Boots Plastic Free Fabric Sheet Mask With Added Glycolic Acid

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Plastic Free Fabric Sheet Mask With Added Glycolic Acid. Wash your face, put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes, then pat the leftover essence into your skin. Boots recommends the mask be used 2-3 times a week for best results.

I’ve used one of these masks so far, and I found it excellent. I’m happy to report that it made my skin look brighter and refreshed, and that it left my skin feeling amazing. I will buy this mask again, no doubt, although I don’t think I can commit to using the same mask 2-3 times per week.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend the face mask. Since it contains glycolic acid, make sure you follow the instructions for use and after care, especially when you’ve never used products with glycolic acid before. If you’re interested, Boots Plastic Free Fabric Sheet Mask With Added Glycolic Acid is available as a 16g single-use sheet mask for £1.50. According to Boots, this mask is cruelty-free and suitable for vegans! 😍

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask with raspberry, cranberry and red grape.

I used to like this mask (initially I didn’t cae for it, but it grew on me after a few uses). I haven’t used it in years though (the reason is my ever growing stash of face masks).

When I saw that Superdrug gave their own-brand face mask collection a make-over, I thought it’s time to repurchase a few of the masks I used to like or love.

This peel-off mask is supposed to left on for 10-20 minutes (until it’s dry). It promises to remove dead skin cells and to leave skin with a radiant glow.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s good. I enjoyed the fruity fragrance, and I’m happy to report that the mask left my skin feeling super soft. I will definitely buy this mask again – hopefully it won’t be another couple of years!

If you’re interested, Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask with raspberry, cranberry and red grape is available as a ml single-use mask for 99p. I bought 3 of these masks on a 3 for 2 offer.

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Mitomo Retinol Facial Essence Mask. This mask contains retinol, aloe vera extract and sodium hyaluronate. It’s a leave-on mask. Cleanse your face, then put the mask on. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. Then follow with your normal skin care.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s one of the best face masks I’ve ever used. Ever! It’s the bomb! The mask feels amazing on – it’s refreshing and hydrating, it’s not sticky and it feels just so comfortable! When I took the mask off, I found my skin to be looking amazing – fresh, plump, relaxed. Wow! I didn’t put anything on my skin after the mask, and I’m happy to report that my skin looked and felt amazing the entire day.

Global Beauty Care Collagen Spa Treatment Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Global Beauty Care Collagen Spa Treatment Mask. This sheet mask contains collagen, essential fatty acids, grapefruit extract and sodium hyaluronate. It promises to firm, tone and revive skin elasticity, and it claims to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 15 minutes.

How does it work? Cleanse your face before you put the mask on. Leave it on for 15 minutes – not for longer as it can irritate the skin. Then rinse off any residue.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. It felt great, and I would agree that the mask made my skin look and feel toned, refreshed and revived. I loved the look and feel of my skin after using this mask! Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask.

NSPA Fruit Extracts Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Rich Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about this NSPA Fruit Extracts Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Rich Body Butter which I found at Asda. This body butter contains natural vitamins for healthy skin. I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now, and here’s what I think…

This body butter is lovely! It’s rich and nourishing, but it’s absorbed quickly. This body butter makes my skin feel super soft, and the cherry fragrance is incredibly juicy and natural. I’m enjoying this body butter very much!

NSPA Fruit Extracts Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Rich Body Butter is available as 200ml. NSPA body butters are usually £3, but last week I’ve seen them for £1.50 at Asda.

Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub. This is a single-use scrub, and it was part of one of the Sanctuary Spa Christmas gift sets I bought for half price on Boxing Day. This salt scrub contains Dead Sea salts and a blend of jojoba, coconut and almond oils. It promises to exfoliate and nourish skin in one go.

There are 2 ways to use this scrub. If you use it in the shower, rub the scrub into wet skin. But you can also use it in the bath. In this case, rub it over dry skin, then carefully (!) step into the bath and let the warm water melt away the salts!

I’ve given this scrub a try, and I think it’s excellent. It’s a typical salt scrub – it’s a very effective exfoliant, but it also nourishes the skin. I enjoyed it very much! The fragrance is the typical Sanctuary Spa fragrance. So whilst this scrub contains coconut oil, I’m happy to report that it doesn’t smell of coconut at all.

What else? Of course, this type of products leaves the shower or bath slippery, so please be super careful and get your partner, child, house-mate, etc to clean the shower or bath tub. 😁 Hey, this is a spa treatment. You’re not supposed to clean your own bathroom right after!

