When your favourite high-end beauty brand branches out and launches a new range of face masks, you know you just have to try them. Cue my delight when overdue with Willow and a little package popped through my letter box, including a trial size of each of the new masks Bobbi Brown have on offer. Of course when you have a newborn, beauty regimes go right out of the window and as I mentioned in my review of the Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist, I'm really upping my skincare game again after all but forgetting skincare existed in Willow's first few weeks, so this little trio has definitely come in handy.
Tried, tested, it's time to share my thoughts on these little tubes of skincare goodness.
With a purifying formula, the Instant Detox Mask is great for doing the nitty-gritty work that you're cleanser just can't manage. It provides a deep cleanse and helps to shift those pesky impurities, pollutants and excess oil which can clog pores and leave skin looking a tad lack-lustre. The main ingredients are Hawaiian Sea Water and Amazonian White Clay, which is mineral-rich, which work alongside one another to get rid of toxins and impurities in skin. Team that with detoxifying Sea Salt and Sea Water, it manages to remove excess sebum without stripping your skin of the good stuff.
Although it's hard-working on getting rid of all the muck, it's fairly gentle on skin and leaves a lovely healthy look to skin. Perfect after a long weekend and great one for using once a week to ensure you keep skin in tip-top condition. It's especially great for busy mamas like me, as you only need to leave it on for 2-5 minutes for it to work it's magic! I love following this one up with a deliciously silky serum and a hydrating overnight moisturiser.
Bobbi Brown Radiance Boost Mask, 75ml £33
If you're skin is still in winter mode and looking a little less healthy than usual, this could be your dream mask. Working to exfoliate skin, gently re-texturising and smoothing by removed dead skin cells with Kaolin Clay whilst Algae Extract and Sodium Hyaluronate moisturise and reduce excess oil. It keeps in the important moisture your skin needs whilst revitalising and energising skin with Orange Oil to give it a boost of radiance.
I find this one fab when I've had a rough night and very little sleep, popping it on for 2-5 minutes followed by some hydrating and radiance boosting skincare and avoiding makeup for the day. Don' forget to pop on your SPF, extra important when you have exfoliated, especially now spring has sprung and the sunshine is out more often!
Bobbi Brown Skin Nourish Mask, 75ml £33
A lovely mask for anyone whose skin is a bit dehydrated or needs a moisture boost, the Skin Nourish mask is packed full of Coral Grass and Green Algae which are great ingredients for attracting moisture and helping to lock in hydration.
It uses a unique triple emulsion and has lovely skin-nourishing natural oils and really adds a lovely soft, plump feel to skin. It also features some of my favourite ingredients, such as Muru Muru Butter, which I've previously only spotted in body care products before. You don't need to rinse this one off completely, either, as you can get some extra benefits by massaging in any excess product left on aftr 5 minutes. A good one for using before bed!
If you're a fan of the triple-threat face mask routine like I am, then you can easily work these three together in a magical trio pampering routine. I would use the Instant Detox mask followed by Radiance Boost and finished off with Skin Nourish.
