Hey guys! it's been a while hasn't it? i apologise for the lack of posts as of late. To be completely honest with you i kind of lost the passion i first had for blogging. It started to feel less like fun and more like a chore. I'm sure many of you with blogs know exactly what i mean. When that happens the best thing to do is to take a little break and that should reignite the love again- i'm back and excited to be blogging again :D
I don't know about you but i can't just walk past a lush store without popping in. It's probably due to the fact that you can smell the store before you see it lol ugh it's so enticing! I picked up these two face masks a few weeks ago and i'm so happy i did. I'd never heard anything about the DLAM face mask prior to purchasing it. The first thing i noticed was the colour and then the mention of murumuru butter and that was enough for me. I was sold! you may be interested to know that this mask is actually vegan, so for those of you that are looking for vegan cosmetics, this is one to add to your list.
DLAM is mainly composed of Murumuru butter, (moisturising) lemon juice (brightening & toning), kaolin clay and ground rice (exfoliating). Lemon juice can irritate some skin types so if you have extremely sensitive skin you may want to give this a miss (i, myself have sensitive skin but this didn't seem to bother me *shrugs*) Also the ground rice is quite rough on the skin so you really do want to be as gentle as possible when removing this. I know you're probably wondering what it smells like, right? to me, it's a pleasant citrusy smell which i can't get enough of! this is great for combination/ dry skin
Directions : Slather a generous amount all over your face/body and rinse off thoroughly after 15 minutes
This mask has left my skin looking visibly brighter, smoother and feeling very moisturised. Every time i use DLAM i spend about 10 minutes just staring at my skin in awe lol. I assure you it's totally worth spending 15 minutes looking like a smurf ;) I suggest using DLAM 2x a week

Next up we have... *drum roll* ...Cosmetic warrior! now this is one of the most raved about masks and my curious self wanted to know if it really lived up to the hype. Cosmetic Warrior is mainly composed of honey (moisturising) egg whites (tightens pores), tea tree oil (anti-bacterial) and garlic (anti -inflammatory). And yes, that's exactly what it smells like lol but the smell is faint. It's great for those that suffer with acne-prone/ combination/ sensitive skin.
Directions : Slather a generous amount all over your face (do not let the mask dry completely) then rinse off after 10 minutes, followed up with your favourite toner and moisturiser.
A few days ago i had a pimple and decided to put CW to the test. I noticed that the redness and swelling had gone down and that was after the first use! The pimple just kept reducing in size with each use, i was surprised to be honest as i didn't expect to see a difference so soon. It's evened out my skin tone and minimized my pores- what's not to love?! I suggest using CW 3x a week.
Ingredients: Kaolin, Fresh Green Grapes (vitis vinifera), Fresh organic free range eggs, Honey, Cornstarch (zea mays), Glycerine, Fresh Garlic (Allium sativum), Tea Tree oil, (Melaleuca alternifolia), *Limonene, Perfume.
Price: £6.75 for 75g
TIP: Pop your face mask in the freezer for a longer shelf life
In my opinion, both of these masks are great value for money as i've used them at least 5 times and applied a generous amount each time yet i still have plenty left over.
Have you tried these masks? if so, what are your thoughts on them?
