Tested out these Christian Breton Hydrogel Eye Contour Masks tonight. These are infused with hyaluronic acid and green tea to reduce puffiness and dark circles.

They are padded gels with what feels like felt on one sided, they stick really well and don't slide about your face.

I had them on for about 20 minutes, I noticed some plumping of fine lines but not much else. Might try refrigerating before I use them next time to see if that has a better effect - definitely glad I only paid £4 from TK Maxx and not the £34 RRP!!

The Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask BHA is a super thin mask that smells a bit citrusy/medicinal. The fit is great and no eye poking @haninibun 😉!! The mask is saturated in a thin clear essence and adhered well.
I kept this on for just under 30 minutes, skin looked brighter and pores did appear "tighter". I really like the Skin Clinic masks I've tried so far and will definitely buy more!

tonight I'm using Sasatinnie Rosehip Oil Tightening and Rejuvenating Silky Mask. Rosehip oil is my favourite ingredient and was what first got me hooked on skincare years ago when I used A'kin Rosehip Oil to fade a large V-shaped scar on my face. 🌹
This has an amazing rose scent, I'm such a sucker for rose scented skincare. The fit was great, my only gripe was the eye holes were too small for me and it kept irritating my lower lashes. It adhered nicely and I kept it on for 40 minutes. The essence absorbed quickly and my skin looks brighter and pores do look a bit "tighter".

The Ariul 7 Days Mask in Avocado is a thicker mask that has a subtle scent. The fit is quite wide but small around the eyes. The mask is saturated in a milky essence and adhered well.

Stayed moist for about 30 minutes, skin felt well moisturised and refreshed once removed and it didn't leave skin tacky or oily looking. Would definitely try others from this range.

I'm trying the Beauty Love Almighty Three-Way Snail Repair Whitening Mask. Phew what a name!! This mask will leave skin hydrated, smooth and bright.
Ingredients include snail extract, birds nest peptide, chamomile and hyaluronic acid - I think this might be my first mask with birds nest peptide !
Its a thin mask that has a pleasant perfumed scent, kind of like shampoo. This was so juicy and there's a ton of essence left in the pack. The fit was great and it adheres well, I ended up wearing this for close to an hour and it was still moist!
Skin was left brighter and hydrated. I really liked this mask and a quick Google shows its easily available in the UK

Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Mask in Lemon is a thinner mask, it reminds me of the material used in LJH tea tree masks. It has a kitchen cleaner lemon scent but it's not overpowering. The fit is quite large but adheres well. Kept on for about 40 minutes before it started drying out. Skin looks brighter and calmer.

Tonight is the #4seasons syn-ake anti wrinkle time reset newborn #sheetmask gifted to me by my original_lucys.
I'm interested to see if this really will erase 31 years off my face 😂😛 🌵
This mask contains syn-ake, a peptide that is similar to snake venom that will improve fine wrinkles.
The mask is a thin cotton with no noticeable fragrance. It was so #juicy as I've come to expect from these masks, and had plenty spare for my arms and legs as it dripped everywhere!
I kept it on for about 30 minutes and it was still soaked with #essence. My face was left well moisturised and plump looking, but I still look my age 😉!

4seasons collagen lifting wrinkle care intensive mask contains essence from marine collagen to provide intensive nourishment and moisture.   Quite an earthy smell, reminded me of the ginseng mask from this range, dripping wet and was still quite juicy after 30 minutes. My face was a bit sticky once the mask was removed, but looked well moisturised and plump.

 Tonight is the #4seasons multi vita brightening active sheetmaskThis mask contains highly concentrated multi-vitamin essence that brightens and vitalizes skin.
The mask is a thin #cotton with no noticeable fragrance. It was so #juicy, and had plenty spare for my arms and legs.
I kept it on for about 30 minutes and it was still soaked with #essence. My face was left well moisturised and most of my redness from the pimple battle yesterday was reduced 😊

Tonight I'm trying the lemon 🍋 sheet mask from puretree naturalism for brightening and vitalizing. Thick cotton and a strong lemony scent, reminded me of washing up liquid! Reasonably soaked in essence but no spare in the pack. Kept on for about thirty minutes, I had some red marks before where I'd picked a blackhead - I know but I couldn't resist - and it has helped to reduce the redness a bit.

