No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask

Friday, 15 May 2015


I have become quite obsessed with No7 products since getting the cleansing set for Christmas. Everytime I go onto the Boots website, I find a ton of things I would love to try. They have so many products that sound incredible. 
No7 is an amazing brand - not only do they cater to every skin type but they have colour coordinated the packaging to what skin type it's meant for: 
  •  Dry/Very Dry has lilac packaging
  • Normal/Dry has pink packaging
  • Normal/Oily has green packaging
It makes it so easy to find products that would work for you skin type. I not so recently picked up the No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask  as the cold weather was taking its toll on my skin. I'm not usually one for masks, I don't really like how messy they can be & how stiff it becomes when dry. Although, making facial expressions to crack the mask will always amuse me. The Hydration Mask is in a league of it's own. There is no messy application & because it gets absorbed into the skin, it doesn't leave my face feeling uncomfortably tight.

The No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask comes in a clear bottle & has a pump so you can dispense the right amount of product. I love that the mask has a swirled whipped cream look to it. It was very much a "Oooh, what's that?" moment when I saw it. It's magical.

The lady who works at the No7 counter in my local Boots recommended that I use the mask once a fortnight as I have dry skin but occasionally get days where it's more combination. It is created to help your dry skin behave like normal skin & if I use it more frequently, it could tip the scales so I would end up with more oily skin instead of balancing it out. I like to use it just after I have cleansed my skin - I pump a small amount onto the back of my hand & dot it around my face. I usually focus on the driest areas & apply what's left to the rest of my face. You can leave it on for 3-10 minutes depending on how intense you want the hydration boost to be. I change how long I leave it on for depending on how my skin is feeling that day. The drier & more uncomfortable my skin feels the longer I leave it on. I have also used this as an overnight mask. I apply it as normal & then as soon as I wake up, I splash water over my face. I only do this when I'm being super lazy my skin needs an extra moisture boost.

The mask comes out white but when when massaged into the skin, it turns clear. So, you don't have to worry about giving the postman/woman a fright when you open the door... [I've done that on more than one occasion. Oops] It has a creamy gel like formula that has a luxuriously silky feel to it. After I have rinsed it off with warm water, my skin is not only left feeling hydrated & beautifully soft but it just makes my skin look so healthy & radiant.What I like most about the mask is that it doesn't just temporarily give your skin a moisture boost like other masks do. It has long lasting effects, my skin is still dry but it feels & looks so much better. No more slathering a ridiculous amount of moisturiser on because it feels so uncomfortable.

The mask has worked wonders for my dry skin, even my boyfriend has noticed that my skin is softer. I also find that my makeup applies & looks so much better. It is amazing now but I know when Winter comes around in all it's freezing cold glory, it's going to be a life saver for my skin. I honestly can't fault this mask one bit! It's just so amazing! I definitely recommend trying it out if you have dry/very dry skin or if you know someone with that skin type, tell them about it right now. Go! What are you waiting for? You/your loved ones need this in your/their life. It's like a unicorn but in skincare product form. Magical, glorious & very pretty.

p.s No7 can be a little pricey but Boots always have amazing offers on & when the No7 vouchers come around, you can save quite a bit. Even without the boots offers or the money off vouchers, in my opinion their products are very much worth every single penny & I may be a little obsessed. My bank account is crying because I may or may not have a massive wishlist of just No7 products.

Are you a fan of No7? Have you tried this mask? I would love to know your thoughts.