If you’re interested, Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub is available as 650g for £14.

Mad Beauty Disney Aurora True Love’s Kiss Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Mad Beauty Disney Aurora True Love’s Kiss Face Mask. This face mask contains niacinamide, pro-vitamin B5, lavender, cucumber and peach extracts, etc. It promises to have a relaxing and calming effect on the skin.

How does it work? Cleanse your face, put on the mask, leave it on for 10 minutes, then wash it off. I prefer leave-on sheet masks, but hey ho…

I’ve been through 6 of the 8 Mad Beauty Disney face masks that I bought, and this is my favourite so far. The mask smells pleasantly of lavender (some of the other masks had a strong chemical smell), and it feels refreshing and certainly relaxing. If it was a leave-on mask, I’d even buy it again!

If you’re interested, Mad Beauty Disney Aurora True Love’s Kiss Face Mask is available as a 25ml single-use face mask for £3 (Superdrug). I paid £1.50 (sale).

Skin Treats Ginger Radiating Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Skin Treats Ginger Radiating Sheet Mask which promises to be a “vibrant facial experience” that rejuvenates and revitalises the skin and improves the skin’s elasticity.

This is a normal sheet mask. Use it after you’ve cleansed your face. Leave the mask on for about 15 minutes, then take it off and massage the leftover essence from the sachet into your skin.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s nice and refreshing. For the first 15 or so seconds, there was a tingling sensation on my skin. Scary! Fortunately, the tingling went away quickly. Phew! I would agree that the mask made my skin feel revitalised, so based on this alone, I’d use the mask again. I also liked that the mask didn’t leave a sticky film on my skin. The fresh ginger scent was very subtle and pleasant. Good stuff!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this face mask. But always make sure to check the ingredients, and if in doubt, please do a patch test! If you’re interested, Skin Treats Ginger Radiating Sheet Mask is available as a 20ml single use sheet mask for £1 (B&M Bargains).

Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel for all skin types.

This face wash promises to cleanse skin deeply without drying it out, and it also claims to achieve brighter looking skin within 14 days.

I started to use this product just under 2 weeks ago, and I think it’s good but not great.

I’m using this face wash with a konjac sponge, and I found that a tiny drop will lather up very well. Great if you don’t want to use a lot of product.

I can’t comment on whether this face wash is indeed brightening. I’ve been using glycolic acid products for a while now, and I’m not expecting a face wash to outperform those products. But if you’re not using any other brightening products, I think this face wash might be good starter product.

I am very happy with how well this face wash cleanses my skin. It leaves my skin feeling and looking clean and refreshed.

At the same time, I’m very happy to confirm that the face wash doesn’t feel drying at all, so it’s definitely suitable for my very dry and moody skin. Well done, Boots!

However, here’s the big but – the scent. The face wash doesn’t smell bad or artificial. But it smells very strongly of yuzu. I’ve used yuzu-scented products for the past few months, and I can’t stand them anymore. I usually love all things citrus, but I’m literally done with yuzu-scented stuff. I might change my mind at some point in the future. And the next person might love how this face wash smells – so this is not the most objective finding. But because of its scent, I won’t repurchase this face wash.

Having said this, I think that, in most aspects, this is a really good face wash, and I’d recommend it (unless you’re not keen on yuzu-scented products either).

Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel is available as 100ml for £4. Mine was free (3 for 2 offer, and this was the freebie I chose on top of the other 2 products I bought that day!).

100% Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Vitamin C Revitalizing Bubble Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Primark PS… Vitamin C Revitalizing Bubble Sheet Mask which I picked up a litte while ago. This sheet mask promises to cleanse and revitalise the skin, and it claims to enhance the skin’s radiance. How does it work? Cleanse your face, put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes, then take it off and wash your face.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s excellent. It’s one of the best bubble masks I’ve ever tried. The bubble effect is very strong – it keeps bubbling for at least 45 minutes (that’s when I decided to, finally, take it off). The mask had an instant brightening effect, my pores looked smaller, and my complexion looked a lot more refreshed.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this sheet mask. I will stock up as soon as Primark reopens. If you’re interested, Primark PS… Vitamin C Revitalizing Bubble Sheet Mask is available as a 20g single-use mask for £1.50. Also, this sheet mask is bio-degradable, and it’s certified cruelty-free – it carries the Leaping Bunny logo! 😍
