I’ve got another one of those lush foodie face masks from Superdrug, and this is my favourite out the three that I’ve used.
This is the Avocado and Oat Facemask. A pale green fresh fragrant facemask containing Avocado, Oatmeal and natural clay, and it’s so creamy! I apply this to my skin after cleansing and relax for 15-20 minutes or at least until the mask has dried on my face.
Removing the mask I like to wet it and massage over my face until it’s all loosened up again, then remove it completely with a face cloth or muslin cloth. I feel like it’s giving me that extra exfoliation. Afterwards my skin feels so clean, fresh and soft and moisturised, and it looks really smooth with a bit of a glow too. This is obviously not a face mask to sleep in for an overnight treatment, but one that I’d use a couple of times a week for sure.
Right now in Superdrug, the Avocado and Oat Facemask is on offer for £3.29, and when you purchase 3 selected skincare products you get a Bubble face mask FREE! Have a click HERE.
Hey there my lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa…
I’ve got another one of those super gorgeous face masks from the Superdrug own brand range of We love Facemasks.
The face mask I’m sharing today is the Charcoal Facemask. It’s a deep cleansing mud mask that smells nothing like other charcoal products I’ve used, this smells fresh and delicious!
It’s thick and feels creamy in texture and cold to the touch too so I knew that I was going to love this mask, a lot. It did not disappoint me either. I applied the mask after cleansing my face, using a flat foundation brush and left it to dry on my skin for about 20 minutes. After the 20 minutes I splashed my face with warm water and massaged the mask on my face to soften it, then removed it completely with my face cloth and dried my face. My skin felt clean, and a little tight to be honest, although not dry just smooth and refreshed. This is a mask that I shall continue to use at night after cleansing I think, then add my oils etc. Containing natural ingredients, all these face masks are suitable for Vegans and all packaging is recyclable too!
There are 6 of these face masks in the range and I do want to try the other three that I don’t have, and at just £4.99 and a “Buy 1 get 2nd half price mix and match” offer in Superdrug at the moment, it’s the ideal time to stock up methinks. You will find the Charcoal Face Mask HERE.
I love me a face mask, a face mask of any kind pampers my skin especially at this time of year. It’s freezing cold so the central heating is on which leaves my skin really dry and dehydrated. So today I thought that I would share with you a delicious face mask that’s jam-packed full of fruity goodness (actually Superdrug said “gooey goodness”) yes it’s gooey alright but it’s also very fruity too! I’ve been sent three Superdrug own brand of Kitchen Facemasks, the first one I’m sharing is the Blueberry Jam face mask.
This really is a delicious sweet-smelling just like jam face mask. Very yummy, I almost want to spread some on a scone and add a bit of whipped cream! But I resisted the temptation and applied it to my face after cleansing. I used a flat foundation brush to apply the mask to my face, it really is quite gloopy but it had a heat to it as I was applying it, the kind of sensation you get from a self heating face mask. I left the mask on my face for 15 minutes, I could smell the sugary sweetness. After the 15 minutes I added a little bit of warm water and massaged the mask on my face. I could feel the sugar within it providing some gentle exfoliation. I removed the mask with a face cloth and warm water, my skin look rosy pink and glowing, felt really soft, refreshed and clean! This really is quite a lovely “on a budget” face mask to use a couple of times a week. It’s also an environmentally friendly product too, being vegetarian and vegan friendly and all packaging is recyclable too! Pop along to your local Superdrug or go to Superdrug online HERE.
Hello beauties, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.
So a while ago I did a small shop in Wilko and purchased some products from the wonderful Essence brand. There are a couple of products that I got that have really stood out for me and one of them being the Camouflage 2 in 1 foundation and concealer.
At just £3.80 for 30ml of product it’s a bargain. It’s a squeezy tube too which I love. I’ve not used a foundation-concealer product before so I was looking forward to using this when I got it home, but it has been sitting on my dressing table waiting for the less sunny and warm weather to arrive so that I could put away the lightweight foundations and BB Creams. I actually got around to wearing this last weekend and I found it to be fantastic! I applied it using a Real Techniques Buffing Brush then used a damp sponge to press over my skin once I applied the foundation. I took the product over my eyes paying more attention to the inner corners where I’m a bit dark. For me I think that this is a medium to full coverage, and it covered all the issues I have with my skin. I get redness on my left cheek, it was covered, I get redness around my nose, it was covered, I get redness on my chin, it’s covered by this foundation, and I also don’t need to use powder to set it. If you prefer a lighter application then apply using a damp sponge rather than a brush, and that’s just my opinion of course. I also noticed after wearing for a while that it doesn’t settle into lines or cake under my eyes. It’s long-lasting and it doesn’t transfer to the collar of my clothes or my baby Granddaughters clothes when I’m squishing her! For me, this is a fabulous face base product, one that I shall be using a lot and will be a definite re-purchase.
If you don’t have a Wilko near you, you can purchase this and all Essence products online HERE.
Hello welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.
I’ve got a couple more GOSH Copenhagen products for you, they were sent to me for reviewing here on EAB.
Shall I start with the brush you see before you? It’s the Mix and Fix Blender Brush. This flat-headed face brush is unique I feel. I’ve never seen such a brush before, I’ve seen many flat-headed brushes but not one with a “well” in the middle! The brush itself is 100% synthetic hair so is vegan friendly. So why is there a hole or well in the centre of the brush? This brush is perfect to use for mixing foundation shades or to add a facial oil to foundation. You simply place the products you want to mix together into the hole then apply to the face as usual. I actually trialed the brush by mixing my foundation (from another brand, I don’t have a GOSH one) with my GOSH Lumi Drops and applied to my face. The brush is great for blending, and with a head that is small enough to get around the contours of the eyes and soft enough for under the eyes it leaves my skin looking great with a flawless coverage of foundation, and it doesn’t feel like it’s scratching my skin at all, also another plus, there is no brush hair fallout either while I was applying to my face or when I washed it either. This is a really great addition to my brush collection, and one that will get used rather a lot I suspect. You can get this and more fantastic GOSH products from Superdrug on the High Street or online HERE.
The last GOSH Copenhagen product I’m sharing with you is one for the eye brows. I’m not really an eye brow person to be honest, but I’m learning and Brow Shape and Fill is really helping me to get on track. It’s a double ended product, with a retractable pencil at one end and powder with sponge applicator at the other end. The pencil end is for shaping the brows, I found it to be a hard pencil while I was applying it but not at all difficult to work with. It’s a slanted shaped pencil which helps with the application using those light feathery types strokes! Filling in is really easy with the powder and sponge tip applicator, it completely covers the odd grey eyebrow hairs that are appearing more regularly now. You can apply the powder as light or as heavy as you like to get the coverage you want. I comb through my brows with a spoolie after applying to distribute the colour evenly. The GOSH Brow Shape and Fill is great for those days when you need to be quick with your makeup, using just the powder to fill in the brows which is in fact how I like to use this product. Get the GOSH Brow Shape and Fill from Superdrug on the High Street or online HERE.
