February Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for my Monthly Favourites post – a.k.a. Mrs Strawberry Blonde’s February Beauty Awards. As always, I’ve picked my top 3 from all the products I’ve reviewed this month. And, of course, there are a few honourable mentions as well. 🙂

3rd place – The Crème Shop Rose Oil Depuffing & Anti-Inflammatory Overnight Gel Mask

I’m very impressed with The Crème Shop’s Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask. This product makes my skin look great, and it’s also fun to use. Recommended!

Runner-Up – The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer And Clear “Naughty” Clarifying Face Mask

This Clarifying Face Mask from The Crème Shop is simply amazing. It reduces redness significantly, it calms down angry skin, it shrinks pores, and it’s deeply hydrating. What’s not to love?!

WINNER – Boots Botanics All Bright Gentle Cleansing Cream & Cleansing Toner

Boots did a fantastic job with these All Bright facial cleansing products. I saw a huge difference after 2 weeks of using the cleanser and the toner. These products are outstanding. 11 stars!

Onto the honourable mentions! I loved The Crème Shop’s Last Christmas “Nice” Forever Young Face Mask and Primark’s PS… Deep Cleansing Bubble Mask With Blueberry.

But I was also impressed with a couple of body care items. Baylis & Harding’s Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry products (especially the body butter) are really lovely, Superdrug’s Cherry & Macadamia Body Scrub is fantastic, and Treacle Moon’s Happy Melon Sorbet is one of the best shower gels I’ve ever used. It’s… wow!

Which products have you been loving lately? Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try any of them? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer And Clear “Naughty” Clarifying Face Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing The Crème Shop‘s Holiday Cheer And Clear “Naughty” Clarifying Face Mask. This mask is like any other normal sheet mask – place it on your face, leave it on for around 20 minutes (I always leave sheet masks on until they’re dry), and massage the excess serum into your skin (I always pop a compressed sheet mask into the sachet with the leftover serum, this way I get to enjoy another sheet mask the next day).

This face mask is aimed at women who… sleep with their makeup on, who pick at pimples or who eat too much chocolate (that’s what it says on the box). Whilst I don’t go to sleep with makeup on, and whilst I think that there’s no such thing as too much chocolate, I am guilty of picking at my skin. So I tried this mask, and here’s what I think.

Before I used the mask, I wasn’t sure whether it would do much because it appeared to be a little random. However, I am glad I used the mask because it’s actually very nice! It calmed and soothed my skin – which I was in desperate need of that day. It reduced the redness around my chin, it seemed to (temporarily) shrink my pores, and it was very hydrating. So yeah, this is a great mask that helps with a number of skin issues. I am glad I have two more of these masks!

The Crème Shop‘s Holiday Cheer And Clear “Naughty” Clarifying 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).
