I’m cheating a bit here by including two products in my usual single product Mask Monday feature, but they’re both kind of the same thing, from the same line, designed to achieve the same outcome, so I thought they should be reviewed together. The two products I’m talking about are both from the Face D 3-Luronics range, firstly the Instant Hydrating Anti-Ageing Mask and secondly the Instant Effect Depuffing Eye Mask.
I’ll start with the Instant Hydrating Anti-Ageing Mask which is a sheet mask that comes in an individual sachet within a pack of five. It’s free from nasties and packed full of goodies, so it definitely sounds and looks promising as it’s designed to deeply hydrate the skin. I was really pleased the mask was cotton as I much prefer these to plastic or gel, but the cotton was so thick that it was difficult to mold to the face. Pair that with the fact that it wasn’t a very good fit and it made for a bit of a waste of time as no matter what I did and how I moved the mask around, the result would always be one area of the face becoming uncovered by the mask at the detriment of another area getting some mask-love.
I do have a long face which can make sheet masks tricky, but I can usually make it work. Consequently after 30 minutes use, I didn’t find my skin to feel particularly hydrated and by this point the mask had pretty much dried out. A pack of five costs £14.99 (currently on special for £9.99) if you want to try them yourself, they’re here – link.
The Instant Effect Depuffing Eye Masks did a lot better, thankfully. You get 8 pairs in a pack and each individual sachet contains a plastic sheet with the eye masks stuck on, that you simply lift off and apply. These fit fantastically well and stay put until you’re ready to remove them. They’re cooling and hydrating without being messy or drippy and they leave the whole under eye area looking smooth, hydrated and generally a lot better. I don’t often get puffy eyes but I would guess these would work extremely well to reduce puffiness as they’re large enough to cover the whole area and soothing enough to get to work. They’re also extremely well priced at £7.99 for the pack, making them a very good product indeed. You can find them here – link – for £5.32. If you’re prone to puffiness, I’d recommend stocking up.
