New masks from GLAMGLOW

GLAMGLOW is a fun beauty brand. That's not to say the products don't work, of course, but fun is a big part of this brand - and they are brilliantly instagram friendly. I've had the pleasure of trying two of their latest releases this last week - the #GLITTERMASK which is essentially the GravityMud Firming Treatment mask, just with loads of glitter. And why not? The glitter particles are suspended in the gel formula, and they won't clog pores. … [Read more...]

The Masque Bar

There's a real beauty buzz around face masks of late - in particular those sheet masks that are so popular in the Far East. Korean beauty regimes love their sheet masks, and the trend is now reaching the UK as well. We can't get enough of them, it seems. All the big brands have introduced sheet masks, and everyone from Victoria Beckham to the Kardashians are using them.

Radiance Revealing Masks

Face masks are one of those things that I have odd memories of. Always portrayed in movies as white or green chalky things, and always on women's faces at completely inappropriate times in almost every sitcom written. Just applied a facemask? That must be the doorbell and it must be the man I love at the door - you know the script! I can remember being taught how to apply a kaolin based chalky mask with my special brush as a beauty school student … [Read more...]
