Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask that I picked up for £4 – Super Facialist By Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Intense Moisture Mask.
This mask is aimed at people with dry or sensitive skin. And it promises to boost skin moisture levels and radiance.
The mask contains white willow extract, vitamin E, urea and marshmallow extract (!). And apparently these ingredients have hydrating, calming and replenishing properties.
How does it work? You’re supposed to apply the mask to your face and neck after cleansing and leave it on for 5 minutes. Then rinse with warm water. Done!
Is the mask any good? Yes and no. If I stick to the instructions, the mask leaves a residue on my face. It’s awful. I have to admit that it makes my skin feel soft to the touch, but it feels fake and the residue seems to dry out my skin.
However, I’ve been experimenting with the product, and I found a way to make it work for me. 🙂 I apply the mask first thing in the morning (usually on a Sunday), and I leave it on for 30 minutes. Then I follow with my regular morning routine, which means that I wash my face with a foaming cleanser and a sponge.
The result is… properly cleansed skin that feels sensationally soft. Whilst I wouldn’t say that the mask makes my skin feel more hydrated, I’ve noticed that the products that I apply afterwards seem to be absorbed faster and better than usual. And that’s actually quite awesome! 🙂
All in all, I’m happy that I found a way to make the mask work for me. If you’re interested, Super Facialist By Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Intense Moisture Mask is available as 125ml for £4 (TK Maxx).

Hi there! I’ve got another face mask review for you today. 🙂
It’s about the Super Facialist By Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask that I picked up a little while ago.
I think it’s quite obvious what the mask promises to do. However, I’ll summarise things anyway. So… this mask contains salicylic acid and Dead Sea mud – 2 ingredients known for their oil-absorbing and skin-purifying properties.
In addition, this mask contains acacia honey and vitamins A, D and E which rebalance the skin.
All in all, this mask promises clearer and fresher looking skin. This sounds great!
Does it work? Yes! This mask is really powerful! When I used the mask for the first time, I could tell that it would be awesome. The mask felt cool and slightly tingly – and it was pleasant. It wasn’t “too much” and it didn’t feel scary. It just felt good!
And the results were quite impressive as well. This mask made my skin look and feel clearer and more even, it made my pores look smaller, and my complexion looked brighter as well. So yes, this mask does what it says on the tube!
I would recommend this face mask to everyone who’s looking for a clear skin product that really works. The Super Facialist By Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask is available as 125ml for £9.99 (Boots). I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).
Have you tried this mask? Or would you like to try it? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!
Oh, and by the way, face mask week is officially over. I’m back tomorrow with a skin care review. 🙂
