My Favourite Face Masks

befunky-collage

Every week I dedicate time to pamper myself with a face mask. I feel that it’s the perfect way to relax, whilst keeping my skin clear and hydrated.
As winter is still upon us, I decided to write a post to let you guys know which face masks I use to protect my skin from the cold weather.

The Body Shop – Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay Mask £11.00

I first tried this product a few months back and I can honestly say it’s still the best face mask I have ever used. This mask is perfect for problematic skin as it leaves your skin feeling cleansed and silky smooth.

It’s a lifesaver when you need to get rid of blemishes fast and it has saved my life many times. The product has strong Tea Tree aroma to it, which leaves your skin tingly, which I love. Unlike many other Tea Tree masks, this one doesn’t leave your skin feeling dried out as it leaves a natural glow to your skin and soothes any redness you may have.

Timeless Truth – Herbal Rejuvenation Immortelle Mask £4.90 per mask

This sheet mask is perfect for anybody having problems with dry or aging skin. The mask itself does look very weird when it’s applied, but I guarantee it works wonders.

After just one use, the mask softens your skin and leaves it feeling naturally moisturised. This mask is perfect for a pamper night or if you just need to refresh your skin after being out in the cold.

Garnier – Skin Active Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask £1.99

This tissue mask has been advertised a lot lately and I feel that it is a cheap and easy way to bring your skin back to life. For £1.99 you can’t go wrong.

The tissue mask does also look very strange when applied, but when it’s removed you instantly feel hydrated. It leaves your skin feeling fresh and ready to go. The mask states that it leaves your skin feeling moisturised for a week, in my opinion the moisture definitely lasts a few days, but I would still continue to hydrate my skin with creams etc. throughout the week.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review and I would love to hear which face masks you love!

My Tanning Favourites!

Spring is here, which means that Summer is right around the corner. The first thing I think of when I picture summer is being tanned – but if you don’t have a holiday planned then you might need a little help.

I personally hate the orange skin look, so it’s important for me to choose the right tan for my skin tone in order to keep it looking natural. Here are my four favourite tanning products – I hope you enjoy!

Most of you probably already know how important it is to exfoliate your skin before tanning in order to create an even toned look. But what I find even more helpful is using a product such as St Tropez Tan Enhancing Polish, which helps even out your skin tone, along with ensuring your tan lasts as long as possible. I would definitely recommend you use this product before tanning and I guarantee you will see a difference!

If you’re new to tanning I recommend  you try a product such as Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion. I use this product in the shade Light as I feel that it comes out dark enough for my skin colour in this shade. The product is very easy to apply as you can use your hands and apply it just as you would a normal moisturiser. One thing I adore about this product is the apricot scent which is left on your skin. If you don’t usually tan and fancy trying it out I would definitely recommend using this gradual tan.

This product is my all time favourite. The St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse is my go to tan when I want a sun kissed look. This tan pumps out into a foam which is best applied with a tanning mit. One thing I love about this product is that you are able to see where you are applying it, which allows you to create a perfectly even tan. This product is a bit pricey compared to other tans but it definitely lasts a lot longer than any other tanning product I have tried. If you fancy treating yourself to a luxury tan, I would definitely recommend you pick this one up.

Last but not least is the Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion. This product is similar to the Garnier Gradual Tan, but the texture is slightly less shimmery. I have always loved this product as it is perfect for a quick fix if you don’t have time to tan properly. I usually apply this product before I go to  bed, which allows me to wake up with a natural looking tan. This product is generally the cheapest out of the four mentioned, so if you’re looking for a quick and easy fix, this would be the right one for you.

Which tanning products do you use and what would you recommend I try next?