I'm trying the green tea sheet mask from puretree naturalism. It's been a very muggy day again and I've got some redness on my face thanks to hormones!!
Thick cotton and quite dry, I didn't detect a fragrance. It was lovely and cooling, but the thick cotton made it feel a bit suffocating at times! Very similar to the aloe one I tried last week.
Kept on for about thirty minutes, it was very moisturising and toned down some of the redness.

I'm trying the aloe sheet mask from puretree naturalism. It's been a very muggy day here so I put this in the fridge then hopped in the shower to cool down. Boy was this chilly ❄❄!! ✨ Thick cotton and quite dry, I didn't detect a fragrance. It was lovely and cooling, but the thick cotton made it feel a bit suffocating at times! ✨ Kept on for about twenty minutes, it was quite moisturising and helped de-puff my face after a long day at work plus the long hot walk home.

I'm trying the tea tree sheet mask from puretree naturalism. Thick cotton and quite dry, smelled like the body shop tea tree products. Kept on for about twenty minutes, didn't notice any effects after so a bit disappointed.

I tried the #naturerepublic real nature basil seed mask for #moisturising. It contains real basil seed extract from India and 30ml of essence!! This #mask had a perfumed basil scent and sometimes when I caught a whiff it smelled like when I cook curry, but it wasn't too strong or offensive. I've never tried a mask with this texture before, it was the slimiest mask ever and apparently the absorption rate is five times better than normal cotton masks because its made of superfine fibres. It had a thin milky essence and I kept it on for about 30 minutes, my skin felt well moisturised so I skipped the rest of my routine and applied a sleeping pack to lock it all in!!

I tried the #mediheal line friends PDF AC dressing ampoule mask - phew 😅 what a mouthful!! This #mask was so juicy it dripped everywhere trying to get it on!
And there's a chicken on my cheek, squee!!
This had no scent that I could detect and stayed juicy for the 30 minutes I wore it.
This mask contains centella asiatica, portulaca oleracea extract and salicylic acid to control oil and make clean skin! I picked this one tonight as suffering a few hormonal breakouts 😢 and hoping it does the trick to reduce redness and calm down the pimples.

I tried the 4 seasons aloe soothing waterful oasis mask, which was a freebie. This mask contains aloe and it soothes irritated skin and brightens and smooths. The mask is a thin cotton with a pleasant fresh #fragrance. It was so  juicy, it was dripping all down my neck and had plenty spare for my arms and legs. 
I kept it on for about 30 minutes and it was still soaked with #essence. My face was left well moisturizing and most of my redness was reduced. For a #freebie this wasn't bad!! 

I tried the #hydraluron#moisture #boosting mask by Indeed Labs. This #mask contains 3D time release hyaluronic acid, ooh fancy! It's supposed to hydrate my skin for the next 24 hours - we will see. I got this from a beauty box, it says on the front 4 sheet masks x 20ml but there was only one mask in the pack? The mask is a thick cotton with no fragrance, and was dripping in #essence. It was also way to big for my face around the lower half. 
I kept it on for about 30 minutes and it was quite dry by then. My face was left well moisturised so I skipped the rest of my routine and added a #sleepingpack. There's still some essence left in the pack that I might reuse. 

I tried this Luffa moisturizing mask, I'm not sure who makes this mask so if anyone can enlighten me that would be great!! I can tell you that its made with luffa extract, witch hzel, and chamomile and I also know that luffa is part of the cucumber family! It didn't smell of very much and the fit was okay, a bit big around my chin but it folded easy and had plenty of little tears in it to make it fit. It was dripping in #essence, and continued to drip down my neck whilst on! I found it to be quite a runny essence that absorbed fairly quickly.  kept it on about 30 minutes. There is a fair amount of essence left in the packet, which I've resealed to use tomorrow.

I tried the Scinic Advance Snail Mask.  It didn't smell of very much and the fit was okay, a bit big around my chin but it folded easy. It was dripping in #essence, so much that some dripped on the carpet, whoops! I kept it on about 30 minutes. There is so much essence left in the packet, I'm going to reseal the pack and use it over the next couple days! Me likey 😍😍 

The packet was so tiny and it was a bit of a faff getting it out and unfolding it. I found it to be quite damp with an almost jelly like #essence and a perfumed #fruityfragrance. It tingled slightly, almost warming, but nipped my poor dry lips a bit.  The fit was okay, not the worst I've tried and it stayed damp for a good 30 minutes. I paired it with the #gold hydrogel eye masks from secret key as it was a bit gappy under my eyes.
No extra essence in the pack My face was left tacky to the touch and felt quite moisturised. Overall, I thought this mask was okay for a quick moisture fix.

