My Favourite Face Masks

I'm pretty sure that every girl loves to use face masks. What's better than pampering yourself in the comfort of your own home? I have a few favourites in my stash and I thought I would share them here. I also filmed a video to go along with this post and you can check that out HERE or down below. One of my favourite masks is the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask because it is an excellent exfoliater (and I just really love the way it feels to peel off a mask). Another great exfoliater and brightener is the Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask which I think is a dupe for the Ren Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask. They smell the same, look the same and feel the same on the skin and I would say the end results are fairly similar (plus it's a fraction of the price). I also really love the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay because it is excellent at deep cleansing. This comes in powder form and can be mixed with water or cider vinegar. I would not recommend this mask for those with sensitive skin though, as it left my skin quite red and my skin is not too sensitive. 
When I need some hydration I turn to the Nuxe Creme Fraiche 24H Soothing and Rehydrating Mask. I usually leave this on over night (I do wake up feeling a bit greasy but I think it's worth it) and then wash it off in the morning. You can also leave it on for twenty minutes like a standard mask and then wipe it off but I usually go for overnight. I also really enjoy using the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Cleansing Balm as a mask. I only do this in the winter when my skin is extremely dry but it feels amazing and works really well at soothing dry skin and injecting a bit of moisture back in. Finally when I want to relax as well as pamper myself I use a facial sheet mask simply because they are fun to use and they force you to lay down for twenty minutes. My current favourites are from a Canadian company called MaskerAide. They have six types in their range and while I haven't tried all six I love the ones that I have tried. 

What are your favourite masks?

  9. I love me a great face mask but honestly haven't done one in years - the last time was probably during my teen years to be exact. Yikes!
