#BeautyCrush: Wake up to beautiful skin!

We all know our skin is at its most reception when it’s asleep. Well brands know it too and were quick to introduce products that promise smooth & even skin by the time you open your eyes the next day!

I, too, jumped on that bandwagon and decided to give moisturising overnight masks a test run. I picked 2 of them. The first one, the Origins Drink-Up Intensive Overnight Mask which seems to be the most blogged about and then, The FaceShop Seaweed Moisturizing Pack. Here are my thoughts! Read on:

Origins Drink-Up Intensive Overnight Mask, GBP23

As mentioned, the Origins mask is one of the most famous ones when it comes to overnight moisturising masks. I read tons of review on it and for the most part they were really good ones!  To have tried it over a few months, I can say that I really like it! It makes your skin sooo soft and radiant. It is however super rich and it does leave you with a shiny sticky face. It’s not so much of an issue though but just saying!

TheFaceShop Seaweed Moisturizing Pack

A recent discovery this mask is my favourite of the two. A light gel-like texture that does not leave me shining like a disco ball, it still deeply hydrates my skin and I usually wake up to evened, smoothed out tone! A cheaper alternative too!

Have you tried any overnight masks? Which ones! Tell me all :)

LOVELY Me:ex Pastel Cushion Blusher in 02 Coral Cushion

My absolute favourite one has got to be that super cute little blusher! From the girlie packaging to the beautiful ‘coraly’ colour which works even so well on my skin tone! The fluffy little puff applicator is a dream too :)

Lovely Me:ex My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua tint

Never been much of a lip tint fan, just because I never really know how to apply it, how to wear it… I do also suffer from dry lips and forever applying moisturising lip balm. However, I did try this one out and totally loved it! It gave my lips that deep sultry red colour and when I apply my (transparent) lip balm over it, the colour doesn’t bulge. Check.

Lovely Me:ex Catch My Eye Line in 01 Black 

My least favourite only just because I am not the greatest at applying eye liner BUT a very good product never the less! This is a really lovely eye pen, easy to apply and the little smudger at the end makes it a super versatile product. I just really need to learn how to use it properly ;)!
