Review: The Face Shop Hydrating milk pack

I love love loooovve masking, I used to not do masks at all but they really make a difference in improving skin texture and dullness. I've been using two from The Face Shop recently, and I love them both!

First up: Hydrating Milk Pack (AU$17)

This wash-off milk pack provides the concentrated care of a salon facial from the comforts of home to hydrate and soften dry, rough skin.

The benefits of milk: A natural nutritional food containing various proteins, minerals and vitamins that help improve skin elasticity and brighten lackluster skin.

The texture is smooth and creamy, but light at the same time. I usually use this after a shower at night, and leave it on for 15 minutes, then follow with my usual skincare routine. I don't find it as immediately hydrating as the Fresh Cucumber pack, or the Hydra Intense Gel mask from Lancome. But my skin feels much softer, and looks brighter the next day!

After shot!

I actually didn't use hand cream for about 3 days prior to this. Don't know if it's really visible, but my skin is definitely more moisturised and softer, and texture is improved. This mask is actually not my favourite, as I feel the Fresh Cucumber pack is more hydrating, but this still does the job. Definitely recommended!

Edit: Forgot to mention that this has a milky smell, like powdered milk or baby formula.
