2020 HERE WE ARE! Ready to find the perfect face mask. These masks came to my attention after getting them as a Christmas gift. So I thought I could give them a go and give my honest opinion. Due to the fact that these were gifts I don’t have the price because, well I don’t want to know how much someone spent on me. So I have 3 masks all from the Fresh Mini Marvels Gift Set . I have always been curious to try Fresh skincare products, but the price has always thrown me a bit. No one I know has used the products so I didn’t really know whether they were worth the money or not. These are available at Sephora if you want to take a look.
FRESH – Rose Face Mask
This was the first mask that I had tried out. The Rose Face Mask “Is infused with real rose petals and hydrates and tones”. First of all I love the smell of rose I find its usually a scent that translates well to skin care products (obviously with some exceptions), but it is a pleasant scent and always makes you feel refreshed afterwards. So what you do with this mask is apply it to your freshly cleansed damp skin and leave on for 5-10 minutes then rinses off. This mask is more of a gel texture which isn’t to bad when it comes to applying it to the skin. With it on it stays on the skin and because it has a slight yellow tone you do look a bit jaundice but don’t worry it doesn’t stain the skin.
While wearing the mask it did make my face feel a bit warm after a while, it wasn’t uncomfortable at all. When I removed the mask my skin was a little red but it faded really quickly and my skin felt smooth, refreshed and over all it looked a lot better. It was a great mask to use before I put my make up on, it sat beautifully. This was a great mask, it hydrated my skin and made it look a lot brighter. The fact that its that gentle for your skin and you can use it pretty much everyday is a bonus.
FRESH – Sugar Face Polish
Oh! This smelt so good I wanted to eat it! ” A 2 in 1 face mask and scrub the refines, buffs and hydrates with real brown sugar and strawberry seeds for smooth, radiant skin”. This mask caught me by surprise, I always get a little worried when using something like this on my skin from the fear it would dry it out. But using it daily in the shower after washing my face it just adds that little extra freshness to my skin. Just simply apply it to damp skin massage then leave it for a few minutes (while you wash the rest of your body) then rinse. I don’t use this everyday but maybe every second or third day – partly because I’m lazy. I feel like this mask refreshes and hydrates my skin and it does almost make me feel like I don’t have to use moisturiser after using it (of course I still do). I found this mask was great for days I wore sunscreen or makeup because it along with my face wash helped stop me from breaking out and add that little extra clean skin after.
FRESH – Umbrian Clay Purifying Face Mask
The final mask of the kit. Now I kept this last for a reason, because when I opened it the smell didn’t really smell ummm inviting. It didn’t make me want to put it on my face. It kind of reminded me of paint and something else I couldn’t quite figure out. After having the person who gave me the gift inspect it and confirm that it was perfectly fine to use I went on with trying it out. Saying that though me masks scent its over powerful that its unpleasant to use, it was just a funky smell. So this mask “A mineral-rich clay mask for all skin types that deeply cleanses and minimises pores and shine without over-drying or clogging pores”. Sounds like my skins getting a make over.
Putting it on, it wasn’t too messy to apply obviously I applied with my hands but it was easy to wash off. I did this at night after cleaning my face, applied it to dry skin and left it for 5 minutes. After I washed it off I dint see a drastic change in my skins appearance. It felt super clean, not to bad. The next morning, I woke up and my skin looked AMAZING. I had a few spots (yay hormones!) on my face and they had lost their redness and reduced significantly in appearance I didn’t feel like I needed to wear makeup to make me look a bit more presentable – and less like a crack whore. I had found it my holy grail! I did find out afterwards that I can use this mask for spot treatment. So when a pesky zit pops up I can just blob a dot on top of it, leave it for 5 minutes and wash it off to reduce the redness and size.
All of these masks I found were great in their own little way. It does re-asure me that if I buy the full sized pots I won’t be wasting my money. I will say the clay mask is my favourite for removing impurities in my skin so I will be definitely be buying that again. It will come in handy for those times my skin is starting to turn to trash.
