Lancome Hydra Intense Face Mask

I'm just gonna start by saying I absolutely love this mask. It's the mask that I reach for when my skin needs a serious hydration kick. I am a big believer in face masks, they really help me to keep my skins moisture levels topped up and I also use an exfoliating mask once or twice a week to shift any dead skin cells and unclog pores.

This face mask is targeted towards people with normal to combination skin and believe you me, my skin is as combination as they come. I have an oily t zone and then dry cheeks, forehead and nose. When I say an oily t zone it's no where near as bad as other people I know, it just gets slightly shiny throughout the day so on the whole my skin edges more towards dry and dehydrated rather than oily, so anything that helps to inject more moisture is onto a winner for me.

There is something so luxurious and relaxing about a face mask, you can apply it in the evening whilst watching a film with a glass of wine in hand and let it do it's magic, you feel like you're having a real pamper. The mask is a gel consistency which is really strange as I never like anything gel based on my skin as I find it dries it out, but this is the complete opposite. It's quite a thick consistency and smoothes onto the skin effortlessly. To apply, you just smooth onto the skin and leave for however long you like, Lancôme suggest leaving it for 5 minutes but I tend to apply before I go to sleep and leave on all night. You do not rinse the mask off, you just simply tissue the excess product off that has been left on your face. I actually love the fact that you do not rinse your face, as by tissuing off the excess you can actually see the amount of product that has sunk into your face.

My skin is always left feeling super soft and hydrated after using this mask. I always take this mask with me on holiday for the flight, I find skin gets dehydrated when in-flight due to the air con etc so I apply this mask once we have taken off. It gives extra moisture to the skin whilst also offering a protective shield against any nasties that may be floating about.

Anyone that is looking for a mask that is super hydrating and moisturising then this is for you. I now swear by it and will be re purchasing for as long as Lancôme stocks it.

Have you tried this mask? What do you think?

  2. I am totally obsessed with this face mask! My mum had a tube a while ago and I basically used the whole thing! Everything from the texture and results is incredible- so cooling and refreshing but leaves my skin looking so radiant! I need to re purchase this one!
