The Clarins SOS mask trio is launching in August – perfectly timed for summer skin. I like the reliability of this brand – I might not always like the way that they express themselves but the products generally deliver extremely well, and it’s no different with this new launch. I’ll say ahead that I have only trialed the Refreshing Hydration Mask which is suitable for all skin types, even oily, to deliver a punch of cooling hydration. I don’t often share my personal life but my daughter was involved in a road traffic accident (she got knocked down by a van) so a lot of my time at the moment is spent on medical visits and looking after her so skin care has completely gone out of the window. To slather on a mask was just the nicest thing and it was so refreshing on my neglected skin. It ticked all the boxes in terms of moisturising – thank you hyaluronic acid – and just perking things up.
I like the fact that each mask formula is the same shade as the packaging – it’s just a detail but somehow adds to the enjoyment. The other masks are SOS Pure in a rebalancing formula for oily skin – it has a powdery-balm texture with white and green clay and alpine willow extracts.
Finally, SOS Comfort for very dry skin – you might want to have this handy for when you’ve been outdoors for any length of time and to soothe the tight feeling that can bring if you’ve been in sun or wind. Both together is the perfect storm for sore skin although it’s a permanent condition for some. With wild mango butter and mango oil, which is rich in fatty acids, it’s designed to replenish and restore suppleness.
The masks are £30 each which seems on the hefty side to me for 75ml, but I found with SOS Hydra that I didn’t need a heavy slathering for it to do its work. So, I’d advise using sparingly to see if it’s enough and add more if not.

Just curious as to what you mean about Clarins by “I might not always like the way that they express themselves”?
Thanks again for your excellent work on the blog which I read religiously 🙂

They’re very ‘looking younger’ focussed and I prefer brands to recognise that beauty comes in many forms. And thank you.. yes she is doing okay-ish – it’s very early days though.
Thank goodness your daughter is being looked after, wishing her a speedy recovery. Take care of yourself too, it must be very stressful. We appreciate you still keeping up the blog which gives so much enjoyment to us
All the best
