This festive season can be hard for all of us and or skin cam really be on which struggles and we do not seem to take a lot of time to pamper it for some reason. A couple of months ago now soap and glory released a whole new collection of masks which are designed to target certain problems in the skin. I for one really need to treat my skin a lot more because of the fact at the moment with the cold weather, stress and late nights it is all taking its toll on my skin. This is the reason why I have pulled these products out of my stash which I am going to be able to use.
The first one up is this declog mask which is going to help me all the rubbish out of my face including any breakouts which may be lingering under the skin which of cause we do not want to cause the blackout more in this festive season. I know that I will be seeing people who I have not seen in a long time which means that I really want my skin to look amazing. This is a peel-off mask so I know that when I come to use it I am going to have so much fun looking at the all of the gunk that will come out of my face. I think these are a complete bargain because you get two little pots of £4 which means you can do it twice or have some couples time and do the masks together.
More sleep is something that I need for sure with looming university deadlines on top of early morning and late nights a toddler and getting ready for Christmas. I picked up a couple of these which are eye masks which are going to help firm, de-puff and brighten this area. This will help me look less tired and banish thoughts unwanted black circles and tired eyes which I am rocking all too much this season even concealer is struggling to cover this. I think these are something which I am going to repurchase is they work because tons of sleep is not something which I will be getting for a while because of how busy and crazy busy my life is. These eye masks come in at £3.50 so I think they will only be used as a treat maybe once a week or something.
Moisture is something which my skin struggles within the winter because of the fact that the weather is so cold. So when I saw that Soap and Glory had created some moisture sheet masks I knew that I had to get that one. This mask will help moistures the skin as well as recondition it meaning that it should not get as dry in the future because of the hyaluronic acid which helps lock in moisture. These masks do come in two which means that you can make it fit your face completely as this is something which I have struggled with in the past when using sheet masks. I think this is one which I am going to end up having repurchasing in the future because I really end up losing a lot of moisture on my face in the winter. This mask again is £3.50 which I do not think is very expensive for the sake of your skin looking good.
The final facemask which I have is the pore refining mask this is one which is going to help me with any breakouts which I have. This face mask again as a sheet mask which helps to smooth your skin and perfect your complexion; leaving it soft and hydrated too. Which sounds like something which I really need to be able to do have the best skin which I can have. From what I have heard this is a sheet mask which is soaked which means that your skin can get the most out of using a mask which is something which you really want when you are paying £3.50 for a once use mask.
Have you tried any of the soap and glory facemasks if so what did you think of them?
Tolietries are something which I seem to some how have a huge collection of I know I purchase every single Lush collection but the truth is I still have not looked fully at the Christmas collection and it has been out a whole month now. I think I am actually falling out of love with the company because of the fact that I have so much of the brand.
The only problem is that I end up having the extra stuff for months, sometimes years.For example I have just used some Lush snow fairy shower gel which was out of date at the end of 16 which is over a year ago. This is kind of when I realised that there is a problem and because of the fact that I am actually saving up for a house and instead of spending money on toiletries when I could be spending the money on Christmas presents for people who I need to be still get or putting it in the savings account for the house.
I know that is is very likely with Christmas coming up in just a few of weeks away I am more likely to get even more products which is something which does not bother me but due to the fact that I have so much already I feel like I should be doing something in order to reduce the amount I have. I only want to use some products up I do not want to throw things away for the sake of it.
I will be allowed to purchase items should I need them and have nothing else which could do the job for example if I run out of toothpaste I will allow myself to go out and repurchase it I am not going to try and not brush my teeth for example or use something else which will not do the job. At the end of the month I am going to report what I have actually been able to use up at the moment while I write this I know there is a fair few products which are nearly empty that with a kick up the bum I will be able to finish this month.
I am hoping if this is a success to be able to do it for a few months next year in order to be able to get my collection down because currently I know it is out of control and I am dreading having to move it when I move house hopefully next summer because I know some of my bath bombs will damage in transit so I hope to be able to use them up. Also it will mean that I should have even more money in my pocket as I will not need to repurchase till a lot is gone.
Have you ever gone on a no buy toiletries?
