I never got round to purchasing the full size, as I’ve been pretty loyal to my holy grail hydrating face mask; the Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask. However, I spotted the full size almost half price during an ASOS sale, and I decided to give it a try as I’ve been loving Bobbi Brown lately.
“Enriched with Coral Grass and Green Algae–powerful moisture magnets–this super creamy yet lightweight mask instantly quenches dry skin with moisturization for a smoother, plumper look.
Used three times a week, it helps repair skin’s natural moisture barrier and reduce the look of fine, dry lines.“
The Bobbi Brown Skin Nourish Mask is £35 / $55 and contains 75ml of product within a metal tube in a baby pink colour. It reminds me of the L’Occitane hand creams, and you have to be really careful not to accidentally squeeze or crush the tube.
Metal tubes like this one are a lot more fragile than plastic, and I’ve had a metal tube like this one end up splitting and going everywhere.
The directions are very simple. You just apply ‘liberally’ to the skin and allow it to absorb for 2-5 minutes before you tissue off any excess, and gently massaging the remaining product into the skin.
The Bobbi Brown Skin Nourish Mask is a thick white gel-cream with a very, very subtle baby pink colour, and it has a very strong herbal scent.
I don’t love the heavy fragrance, and I don’t remember the fragrance being so strong, but it smells like it’s an aromatherapy product or something.
It has a thick consistency, and you do have to apply quite a lot to cover the face, as it doesn’t spread very well over the skin.
I never tissue the mask off myself, as it feels a little pointless as it’s not going to absorb in 2-5 minutes; it takes at least 20 minutes, and even then I still feel a film on the surface of my skin until it’s fully absorbed.
In terms of hydration, the Bobbi Brown Skin Nourish Mask is a nice mask, but it hasn’t blown me away. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling plumped and dewy like the Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask does, and I just don’t love the scent.
I will finish the tube as it’s nice, but it hasn’t wowed me, and I can’t help thinking £35 is very expensive for a face mask which is just ‘nice’.
