My Ultimate Face Masks.

I've always been a huge fan of face masks. Even when I was in my teens I would by packet masks from Superdrug and pamper myself with my friends. As I've grown older I prefer a good old tube mask so I thought what better opportunity than now, to share my favourites. 

As a teen and into my twenties I always had acne prone skin. Luckily I now only get the odd pimple every now and again but that doesn't stop me from using a trusty mask I've sworn by for years. Una Brennan's Tea Flower Deep Clean Pore Purifying Clay Mask (and breathe...) despite having the longest name in the world, is probably one of the best face masks I've ever tried. If I'm having a particularly oily day or it's coming up to the time of the month, I know this mask will solve all of my problems. If I apply this for 20-30 minutes and remove before bed, my skin will be left super soft and any cheeky pimples will be dried up for the morning. An absolute lifesaver.

I love the texture of clay masks and that's why my next one is also from the clay-based family. The Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque* is slightly more sophisticated version of the Una Brennan offering. This is a really thick, gooey, lovely clay mask that can be applied to damp and dry skin to leave you as soft as a baby's bottom. I adore the texture of this mask, hence the reason I needed a close up - this is the ultimate luxury clay mask, that I wouldn't be without.

Last but certainly not least is Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask. This is slowly making it's way back into my routine as the weather is getting cooler. I sometimes apply this as an overnight treatment (as someone in Origins explained it's the same as the overnight version just slightly lighter) this leaves my skin plump, hydrated and banishes any dry patches. It also smells like peaches which is always a plus.

What are your favourite face masks?

  1. I definitely want to try these, especially the Origins product.


  2. I absolutely love that Una Brennan mask! I really want to try their rose face mask next, I've heard that it's just as good :) xx

  3. The deep pore cleansing mask is on my list, my skin is horrendous and it doesn't seem to be getting any better :( so frustrating xxx

  4. Can I ask, what is the Origins one like? I don't want to get it if it's too much of a 'milky' formula! I'd rather have something that has a more clay-like texture x
