We have reached the final week of our How To Look After Your Skin on a Budget series. We have been lucky enough to find some incredible treatments that are not only good for your skin, but affordable options and this week is no different.

Antioxidant Green Tea Essence Mask by Beauugreen

Another offering from the Korean Beauty brand BeauuGreen, is this green teas mask to help enrich the skin, soothe and calm the skin as well as nourish and moisturise.

When it comes to the skin, green tea is used as an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. This means that it helps to reduce the damage and stress caused by oxidation, soothing and calming skin that has been damaged by the environment.

The Mask

When the mask was opened there was a slightly flowery scent, it was not particularly strong and I found it quite pleasant. It had been sealed in foiled packaging, much like the previous BeauuGreen masks we have looked at, and was soaked in the treatment leaving plenty of excess in the packet once removed. This was done being careful not to drip it on clothing or furniture and placed over the face, the mask adhering with ease to every little bump and groove.

This time the mask did feel cooling to the touch, but seemed slightly more wet that the previous ones that we’ve seen in previous weeks. Also, I did find that this particular mask had a stickier residue compared to the other two. This was not something that lasted for long, but was noticeable whilst applied and shortly after it had been removed.

As previous explained, I have skin that is dry and temperamental, I routinely suffer with random patches of red skin that can be itchy and uncomfortable. I found that the Green Tea Essence Mask soothed my skin and left it feeling calm and revitalised. My skin was clear and even, feeling smooth to the touch and nourished.

Was it Worth it?

Definitely! Another fantastic budget find that can added to my weekly routine at a reasonable and affordable price. I found the mask to me relaxing and felt not just refreshed where my skin was concerned, but my brain had a little happy boost too!

    It make sense that Green Tea would be good for our skin because it is good for our insides! I like the Weleda products, they are very moisturising and my skin is very dry.

    1. avatar

      Yes! Green Tea is fantastic all around. I don’t think any of the team use Weleda, we will have to check them out!

    My go to budget skin care is CeraVe cleanser, moisturiser, face cream and eyecream.

    I make my own toner. It’s only two ingredients of rosewater and distilled water. You can a drink of pil in it if you wish.

    I used to use high end skin products. I had to change to very gentle products because I starting using a tretnoin prescription based anti aging cream..

    CeraVe was recommended. I would not go back to my others now

    I’m following on Twitter, Threads, Instagram, Tiktox and Facebook. Facebook is the name that will show on here.

    I love this writing style you have set up for your blog too

    My absolute must have is Simple facial wipes, my 13 year old son has severe learning difficulties, he is prone to spots and doesn’t have that much patience for skincare. Each evening during his bedtime routine we use a wipe each to clear the day away. I love Simple products & I usually get these when they are on offer too.

      That is a fantastic way to incorporate the routine for your son. I love the facial wipes also, Simple is such a fantastic brand!
