Mini Face Mask Reviews Part 2

I hope you enjoyed reading my first face mask reviews, I shall dive right in with part 2!

Sanctuary Spa – Reverse Beauty Sleep Mask

I received this product in the limited edition beauty box and I’m so glad I did. I tried it the first night I received it and it was the first over night mask I had ever tried so was super curious to see what it would be like. I applied this after doing my usual night time routine and it literally sank into my skin so nicely which I was surprised about because it’s really thick and gloopey. As it’s clear there was no need to worry about getting it all over the bed sheets or anything and when it came to morning I just cleansed my face as usual. I have been using this a couple of times a week and I have notice my makeup doesn’t get stuck as much around my dryer patches so I’m impressed with this.


Sanctuary Spa – 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask 

This is probably my favourite mask out of the lot. It’s a bit messier than I would like but I can deal with that. The feeling I have when I put this on is so relaxed and lovely and afterwards my skin is like a dream. Not only does it feel nice and clean it feels as if I have had a treatment. I have done a whole post of my thoughts on this here .

Soap & Glory – No Clogs Allowed 

When I first got this I loved it. I used it during my pamper evenings every Sunday for three weeks without even looking at any of my other ones. Then what I call ‘the incident’ happened. It was so traumatic I haven’t used it since as I have been so put off which is annoying because I really used to like it. Basically ‘the incident’ happened after I had this mask on one evening and I took it off after the time it says and one really bright patch would not budge. I tried everything – washing with water, using a wet cloth, scrub, putting other face wash on it and washing it and it just didn’t move, it was horrific and didn’t even come off for 3 days. I don’t even know what happened but I don’t want to use it again now!

KIKO Hydrating Mask 

I picked this up a little while ago when I did a little KIKO haul as I was really interested in their skincare. We all know why I picked this one so I won’t go into it! I have only used this a couple of times so don’t have a strong love or hate for it but I generally like it. The smell is so fresh and quite floral but not too over powering which I really like. Texture-wise, it’s almost like a thick cream so I wouldn’t apply this too heavily but with this a little goes a long way and you do wipe it off after sort of 15 minutes so it’s not the end of the world. As with all the KIKO products I’ve tried so far I really like it and it was really cheap as well for such good quality and left my skin feeling ultra smooth and hydrated.

There we have it, my mini mask reviews. Let me know if there’s any I should try!

Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask

I have been mixing and matching my evening routine recently as I want to try more mask type products which is what originally led me to finding the Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask which I bought for £10.00 from

The packaging for me isn’t the best for two reasons. Firstly, the product if quite thick and gloopy and you have to really wipe the mask away or it gets all round the edges and in the lid if you close it and I am a bit OCD about keeping things like this clean as I hate it when they get all crusty and disgusting! The second reason is I like to get the most for my money and I feel like as this is already quite a thick consistency it will be really hard to squeeze out the last bit it will be even more difficult because of the type of tube it’s in but that’s just my personal opinion.


I have used this a few times now and I have to say I am pleased with this purchase. I have only used it four or five times so around once a week, however, it recommends using it 2-3 times a week but I don’t feel it necessary to use a detox mask as often as that.

It claims to be ‘Intensely purifying yet non-drying deep cleanse mask’ and I feel like this is one of those things that actually does what it says on the tin. As I’m prone to dry patches on my face I really don’t need any more dryness so this works really well for me.


As explained above, the texture is thick and gooey. It says to apply a thin layer so you have to kind of work the mask on your skin by going over it a few times to spread it across your skin. I only use one or two fingers and spread it in one direction as I think it would be a very bad idea to start rubbing it around in circles or something!


One last thing I definitely should mention is that this is the kind of thing you need to tie your hair back as if you get this in your hair it’s so horrible sticky once it gets in your hair!!
