ANNABELL'S REVIEW OF 5 FACE MASK'S
I'm actually not 100% sure but I think I've got combination to oily skin, but also quite sensitive skin ;) with breakouts. So in this post I want to show you some of my 5 favourite face mask and give you some information about them. Maybe you'll find a new product which could help your skin needs or some of the masks are familiar to you already. :)
A while back we've been invited to a launch of the new body range from REN, where we've been also able to speak to one of their experts who gave us tips and recommended some REN cosmetic products. Not long after we all received a little parcel with chosen products from the REN expert - to try out and see if it will help each of our individual skin care needs.
One of the products I’ve got send was this lovely Evercalm Rescue Mask. I have used their Evercalm moisturiser before and loved it, so I was very keen to try out another product from this range. This face mask quickly became one of my all time favourites. The texture is lovely, I usually leave the mask on for about 15-20 min and after that my skin is left feeling wonderfully smooth, the redness around my nose almost disappears and my T-Zone seems to be less shiny and the face in general feels super moisturised.
I often take this mask with me on my travels to restore my skin after exposing it to the sun or bad weather, air condition from the plane journey or the hotel room or just simply as a soothing treatment.
This Dermalogia Recovery mask was actually recommended by one of our lovely Guest blogger, Model Nicola Achilleas. After reading her recommendations here thoroughly I thought this sounds like a skincare product which I have to have! And there you go, I purchased it online and since then I use it only 1-2 a months, as the price is quite high, so this mask is more like a special treat for me ;) hehe. Just a little note about the colour, its a very light orange so when you apply it, your face turns into a orange ball ;) just kidding - its just an odd colour as normally face masks are light colours or greyish but I actually don`t mind it as no one ever sees me whilst I have it on. ;)
It really does what the name says:
"Ultra-replenishing masque helps rescue stressed, ageing skin. This revitalizing masque contains powerful, concentrated vitamins A, C, E and F to help skin recover from damage that leads to skin ageing, while Vitamin A helps increase elasticity and moisture content, making it the ultimate remedy for dulling, dry, dehydrated, lackluster, photo-damaged skin." www.dermalogica.co.uk
Neal's Yard Remedy - White Tea Enriching Facial Mask
This white tea facial mask by Neal's Yard Remedy has been recommended to me after I have seen a therapist for a facial at their Treatment rooms in Covent Garden, London. I have to say that facial was very very good and super relaxing, I'll be back for sure. However when it comes to natural skincare products I'm often a bit sceptical as I never know if my skin reacts to any of those natural ingredients. But this mask is great for me, my face skin looks brighter and firmer and feels very refreshed.
"Detoxifying and antioxidant-rich, this award winning facial mask nurtures and cleanses dry and sensitive skin. With refreshing white tea and purifying kaolin clay, it’s an intensive weekly treatment to help plump your skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restore your skin’s natural moisture levels.
- For dry and sensitive skin
- Gently cleansing and detoxifying
- With age-defying, antioxidant-rich white tea" www.nealsyardremedies.com
This Hungarian brand was introduced to me whilst being on a job in Budapest for a TV-commercial. The make up artist uses Omorovicza products herself (she had gorgeous skin and didn't look her age at all) and also includes some of their products for prepping the models skin. How amazing is that? Often make-up artists don't even clean and prep your face before applying all the foundation etc. but she did care a lot and highly recommended this brand to me.
Those products are just amazing, there are quite pricey but after trying out so many different brands of various price categories I think I finally found a brand which my face skin loves and doesn't get irritated from.
Much more than a deep-cleansing facial treatment, this calcium and magnesium-rich mask clears congested pores and brightens tone as it draws out impurities. Moor mud purifies the skin without leaving it taut.
- Deeply cleanse and nourish the skin with Hungarian Moor mud, rich in calcium and magnesium carbonate.
- Draw out toxins and impurities while naturally absorbing pore-clogging oil with white clay.
- Leave skin firmer, more supple and younger-looking as Healing Concentrate™ delivers minerals deep into the skin. www.omorovicza.com
MALIN + GOETZ Detox Face Mask
This (MALIN + GOETZ) detox face mask is just brilliant. I usually use this mask whilst being under the shower as it works it magic in only 5 min. How cool is this? When you are in a rush, just layer a good amount onto your face and in no time the creamy almond sense texture turns into a soft bubbly cloud ;) Sounds funny but that's true, just get a tester and see if you experience the same, hehe. I do love this mask as it works so quickly and really leaves my skin super plum and moisturised.
