First thing to know about these masks is that they require 30-40 minutes of your time. The second thing to know is that it’s time well spent. I really felt like I was taking one for the team investing 40 minutes of time with a cold and clammy solid gel on my face, but if you’re prepared to put the effort in, the results are good. I love the packaging of these with that Tate Modern-worthy space doll face.
I used the blue Hydration Lover Mask because my skin is definitely lacking hydration since being unwell. The mask packaging has a little tub of ‘serum’ which feels and looks more like a milk jelly than anything. You massage that into your skin and then apply the the ‘rubber’ sections over the top. My mask came in two pieces. You do need to take care of the ‘rubber’ part – it rips quite easily and it’s slippy as hell – trying to separate it from its protective plastic sheets was like trying to hold a jelly still!
It feels wet but beautifully cooling on the skin (it contains aloe as well as glycerin and jojoba). There is no getting past the fact that you will feel that the Alien burst forth and settled on your face but I expected it to be worse!
The results were spectacular in terms of hydration. My skin felt a hundred times more moisturized and it also felt cool and soft. Based on my results, I’d say this is £10 (HERE) nicely spent for a skin treat and a fun – if unweildy – mask that works.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
I’m pleased to see Dr Jart back again (it’s at Selfridges). I’ve got a couple more products to tell you about over the next day or so.
