A Trio of Masks for Any Occasion

I love to spend time pampering myself as it helps me to unwind and relax. Using facial masks is one of my favourite ways to feel pampered and refreshed. Such a small thing can have such a massive effect on your mood and I'm a fan of feeling good. I wanted to share my new trio of masks that can see you through any occasion and the plus is that they are all available on the high-street! 


I'm going to start with my favourite mask that I think everyone needs and that is the Kiko Energy Mask Detoxifying Black Mask (£5.90/55ml). I've tried to look for this online, and there is no mention of this so it might be discontinued! If you do spot this, be sure to grab a bottle because it's amazing. It's a black mask that just seems to help congested skin and make your skin noticeably clearer and brighter. It's leaves your skin matte without being too drying uncomfortable! I think this makes an excellent weekly mask to just help get things balanced again. I like to remove this mask with a muslin cloth because it takes the mask off within seconds! 


The mask that is perfect for any early risers is the Soap and Glory The Fab Pore Mask (£10.00/30ml). This mask aims to purify and reduce the appearance of pores through the minty flavour which is probably the reason why this works so well! The minty smell also helps to wake you up if you put this on in the morning. It also has medium size beads that I like to work into my skin while I apply the product and take it off. This is a good one to just concentrate on the nose area before make-up application, it just makes everything smooth and pores less crater-like for people who suffer with craters on their face (like me!).


The next mask I have to mention is my newest mask which is the L'Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask (£7.99/50ml). This mask contains Red Algae and also has little beads so you can exfoliate the face to achieve a brighter, more glowing complexion. I think this is a great product to use all year round as who doesn't want to look like they are glowing from within? For the price, I think it's a great investment, it gives you a lot of product with the addition of a scrub. This also smells like Cardamom which I like, however it was really unexpected coming from a product like this! This is the one I would recommend for someone who is looking for an all-round mask to help their skin look a bit more youthful and brightened. 
Have you tried any of these masks? Also what masks would you recommend - I would love to know!

  1. I only have glow mask and it is my favourite of that clay range, I love how soft and bright my skin gets after using it. That Kiko mask sounds good, shame that it's discontinued :/

    1. Ooooh if it's your favourite then I'm glad I got it! The exfoliation part makes it great for travel and before an event for sure! I know! I had no idea that it wasn't available online!

  2. I love a good face mask! Sadly I can't get KIKO here so even if it was still made I wouldn't be able to try it, but I might have to give the new L'oreal masks a try!
    Great blog!

  3. Hi Anjna! I love face masks a lot and I've been using a lot of new ones lately (they are mainly mini sizes/samples etc.). You know I agree on the Glow mask and I've been enjoying using it. The only thing I don't like is when they have beads (and you mentioned the S&G has them too), because I'd rather exfoliate my skin with chemicals (acids) than with physical exfoliants. I will look for the Kiko Detox Mask, though my cabinet is now full of face masks and I still have to review most of them.
    Have a lovely start of the week!

    1. Hey Silvia!
      Haha mini samples are the best! Way better than just buying blind! :) Oooh physical exfoliates can scratch the skin, but for me nothing can beat the feeling of a freshly scrubbed face haha. But I try not to be too harsh :) I look forward to seeing more reviews from you! Thanks for reading :)
