So, before I give in to Christmas posts, I’ve a couple more wonderfully pumpkinny Autumnal posts for you. This time, a review.
I ADORE facemasks. I love them. I really do. I’m not hugely into pampering, and although I like to look after myself, I’m not much of a girly girl. That said, if I do want to give myself a little extra love and attention, a facemask is my weapon of choice, and Montagne Jeunesse / 7th Heaven is my favourite brand. They do so many varieties, creams, gels, exfoliants, peel off’s, sheet masks, self-heating etc. and the scents and results are to die for.
So, when I saw this exclusive Pumpkin Pie Sauna Mask in Primark a couple of weeks ago I could not say no! For a bargainous 90p too! Amazing!
Normally it never would have lasted two weeks, but I didn’t have time to use it before going on honeymoon, and so have made the most and had a relaxing 15 minutes now I’m back. Ahhhh.
It’s very true to its name with the smell, it is a proper pumpkin fragrance, so if you’re only into the sugar and cinnamon elements of these types of smell, this may not be for you. I LOVE it. It’s real pumpkin with just a hint of sugar and spice, and because of the warming effect it has on your skin you feel like you’re wearing a fresh baked pie! Mmmmm.
This also has really fine exfoliating particles in it – it feels a little grainy when you put it on, though not in a bad way, and really has an effect when you rinse off, but it leaves the fresh, smooth, glowy skin we all want.
The packaging claims it ‘Gently warms for a fresh, radiant glow’ which is exactly what my skin needs now I’ve returned to chilly old Blighty. It’s gone from sun soaked and regularly sun-creamed, to parched and chilled, so a little TLC is in Auuorder.
It’s the usual method for the mask, thoroughly cleanse and leave the face wet, apply the mask, chill out for 10-15 minutes and rinse off. I always wait the maximum time, and usually pick a YouTube video of a similar length to veg out with, and on rinsing, I was pleasantly pleased.
My face feels much softer and looks a lot brighter. I’m going to slather some moisturiser on, chill with another YouTube video while it sinks in, and then get ready to go out to see Murder on the Orient Express with DH tonight.
If your local Primark still has this in store, I highly recommend you pick on up!
For now, with love,