You guys, this is the last of my #ljh tea tree sheetmasks 😱, and I really need it tonight since a 🌋 has erupted on my chin!!
My diet has been pretty poor lately, I changed teams at work and these guys always have sweet treats around plus I've been in a "must eat all the food" mood since about July. My work trousers have started to get tight and uncomfortable and now my skin is retaliating too 😢, which is a shame as its looked the best ever lately.
Never fear, this mask plus a #cosrx pimple patch will sort things out.

Tonight I tried the Tosowoong pure Blueberry mask. This #mask smells very #fruity out the packet. There's a lot of extra essence which I'm going to keep for the morning! This is my first time trying a tosowoong mask and I really liked it! It's one of the best fitting masks I've tried recently and stayed moist for a good 40 minutes.

Tonight I tried the Foodaholic Pearl Shining Hydrogel Mask.  This mask also contains pomegranate extract and promises to remove dead skin cells and vitalize the skin. 
The mask came in two pieces and reminded me of the gelatine sheets you use when making desserts. It smelled quite #fruity. The fit was okay and the mask covered my top lip which stung a bit as my lips are quite dry today. It was easy to move into place as so soft and pliable and was quite cooling on my #skin. It felt dry to the touch after 20 minutes, there was a tiny amount of #essence in the pack which I applied before fitting the mask. My face was left dry to the touch so I added a few drops of oil to my moisturiser.

Tonight I tried the Foodaholic vita light on Hydrogel Mask promising vitaliizing glowing and brightening of skin. The mask packet made me giggle as it says "you can feel your shiny face day by day..." not sure that's what I'm looking for but okay. The mask came in two pieces and reminded me of the gelatine sheets you use when making desserts. It smelled strongly of #oranges, but artificial oranges if that makes sense, and it lasted the 30 minutes I had it on. The fit was okay, a bit big around the mouth, and it was easy to move into place as so soft and pliable. It felt dry to the touch after 20 minutes but I kept it on longer as got distracted trying to beat my dad on a trivia app! There was a tiny amount of #essence left in the pack. My face was left tacky to the touch and very shiny which didn't dry down, so I guess the packet was right!

Tonight was the turn of the Tonymoly nutra energy sheet mask with argan oil. This was very moisturising with a pleasant fragrance. I kept this on for half an hour and there was enough extra essence in the packet for one more application. 

 I tried the beauty friends pomegranate mask, that I bought in a recent @skin18com haul. This mask helps to smooth rough skin and tighten pores. I've never tried this brand before. The mask was a thick cotton, and a bit big around the mouth. It smelled very fruity and was saturated out of the packet. I left it on for 45 minutes and applied some of the extra essence. It absorbed really quickly leaving no trace and my skin quite dry, felt I needed to moisture after. It's also left my forehead quite red where I had to double it over. 

Tonight's option was the apple polyphenol mask from #mybeautydiary . This was the very first mask I tried from this brand and I like it a lot. There's a subtle apple fragrance and it helps with tightening pores, brightening and clarifying which is what I needed today! It's a nice thin mask soaked in essence and leaves a non sticky finish and helped reduce redness from some pesky spots that have appeared. 

The innisfree it's real squeeze mask in #rose .I quite like the smell of rose in skincare, I use a lot of #ren skincare which has #rosacentifolia in it as does this mask. The fragrance isn't too strong, I found it subtle enough to leave on for 45 minutes and after this the mask still had a fair amount of #essence on it which patted in nicely and didn't leave any stickiness. This masks aim is to glow and smooth, my skin definitely feels more moisturised and I would use it again.

 tried out the innisfree blackberry mask tonight. This is the first mask I've tried that has a white creamy essence. I didn't think it smelled like blackberries more a generic fruit fragrance but it was pleasant and not overpowering. The mask material was very thin and I accidentally ripped it taking it out the packet, but it was just between the eyes so didn't affect the fit. I found it fit really well for my face and covered well. I ended up leaving it on for 45 minutes as got sucked into a TV show! 
This mask was very moisturising, there was no essence left in the packet so I made sure to pat it all in once I took the mask off. My skin is still quite tacky to touch so I don't think I'll need a sleeping pack tonight. 

