Beauty masks are everywhere these days – so let’s trial one every other Friday from now on. From sheet masks, to clay masks, to cream masks, and everything inbetween.
Oh K! GOLD DUST PEEL OFF MASK, £13 (FOR TWO), BOOTS
Oh K! is a Korean beauty-inspired brand with all sorts of goodies shaped by the trend for everything that is SoKo – that’s South Korean. Face masks, and in particular, peel-off and sheet masks are massive in this market, and Oh K! has loads to choose from, with more arriving in the new year.
So, I thought I would give their Gold Dust Peel Off Mask a go – and I was pleasantly surprised. I’ve used one of their Panda sheet masks before, and whilst fun, didn’t feel much difference in my skin.
With this, the results were great – my skin felt smooth, hydrated, and, I think, looked quite radiant. Result.
However, the process was a bit of a trial! You pour out the sparkly gold powder into the bowl provided, add the gloopy gold liquid, mix it all up and apply. I felt there was WAY too much for my face and neck, and I started to have anxiety about the size of my face!
Also, look at these pictures – this mask does not look good! This is not instagram-friendly, unless you don’t mind laughing at yourself. My husband thought I looked like the Fire Goblin fromLabyrinth, I thought it looked like pus, a friend suggested custard.
Thankfully no one came to the door. You can work with this on once it sets – that happens pretty quickly – and after 15-20 minutes, it really does peel off easily.
All in all if you want a quick mask before a night out, then this is the one – your skin will look and feel fab, your makeup will go on beautifully after it, and there’s probably enough in one application for two, so if you buy a box which contains two, you might even get four out of it – perfect for friends to join in the gloopy fun! All for £12!
Ps. My bunny ears headband is from The Body Shop Advent Calendar, but you can get them in the stores for £4.
