I'd like to buy a face mask.
The sort where you sit in the bath for 15 minutes and relax!
I've got greasy ish skin.

I've tried liz Earle and have a sample of elemis, just something nice.
Or something that works! What. Are your favourites or does no nobody use face masks any longer!

Must admit I just tend to use either BFB or a thick layer of moisturiser instead.

Ren detox is great

I really rate Simple face masks. Cheap and effective. Also Soap & Glory used to do a mask called No Clogs Allowed which was one of those self-heating masks. Prefer Simple for laying in the bath relaxing moments though.

Sanctuary used to do a black clay self heating one, which was good.
Origins do lovely ones but they are the Company of Satan, so I don't use them anymore.

I use bentonite clay to make my own with just clay or water.

It gets really tight and draws stuff out. I got the clay in powder form off eBay.

Company of Satan?

I like ren, their rose stuff are lovely.

I had some samples of Sisley, but can't afford £60 for a mask, do Clarins do lovely masks?

I'll have a look at simple though.

I like Lush Cupcake.

Neals Yard palmarosa for oily skin or white tea for sensitive are my two favourites. I've just bought a Ren clay mask for blemished skin but not tried it yet.

I like the old proper clay mud mask ones, so either 'Mudd' one, or Superdrug do a couple of different proper clay ones I love, one with aloe vera so a bit gentler, but clay really sucks out all the nasties.

Depends what you want the mask to do - clay really draws out impurities as is great for blocked pores. If you have dry skin, try an oil based one to soften and moisturise the skin. Either will use time and steam.
