Face masks!


I’m really into face masks at the moment. And have been searching for the right one perfect for me!
And the other day I was in the mood for a little pampering and decided I would use a face mask/scrub from a packet to give my face a little loving. I have only ever used a mask like this from a packet once before and it burnt my face! They say that the burning sensation is the mask working to remove all the dirt and impurities from your skin, I guess I had a lot to clean! However the mask didn’t last long, I washed it straight off and the rest went into the bin…
I have been rather cautious about trying another.
However this mask I put on the other day wasn’t as painful, infact there was no pain at all.
I guess maybe my face was cleaner this time round?
Anyway I spread the mask onto my face using a circular motion and then just left it on for a few minutes before washing it off.

Scary/ugly photo ahead!


I then used my usual Cetaphil moisturiser on my face and I tried this Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Eye cream around my eye area.


The mask left my face smelling great! Like coconuts. Except it felt very sticky and looked a bit oily and shiny on my face, this lasted the whole day, after washing my face twice.
I didn’t really like the feel during use or after enough to repurchase this exact scrub however I would be open to trying other flavoured masks by ‘montagne jeunesse’
The Estee Lauder eye cream left the skin around my eyes shiny/glossy and I didn’t particularly like the feel of it, I could feel there was something on my eyes and it didn’t seem to soak into the skin or anything.

Has any one tried these masks or scrubs in packets?

I would love to try a mud mask. If anyone has any suggestions of any good ones?
Or anything they have tried, I’d love to hear about them.

I am going to be sampling the ‘Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask from the body shop in the next coming week so stay tuned for that.

    I tried some other masks from montagne jeunesse. Just for fun, felt pleasant but nothing super special. I should say that I tried chocolate one (I remember) and on face it smells so strange I couldn’t sit with it long and I just washed it. Didn’t smell like chocolate, at least for me:D

      Okay, yeah I just do them for a bit of pampering fun.
      I’m going to try the chocolate one!! Why couldn’t you leave it on your face long? Was it because of the smell?

        Yes, because of smell. Couldn’t stand it. I tried with bluberries(i think). The mask is pinky-violet with shimmer. I didn’t understood what it does but it looked funny:D

    I’ve used some of those packet masks before. I recommend the Michael Todd face masks. All of them are amazing. They do a mud one as well. I have a mid mask by ten o six & Palmers & they are alright.
