Face masks are an essential to my skincare routine and I’ve been using them since quite a young age, therefore meaning I’ve experienced quite a few face masks with different benefits. In this post, I’m going to be covering my favourite face masks and what they do for my skin!
Now, in my opinion, this is an underrated Lush product. It seems that the only face mask that gets recognition is the mask of magnaminty and although that one’s amazing, it just doesn’t quite work as well with my skin as the Don’t Look at Me mask. This one is a vibrant blue and has a citrus scent. It also gently exfoliates with soft grains of ground rice. Whenever I wash this off, my skin feels super soft and smooth which is what I want every time I use a face mask! It also seems to even out my complexion slightly which is a small added benefit!
This is the mask I reach for when my skin is really playing up for 2 reasons. 1, it’s good at drying out the skin and 2, it’s very pricey. Mostly when I use this mask, I use it to spot treat so I’m not wasting product and it’s only drying out my spots and not the whole of my skin. I’ve actually featured this face on my stories on Instagram which you can follow here.
Okay so, one of the main reasons that I like this mask is just because it’s so fun. I love the glitter and I love pulling it off, I think it so much more entertaining than just washing it off! My tube is limited edition since I got it at Christmas but the one I’ve tagged is the my little pony mask which is the the exact same mask but different colour. It’s also not too strong when it’s set so it doesn’t hurt when you pull it off, I’ve had face masks that are painful and it just really takes the fun out of it! I’m not sure whether it’s this mask in particular that I love or the glitter so once I’ve used it up, I’m going to purchase a different glitter mask to see how it compares because it does add an improvement but I don’t know if that’s common among all peel off masks.
This mask is my literal skin saviour! I apply it, it heats up and my skin is perfectly clear 15 minutes later when I wash it off. Not only is it my holy grail face mask but it also smells good enough to eat, though I wouldn’t recommend it since it has no ingredients that could make it even taste close to chocolate! The next biggest benefit of this is the price, it’s 99p a sachet and you could get more than one use out of this though I always use the whole packet in one go since it would be quite messy to save for another time. As for how my skin is after, despite clear, it’s extremely soft, and this is because it doesn’t dry out. This is a benefit but you do have to be careful because it’s not fun to brush your cheek accidentally across your shirt and leave a brown streak in its trail.
Now there isn’t a particular one but I do love sheet masks in general. I tend to go for the Korean ones since they seem to be the experts for it. Due to my oily skin, I follow the recommended time on the packet and when I take it off, I like to massage the serum into my face and neck. I love the look of my skin the morning after using these types of masks. It’s just so supple and hydrated, though it’s definitely not a skin clearing mask so I avoid them during those times of the month when my skin decides to take revenge against me for absolutely no reason. I try and use these once a month or so when my skin feels unusually dry, and it sorts them out straight away! Another bonus is that they’re also inexpensive!
