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!
This week I am trying Super Drugs own brand masks. I decided to try the seaweed peel of mask.
This mask is said to cleanse and detox the skin. It is well known that seaweed is very beneficial for the skin. I also haven’t used a peel off mask in a while and I always feel nice and refreshed after using them.
This mask doesn’t smell as strong as some of the masks I have recently been using. It was really difficult to apply because it is super thick! If anyone has used the charcoal black head masks, it’s a similar constituency of that.
Once you work out a technique to put it on it’s easy after that. I use all of the contents and applied a
medium layer across my face.
It says it take 10-20 mins to dry. It took 20 – 25 mins to fully dry. Some parts didn’t dry properly, I feel they may have been areas where I over applied. It was really easy to take off, peeled straight off. Unlike the charcoal masks, it didn’t hurt or leave my face red raw. Instead it left me feeling cleansed and slightly moisturised as well.
I spent the remainder of my day with no make up on and two of my aggravated spots had noticeably become less red and had decreased in size.
I would give this mask a 4/5!
Have you used any of super drugs own branded face masks? I would love you to comment below! 👀
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.
Today’s Mask Monday is a thermal Clay Mask by sanctuary spa. This mask is part of their Cleanse Range. It is supposed to remove make up and daily grime and impurities with out drying your skin. The mask is self heating which opens up your pores and the charcoal and Kaolin Clay helps draws our impurities under the skin. All of this, aims to removes excess oil and leave you skin feeling cleansed and fresh.
I’ve used quite a few products by this brand much Favourite moisture facial scrub, it lightly exfoliates my skin as well as moisturising. I also use their gentle polish body scrub which does a similar thing but for my body. Both products are really refreshing for the skin and smell Devine!
I bought a pouch of this product for £2.99 in Boots. You can buy a full size in boots for £10.
The first step of using this product is to wash face and leave damp. The product was easy to put on and was slightly messy. I could literally feel the Mask heat up immediately after putting in on my face. It took less then 5 mins to put on. You only leave this mask on for 5 mins, as it can be used a few times a week as your normal skin care routine. The mask does cool down after 1 min of being on your skin. To wash this face mask off, I used a flannel to pull it off. The mask was still a gooey texture and doesn’t dry like most facemasks. My skin After was very red ( so defo so use this mask If you have somewhere to be after). My skin feels very soft and moisturised. I didn’t get the wow factor fresh feeling that I usually get after using a face mask, which was a little disappointing.
I personally wouldn’t invest in the big bottle but I would possible my a pouch again and use it randomly.
I would give this product a *** out of *****.
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!
