The Most Satisfying Drugstore Face Mask Ever

6.4.17


Is this the queen of drugstore masks?

I LOVE a good face mask! Hit me up with any one that won't bring my out in a tomato rash then I'm all for it. (Yeah, my face turns so red and burns if my skin doesn't agree with a mask. Call me tomato mask girl...) The other day I finished up my 1000th pot of Lush's BB Seaweed face mask, and just before it went out of date as well! Note: if you guys want to try a Lush mask you neeed to go for this one! It's the bomb.

Anywaaayysss, back to the post, I then decided to hunt for a new mask in Boots while also picking up the odd essentials. Mascara, razor blades, deodrant, yada yada. And then I just happened to go to the Sanctuary Spa counter and lo and behold I see a bright yellow tube staring at me.

It was the 5 Minute Radiance Peel-Off mask. You can imagine my excitement to find a drugstore peel off mask after seeing so many posts and videos online about the craze.

(FYI I'm getting bored of masks that you have to wash off because they're soo messy, so of course it went straight in my basket!)

You're reading this post the day after I first used it, so it's going to be a first impressions post. Firstly, it comes out as a transparent gel like liquid - and it smelt quite citrusy and fresh. It wasn't thick enough to completely be a gel, but it wasn't too thin that it won't run off your face as you apply it. The tube said you need less than a normal dry and wash off mask, so that's what I did.

I had a bath and came back to it after 20 minutes - I know it said 5 but you can leave it on for as long as you want to be honest. And it still looked wet but also dry at the same time, but then I reached to peel it off and omg holy guacamole. This mask in a second took me back to the primary school days when you would paint your hand in PVA glue, let it dry and peel it off. IT WAS SO SATISFYING.

The mask peeled off sooo easily and my skin felt really soft and refreshed. Hooray for my skills of evenly applying face masks. After just one use, I really love it and I can't wait to use it again... If you know me and my mask experiences, let's hope together that this £10 beauty won't bring me out in a rash after four uses!

Have you guys tried a peel off mask before?

    1. You literally do! I'm so happy I can just pick it up from Boots if I ever need a top up... I probably will only use this one now if I don't have a reaction in the future! xx
