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.

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).

The Crème Shop Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask With Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask with Charcoal. The product promises to detox troubled or sensitive skin so that you can wake up with renewed and purified skin – even after a short night.

How does it work? On the back of the box it says… massage an even layer into your skin – right before bedtime. Focus on dry areas, and leave the product to do its magic overnight. And wake up to hydrated and brighter skin.

I really like the idea of an overnight gel mask. However, it’s just a fancy name for a night cream. 😉 Having said that, I love the gel formula! It’s awesome fun! I’m also satisfied that this product moisturises my skin without greasing it up, and that it helps maintain my skin’s brightness. Another thing I need to mention is the soapy fragrance – it’s clean and pleasant. Nice!

All in all, I think this is a nice and fun product, and I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys a good skin care product at a reasonable price. The Crème Shop‘s Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask with Charcoal is available as 50ml for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

The Crème Shop Charcoal Face Mask

HI there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Charcoal Face Mask. This face mask with activated charcoal promises to tighten pores and to combat acne by drawing toxins out of the skin. The product also claims to promote a balanced and flawless complexion.

You’re supposed to leave the mask on for 20 – 30 minutes, or until the mask is dry (which is what I do). Don’t wash it off! Just proceed with your normal skin care routine. 🙂

I’ve already used 2 of these masks, and I think they’re brilliant. They make my pores appear smaller and they really have a skin-balancing effect. I’ve also noticed that these masks soothe my skin, so I love to use them when my skin is moody. These masks really work, and I would recommend them to everyone!

The Crème Shop‘s Charcoal Face Masks are available as packs of 5 for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

100% Awesome – The Crème Shop Charcoal Lemonade Fusion Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop’s Charcoal Lemonade Fusion Sheet Mask. This sheet promises to draw out toxins to make skin appear purified and clear. It also claims to have antibacterial and brightening properties.

How does it work? The instructions state that the mask is supposed to be left on for 20-30 minutes – or until it’s completely dry. Any excess serum should be massaged into the skin (face AND neck).

I always leave sheet masks on until they’re perfectly dry. Sometimes this can take an hour – but that’s OK. Sheet masks are for evenings, weekends and days off! I also don’t ‘waste’ the excess serum that’s left in the sachet. I just pop a compressed sheet mask into the sachet – the new sheet mask will then absorb the excess serum, and I get another sheet mask that’s dripping with serum for free!

So what about the mask? This mask is simply sensational. It gave me incredible results after a single use. The mask made my skin feel deeply cleansed and refreshed. And it made my skin tone look perfectly even and insanely bright. This mask has set new standards because I still cannot believe what a difference it made. 24 hours ago I couldn’t have imagined that my skin could look half as good as it looks now. I am completely over the moon!

I would recommend this mask to anyone who’s looking for a product that brightens skin and evens out skin tone. If you want instant results, this mask is your cheapest and most effective option!

The Crème Shop’s Charcoal Lemonade Fusion Sheet Masks are £4.99 for a pack of 5 masks (TK Maxx). Outstanding value! 11 stars!

Haul! Nail Polish, Skin, Body & Hair Care, Korean Beauty, Sheet Masks, Scinic, Ciaté, L’Oréal, MoYou London, Revlon, Aussie & Many More!

Hi there! Today’s post is about the products I bought in November and December 2017. Well, it’s about most of the products I bought. I forgot to take pictures of a few things before I stashed them away… Anyway, let me show you the products I remembered to photograph. 🙂

1 Cellio It’s True Moisture Skin Pearl (£6) – this is, apparently, a toner. I’m looking forward to trying it.

2 Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Apricot (£4) – this is my 4th product from this brand. I can’t wait to give it a try!

3 Scinic Honey All In One Ampoule (£12.99) – I can’t believe it’s mine! Finally! At the moment I’m using Scinic’s Aqua Ampoule, so this one will have to wait…

4 The Crème Shop – Charcoal & Lemonade Fusion Sheet Masks (£4.99 for a pack of 5 masks) – I’ve already used one of these masks and I’ll post the review in a couple of days.

5 Luxe Beauty Care Charcoal Spa Treatment Mask (£4.99 for a pack of 5 masks) – I bought these because they looked similar to these fantastic masks. I’ll try to test and review these masks asap!

6 Cellio It’s True Moisture Cream (£8) – the awesome packaging lured me in. And I love that this skin care range is called “It’s True”.

7 Cellio It’s True Deep Cleansing & Massage Cream (£6) – this one looks awesome too!

8- 10 Radox Feel Free, Feel Lively & Feel Fresh (£1.48 each, photo deleted by accident) – I’ve never tried these shower gels, and when I spotted them for half price, I thought “why not”. 🙂

11 – 13 Superdrug Face Masks – 99p each with a 3 for 2 offer. 🙂

14 L’Oréal Multi-Masking Play Kit – this was £3.50 for 3 x 10ml which, I think, is good value. In addition, this set gives me the chance to try these L’Oréal masks without having to commit to buying 3 full-sized jars. 🙂

15 + 16 TRESemmé Colour Shampoo & Conditioner – these were £2.69 each (half price offer).

17- 21 MoYou London Stamping Plates (Sci-Fi 4 + 7, Hipster 18, Rebel 6 + 7) – these were between £4.50 and £5.99 with an additional 20% discount. By the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

22 – 25 Aussie Mega Shampoo & Conditioner, Aussie Colour Mate Shampoo & Conditioner – these were £1.95 each (half price offer).

26 Boots Time Delay Wrinkle Reduce Collage Boosting Wrinkle Filler – this was £5 only. Apparently the entire Time Delay collection is getting a makeover, so everything’s on special!

27 + 28 Revlon 050 White On White – I always pick up clear and white polishes from Poundworld and the likes. These were £1 each!

29 Boots Time Delay Deep Cleansing Facial Exfoliator – this was £3 only!

30 Ciaté Mini Mani Month 2017 – this is £50 on Ciaté’s web site, but I got this for £13. The box was a little damaged, and I guess this is why they reduced the price, but all the seals were still intact, so I knew there weren’t any polishes missing. 🙂

How pretty are those polishes?!

This is most of what I bought in November and December. But I’m sure I’ll buy a few more bits and bobs on Boxing Day… Anyway, have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try them? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!
