7h Heaven – Dead Sea Mud Mask – Hard Drying & Deep Pore Cleansing (Review)

7th Heaven Face Masks

I have been using 7th Heaven face masks since the beginning of time, back in the noughties when I was an ASBO teenager and I love them just as much now as I did back then; if not more. They’re is so many different masks to choose from and I think it is amazing how cheap the ‘sachets’ are to buy and the fact that they work really well considering how inexpensive they are – so everybody can ‘mask’ and afford them whatever their skincare budget may be.

    7th Heaven’s products are completely natural, contain no harsh chemicals and they are also suitable for vegetarians, cruelty-free and the brand DO NOT test their products on animals; which is another reason why I love them – they are natural, kind to animals and PETA approved.

Today, I’m reviewing one of my FAVE 7th Heaven masks and it is the Dead Sea Mud mask which has been recommended for oily skin. I have dry skin (sometimes combination) I can get a little oily on my t-zone & very dry everywhere else and the mask works just fine on both types of skin. The Dead Sea mud mask is rich in skin-loving nutrients, Dead Sea minerals and Lavender to help draw out toxins from the skin, unblock pores, normalise oily skin, soothe irritated skin and redness and leave skin looking squeaky clean and feeling soft.

7th Heaven - Dead Sea Mud Face Mask Reviews

 

Contains:

Kaolin – which is a natural, mild clay; is deep cleansing and draws out impurities and excess oil – without drawing too much oil out. It helps to cleanse and exfoliate debris on the skin and removes dead skin cells.

Dead Sea Mud – which has a high concentration of salts & minerals and help to relieve symptoms of skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema & acne. The rich mineral content makes it a great exfolliant and it helps to draw out toxins from the skin, restore the skins pH balance as well as improving elasticity, and minimising pores, fine-lines and wrinkles.

Lavender – is another ingredient that helps to relieve symptoms of skin disorders. It soothes irritated skin and calms redness. It is also an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory astringent and helps to normalise oil production and keep bacteria at bay too.

Seaweed – is a beneficial superfood that has anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Its anti-bacterial properties make it an ideal ingredient for fighting everything from acne to aging.

Dead Sea Salt – like dead sea mud; dead sea salt helps to relieve symptoms of psoriasis, acne and eczema. It is used for detoxifaction and anti-ageing and helps to reduce fine-lines and wrinkles, plump and hydrate the skin and reduce inflammation.

Bergamot – a fresh, clean smelling essential oil  used to treat and prevent skin infections, help relieve symptoms of acne, psoriasis, eczema and cold sores. It is also an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antioxidant..

 

Thoughts:

    I love a good hard-drying mask – I love the feeling on my skin when they have completely dried and this ‘Dead Sea Mud’ mask from 7th Heaven doesn’t disappoint. I reckon I have tried most of the 7th Heaven face masks but the ‘Dead Sea Mud’ mask is obviously one of my faves and I find myself repurchasing it again and again.

  It comes in  20g sachet and you can get about two applications from one sachet. There are also bigger tubes available to buy too but I’m happy enough with my sachets. The mask has an earthly, pale green colour, a thick consistency and a slightly fragranced scent to it – I’m not sure what it smells like but it smells okay. The ingredients state that it does contain parfum & a colourant although these are not artificial and are instead man-made so they are gentle on sensitive skin. To be safe, always do a patch test on your inner arm before using.

I apply the mask straight from the packet with my fingers after cleansing and it easily spread and glides over the skin. It is super creamy and non-drip too! I leave it on for about 15-20 minutes or until it is completely dry. The mask isn’t bue like the models on the packaging and it not as dark/grey-ish as other dead sea mud masks I have used which is because this one contains Kaolin Clay; so after about 5-10 minutes the greeny ‘mask’ starts to dry and it turns into a chalky white colour.

     After 15+ minutes the mask should be ready to wash off but if it hasn’t – it can be left on a little longer until it has dried completely. Before I wash the mask off, I like to gently rub my face with my fingers in a circular motion to exfoliate my skin and remove dead skin build-up then I just wash the excess off with warm water and a face cloth, (I use my WipeOut! MicroFibre Cleansing Cloth). Once I have removed all of the mask I splash my face with cold water to close my pores and my skin looks clearer, healthier, happier and brighter afterwards. It also feels smooth, soft and moisturised too.

    The Dead Sea Mud mask is definitely one of my favourite masks ever and I think it’s one that I will always use as I like how my skin looks after using. It really has worked on my skin and my skintone looks good and my complexion looks clear. I also love that the mask is super cheap; (mine was 99p from Asda), there are two applications in one sachet; it contains no nasty ingredients; and it is totally cruelty-free. What’s not to love!

Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money.

Where To Buy: You can get 7th Heaven face masks literally anywhere: Asda; Superdrug; Boots; Tesco; Sainsbury’s; Home Bargains; Amazon UK, etc… They are about 89p -£1.50 to buy and they have loads of different products to choose from!

7th Heaven – ‘Halloween’ Trick Or Treat Yourself Peel-Off Face Mask

Happy Halloween you little beauties!

Halloween is without a doubt one of my favourite holidays so you can imagine how excited I was when I heard a fave brand of mine – 7th Heaven had launched a limited edition Halloween themed face mask. It is the Trick Or Treat Yourself Peel Off face mask which comes in a 10 ml sachet and like the others has a generous amount of product – enough for 2 applications easy. The Trick Or Treat Yourself mask is actually a revamped version of the Cucumber Peel-Off mask and the packaging is super scary & creepy – the writing on the packaging is dripping in black & green slime and also features a ghoulish model wearing a face mask, some cucumber eyes and vampire fangs.

The Trick Or Treat Yourself mask is a natural, cruelty-free face mask which contains Evening Primrose Oil, Cactus Flowers, Massacred Lime Oil, Petrified Jasmine Flowers & Cut Up Cucumbers which help to remove dead skin and banish grime leaving a hauntingly beautiful complexion. 7th Heaven recommend the mask for oily & grimy skin and advise us to use the mask once a year to ward off evil free radicals, ha-ha,

The mask itself is a slightly transparent, bright green colour and has a sticky gel consistency with a lovely citrus lime scent. It goes on the skin clear and looks super shiny and you can feel it tightening the pores whilst it dries. I left it on for the recommended time of 25 minutes until it was completely dry and had fun peeling it off and removing dead skin cells. I love peel off masks as they are gentler than scrubs yet work just as good. I love how the Trick Or Treat Yourself mask smells and the fact that it doesn’t hurt when peeling it off – you can also see the dead skin on the mask after peeling. My skin looks a little better after using too. I usually have a clear complexion and it’s rare that I get blemishes or oily skin but the past two weeks my skin has been awful, my complexion has been really dull and I’ve had blemishes appear all over my face with dry skin on my cheeks and an oily t-zone. This mask has removed all traces of oil on my skin and moisturised the dry areas making my complexion look clearer, brighter and more balanced. I definitely recommend this Trick Or Treat Yourself face mask and I can’t wait until next Halloween to treat myself again!

DISCLOSURE: I bought this with my own money.

7th Heaven are running a Halloween GIVEAWAY. All you have to do is upload a ghoulish selfie on the website and add some scary stickers to win a £250 High Street Voucher. Competition ends 1st of November & the winner is picked on the 2nd. I’ve uploaded my creepy selfie & I’ve got my fingers crossed! Visit SkinScare.me for more info.

Sunday Pamper Sesh! – Passion Peel-Off Face Mask from 7th Heaven (Review)

It’s Sunday! Which means one thing:

PAMPER SESH! 💅🏻

I friggin’ love Sunday’s! I  park my bum on the couch and stay in all day like a hermit  watching Disney films and chick flicks… I take a nice long bubble bath whilst my roast dinner is cooking, YUM! I paint my nails, get the magic Nair out, do all my tan and shape my brows and I can’t forget a good old face mask of course!

Some of you may know already how much I love 7th Heaven face masks, they are vegan, Peta approved, cheap as chips, contain natural ingredients and they actually work!  I have been using them since I was a spotty teenager and I reckon I’ll still be face masking it when I’m 90 years old!

I’ve bought quite a few 7th Heaven face masks in my lifetime but I don’t think I have ever tried the Passion Peel-Off mask – so I thought I’d give it a go today.

14732215_10210525054906954_596388177763599262_n.jpg

7th Heaven say:

‘Pulped Pomegranate, Passion Flower, Raspberry Grape, Cranberry and vitamin E contain antioxidants that help protect skin, while pores and dead cells get a deep clean from our peel-off mask!’

14666074_10210525034106434_9120595379053447893_n

The Passion Peel-Off mask comes in a 10ml sachet like most of the masks from 7th Heaven, which I think is perfect for travelling and especially if you’re like me and like trying new products out. The mask itself is a rose-pink colour and it smells so sweet, almost like strawberry or raspberry jelly. It smells delish! It is also very sticky but after 20-25 minutes, the stickiness disappears and your left with a super shiny face. It looked good, my wrinkles disappeared for a while ha. It didn’t look lilac coloured like the models on the sachet is – instead it was quite clear and looked a little pinky. Also I usually get two applications from one sachet of 7th Heaven masks but this one only provides one.

Now if you read my post a couple of days ago you will understand why at first I was a bit apprehensive about using another peel-off mask as I had an awful time with the Black Peel Off Mask from Beauty Infinitive. I was worried that this would hurt too when I started peeling it off but I was relieved that it never; it actually felt pleasurable and satisfying, ha. I began peeling at my jaw line and had no problem whatsoever at removing the mask. Afterwards my skin looked so much brighter and the mask had peeled away all of my dead skin cell build-up on my face which made my complexion appear dull. I love how soft my skin feels too.  I like this mask, it is not my favourite one from the 7th Heaven face mask range but I will use/buy it again especially when my complexion needs a kick up the bum.

Where to buy?

I got mine from Sainsbury’s for super cheap, 79p a sachet but you can seriously get them everywhere. Amazon, Superdrug, Boots, Asda, Home Bargains… The list is endless!

What 7th Heaven face mask should I try next?

Sunday Pamper Sesh: Argan Oil Mud Mask – 7th Heaven (Review)

Hi girls,

I think I have quite an addiction to face-masks you know. I have purchased so many and although most are still sitting there unopened I still get the urge to buy more. I use a few different brands but I have noticed that I always go back to 7th Heaven face masks, good job they are cheap as chips, hey! So, on my latest shopping spree I picked up a few sachets of 7th Heaven face-masks, ones which I had not yet tried and added them to my ever-growing, face-mask draw. My skin has been a bit on the oily side and I have broken out in a few pimples here and there, they actually hurt. (I’m blaming the cheap ass Halloween make-up I used last week.) Basically, my skin is oily and problematic at the moment so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try out the Argan Oil Mud mask from my all-time favourite cruelty free brand 7th Heaven (aka Montagne ) to help soothe and balance out my skin as I look like I have a volcano erupting on my chin right now and it hurts like a bitch!

The mud mask is recommended for oily – combination skin and it can be used as a weekly, 10-15 minute treat for your face. The mud contains Kaolin Clay as well as Bentonite Clay and also includes Moroccon Argan Oil, antioxdant-rich Acai Berries and an anti-wrinkle favourite of mine, Rosehip Oil.

There are lots of other skin loving ingredients in the mud too.

First Impressions

The mud is beige, peachy and pale skin coloured, quite similar in colour to the foundation I wear and it smells sweet and pleasant although I did think it smelled a little artificial. It has a smooth, creamy texture and glides over the skin effortlessly and it felt soothing on my skin once applied. In one 15g sachet there should be enough for two applications, depending how much of the mud you use. Just be sure to seal the sachet up so the mud doesn’t dry out. I fold mine over at the top and use a kirby grip to keep it sealed.

Results:

Five minutes after applying the mud, the beige coloured mud lightened to an off-white, chalky colour and I began to feel the mud drying in some areas with a tightening sensation. After around ten minutes the mud had completely dried white all over.

14939355_10210743690652711_6134754829700631005_o

I left the mask on for around 15-20 minutes and found it washed off easily with warm water and a face cloth. My skin felt super soft and clean afterwards and it looked a lot brighter and less oily. I don’t usually get oily skin but after using cheap Halloween make-up last week my skin has been problematic and greasy and I as mentioned above I broke out in a couple of spots, so this mask has been perfect for balancing my oil levels. My spots don’t feel as irritated and as sore as they did either and my complexion looks better overall. I will definitely use this mask again and I think I will buy the bigger tube next time instead of the sachet.

Where to buy?

I got mine from Sainsbury’s for 79p a sachet although they are pretty much available anywhere. Home Bargains stocks them as does ASDA, Superdrug and you can get the full size 175g tube for £5.99 on Amazon UK right here.

Sunday Pamper Sesh: Creamy Coconut Face Mask – 7th Heaven (Review)

I remember when I first discovered Montagne Jennesse / 7th Heaven Face Masks’ once upon a time when I was a rebellious teenager. I would buy one every week out of my pocket money, picking a different one each time. ❤

Somewhere along the line, as I got older and started trying out different skincare regimes – I stopped doing my weekly ‘Pamper Sesh’, where I would put a face mask on, some sliced cucumbers on my eyes and chill out in my bedroom listening to Britney Spears on the radio. Those were the days. 😂

I saw the masks again while out shopping today and I thought I’d have a blast from the past and start my ‘Pamper Sesh’ back up again – minus the Britney this time round!

I’ve stocked up on loads of face masks to try out but the first mask I’m going to review is the luxurious ‘Creamy Coconut’ one, which is for tired and dry looking skin. I suppose it would work well on oily / combination skin too.

I decided to try the Creamy Coconut mask out first because I just love coconut. Coconut products have always been a god-send for my skin, especially for treating my psoriasis.

WP_20160126_00_06_15_Pro

Results

When I first applied it, the mask had a cream like consistency that gradually hardened and dried a little. The dried effect was nothing like that of a clay mask, which I’m not happy about. I really love it when you can’t move your face or smile or frown when wearing a clay mask…. I’m so weird!

WP_20160126_04_52_49_Pro

The scent of the mask is beautiful as you can imagine. It filled the room with a potent coconut smell and my boyfriend asked why he could smell coconuts all over the house. Ha. DUH.

It is recommended to leave the face mask on for 15 minutes but as I was far too busy chillin’ – I left mine on for about an hour.

Warm water removed it effortlessy and after patting dry, my skin was noticeably smoother and softer to touch as well as being a little bit brighter than beforehand.

I’m definitely going to add the Creamy Coconut mask to my beauty regime. #LOVE ❤

What’s Good

The Creamy Coconut Face Mask is not only filled with pulped coconut but shea butter and ground cocoa too. Packing pure goodness!

WP_20160126_00_16_36_Pro

My favourite thing about 7th Heaven’s Face Masks’ is that they have not been tested on animals. PETA have also certified that the face masks have been made cruelty free!

I like. 👌

7th Heaven Face Masks are in 15 ml sachets and you could probably get about 2-3 applications from one sachet, all depending how much you apply.

The face masks also do what they claim to. My skin is much more rehydrated and happier now after only one use. The zombie complexion has lessened!

What’s Not Good

I’ve got no complaints! All gravy baby! 👌

Where To Buy

You can buy them everywhere; Asda, Superdrug, Boots, Home & Bargains as well as 7th Heavens’ website – here.

How Much?

I got mine for about £1 each I think. If you’re not from the UK – unlucky you! I’ve heard they are much dearer to buy in Australia and the USA, costing $6 or more which is madness! I suppose we are good for something, eh! 😊

I nearly forgot to mention – after having a browse on their website I noticed that face masks are not the only products made by 7th Heaven, they also do hair masks, men’s face masks, scrubs and soap amongst other things. I really can’t wait to try out the ‘Dead Sea Salt Bust Firming Gel’ (not that I need it – the girls are firm – said the liar 😉) as well as the ‘Peach Oil Cleansing Soap’. LUSH 😍

What’s your favourite 7th Heaven Face Mask girl’s? Which one shall I try next? 😘

Are there blogging gals that have tried any of the other products? Feel free to pop your ‘review links’ below so I can have a read… ❤

Well, dolly-birds, until next time!

Love…

Katie ❤
