I am a simple kinda girl when it comes to face masks (or maybe just generally?!) – although I have tons of sheet masks, I realised I didn’t really use them because you have to stay pretty still when wearing them…and I’m not so good at that!
So have been using more wash off masks when I have the time for a pamper. The quicker and more efficient a mask is the better. A recent purchase is this Holika Holika Premium Sheep Milk Yoghurt mask with Wild Berry!
I have a huge soft spot for creamy type masks – the truth is my skin is very sensitive and the wrong mask can still send it doo-laly for weeks. Creamy ones I tend to have a bit more luck with.
Holika Holika is fast becoming a really strong Korean make up and Skincare brand – they’re pretty creative with their new releases. Sometimes though there are SO many new products that I wonder how much care and time has been spent developing them, are if they’re just being churned out in pretty bottles.
This version is a wash off type (although my skin sucked a lot of it up), has lots of vitamins and lactic acid to make the skin soft (apparently). It can be left on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing off.
There is also a Green Tea version of this mask for combination skins.
This mask is very much like a face cream in texture:
It’s very light, ladies with dry skin like me may want to be more generous on it on the driest areas as it will sink in fast.
I’ve used this a few times and I like it – no allergies apart from a tiny bit of itching on the cheek (trust me, I get this with a lot of products) it gives me a good moisture boost when I need it and my skin feels more ‘bouncy’ however – I wouldn’t say it left my skin brighter or amazingly different from normal. I can’t say it’s a miracle mask but it does sort out some dry patches temporarily.
I purchased this from eBay for around £10.
