I have really gotten into face masks over the last 6 months , I love nothing more than going to bed early , face mask on and a good book in hand ! I know , I sound like a 90 year old woman but I swear if you have no sleep , long work days or just need to really relax then bed , book and face mask is the best remedy , trust me !
I love trying out new masks and have found some super ones in TK MAXX but like everything else in my life , I tend to stick with ones that I find really good and try not to stray ! With face masks I tend to use cheaper ones , with one exception – What can I say I LOVE Charlotte Tilbury ( A lot ) !
Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin clay mask
First of all a full size version of this is €48 ! I realise that this is crazy expensive and no I did not spend that much but I will be , I got loads of sample when I bought some products – Samples are the best way to try out expensive products without the financial commitment 😉 As with all of her products there are some HUGE claims and , like the rest of her products , it lives up to this hype ! This mask rejuvenates your skin and leaves it feeling clean , nourished and even hides your pores ! This would be great to use before a big event or night out as it leaves your skin looking amazing ! You only need a thin layer of product so a little goes a long way ! It is very hard to describe the feeling of your skin after – I liken it to how your skin feels after using the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser – Clean without the uncomfortable tight feeling .
Simple – Rich Moisture Sheet Mask
My skin can get dehydrated from the aircon in the office , warm weather and the fact I am pretty bad at drinking water ! This mask does what it says on the tin , it leaves your skin feeling hydrated and soft – Simple are a great brand as their products are not full of chemicals and have no scent which I find great – There is nothing worse than a sheet mask that has a very strong scent ! These are pretty reasonable in price and are currently half price in Boots .
Garnier – Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask
These are fab masks and I use them at least once a week ! I get mine in Penneys and my local Lloyds as they are much cheaper than other stores . Again , these are hydrating and they do not have that annoying dripping that some hydrating masks do . My skin always feel soft and has less lines after ( which is always good !! ) I always have a stock of these at home for when I feel my skin is dehydrated .
Vichy – Quenching Mineral Mask
This is a wonderfully hydrating mask that gives your skin a beautifully refreshed and hydrated feel .Vichy are known for using mineralising thermal water which is very cooling and helps your skin look refreshed . There are some ingredients like green tea and bamboo which are thought to relax you – I am not sure about that quality but it leaves a lovely light scent on your skin. You can get these in any good chemist .
