As soon as the weather begins to get cooler and the central heating strikes up, my skin has a meltdown with excessive dry patches and lack lustre appearance which means a complete overhaul of my existing skincare routine.
You can imagine my delight when the lovely people at Kathleen sent me their new Bright Mask*, a pre-mixed face mask formulated to refresh, hydrate and illuminate all skin types – something which sounded like the product for me!
Kathleen are a luxury, British skincare brand who create a range of natural skincare products with high quality, organic ingredients. Their skincare is aimed at all ages, with a selection of products for every stage of your skincare journey whether you are preparing for the first signs of aging in your 20s, aiding menopausal skin in your 50s or embracing mature skin in your 90s – Kathleen have got you covered.
Bright Mask is formulated to refresh, hydrate and illuminate all skin types and thanks to the addition of natural AHA’s in skin loving ingredients such as Hibiscus and White Willow Bark, the mask gently peels the skin to leave it feeling instantly softer, smoother and looking brighter in its appearance.
The texture of mask itself is beautiful, with a silky smooth, thick consistency that doesn’t feel sticky like a lot of other pre-mixed masks i’ve used in the past. It applies to the skin easily, allowing you to apply a very thin layer with minimum effort. I have to say that I was surprised to see the mask start to dry out after a few minutes, as usually masks such as this tend not to alter too much on the skin. As someone with a dry skin type prone to sensitivity, I was slightly worried but decided not to spritz it down as I wanted to see how the mask performed on it’s own. After 10 minutes, I took a warm cloth to my skin and was pleasantly surprised to see that the mask didn’t require any scrubbing to remove, as it turned almost milky as I begin to wipe it away. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to rinse off and despite it’s typical clay mask properties, my skin certainly didn’t feel dry or tight after use but instead felt incredibly soft and nourished. My skin certainly looked less dull and slightly dewy in its appearance after use, all without any redness or irritation, and the positive effects lasted for several days.
I have used this on three occasions now and have been loving the results. The scent is unlike anything i’ve experienced from a face mask as the geranium, frankincense and marjoram aroma is intense from the jar yet when applied to the skin gives a delicate herby fragrance that is a real treat for the senses.
Kathleen’s Bright Mask has been a joy to use and one which I will be keeping in my skincare routine for the long haul. I cannot wait to try more facial products from the brand in the future, as my experience with Bright Mask, as well as their Bubble Bath and Shower Gels, have been impressive and i’m excited to see what else the brand have to offer.
