Apivita Moisturising Face Mask with Sea Lavender

Mask Monday: Apivita Moisturising Face Mask with Sea Lavender

It's been absolutely ages since I did a Mask Monday post, even though I'm still using masks a lot, particularly any that offer hydration as my skin is still adjusting to a higher retinol percentage and it is very dry and flaky.  To me, the mark of a good moisturising mask is one that feels rich on the skin but doesn't absorb too quickly, as otherwise you might as well just apply a thick layer of moisturiser - I want a mask to sit on the skin, pro[...]

Lozano Skincare SkinTea Active Renewal Masque

Mask Monday: Lozano Skincare SkinTea Active Renewal Masque

Disclaimer: PR Sample  - I have not been paid for this feature.  If you're a regular reader then you'll know that I'm a die-hard retinol convert; I think it's one of the most skin-transforming ingredients out there and I use it religiously.  However, when you use a good quality retinol, it's quite hard to slot a good chemical exfoliation in anywhere (mainly because retinol does such a good job at keeping skin renewed) and I've made no effort to ke[...]

No7 Laboratories Cica-Rescue Skin Paste

Mask Monday: No7 Laboratories Cica-Rescue Skin Paste

Disclaimer:  Product paid for by me, Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature. I briefly shared my thoughts on the No7 Laboratories Cica-Rescue Skin Paste in my feature on Cica skincare here, but I wanted to give this a full review as it really is a fantastic product that deserves it's own post.  The No7 Laboratories Cica-Rescue Skin Paste is a really interesting product that's unusual to find on the high street and certainly isn't[...]

L'Occitane Aqua Reotier Mineral Moisture Mask

Mask Monday: L’Occitane Aqua Reotier Mineral Moisture Mask

It's been a while since I posted a new Mask Monday, as I've mostly been working my way through some existing favourites, such as the I'm From Mugwort Mask or the Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Mask, but when I returned from my holiday I found I needed something gentle yet highly moisturising, so I decided to give the L'Occitane Aqua Reotier Mineral Moisture Mask a go, which is a mineral-rich hydrating mask suitable for all skin types, tha[...]

Ecooking Peeling Mask

Mask Monday: Ecooking Peeling Mask

*PR Sample/Aff. Links* If this is anything other than your first time visiting my blog, you'll probably know that I'm a bit of a mask fan and I always believe that one of the best mask treatments you can add to your routine is an acid mask, as they do so much in so little time, that even the beauty-weary would be able to find a couple of minutes to indulge.  I have my firm favourites when it comes to acid masks as I like one that'll do all the[...]

Mask Monday: Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque

*PR Sample/Aff. links* A while ago, I posted my reviews of the two other Image Skincare masques - the Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque here and the Ormedic Balancing Gel Masque here.  I have one final Image masque to tell you about, and I've definitely saved the best until last.  The Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque is a beautiful treat for the skin that does a little bit of everything, providing a light exfoliation, a hydrating tre[...]

Mask Monday: Elemis Superfood Berry Boost Mask

*PR Sample/Gifted* Even though the Elemis Superfood Berry Boost Mask is probably the least suited product to my skin in the new Superfood extension line, it's the one I think I'm generally most excited about for everyone else, as it's such a wonderfully designed and formulated product for tricky skin - gone are the days when it's all about stripping the skin until it's bare, and instead we have lovely, kind, caring skincare that feels and smells g[...]

Mask Monday: Elemis Superfood Vital Veggies Mask

*PR Sample/Gifted/Affiliate links* As promised in my previous post (my introduction to the newest members of the Elemis Superfood family here) I wanted to share a full review of the new Elemis Superfood Vital Veggies Mask as I think it's the mask that's most relevant to my skin type, especially at the moment, where my skin is relatively blemish-free and balanced, so instead of seeking problem-solving treatment masks, I'm preferring things that'll b[...]

Mask Monday: Image Skincare Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque

*AD - Gifted Sample* This Mask Monday brings you another Image masque in the form of the Image Skincare Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque, which is an exfoliating mask that makes uses of both chemical and physical exfoliators.  It's designed to brighten skin by lifting dead skin cells, leaving skin smooth and glowing.  The physical exfoliators are micro-crystals, whilst the chemicals are Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid, so a great t[...]

Mask Monday: Image Skincare Ormedic Balancing Gel Masque

Image Skincare are one of those brands that I've heard lots about but never got around to trying, so it makes sense that my first real experience of the range would start with some of their amazing masques.  I was sent three masks to try, but the Image Skincare Ormedic Balancing Gel Masque is the one I jumped on straight away as I'm going really hard at the retinols at the moment (with a mostly positive result - more on that in another post soon)[...]

Mask Monday: Temple Spa The Big Reveal

Temple Spa are a really interesting brand that kind of sit under the radar, but those who are familiar tend to have a few favourites that they rave about - I've been a long-term lover of their amazing In The Beginning cleanser (a joy to use in ever sense) and, during a big clear out over the weekend, I came across an unopened bottle of their The Big Reveal, which is an exfoliating Gommage mask, designed to brighten, smooth and soften dull skin, su[...]
