Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Simply Pure Leave On Water Mask. This product is fragrance-free, and it promises “lightweight, cooling hydration to uncomfortable and sensitive skin”.
On the back of the tub it says the mask should be applied to cleansed skin. Leave the mask alone for 5 to 10 minutes, then rub in the excess – gently!
I’ve used this mask a couple of times now, so let me tell you what I think. 🙂
When I tried the mask for the first time, I didn’t like it at all. I was sure I’d return it for a refund. Why? Well, this mask has a strong menthol smell. I understand that this is what causes the cooling sensation. But I found it scary. I thought I might have a problem if I get this stuff anywhere near my eyes. So I took extra care when I applied it – and it was fine. No redness, no weird tingling sensations on my face. No issues. After a few times I started to use the mask everywhere on my face – that includes my eyelids and the delicate skin under my eyes – and everything’s 100% fine.
However, the mask (which is pretty much a thick jelly) feels super tacky. If you apply too much product, you won’t be able to rub it into your skin. Once this mask sits on the skin, you can’t do anything with it. So it’s best to apply a reasonable amount in the first place, that way you don’t have to deal with it again. Just leave it alone, and it’ll be fine. 🙂
It took me a few weeks to make peace with this product. Now I’m happy that I didn’t return it. The first few times I found the mask awful, but then I started to appreciate it. Now I actually like it! At the moment I’m using this mask once a week (on stay-at-home days only). I apply it right after my morning shower. I leave the mask alone for a few minutes, and then I apply a normal day moisturiser on top of it. Yes, my face will still feel tacky all day, but I’m being rewarded with incredibly plumped up skin. Great stuff!
Superdrug‘s Simply Pure Leave On Water Mask is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. The 75ml tub is £3.99. Superdrug runs promotions frequently. I paid £2.99 (buy 1 get 2nd half price offer).
