My skin is naturally quite dry, but certain factors can make it a lot drier; cold weather being the main one, which is why I’m looking forward to summer so much! As you can imagine, the UK in February isn’t exactly boiling so my skin tends to get a lot drier, especially if I’m trying out any new skincare products which my face might disagree with a little. At this point, I pull out my favourite face mask to tend to the issue.
The Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Mask is amazing, and at only £2.95 it’s a total bargain. I love everything about this mask, from the packaging to the way it makes your skin so soft and moisturised. This mask just really does it for me.
Starting with the actual application of the mask, it at first had me a little confused: it says to massage it onto a cleansed, dry face and allow it 10-15 minutes to quench the skin, patting the remaining residue off with a tissue. I decided I didn’t like those rules, so adapted it a little to meet my needs. I apply it either quite thinly as a normal face mask or a little thicker and let it sit on my skin for as long as I can keep it on for (usually ends up being about an hour because I literally have nothing to do with my life other than sit with face masks on and stare at a computer screen) and then I tend to just wash it off or wipe away any of the residue with micellar water. It does absorb really nicely into the skin and leaves it feeling so soft and supple and left my complexion looking so glowy and fresh. It doesn’t have a super thick or super thin formula so it moisturises amazingly without clogging up your skin, making it oily or feel heavy. It smells really nice but isn’t so scented that it will irritate your skin.
I love the packaging, it’s really sleek and the actual size of the product makes it nice and travel friendly – I use this a good three times a week so I’d need it if I were to be away from home! It’s great value as a little definitely goes a long way so it will last for ages; I’m sure you could get at least ten masks out of this which is amazing for £2.95! Superdrug also have a de-stressing aloe vera mud mask and a cucumber peel off mask that I’d love to try out and intend on doing so, if they’re anything like this one I’m sure I’ll love it!
