I realised a few days ago that I forgot to write the final post on my Triple Threat Facial series, so here’s the last of the introductory trio. Triple Threat Facials involve using a chemical exfoliating mask, followed by a purifying mask before finishing off with a moisturising mask. If you find a combination that works for you the results are pretty wonderful, but at the very least you’ll be left with balanced and cleansed skin that feels well cared for. Here are three great hydrating masks that work well as the final stage to the Triple Threat Facials:
Liz Earle Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask
This is the crowd-pleaser of the three as I think it would work well on most skin types. It’s rich, creamy and hydrating which is exactly what you want from a hydrating mask. It has a slightly floral fragrance which suits the product, and you don’t need a huge amount for it to work, so I think this would last for quite a few uses. It’s £14 for 50ml here – link – where you can also find the 15ml version for £5.50 if you fancy trying it out before committing to the full-sized product.
Una Brennan Superfacialist Rose Intense Moisture Mask
I have a lot of love for the Superfacialist range as they’re fantastically priced, plus I’m yet to use a dud product. This is my go-to moisture mask as it’s thick, rich, creamy and fragrant; it packs a lot of moisture back into the skin and it doesn’t break me out, so it’s well worth trying if you haven’t already – I’m on my third bottle! It’s usually £8.99, however Boots have 1/3 off the Superfacialist range at the moment meaning this is currently £5.99 here – link – total bargain.
Bioderma Hydrabio Moisturising Mask
The Hydrabio range from Bioderma is a total dream if you have tricky skin that’s prone to dehydration as it’s amazing at putting moisture back into the skin without flooding it. I love the micellar from the range (my full review is here) and I also absolutely adore this mask too. It’s a gel-like mask rather than a cream, and it doesn’t feel like much to write home about whilst on, but after removal skin feels incredible; nourished, calmed and generally very happy. This is the one for you if you’re nervous about a moisture mask causing spots and it’s also on special at Escentual here – link – for £11.60.
There we have my picks for the hydrating mask element of the Triple Threat Facial. Check out my post on the exfoliators here and the purifiers here. I’ll also be sharing some of my favourite combinations soon, so keep your eyes peeled for those.
