Top 3 face masks for brighter, softer & healthier skin

I love a good pampering session. Face steamed, face mask on, optional wine in hand and relaxing, it's the best way to spend 'me' time. Since I am an avid pamper lover, I have tried many face masks over the past few years, and there is nothing more disappointing than wasting a pamper session on a face mask that doesn't deliver. You want soft, irresistible to the touch skin - not a face that is bright red, inflamed and stinking of disappointment. So to avoid the latter, here are some top notch face masks that will do the job they are intended to do (and more!).

For an even skin tone - Nuxe Creme Fraiche De Beaute Masque
When I first used this mask I honestly was in shock about how good it was. I'd never heard of the brand before, but I received it in my Glossy Box and I thought I would give it a go. It's the mask you need in your life if you have uneven skin, or any patches of redness that you want to smooth out and make more even. This mask (literally within one use!) makes your complexion so much more even, and your skin looks glowing. It also smells beautiful. I am running out of adjectives and words to tell you how good this mask is, please just see for yourself and thank me later.

For hydration & general TLC - Body Shop Vitamin E Sleeping Mask 
This mask is really easy. It doesn't need washing off, it's easy to apply and does it's job. It's kind of a like a jelly-ish thick moisturiser in consistency, you put it on before you go to sleep and wake up with glorious and hydrated skin. It's really good if you have dry skin and want to freshen it up. If I ever want my make-up to look extra nice one day I will use this mask the night before and my make-up will go on so much smoother because my skin is all hydrated and feeling FAB.

For exfoliating - L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay Glow Mask
I'm sure you will have seen or heard about these masks already, as they have been on beauty blogs everywhere, but it's not without good reason. The Glow Mask in particular has grown to be one of my absolute favourites. It has tiny little beads in it which work wonders for exfoliating your skin without leaving it all red like some other beaded masks can. It leaves your skin so, so soft which I absolutely love. This one is a little more high maintenance as you actually have to wash it off, and look slightly crazy for 10 minutes, but that's all part of the fun!

Do you have any face masks that are good for certain skin concerns? Let me know in the comments below!

  8. I actually have this particular clay mask from L'Oreal. It doesn't seem to do much and actually irritates my skin a bit. :/ The Nuxe and Body Shop masks, however, look right up my alley!

  9. These regular fixings are in nature, as well as the greater part of them are additionally effectively found in your skin. After some time, your skin loses a portion of the intensity of the normal fixings and when you supplant them, your skin starts to look solid. http://www.facecreamsselection.com/healthy-eating-habits-reverse-ugly-signs-aging/
