I missed Face Mask Friday last week because in truth I just had no time to apply this when I could take photos.. granted these are clearly not in the best lighting conditions but I couldn’t miss it two weeks running so I had to make do. I’ve had this mask for a few weeks.. going on months perhaps and it’s been on my list for a while.. in fact I may have already mentioned this in a favourites video, damn! I gave away the ending! This falls in to the small but mighty category for me. It’s a tiny tube compared to the monster masks it resides with in the designated basket but it packs a punch. The sole purpose is to hydrate the skin and boy does it?! You apply a generous (thin in my case as it’s not the cheapest and I’m using it sparingly) leave for 10 minutes and wipe off the excess with a cotton pad. This leaves a residue and allows the product to sink in to your skin and do it’s thing rather than being washed off like a regular mask. Me being me I didn’t read the instructions at first and did my usual trick of leaving it for hours then using my clarisonic to buff it away.. now this is not the directed application method but it left my skin so soft I would still recommend you try it. I’ve used it the way you should also and find it very effective for my recent dry, flakey skin issues so in my mind it’s multi purpose. With that in mind I suppose you could say it soothes but only the way any moisturiser does really.
Out of the tube it’s a pale blue tacky lotion that glistens on your skin rather than leaves it looking ghostly or masked in any way. You could wear it overnight for a super intense moisture hit (which I’ve also tried and found very effective) or just keep it in stocks for your dry skin days but either way coming up to winter (hasn’t it been bitter this week?) it’s going to be a skin care staple for me!
RRP is £15.00 for 50ml but I found it on offer here for just £10 until 15th October. They actually have a third off all La Roche-Posay so I’m very tempted to pick up something else to try! Any recommendations?