I tried the #seatree art snail 100 mask. This #mask had a strong perfumed scent out the pack and lasted for the 20 minutes I wore it. Dripping wet out the packet, it promises to keep my skin glossy and smooth! Quite a short ingredient list but it does contain alcohol and fragrance.
There's some extra #essence which I'm going to keep for the morning.

reating myself to another #4seasons #sheetmasktonight! How cute is the illustration 😍😍?
Tonight I tried the red ginseng white clean active mask, which I either bought or it came free with a purchase from @skin18com, I can't remember 😕. This #mask contains #redginseng to replenish the skin with nutrients and moisture.

The mask is a thin cotton with a #fragrance that's hard to describe, I've never smelled ginseng before but it kind of reminded me of vegetables after the rain? Or shelling fresh pea pods from my uncle's garden. I don't know 😶. Like last night's mask it was so #juicy, it was dripping all down my neck and had plenty spare for my arms and legs which absorbed quickly. The fit was a bit big and wrinkled but there were plenty little flaps to make it fit a bit better. 
I kept it on for about 30 minutes and it was still soaked with #essence. My face was left well moisturised.

The Pur-lisse Blue Lotus and White Tea Treatment Sheet Mask*  is aimed to be intensely moisturising, nourishing and renewing. It fights free radicals and improves skin texture.
Its a thick fiber mask that has a pleasant fruity floral scent, stronger than the cleanser in the same range. The fit was ok, the eye holes a bit small but I find that with most masks. Clingy fit and soaked in essence.
I kept it on for 45 minutes before it started drying out. This mask is very hydrating, the essence absorbed nicely and left skin slightly tacky but not unpleasant. I really liked this mask, my skin looks plump and hydrated.
*Sent to me by @amabiebeauty to test as part of the #amabiealist

tonight I'm trying the Beauty Friends II mask in Coenzyme Q10 which claims to reduce free radicals and protect against pollution and harmful substances 😒.
Its a thick cotton mask that has a nice fresh scent, almost clean smelling. Like all the masks in this range it is really large fitting around my forehead and chin. I kept it on for 20 minutes and skin felt fresher and had a quick moisture hit. Essence absorbed quickly and didn't leave a tacky finish.

 I tried the Tosowoong pure propolis mask. This #mask didn't have much of a smell but I still have a cold so might be wrong!
There's a lot of extra #essence which I'm going to keep for the morning. I really liked it! It's one of the best fitting masks I've tried recently and stayed moist for a good 40 minutes.

Tonight I tried My Scheming Natto Extract Hydrating Mask.  This mask also contains hyaluronic acid and is best suited for dry skin types as super moisturising. Exactly what I need after a day outside painting garden fences! It didn't smell of very much and the fit was amazing, like a second skin! It was dripping in #essence as it comes with 30ml compared to other masks at 20ml. I found it to be quite a runny essence that absorbed fairly quickly. I kept it on about 30 minutes and my skin does feel more nourished. There is a fair amount of essence left in the packet, which I've resealed to use tomorrow.

 Tonight it's the Nature Republic Real Nature Royal Jelly Mask, featuring lots of fake rose petals!!  This was a cotton mask with a decent fit although quite big round my chin, had to use my folding techniques 😀!! It was soaked in a thick gummy type essence and I couldn't really detect a smell.
💝
Kept on for about forty minutes, and my skin looked brighter and less irritated. The essence still feels gummy and my skin tacky to the touch. This was an okay mask but the sticky essence puts me off using again, think I prefer the green tea one I used last week.

I'm trying the Beauty Friends II mask in Potato to soothe rough and damaged skin, and get rid of puffy areas 😏
Its a thick cotton mask that definitely smells like potatoes!!! Quite big around my forehead and chin. I kept it on for 20 minutes and my skin looked a bit brighter, but not very moisturised. Essence absorbed quickly and didn't leave a tacky finish. 

 tonight I'm trying the Beauty Friends II mask in Collagen to deeply moisture and condition the skin using concentrated plant extracts that help the skin absorb nutrients.
🐚
Its a thick cotton mask that has a funky smell I can't put my finger on. Really large fitting around my forehead and chin. I kept it on for 20 minutes and my skin felt like it had a quick moisture hit. Essence absorbed quickly and didn't leave a tacky finish. These are okay for a quick mask but I won't repurchase.

tonight I'm using Tuning Face Essence Mask Sheet in Different Moisturising - it's good for skin moisturising.
Really cold to put on - is it just me or are some masks colder than others?? This is a thick cotton mask soaked in a milky jelly type essence. A faint soapy rose scent - rose water is a listed ingredient. Stayed damp for 45 minutes and my skin feels so moisturised, just what I needed after the cold and snow of last few days.
I've been #reading The Hunter by #elmoreleonard, classis action writing from the 1970's!! Set in Israel, it follows Al Rosen who is in hiding from a whole host of crooked people, they discover where he is after his picture is in the paper for rescuing some people in a hotel fire and are soon hot on his heels.

