Alongside my normal skincare routine, I like to incorporate a face mask every once in a while to really tackle any skin problems I might be having. When my skin is particularly bad I normally try to do this once or twice a week to target the problem and try to get rid of it as quickly and effectively as possible. There are plenty of face masks on the market, some of which are incredibly expensive. Whilst they may work, I am always reluctant to fork out a lot of money on a product that may or may not be effective for my skin type. However, I have found a few face masks that really work for me and are relatively inexpensive.
Now Iroha Nature isn’t a brand that was particularly on my radar, however, after having some skin complaints they very kindly sent across some of their most popular face masks and eye pads to try. I haven’t tried them all yet but in the last week or so I have tried both the Antioxidant Vitamin C face mask and the Green Tea purifying facial mask. I have to say I was really impressed with both of them! The antioxidant face mask isn’t like anything I’ve tried before. It’s an intensive mask for your whole face and when you remove it from the packaging, it’s packed with an antioxidant serum that is perfect to brighten and balance dull skin. The purifying facial mask is a peel off mask that smells of Green Tea. This one was incredibly relaxing and gave my skin a really good deep clean. This packet is also full to the brim and has 3 uses inside which is even better value for money!
As soon as I saw the L’oreal trio of face masks advert I knew I had to try them! There are 3 different masks for 3 different skin concerns. Glow, Detox and Purity. For my skin type I decided to go for detox as this mask is said to be enriched with charcoal to draw out any impurities and to work deep into the pores. It certainly does that. This mask is incredibly satisfying to watch. As soon as it starts drying you can see it really focus in on any pores or blemishes you have. It’s quite terrifying and gross really but on the other hand you can really see it working. This pot is also said to last for 10 applications which is perfect for £7.99.
I have been a massive fan of the Oatifix mask for a long time now. The consistency and texture is very different to the other face masks mentioned. It’s quite a thick texture so isn’t the easiest to apply to your skin, however, it smells absolutely divine! It’s packed full of Oatmeal, Banana and Illipe Butter – it literally smells good enough to eat. This mask is incredibly nourishing for dry or damaged skin. The ingredients leave your skin feeling very soft and smooth and the formula is really calming and gentle so this would suit sensitive skin as well. The pots look really small for £6.95 but I can easily get 5 applications out of one tub. Plus, if you save up 5 tubs you can return them to store and get a free face mask!
Have you tried any of these out? What are your favourite face masks of all time?
