Facemask Friday: Murad Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask Review

April 11, 2014
Murad Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask Review

  Today’s facemask is the Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask from Murad, a brand that I’d not heard of before this sample arrived in last month’s Love Me Beauty box. I say sample, but it’s not actually a sample – when you purchase this you receive six of these little sachets, and I’m not entirely sure I like this concept as one of the first things I noticed was that you get way more than you need for one use. The official description- Dissolve…

Soap and Glory no clogs allowed

It’s been absolutely ages since I posted, but with Christmas and new years out of the way now seems the perfect time to be giving my skin some TLC and I couldn’t put on a face-mask without knocking out a #Facemaskfriday blog! The Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Super Self Heating Deep Pore Detox Mask (I swear the names of products are getting longer again!) is an exfoliating, self-heating mask that doesn’t harden. You take a grape sized amount…

Facemask Friday – The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask

December 20, 2013

I absolutely love tea tree products, one of my firm favourite’s used to be Superdrug’s exfoliating Tea Tree Face Pads before they changed the product slightly and they now don’t seem to resemble sandpaper as closely. (I know I know, bad for your skin but it feels so good!) When my skin is feeling a bit drab I love using this tea tree face mask from The Body Shop. It’s also probably one of the nicest face masks to apply due…

Facemask Friday – Avon Planet Spa Thailand Lotus Flower

November 15, 2013

Well it’s Friday again, and after a rather rocky few weeks for Gem and I consisting of feeling under the weather and bogged down with reams of work as the festive season approaches it’s a chance to take a step back and relax. (Not for too long mind!) Today’s facemask is the Avon Planet Spa Thailand Lotus Flower deep pore cleansing facemask. (Bit of a mouthful there!) My favourite thing about this mask, is the way it drys, it turns…

Facemask Friday – Sugar and Spice Self-Heating Mask

October 25, 2013
sugar and spice

I usually go for deep cleansing and pore refining masks, but this was picked up on a whim in a 2 for 3 offer a while ago, and I figured I may as well give it a try whilst my pores are behaving for once! The warming sensation is lovely and very soothing. I was having quite a stressful morning and felt instantly more relaxed once the facemask started heating up beneath my fingers. The smell is a delicious vanilla…

Facemask Friday – The Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask

October 18, 2013

Like Gem, I am a fan of face masks and as you all know, I may have more than a slight obsession with The Body Shop. This is a mask that I haven’t used in a while but before gig day tomorrow, I felt it was appropriate to bring a little pampering into my Friday evening! This Warming Mineral Mask is the perfect mask for a dull, miserable day/evening. It doesn’t set and dry hard, however it warms when rubbed…

Facemask Friday: Avon Planet Spa Dead Sea Minerals

October 11, 2013
avon planet spa dead sea

This has been one of my favourite facemasks for ages but I’ve had to do without  as it was omitted from the brochures and online for a while. Then suddenly I found an unopened tube in the back of my facemask drawer – hurrah! These tubes last a really long time as I find you only need a very thin layer, as opposed to the sachets where you have to use it all in one go. It works great at…

Facemask Friday – Superfruits Exfoliating Mask

September 27, 2013
superdrug superfruits facemask

  We all love a multi-tasker right? Well this facemask is something I’ve never come across before, but when you think about it it just makes perfect sense! The mask contains ground up strawberry seeds so as you apply it you have a built in exfoliator! The scent of this alone is worth raving on about, a mix of strawberry, blueberry, cranberry and raspberry that doesn’t feel synthetic and isn’t too overpowering once it’s on your face. It dried in…

Facemask Friday – Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask

Amie spring clean clay face mask

  My collection of face-masks is quickly overwhelming the storage space I have set aside for them, so in an attempt to start using them more often (I’m sure my skin will thank me!) I’ve decided to try a different one every Friday to review for you all! First up is the Amie SPRING CLEAN Cooling Clay Mask. I received this in my last Latest in Beauty Little Beauty Box (which Amie reviewed here). I’ve been eager to try out this brand for…
