Mask Monday: QMS Medicosmetics Hydro Foam Mask

If you've ever wondered how it would feel to take a can of spray cream, rub it all over your face and use it as a mask, I have the answer! The QMS Medicosmetics Hydro Foam Mask is a treatment that's basically a thick cream that you apply and leave to intensely hydrate your skin - it is a godsend in the weather we're currently having as my skin is really struggling with the sudden drop in temperature and I find that it's times like these where you[...]

Mask Monday: Timeless Truth Glacial Snow Algae Bio Cellulose Mask

I am really struggling with dry skin at the mo, and I'm layering up all the products to try and reduce that horrid, tight feeling that comes with parched skin.  Consequently, I've been reaching for sheet masks a lot more frequently and I'm so pleased I decided to give the Timeless Truth Glacial Snow Algae Bio Cellulose Mask a go, as it's easily one of the best ones I've tried for drastically improving hydration levels. As you can see in t[...]

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: ESPA Essential Cleansing Mask

I'm familiar with ESPA but I don't think I've ever tried any of their products.  All I know of them is that they're a luxury spa brand - a bit like Elemis, but whereas Elemis is more results driven with elements of spa-ness (it's a word...probably) I'd say ESPA are more focused on providing products that are sensory and encourage relaxation, whilst also providing results, but as a secondary focus.  Of course this is all based on my initial impre[...]

Mask Monday: Nugg Intensive Skin Treatment Sets

How absolutely gorgeous are these mask sets from Nugg? Designed to provide relief from common skin complaints, these are sets of four masks that compliment each other to work as an intensive treatment program to reset your skin - as an avid believer in multi-masking (doing one after the other though, rather than all at the same time, as is currently popular!) I love the concept of these sets and I think they've been executed in a really effective[...]


Mask Monday: MasqueBar Anti-Wrinkle Sheet Mask

  I've got really into sheet masks lately as I find them to be a really effective way of hydrating skin without flooding it.  Using a chemical exfoliator and following it with a sheet mask worked into the skin with my YOSO Pro device (review here) makes for a quick, easy and highly effective facial treat. Consequently, I've been raiding my mask stash to see what other sheet masks I have to try, and I came across the MasqueBar Anti-Wrinkle She[...]


Mask Monday: Argan+ Lift & Renew Clay Mask

My mum is crazy for the Argan+ Body Butter and I really loved their Rose body wash too, so I couldn't wait to try this mask from Argan+, the Lift & Renew Clay Mask, which promises a bevvy of benefits such as intense moisturising, elasticity boosting and deep cleansing.  The ingredients list is impressive with six different oils alongside shea butter, green clay and kaolin.  It's a typical clay-style mask in that you apply it, leave it to dr[...]

Mask Monday: Erno Laszlo Anti-Blemish Beta Purifying Mask

Ever since I first became acquainted with the range when I was sat in front of the very tubs that Marilyn Monroe herself dipped her fingers into when doing her evening skincare routine (post with pictures here - apologies for the rubbish images, the post is from way back in 2012!) I've had to biggest soft spot for this iconic brand.  I love the packaging, the names and the ideas of each and every product launch, so I'm always excited to hear what[...]


Mask Monday: Rodial Super Acids X-Treme Hangover Masks

Ahhhh hangovers, I remember them fondly from back in the day when I would have a night out, binge drink and regret it terribly the next day.  Had I had this mask in my possession during my binge-drinking days then at the very least my skin wouldn't have given away my naughty escapades. The Rodial Super Acids X-Treme Hangover Mask is a brightening, exfoliating treat for the skin with most of the focus being on acids and clay.  It also clai[...]
