One of my favourite things to do is to have a pamper. To try and unwind and truly have some me time, to be honest, I crave it.
I wanted to share with you my favourite face masks, these are all high street ones that I would recommend.
L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Mask
This is the cheapest of the 3 I’m talking about today, but probably the one I would recommend the most, at around £7.99.
As soon as clay masks hit the market, this one was all over the internet and I can see why.
This visibly opens your pores to allow all those impurities out of your skin. Smooth consistency when you apply it and as it dries, these little pores stop popping up.
I’ll be honest, I keep this on for about 15 minutes as my face starts to get irritable when I can’t make any expression without its cracking my face.
What I love about this mask, is that it doesn’t dry out your skin, like you would expect. It leaves my skin feeling soft, but also perfect for squeezing out those leftover white and blackheads. This especially works well on my problem areas on my nose and chin.
I try to use this once a week, but I do occasionally…ok most of the times, forget to do it.
The Body Shop Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask
I love the skincare products from The Body Shop and when they started launching these ranges of face masks, I had to give them a go. Even though this wasn’t the first one I’ve bought, that will be coming next, this one was one of their most recent releases in the range.
At a higher price of £17, oh and vegan-friendly, this face mask claims to remove pollutants and impurities, like a clay mask.
This one is different though, instead of a smooth consistency, it’s grainy, so you get a good exfoliation at the same time while you’re applying.
Once I’ve washed it off, my skin feels like…like…indescribable. It’s literally like my skin been taken to a professional cleaner, steamed and ironed, brand new.
The Body Shop Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask
This was the first face mask I bought from The Body Shop and I am so happy I did.
I always use this one after a clay mask, as it leaves my skin feeling restored, replenished and amazingly soft. Even though a clay mask, especially the L’Oreal one isn’t drying. I always feel that your skin does need to be re-nourished.
This mask is 100% vegetarian and smells like you’re putting honey on your face, without the sticky aftermath.
I always feel indulgent after I’ve used this, and I know my skin has had a good time. My only problem is…trying not to eat it!
Both this and the Japanese Matcha Tea mask, have gorgeous packing. So simple and different, but also unison across the different types you can get.
I am quite sure, I want to buy all of them in the collection, then I’d have masks for all occasions, including my girlfriends when they come around.
