Face masks are a rare purchase for me, mostly because I just don’t factor them in very well to my routine, and I never leave myself enough time.
More recently though, through the luck of receiving beauty box samples, I’ve had a few to test out, so have been keeping them within my eyeliner, and slathering them on while a dry my hair, or paint my nails. I will admit that my skin has seen an improvement in using them, especially on the moisture front, so I decided to pick up a tube of something.
The NSpa Replenishing Moisture Mask aims to do exactly that…replenish moisture. It contains a blend of sweet almond oil and essential neroli oil to help rehydrate and restore, as well as ginseng and good ol’ vitamin E to help calm and soften skin.
It’s a cream based mask, which you apply to your face and neck in a thin layer. It’s quite light in consistency, so don’t be surprised if it sinks in quickly, it’s not like a conventional mask that you’re going to be able to see sitting right on top of your skin. This also means less fuss and mess when trying to remove it after the 10-20 minute guideline sitting time. It says to remove either using cotton pads soaked in warm water, or a toning mist, however I’ve take mine off using a flannel and a muslin cloth and both have been fine, especially if you like a little bit of exfoliation too. NSpa advise to use 2-3 times a week to see optimum results.
So, has it helped? In short yes, it’s a nice moisturising, easy to apply, budget friendly mask.
Is it the most nourishing one I’ve used? No, however if you’re looking for something quick and easy to include in your skincare routine a few times a week as a bit of a pick me up, I would highly recommend it. It’s helped to even out the dryness on my face and I’ve had no breakouts from it.
The matte white packaging is really lovely, as with all the NSpa products, it just looks, and smells more expensive that it actually is! You can find the whole range of NSpa goodies at your local Asda stores, or online here.
