Face Mask Friday – Retexturising Glycolic Peel

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI can’t believe I haven’t already blogged this one.. I had to do a thorough search to check I hadn’t as it’s one of my absolute favourites and I KNOW it’s featured in multiple videos so i can only apologise for those of you I haven’t told because you have been MISSING OUT! First up it’s glycolic so it’s not going to be for everyone but if like me you don’t mind that slightly uncomfortable tingle because ‘it feels like it’s doing something’ you will probably love this as much as I do. If you’re a bit unsure I’d suggest testing it on some out of sight skin before plastering it all over your face, I know some people really don’t get along with Glycolic acid but my skin responds really well to it and regardless of money this is the best mask version I have tried to date.. including that overpriced REN one I used to love so much!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s peel off (bonus!) but it’s REALLY peel off so you’re not going to be left will stringy bits you have to take a towel to, it routinely comes off in one creepy face shaped piece. I find that I get that tingle a little more if I rub it in a bit when applying.. not sure if this is good or bad but again if you’re in that ‘like to feel it working’ camp you’ll probably do this too. In about 5/10 minutes it’s set (and unlike most masks this is not one I leave on forever so it’s genuinely fast acting) and when I peel it away my skin is BABY soft! I tend to avoid this if my skin is dry or breaking out, I usually use it right after I’ve rid myself of something like that and my skin is looking dull and it works a treat! There’s another mask very similar from this range that I bought at the same time, I forget the name but it’s not peel off and the tube is green.. that’s no good, don’t get that one! – THIS IS THE ONE! Oh and it’s on offer! Score!

    I have this in my drawer, I used it once and didn’t like the texture so went back to my Sanctuary Spa glycolic peel off mask, which I adore. But having seen this, I will dig it out again and give it another chance!!

      it is a weird texture, kind of bitty, not smooth but I think that’s what makes it so easy to peel

    This sounds amazing, I really like the REN mask it makes my skin look amazing but it is quite expensive.

      I loved the REN one but like you say.. £££ This is basically the same thing for me at a fraction of the cost

    I like the sound of this. *adds it to my ever expanding skincare shopping list*

    This is amazing, and so affordable at even the original price when it isn’t even on offer… same sort of price as the soap and glory peaches and clean. Does it actually cause the skin to peel or is it just a peel off face – mask? New reader of your blog and absolutely love it! XxX

      Thank you! N It doesn’t cause the skin to peel at all (if it did I don’t think it’s for you lol) and yes comparable price with peaches and clean and similar results but I found that P&C became less effective the more I used it.. like my skin got used to it or something so it’s nice to have an alternative

      good question, I’m guessing no

    this mask sounds amazing! I love that it peels off and you don’t have to worry about getting a damp cloth. I’ve heard glycolic is really good for uneven skin, so I can’t wait to give this a try! Love that it’s pretty affordable too! Great post.

      yes! My skin has so many uneven areas and that’s why I use it!

    I used this yesterday and have to agree, it’s brill. One of the things I like most is the peel off, even with a thin layer, it’s peels off pretty much in one go! Love it, even for more mature skin!

    • missbudgetbeauty

      I would guess it’s even better for mature skin since it’s designed to brighten! I agree best thing is the peel 😉

    I love a good face mask and this sounds lovely!
    I’ll have to give it a try and do a little review myself i think, thanks for the recommendation!

    I bought this a while back from you mentioning it in a favourites video,and love it! So cheap compared to some glycolic treatments.
    My only gripe is that the first time I used it,it was lovely and smooth and clear but since then it’s turned opaque and more gloopy/lumpy. Still does the job though!

    I’m obsessed with the Clearly Youthful range now. I just got the cleanser, the two serums and the spot treatment. When I saw they contained AHAs and BHAs I was sold.

    Boo I got the green one by mistake after hearing you talk about this one in a video :-/ Gonna have to go and buy this one now aren’t I? Lol

    Need to try this as my Ren version is running out, plus it’s a hell of a lot cheaper 🙂
