Anatomicals Face Masks| Valentine’s series

Valentine’s day is almost here and this year, Anatomicals challenged me to review 4 of their face masks along with my boyfriend.


Andre is not a big fan of face masks. Basically anything on his face makes him feel uncomfortable, but he loves the end result, so I knew this was definitely something we needed to try.


So here are our reviews along with a few crazy photos from the experiment:

Face Mask: I feel the need, the need for seaweed. calming algae face mask

What we have to say about it: Definitely our favour in terms of colour. Andre loved the smell and said it made him feel very relaxed. But what left us speechless was how refreshed and smooth our skin felt after we removed it.




Face Mask: Makes your skin brighter. (if not you) strawberry + yarrow face mask

What we have to say about it: It’s stinging time! This wasn’t one of Andre’s favourite until he took it off and felt his skin very moisturised. I simply loved the smell of strawberries in my skin.



Face Mask: “Anatomicals Farewell The Scarlet Pimperhell Face Mask’ 

What we have to say about it: I had tried this mask before so I couldn’t wait to see Andre’s reaction to it. Our faces ended up really clean and this mask was great to absorb excess oil. Loved it!


Face Mask: ‘Look, You’ve Got Chocolate All Over Your Face, Anti Stress Mask’

What we have to say about it: We both had a nice glow after this mask. The properties of dead sea salt combined with the moisturising benefits of cocoa butter and shea butter really makes a difference to your skin. Andre said the smell was just like entering M&Ms store in London.


Now it’s time you give them a try too!

Now available on Boots and Boots Online!

Anatomicals| We Only Want You For Your Body

First post of the year!

Everyone is back at work and Christmas stress is history, but we’re still recovering, our skin is still recovering… and that’s why I had the opportunity to test a few products from Anatomicals, the brand that only wants you for your body. 

Besides their packaging designs with cheeky messages, they have an entire range of products that make you feel great and are not animal tested!

In a month I’ve tried 3 different face masks:


Farewell the scarlet pimplehell – a deep cleansing mud mask for your face. Great to clear the pores and helps with acne scars. A bit itchy after 5 minutes of applying it, but then I got used to it and left my skin extremely soft, even the following day.


No breakouts, it’s Alcatraz for spots – a purifying charcoal mask. This was my favourite, even thought it was itchy the moment I started applying it. I’ve used it on the 1st of January, after wearing make up for an entire night (NYE) and it did miracles with my skin.

That’s what we call stung – a skin boosting honey mask. You know how they say honey helps with everything? It really does. I’ve tried this one with my mom and sister. We all have different types of skin, but we all felt the benefits. It leaves a slight yellow colour in the skin, but you can remove it with micellar water or any makeup remover.


I’ve also tried the Smother Superior Nun Better Body Butter, an amazing bergamot and green ginger body butter that makes you feel like you’re floating up in the clouds after every shower. It left my skin very soft and smooth.

I was also the lucky winner of Anatomicals Christmas Giveaway and I got the Let the Gels Ring Out for Christmas. A set of shower gel-filled festive baubles! Inside their casings I found a zesty orange and clove shower gel – a spicy and citrus blend that I’m still using for my showers.IMG_7893

 I must say I have a crush on these products since day one and even Olivia was curious about them as you can see in the picture. Now it’s time you give them a try too!

Cosmetic Warrior|Lush Product Review

This is the second face mask I tried from Lush and I’ve used it throughout the entire month of July.

I’ve been trying to reduce the oily skin on my face and I was recommended this mask as a gentle and balancing fresh face mask with antibacterial tea tree and fresh garlic working together to cleanse.

Fresh green grapes clean and cool the skin, whilst free range eggs tighten its texture and antimicrobial honey leaves it soft and moisturised.



You just need to smooth a generous layer of this mask onto clean skin and leave for 10 to 15 minutes. I use cold water (you can also use lukewarm water, but avoid hot water) to remove the mask while massaging my face. You can feel a softer skin straight away and it lasts till the following day. I was able to see a difference on my skin, not as oily as before, but the garlic smell is quite strong and needs a lot of time to get used to.


The ingredients:

Garlic is antiseptic, and its deep-cleansing action helps to reduce spots and clear the complexion, leaving it feeling soft, fresh and comfortable. Garlic is also a source of selenium, which increases antioxidant activity in the body.


Fresh green grapes help to degrease the skin and give a thorough cleanse without stripping moisture from the skin.  They also help apply absorbant powders onto the skin to keep them absorbing excess oil and sweat throughout the day.


Honey is a natural humectant meaning it attracts and retains moisture. In addition to being very moisturising, the antibacterial action helps to thoroughly clean the skin in shower, hair and skin care.


Tea tree oil has been scientifically proven to be antibacterial, antifungal and particularly effective against the types of fungi we call yeasts.


I’ve been reviewing a different mask every month, so make sure you’re following me on social media so you don’t miss any of the posts!


If you’ve tried this mask, please share your experience on the comments’ section. If you have any facial mask to recommend please feel free to share it too.
