If like me you are a lover of a great find at the drugstore them I’m sure you’ll have spent many an hour perusing the aisles of one very famous drugstore. As the sounds of fireworks chimed in 2014 so did the 50 years of Superdrug. In which we (OK me) celebrate very much and in true spirit I had no other choice but to take Superdrug up on a few more offers and picked up this Fruit Sorbet Peel Off face mask. I was totally pulled in by the packaging as the black & white stood out from the brightly coloured products on the shelves. Anything a bit retro and I’m all too easily swayed. I had to get in on a little bit of the 50 years of Superdrug. I didn’t really need a new mascara with the Max Factor one wrapped specially or in need of a pink glittery Barry M varnish however cute it was.
For a long time I’ve stayed away from the single sachet peel off face masks as I’ve never seen good results from them. They always have too much product in them the same 10 ml irrelevant of whether you could cover your face twice. In this case why don’t they seal a line down the middle and make it into two? I’d be more inclined to repurchase the peel ones if they did. Due to me being a bit of a waste not want not I used the lot.
Was It Any Good?
My first thought after applying it like that was to wonder how many hours will it take to dry! The second was the very unusual smell in had. At first sniff it’s fruit but because of the alcohol content so that it dried the layer out it also smells like a berry flavoured cider. It’s even stranger when you sniff this while it’s on your face. That being said it didn’t take hours but the full 20 minutes it suggests is best to wait out till this point to start peeling. It came off in large sections unlike some where your finding bits still stuck on for the rest of night. I was shocked because when I did get it off my face didn’t feel striped even though my skin gets very dry normally, if anything it felt softer. The big interesting thing for me was the next day at least 3 spots had come to the surface of my skin. Not a great look if your going out but I get spots where they sit under the skin and never come up properly so I can’t do anything about it. This brought the ickyness (spots) to the surface and meant I could treat them. Luckily I was going anywhere so I popped some Origins Spot Remover on and let the healing begin.
This may not be what most girls are looking for but necessary evils and all it at least worked and actually did something for a change. These sachet masks are 99p each but usually on some kind of deal. A s for the awful photo below this was the best of the bunch just having one of those days, it may not be pretty when it’s on but who cares…
You can still get some of the 50 Years of Superdrug products in store so go and have a little celebration. The Fruit Sorbet is still available online at Superdrug.
