Mask Monday: B. Clay Face Mask Pods

B. are a brand with a solid reputation for supplying decent, no-frills (but very effective) skincare and make-up that comfortably rivals any similarly priced high street brands.  They've recently launched a range of clay face masks which are available in either pots of 50ml of product, or dinky little pods for those who want to dip their toe in or find a great product for travelling. There are four varieties of the B. Clay Masks: B. Detoxe[...]

Mask Monday: Superdrug Charcoal, Avocado & Oat and Blueberry Jam

I had my eye on these pot masks the minute I saw them launch, as there was just something so appealing about the presentation of a product in a food-like pot with food-themed ingredients.  The newest pot masks from Superdrug come in five 'flavours': Coconut, Kale, Blueberry Jam, Avocado & Oat and Charcoal; the latter three I'm featuring today. All the masks come in pots, which are incredibly cute, but not the most practical, especially[...]

Mask Monday: Tata Harper Clarifying Mask

I've heard such amazing things about Tata Harper that I couldn't wait to get my hands on some of her fabulous skincare (I also have the Purifying Cleanser - more on that in another post) so literally as soon as the products arrived, I got them snapped and ready to use, starting with the mask. The Tata Harper Clarifying Mask is a relatively new addition to the range and is designed to sooth and clear blemishes and redness in a non-drying formula pa[...]

Mask Monday: Murad Pore Extractor Pomegranate Mask

I wasn't actually expecting to like the new Murad Pore Extractor Pomegranate Mask, but I was pleasantly surprised.  The reasons for my uncertainty were mostly based on the fact that I thought this sounded like the sort of product most suited to very oily skin that can take a bit of a pounding from harsh and drying clays, thick exfoliators and formulas designed to suck everything out of your pores.  The two red flags for me were the "pore extrac[...]

Mask Monday: Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask

I had the most amazing facial at the Four Seasons a couple of weeks ago (full review here) courtesy of Omorovicza, which finished with an application of their new Midnight Radiance Mask...and from then on I was hooked.  The Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask is a sleeping mask designed to brighten and smooth skin, so you awake with a complexion that is both hydrated and lightly exfoliated, and it really does deliver on both those promises.  The[...]

Mask Monday: MasqueBar Charcoal Peel-Off Modelling Mask

It's been a little while since I did a Mask Monday post, but I've got two great ones today, starting with this mammoth feature on the new MasqueBar Charcoal Peel-Off Modelling Mask.  There are four of these new types of modelling masks in the range - Collagen, Lavender, Tea Tree and Charcoal - all of which come in single use pots with everything you need within the pot; just add water. I've had a little nose around online to see what othe[...]

Philosophy The Microdelivery Detoxifying Oxygen Peel

The Philosophy The Microdelivery Detoxifying Oxygen Peel is a two-step treatment aimed at tricky, freaked out skin that's suffering from breakouts, dullness, congestion, and pretty much all the frustrating issues that often appear when skin is stressed and unbalanced.  It's designed to address all of these issues, leaving skin feeling smooth and deeply cleansed without causing it any more stress or stripping it of moisture.  Obviously I was all[...]

Mask Monday: Formula 10.0.6 Be Berry Clear Illuminating Peel Mask

It's quite astonishing just how huge the Formula 10.0.6 range actually is, especially when it seems they're adding to it every few weeks! I thought it was pretty vast, but then I came across the American site that stocks far more products from the line, and it really is massive! Formula 10.0.6 Be Berry is a collection of six products (three peel-off masks, two mud masks and one cleanser) with a focus on fruit as the key ingredient.  This means th[...]

Mask Monday: Formula 10.0.06 Three Times Sublime

Urgh! I have already written an upbeat and enthusiastic post about this mask, but a blog glitch lost it so I'm having to start again - so annoying! The Formula 10.0.06 range is a collection of products designed specifically with problem skin in mind.  I've got a few that I'm working through at the moment with a mostly positive experience, but I thought I'd start with something nice and easy to fit into your skincare routine, the Three Times Sub[...]

Mask Monday: Goldfaden Facial Detox Clarify + Clear Mask

I think deep cleansing masks are my favourite as I love the feeling of using a product that's drawing out all the grime and grease to leave skin completely clean.  However, over the past few months I've started treading more carefully with what sort of products I use, avoiding anything too harsh or abrasive and instead trying to use things that are as effective as possible without being too aggressive.  This means I've mostly avoided clays that[...]

Mask Monday: Jamela Chamomile Anti-Inflammatory Face Masks

I have a soft spot for the Jamela brand as they were one of the first brands I developed a working relationship with when I first started blogging, and I remember them being one of the first product ranges that I found really exciting that I doubt I would ever have come across were it not for my blog.  Jamela are probably best known for being the brand behind those gold sheet masks that graced the face of every Instagrammer when sheet masks in g[...]
