Super Facialist masks and facial oil review


I'd just purchased a new Super Facialist Neroli facial oil when I received two masks from the range to try out, so I thought I'd share my thoughts on all of them at once.  I've tried products from the Neroli Firming range before and really liked them, so I was keen to try the lifting treatment mask.  The Rose hydrate range is new to me, but I liked the sound of the intense moisture mask as I have been getting dry patches of skin during the winter months.

The Neroli firming facial oil has become one of my favourite skincare products since I first tried it last year.  I've already reviewed it here - I love the smell of this product and it feels so luxurious to use - like a mini facial - and it makes even waterproof eye makeup slide off.

I've used the *Rose Hydrate intense moisture mask a couple of times now.  It's not as intensely moisturising as the Origins overnight mask I've been using, but for a mask that you only need to leave on for five minutes and at half the price, it does a very good job.  It's a thick creamy mask that you apply onto cleansed skin and leave for five minutes or more before washing it off.  I've found that if I leave this on a bit longer my skin starts to soak the mask up in drier areas, so I've been using it in the bath and leaving it on for 20 minutes or so.  The one thing I found a bit strange about this mask is that it doesn't have a completely smooth texture - it's a bit grainy - like a very gentle exfoliator.  I'm not sure why that is, and it hasn't affected me using the mask, but I thought I'd mention it as it's not something I expected from the product.

My skin's been extra spoiled lately as I've also been using the *Neroli firming lifting treatment mask.  This is from the same range as the facial oil, so it has the same beautiful and luxurious neroli scent.  Seriously, any product that has neroli in it I seem to fall in love with.  If you like the scent as much as me it makes this mask a real pleasure to use.  It's a gel type mask that leaves a clear layer over the skin while you use it.  You leave this one on for a bit longer - 10 - 15 minutes - but I usually leave any mask on for at least that long anyway.  After using this my skin has a taughtness about it - the mask gives an instant but temporary firming effect, although we increased use some of that firming should become more permanent.  I've not tried it yet but you can also use this product as an overnight treatment by applying a thin layer under your nighttime moisturiser for a more intense treatment.

Have you tried Super Facialist?  I'm becoming a big fan.
