If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know that i’ve been loving Amaranthine beauty products this year, including their face masks that have blown me away with their incredible results after first use.
As face masks are an integral part of our skincare routine’s it was no surprise that they featured in my Natural Skincare Christmas Gift Guide this year, especially as the single-use sizes make for great stocking fillers and token gifts, as well as a great way to try the range without committing to a full-size purchase.
I had tried their Radiance and Nourishing masks previously and loved the performance of the two, so was very excited to try two more of their gorgeous masks, as well as re-visit one of my favourites. I love how the brand offer a variety of sizes and purchase options as you can try the range with confidence without wasting money on a product that might not be right for you. They also make fantastic travel companions too as there’s no fear of spillage or breakage – so you’ll always be prepared for any skincare emergency no matter what climate or situation you’re in…Amaranthine have you covered.
Radiance Face Mask
I tried the Radiance Face Mask earlier this year and have to say that it was incredibly beneficial on my dry and somewhat lack-lustre complexion that needed a brightening boost in my quest for a more radiant complexion.
You can see my first impressions of the mask here, but if you’re looking for a face mask that softens and smooths the skin, while leaving your complexion dewy and glowing, then Amaranthine’s Radiance Face Mask might just be the one for you.
Soothing Face Mask
This time of year is when my skin is most likely to be irritated thanks to the harsher weather conditions and central heating that really stresses my skin out. Thankfully, with skin-calming ingredients including colloidal oatmeal, organic aloe vera, bentonite clay, rice starch, vitamin B3 and lavender essential oil, the calming mask was a beautiful treat for my skin, instantly soothing and calming irritation and reducing redness.
The finely milled powder mixed to a paste beautifully and held well on the skin. I usually dampen my clay masks down so they don’t dry out too much but on this occasion I left it to air dry naturally and even though the clay mask dried out over 10 minutes, it rinsed off the skin with ease leaving behind no feeling of dryness or tightening. I have to say that out of all the Amaranthine masks i’ve tried, this is actually my favourite as I feel that this could easily become my go-to mask whenever my skin was feeling out of sorts and would quickly and effectively get my skin feeling back to normal after just one application. This is certainly one for my wish list as I would love to use it on a long term basis to reap the benefits of this stunning soothing mask. So if you’re looking to calm any skin conditions (particularly helpful on rosacea), then I would highly recommend you give Amaranthine’s Soothing Mask a try as it might just be the skin saviour you’ve been looking for.
Detox Face Mask
As someone with a dry skin type, detoxifying masks are always a little problematic as they are sometimes slightly too drying on my skin. However, even though Amaranthine’s Detox Face Mask is more suited to oilier skin types, it didn’t leave my skin flakey or tight like other detoxing masks do and actually helped some of my own skincare concerns.
The lovely soft, powdered mask combines French green clay, bentonite clay, organic aloe vera, matcha green tea, cornstarch, chamomile and palmarosa essential oil to deeply cleanse the pores by drawing out impurities, preventing breakouts and softening the skin, as well as soothing irritation and acne. The addition of palmarosa essential oils also aids with moisture levels and helps to balance the skin and leave the complexion somewhat glowing. What I love most about these 6.5g sachets is that they are great for multi-masking, as I just applied the detox mask to my nose and chin, as these are the areas I find my skin gets slightly more congested. The mask had a lovely fresh, almost medicinal, aroma which was pleasant and made the mask a joy to use. My skin felt lovely and soft after use and even though I personally didn’t experience a glow around my skin, possibly due to my drier skin type, I have noticed a difference in the appearance of my pores after just two applications. After utilising a lot of Amaranthine’s masks in my routine I can certainly see how the Detox Face Mask would benefit oilier skin types as the French green clay and matcha green tea are true hero products for oilier skin types thanks to their ability to draw out impurities, reduce pore sizes and have an all-round balancing effect upon the skin.
Amaranthine have certainly impressed me yet again with their beautiful skincare that delivers great results – even after just one use! I love a brand that offers different sizes to trial the products before buying full-size as it demonstrates the confidence they have in their products and passion they have for their customers to discover the perfect products for their own skin concerns. I have loved each product i’ve tried from their beautiful range of skincare delights from the silky smooth cleansing balm to the wide array of clay masks – and i’m sure as we go into a New Year that my love for the brand will continue to blossom.
