Current Face Mask Favourites

Let's talk face masks. I love trying out face masks - there are so many brands and varieties to try, whether it be overnight masks, eye masks, sheet masks or regular cream masks. So in today's post I have put together some of my current favourites.

Starting with the Beauty Pro Rose Infused Sheet Mask (£4.95), which calms the skin, soothes irritation and minimises redness. It is an anti-inflammatory treatment that relieves and softens the skin, leaving your face feeling relaxed and revitalised. Utilising the effects of powerful botanical extracts, the serum cleanses the skin of impurities, preventing blemishes or irritation and provides the skin with a healthy and radiant glow. The superfood rich formula is centred around hand picked Bulgarian Rose, an extremely effective skincare ingredient due to its success in toning, moisturising and cell renewal, tightening and firming the skin, whilst also keeping it soft. To use, simply apply the sheet mask to cleansed skin, sit back and relax for 15 minutes, and then remove and press the remaining serum into the skin.

For a beautiful overnight mask treatment, I recommend the Natura Siberica SOS Soothing Night Face Mask* (£10.49 for 50ml). This Mask comes in a frosted glass jar and has a gel-cream consistency which is refreshing on the skin. The formula contains Snow Cladonia, hand-picked and collected in the wild, which has an amazing effect on the skin due to its high content of the unique Usnic Acid, which helps rejuvenate and lift the skin and prevent the formation of fine lines. Organic Siberian Pine Oil, a unique natural source of polyunsaturated acids, Vitamins E and F, nourishes and softens the skin. Hyaluronic Acid nourishes and deeply moisturises the skin, increasing its firmness and elasticity. This creamy mask helps to assist the skins natural repair process during sleep, firming and smoothing the skin as well as improving the complexion. To use, apply a thin layer to cleansed skin, and do not rinse off until morning.

I sleep terribly and so my most used masks are often eye masks. The Masque Bar Hydro Eye Masks* (£3.99 each) are amazing! There are many types to choose from and here I have Pure Gold, which contains Hydrolysed Collagen and Coconut Extract to help improve skin elasticity and has a hydrating effect, Coffee, which contains Caffeine to help de-puff the eye area and Coffee Extract to help minimise the appearance of undereye bags, and Aqua, which contains Hyaluronic Acid for hydration and Collagen to help soften and smooth out any lines. They are super refreshing under the eye area and you simply apply under the eyes for 20-30 minutes, and sit back and relax before removing them and gently patting in any excess serum. I prefer to use mine in a morning as that is when I find them most useful for when my eyes are tired. 

Another sheet mask which I really enjoy time and time again is the Lavera Illuminating Sheet Mask* (£6.95), of which there are also other types available including Firming, Hydro, Purifying and Sensitive. The Sheet Mask is infused with natural and organic ingredients including the active ingredients of Dragon Fruit and Raspberry which give intense moisture and brightens the skin, leaving the complexion with a gorgeous flow. The Green Illuminating Complex is a nourishing formula based on Lychee Extract and natural antioxidants for beautiful skin. I find when I use this Mask that my skin is glowy, radiant, moisturised and well nourished as well as feeling super fresh. To use, simply apply the Sheet Mask to cleansed skin and sit back and relax for 15 minutes. After removing the mask, be sure to gently massage the remaining serum into the skin for extra goodness.

I do sometimes suffer from sensitised skin and so for times like that I enjoy using the REN Evercalm Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask (£40.00 for 50ml), which comes in a plastic bottle with a push down applicator. This Mask has been specially developed to combat over-sensitivity, and calms, soothes and moisturises the skin, helping to instantly alleviate the key signs of sensitive skin. Formulated with REN's exclusive active complex, it strengthens the protective moisture barrier to aid recovery and increase the skin's ability to cope with stress, improving the overall well-being of the skin. The Mask leaves my skin feeling smooth, with an even tone and healthy looking. It helps to support the natural balance of over reactive skin to leave a soft-touch velvety feel and delivering the ultimate sensation of calm and comfort. You can use the Rescue Mask three times a week by applying a generous amount onto cleansed skin, leaving for 10-15 minutes and then gently removing any excess with a cool damp cloth. 

All the Loves,
