Skin Care On A Budget?!

Hey, guys!

How are you all doing? I am now back from my vacay, all rested and motivated to work hard on my blog for you guys! There will be summer themed posts coming up throughout this week, but today I’d like to talk about one topic that I’m sure all of you would love to read about.

How can we have a good skin care routine that is not too expensive but effective? I went to my local drugstore with that question in mind and picked up a few products to show to you in this budget friendly haul.


First Impressions: Lush Face Masks (3 min read)

Hey everyone, I hope that you’re all well.

Last Monday I published this haul which included the two Lush face masks that I will talk to you about today.


So it’s now exactly one week since I first used both face masks, therefore, this post is going to be focused on my first impressions. I will definitely post a review on them once I have used them for a little longer, all in order to give them a fair amount of time to work on my skin.


The first mask is the “Mask of Magnaminty”.



Here you can see how it turns out on the skin. It’s green (peppermint power) and has bits of various seeds to exfoliate while scrubbing.

It claims to fight all eruptions and outbreaks & make your skin clear. I decided to use it twice a week for the next few months and here is what I think after my first two applications:

The scent is very minty and fresh. For that reason I actually prefer to use it in the mornings – it does a good job of making you feel refresh and awake! I apply a fair amount of the paste on my face and my back, then keep it on for 15 minutes until it feels tight and dry.

The key difference which I can already see from using this mask is: it brings out all my blemishes and then instantly dries them out! Although it freaked me out seeing my skin with all the spots, the mask did what it says so far and fought them. Thank god. So far so good guys.

The second mask is the “Angels On Bare Skin”.


This one is an everyday mask and is meant to make my skin radiant and glowing.

I think that this scent is a bity too sickly because of the lavender extract… but hey if it’s going to help me out then I will bare through it. This paste is solid and crumbly, you have to add some warm water in order to break it down. I have been using it every night before I go to sleep for 15 minutes also. After using it for a whole week I still can’t see any difference to my skin? But, as I said I will continue for a few more months!


It is literally like melted oatmeal with an overwhelming lavender and chamomile scent on your skin!

Comparing the two masks today I definitely prefer the “Mask of Magnaminty”. Although I only use it twice a week it has already shown more results than the “Angels On Bare Skin” that I use daily.


A proper review of both masks will be up once I finish their tubs. I hope everyone liked this post and do let me know if you use any face masks right now? If so, I would like you to let me know in the comment section below!

See you!

Love, K.
