On a Sunday night you will usually find me hiding in a sea of bubbles in the tub, red hot water, my latest obsession on Netflix (I’m on season 6 of Ru Paul’s Drag Race and I am totally addicted to it!) and a face pack working its magic into my tired skin ready for a week of work. But why should a beauty treatment just be for your face? There are some fabulous masks out there to treat your whole body and here are my favourites.
7th Heaven have been championing cruelty free products for over 30 years and produce one of the most recognised face masks in the UK. They are now global and have also launched a spa range to pamper the other areas of your body, not just your face.
Their face masks come in a number of different formulas such as peel off, self heating and sheet masks. I love sheet masks as I find they absorb better into my skin when it needs a moisture boost. The Dead Sea Sheet Masque soothes with pressed seaweed and revives with red algae. It also only takes 5 minutes so I can treat my skin whilst wandering around the house doing other things.
7th Heaven’s new Charcoal Peel Off Mask is much kinder to the skin to the charcoal masks that show all the blackheads being pulled from the pores. It contains witch hazel and birch leaf to calm the skin whilst the activated charcoal cleanses and draws out impurities. My skin feels squeaky clean after using this with a light flush that radiates health.
As I said they have masks for all your skin concerns including a foot mask and a hand mask. My favourite of the spa range is the finger mask to strengthen the nails and cuticles. I have written about my nail woes from when I had my gel polish removed. They are back to full strength but these little masks keep them in tip top condition for when I finally decide to put the gel polish back on.
I was sent a sample of the latest wonder mask from GlamGlow which I couldn’t not include here. It is the Powermud Dual Cleanse Treatment which has a mud to oil formula for deep cleansing with gentle results. It spreads on the skin beautifully and after being left for 10-15 minutes, turns into a cleansing oil when water is added giving a thoroughly deep cleanse without being too harsh. It delivers instant results making my skin feel soft and plump whilst regular use has seen a reduction in the redness I get around my cheeks and nose. It truly is a wonder product. a 50ml tub will cost you £42 but should last a while and the results are worth it.
You can buy it here.
I am also loving the Bannatyne Spa Balancing Face Mask which is a bargain at £15.99 for a 75ml tube. It contains Coenzyme Q10 that plumps the skin whilst the heavy aloe vera scent is totally relaxing and helps to soothe the skin. It really invigorates all the senses making it perfect for my bath time pamper when I need to take some time to myself and relax.
There you have it, a mask for all seasons so to speak, and my current favourites. What are yours?
