I feel as though I always start my review posts with an excuse as to why I bought the product I'm writing about... I might as well carry on with this recurring theme.
About a month ago, I was doing my weekly online shop at Tesco... unfortunately I was a couple of quid short of the £25 minimum spend, so rather than stocking up on some naughty sweet treats, I headed over to the Health & Beauty section and selected a cheap and cheerful face mask by a brand I'd never heard of... Quick Fix Facials. From a quick glance at the product description, I was pretty impressed at the ingredients, which seemed more akin to a high-end product than a mere supermarket one. I chose the Exfoliating Scrub Mask, targeted at skin with blocked pores and blackheads (...the pictures are probably something of a spoiler here, seeing as you may have noticed I now have a further 2 products in my Quick Fix collection).
The mask contains Pink Rose Clay, Glycolic Acid and Pomegranate, which work together to remove stubborn blocked pores, as well as reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and scarring. I have to say the difference before and after use was pretty amazing - my skin felt less congested and looked so much smoother and brighter. I now use the Exfoliating Mask 2-3 times a week and can honestly say it's one of the best face masks I've ever tried. The product claims to have ten facials within it, but I'm pretty sure I've used it more than ten times and still have a hefty amount of product left in the tube... but the real humdinger? It's only £4.99... what's not to love?!
I've since added the Anti-Blemish Mud Mask and the Mega Moisture Gel Mask to my beauty product stash, and whilst I'm yet to have tried the latter of the two, the Anti-Blemish Mud Mask has also seriously impressed me. Its ingredients of tea tree oil, salicylic acid and dead sea mud provide the perfect blemish-fighting cocktail to clear pores, control excess oil production and stop the formation of spots, and I've found it to be great as a targeted treatment to clear an existing spot up as quickly as possible.
Fingers (and toes) crossed...
Quick Fix Facials are available at Tesco and Boots.
