Face masks

So recently I went to Superdrug and bought some facemasks to try, because I finished using the ones I ordered from Sasa (Olay) Which were super moisturizing so I'd recommend them for people with normal/dry skin, but I have oily/combination skin during and post summer. So I decided to look into mud masks and pore cleansing masks, which will help control my oily T-zone.

Clockwise from top left: Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber Peel Off Masque 99p, Mudd Original Deep Cleansing Mask 99p, Superdrug - Cooling Cucumber 89p, Superdrug - Self Heating Apricot 89p, Superdrug - Nurishing Chocolate 89p, Superdrug - Peel off face mask Pomegranate&cranberry 89p.

I'm so eager to get stuck in and try them all!! I use 1 facemask a week as a deep moisturiser/deep cleanser because you don't need it every day, so the first one I've used so far is the Montagne Jeunesse Peel Off Masque. It says on the packet that it is recommended for normal, oily, combination skin on t-zone/all over face peel, so you can just use it on your T-zone (forehead and nose) or just apply it all over your face. It comes out like a gel and it totally stunk of chemicals... in fact it was so bad that the smell alone stings and burns your eyes if you apply it around you eyes whilst they're open x.x You leave it on till it dries and you peel the whole thing off and wipe off the excess after. I think it really unclogged my pores, and acted like one big pore strip for my face. So once you get past the strong smell, you do get the benefits of the deep cleanse. When it dries it tightens up around your face, so if you don't like that then I won't recommend it for you. Overall, I think this brand it worth checking out, but I'm reluctant to buy the same mask.

Hm, which one to try next?? Hehe.
