Superdrug Tropical Cocktail Peel Off Mask


Superdrug have recently launched their own range of face masks, the complete range features a huge range of masks including deep self heating, exfoliating and my personal favourite, peel offs. I don't usually use face masks but I thought I would treat myself to one as my skin has been looking a little worse for wear recently. 

There are a total of 5 peel off masks (include one for men!) but I decided on the 'tropical cocktail' as I am a big fan of fruity scents. Upon opening this smelt very similar to coconut, but once applied the scent of  pineapple is more present. It's pleasant without being too overbearing and lasts on the skin once the mask has been removed.

I'm not a big fan of this type of packaging as it can get quite messy to apply it to your face and I find I usually get it everywhere, but I suppose this is the most practical packaging possible. I found there was a generous amount of product, which allowed me to apply a thick layer on my face, as well as allowing me some left over for a swatch on my hand to show you what it's like. 
As you can see from the picture it's a pleasant yellow/orange colour which compliments the scent of the product, and the formula is quite thick but without being difficult to apply which I enjoyed.

Superdrug recommend leaving the mask on for about 20 minutes, but I left mine on while watching TOWIE to ensure it was fully dried, there's nothing worse than peeling off a face mask and still having wet patches! I could immediately feel it working on my skin, and after about 10 minutes you could feel it slightly tightening the skin but without being uncomfortable. I found once I removed the mask it was so simple. About 95% came off on one 'pull' which has never happened with a face mask before so I was highly impressed!



Overall I absolute love this face mask and I will definitely be repurchasing this again and again! I intend to also try the other peel off masks and see how they compare! I am a bit reluctant to try other types of masks as I don't like the hassle of getting it off afterwards but after such a positive experience with this one I am tempted to venture into other types of masks. The White Chocolate Mousse mask sounds very interesting and I can't wait to smell it! 



All of Superdrug's own brand face masks are a bargain price of 99p, and are currently on offer for 4 for the price of 3 - even more reason to pick up a selection! Have you tried any of their face masks? And what do you think of them? X
