Top 5 budget friendly face masks that actually work

Hello all you gorgeous, flesh covered, bundles of beauty.

In this post i’m going to share with you some of my favorite budget friendly face masks.
I have the most annoying skin type, combination that can be sensitive, so I need to use different masks for the different needs of my skin.

I’ll start with my most recent find and that is the Organic skincare doctor snail gel moisture mask

  •  You can get this from Holland & Barrett
  • This is one of my more pricey masks at £1.99 for a sachet or about £15-£20 for a 50ml pot
  • Best for any skin type

Even though this mask is good for all skin types it may not be the best for everyone. Not during but after use it can cause the skin to go red and have a slight sunburn feel to it. So if you don’t like a heated mask or the ‘sunburn’ feel then this one isn’t for you.
The ‘sunburn’ feel and redness only lasts up to about an hour after, for this reason I like to keep this one for times i’m not leaving the house or before bed. It leaves the skin feeling like a baby’s bum and looking noticeably radiant.

This one is another Organic skincare dotor product
and it is the dead sea mineral bio-plasma mud mask

  • Again you can get this from Holland & Barrett
  • For £3.99
  • This one is best for oily to combination skin

I dont know if this is just me beacuse my skin can be a bit senstive but this one can burn a little when first applied. It is a mud mask so its best for those with oily skin or oily areas of skin as it gets into the pores and removes excess oil which will prevent blackheads and spots. I dont use this one too often but definatly noticed a difference after using.

Another mud mask I absolutely love
and it’s the mudd (not a typo) original mask

  • I originally got this from Asda but they stopped selling it now which is annoyingly infuriating! So now I order from Ebay (ahh good old Ebay)
  • I get 12 10ml packs for about £3 and that is the cheapest I can find
  • Its best for oily to combination skin

I LOVE this mask, so much so i’ve completely run out and need to repurchase ( I couldn’t help myself and i’ve just bought more, it’s now on its way eeeeeek!). I don’t know what it is about the feel of this mask but I just really like the consistency and the way it glides on the skin. Even though clay/mud is initially used for oily skin types this for me is a good all rounder, giving my skin a fresh feel and brighter appearance after use.

I just had to metion one of these
Shhh! London blackhead peel off mask

  • I got mine from ebay ages ago so now I can’t find this brand for a price but they are all the same thing basically
  •  If you don’t mind waiting a few weeks then you can get this for as little as £1 from China, otherwise they vary in price.
  • Best for oily, acne and blackhead prone skin

This mask is very good for getting those pesky  little blackheads. This keeps the skin clear of built up oils and dead skin which can cause acne. As it’s not possible to reduce the size or get rid of pores this is a good product to help reduce the appearance of large pores.
Even though it won’t get every blackhead, you can always use a condone/blackhead remover to get the stubborn ones that are left.
You can also make your own peel off mask at home with some pva glue and activated charcoal, I have tried this method before and I would just stick to the bottle because I didn’t see much of a difference and it can be messy making the mask plus it took forever to dry. But just because something doesn’t work for me, doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work for you.
Its definitely worth a try.

I couldn’t make this list about skin care and not mention an nspa product
nspa intense hydration overnight mask

  • I get this from Asda
  • For about £6
  • It’s good for all skin types, even sensitive

This isn’t your conventional mask where you wear it for 10-15 minutes and wash it off. This one is more like a rich moisturiser. You apply it before going to bed and wake up with a face that looks completely replenished and radiant. I love the look of my skin after using this and for me it only took one use to see the effects. I have repurchased this a few times.

I sometimes also like to use a homemade mask made from various ingredients found in the kitchen. There are so many good things for your skin in raw ingredients such as coconut oil, olive oil, eggs, yogurt, honey, fruits and vegetables (FYI lemon juice is a amazing for brightening the skin) and there are so many different recipes to try for skins needs.

Here is a link for a couple of recipes for you to check out if your interested.

