Firstly I would just like to clear something up - putting cucumber on your eyes only works in the movies!! In real life it slides around all over your face and also (and more importantly) temporarily blinds you!
Enough of my inability to be glamourous and girls, onto the actual product. I bought a little sachet of the Sanctuary Deep Cleanse Facial 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask from Boots for around £2 (but it was part of a 3 for 2 deal so it was free!) and what a great buy it was.
I'm pretty slack when it comes to anything above and beyond my daily cleanse, tone and moisturise but this really did feel like such an indulgent spa treat! I don't think I had properly read the front and so when it started to actually feel pretty hot on my face I was a little startled, that soon turned to amazement though, it really does just make your face feel so warm, as though you're sealing the mask on with a hot towel - it was so luxurious!
My face needs all the help it can get so I left the mask on for a lot longer than five minutes (while trying to relax listening to Adele but actually finding myself covered in cucumber and blinded by vegetable slime - I gave up and ate the extra slices) and when I washed it off it was as though I had a whole new face!! I can't explain how soft this leaves your skin feeling, and not only soft but glowing and plumped!
I am 100% getting the full size, and maybe it will be a start of a new and improved facial routine!
What is your favourite mask?
