New In Skincare - Face Masks

After having a big love affair with makeup for the past couple months I've finally found some new skincare bits to try which I'm super excited about. Korean Beauty has taken over the western market since 2015 inspiring products like cushion foundations and sheet masks. The products I'm showing you today are a mixture of sheet masks and traditional cream/gels. Some of them are new launches and some are just new to me. I hope you enjoy and if you'd like to see full reviews on them, let me know!

Nugg Face Mask - Deep Cleansing/Soothing
Firstly, can we address how cute these masks are? I mean, I've never seen anything more cute in skincare! I've heard so much about Nugg and I knew I had to give them a go especially since they're only £3.50 each. In terms of packaging, they're the ultimate travel mask. You can literally fit them in your pocket if you're that short of space. 
The first one I picked up is the Cucumber Extract & Jojoba Oil mask which is designed to deep clean the skin leaving it shine free and clear. It's also packed with moisturising ingredients which help keep the mask gentle and non stripping. I can tell my t-zone is going to love this one.
The second one I bought is the Shea Butter & Chamomile Extract mask which helps to calm, balance and hydrate troubled or stressed skin. This one will probably be richer in texture. Acne prone skin may not agree with the shea butter. I'm hoping this will be a nice treat for my skin when it's feeling beat up after wearing makeup or when I feel run down. 

 Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask
This sheet mask looks so interesting. I love the packaging, it immediately makes me think of hydration and moisture. The packet contains one mask for £1.49, but they're currently on offer in Boots for 99p. Steal! It claims to intensely rehydrate, reduce the look of fine lines and revive radiance. It's primarily targeted for dehydrated skin but of course anyone can use it. It's packed with pomegranate extract and hyaluronic acid. The packet says to leave the mask on for 15 minutes, peel it off and then pat in the excess serum. It sounds promising and I will let you know how I get on with it.

MaskerAide Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask - Detox Diva and Pre Party Prep
As you can tell, I'm having a sheet mask moment. I'd never heard of this brand before but these masks look really fun and would be perfect for a girly night in. 
The first one I was drawn to was the Detox Diva mask which claims to minimise the appearance of pores, absorb impurities and protect against free radicals. It contains Geranium Oil, Seaweed and Green Tea Leaf which are beautiful ingredients. Strawberry and Lemon Fruit Extracts help to gently exfoliate and brighten the skin while Honey and Argan Oil moisturise. It basically sounds like my dream mask. If it doesn't work, I'll be very disappointed. 
The Pre Party Prep mask has similar brightening properties but it's also jammed with fruit oils to give a perfectly moisturised yet cleansed canvas for makeup. These masks are £5 each which is slightly more than the Garnier but still very affordable. 

All of these masks sound amazing and I cannot wait to get them on my face. Have you tried any of them before? Do they live up to the hype?

Thank you for reading!
