Face Masks

I love a good face masks, ever since I was about eleven I've used them, the one pound ones from Primark of course, the ones that went on like a gel and peeled of like glue (my favourite part). But now, I have grown my collection quite a bit and become more interested in there benefits. May interest grew, mainly because of the tantrums my skin likes to throw from time to time, and for those times I have my  three favourites.

The 'new face' face mask// Now I'm almost 100% sure that you've heard on this mask but if not its the, Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. This mask has a weird consistency  it resembles some sort of jam, which just feels wrong. It also has a slightly tingly feel to it, however not too much that it's unbearable. But the best thing about this mask is how it makes your skin look; brightened and basically like a 'new face'.

The hydrating face mask// Recently I have been ill, and my skin has decided to shrivel up, so I'm in need  of some serious hydration. This is where the Origins Drink up Intensive Overnight mask comes in handy. I use this about twice a week, depending on my skins needs. I use a generous amount all over my skin, and leave it on overnight, instead of any treatments or other moisturisers. It makes my skin feel plump and juicy-best feeling. 

The deep clean mask// The Super Facialist by Una Brennan Tea Flower Deep Clean mask, this one I like to use as a 'quick' fix, for when my skin is looking clogged and a bit too spotty for my liking. This makes my skin feel great straight after using it, so I love using it in the morning or before going out in the night. And plus its really affordable- Always a plus!

So there you have it my top three masks, any recommendations?

Pamper evening: Christmas Eve

Every Christmas Eve I think it's important to treat yourself and pamper yourself for hours, with your best skincare bits.

Hair// this section is first always, I start by brushing my hair and then wash my hair with the percy and reed volumising shampoo and conditioner, and the I pop a moisturising hair mask in and for this i'm using the L'Oreal Paris Ever Riche nourishing intense mask, which if never used before so fingers crossed it's a good'un. 

Skin// Now this is where I really like to treat myself, I start with a double cleanse using my Emma Hardie cleansing balm to start and then my origins cleansing milk to take any make up the balm may of missed. After that I like to use a mask or treatment I have two options for this, either the Super Facialist tea flower deep clean mask or the Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips, I went for the strips. After I take the pore strips off I move onto moisturising with my Make a Difference plus from Orgins and my Pai Rosehiop oil, along with a dab of eye cream from Una Brenan and a bit of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream on the lips.

Body// With this section I like to keep it simple with my Soap&Glory Scrub and a slab of my gingerbread body butter from the body shop (literally smells like heaven).

So thats how I'll be spending my Christmas even, how about you?
