Now that all the festive parties have been and gone (collective sigh!), it’s time to detox. Thankfully we’ve discovered an amazing quick-fix skin treatment that deeply cleanses and rejuvenates that post-season complexion…
Yep, party season is finally over, which means that cosying up on the sofa with your favourite box set come Saturday night is officially OK. We get it – after a month-long binge on bubbles and Ferrero Rocher, a chilled night in with a soothing cup of mint tea is high on the hit list.
But don’t miss a trick: your complexion is also crying out for a detox right now (you can blame the booze, late nights, central heating, plus fast-rising pollution levels for that) and, thankfully, we’ve found just the thing.
Sanctuary Spa’s Purifying Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask, £5 is hands down one of the best sheet masks we’ve tried for revitalising partied-out pores – especially if, like us, you’re on a budget right now. It contains absorbent charcoal, the ingredient known by beauty insiders to help draw out skin impurities, such as daily dirt, grime and pollution particles, as well as excess oil, making this rather fabulous foaming sheet mask a fast route to a clearer complexion.
How does it work?
This miracle sheet mask comes in two parts: after cleansing, apply both segments to dry skin, then smooth out any creases. Leave it on to do its thing for 10-15 minutes and you’ll soon see and feel its oxygenating micro bubbles working away (sort of like a bespoke Jacuzzi session for your face).
After you’ve removed the sheet mask, massage in the remaining foam with your fingers and rinse your face with warm water. You’ll be left with fresh and replenished skin that glows like you’ve had a professional facial.
There’s even the stats to prove it really works: during independent user trials, 85 per cent of women who had used the Purifying Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask for one week reported that their skin appeared clearer and fresher, with less visible pores afterwards, while 83 per cent of women agreed that their face felt less oily too*.
