I bought the following Soap & Glory Mask a few months ago so i thought that now would be the right time for me to write a review:

Product: Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Super Self Heating Deep Pore Detox Mask

Price: £10.00 from Boots

Description: A super self-heating 5 minute Deep Pore Detox Face Mask. With free skin smoothing sponge.

My view: I bought this Soap & Glory Mask a few months ago now and have used it at least a couple of times a week, love it and definitely one of the best face masks i've used.

The mask comes complete with a small sponge, i used this once and didn't bother using it again, i found i got a more thorough clean by just rinsing my face with water with my hands, the sponge is of poor quality and definitely wouldn't last more than one use. On the tube it directs you to use a grape size amount, i used double this to ensure that i had full coverage of my face, i massaged this gently into my skin with my fingertips. The mask as a really fresh smell to it, slightly minty. Once you apply the scrub you feel a tingle and the heat sensation almost straight away, i didn't find this uncomfortable at all, more reassuring that the mask was working. You can rinse away for a fast refresh or leave the mask on for a couple of minutes for a more squeakier clean, i preferred to leave it on a while, i felt it gave my skin more of a glow afterwards the longer i kept it on.

After rinsing my face feels so smooth and as that fresh feeling to it, it 100% gives a thorough clean. After using this product around 6 times i have noticed that the pores on my nose are much less visible and more refined. Result!!

Rating: 9/10 (Missed a point off for the packaging which could be better designed, the tube is too squeezy that sometimes it can be a struggle to screw the lid on back tightly).
