Fresh! Rose Face Mask

I used to talk about my 'oily' spot prone skin all the time on here and was forever looking for mattifying, balancing products. As you all may or perhaps may not know I battled with cystic acne for a few years and received treatments including roaccutane and various other antibiotics. Recently however, while I can't say I haven't had the odd pimple or two my skin has been well behaved, yet I can't help but notice how DRY it has become. I used to have to powder throughout the day to stop oil building up, but now I can use super radiance boosting foundation and have it stay in place all day. I've also found myself looking towards hydrating skin care to give my skin the boost of moisture it needs and I recently found something which I really enjoyed...

When this little Rose Face Mask by Fresh! popped through my letter box recently I was seriously intrigued to find out whether it would put an end to all of my dry skin woes. I've probably used the mask about 5 or 6 times already since I got it and I have really been enjoying using it.The mask which has real rose petals and pure rose water in it smells absolutely insane for starters. Its quite watery and gel like so I normally use this in the mornings after cleansing with my Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. The instructions say to start at the neck and rub in upward strokes in order to 'help the formula penetrate'. I absolutely love using this as it feels so luxurious and pampering to use and I genuinely like spending the time massaging it into my skin knowing that all the goodness from the ingredients, which include green tea and cucumber extract, are working their wonders on my skin!

After around ten minutes is when I will normally use a face cloth and some lukewarm water to rinse off the product. The information on the website says it can be used daily but I use it every other day and I honestly have seen such a difference in my skin. I sometimes suffer from really annoying dry and flaky skin patches around my nose and eyebrows and this mask has sorted it out. It also makes my skin so soft and supple and prepares it so well for the application of moisturizer and make up. The one thing I really have noticed that I wasn't expecting though is an improvement in my overall collection. My skin can look quite dull and grey at times and when I use this I notice a natural flush in my cheeks and I really just look a bit less fatigued in general. I'm so happy that I got the opportunity to try this mask as it has been exactly what my skin has needed.

While this product has lots of benefits it definitely errs on the side of 'luxury' and we all know that luxury products don't come with a small price tag. At almost £50 a pop it certainly isn't cheap and is probably a serious investment for a lot of people especially those of you who are students. Although it is really good and my skin has reaped the benefits from it I'm not sure I will be purchasing the full size of this mask until I have a little bit more disposable income. I definitely love its effects but I'm not entirely convinced that I couldn't find something similar with a slightly smaller price tag!

Have any of you guys used this face mask? Would you purchase this?
