Hey guys I hope you’re all well? I don’t talk much about face masks on this blog, which is strange really as I actually use one about once a week! If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me post mask-Monday pictures with various different ones I’ve tried. And if you don’t… pop along and follow me! 🙂
Face masks are something I’m not at all brand loyal with. Although I have certain skincare brands I love and certain ones I know don’t work for me, when it comes to face masks I will try them all. I like trying different brands, different types (such as sheet masks etc) and ones which claim to have different benefits – from smoothing to brightening or firming. Today I’m sharing OohArr face masks with you, and showing you them all in action!
OohArr Face Masks
OohArr kindly sent me three face masks to try (and I then got another two in my March You Beauty Box) – although I was given these products for free, as always all opinions are honest and my own. I will never tell you I like a product, or that it works well, if it doesn’t! OohArr are (are, are, are, lol!) a new beauty range from Amphora Aromatics, using natural ingredients and essential oils, with retro-inspired packaging. All their products are made in the UK, and are cruelty-free. Firstly, I really like their packaging. It’s kind of pop-arty and I like the simple graphics and bright pops of colour.
Rosie Glow – Deep Cleansing Face Mask
This was the first one I tested as I liked the pink packaging! This face mask aims to give the skin a deep cleanse, leaving it rejuvenated. It contains marula oil which helps protect skin from environmental damage, together with palmarosa essential oil to repair any existing damage. Dead sea salts and natural clay help detoxify and draw out impurities from blocked pores.
This mask is a browny pink colour and smells like turkish delight (a sort of sweet, rose scent)! It was easy to apply as it wasn’t too runny. Unusually, instructions were to add the mask to damp skin, rather than dry skin. After 15 – 20 minutes, you can rinse it off. This one left my skin feeling so soft and smooth, and also quite moisturised (I find some other masks I use leave my skin feeling a bit tight and crying out for moisturiser)!
Star Glow – Skin Polisher Face Mask
Star Glow is a vitamin and mineral rich polishing face mask. It contains almond and argan oil, which moisturise and condition the skin, together with aloe vera, which is cooling, refreshing and calming. Again, the ingredients are all blended together with natural clay, to detoxify skin and draw out any impurities.
This one was my favourite scent – it smells amazing. Containing vanilla and honey, it smells like a rich vanilla yogurt… in a good way! It left my skin feeling lovely and soft, and smelt so good that even the cat approved… here she is sniffing my face!
Dead Sea Cooler – Deep Cleansing Face Mask
Finally, Dead Sea Cooler is another deep cleansing mask. It contains a blend of peppermint, tea tree and witch hazel for bright, clear skin. Dead sea salts help to open pores, detoxify skin and draw out any impurities. This mask should be great for helping clear up any spots, as the tea tree and witch hazel are ingredients commonly used in spot-fighting products! I actually tried it when I had a big break-out on my chin and it did definitely help reduce the swelling and redness.
The mask also contains bamboo powder to exfoliate the skin, together with sweet almond and argan oil to nourish. As it contains peppermint, this is a very strong, minty smelling mask – be careful not to get it too close to your eyes as it will definitely sting! I probably liked this scent the least – it’s a nice, invigorating scent, but I found it a tiny bit overpowering so close to my nose! I think a lot of people would love it though, especially if used in the morning as it would wake you right up!
You can feel little bits of texture in this mask, so it also exfoliates as you’re smoothing it on and again when you’re rubbing it off as you remove it. This one left my skin feeling really fresh and clean, but definitely in need of a moisturiser straight afterwards (which is fine, as it’s a great time to moisturise. Your skin is primed and prepared to soak up all the nourishment after a mask).
The masks cost £1.20 per sachet, which I think are intended to be single use, but I found that each one I tried contained enough for two applications no problem. I think that’s a great price for two masks, and given all the the great active ingredients. I’d definitely buy these again in the future (and hopefully they will make some more to add to the range as well)! If you fancy trying them yourself, you can find them here.
