Hello beauties! I hope you’re all well. So with these high winds we have been having lately, my skin has been especially dry lately. This mask has been my best friend. I purchased this in a recent The Body Shop Haul.
Sink some antioxidant Vitamin E into your skin. Bring skin back to optimum moisture level with this intensely hydrating mask.
Smooth a thin layer onto dry, clean skin with your fingers. Leave for 10 minutes. You may feel a slight cooling sensation. Then simply wipe away with a tissue.
This mask is like a thin facial cream. It doesn’t dry onto your face like a usual mask would, which is great if you have dry skin like me at the moment. It smells amazing too, like really amazing… So much so when I first tried it I had my nose in it for 10 minutes before putting it on! The thing I love about this is that because it doesn’t dry onto your skin like other masks, it’s so easy to remove! I just use a cloth to remove mine. This opens up more opportunities to actually use it. I can use it before work if I have a little extra time to wait around, because you haven’t got the time consuming job of removing it after!
It’s very cooling too. I can imagine it being so soothing in the summer when your house is like an oven, or you have had a stressful day at work. It leaves your skin feeling so so soft. Like a babies bottom if you will! You don’t need to use alot either. Because it’s so thin, it spreads beautifully so a tub lasts a while. This product currently retails at £13 for a 100ml tub. You can check it out on The Body Shop’s website here.
Although I do love this product and I think it’s amazing, I do have some concerns for people with sensitive skin. Looking at the ingredients there are so many fragrance ingredients which we all know irritates skin. My skin isn’t irritated easily so I’m alright, but if you have especially sensitive skin I could maybe look elsewhere. But that’s my only gripe with this product to be honest.
Vitamin E is amazing. It’s one of the most powerful antioxidant vitamins you can put on your face! With that, you’d think this mask is nothing short of amazing. I use this about 3 times a week to keep my skin feeling soft. That works great for me. I’ve noticed that you can’t really use this once a week and have soft skin all week, so this isn’t no mirical cure to dry skin, you need to keep on top of it!
Have you tried this mask? What did you think? Can you recommend any masks for me to use? Let me know!
