Nothing screams “pamper” quite like a face mask does. With so many different finishes and formulas filling our Insta feeds, it’s almost too hard to choose. For so long I figured that the more expensive the better, until I discovered Holler and Glow.
You may recognise the colourful selection of masks as they’re stocked in Primark, somewhere I’m ever so familiar with. Tackling mostly every beauty concern, the masks range from hydrating to rejuvenating, and not just for your face. Holler and Glow have spoiled us for choice on pamper evenings, creating masks for our hair, hands and feet too! *puts them on all on at once* The masks range from £3-4 each, meaning less damage to the purse and pamper sessions more often!
For the past few weeks I’ve been testing out a bundle of different masks and formulas, from hair masks to the insta-famous bubble mask which the Holler and Glow team kindly sent over. Here’s my thought on these pockets of wonder.
You’re Pawsome Sheet Mask – £3
To go with the adorable Puppy print on this sheet mask, comes the promise of an instant energising boost. It’s like a smoothie packed with goodness for the skin, containing avocado extract, mango, cucumber extract and so many other natural ingredients. Ensuring my skin was clean beforehand, I placed on the funky looking mask and one friends episode later, my skin was feeling fresh, and boosted with life, yet a little bit slimey. However, instead of washing your face immediately after removing a sheet mask, it’s always important to spend time patting in all the excess product to ensure your skin soaks up all of the remaining goodness.
Stone Coal Sober Bubble Mask – £3
This mask I was particularly excited to test after seeing the bubble mask craze all over social media, there’s something about a mask bubbling up to a cloud that’s just so appealing. Containing charcoal, tomato and apple extract, it promises to purify and wash away your skin’s sins. (if you’ve every slept with makeup on then this one is for you) Over 15 minutes, I watched this mask foam up, forming a little white cloud on my face, taking many selfies as it did. I wouldn’t go as far as to say this mask purified my skin, however for the excitement of the bubbling effect and how soft my skin felt afterwards, I’ll still be picking it up when I’m next in Primark.

Rainbow Chaser Iridescent Peel Off Mask – £3
I’d previously tried a handful of peel off masks from Holler and Glow so couldn’t wait to test out the Rainbow Chaser iridescent pink mask. It has the finish of a strawberry gloss Krispy Kreme doughnut and contains vitamin B3 and E, exactly what my skin loves! My favourite way to use this mask was to apply a layer under my eyes whilst doing my ye makeup, this way, the mask caught any fall out product and left me with a smooth base underneath for the following base makeup. I’d recommend leaving this mask on for around 25 minutes to ensure you get that satisfying peel at the end.
Fried Out Replenishing Hair Sheet Mask – £4
I’d always refrained from trying out any hair masks before testing out these, questioning how couldn’t they could really be. But believe me when I say I was incredibly wrong! I was sceptical at first as I sat looking crazy with my hair wrapped up in a mask with lots of tiny fries wrapped around it, however the results were wonderful thanks to the enriched coconut oil. It was a lengthy process to sit through as the mask did it’s magic, but after 20 minutes it unveiled luscious locks, giving that ‘after the hairdressers’ feel after I’d washed the remaining product out of my hair. If you’re treating yourself to an at home pamper session then be sure to include one of these and you’ll be swishing your hair around for days.
I’d love to know if you’ll be picking up any Holler and Glow masks when you’re next in Primark or if you’ve tried any before?
