I’ve given the Double Glow Masque Peel a shot from the trio of new masks from Vichy and really like it – each one addresses a different skin issue. I used Double Glow Masque Peel in the morning – it’s indicated as you might imagine for dull skin that needs a bit of a peely-type pep: this contains fruit enzymes to get rid of dead cells coming between you and a glow as well as volcanic rock as a physical exfoliant. The physical aspect is very, very mild – at one point, I was questioning whether I could feel any exfoliating material at all. I wasn’t expecting boulders, but I think I would have expected a bit more evidence that the rock is in there! Nonetheless, my skin did look brighter, but the real effect was when I came to add skin care and then make up – which both glided onto my newly smoothed skin. It’s staying right by my bedside and I’ll be using it again – definitely a morning mask for me, this one. I just don’t see the point of a really good exfoliation if you’re just going to sleep on the glow.
I’ve yet to try the other two: Purifying Clay Mask and Quenching Mineral Mask, but unless you have very oily skin, I’d opt for Quenching (with Vitamin B3 and Vichy Mineral Water) or Double Glow. I have done a back-of-the-hand try out with Quenching – so cool and light, so if you have skin that gets hot and bothered, I’d definitely recommend and do keep it in the fridge for some extra chill.
The new Vichy Face Masks are £14 each which seems extremely reasonable to me – they do have a premium feel to them, I loved using Double Glow and with masks such a strong trend at the moment, they’re right on time. They’re HERE at Escentual if you want a skin treat that won’t break the bank. (There’s 20% off all skin care on Escentual at the moment.)
