|The Body Shop £13|
My skin has been getting random dry patches due to sensitivity to weather changes and pulling constant all-nighters, so I decided to try out the Body Shop moisture sink in mask to hydrate and help repair my skin. The mask contains Vitamin E to nourish and protect the skin, cotton seed oil and rice bran to provide intense moisture and organic soya oil to moisturise and heal. The perfect benefits i'm looking for!
To use this mask, you simply apply a thin layer onto your skin and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then tissue off the excess as recommended. However, I like to leave it on overnight for an intensive treatment and like a sleeping pack. A small amount is enough to cover your entire face. It also has a cooling sensation when you apply it.
The mask has a gel like texture due to the glycerin - great for dehydrated skin. It sinks/melts into the skin well, absorbing in all the good stuff within seconds and does not leave any residue behind. It also has a light rose scent.
I used this mask multiple times a week and found that it didn't really do much for me. It leaves my face feeling refreshed and soft after usage; delivers moisture to my skin but not particularly well. The hydration is temporary and does not last. There are better products that would be able to offer more moisture. Not a bad product, just quite average in my opinion. I am unlikely to repurchase it. I have read some other reviews where users experienced stinging, I believe this is because the mask is more suited towards dehydrated skin rather than dry or sensitive skin. I have not experienced any stinging myself thankfully.
