Magical Masks from Chic Chiq!

Hey everyone!

This is technically going to be my last beauty post for a while, I have so much exciting content coming up though that I’m itching to share with you all so I’m sure you will not be disappointed! I’m also off on holiday in a week and a half so there’ll be an entire week of no posts on Black Tulip Beauty whilst I relax and recharge. I have been consistently posting 3 times a week since October (excusing the odd 2 occasions where I only uploaded twice due to health reasons) and I must say, as much as I adore this blog and everything that comes with it, I need a break. When I arrive back from holiday, I’ll have some lovely pictures to share with you all though and possibly a beachwear and swimwear collaboration or two (ahhhh I’m excited but scared!).

Todays beauty post is on a fabulous brand called Chic Chiq who kindly offered to send me a little package of their masks to review! They are powdered masks and it’s the first time I’ve ever tried anything of the sort. You mix these with warm water or rose water to activate the products which reduces the need for Chic Chiq to put a load of stabilisers or preservatives in them. You also get the added bonus of getting to mix your own mask together which is quite exciting! The packaging of the masks is super cute and simple and they currently have 4 different types. Here’s what I thought of the 3 I got to try…

Chic Chiq De La Mer Mask // £4.99

The De La Mer mask contains spirulina algae and lemongrass and has been created for the purpose of providing extra nourishment and hydration to the skin. Spirulina algae is rich in vitamins A and C and is known to delay the effect of aging and give a youthful radiance so this can also be used as an anti-aging mask. This mask is suitable for all skin types, especially tired and dull skin which is perfect for me!

I mixed two or so teaspoons of the powdered mask with a few drops of warm water as instructed and it formed into a thick paste. You can put as much water in as you want to get it to your desired consistency! Applying it onto my face with a brush gave a nice even coverage but the colour of it did make me look a little like The Hulk, haha! Leaving it on for 15 minutes led to the mask drying completely on all areas of the face. The instructions say to “roll” the mask off and wash away any left behind afterwards but I found it was quite difficult to do this. I managed to peel a few areas of it off but the easier way to remove it was just to use warm water and a flannel. I must say, this mask really did make my skin look brighter and more plump for a day or two afterwards and my boyfriend even mentioned it too. I definitely feel like it put radiance and a glow into my skin and it’s a product I will be sure to use right up.

Chic Chiq Á La Rose Mask // £4.99

The Á La Rose mask contains gentle rose petals and jojoba oil and has been formulated for the purpose of giving the skin a soothing and balancing effect. It’s aimed more towards dry skin but can be used on all skin types. The ingredients in this mask supply your skin with anti-inflammatory, conditioning and blemish-fighting properties!

As with the mask above, I again mixed two or so teaspoons of the mask with a little bit of warm water. This one also turned in to a paste but it wasn’t as well held together as the De La Mer, it was a lot more bitty. It looked like a purple superfood smoothie and to me smelt like rose with a hint of green tea which was really relaxing. This one was a bit harder to apply due to the texture of the mask but I still managed to get it all on just fine. There was really something about this mask that made it so soothing but I couldn’t put my finger on what. Unlike the De La Mer, this one did actually roll off of the face really nicely when rubbing it! It left my skin feeling and looking super soft and hydrated. I’d definitely recommend this mask for someone who needs hydration but doesn’t want anything too heavy or harsh on the skin.

Chic Chiq La Noce Mask // £4.99

The La Noce mask contains white turmeric, chickpea and calendula petals and is aimed at people with more unpredictable and uneven skin otherwise known as “combination”. Despite this, it can be used on all skin types and its properties include soaking up excess oil, unclogging pores and stimulating natural collagen production. It’s also known to help with the healing of irritated skin.

You know the process of mixing the mask by now. I couldn’t quite put my finger on the scent of this one, I guess you could say it was like subtle food-like smell? It wasn’t unpleasant at all though. It did however look like a much more yellow porridge which was a little odd looking to apply to the face but the consistency made it easy enough to put on. This mask was also pleasant to take off as it rolled off the face easily. As for how my skin looked afterwards, this might’ve actually been my favourite of the three. It reduced the redness on my face in general, particularly on blemishes and just made everything look so much more even. My skin looked well refreshed and like it’d had a lot more done to it than a natural mask sat on it for 15 minutes. It would be perfect to use just before going out – I am thoroughly impressed with this one!

I’d say the travel sachets contain around 3 to 4 uses of the mask depending on how much you apply each time. I think £4.99 is a pretty decent price when you’d pay around £3.50 for a singular sheet mask or something similar. I also think you get the added novelty of mixing your own mask together which is fun. You can also choose just how much you need, for example you might need two different masks on different areas of your face. You can just mix up however much you need for the individual sections leaving no wasted or unused product!

Have you ever tried a powdered mask or any Chic Chiq products?

’TIl Next Time,

    Ooh I haven’t tried these before or a powdered mask, but love the idea of mixing up what you need! Also love the sound of the last one – my skin is all over the place so something that would calm it down sounds right up my street!
    Also looking forward to some new posts – swimwear sounds AMAZING right now as I’ve been struggling to find some new bits for our honeymoon at the end of next month!

    I’ve never heard of this brand or the IDEA of a powdered mask but I have to say I’m in love with the concept. It must be really handy to travel with. Never put spirulina on my skin before but I like it in a smoothie so I’d definitely try that one. Such great value too! x

  4. These sound like so much fun, perfect for a girls night as well as your own ‘me’ time routine. I love the sound of each and every one of these masks, the novelty of mixing them up yourself and the benefits they have on the skin. Great review Alice, I’ll be picking up a few of these for myself, they sound fantastic.

      I hadn’t seen them before either so they must be pretty new! Haha bless you, I hope you get them! X

  8. These sound so good. I love the idea of mixing your own mask – as you say, you can choose how much or how little you mix up and you can combine the masks to produce your own unique facial, depending on what your skin needs. I think they all look great, I haven’t heard of the brand before but I’m definitely going to check them out now. Fab review, so helpful, and thank you for posting such great pictures too!

    I haven’t heard of Chic Chiq before but love how you can add rose water to start some magic! Even though the mask was a bit hard to remove, glad it gave some good results! It’s pretty cool how they capitalize on all of the skin-loving ingredients! I didn’t know turmeric is also good for your skin! Thanks for sharing your experience with these masks!

  14. Your last beauty post for a while – what?! I hope you have a fabulous time on holiday though, I’m looking forward to seeing all the snaps of you looking fabulous and I plan on living vicariously through you for a little while.. 😍 I love the sound of the A La Rose mask – I’m absolutely for anything and every product that fights blemishes because I seem to constantly be covered at the moment and I love the colour of it as well! I don’t know how I feel about the La Noce mask smelling like that, I’m not sure if that would put me off.. 😂🤷🏼‍♀️
