    Face Mask Friday: Which L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Is For You?

    L'Oreal Pure Clay Masks | Essential Twenty

    Last year, the beauty world was hit by the L’Oreal Pure Clay Masks. I feel like this was the first time multi-masking really hit the mass market and it took me ages to get hold of the original three masks. They were sold out everywhere! L’Oreal have now released another two masks to add to the range which haven’t had as much hype as the original three, but I still want to talk about them. Which masks are for your specific skin type? Which masks will do what you want from a face mask? I’m about to break it all down for you and essentially give you the hard sell as I really rate these face masks.

    Another Summer Haul from The Body Shop

    Another The Body Shop Haul | Essential Twenty

    It’s been less than a month since I last shared a haul from The Body Shop, but as I mentioned last time, I’m pretty obsessed with their products at the moment. When they were offering 30% off, a few free gifts when you spent over £25, and I had two £5 reward vouchers to use, I was game to treat myself to some new products (and some repeat favourites).

    Dermalogica Precleanse

    Dermalogica Precleanse | Essential Twenty

    I’ve mentioned on a number of occasions that I’m definitely a balm and oil cleanser girl over cream cleansers, and over the past few months I’ve found a firm favourite. On evenings that I’ve forgotten to take my makeup off with micellar water before getting to the bathroom, I’ve been using the Dermalogica Precleanse*, an oil cleanser perfect to removing the majority of makeup before a deeper cleanse.

    Skincare Q&A

    Skincare Q&A | Essential Twenty

    I’ve been having a real skincare moment recently, and after spotting Corrie Arnold posting a Skincare Q&A a few months ago, I had to get on board. It’s essentially a tag which I’ve not done in so long, so it’s a fun little filler post whilst I’m trying to do some research for an upcoming post. Without further ado, let’s learn more about me and my skin.

    Face Mask Friday: Mad Beauty Animasks

    Mad Beauty Animasks | Essential Twenty

    It’s Friday, which means it’s Face Mask Friday. This week is only my second ever sheet mask review, and it’s all about the Mad Beauty Animasks Face Mask*. Whilst I often reach for masks because they sound like they’re going to nourish my skin, this mask is just a bit of fun. All will become clear with the photos.

    Testing Clinique Pep-Start Products

    Clinique Pep-Ify Me | Essential Twenty

    Clinique is one of my favourites brands for skincare. I think I’ve loved pretty much every product I’ve tried from them in the past, and I’m still up for trying a load more. This year, Boots released the Clinique Pep-ify Me Set, containing a moisturiser, makeup remover and a cleanser from the Pep-Start collection for just £10 so I knew I had to pick it up.
