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: 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[...]

Mask Monday: NIOD Flavanone Mud

I find NIOD absolutely fascinating and I love going on their website and reading their long product descriptions - if you're a skincare fanatic then there is plenty of joy to be found in a NIOD product info page! I remember the major excitement that surrounded the NIOD Flavanone Mud mask when it launched as everyone who used it spoke of how quickly it delivered results, so you can imagine how excited I was to try this bad boy myself. One of[...]

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: Dermovia Lace Your Face Calming Chamomile Face Mask

It's very telling that I can put on a lace sheet mask that completely covers my face and jawline, leaving me looking like something out of a horror film, and my 3 year old son Teddy doesn't bat an eyelid.  Sheet masks are no longer a new thing; I think it's even safe to say that we're a little bit swamped by them now - they're 2016's answer to the BB Cream, with high-street brands offering them freely now too - but the Dermovia Lace Your Face she[...]

Mask Monday: Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask

The Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask is an award-winning treatment mask built around the cult Alpha-H Liquid Gold chemical exfoliator.  I've raved about Alpha-H many a' time on here because it's one of the most results-driven ranges you can get your hands on without having to have some form of formal consultation first.  This is mostly due to the high concentration of Glycolic Acid which features prominently in the majority of[...]


Mask Monday: Bio-Essence Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask

I'm really loving sleeping masks at the moment, and I think they're a particularly great find for dehydrated spot-prone skin types as they're rich and very nourishing, yet they don't seem to break me out, so they're a real find! My love for sleeping masks has been speedily reignited thanks to the rather wonderful Bio-Essence Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask, which has an insanely long name, a rather gimmicky premise, yet it's a[...]


Mask Monday: Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque

The Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque has such a huge, cult following so I couldn't wait to get it on my face to find out what all the fuss is about.  There is something just so wonderful about this style of packaging; I can't put my finger on it but I think it's just that it's quite a bit different to typical skincare packaging, plus it has that apothecary vibe that makes it fun to play with. The Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque is[...]


Mask Monday: Caudalie Moisturising Mask

I've been lucky enough to receive a few Caudalie goodies lately, some of which are absolute keepers (hello Grape Water!) and some of which I couldn't wait to try, namely the masks.  Caudalie have four main masks in their range, all of which can be paired together for some serious mask power - I really like this idea as I do find my skin benefits most from being treated with several types of masks (usually either cleansing or exfoliating followed[...]


Mask Monday: Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask

It's Mask Monday time again! After a slight hiatus thanks to Bank Holidays and lacking organisational skills, but now I'm back and I'm masking up good and proper, starting with one of the two new launches in the range of Clinique masks.  I think it's fair to say that Clinique product no-nonsense skincare that does what it says on the tin, and that's very much the case for the new Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask. This is quite clear[...]


SUQQU Gankin Facial Massage with the Musculate Massage & Mask Cream

A few weeks ago I popped along to Selfridges to acquaint myself with all that Japanese beauty brand, SUQQU, has to offer.  I spent a good while grilling the brand's UK Makeup Artist, Tomoko Kinoshita, on all things beauty and experienced both the infamous Gankin Facial Massage as well as a makeover using the SUQQU Spring/Summer 2015 Collection, the latter of which is absolutely gorgeous, so keep your eyes peeled for my post on that soon.  Today[...]
