Cheap & Cheerful Facials

I think we can all agree that it’s well & truely winter.  The 1 degree weather & impossible to walk on icy paths confirmed it for me.
Have you noticed any other changes? Like your skin feeling dryer than normal?  I suppose it’s only normal if we’re going from the frosty outdoor temperatures to the cozy indoors. 
That’s why we’re talking about face masks today & giving our mugs a treat during these cooler climes.
I must admit I’m not a habitual user of facemasks so when I do dabble it’s all a bit exciting.

When I was in Superdrug during the week stocking up on things I didn’t really need, I spied their own range of face masks, I was surprised at how many types there was.

The eternal child in me wanted to pick the chocolate based ones, but I resisted & opted for these 3 instead. Cucumber Cooling Clay Mask, Detoxifying Dead Sea Mineral Mask & Dead Sea Purifying Clay Mask.

I couldn’t very well try them all out myself so my pal steph was a willing assistant.

We gave our faces a quick wash beforehand, made sure our skin was dry then applied the mask.  It felt really cool & refreshing going on.  It said to leave 10-15 minutes before washing off but mine took 20 minutes until it was dry.  To be honest I was happy enough to leave it on as long as possible.  I wet a face cloth in warm water to help wash it off, which took a wee while.  When my face was clay free I washed it again with the Nutrogena Pink Grapefruit Face Scrub I reviewed the other day to make sure I’d gotten it all off, then applied the Nutrogena Pink Grapefruit Moisturiser
We both give it the thumbs up.  Our skin felt very fresh & soft afterward.  It claims to help eliminate impurities & soothe skin & I’d concur with this. 
Plus these masks are ok for regular.  They’re 99 pence each & currently being sold 3 for 2 so it’s a lovely inexpensive treat we can give our faces.

Have you used this range?  Which one did you choose?

Cheers for stopping by, I’d love to hear back from you all.

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Range

Hello there!

Like most people I’m always looking to save a few pounds when shopping, so when I was in Superdrug the other day I spied a right bargain.

All Neutrogena products were two for £6, I couldnt resist at this price.

After alot of debating I finally chose the Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub & the Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Oil Free Moisturiser.

I used the scrub for the first time this morning, it smells absolutely amazing, the citrus notes really worked a treat with helping to wake me up.
The moisturiser has a very subtle but fresh scent of pink grapefruit also & it absorbed into my skin almost immediately. So much so I actually ended up putting on a little more.
It claims to “reduce & prevent spots & blemishes.” With skin looking smoother & the complexion improving due to its Microclear technology.

I’ll see how I get on with my new regime over the next few weeks & report any improvements in a December empties update.

Have you tried anything from the Neutrogena range? How did you find it?

Thanks so much for stopping by. I’d love to hear your views & opinions.
