Top 3 Face Masks – Budget, Mid-Range & Luxe.

Is your skin in need of a treat?  Strapped for cash or feeling spendy?  These 3 face masks are my top picks, whatever your budget.

Good Things have impressed me lately with their Manuka Honey range, see review on the scrub here.  At just £5.99 (currently £3.99 in Boots), their Manuka Honey Radiance Face Mask is just as lovely. It provides the skin with nourishment and hydration, leaving it beautifully smooth. A real treat at a really nice price! If you love the smell of honey, this is definitely for you.

If you can push the boat out a little more, Sanctuary’s 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask will leave you with clear, soft, deeply cleansed skin.
If thermal masks aren’t for you and don’t like the way they heat up on the skin (this does get pretty hot), I would stay clear of this one. Personally I love a thermal mask and this is a great option for £10.50. If you want to try-before-you buy you can purchase a 15ml sachet for £3.00.

Feeling spendy and in the mood for a high end purchase? Aesop’s Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque is my top face mask choice. The first time I used this quite frankly it stung!  However bare with it.The 2nd, 3rd and 4th time I used this, there was no stinging at all.  Aesop recommend you leave this on for up to 15 minutes.  This is one of my favourite all time clay masks. It really works, tightening and brightening the skin, leaving skin so clear. If you love Glam Glow I think you will like this too.  You can really feel this working, it leaves beautiful smooth, radiant skin. I personally much prefer this to Glam Glow and feel it’s much better value for money.  This baby is definately a staple in my skin care kit and as you need the tiniest amount a tube will last ages.  At £27 it is more expensive than my other picks, however it is so worth it, if you can afford to splash out. The results speak for themselves.
