Aldi have brought out skincare products, Lacura is their skincare brand and they have a wide range of products and they are super affordable and work as well as leading brands. Some of the products they bring out are limited products that sell out quick! But some of their items they can be found for months after.

I came across this face mask as there has been a big hype around mud masks lately. As I do prefer sheet masks, once a month I do like to use a mud mask on my face as they really help to bring out all the impurities from the skin and make my face feel refreshed and clean! I like to use this mask with a face mask brush, it makes it so much easier to apply and is less messy!

Compared to other brands who sell face masks like this they can be ridicously priced and do the same thing, so for this only being £5.99 it is such a good product for the price and will save you a lot of money! Like most people I can not justify spending a fortune on skin care products no matter how good they! So finding affordable skin care products that actually work is amazing!

Review

This face mask instantly starts to draw out grease and dirt from the skin. It helps with breakouts too. It does tingle when applied onto spots. It applies nicely onto the skin, you apply this onto dry skin and leave it for 5-10 minutes. After this time you then wash the mask off your skin with warm water. It does recommend you can use this 1-2 times a week but like I said previously I like to use a mud mask once a month for a deep cleanse as using 1-2 times a week I can find it really drying on the skin. After removing this face masks, my skin feels so soft and smooth. Also my pores seem to be reduced!

I wouldn’t recommend using this face mask if you have sensitive skin as it has small granuals in it that help to expoliate the skin. So when taking this face mask off it can be a little rough on the skin. Apart from that I have no negative things to say about this face mask! It is such a good face mask, it is super affordable and it does what it claims to do! The packing of this product is nice and simple.

All in all I really do recommend this face mask, it is perfect for a pamper day and it really helps your skin. It makes it feel refreshed and clean and gets rid of all the impurities on your skin. For the amount of product you get for the price is amazing!

This face mask is from Aldi and is £5.99 and you can find it instores (in the middle isle)  or online here.

Have you tried this Lacura mud mask? Or any other of their products?

Garnier SkinActive – Moisture Bomb | Daily Moisturiser & Tissue Mask Review

Garnier SkinActive – Moisture Bomb | Daily Moisturiser & Tissue Mask Review

Now it is getting a lot colder in the UK, my skin is in more need of moisturiser as the cold makes my skin so dry. I have been looking for a good moisturiser that lasts throughout the day and makes my skin feel hydrated.

I came across the Garnier Skin Active Tissue mask in Boots and after seeing a lot of bloggers talking about it and because I am a huge fan of face masks I decided to give it a go.
Because I found the Tissue Mask such a good moisture mask that made my skin feel so hydrated, I decided to see what their day moisturiser was like.

This blog post will be quite a long one as I will be talking about both the Tissue Mask and Daily Moisturiser.

Garnier SkinActive – Moisture Bomb |  Tissue Mask

Super-hydrating revitalising mask for dehydrated skin. Intensely rehydrates skin, reduces the look of fine lines, and revives radiance. Enriched with pomegranate extract, hyaluronic acid, and plant serum.

Is Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask right for me?

Yes, if your skin is dehydrated, shows the effects of time and your lifestyle (dullness, irregularities, fine lines…), and if you are looking for an effective solution to rehydrate and revitalise the radiance of your skin.

How is it different?

This super hydrating tissue mask, inspired by Asia, diffuses the equivalent level of hydrating serum as per 1 week’s use of day care.* Truly innovative, its ultra-thin tissue is infused with a super-hydrating serum. Unmask smoother, bouncier, healthier looking skin in just 15 minutes.

Its amazing freshness quenches and comforts skin instantly, for a pure moment of absolute pampering. The mask is easy to apply and remove. Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.

*Equivalent to the concentration of hydrating glycerin in Moisture Bomb Day Cream used daily for 1 week.

Proven effectiveness:

In 15 minutes: Skin is intensely rehydrated, Skin looks smoother, Complexion is radiant. Fine lines appear reduced, Skin looks plumper, Skin radiance is revitalised.

Review

The Tissue Mask comes in a foil packet and contains one mask.
On the back of the packet it has instructions on how to use the tissue mask and how long to apply it for.

How To Use

1. Unfold the mask. Carefully apply the white tissue to thoroughly cleansed skin. Make sure the blue protective film is facing outwards. Smooth the mask gently to ensure contact with the skin.

2. Remove the protective film.

3. Adjust the mask contours on the face. Leave for 15 minutes.

4. To remove the mask, peel off slowly from the edges. Gently massage in any excess serum, or use a cotton pad to remove.

I found the actual mask a bit messy at first, I did not think it would be filled of product. It is also very cold on the skin but after a while it becomes quite soothing. It can also be a bit fiddly trying to get the protective film off.

