These masks from Beauty Boulevard are designed to give you glow through hydration, rather than with glitter, which is what Beauty Boulevard are most known for. Their Divine Hydra Gel masks come in four varieties – eyes, lips, neck and face. I have a love-hate relationship with lip masks, as they are so annnoying to wear. Some I think work well, but others are useless, so I was excited to try this one from Beauty Boulevard.
Neck masks, I think, are a great idea, as we often avoid this area when applying our skincare; especially if we are in a rush to get to work. Our necks need a bit of TLC, so having a targeted treatment like this, to wear alongside our usual face masks is very useful.
This neck mask* comes in a pair – so two treatments for £14.50 from Beauty Boulevard. These are very slippy, so you definitely can’t move around with one on. Lie down and take some time out when wearing this. They contain hydrating and plumping Hyaluronic Acid, natural green tea extract (which has antioxidant benefits and is also a soothing, anti-inflammatory), antioxidant-rich red wine extract, and elasticity-boosting collagen.
The lip mask* also comes in a pair – for £7.50. It’s designed to hydrate, plump and make your lips more supple. You definitely have to lie down to keep this lip mask in place. These masks also feature the same key ingredients as the neck mask. It’s very interesting to see red wine extract in there. I’ve reviewed hundreds of face masks for my Face Mask Friday posts over the last few years, and this is an ingredient that I’ve never seen listed like this before. From red grape skins you get the powerful anti-oxidant Resveratrol to fight against free radicals and environmental pollutants that age your skin. Having Resveratrol with green tea extract, means that you are covered for all the types of antioxidants your skin needs to fight and repair environmental damage. Resveratrol is a common ingredient in anti-ageing skincare, but it’s not normally described as red wine extract. Resveratrol also promotes the synthesis of new skin cells and helps boost the skin’s natural Hyaluronic Acid production. It’s a real powerhouse ingredient!
These lip masks do give good results, but they are temporary, unless you can afford to do one of these masks every day. I find that they are most useful if you apply them just before lipstick if your lips are looking a bit dry and cracked. You’ll have a fuller pout, and a smoother finish. The neck masks also visibly hydrate and plump the skin on your neck. Great if you are planning on wearing a dress or top that exposes this area, as these masks help it look firmer and smoother. With the neck masks, you are also giving this much neglected area some loving care.
