Weekly Worship: Rituals, Shu Uemura and MasqueBar

Rituals Hammam Secret Candle review

Price: £19.50 / $29.00

House of Fraser /

The Rituals Hammam Secret Candle has quickly snatched the starring role in my weekday evenings routine - I light this little piece of heaven the second I get home. It combines refreshing eucalyptus with rosemary, which creates a relaxing and warming atmosphere. Oh, and the scent? Absolutely gorgeous!

The candle burns for 50 hours and the scent it produces is pretty powerful, filling the room long after it's been put out. The sooner Rituals make a three wick version of this the better!

Shupette Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

Price: £20.00 / $20.00

Selfridges /

Shu Uemura is the brand behind the world's most loved eyelash curler. Known simply as the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, this multi-award winning beauty tool takes lashes from flat to flutteringly fabulous in a matter of seconds.

Shu Uemura recently launched a limited edition version of the curler for Shupette, the brand's 2014 holiday collection. This new, limited edition curler is exactly the same as its predecessor, however it comes equipped with a cute Choupette charm - hello collector's item!

Now I cannot stress this enough, the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler is just  amazing. It is super easy to use, grabs on to all of your lashes in one go and, unlike some curlers out there, does not pinch the skin or damage the lashes in any way.

MasqueBar Anti-Wrinkle Sheet Mask review

Price: £9.99 / $9.99

Stockist: Boots / Target

MasqueBar is a Korean face mask brand that recently launched in the UK. I've been trying (and loving!) the Anti-Wrinkle Sheet Mask, which comes in a pack of three. It is almost identical to those luxury face mask sheets sold by the likes of SK-II, however this one is much  more affordable.

The mask feels cold on the skin when first applied, which provides a lovely refreshing sensation. It stays on the face relatively well and even when it's removed, a lot of product remains on skin. I always rub this excess in for added omph!

Now speaking honestly, this mask doesn't work anti-ageing miracles. However it does deeply hydrate the skin, leaving it plump and free of some fine lines. Whether it is a serious anti-ageing product or not, I really love it. It feels amazing on the skin, it's affordable and it deeply hydrates the skin. What's not to love?
