So, I’ve now finally tried Superdrug’s Fruit Sorbet Antioxidant Peel-Off Mask.
Out of the sachet this mask is very runny. I tried to keep the goo away from my eyebrows (with peel-of masks you never know what else comes off) but it didn’t really work.
So I let the goo settle for a minute and then I wiped the excess product off my eyebrows. That did work.
For the first couple of minutes the mask felt pleasantly cool and refreshing. But this sensation went as the mask dried.
Superdrug recommends to leave the mask on for 10 – 20 minutes or until the mask has dried. I left it on until it was completely dry – which was about 25 minutes. It was easy to peel the mask off. A few bits remained on my skin, but it was just as easy to remove these leftover bits with warm water.
I think this mask left my face feeling softer than it usually is. However, I didn’t really notice any other improvement. On the back of the sachet it says the mask lifts away dead skin cells and impurities. Whilst I’m not saying the mask didn’t do that, I certainly didn’t see or feel a difference in this regard.
I’ve got a few more sachets and I’ll try to use the mask on a weekly basis. But I doubt that a mask as gentle as this one would make much of a difference. However, if my skin looks much better in a month or so, I’ll definitely report back.
Would I recommend this face mask? Yes and no. If you want a powerful mask that helps with skin impurities, keep looking because this isn’t it – and you’re probably better off with a mud mask anyway. But if you want a gentle and refreshing face mask that softens your skin and makes you feel pampered, this inexpensive mask is definitely worth a try.
Superdrug’s Fruit Sorbet Antioxidant Peel-Off Mask is usually 99p in store – but for some reason it’s only 49p on Superdrug’s web site. In addition, Superdrug runs 3 for 2 promotions on face masks very frequently, so you can get yourself 3 sachets of this face mask for under £1! Fingers crossed they won’t increase the price! 😉
