THE DETOX YOU’LL ALL WANT TO TRY
It’s January; the beginning of the year, a time for fresh starts, and let’s face it… a time where the word detox crops up more than the people you don’t want to see when you’re wearing no makeup.
Detox is not a word I enjoy or, considering the fact that pizza is basically my middle name, actually do, but one kinda detox that I can get on board with is skincare and more specifically, a good ole face mask because not only are they fun and relaxing and a massive part of my “switch off” routine… they also make your skin look sassier than Queen Bee.
My current mask favourite “turn me into Queen Bee whilst I dance around to all of her tunes and better believe I’m doing all of her trademark moves” mask? Sanctuary’s Purifying Charcoal bubble sheet mask. More fangirl coming soon but what you need to know right now is that it bubbles on your face.
IT BUBBLES ON YOUR FACE
Ok, so what is this super magical, amazing mask and what does it do? The Purifying Charcoal mask combines the cleansing power of charcoal with the easiness of a sheet mask (my favourite kinda mask) but with the difference of the bubbles, to give you a sensorial experience as well as really detoxifying your skin.
With the power of a million microbubbles, a duo – more impressive than Ant and Dec – of absorbent charcoal and purifying oxygen which work together to deeply cleanse and purify skin. The charcoal helps to draw out skin impurities (daily dirt, grime and pollution, looking at you huns) the mask claims to reduce pores and make skin visibly clearer and fresher.
So, how do we use this little sasspot then?
My favourite thing about this mask (apart from how it leaves my skin) is that it’s so blimmin easy to use. After cleansing, apply both parts of the mask to skin, smooth out creases and leave for 10-15 minutes.
I recommend making a cuppa and grabbing a biscuit or 7 in this time, but you do you.
Rinse your face and voila.
Ok so I’ve waffled enough about the techy parts now, here’s what I think about the mask. First of all, I love how easy this was to use and the fact that both parts of the mask fit really well and stay on your face well (I know that sounds silly but it means you can get on with whatever you fancy doing without worrying that it’ll fall off). I absolutely loved the feel of the bubble effect on my skin and couldn’t believe how quickly the mask started bubbling whilst on – and still continued to bubble up 10 minutes later – it’s actually a little bit mesmerising (no you sat and watched your face bubbling up). I’ve used other bubble sheet masks before but none of them bubbled as much as Sanctuary’s and oh, did I mention that it also smells like a dream? Well, it does *insert heart eye’d emojis here*
Apart from feeling like I was living my best life, the best part of it is that it really did make such a huge difference to my skin in one use. My skin was brighter, clearer (TMI but I had a really fabulous spot which had pretty much dried and cleared up completely the morning after using this) and my pores that are usually bigger than a basketball were so significantly reduced that I almost couldn’t quite believe my eyes.
So yeah, Sanctuary’s Charcoal bubble sheet mask (RRP £5) is available in most Boots stores, Boots.com and Sanctuary.com and right now you can save 25% off the entire Sanctuary skincare range until February 13th (that means this sheet mask is just £3.75 pals, snap it up!) Linked here for anyone else who loves a pamper as much as I do.
And I think that that might be it. In short, the mask is super fun and really enjoyable to use whilst also doing an incredible job of purifying and detoxifying your skin making it look so much clearer and brighter. It honestly transformed my skin in 15 minutes so I couldn’t recommend it to you enough. Especially perfect for a girly night in!
I’d love to know what you do to chill out and relax? Have you tried a bubble sheet mask before? I always love hearing your thoughts! 🙂
As always, thanks so much for reading!