MONTHLY DRUGSTORE FAVOURITE

MARCH

I dedicate this monthly post to The Loreal True Match foundation

( I didn’t realise how crap and blurry this picture was )

For a long time I have used the Revlon colorstay and if you have seen any of my YouTube videos you know I love this foundation
BUT
I think I have found a new love in the True Match

Here are some specs:
* Its 30ml of product
* Comes in a pump
* There are 27 shades to choose from
* 8 Cool / 9 Warm / 10 Netral
* The price from superdrug is £9.99

I have the shade Beige rose 3C and it is the perfect colour for me.
If you take a close look at the liquid you will see it has a pink shimmer so i’m assuming this is the Skin perfecting pigments. It also has shade enhancers for shade matching precision.

It dries down to a matte with a very slight dew, if you would like more of a dewy look to skin I would suggest mixing in a bit of liquid highlight. If I wear this on its own I don’t feel like i’m wearing anything it is very light on the skin which I think is one of the great things about this product.
Its a medium coverage, is buildable, very blendable and leaves the skin silky soft to the touch.
It seems to enhance your natural skin instead of cover just it up, it looks so natural.
With the technology that captures the undertones of your skin, its hard not to fall in love with this foundation.

Here are a few pictures for you to see how good this foundation is.

In natural light

In artificial light

I just want to tell you a little bit about this website –> https://findation.com/

If you are an avid online shopper like me but are not sure on what shade of foundation you should be buying then this handy tool will be helpful in finding your perfect match of foundation. All you do is pop in some details about the previous foundations that you have used and what shade you have them in and it will come up with a match of a foundation you are are interested in getting, from drugstore brands to high end. I have used this everytime I buy a new foundation and every shade it has suggested has been the perfect one for me.
BTW this is not sponsored or anything, I just think this site is awesome and i’ve got this one saved in my favorites.

If you enjoy reading my blogs and watching my weekly videos please consider adding my website to your favorites list and subscribbing to my YouTube channel Here –> https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFICnmgOH97CxgGvFZ5oOhA

Dont forget to come back next month to see which drugstore product gets the spotlight

DIY – All about false nails – Pros, Cons and Tips

I have been doing my own nails since I was 16 and thought I may have a little knowledge to share when it comes to doing your own nails at home.

I have done gels, acrylics, silk, fiberglass, tips, halfs and full. So I am going to share with you some pros, cons and tips of doing your own nails.
These methods can be applied to natual nails or false tips.

GEL


For gels I used to apply a nail tip with glue, buff away the seam, apply any polish (99% of the time was a classic white french tip). Then I would apply a clear gel and cure under a uv lamp. This entire process for me would take about a hour and half, more if I wanted something fancy like nail art or rhinestones.

I loved the look of this finish. It was so glossy and smooth but ultimately I found with this method my nails didn’t last very long as gel isn’t the strongest and would split or break off completely. I am quite heavy handed and have my hands in water all the time with cleaning, washing and so on, that it would cause lifting which also didn’t help. For the time I spent doing my nails it just wasn’t worth it as they wouldn’t last a full week.
TIPS
Using this on top of a finished nail is the best use for this product as it keeps the polish/design on the nail with no chipping and leaves a lovely gloss finish.
Keep it away from the edges of the nail as you could have lifting

SILK and FIBERGLASS

  

I put these in the same category because they are both nail wraps and do the same thing.
Silk and fiberglass are strips of  material that you cut into pieces to fit the nail, then apply a liquid that is like a nail glue that adheres it to the nail, then you buff them smooth and apply a polish.

I found these both to be stronger than the gel and last a little longer too. I would also apply a layer of gel on top just for the glossy finish.
But again they would take quite a while to do taking about 2 hours to complete. The products I used came in strips so you had to cut the fabric yourself and as I have small nails this process was very fiddly. I have a lot of patience when it comes to stuff like this but in the end it just got manotamous and I hated having to do my nails. Also I found sometimes that you could see the weave of the fabric if you didn’t have a colour over it and that was the thing that cause me to change my method, as with the gel, it was time consuming and not worth the outcome.
TIPS
If you can find pre cut then it would be a better option as the cutting of this method takes a whle that could be saved with using pre cut pieces.
Make sure to use products that are of the same brand that way you know they are going to work/bond well together for the best finish.

