Review: No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask


This is something I've wanted to try for a while and when I heard the No7 vouchers were back I headed to Boots and picked up this beauty.

It says it's for dry/ very dry skin and claims to give and intense moisture boost. I have quite combination/oily skin and recently it's been quite tight feeling and dehydrated so I thought I'd give this a whirl.

Overall I'm pleased to say I really like it! It's consistency is quite strange, quite gel like with swirls of creaminess that wobbles slightly on your hand (yes I wobbled my hand haha). It goes on quite clear to the face though and feels hydrating and my skin was noticeably more moisturised when I came to apply my make up the next morning. It says to leave it on for 3-10 minutes and I left it on for 5 as my skin isn't "very dry" but I definitely feel I could have gone the whole 10 minutes so the following week I left if for the full 10 minutes and it did make the flaky patches feel uncomfortable and sting slightly but it left my skin soft and the flaky patches noticeably more hydrated but no intense moisture boost really.

With products aimed at dry skin types I always worry they'll be a bit too rich for my already slightly oily skin but this didn't make my skin look more oily at all.

I think if you have dehydrated skin then this could be for you but if you have very very dry, flaky skin then this might not be as moisturising as you'd need. I have flaky skin on and around my nose and as I mentioned earlier, it stung a bit when I put this on but was fine on the rest of my skin. So over all I would recommend this for those of you with dehydrated skin rather than very dry as this mask is more hydrating than it is nourishing so you drier skin types might need something richer.

Have any of you lovelies tried this? What are your thoughts on it?

  1. I bought this on Monday and I'm not entirely sure about it. It stung my face like mad too but I don't think it moisturised very well at all? I'll give it another go but I'm a little wary...

  2. I still have a No7 voucher to use so I might get this with it. I'm a fan of the No7 skincare range and I've found lately that my skin has been abnormally dehydrated too. Lovely review post. :)

  3. Looks like a really interesting product! It's funny as I was just thinking about how I need to find a new mask as my skin has been feeling very dry!

  4. The most Important thing I liked in this review is It's consistency is quite strange, quite gel like with swirls of creaminess that wobbles slightly on your hand.Moreover if you have dehydrated skin then this could be for you but if you have very very dry, flaky skin then this might not be as moisturising as you'd need.
