Vichy Double Glow Peel Mask

Hi everyone! How crazy is it that it's now October, I'm so happy though because I've got lots of nice things planned for this month, plus the run up to Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year! I'm that person that never even does anything for Halloween other than stay in and watch scary films, but I'm still obsessed! Recently I've been talking about how bad my skin has been so I've been trying out a few different skincare products, especially face masks because I'm so into them at the minute to try and improve it, thankfully my breakouts have calmed down now so I mostly just want to work on the texture of my skin which is very dull and dry. Vichy is a brand that I've had nothing but good experiences with in the past, but I've only really tried their makeup before so when I saw they're new face masks floating around on the internet I thought they looked so interesting and I actually tweeted about how I thought they looked really cool, so when Vichy contacted me asking if I'd like to try one of the face masks I was so excited and of course said yes! 


There is actually three variations of their new face masks and I chose the Double Glow Peel Mask* however there is also the Pore Purifying Clay Mask which is formulated with two types of white clay to absorb impurities and excess sebum and to minimise pores and purify the skin, this one is designed for those with oily to combination skin with congested and blocked pores. There is also the Quenching Mineral Mask which is a gel mask enriched with vitamin B3 and glycerin, this one has a cooling effect which provides instant hydration. I was actually so torn over the peel mask or the Quenching Mineral Mask as that one also sounded perfect for me because I do have dry skin but in the end I went for the peel mask based on the fact that my skin is SO dull and tired, definitely one of my biggest skin issues. 

The Double Glow Peel Mask that I chose is a double action face mask with volcanic rock and AHA to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. This is said to leave skin more smooth and luminous and a pick me up for dull, tired skin. Anything that claims to leave skin luminous and smooth I'm all for because I have a lot of skin texture which prevents makeup from applying smoothly which gets me down so much!


I absolutely love the packaging, the jar feels very heavy and it looks luxurious, to me considering the packaging it does appear more high end however it does not have the high end price, you can get these from Boots for £14, they aren't as cheap as some other drug store products but I still think they're a really good price considering how it performs. You get 75ml of product as well which I think is quite a lot for a face mask plus you don't have to use too much product so I think you will get a lot of use out of this. There is a scent to this product which I did want to mention, I actually do like a scent in my products and this one doesn't bother me at all, I find that it smells quite perfumey so for those who don't like scents you may not be that keen, but I didn't find it overpowering.



One of my favourite things about this product is the gel texture of it, which I really was not expecting as it is also said to have exfoliating properties, the instructions that come with the mask actually state to apply and leave on for five minutes, then massaging into the skin after the five minutes before rinsing it off with water. What I found was that you couldn't really tell the mask was an exfoliant until you massaged it into the skin when you could actually feel what felt like a slightly beady, gritty texture. When you first apply the product it honestly feels so cooling and refreshing, I loved how it felt on the skin so much! You are advised to leave this on the skin for only five minutes which is what I was doing the first few times I'd used it, I'd seen a few people say they had left it on for longer and it made their skin a little bit red, but after a few times I left it on for about 8 minutes instead and I didn't experience any redness but I have no issues with sensitive skin, so if you do I'd definitely suggest only leaving it on for 5 minutes. When it's sitting on the skin it does start to feel tingly but I absolutely love that because I feel like it's actually working and doing something, it's not uncomfortable at all though which is something I was worried about especially because of the word 'peel' in the name it made it seem a bit scary, but thankfully it's not bad at all and it doesn't sting or anything like that!

After I massaged it into the skin and washed it off my skin definitely did feel smoother and so much more refreshed and clean, it did look brighter as well, once I'd applied a moisturiser after using this my skin looked so much nicer and healthier than normal. If you have dull and tired skin like me I'd definitely recommend trying this, I feel like it's a nice pick me up for your skin especially on days when it's looking especially dull. I actually love this I can't wait to use it more, especially in Winter! I think for the price and the amount of product you do get it is worth trying, plus if you think this particularly mask won't be suited to your skin you at least have the option of two other masks which might be more suited to you. I really want to try the Quenching Mineral Mask next after liking this one so much, especially as the weather gets colder my skin gets so much drier. Let me know in the comments if you've tried this and what you think!

  5. I left this one for longer than 5 minutes the first time I tried it and it stung my face! I think this is a good entry level AHA mask, but if you want to beef it up then I'd recommend trying the Oskia Renaissance Mask! xx

  6. I love the packaging too but I prefer masks that are on a tube instead of a jar cause I hate sticking my fingers in it every time I use it! Glad this one gave you the results you needed, every review I read on this product was positive so it must be really good!

  14. I don't use grain exfoliators any more so masks like these that exfoliate the skin in a gentle way are perfect. This sounds like a winner and I'm glad it's not too pricey either x

  17. I'm always reluctant when it comes to face masks as it's hard to really see visible results, but this sounds like a fab pick me up for tired skin, especially in the colder months!
