The Incredible FaceMask review

 
So, A while ago I got offered to try out MayBeauty's The incredible face mask, and I thought why not? Since I've heard lot about it and seen it here and there.
 
So what does it do?
Well, It's a peel off mask that is said to remove blackheads, acne, dead skin and oil.
and does it do that?
 
That's actually a hard question for me to answer since I don't realyl struggles with any of that, except for the blackheads, and then they're not super noticable anyway. So I brought in the big guns and asked my SO if he was interested in trying it aswell with me, since he does have oilier skin and struggles more with acne/pimples and blackheads.
But for the sake of this review I tried it on first and talk about what I thought of it to begin with :)
 
And you'll get a 30% off the price if you either klick here, or put trickfacemask30 in the checkout :)
 
You can either get the "try it out package" which is 249 sek and contains 5 sheets, a brush and a guide.
Or you can get the bigger one for 379 sek which contains 12 sheets, a guide and a brush.
 
 
The instructions are very easy to follow. and they're not kidding about the "can remove facial hair" part, I got to learn it the hard way haha!
 
 
The mask is completely black, and it actually cam as a chock for me when I first opened it up haha! I must have totally missed that they said it was black when I read the email. either way, Itäs easy to apply, and one sheet goes a loooong way!
And the brush actually makes it easy to apply, it's not fiddly like some other brushes can be, And it made it kind of even :)
Although, I do not recommend putting it all over the face as I've done above, Because it will cling on to the fine hair everyone have on  their faces and rip them off when you are taking the mask off, it was a very painfull process, so I would recommend putting it where you need it instead of all over the place, or do patches with it.
 
 
once it dries you'll feel how the mask is pulling on the skin, kinda like it's givin you a facelift, and every tiny move you do  with the face is a workout, but now comes the fun par! peeling it off and see the result!
 
Like I said; the peeling of the mask process is kind of painful to do, and I wanted it off in once piece, which I managed. and I'm sparing eveyrone how the mask looked on the inside, it was nasty haha! it definetly removed almost all of my blackheads, especially those arounf my nose.
 
here's a before and after, And I know that they are in completely different lightning, But you can actually see the difference anyway.
So this is a good product, but I use it more like a pore strip shen I use it, since I really don't need it all over my face. And speaking if all over the face:
I recommend doing this a couple of hours before if you're going out. Because it does rip off the finer hair on your face, so you will be all red an patchy ( you can see a bit on the after photo above)
but all in all I do recommend this actually. especially if you have a bit more oilier skin or struggle with a lot of blackheads.
 
oh! And my So?
Well, It did work on him, and the result showed a lot more on him than it did on me. We tried the "patch" system instead og whole face covered, it seemed to work a bit more actually, But it still pulled on the small hairs, but we noticed that if you rip it off like a bandaid it's not as painful, well it is, but you don't really react to it like when you're slooooowly pulling it off..
Unfortunately I do not have any pictures of him and how it looks afterwards..

The Body Shop All in one InstaBlur

 
 
Okay so. I got this interesting little thing in th Body Shop Calendar last year ( I know, I sucked at uppdating it, but life happened)
Anyway.
And I got quite surpriced, since I've heard alot of thing about this, that it's supposed to be really good and really keeps what it promises, and makeup goes on soooo much easier with this than with any other primer. And I've even seen people comparing this to Benefits Porefessional primer and saying that Instablur beats porefessional (!!!)
So of course I jumped a bit with joy when I saw that I got this.
But it is worth the hype? is it really better than Porefessional that is my go to primer?
 
well. I honestly haven't used it that much yet. But I can give you some of my impressions.
 
 
Let's look at the texture first shall we. it's grainy. Or well. not grainy like coarse and such. But it looks grainy compared to other primers I've used that's smooth. And  it is a bit on the dry side aswell, again compared to other primers I've used.
But it have that same silicone feel to it like the primers I've tried before, and this click I've got here is more than enough to the whole face, so a little goes along way, which can be good when it comes to such and expensive product.
 
And The Body Shop promises that this will moisurize you face aswell as minimize fine lines and get rid of extra shine. And since I am 25 and have been smoking half of my life I do have some fine lines here and there, as most people in my age do. So if it could really minimize that would be awesome, right?!
 
 
well. I did do a before and after picture of it the other day when I was applying my makeup, and as you can see it is actually doing it's job!
But how does it feel ones you actually put the foundation and such on top of it?
Well. I feel like it glides on, and slips of quite easily compared to Benefits Porefessional. I might actually do a real comparison between those two where I do half and half to see it side by side.
but clearly it is doing something! My pores aren't as petruding, and my nosewrinkles I get from squinting my eyes all day is barely noticible.
 
So it is worth the price?
Honestly? I can't answer that. I might buy this again, I might not. I fell in love with The Porefessional as soon as I put that thing on my face, so changing it up is not for me right now. (to quote Stewie Griffin; I don't like change D:)
But I'm definetly going to try this out more now that I actually do have it!
 

Lush - Rub Rub Rub

 
 
What Lush says about it:
"Scrubby sea salt and mimosa shower wash
Rub Rub Rub is a bit of a variation on the normal shower gel. For one, it’s so thick we put it into a tub for handy scooping in the shower. Secondly, it’s a bright blue, supremely softening, exfoliating sea salt shower scrub to revive your skin. Sea salt is extra cleansing, mineral-rich and softening for the body; you can even use it as a shampoo in a pinch! Our rubby scrub is startlingly refreshing, with a dash of lemon juice and the tropical scent of mimosa blossoms for a light, blossom-scented wash and smoother skin."
 
Ingredients:
Fine Sea Salt (Sodium Chloride) , Sodium Laureth Sulfate , Fresh Organic Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum) , Water (Aqua) , Sodium Cocoamphoacetate , Jasmine Flower Infusion (Jasminum officinale) , Mimosa Absolute (Mimosa tenuiflora) , Orange Flower Absolute (Citrus Aurantium amara) , Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale) , Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum) , Lactic Acid , Lauryl Betaine , *Limonene , Fragrance , FD&C Blue No. 1 , D&C Red 28
 

So what do I think about it?

 This is a good scrub, It might feel a bit weird in the beginning, since the salt have a totally different feel to it than most other scrubs have. It drags off the dead skin and leaves you with a smooth and clean skin.
I've noticed that it kind of itches on myself. Could be someting in it that my skin reacts to, or I don't know. I don't get red or so because of it, it's just when I'm using it that the itchines is there.
It does however hurt like f if you accidentlially scrub it over a wound of some sort.
 
I did try it for the hair once too, just to see if it really would add volume. And now, I'm not the one that really needs volume into my massive amount of hair. But I tried it anyway and ended upp looking like someone from the 80's with a big ass perm. Pretty cool, But not for me, Maybe wuld help if I need more volume for a certain hairdo or similar.
 
Even though I really like this product I have to say that I feel like it dissapears faster than what I want it to. I'm really carefull of how much I use of the things and soemhow I feel like this will be empty in no time. Sure, the price isn't that bad and you do get alot, but I feel like you need alot to make it last all over your body. Could just be me.
 
And even though it might empty out quicker I still like it, And I will buy it again :)
