crème Shop Santa’s List Charcoal Sheet Mask. This mask promises to detoxify skin by getting rid of impurities, and to refresh and renew skin.

This mask is supposed to be left on for 15-20 minutes, and the leftover essence in the sachet is supposed to be used on the neck and on parts of the face not covered by the mask. I always leave these masks on until they’re dry. And I always pop a compressed sheet mask into the sachet with the leftover essence, so I have another sheet mask for the next day. 🙂

How’s the mask? I think this mask is pretty awesome! It feels refreshing and I’ve noticed that it calms my skin. I’ve been using it on days when my skin was difficult, and it always had a calming and soothing effect. I also love that this mask feels hydrating. Great stuff! Whilst this mask is one of the stickier ones, I don’t mind this at all because it takes great care of my skin.

This mask smells like candy canes. It’s nice, but to be honest, if I had known that it contained peppermint oil, I wouldn’t have bought the pack. I know I should have checked the ingredients first! However, I’m happy to confirm that the mask did great things only for me. And the peppermint oil is probably the reason the mask feels so refreshing.

The Crème Shop Santa’s List Charcoal Sheet Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks. I paid £4.99.

Bling Pop Soothing Face Mask With Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is about Bling Pop‘s Soothing Face Mask With Charcoal. This face mask promises to moisturise and to soothe skin. This mask works like any other regular sheet mask – place it on your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the excess into your skin. I always leave these masks on until they’re dry. I just can’t bin a sheet mask that’s still dripping with serum. I hate being wasteful.

How’s the mask? I think it’s pretty awesome! It feels deeply hydrating and it has a soothing effect. I’ve used a few of these masks already, and they helped turn angry skin into calm and happy skin in no time. I’ve also noticed that my skin tone looks brighter and more even every time I use one of these masks. In summary, if you see these masks at your local TK Maxx (or wherever), you really should pick them up!

Bling Pop‘s Soothing Face Mask With Charcoal is available as a pack of 10 sheet masks for £5.99 (TK Maxx). What an incredible bargain!

Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Mask which I picked up at TK Maxx. This face mask promises to hydrate and renew delicate skin and to control oil for a natural glow. In addition to charcoal, this mask contains hyaluronic acid, botanical extracts and oils.

Is this sheet mask any good? I think it’s alright, but that’s about it. I don’t think it helps with oil control at all, but it hydrates my skin nicely for about half a day. If you’re looking for an effective, purifying sheet mask with charcoal, try Boots’ own brand mask or try The Crème Shop’s sheet mask.

Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Masks are available as packs of 5 masks for £4.99 (TK Maxx).
