Boots Ingredients Luminous Youth Sheet Face Mask With Safflower & Peony

upload-3Hi there! Today I’m reviewing a new face mask – Boots Ingredients Luminous Youth Sheet Face Mask with Safflower & Peony.

Boots says that this mask contains safflower and peony extracts which, apprently, leave skin looking and feeling younger.

In addition, Boots says the mask helps to improve skin tone and texture. This sounds great, doesn’t it?

I’ve tried the mask, and whilst I’m not 100% happy with it, I know I will buy it again.

But before I tell you what’s good, let me start with the things I’m not happy with.

First of all, this mask fits extremely poorly. The eyeholes are huge, the parts that go on the cheeks are too big and too wide, the part that goes on the nose is too short and too small in general… it’s all wrong. It looks like the mask was tailored to fit Stewie Griffin‘s face! I’m well aware that sheet masks can’t fit every face shape, but Montagne Jeunesse did a much better job with their Glacial Spa fabric mask!

Another thing that annoys me quite a bit is the waste of product that comes with sheet masks. Let’s be honest, 20ml of product is quite a lot! And unfortunately most of the actual product gets left behind in the sachet. So whilst I discarded the sheet mask after I’d used it, I resealed the sachet to keep the leftover product fresh – and I used said leftover product, which lasted me for almost a week, as a night cream. Some of you might think this is extreme. However, I think it’s more like not being too wasteful. 😉

Anyway, let’s get to what’s good about this mask! I liked how the mask felt on my face. It was cool (not cold) and actually relaxing. On the back of the sachet it said that the product may cause a tingling sensation – but I haven’t noticed anything out of the ordinary. If this mask had caused a stingling (= stinging and /or tingling) sensation, I would have washed my face right away. But yeah, everything was perfectly fine and nothing bad happened!

What else is good? When I took off the sheet mask, I noticed that my face looked younger. Sure, my complexion looked like always, but the fine lines on my forehead were gone. Pouf – Gone! I still don’t understand how this is even possible – but it happened! Sure, I was tired and about to go to bed, but I took a close look and I know what I saw. OK, the fine-lines-be-gone effect only lasted until I washed my face in the morning, but I was (and still am) very impressed!

I’ve also enjoyed using this mask as a night cream for a few days. The rich formula is just perfect for my dry skin. And in all honesty, I’d be perfectly happy if Boots ditched the sheet mask and sold the actual mask as a face cream or as a leave-on mask instead. I’d buy it!

So all in all, would I recommend this face mask? Absolutely! But please make the most of the product, OK? 🙂

Boots Ingredients Luminous Youth Sheet Face Mask with Safflower & Peony is available for £2.50 at Boots. I got my Ingredients face masks when Boots ran a 2 for £3 promotion. So don’t forget to check for offers before you buy!

  1. Oh poorly fitting masks are so disappointing! I guess they use a “universal” face but I swear some of them would only fit ALIENS. 😮
    But younger looking face WINS – that’s impressive! I totally hear you about companies using whatever serum are in these masks and releasing a bottle version of it! C’mon, listen to us!

  2. i need to mask more often these days, age catching up and being in airconditioned rooms dont help. Plus recently i noticed the Olay moisturiser I have been using for years is making my skin hpyerpigmented, i am freaking out! and have stopped it. hoping it makes a change and back to normal again.

      • i never thought of that – sunscreen – i think i will try it – its been 3 days since i stopped the Olay and my face feels less taunt, using a mask and then spray on Evian water for now. But i will get the sunscreen, thanks!

      • Yes, please do it.

        Try to find a brightening cream with SPF. And try lots of other brightening products – serum, face wash, mask… I hadn’t used brightening products in years – until last summer. I started with a face wash, then a toner, then I had a mask (used once a week) and then I had a brightening night cream… I had great results after just 2 or 3 weeks. 🙂

  3. Lol i love how you said it was made for stewie’s face. I do agree some sheet masks are wasteful with so much leftover product. I never thought of keeping the product to use. That’s actually a pretty good idea.
