Step masks, so called because they’re a three or more stage event, aren’t new exactly, but there’s a surge of interest in these, purely I think for the curiosity value. So the ones in the main picture are the Holika Holika Pig Nose mask for blackheads across the nose area, and the second one is the Holika Holika Golden Monkey Glamour Lip. Oh, these names!
So, I haven’t used the Pig Nose mask yet, but I can take you through the stages of the Golden Monkey mask. The first lip shape is an exfoliator, in a similar vein to Ginvera Marvel Gel that leaves ‘bits’ behind which you have to wipe away as you then manually exfoliate after leaving the shape to work for a while. The second is more of a gel like hydrating mask – it’s very wet and slippy – and you leave it on for a few minutes. The last stage is a very hydrating, honey infused oil that’s absolutely lovely. I’d like a whole pot of that!
The thing about mouth masks is that the moment they’re on you can’t eat, drink or speak – and what do you find yourself wanting to do most? Any of those things! But, it genuinely did give my lips a really good makeover in terms of smoothness and softness – they looked visibly better. So, if you can bear it, definitely worth a shot. It’s £8.50 HERE.
