Guerlain Super Aqua-Mask Instant Skin Reviver
[unpaid/sample/ad/affiliate] We are properly in ‘treat’ territory here at £84 for a pack of six masks but these are not so much your daily dose of hydration but more of a weekly or fortnightly booster.
Generally, I’m not a fan of sheet mask – I hate the feel of them so the return needs to be worth it. These, I feel, are a little different environmentally speaking than the big boxes and packs of daily sheet masks which are madly wasteful. A couple of times a month doesn’t seem nearly the same drain (and truth be told, I quite often re-use by popping back in the pack and storing for a couple of days in the fridge – there is plenty enough liquid – and take out an hour or so before use). What I like about the Super-Aquas is that they feel so soothing and skin drenching. I have found that with some sheet masks, where, like this one, you’re required to massage in liquid when the sheet is off, my skin doesn’t feel nearly as moisturised as I am expecting it to. The liquid evaporation can actually feel dehydrating rather than hydrating. That’s not the case here.
‘Reviver’ feels like the right description for this blend of soothers but it’s not ‘natural’ by any means. It does contain cica and mallow as well as skin conditioning fatty acids. If you don’t like a sheet mask, there is a ‘solid’ version of this whose ingredients differ slightly (the solid version favours birch extract as a main ingredient). Expect your complexion to feel soothed, saturated with moisture and perked up but do tuck your hair into a turban before you use unless you don’t mind soaked strands. You can find the masks HERE, non affiliate HERE.
