I’m not the world’s greatest face-masker. I mean I have great intentions, of course, but rarely get around to it. But for Clarins I was willing to make an exception and give its new SOS range a whirl with a spot of multi-masking.
What’s this multi-masking, I hear you ask? Basically, it’s when you use separate masks for different concerns, depending on your skin’s needs. So for example, my cheeks are a little dry but my chin is blemish-prone, and my nose oily. All different, all requiring some individual tender love and care.
The three Clarins SOS face masks have been formulated to address the main skincare concerns – dry and dehydrated skin, oily and spot-prone skin, and ageing skin (boo! hiss!).
So let’s take a closer look at these bad boys.
Clarins SOS Hydra
I mainly use the SOS Hydra on my dry cheeks. The cooling cream-gel texture is ideal for sensitive, dehydrated skin. Formulated with organic leaf of life extract (ooh fancy!) and hyaluronic acid, the mask promises a “plumping” effect. I really loved how cooling this was, especially during the recent spell of hot summer weather, and I intend packing this for my holliers too.
Clarins SOS Pure
This non-drying clay is great for combination to oily skin like mine. Formulated with organic Alpine willow herb, it smells heavenly, doesn’t dry into a solid clay mask (I hate that!) and leaves skin feeling squeaky clean and smooth.
Clarins SOS Comfort
Finally, my favourite mask is the SOS Comfort. A blend of mango oil, it smells divine and leaves skin super soft. Clarins doesn’t recommend this but I actually leave this on as an overnight treatment for gorgeous skin come morning.
So ladies do you face mask regularly?
