HOW TO REMOVE TAN FROM SKIN? THE FACE MASK I SWEAR BY

Have a wedding or any other event to attend and wondering how to remove tan from skin at home? This is for you!

I believe every complexion be it fair or dark, everybody is beautiful. I am sure you believe in that too. But sun tan might be a little issue for some, especially if you are someone like me, you might look ghastly. Rather than getting that beautiful tan, I look ashy and I mean it. I sometimes need an anti-tan when I stay in the sun for a long time. In such situations, this is one face mask I believe in. So this post is about one of my most favourite anti-tan face masks which really works. The face mask has other amazing benefits too. I will be listing the benefits of the ingredients used at the end, so you have an idea.

Mix all the ingredients together to form a paste. You can add lime juice too if you wish. Apply this mask on your face and neck and leave it for 10-15 minutes. After that rinse it off. If you wish to exfoliate you can gently massage this mask while removing. You can also use this mask on your entire body.

You can make your rice flour by grinding rice at home. I have mentioned a rice flour that you can get online in case you are lazy or don’t want any mess. But I make rice flour at home and suggest you do the same.

THE FACE SHOP CERAMIDE COLLAGEN FACE MASK REVIEW

thebeautymascot/thefaceshopceramide

 

When someone says Korea, the first thing that comes to our mind (apart from the Korean dramas and the cute actors) is the beautiful skin of the people there. We have been constantly trying to figure out the secret to their flawless skin and have  been introduced to a lot of Korean brands now. One such popular brand  is The face shop. Today I am going to review the Ceramide collagen face mask from the face shop.

The Face shop claims

A salon perfect facial from the comfort of home. This convenient mask powder for all skin types hydrates for a salon perfect facial from the comfort of home. Formulated with Ceramide and botanical collagen, this pack hardens to seal out air, leaving skin firm and hydrated.

Ingredients

Diatomaceous earth, Algin, Kaolin, Magnesuium Carbonate, Potassium Carbonate, Bentonite, Cellulose Gum, Alcohol, Ceramide 3, Soluble Collagen, Methyl Paraben, Phenoxyethanol, Allantoin, CI 7163, Propyl Paraben, Laminaria Japonica Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Extract.

My review about the face shop ceramide collagen face mask 

I bought this face mask when I was pregnant along with some other face masks and totally forgot about it, until recently when my husband discovered it from somewhere . So I decided to use this face mask mainly because it was almost reaching the expiry date. After using the mask I am really impressed with the results, I must say. Lets get straight to the review.

The packaging is really simple, comes in a see through packet. Once you open the mask remember to store the leftover powder is a dry glass jar or anything similar rather than storing it in the pack itself. This ensures your product stays nice and dry for a longer time. The face mask comes in a powder form and is really very easy to prepare. All you have to do is mix the mask powder in warm water and make a paste out of it. The packaging says to prepare the mask in the ratio of 1:2.5 ,ie, 1 part mask powder to 2.5 parts water, but I think that ratio does not work because the mask formed is so thick and lumpy. You have to add water at least in the ratio of 1:3 or add more water to get the desired consistency. But remember don’t add too much water as it will be a little difficult to peel off the mask later, a thick paste is what you need.

While adding water, there are chances of lumps being formed so you have to take care of that. Once the mask is ready, apply this onto your clean face. Remember to apply the mask immediately after preparing it because otherwise the mask will solidify . The reason why the mask hardens fast is to lock moisture. So apply a thick layer of mask as soon as you can and keep it on for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes the mask will be dry and hardened. The next thing you have to do is peel off the mask. The mask comes off really easily, if you have applied a thick layer. The dried mask is kind of rubbery, which I find funny.

The mask has quite a strong floral scent, which reminds me of a room freshener we had when I was a small kid. I don’t have any problem with the smell, but let me remind you the smell is quite dominant so if you are someone who hate strong scents in your mask, then this one is not for you.

This face mask from TFS contains some awesome ingredients, two main ingredients in the mask are Ceramide 3 which helps to keep the skin moist and supple, and Collagen which helps to reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles  and fine lines. But this mask contains parabens which is definitely a drawback.

Now you ask me the results. I was truly ahh-mazed by the results. I expected my skin to be moisturized, which was true. But to my surprise my skin also felt tight, I could also feel my otherwise wide open pores to be tight and closed. It did not brighten my skin though, which I really did not expect. But my skin felt smoother, softer and so tight! Yay! I really didn’t think of writing a review about this face mask from the face shop, I haven’t even taken proper pictures to be honest, but the results were so good I had to share with you guys. The price of the face mask is another plus, so affordable.

Overall verdict

I really like the Salon effect Ceramide collagen face mask from the face shop. It really did give a salon-like effect to my skin which felt soft, plump, hydrated and firm. It also made my pores less visible and the results lasted a few days.This mask is for all skin types but particularly good for people with dry/matured skin. I will rate it 4.8/5,Highly Recommended!

 

LUSH LOVE LETTUCE FACE MASK REVIEW

thebeautymascot/lovelettuce

 

I have a love for natural face masks. If you are not new to my blog, you probably know that! I have already written posts about a few of my favorite face masks which I make from natural and easily available ingredients. But it is not always possible to make my face masks because I have a 15 month old who is so hyperactive that sometimes I just wish she had been lazy! In that case when my skin is dull and needs some life, I opt for ready made face masks. What makes Lush standout of the other such skincare brands is definitely that they are made from the freshest and most natural ingredients. Yes, you can enjoy and benefit from the Lush face masks without being guilty of slathering on a bunch of chemicals. Today I am going to review one among a few of Lush’s face masks- Love Lettuce face mask! (more…)
