Hey its face mask Friday and once again it feels like forever and a day since I wrote one of this. To be honest with you all there is a lot of drama going on in my life right now. No pun intended but seriously it isn’t just my skin that needs a little tlc! Skincare is really important to me and most weeks I share my own opinion and review on a face mask. Most for my skin type normal to cry but others just end up in the basket as well!
This week’s mask is by the brand Frank Body, a brand I have used a handful of times and one I would say is fairly new to the market. I really think since wearing a mask out in public my skin has become prone to blemishes and is rougher where the mask sits. So that is why I wanted to try their anti drama mask. It is a charcoal face mask to help the pores. Chamomile, honey, lavender and charcoal are blended together to help reduce acne, remove dirt and impurities. Which is meant to calm the skin and sooth it.
Their packaging I think must be different depending on where you buy from and the size you buy. For me this looks like a small sachet of baby food but you may find this in a tube. I guess having a variety of sizes helps you try before you commit to the bottle that will last months! It is cute packaging though never the less and works. With its creams and baby pinks. Really simple as well. For the size I brought be mindful that there isn’t any directions on it. Though I wore for 20 minutes by my knowledge of other masks. This could depend on what size you buy.
Such an easy mask to apply. Now time should be fairly available being we are in lockdown right now. But for me I am so busy that I had this on whilst in the bath. Either make the time for skincare or multitask allowing the time within something else. The texture of this is soft and smooth. Applies nicely to the face and honestly I must of used a third of the sachet. A small amount went a long way which is good as well, especially for masks that you may want to use more than once a week.
Once I was happy with my even and thick layer I just went and chilled in the bath for 20 minutes, maybe slightly more. Weirdest thing for me but to others that must be normal. The scent though is a little bit on the playdoh side, which is a little off putting at first. But as I just mentioned allowed me to unwind and take care of myself within bath time only. Anyone that knows me as well, knows I love a good hot bubble bath! So it was perfect and something I would consider again.
When it came to wash it off, it was easier as well considering I was in the bath. The best thing was being able to dunk my face in the water rather than splashing my face several times over the skin. Saying that though a lot of grey mask was left around the bath when the water emptied. Which was hard work to clean off! But a little bit of a clean and was good as new.
Though my face was red after the mask it allowed my blemishes to open and heal quicker. They did appear but more at the end stages of them healing. The middle stages of acne forming proper spots didn’t happen. Which is good and did do as it was said to. So many I know suffer with dryer skin and blemishes where the masks sit and this did help. We must be a week on now and my face is just getting to the dry stage again. A weeks good skin and no blemishes is pretty good going.
My skin now though is amazing and smooth still. There isn’t a blemish/spot in sight. Just a little dry but that could be the need of some night cream and a good nights sleep.
The pouch I brought was £5 and that is for 35ml. As I mentioned I reckon I would get 3 uses out of this. So that is fairly good money wise. Though the 80ml is £15.75, so pricer. Look out for deals on this though because it is worth it especially if you are prone to break outs and blemishes!
I would recommend this mask. Though I am not prone to acne as such as I have grown older I do get rougher patches and blemishes around my cheeks and chin. So this did work purely on the basis of my skin being in an okay condition.
What is your go to mask at the minute?
