This is one of those ‘can I be bothered?’ products where the thought of measuring, mixing and smearing it all over your face is a little bit off-putting. But, let me just say, you SHOULD be bothered.. it’s absolutely brilliant. The colour is horrible, the rubberized texture is weird but the result is completely lovely. My skin looked like one of those beauty-light cameras had flashed me – smoothed, softened and definitely younger. The effect lasted the day visually, but even a couple of days on my complexion was still feeling the benefits in terms of flexibility, smoothness and hydration.

No wonder really, when you realise that the mask is based on one of Sarah’s professional treatments. My skin loves hyaluronic and argan oil, and there is plenty in the mask, along with Argatensyl (a natural line smoother), Moroccan lava clay and brown sea algae (hence the dubious shade, I guess). 

After you’ve mixed, shaken (a container is provided) and applied you leave the mask on for a good ten minutes and in theory pull away the solidified mask all in one go. That didn’t quite happen for me with a few stray bits to pick off, but it’s totally worth the bother especially if you have a do to go to…I’d use it again in a heartbeat.
