Any regular readers will already be aware that running a bubble bath and popping on a sheet mask is my favourite way to relax. It’s become something of a Sunday night ritual that sets me up for the start of the week. Although the skincare trend has taken over the high street, I actually prefer to stock up on sheet masks at TK Maxx. My local store is a treasure trove of wonderfully bizarre K-Beauty brands and I always come away with a pile of masks from Tony Moly, Skin 79, Secret Key and Elizavecca, all at a discounted price. I was recently sent a box of four masks from Procoal, a brand that specialises in beauty products (including natural deodorants, teeth whitening kits and shampoo bars) using traceable and ethically sourced ingredients such as activated charcoal.
The Procoal Marine Moisture Mask is a cruelty-free moisturising sheet mask that is formulated in the UK and suitable for all skin types. Each box contains four individually wrapped masks and is currently reduced from £24.99 to £13.99, that’s just under £3.50 per mask. The masks are soaking in serum (approx. 25ml) and are a little tricky to apply. As with most masks, you need to unfold it (I tore the first two around the nose area), peel away the outer layer and place carefully on your face, positioning it comfortably around your eyes, nose and mouth. The mask moulds nicely into the counters of my face and lies there securely. Once removed there is a lot of serum left which can then be gently massaged into your face. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was no sticky residue leftover; the mask is incredibly light and hydrating.
My skin instantly felt and looked soft, plump and glowy. These masks are the perfect pick-me-up, especially if you’ve been finding your skin very dull and dry this winter. The Procoal Marine Moisture Mask is free from parabens, silicon mineral oils and pigment. It contains a unique blend of nutrient-rich Martine Ferments, botanical extracts and Pro-Vitamin B5 to help nourish and hydrate the skin.0
