I love a mask… Every now and then my skin just needs that extra boost and these three gems are the ones on rotation right now. Each with a different purpose, but all a real treat and hugely effective.
This mask is a huge favourite and one I’ll be replenishing very soon as I literally only have enough left for one more application. It does what is say on the packaging— invigorates and brightens skin’s appearance. I love the cooling/burning (in a good way!) sensation my skin feels on application. It requires a generous layer over face and neck that dries over a 7-10 minute period. On rinse skin feels noticeably smoother and refreshed.
Perfect the day before, or even the day of a special event when you want your skin to be at it’s glowing best.
Oh… anything La Mer… This mask is one that I’ve actually never used as instructed! You’re supposed to apply a generous layer onto cleansed skin and wipe off after 8-10 minutes (which I’m sure works a treat) however, I apply in the evening after cleansing and leave on overnight for maximum benefit. It was on the recommendation of a La Mer facialist so not some rogue decision on my part 😉 This mask is a really creamy consistency— mush like a moisturiser and doesn’t dry hard but sits on the skin and slowly absorbs, which is why it works so well as an overnight treatment. In the morning my skin looks and feels plumper and more healthy generally.
This one is new in. Similar to the Kiehl’s one in that it has a cooling effect on application and drys hard. Rinse off after 5-10 minutes. I love how this one changes colour— as you rub it onto the face and neck using circular motions the phytonutrient-enriched microcapsules burst causing the mask to turn a dark shade of green. I have been really impressed with the immediate effect of this mask— I could barely see my pores once I’d rinsed it off! Great mask that leaves skin radiant and youthful.
