Skincare | Five Facemasks

I don’t know about you but I have been upping my masking lately and I thought today I would take the chance to talk about some facemasks in my rotation - the skincare kind that is! Three of these are constant, repurchased favourites and two are new to my collection over the last month!


facemark review origins dermalogica summer Fridays


First up, my Origins mask trinity – I have lost count of how many tubes of each of these I have went through at this stage. They are my go to when my skin needs help with texture, breakouts and hydration. The Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask is a Holy Grail product for me, it’s cooling, soothing and hydrating but doesn’t feel greasy at all. Every morning after I use this, my skin feels so plump, soft and moisturised, I love it!

When I’m having issues with texture on my skin I always go back to the Original Skin Retexturizing mask with rose clay. It’s a dual clay mask and exfoliator that my oily/combo skin really agrees with! The rose clay feels gentle and the jojoba beads do a great job of exfoliating my skin leaving it smooth, supple and clear.

The Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask rounds off this trio – it contains bamboo charcoal and white china clay and is one I like to use when I am breaking out as it’s calming and helps with oil control while drawing clogged pores to the surface. These three masks are £22 each for 75ml but it is worth shopping around for a discount or a gift with purchase to get the most for your money!

A mask I’ve had for a while but only opened recently is the Summer Fridays R + R mask which I received in a GWP. This brand is super hyped and an Instagram favourite but this is the only product of theirs I have tried and I don’t know, it’s just left me feeling a bit meh especially for the price! The mask is filled with oils to hydrate and soothe skin as well as flower powder to exfoliate (which I find quite harsh) and is lightly rose scented. I leave it on for about 10 minutes then use a damp wash cloth to remove but rub in any excess oil leftover. I just feel a bit underwhelmed with it overall especially when its £46 for 64g!

Lastly, the Dermalogica Hydro Masque Exfoliant* also promises hydration and exfoliation but this is one I can actually feel working! It contains snow mushroom for hydration and bamboo to exfoliate as well as cucumber extract (which it smells like) to soothe and I love it! I’ve included a picture of the texture so you can see the spheres which are filled with the bamboo powder and you move these over your face to wherever you feel needs exfoliating (for me it’s my forehead, nose and chin) and they burst to release the powder (it feels like an even more finely milled version of the daily microfoliant)! You only need to leave it on for 5 minutes to feel instantly refreshed, hydrated and exfoliated!

I also need to take a minute to mention the packaging as it’s so innovative! Instead of squeezing the tube you push the soft top down and it dispenses the perfect amount of product! You can also see how much product is left down the side which brings me to my only negative – it’s £55 for 50ml. Even though it’s only recommended for use 1-2 times per week I do think this is steep and which it was at a lower price point!

Have you tried any of these masks? Let me know your favourites in the comments!
