So after my wonderful facial at the spa break, that is now a distant memory, I thought I’d treat myself to some face masks to try and relive a little bit of that wonderful pampering!
As usual I went to old faithful Superdrug as a friend had told me their face masks were on offer. The masks are 99p each or 4 for the price of 3 at the moment!!!! The choice is really good and covers all skin types. As these are Superdrug’s own they are cruelty free endorsed by the BUAV!
I brought 4 but the one I tried tonight was the cucumber cooling clay mask which is “ideal for sensitive skin”. It’s easy to put on and is very creamy and thick, my hubby helped me get it out of the sachet so I had it all and there is more than enough to cover your face. It warmed up at first and then dried, my very funny (not) husband kept trying to make me laugh so it would crack ha ha! After 15 mins I washed it off and my skin felt beautiful, it felt soft, wasn’t dry and didn’t feel tight at all. I love this mask and am feeling like I will definitely add a face mask to my weekly routine, I ❤ my soft skin, this is FAB!!!!
Below is a rather fetching picture of me with it on! :s
Got this last time I was in Lush it’s a cute little sample of their Charity Pot mosituriser. It’s recommended for hand and body but I’ve only used it on my hands so far. Unlike the Tiny Hands this is a lite liquid lotion and not a solid bar, it’s very liquid which is perfect for everyday use.
The fantastic thing about this is the whole of the price you pay goes into the Lush charity pot! They only take VAT nothing else! So you’re basically making a donation to charity and getting a present in return, hurrah!!!!!!!!!
Unlike other Lush products this isn’t as strong-smelling and absorbs very quickly into the skin. Because it’s light it’s not as heavy on the skin and is an excellent moisturiser for everyday use. I found my hands were soft without being greasy and the absorption was good, especially as it takes longer now on my skin. I used it during the day at work today and found that it didn’t get in the way too much of using the keyboard and mouse.
All in all this is a good moisturiser and, as it’s for charity is totally guilt free!!!!!!!