Tonight I'm trying the #itsskin blueberry sheet mask for vitality and moisture.
This was a big fit, especially around my chin, quite a few gaps and a faint fruity scent. Reasonably soaked in essence and some spare in the pack for my dried up legs! Kept on for about thirty minutes, face felt well moisturised and dried down matte. The fit puts me off re-purchasing though.

I tried the #urbandollkiss fifty dollars Welcome to Korea moistfull sheetmask. 
This is the last of these money masks in my stash. Thick cotton and already quite dry. Faint soap powder smell. I find these useful for a quick mask session as they don't really last longer than 10-15 minutes, but I won't repurchase as I think there is much better masks out there.
The packet was also so tiny and it was a bit of a faff getting it out and unfolding it. 

Tonight is the #sasatinnie honey peach nourishing and brightening sheetmask.  This mask contains peach leaf extract and ginseng root extract to energise and nourish the skin.
The mask is a thicker #cotton with a faint fruity peach scent. The fit was a bit big around my chin, but it has plenty tabs to adjust and sat fine once on.
I kept it on for about 30 minutes and it was still soaked with #essence. My face was left well moisturised and the beginnings of a pimple on my cheek looks less enraged now 😡!

Tonight is the Banila Co Miss Flower and Mr Honey hydrogel sheetmask. This mask is for moisturising and nourishing.
The mask is a pain in the neck to put on 😕. It's in two pieces so I put the bottom half on first and it kept slipping and sliding all over the place before I could get the top half on. I had to lie down completely still for about ten minutes to stop it all sliding off! 
I kept it on for about 30 minutes and it was pretty much drying out by then. My skin looked quite oily once I removed it and was still tacky to the touch after ten minutes. I think this might have been too moisturising for my skin type as it made my pores look more noticeable 😐

tonight is the Banila Co itRadiant lace hydrogel sheetmask.  This mask is for nourishing, it contains #propolis and #chrysanthemum with white flower complex to help improve skin condition. The mask was so much easier to apply than the Miss Flower and Mr Honey one. I uploaded a pic to my story to show you the fit. It was nicely soaked in essence but not overly dripping. I didn't notice a fragrance.  I kept it on for about 30 minutes and it was pretty much drying out by then. Mt skin looked well moisturised and a lot brighter than before. I will definitely be looking for more of these.

tonight I'm trying the #mybeautydiary 2 step Europe clarifying pack with a black rose brightening mask and a rose honey hydrating gel.  This was a lovely thin mask like other My Beauty Diary masks, and had a nice faint rose scent. Was saturated in essence and still lots left in the packet. Kept on for about thirty minutes, and my skin looked reasonably brighter and the essence absorbed quite quickly onto my skin.  At this point I applied the Rose Honey Refining Gel, I used half the pack as there's quite a lot. I couldn't notice a smell to it. Quite thick and sticky. Left me noticeably brighter and dried down matte but tacky.

Tonight I'm trying the Nature Republic argan aqua gel mask, which came in the most recent @bitsandbobsofbeauty mask bag.  This hydrogel mask came in two parts and fit quite snugly, didn't slip around once on. There's a pic in my stories of the fit. Had a generic soapy fragrance that lasted throughout. Kept on for about thirty minutes, face felt well moisturised without looking shiny. I could see myself reaching for this a lot during this cooler time of year.  I've been #reading A Clash Of Kings by #georgerrmartin. Slowly making my way through this series, I'm enjoying them more than I thought I would but I often find that with fantasy novels, I expect not to like them but end up wanting more!!

