Image Hydrating Hydrogel Mask

Hey lovelies,
Today I am back with a post all about face masks and you know how much I adore a good sheet mask. They are a really easy way to relax and pamper yourself, and it really does make you take half an hour out to yourself, which I am sure you will all agree, we all need from time to time.

Image Skincare recently launched the new generation of sheet masks. These aren't like the normal sheet masks, they are a bio molecular mask with patented hydrogel technology, and trust me when I say this makes a huge difference to the mask. 
I was very lucky to be gifted the two new types of mask at their Irish Launch Party for the new 2017 products, and I was looking forward to trying it out.

These masks include red algae and carob tree, and were developed with mineral charged onsen-sui and jeju volcanic oxygen water which offers high levels of moisture. The incorporated ginseng is anti inflammatory and is known to be an antioxidant which is going to help calm down the skin. 
This type of mask is great for any type of skin, or even post treatment or in prep for a big event. I personally feel, any type of skin can benefit from this huge hit of hydration. 

So after cleansing, I opened up the individually sealed packet, and the mask was fully saturated in the product. The instructions are to drape it over face and peel off the top layer to leave behind the hydrogel layer then you can fix it to the face and give it 25 minutes. 
There was still a lot of the infused serum in the packet, so what I suggest is you can either save this and put it in a little pot for the next day, or you can massage it in after the mask comes off. My skin was super stressed and dry so I decided to use the extra serum after my mask.

The mask sat really well on my skin and unlike a lot of other sheet masks I have tried, didn't move about or take too much work to keep it on. My forehead was obviously the driest of areas as it really soaked in quick. After the 25 minutes, I removed the mask and massaged the remaining serum in, and then massaged the serum that was left in the packet. To say my skin felt hydrated is an understatement, The serum felt very like a balm and definitely left a film on the skin. For this reason I would say that the best time to do this mask would be the day before an event or night out, personally I wouldn't do it in the morning when you would put on makeup straight away. I did it early evening and when I did my makeup the next day it went on like a dream.

These masks come in at £10 for 1 and £45 for a pack of 5. I really do feel they are worth it for a treat for your skin and definitely would be great as a gift for a bride to be or someone who travels. I will definitely be buying a packet for before and during my trip to New York in January.
