“ Brand: Pretty Polly / Type: Leg Mask / Suitable for: Leg / What it does: Enriches, „
I too spotted this in the 99p shop and as I have a holiday coming up chucked it in the basket. When I got home a gave it a whirl- uimpressed at first, it doesn't smell great and looks an unappealing beige/grey colour. I slathered on a thin layer as per the instructions, left for 5 minutes and rinsed off- MY WORD my legs felt devine- so silky and soft and the looked smooth and pefect (they don't normally) Amazing. I'm off down the 99p shop for some more... it retails for about £9 elsewhere...
This is a review of Pretty Polly Rich Leg Mask. I have previously reviewed the identically packaged leg shaving cream and spotted this on the shelf in the 99p shop when I went to stock up on the previously mentioned product. In for a penny, in for 99p I thought as I scooped one of the 150ml pots of leg mask into my basket.
**What is it?**
Good question. When I got home and excitedly examined all my 99p bargains, I did wonder to myself momentarily, what on earth is a leg mask? The answer will follow...
The packaging is a blue tub with a screw top lid and a sticker on the bottom held all the information I needed to uncover the role and correct procedure of a leg mask. Pity I couldn't open the sticker open though! It peeled off the jar perfectly but I just couldn't get the top glossy page to yield to the paper fold out beneath. After a ridiculous 10 minutes I turned to my friend, the internet.
**This is what I found...**
Thick, smooth hydration and cleansing for lovely legs! Pretty Polly Rich Leg Mask is part of the Love Legs range and gives a luxurious skin cleanser for legs, that smooths, hydrates and pampers the skin.
The result is lovely looking and feeling legs that will be fit to show off, free from dry skin. Containing hydrating clays and minerals, this mask is ideal for all skin types including sensitive skin and is great for preparing legs for bronzing.
**How to use it**
Directions for use:Apply evenly over your legs and massage until covered. Leave on for around 5 minutes before rinsing clean with warm water and patting dry.
**What I found**
When I opened the lid, it was a moussy looking product within and quite gloopy. I scooped out a generous hand ful and smothered my legs from ankle to thigh with it. That five minutes is a strange one, you can't really sit or go anywhere for fear or smearing things with your leg mask (it doesn't set or anything) so I just hovered around in the bathroom playing with all my bottles of cosmetics etc until I could bear it no longer.
**The removal process**
As I wasn't washing my hair, I decided rather than shower, I'd get in the bath and whilst I read my book (bad habit) the product stayed on my legs more or less. Gentle circular motions removed the product until I was sat in a milky coloured (some would say mucky) bath water.
I got out of the bath and patted my legs dry and the skin felt quite fab, I have to say this was a luxurious feeling 'spa' product and I think if you were to alternate leg treatments you could do this once a week and exfoliate in between for the best looking legs anywhere!
I reckon I can get half a dozen or more treatments out of the 150ml tub. For 99p it is a really cheap but a quality pampering treatment. Because the packaging is identical I have to be careful that I don't mix this up with the other leg product from Pretty Polly in the blue jar.
I think this is a great treatment to get your legs soft and prepared for fake tan too.
Apart from it being a bit annoying that I couldn't read the instructions on the label, I liked this product and can tell you that it retails online at £8.75. So get to the 99p shop, quick - I know I'll be going back for more!