ACRYLIC

Acrylic is a very fine powder that is mixed with acrylic liquid to create a sort of paste that you apply onto the nail, then dries solid. You tend to have to work fairly quickly with this as it dries quite fast. After some experience and mixing practise you pick it up and it becomes easier to work with. Once dry, you buff the nail so its smooth and file to shape. Add your polish or design. Again I would apply a gel layer on top just for the high gloss finish.
I used this method for a few years. It was the strongest of the nail products that I had ever used and lasted the longest. You can get it in every colour and with a lot of practice and creative flair can create 3D designs. Youtube has some amazing videos of people doing this.

It would take me approximately an 1hr 1/2 – 2 hours as the buffing takes the longest with this technique, but because the nails were a lot stronger which in turn lasted longer I felt it was justified. The problem is though, sometimes I would get tiny little air bubbles dry in the acrylic and then they would create little white spots on the finished nail, not a problem if you like a block colour but I liked the look of a clean classic french, so it didn’t look so clean with little white spots through the nail.

TIPS
With practise you get better and faster with this prcoess.
Again using the same branded products together will give you the best blend of product as they are made to work together. I’ve used odd brands together in the past and as a result the acrylic would not dry hard and it just buffed of like dead skin, all my work and time was wasted.
Being careful not to touch the skin around the edges to stop potential lifting. Scraping around with a tool should remove the excess product then dipping the brush in the acrylic liquid and wiping around the edges after should smooth it off.

FALSE NAILS

False nails come in various colours, shapes and sizes.

TIPS


These are best for people that already have good nails and just want a little more length while the natural nails grows out. They only adhere to the very tip of the nail so they won’t last too long or risk ruining the real nail underneath when trying to remove. These would not be very good for anyone with short nails.

HALF WELL


This type of tip is good for anyone wanting to apply an acrylic or gel on top because they will adhere to the false nail and natural nail which aids in the nail staying put a little longer (giving that there is no risk of lifting) while giving length to the nail.

FULL NAIL


By far my favorite nail to use. With this type there is no need for a layer of anything on top they are generally used on their own. You can buy them already shaped and coloured so you only have to apply them. They are cheap and easy to use.

This is the nail I now solely use, it only takes me about 35-45 minutes to apply including cuticle work and any designs I want to add. They last me about a week sometimes even upto 2 weeks depending on which kind of tip I use. Some natural colored nails can be softer than the clear or white so they break easier. Additionally if one does decide to pop off you can just quickly glue it back on and your good to go.
I have just started using these pre coloured nails from ebay.

You can get them here:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Coloured-Short-Medium-Full-Cover-Flexi-False-Nails-Free-Glue-UK/231026746692?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=530185870074&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

They come in all different colours and quantities. #notspons just love these nails!!
They are fairly strong, can be left as they are or you can paint on top of them. To these ones I like to add a natural white tip and a little glitter (obvs!) i’m really liking the natural nail look as I think it looks good with anything and any style. Also im getting into the timeless kind of style at the moment. Not at all relevant to this post just an FYI

OVERALL TIPS
*Using an oil or hand and nail cream every night should keep your false nails along with your cuticles from drying out.
*Try keeping your hand out of water as much as possible using rubber gloves whenever you can.
*Keeping a bottle of nail glue in your bag for emergencies, so you can do a quick fix while your out and about.
If you forget, you can always put a plaster/band aid on your finger to disguise your unmanicured finger until you get home.
*Always remove nails with acetone especially when using gel, acrylic, silk or fiberglass, it can be very damaging to your natural nails if you try and bite/pick them off.
*Ebay is an awesome place to buy false nails they are so cheap and you can get them in bulk.
*Keep your polish in a cool dark place. If you live in a hot country, storing it in the fridge will keep them from going off too soon.
*When applying false nails, if you haven’t got the correct size to fit, you should always use a bigger size and file it down than a smaller size which could cause discomfort.
