Review: My Skin Skin Deep Cleansing Mask
I have been using this little beauty regularly for the last few months and it's high time I declared my feelings for it...
My Skin Skin Deep Cleansing Mask retails for around the £2-£2.50 mark in Tesco but they do occasionally have the line on offer, I picked this up for around £1.50.
They say... '...gently targets pores to remove the build up of daily dirt in your skin. Honey helps draw out the skins impurities whilst also moisturising. Strawberry extract helps control blemishes. Cimicifuga extract helps control excess oil and shine.' There is not a suggested frequency to use this but it does say to apply to damp face and neck, leave for 5-10 minutes then rise with warm water.
Although this range is aimed at teenage skin I do suffer from an oily/combination complexion, with an oily t-zone year round and the occasional spot. I wanted a mask that would remove the excess grime and oil from my face but not go a step too far and make it feel dry and tight and so far this has been fitting the bill. It doesn't feel like its improving the condition of my skin while its on but it does feel smoother and less oily after, though these effects don't last long. I'm sure that there are better masks out there that would feel like they are being of more benefit to my skin and provide long-term effects but it does as it says and at £2 for 75ml you can't go wrong for a quick fix.
I haven't used any other products from the My Skin line and as I'm not a teenager any more and my skin is likely to get drier as it gets colder (boo!) I'm not sure I will, but if you have oily skin giving you hassle they might be worth a go.....
