Superdrug Sugar and Spice Self-Heating Mask Review

Thursday, 13 September 2012

As a few of you many have noticed I'm nearing 300 followers and I've decided that when I reach that milestone I'm going to host a give away. I decided to check out a few sachet masks as I thought that they'd be a good prize as A) Everyone loves a good face mask and B) They won't raise the postage cost too much allowing me to spend more on the prize than on the shipping. I picked up two from Superdrug and I wanted to try them out before deciding whether I would be sending them out or not. The first one I tried was the Sugar and Spice Self-Heating Mask.

This mask really stood out to me because I've never heard of anything like it before, I'm also a huge fan of spicy smells. I know that skincare is subjective to everyone but I honestly feel like pouring acid on my face would have been a better use of my time! When I first put on this mask I had no problems with it. It smelt amazing and I could feel it heating up straight away. I literally felt and looked like I was spreading warm, gooey caramel all over my face. The consistency was quite runny but this was solved by an innovative face wipe napkin to catch any drips. So far so good.

However, after about 5 minutes I got a really strong burning sensation concentrated on my cheeks and nose. The instructions say to leave this on for 10-15 minutes but I had to take it off before this because it was really hurting me. The burning sensation remained a while after I had taken this off. I was quite surprised by this as I don't have sensitive skin!

The only plus I can see to this product is that is is BUAV approved and suitable for vegans as are all of the other Superdrug masks. It cost 99p from Superdrug and I definitely don't recommend it.
