Face Mask Saturday?! Soap & Glory's Scrub Your Nose In It

Hi everyone! I realise this blog should have went up yesterday and I'm really sorry it didn't I've been feeling really exhausted and run down lately and it all came to a head yesterday. When I woke up my throat was really sore, I had a runny nose (sorry if that is too much information haha) and I felt like crap. So by the time I got home from work I was exhausted I just wanted to go to bed and go to sleep so that's what I did. I am feeling a bit better today, the sore throat is still here but I don't feel as tired so that's a bonus. I feel like I had to explain myself as when I say I'm going to do something I have to follow through and if I don't I feel incredibly guilty! Does anyone else feel like that or just me haha?

So anyways I have had this product for so long but I had to talk about it. So it has been repackaged so it doesn't look like mine but I've read the product description and it sounds round about the same so I'm guessing it does the same job. So technically this isn't a face mask, this is a face scrub but you can leave it on for longer for it to work like a face mask and this is always how I use it. I've never used it as a scrub before! 
So this week my skin hasn't been too bad, I feel like my skin is on rotation one week it's okay and the next its terrible haha! But no major problems this week thank the lord!

I don't remember how long exactly I've had this product but it doesn't smell weird or look weird and still works so it is definitely not out if date. It's a greenish blue colour and because it is primarily a scrub this feels very grainy when you rub it on your skin. However, this means when you wash it off your face it exfoliates it too which means your getting the best of both worlds. This is meant to be oil absorbing and brightening when used as a mask and you only have to leave it on for 3 minutes! This has the same tightening effect that a traditional clay mask has and it smells very minty and it feels almost like a burning sensation when you put it on, not like painful I dunno how to describe it haha.

I have to say I absolutely love this mask I've been using it every other week for like a year and a half and it's always the mask that I return too. It makes my pores look so clean and totally unclogs them. It also makes my skin feel so soft and because I am oily it totally reduces any oil on my face. It also totally reduces any spots that might be brewing and reduces any that I already have.  I cannot praise this mask enough I think if you were going to try any of the masks I have suggested this would be a great one to start with. This is what the new packaging looks like.

If any of you have tried it please let me know what you thought of it in the comments below, did you love it too? Next week is my last face mask blog so of there is any you really want me to try let me know! 
Also, one of my most favourite times of year is coming up... Halloween!!!! I am so excited words cannot describe my excitement. I wondered into Lush yesterday and they had their Halloween range out and I just wanted to buy it all. So last year I finally done a proper, scary Halloween make up and dress up look which I loved. I love dressing up in fancy dress, I wish Halloween was all month long as I have so many ideas and only one day. So tomorrow I'm going to post last years Halloween look and do a step by step guide on how I created that look so I hope you enjoy reading that tomorrow and it definitely WILL be up unless something major happens! 
Much love,
Lucy x
