“ Brand: Christy / Type: Face Mask / Suitable for: Face „
Another face masque...I just love lying in the bath with ridiculous lotions and potions on my face!
I don't know much about ingredients but the fact that it contains witch hazel certainly appealed because I always think this has soothing properties.
This one promises to energise your complexion, absorb excess oils and draw out deep down impurities, so leaving you fresh faced and ready for another day of grime.
THE PRODUCT AND PACKAGING
This comes in one of those plastic sachets with a tear at the corner. Not a great idea because for this you really do need to find a pair of scissors. No scissors means a tiny bit of the packaging will be opened and you can squeeze only a tiny amount out at a time.
the actual face mask is a yellow/green colour, not very pleasant, but it does have a really nice lemon smell.
Make sure your face is totally clean and apply to your face and neck.
Leave for 5 minutes and then rinse away.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
The "special" price was actually buy 3, get one free at the princely sum of £2.97, but me being the original bargain hunter bought a pack of 4 for £1 at a local shop.
At 25p for each 15g packet, these were always going to be worth a try!

WHAT I THOUGHT
i have given these a try on a few occasions but haven't been especially impressed.
On the front of the packet, it states that it is non drying which I don't know whether it means it doesn't dry your face or it doesn't dry on your face. i was soon to find out. Once applied, it's the nice bit...just lying down for 5 minutes. However, the bit I don't like is the fact that this mask does actually harden and dry. I prefer the ones which stay soft because they feel more moisturising.
The mask is for problem and oily skin so I suppose if you have this skin type then the slightly drying properties may be ok, but for me, it isn't moisturising enough.
The smell is pleasant, fresh smelling and clean, and it is certinly easy to use. However, although I have used all 4 of the sachets, I won't be buying any more, even at this bargain price
