This week I am testing out Charcoal mud by 7th heaven. I haven’t seen this one before which is surprising because Charcoal is all the range at the moment you can use it for your skin and for your teeth as well.
I was interested in this mask because it mentions that it’s for oily and combination skin which is 100% my skin. After Christmas my skin has been disliking me I guess because all the bad eating and drinking has taken a toll on my skin!
This charcoal mask is said to detox away oils and impurities. I’m hoping this is the SOS my skin needs.
How to apply
- Cleanse face
- Apply mask
- Leave for 15 mins
- Wash off
Today I have cleaned with my body shop facial wash ( my favourite product at the moment ) and also uses my facial exfoliating pads also from body shop to prep my skin. Without drying my skin, I apply the mask straight onto my face using a face mask applicator. I’m loving the smell of my mask, it smells like a basic mud mask but with a kind of minty smell!
I would say that it took around 15 mins to dry. It dried kind of flakey, but was super easy to remove.
Due to the mask drying so tight to me skin, it left my skin feel really refreshed and clean. My skin felt lovely all evening and I even woke to feeling fresh.
I really recommend this mask! It’s defiantly the skin boost I needed and I have less redness on my skin this morning.

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)
- Cleanse face
- Apply to face
- Leave for 25 mins
- Peel off
- 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 😍
Today I am using Volcano clay mask by Garnier. This past is to minimise your pores.
How to use
- Wash face
- Apply mask
- Leave for 3 mins
- 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?
It’s Post Halloween weekend and my skin is in need of tlc due to alcohol ruining my skin and the OTT Halloween make up drying my skin out.
This week I am trying another 7th heaven brand mask. This mask contains avocado, Aloe Vera and walnut in. The aim is to exfoliate and moisture’s your skin.
How to apply
1. Cleanse your face
3. 15-20 mins relax time
4. Rinse off
First impressions of the mask, is that the smell of avocado is very strong. The overall smell of the mask is, an earth smell. Applying is really simple and isn’t messy at all. I love the fact that the mask has beads in it, which exfoliates your skin as you apply it.
I left the mask on for 25 mins, this as enough time for it to fully dry. Again nice and simple to come off, I used a flannel and it took three mins to take it off. I felt like I was exfoliating my skin.
My skin feels fresh, and defiantly feels exfoliated. I love the fact it was easy to apply and easy to take off. I wasn’t a fan off the smell, even though I love avocado! Strange!
I give this mask 4/5!
Have you tried any other 7th heaven masks? What’s your favourite mask? I would love to hear from you!
I have recently heard great thing about 7th heaven masks recently.
From friends and reviews by fellow bloggers. I decided to give the brand ago and purchased the Dead Sea Mud Pac.
I picked this one as it is said to prevent an oily T Zone, take away dead skin, open pores and to distress. Which all of above is on my to do list, so this defiantly sounded like the best one for me.
As it’s changing from summer to Autumn, this is always the time when my skin takes the effects. My combination skin is currently at its worse and I have to master it now before winter time.
How to apply
- Cleanse face
- Apple mask onto wet face
- Leave for 10-15 mins
- Wash off
Opening the mask, you get an immediate waft of the fragrance. I’m sure what it supposed to smell like but to me it smells like fresh washing powder and I love how clean it smells!! 😍
Really easy to put on and take off! Takes around 18-20 mins to fully dry, I would say.
My skin has been great for the next five days, my black heads have gone down and my skin is least oily but feels really moisturised! I love this one and I would rate it 4/5.
Let me know how you get on!!
I ordered this Pretty Smooth seaweed mud mask from Boohoo.com.
I must admit it smelt pretty amazing and smelt really fresh. It came in an easy squeezing tube. I did have to use quite a lot to
Cover my whole face.
It said leave on for 10-15 mins and then wash off. I didn’t feel like the mask was dry by this time and I left it on for a total of 20 mins. At this point is still wasn’t dry in an places.
I washed it off with a flannel, as it was difficult to take off with just water.
After my skin felt like it had a good wash, rather then a good face mask.
This product was very cheap ( literally a pound or two for a massive tube). I am sorry to say ( hate being a Debby downer) but this mask wasn’t very good. I didn’t feel like my skin was overall fresh for using a facemask.
Monday is the most important day of your week! You should Start the week off with a fresh mind, just as you mean to go on.
This Monday I am pampering myself in the evening with a …. Tea Tree Clay mask from the body shop costing £11. I'm also relaxing with a lush bath bomb costing £3.90
I love the packaging it's cute and it's simple.
It Smells AMAZING, smells minty!
It's a light texture and really easy to put on, a little goes a long way. At first it tingles on my skin It dries fairly quickly, within 15 mins. It feels like it "dried thinner" and my skin feels fresh while it's drying.
It was slightly difficult to wash off, despite the reviews saying it was easy. I chose to firstly attempt with water and then to us cotton pads. Once I used cotton pads, it was fine to get off.
My skin feels amazing! It feels light and refreshed! My pores feel minimised and my skin feels fresh. My skin feels moisturised and tight, but doesn't feel like it has dried it.
It reccomend a using this product twice a week for full effect. I am defiantly going to try this as I love it so far!
Being a girl is tough right?
When we get stressed, our skin gets stressed and then we get stressed that our skin isn’t looking great.
Once every week or every two weeks. I write in my diary an hour that I am spending with only myself.
During this time I usually take a long soak in the bath with either some Radox bubble bath or a Lush bath bomb.
I will also do a face mask which I usually go my charcoal blackhead mask. As I try to sauna and steam room at the gym in the week, this helps with opening up my pores.
I like to exfoliate my lips and add lipbalm, this helps for a smooth look when I apply lipstick.
During this time, I would like to read and have time away from my phone and away from humans.
I made my first Vlog, about how to treat yourself! Enjoy!
