Mess-free face masks

I don’t know about you but I’m not a big fan of messy face masks. Anything that is a pain to remove or messes up my sink is a real no no these days! With this in mind, I decided to put together a post featuring three mess-free face masks so if there is anyone out there like me (I hope there is) you can try these too.

First up we’ve got The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink in Moisture mask. The wobbly texture is a little odd but it’s lovely and cooling on the skin. I love how hydrating this face mask is and the fact it remains clear on the skin. Once you’ve let it sink into the skin, you simple tissue off the excess. No mess!

Next up is the Skin Purifying Masque* from Ark Skincare’s Age Prepare range. This face mask clears up the skin and leaves it feeling silky smooth.  It's ideal for getting rid of excess oil and I find that it really calms my skin and reduces the appearances of blemishes. You simply apply a thin layer to your face, leave it on for about ten minutes (it goes a translucent white colour) and then rinse it off with water. Simples!

Last but not least we’ve got the newest addition to my face mask collection – the Manuka Doctor Rejuvenating Face Mask*. This is an anti-ageing face mask that is designed to nourish and renew the skin. It dries a translucent white colour and is super easy to remove, so there’s no mess in the sink. 

Since I started putting together this blog post, I’ve been looking into Manuka Doctor a bit more and now I’m not so sure this is the face mask for me. Apparently it contains bee venom (supposedly great for combatting signs of ageing), which sounds super scary but that isn’t what bothers me. It’s the process they go through to get the venom that bothers me.

After watching this video and reading a few posts about harvesting bee venom it seems like whilst the bees don’t die (they get to fly away afterwards) the process could be deemed a little stressful for them. Manuka Doctor say they harvest the venom ethically and that no bees are harmed in the process but I’m still not sure I agree with it. I was going to re-do the photos and just take it out but then I thought I might as well tell you what I think about it and leave you to make up your own minds! 

You can currently get 40% off The Body Shop orders and 15% off at Look Fantastic (which stocks the Ark Skin Purifying Masque!)
