In June I visited the lovely Catherine and Ciara over at Biofresh Skincare where I received a beautiful facial and bought some wonderful skincare products. You can read all about it here. One particular product that really stood out to me and the first product in a long time were I scrapped every last ounce of residue out of, was a facemask called hydro mask. I’m proud to admit it even sat in the premium location of my beside table. Now all that occupies its space is an empty bottle awaiting disposal. I am happy to say this now empty bottle successfully fulfilled its skin hydrating and repairing destiny. Now I can hear the faint hum of its brothers and sisters calling, “buy me Avril, buy me”.
This “skin saviour” product is a hydrating facemask specifically recommended for use on dry or damaged skin. It costs €38 which is a little expensive but in my opinion is well worth the spend. It is produced in Bulgaria by Biotrade cosmeceuticals. I had never heard of this brand before and I think Biofresh may be the sole distributors of it in Ireland. I could be wrong though and would need to double-check. The mask itself has a thick gel like consistency that is white/opaque in colour. To me it smells like almonds, not overpowering and definitely not perfumed. As my skin suffers from dehydration and dryness in certain areas, I applied this mask religiously (about three times a week) as part of my night-time skincare regime. It is both cooling and soothing and absorbs into the skin beautifully. It leaves a lovely silky soft texture to the skin.
I have a bit of a soft spot for face masks. I just love how thick and luxurious they can feel, a real treat for the skin. I especially love the masks that you apply to your skin at night-time and wake up to radiant glowing skin in the morning. I loved everything about this particular mask and will definitely be repurchasing it. It produces a lovely dewy glow to the skin and my skin absolutely drank it up. It feels beautiful on, is extremely gentle, especially on sensitive skin (I can vouch for that) and is recommended for use after facial peels or laser treatment as it aids in recovery. The active ingredients in the mask are D-Panthenol (provitamin B5), Vitamin A and Vitamin E. All of which are fantastic for reducing inflammation, increasing blood flow, protecting and hydrating the skin. It is also pH balanced.
