Mask of the Month: SWISSE Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask

Welcome to the first instalment of my new Mask series on my blog. For the month of March I will be testing out the ‘Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask’ This mask went viral about a month or two ago in some beauty groups I’m in on Facebook and it sent everyone out buying a tub of this stuff and claiming their skin had never looked better but no one really gave a proper review so I thought if I wan’t to know the answers I might as well do it myself!

I’ve compiled a list of judging criteria. I hope to get a thorough review of each mask. This week shall be the introduction of the mask then the next two weeks will be me trailing it and letting you know my thoughts then the last week will be my full review.

Introducing the: SWISSE Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask with Charcoal and Kaolin Clay!

  • Price: $17.99 at Priceline  $14.99 at Chemist Warehouse
  • Target/Aim: To detoxify and purify skin leaving it feeling smooth and hydrated
  • Skin Type: Combination Skin – Well suited for congested and blemish prone skin
  • Smell: It has a cherry/medicin scent like a faint smell of red starburst
  • Texture: Smooth can feel a little gritty once it starts to dry
  • Colour: Dark grey
  • Directions: “Apply to clean, dry skin. Leave on for 10 minutes, or until the mask feels firm and dry, then rinse off with warm water. Follow with your favourite Swisse natural oil and moisturiser. Recommended for use once to twice per week”.

From what I’ve heard about this mask, it goes on dark grey and then dries to a light grey/white colour. The spots left dark on the skin are the pores and that is supposedly where the mask is doing its work. I don’t have ‘acne prone’ skin, however I do get quite large pores so if this mask can do something to clear them or even minimise them. That’d be great!

Let the great mask mayhem begin! Be sure to check back for my thoughts on using this mask for 1 week.

Priceline 40% off Skincare Sale Haul

The first 40% off sale of the year has just been and gone at Priceline, did you pick anything up?

12626068_10153896604987929_207794129_n

Like most of these sales I have a mental list in my head, walk into the store then forget everything! I walked into Priceline with the intent on buying something, I got four things (3 from the same range) and one other that is probably one of the most talked about items of the moment for me and that is the Swiss Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask With Charcoal & Kaolin Clay. I’m in a few beauty groups on Facebook and about 2 weeks ago this was all any body was posting about. I don’t usually jump on the hype train but I love face masks, especially ones that I can put on, watch an episode or two of something, wait until it hardens and wash it off feeling refreshed and hope my skin doesn’t hate it! I’m yet to try this, but will let you know what I think!

The other items I picked up belong to the Neutrogena Hydro Boost range. I’ve talked about their day and night creams before (read it here) and have been eyeing off the rest of the range ever since. I recently picked up their sheet masks and I’ve fallen in love with them so I decided to pick up the remaining products from the range! I got the Moisturising Foaming Cleanser, Water Gel with SPF 15 UVA/UVB and the Eye Roll-On. I’ve not tried them on my face yet, only tested them on the back of my hand. They have the same satisfying scent as the other products and my hand has never felt so revitalised! If you have dry skin I highly recommend you try some products out from this range! Once I’ve used the products enough to know how they work / if they work I’ll be sure to do a post on the full range so if you’re interested make sure you stay tuned for that!

Swisse Manuka Honey Face Mask: $10.79 / $17.99AUD

Hydro Boost Cleanser: $8.99 / $14.99AUD

Hydro Boost Water Gel SPF 15: $14.99 / $24.99AUD

Hydro Boost Eye Roll-On: $11.99 / $19.99AUD

Original Cost: $77.96  Sale Cost: $46.76  Total Saving: $31.20
