FACE MASK FRIDAY: SKIN REPUBLIC GOLD HYDROGEL MASK

Skin Republic Gold Hydrogel Mask

The Skin Republic Gold Hydrogel Mask* (£6.99 from Look Fantastic) looks very luxurious with it’s shiny gold colouring. This mask has so many skin benefits and is perfect for a pampering night in.

The mask is a hydrogel one, so it’s a thick gel-like mask that fits really well to the skin. It comes in two parts too – one for the top and one for the bottom halves of your face. This allows you to get a closer, more accurate fit to your face. The gel mask is soaked in a serum that contains lots of skin-boosting ingredients, and as you wear it, these penetrate into your skin. It’s very cooling and pleasant to wear, and it doesn’t have a scent.

Let’s start by talking about the formulation of the gel mask itself, as it’s infused with gold particles. Gold has long been used in skincare, right back to the Ancient Egyptians, as it has amazing anti-ageing and skin-perfecting properties – it increases the elasticity of the skin to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, it stimulates cell production, it brightens the skin, slows down collagen depletion, and acts as an anti-inflammatory.

The mask is then soaked in a serum that’s full of vitamins, minerals and plant extracts to further benefit the skin. It has super-hydrating sea water, anti-ageing collagen, and the anti-oxident grapefruit to protect your skin from environmental stresses. Grapefruit extract also stimulates collagen production and brightens the skin; making this a great all-rounder mask.

You wear this mask for 20 minutes, then massage any excess serum into the skin. You can pick this mask up for £6.99 from Look Fantastic. Let me know what you think if you try it!
