Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting face mask

Is your skin a little dry? Perhaps dehydrated and a little lack luster? If you answered yes to either or both of those questions then this sheet mask from Indeed Labs maybe just what your looking for. The Hydraluron Moisture Boosting face mask is basically a gallon of water for your face. It uses 3D timed release technology (what ever that is?) of hyaluronic acid to give your skin a moisture boost that will last 24 hours.

The sheet mask is not pretty but its lovely and cooling on the skin. You sit back, relax and let your skin soak up all that lovely HA. If you do want to move around with the face mask on it does cling well enough for you to do so.

After I took the face mask off it was pretty dry which was a brilliant sign that my skin had absorbed the product, there was also quite a bit left in the sachet which I squeezed out and massaged into my face and neck.

My skin afterwards felt so plump and hydrated as well as looking glowing. This lasted for a good 24 hours and the next morning my make up looked so much better. These masks are perfect in preparation for a special occasion, if you need a bit of a pick up from being run down etc or would be amazing on holiday post flight.

I managed to pick these up from TK Maxx for a bargain price of £5.99. You can usually find them in Boots but the RRP is £19.99, all though they do have 1/3 off at the moment making them £13.33. Even at £20.00 if, I was off on holiday or wanted them for a special occasion I would certainly happily pay full whack for them. You can get from Boots by visiting HERE

I seem to loving skin care at the moment and have some more skincare products that are due to be tested after my current moisturiser has ran out. I’m currently using the Good Things Manuka Honey one which I’ve loved for the past few months and you can read all about it HERE

Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser

Regardless of your skin type you need moisture, yes even if your oily, moisturising is still an important step in any skin care routine. If you skip this step your skin will dry out and in turn start to produce more oil and contribute to blocked pores as well as breakouts. While the thought of lathering your face with a thick night cream might send you running for the hills and have you worried about break outs well fear not. The Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser may just be the answer to your needs.

GOOD THINGS MANUKA HONEY MOISTURISE

This lightweight deeply hydrating mosituriser contains royal jelly and beeswax. Bee venom helps to boost collagen while propolis and manuka boast antibacterial properties. It doesn’t contain any of the following nasties: mineral oil, parabens or sodium laureth sulphate as well as being suitable for vegetarians. Obviously if you are allergic to bee stings you would need to avoid this but if, like me you adore the smell of honey you will love this.

The moisturiser has got the balance between being creamy but not too thick just right, I find its easily absorbed into the skin and leave my face feeling supple, hydrated and just a bit healthier. I slot this in my morning routine after I’ve cleansed and also in an evening after the usual double cleanse and tone. I’ve been using this now for around 10 months and I’ve re-purchased this every time its ran out as its so affordable and does what it says on the label.

GOOD THINGS MANUKA HONEY MOISTURISE

You can buy Good Things Manuka Honey moisturiser from Boots for £7.99 for 100ml. I have also been able to spot this in a few TKMaxx stores for just £3.99 so it really offers amazing value. The only thing which I dislike about this product is the face it comes in a cardboard box which is not needed and just a waste.

Origins Mix and Mask box

The face mask gods that are Origins have done an amazing collab with the wonderful Jane aka British Beauty Blogger. I’m a bit of a secret face mask junkie and love nothing more than slapping one on and having a quiet 15 minutes with a tea in silence and no one does a mask quite like Origins. I’m already a super fan of their Drink Up masks for a big moisture boost so when I saw Jane tweet about this for £20.00 I was on it quicker than Beyonce can say “single ladies” 

The box itself is fantastic value for money at £20.00 and comes with about £80ish worth of product plus a £10 voucher. Face mask by origins

Here is a run down of what you get

Maskimizer Skin Optimizing Mask Primer – This is a primer for your face mask. This wonderful light marine algae spritz is the perfect way to prep your skin to get the most from your face mask. I also like to use this when a clay mask has set but I fancy getting a little bit longer out of it, simply spritz all over and the clay will re-soften.

By all greens foaming deep cleansing Mask – Jane describes this as a green juice for the face. It contains green tea, spirulina and spinach in a clay base. Its starts off liquid then bubbles into a foam. Super strange but really gives the skin a deep clean and a boost.

Drink Up Intensive overnight mask – A hero product in my eyes. It really helps plump the skin and give some thirst quenching moisture.

GinZing peel off face mask – This bronze face mask promises to bring some ZING back into dull complexions. You peel this off your face after it has dried which my inner 6 year old loves. We all did the PVA glue on the hands thing didn’t we?

VitaZing SPF energy boosting moisturiser – I love a proper base and shy away from the lighter side of things so I am excited to try this to see if it can sway me. It is self-adjusting so there is no awkward picking the wrong shade here and it also had the added benefit of giving the face a radiant finish while protecting it with SPF 15.

Mask Pods – There are 4 little one time only mask pods, I LOVE these! Super cute and ideal to travel with. You get a Drink up 10 min mask, Clear Improvement mask, Out of trouble and Original Skin. There is something here for any problem days and to get your skin back to best.

I am so impressed with this box. I genuinely cannot wait to try some new products from Origins and spend the £10 voucher. The drink up mask will forever have my heart but I love the new Maskimizer as it feels so light and refreshing on the skin.

I really hope you’ve enjoyed seeing whats included in the Origins box, I know it sold out pretty fast! Latest in Beauty do some amazing boxes and I am hoping to get my grubby hands on the summer glamour box next.

Boots Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm

Cleansing is probably one the most important steps in my skin care routine, I can always tell if I’ve not done a good job removing all the make up and daily grime. In an evening I always double cleanse (Caroline Hirons you would be proud) firstly by using a balm or oil and secondly with the Avene Cleanance soap free cleanser.

I picked up the Boots Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm as it was super cheap and hoped that it was similar to the Liz Earle. I can’t link it as I can’t find it online which is super odd. 

It comes in a round white tub and you get a cloth too, for the price you really can’t grumble about the quantity you are getting. The product itself is quite hard and takes some warming up to melt into the skin. Hot cloth cleansing balm boots

The good news is that it works a dream when massaged into the face on dry skin, melting away the days make up. It does take some removing so used as part of a double cleanse routine is a must.

It does contain shea butter and beeswax so those who suffer with bad acne or already know shea is a no go will want to give this a miss. It doesn’t contain mineral oil or parabens. If you are very sensitive to fragrance then I’d use this cautiously but if removed properly should be ok.

For £8.99 you really can’t go wrong and it is something that I will be buy again. All thought the fact its no longer on the web makes me nervous. *Frantically typing email to Boots asking*

Have you tried this balm before?
