T-Zone Self-Heating Masks: Skincare Saviour?

I saw that this new range of skincare called T-Zone had appeared in Superdrug but I’ll be honest, they didn’t really catch my eye to begin with. The skincare products I’d been using recently were working like a dream and I was more interested in the make-up stands than buying even more skin products. However, I started to see T-Zone popping up more and more amongst bloggers’ posts and absolutely every review I’ve read so far has been singing their praises. This meant that I just had to see what the hype was about. I was on the lookout for some more face masks so I decided to give T-Zone a whirl, I originally wanted to buy their peel-off mask but it was sold out in my Superdrug store so I decided to pick up a box of their self-heating masks instead. I’m more than pleasantly surprised by these masks so I just had to share the love.

T-Zone Charcoal & Bamboo Self-Heating Masks

The very first thing that impressed me about these face masks was that you get four sachets in a box for Ā£4.99. Considering the average face mask sachet usually costs around the Ā£2 mark I thought that this was pretty amazing value for money. I’m also loving self-heating masks lately because I have the most stubborn blackheads in the universe so heated ones really help to open up my pores and get the bad stuff out. These masks have activated charcoal in which promises to control excess oils and make your skin look much clearer. As I tend to get quite oily skin throughout the day particularly on my forehead and T-zone, I really hoped that this would be the answer to all my skincare prayers. This is super easy to apply, it recommends to apply it to a wet face so that the water can activate the self-heating action. You only have to leave this on for a minute or two which is really convenient. You can really feel it doing its job on your face, it stayed heated for the whole time I had it on whereas other masks I’ve tried don’t stay warm for long at all. It also doesn’t dry and harden on your face which I love because it made it so much easier to wash off afterwards.

So, did these face masks do as promised? The first thing I noticed after first washing the mask off was that my skin felt a lot smoother. I tend to get weird bumps under my skin that are quite stubborn to get rid of but these were almost completely gone. It does have a slight exfoliating element to it when you’re massaging it in so this might be what helped this. Although my blackheads didn’t magically disappear, there were definitely way less and I think that with a few more uses it may actually totally get rid of them. This was the thing I was most impressed by because I rarely find anything that gets rid of those bad boys. This also did really well at controlling my excess oils, although it was only for a day or two so you’d have to keep topping up with more masks to really get results. I don’t mind that though as they’re cheap, quick and easy to use. The only thing I didn’t like so much was that it did seem to try out some areas of my face a little bit but this was nothing that a serum or moisturiser couldn’t fix which I would apply after doing a mask anyway. If you do suffer from dry or sensitive skin then these might not agree with you but as with every skin product, it reacts differently from person to person.

All in all, I’m actually so impressed with this product and I’d love to try out some more of T-Zone’s skincare range. They have a peel-off mask, a face wash, face wipes and also some nose pore strips that I’ve heard absolutely amazing things about. For such affordable products there’s nothing I can really slate them for and I’ll definitely be picking up some more things to try out. Have you tried any of T-Zone’s skincare range yet? Let me know what you think in the comments below and as always, thank you so much for reading this post and supporting my little blog, it means the absolute world to me.

    So happy you’ve tried their products! Shame you couldn’t get your hands on the peel-off, maybe next time. So far I’m loving the face wash, but I’m desperate to try the wipes for when I’m having extra lazy days x

      Ooh I need to try the face wash then! I don’t really use wipes anymore but I just want the peel-off mask so bad x

    I definitely agree with you about all the praise T-Zone has received from bloggers! I would love to try their products, I’m thinking about picking up some of their masks soon. I have sensitive skin so I am hopeful they work with that! My face is a bit problematic at the moment so I don’t want to make it worse. Perfect post lovely definitely thinking about giving the Self Heating Masks a try.

    This is like the 5th review about this brand being fabulous that I’ve read, I really need to try some stuff from them! We also have quite similar skin types it sounds like so I really hope these would work just as well for me. Would love to hear what your skin is like after you’ve used the whole box of the masks and if it’s improved long term šŸ™‚

    I’ve read so many posts about these products! I can’t believe I haven’t seen them anywhere yet. Might have to give it a try as everyone seems to be loving them! So far I haven’t found anything that would actually do anything to my blackheads so you’re getting my hopes up! šŸ™‚

    • September 8, 2017 / 3:04 pm

      Definitely give them a go, they’re so affordable as well! Trust me my blackheads are SO stubborn and this has definitely helped x

    • September 13, 2017 / 9:20 am

      Sheet masks are really cool and hydrating, love them! But heating ones are amazing for getting the dirt out of your pores x
