Myself and face masks have never quite agreed.  It was probably because I can't sit still for 10-15 minutes without moving my face and avoid scaring the cat!  But, I have found a game changer!  The Sanctuary 5 minute thermal detox mask (quite a mouthful!) has become a bit of a skin hero over the past month or so.

I love applying this mask to a damp face once or twice a week after cleansing and then washing it off in the shower, minimal effort?  Yes please!
As this mask is designed for oily skin it's right up my street.  The warming properties open up your pores, allowing the charcoal and kaolin clay ingredients help to de-congest skin and draw out impurities.  This mask also contains myrrh which calms and soothes skin, leaving your complexion silky soft and deeply cleansed.

I have noticed that after use, my skin looks brighter, less congested and redness is reduced.  Unfortunately there don't seem to be many longer term benefits but for a quick skin fix, this mask is a must!

An outfit post?  Yes!  Today I decided to grab my tripod and actually go outside to take some sixth form outfit photos.  I am in love with my jumper and scarf, I think they are so autumnal and have had so many compliments (especially on the jumper).
Was there some awkward photo posing?  Yes.  Did I feel like my neighbours were spying on me the whole time?  Yes.  Did my cat almost knock the tripod over?  Yes.  Was it worth it?  Not sure.

Please give a big round of applause to my new found brow hero; brow this way!

For months now I have been searching for a new brow gel/crayon/pencil as mine just wasnt doing the job quite right, and I think I have found it in Rimmel's latest brow release!
Although it seems like a take on Benefit's 'gimme brow', a product I have been debating whether to pick up for months now.  It is similar in the fact that it is a tiny tinted brow gel which adds both colour and keeps everything in place, the shade range is also very similar, it offers a light, medium and dark brown (I have dark brown).  Although I have not tried 'gimme brow', the main difference I have noticed is the wand.  The Rimmel wand is larger and picks up a little too much product which makes application a little difficult and it takes longer.  However, the formula of the product itself is lovely!  It gives my brows a natural thickness in just the right colour and keeps them in place all day, its not as pigmented or precise as I would like for an evening look but for an everyday makeup look, this works perfectly.

But, lets not forget the unbelievable price of this!  At £3.99 its not going to make much of a dent in your bank balance, so why not?

What is your brow hero?
