If there is one thing I have devoted my love and knowledge to, it is skincare products. For the last 3 years or so, I have spent a large portion on my money, and time, on skincare. Thankfully, when I was in the States, anything I ordered from Sephora came with 3 free samples so I was able to try and test different products without having to pay too much.
Now I do consider to know quite a bit about skincare. And face masks have become my absolute favourite thing ever. I have purchased and used many many masks.
So with that being said, for this week’s Friday Favourites, I decided to write about my favourite face masks. And, of course, I’ll tell you why they’re my favourites.
If you take a look at the picture, you can see that I own about 13 different masks. I like all of them, but I will narrow it down to my 4 favourite ones that I have been using lately.
As you know I love the Sephora mud mask, I have been using a different one recently that I actually think I may like even more. DUN DUN DUUUUUN.
If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen me post about it the other day. I also included it in last week’s post on my favourite acne clearing products. It is the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask from The Body Shop. And it is everything. It does the same thing as a lot of the other mud masks, meaning it draws out the dirt and oils from your skin but as you get it wet and wash it off your face, it also exfoliates.
I love this stuff.
And speaking of The Body Shop, the first mask I ever tried from there was the Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask. And it’s still one of my favourites. I do this mask basically as soon as I get home from going out in London. As the city has so much air pollution that it even turns my bogeys grey (TMI, I know #sorrynotsorry), I can only imagine what it’s doing to my skin. Hence why I use this face mask. You can feel it clearing your skin as it sits on there. And it exfoliates your face as you wash it off as well. My face always feels so smooth after this one.
And the newest one to the group is the Superfood Skin Reset face mask from Youth to the People. It’s made with Spirulina, Microalgae, Kale and Spinach. I tried it for the first time last week and I love it already. I could see how bright it made my face and the next day my acne was much calmer and the redness had faded. It’s marketed as an age prevention mask, but I have a feeling this mask would be a perfect addition to your weekly routine, as it did so much more for my face than prevent me from aging.
As prepared and organized as I usually am, my spots aren’t. And sometimes you need a last minute mask that can prevent a spot from getting even worse. And this is why I am so very thankful for the 10 Minute Mask to Rescue Problem Skin from Origins. If I have a special event coming up, I will usually put this mask on before I start to get ready. I leave it on for about 20 minutes (even though it says 10) and then use a damp washcloth (flannel) to scrape the mask off my face. It is so rejuvenating and definitely helps to keep spots at bay. I would highly suggest every single one of you to have this mask on reserve!
As you can probably tell, my favourite brands are Origins and the Body Shop when it comes to afforable face masks that work. If you have other skincare worries, definitely travel to both of their websites and have a look at what they offer and try a few for yourself.
Much Love and Happy Weekend to you all!
