I occasionally like to use a face mask, especially in the summer when I get more spot outbreaks, due to sweating. I usually get the Montagne Jeunesse face masks in Wilkinson or Superdrug for around £1 each, but I spotted Superdrug's own brand of face masks for 99p each, and on a 4 for 3 deal. I bought a few different ones, but this review is for the 'Cucumber Cooling Clay Mask'. All of the masks I purchased are clay masks, since I don't enjoy removing the peel off ones!
APPLYING THE MASK
This face mask comes in a sachet, which I found quite difficult to open. In future, I plan on opening it before I wash my face, so I'm not fumbling with it with wet hands. The problem with opening these sachets, is that quite often the mask will squirt out of the opening as you're ripping it. To avoid this, I try to push the mask down as much as possible before I open it.
After I eventually got it open, I started to apply the product. It's very thick and goes a long way, and I didn't need to use the whole packet. So if you're lucky, you might be able to get two treatments from one sachet. After covering my whole face in a thick layer, my face started to sting a bit. The stinging was mostly coming from my upper lip area, and afterwards I read the packet and discovered that you're meant to avoid the lip area...woops.
The stinging didn't last for long though, and after the recommended 10-15 minutes, I removed the mask by rinsing my face with warm water.
It took me a very long time to rinse all of the mask off, since it was so thick, and I don't think my water meter would approve of how long it took! However, after the product was washed away, my skin did feel noticeably smoother and softer. I wouldn't say that it particularly cooled my skin though, it just felt like a normal face mask.
I'm fairly pleased with this product, I got a good deal with the 4 for 3 offer, and I'm looking forward to trying the other masks I bought. I'm not completely satisfied with it, as it did sting my face, so for a few minutes it was uncomfortable. I am pleased with the results however, and I would buy this mask again, unless one of the other's is kinder to my skin. Overall, a nice product, and I give it 4 stars.
