This is a bit of an unusual topic for me as I don’t really do beauty posts. I do care about my skincare routine but I’m just not into it enough to make it a regular feature of my blog. I had heard lots of things about the Incredible Face Mask from May Beauty, and as someone who has skin that regularly flares up, I really wanted to give it a try.
The facemask is quite a thick gel that you put all over your face, avoiding mouth, eyes and eyebrows – make sure you do as it could pull off your eyebrow hairs! It is quite cool on your skin and starts off really soft and shiny. Then you leave the mask on for at least 30 minutes for it to dry out fully. I found that it really does get tight on your skin so don’t talk or smile too much or it will crack it too early.
When it is all dry, wriggle your mouth around to loosen it slightly and then pull the mask off. I was mega impressed that it all came off in one go! It does hurt a tiny bit when you pull it off so take it slowly.
I was so impressed (and also a little bit grossed out) by what I saw on the mask when it came off. Dirt and dead skin, even blackheads that it had pulled out! My face felt really fresh and was reassuring to know so much junk was no longer on / in my skin. I was really pleased with it and I would definitely use it again. When I woke up the next day my skin felt really soft too so it has a lasting affect – it hasn’t felt that good for a while.
