Officially, mask pods are a thing. I think we will see a lot of brands following in the footsteps of Origins and Nugg with individual portions of masks rather than the full tube or packet. Sheet masks, or course, are individually wrapped so it makes sense to offer singles the ordinary mask category. Financially, it doesn’t really work out, but convenience – obviously, much more portable and just rather cute! I like the idea of a bank of individual masks – I couldn’t afford to have every mask in full size at my disposal, but the notion of having a choice of masks is appealing.
The Nugg Face Masks selection contains an Exfoliating Mask (cranberry and jojoba), a Deep Cleaning Mask (cucumber and jojoba), a Hydrating Mask (Camellia seed oil and Spirulina extract) and a Soothing Mask (shea butter and chamomile). With most masks, you don’t actually need as much as you think (Fresh, for example, recommend a paper thin covering) and if you’re prepared to believe that your face doesn’t need to be hanging with product for it to work, then I think you could get two masks from each 10ml portion.
I’ve tried the soothing mask – the consistency isn’t too thick; it’s more of a nourishing, rich gel-like feel and I have to say, it did feel very soothing on my skin. Afterwards, my complexion felt hydrated and supple which is what I’d hope for; any signs of dryness were gone, so while I have yet to try the others, my initial impression is that the Nugg masks have more than lived up to expectation. The irony is, that I find myself wanting it full size!
