Skincare Saturdays || Soap & Glory Self-Heating Face Mask


Hellooo my lovelies,

 One of my favourite skincare routines is doing a face mask and my favourite type of face masks are self-heating ones. So when I saw that Soap and Glory did a self-heating face mask I had to give it a try as I love them as a brand. I also thought that it would be better value for money than buying individual packets at a pound as this although more expensive will presumably have many more uses out of it. Also the packets can only be used once but often have excess product left in them so it always seems like a bit of a waste (unless you do it with a friend).

 The first thing I like about this is the packaging because it has a nice chalky feel to it which is quite unusual in a product. I'm happy Soap & Glory have kept it quite classic and chic with a plain white background with the blue and black writing on it. I'm really glad that it's sturdier than the Dr Spot packaging which I was very unimpressed with and reviewed here.


 The texture of this is a cross between chalk and oatmeal (you know that watery/lumpy material) which sounds horrible but when you blend it out onto your face it spreads into a paste. Soap and Glory actually recommend that you use a grape sized amount of product but I found this wasn't enough to cover my face so I needed a bit more than that. Soap and Glory also recommend that you put this on a dry face and then wet it to turn the mask blue and activate it. I tried this and didn't like the mask at all because it didn't self-heat when I wet my hands it instead started to wash off. I found that the best way to use this mask is to apply it with dry hands to a dry face and rub it in, it then starts to self-heat and just leave it for five minutes before washing it off with a warm face cloth. The mask doesn't turn blue or do any fancy tricks but it does self-heat and work as a good mask. The only time I've ever experienced the mask turn blue is when washing it off around the corners of my nose but it would add a nice touch if it changed colour when activated.

 Overall I do really like this mask, it's relaxing and leaves my skin feeling lovely and I have noticed less break outs since using this product. However, I think the instructions on the back are all wrong and need to be reworded as it could put people off the product.

  4. This sounds like it could be great! I like the fact that it's in a bottle rather than little packs. Might have to buy one myself!x
