Well hello there everyone! Hope you've had a lovely week. Today I am back with another Face Mask Friday review on the Superdrug Apricot Exfoliating Face Mask (^____^)
My skin has been going from one extreme to the other lately, and these past two weeks it has been really dry and *shudders* flakey in patches too. I didn't know what was up with it, so I decided to pick this out from my little stash of face masks and give it a whirl to see if it would do anything for me.
I've never actually come across a face mask that is an exfoliator aswell, which is one of the reasons I picked it up in the first place. Another reason was that I'm a sucker for apricot anything lol.. (>.<)
'With Superdrug's Apricot Exfoliating Mask that's a wonderful mix of crushed walnut shell and apricot seeds that gently removes dead skin cells to reveal a smoother brighter complexion.'
It's texture is light and fluffy (almost foamy) and the crushed walnut shell and apricot seeds are the perfect size and have the right amount of.. not sure what the term is.. sharpness(?) to it. The mask wasn't gritty, but it wasn't too soft either, in fact it was the perfect consistency!
'Delicately blended with nourishing Apricot Kernel Oil and moisturising Aloe Vera, this leaves skin feeling luxuriously soft and silky.'
I have to say that I am really impressed with this. the mask part was very moisturising, and the crushed walnut cells and apricot seeds provided literally the most perfect exfoliation! I'm not going to lie I absolutely LOVED IT! It seriously wasn't harsh at all, I could actually feel my skin getting softer and the dead skin cells being sloughed off as I rubbed it gently across my dry patches.
And to top it all off it smelt divine. Even better than the St Ives Apricot Scrubs, and that is saying something because I am obsessed with that smell (*_____*) From the 15ml you get in this packet, you can actually get a good two uses out of this, which is pretty good!
Bottom line is, I'd recommend this wholeheartedly. It's definitely something I'm going to repurchase next time, but probably after I finish my St Ives scrubs (I have two bottles left) - after that I don't think I will even get another St Ive's scrub.. *shock, horror* I know right? A shops own brand over a well known one?! I must be going doolally. :P
You can get this for just 99p over at Superdrug, and they tend to do a lot of 4 for the price of 3 deals on their masks too, so it's definitely worth checking out next time you're in Superdrug ^^ Have you tried this before? Or any of Superdrugs own range masks?
