I have been mixing and matching my evening routine recently as I want to try more mask type products which is what originally led me to finding the Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask which I bought for £10.00 from www.sanctuary.com.
The packaging for me isn’t the best for two reasons. Firstly, the product if quite thick and gloopy and you have to really wipe the mask away or it gets all round the edges and in the lid if you close it and I am a bit OCD about keeping things like this clean as I hate it when they get all crusty and disgusting! The second reason is I like to get the most for my money and I feel like as this is already quite a thick consistency it will be really hard to squeeze out the last bit it will be even more difficult because of the type of tube it’s in but that’s just my personal opinion.
I have used this a few times now and I have to say I am pleased with this purchase. I have only used it four or five times so around once a week, however, it recommends using it 2-3 times a week but I don’t feel it necessary to use a detox mask as often as that.
It claims to be ‘Intensely purifying yet non-drying deep cleanse mask’ and I feel like this is one of those things that actually does what it says on the tin. As I’m prone to dry patches on my face I really don’t need any more dryness so this works really well for me.
As explained above, the texture is thick and gooey. It says to apply a thin layer so you have to kind of work the mask on your skin by going over it a few times to spread it across your skin. I only use one or two fingers and spread it in one direction as I think it would be a very bad idea to start rubbing it around in circles or something!
One last thing I definitely should mention is that this is the kind of thing you need to tie your hair back as if you get this in your hair it’s so horrible sticky once it gets in your hair!!
