Apologies this post is a day late, I just didn’t feel like doing it yesterday. At the moment, I think we all need to allow extra time for self-care and doing what our bodies and minds want in that moment. This Face Mask Friday post is a review of an overnight sleeping mask from luxury independent skincare brand Avant Skincare. This one is a definite winner, and you need it in your routine!
The Avant Skincare Overnight Moisture Surge Treatment*** (£85 from Avant Skincare) comes in a weighty, luxurious-feeling glass pot. I am obsessed with the Youth to the People Dream Mask because of its buttery goodness, and this mask has that same buttery cream texture, albeit a tiny bit lighter. It is so incredibly good for my skin and really softens it, hydrates it and adds so much glow. If you are a fan of the YTTP mask, you are guaranteed to love this. I haven’t actually been using this as an overnight mask. I’ve been putting it on at the end of my morning skincare and just wearing it on my skin all day while we’re at home in self-isolation. Then by the time it comes to night-time skincare, my skin looks incredible.This mask is an intensive hydrator. It will give your skin so much moisture and really soften and condition it too; so that you wake up with plump, soft, youthful skin. Or if you choose you wear it during the day, it actually works really well this way – one of the ingredients it contains is Polyacrylamide, which forms a thin coating on the skin to help as a barrier against UVA/UVB rays.
This mask also contains shea butter (where that delightful, rich, buttery texture comes from) to intensely moisturise and reduce inflammation; emoliant Sweet Almond Oil to improve complexion and tone, tackle dry skin and reduce puffiness. There’s also amazing antioxidents to fight free radicals – Vitamin A promotes natural moisturising and hydrating, and it boosts glow. It also helps to stimulate the skin renewal process. Vitamin E promotes a healthy skin barrier and also has moisturising and healing benefits too.
This is just such a dreamy mask to use and you can see the results from it immediately after a day/night of wearing it. It really makes your skin look and feel healthier, glowier, plumper and youthful with good elasticity. I will definitely be purchasing this mask when this one runs out, as it’s incredible!
