Review: H&M Face Masks (Manuka Honey, Dragonfruit and Raspberry Smoothie)


A few days ago I picked up three face masks from H&M all at the bargain price of 99p, which immediately made me wonder if they actually work at all. Nevertheless, I've always wanted to try them, just in case it turns out they work really well. 


The smell of this one was quite weird as I couldn't really put my finger on what it smelled like but it still smelt pleasant. It says on the packaging that it's crushed raspberry, mango, apricot, peach and pomegranate - so that probably explains why it doesn't really have one distinct smell. Other than that the face mask has a lovely creamy feel to it, and did leave my skin feeling quite smooth. It doesn't have a very dramatic effect though that a really good face mask will give but it definitely made my skin feel a little smoother. 

This was my favourite of the three by a long way. It has a really gorgeous natural scent that I loved which really made me feel pampered, plus it's a nice baby pink colour. When I took the face mask off, the pieces of hazelnut shell really polished my skin without being too harsh. This again left my skin feeling soft but didn't have a great effect on my skin at all. It makes you feel pampered but it doesn't really give the best result. 

This was my least favourite of the three. What I liked about it was that it smelt and felt just like honey - although I wasn't so keen on how sticky it was! If you're like me and have a lot of hair, this one can be a bit of a nightmare as it's very easy to accidentally get it in your hair. When you use the mask it dries up and then you peel it off (as you can see from the slightly gross picture on the left). It was pretty easy to get most of it off, but I didn't like that I was left with a lot of tiny bits of it on my face as it was quite annoying to get off. This again did make my skin feel soft, but like the others it didn't leave my face very smooth at all. 

The verdict? Bargain price, but I wasn't so impressed with how smooth they left my skin. On the plus side, they were really fun to try out. 

Have you ever tried these face masks? Tell me in the comment section below! Have a great day lovelies!