I like to use this tissue mask twice a week as I can get quite dry skin, especially wearing makeup for work for long hours. I normally apply the mask after washing my hair and when I have a good film on so I can relax more.

When removing the mask I like to take the mask and rub the remaining product into my skin and then letting the product dry.

The holes in the mask are big enough to go around your eyes, nose and mouth. It is not greasy either so leaves your skin feeling very moisturised.

After the first use I felt my skin was so much more hydrated and looked more brighter and  the finish dewy looking. It is such a great mask to put on for 15 minutes as it is not drying like most face masks and not as half as messy!

I highly recommend this tissue mask if you have very dry skin or would just like to hydrate your skin a little. I keep recommending this mask to my friends and family as it has become my new favourite.

It is also £0.99 in Boots so I have been stocking up on them while they are currently on offer.

It is great value for money and does the job perfectly.

This product is originally £1.49 and you can find it in most stores or online at Boots here.

Garnier SkinActive – Moisture Bomb | Daily Moisturiser

For the first time, Garnier has integrated in a new generation, ultra-light texture:

– Two antioxidant superfruit extracts: Amla and Pomegranate, combined with daily UVA/UVB protection.

– A high concentration of Plant Serum.

Its fresh texture melts immediately on contact with the skin and hydrates it perfectly all day long. No greasy or sticky effect.

Proven Effectiveness*

– Instantly: 24 hour continuous hydration

-The skin feels smoother (89% of women agree)

– Wrinkles appear reduced, the skin is radiant and looks healthier (93% of women agree)

*Self-evaluation: 57 women

Is Moisture Bomb 3-in-1 Moisturiser right for me?

Yes, if your skin is dehydrated, shows the effects of time and your lifestyle (dullness, irregularities, fine lines…) and you seek a care that efficiently hydrates and leaves it feeling protected.

 Review

This moisturiser comes in a round, small bottle. You do not need a lot of product as a little goes a long way, unless you need a bit more moisture on some days.

3

How To Use

Apply one or two pea-sized amounts of Moisture Bomb 3-in-1 Moisturiser on clean, dry skin daily. Avoid the eye area. In case of contact with eyes, rinse them immediately and thoroughly. For best results, cleanse your skin beforehand.

I cleanse my face with the Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water before applying the Moisture Bomb Moisturiser. I then wait for it to dry before applying my concealer and powder, it makes my skin and makeup look a lot less dry and it lasts throughout the day.

It also makes my skin feel so smooth and hydrated. It does not really have a smell to it which I like as I am not a fan of perfumed moisturiser.
This moisturiser is so light weight and melts and sinks into your skin, I use one pump to cover my whole face.

I have been using this for just over 2 weeks now and I love this moisturiser so much as it is not at all greasy or heavy on my skin.

I will add it is quite expensive for how little you get but I think it is worth the price.

This product is £7.99 and can find it in most stores and online in Boots here.

I will be buying the Night Cream to complete the Moisture Bomb range.
I would like to point out this isn’t a sponsored blog post, I just really like this skin care range.

Have you tried any of the Garnier Moisture Bomb skin care range?

Get Ready With Me | Minimal Makeup, Hair Care & Skin Care

 Get Ready With MePicMonkey Collage3

Hello fellow bloggers & readers,
I thought I would do something a little different today. Instead of doing a post on skin care or makeup,
I decided I would make a little ‘Get Ready With Me’ video.

I’m going to go more into detail in this blog post.

I hope you liked this little video, I might start doing more blog posts like this with little videos to change things up a little.

Hair Care

If you want to know my full hair care routine I made a blog post and a video about it a few months ago.
My Hair Care Routine

My hair care routine is pretty basic, I don’t tend to change products that often.

Shampoo – LOreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil
£3.99
This is hands down my favourite shampoo as it has helped my hair so much when it was bleached and badly damaged.
It doesn’t weigh my hair down or make it look greasy.
If you bleach your hair or have damaged hair I recommend this product.

Hair Oil – LOreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil
£9.99
If you read my blog you will know how much I talk about this product. It never lets me down, this product also saved my over dyed, damaged hair at the beginning of the year. It is a little pricey but it lasts for ages! You only need one to two pumps of the oil and it spreads though the hair. It doesn’t leave your hair greasy or weighed down.

Spilt End Treatment – Umberto Giannini Mend My Hair
£7.99

This product also saved my damaged hair and also helps reduce spilt ends. It’s a 5-1 hair oil which helps repair your hair. I only use this product at the ends of my hair as I use the LOreal product all over.

Hair Brush – Tangle Teezer 
£10.99
This is a lot of money for a  hairbrush, but it actually does what it says it will.
It helps get all the knots and tangles out of my hair without it hurting. If you use a normal brush and then use this, you will notice a huge difference between the two!
I highly recombined this hair brush.
