Product review of the week - Superdrug Cucumber Cooling Mask

18 February 2014

Hello my Lovelies! It seems like ages since I've done a product review of the week but here we are again! Today I'll be reviewing the Superdrug's own Cucumber cooling clay face mask.

I'll be the first to admit, I was honestly quite apprehensive about whether this product would work for me as my face is sensitive and dry, however the mask claimed to be ideal for sensitive skin and it would 'eliminate impurities and sooth skin for a vibrant fresh faced look'

The cucumber cooling clay mask claims it's ideal for
sensitive skin

The directions on the back said to apply with the mask with your fingers to a clean, dry face and leave on for 10 - 15 minutes and then wash it off.

The facemask straight out of the packet
I was quite surprised at the consistency of the facemask as I had only previously used gel styled masks before. It's quite thick with almost a sticky feel to it. I think this is better than the gel because its much easier to apply and it's easy to see if you missed any spots as it is far more opaque than your usual gel mask!

I had no problems applying this mask and they are certainly more than generous with the amount given in the packet! One thing I would say was rather disappointing was, as I first started to apply the mask it did sting quite a bit which surprised me as it was meant to be 'ideal for sensitive skin'. However, this is the only issue I had and since I purchased it at the bargain price of 99p I can hardly complain!

Over the 10-15 minute period I could notice and feel as the mask began to harden from its previously soft state. I then grabbed some cotton wool pads and gently started to cleanse the mask from my face. Instantly my face felt fresher and more revitalized. Hours later my face is still reaping in the benefits and feels lovely and hydrated and soft.

This is a lovely weekly treat which I would recommend to you all. If you aren't interested in this 'flavour' there is a wide range available on the Superdrug website and they are currently on offer 4 for the price of 3. Four facemasks for £3, you can hardly complain! Link to the website is here