This is the Maskingdom Ultimate Truffle Wine Mask from the Red Riding Hood Truffle mask set I purchased earlier in the year.
This is made from natural Japanese silk, which is thicker than I was expecting. Containing wine and white truffle, its aim is to make skin radiant and smooth. There is a ton of essence in the pack, and it's one of the best fitting masks I've tried for a while.
Kept on for about forty minutes, and my skin looked reasonably brighter, the redness has definitely faded and skin feels soft and well moisturised. The essence absorbed quickly and didn't leave my skin tacky. 
I've been #reading The Woodcutter by #katedanley. It's a modern fairy tale, a bit of a mash up of tales. It takes me a long time to read a book on the Kindle, I just don't enjoy the experience the same as a book. This book was okay, but I felt we were dropped into a world I should have known about and I didn't enjoy the short chapters as couldn't get into the story 😑.

My first sheetmask of 2017!! I actually took this home with me to my parents to use over the holidays but didn't have the time, I now have two huge pimples and thought this sounded ideal!
Innisfree Skin Solution Total Care Mask is a thick unbleached cotton mask that will brighten skin and reduce wrinkles. It contains niacinamide, green tea, and camellia leaves, which sounds nice and calming for my active pimples.
Kept on for about forty five minutes whilst I organised my sheet mask stash by date 👍👏👌!! My skin looked reasonably brighter and my jawline less irritated. Skin also feels well moisturised. The essence absorbed quickly and didn't leave my skin tacky. 

tonight it's the Mirum Collagen Real Nature Mask Pack. My skin has been so dry lately with all this cold weather so this hydrating mask sounded ideal. 🐳 This was a thick cotton mask with a decent fit and well saturated in essence, no extra in the pack to slather on 😞. It smelled faintly floral/soapy and felt quite refreshing. 🐳 Kept on for about thirty minutes, and my skin looked reasonably brighter and well moisturised. The essence absorbed quickly and didn't leave my skin tacky. This was quite nice and is quite cheap too. 🐳 I've been #reading A Feast For Crows by #georgerrmartin. Getting through the series now, but this one wasn't my favourite, I felt it went in a bit too long with unnecessary side plots.

The Holika Holika Juicy Mask Sheet in Tea Tree claims to be for spot control!
This was a thicker mask, smells strongly of tea tree and fit reasonably well. There was quite a lot of tea tree essence left in the pack.
Kept on for about twenty minutes before it started drying out. and my skin looked reasonably brighter and well moisturised. The essence absorbed quickly and didn't leave my skin tacky. This was quite nice and is quite cheap too, I like these for a quick mask!
I've been #reading Night School by #leechild. I used to really love this series, but I really struggled with this one, the story was so meh and didn't hold my interest at all. The first five or six Jjack Reacher books were amazing compared to this, I might just go back and read them rather than buy anymore of these new ones.

tonight it's the JejuBaram lemon brightening snow capsule mask. Is it just me or does lemon snow sound really enticing? 🍋
This was a cotton mask, the material reminded me of the LJH tea tree mask. It fits ok with plenty of slits but it doesn't adhere very well. It also has all these white bits over it which must be the lemon snow capsules?? It smelled like a cleaning product but wasn't too strong or irritating. 🍋
Kept on for about thirty minutes, and my skin felt cooler and looked brighter but I still needed a moisturiser. The essence absorbed quickly and didn't leave my skin tacky. 💀
I've been #reading Deadinburgh by #markwilson. Zombies in Edinburgh?? How could I not read this!! It was actually quite enjoyable and I wasn't expecting the way it ended, I think there are a few books in this series so might be tempted to continue!
💀

This is a thin mask, quite soaked in a jelly type essence. I've used this before and do like it, but the fit is a bit odd! Kept on for forty minutes and my skin did feel plumper and well moisturised.
🍯
I've been #reading Deadly Communion by #franktallis. The fifth in the Liebermann series set in Vienna, I got this and the 6th for Christmas! This time Liebermann and Inspector Rheinhardt are on the trail of a sexual predator who has an unusual way of killing his victims. I love the references to early psychiatry and psychology, and there's always an appearance by Freud!

Tonight I'm using The Face Shop Sparkling Apple sheet mask this contains sparkling water and apple extract to keep skin clear and moisturised.
🍏
This is a thicker cotton mask, it only comes with 17ml of essence, soaked well but no extra. I love the packaging, and how it was rolled up inside, space saver!! 🍏
Smells like candied apples with a large fit. Kept on for thirty minutes and my skin looked brighter, red marks on my chin less irritated and the essence absorbed quickly without a tacky finish.

