Aromatherapy Associates Rose Hydrating Mask


I believe I currently hoard a face mask for every complexion crisis, from detoxifying for when my skin is misbehaving, to radiance renewing for when it's in need of a little boost. For me it's the ultimate once-weekly pamper and to have a selection to choose from seems to make it all the more luxurious. My recent addition is one for dry/dehydrated skins, a treat for the upcoming Winter months especially. The Aromatherapy Associates Rose Hydrating Mask contains aloe vera and damask rose water, a combination to restore vital moisture and radiance to the skin. Now, I'm not usually the biggest fan of gel textured masks but this is by far an exception (plus the fact that its clear means you can use it on a long haul flight and your fellow passengers will be none the wiser!). The scent is beyond heavenly, sweet rose water as opposed to 'floral grandma'. 

I use a pea size amount to slather over my face and with that comes an instant cooling, refreshing effect. For a quick fix you can apply and remove after the standard 10 minutes, however, the beauty of this product is that it can be applied and left on overnight to tame even the driest complexions. My skin literally slurps this up and I wake up to juicier, plump skin - dry, flaky patches, be gone! If I really want to crank it up a notch, I'll apply a facial oil underneath first, my product of choice? Clarins Blue Orchid Facial Oil, together it creates the ideal moisture concoction! 

I can tell it's definitely become a staple in my mask stash, a very luxurious one at that for £34.50 so if you're on the hunt for a little less costly option but still something very similar, Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask might be a strong contender (although slightly more fruity!). I'm loving overnight skincare and who knows, a dedicated post may be on its way - is there anything else you can recommend?
