The Crème Shop Maca Root Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this The Crème Shop Maca Root Face Mask. On the back of the sachet it reads that maca root is a skin super food that’s rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids. And the mask claims to promote revitalised skin and more skin strength, energy and glow.

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

I think this is a great little face mask. It feels deeply hydrating without being greasy or sticky, it has a subtle soapy fragrance, and it feels refreshing and energising. I would also agree that this mask has a plumping effect and that it makes my skin look a little glowy. Based on my experience, I would recommend this face mask!

The Crème Shop Maca Root Face Mask is available as a pack of 5 face masks. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Pumpkin Spice Fusion Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this The Crème Shop Pumpkin Spice Fusion Sheet Mask with pumpkin and cinnamon. According to The Crème Shop, pumpkin enzymes help boost skin cell renewal to reveal a rejuvenated and brighter complexion, and cinnamon absorbs excess sebum.

This is a sheet mask which is supposed to be left on for 15-20 minutes. I always leave sheet masks on until they’re dry to make the most of the product. 😎

I’ve now used 3 of these masks already, and I think they’re fantastic. I would agree that these masks make my skin look brighter, clearer and more refreshed. At the same time I’ve also noticed a calming and smoothing (!) effect. I’m enjoying these masks very much, and I would recommend them.

If you’re looking for a product that has a calming effect on moody skin, or if you want a product that gives you a brighter and fresher complexion, these sheet masks are for you! The Crème Shop Pumpkin Spice Fusion Sheet Mask is available as a pack of 5 masks. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Last Christmas “Naughty” Energy Boost Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Last Christmas “Naughty” Energy Boost Face Mask which is aimed at people who skimp on sleep, forget about SPF and rub and scrub their skin. This face mask promises to invigorate skin and to improve skin resilience and suppleness.

This mask works like almost any other sheet mask – place it on your cleansed face, leave it alone for 15 minutes (I leave sheet masks on until they’re dry), then massage the remaining essence into your skin. I’ve given this mask a try, and here’s what I think.

I think this mask is fantastic. It feels hydrating without being greasy, it feels refreshing without any dodgy cooling effect, and it appeared to plump up my skin. So yeah, it delivered on its promise! A look at the back of the mask reveals that it’s bursting with botanical extracts – which is impressive!

I like this mask a lot, and I’m glad I dug it up from the clearance section! The Crème Shop’s Last Christmas “Naughty” Energy Boost Face Mask is available as part of a set containing 3 Naughty and 3 Nice face masks – that’s 6 masks in total. I paid £5.99 for the set (TK Maxx Clearance).

The Crème Shop Last Christmas “Nice” Forever Young Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Last Christmas “Nice” Forever Young Face Mask. This face mask promises to smooth out wrinkles, to restore skin vitality, and to repair worn skin. It contains sodium hyaluronate (which is listed as the 4th ingredient) and a number of botanical extracts.

I think this is a great mask! It feels deeply hydrating, and I am happy to confirm that it reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I guess that’s because of the hydration boost! Whatever it is, I am impressed! Another great thing is that the mask smells like baby powder which is just lovely! 😊

I would definitely recommend this face mask! The Crème Shop‘s Last Christmas “Nice” Forever Young Face Mask is available as part of The Crème Shop’s Last Christmas face mask set (3 Naughty and 3 Nice face masks). I paid £5.99 for the set (TK Maxx, clearance).

The Crème Shop Turmeric Face Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing The Crème Shop‘s Turmeric Face Mask. This sheet mask promises to help correct skin discolouration, to soothe acne, eczema and dry skin, as well as to combat wrinkles and age spots.

Using the mask is easy – just place it on your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the excess serum into your skin. I always leave sheet masks on until they’re dry. And then I pop a compressed sheet mask into the sachet with the excess serum – this way I can enjoy a second sheet mask the next day!

This sheet mask is simply unbelievable. It really helps with discolourations. Using this mask on 2 consecutive days has not only brightened my skin tone, it also completely eradicated the remains of the dark patches that started to form on my face last summer. I’ve also noticed that my skin looks calmer and considerably less moody. In summary, these masks are some of the best I’ve ever used. If you come across them, you should pick them up. You won’t regret it!

The Crème Shop‘s Turmeric Face Mask is available as a set of 5 sheet masks. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Empties – October 2018

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied last month. As always, I used a number of single use face masks. Whilst I don’t keep the empty sachets, you can read about my latest face mask finds here. Onto the big empties!

1 Olay Anti-Wrinkle 2 in 1 Instant Hydration + Radiant Glow – this is a lovely moisturiser. I have a back-up bottle!

2 Essence Black Eyeliner Pencil – my favourite eyeliner pencil! I have several more in my stash and in my rota!

3 Sukin Super Greens Facial Recovery Serum – another great product from Sukin. I can definitely see myself buying this serum again.

4 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Flycolic Tonic – this is one of my new holy grail products!

Nivea Waterlily & Oil Shower Gel – this is a lovely shower gel. My husband used it too, so this is a shared empty. I hope I’ll find it again somewhere.

6 Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Conditioner – the best conditioner ever. It’s been discontinued, but I have an impressive number of back-up bottles (shampoo and conditioner).

7 The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion – I enjoyed using this body lotion while it lasted, but I won’t buy it again.

8 The Crème Shop Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask With Charcoal – whilst I liked using this product, I don’t think I’ll buy it again. When the seasons changed, I noticed that I would need a more hydrating product for 9 months of the year.

9 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – this is my holy grail foundation!

10 My Little Pony Strawberry Lip Balm – a nice lip balm. It’s very hydrating, and it has a fruity taste. I have a few more My Little Pony branded lip balms.

11 Superdrug Lip Balm – a nice vanilla-flavoured lip balm. I have a few more of these.

12 Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel With Grape – this is a truly awesome product. I have 3 more of these with different fragrances (apple, apricot, rice bran).

13 My Little Pony Shower Gel – a nice shower gel. The melon fragrance is lovely. I might repurchase it at some point.

14 Radox Scent Touch Feel Lively Body Wash – I don’t like the fragrance of this one very much. I managed to use it up but I won’t buy it again.

15 Superdrug Cucumber Peel-Off Mask – this is a nice face mask. I enjoyed using it. I have a back-up!

16 Anna Sui Flight Of Fancy – this is a lovely fragrance. I can definitely see myself picking it up again!

I think I’ve done well again this month. I’m happy I managed to finish a lot of skin care products. What did you empty last month? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂
