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.

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!’

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?

Review: Deep Cleansing Black Mask (Blackhead Removing Peel-Off Mask) – Infinitive Beauty

Hey girls,

I have been using a new blackhead removing peel off mask for about two months now. It is the Deep Cleansing Black Mask from a small company called Infinitive Beauty and it costs £9.99 for a 50g tube.

The black mask comes in a basic black 50g tube with a flip lid and it has a pink sticker with the Infinitive Beauty logo on the front as well as another sticker on the back with directions on how to use plus the ingredients list. The appearance of the tube itself is nothing special really but never judge a book by its cover, hey.

Infinitive Beauty say: ‘Restore a youthful glow with this powerful, deep pore, peel-off cleansing mask that purifies skin by removing dull surface cells, blackheads and impurities.’

Results/Thoughts:

After spreading the entire ‘black goo’ all over my face I could smell a very mild tar like smell although it didn’t smell badly. It had a sticky and runny consistency so I had to be extra quick when applying and spreading it over my face to avoid any of the mask dripping off and onto my clothes and surroundings. After about 5 minutes of the mask being on my face I could feel a tightening sensation in some areas on my skin, so I found it dries at different times, in different areas of your face. Ten minutes in and the whole mask had dried and it had a shiny black appearance, my skin felt super tight too. It is recommended that you keep the mask on until it had dried all over so I began to peel it off my face and I started at the bottom of my face near my jaw line, pulling outwards towards the centre of my face. This is when I had a mini panic attack! It was so PAINFUL! It seriously felt like I was being tortured. Ha! Like most girls, boys humans… I have tiny, little micro hairs all over my face and as I was peeling the mask of slowly, I was peeling off all the tiny hairs on my face too. This mask literally takes everything off your face, blackheads, whiteheads and (gasp)… hairs! An hour passed and I had peeled as much as possible off my face before I couldn’t stand it anymore as the pain was unbearable, especially around my jawline, upper lip and delicate eye area. My nose was no bother at all, it peeled off pain-free on my nose area. So, because I couldn’t bear the pain I washed the rest off the mask off with some warm soapy water.

Never again will I use this all over my face!!! It hurt like a bitch, man!!! I would rather have Mike Tyson punch me in the face twenty times than have to go through that pain again. I suppose if your face is completely hairless, like maybe if you use one of those facial hair removing wands or an epilator, you wouldn’t have the same problem as I did.

I have been using the mask on a weekly basis on my nose, ONLY as my nose was the only area it didn’t hurt. After peeling the mask off my nose, all nose junk, sebum and blackheads are visible on the peel after it has been removed. I love it when you can see all the crap that has been removed. The mask really does work at removing impurities and blackheads and I can definitely notice how cleaner and clearer my nose looks. I have been using it on my nose once a week for about two months now as I really think it has helped remove under the skin blackheads that I have tried so hard to get rid of and the more I use it, week by week the clearer the skin on my nose looks.

There is 50g of product in the tube and because I am only using the mask on my nose, I think this one tube will last me a very long time. I would recommend this mask and I would buy it again, although as mentioned above I would not put it all over my face again and instead apply it just on my nose, so if you do buy this black mask, you’ve been pre-warned, ha! For blackheads on your nose, it’s very, very good and I like it a-lot!

Where to buy?

You can get some here from Infinitive Beauty’s storefront on Amazon UK. It is £9.99.