Tonight I'm trying the Banila Co tea party English Breakfast Tea mask for Firming, feel composure like taking a rest with a cup of tea, um yes please!! ☕ This is a thin mask, fairy soaked in a generic soapy smelling essence that I could smell throughout. Fit fairly well and stayed in place for a good 30 minutes. ☕ My skin felt reasonably moisturised, not convinced it did any "firming" though. I was a bit disappointed it didn't smell like tea 😒, if it had I'd probably repurchased, but the soapy smell a bit too strong for me.

tonight I'm trying the Su-man Facial Glow Rejuvenating Mask. This is probably the most expensive mask I own, £42 for a box of four which works out at £10.50 per mask.
🌾
The is a bio cellulose mask that contains a whopping 30ml of essence! It's infused with nourishing ingredients like orchid extract, brown algae and sea water mineral concentrate and fermented in coconut water.
🌾
This mask is juicy and I kept it on a good 40 minutes. My skin looked brighter and really hydrated. It also helped sooth the redness around my jaw where I'd been picking at spots - naughty I know 😳

tonight I'm trying the Nohj Aqua Soothing Mask in Honey, mmm honey 😋 .
This is a tencel mask that is saturated in a cooling and refreshing essence - no extra in the pack though 😞. I couldn't detect any fragrance, not even a whiff of honey 😢. The fit was okay just a bit big around my chin.
I kept it on a good 30 minutes. My skin looked brighter and really calm around my chin where my breakout is. I really liked this mask and I'd be interested in trying more form this range, I do wish it smelled like honey tho!

This mask contains Squalene, Collagen and hyaluronic acid. It was saturated in a moisturising essence, I couldn't detect a fragrance and it fit quite well. 🔘 I kept it on a good 40 minutes and my skin felt really moisturised after, tacky for about ten minutes and I didn't need a night cream, just topped off with a sleeping pack. 🔘

Tonight I'm trying the Leaders Teatree Relaxing Renewal Mask - my first Leader's mask!!

This mask aims to reduce oil and calm irritation. It has a strong tea tree smell and was saturated in essence.
I kept it on for 30 minutes and my skin felt really oily after 😞, I wasn't expecting the essence to be so greasy. I waited about half an hour before topping off with a moisturiser but I probably didn't need to, not what I was expecting from an oil controlling mask. 

This mask helps soothe tired skin and makes it feel soft and supple whilst moisturising.
🔘
Its a thick cotton mask that smells kind of minty and floral. Quite big around my forehead and chin. I kept it on for 30 minutes and my skin looked brighter and felt moisturised. Essence absorbed quickly and didn't leave a tacky finish. This was on okay mask for the price, not as bad as what I expected.

I started using this a couple months ago, I limit myself to once a week as I do use other exfoliators and I don't want to over-exfoliate. At first the smell was really off-putting as it's quite a strong fishy/burning rubber smell but it quickly dissipates. I use about 3-4 pumps on a cotton pad then swipe all over focusing on my t-zone and chin then leave for 20 minutes before continuing my routine. I find it's helped most at making the pores on my forehead and nose look cleaner, therefore less noticeable.

I've been using this weekly for about two months now. I mix it with a cleansing oil now to get it to the right consistency. I used to mix it with toner but I still found it a bit too scrubby, I find it works best mixed with the cleansing oil as the sugar particles really melt on your skin and aren't too harsh. My skin is left super soft after this, its such a treat to use this - I think once a week is more than enough otherwise I'd risk over exfoliating. I like the smell, unusually it's a lemon/citrus scent rather than a brown sugar scent, but it's fresh and clean, not overpowering.

This is my favourite cleansing oil for removing makeup. It's orange in colour because of the astaxanthin and has a slight fragrance, I can't put my finger on it but it's nice in comparison to the olive oil scent of DHC which I wasn't keen on. One pump of this was enough to remove my makeup and sunscreen and it massages in really well before I wash it off. It emulsifies into a milky white colour and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean. This bottle lasted me ages since I only used one pump at a time, so although a bit expensive it does last a long time.

This cleanser is an orange colour as it contains Astaxanthin. A little goes a long way as when you add water it builds up into a really thick luxurious foam that changes to a paler orange/white colour. It is a lovely morning cleanser or second cleanse after removing makeup. I have combination skin and I didn't find it drying. It did have a tendency to leave skin squeaky clean if you use too much, which is why a little is better. It's quite a small tube for the price but because I used it sparingly every morning it lasted a good few months. I didn't experience any side effects from using this.
