Four Face Masks!

  
I've recently gone a little face mask crazy, I'm obsessed with trying out new ones every week. There's nothing quite like a mini pamper session where you run a bubble bath light a candle and use your favourite face mask. Lately I've really been seeing the benefits of using face masks weekly and I cant get enough of them. I thought I'd run through my four current favourite face masks.
I had heard so many good things about the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Face Mask and I knew I would love it. This face mask is described as an intensely moisturising, cleansing and anti-oxidising treatment, and to me that honestly sums it up perfectly. I like to use this around twice a week as I love the feeling and look of my skin after using this, I can instantly feel that my skin is hydrated and looks a lot brighter. The Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask is a great mask for both morning and evening. It also smells amazing which is always a plus.
The Oskia Renaissance Mask is designed to increase cell turnovers, boost radiance, exfoliate your skin leaving you with a smoother brighter and nourished skin. The Oskia Renaissance mask has a great blend of beauty boosting nutrients such as Passion Fruit, Grape, Lemon & Grapefruit AHAs, Papaya Enzymes, Swiss Garden Cress Liposomes, Ribose & Butterbur. I always look for products that work instantly and the Oskia Renaissance Mask does exactly that. My skin instantly looks brighter and feels  super soft to touch. I like to use this mask around once a week when I feel my skin needs an extra lift. Be sure to check out my full review on this here.
The Origins Clear Improvement Mask is packed with active charcoal which acts like a magnet to draw out deep dwelling pore cloggers. You simple open your pores with warm water and then layer on the product. I tend to only apply this particular face mask to my t-zone as that's where my pores are quite bad. I love the tight feeling this face mask gives once applied, I will use it once a week if I feel my pores are quite clogged. I like that the Origins Clear Improvement Mask clears my pores and my skin is left feeling super clean I also find that any areas I may of had redness are calmed instantly. I will be reviewing this face mask fully in a separate blog post so keep an eye out for that.
The Caudalie Instant Detox Mask contains pink clay to purify, anti oxidant grape mare, papaya enzymes for exfoliation as well as essential oils to sooth and balance the skin. This face mask is designed to eliminate impurities and toxins to tighten pores and renew the skins texture. I love the smell of this mask it reminds me of being in a spa. I tend to apply this to my T-zone only as that's where I tend to be more oily. As promised the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask shrinks your pores and if used a few times a week I do believe this actually lasts for a couple of days. I leave this mask on for around 5-10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. I will be doing a full review on the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask so keep and eye out for that. 
I absolutely love my bath board from JB Wood Designs it's honestly my new obsession, I can't wait for the evenings so I can run a bath light my candles and just relax with a book. These bath boards are all hand made and you can add your own personal touches such as these tea light holders and a wine glass holder. These bath boards would also make such a lovely gift and the quality is amazing! You can purchase these bath boards from Etsy: JBWoodDesign Also be sure to follow them on Twitter: @jbwooddesigns

Candle's are an essential for me, I burn them all year round no matter how hot it may get. I love lighting my favourite candle while I have a pamper night in. This time round I burnt a candle from Etsy: CorinneTHolistic it's a purifying aromatherapy candle, which is perfect for a relaxing night in. I love the jar and the shabby chic look of this candle, it looks so pretty left on the side in my bathroom. This Purify natural soy wax candle is made with cleansing Cedarwood, Juniper Berry and Lemongrass essential oils. My bathroom is always left smelling amazing, it's a very refreshing, earthy scent and it's perfect for this time of year.

  3. I'll raise my hand as an obsessive mask user too! I find the origins one a bit too much for my skin but I adore the Oskia mask and the Caudalie mask range. The Oskia one smells so good I want to eat it xx
