Superdrug's Budget Friendly Face Masks

Superdrug's Budget Friendly Face Masks

Normally when I think of Superdrug and face masks those little sachets pop into my mind, which I am not a huge fan of in all honesty. Not so long ago I was browsing the aisles of my local Superdrug and stumbled across tubes of face mask which were well priced and claimed to help various skin ailments. At just £2.59 a tube I ended up snapping two to try out...

Superdrug Aloe Vera Mud Mask
I love a good mud mask, something to not only soak up excess oil but also deeply cleanse and Superdrug Aloe Vera Mud Mask does just that. It gently removes any trapped oil or dirt leaving my pores looking not only clearer but also temporarily smaller. The bonus of a mask of this type is that they naturally dry up blemishes, helping them heal and clear quicker. I wouldn't say this dries out my skin as such but it does help to keep my excess oil levels balanced to a degree. If you have dry skin I would say skip this particular mask and go for something more hydrating. As this contains Aloe Vera it is both cooling and calming amongst all the benefits. I always find that mud masks leave my skin looking brighter, plump and refreshed and do treat myself to at least one application a week. For change of £3 this is a great little addition to any bathroom shelf!

Basically this is an intensive moisturiser or a sleep mask, a cooling, light and almost gel like textured cream which you smooth on to the skin, allow to absorb and then tissue off any excess after 10-15 minutes. As many will know I have oily skin which doesn't typically require a lot of hydration but due to stress I have been suffering from dry areas. Generally speaking this face mask simply sits on top of my skin not absorbing other than in the dry areas which suits me just fine as my skin is easily overwhelmed. The Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Mask is not at all a new concept, many brands offer a similar product which delivers the same results but at £2.59 I do think you'd be a fool not to try this version first. As well as giving my skin a little extra hydration I find that the added vitamin E really does brighten. I use Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Mask if and when I need it but those with dry skin may find this a great addition to their Winter skin care routine - I can see no reason why you couldn't use this daily if needs must as it is really gentle.

  1. I'd really like to try the hydrating one, especially for such a low price. I usually use masks that come in packets, but I find them really annoying because there's way too much product in them, and they're too messy to use more than once, so you end up wasting a lot of product. May switch to tubes instead :)

  8. They sounds like lovely masks and for such a great price! Most face masks out on the market are so ridiculously expensive, and usually do the same job as much cheaper masks! Would definitely like to give these a try! xx

  9. I have the Dead Sea Purifying Clay mask from Superdrug and I used it several times and loved it and then last time I used it I reacted so badly to it, I was devastated!
    I would definitely be careful with that one with sensitive skin, but I am pretty tempted to try out these two, it sounds like the Aloe Vera one is similar but more gentle, perfect :)

  11. I've just bought my second tube of the hydrating mask, I love that they're in tubes so you can get every last bit out and they're great for popping on your skin when it needs an extra boost of moisture.

  12. I don't think I've done a face mask since I was like 14 and they were all the rage haha. The Vitamin E one sounds good for my skin!

  20. I gave the mud mask a try a couple of days ago, I don't know whether it's the alcohol in it or something else, but it burned like crazy and my skin was peeling :/ Definitely not for sensitive skins, no matter how oily! The aloe vera one sounds good, though
