April Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month. This means that I’ve now chosen my favourite products of the month. I’m not doing a big intro today, so let’s start with the TOP 3, and then we move on to the honourable mentions.

3rd place – Valjean Labs Glow Vitamin C + Magnesium Face Mask

Whilst Valjean Labs’ Hydrate mask didn’t impress me, their Glow face mask is simply amazing.

Runner-Up – Skin Treat Unicorn Hydrating Sheet Mask

This face mask is not only the cutest sheet mask ever, it’s also very effective. And it’s £1 only at B&M Bargains!

WINNER – Boots No 7 Skin Care Products

Boots did a great job with these No 7 products. And the lip care turned out to be the unexpected star of the collection!

Onto the honourable mentions! Garnier’s Body Repair Anti-Dryness Restoring Lotion For Extra Dry Skin almost came in third (it was very close). Original Source did a great job with their Passionfruit And Jojoba Milk Shower Milk and their Orange Shower Gel. And I’ve been very happy with the cheap Hair Repair Rejuvenating Shampoo & Conditioner from Poundland!

Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Skin Treats Unicorn Hydrating Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a sheet mask that’s exclusive to B&M Bargains – Skin Treats Unicorn Hydrating Sheet Mask. My local B&M store stocks a number of different new sheet masks for £1 each, and I picked up quite a few!

This face masks promises to hydrate skin. It works like pretty much any other regular sheet mask out there. Once you’ve cleansed your face, place the sheet mask on your face, leave it on for about 15 minutes (I always leave sheet masks on until they’re dry), then take it off and massage the remaining essence into your skin.

This face mask contains a few ingredients that (I think) I’ve never heard of before, so I looked them up! Hydrolised sclerotium gum is a moisturising and soothing agent that protects the skin. Corn gluten amino acids have moisturising, smoothing (!) and relaxing properties. And when I looked into mozuku extract, I found out that mozuku is a type of edible seaweed which is also sold as a health supplement.

Onto the mask – isn’t it cute? I think this is the cutest sheet mask ever. It fits my face quite well, and it looks sensationally cute on! Those eyebrows, those nostrils, that horn – squeeee!!! 🦄😍

And what about the actual mask? I think this face mask is pretty awesome. The essence isn’t too runny, and most of it is actually in the mask and won’t get left behind in the sachet. I found this mask to be deeply hydrating and smoothing. Yes, my skin looked smoother than usual. The essence is a little sticky, but it’s not too noticeable unless you keep touching your face.

I would recommend Skin Treats Unicorn Hydrating Sheet Mask to anyone who likes sheet masks which are not just cute but also effective. I’ve already bought 5 more of these sheet masks on my last trip to B&M.
