Top 3 Moisture boosting masks.

My skin can easily become dehydrated, dry, taut : essentially dull and lacklustre. When this happens and I feel that my skin needs some serious *treatment* I add a treatment moisture mask twice a week to really get my skin back into a healthier, hydrated state, so that the texture becomes softer and smoother. A great moisture mask puts the radiance back into a skin that has lost it's mojo and these are my top picks to help you get your skin a little fresh face action :)

Treatment Mask:
Filorga Meso Mask 50ml £38.00
What they say:
This program, directly inspired by mesotherapy treatments practiced in the doctor's office brightens the skin for a luminous and radiant complexion, while treating wrinkles and erasing all signs of tiredness.
  • The skin is plumped-up, smoother and is radiant with a fresh and healthy glow
  • All signs of fatigue disappear
Why I love it: It is a cooling and comforting texture that makes your skin feel soothed, plumped and hydrated. I actually find that my skin looks *rested*.and very healthy with a definite *glow* after using and it helps to take the *heat* out of irritated skin..
Verdict: Plumper, hydrated skin in a jar.
Note: Can be left on the skin up to half an hour (I normally leave it on for 10-15 mins)

Deluxe Mask:
Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask- 60ml £88
What They Say:

A skincare mask rich in trace elements, vitamins and plant extracts, specially formulated to act instantly on the signs of aging and fatigue to rejuvenate skin and restore vitality. 

An instant youth and beauty boost combining three actions to restore a luminous complexion and skin that appears redensified, in only 15 minutes.

  • a smoothing and plumping action
  • a revitalizing action
  • a moisturising, softening and repairing

Why I love it: It is an incredibly sumptuous texture with a delicate floral aroma, my skin feels less stressed, hydrated and very, very smooth. If you are looking for a mask that will restore your skin to it's former glory, then this should be your 1st choice and it is my personal go-to mask when my skin is dry/stressed and in need of TLC. It is revitalising and makes my skin feel very soft and refreshed.
Verdict: A solid investment
Note: To be used 2 to 3 times a week for 10-15 mins
