sit down, relax and put on a face mask

Good afternoon on Friday August 18th, 

I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend, I know I am with a 21st birthday party and then we are going off to watch Dreamgirls! For this post I thought I would share my favourite face masks which are something that I love to take the time and indulge in at the end of the week especially if I am having a particularly bad skin day. 

3.REN Evercalm Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask: £28 for 50ml. At number 3 this is a greatDSC_0064 mask if you’re prone to easily irritated, over-sensitised skin.  The soothing and comforting mask can  strengthen the protective barrier, re-establish the natural balance of your skin as  well as and combat redness and itchiness. You can use this mask up to three times a week or just whenever your skin needs rescuing. This product contains no parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance or colours, silicones or glycols – all of which can cause reactions for irritable, reactive skin.  The product contains four main ingredients; White Mushroom Extract: Calms and comforts. Yeast Compound: Accelerates recovery after stress with potent antibacterial and antihistamine effects. Arnica: Reduces redness. Roman Chamomile Scent: Offers a warm, sweet, relaxing, and calming feeling for both body and mind.

I really like the consistency of this mask and how it feels on the skin and unlike other masks does sink into the skin and really feels like it is doing something. I also like that this product comes with a pump as the thing I hate about masks is that they are so messy and often sticky! The other thing is that the chamomile scent is very present and one of the things that I don’t like about it as I prefer a fresh or fruity scent. 

2. Kiehl’s Tumeric and Cranberry seed Energizing Radiance Masque £29 for 100ml. With e4c975a73e4ef1119f7dc769dfa477dbthis mask you can energise dull, tired skin before a party or night out with this radiance-revealing facial in a jar. The crushed cranberry seeds act as a mild exfoliant and skin is brightened considerably when dull dead skin cells are removed. It leaves your skin feeling so smooth, make-up glides on like a dream

1. Tony Moly Master Lab Ceramide Mask Sheet $9

Sheet masks are by far my favourite to use and perhaps they are the most cooling and 2503096mess is very little. One of my favourite brands of these masks is Tony Moly which although they are not available that easily on the high street but are around online and really don’t cost very much. The Tony Moly Master Lab Ceramide Mask Sheet uses the nude seal fabric – a new material made of natural cellulose with silky soft texture and an excellent absorption & adherence function better than cotton – to closely adhere to skin and effectively deliver active ingredients to make it healthy by providing deep moisture and nourishment.

I love this mask because it is uber hydrating–and since my skin can act like a sad, neglected sponge in the winter, absorbing my daily moisturizer so fast it’s like I never even applied it, uber hydrating is exactly what I need it is also great after a flight when your skin is so.dried out.   

As always I hope you found this interesting and please tell me in the comments your favorite masks as I really want to try some more out.
