Superdrug Cucumber Cooling Mask

I really enjoy using face marks, although most of the time I'm probably guilty of not using them as much as I should do. I find that they are one of the best ways to give your skin an extra treat leaving it feeling clean and soft.  When browsing in Superdrug  last week I was pretty happy to spot Superdrug's huge new range of 99p face marks - After all who doesn't love a bargain!

I wasn't left too impressed by this 'cucumber cooling clay mask' - Don't get me wrong it wasn't the worst face mask I've tried, but it was pretty far from the best. A thing I quite loved about it was the amount of product given in one of these packets - I didn't exactly apply the mask sparingly yet I still got two whole applications out of it (I reckon I could have got three if I was careful!)  I found that the mask was really easy to apply and more importantly it didn't end up everywhere! It was pretty much as comfortable as a clay mask gets when wearing it for the required time (Which I think was about 10 minutes - I already binned the packet like the rubbish blogger I am, Sorry!). But after that is where the problems start. This mask was so stubborn to get off - To the point where in the end I just picked up a flannel and got rid of it both times because I couldn't be bothered with washing my face all night. All of that work honestly didn't seem worth it, my face just felt weird after use. It didn't meet the promises that the 'clay mask will eliminate impurities and sooth skin for a vibrant fresh faced look'' - Although after a while my skin did feel a little softer, once it was past the weird tight feeling stage.  I'm not put off the whole range completely, for 99p I think I'll be giving a few more a try (probably avoiding the clay ones for now).


  1. Will have to pick one of those up! :) xxx

    1. They're worth a try for 99p especially if you find one that works for you x
