Despite not loving a wet sheet mask, I don’t mind these rubberized, mix-it-yourself version which are actually quite fun and usually very effective. I’ll say ahead that I haven’t yet used the Masque Bar Gold Magic mask or the Charcoal Magic mask but they’re in the queue because I really want to try them. I’m a convert to these ‘modelling’ masks since using the Dr Dennis Gross (HERE) one and the Dr Jart Shake & Shots at Selfridges HERE and loving the hydrating and softening results from both – I also secretly loved having a blue face temporarily.. excellent selfie opportunity.
So this one will give you a gold face and contains gold particles (which I don’t think will do a single jot of anything for your skin but will look pretty) and it’s indicated for dull skin that needs smoothing and revitalizing. Things like this put the fun back into beauty – it’s easy to get too serious and forget that experience is a big part of the pleasure. I also like how it’s packaged – you mix both sachets into the box they arrive in and mix with the spatula before applying (with the spatula) and leaving on for half an hour. In theory, you should be able to peel the entire thing off whole with the same satisfaction as when you peel an apple in one long, unbroken strip. These haven’t launched yet but do keep an eye out. Masque Bar is owning it on the high street with innovative masks that won’t break the bank – most of their masks come in at under a fiver. The brand is about to break out into more skin care and I have a little lab sample of their forthcoming cleanser below:
It’s a kind of loose gel type cleanser that smells beautifully fresh but other than that, I can’t tell you anything at all about it or even when it’s arriving on shelf. But everyone loves to see a lab sample, right? I can’t think that gold flecks bring anything other than decoration to the party but it certainly looks more exciting than most.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
