Huxley is the skincare brand that’s been on everyone’s lips lately.
It’s chic, minimalistic design and luxurious ambiance make it a must-have for
many beauty gurus. But that’s not all! It’s won a slew of awards, pushing aside
other beauty giants, to demonstrate that it’s not just another PR stunt with
pretty packaging – the skincare items themselves are impressive!
So! Huxley has just released their very
first mask sheet – The Mask; Oil and Extract. So today, let’s review this
This particular mask sheet contains
a mixture of two main ingredients:
1. Prickly Pear Seed Oil, otherwise
known as ‘The Secret Of The Sahara’ to provide a strong anti-oxidant and
2. Cactus Water to infuse your skin
with a wealth of hydration
Each box contains 3 mask sheets
which are unique in design. That is, the packet
contains 2 compartments, the first houses the sheet and the second holds the oil.
To use, you need to roll up the
section holding the oil then press down firmly on the edges of the pocket until
it pops. This will release the oil into the mask sheet compartment. This part was
surprisingly hard to do! But
sturdy is good right? It’s leakage proof!
As promised the mask sheet itself
was incredibly smooth and silky to touch. It also adhered far better than other
products I’ve tried which is great news! After all, the better it binds, the more likely the nutrients will infuse into your skin (and I don't want to waste any)!
After 20 mins, I
chose to remove the mask sheet and lightly wash off the excess residue (this is optional, you can simply pat in the remaining essence/oil if you want). I then
finished off with Huxley’s other new releases, the Essence; Brightly Ever After
and Cream; Glow Awakening (review coming soon)!
Despite the oil, the mask sheet
didn’t have a greasy finish. In fact, it absorbed
well into the skin and left me feeling refreshed and hydrated.
