This is one of those quick pick ups just because you fancy a treat and want to wind down at the end of a long work week. I’ve had many masks to help with blemishes but rarely thought to try rehydrating ones as it just seemed like a job for my moisturizer. I’ve gone past these many times in Marks & Spenser and I the Apivita range is quite vast. I picked the cucumber one because it’s one of those fresh smells that’s not going to bother me while it’s on. Apivita gives this information:
- Cucumber moisturises, refreshes and rejuvenates parched skin
- Jojoba and avocado oils nourish and hydrate the skin
- Geranium essential oil hydrates and tones the skin
- Free from propylene glycol
- 95% natural ingredients
Apivita Application & Thoughts
When you apply it feels strange as it’s a very gel like feel to it and is almost like applying a moisturizer. The smell is very much cucumber and is very cool on the skin. I don’t usually react to much but this after about 5 minutes started to sting not painfully as such but like when your outside on a really cold windy day like my face was freezing. I’m not sure if this is an on purpose effect but I can honestly say at that point I wasn’t enjoying it or relaxing. When I did remove it there wasn’t any redness or anything I could see as a bad reaction and since I haven’t had any issues.
In the Apivita sachet you get 2 masks and it the interest of seeing if it was just me that day I did the second a few days later and it was the same. I wasn’t too disappointed as they are £3 for 2 and will likely try a different one out in the future . Something I thinks relevant is if you buy the bottle version it’s more expensive per ml but if you only apply masks to certain areas you may get more applications going with the bottle as you may use less than a single sachet worth each time.
