Good Things 5 Minute Facial Face Mask
Hey team! Let me introduce you to my favourite face mask of the moment, Good Things 'Five Minute Facial' - available as part of the fabulous Good Things range of skincare in Boots, Superdrug and Sainsburys. The products are entirely affordable at £3.49-£7.99 and the range includes moisturisers, face wipes, face washes, body scrubs among other things, and, in my honest opinion Good Things are one of my most favourite brands purely because, as is an incredibly important factor here on Confetti Letters, each product smells delightful!
Good Things is a brand created by beauty writer Alice Hart-Davis, and is known for its 'super fruit booster' ingredients like pomegranate, strawberry, grape, papaya, lychee to name but a few. I like to believe in natural ingredients, the fewer parabens and chemically compound-like things that touch my skin the better I say. So naturally (pardon the pun) I love the fact that Good Things is free from animal ingredients, mineral oils, parabens, and sodium laureth sulphate, as is detailed on the packing of every product.
The packing of the Good Things Five Minute Facial itself is simple, yet exciting, it conceals the face mask solution in a squeezable tube with a click top lid. I like this style of packing, there's no need to put grubby fingers in a pot to scoop out the product (hurrah for no contamination!), simply squeeze the desired amount onto your fingers and apply to your face. The motif design on the front is also lovely, it definitely appeals to my inner strawberry and flower loving self! The back of the tube details the ingredients list and the directions for use. (Now, I get complacent about product directions, especially if it's a cleanser or face mask, I always thought they'd all want you to slather the product on to damp skin and then rinse off. When I bought my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish this is what I did until I realised that I had to put the cream onto dry skin. Note to self and warning to all, read the instructions!!)
What the packaging says: 'Five Minute Facial makes skin clearer, brighter and smoother. There's green clay and kaolin to draw out impurities, avocado oil to moisturise, goji berry extract to soothe and willow bark extract for radiance.' I absolutely agree with the packaging's claim that your skin feels 'clearer, brighter and smoother'. To achieve this I like to layer on the face mask and sit in one expression for five minutes (I normally find that my face goes really tight and hard, that's when I know the mask is drying!). The product comes out of the tube as a cream and dries into a chalky clay like consistency that washes off very easily with warm water. Then, once I've removed all traces of product from my face I like to marvel at the wonder ingredients and my now smooth and soft skin. Seriously, you won't be left disappointed at your face's new found strokeability (not a word, I know, but this best fits!).
Available from Boots, Superdrug and Sainsburys at £5.99 for 100ml this face mask will last you for quite some time as it is advised to be used weekly. I will definitely be repurchasing this face mask when it runs out, for an easily available, and highly affordable product I cannot find fault with it at all!
