FAVOURITE FACE MASKS

Face masks are the ultimate pamper session must and I love to try different face masks all the time!

Below is a collection of my absolute favourite face masks that tackle different skin issues and are also at different price points.

To apply all my facemasks I use a basic flat foundation brush I picked up at Boots for a pound or so. It really helps even application and prevents any oils or dirt from your fingers interacting with this skin-clarifying process!

Every ‘how to use’ is taken straight from the face mask recommendation. I follow the amount of time to leave the face mask on, but I only really do one face mask a week and it’s always a different one.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay Mask (£11)

How to Use:

  • 1-2 times a week
  • 10-15 mins

This is by far my favourite mask ever! It’s perfect for acne-prone skin, smells gorgeous and you can see results as soon as you take it off.

I usually use quite a generous layer of this all over my face. But, sometimes I want to use other masks on other parts of my face, so I sometimes concentrate this on my forehead.

The tea tree can be quite strong, so I tend to only keep it on for about 10 minutes, but that is definitely plenty to take effect!

If there’s one face mask you want to try from this whole list, this is the one I recommend!

TBS Tea Tree

Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment (£42)

How to Use:

  • 1-3 times a week
  • 20-30 mins

Okay firstly, I haven’t got the coin for Glamglow! Luckily, I was gifted their ‘Multimasking Kit’ which gave me a small sample size of their masks, of which I’ve only used 3 (and gifted away the Youth one).

This is a good alternative spot treatment mask. It dries quite instantly and becomes quite tight so can be uncomfortable, especially for 30 mins! However, it really does clarify the skin and pull out the dirt. My skin is clearer immediately after applying the mask as well.

I usually use this mask for 15-20 mins as I can’t leave it on for longer comfortably.

GG Supermud

Glamglow Flashmud Brightening Treatment (£42)

How to Use:

  • 3 days in a row and then 2-3 times a week
  • 20 mins+

This mask is incredibly brightening and does its job so well! The mask is texturised like an exfoliant/scrub and it is recommended that it is exfoliated into dry skin. The mask then dries quite quickly and is comfortable on the skin.

I usually only use this mask on my chin and any areas where I have some darkness and it works wonders. I also haven’t used this mask 3 days in a row as recommended, yet have had some amazing results so I really recommend!

GG Flashmud

Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment (£16)

How to Use:

  • 2-3 times a week
  • 10-20 mins
  • Can be used overnight and in-flight

This has got to be my favourite mask from Glamglow that I’ve tried! This goes on completely clear, like a moisturiser, and instantly quenches your skin’s thirst. It settles into the skin nicely and, having used this before a shower and overnight, can say with confidence that this hydrates the skin amazingly! Not only is your skin hydrated but it is also super soft and looks healthy.

Luckily, Boots sell a smaller 15g pot, which I’ve linked, which is at a slightly more reasonable price but you will have to use it sparingly!

GG Thirstmud

L’Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask (£5.99)

How to Use:

  • 2-3 times a week
  • 10-15 mins

This mask is really good for getting the brightened glow, without having to spend too much money!

This mask works really well to brighten the skin, though I find I cannot leave it on for more than 10 mins as it is really strong on the skin and the smell is a little unbearable! Having said that though, it does a great job at giving a natural glow to the skin, but have found more regular use really does bring better results.
