Hello My Loves
#HappyEaster I hope you've all had a fantastic Easter so far and have enjoyed spending time with your loved ones! I've been meaning to write this post up for a little while, I mean who doesn't love a good old face mask? There's something really special about applying your favourite face mask and slipping away into a little beauty zen. I especially love to pay attention to the scents, textures and results when looking for a new favourite mask and I've come up with a few for you that give fantastic results. I hope you enjoy this post my loves and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. You can also use my Social Media icons if you would like to get in touch a little quicker.
Made with Mediterranean Rose Clay, Canadian Willow Herb and exfoliating Jojoba beads, Origins Original Skin Mask is a great way to deep clean, whilst treating your skin at the same time. I love using this mask when my skin is looking a little tired and needs more than just a face mask! The Original Skin Mask features Jojoba beads, which makes this mask double up as an exfoliator. I leave the mask on for around 15 minutes and then splash some water on my face to start to loosen the mask. My skin is left looking refined and noticeably radiant, this is one to go for if you need to get your glow back.
The Apricot Gel Mask is a real gem and was founded by "Aunt IIcsi" who's family are associated with the finest Hungarian skin care. Each batch is made to order to capture the potency of the botanical actives within this mask making sure that maximum results can be achieved. This mask is intensely hydrating and is great for skin deficient of water and vitamins. Apricots are known for their high flavnoid and vitamin content, which feels cells and gives them the ability to do what they're supposed to (Keeping the skin luminous, smooth and full of vitality) I use this a few times a month as it's pretty potent, but it does such a good job of filling my skin back up with all the goodness it needs.
I first tried this whilst I was getting my make-up applied for the 2015 Cosmo Blog Awards. My lovely MUA kindly treated me to this gorgeous mask along with a little face massage to really prep my skin for my evening make-up. The difference in my skin was just insane, I honestly could not leave it! I know the lighting is suited to enhance the product, but it was just amazing! My skin prior to the mask was slightly red in places and a little flat looking and after 10 minutes it was plump, glowing and ready to party. The Goddess Skin Caly Mask features Spanish clay, Sweet Almond and Rose hip Oil and an array of essential oils and Frangipani to soothe the skin and remove impurities without drying. I always use this mask as a "Pick Me Up" If I'm lacking in hydration, or need a pre event boost then this is my secret weapon to plump, vibrant looking skin.
For me Origins totally have face masks down. I don't think I've ever tried an Origins mask that I have been disappointed with, but my long-term favourite is definitely the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. I try to apply this once/twice a week before bed and I wake up with bright & rejuvenated looking skin. Japanese Seaweed repairs the skin's barrier and helps to prevent future dehydration and signs of ageing. I've noticed my skin become slightly dryer during my early twenties and this is one product that really does help! It's nice to have a mask that you can also use overnight, and I find applying it before bed along with my favourite lip balm and pillow spray a really relaxing way to end the evening.
Overall, I think all these masks are great and have experienced great results from all of them. My current favourite is definitely the Goddess Skin Clay Mask, but you really can't go with an Origins mask either! If you're in the market for a treat and something a little more niche then I would 100% recommend checking out IIcsi masks, which can be found on Cult Beauty.
I would love to know what mask you would pick from the ones I have written about today!
Lots of Love
