Mask Monday ( but on Thursday)

Hey Yallll,

Again, I’m sorry for the gap between my posts I’ve been a very busy bee and there is a whole post about it on my page if you are interested.

I’m back and my skin is need a good treat. I have invested in a head band and face mask application brush. I order this from amazon for £5.99!

This week I am using a cucumber peel off face mask by 7th Heaven ( who I am lovinggg if you haven’t noticed)

The rules

  1. Cleanse face
  2. Apply to face
  3. Leave for 25 mins
  4. Peel off
  5. Rinse face

Today in my super quick video you will notice I have cleaned my face with the body shop tea tree oil face wash which I am really digging right now.

I then pop on my head band and apply the face mask with the application brush. It is soooooo easy to apply with the brush and i feel this mask could of been super sticky so I really appreciated it.

I couldn’t smell cucumber but I defiantly smelt a fresh earthy smell which was refreshing.

Once applied I’ve got a half hour left of I’m a celeb!

It took 25 mins to dry and there was a bit that I piled on to much face mask that wouldn’t dry properly.

Easy peasy to peel off, although there was some bits I had to feel for before I could peel off!

My skin felt lovely going to bed felt clean, moisturised and Fresh.

The next day my skin still feels fresh, and my blemishes are very much less red and my skin is less inflamed.

I really like this mask as I defiantly can see and feel a difference. It’s easy to put on and peel of which is convenient .

5/5 for this one 😍

Busy bee

It’s been a week or two since I’ve posted and I just wanted to explain why!!

I’ve been such a busy beeeee

Why

Between being busy with my new job! Trying to make a good first impression, Trying to make sure I get plenty of sleep and wake up Fresh. To organise my spare time into working out how I can make the most of my time at work to hit all of my target. Last weekend I went to poursmouth with my bestie and our boyfriends for Christmas shopping and this weekend I went to Reading for a rum festival. My Sundays have been spent catching up with family, or is Christmas after all. Most of my Christmas shopping has been done online at the moment

Volcano mask

Today I am using Volcano clay mask by Garnier. This past is to minimise your pores.

How to use

  1. Wash face
  2. Apply mask
  3. Leave for 3 mins
  4. Wash off

Straight away, you feel the heat from the mask. It actually stings my spot on my nose, perhaps it’s an open spot? It smells like your typical clay mask.

I find it strange only leaving a mask on for 3 mins. I probably left it on for 4 mins in total.

My skin felt soft straight away. The next morning my pores do look minimised and my spots have dried out.

Today I have only done a short review. This is because the mask is a quick mask, which was perfect because I had a busy evening yesterday and needed some quick skin love. I personally didn’t like the heat side of the mask, but I feel that’s my personal judgement on this type of mask. The skin did improve my skin.

Do you like heating masks? I’d love to hear?

Eco spa in Hove

I love a massage! I love to unwind. Let’s face it although the gym is good for you, it can also take its toll on your body. Even sitting over your computer isn’t good for your neck.

I’ve had my fair share of massages from fancy hotels to Thai massages in Thailand.

Eco Spa is much more then just a place for a massage, it’s about the whole experience.

When you walk in the door, you are welcomed by wonderful Aromas. The receptionist welcomes you, and offers you a water or a herbal tea.

If it’s your first time, you are asked to fill out a form which gives you the opportunity to mention if you have any medical problems.

Once you have done that you are taken into the main massage room. Which again smells beautiful, always has relaxing music in the back ground. You have a short consultation, where they ask how you feel in body and mood. What pressure you like your massage at? If you have any specific tensions? This gives me peace of mind because I already know, that this lady knows how I like my massage.

I get undress and get under the warm bedding. Today’s massage was 30 mins, back neck and shoulder. She placed warm flannels on my back before we begin. I felt so relaxed but at the same time felt that my knots were removed. I love the feeling of them popping and feeling released after. It’s comforting that the lady checks that the pressure is okay. The massage goes very quickly as it’s so enjoyable. I can honestly say, that I have been here twice and have had the best massage.

After the massage is over, I was asked again if I wanted tea or water. I was then allowed to go to the meditation pods. The meditation pods are little rooms with pillows. They have mood lighting which you can change. A colouring book and some cute books to read. I am not the meditating time but I love sitting in here for ten mins after my massage to fully relax. I usually turn my phone off for these ten mins and just take some time to focus on me.

I would highly recommend this Spa. Today I has Elouise massage me and she was great. I even purchased some of the herbal tea as it’s so yummy. I can’t wait to book me next appointment.
