When I was emailed to see if I wanted to review a product called 'The Incredible Face Mask'* from MayBeauty, I didn't hesitate to say yes - it's a winner of a name. I love a face mask and am always up for trying a new one so was excited to give this one a go. I received the test package which comes with five face masks, a brush and The Incredible Skin Guide (a booklet with info on using the mask, and how to get great skin/help with acne).
The Incredible Face Mask claims to remove blackheads and dead skin in minutes. The main ingredient is deep sea mud and the mask is black, with a thick, almost gloopy consistency - it's not like anything I've tried before and I think the best way to apply is by using the brush that comes with the test package. It can be a bit messy but luckily comes off super easily (I made a bit of a mess around the sink, haha).
Once applied you leave for 30-45 minutes and then peel off. I was a bit worried at first that leaving it on for so long would agitate my skin (as I suffer with rosacea) but it was absolutely fine. The worst part for me is peeling off the mask - as with any peel off mask it just hurts when you peel it! We had a comedy moment today as Chris had to do it for me.
So the results - after using it my skin does feel very smooth, soft and looks a lot clearer. Chris has even commented on it. I've used it twice now and have been really impressed. I can't comment on how it might help on a long-term basis (they recommend using the mask twice a week) but initial signs look good!
You can buy the test package for £19, and I have also been given a 30% off discount which would make the cost only £13.30 (pretty good, ey) - simply buy through the link here
