Yay, a genuine post! Today, or perhaps I should say tonight(?), I am bringing you a review of the Superdrug Anti-Ageing Moisture Mask.

Rejuvenate your skin with this Superdrug Anti-Ageing Moisture Mask which contains anti-oxidant rich Raspberries, Blueberries,, Cranberries and Vitamin E to help protect against free radial damage and delay the signs of skin ageing. Specially formulated with pseudocollagen, this mask will lock in moisture and boost hydration levels, leaving skin feeling smoother, firmer and more radiant.

Shoutout to me for copy typing the “they say” section and the ingredients from the packet – no copy and paste job here!
The sudden change of weather has really battered my skin – ouch! I had just got my skin the way I wanted; plump, healthy and bright… and all of a sudden Mother Nature swishes her cape and Britain is as cold as Iceland (both the place and the shop).
Moral of this GIF – it’s FREEZING in England!
During my little face mask obsession, I went a bit crazy and I bought a ton of Superdrug own brand masks. Do not turn your nose up, Superdrug own brand skincare is actually pretty good for the price and it’s won awards.. so nerrr to you, skincare snobs! I chose the Anti-Ageing Moisture Mask as I wanted to give my skin a break from the very rich and heavy Origins Drink Up Intensive.
The mask itself feels like a thick lotion – I expected it to be a solid balm – and upon application it doesn’t sting, burn or tingle. The directions state that you leave this on for 10-15 minutes, but you can generally tell when it’s time to wash off any dregs or remains as your skin will have absorbed most of it. I find that it’s always my cheeks that absorb this the fastest – it just shows how dehydrated they are! The sachet is generous and dependant on the size of your face you can get about 2-3 uses – just remember to seal it up. Don’t try to use the sachet up in one go as you’ll fail miserably; you’ll still have enough for another application and you’ll end up looking like this:
I didn’t take any pictures of the product itself because… a picture of some white stuff on my hand just doesn’t look right, no matter how much I try to make it work. Come on now… you know what I mean… don’t make me say it.
I would definitely recommend this mask as a quick fix for dehydrated skin, and a regular product in a skincare routine for dry skinned types. For 99p, you do not have any reason not to give this a go, especially when other face masks of this variety retail for much more. *stern look at Origins Drink Up Intensive*
