Oh face masks - so many varieties, brands, skin types and solutions but I have finally found 3 that actually work, can I get an amen?! Before I jump in though, let me just tell you a bit about my nightmare of a face. I have oily to combination skin which is very prone to breakouts so when I am having a particularly bad day, I hop in the bath and smother my face in a mask and prey that I notice a difference in 20 minutes but of course, I am *usually* let down every time. With some masks I have used in the past (and trust me, I've used many), I literally never see a difference and it just feels like a waste of time and money so I decided to stick to testing my favourites over a couple of weeks and these beauties didn't let me down!

Price: £6.95 for 125g, £12.50 for 315g and £19.95 for 600g

I have been using this mask for as long as I can remember but I have fallen in love with it all over again! I don't know about you but I like products that I can feel working and this does just that. As it contains peppermint oil, it gives a light tingle but doesn't feel uncomfortable, instead its incredibly soothing and definitely calms the skin. I like to use this either in the bath or after steaming my face with the Dream Steam tabs as hot water really helps to open pores so you feel the full benefit of the mask. When you're ready to wash it off, there are little evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to give a gentle exfoliation - win win! So, if you're looking for a spot fighter that leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated and full of life then give this one a go! 


Price: £32

I was impressed with this product as soon as I got it out the box as applying a mask with your fingers can get a little messy but ThisWorks have answered all our skincare prayers! You apply this mask with a charcoal brush applicator, which is on the bottom of the tube; that means no more product getting stuck in your fingernails, hurray! If you live or work in London, you will know all about the air pollution but did you know it can have negative effects on your complexion? This miracle mask gives your skin a deep clean to remove all the polluting particles from your pores. When applying this, similar to the Lush mask, you can really feel it working and drawing out impurities. This mask is on the pricier side but honestly, its so worth it!

Price: £9.99

I have featured this in a couple of my most recent posts but, I just had to talk about it again! I am prone to hormonal spots which are incredibly painful so I have started to pop this on before going to bed and by the time I wake up, the blemish is noticeably smaller and doesn't hurt as much. Of course you can still apply this like a normal mask and then wash off after 10-15 minutes but I have found that it works wonders being used as a spot treatment, give it a try! 

So, there we go. I hope this has helped you in some way and introduced you to some new products, if you hadn't heard of them before. Let me know if you give them ago, I'd love to know what you think!
