What girl doesn’t adore a pamper night? A classic movie, nail polish and a face mask on a Sunday evening is my idea of winding down, preparing myself to start the week refreshed. If this is your idea of a perfect pamper night and you don’t want to spend a fortune on products, I may just have the perfect face masks for you!
If you’ve read my skincare routine, then you’ll know that I LOVE doing face masks. I like to do one twice a week to try and keep my face blemish-free and brightened!
So, when I received four face masks in the post from Anatomicals, I was more than excited to try them out!*
If you don’t know much about the brand Anatomicals, they manufacture the ‘world’s funkiest toiletries’, ranging from lip balm to body wash, and all their products are free from animal testing. They like to put the fun back into skincare with their inexpensive and bright products.
I only received these masks last week, so I can’t give an opinion for all of them, but I have tested two of them out and can let you know my full thoughts!
Firstly, let’s talk about packaging; each of the face mask comes in a funky single sachet with the front describing what’s inside – I LOVE THIS DESIGN. It’s cute, it’s bright, and it definitely stands out from other brands.
The first mask that I used was the anti-blemish mask – my skin has been a little bit of a nightmare over the past few weeks so I thought this one would be perfect to use! Since it promises to hydrate, tone, revitalise and leave your skin blemish-free, who wouldn’t be excited to try this? I simply washed and cleansed my face with my favourite face wash, and applied the mask. Using my fingers, I applied a thin layer and left to sit on my skin for 10-15 minutes, (although the sachet says one use, I could get two out of it as I only used half of it!). The best thing about this face mask is that it smells delightful, not too strong but still yummy! I have very sensitive skin when it comes to face masks, and this didn’t irritate me at all, in fact, it definitely made a difference and my blemishes went down over the next couple of days after using it. If you’re having a nightmare with your skin, you should try this mask out!
The next mask that I put to the test was the toning cucumber face mask, which I used a few days after the anti-blemish one. This mask aims to soothe and hydrate skin without exacerbating any oiliness, so since I love my skin to be hydrated I knew I wanted to try this one! I LOVED the smell of this. It’s heavily scented with cucumbers, which made me feel so relaxed, and it made my face feel cool. Again, I washed my face, ensuring to use warm water to keep my pores open, and applied the mask. After 15 minutes, I rinsed off with cooler water to seal my pores and I was done! This mask certainly toned and moisturised, and I’ll be using it again when I have my dull skin days.
Overall, I’m super impressed with the Anatomicals face masks and I can’t wait to try out the others, especially the brightening one! If you have any issues with your skin, Anatomicals will have a face mask for you and I would definitely recommend them! I can’t believe they’re only 3 for £3.50!
