Happy face mask Friday. Who is going out tonight? Or are you staying in for a nice chilled pamper evening? I would opt for a chilled pamper night over anything these days.
If you are new to my blog and this is your first face mask Friday welcome. Every week I try a different mask and review it for you every Friday. I love a face mask. Skin care is so important, and I naturally have very good skin. It’s a dry to normal consistency. I go for masks for my type of skin the majority of the time. Occasionally if they sound amazing to me then I will try them too. I prefer masks you apply yourself over sheet ones. Purely for a better fit. The sheet masks I just can’t get to fit correctly. Where they are big to suit everyone.
This week’s mask I actually brought as a pack of 3, so stay tuned for the other 2 in the next couple weeks. I have used Anatomicals products before, but not their face masks. So, I was excited to see these and try them out. I love their little phrases that are completely random, they put on their products. You can buy this on its own though too. It’s a bargain at just under £2. So good for a newbie to the face masks or if you just want a top up of brightness. A spare for when you just want one but run out.
As always when it comes to masks, I am all for reading the packet to make sure I apply right, use the correct amount and wear for the time given or over that time.
I love the packaging for this mask. All 3 came in a packet together. Each are bright vibrant colours and really do catch your eyes. The strawberry one being first, of course is red. This is where I became super happy to find out these all seem to be masks you apply. I also like the fact the opening of the packet is at the bottom, which is different from all others I have used so far.
As I applied this, it smelt of strawberry yogurt, but thicker like moose. Thinking about it now it reminds me of the lush face masks. The texture and colouring only. There was a lot in the packet which is good, and I managed to apply a thick layer over my face and neck. You do have to be careful though, even if you think you are good at applying not near your eyes or lips it still somehow manages to get there. I had a little bit on the bottom of my eye and it stung even though it wasn’t in my eye. I took this off with a cotton bud and along my eyebrows too. It then didn’t sting or irritate me.
I left it work for a good 10 minutes. That is what it stated to on the pack or until the mask had hardened. When the time was up, I run the water to a warm temperature. Run the flannel through and washed it off my face and neck gently. This took some time because of the amount on me and how tough it was to rub off.
Once it was finally off my face, my face was a little red, but this seemed to disappear soon after. I couldn’t really see a different to my face but this morning my skin feels in really good condition. Smooth and ever so slightly oily in places that would normally be dry.
I would recommend this mask to anyone. It’s a good one to keep for when you randomly want to do a mask or if you run out of your usual one. It’s really cheap and works as good as the expensive ones. So good if you are on a budget. It is also good if you are starting out your skincare routine, not sure what your skin type is and how/what you need. I would definitely use this mask again. But more so if I wasn’t using masks for dry skin the week before.
What is your go to face mask? Would you try this one? Have you heard of Anatomicals as a brand? Is there a certain brand/mask you would recommend me to try and review?
