I’m not going to lie, when I picked this up I actually meant to pick something different up. MissBudgetBeauty had recommended a glycolic mask from Superdrug and in my eagerness I forgot to check the exact name. I didn’t realise until a couple of days later that I had picked up the wrong mask, and because I’m so lazy I couldn’t be bothered to take this one back!
To begin with I was a little put off by the fact that it’s such a small tube. It costs £5.99 and you only get 30ml of product, but I’ve been wanting to try out a glycolic treatment for a while so figured I would give it a go anyway (for reference, the one MissBudgetBeauty recommended was the Clearly Youthful Glycolic Peel which is £6.99 for 50ml).
Anyway, I tried this one out for the first time the other week and I actually really like it. You only need a pea sized amount of this gel formula, so although you don’t get a lot of product for your money, it goes a long way. The idea is to spread this over your face after cleansing and leave it on overnight. When you wash it off in the morning you should be left with smoother, more radiant skin.
The gel sinks into your skin and dries really fast so you don’t have to worry about getting this all over your pillow. It didn’t really feel like I had anything on my face, and didn’t sting or irritate me at all. The next morning I washed it off as instructed and my skin felt so smooth and soft, I couldn’t believe it! This also seemed to tighten my skin as I didn’t notice as many fine lines as normal. I’ll have to continue using it to see if it really helps to even out my skin tone but so far I’m impressed. It’s such an easy treat for your skin, no mess no fuss, and like I said, the tube will last a long time given how little you need to use each time.
Let me know if you’ve tried this or any other glycolic products you think I should try out.
