About once a week I give myself a mini-facial at home. I deep cleanse, scrub, apply a clay mask and follow up with a hydrating mask. Not only is it an indulgent beauty ritual, I find it leaves my skin clear and happy going into the week. Since I got this mask to try from Clarins, I've been using this as my hydrating mask.
Although it's a thick cream it hasn't broken me out - for which I'm grateful. You apply a layer that's thick enough for a even coat of white and after about 15 minutes you'll notice that some of it has disappeared. According to Clarins, this means your skin was dehydrated and it's absorbed the mask.
The mask contains hyaluronic acid, katafray bark for hydration and sobier bud for circulation. But honestly, all it really seems to do is hydrate. Nothing else.
It smells lovely actually, not too strong, faintly of roses and vanilla. Normally I'd hate such a scent but the mask actually smells soothing, cosy and spa-y.
At RM135 per tube, I certainly won't be repurchasing this. For dry skinned gals though I can see how it may be a god-send. But as my skin really isn't dry at all, I use so little that this large tube of 75ml will last me quite awhile. Still, for all it does - hydrate - I'm sure I can find a cheaper alternative. I wish it whitened, de-wrinkled... ANYTHING other than merely hydrate.
What's your favourite hydrating mask? Recommendations please?
