A mask to save the day

I love pampering my skin with occasional skincare treatments and what better than indulging in one at your own comfort at home? This is something I've always believed in. Invest in good quality skincare and treat yourself to a facial whenever you like.

Whenever I am in mood for one of these treatments, I splurge on one of the two Liz Earle masks that I got during their skin consultation sessions. I have a Deep Cleansing Mask and an Intensive Nourishing Mask.

I use these according to how my skins feeling at that time. For example, if its dehydrated I opt for the nourishing mask and when it is breaking out or prone to spots, I opt for the deep cleansing mask.

However my favourite way to use these, keeping in mind I have combination skin is to apply the deep cleansing mask on the congested/spot prone areas and applying the nourishing mask to the rest of my face. That way I am treating different areas of the face according to their special needs.

The rose-scented geranium makes this mask smell delicious! Although it contains clay, it is not thick or gloopy, in fact quite thin which I really like. It spreads easily and does not tighten my face like all other clay masks in the market. It does a great job of keeping the skin clean and regulating facial oils.

I also like to use this as a spot treatment and it does a pretty decent job at drying out any pimples. I like to remove this with a damp sponge.

This looks like every other face cream really! I love that her masks don't have that typical mask texture which makes it less hectic to use. I don't find this one has any scent to it, again applies evenly and leaves my skin hydrated and feeling so velvety.

The unique thing about this is that it absorbs into the skin where it needs it the most and on my skin it was almost invisible in 10 minutes with just some residue on the cheeks! I like to remove this mask with a wet muslin cloth as that's how it works best I feel.

Now that I raved so much about the textures, have a look at them below.

Both the masks start working effectively within 10-15 minutes, which means you don't need to commit to a time consuming schedule. I love their texture, smell and ingredients and would happily recommend.

They are both priced around £12.

Good idea with using different masks for different parts of the face. I have combo skin and usually use one mask all over. I might have to try that sometime!
