LEARN TO LOVE THE SKIN YOU'RE IN | 7TH HEAVEN

Heres the thing, I'm 20 years old and I've only really just started looking after my skin... no judgment ok! My skin has always been an issue, its the one thing about myself that I can't stand to look at. It's certainly gone through a lot and under all that foundation, powder and a hell of a lot of concealers is a face full of imperfections. Through the years I've been told by doctors to not use face washes, cleansers, toners, serums and whatever else because my skin was far too sensitive. I had cystic acne all throughout my schooling and no matter what I used, my skin would flare up and I would be left feeling so insecure about my appearance that I didn't even want to leave the house. After many rounds of creams, lotions and a few medication changes, my skin has finally calmed itself down and I'm in a much happier place with my skin.

Depressing part over, I'm slowly but surely building up my skincare collection and I'm becoming obsessed with looking after my skin, good thing too as if I had left it any longer I'm sure I would've ended up looking like my dad (who is very wrinkly and always has been bless him). When it comes to testing out skin care I need to let my skin get used to the product first before I can make any kind of assumption on it, my skin isn't really what I would call normal, it's oily and dry at the same time but I'm also prone to a large spot or two so I have to be 100% sure of what I'm using on my skin.




I've known about 7th Heaven for donkey's years but in all honesty, I just saw mud masks or any type of skincare as something the 'older' generation would use and I didn't really need that, how this was only a few months ago has me completely baffled. I was introduced to the brand at the Blogosphere Christmas Market and I got to try a few of their masks there and then, but like I said, I like to test out my skincare for a few weeks before I can come to any kind of assumption about the product so even though the little sachets of their masks are amazing for on the go and are cheap and cheerful, I wanted something long-term that I could use more than once. I'm just lazy that way...

7th Heaven got into contact with me around two months ago and they wanted to know if I would be interested in trying their international best-selling Dead Sea Mud Mask which is actually celebrating its 20th birthday, cute right? When the parcel came I was legit like... erm excuse me bbz I did not order this because the box was bloody huge. They had sent me so many masks, a cute little beach bag and even a tonne of masks all chilling there ready for a giveaway! Which reminds me, keep reading this post to find out more about the giveaway and the instructions on how to enter! 


I've only ever seen their masks in those cute little sachets that you can pick up at the counter of Claires Accessories or your local Boots, but they sent me a giant tube of the Dead Sea Mud Mask... I've never seen their products packaged this way and not gonna lie, I was legit over the moon. I know I'm a bit too excited about a mud mask in a tube but this just means that I can use it more than once and I can actually see the benefits the mask is having on my skin. Their masks are cruelty-free and the majority of their masks are vegan which is brilliant for my cruelty-free babes out there, you can also get 15 uses out of the tube and for the price of £6.00 that's such a bargain because their sachets only cost a £1. So if my maths is right you're paying for 6 uses of the product and getting 9 uses free? I know that's a weird way to look at it but I like a good bargain.

I don't really know the ins and outs of the ingredients that are actually in the mask and if I tried to explain it to you, I think I would not only make you all confused but I would also confuse myself. Here's some info from 7th Heavens very own blog post about their dead sea mud mask.... 


'Ideal for combination and oily skin types, the Kaolin clay helps to absorb excess oils and impurities but in fact remains as one of the more gentle clays. Dead Sea Salt contains a variety of naturally sourced minerals to keep you healthy and your skin super radiant. From Calcium to prevent water retention, Magnesium to calm the nervous system, Potassium to balance skin’s moisture levels and Sodium to help skin cells expel impurities and retain nutrients.'



...Well doesn't that sound lovely? Honestly, though, the mask made my face feel so soft and even though it's supposed to absorb all of the oils, it didn't leave my skin feeling dry or blotchy which is actually quite a common thing for me and a few mud masks. My skin felt tight (in a good way) and my pores were minimised, the results of this mask made me feel over the moon with how my skin looked. If you have an old (but clean) foundation brush handy then I would definitely recommend applying the mask with that, it spreads the product out evenly and the product definitely goes a long way so there's no wasting any of it by doing it this way. 

The mask itself was just simple to use, refreshing on the skin, smelled amazing and it actually combatted my oily skin without making it dry! I'm really impressed that my skin actually looks normal after using it, which is a weird thing to say but as you can probably see from the photos, my skin isn't the best. Of course, if you don't have normal to oily skin like I do then this post might be completely irrelevant, but if you see any of their other tubed masks like the Cucumber Peel off (all skin types) or the Strawberry Souffle (dry skin) then please give them ago, they're just too affordable and too damn good to leave them on the shelf.

I'll be doing a giveaway over on my twitter for a chance for you lovely lot to get your hands on 7th Heaven's international best-selling Dead Sea Mud Masks, a 7th Heaven headband and a few samples of their Dead Sea Peel Off mask. You must be following me and 7th Heaven on Twitter to be eligible to enter and you must be living in the UK, the winner will be announced on the 15th of September! 


I just want to end this post by saying a huge thank you to 7th Heaven for sending out these masks for me to try, I'm really fussy when it comes to skincare as my skin is so sensitive but I've had a great experience trying these bad boys out. Make sure you keep an eye on my twitter for that giveaway as well, whats your favorite mask from 7th Heaven? Or what would you like to try from this brand?
