February 2018 Glossybox Unboxing

I’ve really missed receiving a glossybox each month so was overjoyed that I got given a subscription for my birthday! As usual its filled with five lovely products I can’t wait to try.
This gorgeous ‘vintage romance’ palette from Sleek (RRP £8.99) was the first thing I got, it contains 12 colours which will cover you from day to night. Ciate nail polishes have always been a favourite of mine so I know I’m going to love this one in ‘racing queen’ (RRP £6). This Steve Laurent lip gloss in ‘Nude Pop’ (RRP £17) is going straight in my handbag. It leaves a gorgeous tint to the lips and the rose gold packaging is so luxurious.I’m really looking forward to using this Skin Chemists London 24-Hour Aqua Repair Facial Serum (RRP £64) which is is formulated to soothe and hydrate the skin for all day moisture. Also included is Studio 10 Beauty’s Makeup Mist Glow-Plexion (Travel size £14) which instantly primes, refreshes and hydrates dull, lacklustre skin. It can also be used as a makeup setting spray.

My Top 3 Face Masks

I absolutely love doing face masks as a little treat to brighten up my skin and have tried out a lot over the past few years! They’re also a lovely thing to buy someone as they come in a variety of prices so you can get one to suit your budget. Here are my top five favourites in no particular order!

Montagne Jeunesse (7th Heaven) Sachets

These are the perfect masks to buy for a little pick me up as they only cost £1 and there are a variety of different types so there’s guaranteed to be one you’ll love! My personal favourite is the dead sea mud pack as I have oily, spot prone skin.

Sanctuary 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask

This mask is amazing for oily/combination skin types as it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and deeply cleansed. The tube costs around £10.50 however if that’s a little too expensive you can get a sachet which will last for two goes for £2.99.

Liz Earle Brightening Treatment Mask

Every now and then my skin looks dull, lacklustre and needs a boost! This mask is perfect for that as it sinks in within a few minutes and leaves your skin feeling soft and looking bright and healthy. It’s also a great gift idea for someone who is into skincare, however it is slightly more pricey at £16 for a 50ml starter kit including a muslin cloth.

Weekly Favourite/DIY

Each week I’m going to tell you about my favourite thing; whether it be a person, product or something else.

My favourite this week is my DIY egg white face mask.

If you have oily, acne prone or old skin, this mask is for you. It tightens and smooths out the skin whilst leaving it incredibly soft. I’ve been using it once or twice a week for the past few weeks and have noticed a major improvement to my overall complexion. I also tried it on my mam to see if it would work for her, and it did. It left her skin both looking feeling younger.

All you need to do is whisk an egg white, apply it to your face and leave for 10-20 minutes until it is dry. Then wash off and voila, gorgeous skin!

Do any of you have any home made masks you love? Or have you tried this one?

Top 3 Face Masks

Having oily, sensitive skin makes finding face masks that work an impossible challenge, they always seem to be too harsh and leave my skin feeling irritated and raw. Finally, after a lot of awful experiences, I’ve found three masks that do wonderful things to my skin.

I’m going to tell you about each of them, in no particular order.

The Body Shop’s Honey & Oat 3 In 1 Scrub Mask

This mask is absolutely brilliant, I use it once a week to soften and gently exfoliate my skin. I would recommend it for all skin types as it is gentle but gives great results as it is so moisturising. It also smells lovely and is easy to apply.

Retails at £9

The Body Shop’s Warming Mineral Mask

I’ve been using this mask for years now, and could honestly never replace it. I use it once a week to give my skin a deep cleanse. It gently warms up when  applied to the skin so it can unclog pores and prevent spots. When rinsed off after the five minutes, it leaves the skin feeling squeaky clean, yet not dry and tight.

Retails at £9

Sanctuary Moisture Boosting Mask

I use this mask whenever my skin is looking dull as it gives the skin a gorgeous healthy glow.  It also seems to calm redness and improves my skin tone and texture.

Retails at £2.03 per sachet

I hope I’ve helped anyone who is struggling to find a good mask.
