Face masks - stocking fillers

Winter can be harsh on your skin, coming in from the bitter cold winds to the hot office your skin has to cope with a lot, as a result may be looking a little dull - so treat yourself this Christmas to a pampering face mask!

I'd love to go all James Wong on you and give you recipes for making your own face masks, but I'm not a Ethnobotanist!  Instead, I'll share with you a couple of my favourite shop bought ones :)


Priced at just 99p, and more often than not on special offer, I give you: 


Natural Collection face masks, this range includes wild strawberry and rosemary and witch hazel masks. These little face mask sachets are great for girly nights in too, you can squeeze 3 applications out of one pack if you're not too wasteful!

No self-respecting bathroom cupboard would be complete without a mud mask or two floating about inside. I give you:

Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Masque. This anti-stress and ultra poor cleansing mask will leave your skin feeling silky soft in no time. The Dead Sea has long been known for it's health and beauty benefits, the minerals in the dead sea are said to help heal skin ailments such as eczema, psoriasis and acne! With all these health benefits, and priced at just 99p, I'd class this one as the Queen of the face masks!

Finally, my if I win the lottery face mask choice:

Priced at £100 NATURA BISSE: Diamond Ice Lift transepidermal DNA cryo–mask" is the stuff that face mask dreams are made of! For the price you get 100ml of "The perfect blend between conventional facial masks and transepidermal patches. Natura Bissé's award winning Diamond Ice Lift works in synergy to create an innovative ‘cold–lifting’ effect with a unique Ice Lifting System formulated with high concentrations of marine DNA that nourish and hydrate the skin throughout the day." I've been very good this year Santa!

Make sure you apply plenty of moisturiser after - these cleansing and purifying face masks can also take away some of the moisture from your skin so you need to replace it right away.
