Top Exfoliating Masks/Treatments Wishlist

Hello Ladies,

So recently my Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant mask (reviewed here) is nearly all gone! I’ve loved using the product and I was going to buy another one but there are so many different exfoliating masks/treatments on the market I figured I might try a new one. So here’s a list of all the ones I’ve read about that I want to try.

Exfoliator Masks

Exfoliator Masks

1. Alpha H Liquid Gold

A multi action formula enriched with silk proteins, licorice extract and Glycolic acid. It works to jump-start the skin’s metabolism, tightening enlarged pores and giving a brighter, clearer complexion.

  • This is my dream product, I really want to try this and having done a fair bit of research I’ve read nothing but amazing reviews for this product!

2. Ren Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask

‘A combination of fruit acids complex and papain enzyme from the papaya fruit, that gives a gentle yet effective exfoliating peel. If you have congested, mature, post acne scarring or blemished skin this will  leave your skin in optimum health’

  • So my skin has recently been recovering from a horrible bout of acne and I’ve been left with a few scars which have been fading away thanks to my Manuka honey, cinnamon and nutmeg facemask but I still feel like a mask like this will really make the process a lot quicker and give it a healthy glow that it needs.

Available on at £27.00

3. Pixi Glow Tonic

So this product has recently become quite popular in the beauty blogosphere and after reading excellent reviews it has quickly become one of the top products on my beauty list. It is described as a dupe for P50 but a cheaper version. It works to tone, firm and tighten skin whilst exfoliating dead skin cells away with Glycolic acid.

  • It’s not available online but there is a store in Fouberts Place, London and there is a number you can call to order over the phone.

Telephone: 020-7287-7211  £16.00

4. Liz Earle Brightening Treatment Mask

‘This is a fast-acting mask which aims to revitalize dull skin.It contains camphor oil and which hazel to help give your skin a natural-looking radiance’

  • I love that this product requires you to leave the mask on for 30 seconds which results in an instant radiant glow. Great for when you are short on time but need a quick skin boost!

Available on at £14.00 for 50ml pump

5. Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel

Contains Papaya and Pineapple fruit enzyme action which will smooth, brighten and clarify your complexion. The formula is non-granular, gentle and works by dissolving dead skins cells without rubbing.

  • I’m not usually keen on fruity smelling masks only because I don’t really feel like they’re doing much but this has the fruity smelling aspect, gently exfoliates and dissolves dead skin cells away which is great.

Available on at £29.50

6. Oskia Renaissance Mask

Contains natural fruit acids (AHA’s) including passion fruit, grape and pineapple fruit acids which work to gently exfoliate the epidermis and decongested pores. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin soft, toned and smooth. Not to mention the beautiful rose scent!

  • This just sounds amazing, I love the scent of roses so this is just a dreamy relaxing mask for me!

Available on at £48.50

7. Dr Manuka Bee Venom Mask

With purified bee venom and UMF this mask is a deep penetrating skin renewal treatment that nurtures, regenerates & assists with the renewal of damaged skin cells.

  • I really love Manuka honey so this product is just perfect for me!

Available on  at £49.99

8.Glam Glow Mud Mask

A 10 minute mask aims to give you a ‘Noticeable 3 day glow from skin collagen synthesis, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, leaves skin smooth and soft and multi level resurfacing exfoliation and even out skin tone’

  • Again a quick 10 minute mask, great for when you’re in a rush. I’ve read great reviews about this mask as well!

Available on at £38.50

Manuka Honey, Cinnamon and Nutmeg Face Mask…My Saviour

Hi Ladies,

So I know it’s been a while since I last posted and the reason for this is because there’s been a few things happen in my personal life recently which have occupied some of my time, but I’m back and hopefully with some interesting posts.

So recently I have been suffering from horrific acne and I couldn’t figure out what was causing the sudden flare up until after some experimenting found out that this was my M.A.C Studio Fix Fluid Foundation. So I immediately stopped using it and moved on to my good old Revlon Colorstay foundation. I was left with some really awful cystic acne of the side of my cheeks and I was on a mission to get rid of them!

So I came across Manuka Honey, Cinnamon and Nutmeg face mask through Pinterest and I was so desperate that I was willing to try anything and I am so glad that I did. I have quickly listed short facts known about the ingredients below.

1. Manuka Honey – 2 Tsps

Sainsbury’s Manuka Honey 10+ 340G – £9.99

3. Ground Cinnamon – 1/2 Tsp

4. Ground Nutmeg – 1/2 Tsp

  • Manuka Honey has properties that contain anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and the ability to aid in healing and repair damaged skin.
  • Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties and it also brings blood and oxygen to the surface on the skin and unclogs the pores.
  • Nutmeg is also anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial and also dries out pimples.
How to..

Mix all the ingredients in a clean container to form a thick consistency (thick enough where it won’t slide down your face). Now I have to stress this point, this is not an over night cure! This took about 4 weeks to clear my skin up and this involved using this mask every single day. It was a strict regime that involved no other products, if you feel that you need to use your standard spot treatments as well then go for it.

The Results

I found that the mask was drawing the acne to the surface so I could extract (EWWWW) the gunk inside. Once that was done the every day use of the mask helped heal the spots quicker and helped clear up the scarring as well.

Even though my acne it completely gone, I still use the mask everyday. I find that my skin is amazingly soft, the softest it’s been in a long time. It is time consuming and you won’t see results straight away but what I love about this mask is that it’s natural, chemical free and not as harsh as other spot treatments.

So ladies give it a go and let me know the results!
