Hi there everyone, hope you are all doing great.
Today’s post is about a product I have raved about in my monthly favourites before. I wanted to try it out for a couple months before I wrote a proper review about it so it would be totally honest. I am super excited to write this post as this mask has become a staple part of my skincare routine.
The facial mask is an exfoliating gel mask designed to revive and revitalise tired and stressed skin. The mask reduces the appearance of fatigue on skin and give a fresher and more wide awake look. The key ingredient in this mask is the super-food acai berry which is rich with anti-oxidants and vitamins which help to boost the immune system. Another key ingredient is Babassu oil which helps to hydrate skin preventing moisture loss as well as soften the skin.
The first thing you will think when you open this is holy shit, this smells AMAZING. I’m not kidding you when I say I’ve never used a nicer smelling face mask. It smells so fresh and juicy which is nice since the mask is made out of acai berries. The mask has a thin, jam like consistency. Since the mask is more like a gel it is so easy to spread along your face without it drying up.
I use this face mask between 1-3 times a week, I constantly feel tired and exhausted so this really helps make my skin look fresh even when I’m not. I leave the mask on for about 15-20 minutes, even though it says to remove after 10 half the time I’m too lazy to get up to take it off again or have forgotten it’s on. It’s a really light and bouncy mask which is good on the skin has it is so hydrating, after using this there is a noticeable glow in my skin the next day. I am obsessed with keeping my skin smooth and hydrated so again another reason this mask is great for me. Acai berries contain vitamin A,C and E making it perfect for boosting and revitalising your skin.
My final thoughts on this are that this mask does everything it claims to do. The anti-oxidant, vitamin enriched acai berry mask turns dull, tired skin into glowing fresh skin. This is the perfect pick me up after a long day at work, or perfect to use before going out as it only needs to be applied for 10 minutes. The amazing smell instantly boosts your mood as well, it is especially good as the scent lingers on the skin after the mask has been removed. I have combination skin a bit on the oily side and this mask doesn’t aggravate my skin at all. Since it is quite a hydrating and moisturising mask as well I was worried it would increase oiliness in my skin but it doesn’t do that at all.
Some people might be put off by the price, £16 for a face mask might seem a bit steep to some people but I promise it is worth it. It comes in a decent sized tub and as I mentioned earlier in this post it spreads across your face so easily so a little goes a long way. In terms of quality as well, I don’t mind paying more money for a good product as long as I like it and will use it and this is something I would repeatedly spend £16 on over and over again. Also, this mask is completely vegan and cruelty free which is amazing knowing no animals were harmed to make this.
