Makeup Revolution have been releasing a whole bunch of masks the last few months. I think whatever you feel like your skin needs, they will have an option for you for a very fair price (as usual with makeup revolution). This was my first ever encounter with their masks, and I chose a hydrating one with a little twist…it’s supposed to be heating up!
First of all, I was surprised that the mask came in a nice glass jar. For the price I expected plastic. The design is very simple and minimalistic, but the weight of it makes it feel more luxurious for sure. You get a total of 50 ml which is pretty standard for this kind of product. It’s also vegan and cruelty free if that’s important to you.
One of the first things I noticed about this was the scent. It smells a bit like soap. Unfortunately not the good kind, but the small, cheap feeling bars you get in hotels. The scent is a bit off putting to me, and it smells a bit cheap. It’s not an overpowering scent though, but I can definitely smell the cheap soap when I apply it.
When you apply it something interesting happens though. The gel actually feels warming! The sensation is present for a fairly short time though, but when you rub in the mask, and for a minute or two after that you can feel that it’s warm. After being outside in the cold for a while I actually found this sensation quite pleasing and I would almost wish it could last longer.
This is the kind of mask you need to wash of instead of peeling or just letting it sink into the skin. After using this mask I felt like my skin was refreshed and hydrated. It’s not the most heavy duty intensely moisturizing mask, but it sure adds some hydration to the skin.
If you are not bothered by the scent, this is a decent hydrating mask that is also wallet friendly. Personally, because of the scent, I would rather try some of the many other masks by Makeup Revolution instead of repurchasing this.
