Natural Radiance: Cucumber Collagen Mask Review & Giveaway - CLOSED

The lovely people at Natural Radiance kindly sent me some facemasks to try out last week. I was particularly excited because they specialise in Korean sheet masks and I’d never tried any before.


I received a Purederm cucumber collagen mask(*) with vitamin E, which “visibly moisturises the skin and restores skin tone after UV exposure”. Unfortunately I haven’t been in the sun, but working long days at a festival last week has taken its toll on my skin.


First impressions:
The packet says the liquid saturating the mask is 100% pulp. I was worried when I opened the mask as it seemed to be too liquid-y but it’s very thick and didn’t drip. I was hoping it would smell really fresh like cucumbers but there didn’t seem to be much scent to it at all.


The actual mask felt like baby wipe kind of material and was surprisingly thicker than I’d expected. It looked huge when I took it out of the packaging but I guess my face is bigger than I realised, as it seemed to fit with just a bit of overlap on the hairline.

I left it on for about 10 minutes more than the suggested 15minutes, until the edges started to dry. When I peeled it off my face felt a little sticky, but this disappeared within a few minutes once the residue was dry.

Probably the most unflattering mask I've ever tried! haha

Results:
Whilst I didn’t notice any visible difference in my skin, it feels a lot smoother and rehydrated. The boy even commented on how soft my face was. It was lovely and cooling, so definitely perfect for a quick fix once it gets a bit warmer, or generally if you’ve got dull, dry skin.

The only downside is that they make you look like a bit of a numpty. Excuse my miserable face in the pictures, it was a little awkward to smile!


Would I purchase?
Definitely. At just $0.88 each these are a complete steal! Unfortunately Natural Radiance doesn’t ship outside the UK just yet, but when they do I’ll definitely be buying!


Definitely check out the website, it’s sheet mask heaven!

I was also sent extra masks for a little giveaway so to be in with a chance of winning one of these lovely masks then to enter you must:

I love face masks, one of my favs is the Soap & Glory Fab Pore mask which clears out your pores and helps to shrink them.
