Hey my lovelies!
Today I have a fab review on a face mask that I trialed last week
First of all I would like to say thank you to Angela at Beauty Masks Ltd for asking me to review one of their Fusion Series masks from their Timeless Truth-Facial Sheet Mask brand. This post came about through the BHTwitterparty that happened a few weeks ago, where a lot of bloggers chatted on Twitter and had the chance to see if any companys would like to collaborate with them to do reviews. These Timeless Truth Masks really stood out to me due to the fact there were a lot of masks to suit skin type, and what the user wanted to get out of the treatment.
I decided to review the Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask RRP £4.95. I think this is a good price if you wanted to do a fortnightly or monthly treatment, but I don’t know if I would pay this weekly or even 3/4 times a week as is suggested.
The main reason for choosing this mask is that it is described as having:
“A deep cleansing effect. It instantly brightens, smoothes, firms and hydrates the skin”
My T-Zone gets oily and I enjoy using a charcoal mask normally so I felt this was the best one to suit my skin and needs. In the winter like many of us my skin gets so dull and just not good so the brightening aspect really apealled to me, all in all I felt this mask had loads of great benefits for my skin type.
There are many masks on offer including:
FUSION MASKS £4.95
These are fabric face shaped masks, that are impregnated with the dehydrated product then packed in serum for freshness. This system uses freeze dried product within the cloth which shows on the cloth mask as coloured checks on one side of the mask.
1) Herbal Rejuvination Immortelle Mask (yellow)- Helps reduce fine lines and signs of ageing. Skin is nourished and moisturised.
2) Deep Sea Water extract Moisurising Mask (Marine Blue/Green) – Creates a moisturising effect and the algae extract helps protects skin from free radical damage.
3) Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask ( Black) – the bamboo charcoal extract has a deep cleansing effect.
4) Multipeptide Calming Revitalising Mask (Pink)- this mask contains negative ions which increase circulation to relax muscles which in turn help to reduce fine lines.
5) Green Tea Phenol Soothing Mask (Green)- this treatment helps prevent premature signs of ageing. The mask helps to fortify the skin from oxidisation while regulating oily secretions.
These are made from state of the art fibres which include silk, elastic cotton and bio-cellulose.

2) Orchid extract replenishing Mask- replenishing and hydrating mask.
3) Miracle Rejuvenation Mask- brightening mask to even skin tone and diminish of appearance of age spots and wrinkles.
ORGANIC SILK FIBRE ELIXIR MASK £8.85
This mask uses organic bear berry and algae to stimulate cell production to improve the quality of the skins collagens and elastins fibre.
The mask itself is in a foil sealed packet which needs to be tore to open to keep it fresh. I thought this was a wonderful idea as it means it will have a longer shelf life,but I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it the minute the post man dropped it in!
It instructs you to cleanse your skin first so I used my old faithful Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish to make sure my face was lovely and clean before the goodness began. I opened the package and removed the mask, you have to take off the plastic film and place the mask on your face darker side down.
When placing the mask on your face you need to smooth it over the contours and make sure it has good contact with the face. If I am honest I found this quite difficult as when I was trying to fit it around my nose the chin bit would come away, and the nose bit was very difficult. I got it on the best I could and settled down to watch the second half of Eastenders. The mask states to leave it on for 15 to 20 mins then remove and massage the excess serum into the skin, there is also serum left in the packet so make sure and utilise this also!
I removed it and initially I didn’t see any difference, it just felt as though I had a huge amount of a heavy serum on my face. I massaged the excess serum on my face and then I did see a little difference in the brightness of my skin. I decided to put the package into the fridge and use the serum from the packet on my face the next morning.
I cleansed etc and instead of my normal daily serum I used the excess mask serum then followed with my daily moisturiser.
I wasn’t going out that day so I didn’t put on any makeup and I kept an eye on my skin throughout the day. To be honest I didn’t see a huge difference the next day, but definitely that night there was the slightest difference.
I loved the whole process of this mask, from the packet to the serum the next day, but I don’t feel it would be something I would incorporate regularly into my regime due to price, issue with keeping mask on face and lack of results.
It was nice for a little bit of me time, and I would consider trying other masks from the range in the future. The Miracle Rejuvenation Mask might be one I would give a go due to its help with evening skin tone.
Overall I would say give this mask a go or one of the others more suited for your issues or skin type, it’s a little bit of luxury for a bit of me time.
Thanks again to Angela for choosing me to trial this
