REVIEW: @neutrogenauk Hydro Boost Hydrogel Recovery Mask ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ I seem to focus my sheet mask reviews on obscure korean masks that are a pain to get hold of so I thought I'd review some high street brands that are accessible and affordable. Claims: A proven super hydrator made from 100% hydrogel enriched with HA and delivering the equivalent of one 30ml bottle of serum to your skin. Price: £3.50 Suitable For: Dehydrated, Dry, Normal, Oily Skins. Thoughts: I really enjoyed this mask, the introduction of a hydrogel mask to the high street is a welcome one as I love them and not many brands make them, in general I find them more hydrating because they don't dry out as the essence is absorbed by your skin, so you can keep them on longer. The Hydroboost mask is like a drink for the skin, it hydrates and plumps and fits perfectly as it comes in two separate pieces that clings to your skin without moving around. I think Neutrogena played down their formulation by only describing it containing HA, this mask has a couple of great ingredients which are higher in the ingredient list like seaweed extract, a skin conditioner which is also packed with vitamins and minerals and snow fungus, a supposedly superior naturally occurring hyaluronic acid which also supresses melanin helping with pigmentation. This is a great addition to Neutrogena’s Hydroboost family and there are two other sheet masks in the range if hydration isn't your main concern, this is a quick pick me up for the skin when it's in need of a treat and is so easy to get hold of in a skin-mergency. Any affordable sheet masks you want reviewing? #sheetmask #koreanskincare #skincareroutine #cute #beauty #blogpost #skincare #neutrogena #affordable #luxury

REVIEW: @BeGlow_uk Tia - 20% off

I am a big believer in not only treating your skin with products but with tools too, the TIA from BeGlow has been a great addition to my routine.

Claims: The device uses sonic dual phase technology delivering low and high frequency pulsations to help cleanse, lift and tone the complexion.

Price: £199.00

Suitable For: All ages and skin types

Thoughts: I use the cleansing brush side every night when I wash my face and not only is it so relaxing to massage with your cleanser after a long day I have really noticed my skin is less congested around my nose and chin as it can really get into the crevices and de-clogg anything that could cause congestion.

The tool’s opposite side has the contouring and firming plate and I use in my routine after I have applied my oil as it gives the metallic plate a good slip enabling it to massage better, you can definitely feel the difference using it on the contours or your face as everything just feels firmer and tighter. Another great use for the Tia is when i'm using a sheet mask, I press the firming plate on top of the mask to push the essence into my skin and give myself a face massage which amplifies the results of the mask.

I love this device and it is worth the splurge for someone looking to step up their skin care game and this does everything you need, it’s rechargeable so you don’t have to worry about batteries and I hardly need to charge it as it has such a great capacity. Definitely a thumbs up from me and it’s currently available from @lookfantastic with 20% off with the code: 20SKIN (not sponsored, i just found it when looking for stockists) #skincare #beglow #cleansingdevice #antiaging #skincareroutine #blogpost
