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
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.
